Investment Buyers.. Philippa is efficient.. Buyers 2017

My husband and I worked with Philippa because we were looking for an investment property to add to our portfolio. What we really appreciated about Phillipa's work was how efficient she was at finding the right listing and helping us determine if it was a good investment. We found a great property that met our needs and us still giving us a great return. Philippa’s experience and knowledge of the local market combined with her ability to negotiate was a total win for us and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for their next investment or home!

Letter to Owner of Royal LePage Comox Valley

Mr. Hart. (Manager & Owner Royal LePage Comox Valley) March 2017

We are writing you today to inform you of our excellent service we received from Philippa. We were referred to her by our realtor here on Pender Island, B.C. Charmaine Harris. With Philippa’s diligent work ethic in what is a fast moving “Seller’s Market” and often homes selling over the asking prices we have been able to purchase a home at 559 Alder St., Campbell River, BC.

This home is for our daughter Stacy Folk who is moving from Vancouver, BC to start a new job in Campbell River. Stacy, husband Jeff , and 2 1/2 year old son are first time homeowners and are “over the top” excited about their new wee house.

We found Philippa to be very professional in her work and also quick to respond to us at all times when we communicated homes we wished to view, questions we had, or advice we needed to know. She was intuitive to our/ Stacy’s wants and desires in a home. Very knowledgeable in her field, organized and adaptable. She was always willing to pitch in and help us check out the structure inspections that Stacy’s Dad was so knowledgeable in. Since we were all from out-of-town and living in different areas, she was always sure to communicate to all parties involved in making the decisions.

A final note I would like to add is that once we made the final offer on the home Philippa was so hard working that she even communicated with us up to 11:00pm that evening, sending documents etc. Now that is dedication at it’s best! We would highly recommend Philippa as a realtor to anyone looking to purchase a home in the Comox valley. Who knows maybe that may be us!

Thank you for employing Philippa as part of your excellent team!

Sincerely,


Tara & Jerry FolkStacy Folk

Selling & Buying... She is trustworthy... 2017

My family and I have had the opportunity to work with Philippa from the position of both a seller and a buyer of a home.  Her integrity and honesty helped us tremendously during these stressful and exciting times. We really value her expertise, professionalism, and work ethic. Philippa worked very hard to find out our specific needs and helped us to make many decisions along the way. She is a trustworthy, compassionate, knowledgeable, and very efficient real estate agent.  Her level of service does not end when “the deal is done” but rather continues as she still shares her advice and recommendations with us when we are seeking it.  Knowing that we have Philippa as a resource is very comforting. We would strongly recommend Philippa to anyone looking for a great real estate agent they can rely on.

We Have Our Dream Home... Buyers 2017

We can't thank you enough for your help getting us our dream home Philippa, you truly helped us pull off a miracle in this crazy market. Felt great to be in such capable hands when were we negotiating, clearly you've been in the game awhile! We feel like you went above and beyond in so many ways, many many thanks for all the support finding, landing and transitioning into our new home. You are most definitely our 'go-to' Realtor and are highly recommended to anyone we meet looking to buy or sell.

Teresa Waddell & Grant Callegari

Philippa is so friendly, positive, realistic and I truly feel that I can trust her.


Dale Monks.. Satisfied Seller

I would recommend Philippa for anyone that is buying or selling in the valley or Campbell River...neither one of us had a lot of experience in foreclosures and the notion of acquiring this particular property seemed a little daunting... but as things progressed we learned the process together and ended up with a result that I was VERY pleased with. We got the house & the car! Quite the experience!

Doug Poetker. Foreclosure Success 2016

Philippa is a wonderful Realtor! She has served us with selling two properties and on one purchase, and has been incredible! She is knowledgeable, professional, personable, and possesses a high degree of honesty and integrity. Her recommendations to us always displayed a great deal of knowledge of the local real estate market and our needs as her clients. We would not hesitate to recommend her as a realtor to anyone looking to buy OR sell a home!


