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.

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!

FullSizeRender (7)Hello, my name is Colleen and I’m a Nelson born and raised psychic. Growing up in the healing and high vibration area of the Kootenays has had a major impact on the unfolding of my gifts. All my life I’ve been blessed with sight, which has only been enhanced by the magic of the mountains, waters, and forests of this area. Being one of the most bio-diverse regions in the world, my interest in herbal medicine is always growing and being refined.FullSizeRender (19)

As a clairvoyant empath, I use my natural psychic abilities to offer authentic, yet deep and compassionate tarot readings. My intuition allows me to read auras and I’m also a Certified Angel Card Reader. Your in person appointment includes palm readings and psychometry, which is the psychic ability to read an object or your hand simply by touch. I also offer cupping and Reiki, as I’m a Traditional Usui Reiki II Practitioner.FullSizeRenmder (18)

Inspired to help others, I created a YouTube channel called Bandia Blooms where I offer monthly zodiac sign readings. I’m available in Nelson and it’s surrounding areas, also by phone and for parties! I’m happy to provide confidential readings to people from all spiritual paths and lifestyles. My clients walk away feeling uplifted and inspired, with a sense of empowerment and peace. It is my wish to provide this for you. Call me for clarity.preview

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.

Every time you enter the “Old Church Hall”, you experience a piece of Nelson history. This quaint white and blue-trimmed church, dating back to 1906, exudes the charm of a bygone era.

If you are looking for a venue that can accommodate up to 110 people, come and take a look. You will find it’s the ideal place for your event, whether a wedding reception, an intimate concert, a workshop or a special birthday party.

Resolution Place business card

 Susan Kurtz of Resolution Place has been offering sound legal solutions to the residents of the Kootenays for 22 years, including;

 

 

· Wills and Estate
· Separation Agreements
· Property Division
· No Court Divorce
· Mediation
· Collaborative Law

Conflict is a fact of life. Studies show conflict is a necessary impetus to change and evolution. 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.

The court system we use today has been developed on the foundation of the Magna Carta, the Great Charter of Rights and Freedoms, which was signed almost 1000 years ago. Our civil court system involves having a judge determine who is “right” and who is “wrong”, or where fault is to be attributed. That’s why courts have judges – to judge. However, many of our modern day legal conflicts do not require a finding of who is right and who is wrong. For instance, in separation and divorce, is there really a “right” way to cut up the family pie? And most parents would agree that there is no one “right” parenting plan. Similarly, in business, when a conflict arises between partners, is it truly helpful to spend a lot of time and money trying to prove the other partner at fault?

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 or collaborative law 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.Resolution Place Banner (1)
