WAYNE GERMAINE – OWNER / REALTOR®
One would be hard pressed to find a more enthusiastic advocate for the town of Nelson than Wayne Germaine.
Raised in Nelson, Wayne has been an active participant in this community since his youth, involved in sports, fundraisers and other community ventures.
Wayne has garnered a number of awards during his twenty four years as a Realtor©, many of which are related to his profession, including several ‘Kootenay Real Estate Board’ awards, while others have been in recognition of his generous community service. He has served two terms as President of the Nelson & District Chamber of Commerce and chaired both Nelson’s centennial and millennium celebrations in 1997 and 2000, respectively.
Wayne is respected by his peers, colleagues and, most of all, his clients. He is known as a dependable, straightforward, efficient and knowledgeable Realtor© who makes himself readily available to his clients and co-workers. He takes pride in going the extra mile to get the job done, striving for optimal outcomes for all parties concerned and it is upon this work ethic and commitment to service that his solid reputation is founded.
When not taking care of his business and his clients, Wayne can often be found at the baseball field, running along Nelson’s waterfront pathways, or out and about with his family.
“We have known Wayne Germaine for a long time. He is an active member of this community as well as an experienced Realtor who has lived and worked here for many years. Wayne is always professional in his presentation … he consistently kept us informed about what was going on with our sale and was always available if we had questions or concerns. He is straightforward, honest and reliable and he gets the job done. Since the successful sale of our property we have recommended him to several other property owners.”

“As first-time home buyers, we were hoping to find a realtor who not only had many years of experience but who also knew Nelson and the surrounding area as well as we did. We found all that and more with Wayne. From beginning to end, Wayne was extremely dedicated in helping us find our perfect first home. We were particularly interested in looking at rural properties and Wayne happily drove several kilometres from his office even on weekends to show us places that we were interested in. Regardless of his schedule or other commitments, Wayne never rushed us or made us feel as if we were taking up too much of his time with questions – he truly gave us his full attention and care each time we met. Wayne’s building and construction knowledge was an added bonus as he, without hesitation, would point out important aspects (good or bad) of the properties that we could have overlooked. When the perfect home did come on the market, Wayne’s many years of experience really showed and his advice through the offer process was invaluable. We will be forever grateful to Wayne and his office staff at Valhalla Path Realty for not only helping us to successfully find our perfect home, but for the genuine care and attention they displayed throughout the entire process.”
