Michele Courtney - PREC
For Michele Courtney, what’s really important is the satisfaction she gets from making a difference in her clients’ lives. “It’s not about transactions,” she says, “it’s about relationships. When I’m working with a client, helping them to buy or sell a home, I have their best interests at heart. How could I not strive to do my best for them?”
Michele was born and raised on the coast, but it was in B.C.’s Cariboo region that she began her real estate career in 2005. While looking for a hobby farm that was perfect for her own family, Michele’s broker was so struck by her energy thoroughness and ability to negotiate he finally convinced the former teacher to give real estate a try.
“Eventually I agreed, and then I fell in love with it,” she recalls. “I think it’s because, like teaching, I get to interact with people every day, and I can draw upon my abilities to communicate, empathize and create understanding.”
Those qualities helped Michele win the “Rookie of the Year” Award from her company and achieve the title of top salesperson for the next four years. Since moving back to island-life and joining the RE/MAX Ocean Pacific Realty team in 2010, she has continually been a top performer, achieving top levels of sales achievement and distinctions along the way.
Michele has earned a reputation for working tirelessly to make each client’s experience a positive one, and going the extra mile to alleviate stress. Michele trained for and achieved the designation of Seniors Real Estate Specialist®. “Moving from the family home to something smaller can be a very emotional time, and there are a lot of questions from the clients and their children,” explains Michele. “It’s my job to help them through this big change in a supportive, professional and compassionate way.”
As a member of Brookfield Global Relocation Service Providers, Michele often works with military and RCMP families whose timelines are often very tight for finding a home or selling it within their allotted time frame for door to door moves. Michele works closely with these sellers and buyers, as she does with all her clients, and handles their timeline challenges with skill.
Michele Courtney understands home & heart are a powerful connection. She puts her own heart into finding just the right connection for her clients.
Michele and her partner Dr. Patrick Johnson love everything about the Comox Valley; the people, the community, the natural beauty and all the outdoor recreation that the valley has to offer. They are grateful to be able to live and work here and enjoy outdoor family time with their daughters Emma, Georgia and Savannah.

Bill Anglin - PREC
Whether you’re buying or selling residential property, investing in a condo, or you’re in the market for commercial property, clear communication is at the core of all great customer service. Really listening to the real estate goals of my clients and making those goals a priority is how Bill brings home buyers and sellers together, to help his clients get the best value for their real estate investment.
Retired from a 25-year career in the Canadian Air Force, Bill is familiar with the unique opportunities and challenges of relocation with timelines that don’t always coincide with optimal real estate market conditions. “I know the challenges of making important home-buying decisions from a distance and I’ve helped many military families at 19 Wing Comox make a smooth transition whether they were moving to or from the Comox Valley”.
Bill is very active in the community and has been involved in community leadership as a Councillor for the City of Courtenay as well as a Comox Valley Regional District Director. He also served as the Vice Chair of the Comox Valley Chamber of Commerce. “These experiences provided me with a comprehensive understanding of the local real estate market, the local economic drivers, as well as the land use and zoning bylaws that influence commercial and residential property values in the Comox Valley”.
As an active volunteer, Bill is currently the President of the Comox Valley Healthcare Foundation, is a Director for the Comox Valley Airport Commission, and serves as a board member for the Sid William's Theatre Society. Bill is also a Director of the United Way Central & North Vancouver Island and Chair of the Comox Valley Destination Marketing Committee. “Through these experiences, I’ve had the opportunity to work with many different members of the community making the Valley a terrific place to live work and play!”.
Bill and his wife Chris have lived in the Comox Valley since 1990 and were drawn to the beauty and diversity of what the area had to offer. After several relocation experiences of their own, the Valley was the community they chose to raise their daughter Stephanie, and they continue to enjoy to this day as proud grandparents to Chase and Cole!

Susie Zacharias - Unlicensed Assistant
Working in real estate has been a part of Susie’s life since 2004. Prior to that, she was busy managing the household with her two young children. Once the kids started school, Susie started the big job search. She was looking for the perfect fit which complemented both her interests and her skill set. It didn’t take long for her to discover that real estate was her niche.
After spending a few years working as a licensed realtor, she felt it was time to work behind the scenes where she could apply her keen insight and attention to detail. “I get excited when the team gets a new listing,” she says. “And I love to help market homes in their best light.” With so many details involved with every real estate transaction, her experience and thoroughness leave Courtney Anglin clients in the best of hands.
Susie was born in Victoria, but moved with her family while she was young to White Rock in the Lower Mainland. Like many others born on the Island, Susie felt like an island girl at heart. She made the big move back to Vancouver Island in 2017 and has been enjoying the lifestyle we all enjoy and love ever since!
The Courtney Anglin Real Estate team is very happy to have Susie on board and we’re sure that you will be impressed by her care and service to our clients!
