Very Friendly and Helpful!
Richard Plowens was the best Realtor we’ve had the pleasure of dealing with. He was extremely professional but also very friendly and helpful in so many ways. He accommodated any and all of our needs way beyond our expectations. We would highly recommend Richard and the Susan Forrest Team to anyone contemplating buying or selling their home. Thanks Team!!!

A Remarkable Job!
The Susan Forest Team did a remarkable job in selling our home of 21 years in November. Richard took the lead in the dealings and handled the sale very professionally. Communications were excellent and our questions were dealt with efficiently. Richard and Susan helped us to set the asking price at a level that would attract attention but still leave room upside. The house sold in one day at a premium over the asking price to a party that obviously had done their homework. My wife and I are very grateful that we did not have to wait around for six months and have a multitude of showings. We will certainly recommend the Susan Forest Team to our friends either looking to sell or to buy in the Parksville area

Above and Beyond!
Jody of Team Susan Forest was instrumental in facilitating the purchase of the right house in the right place for us on the island, guiding us through negotiation and making it happen. She went above and beyond with her responsiveness and helpfulness for our personal needs in making our transition to the Island. Her friendly, professional manner made her a pleasure to work with.

We 100% recommend Team Susan Forrest!
This summer my family decided to move to Vancouver Island. We reached out to the team at Susan Forrest for help in finding the perfect home. We were looking for a unique property that could provide a cottage for my mom and a second home for my husband and I. It was a challenging time to be house hunting, as demand far outstripped supply, but our agent was amazing. Our agent was Jody Moore. She impressed us immediately with her breadth of knowledge, professionalism and friendly manner. She worked hard to help us find the perfect home, and then because we were a back up offer, she was amazing in helping guide us along the process of building a winning offer and communicating with the seller's agent. If anyone we know is going to buy or sell a home in the mid-island, we would 100% recommend the Susan Forrest team. I give them an A+ for responsiveness, intelligence, experience, knowledge, attentiveness, friendliness and tenacity!! Thank you again for helping us secure the perfect home.

Our Highest Recommendation!
Team Susan Forest Royal LePage were a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend them as your realtor. As buyers new to the area, we were competing in a heated market with multiple offers and often over asking. Susan worked with us to completely understand our priorities and what we were looking for in our new home. She then provided several very good options, but one property fit our requirements perfectly. With her understanding of the competitive market and property, she developed a strategy, executed, and we were successful with the purchase. Susan and Richard were a delight to work with and their expertise, professionalism and customer service were second to none. We offer our highest recommendation.

You're the Best!
Personable, Professional, and Exceptional While preparing our property for sale, we were tremendously grateful for Susan's positivity, encouragement, and support. Her attention to detail, use of resources (e.g., home staging, photographers, videography) coupled with her reassuring “can do” attitude wisely guided us through the selling process. Susan’s sage and invaluable advice certainly helped us make informed decisions during the hottest real estate market on record! Team Susan Forrest consistently demonstrated excellent organizational and communication skills, especially during showings and offers. Treena Armitage joined Susan to assist in the search for our new home. Treena’s boundless optimism, humour, and patience beautifully complimented Susan’s years of experience, especially while our stress levels rose and listing inventory declined. As they predicted, the perfect new home suddenly appeared for sale and, with the help of Team Susan Forrest, we're happily settling into the next chapter of our lives. Thank you, Susan and Team Forrest; you’re the best!

Nothing You Could Have Done Better!
We were so impressed with you as our Realtor and would recommend you and your Team to anyone and everyone. Thank you for showing us umpteen places and putting up with us, as we are sure we likely drove you to distraction sometimes! You are very professional, as is your Team. You exceeded our expectations for the reasons mentioned. There’s nothing you could have done better. We hope to see you again one day soon.

A Pure Delight!
We sold our house in 4 days at a record price in our community! This is our 5th home we’ve sold since 1997. The team put together the most comprehensive marketing plan the we have had to date. It was done so well that the buyer made and offer after a Virtual tour of the property with their realtor. Working with Susan and her team was a pure delight! She is just open and down to earth and truly works toward a common plan to sell your home. There is no pressure to sell quick and low, its up to you as it’s your investment but she will guide you through potential pitfalls. Her experience shines through and it truly is “Real Estate built on relationships”.

A Great Choice!
My choice of Team Susan Forest to be my realtor for the sale of my Nanaimo condo turned out to be a great choice! Richard Plowens and Susan Forest provided a market assessment of what they could achieve that turned out to be very realistic and met my expectations. Their professional staging expert, and teams of specialized camera crews, developed an outstanding virtual tour of the condo and the adjacent waterfront marinas and island views . Further, the unlicensed assistants that interacted with me and the real estate agents were very attentive and efficient in setting appointments and keeping the sales process on track. Team Susan Forest brought me an offer for my condo, that was accepted 48 hours post listing. My sale objectives were fully realized. I am providing your name to my friends who will need a professional team in buying and selling their real estate. Thank you Team Susan Forest!

Excellent to Work With!
Susan Forrest and her Team are excellent to work with. They are knowledgeable, courteous, very organized, communicative, and always up-to-date on the complexities of the real estate market. You readily learn that they have your best interests at heart. In a rather volatile market with rapidly rising prices, bidding wars, and limited supply, I never once doubted Susan’s ability to negotiate on my behalf. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her to my family and/or friends; in fact, I already have!

