Gaylene has always been on the move. Owning her own real estate at a very young age, early adulthood included building homes with her little children in tow, until deciding Victoria was the place to settle and raise her family.
In 1992 Gaylene successfully completed UBC Sauders School of Business-Real Estate Division and obtained her “License to Provide Trading and Rental Property Management Services”. It was time to expand her experience in real estate from building homes and began her career as a licensed Real Estate Professional with Remax Camosun in Victoria B.C. After approximately 14 very successful years in mainly single family residential homes sales, she expanded further into major luxury multi - family developments. This took her to working with the top Developers and Marketing Agencies both on the Mainland and Vancouver Island.
When she had opportunity, Gaylene’s natural curiosity of diverse cultures and beautiful places has taken her around the world in travel. Thus taking every opportunity to experience & understand different ways of life and cultures, all the while viewing many places in the world. Having been born and raised on Vancouver Island, Gaylene felt it import to experience what else was out there, both for herself and for her children. The more she saw, the more she realized, the best part…. "was coming home”, to one of, if not "the“ most beautiful place in the world!
With the rise and fall of the real estate industry over the years, Gaylene has diverse experience in all markets, clientele and situations. From the first time buyers to the sophisticated elite; the empty nesters to seniors, and estates sales. Her ability to listen to a client's needs, anticipate their future ones, combined with her experience, confidence, natural approach & attitude, together with her sensibility, make finding the right home a comfortable and confident experience.
Gaylene celebrates nearly 30 years of Award Winning Real Estate Sales with VREB in Victoria and Vancouver Island British Columbia.
Today, when not assisting clients, Gaylene enjoys spending time with her very young grandchildren, all running barefoot at her cottage at Lake Cowichan. Gaylene, her two, now adult children, and their families, come together at every opportunity to enjoy the simplicity and diversity of the lakes, beaches, ocean, and mountains. Together, they carry on their Legacy of Vancouver Island.
Gaylene will be happy to assist you to begin yours...
