In the past Lorne used to cover the  mid-Vancouver Island areas for real estate.  Now with additional partners, Lorne covers the area from Victoria to North Island.  We are prepared to help you be where you want to be.

Vancouver Island is often referred to as the Hawaii of Canada.  The temperatures are moderate–mild in the winter and not too hot in the summer.  There is a natural breeze over the island most of the year so there are not too many humid days.   When it is sunny–much of the summer and often a month or so in December and January–it is arguably one of the most beautiful places on the planet.

Victoria is a world class city attracting folks from all over the globe.  Moving northward over the Malahat the traveller quickly finds a unique and super – natural part of British Columbia.  The mid and north island are stunningly beautiful.

Hiking, golfing, skiing, fishing, working and playing are all part of the Vancouver Island lifestyle.  Let’s get in touch to find a property and home that suits your particular needs.
