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.

My elderly father and I viewed the process of moving to aged care and emptying and selling the house with dread, but Laurie helped to make it run smoothly. She is an excellent listener who takes time to understand where people are coming from and what their priorities are. She had the details of the market at her finger tips and a huge network to connect with for services. With her help, we sold above our expectations and in a very short time. I feel lucky to have worked with her and recommend her outstanding professionalism, care, and expertise. - Winnifred Louis

We could not have had a better realtor to help us find what we were looking for. She worked tirelessly to find something that met our very specific needs and did this long distance. We appreciated the time she took to help us eliminate properties and the times she honestly told us certain properties were not a good fit for us. Laurie provided expertise and was able to listen to and accommodate our needs. She patiently answered our many questions about properties and the process and was as excited as we were to find the perfect property for us. - Rob and Cathy
Reply: Thanks so much Rob and Cathy for taking the time to write such nice comments! I truly appreciate the opportunity to be able to work with you and look forward the big "Move In" day where you can enjoy family walks around Thetis Lake. All the Best! Laurie

We wanted to buy an apartment in Greater Victoria to move from Montreal and join our son and his family who lives in Saanich. We had a short budget and were looking for a condo in a good location, 2 bedrooms, good natural light, in-suite laundry, low strata fee ... Our criteria resulted in viewing more than 20 apartments, where my son and daughter-in-law visited each property and at the same time showed the property to us by on-line video chats. Anytime that we requested a visit from Laurie, she was very responsive and made it happen as quickly as possible. Her friendly and kind manner for all the visits were the same as the first one, very supportive and encouraging. She was very knowledgeable and fair to point out both positive and negative aspects of each condo. I have seen some realtor agents who just elaborate about positive aspects of an apartment and sacrifice the truth of mentioning the negative aspects of the apartment only because they want to speed up the process and reach to their commission, but that was not the case for Laurie. She is truly a professional realtor with a high level of integrity. I have also seen realtor agents that only set up an automatic system for the client to receive new properties listed in the last 24 hours but Laurie, in addition to setting up her very useful website, was also actively involved in searching, finding and suggesting apartments to us. Even when a good apartment had a conditional accepted offer, she paid attention if the condition was not met and immediately informed us to be the first to make our offer. Anyways, due to high criteria that we had, we needed to visit many properties. I believe we had a lot of work for Laurie, nearly equivalent to five customers for workload, but she was always happy to support us and to give us encouragement and hope that we would find what we wanted. This eventually happened. We found a beautiful, charming apartment that matches our criteria and budget. All of us are very grateful and appreciate Laurie’s continued support and strongly recommend her. Khadijeh (Buyer) and Ryan Mokarian (Son and Khadijeh’s representative) - Khadijeh
Reply: Thanks very much Khadijeh for your nice words. I am sure you will love your new home and the beautiful neighbourhood, Just perfect for walking by the ocean and enjoying Sidney! Enjoy your new home, Laurie
Laurie helped us to purchase a suitable condo for our parents. She was with us in all stages of the purchase. She is very expert in her field and we used her knowledge through the process. We will definitively go to Laurie again on our next transaction. - Maysam Mokarian
Reply: Thanks very much Maysam for taking your time to write a nice review. It has been a pleasure to find such a perfect retirement condo for your parents!
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
Reply: I really loved working with you Marlene and I hope we get to do it again! I hope you have a great summer!
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
Reply: Thanks Richard for taking the time to write me about your experience. I hope that selling the house has freed you up to spend some more fun times with the kids and get on with family plans.
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
Reply: Hi Jim, I hope you're doing well and having a great fall. I hope lifes treating you well and getting to slip a few holidays in! All the Best! Laurie
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.

She is knowledgeable and goes above and beyond the norm to skillfully represent her client’s best interests! - Bob Taylor
Reply: Thanks so much Bob for the very nice words! It has been my pleasure working with you. I think that even in this wild and crazy market in Victoria that's full of stress we had some fun and found a beautiful new home that I'm sure you are going to love! Laurie

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
Reply: Thanks so much Dar for writing such nice words about our real estate experience. You know I absolutely love working with you and value your friendship a lot!
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

Laurie was our biggest cheerleader and supporter during the process of buying our first place. She was always there 24/7 ready to answer our questions and book the viewings at any time. She was honest and had our best interest in mind which helped us find the place that truly feels like home. - Ira and Ethan
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
Reply: Thanks Sam and Erin for the nice words and I was just reading it and you were so nice to work with and hope to work with you in the future! All the Best!
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
Reply: I wanted to say Thank-you very much for such a nice review and was thinking about you seeing you the other day I was shocked to see how long it's been since we met. I hope you enjoy a great fall in the Best City!
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
Reply: Thanks Darlene and Ross for trusting me with your Dads condo. I really enjoyed working with you both and I was impressed with your family and caring way you take care of your family. I hope you have a Great Fall, which has been such nice weather to get out and enjoy!
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
Reply: Hi Kim, I was just by your old place yesterday and was thinking about you and hope you're doing well! I loved working with you and hope you're having a Great Year! All the Best! Laurie
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
Reply: Hi Jim, Hope you and your family are doing well. You have a great family and it was a pleasure working with you. I was by your moms house and it still looks great! All the Best! Laurie
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
Reply: Thanks Shelia for such a nice review and I enjoyed very much working with you. Working with nice people like you makes real estate so much fun! Thanks again! Laurie
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
Reply: I wanted to say how much I appreciated working with you Trish to sell your dads home. I hope you are doing well and had a great summer. It's hard to believe how fast the time has gone!! All the Best! Laurie
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
Reply: Thanks for the nice review and I hope you are enjoying your new condo! It took awhile for it to be finished but it turned out really well and I sure was lucky to meet and work with such a nice couple as you both. All the Best!
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.
Reply: Thanks Michael for such nice words and I hope your parents are doing well and are enjoying their new condo. I wish The Best for Your Family!!
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
