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!

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!

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 
 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.

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! 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!
- Jean-Christophe & Jana Lermusiaux

In December I contacted Janine and a few other realtors to perform a market valuation of my home. From the moment of contact Janine was diligent and professional. Unlike the other realtors her attention to detail in this evaluation was next level. Since then she has followed up in a patient and not overly pushy manner. My ex and I have decided it's best not to sell the house but I feel that the effort put in by Janine is outstanding. I highly recommend that anyone looking for representation consider Janine as her diligence and hard work is obvious.
- Phil Bodley Scott

Janine worked diligently to find our new home and it was a pleasure to work with her. She was very responsive, and a calming presence especially needed in today’s market. She was able to narrow down searches to our specifications and efficiently arrange viewing promptly and at our convenience. We moved into our new home several weeks ago and have only positive things to say in her professionalism and knowledge.
- Charly Buyck

If you are looking for a Realtor that has their pulse on the market of today, I absolutely recommend Janine Thomson.|I have been out of the housing 
market for 10 plus years and today's market is drastically different from what I remember.
Janine's experience, knowledge and direction has been invaluable to me. It took a few attempts to find and win an offer on my dream home, 
but Janine was very patient and guided me to success.
I am forever grateful!
- Denise Maclean

Janine recently helped me sell my condo and I was very pleased with her dedication and expertise. She provided excellent feedback on the market and was brilliant on how to market my condo for the maximum benefit. Reaching her was never a problem and I felt like she was there for me 100%. The property sold within the first couple of days over the asking price and I couldn’t be more pleased. I would definitely recommend Janine to anyone who is looking to buy or sell property….
- Leslie C

Recently I had the absolute pleasure of working with Janine as she helped me find a condo to purchase in this crazy hot, fast paced real estate market. Janine was amazing, always professional and a wealth of information not only with the real estate market but also with the area because she grew up here. I found her to be very reliable, easy to contact whenever I had questions and she always kept me updated as the market was constantly changing. Janine always made me feel like I was her top priority. I would highly recommend her for all your real estate needs. 5 star professional for sure! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
- Louise Heatherington

Janine was a great and attentive realtor! She always took the extra time with us as first time home buyers and made sure we had all the tools we needed. We always felt cared for and like a priority, which is exactly how you want to feel when searching for a place to make a home! Janine’s knowledge of Langford was first rate!
- Rhys Aled Owen

Working with Janine was a no brainer! She is attentive, trustworthy, knowledgeable and will work hard to get you into your perfect home. Janine listened to our needs and never made us feel rushed or pressured. As a local, Janine knew all the ins and outs of Victoria and The Westshore. As a first time homebuyer, Janine took the time to make sure that I understood the process and what was needed from me to make a successful and safe purchase.
-Shintana M

Janine was our selling agent for our condominium. She was experienced, very professional and knowledgeable. Although this was not a straightforward sale, Janine helped us navigate through any complications by providing sound and honest advice, while always looking out for our best interests. She was friendly, organized, hard-working, and quick to respond when we reached out. She advised us around appropriate renovation needs and went above and beyond to beautifully stage our condo which most definitely promoted buyer’s interest, and a quick sale. She kept everything on track, worked well with the other professionals in order to maintain a seamless transaction, and overall made the whole experience as positive as possible!

We were very happy with the final sale and would highly recommend Janine!
- Kim Munro

I can’t thank Janine enough for her hard work, dedication and professionalism. We travelled from Ontario looking for a home in Victoria. Janine sent us many listings in advance and then spent 3 full days with us showing us properties until we found our dream. Janine then worked tirelessly to pull everything together for us. Unfortunately we couldn’t make the move and then had to sell our Victoria purchase quickly and Janine again, worked incredibly hard to make the sale for us. You couldn’t have a better realtor than Janine. Thank you so much Janine for caring like you did. We truly appreciate all you did for us.
- Gail Stewart

Janine truly cares about her clients. She works very hard to provide a top tier level of service!
- Caron Price
