Thank you Maureen for selling our family home. You go above and beyond for your clients. Selling our home was bitter/sweet and you made the whole process much easier. You are a caring and compassionate realtor.Rob & Wendy Thomson
We wanted to thank you for representing us in both buying and selling our homes. Your dedication is clear in all that you do. We quickly realized that you were flexible, accessible and friendly, a true professional. We were full of city bylaw questions and if you didn't know the answer you knew how to find out, which was much appreciated. Your ability to make us feel like we were your only clients was amazing. We thank you again for your time, commitment, expertise and your attentive nature. We will be passing on our recommendation of your services to friends and familyJordy & Silvia Bakken
It was our good fortune to have had Maureen Mackenzie recommended to us when we were looking for realtor to assist us in our search for a new home in the Port Alberni area. We had visited Port Alberni on numerous occasions and were very taken with the community. We had done an extensive internet search and had forwarded a number of prospective properties to Maureen that we were interested in viewing. Maureen was very candid with us, essentially stating that there were reasons why those properties were priced so low. She provided us with invaluable guidance in choosing other properties in more suitable locations. With her help we found both a beautiful home that we love in a quiet yet central area close to all amenities. Furthermore, she helped us through the negotiation process, ultimately saving us several thousands of dollars. Throughout our search she conducted herself with grace and professionalism. It is without hesitation that we would recommend Maureen to any person interested in purchasing or selling a home in the Alberni Valley.Bob Thurley & Jo-Ann Koenders
We are so grateful to Maureen for her patience and encouragement during the time it took to find a buyer for our Townhouse. Throughout the rather drawn-out process, she was always encouraging and this really helped us to maintain a balanced outlook. And when a buyer did turn up, her expertise and positive outlook made the closing very smooth.
Thanks so much Maureen and
Very Best WishesJudy & Jim

We found our perfect home in a great location.Tyler & Taryn Coates
Maureen was very knowledgeable about all the properties she showed us and pointed out things we may have missed. We appreciate all the attention to detail and potential you saw in all the properties.
You worked so hard to find us the perfect home and didn't stop until the job was done! We are truly grateful and blessed we had you for our first home buying experience. We couldn't imagine a more perfect outcome.
Thank you so much.
We searched for a while to find the right realtor to help us search for our first home. Once we finally found Maureen, we knew that she was the one. Maureen was very professional, friendly, knowledgeable, helpful and was really great about being available when we needed. She was always on time, even though at times we weren’t. She was always prompt at getting back to us, whether it was through telephone, email or text. We had a lot of questions as it was a huge decision for us to make and she was great about answering them all. We really kept her on her toes by going back and forth on some of our decisions and we really tested her with our wish list and budget. She was great about it. Even when we changed our minds last second and went an entirely different direction on the fly, she was great about it. She still had a smile on her face and was happy to help us. I appreciate her patience as I know we were sometimes difficult to deal with and we were really demanding of her time. We finally decided to buy a foreclosure and Maureen helped and supported us the entire way through. She continued to help and support us to complete the deal after we won the house. I’m so happy that I chose Maureen. If I buy another home in the future, Maureen will be the first person that I call. Cheers to a great realtor!Natalie Watson
I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated all the hard work you did selling my house on McKnight St. I have no doubt, I made the right decision; having you list the house. I was amazed at your expertise and knowledge to put together the multiple transactions; required. I have never had a Realtor who was so accessible, through phone, texting or emailing; you were always right there. You also had a really good sense of how the house should look to give maximum appearance and value to prospective buyers. Something not lost on me. I find myself, day to day using your methods, on my new house.
I wouldn’t hesitate for a moment recommending you to my family or friends, as an honest and expert Realtor.
I just wanted to take a few minutes to say thanks...
We have been in our house now a few weeks and we are truly happy with our decision. Being one of the biggest decisions a person makes in there lives, it is not ne to go through blind. With your assistance Marilyn and I were very comfortable and confident in every step of the way. We noticed stand out qualities that you delivered to us, ability to maintain positive perspective, attention to detail and your professionalism... all were in the highest standard that we have encountered. We appreciate you always kept your word on getting back to us immediately with any request we had, excellent communication. You were always available and early for appointments (felt like a priority, important to you).
Bottom line, Awesome Job!
We will not hesitate to recommend your service with confidence.
Thanks again.Derek & Marilyn Scanlan
Maureen helped stage our home and provided some great ideas to improve its appearance. She also offered prompt feedback to us each time it was shown. We worked with her to buy and sell, and were well represented in both cases. We felt like we were in very good hands throughout the whole process. She is personable, positive and caring, and always made herself available to answer any questions we had. We would highly recommend Maureen to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

