Testimonials

 

The House Selling Group was the perfect choice when it came to helping our family sell and purchase our home.

We are so grateful to Blair, Katrina and Dustin for everything they have helped us with! From our first appointment together, we felt listened to and cared for when it came to our wants and needs in the selling and purchasing processes.

With unwavering professionalism and patience, the team made themselves available to us no matter the time of day or the request we had.

As this was our first sale, there was a lot of hand-holding as Blair and Katrina helped us navigate the many steps that needed to be followed. The team helped us through all those necessary steps with continued kindness, expertise and insight that we would not have been able to find elsewhere. Communication and accessibility seemed effortless to Blair, Katrina and Dustin, and because of them, we sold our home in record-breaking time and purchased our dream home to raise our family in.

Thank you Blair, Katrina and Dustin for all your efforts and for everything you helped us with on this journey. We couldn’t have done any of it without each of you!

As we were new to the buying process, Deanna was helpful and adaptable as we worked out what it was we wanted and needed in a home. We ended up finding a perfect house for us, within our budget and our desired area. Deanna really took the time to get to know us, and helped guide us through the entire home-buying process. Her upbeat demeanor and sense of humour really helped take some of the stress out of our search, and she was overall fantastic to work with. We highly recommend working with Deanna when you are looking to buy a home!

Blair recently helped my husband and I buy our first home in the challenging market of Victoria. I have a very busy, demanding work schedule and a young toddler, and Blair was very accommodating of this —booking showings, contacting selling agents, and submitting offers at all hours/days of the week. He was always readily available to answer our questions by email or phone throughout the process. Because we are new to home ownership, we also appreciated Blair’s expertise regarding what to look for and expect in terms of maintenance/upgrading. After only a few weeks of active searching, we were able to find the perfect home for our young family in a desirable neighbourhood! We’re very happy with Blair and excited to move into our new home.

I can’t thank Dustin and Blair at Re/Max Camosun enough for helping us close the deal on our new property in Victoria. With Dustin’s help we were able to accomplish a multitude of tasks within 2 weeks! Dustin’s knowledge, experience and excellent communication kept the process moving forward in a smooth and timely manner. This Re/Max team provided assistance in connecting with inspectors, insurance, lawyers etc which was valuable as we didn’t know anybody in Victoria. All questions and emails were answered very quickly.The “to do lists” provided were extremely helpful. I highly recommend this team for anybody looking for a property in Victoria!

Deanna has helped my family and I purchase two houses. She is very punctual, very friendly and gives honest, good advice. We were very happy with the service we got from her. She made the process very easy and enjoyable. I hope we can work together again in the future.

This was my first experience with a realtor who answered every email I sent. I saw every property I asked to see. I got a better-than-expected price on what I sold, and a good price on what I bought. Blair and Katrina were very efficient and on top of everything at all times.

Blair Veenstra and his team were amazing, making my experience of buying my first home in Victoria, a smooth transition. They were always prompt with emails, texts and phone calls ensuring my questions were answered without delay. I never had to worry that I was alone in this major purchase. I am a veteran and retired to move back to Victoria, Blair has extensive knowledge of BGRS policies and directives.

I would definitely reach out to Blair Veenstra and his team for the sale and purchase of other properties.

Thank you so much Blair and team for selling my Mum and Dads house and making it such a smooth transition for them.

We have worked with Blair on four occasions he is incredibly professional and knowledgeable. Always responded in an efficient and timely manner with concise and practical information and advice. I would highly recommend Blair to anyone who wants a diligent, no nonsense and empathetic realtor.

Highly knowledgeable about the market always providing excellent advice and easily walking us through the process each and every time.
If you want a knowledgeable no nonsense tech savvy agent I can’t think of a better agent to represent you.

Blair and his team are EXCEPTIONAL. I should first mention that my husband and I had been looking for ‘the right property’ for over 6 years all the time Blair, Katrina and Dustin were the embodiment of patience. Blair and his team got to know us, our priorities and our objectives. When the right property finally did come along their team treated us like we were their only client. It was like they’d been in the starting blocks for 6 years and blasted out of the gate ready to get us anything we needed. Property lawyers all on vacation because it’s the middle of summer – no problem – Blair connected us with his lawyer the same day. We needed to ensure there was no oil tank on the property and QUICKLY because they were taking offers at 2 pm the next day. Blair took time out of his family vacation to get us set up for the following morning. We also needed an archaeological assessment ASAP, well it just so happened Blair had an email address and phone number for us. Blair coached us through everything leading up to an accepted offer the next day. This review is longer than I intended but it doesn’t do justice to the quality of service Blair and his team provided. Blair’s professionalism, integrity, patience, industry knowledge and tenacity are unparalleled. It was a privilege to work with Blair, Katrina and Dustin and I recommend them to anyone looking for a humble, hardworking and trustworthy real estate team.

Blair was just awesome when we bought our house. He gave us such great advice and was so helpful throughout the whole process. We ended up with a much better place than we initially thought we could get, in no small part thanks to his know-how. He’s a great person to have in your corner.

– Adrianna Forest


Blair and his team were great help during the purchase of our dream home. Being an out of town buyer, Blair got everything arranged for us and kept track of all details that needed to be looked after. And he is a really nice guy!

-Oliver Gepraegs


Blair and his team were professional and highly attentive to our needs as they walked us through every step of locating and purchasing a home. We were first time home buyers and searched far and wide looking at numerous properties. He not once slowed in his efforts to get us in to view these properties as time was of the essence and every minute counted. He was always there for us, walking us through every step of the way as we discovered just how challenging this market can be. Upon finding our dream home, Blair went into overdrive and worked incredibly hard for us at the time when it truly mattered. We strongly feel he was our difference maker in closing the deal and owe him a great deal of thanks. We highly recommend Blair and his team to any person requiring real estate expertise.

Blair’s help with purchasing our first home was just invaluable. He has experience building homes, so he knows what to look for, and what to avoid. He went above and beyond for us, going through many more showings and offers than I’d like to admit. I’d recommend him whole-heartedly.

– Brad Benoit


Blair was a great realtor for the following reasons:

1. Able to provide balanced advice about the pros and cons of properties based on his extensive experience in Victoria and great observation skills during house walk-thrus

2. Very responsive, always getting back to me in a timely manner, but without any impression of pressure

3. Super nice personality
Would highly recommend over other realtors.

– Dustin Loomes


Blair helped us find a house perfect for us over 5 years ago when we moved to Victoria and helped us recently again to find our “forever home” just on the other side of Mount Doug. He and his team are always helpful and willing to go that extra mile. Also provided sound advice to us well before we were going to list our house that helped us prepare. All in all, we were so pleased and would be happy to recommend to anyone looking to list or to buy!

– Stuart Hemerling


Very knowledgeable, professional and efficient in selling our home and townhouse at the same time as purchasing our new home. Great recommendations for other professionals to help with all the closing duties, banking and lawyers. We definitely recommend Blair Veenstra!
