Parksville and Qualicum Beach Real Estate Testimonials

Dec. 11, 2007

Dear Teresa,

I would like to take the time to thank you for your successful and professional approach to the sale/purchase of the Qualicum Beach property which just went firm. I am convinced that the deal would not have closed had you not persisted and breathed new life into the negotiations. As you know I am involved in commercial Real Estate on a daily basis and I have seen many a deal fall by the wayside for lack of diligence and the ability to “READ the DEAL”. I would say, that you in fact Read the deal down to the last detail. I am looking forward to enjoying many days and nights in Qualicum and all that it has to offer. Once again…, Thank you for your impeccable service and commitment to customer satisfaction.When I return to the Island I will be sure to look you up to thank you in person. Merry Christmas to you and your family.

We would refer a family member, friend or perfect stranger to you if they were in need of a realtor. We stand firmly behind our recommendation if anyone wishes to enquire. Your dependability, honesty and personal accountability is unprecedented. We will definately use your agency again in the future.

Hello John and Teresa,

To whom it may concern:

This is the second time we retained the services of John and Teresa and their office team for the sale and purchase of our homes. I think this says enough of how highly we recommend their services.

Best regards,

Dear John and Teresa,

We really appreciate all the hard work you put into selling our property and finding us a house at such short notice. As you know our first deal fell through. You both went over the call of duty during this difficult time to see that we both liked our present house.

Everything was handled in an exceptionally professional manner. Thank you both.

Wishing you every success in the future.

John and Teresa,

My house is sold and it didn’t take long – I can now move on with my life.

I am very pleased with the service that was provided from the beginning to the end.

Thank you.

Dear John and Teresa,

Thank you for representing us during the recent sale of our home in Parksville. We are delighted with the results.

During the evaluation you recognized the uniqueness of our location and quality of the product. Your recommendations for a listing price gave us realistic expectations. We particularly appreciated your forthrightness in this respect.

Your broad strategic approach to marketing brought offers from Alberta and the mainland and resulted in a quick sale.

Within a week or so we received multiple offers. This was a new experience for us. You removed the confusion and made the process clear. We are most appreciative of the professional manner with which you guided us in this process. Your guidance assisted us in making objective and fair assessments of the excellent offers that were received.

Thank you again for an excellent, comprehensive service.

Dear Teresa and John,

Lorna and I would like to thank you for all your hard (and I do mean hard) work on our behalf. What an unbelievable course of events! I’m sorry it required so much extra time and work for you both. The difficulties of the situation certainly highlighted your impeccable work ethic and your attention to every detail.

We honestly believe that if we hadn’t had you as our realtors our deal probably wouldn’t have gone through. You also supported us personally through more than a few difficult days, something we will always remember. A million thanks to you both.

Yours truly,
Gary and Lorna Johnson

John and Teresa,

We recently purchased a home in Parksville and were very happy with the service we received from you. The whole process was smooth and professional. It was complicated in that both the vendor and purchaser were handling the deal from out of town and dealing remotely.

Both of you were involved as well as Elizabeth from your office and all requests were handled effectively. We also received excellent service with the inspections and legal aspects of the transaction.

We happily recommend your services.

Dear Teresa and John,

I’d very much like to thank you both for your real kindness that helped me through the difficult and emotional sale of my family home. You went out of your way, often late in the day. I certainly could not have done it without you, your fabulous office assistants, and the reliable help in various fields you referred to me. I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone requiring quality and enthusiasm! I only wish I had more homes to sell – it’s been a pleasure.

Wishing you continued success and happiness in all your endeavors, with much gratitude.

Yours sincerely,
Suzanne Mowat

John and Teresa,

Thank you for the successful conclusion on the sale of our property. We believe that the sale might not have occurred without your persistence and your creative marketing strategy.

Over the years I have bought and sold seven homes for a transactional value of about $10 million. You have been the best agents we have ever had. Most realtors simply list a house and may advertise in their own market, mainly to expose themselves to potential buyers. You marketed the home. First, you identified probably buyers and then you reached out to them before they even came to our area. This was particularly astute an d contributed to the success of the sale of our home in a less than robust market!

