About Us

About Us

BC Island Homes is your #1 For Sale By Owner website serving the West Coast including the Discovery Islands, the Gulf Islands, the Sunshine Coast, and Vancouver Island.

BC Island Homes was created 16 years ago as a result of thorough market research that determined there was a gap between retaining the services of a realtor, paying exorbitant fees, and the home owner struggling to sell their own home in order to retain as much of their hard earned equity as possible. West Coast home owners needed a platform to sell their home or property. BC Island Homes has provided that platform. 

Every year, BC Island Homes has continued to grow. We work hard to earn your business and to assist you in achieving your goals. Our efforts are being rewarded. BC Island Homes was awarded the ‘Business Of The Year’ award from the Comox Valley Home Based Business Association in 2001, and the ‘Best Local Business Website’ award from NEBS Business Canada’s Community Newspapers Association and the Comox Valley Record. The best reward of all? It is You, the satisfied customer. Over 80% of our business continues to be a combination of repeat customers and referrals from those very same happy, satisfied customers. We invite you to read some of the comments we have received over the years from our ever growing list of happy home sellers. 

BC Island Homes is locally owned. We are not a franchise. Nor is our head office in another province. We live, play, and work on the West Coast. We are proud to service the more than 140 communities on the West Coast that you call home. BC Island Homes has an excellent reputation for service and success. Our high rankings on the internet search engines have been earned not purchased. 

Our research has shown that, while current ‘For Sale By Owner’ sales average 10-15% of all property sales on the West Coast, in some pockets of Canada that number is as high as 25-30%. All indications are that this is not a trend but, in fact, the new reality for real estate in Canada. BC Island Homes is proud to be an integral part of the West Coast real estate market.

BC Island Homes is wholly owned and operated by the Orca Marketing Group Inc.
