We place a premium on honesty and integrity. We envision ourselves as a lifestyle-driven group, committed to intelligently informing and connecting our local community. We understand the rapid change of the technological landscape and increasingly fragmented data in the real estate industry and know the imperative need for transparent communication with our clientele. It’s changed how we see our role. We provide qualitative and quantitative market knowledge, so our clients can make the most informed decisions. For over a decade I have built Real Time software and Real Time dashboards for my clients and have proudly taken it one step further sharing part of the program in a partnership with developers to design a ‘real-time trends’ dynamic market analytics program, shared by Realtors® across Canada.

"A recognized acumen in real estate business combined with a sharp and innovative approach to marketing on Vancouver Island; brand new to the industry, when the opportunity to join the team at dg & associates was offered, I didn't just jump at it, I vaulted. To be able to learn and grow with an established business is compelling in and of itself, but to be challenged to consider a new perspective on how the commerce of real estate can be elevated daily, well that's pretty powerful." ~ Odessa
