Coast Realty Group’s realtors are channeling their inner Ty Pennington and offering an Alberni Valley version of a home makeover—exterior edition.

From now until the end of June, people can nominate an Alberni Valley homeowner to win a fresh coat of paint for their home as well as a general landscaping upgrade.

The time and money donated by Coast Realty and its partners will benefit one local family in a meaningful way, said Coast Realty spokesman Chris Fenton.

“We wanted to do something to give back to our community,” said Fenton, who brought the idea for a home makeover back from a company-wide focus group in Nanaimo.

“This fits in with what we do: selling houses.”

The deadline to nominate someone for the home makeover is 1 p.m. on June 30. Nominations can be made in person at the Coast Realty office on Ian Avenue at Johnston Road or by downloading a form at www.albernihome People cannot nominate themselves, Fenton said. Individual homeowners are eligible, but not landlords with tenants.

For more information, please call Coast Realty at 250-723-1800 or e-mail A panel of seven judges will choose a winner based on the general condition of the home and the personal story behind the nomination. The winning story will be made public, he said.
