Consulate General of Ireland
1095 West Pender Street #1300,
On Thursday, 3 August, join the Consulate General of Ireland for their August Business Breakfast – ‘Navigating the Property Market in BC’.
Buying property is one of the most important purchases you can make in your lifetime. With property house prices soaring in Vancouver, affordability is top of mind in this decision.
Join us and hear from three leading experts in the field: Tadhg Egan – Barrister & Solicitor at Tegan Law Corporation, and Realtor with Kleaman Commercial Group (Re/Max Crest Realty); Sarah Hopkins – Licensed Realtor with Keith Roy & Associates at REMAX Select Realty; and Kimberly Lejarzo Coutts – Licensed Mortgage Broker with Dominion Lending Centres Inc.
These experts will help you understand the property market and help you make the right decision in regards to savings, navigating the sales process, and accessing credit.
As this will be a hybrid event, we are delighted to be able to welcome guests to attend the Consulate General of Ireland in person. However, tickets will be at a limited capacity and will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.
At our business breakfast events we invite people to introduce themselves, whether you’re a newcomer to Vancouver, a job-seeker, or just new to the Irish community. This is also an opportunity for our Irish community organisations to provide an update on their upcoming activities or introduce their organisation to the gathered attendees.
