Yesterday my daughter and I travelled 40 minutes west of Victoria along the coast to a town called Sooke. We were going there for her Bantam A Division hockey tryout/evaluation session. If you've never been to Sooke, you should try it someday. There are lovely waterfront homes, there's a very luxurious inn with spectacular food called Sooke Harbour House and for those boaters and fishermen, marinas for your boat. Sooke's name comes from the T'sou-ke first nation people who settled this area rich in salmon, clams and the forest animals. For the early European settlers, the forest represented a lucrative lumber opportunity. Today as more and more people make southern Vancouver Island their home, expansion has been to the west and for some, to the community of Sooke. From Sooke along the ...

From my other Blog: The Pointe is Sunriver’s first phase of townhouses Sooke’s Sunriver Estates, the popular 382-acre planned community just west of Victoria, BC, has just released its first multi-family development. Called The Pointe, it will be a clustering of 32 units in 8 strata buildings in the tranquil, forested  setting of a 7-acre peninsula surrounded by De Mamiel Creek. The age 55-plus project features floor plans ranging from 1493 to 1750 sqft in a choice of either ground level or upper floor. The homes will be set amongst lush landscaping and irrigation systems, and like most strata developments, the monthly strata fee (at $139-$160) will cover the maintenance of the grounds and common property. This gives residents a truly maintenance-free living experience. All of the unit...

From my other Blog: Last weekend, Coast Capital Savings and Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty in Sooke, BC, teamed up to sell golf balls & t-shirts and put on a bake sale to raise money for Cops For Cancer - Tour De Rock. The event was a huge success, raising $492.20 for the charity. A big thank-you goes out to the community and all of the employees at the bank and local REALTORS® who baked, bought, and volunteered to make this event a success. Lots of goodies at the bake sale! “What Can I getcha?!” - Tim Ayres - Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty

Those that live here know you don't need a reason, but here are ten for those that still think Sooke is "out there, man!"(Sooke is a small seaside community near Victoria, BC, on Vancouver Island) 1. Lower housing prices: The Sooke market has been undervalued for years, and is still catching up to markets closer to major employers in Victoria and on the base at Esquimalt. It's not uncommon to find as much as a $100,000 spread between comparable homes in Sooke and Langford, and more between Sooke and Saanich or Victoria. You usually get a bigger lot out here as well. 2. Schools: Sooke has good ones, including Edward Milne Community School, one of the newest and most modern high schools in the area. A new elementary school at Sun River Estates is planned for the coming years. Sooke is al...
