This Island listing is so amazing I just had to blog about it!

From the MLS Listing: 
"Once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire one of the most sought-after private islands in Canada’s pacific coastal waters. Sear Island, the crown jewel of the Flat Top Group, is located off the south tip of Gabriola Island, nestled in the protected waters of Silva Bay and in the heart of yachting paradise that are the Southern Gulf Islands. Boasting 28 acres of pristine, natural beauty, Sear Island is one of the rare private gulf islands that is fully serviced by BC Hydro by way of submarine power line from Gabriola Island. " 

Can you imagine living here?

Personally, I may be biased, but I love the sunsets in the North End of Nanaimo. 

Often I am driving up town to Aspen Grove school where our daughter goes to school and I detour to look at the skies and the view over Dover Bay and in Lantzville. 

Later once the sun starts setting, there really isn't a better spot (my opinion) than right down by those crazy stairs everyone hikes up and down (anyone know what they are called?) they are right off of Icarus Drive. 

Anyways, where do you think the prettiest sunsets are in Nanaimo? Would love to hear from you.

Photo was taken from our home in North Jinglepot area, also epic views if you're interested in amazing farm land and beautiful mountain skies.

Here in Nanaimo we have been in a seller's market for some time! This seller's market is driven by low inventory and low mortgage rates. The last few homes I sold went into multiple offers and you may be surprised on why the seller choose one buyer over the next.....*hint* it's not always price!

Nanaimo is awesome!

I have lived in Nanaimo almost my whole life and have always enjoyed the proximity to oceans, lakes, rivers and mountains! These things are all very diverse and that’s what makes Nanaimo such a special place to live.

Weird Nanaimo Names

 Jinglepot! Let’s just start with the name, who doesn’t love a fun name that is not only a road but defines an entire area in Nanaimo? Thanks to our former “Pirate Mayor” Frank Ney, who served our community in some capacity during the late 60’s all the way to 90’s. As a developer, Frank Ney, was involved in naming many streets in Nanaimo. As you get to know our wonderful community you will notice such street names…
