Growing up in Victoria, then living in New Zealand for over 8 years as a young adult and then moving back to the Island and back to her Canadian roots, Jill is an Islander through and through! Jill and her young family moved to Nanaimo in 1980 and Jill started in her Real Estate career in February 1990. Life brought opportunity for change in 1998 and always enjoying a smaller community, Jill moved to Ladysmith where she has continued on with her Real Estate career ever since. February 2019, will be the start of her 30th year in Real Estate. This is something she is very proud of. Being receptive to change and working with the ebb and flow of the market are opportunities that Jill takes in her stride.

Moving to the Central Island has it’s benefits! Lower prices are great, but lower prices and Vancouver Island University, 2 ferry terminals to Vancouver, largest growing Airport in Canada, with flights to Vancouver, Calgary and inaugural flights to Toronto this year, as well as super friendly communities…well, the sky is the limit!
