Katie Burkard | Local Love Business Feature

    If you are in the market to buy or sell a unique Vancouver property, I highly recommend Katie Burkard over at Sotheby’s International Realty.

    Katie is a long-time dear friend of mine who inspires me day after day, not only on personal level but on a professional one too!  Her successes are too many to count. Katie’s entrepreneurial spirit is what truly stands out to me. At the young age of 24, Katie co-founded one of Vancouver’s largest specialty loft companies, Vancity Lofts and just 3 years later she co-launched BLU Living, a modern boutique brokerage.  I am proud of Katie for her success in the highly competitive world of real estate, but I love that she went for it when she saw a gap in the market and started not 1 but 2 successful companies. I see Katie constantly challenging herself in life and in business.  Just this past spring she committed to training and finishing her first ever triathlon up in Whistler and not long ago she decided it was time she left BLU to break out on her own and market her personal brand of real estate.  Of course, Katie is starting out right with her sleek and stylish new website,

    Over the years, Katie and I have worked together on a number of photography projects.  Like, shooting headshots for her and her team at BLU a couple years back to a more recent awesome lifestyle session with Katie at her gorgeous Vancouver condo near 8th and Main that overlooks our beautiful city.  When Katie asked that I join her on a “unique neighbourhood project”, I knew it was going to amazing. It gave us the opportunity to once again connect on a business level. Needless to say, we loved every minute of it…touring the city and capturing the authentic Vancouver experiences in each unique little hood was awesome.

    In the mix right now, we are working on a cool custom fine art project for Katie’s gorgeous home with images from past travels to Hawaii and Costa Rica.  Stay tuned for the final works!

    I could go on and on about how awesome Katie is but you should really just contact her to find out for yourself.
