Norfolk native, wannabe chef, homebody turned cruising fanatic, collector of fine dining menus, ridiculously early riser always looking for a stronger brew of morning mud. I’m “REALTOR® Ray” AKA “Chef Raymond”, “Captain”, “Raymondo”, and “Ray Jr.”.
Real estate is the only career I’ve even known. While growing up, I always dreamed of being a world renowned chef, yet my high school guidance counselor convinced my parents that a Bachelor of Commerce was best for my future. So off to McMaster University I went where I was exposed to general business principles, accounting, finance, human resources, statistics, marketing, economics, and information systems … perfect pre-requisites for a real estate broker!
Anyone who knows me well will tell you I’m not very spontaneous (not to say that I’m boring). There are a couple of exceptions, like the day I decided to open my own real estate brokerage, and the day I hired Rachel without ever speaking to OR meeting her (I creeped her on Facebook first though)! Both are funny stories and I’d love to tell you about both!
As a real estate broker, I don’t sell houses; houses sell themselves! No matter what, I can’t convince buyers to purchase a house unless the buyers can picture themselves at home in a particular property. I prefer to consider myself your marketing consultant. It is my job to help educate you about the market, help you establish a competitive market position that will create a favourable response from today’s buyers and execute a customized marketing plan. With this information in mind, I will market your property and showcase its merits, celebrate the local lifestyle and facilitate the transaction. You’re trusting me with one of your most valuable possessions. I take this responsibility very seriously.
