In life as in real estate, Akis believes there are three fundamental cornerstones for success: integrity, knowledge, and a passion to be the best.
These three fundamentals drive a dynamic real estate career spanning 25 years, more than two decades filled with accolades and honours. It's his open, straightforward philosophy of always putting his clients' best interests first that Akis credits with keeping his business expanding steadily -- even during the market's inevitable ups and downs.
Year after year, Akis is honoured with the prestigious Fraser Valley Real Estate Board Medallion Club and Royal LePage Diamond Award -- milestones that put him in the top 3% of Canadian realtors. He is also the recipient of the "2015 - Realtor of the Year " award!
Today, more than 90% of his annual business comes directly from personal referrals, and to his many repeat clients, he's become like a trusted member of the family -- someone who listens and then acts to make their dreams come true. In fact, it's common for moms and dads to connect their children with him when it's time for the next generation to take their first step into homeownership.
And in our fast paced, wired world, Akis is among the first to embrace new technologies, adapting them in creative ways that keep him connected to people, properties, and up-to-the-minute industry information. For him it's all part of finding innovative ways to enhance the buying and selling experience.
"I believe owning your home is the best investment anyone can make in their future. And whether it's a compact condo, an executive estate, or anything in between, I'm committed to helping you find the one that fits your lifestyle, budget, and life aspirations perfectly."
A devoted father of two, Akis is proud to have grown up in Surrey where he still lives, works, and plays --- creating the balanced family life he says is the true mark of success. He coaches his son's hockey team, is an enthusiastic supporter of his daughter's passion for soccer , and still makes time to ski, golf, and keep up his annual tradition of a summer tour on his Ducati motorcycle.
