Interview with Lindsie Tomlinson | Realtor with RE/MAX Select Realty

Interview with Lindsie Tomlinson | Realtor with RE/MAX Select Realty

Meet Lindsie:

I'm passionate about a few things:

But I'm even more passionate about helping my clients find the home that is right for them.

I specialize in helping families who have outgrown their current home, usually with the arrival of a wee one. Who knew someone so small could take up so much space? With the arrival of a baby, you start to think about things that you hadn't before. I love guiding clients through the process of finding the neighbourhood that they want to raise their children in.

I also love helping first time home buyers through the excitement and nervousness of buying their first property. It doesn't have to be scary!


Before we had kids, my husband and I lived in a condo in Kits, which we adored. After our first son was born, our one bedroom and den condo suddenly became too small (sound familiar?!) so we bought a house near Commercial Drive in East Vancouver.

If you live in the area and have kids, you've probably seen me around the playground, the ice rink or Community Centre at Trout Lake. If you live in the area and don't have kids, you've probably seen me shopping at Donald's Market, running around Trout Lake, sipping a coffee at The Prado cafe or enjoying a chocolate chip zucchini muffin at JJ Bean.


I work in all areas of Vancouver (including outside of Vancouver proper like North Van, Burnaby and Port Moody). I specialize in East Van because it's my 'hood and I know the schools, parks, restaurants, community centres and ammenities like the back of my hand.


A portion of every one of my sales go to the Children's Miracle Network as well as Backpack Buddies.

The children's hospitals supported by the Children's Miracle Network provide comfort, treatment and hope to millions of sick kids each year. In Vancouver, our donations go directly to the BC Children’s Hospital and last year, our RE/MAX office raised more than $24,105.

Backpack Buddies is a unique program that addresses a very real need in Vancouver that most of us don't think about. There are many kids that attend inner city schools that rely on lunch programs throughout the school week. When the weekend rolls around, many of these kids will remain hungry until they return to school on Monday. Backpack Buddies provides a backpack filled with food for these kids to take home, because hunger doesn't take the weekend off.

In 2002, I was a part of Joints in Motion, raising over $4,000 for the Arthritis Society of Canada and running my first marathon in Honolulu. In 2003 & 2005, I joined Team in Training, raising over $10,000 for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society of Canada.

I also volunteer every year with the Vancouver Heritage Foundation and the Vancouver International Wine Festival (formerly the Playhouse International Wine Festival). I love heritage houses and wine!

Interview with Robinson Smith - The Smith Manoeuvre

Interview with Robinson Smith - The Smith Manoeuvre

Meet Robinson:

Robinson graduated from the University of Victoria with a double major in Economics and Chinese Studies in 1995. During his time at UVic, he also studied Mandarin in Beijing and Shanghai and upon graduation worked in various sectors in China including international trade and investment while serving as acting Commercial Counselor at the Canadian Embassy in Beijing.

After obtaining an International Business MBA from Simon Fraser University in 2003, Robinson returned again to China to become vice president of The Balloch Group, a boutique international investment bank based in Beijing and worked on various projects as diverse as seaports, steel cable manufacture, lumber joint ventures and hydrogen fuel-cell investment. He has dined and mingled with the likes of Henry Kissinger, Prime Minister Jean Chretien and the Premier of China, yet somehow still manages to maintain an air of superiority. In 2006, Robinson returned to Victoria to work with his father, Fraser, the financial strategist who pioneered The Smith Manoeuvre, where Robinson helped over 500 families implement the strategy one at a time. In 2018, Robinson sold his investment advisory practice in order to write Master Your Mortgage for Financial Freedom, the follow-up to his father’s original book, and reach even more Canadians.

Robinson now dedicates his time to writing, speaking and training both homeowners and financial professionals in The Smith Manoeuvre strategy in order to continue with his father’s original mission to give every Canadian homeowner the opportunity to say “Yes” to the question, “Do you want to make your mortgage tax-deductible?” He lives in Victoria, BC, with his wife, Heidi, and their dog, Harley.

Interview with Stephanie Ostash - Kelowna Realtor - Royal LePage Kelowna

Interview with Stephanie Ostash - Kelowna Realtor - Royal LePage Kelowna

Meet Stephanie:

Originally a small town ‘tom boy’ from the Kootenay’s, Steph’s Real Estate knowledge started very early on as her Grandfather was a builder/ developer and her parents were always buying, renovating, renting, selling and showing her that property is not only a place to live but when done right, a true financial asset with the means to take her wherever she wanted to go.

