Welcome! I’m so glad you’ve found me.
I’ve had the privilege and pleasure of being a REALTOR® in Calgary since 2005 and have built a successful business by helping people like you buy and sell property.
I’m proud to say that over 85% of my business comes from past clients and referrals. These satisfied clients have spread the word about the great service they’ve received from me and my brokerage, Royal LePage Benchmark.
Every one of my clients is unique, and that is exactly how I treat them. I don’t measure my success by sales, but by the relationships I build along the way. My goal is to take the complex process of buying and selling real estate and make it a simple one.
So whether you are thinking about buying, selling or investing, give me a call - I would be happy to meet or talk with you to determine how I can help.

Consumers can now search by commute time for bike, car, transit or on foot
TORONTO, May 17, 2016 – Consumers can now calculate commute times as part of their considerations when deciding where to buy a home. New functionality on Royal LePage’s national website, royallepage.ca, provides user-friendly, front-and-centre details on how long it takes to travel between a desired neighbourhood and work, or other frequently-visited places.
Here, the map displays the area within a 30 minute walk of “The Forks, Winnipeg, MB.
Visitors to the site can use the “By Travel Time” tab prominently displayed on the homepage to enter a starting point, which can be a landmark, neighbourhood or specific address. For example, the landmark CN Tower in Toronto could be entered, or a neighbourhood such as Yaletown in Vancouver, or a specific address, such as a school. Once the starting location is set, a desired commute duration is entered, along with a mode of transportation, to begin the search. The result is a map, overlaid with property listings.
“We know that for many homebuyers, one of the biggest considerations is commute times,” says Carolyn Cheng, Chief Operation Officer of Royal LePage. “The travel between home and work or a frequently-visited spot really matters to people, and this functionality answers that need with ease of use and prominent positioning on our national website.”
The new feature adds another layer of functionality to help consumers with the many decisions they will make in the process of buying a home.
