About The Bettina Reid Group

Almost 7 yrs ago my husband and I moved our family across the country from Brampton, Ontario. Today we are very proud to call Cloverdale our home. I get asked all the time would I ever move back to Ontario and I always reply “there is nothing like looking out your window each morning and seeing the beautiful mountains, where else in this country can you find mountains and ocean out your back door”. Our Province and our community in the Lower Mainland truly offer the best of all worlds, and that is why my husband, two teenage daughters and I now call this home. I am an active member of my community being involved in our daughter’s schools and sports pursuits, in fact when I am not working you will often find me either on a soccer pitch or walking my dog with my husband or enjoying a quiet family game night at home.

I have worked in the sales and service industry for over 20 years and ran a successful business for 8 of those years. I have always enjoyed working with people and building lasting relationships with the people I meet, this is why I decided to make Real Estate my career. Now I get to work every day helping my clients with one of the largest and most stressful purchases of their lives. It is my job to work with my clients from start to finish during their purchase or sale of their home. I take pride in the fact that I am there to assist my clients with all their Real Estate needs. Whether they are looking to buy or sell their home, or looking to help a family member of theirs with a Real Estate need, my clients know I am there for them. My job does not end when I hand over the keys to my clients; in fact I believe that is where it truly begins. Through my varied contacts I can help my clients find the right person to renovate their home, or where they can go in their community for the new furniture they are looking for , or to even find the restaurant close by to hold a family celebration.

In 2010 in order for me to better serve my clients I expanded my business and I hired Kara Berman  to join me in The Bettina Reid Group. Our team has one goal and that is building our client relationships for life. With two dedicated professionals working together with our client’s needs at the fore front you can expect the best possible service, and that is our commitment to you our client.

My name is Kara and I try to conduct my life and business in accordance with one simple rule - treat other as I would want to be treated - a cliché maybe, but it is a mantra that pushes me to do that little extra for my family, friends and clients.

I am a small town girl who believes in honesty, integrity and empathy. I grew up in the Clayton Hills area of Cloverdale before the big development boom in the region. I spent most of my days playing sports and riding horses, and as a result, I have a deep connection to the Fraser Valley. I passed the first three years of High school at Lord Tweedsmuir Secondary, only to transfer and become part of the first graduating class from Clayton Heights Senior Secondary in 2001.

I now continue to play sports and ride horses as often as possible in my free-time; but probably most importantly, I take every opportunity to spend quality time with my family.

I have had many wonderful opportunities in my life, at age 17 I participated in an exchange program that allowed me to spend three months in Madrid, Spain and I was also able to go back to Europe in 2008 for a five week tour with my Mother, Brother and Sister; during which I visited many countries up close and personal. Recently this past fall I was afforded the opportunity to visit a family member who is living and teaching in AbuDhabi, a trip I will never forget! From my travels I acquired a new perspective on the world, but above all else, I learned to appreciate the unique qualities of life in British Columbia and in Canada as a whole.

I am blessed with a large extended family boasting a whopping 14 aunts and uncles and countless cousins all located in the BC area. In October of 2009 I had the pleasure of adding to my extended and immediate family when I married my Husband Ian. If someone asked me what the most important aspect of life is, I would not hesitate in saying my family.

I am thankful for the wonderful people in my life and look forward to making new memories and relationships. Life is too short to let the little things get you down, or to sit on your hands and be inactive!
