If you are in the market for a new Nanaimo home or want to invest in Nanaimo real estate, call Doug Belcher.
I love to work with first time buyers on a tight budget but I am just as comfortable selling luxury homes. I work in the Nanaimo RE/MAX office but handle real estate sales in Ladysmith, Nanoose Bay, Lantzville and in Parksville. I give very personalized service (no assistants or buyers agents); when you call me I answer the phone and you will speak directly to me. My home and cell number are both posted on my web site because clients should be able to get hold of their REALTOR® when they want to.
Before selling real estate at RE/MAX Nanaimo?
I was born in Powell River and grew up in Nanaimo, British Columbia and received my associate in commerce at Malaspina College in Nanaimo in 1983. My family has been residing in Nanaimo since 1907. I enjoy golfing, fishing and skiing. As a former hotelier, I know what service is all about. Delivering five diamond service is my promise.
I started out working in hotels in BC including Duncan and Campbell River, and then worked with Hyatt Hotels in Vancouver. I was with Hyatt for 13 years opening and renovating properties in Vancouver, Hawaii and California. I also worked in the Caribbean as a Food and Beverage Director.
In my career, I have served Kings, Queens, Princes, several Presidents, screen legends and rock stars so I am not easily intimidated in a negotiation. Great service and hard work is second nature to me and I can do it under pressure.
My father (Dick Belcher) is one of the founders of RE/MAX of Nanaimo, and I am happy to follow in his footsteps.
My business background prior to real estate was opening, operating and in many cases renovating hotels. Real estate is a service-related business as well, and I deliver great service.
My Future as a RE/MAX REALTOR
I am proud to work for RE/MAX. RE/MAX is a very progressive company with over 120,056 REALTORS ®. With a seemingly endless flow of people retiring on Vancouver Island, Nanaimo's future real estate market is looking very bright.
Nanaimo's Top ranked REALTOR ® Site
Successfully marketing your home requires getting the most exposure to the marketplace. My site is consistently ranked as the top ranked real estate site in Nanaimo and one of the top sites in the RE/MAX system world wide. I am also found in most of the top ranking directories. Google consistently rank me higher than any other REALTOR ® in Nanaimo under most searches.
Note: Rankings change daily and there are multiple search terms i.e.: Nanaimo Condos / Nanaimo Real Estate / Nanaimo Town homes / RE/MAX Nanaimo / Nanaimo REALTOR ® /Nanaimo Luxury Homes / New Homes in Nanaimo.

Phil and I just wanted to tell you that we thought the basket of goodies for the hot tub was a wonderful surprise and a great idea. We really appreciate all the help you gave us with the purchase and all the extra help and advice after we had possession. It was so nice of you to drop the key off the first time with Jason and then again when you dropped off the basket of goodies with the second key. You went above and beyond the call of duty as a realtor and we really appreciate everything you've done. We were especially happy that you managed to obtain the extra key for us - we're hoping that you got it from the other realtor and didn't purchase it from the caretakers. Thanks again for everything, Doug. We'll definitely recommend you whenever we have the chance....
Cheers, Kathy & Phil
Doug Thanks so much for making our new house purchase happen. We appreciate your professionalism, knowledge and sense of humor. We'll be spreading word around of your service. Thanks!
Jessie and Lauralee
P.S. : We love this place!
I'm now settled in my new home and the house warming gift that you delivered in person was as individual as the service you gave me in the sale of my home and the purchase of my new home.
I've sold and bought a lot of homes in the last twenty some odd year's, and was never as relaxed and confident as I was with you acting as my realtor. I wish you had been my realtor for the last home's, as I would have had a lot less gray hair. Personal and individual service is hard to come by in this fast paced world of ours, and to get it in a very busy market is very rare. That is how I would describe you as a realtor, and the kind of service you gave me. INDIVIDUAL AND RARE!
Thank you so much for all the kindness and understanding you have shown me. If there is ever a time when I need the services of another realtor, I would never entertain any thought but to use you as my representative.
Doug For Service above and beyond the call of duty. Thank you for all your help. We could not have found this house without you. We appreciate all of your time and effort.
Hope to keep in touch,
Gary Leah and Samantha Weatherhead
There are no words to express our delight in your service. You were so completely thorough in every aspect regarding the sale of my property and kept us well informed. Your perseverance in adhering to the full agreed market price was admirable to say the least.
Your appearance and manners are so very charming. I can't see anything in the future but many successful years for you in the real estate business as long as you care to stay.
You are an asset to the name RE/MAX realty indeed.
