Definition of Cute Cottage. This is a refurbished older home that has character throughout. You will see the old and new that work so well together, making it such a special place to call your cottage. It all starts on a covered front porch where you enter a large 4 season sunroom with propane stove, that can also be used as a guest room. The kitchen may be small, but it is totally upgraded and functional located right beside the dining area and a large open living space with plenty of room for entertaining. It is nice and bright, with a really comfortable flow. The upstairs is another level of cuteness, with a long narrow loft that also lends to itself to act as a rec room or guest room. The large bedroom has 2 double beds , walk in closet and 2 storage spaces that are almost the whole length of the house. Off the loft is a roof top deck that allows you to see far and wide all the valley and mountains have to offer. The basement is clean and used for storage, and utilities. The XLarge back deck is ideal for that cozy outdoor living space. There is a firepit, shed, garage and carport with lane access. The yard is fully landscaped with small low maintenance gardens and so private you wouldn't even know this home was there from the main street view. It is located less than 1km to the public Windermere Beach with playground. Approx. 6 min walk. The Windermere corner store and pizza public market are conveniently located on the corner of this street for you.

Before we work together you would probably like to know something about me. With my two girls pursuing their respective careers in Vancouver and Copenhagen, I now pursue my three other passions in life: golf, guitar and real estate.

Yes, real estate really is a passion for me. I have been involved in all aspects of it for over 40 years now and I still love it. Since graduating with a Commerce degree from University of Alberta in 1977, I spent 5 years as a commercial REALTOR in Edmonton, followed by 10 years of commercial real estate acquisitions and dispositions in Phoenix Arizona. In 1991, I returned to Invermere, my childhood summer home, where I have focused on residential real estate for the past 27 years.

Throughout my career I have invested in all aspects of real estate including developing a shopping centre, building spec homes and buying land and buildings for long term investments. I have had the opportunity to work with a wide-range of clients, matching properties to families, passionate entrepreneurs like Kicking Horse Coffee, and even some of my hockey heroes.

While in Invermere, I started the Royal LePage Rockies West Realty firm which grew from 2 people to 20 in the course of 12 years. Along the way I achieved a goal that most would say was impossible: I produced a large enough volume of sales to become listed in the top 1% for Royal LePage nationally in 2006. In 2007, I sold the company and went to work for Coldwell Banker Windermere Valley Realty in 2009 and ultimately bought that company in 2012. With it just being my sole proprietor business  I have more time to pursue my passions and provide more personalized service for my many clients. I hope that you can become one of them in the near future.

Looking forward to meeting you!
