    Strengths

    John believes that a cutting-edge property presentation is one of the most important strategies to ensure his clients’ success. He is constantly striving to improve and offer the best property presentation available. Finding solutions through creativity is an instinct of John’s that is important to market rural and recreational property, and to negotiate a sale.

    Interests

    Travel around the world for business and pleasure has been a passion with 14 country stamps on John’s passport. Sailing in Mexico, around Vancouver Island and many lakes within the province added to the growing interest of being on the move.

    With these experiences, John became a bold cook, pushing his boundaries with charcuterie, home-made pasta, breads, sauces and complex flavourful dishes from his travels.

    The outdoors is where John and Delwyn want to be, along with their Irish Setter, Bronco.
