Meet Ed & Tara
Ed Aiken graduated from Wilfrid Laurier University with an Honours Business Degree(BBA) specializing in Marketing and a minor in Psychology.
Ed gained invaluable experience with investments when he finished the Canadian Securities Course and worked as an investment advisor/stock broker with Edward Jones. Real Estate is probably one of the most important investments you will make in your life, so it helps to have the valuable insight into different investment options available to you.
He started his Real Estate Career in 1996 in Ontario where he specialized in investment properties and residential sales around the university area in Waterloo. He moved to Canmore Alberta in 2001 where he also sold Real Estate, specializing in Residential Sales and some commercial businesses. Ed is passionate about Real Estate and loves finding the perfect home for his clients or helping his clients sell their homes quickly and painlessly.
Ed met his wife in Canmore, Alberta who was born and raised on the Sunshine Coast. After many years of "coming home" to the Coast, Ed and his wife decided to move back to the Coast and start their Family (2 energetic boys). Before coming home to start their family they spent some time traveling the world to see New Zealand, Australia, Thailand, Hong Kong, Cambodia, Laos, and Singapore. Ed loves sharing his experiences with others, feel free to ask him about them or to see some pictures.
He feels it is important to give back to the community he lives in and has always been an active member of the community. He enjoys contributing and volunteering to groups such as the Roberts Creek child care society, 1st Gibsons Scouts and Cedar Grove elementary school.
In his spare time Ed loves the outdoors participating in Skiing, Biking, Hiking, Fishing and Camping. Ask him about some of the best spots to go on the coast and he will be happy to point you in the right direction.
Tara is an accomplished realtor with Re/Max, winning the Medallion Club recognition with the Vancouver Real Estate Board multiple times (top 10% of all realtors). She is a long time resident of the Sunshine Coast for 26 years and has a strong background in business and construction management.
She uses her knowledge and skills to help you through the home buying and selling process. She has a reliable customer service driven attitude that you will see in the first meeting. Her top priority is to make sure you are happy with the decision you are making - buying and selling a property can be intimidating, so Tara works closely with you through the entire process to make the transition as smooth as possible.
A career in Real Estate is a natural fit with all of her accumulated skills and experiences. Let her go to work for you; you won't be disappointed. Her down-to-earth, no pressure attitude allows you to make a decision that is right for you.
When Tara isn't working, you will find her off on adventures; this girl loves to travel and explore - hiking to the top of a mountain, skiing the fresh powder or a quick trip to the city to enjoy some good food and a show. Tara loves her Sunshine Coast lifestyle and wouldn't have it any other way.
