I love helping people make their dreams a reality!
When looking to work with a Vancouver Island real estate agent it is critical that you are confident in that agent’s ability. There are different types of real estate agents that specialize in different areas. Some agents focus on listing homes, some focus on working with buyers, while some focus on commercial real estate. It is important that you find a real estate agent that is up to date on the Victoria and area real estate market from a buyer’s perspective.
As a REALTOR® who has been in the real estate business since 2007 I have had experience in all different types of Canadian real estate markets. I have helped over 900 people buy and/or sell since beginning my career so my experience is strong. Much of my business comes from previous clients through their referrals. I am very active in real estate across Canada and I am doing something in the real estate market every day, so this is important as I am up to date on what is currently happening.
I am willing and eager to work with first time home buyers. For first time home buyers is it important to find a real estate agent that is experienced with first time buyers as there can be programs and more available down payment options for you. Some real estate agents can also forget what it is like to be a first time buyer and may not be as patient or understanding as you will tend to have more questions as this is a new experience for you.
Why Hire Kari?
I have extensive experience working with growing families with growing needs, empty nesters as well as buyers looking to purchase revenue property.
I am energetic, enthusiastic and honest. I will work hard to find you the right home in a non-pressure relationship. I am dedicated to my clients and finding them the home that is right for them, not just the house that is there right now.
I have access to the best resources to help you find that perfect property, whether it be for yourself, your family, or as a revenue home. Sometimes I even have access to properties before they come out online.
I will dedicate a lot of time and energy to you as a buyer, therefore I kindly ask that you respect my dedication by agreeing to work only with me and not be using other real estate agents in Victoria to find a home at the same time. If you see a property that is not advertised on the Vancouver Island MLS I can also represent you and your best interests by contacting the sellers directly. If you work with many agents at a time it compromises your confidentiality, so it actually harms your bargaining power as, if you are not under agency with one real estate agent in Victoria and area, every other agent you have been speaking to can disclose personal, financial, and other confidential information. If you work with ONE agent, you are in a client agent relationship therefore that agent must protect your privacy.
Like most other real estate agents, I am busy but I will always take the time to return your calls, emails and get you out to see properties as soon as humanly possible. It does take a bit of time to book appointments and some of them do require 24 hours notice.
