Are you looking for a career with growth, independence and excellent financial potential? Then why not consider launching a career as a real estate sales professional with Pemberton Holmes? Whether just starting out, a recent college graduate or thinking about launching a brand new second career, becoming a REALTOR® is for you if you’re the type of person who thrives on independence, has a desire to be self-employed and love to meet people.

“Pemberton Holmes Real Estate started in Victoria, British Columbia in 1887,” explains owner and Managing Broker Mike Holmes. “Locally, the Pemberton Holmes office in Nanaimo opened in 2017 with over 20 agents, creating an environment of seasoned professionals that can mentor REALTORS® that are just coming in to the business.”

For young people thinking about launching a career as a REALTOR® the timing couldn’t be better. Statistics indicate that in the coming years there will be a shortage of trained professionals in this lucrative and ever-changing career sector. The National Association of REALTORS® (NAR) reports the median age of REALTORS® in the US is now 56 years, with only 12 per cent of REALTORS® being younger than 40. The situation is similar in Canada where the proportion of real estate brokers under the age of 40 is lower than the average for “all occupations,” coming in at 23 per cent. The average age is 54, based on federal government census data.

With an energetic real estate sales market and a dwindling pool of real estate professionals to sell them (due primarily to retirement and career changes) the sky’s the limit for REALTORS® just entering the profession. For someone just launching their career, Pemberton Holmes is the perfect fit. “We are a mid-size office backed by one of the largest brokerages on Vancouver Island.  We are equipped with knowledgeable front end staff and all the technology and tools to manage your real estate business. We provide a nurturing environment with the opportunity to work with a great group of professionals that really enjoy their chosen career,” Mike explains.

“We provide personalized one-on-one, in-house training that works with your schedule as well as live training opportunities to accompany a seasoned professional on a Listing Presentation, Market Evaluation and Buyer showing. Pemberton Holmes offers a number of office plans that allow you to get control of the income that you net from every transaction.”

Real estate sales is a profession with potential, growth and longevity and there is no better place to launch that career in the Central Vancouver Island area than at Pemberton Holmes.  For more information, contact Karrie Brennan at or 250-753-9688.
