Maureen helped me and my two sisters, navigate through the difficult task of selling my father’s home ( our family home of 50 years ) after his sudden passing in July. We had multiple offers which could have been very stressful without Maureen’s compassion and expertise. I would highly recommend her as an honest , ethical and professional real estate agent. Glenda Castelsky
In the summer, fall and winter of 2020 we had the great pleasure of having Maureen Mackenzie as our Real Estate agent. She worked above and beyond to help my son and his girlfriend get the home of their dreams. With homes selling at an unbelievable rate in Port Alberni, Maureen was definitely working 24/7 to secure them a great home at a competitive price. As my son was a first time home buyer she had a ton of patience in explaining the whole process and facilitating it. We would definitely recommend Maureen to anyone looking to buy a home in Port Alberni. Sosa Family
After years of mortgage payments and home improvements we were looking for a professional who could help us realize the best possible return on our investment. Maureen was the right choice. Her personal attention, professionalism and communication of what buyers expect in our price range were keys in getting our home sold. The emphasis on timely and thorough feedback, particularly on the status of potential buyers was hugely helpful to us. We are more than completely satisfied.
She did an exceptional job selling our home. From her knowledge of the area, timely responses to every question and concern we had, to her always positive attitude during this tough time in our nation right now.
If your in need of a realtor, I would highly recommend Maureen. Anke and Detlev Braatz
" I was selling a house in Port Alberni as the executor and Maureen made it easy for me by being able to meet my schedule and perform some extra tasks at the house. I would definitely recommend Maureen to others." Bryan Jones Bryan Jones
"Maureen Mackenzie SOLD my mothers home in 2 days! She made the entire process as stress free as possible from start to finish, during the COVID19 pandemic. When it was time to get rid of some old furniture she stepped up and did so professionally and efficiently.
We are really happy with how everything worked out andf would not hesitate to work with Maureen again." Carmela Oldfield
Thanks Maureen for all your help in the sale of our mothers home. Moving a family member is hard enough....let alone in the middle of a pandemic. Your professionalism and kindness while dealing with some unusual requests is what we will remember and are grateful for. Maria Maria
I was excited to list my house with Maureen. She had come highly recommended by a close friend of mine and when I mether I knew she would be the person I'd love to work with. We listed my house just days before the Covid 19 isolation protocol started. Within days my excitement had turned to absolute horror. Would anyone come to see my house or consider buying it?? Maureen assured me that we had priced it right and that people were still looking for real estate. By the second week of the Covid 19 shutdown we had a viewing, offer and possible sale. This sale collapsed due to the buyers not getting financing. But, with the help of a Virtual Tour Video, we were back in the mix. Maureen arranged for Covid 19 friendly viewings with masks, gloves and booties, as I am immuno-compromised due to chemo. I felt completely safe and assured that I could re-enter my home safely after a viewing. We got an offer and sale in the second month at a price that we expected to get pre-Covid 19. I can honestly say this was the most "interesting" house sale I have ever done!! But, Maureen was calm, cool and collected and kept me informed, confident and assured that my house would sell. And it did!!I think she could teach a class in "How to Sell a House in a Pandemic". Thanks Maureen!! Darlene Rougeau
We started off trying to sell moms house ourselves. With no results to show we selected Maureen to get the job done because her response to our ask for a presentation was promt, personable and top-notch. We were delighted with the way she attended to the house, other realtors and their clients, the offers, the counter offers, the sale and the aftermath including a donation to a charitable cause in our name. Thanks Maureen from the Deakin Family. The Deakin Family
We were very lucky to have Maureen Mackenzie for our realtor. She was an amazing negotiator, very efficient in every way. She made the process very worry free for us. She is very friendly and kind.