Steph's true passion for Real Estate was ignited at the age of 19 when she started selling custom homes for the largest builder in Calgary. Young, ambitious, and full of fire, this was the same year she started investing in a real estate portfolio of her own, which has continued to grow and now contains a number of different property types and in different locations.

In 2007 when the Okanagan outdoors called her back to BC, she enjoyed the new challenge of building her business, as a mortgage broker, in a time of economic crisis. Hard work doesn’t scare this girl and she certainly knows how to get the job done.

After being headhunted by the largest Media Company in the Okanagan, she quickly became their top Marketing Consultant specializing in business growth and customer relationships. After five amazing years and working closely with some of the top Real Estate agents, brokerages and developers, to help develop and grow their marketing reach, she could no longer delay the inevitable… Steph just couldn’t give up her love affair with Real Estate and eventually made her way back.

Eric Zamora | Rennie & Associates Realty

Meet Eric: Four-time Rennie Leader Award Winner and three-time Medallion Club Award recipient Eric Zamora became a Realtor in 2011 and a Rennie Advisor in 2016. Along with nearly a decade’s worth of experience in the fast-paced Metro Vancouver real estate market, Eric’s winning combination of expertise, relatability, and dedication benefits both buyers and sellers alike. Eric emphasizes providing timely communication and the highest level of service in order to ensure his clients achieve their real estate goals. Using the latest virtual tools, translating the most significant trends in the market, or simply chatting over a coffee represent only a few of the ways Eric informs and connects with those he serves. Eric completed a Bachelor in Business Administration from BCIT and worked in the financial sector before building on this know-how with his eventual transition to real estate — which was inspired in part by the positive outcome of working with a Realtor when he and his wife purchased their first family home. Eric now lives in New Westminster in the house where he and his wife will raise their two daughters. “New West is a rapidly growing city, with tons of new restaurants popping up everywhere. It also has a lot of history, and I really like all of the unique character homes, many dating back to the early 1900s.” Growth is slated to continue across the Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley and Eric eagerly awaits what the future has in store: “Over the next 10 years, the further expansion of rapid transit will be interesting to watch!” Eric also looks forward to engaging in project sales for progressive new developments. Some of the accomplishments and experiences of which Eric is most proud include: Awards and Achievements •rennie Leaders Award 2016 – 2019 (Top Tier Producer at rennie) •Medallion Club Member 2017 – 2019 (Top 10% of All Greater Vancouver Realtors) •rennie Advisory Panel Member 2017 and 2020 Project Sales •Aviara by Ledingham McAllister | Burnaby, BC •Dominion by Ledingham McAllister | New Westminster, BC •King George Hub, Tower 1 by PCI Developments | Surrey, BC •King George Hub, Tower 2 by PCI Developments | Surrey, BC •618 Carnarvon by Skyllen Pacific | New Westminster, BC Whether it’s in Vancouver West or East, Burnaby, Coquitlam, North Vancouver, New Westminster, Richmond, or Surrey, Eric’s goal is providing realistic counsel and steady guidance to clients navigating one of the biggest milestones of their lives. This drive to support others in their quests simply comes naturally to him. “That’s always been something I’ve had in me — I just genuinely want to help.” Eric Zamora 778.389.4556 (tel:778.389.4556) ‮moc.einner@aromaze‭ ( Instagram: ( LinkedIn: ( Facebook: ( Subscribe & Review in iTunes   Are you subscribed to my podcast?

[5:43] Amidst the COVID-19 outbreak, what would you advise people who are in the market, buyer or seller, should be looking at right now? Eric has no clue on what will happen to the market due to the pandemic. He always highly suggests getting the best realtor possible in the area of interest and doing your research first hand. [8:39] What is the best property you have ever sold to a client? There are too many to mention, but the more challenging the deal, the more memorable it was for him. [9:43] What do you think "House Rich" means to you? Two things. 1.) It is when people get a mortgage that is not out of their league financially. 2.) People who think their equity is significant and then buy expensive things, then the market drops. Never overextend. Live within your means. [12:37] How can people reach out to you?
