Raphael Shehata

Content Strategist & Copywriter

Accredited with degrees in English Literature at the University of the Fraser Valley, as well as in Media Production and Content Creation at the British Columbia Institute of Technology, Raphael found his way into real estate marketing in search of a fun and fast-paced workplace to indulge his passion for storytelling. As a copywriter and content strategist, Raphael is responsible for the creation and craft of effective copy and prose across all company materials, as well as assisting in the production and implementation of content and media projects. Additionally comfortable with public speaking, Raphael has also taken the microphone on occasion at Sutton events as the master of ceremonies. Outside the office, Raphael enjoys being out in nature, tutoring English students, immersion into creative projects, and riding motorcycles on sunny days. Whether in keeping the copy airtight (and often alliterative) or in ensuring stakeholder satisfaction, Raphael always takes pride in delivering on a project well done.
