Out of province purchase was less stressful than imagined

It is our pleasure to write a letter of reference for Mr. Lee Johnson with Fair Realty in Creston, BC. Our experience with Lee began in March 2018 when we became interested in viewing recreation properties in the East Kootenays. Lee went beyond our expectations as a realtor. Not only did he provide seasoned knowledge about the Kootenay area in general but he was more than helpful when we chose our cabin in providing us with much needed technical information. This included local contacts for WETT inspector (for wood burning stoves), local home inspection services, septic tank services, notary public for legal services and potential renovation contractors. All of these services were invaluable to us as we do not reside in the Kootenay area. Services were arranged and completed in timely manner and were cost effective as well. Lee took time from his busy schedule to arrange and be present for the septic pump out and the home inspection on our behalf, which we very mush appreciated. Lee traveled to and from Creston to our cabin in Gray Creek (50 minutes away) to be present for these services and provided updates to us by email or text as to the outcomes. Upon first meeting Lee, we found his witty humor, broad real estate knowledge base, attention to detail and quick response time to text messages invaluable when we decided to pursue our purchase. Buying a home is an exciting and emotional process, working with Lee with his calm, reassuring nature, exceptional listening skills made this experience both enjoyable and less stressful than we imagined when undertaking an out of province purchase.

In summary, Lee is the best realtor we have had the pleasure of meeting and working with. His professionalism, considerate nature and real estate expertise made the purchase of our home both efficient, pleasant and a true dream come true.

Sincerely,

Shaun and Angela

Effort Paid Off

Lee,  I know I thanked you verbally many times for the extra special effort you put into marketing our house and property for us, but I feel that I should try to put it into an email for you as well.

You are the third realtor that we had listed with, but your effort far surpassed anything that we had seen to date. I feel that we were only successful because of the volume of work that you did to get the word out, especially since it was in the off season. It was almost unheard of to sell a high end property in the off season on Kootenay Lake, but we managed to come up with two competing offers largely due to your effort.

Thanks again. I would be happy to give you a personal reference if anyone wants to talk with me directly.

Best regards,

Ken Hoyle

A True Example Of How It Should Be Done

Dear Lee,

Now that the property has been sold, I would like to thank you for the excellent service that I feel I have received during the time our property was listed with you.

When I was first introduced to you through your branch manager I immediately felt comfortable with your personality and approach.

Your communications throughout the listing were excellent, which by the way many realtors lack in the business.

You were sincere in continuously keeping me up to date of the market and of potential purchasers showings etc.. Your business approach as a realtor is a true example as to how it should be done!

So many friends mention there is no added value in paying the commission to a realtor, well I beg to differ on this transaction when it applies to your level of service, it truly was worth it, specially in my case being a long distance customer.

I like to wish you well in all your future endeavors in the Creston Real Estate market.

Thank you

Sincerely

Selling My Parents’ Home

Lee was and is a terrific realtor- he is friendly, listens well, is highly skilled, hard working, very ethical, and has lots of energy. He really cares about each individual, their needs and their property.

He is keenly aware and sensitive that you are selling a house that holds important memories for you.

He holds that space for you with grace and honour. I was impressed by the way Lee does business- in a very solid way with market analysis and comparisons, sprinkled with suggestions.  In my case Lee was extremely helpful in helping me decide what I needed to do to get my parents home ready for sale. He also helped me organize a painter who was not only fabulous, but economical. This practical help reduced my stress considerably.

I have had a few realtors in my lifetime and what I feel stands out with Lee compared to others is his competence, his attention to detail, his follow thru, his debriefing with you after each viewing and his exceptional intercommunication skills. He was also a strong negotiator in the selling process.

I always felt I was respected as an integral part of the team.

Needed A Realtor To Sell Property Guys Listing

My husband and I were advertising our home for sale through Property Guys.com, when we were contacted by Lee, he told us he had people interested in viewing our home. All our interactions with Lee were very friendly, he kept us informed at all times, what was happening. We ended up selling our home to the first people who came to see it. Lee had an important part in this sale and we were happy with the final outcome.

Sincerely,
Wayne and Margaret Johns

Getting Familiar With A New Community

On behalf of my wife Genevieve and myself, I would like to commend Mr. Lee Johnson on the excellent service he provided as our Real Estate representative. With Lee’s help we purchased a property near Creston.

Our experience in dealing with Lee throughout the entire process was outstanding. He was at all times courteous, patient, and professional. At no time during the viewing of properties did we feel pressured or uncomfortable in any way. Lee took the time to really listen to what my wife and I were looking for and that was important to us.

Lee spent as much time as he could manage to take us around the community to help us familiarize ourselves with the area. He provided insightful information in regards to services, community organizations and businesses in the local area.

Were were impressed with Lee’s knowledge of residential properties, both Urban and in particular the intricacies of owning Rural property.

We would highly recommend the service of Mr. Lee Johnson as a Real Estate Agent for anyone contemplating REal Estate dealings in the Creston Valley Area.

Best Regards

A Very Difficult Decision

When my husband Gordon and I decided to sell our home, it was a very difficult decision, and we knew we needed a competent and honest realtor to make the move easier. We purposely chose Lee Johnson based on our previous experience with Lee from when he owned an insurance business in Creston. In that capacity we found Lee to be honest, sensible and accommodating.

When we hired Lee to be our realtor, we found he carried those positive qualities into his work as a realtor. As well, Lee was creative and determined in the ways he exposed our property to a wide range of clients. He used technology, as well as good old fashioned knocking on doors and staging open house sessions to present our home.

Lee’s caring and sincerity made our experience a positive one, and most importantly, he sold our house.

I would recommend Lee Johnson, without reservation, to anyone who needed a realtor.”
