The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to show you their correspondence. Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my down-to-earth and honest approach has earned me many friends - I think that's fantastic!Initially, Gary took time to show us the various neighbourhoods of greater Victoria, in which we expressed an interested and he explained the pros and cons of each. As we gradually defined and refined our housing needs for over a year, he very patient arranged for us to view a variety of houses at different price ranges and different neighbourhoods. Throughout this process Gary did not express his opinions of a house but he did point out particular shortcomings and in instances where we had detailed questions related to a house or its property he took the initiative to find an answer from the municipality, the appropriate tradesman or the manufacturer. In sum, Gary presents himself as a very personable, patient, knowledgeable, and professional estate agent who does not attempt to express his personal opinions of a place he but will point out its shortcomings, if asked, and will follow up in finding answers to your housing /property concerns .

My partner and I recently purchased a house. Gary Alberts was recommended to us as a very competent and thorough real estate agent. We contacted him and decided to work with him in finding a house property to purchase. He was competent and capable in dealing with multiple scheduling issues between us and the various sellers. He was always prompt for any appointments and invariably cheerful and helpful with our queries. He was very diligent in returning telephone and email messages that often arose well outside regular business hours. He is knowledgeable with real estate rules and regulations and has comprehensive sources for the multitude of specialties necessary for inspections, evaluations, financing and other needs. I am happy to recommend him if you are looking for a competent, diligent, friendly and capable real estate agent.

We had a great experience dealing with Gary Alberts from RE/MAX when my husband and I bought our first home. Gary is such a kind and gentle person; we did not feel rushed or pushed into a sale at all. (He let us take our time looking at each house and gave us space) First of all, he was great at keeping in touch and answering any little questions since we were first-time home buyers and we were completely new to this house-buying stuff. Gary would answer his texts and emails any time of the day and we would always offer a ride to us to go look at houses. He was always able to find time to meet us to fit our busy schedule. We felt that he went an extra mile to fulfill a great service. Through all this, we could see the true willingness to assist. Since he was really easy to talk to, we had a great time talking to him throughout the process and he got to know us better and he knew exactly what we wanted. He was very good at communicating and negotiating our requests with the selling Realtor and he kept his promises. We were able to trust his opinions, strategy and his procedures so that we could have a smooth and pleasant purchasing experience.
Even after we moved in to our new home, he followed up with a few inquiries we had about the move and he was able to solve them with the timely manner. We are so happy with the exceptional customer service and we would recommend Gary Alberts to anyone. In fact, we gave Gary's business cards to our family and friends already

I was impressed by Gary in providing me with helpful tips to stage my home resulting in a sale in 4 days and with an offer over asking! -
Gary helped my sister and I sell our Uncles home. She and I both live out of town, Gary was keeping us both informed of all the activity. We had two offers the first week. A very good experience - G Boyer
The kids moved out, we were downsizing. Gary helped us find a nice little house, just perfect for the both of us - Bonnie
Thank you Gary for all the help you have given us and also for your very generous gift. You have helped us make our transition from renter to owner with ease. It has been a pleasure working with you and should there ever be a need in the future for your real estate services, we'll be sure to get in touch with you.
Thank you again.
All the best
We have had lots of friends and family come over. They are amazed at the location, size of the place and what sets it apart is the view. Yes cruise ship season is on and I have just watched one dock and two more appear to be on final approach. As a former recreational pilot I find the seaplanes and interesting visual distraction as we have had many take off from right in front when there is a strong east wind.
Thank you so much
