Shane Ballance - Licensed Realtor®


RE/MAX of Nanaimo

1-5140 Metral Dr., Nanaimo, BC, V9T 2K6

I am a true Vancouver Islander. I was born & raised in Nanaimo and have experienced many changes and growth along the way. Having lived in Nanaimo all of my life, I was unsure about ever moving away from this island paradise to experience life elsewhere as Nanaimo and Vancouver Island has been an incredible city to grow my career and family.

 My grandfather first exposed me to real estate investing when I was a young boy. He urged me to save for a down payment until I could purchase my own home. I started saving for my first of many homes at age 13. Just over ten years later I was able to solidify my “dream” home. I took that old 70’s home and renovated it extensively and created a suite in the basement and instantly became a landlord. I have extensive experience in house building and renovations with having either built or renovated houses on Salt Spring Island, Lake Cowichan, Ladysmith and Saltair, and of course Nanaimo. I became involved in Real Estate as an investor before transitioning to Real Estate as a full-time career. I am proud to say that I have been working in the Real Estate industry throughout Western Canada servicing buyers and sellers of all types of properties since 2008. I am passionate about helping people attain their next or very first home, whether relocating or wanting a fresh start. I work hard to provide unparalleled quality and depth of market information to implement and negotiate strategically sound Real Estate decisions for my clients that I serve.

The ocean and mountains are my oasis. On any given day you can find me hiking and exploring new mountain trails. In the spring and summer months I will be out with friends and family on the ocean either teaching my children how to fish and boating safety, or out on fishing excursions. Those boating adventures have brought about several experiences of seeing many species of whales and porpoises that people can only dream of. Kayaking in our lakes and oceans also brings a sense of feeling in being grounded with nature. Why not enjoy what this island has to offer us!

I look forward in sharing life experiences with you and also the privilege of serving you with all of your real estate needs.
