With over twenty years as a successful and respected Realtor when you choose to work with me you can be confident you have chosen the right realtor to work with. Helping clients buy and sell Real Estate is a huge part of my life and I am enthusiastically committed to giving you an outstanding experience. Laurie has built her reputation as a tenacious agent with integrity and honesty and an extremely strong work ethic that you can always trust to get the job done – whatever it takes. I love real estate and the people I am lucky enough to meet everyday. It is particularly satisfying to see my clients find their perfect home. If you choose to work with me you will be guaranteed of every effort I can make to get you that great home you are looking for using all the experience I have gained over the last twenty three years negotiating the best price for buyers and the highest price for sellers. I have a very real appreciation for what having your own home means to all of us as I have 4 grown and can relate to your goals as they change throughout life and find that perfect fit for your new lifestyle changes. I love working as much with retiring people looking to downsize, young couples looking to find a larger home to meet the needs of their growing family as I do with first time buyers. Before I became a realtor I was a commercial airline pilot and was the 3rd female in Canada to attain an Airline Transport Rating. I am very detail oriented and in this competitive market I like to think I add a great advantage to my clients with my experience and dedication to finding their perfect new home! My goal is to make buying or selling your home a very stress free and positive experience and it makes me proud to feel I achieve that daily. I like to win (for my clients) but do so with a calm demeanor and a smile.
Laurie Appleton is a wonderful realtor. Very responsive. Goes out of her way to ensure the property is well presented. Found a very competent painter to freshen up the place before listing it. She dealt with the council to obtain documents so I didn’t have to do that. - Marlene
Laurie is the most amazing and supportive realtor I’ve known. A true professional! When viewing a home she notices every detail (nothing escapes her) and reviews those details after. If a home seems challenging in its current state, she has great vision of what could be, and a great deal of design knowledge. Her sense of humour and affable personality makes her a treat to work with. It’s obvious she enjoys her profession and her clients! We will miss spending time with her now that the deal has closed. - Tom and Pat Lawrence
Reply: Thanks Tom and Pat for taking the time to write such a nice review for me. I feel the same way about you both and think we have formed a real friendship through our search. I'm looking forward to visiting when you move in! Laurie
Laurie was very nice to work with , her professionalism was great and she was very easy to talk to and she worked very hard to help me sell my property and I would recommend her in a heartbeat she was that good at what she does. - Richard Kemp
very helpful did what needed to be done to sell my dads place. kept me informed of showings and what else was for sale in the same building even though it was a down time in the market - Jason Witteveen
Reply: Thanks for taking the time to write a nice review for me. I truly appreciate it as I know you are busy these days! Thanks again! Laurie
Working with Laurie Appleton is working with the best, as simple as that . I had an experience as no other. Laurie is very professional and is very knowledgeable of the Victoria real estate market. I worked in the past with other real estate agents, but no comparison. As I did not live in the house anymore Laurie went the extra mile to help me, with everything. She cut the lawn 2 times a week and even put the electricity bill on her name . Laurie gave me an update every week. I can't recommend Laurie enough, a fantastic person to work with. Thank You Laurie for everything . - Dirk Van Damme
Reply: Thanks Dirk for such a nice review! I was very happy to be able to work with you and help you sell your home. It was a pleasure and nice to know your beautiful home has a lovely couple that are excited to make your home theirs! All the Best!
I had pleasure of working with Laurie again to purchase my third property in the last 4 months. She is a passionate real estate agent with high level of expertise. She is very nice, proactive, and active listener. She has always been a great support during negotiations and accomplishes everything with a remarkable degree of integrity and competency that is difficult to find these days. She spends her time for you and really goes above and beyond. For example, a few days before closing date we asked her if we can go to condo to do some cleaning and touch up on the walls. She not only quickly arranged to go there, but also stayed with us and helped us with floor and walls' cleaning! I definitely recommend her. - Ryan Mokarian
