DARA FAHY’S BIOGRAPHY

I grew up on the North Shore, attending West Vancouver Montessori School; St. George’s School in Vancouver; Collingwood School in West Vancouver; Capilano College in North Vancouver; and the UBC Sauder School of Business in Vancouver.

As a real estate investor in Vancouver, Richmond, Burnaby and North Vancouver for a number of years, I have a strong understanding of the market from the perspective of both home ownership and property investment.

I live with my wife Sarah, at our home on Vancouver's North Shore, where Bailey, our beagle, will welcome you . . . as long as you bring her a nice dog biscuit!

In my (limited) spare time you may well find me on a local golf course, although always with my iPhone near at hand.

"Dara is one of the most loyal and supportive people I have ever met. He not only has been generous to us with our charity work, almost every year since our entrance into the non-profit market, but he has volunteered with his time, donations and support in any way we've needed it.

Dara has gone far above and beyond anything that I would have expected from someone who was interested in being involved with us. He gives back to his community, performs his job with integrity and always goes the extra mile to make a client happy; and in our case, be a huge and loyal supporter of our charity work.

Professionalism is what Dara is all about and I am happy to call him a friend."
