DISCOVERY ISLANDS REALTOR® & Coastal Property Specialist

My home is Cortes Island. My business is Real Estate. 

Sotheby’s International Realty Canada


I focus my real estate practice on connection to place and people. I enjoy sharing my local knowledge with people that are interested in investing both their hearts and financial capital in these unique island communities.

Although I am based on Cortes Island I am able to provide services to people interested in remote, boat access property. Locations serviced include Quadra Island, Maurelle, Read, additional Discovery Islands, Hernando Island and Coastal property on the BC mainland, from Lund, BC north to Phillips Arm. I am able to list properties across any MLS platform, including VIVA and the Powell River Board.

Working with Sotheby’s affords my real estate practice exceptional resources which I am able to pass along to my clients. The Sotheby’s brand emphasizes that “Luxury is an experience, not a price point.” I would like to assure anyone considering working with me that my real estate practice fully embodies this ethos.

My local expertise and physical presence in the Discovery Islands will allow you the most easeful purchasing or selling process available. Should you be interested in working with me, or learning more, please reach out.

Discovery Islands & Desolation Sound

Discovery Islands

The real estate market here on Cortes and in the Discovery Islands is a unique one. As fibre internet is placed (currently underway) and becomes functional over the next few years I imagine continued changes will come to our sleepy, watery corner of the Canadian West coast. 

My decision to become a REALTOR® is one not taken lightly or made quickly. My hope is to establish a long term niche for myself on my island home. 

Cortes Island is located within the traditional territories of the toq qaymɩxʷ (Klahoose), ɬəʔamɛn qaymɩxʷ (Tla’amin), and ʔop qaymɩxʷ (Homalco) Nations, whose ancestors have inhabited these lands since time immemorial. 


I have loved houses since I was a young girl. I grew up in a 1900s four square farmhouse in the rolling hills of Maryland. I watched my mother restore our home over the course of 20 years. I marvelled at the nooks and crannies inside of the built in cabinets placed below the light filled bay windows in the dining room. I treasured the robin’s egg coloured wooden window shutters and the brightly coloured rhododendron flowers that blanketed the side of the covered front porch in springtime.

Like many children of the 80s’ I collaged, lots. With National Geographic and Southern Living as my only magazines to work from I imagined landscapes and living spaces, possible futures. I collected paint chips from the local hardware store and wallpaper samples from the big binders my mother would borrow during her various remodel projects. 

Fast forward almost 20 years and I am a mother of four living in an old wooden house with its own nooks, crannies, and (lots) of fixer projects. I have found my home here, on the opposite coast from my place of origin. I still love houses and established heritage landscaping. And although I love modern design and Danish modern furniture I wouldn’t trade my lakefront cottage for anywhere else on the planet. As a REALTOR® I hope to help people find, or pass on to the next generation, their home
