Our 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.

Sales and new listings reach near record-setting numbers in the Fraser Valley 

SURREY, BC – The Fraser Valley Real Estate Board’s Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) saw the second-highest number of both property sales and new listings ever recorded in July. 

The FVREB processed a total of 2,100 sales in July, an increase of 22.2 per cent compared to sales in June and an increase of 44 per cent compared to the 1,458 sales during July of last year. Last month’s sales were 25.5 per cent above the tenyear average for July and second only to July 2015.

 Chris Shields, President of the Board, observes, “In the context of the current pandemic environment, our market is significantly ahead of what we anticipated. We’re seeing market conditions representing a seller’s market for townhomes and single-family homes in the Fraser Valley. For example, in North Delta, Cloverdale, Langley, Abbotsford and Mission, for every 100 active detached listings, 40 or more sold in July.”

 “We attribute it to continued pent-up demand from what would have been a strong spring market for us; and clearly, near record-setting low interest rates. Buyers should take note that in some of our communities, the lack of supply and increase in demand is putting upward pressure on home prices. The average price of a detached home in our region set a record high in July, last set two years ago during the same month.” 

The Fraser Valley Board received 3,549 new listings in July, a 2.7 per cent increase compared to June’s intake of 3,456 new listings and a 26.9 per cent increase compared to July of last year. July’s new listings were 18.3 per cent above the ten-year average for the month and second only to July 2008. Last month finished with 7,341 active listings, an increase of 3.9 per cent compared to June’s inventory and a decrease of 12 per cent year-over-year. 

Baldev Gill, Chief Executive Officer of the Board, adds, “The real estate profession has worked hard to make the buying and selling process safe during this pandemic and consumers have responded. Homeownership is a prudent, long-term investment strategy that isn’t as vulnerable to short-term fluctuations, and in this period of economic uncertainty, it’s encouraging to see the strong demand currently for Fraser Valley real estate.”

 In July, the average number of days to sell an apartment was 34; 28 for townhomes and 34 for single family detached. MLS® HPI Benchmark Price Activity
