The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to show you their correspondence. Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my down-to-earth and honest approach has earned me many friends - I think that's fantastic!

It is my pleasure to recommend Laura Godbeer as a realtor and as a person.
Buying or selling a house is difficult. Not only because of all the details surrounding the pricing of the house but also because of the awful emotional side, which is a side that I have found so many realtors seem to completely ignore . The choice to move doesn’t always come as a result of something pleasant; life can throw some curves that force one to sell a home. And even if the move is welcome, it always comes with so much uncertainty, so many decisions, and so many worries that one will make a bad decision, a big bad decision that can’t be changed. I know this from experience – I have bought and sold six of my own houses.


But that’s where Laura Godbeer is special. She understands this emotional side, and how very big it is. I knew that the first time I met her. I had called her as one of three realtors when I had to put up for sale the house my mother and I lived in when mom died last year. Laura arrived at the door with brochures and information just as the other two realtors had, but the first thing she said was, “I am sorry about your mother,”, and the first thing she did was hand me a beautiful bouquet of flowers.


It was the beginning of a successful professional relationship but also a friendship. Laura didn’t just offer well-researched and well-thought-through advice about price and what to repair and what wasn’t worth repairing, but she listened carefully and fully to my concerns and my hopes. Yes, her advice always reflected sound thinking about the market but what I particularly appreciated was how flexible that advice always was in terms of what I could manage, and how we might be able to achieve the best balance.


Another of Laura’s unique skills is her ability to get things done well and with a minimum of fuss. Her organizing of the various movers (I had to have pieces of furniture and other of mom’s special mementoes sent to seven other siblings in five locations across Canada), and the seemingly endlessly required number of trades people to prepare the house for sale just seemed to happen by magic, it was so efficiently done by Laura.


Through all of this, it was such a relief to have someone like Ms. Godbeer beside me.

Thank you, Laura.

Hi Laura,
This letter is in support for you and the Vancity mortgage helper program. Based on my own experience, it is indeed a BIG opportunity to be given the chance to own our first home without even worrying much on a big money down. As a migrant to this country, its very hard to start a living, working alone is not enough, we have to come up with diversified strategies how to make a living and to be good at it. With this mortgage helper program, it is very beneficial to those who are just starting here in Canada, most migrant pay rents for an apartment or house, and its more likely just adding a little bit more can be for mortgage payment.. so why get stuck with renting if there are companies/ banks offering mortgage helper program like Vancity.  Having our own house will build up an equity,  a nice feeling of achievement and success.  Hard to explain how my whole family feels.. everybody is glad and fortunate . Surely i will tell and recommend to all my friends about this program, how they can help people' s lives easier and fulfulling. 
Thanks so much again

It was a Buyer’s market. Potential buyers were making low-ball offers.  It had been over a year; I was getting discouraged and was ready to take my home off the market. Then Laura walked into my life.  I was immediately taken with how straight-forward and honest Laura was.  Laura showed my house once, then twice, and the house was sold at almost full asking price.  I had a straight-forward, signed offer within 24 hrs.  Laura stayed on top of all the details and I was able to sit back and relax!  Laura is not only professional at what she does, she is also a warm, caring person.

" Laura is very through and efficient and has very good knowledge about real estate transactions. Without her buying a house wouldn't have been possible"...

Laura is wonderful at her job.  She is the first real estate agent I had dealings with and will be the only.  It was luck to have met her on a first try.  She is extremely flexible, knowledgeable and cares about what she does.  What I especially appreciate is her honesty.  This was my first home purchase and I needed honest opinions, not "smoke."  She understood what I was looking for and was able to point out the important points in my search, respecting my needs/wants.  Laura was always on time and lightning fast at returning e-mails/calls and setting up viewings.  I would recommend her to any of my friends and family and can say it was a great experience working with Laura.


- Danielle

"It was a pleasure working with you Laura.  You were always professional offering good advice as you worked hard to get our house purchase and sale job done.  All involved came away happy with the outcomes which is not an easy accomplishment. We won't hesitate to recommend you to others."

Having a son about to enter UVIC we went from considering being tenants to being Landlords and it could not have been more smooth.  Upon a recommendation from our neice we met Laura Godbeer.....she met us on very short notice....and within 6 days we were owners/landlords....Laura's knowledge of the market gave us such reassuance that we were doing the right thing.  She walked us through EVERYTHING....right down to helping us interview tenants. We had no idea a realitor would go to such lengths.  Everything was timing and Laura had that down to a tee. We would and do recommend Laura Godbeer to everyone interested in buying or selling Real Estate in the Victoria area, she made it so easy. Many, many thanks Laura.

