Work with a Seniors Real Estate Specialist®

How my SRES® designation helps clients

 

Photo: Nathalia Bariani                

 

If you’re a senior and thinking of buying or selling, you may want to consider working with a designated Seniors Real Estate Specialist® (SRES®). Something, conveniently, I happen to be!

 

Whether you’re retiring and down-sizing, moving to be closer to grandchildren or finally getting that view property you’ve always dreamed of, as an SRES® Realtor® I have the knowledge and experience to help with every aspect of your move.

 

What SRES® (Seniors Real Estate Specialist®) means

An SRES® agent has had specialized training to help you every step of the way, from financing to marketing to understanding emotions involved in making certain life changes.

 

As an SRES® designee, I bring a customized approach to marketing and selling your property. I will work closely with you to explore housing options that serve your current and future needs.

 

Additionally, I also have working relationships with numerous other professionals – such as Anne Delaney of Delaney Relocation and Home Support Services – who are also well versed in helping people with their later life moves.

 

No matter what questions you may have, I can help you find answers. 

 

Why I became an SRES® Realtor®

Becoming an SRES® real estate agent just made sense for me. I continually strive to upgrade my education to better serve my clients. As a former registered nurse, I have always been drawn to caring for people in all aspects of their lives. So being recognized as a Realtor® who works with seniors or people nearing retirement is something that seemed a natural fit.

 

If you or your friends and family are looking for a Realtor® who understands the seniors housing market, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with me.

 

In fact, I can help with any inquiries about real estate in the Comox Valley. Be sure to check out my Comox Valley Real Estate and MLS listings and visit my Facebook page.

As a relocation specialist, I know how to help with your move

 

For members of the military and RCMP, moving is a necessary – not to mention hectic – part of life. As an Approved Service Provider of the Integrated Relocation Program and registered with Brookfield Global Relocation Services, I’ve been helping military and RCMP families relocate throughout my career.

 

I know military transfers can be stressful and that no two moves are alike. But I also know the process and understand how to help.

 

Whether you’re moving cross-province or cross-country, in the summer or in the winter, there are steps that you can take to make this change as smooth as possible. And the great thing is, once you get here you will love all that the Comox Valley has to offer!

 

Relocation Step 1: Get started right away

Obviously, you will receive plenty of information regarding all aspects of your transfer through your relocation advisor. It can seem overwhelming, but it’s important that you get the ball rolling right away. From doing paperwork to gathering moving boxes, keeping on top of things will make you feel more organized and in control.

 

Relocation Step 2: Choose the right Realtor®

Having the right Comox Valley Realtor® will make your military or RCMP transfer so much easier. First and foremost, make sure you find someone who has relocation experience. It’s a busy time so you want to ensure your needs will be well looked after. Testimonials and referrals from friends and work associates are always a good place to start.

 

You may want to interview a few real estate agents before settling on a final choice. Things to keep in mind during your initial conversations: are they listening to your thoughts and concerns; do they respond in a timely manner; are they well versed in the process and knowledgeable about the community; are they someone who works well with your family?

 

Relocation Step 3: When house hunting, know what you want but keep an open mind

Having chosen your Comox Valley Realtor®, make sure you have had a good conversation prior to your trip about what your requirements are. Let them know your itinerary to ensure they’re able to promptly and effectively serve your needs. That being said, don’t be afraid to “look outside the box” if they suggest new ideas. When you have the right Realtor®, you feel good about putting your trust in them to find the right place for you.

 

Relocation Step 4: Do your homework about your new community

A little knowledge is a good thing; a lot is even better. Don’t wait until your House Hunting Trip to find out about your new community. By learning about all that your new location has to offer, you can feel less overwhelmed upon your arrival. From recreation opportunities to the local shopping and entertainment options, it’s nice to have a lay of the land and get excited about future plans! In fact, feel free to check out some of my recent blogs about what makes Comox and the rest of the Comox Valley so great, including its beaches, hiking areas, festivals and entertainment.

 

 

I’d be happy to guide you through this busy time with confidence. My knowledge of the process will take the worry out of this part of your relocation.

Please contact me to find out more about local real estate opportunities or have a look at my Comox Valley real estate and MLS listings.

A time of year when the Valley really shines!

 

Finally, it’s winter . . . YAY!

 

Unlike the rest of Canada, Comox Valley residents count the days to its arrival rather than its exit. Of course, the rest of Canada can’t boast about a world-class alpine resort, year-round golf, all-terrain biking options, snowmobile trails galore and clearest visibility scuba diving!

 

Mount Washington – winter wonderland, indeed!

