Part of a being a good Realtor® is being knowledgeable in your community. Knowing the answers when people ask them: Where do I take my dog to the vet; Where do I find a good Americano? Is there a good French Immersion school nearby? Do you know a babysitter? The list goes. From septic field cleaning to coffee and wine drinking..
I am constantly out and about. If you know me, you will know I can’t sit still for long. Even while writing this I will likely get up three times. Moving around allows me to get out and learn about my community. It provides me the opportunity to enjoy what Parksville, Qualicum, Nanaimo, and surrounding area has to offer.
For example, this week I purchased client housewarming gifts. I like to buy local. Most of my client gifts I buy from Robert Held Art Glass. He is a glass blower and creates one-of-a-kind glass pieces for every taste and season. I can find a piece for everyone. I have clients who are millennials and have made a giant bar in their home. For them I was able to find a galaxy ball for this space in their new home. For my lovely friend who referred them to me, I was able to find a classy piece to hang in a window. Robert Held Art Glass even has a glass blowing experience where you can participate. I often take my kids in their to watch the process. Don’t miss it!
On another day this week I hiked up Notch Hill in Nanoose Bay, BC. It is a 35-60 minute hike that loops around giving unobstructed views of the mountains and Nanoose Bay. This is a dog and child friendly hike but is a pretty good climb. Taking the lower ridge (left at the fork) will allow for a more gradual climb rather than straight up. The parking lot is easily accessible from Powder Point Rd (right hand side). Climb and enjoy!
What is it that you want to know about? I love it when people call, DM, or email me with questions about the area. If I don’t know, I will research it or I will go try it. Any excuse for me to go eat, drink, run, or experience something new. I am in!
