Welcome to Salt Spring!
Salt Spring Island is the largest of the southern Gulf Islands of British Columbia, nestled between the mainland and Vancouver Island. Known for its eclectic and vibrant artisan community, it has a population of around 10,600, which doubles in the summer months. The island’s 185 square km landscape includes steep, rocky bluffs, sandy beaches, dense rain forests, idyllic orchards and vineyards, majestic mountains, and pristine lakes. It is breathtaking.
The climate is mild and the vibe is relaxed. Salt Spring offers a hospital, cinema, pool, several schools (including a high school), amazing bakeries and restaurants, spas, yoga and fitness centres, art, drama and dance classes, open-mic battles, fiddle camps, golf courses, hiking trails, incredible boating, and the famous Saturday market. There is something for everyone! Taste our island's farm-fresh cheeses, jams and jellies. Purchase organic veggies from the produce stands. Discover deliciously scented soaps, beautiful pottery, paintings, jewelry and textiles, and dance to live music!
Salt Spring lifts your spirit and awakens all your senses. Real estate opportunities include acreages, farms, houses, condos, and waterfront homes.
"And the people stayed home. And read books, and listened, and rested, and exercised, and made art, and played games, and learned new ways of being, and were still. And listened more deeply. Some meditated, some prayed, some danced. Some met their shadows. And the people began to think differently.
And the people healed. And, in the absence of people living in ignorant, dangerous, mindless, and heartless ways, the earth began to heal.
And when the danger passed, and the people joined together again, they grieved their losses, and made new choices, and dreamed new images, and created new ways to live and heal the earth fully, as they had been healed."

We live in strange times and Real Estate on Salt Spring Island is not immune to the effects of COVID-19. Real Estate services have been deemed essential by the Province of British Columbia, however, we have to operate with greater care.
My main role is that of a Buyer’s Agent. I work directly for people looking to purchase Real Estate and guide you every step of the way. You are still able to come and view property here on Salt Spring Island, place an offer on a property of interest, do your due diligence in investigating the property and financing options, and ultimately purchase property and move in. People are still placing their properties up for sale. Properties are still selling. If you are thinking of making a move now, please feel free to give me a call at 250-221-0115 or send me an email and we can discuss how to get started.
"We know we were very demanding, not only looking for the right house to call home but also finding the perfect location for our business. But Heidi went above and beyond for us. She is very passionate, professional, and super smart but the quality we admired most is her knowledge of, and her responsiveness to, the fast-moving market on Salt Spring Island. Because of her commitment and full-time support, we would highly recommend Heidi, if you are searching for real estate or selling your property."
