Read what Dave's clients have to say.
Dave loves people and his favourite thing about his job is getting to know his clients and hosting family fun, client appreciation events throughout the year. In his spare time, you can find Dave at the gym, playing on multiple hockey teams and spending time with his wife Kristy and daughter Kashton.
Dave places a high value on giving back. He sits on the board of directors at Ruben’s Shoes Society

Austin spent his formative years in Langley, British Columbia, where he pursued an affluent career playing junior and college level hockey. After completing his formal education in Economics at Simon Fraser University, Austin decided to pursue his passion for Real Estate. His desire to provide an exceptional customer experience, while sustaining an honest approach with his clients, has allowed him to quickly establish a name for himself within the financial/real estate industries. Austin believes that maintaining complete transparency and honesty with his clients is the best way to ensure that they make the most sound and informed decisions.
Having grown up in the Fraser Valley, Austin understands the importance of putting down roots in a community that is both inclusive and diverse. It is with this innate understanding that Austin strives to be an advocate for his clients as they pursue the task of purchasing and selling their home. Austin takes great care in understanding his client’s needs, while using his knowledge of the industry to help guide them through the task of reaching their investment goals.
In his spare time, Austin enjoys playing golf, exploring the many different areas of the Lower Mainland, and spending quality time with friends and family. He is confident in his ability to help those that seek his expertise and is positive that he will generate the best outcome for his client's property investments.
With a great emphasis on the marketing and the presentation of his listings along with client care and retention, Dave relies heavily on his wife Kristy to ensure all marketing and client touches and events (when we can have them again) are done with care and effort.
Kristy is also heavily involved with Ruben’s Shoes Society, a local non-profit that builds schools and develops education-based programs around the world. When she’s not working you can find Kristy caring for her and Dave’s daughter, Kashton, sipping coffee at a local coffee shop or walking the Seawall. Jk, she’s probably at home watching Netflix.
