Born and raised in Port Moody, BC.
My wife Kerry and I became residents of Anmore in 1996 purchasing our third home together in as many years, to this day we remain in Anmore, although on house #5 since 1996.
Since that First home we have also added children, dogs and cats to our lives.
Most weekends involve a trip up and down a mountain on foot, bike, or skiis. Although the number of two wheeled devices has edged out the skiis the past few years as our amazing climate allows things like Road-biking in February, Mtn biking in December, and epic hikes in March. That side my life is viewable on Facebook, and if you share similar passions please feel free to connect.
Along the way we have bought, and unfortunately sold (never sell!) investment properties in Vancouver, and the Tri-Cities. Both industrial and residential properties. A goal we currently share is to add one new property to our portfolio each year, and to never ever sell any of our properties ever again.
One of my favourite refrains is ‘one never regrets the properties they buy, but regrets every single one sold’.
A short bio written by a trade publication during my first year in this business can be found here.
Your brokering services were so much more than enough to affirm the high regard the Smiths hold you in. You're going to be utterly buried in clientele by the time I'm done recommending you. Fair warning.
Congratulations on your publication, as well!
Thanks For All Your Help!
I worked with Dustan while buying my first apartment. As a young first time home buyer I was very nervous, stressed and not sure what to expect about the entire process of securing financing. Dustan was very helpful in clearly explaining the steps, what I would need and how everything worked as well as what to expect out of the entire process. I would highly recommend Dustan to anyone looking to buy a new home.
Dustan is the best
Dustan is the best residential mortgage broker in the business. He has high integrity and will look after your needs before his, even if it means he doesn't get paid. (i.e. he helped me work out a penalty free plan with my current lender)
I always appreciated your advice to us. Hey, you got us out of our very comfortable rental and back into property ownership. We would have done it eventually but an hour call with you got me motivated to get back in there and it ended up being great timing. Thank you.
