Good Morning Mr. Johannsen
Yesterday I posted on your Company’s FaceBook page my experience with one of your Realtors – Theresa Carter. Please see that those comments make it to your website as Theresa deserves all the credit she can get. The Johannsen Group was recommended by my friend, Savannah. I had just let a Realtor go as I was unhappy with the service provided & Savannah suggested your company. So I called your office and the Receptionist asked a few questions and matched me with Theresa. When I come to think of it that helpful lady deserves praise too!!! My experience with Theresa is very positive. We met the day of the Mill Bay fire!!! I was 2 hours late for a viewing but Theresa kept the ball rolling and we viewed the home. Unfortunately that home wasn’t for me; I felt so bad after all the effort she put in! When it came to choosing homes to view no stone was left unturned. She had all the information readily available with no surprises which meant not wasting time on homes that didn’t suit me. Very swift and efficient. When it did come time came to write an offer I was in very good hands as she included things for my protection that I hadn’t even considered and she negotiated with excellence! Unfortunately, on the first home, the Building Inspection was not up to my liking. However the next one was and once again I was very impressed with her negotiating and her organizational skills. Very impressed! Theresa has a firm grasp on modern technology and uses it to advantage, which is great because we were covering lots of ground. You have a Gold Employee that is representing you company to the highest standards. Thank you so much!

History tells us that Kim Johannsen was once in the navy. We have recently sold an acreage on Quamichan Lake through Kim and his team, and we have seen evidence of this naval background.

1. He plotted a course and stayed with it. Steady hand, determined, transparent captain. Straight forward, supportive and committed. No fanfare, just steady going. He and his crew simply did their work.

2. He considered several new and novel parameters, along a journey of some length, and never lost sight of the goal. He remained optimistic that the wind would pick up, even though we saw a lot of calm seas along the way.

3. He chose an excellent, engaged and talented crew, eg Renee and Karen. They manned the pumps, sails, phones, cameras, tools and media, kept our ship on course, and kept us well informed. Others at the helm of this large ship eg. Clint and Theresa, provided competent and affable support.

And so we plied these waters, near and far, off and on, for quite a time. Now that we have arrived at our port (the sails are down because the sale went through), we observe that Kim’s crew did not abandon ship upon arrival! Rather, in keeping with our experience throughout the trip, all the details associated with arrival at port have been carefully attended to…no loose ends. Things look tidy and ship shape. And so we endorse the Johannsen naval/real estate team, as a committed and effective one. They have shown us, in word and in deed, noteworthy seamanship, integrity and purpose.

Thanks for your note Kim.

I have received exemplary service, both with my sale of my condo with Michael McMullen (who asked me to share with you my pleasure in working with his team), and with Theresa for the purchase of my Chemainus home. They have both gone the extra mile for me, as well as being timely in service delivery, conscientious over every detail, and a delight to work with. I will certainly be singing RE/MAX praises to all!

Thank you to the Kim Johannsen Team for the sale of my house. From the moment I signed the listing contract, a team of very professional people entered into my home. The web page was outstanding due to expert photography by one of the team members. The listing was put on the MLS site within 2 days and within four days, I had multiple offers. What more can you ask for? Throughout the process I met a number of the team that make up the Johannsen Group. They walked and talked me thru the selling of my home and reassured my concerns. Any calls I made to them were returned promptly. I would not hesitate to list or sell with this group of agents. Thank you all for a very positive experience. Sincerely,

Linda

Hi Kim,
Carol and I would like to add our names to the list of your many satisfied clients. We have, over the past several years become increasingly impressed with the expertise, honesty and just plain hard work that you and your staff have put into helping us to find a suitable buyer for the ocean front lot we listed with your firm. The care and attention and the stick-with-it-ness of you and Renee and others in your office have been exemplary-especially in the recent bleak market for sellers! Keeping us informed on a regular basis of market conditions and keeping your patience with our uncertainty finally paid off and we are most thankful. I could not give any real estate agency a higher recommendation. With our sincere thanks,

Ray & Carol

Hello Kim,
We just want to say thank you for working your magic again!
Over the last 15 years you have been involved with the purchase and sale of several of our properties. And in this bleak market you and your team again worked that magic for us and made the impossible possible! That magic is what keeps us coming back time after time!
Your staff is amazing. We have dealt with nearly every member of your team, on one level or another, throughout the last 10 months and found everyone to be courteous, knowledgeable, reliable and professional!
Thank you again Kim, to you and your team. You know if anybody asks, you are the realtor we would recommend and will recommend you highly!
Sincerely,

Dalyce & Guy

…Theresa has been all in since the first day she showed me homes in Crofton. She has had the answers to questions (and I had many), and if she didn’t readily have the answer, she VERY promptly found the answer… Not once did she blink an eye, she did everything with a smile and a, “no problem”. From putting a ladder into her tiny little car so we could climb into the attic, to listening to my rants, to bringing me gas, (because yes I ran out of gas, driving back to Duncan from the Notaries office in Lake Cowichan). Theresa is very knowledgeable and reliable and I trust her 100%…

I would like to thank Kim, Jitka and the whole Johannsen RE/MAX Team for helping me deal with the sale of my father’s home. They were efficient, organized, and timely & help me through the process of prepping and listing the home. Their advice led to more showings and a quick sale at a good price I would recommend Kim and his team for any of your real estate needs.

Thanks again,
