Get to Know Shannon Gorgichuk
Shannon is a passionate, hard-working REALTOR® dedicated to helping her clients find that special place to call home where their families and lifestyles can flourish. She is also a wife, dog mom of three Boston Terriers, outdoor adventurer, and badass fitness femme.
Shannon grew up in Nanaimo and spent over a decade in Vancouver where she pursued retail management. Her familiarity with the island, along with her experience in management and as an accountant for 5 years has given her valuable insight as a REALTOR® and excellent customer service skills to boot. She elaborates, “Both of these careers gave me experience that I use every day in Real Estate! Understanding accounting helps me understand mortgages and budgets, which are both essential in helping my clients.”
Investing in Her Product – Real Estate
An interesting fact about Shannon: she and her homebuilder husband currently own 11 properties in Nanaimo! She describes how being a property owner has supported her career in real estate: “Owning these properties gives us a lot of experience with the products that I help my clients buy and sell! Every time I buy or sell one of my properties, I gain valuable experience that I can pass on to my clients.”
And her expertise does not stop there. Shannon has also taken courses on new home construction. With her specialization in this area and her connections in the construction industry through her husband, Shannon is equipped with all the right “tools” for helping her clients.

In her spare time, Shannon loves hanging out with her family, working on her physical fitness and wellbeing, and enjoying the great outdoors: “I have 3 Boston Terriers who are FULL of energy, so I always have a good excuse to get outside for long walks. I also enjoy strength training at the gym and long-distance running! My husband and I enjoy camping and boating on the weekends as well! It’s a great way to relax and enjoy all the beautiful nature Vancouver Island has to offer.”
