Testimonials

On the recommendations of a number of friends, we chose to list and purchase with Brenda and have been nothing short of delighted with the decision.

Brenda brought a string of assets to our real estate sale and purchase:  honesty and trustworthiness, keen business acumen, excellent knowledge of the local real estate market, an engaging personality, and strong communication and bargaining skills.  She has also cultivated excellent contacts with moving-related business people in the area:  this will save you having to search out essential services on your own.

We greatly appreciated Brenda’s responsiveness in providing quick feedback on the results of our own home-showings and in alerting us to any new properties on the market.  In the sale of our home, and our purchase of our new home, she readily grasped our requirements and applied excellent negotiating skills to quickly arrive at mutually satisfying sale/purchase arrangements.

Brenda is a true real estate professional.  Just as we would engage her again for any future transaction, we recommend her to you without reservation for your own real estate requirements.

If you want your property sold, Brenda Nicolls is the realtor you need. From signing with Brenda to turning over keys for the new owners – our place was sold in 2 months.

Every detail was discussed with us prior, during and after the sale of our property. Brenda knows real estate!

We have dealt with about ten realtors since we personally started buying and selling property and the best and most professional realtor we have encountered is without any doubt Brenda Nicolls. She has excellent communication and reporting skills and handled a difficult sale in a most professional and diligent manner over a protracted period as conditions and problems unrelated to the selling price were encountered and dealt with.

In the last twenty years we have also been involved professionally with approximately two hundred residential developments that were sold either by realtors using the MLS system or by sales personnel employed directly by the developer. Brenda Nicolls, while not involved in these developments, shone out as a star amongst them and we have no hesitation in recommending her to anyone requiring the services of a realtor.

Brenda Nicolls has acted as our realtor in four property transactions over the last ten years, most recently in 2016  in the sale of a Qualicum Beach property.  Once again her high level of support, excellent advice and attention to detail was greatly appreciated.   I recommend Brenda to any seller or buyer in the area – she provides outstanding professional service.

Words can never express the kindness, the gratitude, the heartfelt compassion that you took with us and selling our home. We were selling at a loss due to the market downturn and our situation and you went right to task. You kept us up to date with what was happening and you kept us calm thru the entire process. I have known many a realtor in my time…your professionalism is second to none…and way that you have with people makes anyone feel blessed to have you on their side.
You bring the realism to every deal with such grace and compassion that it’s no wonder you’re a success. Whenever anyone needs help in finding a home, selling a home or even looking for a rental…it’s you that will always come to top of mind. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts and when our time is right for you to help us purchase the next dream home!! Thank you!

Thank you for working with us. I really appreciate all of your patience and insight around finding a house that was great for us. Also, thank you for making the house-buying process a LOT less intimidating. There are so many people to meet and so much paperwork! Wow! Thank you for sending us in all the right directions in the right order 🙂

We met Brenda when we were buying the house we recently sold, as she was the listing agent. As time went on we decided to downsize and the first person who popped into our minds was Brenda. We contacted her a number of months before we listed the property and determined where it should be priced and when would be a good time to list. We did as we were advised and the property had an offer the second day of the listing. As the property was quite large and the buyer was astute there was large laundry list of subjects that needed to be addressed to complete this deal. Brenda worked through the list, had the contacts who could verify information to make the new property owner happy, and the subjects were lifted in an orderly process . We thank Brenda for her hard work, expertise and dedication .

I am very grateful that I found you.  I have sold a few properties over the years and have never experienced the excellent level of service, professionalism and dedication that you provide.  Thank you for your hard work.  Your advice and suggestions sold the property in a very short time period.  You went above and beyond in all areas, right from the smallest issue to the largest.  Thank you again!

We recently had the experience and privilege of having Real Estate agent Brenda Nicolls sell our home. It was a very solid and rapid sale that was engineered with precision and professionalism by Brenda. Our interests were always forefront and Brenda’s responsiveness and attention to detail transitioned us through the sale, purchase of a new home and move to Comox.

Throughout the process she was always personable whilst maintaining her professional integrity and there was genuine follow up to ensure everything went smooth. A very sincere thank you to Brenda.

How can we thank you enough for the time and effort you invested in helping us sell our home.  You know how much we dreaded the process but thanks to you and all the sound advice you provided, it turned out so much better than we could have thought or dreamed – even though I had some panic attacks after the deed was done in such short notice. And then you introduced us to yet another incredible person with whom we will work toward building another house/home. We feel Randy Marston(and Teresa) is cut out of the same mold as you are. We are honoured to know and work with people such as you and Randy. Thank you from the bottom on our hearts.

Brenda has been professional in every aspect of her relationship with us and continually demonstrated integrity and diligence in all of her efforts. Her depth of knowledge of the community and marketing strategies are exemplary. We are so thankful that she was our realtor and would unreservedly use her services again. It is no surprise that Brenda is always one of the top realtors in Oceanside. Thanks again, Brenda!

