Rick ‘Rictoria’ Hoogendoorn is an ace realtor in Victoria, BC http://greatervictoriapropertygroup.com. But much more than that, he and his gal Cheri Crause re-invented themselves as developers creating fine apartment buildings. Their extensive real estate portfolio is a testimonial to an exciting journey of success, overcoming fear and perseverance. Rick is also a speaker, an author, a raconteur and his eye-propping impersonations are funny and right-on! I highly recommend reading his “What Is Stopping You?” – another great story about overcoming obstacles to success.
