Port Alberni is one of Vancouver Island’s gems – a small town that offers residents everything from outdoor adventure, boating and fishing, to restaurants, nightlife and shopping. Homeowners know that it provides everything they need, and here at the Dave Team, we are seeing that the Port Alberni Real Estate market is thriving with more and more out-of-town buyers.
2015 has been busy. In October, we handled three times more volume than in October 2014. This is evident by the number of sold signs around Port Alberni. Just like the area, we’re growing and working with more buyers, helping them find and buy their dream home. And hey, who wouldn’t want to live in Port?

The Koszegi’s Tiny-Home Construction and Adventure
No matter how busy life gets, we try to make time as a family to hit the open road together, build campfires, toast marshmallows, make s’mores, and tell stories underneath the starry skies; with the hopes these will be passed on to the next generation.

Needless to say, the kids are loving it! More photos coming soon...

Port Alberni’s waterfront was booming as observers gathered to check out the competitive SUP race from China Creek to Canal Beach, as well as participate in the fun relay race (for those not so steady on the paddleboard) and indulge in some sweet treats offered by local vendors.
Dave raced on Ean’s team, with Isaac, Darrell, and Damien! Here…