We would highly recommend her. Donna Taylor
We found Maureen to be honest, dedicated and hard working throughout our sale. She brought in many viewings and we were able to close the transaction very quickly and satifactorily. She is an excellent realtor and we would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who asks. Trina & Richard Whittaker, Sproat Lake
Maureen Mackenzie is an agent with integrity, professionalism and knowledge, we are so happy she was there for us when we decided to list our mothers home for sale. You might say she held our hand throughout the entire process, making excellent suggestions, giving professional advice, notifying us of showings, giving us constructive feedback and always so patient with all of our questions. She will be my agent in any future dealings that I have with Real Estate and...I consider her my friend. Thank you Maureen, you are the best! Suzanne Jones
Many thanks to Maureen for the recent listing and selling of our home in Port Alberni. I felt comfortable as soon as I met her and Maureen was a pleasure to work with. She was immediately available whenever we needed her and always did her upmost to ensure the selling of our home went smoothly. I really appreciated how Maureen was always both professional, yet very kind and sensitive to any issues that came up. She went the extra distance for us, and this is something that unfortunately not everybody does in today's world.
If you are looking for a realtor to list or buy, I highly recommend Maureen as a realtor to work with. I know we will definately be passing on her name and calling her again in the future for any further transactions we might have! Rachel Reynolds
It was time to move on; my husband had passed away a year before, and a 4-bedroom home was just too big for me. My daughter suggested I have Maureen drop by and give us suggestions on how to get the house ready for listing.
Maureen impressed me right from that first meeting - professional and caring. Not only did she make realistic suggestions, within my means, but she also inquired where I was going to go. When I said I was hoping to rent a condo, she told me she knew of a condo I might be interested in! That first meeting gave me the assurance that “it was meant to be!”
Once we (my daughter and I) thought we had the house ready, Maureen came back and only had one suggestion that we had overlooked, then Maureen got the particulars to list the house for sale. I was so impressed with her professional manner and her fastidious method of making sure all “i’s” were dotted and “t’s” were crossed. (My husband and I, through our several moves during 57 years of marriage, purchasing six homes and selling five, had never had a realtor that was so thorough. The only one that came close was Margaret Crowley, here in Port Alberni, that diligently searched for our last home that we lived in for thirty years.)
The house was listed … and it was sold within the first 24 hours with an offer that I had no reason to counter-offer!
Maureen has been there for me right up until the closing date (today). I had a couple of questions, which she answered, but she also assured me that I could contact her any time if I had any further questions or concerns. And I believed her! How can you explain the calming reassurance that your realtor still cares about you? It’s been so terrific working with her and knowing she had me under her wing.
Yes, I am in the condo that she had suggested. And I am loving it. Maureen, I can’t thank you enough — for selling my home, telling me about the condo, and being someone I will never forget! Good luck in your future real estate endeavours; I will recommend you every chance I get!
With appreciation, Carol Nuttall
We would highly recommend Maureen to anyone who is looking for a hard working, dedicated and knowledgeable professional. We found Maureen to be extremely efficient, attentive and thorough on a consistent basis. She genuinely cared and was sensitive to the fact that we loved our home that we has to sell because circumstances have changed.
Within a few days of making our initial contact with her, she has a professional photographer at our home and the next thing we knew the listing was up and the first Open House was scheduled! She even went above and beyond to help us by offering to let our dog our prior to a showing and bring him back in because we were at work. She communicated with us after each showing in order to provide feedback and she made herself available to us by phone or text throughout the entire process, including after the house had been sold.
We especially appreciate her honestly and integrity. We found her to be extremely sincere and genuine in all out interactions. and as a result we had totaly trust and confidence in her. She made the sale of our house quite seemless and easy, as she had everything handled with expertise.
It was an absolute pleasure working with her and we would strongly encourage others to seek out the "Rock Solid" skills of this enthusiatic realtor!
Chris & Trish Jancowski
We had the pleasure of selling and purchasing a home with Maureen. Maureen worked extremely hard for us, going above on beyond to ensure our home sold without complication. Her knowlegde of the market, professionalism, honestly and integrity eliminated the stress associated with such large transactions. Maureen listened to our needs and found us the perfect home for our family. She was available, flexible and genuinely cared that she met our needs. We would highly recommend Maureen Mackenzie to anyone buying or selling their homes. Dave & Jeanette Badovinac
We can't say enough about the expertise, attentiveness, warmth and professionalism Maureen brought to selling our home and finding our new home, (which accomodated all our needs). She holds the best interest with her clients and communicates after viewings, giving feedback. Maureen is knowledgeable, helpfull, kind and "VERY PROFESSIONAL," these are a few of her many attributes. We highly recommend Maureen Mackenzie when buying or selling your next home.
