Telf grew up on a hobby farm in the Southlands Blenheim Flats area of Vancouver’s West-Side. His family is extensively involved in the international equestrian community, and Telf grew up jumping horses and travelling around the horse show circuit.
Telf’s educational background is in computers. As a self-employed computer tech and business owner for over 15 years, Telf owned and operated Canadian Computer Consulting and also worked as Executive Director of a not-for-profit internet recruiting company. His technical and business skills have proven very useful in the new “high-tech” world of real estate sales, and in 2006 Telf sold his computer company to work exclusively as a Realtor.
As a Realtor, Telf has been consistently successful over the years. While he specializes in selling Vancouver west-side houses and apartments, he is also quite knowedgable about investment real estate and has himself owned investment properties in both BC and Alberta. He is a Commercial Candidate member of the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver, and has excelled in the courses offered by the CertifiedCommercial Investment Member (CCIM) Institute.
Telf also sells hobby farms and equestrian centres throughout Greater Vancouver and the Fraser Valley. You can see his equestrian-themed website here: www.EquineAcres.ca
Telf’s other interests include sailing, SCUBA diving (he is a certified PADI Instructor), flying airplanes and float planes, and amateur radio (his callsign is VE7TLF).
