My love affair with Salt Spring began many years ago when I worked at the Empress Hotel in Victoria. I would visit the island with my friends every chance I could. I have fond memories of exploring and discovering hidden pockets of the Island. Each new discovery was a thrill.

Many years have passed since I first stepped foot on the Island but my sense of wonderment is still there. I am very happy to finally be able to call Salt Spring home.

There were a few ‘pit-stops’ along the way….I grew up in Toronto but life took me first to Victoria, then New York, London (10 years), Madrid and Hong Kong. I returned to Toronto in 2005.

Prior to moving to Salt Spring Island, I had been successfully selling real estate in Toronto for the past decade. In 2016, I achieved the Royal Lepage Diamond Award and ranked within the top 3% of 17,000+ Royal Lepage Agents Nationally. I also achieved the Award of Excellence for multiple years of award winning sales achievement.

I am a Real Estate Advisor with Engel & Völkers and I bring with me a wealth of real estate experience that I hope will assist both buyers and sellers with all of their Salt Spring Island real estate needs. 

When I’m not doing the real estate thing, I enjoy spending time with my partner Daniel, our two dogs Sadie and Ted, tackling some renovation project, working in the garden, volunteering or exploring the fantastic Island we all call home.

We’re in this TOGETHERThe thing I love about my job the most is making my clients happy; happy from the first meetings I have with them to long after the deals are done. Knowing that I have done the best job possible for my clients is fundamental to how I conduct my business. If you are buying a property on Salt Spring Island, my role is to ensure that we work together to find the best possible home to suit ALL of your needs. If you are selling, I will ensure that your property shows it’s best and achieves the highest sale price possible in the shortest period of time.

We would recommend Geoff to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He is extremely helpful, responsive, knowledgeable, and really understood what we were looking for. He made our home buying experience a lot easier and it was very comforting knowing he was always there to answer any questions we had. He definitely goes above & beyond and it was such a pleasure working with him!

It is without hesitation that we recommend Geoff. He’s an absolute professional, he knows the business back to front and it was more than clear that he really enjoys what he does. Geoff helped us get the home of our dreams, and did so by being informative and honest. He was always flexible, quick to respond to any questions we had and always willing to go the extra mile. Over the course of the process he also became a friend. He’s a no-nonsense, honest realtor. He makes sure that you know everything you need to know, and he cares as much as you do about getting you the best home possible. Geoff, we can’t thank you enough, it was an absolute pleasure working with you.

The best, hands down! Geoff helped me purchase my first home and I couldn’t be happier. He made sure I got what I was looking for and steered me clear of pitfalls and was honest when he thought I was focusing on the wrong things. He provided so much good advice! Geoff is thoughtful, professional and looked out for my best interest. I still go to Geoff for advice on my property and he never fails to respond and help. He has become a family friend! Thank you Geoff.

We are so glad Geoff helped us purchase our house! As first time home buyers, we were apprehensive of the process, but Geoff made it easy for us. He was always available to us when questions came up, and provided great advice and guidance. Thank you, Geoff!

‘Not only were looking for a home, we were looking to make Canada our home. In that respect Geoff probably had to work harder with us than most. (We literally had just got off the plane, he met us with our suitcases and made sure we found somewhere to rent too.) And not only did he give us a great crash course in how to buy property in Toronto he was also super attentive, understanding and supportive. It always felt like Geoff had our very best interests at heart. For that we will be eternally grateful.’
