Hi! I'm Ainsley, an entrepreneur, outdoor enthusiast, community connector & real estate agent all wrapped up in one.
Being born and raised in Victoria B.C., I have a deep appreciation for the neighbourhoods, trails, attractions, businesses and people that this incredible city has to offer. This is why I tend to attract clients who embrace Victoria's famous Urban Active Lifestyle. With my passion for community connections and real estate paired with my energetic and ambitious approach, I am driven to see my clients succeed in all their homeownership and real estate investment goals.
I have always had an incredible urge to get out and see as much of this big beautiful world as possible which led me to an adventurous career of living and working on board some of the worlds most exclusive superyachts for nearly 15 years. While this career brought extraordinary travel opportunities, it also taught me a strong work ethic, attention to detail, a solution-oriented mindset, and an exceptional standard of customer service. Living life on board a mega yacht with approximately 20 other crew members was quite the experience. There was always something exciting going on and somewhere new to explore, that is in between a lot of long hours and some rough seas! Upon returning back to Vancouver Island after being away for a number of years it was the interactions I had with friends, family, and many small businesses and their owners that truly made me feel like I was finally home on solid ground again. Seeking connection to my community and it's incredible members is actually what led me into my career as a real estate professional.
My enthusiasm for real estate began 10 years ago when my partner Richard and I purchased our first investment property and part-time home in Tamarindo, Costa Rica. It was an investment I do not regret for a second and I learned a lot in the process of investing in a different country! Even though we love to travel back and forth when time permits, I am so grateful to officially grounded here in Canada and I am ready to explore the wonderful real estate investment opportunities British Columbia has to offer. I truly appreciate that when it comes to real estate there can sometimes be emotional decisions that need to be made and that is why I am honoured to help my clients work through difficult decisions every day.
When I am not working, you can find me jogging through Beacon Hill Park and along Dallas Road, climbing Mt. Doug, playing my guitar or practising yoga. As an explorer by heart and a connector by nature, I feel my success as a real estate agent stems from my ability to connect with my client's and my strong motivation for to connect them with the right communities and properties that best match their goals and desires.
When working together to reach your unique real estate goals, you can expect a high level of integrity, personable nature and low-pressure approach from the way that I work. My business was born out of a love for building relationships. You are what makes doing what I do worthwhile. Buying a home is a journey and I would love to be a part of your story.
I look forward to officially meeting you!