Port Alberni, B.C. Ray & Linda Nicklin
I would strongly recommend Maureen to anyone considering buying or selling real estate in the Alberni Valley . She is an absolute pleasure to deal with, and handled every aspect of our transaction professionally and efficiently, while keeping everything seamless and hassle free for us. We had a challenging tenant situation to contend with, and she was a great resource in helping us to navigate this situation through the sale process. Maureen worked very hard for us, did a great job, and we couldn't be happier with the final results of our property sale.
After 25 years in our home we decided to sell, and contacted Maureen. Working with Maureen was a great experience from beginning to sale. Maureen was knowledgeable about the market, respectful of our expectations, an excellent communicator and highly professional. We appreciated her expertise and suggestions when preparing our home for listing. She thoroughly outlined the selling process and responded promptly when texted, emailed, or phoned. We had great confidence with her abilities as she guided us through the sale. The time Maureen spent with us was above and beyond. Choosing Maureen as our agent was a tremendous decision! Thanks Maureen! Lisa & Steve Gunther
Just wanted to say thanks again on behalf of my Mom and our family for your excellent care and professionalism during the marketing and sale of Mom's townhouse. You guided us through the process, kept us informed throughout and brought us to a successful sale and completion. We couldn't ask for more.
We were confident that you were our best choice in a realtor and once again you proved us right!
Many thanks! Jeanne Smith
With Maureen as my realtor selling my rental home while I lived in another town proved to be a non stressful, pleasant experience. Realtor pictures for the website were professionally done and gleaned lots of positive response. Maureen's positive attitude, constant communication about showings and informative feedback afterward kept myself and my renter in the loop at all times.
I thoroughly enjoyed working with this highly professional woman and will be tossing her name out freely to anyone looking to buy or sell.
Thanks for a job well done.
Sincerely, Lyn Young,
Many thanks Maureen for selling our home so successfully. We very much appreciated your enthusiasm and cheerfulness as well as your expertise and professional guidance. What impressed us the most is your skill to determine the selling price based on the marketable merits of the property rather than focusing solely on the residential BC Assessment.
You were always available to us and promptly responded to our emails and voice messages with all our questions. It is no wonder you are a recipient of the Royal LePage Director's Platinum Award.
In our 46 years of marriage, Bob's work took us from Montreal to Calgary and finally Vancouver Island. We have dealt with many realtors but you are second to none in our books. Should anyone we know have a need for a realtor we would recommend you in a heartbeat. It was a pleasure to meet you, get to know you and work with you. Bob & Halina Chopin
The decision to sell our family home was both bittersweet and emotional.
Our first meeting with you and the interior design suggestions you brought forward quickly resolved any misgivings. From that day until the completion of the sale you demonstrated support, professionalism, honesty and integrity. You not only respected our home but our feelings as well and for that we are truly grateful.
Because of your extra ordinary efforts on our behalf we are able to move towards a new journey, a new home and new memories.
Thank you, Maureen. Mike & Rosemary Mesic
We recently had the pleasure of listing our home with Maureen. Right from the first meeting we knew we had made the right choice. Maureen is extremely professional, knowledgable and competent. She put us at ease that we had made the right choice as she seems to find the perfect balance of being an extraordinary real estate agent while at the same time relating to our needs and concerns along the way, no matter how trivial they may be!
She always followed up with us after each showing and if she didn't hear back from the agent showing the house she would contact them to get potential clients feedback on our home. There is nothing worse than spending hours cleaning your house and then having no response after someone views it! As well, Maureen always responded promptly to any calls, texts or emails that we sent her.
We have dealt with many real estate agents through our eight moves over the last 30 years and Maureen by far has been the most superior. She is a very sincere, genuine and caring person! We would highly recommend her to anyone considering listing their home." Steve & Monica Soderstrom
We have been in our new home for three months now and are thoroughly enjoying it. As first time home buyers, Maureen listened to our needs and answered the many questions that we had. She walked us through the process of buying our first home and explained every step from beginning to end – even following up after we moved in to make sure that everything was okay with the house! She kept in close contact with us throughout our search and worked hard to arrange for us to see listings that met our needs. We would highly recommend Maureen to anyone looking for a new home! Tyler & Karleen Cheetham
We have enjoyed the last several months in our new home so much and we wanted to write and thank you. Upon your first visit with us, you were honest, sincere and supportive. We were so pleased with the amount of information and experience that you brought to the table. Thank you for being so flexible and always being there when we needed you. We are truly grateful to have found a realtor with such passion and dedication for her clients.
