My name is LAURA HEALEY, and I am a realtor living and working in the beautiful ‘Hub City’ of Nanaimo, on Vancouver Island.
I absolutely love life in my immediate community of Nanaimo’s Old City Quarter, and all over this incredible island, sincerely considering it a privilege to help others fulfill their real estate dreams here. To this end, as I feel it is very important to know and wholeheartedly trust a realtor from the outset of what will likely be the most significant transaction of your life, I have provided you with a head-start on this page.
Here, you will find an overview of my personal and professional background, my real estate experience, and even my hobbies and interests! However, if you need more information before wisely committing to buy or sell Nanaimo real estate with me, please feel free to call or email me right away!
Whether you are looking to buy or sell a home in Nanaimo, I will guide you along every step of your journey, ensuring that the process is as transparent, smooth, and stress-free as possible.
That is my guarantee.
As a Vancouver Island girl through and through I know the island extremely well – especially the Central Island region - so can help you find the home of your dreams in the area you desire, or else guide you in selling your home for the highest market value. Why do so with me? Well, real estate as a profession seems to be something of a family thing: my father spent many years running a large mortgage brokerage, and my mother was once a legal conveyancer for a large Comox Valley real estate firm, so I guess it’s in my blood!
“Buying our dream home was a remarkably stress-free and surprisingly enjoyable process, much of it due to Laura’s unswerving professionalism and excellent level of communication.” – DAVID & SUSAN MORRISON
I was born in Comox and grew up in the gorgeous Miracle Beach area. I worked in Customer Service at Mountain Meadow Sports and the Kingfisher Oceanside Resort & Spa (both in Courtenay), before moving to Nanaimo in 2001 to attend university for five years. Graduating with a Bachelor of Business Administration in Business & Marketing, I worked for Starbucks® in Vancouver, then Enterprise Rent-A-Car® in Courtenay and Duncan, before returning to Nanaimo…where, because I love the city so much, I have remained ever since!
“She definitely goes above and beyond!” – JENNIFER DESOR
In my downtime I love exploring beautiful Vancouver Island with my dog, spending time with family and friends, and both local and international travel. The mild climate here, as well as the proximity of the city to nature and major cities like Vancouver, Victoria and even Seattle, make Nanaimo an ideal home for me, which is another reason I love to help people find their forever homes in Nanaimo. I also practice yoga and maintain a healthy lifestyle, especially by eating local produce from the many excellent farmers’ markets on Vancouver Island.
Well, that’s a little about me, but I am excited to get to know you when embarking on our journey to find your perfect home or sell your current one.
My wife and I would like to thank Laura for all her help with our recent home purchase. Laura quickly tuned in to our preferences and needs and was johnny-on-the-spot to identify the perfect buying opportunity for us. She was very effective in navigating the offer process for us and we came to agreement with the seller quickly and at a fair price - no small accomplishment in this over-heated market. Once the agreement was signed, Laura was diligent in communicating and following up with next steps. Along the way, she answered our many questions and help us with many contacts and recommendations. We are now in our new home and couldn't be happier. All-in-all the process was as smooth as it could possibly be. Thanks again, Laura, for your outstanding work on our behalf. Highly recommended! - Ronald Greeves
Laura is more than a realtor - she was there to answer all of our questions as new homeowners and to guide us through the process of buying our first house.

We have just had the wonderful experience of buying a house with a real estate agent we really appreciate and trust. When it comes to buying a house, this was as good as it gets. Laura was nothing, if not absolutely patient with us, as we refined our needs and redefined the lifestyle we wanted. She was knowledgeable about the inventory in the areas and whether we would find the amenities we wanted nearby. She also has an excellent group of folks who could help with expert opinions on things like renovations, inspections or legal questions. She made sure all the bases were covered, reducing the stress that is inevitable with buying a house. We ended up with a great house at a great price. Bottom line: we felt we were working with someone who cared and who really knew what she was doing. Priceless! Gregg Reese and Rhonda Alderson - Rhonda Alderson

Would absolutely use again for buying or selling! - Jace Anderson

Laura was personable, and dedicated to finding us a place that was right for us. She was patient and helped us go for multiple viewings.

She has a great sense of humour and made what would have been a scary process fun! - Sidney Morrison

She even drove us for 2 hours in Nanaimo for free just for us to be more familiarize in town and to know which is good and which is not for my family. Her bed time is 10:30pm and yet she will extend her time just to chat with us planning for house viewing for the next day. We also had a car trouble one-time and she was there for us like an angel. She introduced us to some of her friends even to Cam who help us to fix our van. She is a family friend now and will definitely recommended her to all of our friends.

Laura went above and beyond helping find the right property for us. We live on the mainland, she had appropriate listings forwarded to us daily, then picked us up at the ferry and toured the properties we had selected. She walked us through the process and helped us find local professionals to help us during the buying process and after sale. Laura was professional, but friendly, offered advice tactfully. She was knowledgeable about the various areas we searched and drew our attention to many things we hadn't considered. Overall our home buying experience went from stomach churning to an excellent adventure. We felt confident and cared about in Laura's capable hands.
