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 4 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 HOME when I visited the Island. After high school when my friend moved to Nanaimo, I came to visit - we went to wild art school parties and beautiful seaside parks. I fell in love with Nanaimo and moved here - I've been here over 23 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 working with people looking for homes in Nanaimo. I love this city BIG TIME and I think it deserves the attention.
