Gabriola is known as the “Isle of the Arts” for a good reason. It may have the highest density of artists of any place in Canada. With a population of over 4,000 the island is home to a mixture of retirees and families. Housing prices have been rising in the past few years but they are still reasonable compared to some of the neighbouring districts in Nanaimo.

Gabriola is accessible by a ferry that leaves the Nanaimo harbour approximately once an hour. While you can take your car, many people walk on and off to do there shopping in downtown Nanaimo.

Testimonials

We had been planning a move from Calgary to Nanaimo for retirement purposes for a few years. Upon discovering Love Real Estate Group a relationship began. Over a period of time, with patience, professionalism, good humour and integrity, Love Real Estate Group helped us secure a home that met our needs and our wishes. We are happy to recommend Love Real Estate Group to anyone looking to buy a property in the Nanaimo area.

Diane and Tom Crawford

We really appreciated Lisa’s help finding the perfect condo for us in Nanaimo. Lisa was a pleasure to work with, responding promptly, cheerfully and efficiently to even the smallest request. She worked tirelessly to get us familiar with different neighbourhoods and to consider different options. Even after the sale was completed successfully – which she facilitated professionally and expeditiously – she was always available to help. Working with Lisa was a great experience.
