“It’s got a mix of some of the oldest homes in the Lower Mainland, and they’ve got cool microbreweries and restaurants coming in. The shops are getting better, too, and there’s a good arts community. It’s almost like a little mini-Vancouver.”—Corey Martin, realtor, Ruth and David Group
“You can get big properties out there, and the waterfront is gorgeous. There are fabulous mansions up on the bluffs, and great amenities, too. You’re farther out of town, but I know tons of people who have gone that route and have been very happy with it.”—Rod MacKay, realtor, Maude, MacKay and Co.
“There are lots of parks and outdoor trails. It has attracted people looking for a healthy lifestyle; some developments have catered to that with big health clubs. It isn’t inexpensive compared to other communities that far east, but compared to Kits, it’s affordable.”—Darcy McLeod, realtor, Re/Max Lifestyles Realty
“Retirees are moving farther away from the centre, and lots of them are going out to Chilliwack. But seniors are really attracted to North Vancouver and even Squamish. They’re still active and like to be outdoors, and the North Shore offers lots of outdoor activities, but it’s a quieter lifestyle.”—D.M.
