About the Qualicum Beach Office
Right in the heart of downtown Qualicum Beach on First Avenue is where you’ll find our 460 Realty office. On the sheltered east coast of Vancouver Island, the Town of Qualicum Beach is an active seaside community of urban professionals, families with young children and retirees who have chosen to live here for a quality of life and the region's natural environment. With a population of 9,300 and growing, this community is known as not only a vacation destination, but a great area to place your roots. The neighbouring communities of Nanoose Bay, Parksville, Coombs, Errington, Hilliers, French Creek, Bowser, Deep Bay and Qualicum Bay make up the remainder of the “Oceanside” region.
People love the ability to ‘choose their own adventure’ when living in the Oceanside area. They can hike to a waterfall, explore a large sandy beach, mountain bike back country trails, see an old-growth forest, shop local businesses, and dine locally all in the same day. The Parksville & Qualicum Beach area allows you to escape the crush of deadlines, traffic jams and overcrowded spaces, and to step back in time a little. Another excellent place to call ‘home’.
Experience, integrity and communication are the key factors to Sue’s ongoing success in the business of helping people buy and sell real estate in the Parksville-Qualicum Beach area. Whether purchasing your first home or property, buying or selling an investment property, or selling your home in order to find that perfect new home and lifestyle to enjoy your retirement years, she will put these skills to work for you.
Sue’s experience dates back to 2006, when as a newly licensed realtor, she joined Coast Realty Group in Parksville. After 11 years in the business, she has gained a wealth of knowledge. Sue has worked through busy markets as well as some very challenging markets, one that saw board membership drop from over 210 realtors in Parksville-Qualicum Beach to approximately 150. Only those able to combine a strong work ethic, with the ability to change and adapt to challenging times and new technologies can survive and flourish in today’s market. As a high profile, progressive independent company, 460 Realty’s fast growth and market share provides worldwide recognition and excellent exposure for both staff and clients.
Sue believes that communication is the cornerstone of business and in order to provide a superior level of service to her clients, they must be kept well informed on an ongoing basis. Sue’s keen aptitude recognizes that the fine art of negotiation requires a strong bargaining position which is necessary to achieve her client’s goals and interests. Sue is passionate about doing the best job for her clients and recognizes that it’s not just about selling or buying a home, it’s usually a life-style change for many.
Over the years, Sue has been active in the community in volunteer positions including Oceanside Minor Hockey, Oceanside Minor Lacrosse and has been an avid supporter for the Daffodil Campaign for the Canadian Cancer Society and Heart & Stroke Foundations annual Big Bike fundraiser. She also partnered with BC Lung Association to raise awareness of their Golf Privilege Book as one of their main annual fundraisers. She also proudly sponsors the Qualicum & District Curling Club.
In her spare time, Sue loves to spend time with friends and family. She’s raised two sons in the Oceanside area, now young adults with their own careers, one an electrician, the other a musician. Sue also enjoys golf, downhill skiing, snowshoeing, curling, biking and travel. Other pursuits include cooking, gardening, painting, playing cards and music.
