Pemberton Holmes Ltd. has been in business serving the Vancouver Island area since 1887 helping people with their Real Estate needs. Much of Vancouver Island is now serviced with Homes For Sale in areas such as Victoria, Sidney, Saanich, Esquimalt, Colwood, View Royal, Oak Bay, Cordova Bay, Brentwood Bay, Saanichton, Langford, Metchosin, West Shore, Sooke, Mill Bay, Cobble Hill, Cowichan Bay, Shawnigan Lake, Duncan, Cowichan Valley, Chemainus, Crofton, Ladysmith, Lake Cowichan, Salt Spring Island, as well as Denman and Hornby Islands.
I now live on a rural property in the mid-Vancouver Island area but I was very fortunate to spend my childhood and teen years in Victoria during the 50's and 60's when children could safely play in a 20 acre Garry Oak meadow unsupervised by adults. Later on, for several years, I rode horses from a family friend's farm, on trails through what is now Broadmead, on the beach in Cordova Bay and over Mt Doug, to events at the Carley's Riding Academy near the University of Victoria.
When I finished high school I went to France as an "au pair" girl to learn French. I graduated from UVIC with a BA in French and English; my studies were financed by my work in the summers as a Timber Cruiser for the B.C. Forest Service. After completing a year of teacher training, I travelled to the Comoro Islands, Africa, to work as a volunteer teacher for two years.
Since my return to Canada my work activities have included starting a horse & carriage company on Salt Spring Island, raising & training heritage Canadian horses and teaching Distance Education & French Immersion. The highlight of my work life so far is having raised two wonderful sons.
My present interests include organic gardening, promoting local food, horses, my dog, reading, writing, and protecting our precious natural environment. During the summer time I enjoy ocean swimming near Ladysmith as well as walking outdoors all year round. I dislike snow and feel very lucky to not be subjected to it very often!
I feel that two of my main roles as a real estate professional are helping people through change and writing excellent contracts which legally protect my clients. Due to my years of professional experience and extensive knowledge of the Vancouver Island area, I can assist buyers and sellers of rural properties or city homes from Victoria all the way to Qualicum Beach. I also understand the needs not only of couples and families, but also of independent men and women.
Please allow me to introduce you to the MAGIC of Vancouver Island!
