Kel was great to deal with. We were attempting to move from the Okanagan to Vancouver island. We were looking for a house with acreage, set up for horses. Kel was able to arrange our time so that we got the maximum viewings in the time we had available. He was also able to get us appointments on the fly, as some properties sold as we were en route! Kel was available when we needed him to be, and was excellent in short-listing the properties that would best fit our needs, saving us from unnecessary travel. We would absolutely use Kel again if we decide to upgrade!!

We initially communicated with Kel from Hope BC where we had just sold our townhouse. Right from the first call we could tell that Kel was personable, professional and interested in finding the right property for us in our retirement. It was an absolute pleasure working with Kel as it was obvious he had our best interests in mind and steered us through the purchase process effortlessly. We have recommended Kel to our friends and family. Thank you Kel!

We engaged Kel to assist us in finding a new home on Vancouver Island after a recommendation through our realtor in the lower mainland. We found Kel to be personable, professional and very knowledgeable of the Vancouver Island Market. Kel is a great family man as we could tell from the very beginning, we enjoyed the many loving stories of his family he shared with us! He showed us many, many homes and did a fabulous job of working around our travels back and forth from the mainland. But where Kel’s expertise and kind manner really shined (even more!) was when the purchase of our house got tricky he supported us 100%, working through the issues and communicating with us so we never felt forgotten! There was an unexpected delay before we could take occupancy of our new home, Kel kept in touch almost daily, communicating updates to us … ensuring we were comfortable, happy and not losing heart. When we finally moved in to our new home Kel was there making sure everything was going smoothly, ensuring appliances were installed, and providing refreshments for our far travelled movers!! It’s difficult to find the words to convey how completely happy we have been with Kel’s service … in addition to having all of the great qualities we would hope for in a realtor (friendly, professional, kind, caring, knowledgeable, diligent … he is definitely all of those!), when the chips were down and we needed him to be there for us the most he was! We THINK we’ve found our forever home, however, if we find ourselves in need of a realtor’s services again we will definitely contact Kel and hope that he is available! Thanks for all your hard work, Kel! ⁃ Tracy and Mike

During Covid 19 we were unable to personally view our new home and Kel went above and beyond to FaceTime a walk through the home with us. He is a very honest and thorough professional. I will never forget how he assisted us when we moved into our new home as the garage door was acting up and he contacted the repair man who turned up almost immediately to fix the garage. He even went out of his way to have a cleaner come into our new house to do some cleaning for us. Thank you so much Kel. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a new home.

Kel Parry worked so hard for both my mom and I as we had to sell the house we owned together and then buy two separate houses during a red hot market!! His patience and good humor as well as his expertise saw us successfully purchase both of our respective dream homes. We can’t thank you enough, Kel!

I’ve recently had the pleasure of retaining Kel to sell my house. He came recommended to me by another realtor and it was an excellent recommendation, beyond my expectations. His passion about helping clients was evident in his professionalism and expediency in responding to all my queries and concerns. His knowledge of the market was thorough, and he helped me navigate through the intricacies of the current market and process and my house was sold within a week. He also helped me with many challenges I encountered before Closing and went way above and beyond the call of duty and his responsibilities as a realtor. I am forever grateful for his support. Overall, I received exceptional representation and service and highly recommend Kel to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate. I certainly would retain his services again. Thank you Kel for all you have done for me!

Where do I begin. Kel came highly recommended from a colleague of our real estate agent in Squamish. We wanted someone with a thorough knowledge of both the market on the island and someone we could trust had our best interest at heart when it was all said and done. We found him to be honest, extremely hard working and served as a dang good therapist when anxieties hit us from one angle or another. When we missed the 8.40am ferry from Horseshoe Bay (covid extended lineup) what did he do with our itinerary? He immediately got back on the phone to those agents and successfully rescheduled all 5 showings for later in the day as we had to now wait for the 11.15. Plus he picked us up at ferry terminal as walk-ons from Nanaimo so we didn't have to pay for car fees. With masks on and plenty of hand sanitizer we ultimately found our house that particular day. Because the market was hot we ended up putting an offer on our ferry ride home later that night while Kel cut short his anniversary dinner with his wife in order to broker the deal. And while it looked like it might not happen at one point (another offer was ahead of our) Kel diligently kept us in the game only to find out the next morning our strategy paid off. Yes Kel is the real deal. Highly recommended.

Kel is a fantastic realtor with great knowledge of the market and all round great guy to deal with. He helped us purchase our first property in Canada and worked tirelessly to find a property that met our particular needs and also helped us navigate the legalities of property purchase for a family recently migrated to Canada. Kel is professional, patient and polite and also a lot of fun to work with. I can't recommend Kel highly enough to anyone looking to buy/sell real estate!

Kel represented us well throughout the process of selling our property. Kel is professional, hard working, honest and courteous. Kel went above and beyond in assisting us by organizing some of the things we needed to complete prior to the showings (for example, arranging for some minor repairs to be done and being present when carpets needed to be cleaned etc...). Kel was always prompt in his replies when we needed advice. He has excellent knowledge of market conditions and trends which in turn helped us appropriately price our property. We sold our property quickly for a price we were very happy with. Kel represented our interests and we highly recommend him.

Kel was recommended to us by another realtor in Vancouver. We live in Vancouver and trusted Kel to handle the purchase of a detached house near the water in Nanaimo. Kel’s level of service was over the top in supporting us through the entire process. He even proactively spearheaded oil tank testing on our behalf – amazing! I can’t recommend Kel enough, and will definitely be working with him again in the future.
