GREAT FROM GOOD TO

WHERE GOOD BECOME GREAT Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce’s Business Excellence Awards are fast approaching. The event is always a popular draw in the business community, and the largest in the region, regularly attracting more than 500 people. This year’s event will be held at Tradex on Nov. 20 and will recognize businesses and owners who stand out from the crowd in 11 categories. A total of 91 nominees have been listed.

The entertainment for this year is Vancouver’s Drum Cafe, which is making a return to Abbotsford after a six-year absence. This high-energy group is Canada’s premier interactive drumming company, and includes the audience in its shows by handing out small drums for each attendee. “They’re amazing,” said event coordinator Carole Jorgensen. “It’s energetic and fun.”

We’ve recently finished the 3rd Quarter of 2013 and Real Estate activity in Abbotsford continues to be mixed, sometimes in favour of the Seller and sometimes in favour of the Buyer; although predictions are indicating slow improvement for 2014. The number of properties selling has increased but prices continue to be relatively unchanged. If you’d like to draw upon my over 22 years of experience, call or email me anytime to discuss your specific plans or ask for any Real Estate advice.

But it isn’t all work! I am also passionate about old cars, well, almost anything with a motor and wheels. I am currently restoring a ‘66 Impala SS. The family is less enthusiastic about this hobby when there is work to be done but loves to ride in the 70 Dart or on the collector Harley on a sunny weekend.

I am a dedicated, professional Realtor with strong roots in the Abbotsford community and a passion for doing the best for my clients. I moved from Surrey to Abbotsford in 1985 and found a connection with the town and people above and beyond my expectations. I married Ingrid Smith in 1994 and we committed to making Abbotsford our family home. My career continued in sales and management for the next twenty years. In 2006 I took the plunge into Real Estate, my passion and greatest strength has always been working closely with my clients and providing the level of service and professionalism I would like to receive myself. The result has been beyond my dreams. It is with gratitude that I have seen my business grow with the values I bring, my relationships with my clients which often build into great friendships, and the support of my family.

Geoff welcomes the opportunity to get to know you and your family.

Well folks, I originally started selling farms and ranches many years ago, in 1979, and was lucky to be joined by my son for the last 14 years.  We do all kinds of farms!  We know them and it is our love to see agriculture continue, wether it is in the valley or the 100 Mile House Area.  Having lived on a farm our whole life with a strong University background in agriculture we get the job done.  We offer  the best of advertising, pictorial promotions, websites, and overseas promotions.  We try to keep in touch with the latest municipal, provincial, and federal changes, which will encourage the new farmer starting out. 

Call me anytime. I look forward to hearing from you.
