Esquimalt, with its military base (CFB Esquimalt) is almost surrounded by water, so even if you can’t afford waterfront property, you are never far from the beach.  And over the past few years Esquimalt has seen the development of several gorgeous condominium developments that have rejuvenated the east side.

View Royal is predominantly a residential community and is tucked neatly into the centre of, well, almost everything.  The Victoria General Hospital (VGH) is located in View Royal and the city of Victoria is just five or ten minutes drive.

Victoria BC Realtor Heather Wilde was raised and educated in Winnipeg. After graduating from both the University of Winnipeg (Bachelor of Arts) and the University of Manitoba Faculty of Education she relocated to British Columbia in 1975. Her career in real estate has been successful due to her commitment to and genuine pleasure at helping families find homes and properties for sale in Victoria BC. Heather was licensed as a Realtor in 1976 and since then has worked hard to achieve a high standard of performance; consistently attaining a Victoria Real Estate Board MLS Gold Award. If you ask Heather, she will undoubtedly say that although it’s nice to be recognized in the industry through performance awards, what really drives her success is the relationships and friendships she forges with the families that she helps. Many of Heather’s former clients have become close friends, and many of her close friends have become clients. That says a lot about her dedication to providing professional service while maintaining a friendly rapport with clients. Heather loves to travel the world (preferrably on a cruise ship!) and also enjoys tennis and bridge during her spare time. As of January 2014, Heather has retired from her real estate career.
