About the Powell River Office
Nestled on the Northern Sunshine coast, Powell River is on the doorstep of both Vancouver and Vancouver Island. With nature and adventure at every turn, this beautiful hidden gem is bursting with opportunities.
Many people describe the coastal city of Powell River as “paradise”. Placed within a lush temperate rainforest along the Salish Sea, Powell River's moderate climate is the envy of most Canadians cities that suffer through a cold and harsh winter; the winter season in Powell River is mild with temperatures rarely below freezing. This blessing affords residents an abundance of world-class outdoor recreation opportunities year-round.
Located in the Traditional Territories of the Tla’amin First Nation, Powell River has the coastal mountains in its backyard and the ocean on its doorstep. The community provides a wonderful mixture of world class arts, culture, recreation, heritage, festivals and the best in education, health care and infrastructure. All these things and more have drawn many urbanites to Powell River’s shores to build a new life in a safe and comfortable environment that offers the best of British Columbia and Canada.
Previously living in North Vancouver, where the traffic was crazy and life was fast-paced, had taken a toll mentally on Austyn and her family. Deciding to make the move to beautiful Powell River was one of the best decisions they’ve made. Having vacationed on the Sunshine Coast for years, now being able to live in paradise where you can work and raise your family is a dream come true.
With a background in automotive sales, Austyn was looking to make a career change into Real Estate. She knew she was looking to join an independent brokerage that wouldn’t have red tape restricting her like previous corporations had. She researched the Forbes family & 460 Realty, and knew it was the right fit.
Having recently moved to Powell River herself, Austyn has a unique understanding of the excitement, fears and anxieties that go along with buying from a distance or sight-unseen. Her skills and abilities to assist clients completely during the largest purchase of their life shine through, which make Austyn a fantastic fit for all types of buyers and sellers.
When she isn’t working, you can find Austyn swimming, skating and finding new spots to explore with her husband, two kids and dog. She loves learning new languages and seeing how many plants she can keep alive (she does NOT have a green thumb).
