Originally from Alberta, Shawn lived in Vancouver for 14 years and owned a condo downtown before relocating to Nanaimo in 2009. He spent three years researching property values throughout B.C. before deciding Nanaimo was the best move for his family.
With his experience of both relocating and owning income properties, Shawn provides valuable insight to help clients maximize their return on investment when buying or selling. He also brings a background in elite customer service. Shawn worked for several years as the bell captain at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, where he took care of royalty and movie stars, earning multiple awards for outstanding guest service. In 2011 Shawn started a courier business that delivered exclusively for a dental lab in Vancouver and carefully looked after its clients, a group of Vancouver Island dentists and orthodontists. He has built a reputation on his excellent rapport with clients and putting them first, something he considers paramount in the real estate industry.
When he isn’t matching up clients with their dream homes, Shawn can be found on the water, fishing for steelhead, salmon, and trout, and will, on occasion, divulge the hotspots where he’s catching them. Married to his high school sweetheart, Shawn and his wife enjoy camping, swimming and hiking the West Coast Trail with their son and daughter.
