My name is William Li and I am a Vancouver Builder and Realtor who specializes in marketing, designing & building single family homes in Vancouver. Unlike other realtors who may have only completed a real estate course, I have been involved extensively in many aspects of residential building industry, with experience in architectural design, wood framing construction, home inspection and project management. The company name of JALH is from my daughter Jiayi and my son Alvin and family names.
Having achieved the Master Degree in Management at Massey University in New Zealand in 2004, I started my first job in the construction industry as a Project Manager subcontracted to Kalmar for the Winsun Heights– a high rise condo project. Upon the completion of the project, I shifted from highrise to single family, jointed one of the high end residential custom home building companies, Jalcon Homes, in 2007, as the Design & Build consultant. I developed my drafting and design skills using ArchiCAD and Revit during my unbusy weekly showroom time, I worked very closely with clients from sourcing the land, home design, interior design and the whole construction process to handing over the key to the client.
In 2009, I moved to Canada with my family, another adventure journey. I started my first part time job as a Kitchen Designer at Home Depot, at the same time, working as carpentry framer– a truly challenging and rewarding job for my career although withstanding so many rainy and musty days on the job sites. Some nights after job site I went to BCIT to study Builidng Techonlogy Program, and from there I obtained not only a Certificate With Distinction but my confidence in getting job done. 2012, I incorporated my home inspection company, Jalh Homes Ltd. and became licensed Builder in Vancouver BC. Remember the days in New Zealand that my friend suggested me to be a real estate agent and I just ignored. Finally in 2014 I became licensed Realtor started to help clients buying and selling house. I am happy because my clients are happy.
I love music, travel and try and enjoy many sports. I love my family and appreciate all the time and moments with them, it is truly important to me.
