There’s nothing more important than A SOLID FOUNDATION.
Brian Lewis couldn’t agree more.
After 16 years of dedicated service in the Canadian Army, Brian Lewis found himself at a crossroads. Even though his 20-year commitment was four years away, it was time to decide whether or not to pursue more time in the Army or to begin planning the next phase of his career. He loved the military and had experienced some of his life’s most cherished memories in that role – from participating in the Changing of the Guard ceremony in front of Parliament in Ottawa to being stationed in Germany when the Berlin Wall fell in 1989.
You might think this made Brian’s decision easy, but on the other fork of that crossroad was his young, growing family. His youngest son was just three years old, and Brian desired a stable environment in which to raise his family, free from the rigors of a transient military career. Although it was a difficult decision, Brian ultimately decided that the ability to put down roots in Waterdown was best for him and his family. All these years later, it would be difficult to argue with his decision.
A Solid Foundation
It’s only fitting that Brian would desire a rock solid foundation for his family, because “rock solid” is a great way to describe Brian as well. He grew up in a military family and was instilled with the discipline that went along with that from a young age. As a teen, he loved Scouting, which gave him his first taste of leadership. He went off to university before joining the Army, and the rest is history. Which brings us back to that monumental decision.
For his final three years in the Army, Brian served as the Regular Force Adjutant for the 48th Highlanders, an Army Reserve unit. Knowing his retirement was on the horizon allowed him to prepare for his next professional endeavour, and in 1999, he made the transition to real estate sales using the same traits that had made him so successful in the Army: leadership, discipline, drive, a visible pride in everything he does, and the perseverance to overcome challenges and get the job done.
“I wanted my kids to have a place to call home, so we planted roots in Waterdown many years ago. I couldn’t be happier with that decision, and to have the opportunity to help others do the same motivates me to give my all each and every day.”
More Than Meets the Eye
Don’t get the wrong idea here. Although Brian dedicated 20 years of his life to the Army and many of those traits remain with him, he’s far from the stereotypical “Army” personality. His warm, friendly approach has been putting people at ease and allowing them to enjoy every phase of their real estate transactions. With Brian on your side, you can trust your best interests are his first priority and that he’ll do everything in his power to help achieve your individual real estate goals.
“It’s extremely fulfilling to be able to help people with something as important as their homes,” Brian says. “Listening to people’s needs and goals and helping them move on to the next phase of their lives keeps me inspired on a daily basis.”
