Client Testimonials


My wife and I have had the pleasure of working with Janine for my beautiful home that I live in today. She understood our requirements very well and tailored the viewings wonderfully. I would recommend Janine to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. As a matter of fact, I introduced her to my friend who now owns his very first home. Thank you Janine for all of your hard and outstanding work!

Janine is amazing realtor! She really took the time to get to know my wants and needs and made the buying process stress free. She's responsive, dedicated, and works hard for her clients. I never felt pressured and in the end I found the exact condo I was looking for. I would definitely Janine to anyone looking to buy or sell!

- Caroline Smith

What can I say about Janine other than you get more than you ask for in professional guidance, exceptional negotiations on your behalf, and pure excellence in communication. To boot you will want to be friends with her after due to her caring and kind nature. I am extremely thankful that for my first realtor on the island I was lucky enough to have Janine and I hope to continue to work with her for my investments into the future. Thanks Janine!

- Luke Booth

My wife and I have used Janine Thomson twice in the last 5 years. The first time we worked with Janine was for the sale of our townhouse in 2016. We immediately felt comfortable with Janine, she gave us 100 percent and more. Having said that Janine managed to negotiate our sale price $ 15,000.00 above asking, and in less than 24 hrs. We always stayed in touch with Janine as we considered her a friend after getting to know her. Having said all that it was a no brainer that we would use her services once again to sell our home we presently reside in. Once again she did not disappoint, as we managed to sell during the Covid-19 pandemic in only a few weeks, also fetching top dollar. My wife and I would highly recommend Janine without hesitation.

- Stan & Patricia Stenger

Thanks so much Janine! My husband and I had the best experience and couldn't ask for a better realtor. Janine was on the ball, anything we asked for she went over and above. There was no stress, she had it all organized. Our home was presented beautifully in our listing due to her photographers and professional team. We sold quick than we expected and for above what we asked for.
Thank you! Thank you!

- J Bower

Janine was the realtor for the sale of my property in Langford. She was very hard working and professional. The property sold for more than the asking price in less than 2 days. Her hard work, honesty and integrity were crucial to the successful sale of this property. I would highly recommend Janine as a Realtor to anyone planning on buying or selling a property. We have remained in touch and it has been over 4 years since the sale of the house. 

- Tony Powell 

Janine goes above and beyond. I've purchased a home and now more recently sold a house with her. We got an amazing deal on the buy and got over asking on the sell. In both transactions she brought a knowledge base and energy that was invaluable. Honest, thorough, and always on the ball. 

Trevor Soare 

Janine is professional and excellent at her job, she guides you through the steps to selling, makes sure you get the best price for your house and is ready to answer questions or concerns. She is very informative and stays in contact throughout the sale. We found her to be honest and trustworthy and would highly recommend Janine. 

- Dorothy & Gary McNicol

Janine, with Pemberton Holmes in Victoria, did a super job. She got us a very quick sale on our property and kept us informed on how things were progressing. She is very dedicated.

- Sandy Gibson

I recently decided to put my family home of 40 years up for sale. Janine was there for me every step of the way going above and beyond anything I could have expected. Her suggestions and sound advice helped me in preparing my home for sale. Her daily updates and market research helped us form a strategy that worked. Her attention to detail included bringing in staging which transformed the home and showed its best potential. Her negotiating skills are unmatched and she was able to bring in multiple offers resulting in a sale price substantially above asking price. I look forward to working with Janine in the future, and would highly recommended her to anyone seeking a professional and personable realtor to work with.

- Tim Mayer

Janine helped my sister and I sell our parents condo in a very professionalism and sympathetic manner. That, we are very grateful for. She realized our special situation and took the reins and did a fantastic job staging and listing the condo. She kept us abreast on every stage. Because our aunt was the executor of our parents will, there was three of us involved so Janine really had her hands full and handled it gracefully and very professionally. All of us are very happy with her professional from the beginning at our first meeting, until the condo sold. We were kept informed by telephone text as well as email. We would recommend her,absolutely! The first viewers bought our condo. Proof positive!🤩 thanks Janine!

- Larry Fox


Janine was amazing!! She helped us every step of the way!! She is thoughtful and professional. Our place was listed and sold the same day. It has been a absolute pleasure to work with Janine.

- Laura Fox

We had a terrific experience working with Janine to purchase a strata in Victoria. She is very professional and organized, and provided excellent advice along the way. I also found her post-purchase support exceptional and helped ensure everything went smoothly. Her responsiveness was much appreciated, particularly accommodating the time zone difference, as we were looking for this property remotely during the pandemic.

- Geoff Besko

Janine was absolutely terrific for us! Because of her expertise, suggestions, staging and recommendations, we were able to get way over asking and she sold our house in 5 days! There were many excellent comments regarding her lovely staging. I definitely highly recommend Janine for your realty needs.

- Michele McDonald


Several months before moving to Victoria, we contacted Janine as we wanted to understand the residential real estate market better. We learned a lot from her, and when we finally arrived, we were on the starting blocks. It wasn't easy to find a house in such a market, but Janine came up with a great selection of properties that we liked. Once we had our mind set on a specific property, she supported us efficiently during the negotiation and throughout the process. Until the day the transaction was completed, Janine checked every single step so that everyone was on the same page and ready to sign on time, and the day we got the keys she spent some time with us and provided us with some advice on the property. It has been a pleasure working with her!
