About Ira

I am a life-long Victoria resident with a passion for real estate. My background is in technology and I founded and sold several successful internet companies before venturing into real estate. I have been fortunate enough to always combine my passions with my career, and being a REALTOR® is no different.

Shortly after graduating from high-school in 2000, I turned my hobby, video games, into a business and founded AddictingGames.com. AddictingGames.com grew into one of the largest gaming portals in the world and had over 5 million daily active users at its peak.

I sold AddictingGames in 2005 and I founded another gaming website, OneMoreLevel.com. OneMoreLevel.com soon developed a loyal following of gamers and still runs to this day.

In 2014 I general contracted the construction of my own home in Saanich and this process helped kickstart a career in Real Estate. I own rental properties and been an active real estate investor for over 10 years.

I specialize in Residential Real Estate including condos, new construction, luxury homes and income generation properties such as AirBnb (Short Term Vacation Rentals). My expertise in online marketing and capitalizing on technology trends brings value to all my clients. I studied at the UBC Sauder School of Business and I am a licensed REALTOR® at Pemberton Holmes Ltd, the largest independently owned brokerage on the island and one of the largest in North America.

When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my beautiful wife and daughters. I can also be found exploring Mount Doug with my dog Shenzi.
