The Nanaimo Real Estate Blog

Welcome to quirky Nanaimo! Where the people are friendly, the water views are plentiful and the street names are, well, just plain weird at times!

A big thanks to our weird and wonderful former Mayor, Frank Ney! He was a visionary, a leader, and had a wonderful imagination! Not only did Mayor Ney serve as Nanaimo's mayor on and off from the 1970s - 1990s, he was also a real estate developer. You will be able to immediately identify the neighbourhoods he developed or worked on because of their fun themes and unique names.

Yes, Bergen-Op-Zoom Drive is an actual street in the North end of Nanaimo! 

In the Hammond Bay/Departure Bay Area of Nanaimo you will find an entire Robin Hood themed neighbourhood. This area was developed in the late 70's

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
