|I own my own home currently which we built in February
of 1988 . . . prior to that we had built, lived in, and consequently
‘sold’ 2 other houses/homes in town. I’ve dealt
in depth with Rental Properties, both as an owner and as a Manager
I currently own Ed’s Gym – a gym that I started up
from the ground up and is currently one of 3 workout centers in
In January of 1993, my wife and I purchased The Golden Arrow
Motel, a 14 unit motel, that we operate at arm’s length
(hired manager, cleaning staff, etc.). This has been quite the
experience - watching the building of the Kikiwak Inn and most
recently the Super 8 Motel - Competition is tough but we keep
our little place clean, neat and quiet.
I have a very strong interest in where the economics of our Community
are going – we’ve witnessed a lot of changes in The
Pas over the past few years, a few highs, a few lows, but overall
the future looks very bright, we have some of the best fishing,
hunting and camping areas in the world. So if you’re planning
a move to The Pas – all I can say is "Welcome"
and "when do we start looking for a home?"
