Buying a Home

 The Comox Valley offers a diversity of urban and rural properties. Some feature ocean and mountain views, historic neighbourhoods, new developments, and peaceful rural settings. Few places can offer so much diversity in terms of housing, affordability, and lifestyle perks so it’s no wonder people from around the world choose the Comox Valley to call home. I’d love to talk with you about what you’re looking for in a home and a lifestyle, and then personally show you some of the fantastic listings available.

Not sure where to start? Here’s a brief overview of what the Comox Valley areas offer.

The highway greets the communities of Royston, Union Bay and Fanny Bay, which all have historic significance in the coal mining and forestry that led to the development of the area.
