I was born and raised in the United Kingdom and Italy and moved to South Africa in 1976 where I spent 14 years. I moved with my Husband and family to Canada in 1991 and became a Canadian citizen in 1996. Since then I have lived in 3 of this beautiful country's provinces; Newfoundland, Saskatchewan and British Columbia. Like many people, after travelling the world I have found my permanent home on spectacular Vancouver Island.
I have a Bachelor of Arts Degree and a Diploma in Accounting. I am a fully licensed Real Estate Representative and a Certified Home Stager and Interior Re-designer. I am a certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist and a Member of the Million Dollar Guild as well as the recipient of the Royal LePage Chairman's Club Award, Top 1% in Canada and Top 10 in British Columbia. I have worked in Advertising, Accounting, Sales and Marketing as well as several volunteer Fundraising positions. Having bought, sold and invested in Real Estate on 3 different continents, and as a top producer since I started my Real Estate career, I am well qualified to help you with all your real estate needs. Buying a home or an investment property is one of the biggest decisions we make and I believe that every Real Estate decision should be an educated and well considered one. Whether you are moving House, Province, or Country I will provide detailed market information and guide you through the process. I look forward to helping you find your 'Dream Home'.

I was born and raised in Terrace, BC. Having completed my Bachelor of Arts degree at McGill University, I then went on to pursue my love of theatre in England where I studied classical acting at LAMDA and performed in multiple shows including Sam Mendes’ international hit production of Richard III at both the Old Vic in London and BAM in New York. I also have 8 years of Sales and Customer Service experience with UK-based tech companies Approved Index and MVF Global, winner of the ‘Sunday Times Best Companies to Work For’ and whose platform helps ambitious businesses grow by delivering high volumes of new customers.
My wife, Roanna, and I returned to Canada in 2014 and during this time I worked with video game developer, Ubisoft, in Toronto. It was on purchasing our first home that I was bitten by the property bug and decided to become a Realtor. The onset of a global pandemic, the birth of our daughter and a burning desire to live closer to home resulted in the Phillips family coming to Vancouver Island.
I’m proud to join the ranks of Royal LePage Parksville-Qualicum Beach’s excellent group of professionals, working with Karen Kenyon’s Dream Homes Vancouver Island Group. With intimate knowledge of the Nanaimo and Oceanside areas — my family have been locals here for over 15 years — I’m ready to assist with your property needs. And if you’re looking to escape from the city like my family was, then let me be the first to introduce you to the wonders of ‘The Island’. I used to come here just for visits, and now it would seem I’m staying for a lifetime.
