Oak Bay

by hwilde on July 10, 2010

They say Oak Bay has more millionaires per square kilometre than anywhere else in Canada, but what does that mean? City property values being what they are these days, there are lots of millionaires – everywhere! Oak Bay does have more than its share of beautiful homes though, and we have John Charles Olmstead to thank for that. When he designed the Uplands neighborhood in the early 1900’s I bet there were a bunch of people who thought that his wide curving streets and large properties were pretty strange. But his vision led to a development of uncommon beauty and luxury, and influenced the development and character of the entire area.

Of course it doesn’t hurt that Oak Bay is also an oceanside community with one of the mildest climates in Canada, and just a few blocks from one of the prettiest small cities in the world – Victoria. If you are in the market for a new home, close to the city and its amenities, but set apart in its own quiet haven, you should investigate Oak Bay.


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.
