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.