Reply: Thanks so much for taking the ime to speak about your experience. I have really enjoyed working with you and your whole family!
I recently bought a home with my two cousins and Laurie was extremely helpful and pleasant to work with during the whole process! We are all first time home buyers and she was very good with holding our hands through the process and answering our sometimes silly seeming questions. While we already had a property in mind when we reached out to Laurie she still provided us with alternative listings that were good matches to our criteria, and efficiently shepherded us through the process once we decided for sure on the initial property. She was always easy to get a hold of and very accommodating of our various schedules when meeting up (not always easy especially when one of us works night shift). We were recommended Laurie by a friend and are very glad to have taken that recommendation. - Melissa
Reply: Thanks very much Melissa for such comments. I am really looking forward to you and your cousins moving in and enjoying great times in your new home!
As a result of the recommendation of a good friend, I very fortunately contracted with Laurie Appleton to sell my house. She was a tremendous help in preparing my house to sell, helping me pack up, as well as doing extra errands, keeping in touch and generally helping me. She is also very patient! She got along well with others who were involved. Laurie went beyond what would normally be the job of a Real Estate sales person. I highly recommend her. - Penelope Hallet-Mainguy
Reply: Thanks very much Penelope for taking your time to write a review for me. I hope you enjoy a lot of good times moving closer to your family!
Laurie is supernice and works hard. She walked me through the whole process and sold my home in a matter of days. I got exactly what I wanted for it. I would highly recommend her to anyone - Jim Hampson-Booth
Laurie is one of the best agents my husband and I have been working with to buy properties. She is responding within maximum half an hour and be there early in every appointment. Even after we purchased the property she was available to be there to answer any question or concerns. During the viewing she was honest and told us the pros and cons of the property.There were times even though I liked the property, she still gave her valuable thoughts and it helped us to make a wiser decision. She even helped us finding a tenant for the condo days after closing the sale and passed by to answer our questions on how fire place works!! I definitely continue working with Laurie in our future buying and selling. Also, I recommend Laurie as a right choice of a professional agent. - Maryam Ghanipour
Reply: Thanks very much Maryam for the nice words. You are such a nice couple and I really enjoy working with you. I really value your nice feedback! Enjoy a Great Summer!
Laurie’s was terrific. She helped me work through my needs without directing my choices. She was always cheerful and well prepared when she picked me up at lunch from work and after work. In the end the property that I wanted quite badly came up for sale while I was away. Laurie viewed it herself with my family in town and kept pressing until the offer got accepted. I would not be in something so perfect for me at a price in my budget if it weren’t for Laurie. - Michele Stott
Reply: Thanks Michele! I have to say you are such a nice person and I look forward to visiting you in your new home and seeing you put your own style into the house and enjoying the great James Bay location!
As a first-time home buyer in Victoria, I was really fortunate and grateful to know and work with Laurie Appleton as my realtor. She was very professional and knowledgeable, and the process of buying home went so smoothly and successfully. Meanwhile, she was kind and patient, and she really cared about the details and needs of my family while searching for the best home option. She offered her honest and professional opinion when I asked and helped me to consider things I hadn’t thought of. I’ll definitely reach out to Laurie in the future, and I highly recommend her to all my friends and family! - Adel
Reply: Thanks so much for taking the time to write about your experience. I am very excited to see your family move into your new home in just a few weeks and enjoy the summer!
Laurie is a wonderful person and a skilled and knowledgeable realtor. In less than a week bought a new home and sold our existing home.

