Jaime has lived on Pender Island since 2001 and absolutely loves it! Being an outdoor enthusiast she knows the geopgraphy of Pender Island like the back of her hand. She is married to a registered Architect and together, they love talking about property and the land that is involved. She is detail oriented and a creative quick thinker who loves working with and helping people. Jaime will become a fast comfortable friend and advocate on your journey through your real estate dealings.
Already in 2021 Jaime has sold 18 properties, representing both Buyers and Sellers. This year continues to bring a lot of Buyers to Pender, with not a lot of inventory. That means that properties are selling fast, often with multiple, competing offers and properties being sold for over list price. Jaime is the Realtor you want by your side, she is easy to reach and quick to communicate and that is what you want in a Realtor in this sort of busy market.
"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. I have participated in the whole community vaccination, as I know it is going to help keep my family, my clients and our world safer."
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 helped us navigate a lot of challenges and made the whole process actually enjoyable. If you’re looking to buy or sell and seeking representation, stop looking and place your trust in 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".

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.

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!
