Meet the Team

Meet Ped

Ped Naimi is one of Vantage Real Estate Group’s founding partners.  Known best for his expertise in marketing, Ped brings a wealth of knowledge to selling homes.  Ped graduated with his BBA in Finance from Simon Fraser University in 2003, and has been self-employed in real estate marketing and business development since that time.

Ped is a numbers guy and constantly has his finger on the pulse of the South Surrey Real Estate market.  Ped’s clients know that he loves what he does.  He always has a smile on his face at open houses and enjoys getting to know new people.  The limitless possibilities and the opportunity to work with different people every day really appeals to Ped.

“As a Realtor, I love being with clients as they buy or sell their home. It’s a time that’s filled with excitement as they start their new journey. Every time I help someone buy or sell a home, you can’t help but get wrapped up in each other’s lives and get to know each other’s families, hobbies, and even how they like their coffee.”

The odd occasion when Ped isn’t working he can be found on local golf courses, Steve Nash in Morgan Crossing, or with his wife and 10 year old son. If you see him, make sure to hi.
