A Brilliant Experience!
Susan, Peter, Richard, and the entire team were fantastic. From start to finish, they were professional but made the process simple and easy. The house sold quickly, very quickly considering the market, and we for our asking price. It was a brilliant experience. I would recommend them highly and would go back to them in a heartbeat and without reservation. Thank you again for all you did for me and my mum.

A Wonderful Job!
We worked with Peter Coles to help us find and purchase a dream property in the Eaglecrest area of Qualicum Beach. He possesses a ton of knowledge about the area and maintains a deep list of local contacts that aided with inspections and property advice. We were navigating the deal from Vancouver, which added an extra challenge, but we felt very supported throughout the whole process. He was always available and made time for us when we needed to talk things through. Moreover, he did a wonderful job coordinating with the selling agent. And, importantly, we secured a great deal on a beautiful property. Thank you!

As Honest as they Come!
A long-time client of mine recommended Susan Forrest when I was looking for a realtor early last year. As a person who is somewhat wary of realtors, it was important to me to find someone with a lot of integrity. I had a great conversation with Susan, who then connected me with Sherry Bernes. We went on a long journey together navigating the competitive and ever changing real estate market on the Island, and Sherry was an absolute rock. Always putting the needs of her client ahead of her own bottom line, Sherry is as honest as they come. Her background in construction was a big plus when viewing houses. With every place we would look at, she would point out the positives as well as the flaws/interesting building choices. I'm hoping to not have to move again anytime soon, but if I do I know who I'll be calling. Thanks for everything!

We Highly Recommend this Team!
In the space of 5 years, Richard, Susan and the team helped us buy and then sell the same house under conditions that were not quite ideal. We found them open, honest and realistic about the whole process. Our concerns were dealt with willingly and quickly, leading to the best result in both our transactions. We will always highly recommend this team for property deals in the central island.

Professional, Kind, and Sympathetic.
When it came time to sell my parents home, because it was time for them to downsize to a smaller place, I contacted Team Susan Forrest. Richard Plowens met with my parents, and me, and we worked out the details of the sale. The first thing I noticed about Richard is that he was very patient with my elderly parents and listened to to their point of view regarding the sale of their home. He was professional, kind, and sympathetic to their needs regarding next steps for their future plans. The professionalism that Richard displayed was also evident in all of the Team Susan Forrest staff. It didn't matter who I contacted at the office, they treated me with respect and made me feel that the sale of my parents home was as important to them as it was to me. They really do work together as a "Team". I would encourage anyone seeking to sell or purchase a home to contact Team Susan Forrest and give them an opportunity to assist you. Richard has helped me sell a home, buy a home and I will be contacting him, and Team Susan Forrest again for any future home sales or purchases. Again, thank you Richard and Team Susan Forrest for making a difficult job easy.

A Delight to do Business With!
So happy with Sherry Bernes from the Susan Forrest Team! Sherry was a delight to do business with. Not only is she refreshingly integral, with a professionalism that is second to none. Sherry’s pleasant personality coupled with her no-pressure, sensible guidance, was extremely appreciated. Sherry’s timely and efficient responses left me feeling valued and respected. Sherry’s many years in the industry was a major resource to me, confidently navigating me through the current market with a constructive “what can I do for you” sincere approach. I found the Susan Forrest Team through a typical Google search. I am so happy it led me to such an amazing lady. Sherry’s genuine confidants and expertise was great! I’m certain if I find myself back in the real estate market again, my first step will be to reach-out to Sherry Bernes!

We Highly Recommend their Services!
I would highly recommend both Susan Forrest and Richard Plowens of the Forrest Team to engage in any real estate dealings you may have. In our case, we had multiple real estate transactions happening all at the same time. A conflict of interest occurred in relation to two properties. This issue was revealed to us and dealt with in a timely and ethical fashion with very satisfactory results. If we ever require a realtor in the future Susan Forrest/ Richard Plowens and Team Forrest will definitely be our go to without hesitation. We highly recommend their services.