I would highly recommend Maureen Mackenzie as a Realtor. From the beginning she was professional, knowledgeable and prepared. She kept me informed of how my home was marketed; this was especially important living in a different city. When the house sold, quickly I might add, the transaction was seamless!
Moving to Canada from England was a daunting prospect and promised to be a stressful event to say the least. So many decisions to make, so many pitfalls, where do we go, do we buy, do we rent, do we sort it before we go, do we wait until we get there? Then, having narrowed down the where, we came across Maureen's site which sold Port Alberni to us completely. When we got to Port Alberni and finally met Maureen we knew we were in safe, competent hands. Maureen is definately the person to help you find your special home, nothing was too much trouble or difficult for her, from finding properties which ticked all the boxes, taking you to viewings in her own vehicle (we were in a large RV, not the best vehicle to go veiwing house after house in), to thinking outside the box and knowing what you were after better than you did.
Maureen is an exceptional realtor, she will go the extra mile, upon mile, upon mile …. to find the right property for you. Even offering to help in areas which would not normally be within her remit. She is professional but easy going, totally approachable, reliable, honest, exceptionally hard working; pulling out all the stops; and consciencious.
We whole heartedly recommend Maureen to anyone looking to buy a property in Port Alberni regardless of whether your local, or thousands of miles away as we were. Maureen well done and a very very big thank you, you made this part of our journey a walk in the park.

We recently listed our home with Maureen. Throughout the process we were very happy with her service and her approach. She gave us a reasonable price expectation which she backed up with suitable comparable properties. The pictures she took of our home were excellent. Maureen was always available for our calls and emails and took as much time with us as we needed. She always gave us feedback on showings. In the end we were lucky enough to have more than one offer and Maureen navigated us calmly through the process of working with two offers. We were very happy to have worked with her and highly recommend her as a realtor.
Karin & Dan Legg
We had the distinct pleasure of working with Maureen Mackenzie in the sale of our family home in Port Alberni. Maureen is a professional realtor who is dedicated, extremely knowledgeable about the market, and most important, very honest with her clients about what it will take to market their home in a reasonable time frame. She explained everything and her integrity is impeccable. I would say that Maureen is an absolute treasure and anyone who has her as their realtor should consider themselves lucky! We always felt that Maureen was doing everything possible to make the sale, while at the same time truly listening to us, and responding to our needs as her client. She worked for us, and not just for the sale. I would recommend Maureen to everyone as she really does have a passion for her job and that says it all! It was a truly wonderful experience working with Maureen. Thank you for your hard work, dedication and guidance through the negotiations.

Maureen was very patient with me and showed me a lot of homes that she new were not for me but still took the time to arrange the viewings upon my request. I am so happy she did this as it gave me an idea of what was out there to choose from. I ended up putting an offer on a foreclosure property and when the day came to go to court I was under a lot of stress and Maureen was so good to me. I ended up getting my new home in court that day. I would not hesitate to hire Maureen again as my Realtor and every time I get the chance I recommend her to people. Thank you again for everything Maureen.Pauline
I recently sold and purchased homes in Port Alberni and choose Maureen Mackenzie as my real estate agent. From the start of the process Maureen was a true professional, giving an accurate assessment of my homes value and ideas that ultimately led to the sale of my house. As I moved forward in a search for a new home Maureen was very patient, finding me numerous homes to look at and always willing to arrange viewings on short notice and around my schedule. Maureen's dedication and work ethic found me the perfect new home that fit my family and my budget. I would recommend Maureen Mackenzie to anyone who is looking to buy or sell real estate in the Alberni Valley, without hesitation.Chris Norris
Maureen was super patient and never once made us feel pressured in any way. She was very easy to work with and found us a house that we never thought would be possible, at this stage in our lives. It was evident that Maureen took a lot of pride in her work and we would recommend her to anyone and everyone!
Tyler & Alisha
My husband and I were seriously admiring a listing of Maureen's for several months, until Maureen was asked by another realtor if she knew of any large homes in a specific area coming on the market. She thought of us right away because she knew we wanted to sell in the Spring. It was a bit earlier than planned, but we agreed to list our home and the house sold immediately which allowed us to buy our dream home we had been admiring. Maureen is an awesome realtor who cares about her customers and always takes your call. She really listens to her customers and wants to make people happy. She is patient, very helpful and always keeps a positive outlook. She helped us through the transition of a quick sale and made it very smooth. She is an awesome interior designer which was a bonus for us, as she also helped us through renovations with her special eye for colors and styles as well as great contacts to do the work. Thank you so much Maureen:)) We would absolutely recommend you 100%.

