Hi there! I’m Bergen Urbanski, and I was born and raised in Winnipeg/Headingley. I started off my career path with a diploma in Audio, Video and Multimedia. While I thoroughly enjoyed the experiences that I gained in this chapter of my life I quickly realized this wasn’t the career for me. I moved on to the next passion of mine – FOOD! I did the university thing and earned my Bachelor of Science in Human Nutritional Sciences joining the ranks as a Professional Home Economist. Don’t get me wrong, it wasn’t an easy decision when I decided to take on real estate as I was going to be starting from scratch and facing a long hard road ahead. The benefits far outweighed the risk if you ask me. I would be running my own business (no more cover letters for me!), taking on a job that allows for some flexibility (removing the rigid 9-5 work week), and helping others find a place to call home.
I’ve now been a licensed full-time Realtor® in Winnipeg under the umbrella of Coldwell Banker Preferred Real Estate since March 2017 and haven’t looked back for a second. In addition to buying and selling resale homes, if you’re interested in building a new one – I work with Artista Homes, one of Manitoba’s Premier Custom Home Builder and you can find me out in Taylor Farm, Headingley!
I’ve come a long way from some 20 year old with an affinity for real estate who went to Open Houses just because I was curious about what was inside! I consider myself very fortunate to be one of those individuals who loves their job. I may have taken the scenic route to get there but in the end it allows me to bring all sorts of other skills, knowledge and expertise to the table that I’ve acquired along the way.
