The Expert by Your Side

Prior to entering real estate sales, Lisa enjoyed a long career as a Real Estate Paralegal and Legal Assistant.  These  professions marry perfectly and provide Lisa with the required knowledge and diversified expertise in the industry that is essential in navigating today’s real estate industry.  Providing her clients with the added assurance that their real estate needs are met by someone who understands all aspect of the transaction remains top of Lisa’s ambitions.

The Right Real Estate Agent for You

Lisa was born in Calgary, AB but has called the Cowichan Valley home since 1973.  Lisa has lived in several of the surrounding communities that make up the beautiful Cowichan Valley, from Mill Bay to Ladysmith.   She offers clients a seasoned knowledge of the Cowichan Valley and an intimate understanding of what makes each distinct residential niche so special and unique. Lisa specializes in all areas of the Valley particularly the City of Duncan, Cowichan Valley Regional District and North Cowichan which she knows extremely well. She also serves clients seeking or selling in the outlining communities, such as Chemainus, Crofton, Ladysmith, Cowichan Bay, Mill Bay and Lake Cowichan.

Whether you’re buying or selling, it’s ultimately about realizing a dream. I understand how much the decision will mean to you. In fact, that’s one of the reasons I became a real estate agent – to help people buy or sell a home, while making the process easy and trouble-free. Clients often tell me how much they appreciate my expertise, my willingness to be there with them every step of the way, and my determination to get them the best deal. They also tell me I’m friendly and a pleasure to work with – which is quite a compliment!