- Rob and Suzy

Laura, I am giving one of your cards to a friend at work as she has told me she has a friend who wants to sell her townhouse.  I told her that you're one of the most organized and professional realtors we have come in contact with in a while.

Thanks again,

- Lisa & Dale

Laura Godbeer is an awesome realtor who always seems to put her clients first. She always sent me updates on new places...even when I changed my mind a dozen times about what I was looking for. Big shout out of thanks to Laura. I highly recommend everyone thinking of buying and selling a house to use her as your realtor....you won't be disappointed!

- Bob and Sarah

Laura has been a wonderful realtor to work with. I was in a situation where I needed to find a new home within a month. She kept me updated with listings that fit my needs and we found my new condo on our fist day of searching. I was so impressed with her professionalism and conscientious attitude. She gave me useful advice without the feeling of being pressured. I made an offer that same day and it was accepted later that night. Throughout the whole process Laura was professional, positive and enthusiastic. She kept me aware of all details, always making sure any questions and concerns I had were taken care of. By the end of the month I was moving into my new home. This is the first home I have purchased and having Laura as my realtor made the whole experience a positive one. I highly recommend her as a realtor.

I have been extremely pleased with the services provided by Laura Godbeer. I have used her for many real estate transactions, and will continue to do so for the rest of my life. She always puts my needs first, and was very professional and proactive while I was buying and selling. Thank you very much for all your hard work!

- Cliff and Susan

Laura made our first time home purchase an easy step. She walked us through the things that we needed to consider when buying a home so that we would be prepared. She was around anytime we wanted to go and view houses and she was very patient with us. She provided us with great expertise and helped us get the house that we fell in love with. We have already recommended Laura to my Aunt and would definitely recommend her to anyone else that we come across that is in need of a realtor.

Thanks again Laura!
- Jason and Genelle

Laura's sound advice and constant commitment to us were invaluable throughout our home buying experience. We moved to Victoria from out-of-province and had no idea of residential properties on the Peninsula. The house that we eventually bought is wonderful. Her service was fantastic and we certainly will recommend her services to others looking to buy or sell homes out here.

Thanks so much Laura!
- Steve and Carolyn

The purchase feels very good. I truly appreciate everything that you did throughout this process. We look forward to working with you again in the future. We will always highly recommend using services provided by Laura Godbeer. She is a special person who will do very well in this business because she sets herself apart from the others in a very significant way. Keep up the great work! Kindest regards and gratitude.

-Rebecca & Mark

Laura's dedication and professionalism was instrumental in securing the purchase of my first condo. Her support and knowledge made my first real estate experience a positive one. I would recommend her to anyone interested in buying a property.

We were very impressed with Laura's knoweldge and hard work while selling our townhouse. Not only did we get an offer in a week, but it was almost full asking price! Her incredible attention to detail and follow up through out the whole never wracking process was amazing. She even helped us by bringing in another inspector to verify the issues brought to the attention by the buyers, and it turns out it was an easy fix. The whole deal could have fallen through, but Laura's quick thinking and vast resources helped us sell our house. Thank you Laura, we definitely will be recommending your services to everyone we know!

- C & M

I used Laura Godbeer in purchasing my first house. Her professionalism and attention to all the little details was refreshing. Her commitment to my needs, incredible knoweldge of Victoria's real estate market and sharp shooting negotiating skills helped secure my dream home. She even went above and beyond by helping me find the right tenant for my suite. I could not have done this without Laura's help. Thank you so much, you are a rare talent!

My husband and I are from Calgary and were visiting our son in Victoria over Christmas. On our last day Laura took us out to view some properties we had shown an interest in. The one in particular that we were interested in was a forclosure, and neither myself or my husband were aware of the process involved in purchasing a house in forclosure. Laura explained the procedure and kept us updated after we returned to Calgary. She appeared in court to represent us, thus not having to pay for another trip to Victoria. Laura was thorough, professional and extremely helpful throughout this whole process (which is much more complicated than we had anticipated). I would not hesitate to recommend Laura to any prospective buyers or sellers. Thanks again.

We were most impressed with the way you completed the sale of our wooded acreage with two houses.  Finding the right client took some time, but you finally came up with what certainly appears to have been the right combination. 

We are very happy in the new home you found for us after looking at so many.  The one we chose, the one we're happy in, was not on any of the lists we came up with, but it's the one you discovered with without any help from us.  

For your untiring service in handling these two deals we remain most grateful.
