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 personal note of thanks for connecting me to Dustan. He was stellar to work with -- as you had said he would be. And, he never quit even when we ran into a few roadblocks. He delivered a great rate, great lender and great ratio. I will definitely use his services again.
Dustan Woodhouse Is Awesome!
Hi Derek, (cc ing Dustan)
I just wanted to advise you that I followed your recommendation for a mortgage broker and worked with Dustan Woodhouse and I was immensely impressed with him throughout the entire process!
Dustan was professional, affable, responsive, and informative. It was a very busy and demanding process as I had left little time to complete the many legal processes required to legally separate, transfer the house, and apply for the mortgage. Dustan assisted with every step and reduced my needless anxiety making everything much more easily achievable!
[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.
Now that the dust has settled on my mortgage, I wanted to thank you for everything. This was a very foreign process for me, and I appreciated your patience and availability for all of my questions at all hours of the day. I especially appreciate that you never talked down to me nor treated me like an idiot, just because I didn't know much about mortgages. As someone approaching home ownership for the first time, and on her own, this is huge. I can tell from our conversations and your blog posts that you love what you do, and that is refreshing. I will definitely recommend you to anyone who asks, and you will be my first call should I wish to lock-in, re-finance, or if anything else changes.
