John Nguyen has been involved with real estate and development in British Columbia for over ten years. His enthusiasm and passion for bringing out the best in everything he does is clearly reflected in the development of The Marinaside Resort, a high-quality and striking development where design integrity and creative thinking in development and implementation combine to improve and enhance the landscape.

Growing up in Vancouver, John started out as a real estate agent and shortly after, he became involved in joint ventures with homebuilders, purchasing homes for renovation or new construction and selling these properties thereafter. In 2006, he relocated to Nanaimo in search of a bigger challenge, and bought 8 acres of land to construct a 2.6 million dollar land subdivision, successfully subdividing it into 30 building lots. In the spring of 2008, he sold the project for over 4.6 million dollars to real estate investors.

Later that year, John purchased an entire land and derelict marina on Stewart Avenue in Nanaimo. In January 2009, he completed rebuilding the derelict marina into a 4.5 million dollar first class marina facility with more than 100 moorage slips catering to meticulous and passionate boat owners. Phase 2 of the development was completed in 2012 consist of an oceanfront restaurant, a boat brokerage, a waterfront walkway, and 21 luxurious two-bedroom resort condominiums fronting the ocean, all of which is now home to The Marinaside Resort.

With the vast knowledge and experience he has gained from understanding the needs of home buyers and sellers right down to the construction of any home or development, John ensures that everything he builds is well-designed, well-engineered and built to last.

"I personally love the challenge of delivering something special, over and above the ordinary – unique, exciting high-end projects that make each neighborhood we build in a beautiful place to call home."
