Langley Times Readers Choice

Thanks everyone for voting for me in the Langley Times Readers Choice Awards. We still don’t know who actually won, but I’m told I was one of the top three (they like us all to pay for advertising, so don’t tell us! Haha!). I was glad to see the other two finalists were from my brokerage too, there really is a wonderful culture of support at Royal LePage Wolstencroft.

Honestly, these kinds of awards provide me the opportunity to voice my gratitude again. I teared up a couple of days ago in the kitchen of a family who sent me a referral in my earliest days in the business. They’re now selling and buying themselves, and it was great to have the opportunity to sit across the table from them and share how much it meant that they trusted me even then. Those of you that are also self employed will know just how precious that is, it really does mean the world. So, thank you all, again. I genuinely can’t express my gratitude enough.

THANKS! – Coldest Night of The Year

Thanks to all of you that sponsored the David Smith Homes team in the Coldest Night of The Year walk this year, in just two days we managed to raise $1,150 to help the Cloverdale Community Kitchen. In their own words it was:

A record snowfall.

A record amount of fun.

A record number of sponsors.

A record number of volunteers.

A record number of walkers.

A record amount of money raised. $66,000+

That’s an incredible result for the Kitchen and for our community. Thanks for participating with them and with me!

If you’ve got any questions about the Cloverdale Community Kitchen or if you’d like to learn how to volunteer, reach out and I will happily share more!

Thanks Again!

Introducing Anita!

The perfect person at the perfect time! Welcome, Anita Lebold to the David Smith Homes team! (see attached headshot). Anita was someone I first met serving on the board of at the Canada Institute of Linguistics, where she was Director of Strategic Enrolment Management, a role she held for four years and I know greatly impacted the growth of the school during that season. Anita has a Master of Arts in Business Leadership from Trinity Western University, where she also worked prior to her stint at CanIL.

Anita and Randy are members of Wycliffe Bible Translators, an organization I have deep respect for. They are the proud parents of three boys, Cameron, Hudson, and Jadon. I’ve taken note that she likes dark roast drip coffee, ethnic food, and jazz – now I know how to thank her, although if I’m buying tickets to a jazz festival, I’ll generously let Randy take her! I like my music to make sense, but then I’m not quite as bright as Anita and Randy.

To welcome Anita yourself, feel free to send her an email at
