I spent most of my life growing up in Toronto before studying kinesiology at the University of Western Ontario in London. That’s where I met my wife and business partner Melissa. We got married and bought a townhouse in Toronto in 2003, and I began working in real estate while Melissa finished her nursing degree.
A few years later, I helped a few families move to Milton, and the small town really grew on me. Eventually, we took a leap of faith and tried it out, because we wanted a safe, quiet place to raise a family.
Looking back, it seemed like a wild and crazy idea to start a business in a town where we didn’t know a single person. Actually, I knew two friends from university… and they both had agents already!
We joined Royal LePage in 2005, and went $40,000 in debt to get our business up and running. Gradually, we climbed out of that hole and built our business up to where it is now, with a fantastic team that has ranked in the Top 100 agents in Canada in eight of the last ten years.
We have two children, Vivian and Claire, one dog named Lily, one cat named Dexter, and we enjoy mini-vacations in our backyard pool. Our family goal is to travel at least 3-4 times a year, and I love collecting vintage audio equipment, and listening to vinyl records. Back in the day, I was a pretty good DJ and I had my own college radio show.
My role on the team is to help clients, with a focus on sellers (although I do work with buyers every once in a while), and I look after most of the marketing and special projects for our team.
I believe in long-lasting, meaningful relationships with people, and mentoring our clients and our agents is one of the things I enjoy the most. I’m known as a creative, hardworking person who will always put respect and integrity first.
"From the bottom of our hearts, thank you & the entire Charlton Advantage team so very much for helping Grandma move from her home of 50+ years."
We chose your team because you helped us find & purchase our first house and we knew that your team was amazing, and that you would always keep our best interests in mind, and you would help us out anytime (no matter the time or day)! You were patient with us, listened to what we wanted and showed us those houses. You didn’t waste any time on houses that were not what we wanted. You also explained LOTS to us about terms and gave us confidence and knowledge to purchase a larger house. Everything that your team did went above and beyond to make our selling and buying experience phenomenal. You always have your clients’ best interests in mind, you put your heart into helping your clients and you make the road to buying a new house stress-free. You guys are awesome, we love you!

I discovered the Team on Milton Daily Homes. I found that your expertise on Milton properties was very helpful and I loved the daily updates. When we met, it was very informative – we learned a lot about the process of both selling and buying. The accessibility to the Team was an asset. If I needed a question answered or information you were always there. The constant feedback throughout the process was valuable. I was shocked on the day we moved in that you provided pizza and drinks and wings – that was awesome! Your service is stellar, what a lovely surprise! It’s nice to know that your services continue well after the sale of our home, and that we weren’t forgotten. You actually care! Your clients mean more to you than a simple transaction. Thank you for all your help throughout our selling process and for all your support. This was such a fabulous experience and Sean and I were so impressed with your professionalism. You provided helpful tips throughout and we loved the handy manual presented to us. We are very proud to be part of your Charlton Advantage Family. We loved working with you. Go Team Charlton – you ROCK!
Hands down best customer service I have EVER received from any company! Long before we even bought this home, (we ‘looked’ for like 3 years!) Chuck and his team were incredibly helpful, shared tons of important information and would randomly drop off little surprise gifts…..like a book I mentioned on a FB post I wanted to read. They were so involved and attentive through our whole buying process and because Chuck listened so intently we literally got the EXACT home we had set out for, down to the floor plan! It was listed the morning we were about to put an offer on another home but he was on the ball!!! And the service didn’t end there! After moving in we had a couple minor appliance and plumbing issues that THEY sent out people to fix!!! Honestly, I probably would still have a bucket under my sink if I had to arrange my own plumber to come in because there are so many other things to deal with during the moving process. And today the lovely Annette dropped us off a family pass to Halton Parks! I have been wanting to get my kids out hiking around the escarpment and now I will for sure! Thank you so sooo much to The Charlton Advantage Team, you all Rock!!
