Chesapeake Shores crews were busy working outside Precision Wealth Management on Thursday afternoon in Parksville.

Filming of Chesapeake Shores takes over downtown Parksville financial offices

The filming of the series in Parksville Qualicum Beach is scheduled to wrap up this week

Precision Wealth Management was the latest location for film crews from Chesapeake Shores.

Owner Cliff Broetz said crews began scouting for a location for an investment banker a while back, and then about three to four weeks ago he said the crew’s location people came to check it out.

“We thought it would be interesting to say yes,” Broetz said.

He added that they didn’t schedule appointments for the day.

“It obviously can’t disrupt business for weeks,” he said, adding that a few hours of filming was easy enough to work around.

Chesapeake Shores producer Matt Drake said it’s important to work with the businesses to make sure everything runs smoothly and to make sure nobody is left feeling like they’re not compensated.

“It’s really important to us, eve more important in a small town,” Drake said, adding that working with local businesses in the region has been a pleasant experience.

Drake said sometimes the crews have had to clarify the exact nature of their work and how they operate within the industry.

“However we have always received a very warm welcome from the business community, and have built some very strong business relationships with a number of local vendors and suppliers,” Drake said.

Broetz said the crew was using his office for the one-day filming location.

“I thought it was because they liked my taste in furniture,” he said with a laugh, adding that all of his office furniture was moved to a room across the hall.

It was a crew member’s parents — who are clients of Precision Wealth Management — that suggested the business would be a good location, according to Broetz.

“Hopefully they come back here (to Precision Wealth) and film some more,” he said. Chesapeake Shores will finish filming the season this week.
