Born and raised in Calgary, Alberta, Nicolas moved to Vancouver Island in 2009 and is thrilled to call it home with his wife, Carly. She and their three kids are Nicolas’ main passions. They are both grateful to be able to raise them on Vancouver Island and all of the opportunities it has to offer, while balancing work, life, and outdoor adventure!
Nicolas is enthusiastic about Campbell River and building relationships with the people he meets. He completed his formal education earning his Bachelor of Arts Degree from the University of Calgary and his Bachelor of Education from the University of Victoria. He hails from a long-standing fifteen year career in education where he has been a mentor and coach to many. After completing his master’s degree in Leadership in 2014 from Vancouver Island University, Nicolas committed to using his skills to innovate education. He went on to create an award winning program called Carihi Fly Fishing, where he committed years of fundraising to pay for equipment needed to teach students how to fly fish. He combined teaching English, conservation, and fly fishing, where students earned full academic credits towards their graduation. It continues to be a success and a hallmark of innovation in education, which is still embraced by many in the community who contribute via donations and an annual memorial award. Further, the City of Campbell River requested he bring to life fly fishing in the city. He works as a community instructor, introducing those interested in the sport with evening classes.
In 2022, Nicolas completed his real estate certification from the Sauder School of Business at UBC. His wife Carly and he were seeking new opportunities and challenges for growth, so decided to fuse their complimentary skills to help demystify real estate for clients, and ease those looking to buy or sell a home.
Nicolas is excited to incorporate his friendly, trusting professionalism to match clients with a house they desire. He is bold and willing to negotiate to attain the most for his clients, whether they are buyers or sellers!