Maureen Mackenzie was recommended to me by a friend . I`m so glad , she helped me buy my first house on my own , and I consider myself lucky to have her as my realtor. She supported me and guided me through the whole process . Her knowledge of real estate both buying and selling process is amazing, I knew that she was working hard to get the best deal for me and she always found a way to get me through the obstacles that inevitably arise in the real estate market. Basically I didn't have to worry about a thing . She had everything covered and went above and beyond , when she would actually drive to my work to fit around my schedule so that I could sign the papers I needed too. She explained everything , and her integrity is impeccable. I would say that Maureen is an absolute treasure and anyone who has her as their realtor should consider themselves lucky ! Working in health care I think its safe to say that I would recommend her services to anyone in a heart beat.Marla Jaeger
We retained Maureen's services after our house sat on the market for six months with little interest or movement. Maureen came in, took a look around our house, gave us some ideas to spruce up the place and give it a fresh new look. Soon thereafter she created a buzz in the air and potential buyers started to show interest with many coming back for a second and third look. Maureen was continuously hosting open houses, taking new photos and advertising. She made us feel like we were her only clients, despite having many others. Maureen is "by far" the best realtor we have ever had.Richard & Annette Stern
Maureen, you worked so diligently selling our house. ( And Travel Trailer :)) Thank you so much for doing such a professional job.
I bought my first home in April 2011, and Maureen was my real estate agent. She was very positive, supportive, honest, patient, and never pushy. She always had time to return my calls and make me feel important to her. She also has incredible talent with interior design and a special eye for the potential in every home.
I would absolutely recommend Maureen for your real estate agent.Matt Banys
Maureen Mackenzie was an awesome Real Estate Agent. She was very helpful and answered all of the questions I had about each of the properties. She was very dedicated and searched hard for the house that had everything I asked for. Apart from all this she made buying a house fun! I would definitely ask for her assistance with buying a second home in the future.
Maureen Mackenzie was very helpful with the purchase of my first home. She worked hard with me and understood my vision. She made my dreams come true and for a lower price then I could ever have imagined. Thank you so much!
“I would highly recommend Maureen Mackenzie if you are looking for a top notch realtor.

We can say” wow, great service” thanks again Maureen. “

After making a decision to sell our property, we retained the services of Maureen Mackenzie. We do not live on the Island, and therefore in our absence we really needed someone to be extremely reliable and competent in every aspect of this sale process, Maureen has exceeded our expectations in this regard. After first meeting Maureen, we were very pleased with both her knowledge of the area both as a resident, and knowledge of the market area professionally. After listing the property Maureen has always kept us informed of any activity of the property including, for example, subtle communications of how many fliers have been taken. Her approach in this regard has been a refreshing pleasure as these updates have been just that, they have been updates void of any pressure to make any quick drastic changes. We have always felt that Maureen has been doing everything possible to make the sale, while at the same time truly listening to us, and responding to our needs as her client. I absolutely feel that she is working for us, and not just for the sale. I would highly recommend Maureen and would not hesitate to retain her again.Dave & Kimberly Menzies
I listed my home with Maureen Mackenzie recently and want to say what a pleasure it was working with her. I found Maureen to have a lot of integrity - something that is important to me. She also sold my home in seven weeks, and that is a great bonus! She was on the job, held two open houses during that time, kept in touch constantly and was always professional. With her certification in Interior Design, she was great at guiding me through the staging process, which allows perspective clients to see your home at its best. The pictures she took of the interior were awesome and really caught everyone's attention as a place of interest. I would recommend Maureen to everyone as she really does have a passion for her job and that says it all! Thanks Maureen from your very happy client, now friend.Kate Deakin
I have had the pleasure of working with Maureen over the past few months on a property we have listed. What I appreciate the most about Maureen is that she is always keeping in touch and she has a positive attitude. She is truly interested in selling properties and homes for fair market value and matching the buyers to the home of their dreams. She listens to what we have to say and gives back honest feedback backed by facts and figures. I do not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is interested in buying or selling.Ann Karin Reite
