Megan Vandersluys has called Vancouver Island home most of her life. Born in a logging camp up the North West Coast of BC, her family moved back to the Island in the early 80s. Having grown up in the Ladysmith and Nanaimo area, Megan is knowledgeable of the history of the areas and has first-hand experience attending elementary, high school and university in the Nanaimo area. Her life long experience living in the community is a bonus for newcomers to the area.
Megan attended the University of Victoria, completing a Bachelors of Psychology degree followed by a Masters degree in Counseling Psychology. After spending ten years working in the mental health and counseling field, Megan became a new mom. Now with a growing family, Megan made a career change into real estate.
Real estate has always been an interest of Megan’s, as she has watched her childhood neighborhoods grow and develop over the years. She was encouraged by fellow REALTOR® Elaine Wilkinson to make the career change and after becoming licensed joined the Lindy and Elaine Real Estate team. Having the support of two knowledgable and experienced REALTORS® such as Lindy and Elaine provides Megan’s clients with additional support and years of experience the team can provide.
Megan believes her counseling skills are an asset to her clients, and believes that communication and a trusting relationship with your REALTOR® are as essential to the real estate process as they are to counselling.
In her spare time, Megan loves to spend time enjoying outdoor activities on the Island, taking her young ones on hikes, enjoying local playgrounds and is looking forward to kayaking again when they are bigger!
