The Lal Team Biography


We Love Fraser Valley Living

James and Jennifer Lal have been Abbotsford residents for over 29 years and love every part of Fraser Valley Living. Abbotsford is such a unique place to live, it has all the amenities of a large city, while tucked in amongst vast thriving farmland. Even after traveling the world, James and Jennifer will always call this wonderful community home.


A Bit About James
 

When he was a teenager, James’ parents owned the historic Bradner General Store and he gained a great appreciation for “small town – farm community” living. A strong work ethic was instilled in him from an early age which has carried through to his adult years and has proven to be a great contributor to his success. Since he has been selling Real Estate, James has been able to utilize his second language (Hindi) much more frequently. Clients have appreciated the fact that their home is being marketed in two languages, therefore reaching a larger audience.

 


A Bit About Jennifer

As Jennifer’s family owned Easy Living Magazine, she was constantly surrounded with “Advertising & Marketing Strategy Talk”. This has helped boost her career as she is able to identify the most proven ways of marketing a property for sale with the best results. Since joining Keller Williams Valley Realty Jennifer has been appointed to the “Technology Chair” in the company’s ALC (Agent Leadership Council) and is also currently the Abbotsford MLS Tour Co-ordinator.

 


The Lal's Love Hockey!

Hockey is an important family activity in the Lal house. James currently plays in three different ball hockey leagues and they are extremely proud “Hockey Parents” to their son, Sean, who has been active in the Abbotsford Minor Hockey system for the past 7 years. 

 


Life in Germany

James joined a band in 1998 and ended up touring throughout Germany from 2000-2001.
His band played many festivals and were even invited by the German Police to play at their annual Ball. The band recorded a CD before they left on tour and were awarded a distribution deal throughout all of Canada. Their second CD was recorded in Germany and was given regular air-play on German radio stations. James and Jennifer lived in the small town of Hann Munden during this time and enjoyed experiencing Germany as residents, rather than tourists. From it’s friendly people to it’s fast highways, Germany will always hold a special place in their hearts.

 


A Wealth of Knowledge
When they returned from Germany, The Lal’s decided to tap into their marketing background and started a company that coached other real estate agents on how to market their business. It was after a few years of doing this that they realized that they loved the industry and wanted to be a bigger part of it.
