I cannot say enough good things about the service we received but I'll try! Working with Jan was a stress free experience. She is always professional, personable, punctual, and responsive, and we'd highly recommend the Stromars to anyone buying a home in the Nanaimo area! - The Bailey family
Reply: Thank you so much Jan & Mick! You were a true pleasure to work with. We hope you enjoy many happy years in your beautiful new home!!
When I listed my condo I interviewed several local realtors. Jan and Tom's combination of experience, professionalism and genuine personal touch were all deciding factors. Less than three weeks later my condo sold at asking without conditions. I was out of country, but the sale was smoothly coordinated. Did I mention that Jan and Tom were confident I could realize a 15% higher return than any of the other realtors were willing to work towards? I have recommended them to my family. I recommend them to you. - Brian Pareis
Tom and Janice have been my realtors since 2004. They sold my first home, found my perfect second home and then sold that home for the price I wanted in record time in the worst market in 10 years. They always made me feel like I was more important than the sale which, in my opinion, is rare. The next time I buy a home, I will definitely call Tom and Janice. I give two thumbs up and strongly recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell their home. - Carrie Tuinstra
My husband was an award-winning realtor in Nanaimo for 20 years and during that time, worked with Janice and Tom on the same real estate team. When my husband retired in 2010 and we started selling rental properties, there was no question in our mind that we would go with Jan and Tom. They're the perfect mesh of up-to-date real estate technology and the gift of relating in a personal manner to buyer and seller needs while having a high sense of integrity, attention to detail, and professionalism. We plan to list our other rental properties with them over the next 2 years and we don’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone we talk to who is thinking of buying or selling. They’re not only our realtors, now they’ve become good friends. - P. Weir & S. Whitman
Jan and Tom are hands down, AMAZING! Coming from out of province, with only 3 days to find a house, (and on my own), both Jan and Tom took excellent care of me. Starting with the detailed emails and information sent to me online, phone calls, and then the warm welcome here in Nanaimo, all was superb. The first thing that struck me was Jan’s down to earth honesty and appraisal of each home we were about to visit. Having never been to Nanaimo before, that was exactly what I needed. She gave me valuable advice about properties, lifestyles, and trends for each neighbourhood, including things to look out for, events, and proximity to the places we would frequent on a regular basis. Jan was very familiar with not only the structure of properties, but strata rules, city guidelines, interior design and general “mood” of the homes. Emails, texts, and late night phone calls were all answered quickly and thoroughly. I really felt she made the time to be available for only me during my quick visit. Interactions were always friendly and polite. I never felt rushed or under pressure, and every morning I was picked up at the hotel by either Jan or Tom, on time, and with a smile, which are simple things, but during a stressful time, put me at ease. After my 3-day whirlwind tour, Jan and Tom and I relayed all the property details to my husband, (which means they had to explain everything AGAIN), and we decided on a home that was perfect for our lifestyle and within our budget. But the service didn’t end there. They sent us referrals for lawyers, home builders and contractors for the renovations, and have since been there for us as we navigate our way through a new city finding doctors, places to eat, fitness centres, and interesting things to do. For us Jan and Tom are more than real estate agents. They are good neighbours, friends who take the time to get to know you and your needs. We would highly recommend their services. We couldn’t be more grateful for what they have done for us. If we were to sell or buy any property in the future, the first ones we would call would be Jan and Tom. - Linka van As
Deciding to move from Toronto to BC to be nearer our children and grandchildren in Nanaimo and Vancouver, we found ourselves at the height of the real estate craze in Vancouver that was affecting prices in Nanaimo. As we tried to wrap our heads around the prices, square footage and loss of Ontario home and community, Janice provided answers to many questions, asked significant questions of us and what we wanted, and brightened our days as she accompanied us on the home tours she arranged. She was unfailingly professional and helpful as we considered, offered, changed our minds. We are very grateful for her and for the services she offered as a real estate professional. We highly recommend her and Tom. - A Finney
Janice and Tom were awesome to work with. They coordinated the sale of our home and made finding our new place a stressfree experience. Their pictures and advertising are spectacular and they were very patient helping us find our new home. - Kerri & Sherwin Isaac
