rennie team tuesday - Ambrose Kan

Meet Ambrose Kan, a new member of our growing Advisor team.

What inspired you to join rennie?
I went to a Realtor event at 618 Carnarvon where I heard Bob Rennie speak. He was informative, progressive, and inspirational. The passion and confidence with which he spoke with opened my mind to new perspectives and in turn made me want to be a part of his vision for the future.

What got you into the real estate industry?
My family has been in real estate for a long time. At first I did not pursue it as a career opportunity but as time passed by and having gained other job experiences, I began to see the limitless potential of being a Realtor. Real estate offers an amazing learning curve and countless opportunities to meet people from all different walks of life.  

Who is your biggest industry idol and why?
In this diverse business there are so many ways to create success but if I had to name someone who influences the way I do real estate, it would be Simon Sinek. His lessons on how to be a great leader and how to create core business values has helped me find clarity in my own pursuit for success. 

What do you most look forward to about coming into the rennie office?
The rennie office is always warm, welcoming, and friendly. I love the architectural design and history of the Wing San building; I often describe it to friends and family as a small Google headquarters but for real estate. I believe the kitchen is always the heart of a home, so having a kitchen at the rennie office with freshly baked goods is the perfect finishing touch.

For you, what defines great client service?
Great client service begins with listening to your client before assessing their needs. It is helping manage their expectations and providing professional advice to help guide them to make a well informed decision.

What's one thing most people don't know about you?
As much as i love the convenience of technology, I really enjoy not having my phone on me all the times. Sometimes I reminisce about the past with envy.

What's the coolest design feature you have seen in a home?
It's a marvel how Japanese architecture has a way of balancing nature and human creativity. There was one house that had a stream flowing through it from the second floor to the first floor with greenery surrounding it. It created such a tranquil environment.

What’s the most memorable place you have travelled to?
While at Sudan Couloir on Blackcomb Mountain, my friend and I decided to try a double black diamond run to experience extreme skiing. When we made it to the top where the slope began, the view was stunning. We were surrounded by fresh powder, there was no one else around, it was very still. From where we stood, we could see all the other mountain peaks poking out from the clouds with the sun brightly lighting up the clear sky. It felt cinematic. We sat down to take in the peaceful moment before we descended the very steep terrain. That was the first and last time we were there but it left a lasting impression.

Thank you, Ambrose. Welcome to #teamrennie!
