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 our office administrator 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.
