What clients are saying...

Michael has been my Realtor of choice for several years now! I first met him when my first home was on the market with another agent at the time he showed it. He had presented himself with such a professional manner that I had remembered him for some time. His buyers at the time purchased another home from him. Our home had eventually expired and did not sell with our agent, we then called Michael. The market was tough at the time and he mapped out a marketing plan that looked like it would be very efficient. We listed our home with him and as was discussed and expected it took several months to sell. We had many, many showings and through the entire process he was patient and very informative keeping us updated with all the showings as well as the market conditions. The home was sold several months later and with the process being so stressful we still felt like he was someone who truly gave us a high level of service and communication. We have since purchased another home with him and since sold it as well. He is our family Realtor for life.

Thank you,

Deana provided excellent service and professionalism for the entire process, from the beautiful pictures and marketing along with Deana’s knowledge, expertise and hard work in selling my home.  With her understanding and compassion she made an emotional time easier to get through.  I highly recommend Deana for all your real estate needs.

Sydney was essential in finding me my perfect home. She is diligent, openly communicates with her clients, and thorough with her work. Thanks to her and her team, I was able to find my place in less than a month from when I started looking. I would recommend Sydney to any buyers, but especially to first-time homebuyers and families! 


I have had the pleasure of working with Deana Baumel for two purchases and one sale of properties in Nanaimo. I was able to rely on Deana timely and friendly advice any time I needed it. I have worked with a handful of agents over the years, and Deana is ahead of the pack with her knowledge, speed to respond, and compassion for her client. Her years of knowledge gave us the edge on purchase and sale, and I was pleased with each transaction. In particular, Deana strategically put my home on the market at the right time, brought in five offers on the home, and we walked away with well over the asking price.

Deana has a fantastic personality, with drive to succeed combined with outstanding commitment and integrity in the way she does business. She is a great pleasure to work with and I recommend her as a realtor.

Sydney is absolutely amazing at what she does. She's been wonderful to work with and has been a huge help to my fiance and I, she definitely is a 110% invested in you. Anyone would be lucky to work with her.

Michael is an articulate and competent professional with extensive knowledge of the Nanaimo real estate industry. He completed a very thorough market research review to establish the market value of my home. He was also very skilled at presenting options of choice at numerous decision points throughout the sale process, discussing the pros and cons of each. This is a crucial skill and what separates a great agent from just a good one, in my view. He is also very consistent at following up on any matters promptly and makes a point of staying in touch with the client on a regular basis.

Bert & Margaret 

It is always a pleasure working with Deana.  You are one of the most positive people we know and love that about you.  You have the ability to take a bad situation and make it right for everyone involved.  You put 110% into your work and it shows.  We are very grateful for everything you have done for us.  We look forward to doing more business with you and you definitely get our referrals.

“Michael was referred to me by a friend who was pleased with his agent services. After meeting with him and discussing his approach, I asked him to manage the sale of my home in Nanaimo. It was a good decision. I have complete confidence in him as a result of that experience.

Michael went the extra mile for me, and as a result I would recommend him to anyone looking for property in Nanaimo.

Thank you Michael…I look forward to living in your city!

I had the opportunity this summer to have Deana as my agent.  I was really impressed with her professionalism and her knowledge of the market.  She worked very hard in finding me exactly what I wanted and was always keeping me informed of what was going on.  I would highly recommend Deana if you are selling or purchasing.  She has a stunning personality and will definitely work hard to find you exactly what you want.

Sydney was always very kind and professional when dealing with us. She was knowledgeable and extremely helpful when it came to helping with the behind the scenes details as well as with fair current market values.