Obviously, Mt. Washington Alpine Resort offers many of the things we love about winter. Snowshoeing, tubing, snowboarding, and downhill and cross-country skiing will keep you fit and busy throughout the winter months. No matter the weather or day of the week, there is plenty to see and do slopeside on Vancouver Island’s largest year-round family resort.

Other Comox Valley winter recreation

 

Valley-wise – meaning sub-alpine – there are numerous other activities to choose from throughout the year, such as golf, hiking, biking and kayaking. But have you ever tried winter scuba diving? As they say, it’s always a nice day below the waves, and wintertime offers excellent visibility.

 

And for your dining pleasure . . . Dine Around Comox Valley

 

In my books, it’s also always a good time to eat. But Dine Around Comox Valley means mid-February to mid-March is an especially good time! During this annual month-long event, local restaurants offer special menus at a special rate, leaving your palate pleased and senses satisfied.

 

Kerr

 

Yes, around here winter means a whole lot more than cozying up with books near a fireplace, although we make sure to fit that in, too! With all this, you’ll find yourself wishing winter in the Comox Valley came more than once a year!

 

Isn’t it time you started looking forward to winter? Feel free to contact me to find out about real estate options in the Comox Valley. Or check out my Comox Valley real estate and MLS listings.

The Comox Valley offers fantastic walking and hiking trails for all levels

 

 

One of the best things about living in the Comox Valley is the opportunity to hit the trails any time of the year. From a laid-back stroll along the seaside to a dawn-to-dusk workout up Mount Albert Edwards, there is something for everyone in this Land of Plenty.

 

 

Relaxed routes abound throughout Comox Valley Parks

 

 Trying to choose a favourite walking or light hiking trail in the Comox Valley is like choosing a favourite child – it simply can’t be done. I find the best approach is to think about where you want to wander. Seal Bay Park allows for ocean vistas among towering conifers, Wildwood and One-Spot Trails offer that meadowy-country feel, while the Lazo Wildlife Park appeals because of the interesting flora and fauna.

 

Then again, why not check out the Comox Valley Regional District’s Parks page for a good list describing locations and attractions of various Valley parks? Start at the top and do them all!

 

 

A mix of hiking opportunities at Mount Washington’s Paradise Meadows

 

The trails that make up Paradise Meadows are varied both in terms of length and difficulty, but their beauty is consistent. Ranging from three to more than twenty kilometers in distance, they’re well worth the drive up the mountain. So pack a lunch and make a day of it! Make sure you’re prepared for alpine conditions and, of course, if you’re thinking about heading up between November and March, you’d better pack snowshoes, too!

 

 

Looking for a hiking challenge? Strathcona Provincial Park hits the mark

 

There are numerous advanced hikes within the snow-capped peaks of Strathcona Park. BC’s oldest provincial park offers hikers both day trip and overnight backpacking challenges. Mount Albert Edwards and the Comox Glacier are perennial local favourites that will test even experienced hikers. Like with any remote hiking areas, these trails are not necessarily maintained, natural hazards exist and weather conditions can change quickly, so plan accordingly!

 

Whatever your ability or energy level, you can find a trail to fit the bill within the Comox Valley.

 

Looking for a property in the Valley that also fits the bill? Feel free to contact me about local real estate at 250-338-3888 or check out my MLS listings.

Whether walking, swimming or combing, living near a beach is a lifestyle in the Comox Valley 

Life’s a beach. Or it can be if you want it to be – especially when you’re living in the Comox Valley

 

There’s something undeniably magical about living near water. From the smell of the sea and the soothing sounds of waves lapping on the shoreline to the ever-changing visuals of a running river, water makes our senses come alive. It’s no wonder so many people desire waterfront property, whether it be by the ocean, a lake or a river, and that destinations like Vancouver Island are so popular.

 

Fortunately for us, the Comox Valley is blessed with an abundance of choices when it comes to accessibility to the water. Here are just some of my (and my dog’s) favourite water spots. 

 

Comox Peninsula beaches are salty and sweet – Kye Bay, Point Holmes, Goose Spit

 

The beaches of the Comox Peninsula have something for everyone, depending on the day and the activity. If it’s looking for sand dollars and flying a kite on tidal flats, Kye Bay is hard to beat. However, if you’re into exploring intertidal pools bustling with marine life, Point Holmes is the place to be. Feel like getting active? A refreshing dip after running the steps at Goose Spit should fit the bill – then again relaxing by one of the Spit’s firepits (pre-stocked with wood) might be easier.  

 

Rivers mean never having to say you’re salty – The Puntledge

 

Not only home to the occasional prehistoric marine reptile (fossils only, don’t worry), the Puntledge River offers an impressive array of trails, rapids, falls, and swimming holes that keep swimmers, trail runners, fishers, tubers and paddlers happy throughout the year. It’s one of the Comox Valley’s true gems. Whether exploring at Nymph Falls, swimming at Stotan or paddling at Puntledge Park, there is plenty of scenery and activity to keep everyone in the family happy.

