Tom Everitt B.A.
(please note: I wanted to write my bio in 1st person narration but my wife insists that it be in 3rd person. I apologize if this irritates anyone but I am powerless to stop her).
Tom worked as an unlicensed assistant in 1998 for a Re/Max Realtor and became a licensed realtor in 1999. His commitment to real estate led him to Rookie of the Year honours at prestigious Dexter Associates Realty for 1999/2000 selling 27 homes. Tom has been a Medallion member of the Vancouver Real Estate Board (top 8-10%) for 2005 through to 2010. Tom is an excellent real estate negotiator and marketer of homes and his success each year and many client testimonials will attest to his skill in these areas.
Tom is also very active with the Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver Association, receiving the Cecil S Walker Award in 2010 for his 8 yrs of contributions to this excellent program. Tom is the MC for the annual Big Brothers of Greater Vancouver Awards Night which celebrates the milestones and achievements of Big and Little Brothers across Greater Vancouver.
One of Tom's other main interests is writing and public speaking and Tom has been a featured guest columnist for the Vancouver Sun's West Coast Homes section.
Tom and Kerrie are both authors of the book, 'True Real Estate Stories', an anthology of real estate stories collected from around the world and available at all major bookstores or Chapters.ca. They have appeared on CTV, CBC, City TV, Breakfast Television and Realty Television. They have also been featured in '24' Magazine, Metro Magazine, The Vancouver Sun, The Vancouver Province and Old House Journal who did a feature on their book for their 100 year anniversary edition.
Kerrie Everitt B.A. L.L.B.
In January, 2005, the lure of the Vancouver real estate market finally proved too strong for Kerrie Everitt and she decided to leave her position as a corporate lawyer with the largest law firm in Canada, McCarthy Tetrault LLP (in order to completely take over our business-Tom). Once licensed, she immediately joined Dexter Associates Realty to help with her husband's busy residential real estate practise (and to boss him around a bit-Tom). In January 2008, she officially became a Managing Broker, licensed to run and manage a real estate brokerage.
Kerrie was recruited by McCarthy Tetrault, Canada's National Law Firm, in June 2001 after she graduated from law school at the University of British Columbia. Prior to entering law school, Kerrie obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree at UBC with a major in international relations.
During her three years of law school, Kerrie danced as a member of the National Basketball Association's Vancouver Grizzlies Extreme Dance Team, using the 15 years of dance training that she had received at various dance companies and schools in Canada and the U.S., namely the Alberta Ballet Company, the Boston Ballet School and the Banff School of Fine Arts (she is also, officially, the most organized human being on planet earth-Tom).
Kerrie is the President and Managing Broker of VancouverHomes.TV Realty as well as a licensed real estate agent.