We would be delighted to recommend yo to anyone who is intereseted in selling their home through you. You are the best.

Again, thank you for your efforts.

Most sincerely,
Marina and Phil Heitner

Hello Teresa and John,

Thank you for the voice mail on Friday confirming the successful conclusion of the sale of “Lingerlonger” at Beach Acres in Parksville. You have made the entire process easy and worry-free for me. I was impressed with your quick response to my request to sell the property, followed by the immediate offer on the list price you had suggested, confirming your background work and knowledge of market values. I was amazed when you made a round trip to Victoria in terrible weather conditions to make the offer in person . . . truly “personal service”! All questions or concerns as the sale progressed were promptly responded to by you or Elizabeth, and this was reassuring. The hard part was deciding to sell – the easy part turned out to be letting you, “the professionals”, do all the work. I would be happy to recommend you to future clients.

Thank you again, and I look forward to hearing from you when you come to Victoria.

Dear John and Teresa,

This is just a note to express our thanks for the superb service and time you have afforded us in the finding and purchasing of our new home.

At a time of stress accompanying the wind up of our lives in the UK and the launch of our new venture in Canada your commitment to our cause was second to none.

We would have no hesitation in recommending you both to any of our friends or acquaintances who might be looking to buy real estate in this area, knowing that they would receive the highest level of service possible.

We would also like to assume that a future social friendship will develop and, of course, there is a little more property hunting to be completed before we can all relax.

We would also like to thank Elizabeth and Catherine in the office who back up your efforts in a totally professional and helpful manner.

We know that through all this you have had your own family problems to deal with and we sincerely wish that your worries in that direction will soon ease.

We look forward to speaking soon.

John and Teresa,

We would like to thank you very much for the smooth transition regarding our house sale and new purchase. Had it not been for your expertise we would not have been able to accomplish these transactions.

The move from one house to another was chaotic to say the least and again you came to the rescue.

We wish you the best in your careers as Real Estate Brokers and would not think twice to recommend you to our friends and relatives.

Thank you for all your help.
Tom and Mary Barnes

November 5, 2006

John and Teresa,
Just a note to say we appreciated the way you conducted the very difficult period in the sale of our bungalow. We have sold many properties in our lifetime, this will be number eight, but never hit the problem we faced with this one. We have come across many other problems but some I expect we have created ourselves. Looking back, we were very inexperienced at the time and probably naïve to all the pitfalls of the real estate game. One thing we have learned very early on is that a good real estate agent is a must and you just never know, as was the case with our Magnolia sale.

So we thank you again and wish you all the best in your business dealings and, as we always say, may your problems be solvable.

Art and Gwyneth Reynolds

John and Teresa,

We won’t go on and on with “flowery” comments.

You guys are simply THE BEST, MOST PROFESSIONAL, realtors that we’ve experienced.

ALL of the other testimonials we’ve read regarding your services and the benefits of dealing with you folks simply came true for us!!

Furthermore…………Becky and I wonder if you set a NEW record by selling OUR home WITHIN 3 HOURS OF THE FORMAL LISTING!!!

In the future we won’t even consider any other realtors to work with us…..Anywhere.

Sincerely and affectionately,
Wayne and Becky Gardner

August 1, 2006
Dear John and Teresa,

Both Len and I are thrilled that our home sold in a record 4 days. Our decision to choose you to market and sell our home was based on your professional approach to marketing, your prompt and efficient call backs to us and your enthusiastic demeanor. Your appraisal of the market, your pricing suggestions and your contacts are all part of a first class package that we were very comfortable with.

We would highly recommend you (and have done) to anyone looking to buy or sell property with an experienced and competent real estate team.

Jill and Len

July 26, 2006
John and Teresa,

Thank you and your assistants very much for your time and your patience. Both Mike and I find you very professional and personable. Your “salesmanship” is enthusiastic, not pushy. We appreciate and value that quality. (We especially enjoyed your accent)

We find you and your office’s organization impressive. The maps, the listings, and their order made it easy for us to follow. The extra details and service you provided made us feel very special.

