Blaine and Michelle Thurlow are REALTORS® in Crofton, BC, in Vancouver Island's sunny, warm Cowichan Valley.
I left a career in Information Technology & Security for a change of scenery, and I'm loving it! I love being a REALTOR® because of the variety, the challenge, and most of all, the opportunity to meet and help great people I’ve been in love with British Columbia, and especially Vancouver Island, since I first discovered it in 1971. I really don’t think there’s a better place to live on Earth. I love the rainforest, the ocean, and the amazing abundance of fun activities, events, and festivals – not to mention the mild winters.
I enjoy hiking, biking, weight training, jazz, blues, world, and ambient music, playing World of Warcraft, and motorcycling (the Island is a fantastic place to ride!) I also love the Real Estate Business, and the people I've met because of it.
After a 21 year career in maternity nursing, I switched to helping clients find their dream home or sell their current home in the Cowichan Valley. Ten years working with families and eleven years of educating nurses have given me the interpersonal skills that are crucial in being a trustworthy, passionate, and hard-working REALTOR® that every client needs in buying or selling their home.
In my spare time I enjoy swimming, painting, winemaking, cooking, and hiking. There's so much to do here in the Valley, it's impossible to do it all!
