"Enthusiastic and Professional"

"I highly recommend Katrina and her team. I worked with Katrina for over a year in my search for a home and she supported me in making several offers. She was extremely patient, enthusiastic and professional. Katrina was sure to look into every detail of each potential property and paid attention to my preferences to support me in choosing the right home. I am now in a fantastic home due to Katrina’s attention to detail and excellent communication. Our offer was not the highest (one of nine offers) but because of Katrina’s offer structure and presentation, it was deemed the best and most reliable. Katrina continued to offer support through the entire purchase process and followed up several times after answering any questions I had. I highly recommend The Kamaretsos real estate team. Katrina went above and beyond and I am so thankful to her and her team."

"Like Family"

"Katrina and her team are a pleasure to work with. During my house hunt and eventual purchase (which took over a year!), Katrina was attentive and consistently available and was more than happy to answer all my questions whenever they came up. She gave me valuable insight into Victoria and South Island real estate and was very knowledgeable about the local market. She is pleasant to work with and walked me through the entire buying process, paying close attention to small details that saved me dollars (and headaches) in the long-run. After an exhaustive search, Katrina found me a home I love, in a neighborhood I would have never thought to look in based on her recommendation. Following my purchase, she routinely followed up with me to make sure all questions were answered and that all paperwork and services were set-up before moving, and provided solid recommendations for my insurance/legal/home inspection providers.  After I moved in, she made sure everything was taken care of and followed-up with the seller when there were any questions or issues. I would recommend Katrina and her team to anyone buying/selling a home because she cares about her clients needs and preferences (vs. just making the sale). She treats her clients like family and wants them to love their home and be happy for years to come."

JL (Vancouver, BC) ~ 2020

"Genuinely Cares"

"Much like the patience Katrina has had while awaiting this much deserved testimonial, she also was extremely patient and kind to us while on the journey to helping us buy our first home! Over the course of our 2+ year search, Katrina was flexible and understanding of our needs, switching gears from condos to detached houses to accommodate our growing family. Along the way she was eager to answer our many questions and available when it came down to crunch times. We appreciated her honesty and professionalism, coupled with her kindness and approachability. Her excitement and passion for real estate was appreciated, as it reminded us that in amongst the stress, this process should be fun too! Buying a home in Victoria is a challenge and during a pandemic, there was a whole other layer on intensity but Katrina guided us to though the process from start to finish and ultimately helped us find a home that is the right fit for us. We would recommend Katrina to any homebuyer that is looking for a supportive agent that genuinely cares about her clients."

"Fabulous to Work With!"

"Katrina, Lee and Michelle were fantastic to work with. From the moment I decided I wanted to sell my condo and look for a house, Katrina was incredibly supportive throughout the entire process. Plus, at no point did I feel pressured to make a decision if I wasn’t comfortable with it. The biggest benefit of working with this team is that they really are just that - a team. On the odd occasion Katrina was unavailable, Lee or Michelle immediately texted me with details on whatever I needed. They were very communicative throughout the entire process. At no point did I ever feel like I didn’t know what was going on whether it was the sale of my condo or putting in an offer on a house. I really appreciate everything they did for me and I would highly recommend working with them."

Vanessa (Victoria, BC) ~ 2020


"Amazing to Work With"

"Lee and Katrina were amazing to work with, they were very knowledgeable and helpful with everything we needed. This was the first home we purchased, and they made the whole process seem less. We came across several issues, at no fault of Katrina and Lee; they went above and beyond with helping us sort out and correct the issues. They made sure we would be able to move into our home for our scheduled date despite a number of set backs. Even after we moved in, they were there to help us with an unresponsive developer in getting our issues and deficiencies addressed. They are definitely someone you want in your corner to help you through the whole buying and selling process!"

KW & CT (Langford, BC) ~ 2020

"Great Experience"

"Katrina and Lee are amazing! We had a great experience working with them on finding and purchasing our new home. They were able to answer all our questions regarding properties they were showing to us, different areas of the city, bylaws, etc. They conducted in-depth research on the property we picked, and were able to negotiate the price that was acceptable to both parties. Katrina and Lee definitely went beyond and above our expectations by continuing their support after the purchase by providing their advise, answering our questions, and recommending the ways to connect to our new community. They are amazingly reliable, trustworthy, and highly professional. We know that we can fully rely on their support and help. We greatly appreciate everything they have done for us! Thank you!!!"

"Incredibly Positive, Patient, and Flexible"

"I had a superb experience working with Katrina. She's an incredibly positive, patient, and flexible realtor that went above and beyond with helping me purchase my first condo. I first met her about 4 years ago and throughout the whole purchasing process she was very helpful in providing guidance and help. Even after I purchased my condo she would still reach out to make sure that everything was going well. I would very comfortably recommend her to anyone who's looking to purchase a new home!"