 

The Valley’s Great Lakes – Comox and Maple Lakes

Of course, maybe getting out in a canoe and dragging a fishing lure behind you is more your speed – enter the lakes of Cumberland. Surrounded by conifers, 20-hectare Maple Lake is a lesser-known Valley treasure. Stocked with rainbow and cutthroat trout, the lake is for non-motorized boats only, which helps ensure there is always plenty of wildlife to enjoy. On the other end of the size scale is the majestic, glacier-fed Comox Lake. Its various swimming, fishing and paddlesport offerings have helped make Cumberland a relative recreational Mecca.

 

Take it from me, regardless of the time of year, there is always something to see and do at water’s edge.

 Why Comox real estate listings are attracting much more than retirees these days

 

Thinking about buying a home in Comox? If not, perhaps it’s time you did!

 

Once thought of as an idyllic seaside retirement village, the town of Comox is quickly outgrowing its sleepy reputation. 

 

Today’s Comox by the Sea offers a full oceanside experience, with a little something for everybody – providing, of course, you have the energy and exuberance to take it on! From kiteboarding at Goose Spit to fine dining and even finer shopping, Comox has a lot more going on than you may have heard. It’s no wonder Comox real estate, including some phenomenal waterfront real estate, is perennially popular! 

 

For a taste of the aquatic pursuits for which so many in the Comox Valley flock to Comox, start at Goose Spit. The town’s most accessible beach, Goose Spit is the local go-to for sports like stand-up paddleboarding (“SUP”ing), kayaking or just plain swimming. On hot summer days, the spit feels almost tropical – hence the locals’ nickname of “Little Mexico” for one of its sandy inner beaches. When the wind picks up, so do the sailboats, kite boarders and windsurfers; with calm water on the inside and chop on the outside, Goose Spit offers a challenge for all skill levels.

  

Meet me at the Comox Marina!

 

 

If you don’t have experience to tackle these activities by yourself, you can sign up for a sailing or SUP course from Compass Adventure, situated in the heart of Comox Bay Marina Park. (They also rent SUPs, kayaks and sailboats.)

 

And since you’re at the Marina anyway, you’re going to want to pick up some of the freshest seafood on the planet at Comox’s own Fisherman’s Wharf. Depending on the season, you can purchase prawns, shrimp, salmon, tuna and halibut directly from the local fishermen who ply the shimmering waters of the Salish Sea.

 

Of course, when you’re living in the Comox Valley, you’re not going to want to cook for yourself all the time – especially not with so many great restaurants within a short drive or stroll! Comox once again has you covered, from gelato to sushi, Indian to Italian and contemporary to just coffee. As an added bonus, many Comox eateries feature oceanside patios from which to enjoy the Comox Valley’s locally produced (and often award-winning) food and drink.

 

Want to win a gift certificate to the Blackfin Pub, home to the finest Oceanside patio in the Comox Valley? (Join my mailing list and you could win a $100 gift card to the Blackfin Pub in Comox. A winner will be selected September 1.) 

 

Get out and explore the Town of Comox

 

After indulging in any or all of the above, hike off your meal on one of the many trails etched into Comox’s impressive geography. Some wind their way through towering firs; others hug the contours of the sea or weave through the eclectic boutiques of downtown Comox. Stop in at one of those shops for a self-guided walking tour brochure; while you’re at it, stroll along Comox Avenue to see the unique treasures that await the casual seaside shopper.

 

When you make Comox your home, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to experience the many festivals Comox hosts each summer, celebrating everything from fine art and First Nation culture to local shellfish and seaside shenanigans. On August long weekend alone (“Festival Weekend” in Comox), you can take in as many as four different festivals.

 

The Town of Comox – this cosy little community perched on the edge of the ocean – has a heck of a lot going on. Make time to experience everything Comox has to offer.

Summertime is festival time in the Comox Valley, and we just so happen to have one of the Valley’s most anticipated festivals coming up on BC Day weekend.

 

The Filberg Festival, July 29 to Aug. 1, 2016, is the Comox Valley’s premier arts festival, “celebrating the best of arts, crafts, and music.” And I have two 4-day festival passes to give away to one lucky winner. All you need to enter is an email address.

 

Simply click here for your chance to win.

The Filberg Festival features lively entertainment, a wide variety of artists and artisans and an eclectic selection of great eats to keep you fuelled. It all takes place in the historic Filberg Park, overlooking the pristine waters of Comox Harbour and the majestic Beaufort Mountains.

