Grant Holcombe began his career as a stock broker and investment adviser with Nesbitt Thompson, the company that later became BMO Nesbitt Burns. His background in finance and sales were easily transferred to his other interests.

After founding his own successful business in Richmond, B.C. in the 70′s he then turned his attention to Real Estate as a licensed real estate agent in 1977. By 1981 he became a Real Estate Broker, and founded his own successful realty firm in Surrey, B.C. After the sale of his Real Estate firm, he then managed for a period of time for Block Brothers Realty, one of the largest realty companies in Canada at the time.

In the mid 1980′s his business interests then spread to land development, new home construction in both the single family and multi- family markets. He has developed numerous building lots, multiple single family homes and hundreds of townhouses in the Surrey, Langley and Abbotsford region. He still maintains an active role in these areas through an associated company, Northridge Construction Ltd.

Currently he is the managing broker for Westridge Realty Co. and is actively engaged in real estate marketing, financing, and public speaking and teaching on the topic of real estate. He is the recipient of many Sales Awards. He offers a well rounded skill set in all facets of real estate, and has experienced all market conditions. It is hard to find a real estate challenge that Grant has not experienced.

In 2013 Grant authored his first book. It was published in November 2013 and the title is EXITS.
