Ah...Victoria! When I was deciding where to establish a career in Real Estate, I could have chosen any number of places. But once I looked at Victoria from a real estate perspective, I didn't want to be anywhere else. I love variety - "It's the spice of life!" There's a tremendous variety of architecture and interesting neighborhoods that have a unique flavor all their own. Being surrounded by the ocean is another beautiful aspect of life here - not to mention the incredible diversity of plant life due to the moderate climate. For good reason, it's called the City of Gardens!
The size of the area is perfect as well. It only takes 5-10 minutes to meet a friend at your favorite local coffee place. Even getting to the ferries or to the Westshore, you're only looking at about 20-30 minutes. And to reach a nature park...15-40 minutes depending on which one you choose.
Culturally there is so much to do, with special interest clubs galore, theatres, sports facilities, a vibrant music and arts community, and a high degree of eco-awareness which is dear to my heart. My husband and I have begun to take ballroom dancing lessons, and I love to walk, hike, garden, and golf (among other things). Can you tell I love this place?
I've been helping people buy and sell homes on the southern tip of Vancouver Island for over 25 years. Being more of a one-on-one person, I see myself as a trusted personal advisor. Although I've helped hundreds buy and sell properties, every person is unique. Each has their distinct perspective, unique challenges and various concerns. This is when I love to shine some knowledge and insight on their situation, and bring my patience and genuine caring to help people make great decisions for themselves. I won't tell you what you want to hear simply to get your business. However, even though I'm not shy about offering my opinion and advice (that's what you pay me for!), I truly respect that the final decision is always yours. When you work with me to accomplish your real estate goals, I'm confident you'll benefit from my ability to provide "Sensitive Sales Solutions" that are uniquely appropriate for you.