Our Expectations were Met and Exceeded!
We bought a house in French Creek and our realtor was Richard Plowens from Team Susan Forrest . Team Susan Forrest was recommended to us by a top Ontario realtor, so we had great expectations that were met and exceeded. We were very happy with all aspects of the process, from the extremely useful web site they use to Richard’s remarkable charm, sense of humour, customer service, infinite patience and total trustworthiness. It was the time of low inventory in the housing markets and multiple offers , so Richard’s qualities made the process much easier. Richard works closely with Susan, so we always felt we have at least two realtors working for us, advising. That’s a useful thing in a house market where you have to make decisions at very high speed. We would definitely choose the same realtors again, whether it’s a hot or calm housing market, and we would recommend them to friends and family.

Professional, Organized and Nice to Deal With!
Richard and Susan were both very professional, organized and nice to deal with. In particular, we appreciated the home stager who was very helpful to better prepare the house to sell and the photographer and videographer were quick & efficient and produced lovely results. We were pleased with both the buying & selling aspects and the results were very good in both transactions. We would use Richard & Susan again and recommend them to anyone.

A Dream to Work With!
Richard, Susan and their team at Susan Forest Realty were a dream to work with. They were professional, responsive, and willing to go above and beyond our expectations. They were also able to list and sell our home within a week for above our asking price. Very happy we decided to go with them.

We would tell a friend or relative if you are needing a realtor who is competent and dots all the I"s crosses all the T"s then pick the Susan Forrest Team. Indeed we have recommended our friends the Wapels to use the Team and feedback from them was positive as well. The whole process was smooth without anyone dropping the ball which exceeds our expectations as we all know often stuff happens. The area that we appreciated the most was how we were kept in the loop as to what was happening and when which is very important. Thanks again for your professional work on our sale.

Above and Beyond My Expectations!
Good morning Susan and team. I would absolutely tell people about you and Jody who I feel went above and beyond my expectations. With such a short time to find something and buy my stress level was a little high to say the least. Meeting Jody quickly relieved my anxiety and my husband and I knew she was going to take care of us and she delivered. I have already spread the good news of your team and will continue to do so

Can't Say Enough Good Things!
We just can’t say enough good things about the Susan Forrest Team. Susan and her team made the sale of our house as seamless as possible. We required a quick sale and they came through for us. They had a top notch photographer, videographer and drone operator to capture our home beautifully. Treena did an excellent job of showing our home to prospective buyers. They guided us in all aspects of the sale eliminating a lot of stress on our part. The communication was flawless. Susan and her whole team were very professional but also very personable. Thank you Team Susan Forrest!

Treated Us Like Gold!
Susan treated us like gold. Offered us useful insights into the market and created a strategy that resulted in a quick sale. Sellers remorse is not part of our experience with her. There are lots of ways that selling a house can go sideways. Having Susan and her team working for you is not one of them.

Amazing, Knowledgeable, and Super Friendly!
We spent time with Jody from Team Forrest. She was amazing, very knowledgeable, accommodating and super friendly. She took the time to get to know us a bit and was always available for questions or last minute showings of properties we were curious about. I would absolutely recommend Jody from Team Susan Forrest.

Professionalism, Dedication and Expertise!
When the time came for me to sell a property I interviewed a total of four realtors. I had noticed signs for Team Susan Forrest around the island, so I requested an appointment with Susan. Susan is very professional while being very personable. She submitted a very thorough prospectus. In fact the most complete prospectus of any of the realtors I interviewed. It happened that I did not require Susan's services for over a year. Susan was on a well deserved break when I was in the position to now sell, so Richard Plowens from TeamSusanForrest became my agent. I found Richard to be just as professional as Susan and just as personable. They made my experience enjoyable and efficient. I was very happy with their above and beyond service. I would HIGHLY recommend Richard and Susan. I am confident everyone at their office is as professional as they are. Thank you Richard and Susan for your professionalism, dedication and expertise as well as your personal touches!

Exceeded My Expectations!
As I started my research for the island, Susan Forest kept popping up in the places I was looking for in my price range, so I contacted her to be my agent of choice. I am so glad I did. On my journey to find my home, I felt informed and updated as to the latest the market had to offer. It was certainly a wise choice and Jody was my realtor. I had never bought a house "on line" before, but with Jody's expertise and the help of my good friend, Carol, I felt very comfortable with the process, and almost felt that I was there with them. Jody was very thorough in showing me the home via Zoom and went above & beyond with the inspection and answering my myriad of questions. I would highly recommend Jody and the Susan Forrest team without any hesitation. It was certainly a job very professionally done and exceeded my expectations. Thank you!

A Worry Free Experience!
From the first time Susan Forrest from Royal LePage in Parksville, BC, walked though my house-in-flux, right through to the day the new owner received the keys, Susan and Team Forrest were wonderful to work with. I could not have found a better person and team to handle this sale. They are extremely professional, knowledgeable, compassionate and returned emails and phone calls quickly. Susan and the Team made the sale of the house a worry free experience! A very sincere and grateful Thank You to Susan and the Team.
