Jeff Hume + Team
Meet the Team
It’s no secret – locals know Whistler best. With generations of Hume’s making the trek to Whistler since the 1960’s – it’s hard to surpass Jeff’s insider knowledge of the place he calls home.
Growing up surrounded by world-class mountains, Jeff took full advantage of the outdoors, which soon elevated his passion for skiing into competition, earning him a spot on the Canadian Alpine Ski Team for nine years, racing internationally. This combination of sport, perseverance, and lifelong forged friendships naturally set his path to becoming a successful local real estate agent in the #1 ski resort in North America.
Whistler is full of personality, and Jeff is no exception. One of his favourite parts of being a realtor is showing you the Whistler lifestyle. Yes, his World Cup circuit racing days may be behind him, but that doesn’t stop him from enjoying some powder turns with clients or hitting the greens – discussing your real estate needs isn’t always confined to the walls of a boardroom. His ability to combine professionalism, outstanding service and hard work while making it a fun, enjoyable process is the reason his clients become new friends. Just like the ski lines he raced, his fast pace and persistence will be your edge in this niche real estate market. He prides himself on being honest and professional, with sharp attention to detail to maintain his broad knowledge of the local real estate market and its position in global investments – just ask his growing referrals list that spans from locals to international clients. Having a diverse network within the ski community, Jeff thrives on making your buying and selling process a positive experience from start to finish. Jeff’s competitive nature in the real estate market has allowed him to reach Platinum Performance status at The Whistler Real Estate Company while consistently being recognized as a Medallion Club Member of the Greater Vancouver Real Estate Board.
His passion for this vibrant community goes beyond its streets and crescents. Jeff finds it rewarding to give back to the skiing community by coaching and volunteering. Both sport and family play a huge role in his life, which is why Jeff, and his wife, are very excited to be raising a family of their own in Whistler, where three generations now reside. Apart from being an ultimate negotiator, skier, and family man, you can often find him captaining his boat and exploring British Columbia’s stunning coastline.

After 10 years as General Manager of the Whistler Mountain Ski Club and Administrator/Event Planner of Whistler Cup International Children’s Race, Lynne brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the table. Those of you who know her from her years of dedicated work at the ski club will be happy to know that she brings the same passion and drive to her career in real estate. As a team member since 2009, you can expect Lynne to go above and beyond to make sure every transaction runs smoothly by providing outstanding service and attention to every detail. Her straightforward, honest approach and pride in her work will ensure the highest level of service to all of our clients. Lynne and her husband, Rick, enjoy the mountains in the winter and Harley touring in the summer. It is a real treat to have 4 generations living here in Whistler.
We have had four real estate transactions in Whistler, and Jeff was the master of each of them. He and Lynne successfully managed these transactions with efficiency, thoughtfulness, professionalism and friendly care. Whether we were in Whistler, Vancouver, or out of the country, Jeff and Lynne stayed in touch with us and looked after our real estate needs. They make a terrific team – one that you will appreciate working with when it comes time to buy or sell.

Huge thanks for all your hard work, help and guidance in buying my first home! Jeff and Lynne were extremely knowledgeable, attentive and professional which allowed me to find a place within my budget and at a perfect location. Couldn’t have done it without you guys!!
We really enjoyed working with you. Your responsiveness to any phone call or enquiry was immediate and you provided professional support and references that made the entire purchasing and closing process seamless. Thank you! We are looking at purchasing another single family home in Whistler so if you hear of a good opportunity, please let us know.

We knew what we wanted, the price we wanted to pay and the location in Whistler and let Jeff know that. Jeff listened well. He showed us some listings in the area we thought we wanted to be in, then showed us an area we had never considered. On the first day we found the perfect place, which we now own. Jeff understood better than we did, what we wanted. Jeff’s long history with Whistler, hard work and responsiveness, along with that of his very capable Assistant Lynne, allowed our complicated purchase to succeed. He was there from beginning to end. We would highly recommend Jeff Hume.

Julie and I are very happy with the sale of our Whistler house, 2773 Coyote Place. Coyote place is a special part of Whistler, 15-30 minutes closer to Vancouver than most Whistler locations, 3 minutes to free Creekside parking for skiing and on a quiet, family-oriented cul-de-sac. Jeff and Lynne Hume fully understood the advantages of Coyote Place and when you package the location with a superbly built RDC FINE Homes cabinet quality house you have a very special environment in which to live. Jeff and Lynne understood this immediately and worked as a team on the marketing strategy to present 2773 in the most attractive way. This included refinishing outside and inside, sprucing up the land scaping and assuring all technical aspects of the house were in good working order. In addition, a video was created with Bob Deeks, the builder, featuring the special qualities of the house and a picture show was available on the internet. Working with Jeff and Lynne was very harmonious and included ongoing advice on the Whistler real estate market and the pricing strategy most likely to attract serious buyers. The house received a solid offer in September some 75 days after being on the market which for a house of this size and value was very reassuring. It has been a rewarding and happy experience working with Jeff and Lynne who are both quietly very professional in their approach to real estate sales.

Now that the chaos of closing, the paper work and moving is all over, I would like to thank you for your services in regard to selling our residence in Alpine Meadows. Although we had some challenges along the way, I must say I am very, very satisfied with the end result. I now understand and respect the principles and strategy that you initially proposed much better, and although I had my own ideas at the beginning, it was coming back to your strategy and sticking with it that eventually achieved success.
I truly appreciated your dedication and hard work throughout the process, and particularly how you were able to engage the buyer to cooperate and get us to closing so very quickly considering the time constraints I was under. Thank you also for the very helpful tips and recommendations of a cleaner and Whistler Alltime Movers who did such a great job packing and moving.
Because it was difficult for me to communicate with you during normal working hours, I very much appreciated your uncomplaining and enthusiastic availability and prompt replies after hours and on weekends. Having had to work all hours and many weekends for most of my own life, I realize how much this can potentially affect one’s family life. Thanks should also go to your wife for being supportive, understanding and accepting this inevitable reality.
I was referred to Jeff about 5 years ago when I first came to Whistler and started looking at properties. He very quickly gained my confidence not only because of all the time and effort he put in to satisfy our demands but more in how he and Lynne always put our interests first. They were very patient with us throughout the whole process and not only did they find us a great home for the family but they also found two more investment properties that I have purchased and done very well with so far.
After buying three properties with Jeff and Lynne, we just sold our first and I was again very impressed with their perseverance, competence and professionalism throughout the whole process. I can very confidently recommend Jeff and Lynne, whether you are looking for your dream home, cottage getaway or an investment property. You will not be disappointed!

Jeff - you blew us away. We were amazed at how hard you and your partner Lynne worked to ensure we saw so many great chalets to choose from in Whistler. We love our new cabin here, and if it wasn't for you pushing so hard to show us the 18 places (ya, I know overkill on our part) but seeing them all gave us the confidence to put an offer in that next day. We're thrilled and already enjoying our log chalet with friends every weekend. I'm a raving fan.
We hired Jeff and Lynne to help us buy our Whistler condo. They are a great team who are easy to communicate with and have the local knowledge we were seeking. We would happily use them again!
