List Your Property - About Waterfront West
"The Dave Koszegi Real Estate Team has been thrilled to work with Waterfront West since its inception. Dave’s recent google + chat with Sharleen Kneeland about waterfront properties on Sproat Lake was highly successful. We can easily attribute a considerable amount of our Sproat Lake business to Waterfront West’s online marketing and social media services. They are always on top of the latest technology and their websites, blog, google+ page, etc. are always an interesting read and contain valuable information for both buyers and agents interested in BC waterfront real estate. They do a phenomenal job of connecting agents and buyers and their marketing services come highly recommended by the Dave Team!"
What is Waterfront West?
Launched by Sharleen Kneeland (Whiteside) in May of 2006, www.waterfrontwest.com is a unique web site offering advertising to sellers of waterfront and water view properties in British Columbia. At Waterfront West, we firmly believe that the future of the internet lies in niche markets and interactivity.

Today, we attract over thousands of visitors/month from places as close as Alberta and as far as Dubai. We have been featured on CBC News, Calgary News at 6 and in newspapers such as The Vancouver Sun, The Edmonton Journal and the Times Colonist. Waterfront West reaches a very targeted market of serious waterfront buyers.
