Hello, and thanks for allowing me to introduce myself. I’m Jason Finlayson. I’m very proud to call the Cowichan Valley home. I’ve been fortunate enough to enjoy a one of kind Vancouver Island lifestyle which includes exploring west coast on my 30’ sailboat Kleewyck, hiking, mountain biking and diving. There aren’t many places that can boast snow skiing and golf all in the same day! As a Realtor, I have the pleasure of assisting others in making their Vancouver Island lifestyle dream a reality. For the past twenty four years I have been a successful, full-time real estate representative and more recently, the head of Finlayson and Associates at Pemberton Holmes Duncan. I bring to the table extensive business and marketing expertise with diplomas in both finance and marketing from Vancouver Island University (formerly Malaspina University-College) and successfully completed the Canadian Securities Course in 1996. I take pride in the ability to utilize the very latest technologies and draw on years of experience to deliver service and results you’ll be happy to recommend to friends and family. I look forward to assisting you in the courteous professional manner I’ve become known for, developed over my many years in both the real estate and hospitality industries. 24 Years of dedicated service as a full time REALTOR® President of the Vancouver Island Real Estate Board 2015 Jason.
