232 097Your Kootenay Lifestyle Specialists

Welcome to Nelson and the surrounding area. My name is Kevin and I have lived in Nelson all of my life. My wife, and business partner, Layla and I have been working as realtors for the past nine years but my family has been in the business for over 40 and so it has always been a part of my life. We both have a deep love for the Kootenays and understand the draw for people to want to make this area their home. With the diverse community and the abundance of mountain culture we can’t imagine a better place to be. I have always had a passion for the mountains and love to ski, mountain bike, hike, camp and fish. I am also a certified ski guide and a professional with the Canadian Avalanche Association. I would have to say that I see similarities with the skill sets needed for both professions. Communication is a must, as well as risk management and mastering the art of multitasking under pressure. Layla and I have been together for over 20 years and have two children. We work very well together and are an efficient team. We pride ourselves on quality customer service and find that most of our business comes from word of mouth. We have consistently been one of the top producers in Nelson and I am the recipient of the Coldwell Banker International Diamond Society award for production achievement four times. We believe strongly in the idea of helping people. Selling and/or buying is a huge, and sometimes emotional, undertaking and we are here to help you though the process. When we work with clients we don’t think of it as a onetime thing. It is a relationship that we hope to continue for a lifetime. We have met some amazing people over the years. Some of whom have become very dear to us.  If you have any questions feel free to contact us.

Nestled in the heart of the West Kootenays, the homebased studio is located in the Fairview area of Nelson, B.C., and is owned and operated by Karyn Lawson, R.M.T. Karyn graduated the Massage Therapy program of the Okanagan Valley College of Massage Therapy in 1999. She’s a member of the Massage Therapists Association of B.C. and is registered with the College of Massage Therapists of B.C.

After a thriving 14 year practice in Salmo and Ymir, B.C. Karyn has joined the community of Nelson providing service to new clients and dedicated clients from Nelson and surrounding rural areas. She has worked along side other healthcare providers including acupuncturists and chiropractors and currently offers her services on Wednesday’s along side Kevin McKenzie at Community Chiropractics.

The name, Inner Vision, was inspired by the way that Karyn, being totally blind, uses her “inner vision” to help facilitate health and wellness for her clients. Her work employs a variety of modalities including deep tissue work, fascial release, instrument assisted soft tissue mobilization, trigger point therapy, frictioning and stripping techniques and relaxation massage for over all stress reduction and holistic wellbeing.  Karyn specializes in deeper tissue massage treatments but will customize therapy and pressure depending on each individual need.

Massage Therapy can be used to treat a wide variety of conditions –  Karyn works with youth, seniors and everyone in between. She’s skilled in working with maternity and infant massage and is also registered with ICBC and WCB for insurance coverages.

The Inner Vision approach to health care is a holistic one, adapting each treatment to suit the specific needs of each client.  Karyn creates a safe and comfortable environment for clients to explore all of these areas within themselves. All treatments are conducted in a professional environment and are completely confidential.

Besides being effective in the treatment of many conditions, Massage Therapy is also good preventative medicine. A safe and nurturing drug free therapy, regular massage can add to anyone’s sense of well being.

 

Appointments by phone or email. Taking new clients. Specializing in deep tissue therapy.

jeffYour Community Real Estate Agent in Nelson BC.

It didn’t take long for Jeff and his family to decide that Nelson was a special place when they rolled through town in 2011. It was a stunning August day and a few hours spent exploring local businesses on Baker Street, viewing houses in Uphill, and playing at Lakeside Park was all it took to convince them that Nelson was that perfect place to call home. Coming from a non-profit and media background, Jeff has deep roots in BC’s sustainable agriculture community; working all along the food chain from farm and retail to distribution and public relations. Much of his time in Vancouver was spent with FarmFolkCityFolk Society, working to build a just and sustainable food system in BC. His writing, also mostly focused on food and agriculture, has been featured in regional, national and international publications including The Tyee, BC Business, The Walrus and TreeHugger.

Jeff is Nelson’s top listing and selling real estate agent in Nelson since the beginning of 2015* and is focused on quality service and giving back to the community. His goal for 2016 is to raise $12,500 for the local community by donating at least 5% of every real estate commission to a charitable organization of his client’s choice. Giving back is his way of investing in the community that he and his family call home.  

Get in touch if you’re buying or selling in Nelson and help build our community!

IMG_0137Helen Kissinger, Personal Trainer, I work with many people who wish to improve upon their health and lifestyle. The strategy that I use is to assess a client’s health status based on simple testing of health markers, to create a base level from which to create a healthy living plan. I like a challenge and I like working with people who are challenging because when I help them realize a physical goal, they are empowered, thankful, and eager to try new things. I have been successful in helping many people because of my approach to their fitness goals and that coupled with years of hands on experience; I deliver programs that can get people moving. I have a tremendous amount of patience and great active listening skills so I am able to connect well with most people. Many people who know me and have worked with me are impressed with my ability to observe movement and then correct and teach the subtle movement required for functional movement.

IMG_0424If you need help to get started on a fitness plan and stay the course, contact Renew Personal Training in the “Old Church Hall”.
The “Old Church Hall” is also available for rent evenings and weekends.

Resolution Place – Family Law Solutions – Lawyers and Mediators

Susan Kurtz of Resolution Place has been offering sound legal solutions to the residents of the Kootenays for 25 years, including;

Specializing in Family Law, including:Resolution Place business card
· Wills and Estate
· Separation Agreements
· Property Division
· No Court Divorce
· Mediation
· Collaborative Law

 

Conflict is a fact of life.  Evolution is dependent on conflict.  Conflict causes change.  If we interact with others, there are going to be times when our interests collide with those of someone else. Conflict might arise over the location of a boundary, about the interpretation of a term of an agreement, in business or the work place, or between family members. Whenever opposing legal interests arise, most of us would like a fair, relatively inexpensive and quick way to resolve the issue.

 

Resolution Place Banner (1)Providing a fair, less expensive, out of court and quicker solution to legal disputes is what Resolution Place is all about. The terms of the agreement reached by the parties through negotiation, mediation, collaborative law or arbitration are formalized in writing, and the Written Agreement is often filed at a court registry, so that the Written Agreement can take on the force and effect as if a court had ordered the terms.

 

At Resolution Place, you can learn how these ways of resolving disputes might best apply to your situation. Resolution Place offers an initial consultation for $300 (including tax) where you can meet with a lawyer to explore your options and look at the costs and time associated with each option.
