CLIENT TESTIMONIALS

 

I just sold my condo not too long ago with the help of Sukhmeet. My husband and I were not happy at all with the services of our previous realtor, which is why we decided to seek recommendations from friends and family. My father-in-law recommended Sukhmeet and the one thing he said about Sukhmeet was that he would work hard for me. What my in-law said was absolutely true. 

My condo was sold sooner than what I had thought, and for a good price. I am a mother of two young kids and have a full-time job; my life is busy and Sukhmeet made everything possible. He was professional, respectful of my wishes and very quick to take care of issues. I couldn’t have done it without his help and I am thankful. I will happily recommend Sukhmeet to anyone. In In Po - Nov 2016

 


The thought of downsizing from a 2 bed/bath condo to a 1 bed 
condo was daunting enough but the Sweet Home Victoria Real Estate Team was a key part of the process. There was no high level sales pitch, just a careful going over of the rules of the Company and a development of my wishes and priorities. During the six months it took me to find a new home, there was never any sense of rush or impatience at the time it was taking, only a calm, professional, and efficient compliance with my wishes. Eventually, a new home was found and we now had to sell my existing condo which was sold in 3 days! The market was favourable to me at that time and we sold over the asking price, for which we were both equally delighted, and Kevin made a substantial reduction in his commission because it was a quick sale. Kevin and Sukhmeet are both knowledgeable Real Estate Agents in Victoria and Saanich and my experience with them has been a pleasant and positive one. Hazel Colme - July 2016


I have the opportunity to work with both Kevin and Sukhmeet from SweetHome Victoria.  I was very pleased with the professional, yet personable service from both of them.  They made my home a priority when it came to open houses and advertising, and took the effort to gain knowledge about the ins and outs of the strata neighbourhood.  Communication with both Kevin and Sukhmeet has always been effortless, with prompt (almost immediate) replies via both email and text.  I would highly recommend either of them to anyone buying or selling their home, and I will certainly be using their services in the future! (Michelle Gibson, March 2016)

I'm not one to usually take the time to write a reference letter, but in this case I thought I'd make an exception. I was relocating up island and like most dreaded the idea of realtor fees in the sale of my property. I heard Kevin Ramsay's ad for Fair Realty's Sweet Home Real Estate Team on the radio and when it was time to sell my house I thought his pitch made sense. The lower rate on his part, the extra savings on a quick sale and even more savings if he found the buyer was really attractive to me. I have to admit I was a bit apprehensive that his altered approach from the norm may turn other buyer's realtors away. I can assure you this wasn't the case with my property which had a high number of showings. Kevin is even keeled, competent, professional and knows the Victoria market well. He is open to your suggestions and concerns and was available personally throughout the whole process of selling our house. My house included extras involving incomplete permits, a removed underground oil tank and ambiguous trade work in which he was able to reference through the city and clarify for the concerned buyer. Selling your house is an emotional and stressful time. It is tempting to lean toward the “big folks” of real estate to sell your house, but I urge you to try Kevin as it will keep more of your well earned money in your pocket. As a seller who sold my house in matter of days, I recommend Kevin.  - Rob B, July 2015.

"Kevin's mature; he's got a really steady hand.  I have dealt with a lot of agents, and have bought and sold a lot of houses in different parts of Canada.  He is the best agent I've ever had."  
     A sudden drop in interest rates last February left Brenda in a stressful situation where her previous home had an offer, but the one she was purchasing subject to sale suddenly had multiple, above-list-price offers stacked up behind hers.  "I was freaking out, but Kevin was so calm.  A lot of realtors would have said, 'Too bad, she loses the purchase,' but he stuck with me and went the distance.  It came down to 15 minutes—right down to the wire before the deadline—and I wouldn't be living here if he hadn't worked so hard to bring it all together."
      ....
     Brenda says this ethic of fairness is further illustrated by Kevin's flexibility on commission rates.  "It's good that he gives people a break on quick sales.  My place sold in 72 hours, and I got a discount on the commission he was paid.  It think that's fair."  She says he has his priorities straight.  "He's just doing his job and doing it well.  He's fun to work with."

