The people on this page are those with whom I have a special professional relationship and form a core of advisors and colleagues who I can count on for the highest quality of ethical and professional advice. No single professional can know everything and in this day and age, it is essential that we surround ourselves with competent, experienced professionals who share similar values of customer and community service, integrity and a willingness to help others.
In addition to those below, as a result of my years practicing as a lawyer in British Columbia, I have developed a network of colleagues who are always available for consultation when necessary through a range of specialties, be it tax law, GST, contract law, builder's liens and title issues. I make a point of keeping up with Real Estate jurisprudence and quite often consult law cases during contract negotiations to ensure that contract wording serves my clients' purposes. We also maintain contact with municipal planners and rezoning experts should there be a need to fast track a process through a municipality by getting things right the first time.
