About Monika Holst
Monika has called Nanaimo "Home" since the age of six. In the course of growing up on Vancouver Island and graduating from Nanaimo District Secondary School, she gained a deep appreciation for the community and the natural beauty of the area. Her appreciation of Vancouver Island has led to an intimate knowledge of the amazing towns and cities along the coastline and the lifestyle of the many outdoor activities. While watching her father (Marten Holst) run a successful real estate business in Nanaimo and the Saanich Peninsula, Monika felt her passion to be a realtor early in life. Proudly carrying on the Holst legacy, she became licensed in 1995 working alongside her father. In the course of her career, she has learned the real estate industry inside-out and from many perspectives.
Monika is an expert in real estate relationships from her experience as a real estate conveyancer in a law firm and her time as an office manager and senior conveyancer in a real estate brokerage. Combined with her extensive sales experience as a licensed realtor, Monika has unique and impressive values to offer to her clients. Monika chose to join The Neal Estate Team as their Central Island Specialist so that she could leverage her value to her clients to the absolute maximum. She is backed by an extensive administrative team, a massive realtor network, and proven systems that have sold over 5,000 homes.
When Monika is not actively going above and beyond for her clients, she enjoys spending quality time with her family and friends, exploring Vancouver Island’s healthy outdoor activities, photography, fitness, and travelling. Having moved back to Nanaimo, Monika is excited to engage with her community, rekindle old friendships, make new connections, and continue providing exceptional service to her clients.
