ABOUT ME

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’.

In 2008 I joined both the Real Estate Action Group (REAG) as well the REIN network.  The main focus was on education in any and all things Real Estate related.  Through 2009 the steady positive messages at the monthly events from both Don Campbell and in particular Ozzie Jurock played a key role in prompting a rebuild of our investment property portfolio.
The focus today is on Real Estate as a vehicle for long term cashflow & appreciation.  Having always been self employed, this is our pension plan.

Good Job Dustan

Not only was he able to make the process smooth and easy, he also acquired me a great deal on my mortgage and decreased lawyer's fees!  He surpassed my expectations.

When George was not able to find a lawyer to sign his legal document, I emailed Dustan and George had an appointment within an hour!  I swear if I'm ever in a bad way I'm calling Dustan... cuz he'll know a guy, who knows a guy... 🙂

So thank you again for the recommendation.  Dustan is truly a fantastic mortgage broker... and a really nice man.  I feel very fortunate for the help you both gave me.

Sincerely,


Thanks Again!

[vc_row][vc_column width="1/1"]I mentioned this before, but again I had a great experience working with you. As someone who works for a company with a “customers first” focus, I really appreciate the time and effort you dedicate to your clients. You are truly a master of your craft and I will definitely continue to refer my friends and family to you J

 

Things are going very well with the new property, just wrapping up painting and we should be moving in soon.

 

Thanks again![/vc_column][/vc_row]


Thanks Dustan!

As our mortgage term approached it's end, my wife and i began looking into renewal option. This was our first time owning and also renewing. I initially contacted Dustan several months before the renewal date. We discussed the different options available and in the end of those calls, my wife and I decided to finish renovations on our home in hopes of maximizing any potential equity in the property...

Needless to say, DIY projects usually take longer than estimated. I called Dustan up about 6 weeks before my renewal date in a panic and with a half finished basement. After a few calls back and forth, my wife and I chose the option that best met our needs. Dustan was very patient and professional through the entire process. We look forward to working with Dustan in the future and we recommend him to anyone else who wants a smooth and as stress free as can be mortgage.


Very Happy

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.
Thank you,
P.S. Zoom! cleaners were excellent and it helped us a lot when we really needed it.