Brenda Nicolls is one dynamic lady.  She is very dedicated to the selling of your home.  She works very hard and is very positive at all times.    The one thing that meant a lot to me is that she is always in touch with you, keeps you updated on any happenings in the market relative to your type of sale.  She has a wonderful way of assuring you there is someone out there ready to buy your home.  On the flip side she has the same work ethics to find you a home.  Thank you, Brenda

Selling a home can be a stressful experience, but working with Brenda reduced the stress considerably and even made the experience enjoyable. Unfailingly positive, honest and realistic in her approach and always accessible, she pulled out all the stops in marketing and negotiating the sale of our patio home. The best aspect of working with her was her communication with us. She always offered timely feedback on showings and helpful advice on staging our home, even occasionally gracing it with flowers from her garden.
We would enthusiastically recommend Brenda to anyone considering selling or purchasing a home in Oceanside. Not only did we have an excellent realtor; we gained a good friend in the process.

We would like to thank you for helping mum with her “downsizing”. From the sale of her larger home to finding a cozy new home, you remained patient, pleasant & professional from beginning to end and beyond.  With your connections in Oceanside, you were able to keep us informed and updated throughout the entire process. We would not hesitate in recommending your services to anyone planning to sell or buy their home.
Thank you

Dear Brenda;  Not only are we grateful to you for having located the perfect home for us but also for your numerous helpful suggestions about needed resources, i.e. inexpensive moving co, home inspection and the list goes on.  Your patience is admirable! And on top of all this support we got a fabulous gift from you. THANK YOU for everything!  Ernie & Mariane

Being expatriate Canadians, selling our condo in Q.B. was always going to be a challenge. Fortunately, a friend in the area recommended Brenda to us. Due to the distance and the different time zone, communication was always going to be
very important and Brenda kept us informed of everything; advertising opportunities, potential buyers, viewings and feedback, even though this must have been at very inconvenient times for her. She was unfailingly enthusiastic, informative and encouraging and was very proactive with practical problems with the condo which we were unable to sort out ourselves due to the distance involved. Nothing seemed to overwhelm or annoy her and when we entered the offer stage, her negotiation skills were second to none!
It was a real pleasure dealing with Brenda and if we were ever to re-enter the real estate market on the Island then there is only one agent we would call.’
Kind regards,
Jeremy & Marian

Brenda. I want to thank you for all the time, effort and hard work you put into selling our home. I know it was challenging from the get go, but thank you for hanging in and seeing us through the sale. I’m sure the long distance communication was a trial in itself but you handled that (and us) in such a patient and professional manner, believe me, it was apreciated. Thanks again for everything and I’ll certainly recommend you to others. Cheers,
Ruth and John

Ron and I thank you, not only for your professionalism, but the way nothing was rushed.  We are grateful for the length of time taken with us. In some ways, we hope we don’t feel that we should move just yet, but will certainly keep you in mind to contact when that day arrives.
Sincerely, Ron and Pauline

In listing our property we found Brenda to be very knowledgeable of the current real estate market. Her advice lead to a timely and successful sale.
In purchasing our new home, Brenda took the time to determine our needs and had the patience to guide us in finding a very suitable property.
We really appreciated Brenda’s honesty, punctuality, professionalism, and straight forward advice.

My husband and I made the difficult decision to leave the home we have loved and nurtured for 20 years, to downsize to a more manageable property. We could not have done this so well without the guidance and assistance of Brenda! She was never too busy for us, priced our house well (in a very tricky market) and consequently it sold in 3 months, and led us to a new purchase of a lovely patio home, within the same time frame.
Brenda is honest, ethical and hardworking. Both Trevor & I have recommeneded her already and will be proud to do so again & again!

We came to know Brenda after having worked with three other agents on Vancouver Island. We desired to buy property on Vancouver Island and, because we reside in the US, we needed an agent willing to roll up their sleeves and do a lot of leg work for us to make our periodic visits to Vancouver Island worth the effort. Our previous agents (who were all with big real estate brokerages) failed us time and time again, and we were very discouraged. We then ran into Brenda, who represented a seller of a property we found on our own. Brenda was very helpful and a breath of fresh air for us. We liked her so much that we engaged her to be our agent. And, with Brenda’s professional attitude and strong work ethic, we were able to buy several properties.

I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your honesty and your hard work. We really enjoyed working with you. We both agreed that when it came time to sell our house, you’d be the woman for the job! You made a great impression on us and we really appreciated your sincerity and honesty! Thanks again for everything.

Dear Brenda,
Gord and I thank you so much for all your kindness and thoughtfulness over the past year. Your patience, understanding and perseverance during the marketing and eventual sale of our home was so appreciated. Staying in your Mom’s studio was a tremendous bonus as a retreat after so many hectic moving days. You truly went over and above as a realtor. Thank you so much!
