Known as the Oceanside region, the area encompasses Nanoose Bay and Fairwinds to the south on northward through Parksville, Qualicum Beach, and the Bowser / Deep Bay area - and then inland to encompass Errington, Coombs, and the Whiskey Creek areas.
We've got everything here from waterfront properties to inland acreages in a rural setting. We're about 2 hours from Victoria for city shopping. Certainly, Nanaimo is about 1/2 hour away. Courtenay is just up the road. There's a 2 hour ferry to the international city of Vancouver. We've got international airports at Comox and Nanaimo. It's very well connected here -- this really is a terrific place to live, folks.

The Home Buying Process in Plain English

I will book appointments and make any other preparations necessary for us to visit each of your selected
listings for an in-person home tour. I will provide you with my Buyers Guide, plus local
and regional publications to help you make the most of the up-coming home tours.
4 In-person Home Tours
Next, we’ll visit each of your selected listings for an in-person tour. This may take 1 to 3
days to see all the homes you want to. A maximum of about 6 homes per day is advisable (more
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

property that best suits your needs.
