Denny FriesenSales Representative
I have called the Fraser Valley my home for my entire life. I feel truly blessed to have raised my family here, surrounded by this beautiful backdrop. I was born and raised in Abbotsford and grew up in the chicken farming industry, where I also started and ran my own chicken catching business out of high school.
In 2001 my wife and I moved away from Abbotsford and the farming life to the beautiful city of Chilliwack. We settled up on Promontory and set out on a new adventure where we owned and operated a bed and breakfast for thirteen years.
During the time we were running the bed and breakfast I decided that I wanted to use the leadership skills I had gained from being an entrepreneur and my interest for real estate to pursue my real estate license. I am so thankful that I took this step, as real estate is the perfect platform for me to use my love of helping people.
Working in the real estate industry is one of the most fulfilling things I have done. It has allowed me to showcase my open and honest personality and has given me a whole new level of satisfaction through my clients, there is nothing like handing the keys over to a first time buyer!
My wife, Sheila, and I love this community and everything it has to offer for work and play. We love the outdoors and enjoy fishing, camping, skiing, and ATV’ing. We both serve in many areas of our church and are also both involved in a local charity called the MEADOW ROSE SOCIETY.
I know that my love of people, passion for helping others, and my strong ethical values make me the right agent to help you find that next perfect home!
My husband, Denny, and I have called Chilliwack our home since 2001 and I have a deep affection for this city and all its beautiful surroundings. I consider myself blessed to be able to take in the view of the mountains everyday and to have nature right at my doorstep. We live here, we work here and we are committed to our community and the people we work with everyday.
For the past three years I have had the privilege of joining Denny on his real estate adventure as his assistant. This work nurtures my love of working with people, being creative and spending time alongside my husband. I take pride in the work I do whether I’m running errands, being a sounding board for ideas or just keeping life organized in this, at times, crazy real estate world.
Being a part of the real estate industry is a truly rewarding experience. My passion lies in helping others and this job gives me the perfect platform to do just that. I get to be a part of someone’s dreams coming true when they find their perfect home, and that is a feeling unlike anything else.
When I am not working I am involved with this great community in a variety of ways. I regularly serve at my church and I am an executive director of the MEADOW ROSE SOCIETY of Chilliwack. We are a registered charity that provides the necessities of life to children three and under. I run the office and take care of the bookkeeping and the personnel we have.
I once read a quote that said “Life’s too short too live the same day twice,” and I believe that applying these words to life and work provides us a great opportunity to be inspired to reach out to others, and to give our best at everything we do.
