What Our Clients are Saying


Clayton M.

Can't say enough great things about dealing with Dirk and I couldn't have bought my condo without him! As this was my first time buying property, I was very nervous and uninformed but Dirk was on top of everything and made the whole process very smooth. He was always professional and attentive. Whenever possible, he would be available to view listings and flexible with my schedule. Not only did he...

Craig & Emily Y.

Can't say enough about the advice, service and professionalism throughout the entire process from the first day we went out to look at places to the day we took possession. Would absolutely recommend to anyone look for a Real Estate Agent that will also provide unbiased advice and guidance to help you make the right decision.

Scott S.

Dirk went above and beyond the call of duty in helping me find a property that met all my needs. It was a process that took months of patience, persistence and many details, and he was a partner through the end, even when events went in unpredictable directions. His knowledge of Victoria is quite remarkable. I've worked with many realtors in the past, and have experienced a wide range of service ...

Dave & Lisseth J.

Dirk was our real estate agent for the sale of our condo in Victoria. Dirk was very knowledgeable and professional and made the whole process stress free. We were nervous about the process, but Dirk took us through it all step by step and got top dollar for our condo. I can't recommend Dirk enough!

Luke & Falon R.

Dirk was our realtor when we bought our first home. He was awesome to work with, we always felt like we knew what all our options were and he helped us to get what we want, while making sure we were comfortable with the deal we made. Thanks Dirk! Highly recommend you to friends and family

Stephen S.

Dirk was awesome! Helped my wife and I buy out first home in a hot Victoria market. He is very knowledgeable and explained everything very thoroughly. He seemed to be always available to answer any questions we had! He made the process stress-free and very enjoyable. I would highly recommend him to anyone! Thanks again Dirk for everything!
