Just wanted to take a second and comment on the outstanding service and support we received from Kelly Whitton during our recent home purchase.

Kelly was extremely helpful and knowledgeable throughout this entire process, and her insight into the region was very beneficial to us as we looked for our new home.  Kelly was very patient during our search and was always quick to respond in a friendly manner. At no point did we feel pressured into moving at a pace other than our own, and Kelly was always available to answer the myriad of questions that we sent her way. Having no prior relationship with Kelly, it quickly became apparent that Kelly was working with us to meet our needs and was very thorough and professional throughout this entire time. This process went on for over a year and Kelly was gracious, understanding and supportive of our situation.

I would highly recommend Kelly to assist in helping others find a home, and feel comfortable that she will deliver the same level of service, insight and dedication to meeting your home buying needs.

I was first introduced to Rob when clients of mine moved from Ontario to Nanaimo and hired Rob to represent them in the purchase of their new home in Nanaimo. 

I was immediately impressed with Rob’s professionalism and attitude. Through the purchase transaction Rob proved to be well organized and very knowledgeable about his business and the local market.

As a licensed Mortgage Broker, I’ve now had the opportunity to work with Rob on a few other real estate transactions. Rob continually approaches his business with expertise and a positive attitude. Even through one of the most challenging transactions of my career, Rob kept a cool head and calmly helped guide our clients through the process. 

I look forward to working with Rob again and highly recommend you contact Rob for your next real estate transaction.

Recently we needed a Realtor in Nanaimo with very short notice, and Charlene Watson quickly offered her services. Charlene was extremely professional, friendly, knowledgeable and expedient in providing all the information needed. When we ended up in a multiple offer purchase situation she was diligent and communicated every detail quickly ensuring we were successful in obtaining the condo. Charlene and VI Homes are our go to realtors in Nanaimo. You won’t be disappointed.

I am currently completing my 5th transaction with Cory.   He started representing me before I moved to the Island and continues to do so now that I am here.I respect his honesty in my selling and buying.   There is no pressure to purchase.   He wants to find the right property that suits my needs.   I trust his opinion of what we view. There is no question in my mind that Cory Chapman will do his upmost to give you top notch service with honesty and fairness.

Cory and his partners provided excellent service to us in selling our home and locating a new one within Nanaimo. He was patient, professional and responsive. Cory has a good, calm manner and makes a very good realtor. When he was off for a few days his partner stepped in to assist seamlessly. They are a solid team with a wealth of experience. I highly recommend them for selling or buying a home in Nanaimo.

During our selling and purchasing process of our home our Realtor Kelly Whitton has made our dreams a reality. Overcoming hurdles, obstacles and barriers were among the easiest to say the least. With Kelly's knowledge, expertise and perseverance she was able to make the process seamless and help guide us through. Her understanding and compassion helped us through whatever lied ahead. I am grateful to have made the phone call and met her. Having had several realtors with different homes I can truly say she is a realtor for life! Our dream home came true and her legacy will be with me and my family's. I look forward to working with her in the future.

Cory was very knowledgeable and professional. He made buying our first house a smooth and successful experience. We would definitely use Cory again and thoroughly recommend him for anyone else looking to buy or sell a house.

We met Rob at an open house and knew right away that we had found the right Realtor.  His delicious, homemade cookies reinforced our decision, of course ;) Right from the start, he took the time to listen to us and what we were looking for and helped us narrow in our search as he got to know us even more.  Rob has been a pleasure to work with, keeping us on track and making sure all of the important details were in in order so that everything went to plan. We would highly recommend him!

Cory is a terrific realtor. He's knowledgeable, sincere, polite and comes prepared whenever he has shown us a house. He's provided us with needed info, from municipal authorities, real estate stats., house comparable and his own valued personal opinions, when asked for. I would not hesitate to recommend Cory to anyone. He's a true professional.

Just finished working with Rob, Cory and the VI Home Group.  They not only sold my condo in 10 days, but sold it for more than I thought I could get!  I walked into the Re/Max office in Nanaimo looking for an agent to sell my condo and, from that meeting until the final closing, they kept me updated with progress until they sold the unit like they said they could do.  Their work was professional, timely, and, most importantly, I always felt like they were trying to get the best deal for me.  I would ask these two gentlemen to do it again for me if I need to buy or sell a place in the future.  Thanks for keeping your word and for getting me the price you said I could receive!

When we decided to move across the country from Ontario to Vancouver Island, we knew we needed a realtor we could trust and who would go the extra mile to help us find the perfect home while making a long distance move. Rob did not disappoint!

Rob was available to answer questions at any random hour of the day that we decided to call and he dropped everything to show us listings when we showed up in Nanaimo last minute and unannounced. Rob was always quick to respond to requests and questions and we felt like he was always on top of even the smallest details.

We were impressed with Rob's ability to quickly and correctly assess what we were looking for in our dream home. He helped us navigate the decision making process and in the end we were able to find the perfect home for our family! We would recommend Rob without hesitation!
