"I'm happy to set you up on a market watch, where my automated system sends you listings the minute they hit the market. But, if you're considering selling, that's a different process all together. I can help you plan your move, clean up your home and prepare for the sale of your home. I have a team of cleaners and de-clutterers who are happy to help sellers prepare. Selling a home is very stressful. I will make it easier. If you would like to meet for a preliminary meeting about selling your home, please don't hesitiate to call me. We can meet confidentially at your home, or where ever you'd like."
We loved working with Jaime. We had been looking for a very specific place for years, and Jaime was very patient with us, and attentive to our needs. Best of all, we never felt any effort to pressure a sale. Jamie only presented information about the property, both positive and negative, and offered her well-informed opinion about the property, price, and Pender Island. Jaime is laid back, knowledgeable, attentive, and easy to communicate with. Not only would I highly recommend Jaime as a realtor, I would consider her a new friend.
We chose our realtor, Jaime MacLean, based on client’s testimonials from both buyers, sellers and friends. Jamie is congenial, knowledgeable, and very generous with her time. She patiently walked us through all the considerations when selling property in BC. As the property was co-owned by my sister in California, Jaime navigated all the legal hurdles and communicated progress to both sisters on a regular basis. She was also the realtor for my eldest sister, Dana, who owns the property next door and, being undeveloped, has always served as an extension to our property. Her property is now completely covered in tall, dense and vicious blackberry bushes. I mentioned this to Jaime one morning, and a short time later, she arrived at my sister’s property completely enclosed in safety gear and carrying a powerful industrial-strength weed eater. She literally slashed her way through 80 feet of dense blackberry thickets until she reached the property line. Prospective buyers can now follow the path through the property from one end to the other, admiring the wild environment in the process.
Jaime’s expertise made the selling process a relaxed, stress-free experience. She worked diligently to find an appropriate buyer for our beautiful property that had been in the family for over forty years. Her friendly, calm demeanor made the entire process much less stressful. Thank-you, Jaime!

We can't imagine a better realtor working for you than Jaime. She cares to know what you searching for. She is fully invested in your dream. Jaime goes that extra step and shares her vast knowledge of the the island and wonderful Pender community. Thank you Jaime, we could not have done it without you.

My name is Jill Ballam and I first approached Jaime MacLean in 2019 when we we’re interested in buying land suitable for a house. Jaime chose the property that we would then buy based on her attention to what our preferences were. It was a given that we would deal with Jaime when we later came to sell. The process from start to finish was straight forward, clearly explained and stress free. Jaime brings to the table an easy, comfortable style and a truly delightful personality!

As a first time property buyer during the 2020-2021 hot housing market, I really appreciated working with Jaime MacLean on Pender. Jaime worked tirelessly for several months with me, even though there was no financial compensation for her efforts during that time. All throughout, Jaime provided excellent feedback, listened to my concerns, paid attention to my must-haves and budget, and never showed any frustration nor discounted my wariness. Even after purchasing my first property, Jaime continues to provide valuable follow-up feedback. Jaime's integrity, candor, patience, and kindness are unmatched and she's a true professional.

This is to give a review on our interaction with Jaime Maclean on the sale of our Property in Magic Lakes Estate on N. Pender Isl. " Jaime MacLean was our realtor that we chose from reviews we read on realtors on Pender Island. She was everything we were hoping to find in a Realtor. We had owned the land for a very long time and decided it was time to sell. Jamie was very personable and attentive to our needs. She was professional, efficient, reliable and knowledgeable to it all the aspects of presenting and selling the property. Within a week of listing she was able to sell our property for more than we were asking. We were very pleased! I would highly recommend her. Thank you very much, Jaime!

What I appreciated most about Jaime's approach as our sellers' agent was how calm she kept the whole process. She was patient, kind, helpful, and easy to work with throughout. Jaime has a good understanding of both the market and the emotional roller coaster that sellers go through. When we were finally ready to list, she was respectful of our needs and ensured that the sale went smoothly. Thank you, Jaime!

She won’t let you down. We were blown away.”

We are first time home buyers and were very happy to have the help and expertise of Jaime MacLean. She was very patient and took the time to explain the procedures and what steps we would need to take next from start to finish. Her response time was very quick and she was able to refer us to many people/contractors on the island. We would highly recommend her to anyone searching on Pender Island!

"My husband and I had the good fortune of having Jaime MacLean@ Dockside Realty as our realtor when we purchased our dream home on Pender. Jaime was so professional, prompt at all times, immediately responding to our many queries, and those of our lawyer and banker, etc. She cared about our wishes, likes and dislikes and was completely honest, informing us, for example, of details about the new build across the street, among other things. Jaime has a delightful personality and is so easy to talk to! We would recommend her in a heartbeat!"

"We were recommended Jaime by our Vancouver Realtor, once we had decided that Pender was the island we wanted to head to. Jaime was friendly and welcoming from the outset, taking time to find out about us, our family, what our hobbies are, so she could set us up with the right properties. She was patient and understanding when we kept changing our minds about we wanted property wise (older property needing overhaul / newer already reno'd property / in land / ocean view/ 2 beds / 3 beds/ 3 beds etc) and kept up our confidence when we thought all was lost and we’d never find what we actually wanted. She has a great knowledge of the island, CRD, Tax, water services etc plus all the important stuff you need to know when you move to a new place, like who delivers and how often. Thanks Jaime, for making our purchase simple and efficient, now we can enjoy Island Life :) "

"Jaime found us the BEST property on Pender Island. We initially contacted Jaime because of her athletic lifestyle and familiarity with the trails and outdoor activities on Pender. We wanted an escape from the busyness of urban living and to deeply enjoy the beautiful, natural environment of the island. While impressing us with the numerous opportunities available on Pender, she amazed us with her friendliness, accessibility, timeliness and reliability. She is both patient and assertive when necessary. Her hard work paid off and we are delighted with our new home. Without hesitation, I strongly recommend Jaime as your real estate agent on Pender Island".
Michael & Leigh, Vancouver May 2018
Our introduction to Pender Island started at the farmers' market where we met Jaime. Purchasing a home, any home is an emotional decision, let alone a big one. Jaime was very attentive and grounded with her advice. She focused on the information that would impact our decision and it was great knowing that Jaime was always "at the bat" ready to negotiate in her amenable, yet firm style. Jaime's demeanour made us feel that she was always looking after our best interest. She even took our parents, with her 4-year old in tow, around the property, AND on possession date, she picked us up from the ferry and drove us and celebrated the BIG day! This is how a home purchase should be.
Robert and Jai September 2017
Jaime took me through the sale of my home with remarkable calm, poise and reassurance. She went beyond the call duty from start to finish. She is a gifted communicator and business person and I would highly recommend her for anyone who wants to sell or buy a home; particularly if they are looking for that intangible special touch!

We had been searching the Gulf Islands for a vacation property and were unable to find anything suitable. We had made many futile trips from the mainland to look at properties which were simply not what we had asked to see. When we met Jaime, we were pleased to find that she did not show us properties that she wanted to sell, but rather showed us properties that fell into our criteria. When we saw the property we wanted to purchase on Pender, we decided we would also be interested in purchasing the adjoining lot. Jamie figured it all out with both sets of owners and negotiated a great deal for us. It was great to deal with an agent that kept our best interests in mind!
