Rick Horsland is passionate about real estate. He says, “For me, this career is much more than buying and selling houses – it’s all about building relationships.”
Rick has been selling real estate successfully since 2004. He was born and raised in Nanaimo. He discovered a natural talent for sales early in life. Even while he was still in school, his after-school jobs involved selling something, including fireworks at Halloween. After high school and during his years at university, he sold cars at a major dealership where he honed his negotiating skills. That’s when friends and clients encouraged him to try real estate. Rick says, “Now I can’t imagine doing anything else. I love the challenge, the constant learning, the chance to use my natural abilities and the opportunity to shine. I know that the sky is the limit for me but most of all, I’m excited and gratified to know that I am making a difference in people’s lives.”
Rick is married with two young children who he is raising in the city where he grew up. As a native of Nanaimo, he enjoys sharing his love and knowledge of the area with his clients. “Because I have lived here all my life, I bring my knowledge to bear in my career. I know where to steer my clients when they are looking for a particular neighbourhood.” Rick has a reputation for going the extra mile for his clients, whether they need a referral to a great mortgage broker, world class marketing or even packing boxes for their move. He says, “My greatest pleasure comes from watching clients’ eyes light up when they find the home they have been dreaming of. And I work just as tirelessly to make sure my clients sell their home and get the value out of their investment.”
His clients call him helpful, personable, direct, honest and trustworthy. The vast majority of his clients are referrals and people he has worked with in the past.
