I fell in love with Whistler and Pemberton -and working in their diverse real estate markets – years ago. It’s a rewarding experience that I expect to last a lifetime.
It isn’t hard to fall in love with Whistler and Pemberton real estate and of course. While each town has its own vibe and unique traits both contain some of the most welcoming homes, outdoor recreation opportunities and most incredible views in the country.
With such a bustling tourism industry and amenities, it is humbling to remember that our village only has about 10,000 permanent residents. That population can easily quadruple during ski season and other busy holidays. The locals are a healthy mix of families, professionals, professional athletes, seasonal workers—and ski bums—each offering something unique to the culture of our town.
People are drawn to this outdoor haven because of the lifestyle at the heart of it all. The invigorating natural environment provides an idyllic backdrop to one of the most naturally-thrilling locations in Canada. Skiing, snowboarding, skateskiing, snowshoeing, ski touring, snowmobiling, mountain/cross-country/road biking, running, triathlons, hiking, swimming, canoeing, kayaking, paddleboarding…the list goes on.
Whistler can be bustling at times, but it never loses its small-town feel. Our mountain resort town has a unique vibe that attracts homebuyers from across the country and the world. From quaint shops to high-end products, services and amenities, Whistler boasts it all.
While many people—visitors and residents alike—come here for the two world-class mountains (and the picturesque views they create), Whistler is more than a mountain. We also have the #1 mountain bike park on the continent, five pristine lakes, four ski-in/ski-out neighbourhoods and three top-notch golf courses. You can be skiing, hiking, biking or laying poolside during the day and then explore the Village at night for sumptuous food and entertaining nightlife.
Our ‘more-than-a-mountain’ town has a surprisingly diverse and burgeoning real estate market. From one-bedroom condos, townhouse rentals to lakefront and ski-in/ski-out estate homes—Whistler has something for everybody. If you’re curious where your budget falls in that spectrum, contact me. I will happily update you on the current market trends and show you the top properties that match your personal criteria.
Pemberton makes Whistler look like a bustling metropolis in comparison, as it has just 2,500 permanent residents. This family-oriented town is absolutely adored by those who make it their home via Pemberton real estate.
This community is a mixture of young families, long time locals and farmers which has created a uniquely-Pemberton vibe. Located just 30 minutes north of Whistler, Pemberton remains easily accessible to those looking to purchase Pemberton real estate. The authentic agricultural feel combined with ever-growing amenities makes this town unique in its own right. This sleepy town is waking up quickly and it is currently one of the fastest growing rural communities in Canada. The town recently added a new community centre that features a library, fitness centre and meeting rooms.
Most Pemberton residents like to divide their time between the many activities in the area – it’s a backcountry haven. From ski touring and cross country biking to u-pick berry farms, horseback riding and golfing, there’s never a shortage of outdoor recreation near your piece of Pemberton real estate. There’s also beautiful trails for hiking, rivers and lakes for swimming and nearby hot springs.
The Pemberton real estate market has a healthy mix of townhouses, condos, homes, farmland and estate acreages. Many of the higher-end homes have stunning views of Mount Currie. Those looking for a home away from home or an investment property may enjoy the waterfront cabins on Anderson Lake.