I cannot express strongly enough, how highly I recommend Laurie Appleton’s real estate services. I have dealt with many realtors from coast to coast over the past 30 years.

Well, where to start ... After I sold my home in Sidney, and then after viewings at many, many homes I purchased a home in Central Saanich. The purchase of my new home went so smooth again thanks to Laurie's. She was patient, kind, knowledgeable, professional, and personable. She helped us and never tired of showing the homes, and writing offers. Then she found the perfect one for me. I am so grateful for her knowledge, unending time spent with me, patient and professional manner. I am a lucky lady to have a realtor so wonderful. - Maria Orr
Laurie is at the top of her class when it comes to real estate. She is always willing to get you into a place as soon as it comes on the market and if you are using her services to sell your home she will make that her number one ambition. Being a professional real estate agent is her life's ambition. A person can not receive better service than Laurie provides. - Larry

Reply: Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a nice review. It was my pleasure to work with you both . Enjoy your new home!!!
Laurie was great to work with and found us a beautiful condo with a view. It's a tough market right now to be a buyer but she stuck with us through 2 offers before we got the condo we love. Laurie did not pressure us even though she must have wondered if we would ever find a condo we liked and be successful! She is always positive and honest as to the positives and negatives of each property. We would strongly recommend Laurie to our family and friends in the future. - Sam and Erin
Laurie was recommended to me by a friend, and I could not have asked for a more competent and friendly realtor. She was great at answering my questions and was a very good listener. Keeping in mind what I had established as my ideal property, she was very helpful in identifying the good points about a property, and the not-so-good points, and I really appreciated that. It was very important to her that I be happy with whatever property I chose to buy. If you are looking for an excellent realtor, I would highly recommend Laurie! - Judy Booth
Laurie Appleton is the ideal realtor. She’s resourceful, knowledgeable, talented, professional, and empathetic. After 23 years in his James Bay condo (215-405 Quebec Street) my 99 year old father-in-law was moving across the province to live with us. Between taking care of him and preparing the condo for listing I felt overwhelmed. I wished for a super realtor who would take over and do what needed to be done. And my wish was answered with Laurie Appleton. Laurie came over the same day we called her (within an hour). She talked with me and my father-in -law. She understood our situation and was very empathetic. She told me to focus on my dad and leave the rest to her. I sensed that she was genuine and I placed myself in her capable hands. Laurie didn’t disappoint. My father-in-law was very impressed with her. He said “that woman is a great sales-lady!” I was able to put everything else aside and focus on my father-in-law. We left a cozy but dated condo and flew across the province. After only a couple of days we saw the listing. Laurie had staged the condo beautifully. We barely recognized it. My father-in-law said buyers would have a bidding war over it. I thought so too. And that’s exactly how it went. It sold the very first day it was listed. and for more than the listing price! Laurie Appleton is my new hero! I totally recommend her if you’re buying or selling your home. Laurie staged our condo beautifully; it never looked better. As a result of her hard work it sold quickly and for a record-setting price in its building. Couldn't ask for a better result -- or a better realtor. I recommend Laurie very highly! - Darlene and Ross Young
A lot of skills are required to be a successful real estate agent and I would give Laurie top marks in all categories. One area I felt she absolutely excelled in was staging the property. With most people shopping online now this can be a real difference maker. I also appreciated her enthusiastic and professional manner. - Kim Kroeger
Laurie helped my mother sell her home in Dean Park, North Saanich BC. Laurie was very professional. She arrived for our initial consult prepared with complete property documentation and assessment of the local market. Laurie also utilised an amazing 3-dimensional photography system that provided a model of the house for dimensionally accurate virtual walk-through. Laurie's professionalism, thoroughness, and empathy helped my mom focus on her move and to worry less about the sale. - James Cox
I had no previous experience of selling a house, a real novice. Laurie guided me through it, answered all my many questions, was extremely efficient and got me a quick sale. I can’t say enough about how impressed l was at how easily (for me) we moved through the procedure. I would highly recommend Laurie to anyone. - Sheila Cox
Laurie secured a rapid sale on my father's home. Her skills in staging the home were far beyond our expectations - she spent many days getting the home ready to show, organizing excellent photographs, floor plans etc., and managing a busy weekend of showings. We are very grateful for the great service she provided. - Trish B
We met with Laurie when my husband and I decided it was time to move from our two story house to a smaller place. Laurie was recommended by friends, who were impressed with her dedication and friendly nature. She was a great choice for us, and made our sale quick and simple. An extremely nice person who genuinely cared about our anxieties and concerns surrounding our sale. We could not be happier, and will definitely be using her again if we have to make another move in the future! - Carol
Laurie has been amazing and very attentive to our needs and desires. She had tons of knowledge to help us choose the right place and we decided that a pre-build condo was the correct choice for us. She was always willing to help and gave us very insightful opinions. Would recommend her to anyone and definitely use her in the future! - Jennifer and Jordan
Laurie was referred to us by a close friends of ours, who recently bought a new home. We were undertaking the sale of our parents family home of 35 years. Something that we all dreaded to some degree. My parents were downsizing from a fairly large home to a much smaller condo. They'd accumulated a massive amount of ’stuff’ over the decades of living and raising us there. Laurie actually helped my parents sort through boxes of treasures. FOR HOURS! Helping move the process along with the utmost professionalism and caring. All I can say is; WHAT A PLEASURE! A great experience working with Laurie for the first time, and without question we will recommend her to anyone who needs a realtor! Laurie helped turn our 'dreaded project' into a pleasure. Thank you Laurie! - Michael S.
Laurie was amazing, I cannot express how fantastic she was. We relocated from another province during pandemic, and she helped find the perfect house for our family. Kind, understanding, got to know our family and what we needed. Gave good advice and suggestions for areas, house and just what she thought of the neighborhood. She will be the first person we call when we decide to move. Will recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor. Fantastic! - Alison Leckie

We serendipitously found Laurie through Rate-My-Agent.com and we firmly believe we would not have succeeded in purchasing our dream home without her.

We 100% recommend Laurie. - Hank Ferber and Gay Bartholomew

We really enjoyed working with Laurie! We were not in a rush for a home, but rather looking for the "right buy" in our preferred area. She was patient and honest as we sorted through many listings. When the right house finally came along she helped us be successful while navigating a multiple offer scenario without us overpaying for the property. Laurie really pulled through when issues came up with the deal, and she sought legal advice and made sure we were protected. Without her knowledge and expertise we would have risked loosing out on a perfect property! - Shelby Hart
