Chad, and his story…
Big or small, Chad can sell them all.....
Chad’s interest in real estate began long before he became a realtor in 2003. In 1970 his father retired from his career to pursue his passion in construction and real estate. Observing his father’s success over the subsequent years, buying, selling, renovating and building real estate projects instilled principals of the business that would open his mind to the option of working in the same industry. When Chad entered the workforce he didn’t immediately go to real estate. He took several career paths which enriched his abilities that prepared him for the real estate career he loves today. Logistics, labor negotiator, home-care medical oxygen tech, and owner of a real estate appraisal company are the pillars of what has formed his business in real estate.
In the years past 2003, while becoming the realtor he is today, he took on many renovation projects which became rentals properties. He also became very involved in multiple strata councils of these buildings with a combined experience of over 50 years as president, author of new bylaws, and lead hand in rejuvenation projects of entire buildings.
