Our Story

Once upon a time ...


Rhys and Kathleen started sharing an office at Bay Realty in 2009. They were a case of ships passing in the night as Rhys was busy with newborn twins and frequented the office in the wee hours of the morning. When they first met over the water cooler Kathleen introduced herself to him, not realizing this was her office partner of two years! Fast forward through many conversations about family, clients, and life, as well as a lot of laughs, through to the present day and they are very happy to be the team of rhysandkathleen at Bay Realty!

Clients say they love working with two experienced professionals with different backgrounds who bring their own unique perspectives to the table.  Kathleen and Rhys have represented clients in literally hundreds of transactions, selling and buying all of the different types of residential properties in the Lower Mainland. 

This success doesn't happen by accident; it's the end result of training, education, and life experience.

Meet Kathleen


Since 1982, I have been fortunate to call the Lower Mainland home. I first moved to Vancouver from the Interior of BC as a student attending university. I have lived with my husband and two sons in Richmond, South Delta, and now, South Surrey/White Rock. I love the mild weather we have on the Coast (even the rain!), the ocean and beaches, Whistler and the mountains, and the wide range of amenities available throughout the Lower Mainland.

I have been a full-time REALTOR® since 2008 and have considerable experience with the buying and selling of residential real estate. My personal life experiences, along with the opportunities I have had to work with a variety of people, have given me a deep understanding of the challenges people face when buying or selling a home and how to help my clients through them. What makes me happiest is to know that I have done the best job possible on behalf of my clients and that I have helped them move on to a new stage of life.

Meet Rhys


I am a second-generation realtor born and raised in South Surrey/White Rock. I love using my knowledge of the area, my interpersonal skills, and over 15 years of real estate experience to bring about the best results for my clients. From our first introduction to SOLD my goal is always to find the best next move for you and to negotiate hard to obtain it.

Before my real estate career, I worked in marketing, banking and small business development which prepared me well for the many challenges of the fast paced, ever evolving real estate industry. My Bachelor of Commerce degree and Real Estate Licensing Certification are additional assets I bring to the table.

I am proud that a large portion of my business is from referrals and repeat clients. My clients feel confident in my representation of them so that they can focus on the goal at hand... finding their next home!
