According to The Nanaimo News Bulletin, the B.C. government plans to give Nanaimo’s hospital a major upgrade.

Hi, I’m Jeff Wood and I love living in Nanaimo! And I love helping people make their move!
My wife and I moved to Nanaimo from Richmond in 2015, after raising our two kids there. We brought along our two precocious Border Collies; Jake and Cochise, who are sure they moved to Doggy Disneyland in the process. We live in Upper Lantzville and love it!
Before becoming a Realtor, I was a professional investor owning 8 multi-family properties with 24 tenants. I also spent 20 years as an Executive Headhunter, finding talented people for Fortune 500 clients in the USA and Canada. In that role, I functioned regularly as a professional negotiator, working with both sides to create a win win scenario. I also helped candidates relocate to start their new jobs and thus I have a lot of relocation experience.
Now as a realtor I apply all of these hard earned skills to the benefit of my clients, whether they’re buying, or selling, delivering results that move them!
