Sophia Briggs | PREC

Sophia has lived in Victoria her whole life, growing up in James Bay, Oak Bay and Fairfield. She loves living on the island and couldn’t think of any place she would rather be in all of Canada!

Sophia began her real estate career in 2007 at the tender age of 21, and has never looked back. By 2010 she was breaking industry records, and in 2019 she chose to open up her own office located in Oak Bay. Sophia really isn’t afraid to ruffle some feathers when going to bat for you.

Sophia lives in the District of Saanich with her husband Andrew and baby boy, Oscar as well as their three dogs Marly, Emma and Penelope, who appear regularly on our social media. She loves walking the pups on nearby hiking trails or visiting beaches with them in tow. Sophia and her husband Andrew Wade are avid travellers with a laundry list of places they wish to visit, both near and far! They are excited to introduce Oscar to their love of Traveling.
 In particular, Sophia is passionate about health and fitness, cooking, quality red wine, and the occasional round of golf when the weather and her busy schedule allows for it. These two love hosting family and friends for dinner in (often up to 30 people!), and when it comes to cooking she really has a special gift–though she hasn’t mastered the baking world quite yet. Be sure to say hi to Sophia if you catch her out and about–she loves meeting new people and always has time to chat with you about your real estate needs!

Nancy Stratton | REALTOR®

Nancy Stratton is an experienced real estate professional with a passion for helping clients find their dream homes. While Nancy began her real estate career in Edmonton, she and her husband Tom made a move to the picturesque city of Victoria, where they continued their successful journey in the real estate industry. Nancy immersed herself in the local real estate market and continued to provide top-notch service to their clients.

During their time in Victoria, Nancy and Tom embraced the coastal lifestyle, exploring the beautiful beaches and even learning to sail. Their furry companion, Finlay, was a constant companion on their adventures. However, the lure of Edmonton's vibrant real estate market and the opportunity to spend more time with their large family proved irresistible.

With Nancy's extensive knowledge of the Edmonton real estate market and her genuine passion for helping clients, she is the ideal choice for anyone looking to buy or sell property in the area. Her years of experience, combined with her warm and personable approach, make her an excellent resource for navigating the real estate landscape and finding the perfect home.

Despite their move back to Edmonton, Nancy remains a licensed Realtor in the province of British Columbia. This means she brings with her a unique perspective and a valuable network of connections from both Victoria and Edmonton. Nancy's dedication to her craft is further evidenced by her continued affiliation with the esteemed Real Estate team, a testament to her commitment to excellence.

Rebecca Barritt | REALTOR®

Finding the right home isn’t simply about owning a shelter–it reflects and shapes the story of your life.

Beginning her career in Social Work, Rebecca learned to dig deep and uncover people’s diverse needs, wants, and constraints, collaborating with folks to find ways to attain these goals! She understands that families really need to feel “at home”–to love where they live and sense a good “fit” with their surroundings. Sometimes, this can hinge on walkability, walk-in closets, or wide-open space on all sides, but whatever it is she will always help you get there.

Hailing from picturesque Rossland, British Columbia, Rebecca put down roots in Victoria in 2001. She lives happily with her husband and two children, and is often preoccupied doing many of the things she’s always loved: working, running, being a mom, brushing up on her classical piano skills, or sitting in her new favourite corner of the house drinking coffee and enjoying her garden.

We’ve been living in a time of uncertainty and complex emotions for over a year, coping with wine, chocolate cake, or burgers and beer (as the case may be), but along with the team at Coast Living Collective, Rebecca is working hard as ever helping her clients navigate their way to their real estate goals!

Erin Smith | REALTOR®

Born and raised in Ontario, Erin made her way to the west coast on a whim in 2009. Residing in Vancouver, Erin visited Victoria only a couple of times before purchasing her first home and embracing the island life. With her Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Rugby, in tow, Erin leads an active lifestyle and spends her free time running the picturesque trails of Greater Victoria.

Erin enjoys the many culinary treasures the island has to offer and has developed a deep appreciation for fine wine. Hosting her friends and family is one of her favorite pastimes and allows her to showcase her sense of humor and outgoing, energetic personality. Erin values maintaining strong personal and professional relationships above all else.

With an accomplished background in competitive sports, Erin understands the importance of discipline, healthy competition and embraces any challenge. As a competitive gymnast for almost two decades, her experience has shaped her into the ambitious and devoted professional she is today.

Erin chose Victoria as the city in which to embark on her lifelong passion for real estate. Her sound knowledge of the Greater Victoria real estate market and her continuous, up-to-date research of changing trends lends well to her success as an Agent. Coming from a successful career in Sales and Marketing, she is skilled at tailoring strategies to meet and exceed the expectations of her clients. With confidence and experience in difficult negotiations, Erin is committed to finding clients the home of their dreams and closing the deal.
