About TeamW - Susie Mattner & Karen Hayes
TeamW works with you so that you can make well informed decisions in regards to your real estate decisions with as little stress as possible.
TeamW was founded by Trish Widdershoven who became licensed in 1989 when she found her true calling. In 2003 she was joined by her husband Rudi who had previous been with the RCMP and the City of Parksville. Trish and Rudi worked tirelessly for their clients best interest and have recently decided to move on to the next stage of their lives – retirement. Before making the decision they searched long & hard to find REALTORS® that they felt would be a “good fit” with their clients, and searched for someone who treated people by the “golden rule” always. TeamW was on the lookout for people who are careful, caring and honest (and community minded). TeamW’s primary goal has always been to put you, our clients first, so they wanted to make sure they got it right.
Susie Mattner has been on the Island for 3+ years & always wanted to relocate here as she vacationed here for years with family. She came from the South Surrey/Whiterock area of Vancouver. Susie’s background is in sales marketing & training for Wella Canada. She was an award-winning sales & service rep & also worked as a legal secretary. She brings all those skills to her real estate career.
Susie lives on a lovely 2 1/2 acre parcel right in Qualicum Beach with her mother (who she helps to care for) and her West Highland White Terrier and some visiting semi-resident deer. Susie also has a 2 bedroom “Air B n B” as well. How does the saying go? "If you want something to get done “ask a busy person”. That's our Susie! Susie loves decorating & has bought & sold a number of homes, done renovations and also owned a commercial piece of real estate with her brother in Vancouver. She is passionate about serving her clients by being empathetic and caring. Susie is excited about the opportunity to help you and being part of the new "TeamW"
Karen Hayes has called Qualicum Beach home for over 25 years, after immigrating to Canada 28 years ago from England with her husband Mike. TeamW clients will be able to take advantage of her 20 plus years in banking and her favourite part of that work, which was the planning process with customers. That is a huge part of Real Estate. She is also passionate about design and has a staging designation. Karen & her family decided it's "her turn to follow her dream of becoming a REALTOR" after raising a family & supporting their dreams.
Karen & Mike live on an acreage just north of Qualicum Beach with their dog, more semi-resident deer and a lovely swimming pool. Mike has his own business Hayes Heating. They have owned other businesses plus they have bought, sold and renovated homes as well. Karen & Mike have 2 adult sons. Liam who has just written the bar exam to become a lawyer and their other son Callum has his own excavating company. Karen is very proud of both her boys!
Karen and Susie are both excited to become the new TeamW! We will continue to work behind the scene as consultants to both the "girls" as they transition into the primary realtors of TeamW.
