8X is an independent BC real estate brokerage designed to deliver genuine and non-traditional approaches to property marketing. The 8 in our name is a very strategic number that has deep historical, spiritual, and mathematical roots. 8, 八,捌 offers balance between two sides of the material and immaterial world, which is helpful when we give consideration to both the financial and emotional aspects of each Buyer and Seller. One reason for the number’s popularity is because eight is phonetically similar to the word prosperity, or wealth, in the Chinese language (it’s pronounced “ba” in Chinese and is similar to the Chinese word “fa,” which means prosperous). I believe 8 is more than just a number, but it offers insight in the areas of career, business, finances and authority. It resembles infinity and eternal patterns in the natural world.
The marriage of 8 and X was only natural, in that X’s carry abundant meanings in almost everything we do (math, genetics, sex, spirituality, language). X leads us to a world of unknowns and known. X is the only symmetrical letter in the alphabet. Flip it horizontally, vertically or even diagonally it will remain the same. No matter what life throws at us the infinite patterns of 8X will be with us.
The symbol in our logo is based on the Mystic Knot, which is a feng shui knot symbolizing a long and happy life full of good fortune. In Buddhism, the mystic knot is one of the 8 magical auspicious objects.