We highly recommend Maureen for any real estate transaction that you may be considering. You will not be disappointed. Thank you for being an extraordinary real estate agent! Mike Bowater & Wendy Hayes
As a member of the RCMP, now retired, I have had the opportunity to work with many realtors over the years. Maureen was recommended by a friend who stated that "Maureen will work hard for you”. No more of an understatement could have been made. Of all the realtors that we have used over the years Maureen is the one that my wife and I will remember. During the process I learned about Maureen’s values, both personal and professional, and found them to be profound and true. I expect a realtor to be professional. That is easy and Maureen knows her profession. What touched my wife and I were Maureen’s values of honesty, integrity and respect. There is no “on/off” switch for these three values. You either have them or you don’t. There was not one moment, on or off task or business, that Maureen did not convey those three values to us. That built trust and it never wavered throughout the entire sale process. I would highly recommend this outstanding and genuine person to assist you in your Real Estate needs. Roberta and Inspector Gord Wellar, RCMP (R’td)
I will always recommend Maureen for real estate needs to everyone who will listen. Maureen was never to busy to talk, no matter how important the conversation was. We shared confidential thoughts and feelings with Maureen with trust. She is a very hardworking, honest, dedicated, thorough, and caring individual, who never gave up on us or our house, and when it sold very suddenly, she guided us and assured us until we found our forever home. We feel as though we have made a new friend and will always keep in touch. Terry and Nancy Smeltzer
Thank you very much for all your hard work in helping Sherri and I find our home. We have been looking for some time, and the service that we got from you was top notch. I would highly recommend you to any of my family, friends and anybody looking for a realestate to call you for the professionalism you brought forth to make it a great experience. I thank you very much for all you have done for us. With Kind Regards Marten and Sherri, Jordan and Tyler Van Dyk. Cheers! Marten & Sherri Van Dyk
On our recent home sale, we had the pleasure of working with Maureen Mackenzie as our Real Estate Agent from Royal Lepage, Port Alberni-Pacific Rim in 2015. We would recommend Maureen without any hesitation to anyone wanting to buy or sell real estate in Port Alberni. Maureen is the consummate professional. She always has prompt follow up on anything, she is courteous, respectful, hardworking and efficient. Paul & Gail Dagg
We do not have enough exemplary adjectives to describe the quality of realtor you will get when you choose Maureen Mackenzie, but we will try. One adjective that sticks out when you think of Maureen is "enthusiastically"; it also happens to be her signature block and rightfully so. We did not know Maureen at all when we started to look at forever homes for our new young family. Although we were not first time home buyers, buying our forever home had the potential to become a stressful endeavor had we not had Maureen's guidance throughout. Her professionalism is second to none, each step along the way our emails and texts were responded to in a prompt and courteous manner. Her ethics in particular impressed us and we could tell she takes pride in her status as a professional in the community. She was always accommodating of whatever we needed, especially again, given our young family.
