UBC is not only one of the top universities in Canada; it is also home to a thriving residential community, as well as many sites and activities. If you are looking to purchase property within the UBC district, it is a great investment for immediate gratification, as well as payoff down the road!

UBC is laced with great trails and parks to explore. In fact, it is completely surrounded by the Pacific Spirit Regional Park – an ecological “sacred site” with trees that are hundreds (if not thousands) of years old, with plants, animals and foliage scents for miles.

Runners and walkers alike grace the Oceanside cliff-edge daily, and locals regularly take in UBC’s amazing West Coast experience at their doorstep.

UBC Botanical Garden & Centre for Plant Research is also a great way to get out and uncover your local forest, with all its ancient flora and fauna for all enjoy. And, it’s all below the suspended Canopy Walkway – which is yet another enjoyable UBC experience!

Alternately the Nitobe Memorial Garden offers a traditional Japanese wonderland filled with cherry blossoms, irises and maples – depending on the season they are in bloom …it is a spectacular sight.


Real estate and the communities within Westside Vancouver is know to be incredibly safe, and provides premium real estate buying options fitted with incredible views, accessible local dining gems, public, private and university educational institutions, and excellent shopping choices – all in close proximity to Downtown Vancouver, a quick gateway to Seattle, or a weekend retreat to Whistler.


Museum of Anthropology, Beaty Biodiversity Museum, and Pacific Museum of the Earth are 3 of the best museums you are likely to find in Vancouver – and they are all within the UBC Community and well worth a visit!

UBC’s very own team – the Thunderbirds, are ranked #1 among many varsity college sports within Canada. So whether you are cheering on your local University team, or catching a live outdoor concert that are also often hosted here …it’s a great venue fueled by a great time!


Although UBC can be found at the furthest reaches of our Western Canadian tip, through Kitsilano and outside of Kerrisdale, it is not without amenities or conveniences – both of which are plentiful. In addition, it is one of the most beautiful and nature-filled locations in which to live in Vancouver, and it is waiting for you to call it home.

Take a drive through, or give me a call and I can show you around and help you discover why this area is for more than an attraction for University students and tourists!

So whether you call Vancouver home and are looking for a local community fix, or are contemplating buying in Vancouver and wish to wander the districts that make up our fabulous city …ensure UBC is one of your stops along the way. It’s a genuine gem, and well worth the stop!
