Experience... 45 + years

Welcome!  My main goal in dealing with you is to exceed your expectations… whatever they may be!

One of the largest financial decisions you'll ever make is the purchase or sale of your home... which makes choosing the right Realtor® essential. I provide a personal and individually customized approach to buyers and sellers who are looking to move to the greater Victoria area. As a long-time resident of the area, I will put my in-depth knowledge of the city to work for you. I understand the ever changing conditions of the local Victoria real estate market and will provide valuable insight to you whether you are buying, selling or both!

I understand that working with buyers or sellers is based on forming a trusting relationship. I work to do this initially with buyers by taking the time to find out what is important to you. I find this is time extremely well spent and it helps me ensure that as a buyer you make sound decisions that will stand you in good stead now and when it comes time to sell that home to the next buyer. As a skilled negotiator and very long, full time REALTOR®, it is my job not only to find the best possible home for you in your price range but also to make the home buying experience pleasant and as stress free as  possible. I often work with out of town clients who are transferred to Victoria and have only a few days to make this very important decision. In many cases, the home has been found very quickly, leaving the balance of the house hunting trip for the pleasant task of getting to know the city and area better.

When working with sellers, there is much to be considered. One of my strengths is doing a walk through of your home with you to find out if there are areas that could be improved on to help you achieve a better sale price and quicker sale. Sometimes it doesn’t take much and you will find my many years of experience to be invaluable. When we live in a home for a few years, we become blind to things that could be off-putting to a buyer. Part of my job is to point out those things and help you present your home in the best possible light. Another strength I provide is a custom three pronged approach to arriving at the best possible sale price. I have developed this over the years and find it to be very accurate. Please feel free to call and chat about marketing or any other question you may have! My direct cell # is 250-217-4600.

Most of my business comes from referrals from past clients. I trust this will be the case with you also as we work together to achieve your goals.

We have engaged Lorne for two real estate transactions in the past 5 years and have been happy with his professional service. He is well informed on the market and market trends. He provided us with recommendations for professional services to help us in the sale of our rental property. He is very responsive to all our questions. - Karla & Michael Young

Lorne is professional and experienced. We felt no pressure from him whatsoever, from the time of getting to know each other to acceptance of the offer. He listed our place on Oct 26 and there was a confirmation of acceptance on Oct 28, above the list price. In this real estate jungle, you need someone with his negotiation skills on your side. - PC Leong

Lorne's guidance on when to list, when to allow offers to be submitted, a reasonable price to accept, and his market analysis were great. He made helpful suggestions regarding minor cosmetic changes/staging, and was able to achieve the sale price and the terms/conditions I wanted. His vast experience and knowledge of the local market (style/etiquette etc.) and the real estate business in general was evident and very helpful during the selling process. His style was flexible and helpful and he struck a great balance between providing information and giving time and space to also do our own research. This was especially helpful during our decision-making processes. The other thing that I really appreciated was that the information he provided was always helpful and never superfluous. - S.Reynolds

Lorne helped us navigate a very hectic and fast-moving market. He was incredibly responsive and got is into a lot of viewings in a short period of time and in various areas throughout the CRD. Along the way he always provided helpful advice and in a number of cases, options and information we hadn't considered. We never felt pressured to make a decision and for the house we bought, he was able to arrange a pre-inspection with very short notice and guide us through the negotiating process. We're very happy with the house we found and are thankful for all of Lorne's help. - Ryan Reynolds

Lorne's CMA was very accurate and his listing price and expected time on the market were also very accurate. I got the price I wanted for my townhouse. His level of responsiveness, knowledge, and communication style were superb. He also really helped me get the completion/possession dates I needed as we were also selling my partner's condo and buying a house. - Ryan Reynolds

Lorne Tuplin did a great job in a tough market. There were a lot of condos on the market and he got ours sold. He Got some of his own clients sent to view our condo through other realtors. He was very professional and helped us through the selling and then the buying of a new place. His advice was very appreciated as he has lots of experience. We have told our friends about him so that they can have a great realtor. I hope they take our advice. - Marvin + Melba Fast

I could not have asked for a more helpful and knowledgeable realtor than Lorne! He went above and beyond to find us the perfect house and then helped us make the most competitive offer possible that helped us secure the place against the other competing bids with his expertise. Not only that but he has a keen eye for noticing potential problems and a handy knowledge of all the best local companies to help with anything he can’t. - Brendan Cole Domoney

“If you are looking for an experienced, honest, dedicated, hard-working real estate agent to assist you in your home search and purchase in the greater Victoria area, (and really, who isn’t) then you cannot do better than Lorne Tuplin. Lorne recently guided my wife and I through the process of purchasing a new home and we were extremely satisfied with Lorne’s services. We were on a tight schedule and we live in the lower mainland so coordinating viewings and negotiations was challenging. Lorne did an excellent job finding out what our needs were first, so he didn’t waste our time showing us houses that wouldn’t work for us. Also he listened very well and knew when to offer advice and when to let us think on our own. After two trips to the island we had found our new home and completed the negotiations. Lorne didn’t stop there though, after the agreement was signed he continued to work with us to make sure the deal went through smoothly and that all of our interests were looked after. Finally he came to visit at our new home to bring us a thoughtful gift and to make sure everything had gone well, which I’m pleased to say it had, thanks to Lorne!” - Richard Taylor

We had 3 agents price out our home for sale. The first agent said "I can get you $720,000", the second agent said "Let's start at low $700,000 and see if we can get a bidding war" and the last agent was Lorne, who said "You have a fantastic yard and garden. This increases the home value significantly and I can sell it to a garden lover for $820,000". We were so happy that Lorne saw the value in our garden that we have put so much love into. And guess what? He did sell it for exactly $820,000. Thanks so much Lorne! We also appreciated your super positive attitude and your recommendations for all the other contacts needed to complete the sale. - Rosalyn Van Dyk

Lorne Tuplin was referred to us by friends when we first started thinking about buying a home. We were first time home buyers and weren’t really sure what we wanted in a house or where we wanted to look. Lorne was incredibly patient and took our lead, providing assistance in explaining the process, making suggestions, and keeping us up to date with the real estate market. When we were finally ready to get serious - there was no delay, Lorne met with us right away. It was clear that he listened to us and knew what was important to us. He didn’t waste our time and he was incredibly flexible when our meetings and viewings often included our kids. We never felt pressured or rushed, we knew that he was there for us and not just to “make a deal”. When the time came to put the offer on our house, he was efficient and fair and advocated for us. His attention to detail and willingness to help did not go unnoticed and he really went above and beyond to ensure we were well cared for. He was present for every walk through and every inspection and answered our countless questions quickly and without hesitation. We would not hesitate to recommend Lorne when buying or selling your home. We cannot adequately express our gratitude for his kindness, knowledge, professionalism and humour throughout this process. - Sandra & James

Exceptional, professional, and client-centred! I can't say enough about Lorne Tuplin. He was attentive to all our buying and relocation needs. When I first contacted him over two years ago with an expression of interest to move to Victoria, he quickly established search criteria for a suitable home and consistently kept me updated over several months. When we finally moved to search for a house, he immediately made himself available and addressed all our inquiries. Thanks to Lorne, we quickly found the perfect home and he has continued to facilitate our re-location through information about the community and services. Lorne consistently provided outstanding service and went well beyond the call of duty. He is the best! - Marian Harymann