 

Whether you’re a longtime Comox Valley resident or you’re just beginning to discover all that our community has to offer, I invite you to contact me with any of your questions about the local real estate market.

Year-round festivals are just one great reason to make the Comox Valley your home

 

The mid-morning sun glistens off the majestic Comox Glacier. The refreshing aromas of cedar forests and ocean breezes mingle in every breath and the energy of an entire community pulses through the warm spring air. It’s festival season in the Comox Valley!

 

The Comox Valley, nestled between mountain and sea on the eastern edge of Vancouver Island, has been referred to as the “Valley of Festivals,” and with good reason. The idyllic region boasts more than 50 annual festivals and events, and during the summer months it’s possible to attend a different festival every weekend.

From the bounty and beauty of the Valley’s farms, rivers and ocean to the diversity of arts and culture in the region, the Comox Valley has much to celebrate. And never ones to take life too seriously, Valley residents are always keen to throw a party.

After a winter spent skiing, snowboarding and golfing (that’s right, six of the Comox Valley’s golf courses are open year-round), summer is ushered in with a solid jolt of adrenaline with the Royal LePage Snow to Surf Adventure Race in late April. Participants begin on the snowy slopes of Mount Washington and finish on the shimmering waters of the Comox Marina. While there’s never a shortage of über-fit hard bodies at the Snow to Surf, the main attraction is the lively entertainment, boisterous beer gardens and jovial socializing down at the marina throughout the day-long event.

 

Later, months of pent-up exuberance explode in June, July and August as revellers from all over Vancouver Island and the mainland converge on the Comox Valley for the Valley’s biggest and most anticipated events.

Vancouver Island MusicFest (July 8-10, 2016) is a three-day celebration of roots and world music from around the globe, and is the largest music festival on Vancouver Island. Far from just another outdoor concert, MusicFest features six stages sprawled out over a vast area of fields and forest hugging the shores of the gently flowing Tsolum River. Bedouin Soundclash, Tegan & Sara and Don McLean are just some of the internationally renowned performers that have graced the stages of MusicFest in recent years, and the 2016 line-up is expected to be just as impressive with rockers 54-40 headlining Sunday night.

Not to be outdone, Atmosphere Gathering is an intentionally small music festival held annually in the Village of Cumberland. The 2016 festival takes place August 19-21 and will feature a diverse line-up of eclectic performances and a variety of workshops.

 

On BC Day weekend, festival-goers descend on the picturesque town of Comox for two iconic Comox Valley summer events. The Filberg Festival (July 29 to Aug 1, 2016), a 4-day celebration of the arts, features some of the best Canadian arts and entertainment in a spectacular oceanside setting. There’s always a lively turnout exploring the myriad booths and displays, taking in the live music or simply enjoying the ambiance from a sunny spot on the grass. With crafts and activities for kids and lively musical performances, the Filberg Festival is a definite must-see on the Comox Valley festival circuit.



Comox Nautical Days (July 30 to Aug 1, 2016), which takes place the same weekend at the Comox Marina, features it own brand of fun and frivolity. The annual event features a popular bullhead fishing derby, the always-hilarious Build, Bail and Sail, rides and games for the kids and a 4-mile road running race – the longest continually held footrace in BC.

 

In the Comox Valley, the fun never stops

 

Between the major summer festivals, visitors and residents of the Comox Valley get their kicks at events such as the wine festival, beer festival, whisky festival, shellfish festival and fall fair – not to mention the classic car show, artist studio tours, and summer concert series. The list goes on and on . . .

 

As autumn descends on the Comox Valley the raucous summer festivals make way for craft fairs and harvest celebrations, which eventually fade into winter fairs, cultural or solstice celebrations and winter alpine events. Valley residents, of course, are still active as eve – hiking, skiing, golfing and kayaking their way through the mild Vancouver Island winter.

 

If you listen closely, however, you can just barely catch the buzz of budding anticipation slowly building into a crescendo of exuberance that will once again erupt into another lively summer in the Valley of Festivals.

Waterfront property in Fanny Bay/Buckley Bay/Union Bay

Waterfront property in Comox: 13,000 strong and located on the southern coast of the Comox Peninsula on the Salish Sea, Comox is a spectacular little town boasting first-class amenities and overlooking the iconic Comox Glacier. There are myriad oceanfront real estate opportunities interspersed along the perimeter of the peninsula, offering the very best of West Coast living in the Comox Valley.

 

Waterfront property on Williams Beach/Miracle Beach: Nestled in a pristine area of second growth forest just north of Merville and Black Creek, this area is one of the few remaining sections of Crown Land on the east coast of Vancouver Island.