Anna & Rod Keegan... Satisfied Military Buyers & Sellers

Philippa is professional, honest and caring. She provided great guidance and knowledge. She found the perfect house for us, and worked hard to make buying easy.


Andrew Eaton... happy local Buyer

In real estate, it's location, location, location. In realtors, it's fact-based details, details, details, and Philippa rules the roost! She gave us impeccable service, honest assessments of our circumstances and market realities, and a total "got your back" experience through multiple transactions. We would hire her again in a heartbeat.


Kathy Schmidt.. Pleased Happy Buyer and Seller

The purchase of our new house was very challenging, but Philippa pulled the deal through from her HOSPITAL BED! Dealing with Philippa was amazing from the first day she answered her phone from her hospital bed after a broken back and pelvis. She was a tremendous help, sending us listings, booking viewings and arranging for a colleague to show us around. We actually didn't meet face to face until the possession date of her house, but we couldn't have been happier with her attention to detail and uncanny ability to manage all facets of our purchase. She's always been available for us and almost a year later Philippa helped me compile enough market data to successfully negotiate a lower property assessment for tax purposes. The next time we're in the market to buy or sell a house we'll be calling Philippa and I've already recommended her to my friends and family.


Kelly & Jen Frey... Happy local Buyer

We appreciated Philippa's straightforward nature and efforts to find us the family home we were looking for. She listened to what we wanted in a home and didn't waste our time on showings that did not meet our requirements. We felt it was as important to her as it was important to us to find the right home...


Michelle & Vince Willard... First time home Buyers

I was extremely happy with Philippa’s guidance. It wasn't until well after our purchase that I realized that Philippa really knew what we needed. Often people will fall in love with house on first glance, but not truly take into account more than just the pretty curtains. Philippa had our backs the whole time and through her professionalism, did not allow us to zoom in on the one or two things we really liked. She kept us focussed on the overall picture. And today, we are almost a year into our purchase and we can honestly say that we are more than happy with our purchase. Everytime we drive away from home in the morning, we are glad that we bought the house we did. We appreciate it more now because the honeymoon phase has worn off and we are only now able to appreciate what we actually purchased.


Ian & Liz White.. Satisfied long term clients

Philippa was very outgoing, friendly, helpful and dedicated. I would certainly recommend her services to anyone requiring a real estate agent.


Mark Gibeault.. Military Buyer

Philippa stayed with the sale until all was to her, and my, satisfaction.......being sure the fireplace was in working order. I knew I could phone with problems even after sale was complete and did so. She stayed in contact until all was well.


Joan Southern.. Out of town Buyer

Ken and I felt your service was top notch. Our family was recently faced with the task of selling our parents home in an area in which we didn't live. Philippa came highly recommended and from our first meeting to the final sale, we were impressed with her style and professionalism. Philippa was sensitive to our needs, in constant communication with us and truly went above and beyond. She even planted flowers (or replanted thanks to the deer)! Philippa is knowledgeable, honest, to the point and driven in her field. There is no doubt in our mind that we made the right choice.


Ken and Stella... Out of town Sellers

Philippa went above and beyond our expectations during the whole selling process. She did an amazing job of marketing and selling our home. We were very happy with Philippa as our realtor and would highly recommend her!


Carol & Mike Coultas... Out of town Sellers

Our overall experience in selling our home was actually a lot better than we expected being my first time selling. We are very happy we went through this experience with Philippa. She always had a smile and was very positive. Philippa was very honest and informative and had the market analysis to compare in the pricing for our house. She gave us great tips on "staging" our house to impress all clients coming through. I really appreciated the details in feed back after each showing. The virtual tour she put together was amazing!!!!! I think she went above and beyond in selling our home.I would highly recommend Philippa to friends and family selling their home in the Comox Valley. Any one of her client would be very well taken care of and have a pleasant experience.


