Julien Prevost is at the forefront of the next generation of real estate professionals poised to lead the industry for years to come. Educated, energetic, tech savvy, and a genuinely great guy to be around, Julien is the right choice to help you buy or sell your next home. As a member of the Jahelka Real Estate Group, he shares the team vision for providing clients with exceptional client service experience and strategic foresight at every step along the way.
As an avid investor himself, Julien’s understanding of the real estate opportunities in Nanaimo is both dynamic and vast. His local knowledge and diverse experience are what sets him apart having lived in many Nanaimo homes, from charming character houses downtown to calm and quiet north end neighbourhoods. Julien strongly believes there is enormous opportunity in Nanaimo and cites that one of the most rewarding aspects of his career is helping clients discover the impact Nanaimo real estate can have not only on their lifestyle, but ultimately on their financial future. Approachable, hardworking, responsive and backed by a team of some of the most forward thinking and knowledgeable professionals in the industry, working with Julien will ensure that your next real estate transaction is both smooth and seamless.
After graduating with an economics degree from the University of Victoria, Julien started his professional career in financial services. His role on the other side of the desk helped him hone his investment skills and garner the ability to understand his clients’ financial needs. This is where he uncovered his passion for helping people realize their investment potential (both in real estate and others areas). He saw firsthand that buying or selling a home will be among the biggest investments of someone’s life and realized that real estate was where he wanted to take his career and shaped a strategy to get there. Several years later he landed a robust consulting role that worked directly with realtors to develop their online marketing techniques. Julien was able to leverage his investment knowledge and mentor some of the top real estate agents in the country. He worked alongside them to develop cutting edge marketing plans and sales strategies. This role was the perfect preceding step for the next phase in his career with the Jahelka Real Estate Group, and one that will tremendously impact Julien’s ability to maximize exposure for his listings, ultimately maximizing the net return for his clients.
Away from the office, when Julien isn’t busy helping his clients buy and sell Nanaimo homes, you can typically find him outside exploring the abundance of different trails, mountains, and viewpoints that Vancouver Island has to offer (…he’s even happy to share a few secret spots). Alternatively, after a long day out on tour, Julien can often be found down at Bowen park for a quick game of disc golf to wind down the day. Being the energetic and social guy that he is, he’s always on the go.
We had the best experience with Julien Prevost as our realtor when we moved from Montreal to buy a house in Nanaimo. he was 100% engaging in explaining all aspects and elements of the transaction, and what to expect from beginning to end. He was also very professional in helping us to intelligently negotiate the details of the offer of purchase and had ideas that we would never have thought of otherwise. Julien showed us all the great little family run restaurants in central Nanaimo to eat at that we would never have found which was a great help as we were arriving from out of town. We had to return to Montreal and were not able to be at the house for the building inspection so Julien was there on our behalf and kept us informed every step of the way. Julien is a good negotiator, extremely competent and thoughtful in all aspects of the buying and selling process. He will always be our realtor in the Nanaimo area from now on.

The home buying process can be particularly daunting. Julien Prevost from Jahelka Real Estate Group was absolutely outstanding from the initial meeting to handing over the keys! He had great insight to provide us with regarding the homes we were viewing, what to look for and what may require additional attention from professionals. Throughout the process, Julien kept in constant contact to keep us in the loop as to what was going on with both the market and our purchase deal. I appreciate that Jahelka Real Estate Group has donated $1000 of their commission from the sale to build a home in a developing country! I would highly recommend Julien to anyone looking to buy or sell their home!

Julien sold my house for me recently and I was extremely impressed by his professionalism and knowledge. He made sure that everything was in place before he listed the house, and when it was finally ready, my house sold that very day and I received multiple offers over the listed price. I credit Julien with facilitating this sale in such a timely matter and he made sure that I knew exactly what was happening at all times. I would not hesitate to recommend Julien and the Jahelka team!

We had a great experience working with Julien to buy our new house / studio in Nanaimo. We were looking for a place that we could rebuild to our taste with a central location with an easy access for my clients. We were moving from a slower market to this market which is moving so quickly and we needed an agent who would look after our interests. We found what we were looking for and we were able to obtain the property, thank you to Julien and the entire team of Jahelka Group. We have had a great experience working with you.

Julien and the Jahelka group were a pleasure to work with! We were a little nervous about starting the search for our first home, but the entire experience was a breeze. The website and saved searches were amazing, Julien reached out to us when we indicated interest in viewing homes (which took the apprehension of finding a realtor away) and he was beyond accommodating every step of the way. A big thank you to Julien and the entire Jahelka real estate group for making our first purchase an enjoyable one.

Working with Julien was a great experience! I was a first time home buyer and also very new to Nanaimo from Vancouver. He took me to many places urging me to take my time to make sure I would be happy. I was informed of what to look for in a house and area the house was in. I have already and will always recommend Julien to anyone who is even just interested in looking for a home. Thank you very much, Julien!

Julien Prevost was really great to work with! Very knowledgeable about each home he showed me, figured out my likes and dislikes and catered the house hunt accordingly. He contacted some good quality home inspectors for my furnace and home. Julien made the experience less overwhelming.