We were so impressed with Maureen with the purchase of our forever home we decided to continue with her as we listed our previous home for sale. Again, her professionalism shone through and our home was promptly listed for sale with high quality pictures and listing information. We were away traveling for much of the time our house was being shown and Maureen put our minds at ease taking care of all the little details, which was critical to keeping our stress level down. Our house sold and we couldn't have been happier with everything from start to finish. We knew Maureen obviously had numerous clients but she made us feel like we were number one. We would recommend Maureen without hesitation. Christina & Jim Proteau
My husband and I are truly impressed with the services Maureen Mackenzie provided to us as our listing agent. Maureen has a genuine and personable attitude making her easy to talk to and a pleasure to deal with. Throughout the process of selling our home we were grateful for her knowledge and willingness to listen to our needs. She displayed a fantastic work ethic by always being efficient and available for us. Even after the sale completed Maureen has been available to lend an ear and help us out however she can. We could not have been happier with our experience. Tyler & Michelle
Buying a new home can be very stressful, especially when you are new to the town and province. Maureen's professionalism, positive attitude and patience made it so much easier and less stressful. She was very knowledgeable and was always kind and understanding when answering our many questions. She always responded in a timely manner and was ready to hit the ground running as soon as we arrived in Port Alberni. Even after taking possession, Maureen made herself available to answer any other questions we had. We are thankful for all her hard work to get us into our home. When the time comes for another move, we will definitely be contacting Maureen. Damian & Maria
My wife & I would like to thank Maureen Mackenzie for her help and fantastic service in purchasing our new home in Port Alberni. Maureen constantly went the extra mile, and was extremely knowledgeable and professional throughout the entire process. We truly felt from the beginning that we could trust her and that she had our best interests at heart. We could not have been any more pleased and impressed, and we would recommend her services to anyone. Thanks again Maureen for a wonderful job! Hannah & Stefanie Burton
Thank you so very much Maureen for your wonderful service. Couldn't of asked for a better realtor. Love your dedication and passion. Your for sure a beautiful person inside and out. I will keep you in mind for future services, once again thank you from the bottom of my heart!,, Gretel Holden
What can we say that hasn't already been said about Maureen through previous testimonials: Honest, caring, professional, positive, knowledgeable, and the list goes on. Her trademark signature of "Enthusiastically Maureen" says it all. Our lake home was up for sale when several more were introduced to the market at the same time. No matter, Maureen had showing after showing until bang, a buyer was found. As we ended up being only one of two homes at the lake sold very late into the year, we were very excited and pleased. Dennis & Lois Andow
We thank you again Maureen, for listing and selling our home in such short order. Your professionalism, knowledge and determination is a great asset. We appreciate your friendliness and caring. We will continue to recommend you as a great agent. Rock Solid is a good motto for you. Keep up the great work, Maureen. Many thanks again..... Bill & Carol Pedersen
Moving and selling a house can be a very stressful experience, specially when it is a work related move. I chose to list my house with Coast Realty and was quickly contacted by Maureen to schedule an appointment. Right away, I knew it would be a pleasure working with Maureen, she was enthusiastic and approachable. During the few months where my house was for sale, Maureen remained readily available at any time of the day via text messages, which was a convenient way to communicate for me due to shift work. Maureen helped me with the layout of the furniture and curtains in the house to make it more appealing for showings, and even helped me personally when there was an incident with my freezer! Choosing Maureen as my realtor made the sale of my residence an enjoyable, worry-free experience! Julie
Thank you very much for taking my listing and providing me with great advice to get it ready to put on the market. In a low sellers’ market I am thrilled to have sold for a price that I considered reasonable. I appreciate the number of open houses you held to keep it fresh in the market. Your positive attitude all the way through the process gave me confidence it would sell. My house was shown numerous times and I feel that was a great compliment to your knowledge of the real estate market in Port Alberni. I appreciate you getting back to me right away after every showing. All in all you made it an easy process. Jean Baldock
Thanks so much for everything. With the sale of our family farm complete I look back with bitter sweet feelings of days gone past. A tough transition for my mom who has settled there for 57 years. You've walked us through bumps and fears and softened the emotional roller coaster that goes along with change. We are completely impressed at how you took care of us. Thanks for being so honest, caring, understanding and most of all trustworthy. Krause Family
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 family Jordy & 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 Wishes Judy & Jim
"As we are from out of town, Maureen has been instrumental in helping us find our perfect summer retreat. Her knowledge of the area and market really has made us confident in our final choice . We have settled in and still enjoy our time with Maureen, both as a freind and long term associate for when we are ready for our next move." Greg & Diana Overbury
Maple Ridge , British Columbia
We found our perfect home in a great location.
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. Tyler & Taryn Coates
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.
Thanks again Bob Cummings
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 their lives, it is not 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. Mike & Pam Newton
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. Christopher, Jayne & Harvey
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. Julietta Wild, Jerry, Gino, Romeo & Luigi Gaiga
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.
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%. Brian & Alison Hoy
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.
Maureen, you worked so diligently selling our house. ( And Travel Trailer :)) Thank you so much for doing such a professional job. Richard & Annette Stern
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. James Murphy

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
