Real Estate to me is a family business. I have had the privilege of working with my father and two sons in this business. It has taught me the value of treating people like family and adhering to a strict code of ethics at home and work. We as the as the Goertz Team strive to treat our customers like family, to have integrity beyond reproach, to provide the highest quality of service to our customers and to have a positive impact into the community where we live, serve and work.
As a lifelong resident of Abbotsford, my passion as a realtor is to help you realize your dream of finding the perfect home in this beautiful ‘City in the Country’ that we call home. From the sprawling farmlands of Sumas Prairie and Matsqui flats to the Fraser River and up to Sumas Mountain. Here in the Fraser Valley, we get spoiled by being in close proximity to the majestic mountains which includes the spectacular Mt. Baker, as well as within an hour’s drive to the Pacific Ocean. Abbotsford truly is a great place to live.
Let me introduce myself, my name is Don Goertz. I have lived in Abbotsford for over 60 years, been married to the love of my life Sonya for over 40 years, raised 3 kids who are all grown and married now. We have been blessed with 8 grand children aged 5 – 18 . . . it is true what they say, having grandkids makes having children worthwhile.
When I’m not working, you can find me learning about all the new gadgets and technology. Computers and gadgets have a way of holding my interest as well and I am continually trying to figure better ways of doing things. I love watching most sports but hold a special place in my heart for football, almost as much as when I was younger and able to play it. Hockey and baseball are pretty good too. That might sound like blasphemy for a Canadian to put football before hockey but hey, what can I say.
I consider myself to be a lifelong student. I believe it is important to a person’s development to be learning constantly and to be able to adapt to different situations. As a result of this belief and philosophy, this led me to participate in many training opportunities and eventually to become a certified trainer and coach under the umbrella of John Maxwell. The John Maxwell Team was founded in 2011 and I am a Founding Partner and certified JMT Coach and Trainer.
