Steve Shaffer

Sales Representative

Steve was born and raised in New Brunswick but now calls Nova Scotia home. He spent many years owning a business right here in Annapolis Royal, before he moved on to work at CP Rail for 28 years, 7 years as an Industrial Sales Representative.

Steve enjoys spending time in the warmer months riding motorcycles with the 74th Crusaders, and swinging clubs right here at Fort View Golf Course. As he has for many years, “I remember golfing on this course when it was only 9 holes and the old Pro Shop was still standing by #17 tee box. It is a pleasure to see how this course has evolved to what it is and will be.”

Steve has taken great pleasure in consulting with the choice of a mini home manufacturer, one that would meet our standards, and is now excited to join our Sales Team. He says“I am proud to be part of these changes and look forward to helping people move into a beautiful new custom home located at Fort View Village.”
