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.
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.
I've had a lot of time to soak into my new house and the neighbourhood and we really love it.
I often think back about how I ended up there and both of you gentlemen always pop into my head.
I wanted to do something special after the fact but until I actually do I wanted to make sure you both knew how much I appreciate your services.
Colin I would never have had the opportunity to buy our family house if it wasn't for your tenacity in finding us the right house and truly listening to each of our wants.
Dustan you got me the best possible rate and the word persistence doesn't do you justice. Ultimately you are saving me money for the next 20-30 years until I can pay off the mortgage.
I always try to name drop both of you when discussing the house and and the opportunity you created for me. I hope that it helps sometime in the future as I know the value and power of referral marketing.
On top of all that your both top blokes, as my Father-in-law would say.
P.S. Zoom! cleaners were excellent and it helped us a lot when we really needed it.
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)
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.