Jason and Trina Closson... Satisfied Sellers

Philippa is wonderful to work with. I can't express how grateful, I was that she was able to sell the house. She is simply awesome! Always professional caring, honest and forthcoming. Her market knowledge was outstanding as was her communication with feedback and staying in touch. We definitely will refer her to other people.


Gerard and Celeste Slawnwhite... Satisfied Military Sellers

Our experience with Philippa was Great. She is Knowledgeable, crazy organized and efficient. She had a great knowledge of the area, brought us lots of price comparisons and gave us realistic ideas. She always returned all calls promptly and gave feedback on all showings. We felt that Philippa was working for us and always had our best interest at heart. We felt flattered that Philippa didn't have too many things for us to fix up, but we took all her suggestions and completed our "to do list". The whole process went smoothly, not stressful. We will pass on her name to other people.


Randy and Kerri Gee... Satisfied Sellers and Family Buyers

Philippa was recommended to us by a military member in Comox who my husband was being posted in to replace. The recommendation was definitely worth it. Our buying experience with Philippa was pretty much stress free, enjoyable and successful. I first contacted Philippa once we found out our posting to Comox was secure. Her reply was instant and very informative. Just from my initial email, I felt Philippa knew exactly what we were looking for. Her honest replies about houses on my list enabled me to shorten the list to viewing only properties she felt (knew) that would be of interest to us and not wasting ours, her's or the seller's time by going to go see houses that would not 'be suitable' . Our house hunting trip was successful in all ways. We had a realtor who was there for us, knowledgeable of houses in the area, upfront and honest, and made sure that we were a priority that week. The buying process was smooth, Philippa was knowledgeable on home inspectors and lawyers in the area which made the buying experience in Comox an enjoyable one. I would definitely recommend Philippa to anyone coming to Comox Valley area.


Mike & Edi Maillet... Satisfied Miitary Buyers & Sellers

ONE HUGE BOUQUET for Philippa Berg. Without her absolute dedication to us, our move to Comox would not have gone so smoothly as it did. Being from out of town, she was our eyes and ears in helping us get our new home. All of what we were able to accomplish as a family to get out here would not have been possible without her efforts. She went out of her way to make sure we had the necessities in our home when we arrived along with flowers and champagne. Philippa you truly outdid yourself and we can't thank you enough!


Adam & Shauna Duncan.. Satisfied out of town Buyers

Immediately felt a connection with Philippa while speaking on the phone. I never felt pressured to hire her, even after we met, but I instantly felt trust between us. After speaking at length I thought Philippa was knowledgeable about the current marketand confident in her abilities to promote my property for a quick sale. Philippa was very realistic about the value of my home and it was reflected in the amount of showings that were booked. She was in contact with me regularly and always gave me immediate feedback after each showing.I trusted that she always had my best interests in mind when an offer came through.The fact that my property sold within 30 days is proof that Philippa knew how to effectively promote my home as well as advise me intelligently with every aspect of the transaction. I always tell people what a great job she did selling my house and highly recommend Philippa!


Susie Riedlinger... Satisfied local Seller

Philippa made the whole process of buying my first property run like clockwork! I didn't feel pressured at all, and she seemed to know exactly what I was looking for! Philippa knew when something looked too good to be true, and helped me meet the right people to get the paperwork across! Philippa was very professional throughout and I was very happy with everything! I couldn't have asked for more!
Thanks!


Alex Gignac... Military Buyer & Seller

Philippa was very professional & a good listener- very easy & willing to work with us even though we lived out of town at the time looking to buy. She had an excellent knowledge of the market & we were very satisfied with her negotiations. We never felt pressure and we will refer her to friends & family!


Trevor & Jen Olson... Satisfied Buyers

Philippa was unbelievable. We had two friends strongly recommend we use her and it turned out to be the best decision we ever made. She went above and beyond what she had to do. I have never heard anything but positive things about her and we will use her again in the future. We refer her to EVERYONE we know. She is amazing!
