Work with a Trusted Victoria REALTOR®
A military relocation can be even more complex than a traditional move. It's not always possible or feasible for buyers to fly across the country to conduct their home search in person. Sometimes, it's necessary to buy a home "sight unseen." If that's the case, you'll want to work with a team that knows their area. Ron Neal has spent his entire life in Victoria, and his team is intimately familiar with the Esquimalt area, helpful local services, and community highlights. When you have a family or a spouse, it is especially important that your move goes smoothly. We can help you find a home you love near great schools for your kids and quality work opportunities for your spouse. When you become one of our clients, your real estate goals become our goals, and we'll work with you every step of the way to ensure that your transition is as simple as possible. Since Ron Neal started in 2001, he's helped more than 4,000 buyers find new homes, and he's eager to help more families and individuals undertake the exciting process of buying a home.

Explore CFB Esquimalt & The Greater Victoria Area
Esquimalt is home to Canada's Pacific Coast naval base. Employing more than 6,000 people, this is one of the biggest bases on the west coast. With the CF Fleet School and the Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical Warfare School in the area there are plenty of opportunities for education in addition to employment opportunites. The community of Esquimalt is very supportive of its military families, and residents will find that services like the Military Family Resource Centre (MFRC) are eager to help military families through every stage of their relocation.
There is no shortage of places to live too. Many residents opt to live within the township of Esquimalt and enjoy family-friendly living close to their base. Others opt to live across the bridge in the heart of Downtown Victoria where the city's vibrant nightlife congregates and shopping is at its finest. Buyers on a budget will find that there are a wealth of affordable, recently constructed condos in the communities of Colwood and Langford. Others still, enjoy rural-style properties in Metchosin.
