Macdonald Realty opens boutique offices in Sidney and Sechelt

Macdonald Realty has opened two new locations, the first in Sidney on Vancouver Island and the second in Sechelt on the Sunshine Coast.  These boutique offices join the province-wide network of 20 offices operated by Macdonald Realty, a B.C. owned and operated brokerage with a 70 year history of service and excellence.

“We’re focused on serving British Columbians in communities of all sizes” says Jonathan Cooper, Vice President, Operations. “Smaller offices like Sidney and Saanich, led by strong local REALTORS®, have become an important part of Macdonald Realty’s growth strategy over recent years.”

In Sidney, the new office opened with six agents and was spearheaded by Chace Whitson, a multiple MLS® Gold Award winner who has been with Macdonald Realty since 2013.  “Having our large office in Downtown Victoria, and now one in Sidney, allows us to serve our clients better across the whole region,” says Whitson. “Our affiliation with Luxury Portfolio International® gives our high-end clients a unique opportunity to market their home to the luxury elite across the globe, something that no other Victoria brokerage can offer.”

The Sechelt office is the result of a meeting between Managing Broker Patricia Place and Medallion Club REALTORS® Barbie Whitworth and Shay Moudahi who decided to switch their office to Macdonald Realty after being attracted by the company’s strong leadership, systems and brand positioning. “The new office is opening at just the right time with the Sunshine Coast market really heating up,” says Place, a part-time Sunshine Coast resident herself who also manages the company’s Squamish, West Vancouver and North Vancouver locations.

Victoria Realtors help TP the Town

October 11th to 17th marked this year’s Homelessness Action Week in Greater Victoria. Imagine yourself experiencing poverty, down to your last few dollars of the month and you need to make a choice between food for your family, or toilet paper. Guess what? Food always wins. This means many individuals and families in Victoria actually greatly appreciate the luxury of toilet paper. Something we flush down the toilet every single day can literally change lives. TP the Town aims to raise 50,000 rolls of toilet paper for people in need.

This year two agents from the Macdonald Realty Victoria office, Tracy Keenan-Whyte and Dane Kingsbury, participated in this wonderful community event!

Here Tracey shares their experience:
“My colleague Dane & I got out there early this morning to collect rolls of toilet paper – yes you read correctly – to support Homelessness Action Week in Victoria. Last year over 48,000 rolls were raised, and together we are hoping to reach 50,000 this year. A HUGE THANK YOU!! to all the households that donated – we applaud you. Something as simple as TP that we take for granted everyday is a luxury for many folks. And when it comes to making budget decisions as the month nears its end – food always comes first. Big thanks again to all of our donors…Dane & I picked up over 400 rolls of TP this morning!”

Stay tuned for more spotlights on our REALTORS® active in British Columbia communities!
