Born and raised in North Vancouver, and having lived in North and West Vancouver, Vancouver, and Burnaby, Mike offers a depth of
localized knowledge that simply can’t be taught.
Born to a family of bankers, Mike spent 5 years working in the banking field early in his career, laying a solid foundation for his understanding of financial institutions and lending practices. But before eventually launching his real estate career, Mike quickly established himself as a leader in the field of Security, Community Safety and Crime Prevention. After achieving a Bachelor's Degree in Criminology at Simon Fraser University, with a focus on Crime Prevention through Environmental Design and building design, Mike worked as a provincially-licensed corporate security consultant. This involved drafting proposals, negotiating contracts and providing high-level consulting services on major security and crime-prevention projects for corporations, government agencies, hospitals and transit systems. Recognized in the industry for his astute analytical skills and communication abilities, Mike was then recruited to the provincial Ministry of Public Safety & Solicitor General and federal Justice Canada, where he spent 5 years overseeing major crime-prevention partnership initiatives and community funding programs (including 3 years in managerial roles).
Mike’s passion for Real Estate however developed quickly after he began investing in property himself, and it wasn’t long before this interest finally drew him away from the public sector to begin a full-time career selling residential real estate.
As a professional Realtor, Mike has excelled in the business, achieving consistent recognition for sales achievements each and every year. In 2007, Mike received the RE/MAX Platinum Club Award, one of the highest sales volume awards offered by RE/MAX of Western Canada. And in 2011, he received the prestigious "RE/MAX Hall of Fame" Award, recognizing his consistently high level of sales achievement throughout his career.
