Dan Silburn - Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Camosun Westshore

Growing up in the Pickford area of Colwood, I attended elementary school at the fairly new David Cameron. I was heavily involved in team sports such as Hockey and Lacrosse mostly with the same group of guys as I progressed thru the ranks. I crossed paths with some great people thru organized sports and I am proud to say I am still very good friends with some of them. Moving onto Spencer and then eventually Belmont high school, I developed a passion for fixing vehicles. I enrolled at Camosun College and completed a course in Heavy Duty mechanics. Continuing this career into BCIT and eventually finishing my apprenticeship I decided I needed a change.

Real Estate?

My first taste of real estate came when I started to look into buying my first house, At this time I was educating myself in the world of real estate investing. I had talked to a couple agents before I chose to work with a REALTOR in the area of Parksville, Where I eventually purchased my first investment property. This property was located close to the beach and an ideal rental on VRBO. I credit my first realtor for the enthusiasm and the excitement he brought to the job. I knew that this was something I wanted to pursue as a profession and I enrolled in the course at UBC with an end goal to finish and pass my exam within a year. My time in the profession has been exactly what I hoped it was, I can honestly say I love coming to work and meeting new people thru the course of my day to day business.
