This is Five Sails Realty

We want our Realtors to have all the glory

I established Five Sails Realty in 2019 with a singular goal:
"To create a Canadian real estate brokerage that allows Realtors to service their clients however they wish."

Our primary focus as a licensed brokerage is very simple: We are in business to efficiently convey our Realtor's deals and to provide each of them with the regulatory oversight that is required. Nothing else.

There have been many changes within our industry in the past thirty years, primarily associated with regulatory oversight and consumer protection. These changes, when combined with social media and all the technological advances, have encouraged Realtors to become far more independent. This desire for independence gave me the inspiration to create a new brokerage that would not follow the old-school franchise model. Instead, Five Sails Realty sits in the background and gives Realtors the freedom to create their own individual brand.

At Five Sails Realty we have stripped away all the unnecessary and expensive fluff associated with a typical franchise brokerage. Our business model is extremely lean, best demonstrated by our head office that is located within the WeWork suite of offices in downtown Vancouver. The co-work environment and associated low overheads allow us to offer the exceptional terms that all our Realtors enjoy.

Most importantly, every Realtor who chooses to hang his or her license at Five Sails Realty is able to call on me at at any time, should they need additional advice on any issue. My real estate experience is extensive:
  • Obtained my BC Realtor license in 1989, my Property Manager certification in 1999 and qualified as a Managing Broker in 2003;
  • Previously a commercial Realtor with Colliers International in Vancouver and Hong Kong;
  • Project sales teams in numerous resort and urban developments in Whistler and Vancouver;
  • Leadership role with sales and marketing teams in Colorado, The Caribbean, Dubai, Hong Kong, The Philippines, Mauritius and China;
  • A successful Whistler Realtor since 1997;
  • Managing Broker of other BC brokerages prior to establishing Five Sails Realty.
