Featured Gabriola Real Estate Listings


Your time is an investment in yourself. Whether you’re buying or selling on Gabriola or in the Nanaimo, Vancouver Island areas, count on me to bounce off your present and future dreams.

Sometimes the hard decisions “should we upsize; downsize; move closer to family; move closer to that ache in our hearts” needs someone like me to listen. This decision can take months or years to come to a head. I’m here to listen and then to put our plan in motion when you’re ready.

An example of what I offer can be found in a recent testimonial that I received from one of my customers.  It was quite the up and down experience in emotions while we made our way through selling their beautiful home, and moving into a temporary location while we were waiting again for the right home to come on the market. Voila! They are happy as clams. Moved in, unpacked, and coming up for air, walking their dogs on the beaches and trails close to their new abode. (cont’d below video)

“I thought you’d like to stash this away with the thought that one day, you’ll be here for good! Was delightful to spend some time with you today. Next time it will be longer, for sure!”

Carol Marin

…We have been in our new home for a short time, and are sufficiently unpacked that I can finally pass on comments on our dealings with Carol Martin.

We would like to thank her for all her patience, wisdom, and determination to find us our dream spot here. We started our search in July 2017, and despite a couple of failed offers, Carol kept up our spirits with her optimism and persistence.

She was always there to answer questions about properties and especially about life in smaller communities. We always knew that she had our best interests in mind with any of the offers we made, and went beyond due diligence.

We would heartily recommend her for anyone considering a sale of their home, and a purchase of your new home. We couldn’t be happier!”

A perfect match. This is one of many good news stories. That’s my goal for you! You can count on it.

Call me!
Looking forward to meeting you!

James Bond Martini, the Vesper

“Bond, James Bond!” cultured the perfect martini, his namesake The James Bond Martini, AKA the Vesper.  Shaken – not stirred.  A matter of convention in martini circles, Sean Connery bucked the trend in the 1962 “Dr No”.  Shaken, poignantly.  Welcome to my blog on...
