Real Estate in Nanaimo

Living on acreage, I love being surrounded by nature, and with over 200 parks nearby, real estate in Nanaimo offers access to the most natural beauty. My favorite spots are Neck Point and Pipers Lagoon—the sunsets and sunrises are stunning!

For children's parks, my kids like Maffeo Sutton, because it's so big and because it offers extra waterfront activities like fishing and crabbing, not to mention that they love the outdoor concerts. Beban Park is also a family favourite, as there's always something exciting going on. Check out a Clippers game, ride the indoor pool's lazy river and waterslides, play golf or tennis or take your kids ice skating after a long play at the park. That'll wear ‘em out!

Nanaimo's vibrant downtown has changed a lot over just the last year or two. Aside from hosting several festivals such as the Bathtub Race, Silly Boat Regatta, Nanaimo Dragon Boat festival and Summertime Blues, the city center offers a wide variety of funky shops, art galleries, museums, a theatre and even the ever-so-popular Downtown Farmer's Market in the summertime!

I moved here from Maple Ridge, BC in 2005 and have never looked back! Nanaimo has been THE perfect place to raise my family, and aside from what I've already mentioned, here's why you should make Nanaimo your new home:

  • 4.2% unemployment rate is the lowest in BC
  • 60% lower commercial lease rates than Vancouver
  • 21% increase in passengers at Nanaimo airport
  • Over 25 flights per day and over 15 ferry routes per day
  • 20 minute flight to downtown Vancouver
  • Average Single Family New Construction Home is 43% lower than Vancouver
  • Top 5 Sectors are Technology, Construction, Healthcare, Retail and Tourism
  • Most affordable real estate in South West BC
  • And my favorite one…..THERE'S NO TRAFFIC!!

“I had no idea Nanaimo had this much to offer!” is a phrase I hear often from my clients. Visitors pass through the endless strip of malls thinking that there's really not much to Nanaimo aside from some good shopping, but Nanaimo is SO MUCH MORE!
