With a personal practice of lifetime learning, Ken has devoted himself to an attitude of always being curious. He loves to serve, and with a 17-year career as a professor at VIU he has a unique combination of business, teaching and community experience. A modest man you would have to dig deep to know he is honored to have a high school in Ghana named after him.
As a Nanaimo REALTOR® Ken Hammer brings this business, teaching and community background to your home buying and selling experience. Ken looks forward to serving you!
2018 was a wonderful year with plenty of real estate activity and several personal adventures. The real estate market continued to be fast-paced throughout most of the year with a few changes to the industry in June (e.g. Disclosure of Representation in Trading Services and banning of Dual Agency). Although listing inventory built up a bit over the year, there continues to be a shortage of well-priced property.
On a personal level, Ken was able to fit in two international trips (one to Ghana for Rotary work and one to Mount Everest Base Camp in Nepal). Ken has been working in Ghana with various partners (e.g. Rotary Clubs, Universities, Schools, NGO’s) for over 10 years. He has been helping with various Rotary projects (e.g. drilling wells, providing schools supplies, building latrines, supplying hospital equipment) and educational programs (e.g. environmental education, vocational training in the prison).
In Nepal Ken was part of the first fundraising expedition to Mount Everest Base Camp in support of rebuilding schools after the devastating earthquake in 2015. The Daybreak Rotary club is planning an annual fundraising expedition to support various projects.
We’re looking forward to another strong year in real estate, especially serving our current and future clients and friends.
