Brent has lived on the North Shore for over 60 years. He grew up in Dundarave, attending Irwin Park Elementary, Pauline Johnson, and eventually graduated from the now torn down Hillside Secondary. Brent attended post-Secondary at both Capilano College, and U.B.C.
After his formal education Brent pursued sales careers with I.B.M., and the retail industry working for Ingledew Shoes, and The Swedish Jeweler. In 1983 he embraced the opportunity to jump into a real estate career, and has never looked back.
Brent originally joined Bell Realty in West Vancouver in 1983 and was fortunate to achieve M.L.S. Medallion status in his first year. After six record breaking sales years, he was encouraged to open his own Company, and in December 1989 he partnered to open Re/Max Masters in West Vancouver.
In 1996 Brent sold his company interests and returned to his first love, selling Real Estate. For over thirty years now he has successfully assisted clients make important home moves having sold well over 1000 homes totaling hundreds of millions of dollars. Brent has received many prominent personal awards including the very prestigious status of “Life Member” of the Vancouver Real Estate Board, as well as the Re/Max “Hall of Fame.”
Brent is happily married to his wife Marliese. They both love nature and animals. You will often see them outdoors enjoying golfing, hiking, cycling , gardening, and snow shoeing. They are also very passionate about cooking and entertaining. Brent has two children, Christine & Mark both living in the lower mainland. Brent & Marliese look forward to their summer getaways to Langford Lake on Vancouver Island, and annual winter holidays to Maui.
Strange but True:
Brent’s father was a very successful stock broker in Vancouver from 1960-1973. He decided to retire early and chose to move to India and become a monk. Brent’s sister Susan is a monk as well having moved there in 1980. Brent has enjoyed his many visits to the beautifully spiritual “Sivananda Ashram” in the town of Rishikesh.
While Brent's father recently passed away, his sister is alive and well.