Thank you. I am glad that we took Aaron’s advice and have you be our realtors.

Jacey Lagadyn

July 15, 2006
Dear John and Teresa,

We want to thank you very much for the effort you have made to find a buyer for our waterfront house and also for the personal support and attention you have given us during the period our house was on the market. We are particularly grateful for the help you have given us with the paperwork for speeding up the closing procedure for buying our house in Sidney , even though you were not receiving any compensation for that help. At that time you were a real life saver.
We want to say without reservation that we were very satisfied and will highly recommend your services to all our friends and acquaintances.

Ludwig and Klara Dirnberger

June 20, 2006
Dear Teresa,

With this letter Michael and I would like to express our thanks to you for all your hard work and professional advice you have given us. As we are not very familiar with the Canadian process of selling property, your expertise and prompt replies to all our questions were invaluable and helped us keep the sale of our property going smoothly.

Please feel free to pass on our contact information as a possible reference for any prospective clients. We would be happy to answer any questions that someone wanting to see their property with you may have.
Enjoy the summer and we hope to still be able to visit your beautiful Vancouver Island in the near future.

All our best to you and John,
Patricia and Michael Smith

Beach Acres Resort Manager’s Report

Management has learned that both past owners were very happy with the representation provided by the real estate agents, Teresa and John Sandiford, and they indicated they would recommend them for their efficiency, knowledge, and integrity. The management company has also found Teresa and John to hold the characteristics necessary to make the transition and sale from seller to purchaser very positive. In the past there have been difficulties in this area. We are very pleased to recommend these individuals.

Al Tully

To Whom It May Concern:

John and Teresa Sandiford sold our house in May of 2006. We were very pleased with the service they provided. They were positive, helpful, encouraging and very professional. Their excellent marketing skills and hard work was rewarded with the sale of our house in a reasonable time frame in a volatile housing market. We found both John and Teresa very knowledgeable of the current market conditions and were honest and straight forward to deal with. We certainly have no problem with highly recommending them and have already done so.

Ray and Joyce Hancock

May 16, 2006
To Whom It May Concern:

Teresa Sandiford was recommended to us to sell our cottage at Beach Acres Resort. We would highly recommend Teresa as a realtor. She was very professional in every respect. She viewed our property promptly and recommended an asking price. She immediately emailed people on the list at the Beach Acres Resort to let them know that there was unit for sale, and the offers started coming in. It was sold the next day after listing. In all respects Teresa was prompt, ethical, efficient, matter-of-fact, and easy to deal with. We would recommend her highly to anyone thinking of selling their property.

Ian and Sally Gregory
April 21, 2006

Dear John and Teresa:

Thank you for making my house hunting trip a fun and successful adventure. You were flexible, accommodating, supportive and enthusiastic throughout the viewing and purchasing process. We hit it off like old friend s and you quickly got a sense of what I was looking for. You were a great help in finalizing the agreement in the limited time I had in town.

I am looking forward to moving into my new home and will definitely recommend your service to friends wanting to relocate in this beautiful part of Vancouver Island.

Jean MacKinnon

15 April, 2006

Dear John and Teresa:

We thought we would write to you both to thank you for the great work you did in selling our house recently. As you know, we had tried to sell it ourselves without success but within three weeks of taking the listing, our house was sold!

The production of an excellent brochure, great photos and an Internet video tour resulted in so many showings that we were having to leave the house virtually every day and the “SOLD” sign in the lawn soon followed.

We were more than happy to have you assist in the purchase of our lot and also the acquisition of a rental property for the interim period until our house is built.

Thanks again to you and your team for the great service with special thanks to Elizabeth in your office and Virginia at the Qualicum office who made our “triple deal” virtually painless. We were more than happy to recommend you to some friends who are contemplating selling their home.

