To anyone looking for a great realtor:

Troy Gibson has restored much of my faith in the real estate profession. When my wife and I decided to sell our condo in Nanaimo our first step was to search for the most outstanding realtors in the area. We interviewed three of the best and Troy was easily our top choice. Why? Because he presented himself in a very professional manner, he listened to what we had to say, he provided us with clear information about the marketing process, and he mapped out a comprehensive strategy for selling our home. When we signed the listing agreement, we were confident that we could trust Troy to work hard and effectively on our behalf to attract qualified buyers through an imaginative advertising plan and his extensive network of contacts.

The condo was on the market the very next day, and immediately afterwards attractive colour flyers were produced and dramatic photos were published for the “virtual tour” on the Internet. As a result, we had more than 40 showings, each of which was arranged through a courteous arrangement by Troy’s office. After our unit had been on the market for 30 days without an offer we became concerned that something was wrong with our package, but Troy, after a careful review of our situation, encouraged us to persevere. The reassurance was appreciated.

Finally, after almost two months, not one but two solid offers were presented. We accepted the best proposal but unfortunately the sale fell through due to a bad case of “cold feet”. Once again Mr. Gibson stepped in to save the day, and the very next week we had two more offers. The final sale was negotiated with Troy’s expert assistance, for the full asking price and with other terms in our favour. Needless to say, we were extremely happy and satisfied with the outcome.

I have no hesitation in recommending Troy Gibson. Throughout our dealings he impressed us as a top professional, honest and trustworthy, who was able to use his expert knowledge and experience of the real estate market to sell our property within a reasonable time . We appreciated his pleasant personality, his promptness, his positive attitude, his business-like approach, his attention to detail, and his interest in putting clients first.
