Whistler Monday Morning Coffee - February 3, 2014

Real Estate Agent with The Linnell Group at The Whistler Real Estate Company Ltd.

Whistler Monday Morning CoffeeGood Morning!

I thought I'd keep it brief this morning but I definitely wanted to share with you a few new things. First and foremost, the Whistler Real Estate Company is moving today after 22 long years in our Whistler Marketplace location. The new space is stunning, very trend-setting and cutting edge in comparison to any other office space in Whistler. I've written a blog piece about this exciting move along with directions to the new office which is on Main Street at The Delta Whistler Village Suites right next door to Hy's Steakhouse. I'll be hosting a client appreciation party in the new space soon so stay tuned for more details on that.

On another note, I've just listed a newly renovated 3 bedroom/3 bath, 1,821 sq. ft. Pemberton condo built in 2004. In my opinion this is the best price versus space for any 3 bedroom condo north of Vancouver. #202 Portage Station in Pemberton shows incredible value in today's market and must be seen to be believed at only $249,000.

If you've been thinking of picking up a large condo in Whistler for your family but are unsure about spending big bucks then you really need to the small town feel of the community of Pemberton which is only a 25 minute drive north of Whistler Village. Click on the video below for a very quick tour of the property guided by me.


Notable New Listings

  • #27 Foxglove has just come on the market and this 2 bedroom/2 bath, 994 sq. ft. townhome on 2 levels is in the most ideal location on the sunny south end of this complex at The Villas on Blackcomb. A very easy and short walk to the ski slope on Blackcomb makes this a great buy if you're in the market for a Blackcomb townhome. Offered at $569,000.
  • 7181 Nancy Greene Drive was just listed over the past weekend and it's a truly gorgeous renovation. This 1,920 sq. ft., 3 bedroom/3 bath home in White Gold features a clever additional 2 "flex" media rooms that can easily double as bedrooms making this 3 bedroom home into a 5 bedroom whenever you have extra guests for the weekend. It was renovated in 2010 by Sitka Renovations to a high standard and you'll be very impressed once you step inside for a tour. Offered at $1,290,000.

Dean - I really love your video! it's neat to show you narrating for a while, then switch to the exterior and interior shots - I'm not as proficient as you are - wonder what you like to use to do these videos and if you have a 'helper' - also editing, etc. Anyway, this is a great post.

Hi Susan - thanks for the thumbs up. I've been doing my video blogs and video property tours for over 5 years and have recently started experimenting with an "interview" style where I turn the camera at myself and pretend I'm being interviewed by someone while I discuss the features of the property. I do it all myself with no helper!

I used to do all my own editing in iMovie on my Mac but recently decided that I needed to up my game and make my videos more professional. So, I am using a professional video editor that I found on Fiverr.com and he takes all my footage out of Dropbox and edits the whole thing for me. Usually with a turnaround of about a day. 

I'm very happy with it and it saves me time too.
