It's been a great experience working with Dean. His commitment to our success was paramount at every turn. We could not have made our dream come true without his all-round expertise. I can't recommend Dean enough.

Dean is the best! We found our dream house on the island with his help. He knew exactly what we were looking for and was a pleasure to work with.


Matthew and Jacquelin

We are so happy we hired Kent as our realtor in Victoria. We currently live in Ottawa and could not be physically present for the house hunting process. Given this restriction combined with an overheated real estate market, our goal of purchasing a home to meet our narrow criteria felt a little overwhelming. Kent was our guiding light. He worked tirelessly on our behalf, viewing homes and providing us with honest and experienced recommendations, and he was quick to respond any time we reached out. When we found that perfect property, Kent went above and beyond to coordinate with our mortgage broker and also put us in touch with both a lawyer and home inspection company to ensure we would meet the tight deadline for subjects removal. Kent stayed in touch with us consistently throughout the process, which made it feel like we were there despite being so far away. We highly recommend Kent to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

We wanted to buy a house near the University of Victoria. But with little understanding of the market, quite demanding requirements, and not a lot of time as we had to travel from Vancouver whenever we wanted to view a property, we needed a knowledgeable, trustworthy and experienced realtor. We were very fortunate to connect with Kent, who provided us with all the help we needed and quite a lot more besides. Kent listened carefully to what we wanted and made sure not to waste our time, guiding us towards the right properties and advising on possible drawbacks on others. On travel days, he managed a tight viewing schedule, allowing us to make the most of the day while learning a lot as we went along. After 10 viewings spread across just two travel days, we zoned in on the perfect match. From that, Kent skillfully guided us through the offer process and worked collaboratively with the selling agent to ensure all our conditions were satisfied. As a result, we were able to go from the first conversation to an accepted offer on a great house at a very reasonable price in just 6 weeks. Kent's knowledge, hard work, excellent service, and above all his candor and honesty in all conversations stand out as reasons why I would not hesitate to recommend his services to anyone looking for a realtor in Greater Victoria.

We used Kent’s services when we recently purchased our home and sold our Condo. We couldn’t have been more pleased. We currently live in our dream home! It took a while for us to get there after viewing many properties-fortunately Kent has an incredible amount of patience! There are a few really stand-out qualities that separate Kent from the many other realtors you can choose. Apart from being a genuinely nice person, he is someone that we trust 100%, which we think is probably a rare quality for a realtor. Our experience was that he wanted us to find the right home, the home that we would fall in love with. With this as his guiding force, he often advised us against certain properties, properties that would have ended up needing a lot of work done to them, which would of put us right over our budget and he would often see things that we would miss. The other thing that really stood out was the amount of research into the places we were going to see he had done. He was always ready to find out any information we needed and has an incredible network of people he can call on for further details. We had quite specific needs for what we wanted and we felt this was never overlooked. Selling was also a breeze with Kent as he really handled everything and gave us great advice on how to stage the apartment to be ready for sale. The photography and listing looked amazing & the Condo sold in no time.

We have no hesitation at all in recommending Kent as your realtor. In fact we would go so far as to say to put your current realtor on hold and try Kent out- we guarantee you won’t go back!

Karen & Jonathan

“If you are looking to buy a property in Victoria and need a top-notch realtor, look no further than Kent. My husband and I used him for the purchase of our first ever home, which is a completely intimidating and sometimes terrifying experience. Add to that the fact we have not been in Victoria all that long, so we really needed someone who knew the city and the market and would steer us clear of the not-so-nice neighbourhoods.

Not only does Kent really love what he does, he is a former project manager, so even details like new railings and windows do not escape his attention. He was never shy to give us his opinion on a place, which we really appreciated.

Kent is professional in all things, always on time (even when my husband gave him the wrong address), organized and just a really nice guy.

In the end, we bought a place we are totally in love with – Kent helped us with all the negotiations and there was no question too small. He understands this process can sometimes take a while and was extremely patient throughout the whole process.

We would wholeheartedly recommend him.”

Jim

“Kent helped me find a home for myself and my two sons. Kent was extremely helpful and responsive. He showed me many places, responded quickly to emails and phone calls, and navigated me through making an offer and purchasing a home. I liked how he moved at my pace and didn’t pressure me or try to “sell” me on any one type of home.

On the other hand, he wouldn’t hesitate to tell me if he didn’t like certain features of a house, or if the price was too high. I never got the impression that he had any other agenda except my own, and he worked with me for many months to help me find my best fit.

I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kent. He is a knowledgeable professional and an outstanding real estate agent.”

Suzanna

“I was a first-time home buyer, so I didn’t know what I was doing. Kent came highly recommended as a knowledgeable and patient agent. I’m so glad I called him. Kent is, as promised, lovely. He answered all my questions, joined me to open-houses (even when it wasn’t necessary), and gave me great advice. I never felt pressure and, above all, always had fun. He made what could have been a scary experience an enjoyable one.”

Ken & Bonnie

“We wish to share our experience in working with Kent McFadyen of Homes of Victoria, with the sale of our condo. From the initial meeting to advising us: “your condo has been sold”, Kent was there for us every step of the way. He answered every question, phone call, text messages and emails. In Kent’s role as Realtor, patience, efforts and understanding go a long way! His professionalism was outstanding. We highly recommend Kent as a Realtor who will work for you. Thank you, Kent!”

Lisa

“I recently moved from Kamloops to Victoria. Kent was a one-man dynamo in helping me find the perfect home. He was always available, either by text or phone, and put me in touch with a solid team (home inspector, lawyer, etc.) so that my transition went smoothly. Above all, Kent is a good man who is kind and dependable. I highly recommend him.”
