A Different Approach! While most people choose a career in real estate, Catherine went into real estate because of a special brokerage. Catherine has been a social media and internet marketing consultant for medium and small size businesses for the last 10 years. She LOVED her work, her clients, and the lifestyle. A couple of years ago, she started working with Aileen Eakins, a local real estate professional: creating websites and marketing campaigns for Luxury Houses Victoria. While the experience was interesting, when Aileen joined Engel & Voelker's Vancouver Island brokerage, Catherine was incredibly impressed with the calibre of the company; it's philosophy and marketing support. When Catherine first came to Victoria 20 years ago, she never thought she would settle here, let alone become a realtor! Over the years she has grown to love Victoria and Vancouver Island; the vibrant art and food culture, micro farming and interesting neighborhoods. So much to see, so much to discover! What most people know about Victoria is the Inner Harbour, the Empress and Government Street. Behind the scenes, there are countless neighborhoods with their own vibes and spirit waiting to be discovered. Today Victoria is one of the most desirable cities in the world. Being a growing city, it has become a bit of a real estate maze for anyone trying to find the perfect home here. This is where Catherine comes in! As a South Island afficianado, if you are looking at downsizing or upsizing your home, Catherine will help you find the perfect home to start a new chapter in your life.
