My name is William Li and I am a Vancouver Builder and Realtor who specializes in marketing, and designing & building single family homes in Vancouver. Unlike some other realtors who may have merely completed a real estate course, I have further been involved in many aspects of the residential building industry, with experience in architectural design, wood framing construction, home inspection and project management.
After achieving a Masters Degree in Management at Massey University 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 my focus from highrise to single family, and joined a high end residential custom home building company, Jalcon Homes, in 2007, as the Design & Build consultant. I developed my drafting and design skills using ArchiCAD and Revit during downtime at the weekly showroom; I worked very closely with clients for the entire process from sourcing the land and home design, to the whole construction process and handing over the key.
In 2009, I continued my adventurous journey and moved to Canada with my family. I started my first part time job as a Kitchen Designer at Home Depot, and simultaneously worked as a carpentry framer– this was a truly challenging and rewarding job for my career; withstanding so many unforgiving rainy days on the job sites was a tough experience that strengthened my mental and physical state. Some nights after working on the job site I went to BCIT to study in the Builidng Techonlogy Program, and from there I obtained not only a Certificate With Distinction, but also my confidence in getting the job done. In 2012, I incorporated my home inspection company, Jalh Homes Ltd. and became licensed Builder in Vancouver BC. Finally, in 2014, I became a licensed Realtor and started to help clients buying and selling homes. My high clientele satisfaction makes my job fulfilling and rewarding.
Outside of work, I love all music, travelling, photography and playing golf and basketball with my kids. I love my family and appreciate all the time and moments with them; the time spent with loved ones truly important to me.
