Great experience, tons of fun, made life easy.
I have had the pleasure of working with Rod as my Realtor for the past few months. I have always found him to be professional and courteous in every way sensitive to both the market and my real estate needs. Rod works hard to find us properties that fit our criteria and is always able to negotiate in our best interest!
Rod, just a brief note of thanks for the time and effort you have made in our home purchasing efforts. Use any or all of the following as you wish. Finding the right direction in your journey is much easier with an experienced guide providing advice. My wife and I have been financially preparing for a good number of years with the hopes of purchasing a home. Not long ago we realized it was now time to become a home owner but we were very short on experience and understanding in the wide range of real-estate. We asked our mortgage broker and only one name came forward without reservation – Rod Friesen. Right from our first phone call, we were pleased to have Rod as our guide. He added the essential insight to our decision making but did not assume control. Rod also provided us with the time to come to conclusions on our own. We are grateful to have had such a wise and gentle guide in this home buying journey.
Karina and I were first time home buyers. We had initially been working with a few other real estate teams and their ‘buyer’s agents’. We never felt that they were trying to help us buy a home and they eventually stopped contacting us. When we met Rod, it was a breath of fresh air. He was patient with us and took the time to explain to us what was going to be required to purchase a home. Our needs were very specific, and Rod scoured the market for just the right place. He had previewed so many homes in the area that he knew exactly what we were looking for and where to find it (twice). We wrote an offer on what was a perfect condo for us, but when we got the inspection report back it was not to our satisfaction. Within 1 day Rod found us a home with a 2 bedroom legal suite that was in our budget. We will use Rod again, to help us buy and sell, and probably in the near future. We will also refer people we know looking for real estate. Thanks again for all your hard work.
We were moving our medical practices from Alberta to British Columbia. Finding the right home was a major priority. Being from out of province, we wanted to be sure we were in the right hands. Fortunately, we called Rod Friesen and we knew right away that we had made the right choice. We were looking for our dream home with an amazing view. We made trips to B.C. to view homes and Rod always had plenty for us to look at. He set up the viewing schedules, got us through the homes, and in the end he located the perfect home for us with an unbeatable view. The home was under construction and Rod setup a website for us to view updated pictures that he took for us, he kept us up to date with how the home was progressing. His market knowledge was amazing and I will not hesitate to refer friends and family to Rod Friesen in the future. Thanks for all your hard work!
