Sidney Realtor Jean Dunn recently celebrated 25 years helping people buy and sell homes on the Saanich Peninsula.

Twenty-five years ago, Jean Dunn took her first steps into the world of real estate and hasn’t looked back.

On Feb. 25, she and her co-workers at Royal LePage by the Sea in Sidney, marked her quarter-century milestone. They invited friends, family and clients to their office for a bit of a party.

Dunn originally started in real estate in 1990 with Realty World. She opened an office in 1996 and continued here after the company was bought out in around 2001 by Royal LePage.

Dunn credits her success and longevity in the business to being surrounded by a great team.

“And for me, it has always been about the people,” she said. “I enjoy helping them find their homes.”

Dunn said over those 25 years, there has been a lot of change in Sidney and around the Peninsula. She said she has seen the community grow — and her clients have families of their own. Some of them are even coming back to her today — meaning she could very well go another couple of decades yet.
