Alexandra Dawes, CPA -
Real Estate Advisor
Alexandra is a trusted Real Estate Advisor with Engel & Volkers Vancouver Island.
Before moving into the industry, she founded and managed a virtual CFO accounting firm. The company grew rapidly resulting in her bringing on a team of seven dedicated employees to help make it a success. She is now using the extensive and diverse skill set gained running her own company in the accounting world to the real estate industry.
Alexandra's ambition and focus is to help other people realize their own dreams of becoming homeowners or real estate investors. Whether it's their first purchase or their tenth, she will spend the time it takes to help her clients make well thought out, smart, strategic real estate decisions that they are also comfortable with.
Alexandra combines her knowledge of real estate, gut instinct and accounting expertise to enable her to do more than help people buy and sell properties. She knows the ins and outs of cashflow generating strategies and long-term financial planning, and in today's very challenging real estate market, this knowledge is invaluable to a seller or a buyer.

Mary Lummerding, Chef -
What’s for dinner?
As a Personal Chef and Cooking Coach, I help home-based busy Entrepreneurs and Professionals to make healthful, easy meals to break the cycle of take out and delivery. With planning, practise and some lively music, cooking can be very easy and fun.
Cooking is a valuable skill. It gives you relaxing time away from your business. Cooking can help your brain to be healthy because you are organizing, sequencing, calculating, estimating, etc, etc!
Set your place at the table, turn on some music or a podcast, and enjoy the meal that you prepared for your Self.
I also encourage parents to cook with their children to increase their independence and confidence in taking care of them selves and contribute to taking care of the household.
Let’s work together so you achieve your goal to cook for yourself:
• for improving your health,
• for social reasons (invite family and friends),
• or to achieve a money saving goal.
Gardening suggestions can also be included!
Contact me or visit my website or social sites for more inspiration.

Joyce Ingram – World Financial Group
Understanding all aspects of money; debt, savings, investments, and retirement is the foundation to managing and generating wealth. Most haven’t had a basic financial education or know the importance of insurance and protecting your income.
Protecting yourself and your loved ones financially from unseen and unplanned events is vital. Not having to worry about unanticipated consequences allows you to live life without the stress of the ‘what-if’s’ of life.
As a parent, not only have I protected myself and my family, but I’ve also been able to help my kids secure their insurability and get them set up for future financial security in a way that I never knew was possible.
I’m on a mission now to help families navigate and build their financial roadmap.
I work with you and your objectives to provide strategies for; money for university, purchasing a home, weddings, travel, or retirement. Having a plan takes away the stress and ‘unknowns’ providing you ‘peace of mind’ with money.
I take a holistic, non-judgemental approach to help you navigate your financial future.
Whether it’s getting out of debt, tax strategies, insurance or understanding your financial independence number for retirement, we’ll work collaboratively to design a plan and vision for your goals in life so you can make smarter financial decisions.

A. Alex Cook
Independent Insurance Advisor
Group Health, Life Insurance &
Living Benefits Specialist
My background is in Sales and Marketing having held the position of Director of Sales and Marketing, VP Sales and CEO. I am a local, born and raised in Victoria, have a 24 yr old daughter and a home in Royal Oak. I am an active individual, sometimes to a fault, and enjoy most activities that include an element of adventure.
What I truly enjoy about the insurance business is the personal and business relationships I build with my clients and the peace of mind I get knowing that I provide solutions that can change lives for the better, at a time when people need it the most. That’s powerful, more often than not clients become longtime friends.
My approach when working with prospects and clients is to begin with a review of their current plans, assess changes in the business, if any, and offer solutions that are tailor made for the client, one that fits their budget.
