Desmond grew up in Kamloops and spent years working on a ranch at Pritchard. After some time in Ontario getting married, starting a family and then earning his Accreditation in Recreation Leadership from Conestoga College, as well as completing the Ontario Management Development Program, he moved his growing family to the Shuswap, settling in historic Notch Hill.

Here he and his wife, Susan, raised their three children while he worked for 15 years as General Manager for his family’s business. Sensing that the time was right for a change, Desmond completed his Real Estate Trading Licensing through UBC’s Sauder School of Business and he now uses his extensive knowledge of the Thompson – Shuswap – Okanagan region to assist both buyers and sellers in achieving their Real Estate goals.
