A cycle-friendly community in the Oak Bay area near Victoria inspired organizers from Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty to arrange a bicycle tour of homes for sale.
About eight Realtors joined the two-wheel tour of properties where new listings in the area were toured to allow sales reps to provide feedback and learn about the homes.
Typically done by car, not only was the bicycle tour more environmentally friendly, but participants found it easier too. Rather than parking six or seven vehicles at each stop, they simply pedaled to each destination and rested their wheels in a handy spot.
“The feedback from the Realtors was terrific,” says Bill Ethier, president and managing broker for Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty. “We are already planning a second bike tour in September and will start up the initiative once again in the spring once the winter weather passes.”
