Meet Our Team

Guy Litton, Managing Broker on our team, was born in Vancouver, B.C. and moved to Victoria at about age 20. Guy’s first career was that of a meat cutter and manager of an “Olde Fashioned” style butcher shop where the fat little butcher behind the counter gets your daily meals, wrapping it in butcher paper and always giving the kids a wiener or pepperoni stick to keep them occupied while you chose your daily meat cuts. In 1976 Guy moved to Nanaimo and operated his own butcher shop at Beaufort Centre for a number of years. Anyone shopping with Guy would remember him saying “We meat the nicest people”.
In June 1983, Guy left the meat business and joined Bowen Realty as a licensed REALTOR®.“The Bowen Boys” as they were sometimes called, took him under their wing and Guy learned new ways to help people purchase their first home or sell one to move to another. Guy studied for and earned his Real Estate Broker license in 1989. As the real estate industry changed, company names changed and Bowen Realty became RE/MAX of Nanaimo.
About 1992, Guy started his own property management and Realty office and was busily involved in residential real estate management for literally hundreds of rental properties in and around Nanaimo. Guy sold the company in 2006, but he just couldn’t sell himself on leaving the real estate industry.
In Guy’s 32 year real estate and management career, the business of real estate has changed dramatically. Technology now helps buyers and sellers, landlords and tenants view properties online long before viewing them on the street.
Guy came home to RE/MAX of Nanaimo in July 2014 and acts as Managing Broker for the RE/MAX of Nanaimo Property Management division.
If you are a landlord looking for expert management or a tenant seeking a quality rental property, call Guy today at 250-751-1223 or via email at [email protected].
