Ann’s life and career spans the globe. She was born in South Africa, spent her formative years in England and finished with university in Vancouver. Her working career took her to both the far east and west.
Ann’s passion for Real Estate began in London, England, where she was a Property Consultant engaged in selling English properties in the Hong Kong marketplace. Realising the limitless potential in Asia she then moved to Asia and spent seven years there. Her first destination was Hong Kong, where she developed a Canadian division and a “Lifestyle Division” for a Hong Kong based Real Estate company. Here she marketed Canadian properties in the Hong Kong marketplace and sold French Chateaux in France. An opportunity to broaden her work experience in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia found Ann working in the entertainment industry in marketing and Public Relations.
Ann returned to Vancouver where she has put her international experience to good use. Her global perspective and far reaching influence create a unique skill set which sets her apart from the crowd.
A lover of the arts and travel, Ann is a VSO subscriber and has visited 34 countries – almost half way through her bucket list. She lives in West Vancouver with her supportive husband of twenty six years and two beautiful children at local universities. Update – one beautiful child is now living in London – the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree!