Yours sincerely,
Lin and Jeff

April 15, 2006

Dear John and Teresa:

Thank you for your services in selling 3840 Amberwood. We felt very comfortable having you manage our house for showings and marketing the property while we were traveling. Your “take charge” attitude was a breath of fresh air for us. We have sold many homes in the past and from those past experiences we have to say you did a great job. It was a pleasure working with you both.

Yours truly,
Peter and Lesley Whittall

April 13, 2006

Dear John and Teresa:

The final papers came through today on our purchase of Lot 26 on Trill Drive.

We really appreciate the great deal of time, patience and effort you put in our behalf over the years as we researched, surveyed lots and homes before finally making a decision.

Thank you for the financial efforts and sacrifices you made on this purchase to see it come to fruition. It would not have come together without your cost cutting efforts.

We are still researching a home purchase on the Island. Found a couple of homes we would have loved to come over and check out. Unfortunately, time is of the essence for us at this point as I will be traveling to Alberta to carry on with farming operations for this coming season.

In November, we will be on the Island at our Pacific Shores Time share. No doubt we will be looking at homes as a possible purchase. We will be retaining you as our agents because of your dedication and honesty in dealing with us and our concerns.

We have already let people know that they will not be disappointed in working with you to purchase property for themselves.

Many thanks for your exceptional efforts on our behalf as well as your honesty.

Victor Kuliska and Beverley Robinson

April 9, 2006

Dear John and Teresa:

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you both, and your team, for effecting a sale of our property at 811 Mulholland Drive.

Your professionalism and attention to all the details in, what is now, a very complex process, to put seller and buyer together, is exemplary.

You provided us with every conceivable marketing tool, to ensure maximum exposure to the potential buyers.

We have no hesitation in highly recommending you both to other prospective sellers, whom, we are sure, would find your dedication to their needs, second to none.

Yours very truly,
Martin and Jean Lees

April 8, 2006

Dear John, Teresa & Elizabeth:

Just a note to thank you all for the guidance and help in selling our property and making it a pleasant experience.

Teresa guided, persuaded and took my hand through the whole deal. When the folks had troubles at the new house, both John and Teresa kept us informed and Teresa, with her enticing ways, made is so much easier.

While showing my old house on the water, it poured rain many times but she walked it in her high heels, she came any time I asked her to and they answered many questions.

Dear Elizabeth was always there by the phone at Royal LePage with her knowledge and her caring, sometimes soothing ways.

What a great “Threesome”. I would recommend them to anyone who wishes a “Clean Cut Sale”.

Thanking you again, and God Bless
Audrey & Fred

April 5, 2006

Dear John and Teresa:

Just a quick note to say how very happy we were with you in helping us sell our mother’s home. You made what is usually a very difficult job seem so easy. I can’t stress enough what a wonderful job you did. We would not hesitate to call upon you in future for any real estate dealings. Any friends or family member’s who are considering buying or selling, your name will be given to them.

Once again, thank you.

L & F Grob

April 3, 2006

Dear John and Teresa:

I with to thank you for the very excellent service you both provided in my recent property purchase.

You were very professional and efficient to deal with during the entire process, from viewing various properties to the final closing.

I would recommend your services to anyone. Excellent Professional Service.

Thank you.

December 9, 2005

Dear John and Teresa:

I would like to thank you for the way you handled the sale of our home. From the beautiful feature sheet and virtual tour to the actual sale, you were always on top of what was happening and kept us informed with the help of Elizabeth who was very good to deal with.

We have already recommended you to a friend who is considering selling and would certainly pass your name on to others.

Congratulations on your first wedding anniversary and all the best to you in the new year.

Shirley Malet de Carteret

Dear John and Teresa:

Thanks so much for all of your efforts on my behalf.

I really like my new home. It is perfect for my lifestyle. I’m moving on December 20th and I’ll be happy to unpack and enjoy the beauty of the Island.

Again, thanks for everything.


