Our team is tapped into the loft market. We study it day in and day out. We know the lofts on the market, we’ve sold in every loft building in Vancouver, and we are well aware of the necessary precautions when buying and selling lofts and live/work spaces. Lofts are a unique product and you want to ensure you have a loft expert representing you.
This may be breaking traditional bio rules, but Shawn Lee is confident enough to admit he didn't consider a Real Estate career until the boom of 2002. Blame that on the fact his dad sold for Block Bros in the 70's; or that he was (and still is) a bit of a tree hugger. But when you look at the success of Blu Living and Vancity Lofts today,it's clear that this independent, honest, and (sometimes) rambunctious guy knows an opportunity when he sees one. Shawn prides himself in living a well rounded life, and the experiences gained as an SFU Economics Major /Clansman; Skeet and Ikes health food rep, and a Radical video game designer have made him a dynamic realtor and person. Real Estate gigs include fruitful terms with MAC marketing, Angel/Hasman and Century 21, but it wasn't until a fortuitous connection was made with Blu's co-founder Katie Burkard that Shawn truly found his niche. Within this partnership, Shawn's passion and knowledge for Vancouver's design driven properties has flourished and one of the most accomplished Real Estate teams in the biz has been assembled. But all work and no play makes for a dull boy, so Shawn leaves room in the calendar for world travel; adventurous dining and plenty of powder days. Only his wife Erin and super pooch Lenny garner the same kind of attention as the 02 boom. DAN
It was Dan Griffin's relentless search for balance that lead him to Vancouver Real Estate, and after 3 years with Vancouver's Medallion Stonehouse Team, he has finally found a permanent, (high ceiling, open concept) home. Yes, Dan is Vancity Lofts' new Sales and Marketing guru - and it's a position that was tailor made for the film grad and former New Yorker. Dan has an unwavering passion for design and unique living, and truly enjoys aligning like minded people with digs they love. This resourceful, sharp-dressed-man can help you piece together a successful home renovation just as well as he can piece together his chinos and wing-tips. His eye for design has help guide many happy buyers through dozens of heritage rebuilds. Dan is inspired by continual efforts to hurdle himself out of a perfectly operational plane (32 dives to date), rocks a mean warrior one, and is just as fearless in the kitchen. If that's not balance - what is?! GLENN
What's the perfect gig for an architecture aficionado who knows how to mix it up? For Glenn Feldstein the answer has always been Real Estate, and since 2007 he's been perfecting his Vancouver loft knowledge with Blu Living. In his previous life Glenn was slinging drinks as a bartender in Vancouver's lounge scene, and this mixologist sees no difference between creating a killer elixir for one of his regulars and providing knowledgeable, stylish service for his Real Estate clients. He just doesn't drink on the job (as much). What this fun loving, fitness freak and Medallion Club member does do is deliver solid negotiations that benefit every client every time. As Will Smith once said "If you're not making someone else's life better, then you're wasting your time." MELISSA
Melissa Kleerum has a confession to make. This driven, imaginative mother of one was actually on a quest to satisfy her epicurean desires when she stumbled upon BluLiving. Who would have thought that just across the street from her favourite gourmet grocery store (Whole Foods) lived a bounty of opportunity? Melissa now utilizes her background with Onni Group of Companies, and her passion for properties and design to spice up Blu’s Marketing division. She’s spontaneous, creative and a natural nurturer who’s eye-catching visuals are one step ahead of the competitions. Plus, in true foodie fashion…Melissa is always hungry for more. LENNY
THE OFFICE DOG
My name is Lenny, but some people call Mr. Lenners or by my real name Leonard. My hobbies include chasing squirrels, hording pinecones, and sticking my head out of the window of moving vehicles. Something most people don't know about me is that I am almost 80 years old in human years. When I was younger I always wanted to live on a ranch, but now I have grown to like the city.
