A Tour Through Sooke’s Sunriver Estates Subdivision [Video]

Check out this video I shot the other day of a drive through Sun River Estates in Sooke. It’s a little shakey at times – sorry – but will give you a good idea of what the neighbourhood looks like, and I also provide some information about the various amenities in Sunriver, the prices, sizes, and features of the homes and lots.

If you’re reading this through a feed reader or via e-mail subscription, you may need to click the title of this post to view the video.

As always, if you have any questions about selling or buying a home (new or resale) in Sun River Estates, please give me a call at 250-885-0512, email me, or fill in my contact form – I will help you promptly.

Looking for an interesting dining experience? Join local Sooke chef extraordinaire Kari Osselton and Captain Ralph for a 3-4 hour dinner cruise departing from Sooke on July 25, 2009 at 5:00.

Step aboard ROLANO, an 80-foot long vessel which holds the distinction as the only floating B&B approved by Tourism British Columbia. Enjoy the sights and sounds of the harbour as you dine on fresh sushi prepared by Kari. The cost is $100 per person or $175 per couple and reservations must be made at 250-744-4908.

Rolano

ROLANO is also the site of Sooke’s Sushi on the Sea, which serves sushi in an intimate setting when she is tied to the wharf on the weekends. Kari Osselton also runs Kari’s Catering and has done a spectacular job for several of our real estate office functions. Her latest endeavour is Souki Sushi, which serves up the good stuff next to Stick in The Mud Coffee.

Sooke New Listings MLS Tour Summary #2

Due to MLS® advertising rules, I’ve decided that I can’t offer the tour summary any longer. I thought about this all last week, and came to the conclusion it could come across as advertising other agents’ listings, which is not allowed under our Rules of Cooperation. I’d rather stop doing it voluntarily than be told I’m in violation.

Rest assured, if you have any questions about any new listings in Sooke, you can contact me at 250-885-0512and I’ll probably have already been through on our weekly tour. If you’re in Sooke and want your house included on the tour, let me know!

New Feature: Sooke New Listings MLS Tour Summary #1

One of the advantages of using your local Sooke REALTOR® when it comes time to sell your home is the tight-knit sense of community among local real estate professionals. Every Thursday, the three main real estate offices in Sooke hold our weekly MLS Tour, where each REALTOR® in town tours through all the new MLS listings in a two-hour caravan-style tour.

In many other communities in Victoria, tours are poorly attended and disorganized. The tour in Sooke is very well attended (I’d say 85% of the REALTORS® here attend), and is the highlight of the week for many agents, myself included. Besides socializing with my peers, I get an opportunity to view most of the houses for sale. It helps me price my listings, and also is a great tool for pre-viewing new listings for my out-of-town clients, or for buyers that are looking for something very specific. If I see it, I can let them know. I learn more about the market in two hours on MLS tour than I could in a whole day of research on the MLS.

In this weekly (assuming I can attend tour) feature, I’m going to comment on the listings on tour. Which are hot buys, what’s unique about each one. For further information about any of the listings here, contact me.

[Update May 2nd 2008] Due to MLS® advertising rules I’ve decided that I can’t offer the tour summary any longer.
