Simon embodies a rare combination of focus and drive; he sees what needs doing and in short order it’s done. His secret to success is to never stop moving – and he doesn’t! When he isn’t drumming up offers on a listing, showing properties to prospective buyers or working on getting new listings, he’s out riding and enjoying the outdoors.  If that sounds intense, rest assured, it comes in a very friendly package.

Simon is as affable as he is demanding, moving comfortably between spending quality time with his friends and family on a Saturday morning to closing several ambitious deals the same afternoon. Simon’s professionalism and intensity are what make him one of Calgary’s outstanding Realtors, but it’s his people skills and his sincerity that make him one of the most trusted. He understands what a monumental event a real estate transaction is for every one of his clients, and he responds with patience, understanding, and genuine dedication.

This rare combination creates results. See for yourself.
