20 years ago Irina and her family made a journey across the pacific, from the far east of Russia they arrived in Vancouver.
Coming from a small town, Irina immediately appreciated all that Vancouver had to offer: world-class universities, career opportunities and a stunning unique urban landscape — but it was Vancouver’s uniquely welcoming personality, and wonderful friendly people that made her certain this was the place she and her family would call their new home.
To this day, Irina feels lucky to have the opportunity to help others find homes in such an incredible city.
Prior to her career as a real estate agent, Irina graduated with a BA in Economics and worked for 10 years in the Banking and Finance sector. This experience is an invaluable asset in analyzing trends and identifying prime investment opportunities.
Irina works in partnership with Elena Shyshkina — Elena is not only an experienced realtor, but also has 5 years of experience as a Property Manager and Rental Agent. If you are looking to buy real estate as an investment, Irina and Elena are the perfect team to help you from A to Z. 80% of their business is built on referrals from satisfied clients. Providing excellent service to buyers and sellers in order to earn their trust, referrals and repeat business is central to their working philosophy.
When they aren’t helping clients, Irina and Elena enjoy hands-on involvement in their community. They are active supporters of sports, arts and cultural programs including Origami Rhythmic Gymnastics and Russian community concerts.
