A cycle-friendly community in the Oak Bay area near Victoria, British Columbia inspired organizers from Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty to arrange bicycle tours of homes for sale.
The Realtors® recently joined two-wheel tours of properties where new listings in the area were visited to allow agents to provide feedback and learn about the homes.
Typically done by car, not only were the bicycle tours more environmentally friendly, but participants found them to be easier too. Rather than parking six or seven vehicles at each stop, they simply pedaled to each destination and wheeled up to flip down a kickstand or rest their wheels in a handy spot.
“The feedback from the Realtors® was terrific, said Bill Ethier, president and managing broker for Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty in Victoria. “On Sept. 11 we ventured out on another tour of the Fairfield area of Victoria and will start up the initiative once again in the spring once the winter weather passes”
