Obsessed with Results and Focused on You!
We Are Your Unfair Real Estate Advantage™
For me, being a licensed real estate professional begins and ends with you, my client. I really want to work with you to make your selling or buying a home a positive experience. To facilitate that desire, I am there for you — making myself available and keeping you informed — EVERY STEP OF THE WAY! I always listen carefully to you to gain understanding of your wants and needs. This allows me to provide the very best possible service and services.
My knowledge of today's dynamic real estate market, combined with my marketing and business experiences, means I am uniquely well-equipped to help my clients — whether they are buying or selling property or looking for a valued opinion not tied to a sale.
For Buyers, I have a tried and tested Home-Hunter System that helps ensure I connect my buyer-clients with their perfect home or investment property. For Sellers, I have another time tested process to market your home. I create a customizable plan for each and every client to help ensure their home is presented at its best: Afterall, the first online impression that buyers have about your home is key to getting them to set up in-person viewings. In-person viewings turn into offers and helping you get the best terms or price is another area where we excel. Feel free to set up a no-obligation meeting with me to chat about my home marketing program for you and your home. There really are no "marketing geniuses" in real estate, but we try our very best to meet your goals!
I am a fully experienced, fully certified and a consummate real estate professional. My truest desire is to help my clients with their real estate needs.
Several years ago, I had commissioned a marketing brochure by an international marketing firm. With real estate marketing now being almost 100% online, I have reproduced a portion of its content here:
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 had most recently 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, the multi-billion dollar hospitality company faced some financial challenges with resulted in significant restructuing. As a result, Tom took an early retirement package but his personal drive made him search for more to accomplish. It was time to refocus and Tom entered residential real estate having worked corporately with commercial properties, leasing and business brokerage.
Tom is currently 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 really is quite an elite group of professionals with both experience and accredited expertise.
With over 5,000 REALTORS® to choose from in the Calgary area, you may still be wondering what sets Tom apart. The best way for him to convey his drive for performance and strong customer service is for us to set up an interview. Call anytime!
Raise the bar on professionalism. Be remarkable. Do what others won't (or can't).
To perform the highest level of realty services at fair and market competitive prices. To provide VALUE. To ensure the longevity of our real estate practice through repeat and referral business achieved by exceeding customer satisfaction in all areas including timeliness, attention to detail and service-minded attitudes.
To maintain the highest level of professionalism, integrity, honesty and fairness in our relationships with our suppliers, subcontractors, professional associates and customers.
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 accept or allow to be published 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.

Professors get doctorates, physicians get medical degrees, but REALTORS® get designations and certifications. Some of the advanced certifications and designations that I have achieved are:
Hiring a certified real estate specialist won't cost you any more; and will probably save you money!
