Many potential buyers I meet, say that they have raised their kids in the city and have enjoyed a great career in an urban setting. But now that it’s time for retirement, they strive for a slower pace in a more natural setting with lots of things to do. Qualicum Beach and it’s adjacent communities are close at hand to so many interesting places to visit. Certainly we have golf, gardening, boating, the arts and an abundance of nature at hand.

The Home Buying Process in Plain English
Below, I’ve outlined the buying process steps. I can offer you an enjoyable,
informative, no pressure buying experience and introduction to the area.
1 Set-up Initial Meeting Appointment
To set-up a meeting to review suitable property listings, call my office, toll-free,
at 1-888-243-1071 or my direct number (250) 752-2588. Or, if you prefer, use the

2 Review of Candidate Listings
At our first meeting, we will sit down together at the RE/MAX First Realty office

than that and things can get a bit overwhelming). We want you to enjoy your visit as it’s important
for you to have time to get out and look around at what will be your new home area.
5 Narrow Down the List to the Best Property
As we look at each home, I’ll ask you to rate each home on a scale of 1 to 4 (1 being best). We drop the 3s and
