From the age of 12 Merrick always realized he would be in sales. When he was in the 7th grade there was a competition to sell chocolate bars and Merrick sold enough bars to get him to the school camping trip twice over. Needless to say, he won that competition and realized right then and there that he loved working with people. Merrick brings a wealth of sales experience into his real estate profession but it is his connection with his clients and friends that bring him the most joy. He has a habit of making friends out of clients by listening to their needs, thinking of their desires, and finding what they are looking for in the market place - no matter how competitive it can be. Merrick married his lovely wife, Sydney, in 2013 and together they have three children; Matteo, Elizabeth, and Milo. When not working, you can find Merrick with his family at the gym, enjoying Sunday football, or at the park with his children. Abbotsford has always been home to Merrick and he enjoys that fact that his children get to growing up in the same wonderful town that he did.
