Your 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.
