Jaime has lived on Pender Island since 2002 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.
In 2020 Jaime has sold 15 properties so far, representing both Buyers and Sellers. This year has brought tons of buyers to Pender, with not a lot of inventory. That means that properties have sold 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.
"Jaime provided prompt and insightful help finding and buying our waterfront home on Pender Island. She knows the market and gives great advice. We are glad we worked with her. We recommend her to anyone looking for a Gulf Island property."

"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!
