Telf Maynard grew up on a hobby farm in the Southlands Blenheim Flats area of Vancouver’s West-Side. His family is extensively involved in the international equestrian community, and Telf grew up jumping horses and travelling the international horse show circuit. He still lives in Kerrisdale with his wife Tasha, their two kids Justin and Callie, and a variety of horses, dogs, and cats.
Telf’s educational background is in computers. As a self-employed computer tech for over 15 years, Telf owned and operated Canadian Computer Consulting. He also worked as Executive Director of the not-for-profit internet recruiting company CareerOwl Institute, spent several years as General Manager of Southlands Riding Club, and still helps manage the family farm, Southlands Heritage Farm. His technical and business skills have proven very useful in the new “high-tech” world of real estate sales, and in 2006 Telf sold his computer company and now works exclusively as a Realtor.
As a Realtor, Telf has been consistently successful over the years. While he specializes in selling Vancouver west-side houses and apartments, he is also quite knowledgeable about investment real estate and has himself owned investment properties in both BC and Alberta. He is an active member of the Real Estate Intelligence Network (REIN), and an alumni of the Authentic Canadian Real Estate System (ACRE) and Certified Commercial Investment Member (CCIM) Institute courses. Telf also sells hobby farms and equestrian centres throughout Greater Vancouver and the Fraser Valley.
Telf’s other interests include coastal cruising with his wife and kids on their sailboat, SCUBA diving (he is a certified PADI Instructor), flying airplanes and float planes, and amateur radio (his callsign is VE7TLF). He is also a member of Mensa International.
