Sandy Stinson



Sandy first came to the Cowichan Valley in 1975 to be with her husband Buck. She worked at the Youbou Saw mill for 11 years before starting a family.

Sandy started her Real Estate journey in 1990 when she was given her first five houses to property manage (thanks Joni). It was a perfect fit as it was the year Sandy and Buck had their fourth child so it was some pocket money to help take the kids on little outings. In 1993 The Real Estate Council mandated a real estate license necessary to do the job so Sandy decided that would be a good fit. As the kids got older she worked up to managing over 100 homes in the area and this turned out to be a perfect Segway into Real Estate. Having a strong commitment to getting to know her clients and learning each of the homes inside and out has given her a valuable history of almost all the homes in Lake Cowichan and surrounding area. Gradually many of her tenants and landlords turned into buyers and sellers and her Real Estate career took off. Sandy became an owner of Remax of Lake Cowichan in 2004 and has worked hard to build a strong reputation as the ‘Go-To-Agent’ in the area. Well known to her community as a caring and hardworking business-woman, Sandy attributes her success to the ongoing support of her community, past clients and friends and family.

In 2020 Sandy decided to sell the brokerage to Jennifer Allen and Ally Earle, in order to just focus on assisting her past clients and referrals to buy & sell Real Estate on Vancouver Island. Sandy prides herself as an expert in selling a variety of homes, including modular, mobile, single family homes, condominiums, acreages, land development and sales, large condo and land projects, an accredited senior specialist, and an Eco Broker since 2005. Her hope is to find a developer who is interested in eco friendly small homes with big high-tech gardens and lots of out buildings!
