Client Feedback

Here are some testimonials clients have provided and comments made on our customer survey

We really appreciated the service that Gerry provided us regarding our most recent home purchase. Gerry was always happy to show us any properties that we were interested in and always came prepared with numbers and extra information about each property. Whenever we had questions along the way, he was always available. When we found the property that we wanted and made an offer, Gerry expertly guided us through the closing process and made the entire experience stress-free and easy. We will continue to use Gerry's services for future purchases and would not hesitate to recommend him to others.  John and Suzanne Humphries.

Gerry has to be hands down the best realtor I've ever worked with.  He is very knowledgeable and goes the extra mile to make sure nothing was missed.  Very professional and made sure I was well informed every step of the way and made the whole process of buying a home effortless.  Kerrie.

When I met Gerry I'm not sure a client could have given him more restrictions on what I wanted in my first home buy. During the process I became very discouraged and realized what I was looking for and wanted was very difficult and most likely unrealistic. Even though I became discouraged Gerry never did. I got exactly what I wanted in the end. Gerry was relentless for me and I'm sure will be for you to. Terry Kenny.

I want to thank you personally for going the extra mile for my father and I know you think that it is part of your job, but I think you did more than the average Realtor would have done.  Jean Foy.



Gerry Chwelos was amazing, I found him while searching the internet for properties for my daughter. We corresponded for over 6 mos, with him sending me up-dates on all properties in her price range, even repossessed places. Our daughter's budget was very tight, yet nothing was too big or small of a problem. He drove from Courtenay to Port Alberni just to show her some properties. Finally she settled on a piece of land and is now in the process of building. Everything with the transaction went smoothly until the end, which turned out to be a bit of a hiccup, yet Gerry came to our rescue and saved the day. Thank you again Gerry! I would definitely recommend Gerry, he is a super person and a great Realtor.  Lynne Munroe.


GERRY, YOU'RE THE BEST! How could we sell our home without you? You are the ultimate real estate professional who never gives up, even in the most challenging markets. You are there for us day and night. You looked after our property as if it were your own. Gerry, you’re the best! Lorraine and Neville Kirchmann.

My wife and I moved to the Comox Valley from Vancouver about 1.5 years ago.  We were referred to Gerry through our realtor on the mainland.  He was amazing.  He was very patient as we looked at several different homes over the course of a few months.  Gerry's analytical approach provided us with a very clear indication if a house we were looking at was priced correctly.  We always felt like he had our best interests at heart.  We will definitely be calling Gerry again for any of our real estate needs.  Brad MacDonald.

Gerry has a way of making the whole transaction experience pleasant and positive. His incredible knowledge and attention to detail instils confidence in him as a highest-rated Real Estate professional.  Hank Ewert.

Gerry Chwelos is the most knowledgeable and competent realtor I have ever dealt with. He maintains a close eye on the real estate markets both in the Comox Valley and the Island. His advise on staging and decluttering led to my home selling for full asking price and $20,000 more than an identical unit in the same complex. Gerry made the entire process comfortable, quick and stress free. I recommend Gerry to anyone selling or purchasing in the Comox Valley.  Debora Williams.

An Excellent Adventure, Gerry. We are sincerely grateful for your tireless efforts in helping us buy our family home, long distance. All the groundwork you did before we even arrived in Courtenay afforded us an understanding of the North Island real estate market as well as the communities themselves and made our two weeks of house hunting focused and, ultimately, successful. We have already recommended your services to friends who are contemplating a move to the Island. Many thanks, Gerry.  Krys and Bill McDonald.

Gerry is a lovely gentleman the likes of which you rarely meet. He was a pleasure to work with and I felt entirely comfortable with his level of competence.  Liz.

Gerry, I wish to say a big thank you for your patience, expert knowledge and diligence in finding me a new home. Hilary Rice.



Gerry provided an extremely high level of service.  His hard work and insights during the entire process of purchasing and building our house in Cumberland were invaluable, doing research and advising us on what questions needed asking.  It was an involved and evolving process of viewing properties in the Comox Valley before deciding on the house and lot.  During construction, he communicated frequently with the builder's realtors, keeping track of adjustments and documenting changes.  It was a long road and I have a great respect for his integrity and work ethic.  We cannot thank you enough, Gerry.  Kindest regards, Gustaf and Jana.


Gerry is a highly efficient realtor who knows what he is doing.  He is helpful and very easy to get a hold of.  Once he understands your needs he is on top of getting your home sold and willing to put in the time to find your new home.  Gerry understands the process and will keep you informed.  Wendy

Gerry Chwelos was recommended by a friend. We called him as we had found some properties we were interested in seeing. He immediately made arrangements for us to view the properties. He went out of his way to accommodate our time frame and when I put an offer on the condo he was very helpful as I live in Vancouver and could not be in Comox.  Nan.

Three years ago when i arrived on the Island I stopped in to see what prices for houses, etc. were.  Gerry Chwelos took me around Courtenay and showed me places. I wasn't ready till now to buy but because Gerry had always emailed me listings I went back to him as we get along great. He made it an enjoyable experience. Thanks so much. Nancy.

My wife and I had a great experience working with Gerry from October 2017 to March 2nd 2018.  We found him to be thorough, quick to respond to questions, patient (not in a rush for us to make a purchase decision) and very knowledgeable.  I definitely recommend him for anyone looking to purchase a home in the Comox Valley.  Phil Nelson.

     About Gerry                                         Service and Integrity Above All

Information and Interpretation
Selling or buying real estate is a major financial endeavour with many factors to consider. While you have a wealth of information available to you on the internet, interpreting that information is another matter.

This is where I come in. Not only do I research and provide you the information you need, I take it to the next level and analyze and interpret that  information for you. I will tell you what I think, what we do is up to you.


As a client, your Realtor works for you, and this is a principle I hold dear.  I see my job as providing you with information, interpretation, services and guidance, not to push you on a course of action.

Unparalleled Service
I have a simple code, I don't sell, I service. I assume my clients are perfectly able to make their own decision once they have the information they need. I spend my time providing information, guiding people through the process, and making sure all the bases are covered, not in high pressure sales.

Over the years I have received very complementary feedback from clients. See Client Feedback.

Integrity
Integrity, simply defined, is being honest and fair. This is further enhanced by one of a Realtor's prime duties, which is not to put anyone's interest above their clients, including their own.  This a duty I take very seriously. My personal outlook after over 30 years in business, is that whenever I experience high pressure sales I start to question the integrity of the person selling me.  Are they looking after my best interest or theirs?
