Carlee Jahelka * Personal Real Estate Corporation
An entrepreneur at heart, Carlee has always viewed the world with a unique perspective, questioning the status quo and continually looking for opportunities to provide a better approach. Carlee recognized early on that Real Estate would be the career path for her, as it offered an unparalleled opportunity to positively affect the lives of her clients by providing effective guidance, advice and counsel throughout the buying and selling process. Looking to expedite the learning curve and gain insight into industry best practices, Carlee carved out a strategic career path over the past number of years.
Consistently ranked among North America’s top performing Real Estate markets, Carlee decided Vancouver was the ideal place to fast track her development and she was offered the unique opportunity to join the top team in Remax’s Vancouver Crest Westside office at the level of Partner, an honour rarely presented to a rookie Realtor. Working alongside some of Vancouver’s top Realtors, Carlee quickly established a name for herself as she learned the sophisticated strategies and tactics used to effectively market properties to the right buyers, close transactions quickly, and most importantly to ensure that the process was as stress free as possible for her clients.
Having grown up in Nanaimo, Carlee hoped that one day she would be able to return home and experience the quality of life that only the Island affords. With her career taking off in Vancouver and having gained substantial experience in the residential Real Estate market, when the opportunity presented itself to move into Commercial Real Estate and work alongside and learn the business from arguably Vancouver Island’s top Commercial Realtor, Carlee viewed this as a tremendous opportunity that could not be passed up. During her tenure, Carlee co-managed a portfolio of approximately 125 listings, which allowed her to develop expertise in commercial sales & leasing, industrial sales & leasing, income property investing, business sales and acquisitions, as well as significant experience working with foreign investors, where she worked alongside immigration consulting firms to help facilitate transactions through the Provincial Nominee Program (PNP) program.
Having established a strong foundation in the industry and recognizing that residents of Nanaimo and Central Vancouver Island deserve a higher level of service excellence and marketing expertise from their Real Estate professional, Carlee knew that the time was right and she founded the Jahelka Real Estate Group with the primary objective of establishing a high performance team providing specialized, Real Estate advisory services in the Residential, Luxury, and Commercial & Investment segments of the market. Understanding that each client has a unique set of circumstances, expectations and requirements, Carlee takes a goal based approach where she starts with the end in mind and helps clients determine how Real Estate can be effectively used to help them achieve their optimal lifestyle. Carlee prides herself on her accessibility and commitment to exceptional service, and is committed to building long-term relationships with clients where she will be relied on as their trusted Real Estate advisor for years to come.
Away from the office, Carlee lives a purpose driven life. Having travelled to more than 40 countries, she is in the process of co-founding a charity that will serve to facilitate the transfer of wealth from the first to the third world and help build sustainable communities in developing nations.
