About Laura Healey

Hello! My name is LAURA HEALEY, and I am a realtor living and working in the beautiful ‘Hub City’ of Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island. Thanks for visiting my site!

I absolutely love life in my immediate community of Nanaimo’s Old City Quarter, and all over this incredible island, sincerely considering it a privilege to help others fulfill their real estate dreams here. To this end, as I feel it is very important to know and wholeheartedly trust a realtor from the outset of what will likely be the most significant transaction of your life, I have provided you with a head-start on this page.

Here, you will find an overview of my personal and professional background, my real estate experience, and even my hobbies and interests! However, if you need more information before wisely committing to buy or sell Nanaimo real estate with me, please feel free to call or email me right away!

“Laura went above and beyond helping to find the right property for us. Overall our home buying experience went from stomach-churning to an excellent adventure. We are beyond satisfied.” – GAIL CAMPBELL

Whether you are looking to buy or sell a home in Nanaimo, I will guide you along every step of your journey, ensuring that the process is as transparent, smooth, and stress-free as possible. That is my guarantee.

Having attained my Real Estate Licence in 2019, I also bring to the table seven years’ experience working as an Executive Assistant, Office Manager and Transaction Coordinator in one of Nanaimo’s leading and award-winning real estate teams, so rest assured you are in excellent hands. As a Vancouver Island girl through and through I know the island extremely well – especially the Central Island region - so can help you find the home of your dreams in the area you desire, or else guide you in selling your home for the highest market value. Why do so with me? Well, real estate as a profession seems to be something of a family thing: my father spent many years running a large mortgage brokerage, and my mother was once a legal conveyancer for a large Comox Valley real estate firm, so I guess it’s in my blood!

“Buying our dream home was a remarkably stress-free and surprisingly enjoyable process, much of it due to Laura’s unswerving professionalism and excellent level of communication.” – DAVID & SUSAN MORRISON

I was born in Comox and grew up in the gorgeous Miracle Beach area. I worked in Customer Service at Mountain Meadow Sports and the Kingfisher Oceanside Resort & Spa (both in Courtenay), before moving to Nanaimo in 2001 to attend university for five years. Graduating with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Business & Marketing, I worked for Starbucks® in Vancouver, then Enterprise Rent-A-Car® in Courtenay and Duncan, before returning to Nanaimo…where, because I love the city so much, I have remained ever since!

In my downtime I love exploring beautiful Vancouver Island with my dog, spending time with family and friends, and both local and international travel. The mild climate here, as well as the proximity of the city to nature and major cities like Vancouver, Victoria and even Seattle, make Nanaimo an ideal home for me, which is another reason I love to help people find their forever homes in Nanaimo. I also practice yoga and maintain a healthy lifestyle, especially by eating local produce from the many excellent farmers’ markets on Vancouver Island. Well, that’s a little about me, but I am excited to get to know you when embarking on our journey to find your perfect home or sell your current one.
