Marie and LOVE Real Estate Team are simply the best. Marie’s excellent advice, knowledge of all things house-related, her attention to detail, and outstanding commitment all factored into us getting the house of our dreams!

Throughout our experience working with Marie, she demonstrated her integrity time and again through her dealings with us and with other realtors. Throughout the process of looking for and purchasing our new home, she was patient, understanding, and an absolute pleasure to work with. We have come to trust her completely and we would highly recommend her to anyone.

When I decided to sell my home in Cedar by the Sea last April, I asked Love Real Estate Group to list it. Within a week, I had offers and a purchaser. Next, Love Real Estate Group showed me a number of potential residences that could meet my needs. Within three weeks, I was very interested in buying a townhouse, made an offer and it was accepted. I was very impressed with Love Real Estate Group’s manner in which they dealt with me. Their advice, professionalism and prompt service were especially appreciated. I would highly recommend these Ladies to others if they are seeking either to sell or buy a home. Thanks again Love Real Estate Group.

Biodiesel from Chicken Bones?

Triple Benefits from the Green Bin Program

  1. The volume of trash headed for our local Nanaimo area landfill is reduced by close to 50%.

2. ICC’s composting plant at Duke Point, just south of Nanaimo, currently processes 50-60 tons of organic waste, creating rich compost and compost-enriched soil available for your garden.

3. In the future food waste will be converted into renewable fuels.

Yes – you read that right! In the future your chicken bones and corn cobs will be converted into fuel to run your car or generate electricity. The B.C. government has promised a $2.5 million investment into the International Composting Corporation (ICC), Nanaimo based liquid biofuel project. The plan is for 2 million litres of biodiesel to be produced annually from the organic waste collected from our region.

This diagram from ICC shows how it works. For more information visit http://www.iccgroup.ca
