Kate grew up in the Cowichan Valley, just like the previous three generations of her family. Living in Victoria and Toronto to pursue her education she returned home to make her life in this beautiful community. Kate has enjoyed a few different careers (including working as a horse massage therapist!) and previous to being a Notary was an award winning Realtor at Re/Max of Duncan for six years. Becoming a Notary Public was the perfect way to put her previous experience and love of helping people to use. When she’s not in the office Kate can be found volunteering on the boards of local non-profits, hiking or on the back of a horse. She is passionate about the well-being of her community and is committed member of the Rotary Club of Duncan. Kate loves to travel and is always happy to chat about your latest adventure. Kate thrives on helping clients attain peace of mind, whether they are buying or selling a house or planning for their future.Get Started!
Kate is proud to have the most fantastic team in the office. You can look forward to meeting Alana and Sarah. They will be assisting you with booking appointments, transaction details and communication. A combined 30+ years of conveyancing experience ensures that your real estate transactions go smoothly!
When visiting the office you can expect to be greeted by the resident office dog, Maisey. Maisey is a very friendly medium sized dog who loves kids. If your service dog is going to attend your appointment with you or if you are concerned about meeting a new dog in the office please let us know before hand and we will make appropriate arrangements.
Our office is accessible and welcoming to everyone. If your kids will be with you they can expect to find a fun basket of toys to keep them busy. However, please be aware that some topics discussed during our estate planning interview may not be suitable for small ears and do require some concentration. You may want to consider arranging a sitter.
Having a Will is the basis for a good estate plan. Save time, money and grief by planning ahead. If you haven’t got a Will or your Will is old, come in and see me; you’ll be surprised at how easy it is to get one of life’s most important documents done. Don’t know who to appoint as an Executor? Ask me about professional executor services.
Decisions about our health care can be some of the toughest we need to make. Representation Agreements and Advance Directives help to ensure your wishes about your health are followed when you’re not able to express them yourself. Not only do these documents offer you peace of mind but they help your loved ones to make decisions on your behalf.
Making a Power of Attorney means your legal and financial affairs can be taken care of when you’re not able to do it yourself. Planning an extended international trip? Anticipating medical issues that may prevent you from handling your own affairs? A Power of Attorney can be tailor-made to meet your current and future needs.
Extensive experience in the real estate world means that I can ensure your Refinance, Purchase or Sale goes smoothly and every detail is attended to. I can also help you with Ownership changes, Family Transfers and Easements.
