Story
Introduction
I am a very progressive REALTOR that works in the Nanaimo area of Vancouver Island. I actually cover the entire island, from Victoria to Duncan to Parksville to Comox. I am well know for my creative marketing initiatives and large sales volume in the area. I have an private office (located in North Nanaimo) separate from the main RE/MAX OCEAN POINTE office. I have an exclusive back-office staff and several REALTORS that work with me on my team. 

My goal is to gradually increase my overall market share in the Nanaimo area by providing cutting edge marketing and a superior customer experience.

This is the music blog that my cat and I run. If you are in need of discovering some new music - this is a good place to find new bands and artists.

Yappy, annoying dogs around listings, strata condos, etc.?

Just thought it would be a good idea to share a solution to a problem that I have found over and over.

Have you ever listed a property only to find that there is a yappy or barking dog next door? I have - and it drives away buyers like crazy.

Over the past couple of years I have had my listing clients buy one of these ultrasonic anti-bark devices and it works really well (but it takes a few days to a week to "train" the offending dog). Humans can't hear the frequencies.

I also recommended this to a strata condo association that was having issues with a dog when the owners were away. It has also worked great on rental properties - especially houses with suites or duplexes/four-plexes where dogs reside.

I've also had a few issues where a client moves into a house then find that they have this issue with a neighbour or tenant's dog.

Let me know if this helps solve any problems for anybody else.

Nanaimo's best property management company in my opinion. From a landlord' perspective, this company puts a real effort into finding quality tenants. I often recommend them to my clients. WES SMITH, REALTOR®, RE/MAX OCEAN POINTE

I booked this motel because of the Trip Advisor and Google+ reviews. I have to wonder if some of the positive reviews were planted (Many of the positive reviews are by people with only one review). Front desk staff were friendly on check in and check out - but the rooms and the motel's control of what happens in their parking lot were dismal. Regarding the rooms - my room smelled terrible. Somewhere between mold, dust, and some kind of chemical. I should have asked to change rooms - but I was in a hurry to go pick up somebody at the airport. The room appeared clean but I was afraid to look to carefully. All the furniture was marked up and probably relics of the 70's. The carpet looked like it was last cleaned in that decade as well. The bathrooms are small but adequate - mine having some new lino on the floor. However, you get something the size of a hand towel instead of a bath towel - and there is no shampoo. The walls were pretty beat up in the room as well. The smell in the room affected my allergies - and it was hard to sleep - and I regret not changing hotels after arriving. Now about the activities. On the first night (a Friday) we witnessed a prostitute yelling at some guy in the parking lot at about 9pm when we got back to the hotel. Then another prostitute arguing with a taxi driver about 20 minutes later. Lots of sketchy people hanging around the hotel. At 12 am some guy was on his cell phone outside my door making very loud calls on his phone - the first to his dealer looking for him to come down to sell him some coke, and the second to some woman who we was trying to convince to come down to "party". This went on for over an hour. On the second night there I witnessed another prostitute being dropped off by taxi (who looked like she was zonked out on drugs) and going into one of the rooms next to mine, more sketchy people driving into the parking lot or hanging out in the parking lot. Lot's a yelling and "Whooooo" coming from somewhere (neighbouring rooms, parking lot?) until about 2:30 in the morning. Some guy in a car in the parking lot was also blasting club music with a massive low end bass for about 15 minutes around midnight. While the price was around $75, I should have just paid more for a room at a different hotel.

Great view - as it faces the pier and park. But actually the food is really good here.

Awesome facility. Creative rooms that are perfect for bands set on serious rehearsal sessions. Fantastic equipment. Friendly and helpful staff. Probably the best rehearsal studio I've seen (and I've seen a lot). SoundHouse should look at opening more locations in other cities. Overall, I had an excellent experience here.

One of the few coffee shops in the Sidney area where there is space to sit down and relax.
