I came to Salt Spring Island for a day in 1979 and I’m still here!
This is where my husband, Noel and I chose to raise our family. As my 2 children were growing up I had the privilege of being involved in numerous community activities… Commodore of Sea Capers for 2 years, a founding member of Women for Peace, a fitness instructor for Salty Sweaters and a member or chair of various school committees from Salt Spring Nursery School to Gulf Islands Secondary School. Lately I have been involved with the Lions Club and their Pioneer Village affordable housing project.
I have been a successful realtor in our community since 1989 and have enjoyed working with a wide variety of people from all walks of life. Although all of us like to make money in this business, for me there are other factors more important — honesty, integrity and realism.
If you are a prospective buyer, I’m committed to finding you the property that you want, not what I want to sell you.
If you are a prospective seller, I won’t attempt to seek your listing by overpricing it or bullying you into making a decision you may regret later.
In all aspects of realty, I believe in a no pressure, informative and reliable relationship with those I work with.
“Carol made the scary and stressful process of buying a first home an experience to cherish! Absolutely everything in this process was brand new for us and Carol showed great patience, humour and care in making sure we were comfortable every step of the way. We ended up with a beautiful first home that was just right for us and Carol helped us to get there–never pushing and always leaving us with the feeling that she truly wanted us to find something great and didn’t want us to settle for anything less.
She has a wealth of knowledge about Salt Spring and it’s various neighbourhoods and truly cares about the fabric of this community and the people who wish to make it their home. Carol made the process of searching for our first home enjoyable (many laughs were shared along the way!) and these home-owning newbies couldn’t be happier!”

“Over the years I’ve bought and sold about a dozen properties in B.C. and Ontario; mostly homes, a summer property, a couple of building lots we didn’t build on. Carol is the best agent I’ve worked with.”
“I first met Carol Fowles seven years ago. I needed a Realtor and she was recommended to me. Carol sold that home within six weeks and from then on we have been friends. The qualities I admired in her as a realtor, I admire in our friendship, her integrity, perceptive thoughtfulness, and her quality of honoring her word and commitments. And she is caring.
Carol recently listed the property I now own. It sold two weeks later, My neighbours tell me I have a horseshoe. um…….somewhere, and I’m sure I was lucky – I got fair market value, the money when I wanted it, and good conditions for renting back – but I also know my Realtor gave me sound advice and skillfull guidance. Equally important, I know that Carol is liked and respected by the other Realtors and professionals in this community and I think that makes the process of buying or selling a home much more straightforward.
Carol was recommended to me and I, in turn recommend her to you.”
