Michelle & Blaine Thurlow



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 agent 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!


I left a career in Information Technology & Security for a change of scenery, and I'm loving it! 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 and the ocean – not to mention the mild winters.

I enjoy hiking, biking, weight training, jazz and ambient music, playing World of Warcraft, and motorcycling (I'm also a journeyman Motorcycle Mechanic). I also love the Real Estate Business, and the people I've met because of it.
