Realtor, Co-Owner

Denny Dumas

My professional career began working in bars and restaurants. Looking back, these 5 years were pivotal to my development in business. It’s fascinating how adaptive and patient you learn to become when serving food and beverages to all types of people. After a couple life altering events, I decided it was time to take the leap into Real Estate in 2014. I had always been very interested in real estate, architecture, and how cities evolve and grow with development. I was given a fantastic opportunity to team up with one of Greater Vancouver’s best agents, and I knew I would do everything I could to take advantage of that opportunity. The first year was an eye opening struggle, but I learned so much about who I am and how persistent I could be. I helped grow the business from $30Million in sales in 2014 to over $525Million in sales in the last 5 years (2016-2020), and am now a Partner in the Garbutt + Dumas Real Estate Team which is in the top 1% of Real Estate Teams in Greater Vancouver. Real Estate, both selling and investing in it, is a huge passion of mine!

Outside of real estate I love to keep active. Fitness has become extremely important in my life. Activities vary through the seasons but include: running, working out, golf, hiking, snowboarding. I have fallen in love with the podcast platform and now host 3 podcasts: The Denny Dumas Podcast, The Garbutt + Dumas Real Estate Podcast, and The Seahawks Social Podcast. I love sharing my experiences both personally and professionally and that has been a really big motivator of mine over the past few years. I am constantly looking to grow and improve, and being a support for the growth of others has been very rewarding.

Adversity is the key to my motivation and what drives my work ethic. I’ve had some ups and downs in sports, business and my personal life but I have found a way to just use those experiences to learn and continue to grow. I have some life philosophies that I’m super passionate about and that are the corner stones of my mindset.

Lucas McCann

I grew up in Victoria after moving from Regina and instantly fell in love with the West Coast. I’ve been in sales my whole life, from fishing golf balls out of the woods, to working in the restaurant industry as a Server, Bartender and GM, to the film industry as an Actor, selling wine for my family’s vineyard, and working as a business manager in the auto industry. I’ve always thrived in sales and wouldn’t change a thing.

I always know that I would end up in the Real Estate Industry and it was just a matter of time that I’d find the perfect fit, the Team at G+D Real Estate. After being on my own for my first 2 years in Real Estate, I’ve been able to master my marketing skills. These skills have been a great added value to anyone looking to hire us. Approaching my business as an Entrepreneurial mindset is what sets me apart from most other Realtors.

In my personal time my Wife, Lindsay, and I love the outdoors. You will find us running, hiking, walking or adventuring any new trails and mountains we can find. We call Port Moody home and have a rambunctious dog named Sadie. She’s a Viszla and those who know…know! She serves, as my assistant sometimes but mainly wants my attention or treats. I love to golf, enjoy craft beer,  and travelling. Most recently I travelled to the Philippine’s for 3 weeks with my Wife as our Honeymoon.

Taking the time to unwind is what drives to push even harder when I get back to work!

Monica Harmse

My most powerful talent lies in my dynamic work ethic. I have an intense competitive streak that has forged me into a creative problem solver with a knack for reading between the lines and tenacity for achievement. My path to real estate was inevitable.  Graduating university with a Broadcast Journalism degree before moving into advertising as an Executive for Hearst Media, I found working with people to be a highlight. It was only natural that my entrepreneurial spirit led me to the business of real estate but kept me in the business of people. 

Let’s be real! There’s more to life than real estate. I am proud to have immigrated to Canada. I’ve been married for almost 10 years and my husband, Kevin, also immigrated to Canada as a child. We live and work in the Tri-Cities and enjoy every bit of culture and scenery it provides. We spend our free time outside and on the go! My daughter, Thea, is a competitive dancer, tennis player, and goofball.  We are all obsessed with our German Wirehaired Pointer, Donna, and if you follow me on Instagram, you will be obsessed with Donna, too!

Enjoying life is absolutely essential and I exercise this theme fiercely. My greatest professional achievements come when I help put a home buyer into an environment that allows them to live as experiential as possible. Love where you live.

Adam Senuik

I was extremely excited to join the Garbutt + Dumas real estate team after 5 years of running a successful painting business and working my way into upper management within the Franchise. I was able to grow that business to the point of having 20+ employees working at one time. My, “Second Team,” is the New Westminster Hyacks Football Program where I volunteer as a coach with the Junior Varsity and Senior Varsity Teams at New Westminster Secondary School. I am also the Coaching Coordinator for the entire Hyacks Football Program which covers all of our teams from youth to High School. I come from a family of teachers, and I find coaching as the perfect way for me to scratch my teaching itch, while still pursuing a career that constantly challenges and pushes me.

I grew up in Sherwood Park, a town just outside of Edmonton, moved to Vancouver to play football at UBC, and won the 2015 National Championship with them in my final year before hanging up the cleats. Away from work, I have a love for music and anything art. I have played guitar since I was in the 7th grade.  In 2018 I started producing my own music and I have a lot of songs produced and am excited to get to the point of sharing them with everyone. I strive to stay true to who I am, so the Adam that you deal with when buying/selling your home, will be the same Adam that you come across in the grocery store or at a community event! I believe that being honest and genuine makes for a better client experience, and also makes handling business easier on myself; so everyone is happy and can act with clarity and certainty!

Chelsea Fitchette

After 7+ years in the management and customer service arena, I can genuinely say that my strengths lay in connecting with people, understanding their unique needs, and my dedication to helping actualize their goals. My hard work and perseverance serve myself and my clients well as we work together to make their home buying and selling dreams come true. I am so pleased to be working with fellow realtors on the Garbutt + Dumas team who share values of continued education and superior client service. When it comes to real estate, my goal is to make the buying, selling, and investing process as easeful as possible – as well as help educate clients on all things real estate.

I was born and raised in Langley BC, were I currently live with my partner Cam and our Jack Russell terror… I mean Terrier… named Jack! After I graduated from Trinity Western University where I played volleyball and majored in human kinetics I moved to Whistler and quickly took a job with a well known retail company (think black stretchy pants.) I spent the next seven years in management- specializing in people development and community connection. I had the opportunities to create regional hiring strategies, develop year long community outreach and marketing initiatives, lead multiple personal development workshops, and create and host large scale community events. The greatest opportunity, though, was when Cam and I were able to move to New Zealand for a year to work overseas. Since moving home in 2020, I decided to switch career paths and move into real estate and I haven’t looked back!

I understand the importance of loving where you live. Although I am a huge advocate for getting out into nature, I also LOVE my home. No matter where in the world I’ve been I always love coming back. I’m looking forward to helping you find and love the feeling of coming home.

Rachel Wakaluk

After working for 20+ years as an Executive Assistant in the medical / regulating arena, engineering, fundraising and for non-profits, I decided to come back to the real estate world and joined Garbutt + Dumas last year. I’m your Operations Manager.

From start to finish I handle all the “little details” behind the scenes: coordinate all your paperwork, keep the office in order, organize client events, shop and put together your gifts.

I was born and raised in Burnaby. My partner and I enjoy taking our dog Genghis out forlo adventures. Genghis is a 12 year old, half husky/malamute (all furball) that loves the woods and french fries. I love spending time with my goddaughters, pursuing my passion in photography and exploring the amazing world of food options we have locally. When I have some quiet time, you can find me re-reading some favourite books…usually a mystery or Star Wars / GoT related. (Yes, I’m the office nerd).
