rennie team tuesday - Gwen Chan

Meet Gwen, a new member of our growing advisor team. Learn 11 fun things about Gwen including what led her to a career in real estate, her go-to outdoor space, and a stand-out travel memory.

Inspiration to join rennie
The people at rennie and its' reputation within the industry. I love the friendly environment and the support given to everyone.

What led to a career in real estate
I have worked in a variety of customer service industries and decided to take on the challenge in real estate. Real estate will continue to grow as an industry and it's rewarding to help my client buy or sell their home. 

One thing most people don't know

I like trying different methods of cake decorating, such as piping cream or using molding chocolate. I have a large collection of bakeware and decorating supplies, cake pans in various sizes, different piping tools, and icing colours. I never seem to have enough. 

Something that sparks joy
Catching up with friends and family. 

Favourite thing to splurge on
Accessories, dogs, and clothes for my dog, Charlie. 

Best outdoor space in the city
Growing up in Burnaby, I loved Byrne Creek Ravine Loop trail. Most of the trail is under the shade so I can take my senior dog for a walk without him being overheating from the sun. 

A stand out travel memory
During my trip to Tokyo in 2017, a typhoon hit, and our trip was filled with rainy days and walking around with soaked feet. Yet, we still enjoyed the adventure! A highlight of the trip was going to Fuji-Q Highland amusement park, located inside is one of the largest haunted houses with a hospital theme. It was definitely different than any other haunted houses I've been to.

A charity you feel passionate about
Petsmart charities because I love animals and I hope they can all find a loving home.   

A home project to tackle
I would love to open up the dining area to create an open kitchen layout. 

A favourite meal to cook at home
While I don't cook often, I love to bake. When it comes to birthdays or other celebrations, I bake cakes decorated with cream. A favourite cake so far has been a cake shaped like a flower basket with buttercream piping. 

A decompression method
On my most stressful days, I take a hot shower and enjoy a glass of wine to relax while watching TV.
