I come from a research background and years of education, and degrees from schools in three different countries: Master of Science from Russia, PhD from the USA, and MBA from Canada. My research career taught me to pay close attention to details, and to be as organized as possible to achieve desired results. I speak two languages: Russian as my native language, and English as my second language. In addition to being a scientist and an engineer, I established close ties with the local community in Edmonton while being an organizer and a volunteer at one the largest cultural events, Edmonton Heritage Festival. My goal is to add value, and to help people whenever they may need it. That is why I started exploring a real estate career opportunity a few years back. Real estate gives me a chance to be on a front line working with people directly, to pay attention to their needs, and to find out what help I can provide. A career in real estate is unthinkable without having impeccable ethics. Strong ethical character is an integral part of my practices. My work as a REALTOR® is as transparent to my clients as it is to myself. I work from my heart in my desire to help and to educate my clients with all my knowledge of residential real estate.
