Steve Cartner & Five Sails Realty

This is me

A veteran of the Whistler real estate market, I have been assisting my clients with their real estate needs since we moved to the resort in 1997. The move was a huge change for us as a family, moving from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong to the rather more laid back mountain life here in beautiful British Columbia. But we settled in quickly, recognizing we had made the right choice. We are grateful that our two daughters have enjoyed the experience of growing up in a small, diverse and welcoming community, while Wendy and I have embraced the challenge of being the first in our families to move to Canada.

I have actually had a successful real estate career since 1989. Prior to the move to Whistler I was working in the commercial sector, spending many years with the Vancouver and Hong Kong offices of Colliers International. And, interesting to some, during the 1980’s I was a Detective Inspector with The Royal Hong Police and spent a couple of years as a private investigator.

I’ve seen a lot of the world, both as a tourist and in a consultancy capacity. As examples, I have spent many months working on sales and marketing teams in resort real estate projects in The Turks and Caicos Islands, Mauritius, The Philippines, Dubai and Colorado. More recently, I have also been engaged as a consultant to assist with the master planning and design of Secret Garden, the host location for the 2022 Beijing Winter Olympics.

Happy to chat further if you would like to know more – sharing a beverage on a Whistler Village patio with a potential new client is always welcomed!

This is my company

Five Sails Realty is a boutique real estate company with offices in Whistler and Vancouver. I started the company in 2018 and have plans to build the company to 35 Realtors by the end of 2022.

We are not associated with a franchise or “big brand”, preferring to give our Realtors the freedom to operate their business however they wish, so long as they conform to all provincial regulations. As the sole owner and Managing Broker I oversee all transactions with the assistance of a small administration and conveyancing team.

Everything we do is digital and we rely entirely on electronic software to run the back-end of our business. Efficiency and prompt and accurate delivery of services to our clients and our Realtors is our number one goal.
