Andy Stephenson, SRES Real EstateSotheby's International Realty Canada

Testimonials

"I have known Andy Stephenson for a long time. He sold me my first home and he has continued to represent me over the years. The best thing about Andy is his consistency. He provides a high level of professional service and this never varies. He is extremely knowledgable about the market, pricing and legal matters. He has guided my decision making in all my purchases and sales and I feel very confident when he expresses his opinion. He is not driven by the sale, but rather by the desire to build a long term relationship and that means his actions have to be both accountable and reliable. He has prevented me from buying homes that were not good for me when I got caught up in the moment, he has encouraged me when the home was what I wanted and I couldn't see it. Finally, he has sold at the right time, negotiated for a great price and protected my investment. I have always recommended Andy to my friends and I will continue to do so. There is not a better realtor: you will be very happy with the work ethic, knowledge, professionalism and outcomes."

Jenny Martin

"Andy was recommended to me by my real estate agent in Calgary. He took the trouble to introduce himself to me by stopping by my house in Calgary. After my house sold, I booked a flight to Victoria for a condo hunting excursion. Andy met me at the Airport and we started our search. I had only been to Victoria as a tourist so I was petrified at the life change/decision I was making and full of doubts and fears. He had an extensive list of condos and townhouses to view. We looked at a wide variety and I ended up making an offer on a condo across from Beacon Hill Park. I never felt I like I was rushed, he offered excellent advice and helpfully pointed out various things and provided information about condos and condo living. This was really appreciated as I was new to condo life - also new to British Columbia. Andy was always professional and I felt he always went the extra mile to be helpful. Generous and thoughtful, I now consider him a friend."

"Andy Stephenson is a thoughtful and seasoned professional. His intuitiveness in understanding and meeting my needs was impressive. He was prompt, efficient and thorough, characteristics that I believe are essential in developing and maintaining business efficacy. Andy rates number one on my list of Victoria realtors."

Lisa Issac

"Andy Stephenson does an impressive job preparing highlight sheets, taking photos, and presenting the property for sale. He also works very hard to do everything possible in closing the sale. This is exactly the kind of realty service that makes a difference, and ensures the posting of a SOLD notice."

Doris adds: "He is cute and a smart dresser."

Marilyn & Lorne Brack

"I had a tough job - convince my girlfriend to move from her beautiful home where she raised her children and have her move into our first home together, just the two of us. I connected with Andy Stephenson and I could not have been happier.  Andy has a gift and it is nice to experience the application of it. His gift is his ability to gather information from a variety of sources and then synthesize it together for a solid understanding of the client needs. He not only listened to what we needed, he observed how the home we were leaving was experienced by my girlfriend. Then he found us a home that reflected what we had and loved, and what we wanted to move forward in your lives. On top of all this skill he was always on time, answered all questions, and very professional in his demeanour at all times. He will always be the only realtor I use and I highly recommend him!"

Kent Bienert

"Andy was instrumental in helping us find our dream home in Victoria in a very short period of time.  He is very professional and offers all the expertise you would ask for in a realtor, but he is also very personable and is a great listener.  You get the feeling immediately that his number one priority is to make you happy, whether you are buying or selling a home.  I would highly recommend Andy to anyone looking for a top notch realtor in Victoria."

Jane & Rick Daykin

"Andy Stephenson was great to work with. He has his finger on the Victoria market and was very proactive in getting our deal done. We will definitely use Andy again."

Diane & John Harris
"I have never worked with a more professional and calm realtor and I have done about 7 real estate transactions over a thirty five year period. Andy has the respect of his peers and when he deals with you -- as either a buyer or seller--he listens patiently and responds to all your questions quickly without delay. I personally felt so calm throughout a very quick purchase and selling period (less than 2 weeks) in a very heated market in Victoria and I owe the excellent outcome in both cases entirely to him. His team --Curtis and Murray--were efficient and also fun to deal with as we worked on presenting my condo in its "best light." The photos he arranged to be taken of my property and the video produced was nothing short of spectacular. Thank you so much Andy, Curtis and Murray for making what could have been a very stressful period in my life a cake walk :)"