November 29, 2005

To Whom It May Concern:

John and Teresa Sandiford were recommended to us by our neighbour and we were so glad we took their advice. The house we were selling was a little difficult to sell but the Sandifords put photographs of our property in the newspaper regularly, arranged for numerous realtors to view our house and met with us regularly to discuss how things were going. Even when the original buyer backed out, the Sandifords were there with sympathy and advice. Shortly after the house was sold again the purchasers let us know how satisfied they were with the property.

When we were looking for a house in the same district John took us out several times to view suitable properties, negotiated with the owner of the house we wished to buy to give us more time when the original deal fell through and assisted us when the House Inspector found a defect that the previous owners were expected to fix before they left.

We have no hesitation in recommending John and Teresa Sandiford to act as realtors for you and can assure you that you will be as satisfied with their services as we were.

T.D. and Olive L. Batchelor

September 28, 2005

To Whom It May Concern:

We highly recommend John and Teresa Sandiford as the realtors for you. They made the process of selling our home as smooth and painless as possible. The professional service they provided went above and beyond any other realtor we’d previously dealt with. We know you will be more than satisfied with the help and understanding they will most definitely provide for you.

Andrew & Alexandra McCormack

September 24, 2005

Dear John:

Just a short note to thank you for your assistance in completing the recent purchase of the lovely property in Nanoose Bay.

The service you provided was excellent. Your references for the legal, inspection and construction issues surrounding the property all have been very professional and proven to be very helpful.

Without your commitment towards the end of the negotiations, the deal may not have been done. You were as good as your word in all the parts of the process.

Again, thanks to both you (and Elizabeth) for your quick response to the many phone calls, faxes, and emails.

Please feel free to use my name or this note for reference.

Cam Greene

September 6, 2005

Dear John and Teresa:

Kevin and I would like to thank you for the excellent job John did in organizing a whirlwind house tour, and ultimately pulling together all the right people to enable us to purchase an absolutely magnificent new home.

I was drawn to the area by cruising the internet, and one of John’s listings intrigued me, so I emailed him. He reserved a motel room for us in Parksville, and arranged a selection of homes for us to view that were within our specifications. We actually fell in love with one of the homes that he showed us on a “lark”. Goes to show you that you never know what will please someone.

We really appreciate that John brought in a selection of people that helped us arrange financing, rental management, legal services, and some added features. And we really appreciate being introduced to the Rocking Horse Pub.

We’d also like to thank Elizabeth for all her hard work, and for being there when John was about on other business.

Kudos on a job well done!

Thank you,
Kevin Hartig & Renee Olson

August, 2005

Dear Teresa:

Let the record show for any prospective clients that in our view your services exceeded our expectations in every way – from the selection of homes for us to view, to the preparation and presentation of the offer, to the finalization of the sale while we were 3000 miles away and to the outstanding generosity in facilitating our move in. We could not have asked or hoped for more.

We also wish to extend our sincere thanks to your assistant, Elizabeth.

Thank you so very much.

To Royal LePage Realty

John Sandiford has worked with my husband and I on four occasions and we have found none to be as hard working and honest as he.

Small or large, purchase or sale, you get the same dedication with him.

We are grateful we found John to take care of our realty needs.

Phyllis & Reg Johnson

August 2005,

My association with John & Teresa in selling my home was wonderful. Not only did they sell it quick but were very helpful, honest and trustworthy. I can recommend them without any hesitation.

Mrs. E. Stephenson

P.S. Thank you John & Teresa for all you did. You are two wonderful people.

July 28, 2005

Dear John and Teresa:

Alyn and I wish to thank you for your efforts in selling our condominium in Schooner Cove.

On account of your consideration, the way you kept us informed how people reacted to our condo after each visit, and your unfailing trust our place would sell, helped us enormously.

We are very grateful for your kindness. Therefore, should we hear of anybody moving anywhere between Nanaimo and Qualicum Beach, we’ll be more than happy to recommend both of you to help them.

Hope you are keeping well.

