About Us: Who We Are

For more than 60 years, our firm has been a proud member of our west-side Vancouver neighbourhood. Our approach is decidedly ‘not downtown’. We strive to provide outstanding personalized service and clear, professional advice, that leads to long-standing client relationships. By continually adding to our network of local business contacts, through introductions and recommendations, we are able to strengthen the fabric of our business community.
