As an experienced RE/MAX real estate agent with over 6 years of experience I bring a high standard of service and expertise to the table. I have been an islander since 1986, and in Nanaimo since 1998.
Buying a house is probably the single largest purchase most people make in their lifetime and, of course, we each have our own unique requirements when it comes to finding that dream home. There will be many different properties to consider within the budget you’ve set – but finding that perfect home might seem like a weighty task.
It needn’t be.
Let me lift the weight from your shoulders with proven Championship Performance.
As an experienced real estate agent with 6 years of experience with RE/MAX of Nanaimo I bring a high standard of service and expertise to the table. I have lived on the island since 1986 and in Nanaimo since 1998. I treat all my clients as I would want my own family to be treated: with professionalism, loyalty and integrity.
I AM DEDICATED TO LIVING BY THESE CORE VALUES:
Live by the "Get By Giving" philosophy. Make my clients' #1 goal my #1 goal. Live up to my standards, despite temptations to lower them. Be willing to work toward a common good. Do what I say I will do, sometimes more, just never less.
What Rhonda Brings To The Table Every Day
Prior to becoming a REALTOR® I worked as a ticketed carpenter. I bring my trade knowledge to the table when helping buyers choose wisely and when helping sellers prepare to list. I can identify potential issues that should be addressed before the listing process as well as help buyers look more closely at the quality of home they are purchasing. Residential real estate is my specialty and my passion. I am an all-in kind of agent. My work ethic is the same ethic that took me to 8 Nationals and 6 World Championships as a Canadian Champion Powerlifter. I still compete after 32 years at this level and maintain this level of performance in all I take on, both professionally and personally.
We recently purchased a home in Nanaimo with the help of Rhonda Heaslip, and a great help she was! She spent hours sorting through listings she thought might meet our wish-list, and obviously listened well, as we found one we could love. She was endlessly patient with our inquiries, and stood by us when we thought we would lose our choice. She was very reassuring and supportive. We also found that her experience as a carpenter was invaluable, as she was able to advise us on the quality of the construction and finishes. Without her, we would have missed some areas of poorer workmanship in some of the homes we viewed. She was also very helpful in guiding us through the multiple legalities involved in buying our new home and in selling our old one (even though it was not in the central Vancouver Island region and we used a different REALTOR® for that). She was totally professional and did an excellent job for us. In short, one could not make a better choice than Rhonda Heaslip when buying or selling . We would not hesitate to recommend her as a REALTOR® to anyone.
∼ Ed and Nancy R.
"Rhonda shows professionalism and first class knowledge of the real estate market. She helped make the purchase of our home easy. I would not hesitate to call her again. You know that you are being looked after"
∼ Michael J. Price
"When I was shopping for a home, I had a vision in my head of exactly what I wanted. It was hard to describe so I gave Rhonda details as I thought of them. Rhonda always found places that had every detail I gave her, but then I would think of another detail. She never gave up, and found me a For Sale By Owner that was a perfect match to the vision I had in my head. Thank you Rhonda. I love my new home."
∼ Kim Moes
To whom it may concern; I recently purchased a home with Rhonda Heaslip acting as my agent and wanted to say how impressed I was with her. She knew how inflexible my schedule was, and was always willing to work around it and plus had patience showing me the many listings I had requested to see. Her knowledge in construction came into play as well as her opinions influenced the kind of home I ultimately decided to go with. Rhonda was very thorough and precise and made sure I had a clear understanding of everything. I will definitely use Rhonda again with my next home purchase.
Regards, Christina Armstrong

Rhonda is dedicated to giving her clients the best service possible. She was always prompt in responding to any queries about property and arranging viewings. She helped us purchase a property, where several stumbling blocks arose, but through it all, she worked hard and courtiously to overcome them.
We enjoyed working with her and never felt any pressure to respond to her agenda; she attended to ours. We found Rhonda enthusiastic about her work and very professional with attention to detail. There is no question that we would seek Rhonda to assist us with any future property dealings.
∼ Cathy Sangster & Kit Morgan, Nanaimo
Rhonda Heaslip recently helped us view and assess various real estate options resulting in the purchase of what has turned out to be a very well chosen property. The energy, commitment and expertise Rhonda contributed was exemplary, beginning with the search and continuing long after the completion of the financial transaction. We will soon be putting our existing home on the market, with Rhonda being our number one choice for listing realtor. I would most sincerely recommend Rhonda. Her commitment to your requirements will not likely be surpassed by others.
∼ Graham & Debbie VanderHoek
"Rhonda, we were more than pleased with your services in both the selling of our home & purchase of our new acreage. You negotiated top dollar for our home at a time when housing sales were slow - and you did it within weeks! Amazing! We would not hesitate to recommend you and we would definitely use your services again!"
∼ Linda & Garth M.
I would like you to recognize Rhonda Heaslip as a Professional Realtor who takes pride in her work, matching homes to people.
My wife Samantha and I had a specific shopping list when we came to Nanaimo to find a home. This proved to be a daunting task for these Calgarians who are used to a plentiful supply of very modern homes from which to select. I am sure Rhonda must have felt the same frustrations and discouragement as we did, but she persevered. It took several trips and a couple of false starts, but eventually we were able to purchase a very satisfactory home in the Jingle Pot area.
I have been in the "people business" for 30 years, and recognize the value of having a professional on my team who is doing their best to fill my needs. I also know the value of being referred by a satisfied client. Rhonda a.k.a. "Rhonda Remax" will certainly be referred by this family at every opportunity.
∼ Harry A. Demidavicius
"We were so glad to have chosen Rhonda as our agent. She was extremely knowledgeable, very professional and was willing to go the extra mile for us at any moment. We love our new home and we recommend Rhonda for all your real estate needs. Thank you Rhonda."
∼ Andrew & Christine C.
"Thank you Rhonda! You were awesome to work with, knowledgeable, friendly and very fast with feedback from showings. I highly recommend you!"