My fiancé and I first met Sukhmeet a year ago this month and what started of as my selling my table and chair ended up being a great find in a realtor. Sukhmeet took the time to find out what our likes and dislikes in homes as well as what was our price range, he sent us listing daily and always had the time to give us personal service when we would set up viewings. During the nine months that we worked with Sukhmeet wether it was seeing homes up island or around the corner he was very professional and helped us with sometimes asking the right questions. Sukhmeet was our choice of realtor for both our sale of our townhouse ( 8 ) days on the market and the purchase of our new home. What we have found is not a realtor but a person who cared about what was best for us and we believe we have found a friend. (Keith and Meva - May 2015)

We have used the services of Kevin Ramsay and Fair Realty for two real estate transactions, buying and selling. Professional in every manner, his attention to detail and meticulously correct paperwork greatly helped to reduce stress during what can be trying times. Communication with Kevin and his team was efficient and prompt, enabling us to move quickly to ensure our offer was successful. The professional photographs and unique signage he used made our listing stand out from the rest. Kevin went the extra mile, even lending us furniture for staging! We wouldn’t hesitate to call Kevin again for future transactions.   M & S Sampson - March 2015

Kevin sold my small duplex. He worked very hard for me and was flexible and negotiated very fair terms. He is patient, calm under pressure and he listens. He got the job done and was a consummate professional throughout the whole process.  Kat G - March 2015.

The word Realtor “R E A L T O R” in Kevin’s case really describes the attributes of a fantastic Professional. 

  • “R” for Respectful;

  • “E” for Efficient, Empathetic, Expert;

  • “A” for Accessible, Accommodating;

  • “L” for Likeable, (even Loveable);

  • “T” for Trustworthy, Talented;

  • “O” for Obliging and “Off the Wall” sense of humor;

  • “R” for Responsible, Reliable.

Kevin has been “OUR” realtor for six years through 4 moves.  If by some strange circumstance we have to move again, there would be no wondering about who to call.  Kevin embodies all of the above characteristics and so much more.  We would never use anyone else.

With much gratitude Kevin,  Norma & Paul Steer - March, 2015.

We would highly recommend the services of Kevin and his office to anyone who is looking for a new home.  When we began looking we only had a vague notion of what we wanted in a home, and Kevin was able to help us find what we truly valued in the different homes that he showed us.  By giving us frank and honest assessments of the homes we viewed, and keeping in mind our particular needs with a growing family, Kevin was able to find the perfect home for us. If what you are looking for in a realtor is integrity, honesty, availability, a deep knowledge of the Victoria real estate market, and  a hard working nature, then look no further.  B & T Naylor, Feb 2014

My most salient memory of Kevin recalls a moment walking out of a home I would later live in, having just seen it for the first time. Kevin saw our interest, identified a few possible impediments (inevitable when the property has some history) and was already on the phone solving them before we had left the grounds. During negotiation his expertise provided essential background which gave me confidence to bid. We felt secure with him in a way other agents were unable to provide. There is a certain kind of person with whom trust is obvious and symmetrical. Integrity is not always a constant in the real estate industry, but with Kevin there is no doubt. The LinkedIn interface limits me to three positive attributes, but the rest all apply.  M. Sira (via LinkedIn) Dec 2013


We would undoubtedly recommend Kevin to anyone looking to buy, or sell a home in Victoria. He is honest, kind, reliable, and very professional. He was always there to answer our never-ending questions, and his good advice helped us save money on the purchase of our new home. Thank you Kevin! Matt and Kelly, September, 2013 

 Just want to thank you again so much for your professional and personable service in selling our property in such a timely manner. We were very impressed as to how quick and smooth the sale transaction went. We were fortunate that we heard your ad on the CFAX radio station just when we were thinking about listing our property. Jeff and Judee, September 3, 2013.

I have had the pleasure of knowing Kevin for a number of years before engaging his services to manage the sale of our house. I have found his work ethics, knowledge of the marketplace, communications abilities, and overall professionalism to be unparalleled in this challenging and competitive business field. I highly recommend Kevin to anyone who may require stress-free, first rate services for their real estate needs. C. Stafford, Aug 2012 

Kevin worked with Julie and I to sell our home in 2009. We were both thrilled at the professional approach proposed by Kevin. The staging, professional photographer and the suggestions for improvement in preparation of the sale were simple and spot on. In no time, he understood our needs and reacted to them quickly. We felt very well supported with regular updates and ultimately a very quick turn-around. The real recommendation is that Julie and I would (will) use Kevin again for all of our future transactions.  C. Chatelain/S. Lanoix, July 2012.
