Michele Courtney and Bill Anglin, of the Courtney & Anglin Real Estate Group in the Comox Valley, would like to invite you to be part of a very special fundraising event. The 2nd Annual Valley Vonka YANA Fundraiser festivities kicked off on April 5th and will continue until April 26th. The theme is chocolate (lots of it!) and during the month of April, Courtney & Anglin will be selling more than Comox Valley homes. They’ll also be selling one hundred chocolate bars!
This year’s campaign is Valley Vonka and the Hot Chocolate Factory and Courtney & Anglin is honoured to be this year’s title sponsor for the event. Until April 26th, two thousand chocolate bars will be available for sale throughout the community for the suggested donation of $5 per bar. Five of those bars will contain golden tickets with prizes ranging in value from $1000 to $3500. Prizes include a family ski pass to Mt. Washington, a family day at Oh Spa, dinner at Locals Restaurant, a weekend getaway to Ucluelet at Black Rock, as well as gift certificates from the Kingfisher and Crown Isle Resort. 100% of donations go directly to YANA. You’ll find the chocolate bars at our Courtney Anglin office, the YANA office, as well as these locations.
This year’s event also includes a drawing contest for the kids with the delicious prize of a year of chocolate. Four editions of The Comox Valley Record will feature a colouring contest of our new character created by local artist Lisa Joan of Isla Designs.
YANA is a community organization specializing in improving access to healthcare for children and expecting mothers in the Comox Valley. YANA Comox Valley provides accommodations and funding to Comox Valley families who need to travel outside of the valley to access medical services for children and expecting mothers. Besides the Valley Vonka Fundraiser, the charity also sponsors the YANA Kids’ Clutter Sale, Consignment for YANA, and many other events aimed at raising money for the Comox Valley community.
Courtney & Anglin is pleased to be this year’s title sponsor and is not just any real estate group. For Michele and Bill, volunteerism just comes naturally. Whether it’s working with seniors or helping to relocate military families, giving back to the community is just a way of life for them. Michele Courtney was born and raised right here on the coast and has been selling real estate since 2005. Bill Anglin, an 18-year resident of the valley, is also very active in the community and is currently a volunteer and the vice president of the Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation.
So, indulge. Buy a chocolate bar or two dozen. Who knows? It might just be you saying “ahhh” at the Oh Spa, swooshing down the slopes of Mt. Washington, or spending a weekend at Ucluelet. Who knows, maybe one of those golden tickets is waiting for you right now at the Courtney & Anglin office on Cliffe Avenue.

One of the most exciting things happening in Comox Valley real estate right now is the construction in the new development known as The Ridge. This new neighbourhood is located near the town of Courtenay on Vancouver Island, BC. When completed, The Ridge will be one of the most modern developments in the region, housing 230 residences of all types, including single-family homes, patio homes, duplexes, bungalows, workshops, and carriage homes. This is great news for the Comox Valley, which is already home to approximately 55,000 residents.
The new homes now available at The Ridge offer a number of diverse floor plans which will appeal to every homeowner’s taste without a doubt. Michele Courtney and Bill Anglin of Courtney & Anglin Real Estate Group invite you to a virtual tour of The Ridge to take a look at one of the new building sites.
The Ridge is a fantastic new residential area where homeowners can choose from mountain views or ocean views, both of which abound in this gorgeous setting on the east coast of Vancouver Island. Homes are being constructed with a view toward sustainability and green building, conserving on resources and allowing houses to blend in naturally with the surroundings. The city of Courtenay has its own very progressive plan for sustainability, as evidenced by all construction going on at the Ridge.
Each morning when you walk out the door of one of these gorgeous new homes, you may have to pinch yourself to be sure you haven't just walked into a dream. With endless ocean vistas and panoramic mountain scenery in the background, it just might seem like something too special for everyday reality.
Phased construction at The Ridge
With Phase I and Phase II of construction having already been completed at The Ridge, Phase III is now set to be launched in April or May of 2018. The first phase of construction at the Ridge has all homes already sold out, and a great many of those built during the second phase of construction have now been reserved. During this third phase, a great many more homes of various floor plans and styles will be again offered to prospective buyers who desire to move into the area, and take advantage of all that the Comox Valley region has to offer. Home buyers have come from many different parts of Canada both near and far, including the Comox Valley itself, other parts of Vancouver Island, the Lower Mainland, and British Columbia, Alberta, and Ontario. The appeal of this lovely island and all its scenic wonders, as well as the wealth of family activities available, make it the ideal place for people to settle down and become part of a close-knit picturesque community.
