Biography

John D


I go back many years….


Born and raised on a small farm in Northeastern Alberta, I learned values such as hard work and respect for others naturally ... you just lived that way!!


Upon graduation from high school, I moved to the big city of Edmonton, where I attended the U of A and received my B.Ed. and thereafter taught elementary and junior school or 6 years. I always loved teaching and the “exuberance of youth”. I seemed to enjoy the free spirited kid the most!


After those 6 years, I had a desire to try the business world and became a representative for major consumer electronics manufacturers’. Changing economic times lead me to become a residential real estate appraiser and then to the last 10 years with RE/MAX Real Estate, taking me to be currently a realtor with Homes & Gardens Real Estate.


These years have been very fulfilling in helping first time and experienced buyers navigate through buying or selling a home. Fondly hearing a first time buyer refer to you as “Pops”, only comes in the way of a compliment when you build a relationship based on trust and integrity. On many occasions, that streak of grey hair that I have acquired, gives that experienced older buyer a feeling of my credibility in the industry. I enjoy working with people of all ages and love developing relationships with all my clients and some may even say, “I talk too much”. In the end, I take great pride in giving my clients honest advice and gaining their trust as a person that has their best interest at heart.


I am married and my wife of over 40 years and my two sons have always been very active. Whether it was skiing, running, cycling hiking…. From the time our boys were 4 years old until they left school, I was busy as a director of the community hockey league, driving to freestyle ski competitions, watching them slashing at other lacrosse players or just watching their sporting events with a “Timmies “in my hand. (Never did win a major prize in “Roll up the Rim”)
