“It was a dream start for us in the Engel & Völkers network,” said Sales Director Brian Danyliw. “To my knowledge, the beachhouse is the most expensive property ever to be sold in Tofino. We are very pleased that we managed to close such a major sale just as we are setting out with E&V,” Mr. Danyliw added. Tofino is located on Vancouver Island off the west coast of Canada and is a popular holiday destination thanks to its miles of beaches.
The owner of the beachhouse originally visited the shop as he had heard about the global presence of Engel & Völkers. He was also looking for a very experienced real estate agent and felt that he had found one having spoken at length with Brian Danyliw. Another property company represented and supported the buyer, who is from the Canadian province of Alberta.
“The buyer was looking for a house by the beach that met the highest standards in terms of its fittings and appointments. He was immediately taken with the whirlpool overlooking beautiful Chesterman Beach, the property’s own pizza oven in the kitchen, and the fitness room,” revealed Brian Danyliw. After the viewing the buyer entered a bid, which was accepted by the owner. “It is not only the highest sales price ever to have been fetched in Tofino. It is also the highest price for nine years on the whole Vancouver Island Real Estate Board,” said Mr. Danyliw.
