About me

Personal, honest and professional

I’ve lived in Abbotsford my whole life with the exception of attending school at UVIC to complete my Bachelor of Commerce degree.  I started my career with the Abbotsford Chamber of Commerce and was lucky to meet so many active community members. My connection to the city grew as I worked alongside new and established businesses, passionate non-profits and hard-working individuals.  

I am a mom of three beautifully tenacious girls and wife to Jason VanGarderen. When I’m not at school, sports, or playgrounds, I love spending time visiting our local trails and lakes - or doing anything that involves great food and good wine.

For years I checked the real estate apps in the same way most people check Facebook or Instagram. When my event planning business came to a halt thanks to the global pandemic, I decided to take my real estate obsession to the next level.

My husband and I have benefited greatly from early investments in real estate, now as a Realtor I am passionate about helping others make knowledge-driven decisions for themselves and their families. I believe that clients deserve a seamless buying and selling experience, where questions are answered before they are asked and no detail is overseen.

Client Testimonials

What they say

I pride myself in taking great care of my clients, making sure they understand and are confident in the buying or selling process.  
Read below for some comments from just a few of my recent clients.

Goldie is an excellent Realtor that cares so much about each of her client's unique needs.  She guided us through the whole process of buying our new house and selling our previous home with confidence and professionalism.  She not only answered every question we had but often offered information before we even asked, anticipating what we needed to know to make the best decisions.

Andrew and Vanessa

Goldie was very helpful throughout the whole process of selling our home. She was always available for any questions and provided dynamic solutions. We were very happy with our sale. Thanks Goldie!

Jerad & Margriet

Goldie was the perfect mix of helpful, thorough and available when you needed her. She would regularly bring to us good options and call to discuss the merits and rationale behind her recommendations both for and against properties. Having worked with a handful of realtors in the past, we can say without a doubt that Goldie is excellent at what she does and would highly recommend her.