Best regards,
Julia and Alyn Duggan

May 22, 2005

Dear John and Teresa:

It was such a pleasure to work with you in the purchase of our new home last October. We went from being casual browsers to potential homeowners in the course of one afternoon. Your relaxed and friendly manner was a bonus to the efficient and thorough service you provided.

Your support was evident in many ways. Even though we were “just looking” you took the time to discuss our passing interest in the Parksville area as well as to arrange for the viewing of potential properties. Once we had made an offer on our manufactured home, you were always available to discuss concerns and answer questions as well to accompany us to meetings with the park manager. Our best interests were paramount at all times.

It was a pleasure to meet you, both personally and professionally. We are thoroughly enjoying our new home and look forward to many years of happy times here. Thanks again for helping to make our dream become a reality.

Bunny & Sam

April 6, 2005

To Whom It May Concern:

We highly recommend the services of John & Teresa Sandiford. We found them both to have a very professional and friendly approach to the task of marketing our house, which to our delight and amazement was sold for 99% of our asking price within about 2 weeks. We have never before in the 15 moves that we have made in our married life received such EXCELLENT & SATISFACTORY service from anyone in the real estate profession.

Donald & Joan Watson

April 1, 2005

Dear John and Teresa:

We would like to thank you both for handling the sale of our home both professionally and with kind thought to ourselves.

Would also like to say your secretary was very obliging and we were treated with respect at all times. And that it was a pleasure meeting all your staff.

So with kind thoughts for your future and good luck with your agency we say Thank you very much for your services.

Yours sincerely,
Mr. & Mrs. Gordon

March 1, 2005

Dear John and Teresa:

I am impressed! Not only do you take the time to make contacts, and follow up, but your letterhead is professional and distinctive and your “fridge pad” is very unique.

I am new to real estate and I make it a point to look for quality in advertising and in service. Your efficiency and style show that you care, and take good care of your clients. I feel that the clients which I will refer to you will be well taken care of, and that is very important to me.

Without even knowing it, you have taught me some valuable lessons. Thanks to you both.

Jim Whittaker

March 24, 2005

Here is a letter regarding my degree of satisfaction with your handling of my recent purchase of a vacant lot (lot b17, Marina Way).

I was happy with your service. You handled the situation well when I backed out of the previous office that I made on Lot 6 Blokker Rd. You went out of your way to provide information and pictures re lot 17 Marina Way, in a timely way.

I would have no reason not to use your services in the future, and would willingly recommend you to other purchasers or sellers in your area.

Geoff Fridd

March 22, 2005

Dear John and Teresa:

We wish to thank you for the excellent service we received from you both with regard to the selling of our house and the purchase of our new townhome.

We are nicely settled in and are enjoying townhome life.

The entire process was accomplished in a very professional and personal manner. It is gratifying to have someone take care of everything and not have to worry about the countless items that do crop up.

We would highly recommend you both to any of your prospective clients, or to our own friends, who would need the services of professional realtors.

You both give the ultimate in service and satisfaction in the home buying and/or or home selling process.

Again, many thanks.

Tony and Janet Dunn

We are happy to recommend John and Teresa Sandiford. Thoughout our recent real estate transaction of selling and buying a new home their attention to our needs was professional and timely met. We would consider using them again to represent us in our next transactions.

I would like to take this opportunity to highly recommend Teresa Sandiford as a real estate agent. Teresa sold a recreational property for me recently. I was very impressed with her dedication to the task of selling my lot as well as to her aggressive and imaginative marketing campaign. Teresa’s network of potential clients extends from the local setting, where she has raised a family, to people in other provinces and the USA. This extensive network was an important asset that Teresa was able to call on when marketing my property. I find Teresa to be an honest, forthright and trustworthy person; all characteristics I like to see when working with someone on a business deal.

The property Teresa sold had been listed with another agent for over a year without a single offer. Within a few weeks of retaining Teresa’s service, the lot was sold. I’d like to take this chance to thank Teresa for all the hard work she employed on my behalf and to wish her well in her future dealings. I would not hesitate to use Teresa again the future if I need a realtor.