JS (Saltspring, BC) ~ 2020

Such a Delightful Experience"

"Working with Katrina was such a delightful experience. She is a hard working, driven, and thoughtful individual and we are so thankful to her and her team in helping us to find our forever home. She offered us excellent advice and counsel always with our best interests in mind. Katrina always had time to meet with us and go over any questions we may have - and still does several months after our move in date! We are incredibly grateful and feel so lucky we had the opportunity to work with her."

RM & DM (Vancouver, BC) ~ 2020

"Incredible to Work With"

"Lee and Katrina were incredible to work with on our home search!! They were great listeners who helped us identify and buy our dream home. We were moving from the US to Victoria, and they really went out of their way to make the entire process as smooth as possible for us. They are very knowledgeable about the entire greater vVictoria area, and we also benefited from the excellent local recommendations. We highly recommend them!!"

"BEST Realtor I ever had"

"I have been buying and selling over the years and by far Katrina is the BEST Realtor I ever had. She is extremely energetic, knowledgeable, efficient, respectful and caring. Katrina went above and beyond in helping me sell my property from staging to supplying packing materials to help with the move. She was there every step of the way to help constantly lower the stress of selling and moving. I appreciated the clear and constant communication Katrina provided me through this process. Working with the Kamaretsos team, the package of two Realtors was a great advantage. Lee and Katrina are an effective team and were very efficient when it came to dealing with multiple buyers, they have an extreme attention to detail of contracts. I would HIGHLY recommend the Kamaretsos team to anyone looking for Real Estate Services!"

BB (Victoria, BC) ~ 2017

"Fully Committed"

"What a great team to do business with! Be it selling or buying or settling in your new home, The Kamaretsos Team are fully committed above and beyond expectations to your hearts desire with the support and services required. We recently sold and purchased properties with their help and it could not have been any better. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for patient professionals, hardworking and dedicated team."

"In Expert Hands that you can Trust"

"We are very happy with their service, very kind, enthusiastic, listen carefully to what we want, always available and professional. You will feel you are in expert hands that you can trust. Thank you Katrina for your hard and kind works with us. I highly recommend them to anyone who are looking for a dream house."

SM (Victoria, BC) ~ 2017

"Specific House in a Tight Timeframe"

"Katrina worked hard to find us a very specific house in a tight timeframe. She didn’t try to push us out of our comfort zone but instead listened and took action. As first time home buyers and someone who works in the mortgage industry I found Katrina very helpful. Lee was essential in ensuring we had a perfect contract and helped us with all the paperwork. These two together make a great team :) So happy with our home and that we were referred to the Kamaretsos Team!!!”

DB & JB (Victoria, BC) ~ 2017

"Our Dream Home!"

“I can’t say enough GREAT things about the Kamaretsos Team! Both Katrina and Lee went above and beyond to help us find our dream home! I would HIGHLY recommend the to anyone I know that’s looking or thinking about looking. Their knowledge and understanding of the market made looking for a house worry-free. Thanks for everything you did for us!”

DK & MK (Victoria, BC) ~ 2017

"Honesty and Integrity"

“Lee is the best realtor I have had the opportunity to work with. I really appreciate the honesty and integrity that he brings to the whole process. I have looked at countless properties with Lee, from tear downs, potential subdivisions, rentals, old and new, small and big. Throughout the months of looking, Lee has been completely attentive to my needs - scheduling viewings, follow ups, keeping me informed about potentials, and spontaneous requests for information. The real estate advice alone has been a worthwhile learning experience. Even when I wasn’t sure about what I was looking for, I always felt that Lee genuinely wanted to help me get what I want. I am looking forward to the next one. All the best to the Kamaretsos Team!”

BK (Victoria, BC) ~ 2016

"Professional and Thorough Approach!”

“Lee, I would like to thank you and Katrina for the excellent support and service you provided us in our condo purchase in Victoria. We were particularly impressed with the fast response to our questions, detailed and thorough answers, and the way you found an answer when the information was not readily available. It was a pleasure to hear your insight and knowledge of each property we viewed. We also appreciated your flexibility in accommodating our schedule to view properties. You have a very professional and thorough approach!”

RW (Calgary, AB) ~ 2016

"Above and Beyond Expectations"

“I have really appreciated the professional service that Lee has provided in my recent purchase of a property in Sooke. He went above and beyond expectations in our long search, was very diligent and is a fine fellow. I have already referred him to others that I know are looking for real estate. I wish he and his sister Katrina all the best.”

HM (Regina, SK) ~ 2016

"Great Skills and Knowledge"

“What a great realtor Lee is! Always client centred, professional, efficient, detailed, responsible and responsive, and most importantly he has great skills and knowledge helping us successfully get what exactly we wanted!”

