Pemberton Holmes

Moving From There to Here, in Paradise

As we go about our days in the perfection of British Columbia’s beauty and our Island community, it’s easy to forget about the stresses of moving. We come and go through life’s phases, even if we  don’t move far. For some, it’s time to downsize. Others are moving to retire. For many, it’s a chance to live in a home of their own.

For more than 135 years, one Island real estate company has helped smooth the transitions. Pemberton Holmes is a name Vancouver Island recognizes. It’s hard to find a piece of land that hasn’t had a Pemberton agent involved in bringing the beauty of our surroundings to individual families and businesses.

Affordability & Outdoor Beauty in the Perfect Place to Live

Parksville Downtown’s Pemberton Holmes location is owned by managing broker, Jason Ridout. We spoke with him recently about the achievements of his team of community-oriented agents. Ridout told us, “Parksville might be the most desirable post-retirement community on Vancouver Island. And young professionals and families are moving from areas on the Mainland where affordability is out-of-the-question. Our Pemberton Holmes’ agents are part of the community. We know that you don’t have to choose between having a home, having a family, and enjoying the natural beauty of our beaches and forests.”

Pemberton Holmes has fifteen offices and 300 realtors across Vancouver Island. The 7th generation of the founding partners is now part of the business, so you know that quality is built into the core of Pemberton Holmes’ service.

Ridout explained, “I partnered with Mike Holmes and the Pemberton Holmes knowledge base because professionalism, agent support, and teamwork are core values. We are proud of our agents’
commitment to their clients, and we know it’s reinforced because they live in the communities they serve.”

Community Partners for Growth & Movement that Brings Life

“When there’s an event in Parksville, we gather our team to get involved. We are neighbours. Our agents have life-long relationships with clients who’ve bought or sold a home. Many times, our agents help with a compassionate hand during a move that might have otherwise been stressful,” Ridout said.

“We have world class beaches in Parksville and it’s such a joy to help a young family, or a retiree moving to the West coast, to find their perfect home. Parksville has so much within a walkable distance. I can’t imagine a better community than the one my family has chosen. We have it all here — the infrastructure to support business and remote work, plus good schools and incomparable beauty on our doorstep.”

Friends & Neighbours for the Moves of Your Life

Whether you’re ready to downsize on ‘Island time’ or looking to get your family into a home with a yard, Pemberton Holmes’ Parksville office knows how to help. Plan to stop in and meet the agents at their Parksville Downtown location, next door to Memorial Plaza.
