My Story ·
I love my career as a Real Estate Professional.
Born and raised in Langley, I chose to specialize in this area. I have watched Langley transform into what it is today. Growing up I was a member of Otter 4-H Lamb Club, Langley Pony Club, Langley United Soccer and the gymnastics club. I graduated from DW Poppy Secondary. I still enjoy an active lifestyle and frequently run around Strawberry Hills with our family dog. Family is very important to me and one of the reasons I chose Real Estate as a career. With the flexible hours and the ability to work from home, it becomes a lifestyle, rather than a job.
I believe in specializing in one area. If I have a client moving to another area, I am always happy to get them in contact with a trusted agent who specializes in THAT area. Having lived in Langley my entire life, I am very familiar with all the changes taking place. I joke with my clients “ Ask me anything ! “ Where the schools are, the best commuter routes, which areas are more popular, best shopping, entertainment and the new developments coming up. I live on acreage, and I have a number of clients moving east and getting into small acreages. Being on a drilled well and a septic field, can be quite intimidating. I have contacts in those areas, I can help them understand and be comfortable with the transition.

Langley is a great place to live, and I would be more than happy to show you some fantastic places. A big Thank you to all my clients, friends and family for your continued support.

   Here are a few words from clients……



Joanne was great to deal with - very patient with me as I've not been in the selling or buying market for a number of years. Both my new purchase and the sale of my home went smoothly and very quickly. Joanne was always quick to respond or follow up and was always professional and a pleasure to deal with. Thanks for a job well done!

I first met Joanne ten years ago when she sold my daughter a condo. I found her very pleasant to deal with. She has kept in touch over the years. When it came time to sell my daughter's condo and my house, I called her because I had full confidence in her professional ability. She has been very helpful and willing to give extra attention to the details. She was always quick to respond to questions. It was a pleasure dealing with Joanne.

 Joanne was a pleasure to work with for selling my home. She provided me with updates on the Real Estate markets and was always professional when we met. I would definitely recommend her to my family and friends.

Sales and new listings continue to set records in the Fraser Valley

 SURREY, BC – The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board’s Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) saw the second highest number of property sales and the highest number of new listings in August within the last two decades, when 2,298 sales were recorded in August 2005. 

The FVREB processed a total of 2,039 sales in August, a decrease of 2.9 per cent compared to sales in July, but an increase of 57.2 per cent compared to the 1,297 sales during August of last year. Last month’s sales were 39 per cent above the ten-year average for August, representing the highest August in the last decade and second only to what was recorded back in August 2005.

 Chris Shields, President of the Board, indicated that, “we are seeing better sales volumes increase month over month because buyers are recognizing that the Fraser Valley offers increased choice and diversified housing opportunities, while offering more value as well.”

 “In an unusual situation given the pandemic, we remain cautiously optimistic and are encouraged by the numbers we are seeing,” added Shields. 

The Fraser Valley Board received 3,309 new listings in August, a 6.8 per cent decrease compared to July’s intake of 3,549 new listings and a 40.4 per cent increase compared to August of last year. August’s new listings were 28.9 per cent above the ten-year average for the month, the highest in the last ten years. Last month finished with 7,404 active listings, an increase of 0.9 per cent compared to July’s inventory and a decrease of 7.9 per cent year-over-year.

 Baldev Gill, Chief Executive Officer of the Board, adds, “the highly competitive market with multiple offers and shorter days on market for various properties, provides further indication of the role REALTORS® are playing in this market. What we hear from our Realtor members is how consumers are seeking their guidance, advice and expertise during these unusual times.” 

In August, the average number of days to sell an apartment was 36; 24 for townhomes, and 31 for single family detached.