WZ (Victoria, BC) ~ 2016

"Could Not Be Happier"

“Lee takes pride in his job and ensures the customer’s best interest is always his priority. I appreciated that he always made himself available to answer questions and ease us through stressful situations. Our situation was challenging, in that we live on the mainland and were purchasing a home on the island. With the hot market we had to move quickly on every decision. Lee assisted by viewing homes and looking into bylaws, prior to our visits. Lee was extremely responsive to all our needs. Whether it was a question we needed answered or a viewing needed, he was always available. Lee’s knowledge of Victoria and networking allowed him to direct us to areas we weren’t even aware of. We ended buying in an area he suggested in Cordova Bay and could not be happier. We simply could not have done this without him.”

JM & EM (Langley, BC) ~ 2016

"Goes the Extra Mile"

“Lee Kamaretsos is consummate professional.  He works diligently and effectively to take care of all the details required in approaching the sale of a property.  This was our experience with him in the sale of our condo.  He communicates at every level and pays strict attention to detail.  He is always available and goes the extra mile to make sure that the work he is doing is at the highest level. We highly recommend him to you.”

LV & JT (Victoria, BC) ~ 2015

"Cheerfully Took us to Viewings"

“My wife and I were looking for a Condo in Victoria and were referred to Lee from another satisfied client. We talked with him and he zeroed in on our requirements immediately. While we took a few months to find the right condo, Lee cheerfully took us to viewings and worked hard to find the right fit until we found our property. We have already recommended him to friends and would not hesitate to use him again.  We very much appreciated his professionalism, hard work and patience!  Thanks Lee!”

JC & NC (Millbay, BC) ~ 2015

"Old World Charm"

“Lee became our realtor quite by chance as we called him to show us one of his listings and he was so impressive that we asked him to become our realtor right there and then. We did not realize how fortunate we were to have met him until months later when he closed the purchase deal of our house. There were many back and forth negotiations involved and his advice was priceless. There are no words to describe the challenges that we faced and how supportive, patient, and always ready to lend a hand Lee was every step of the way. Even after the closing, he would offer his assistance by recommending people, by offering to help with his truck, and putting family time aside to come and bring the keys  to our new place at Halloween night with his young daughter a day early.  Lee belongs to the new generation of realtors who come with education and the old world charm and sense of service that is very unique and much needed in today's real estate market. We highly recommend Lee to anyone who is looking for a top notch realtor.” 

MH (Victoria, BC) ~ 2014

"Fantastic Realtor from Start to Finish"

“My house had been on and off the market serval times in the years. It just would not sell! Went through numerous realtors, and all they could say was "drop the price," over and over again! Don't get me wrong, this was not an easy sell!! My boss suggested Lee, at this point, I was willing to try anything. So I give Lee a call and right off the get go he was doing things that no realtors had even offered. His thoughtful ideas and suggestions and honesty got people In the door. Lee has excellent communication skills and was there for me whenever needed. His outlets and knowledge of social Media really helped the sale happen quickly, he had my house listed on everything from MLS to Facebook. Lee was a fantastic realtor from start to finish and finally sold my house for me!! If your looking to get the job done, Lee is your man!!”

SB (Victoria, BC) ~ 2014

"Hardworking and Determination"

“Lee Kamaretsos sold myself and a friend our first home last year. He was professional at all times and went out of his way to make sure we were happy. If it is hardworking and determination you are looking for in a real estate agent, then Lee is 100% the right man for the job. We will continue to use him in selling and purchasing our homes for the rest of our lives. We definitely give him 2 thumbs up. Sincerely a very happy customer :)”

AS (Victoria, BC) ~ 2013

"Its the Perfect Home"

"Just wanted to send you an email to thank you for all your patience, support, guidance and most of all quality of advice in assisting my family and I purchasing our new (fantastic) home. We have been in now for almost 6 months and couldn't be happier its the perfect home. We spent a lot of time going through options and viewing houses and your knowledge and experience was invaluable in guiding us to our purchase, every question was answered and your integral understanding of the Real Estate market and continual tireless search to find our house much appreciated. The tools you set us up with helped us to search and find the houses without a lot of the normal legwork and made this process simply and easy. I recommend you to everyone and anyone I hear who is looking for that perfect place to live and wish you and the business every success in the future!"

PD & MD (Victoria, BC) ~ 2013

"Accepted Offer at the Price we Wanted"

In July 2013, we found our dream house... However, in order to get it, we needed to sell our townhouse within a month...  A tough task in this market! Lee was instrumental in making himself available for viewings and open houses, and assisted with photos, listing, and marketing our property. To our disbelief, we had a firm accepted offer at the price we wanted within 16 days!!! We would gladly refer any of our friends or family to Lee knowing they would be in good hands… Thank you Lee for all your hard work, we couldn’t have done it without you!
