Rick Gibson Testimonials

An overview of Rick Gibson's client experiences with buying or selling their home.

All aspects of the sale for which Rick Gibson was responsible were carried out efficiently and in a professional manner. He worked hard to sell my property and succeeded in difficult market conditions; He kept me informed of progress throughout the process and advised me in strategic decisions to facilitate sale of the unit. His extensive knowledge of the Mount Washington property organization and how things are done within that legal framework was extremely valuable on many occasions throughout my ownership of my home on the mountain, as he willingly shared his knowledge and advice. I recommend him to any buyer or seller of property, particularly on Mount Washington.

We purchased our amazing place at Mount Washington with the very capable help of Rick, who has since become a neighbour and friend. He was extremely knowledgeable about the local market, a courteous tour guide, entirely low pressure and yet very efficient and helpful with the final transaction. There is simply no other agent around who can match Rick's expertise at Mount Washington!

- Garry and Lynette from Victoria

He was great to deal with in ALL ways. I look forward to meeting him 1 day. We did everything by phone email and text. It was a great experience !

- Judy & Garnett from Victoria

I rang Rick in April and asked him to put my condo on the market and he agreed like a shot. We hadn't met since I bought the condo in 2004 but it was great that he remembered me and I immediately felt he was there for me, not just for a possible sale. He advised me when to put the property on the market, what price, and to save me a long journey, organized cleaners to go in and make the place spotless and ready for viewing. He put up patiently with my vagaries (I am elderly!) and basically took all the worry of selling away, and best of all, sold the condo in a matter of weeks. What else can I say but "thankyou Rick".

- Betty from Duncan

Rick was there for us every step of the way. Our transaction was not an easy one and was time sensitive. Rick updated us and coached us on each step throughout the process. Rick is very professional and diligent in providing very good communication throughout the entire process.

- Doug and Kim from Cumberland

Looking back at the experience of buying my first home, from the comfort of my new, beautiful living room, view of the river at my doorstep, wood burning stove at my feet, I think about how I almost said no to this. In fact, I did say no....and Rick, what did he say?.....”I think you're making a mistake” and that was all he said. “Damn you” was what I was thinking. Now, looking back at it all, I truly don't believe Rick would have said it if he hadn't actually believed it. His belief turned out to be absolutely right. Despite my fears and uncertainty, I was not led astray. Rick helped me see the potential sitting before me and what I could create. A lot of emotions arise when you buy a house, Rick was patient and thorough at answering my list of questions, posing the right ones back and helping to get me on the path to creating what I was looking for.

- Jennifer Naples

Courteous, professional and very easy to talk to. All communication was clear and informative. Regular updates were also appreciated.

- Tarj from Victoria

Rick once said to me (I am quoting verbatim here) "I do my best to look after my clients no matter what" I have to say, without a word of exaggeration, Rick is entirely true to his word. He has worked above and beyond what I would have expected from any real estate agent and I would not hesitate to hire him again in the future.

- K from Courtenay

I was introduced to Rick after he helped my parents find a home. He spent a lot of time with me finding out exactly what I wanted, and giving me advice. He helped me find the property that was right for me, and helped me negotiate. Rick wasn't afraid to play hardball to help me get the best deal.
