I recently sold my vacation home on Saturna Island with the help of Michael Vautour from Dockside Realty. I couldn’t be happier with the service or the outcome. Michael brought a whole range of skills and attributes to the marketing of my property. He was always prompt and efficient in his communications and I quickly learned that I could depend on him. His attention to detail was confidence inspiring. He quickly understood the concept of the place and was able to convey that in the marketing materials. The listing was spectacular, using the services of a photographer who provided drone footage. I had never seen the place look so good! He also researched the market well and was able to suggest an asking price that attracted attention and led to a sale in a year when most properties were not selling. He showed the property extensively, and never cut corners to save himself trouble. The negotiations went very smoothly, and I felt I had advice that I could trust at each step in the process. I admire his integrity and feel that the whole transaction was made easier because of his tireless work and skills. I highly recommend his services to anyone, whether they are buying or selling on Saturna.

Jaime conducts herself in a very friendly, respectful and professional manner. She guided us through the whole purchasing process as only someone with great experience could. She listened well and gave us her honest opinion of the pros and cons of each property. We never felt pressured or steered into any decision. It was an absolute pleasure working with Jaime to purchase our recreational property on Pender Island.

" Jamie MacLean was our realtor that we chose from reviews we read on realtors on Pender Island. She was everything we were hoping to find in a Realtor. We had owned the land for a very long time and decided it was time to sell. Jamie was very personable and attentive to our needs. She was professional, efficient, reliable and knowledgeable to it all the aspects of presenting and selling the property. Within a week of listing she was able to sell our property for more than we were asking. We were very pleased! I would highly recommend her. Thank you very much, Jamie!

Michael always and consistently put our best interests first and often went beyond his usual tasks to assist us in liaising with the community services required to enhance and expedite the sale of our property. Michael certainly knows how to work with people, to make human connections, and to follow up with whatever action is required to move things forward. We are thankful.

I recently purchased a lovely home on Saturna Island with the help of Michael Vautour. Buying a home can be stressful but Michael made the whole process seamless and pleasant. I was as impressed with his competence and professionalism as I was with his genuine warmth and patience. He found me the home I wanted for the price I wanted to pay and I could not have asked for more. I have had realtors assist me in the sale or purchase of a home several times in the past and this was by far my best experience.

Buying a new home can be a daunting endeavour . Finding the right home in difficult market conditions can feel like an impossible task. So, having a real real estate agent that listens to your wants and needs and is with you every step of the way, was critical to my ultimate success in being able to call Pender Island my new home. When I decided I wanted to uproot myself from city life and move to Pender Island , Sandy took the time to really listen to me, to hear my many concerns, hopes and dreams and to support me. Among her many positive qualities, Sandy has the knowledge about the island and the real estate market that comes from many years of being part of the community . She is responsive to every question and issue that might arise along the way. If there is a technical issue that requires an expert she knows just the person to provide the answer. [ Things like water quality, wells, septic systems and so on can raise questions requiring such experts] She is committed to her clients and committed to finding that special home you are looking for, no matter how long it might take .She is patient and understanding in guiding her clients through the myriad of anxieties that might and do creep in during the process. She is honest and straightforward ; never pushy or driven to simply make a sale. She sincerely wants her clients to be happy . And, she has made me very happy in my new home . Robin Timms
