Looking for a Real Estate Agent who puts you first?
If you’re planning to buy or sell a home, you want the process to go successfully. If you’re selling, success means getting your property sold quickly and for the highest price possible. If you’re buying, it means finding your next dream home and getting into it, affordably. On top of that, if you’re like most of my satisfied customers, you also want everything to go smoothly, with as little stress as possible.
How can you ensure all that happens? By working with a real estate agent who truly puts you first.
I am proud to be the real estate agent of choice for those who want a great experience buying or selling a home. My “clients-first” approach means that you’ll be working with a professional who listens to you, provides expert advice, and works hard on your behalf.
Born and raised in Europe (The Netherlands), I went to law school and with my masters in hand, I started working for the National Ombudsman until I joined the entertainment industry as a corporate lawyer of Bertelsmann Music Group (BMG International, with record labels RCA/Arista representing world famous artists like Whitney Houston, Elvis Presley, Usher, Pink, Alicia Keys).
After working for many years as Director Legal & Business Affairs for the BMG Entertainment offices in the Benelux I decided it was time for a change, and our family (3 teenagers) immigrated to Canada in 2007.
We absolutely fell in love with the lifestyle of Canadians and the astonishing beauty of the Okanagan valley in particular, and working and living here is something that I appreciate every day. I’m thankful being able to sell/buy real estate for clients with the same love for the wonderful city of Kelowna!

The Expert by Your Side
When you’re selling: My track record of success means I know how to showcase your house effectively, market and promote it so that it attracts qualified buyers and get it SOLD for the highest price. Throughout the process, I am with you every step of the way, making sure your questions are answered, all the details are handled expertly, and the entire experience is a positive one.
When you’re buying: My expertise in the local market means I can introduce you to homes that meet your criteria — and notify you immediately of brand new listings. I can advise you on what to look for when viewing a home, so you don’t make a catastrophic mistake, and I can arm you with in-depth details on every property you see. When you find a home you fall in love with, I definitely know how to negotiate effectively so you acquire that property, at the best possible price. In fact, nothing pleases me more than saying, “The home is yours”.
The Right Real Estate Agents for You
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 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, 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 — quite the compliment!
