Simon was born and raised in the Lower Mainland. Prior to entering the real estate industry, Simon worked as an Aircraft Maintenance Engineer where he serviced aerial firefighting aircrafts during the fire season across the country. There, he was introduced to real estate by a colleague and began his career as an assistant in 2006. One year later in 2007, he became licensed and left his job as an engineer to pursue a new adventure as a Realtor.
Since he was young, Simon has always been drawn to building and fixing things. He grew up playing hockey and still plays today when the chance arises, such as in the occasional charity tournament. Currently, his biggest passion is golf. He enjoys being outside, the competitive environment, getting light exercise in, all while spending time with friends. Simon also enjoys reading anything from labels and mundane instructions, to classic novels and books on finance.
The most rewarding part of the job to him is seeing the happy faces of clients when they have finally found and secured their new home. Simon is dedicated to ensuring his clients are well-informed throughout the entire process, so that they can feel happy and confident with their final decisions. He finds the most joy in the home preparation process that takes place before a seller’s home hits the market. Seeing the completed transformation of an everyday home into a show home is always a source of joy to both Simon and his clients. His motivation is that his clients can relax and be excited for what will follow their home journey of either buying or selling. He has counted that there are 147 tasks a realtor will do throughout a transaction, and it is one of his goals to master every single one of them!
