About Gerry

This page is about my personality and interests. Here's a page describing my real estate services and testimonials.

Photo of Gerry Thomasen, Nanaimo realtorI have a genuine passion for all things Nanaimo - especially the geography and history - and I'm excited to be involved in everything that's happening here right now. I'm the type of guy who talks to tourists. Becoming a realtor was a natural choice.

Outside of my awesome wife and kids, my greatest interests include hiking, relic hunting, and camping. I'm also an avid swimmer, reader, singer, and photography hobbyist. I'm happiest when I'm exploring a new place, outdoors.

Personality: I'm outgoing and I relate well with people, always trying to make them feel comfortable. My sense of humour is a bit "out there" but I take things very seriously when it's down to business.
Character: Clients like my straightforward, ethical, honest approach. And I'm always inquisitive and learning - because I want to do a good job.

I spent my childhood in Port Coquitlam near Vancouver, but always felt a sense of belonging when I visited the Island. After high school, my friend moved to Nanaimo - I would visit and we would go to awesome Nanaimo art school parties and beautiful seaside parks. I fell in love with Nanaimo and moved here - I've been here 20 years and never looked back.

I got a degree in Liberal Arts at Malaspina/VIU, started a family with an island girl, built a Nanaimo information website to pay off my student loans, and spent 13 years helping to build a successful real estate web development company. It was inevitable that I would become licensed as an agent and would start helping people to find their homes in Nanaimo. I love this city BIG TIME and I think it deserves the attention.

Do you think we'd connect? Give me a call or use my contact form. I'll bring something useful to the table if you're dealing in property within the Nanaimo landscape.
