About Yuri

I was born and raised in the Peace Country, and took my B.Admin Degree from GPRC, where I met my business partner Taj Johnson. I proudly returned home after pursuing my B.Mgmt from the University of Lethbridge, where I began my career under the mentorship of Darlene Repka-Smith (the best in the business). I am passionate about real estate, technology, marketing, architecture, international real estate, board sports, the mountains, travel, coffee and fitness.  I love helping people realize their dreams, particularly first-time home buyers.

In my career in Real Estate I have realized many dreams, and had a lot of fun along the way. Some highlights of my career have been representing the industry leading Harker Homes, founding GP3D Marketing Solutions Inc, being nominated from the GP Chamber of Commerce for both ‘Small Business of the Year’ (2016), and ‘New Business of the Year’ (2015), speaking at business conferences in both Grande Prairie and Red Deer, Making the REP Young Guns Top 100 Realtors in Canada under 35 (2017) and most importantly founding Grassroots Realty in 2017.