Above and Beyond!
All I can say is Jody Moore was amazing. Her attention to detail when walking through a home was fantastic and so thorough! She was always asking how to help us find the right home and she delivered. We are so happy after a many year search to finally have roots again with our new home. Jody went above and beyond even after the sale with finding us cleaners and checking in. We would recommend Jody if you are looking for a realtor. Thank you Jody for all your care & support that you continue to give us.

Very Pleased with the Results!
Lynn & I would like to express our appreciation to Sherry Bernes and the Susan Forrest Team for assisting with selling our Qualicum Beach home. Sherry provided us with a personalized comprehensive real estate document package that outlined the comparable listings, pending and sold listing, along with previous historical sales data on our house. Sherry was very knowledgeable, friendly, approachable, & detail oriented and it was a pleasure working with her during a stressful time, she put us at ease. I would be remiss if I didn’t applaud the Susan Forrest Team behind the scenes performing the technical & scheduling details. Job well done Team! I will and have recommended Sherry & the entire Susan Forrest Team to friends & family for their real estate needs. We’re very pleased with the results, Thank you all, again.

Professional and Helpful!
After 15+years in a condo in Parksville, we wanted to get back to owning our own stand-alone home. The Team Susan Forrest name is well known in the mid-Vancouver Island area, so we made contact and Richard became our agent. With Richards’ help, we found a distinctive residence, close to our then current residence. This allowed us to undertake home ownership and remain in the service area for our doctors and health care professionals. Richard handled the discussions with other realtors very well, and with his guidance we were able to get an agreement and move on toward a close. The word 'Team' is appropriate for the Susan Forrest group. There was always someone to get answers from and explain the significance and value of things. Richard and the team were professional and helpful at all times, and we would engage Richard and The Susan Forrest team again in the future as our circumstances evolve.

Wonderful Caring People!
When we decided to sell our home that we have lived in for over 30 years, Susan Forrests name immediately popped into my head. I went to school with both Susan and Richard, Ive always had very fond memories of them both. It was a little, actually a lot, nerve racking for me as I had little to no experience in selling. As soon as I saw Susan she put me at ease. Shes an amazing wonderful warm person, so down to earth, that I immediately felt that I definitely have the right person helping us!!! As far as the Team, absolutely wonderful people so nice to know there are still some wonderful caring people out there. I would HIGHLY recommend Team Susan Forrest!!

We Cannot be more Grateful!
Team Susan Forrest exceeded our expectations to the moon and beyond! What a crazy, stressful time selling and buying a home can be. Incredibly, Susan was able to duplicate an offer on our home when our first offer collapsed within 12 hours. We were then able to still buy the home of our dreams due to her skilled action and cannot be more grateful. Her consistent, calm, caring manner and expertise, supported us through all the trials and tribulations of buying and selling. Her team of capable,kind,realtors and staff made the whole process seamless. We highly recommend Team Susan Forrest.

Representing my Best Interests!
Jody Moore was such a pleasure in helping and working with me to find a home. She has easy availability, she is detailed, and I felt she was definitely representing my best interests in all aspects. I would very much recommend. Thank you Jody!

Professional, Laid Back, and Knowledgeable!
Having been a Realtor for 25 years, I knew what kind of Realtor I would like to work with. We met Richard Plowens at an open house. He was professional, laid back, and knowledgeable. We met with him later to discuss what we were looking for in a home, and he made suggestions of areas that may fit the bill. We looked at properties with him, and found the one we wanted. In his absence, his associate Leah, eagerly provided us with market comparables, and showed us alternate properties so we would have an idea of value. She then submitted our offer to purchase, and was prompt in providing us with the required documents. Upon his return, Richard followed up with us, and has since recommended several service providers in the area. I would use Richard and Leah again, and would recommend them to anyone looking to buy, or sell a home!
