Oldest Real Estate Brokerage In North America Helps to Cleans Up Local River In Parksville, BC

On July 6, 2016 a group of REALTORS® from the Pemberton Holmes Real Estate office in Parksville, British Columbia hosted a riverside clean up in the small community of San Pareil.  The area is often home to transient campers along the river, and the volunteers spent the morning removing litter and left behind items from the water and the surrounding grounds.

"Taking an active role in our communities is one of the best opportunities we have to give back to our clients, our neighbours and our families.  Here at Pemberton Holmes a real estate agent is more than just a person to purchase and list your home through." emphasizes Pemberton Holmes Managing Broker, Kim Leslie Young.

In attendance at the estuary clean up with Kim Leslie Young were REALTORS® Sandy Macrae and Michael Eisenrigler, as well as office administrator Kim Gray and her seven year old son, Adam.  Monika Marguerite Lux of Oceanside Island Photography was on hand to assist in the litter removal as well as to photograph the efforts.

The Parksville office is one of twelve Pemberton Holmes offices on Vancouver Island and the Gulf Islands, and opened in January 2016.   This is the first of many planned community-based projects for the small office as they embrace their mission to help protect the water and improve the environmental quality.
