The Calgary Area Real Estate Team That's Obsessed with Results and Focused on You!
We Are Your Unfair Real Estate Advantage™
Tom thrives on being highly knowledgeable about the real estate market and the technologies required to help his clients navigate today’s market space. At the end of the day, the most important thing to Tom is that his client relationships are built on trust, expectations are exceeded, and that everyone receives a "5-Star" experience. He truly earns his position as his client’s trusted real estate advisor. And, you’ll find that relationships don’t end with the purchase or sale of a home – just ask his clients and colleagues across the country.
Prior to his long career in real estate, Tom honed his communication and negotiation skills as an operations and marketing executive, business coach and director at Canada’s largest, integrated foodservice and hospitality company for 13 years. He brings these skills, passion and attention to detail to his work each day. Tom is just as comfortable in the boardroom as he is one-on-one with the front-line team.
Tom is originally from small-town Ontario and grew up in the Toronto area. Hard work, commitment and getting results are not foreign to Tom. It really started at an early age: He completed both high school and university with accelerated programs and increased class-load to shorten each by a full year. He holds a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Toronto, and post-graduate certificates from both the University of Guelph’s School of Hospitality, Food & Tourism Management and the Haskayne School of Business at the University of Calgary. Tom has assisted in designing, marketing and opening many dozens of small business across Canada. Known as a business turnaround specialist, brand ambassador, business coach and a franchisee advocate, he has helped many dozens or small businesses and entrepreneurs regain growth and profitability. As a long-time resident of northwest Calgary, Tom’s knowledge of the Calgary real estate market is unparalleled. Tom is an avid runner, cyclist, photographic hobbiest and life-long learner.
In 2006, Tom took an early retirement package brought about due to the hospitality company's significant reorganization. It was time to refocus and Tom entered residential real estate having worked corporately with commercial properties, leasing and business brokerage.
Tom is licensed as an Associate Broker in the Province of Alberta to trade in real estate. In Alberta, only about 5 percent of real estate agents have invested the time, energy and expense to earn this broker-level licence classification, so it is quite an elite group of professionals with both experience and accredited expertise.

It's not my goal to be the biggest team or "a top-10 earner": My goal is to have the very best service, the most efficient processes and to provide the best advice we can. It's not a numbers game, it's a people business! As a result, I don't publish gross commission "sales" awards.
I firmly believe that people deserve an exceptional real estate experience. That exceptional real estate experience starts with an exceptional real estate agent that's backed up by a recognized and forward thinking real estate brand. You can rely on me to deliver that exceptional experience, whether you are buying or selling your first home or your tenth.

Hiring a certified real estate specialist won't cost you any more; and will probably save you money!
