MEET THE TEAM

Patti Goss

Patti Goss

My name is Patti Goss. I am a real estate agent in the city of New Westminster and together with my son, we are a top producing team at Re/Max Advantage. The thing I love about New Westminster is that it still has that small town feel even though it has experienced tremendous growth over the past few years. I not only call New West home but it’s where I work and where I’ve raised my son. In the last 26 years, I have helped countless families and individuals buy and sell property in and around New Westminster. I also serve on the New Westminster Chamber of Commerce as one of the Directors. This keeps me in tune with the development of our city and surrounding areas. I simply can’t get enough of the people, culture and great community here! I love helping others find a place they too can call home.

As a realtor, I see the importance of providing clients with great customer service, consistent communication and strong attention to detail. It has always been my focus to ensure that from start to finish the process of selling and buying is both a positive and rewarding experience for all parties involved. I value establishing good relationships, both with our clients but also with other realtors as this is essential to conducting good business. Everything about how we do business has a personal touch and that’s something that will never change.
A few things you might not know about me. Two of my biggest obsessions are shoes and purses. I also love cooking …when I have the time that is! I make one mean Lasagna…and oh a pretty good beef stroganoff too. Every second Friday of the month I spend my mornings volunteering with Meals on Wheels, where I help deliver warm meals to seniors within our community. I’m also a proud sponsor of the Youth Ambassador Society that provides mentorship aimed at better preparing young men and women for their future careers. On my rare days off I either spend my day in therapeutic cleaning sessions at my condo or head up to Missezula Lake to visit the family cabin. I think keeping healthy is important and yoga is one of the things I do to keep my general health in check! I’m always on the go whether it’s meeting with clients, hosting open houses or spending time with family and friends. Life’s too short not to enjoy it!

 

 

Wes Goss

I was born and raised in New Westminster, BC and attended St. Thomas More for 2 years before graduating from New Westminster Secondary School in 1999. After high school it was time to venture out of New West, living in Victoria attending the University of Victoria (UVIC) and then moving back to Vancouver to attend the University of British Columbia (UBC) and graduating with a Bachelor of Arts (major in Geography, minor in English) and Bachelor of Education (secondary school). After graduating from UBC I was immediately hired by the Vancouver School Board as a secondary school teacher where I taught for 5 years before taking a step into the real estate world. As the son of two realtors and always being around the business it was a natural progression for me to enter real estate. In 2010, I joined Sutton Group Realty, working on my own, which really helped me learn the real estate business even further. In 2011 I decided to join forces with my Mother, Patti Goss at RE/MAX Advantage Realty. Since then we have grown our business each year and are known as a top notch real estate team in New West and the surrounding areas.

What’s it like working with me as a realtor? I’m a hardworking and dedicated realtor who guides clients through each step during the home buying and selling process. I educate clients so they can make informed decisions that will benefit them in the present and in the future. I am always a couple steps ahead of my clients and preparing them for the upcoming task. Buying/selling a home should be a positive, enjoyable experience and I help make them feel comfortable and excited rather than stressed and nervous. I’m extremely knowledgeable of the local market and very familiar with the area and surrounding amenities. My genuine, caring, honest personality shows clients that they can trust me. Great at listening to clients’ needs and concerns, open to answering any questions and providing constant communication while always looking out for their best interests. I’m a “full service realtor” who has a team of helpful resources/professionals within the real estate and trades industries to assist in buying and selling homes.

I take pride in my career as a realtor and absolutely love working with a variety of people and personalities. The challenge of finding the perfect home for my clients is very enjoyable. Each and every day is unique so it keeps things fresh and fun! The most exciting day is handing over the keys to my clients for their new home. What a great feeling it is knowing I’ve played a role in helping them enter the next chapter of their lives!

A little bit about the other side of me. My girlfriend, Meghan, and I, along with our Shiba Inu dog Deniro (known as #denirotheshiba on Instagram), are back living in New Westminster after moving from downtown Vancouver in 2015. You can usually find us out walking around New West, especially along the boardwalk at the Quay or in Queens Park. It’s one of our favorite things to do, especially in the early mornings with a coffee in hand.  I absolutely love New West and am very involved with the New Westminster community and enjoy giving back, whether it is supporting the local businesses (especially the restaurants, pubs & coffee shops), networking with other residents and business owners, volunteering with organizations such as Meals on Wheels and donating to KidSport, Fraser River Middle School, the Arts Council and the Children’s Miracle Network. 

I’ve always been an avid sports player. From a young age sports have played a major role in my life, allowing me to develop critical life skills and build strong long lasting friendships. From ice hockey (still playing in a men’s league weekly) to golf, baseball, snowboarding, wakeboarding and hitting the gym regularly, I really enjoy keeping active. Boating on Missezula Lake at our family cabin is one of my favorite things to do although I don’t get to do it as much these days. A couple other things. I love to travel. My favorite drinks are coffee, caesars and beer.

Anyway, enough about me. It’s time to head to an open house now so please feel free to reach out to me via phone, text or email if you have any questions regarding real estate or New West. Need a home evaluation? Curious what your neighbor’s home sold for? Are you unsure if you qualify for the first time home buyer’s exemption? I’d be happy to help out.

Hi! I’m one of the first voices you’ll hear when you call our office. You can always find me sitting with my favourite mug at my widescreen computer posting our active listings, processing paperwork, ordering documents, editing marketing material, and making long to-do lists on colorful sticky notes. I guess you can say I do all the in between tasks that help our real estate transactions go smoothly.

Professionally I’ve been working in the real estate industry for over 3 years and during this time I’ve really developed a passion for business management. This has made me realize the importance of treating clients with utmost care and providing them with excellent service. These core values are only two of the many reasons why I enjoy working alongside Patti and Wes. As a team, we love what we do and take pride in our work.

At home, you can find me watching my favourite HGTV show “Fixer Upper” starring Chip and Joanna Gaines of Waco, Texas. Absolutely in love with what they do! I’m also a wife to a tall, skinny, half French Canadian and half Mexican man named Ryan. Together we rent a little basement in Maple Ridge and dream of the day when we own our first home. I’m also very passionate about helping others and have taken part in humanitarian trips to Mexico, Haiti, Dominican Republic and Nicaragua. Hopefully I’ll be able to take part in one this coming year!
