Why refer Ryan:
Ryan has been very accessible throughout this process. He was well prepared for customers from out of town and ensured that we maximized our short window to facilitate a purchase.
My wife and I were transferring to the Comox Valley from a community in Northern BC. We had not spent much time in the Comox Valley and had a limited knowledge of the housing market prior to our move. Adding to the stress of the short purchase window available to us was the fact that this was our first move with a young child. Ryan guided us through the process right from the start. He ensured we were well prepared prior to our arrival. During our house purchase trip Ryan made himself available both pre and post purchase. Ryan was always straight forward and honest with any questions we had and with any advice we sought from him. I would strongly recommend anyone who is moving to the Comox Valley to consider using Ryan.
In the fall of 2015, we hired Ryan Williams to market and sell our family’s chalet on Mount Washington. From the beginning, he was professional and honest with his assessment of the market and the price needed to sell the property. His knowledge and expertise of the mountain real estate market instilled confidence that we would finally sell it after six years of being listed with another agent.
Once listed, he took time to market it with quality photos and a video that included important information that we provided to him. During the listing period, Ryan showed the property more than anyone else and to different buyers and it was his efforts who found us the buyer. We received two offers at the same time and he showed his professionalism once again as he dealt with the multiple offers and Limited Dual Agency situation. An offer was accepted, the subject conditions were lifted in a satisfactory amount of time and we are happy to have sold our home to a good family.
Our family is very grateful for the efforts of Ryan Williams and his team and we highly recommend him for real estate services on Mount Washington. It was nice to have another option for a successful sale of a Mount Washington property.
Why refer Ryan:
Ryan worked very hard for us and made things happen quick when needed; very knowledgable; very easy to get a hold of
Ryan was referred to us by a co-worker and from our first meeting with him we felt very comfortable. Coming from a different part of BC we were not very familiar with the area but Ryan was very helpful in showing us around. We had specific things we were looking for in a home and Ryan was very quick at understanding our needs and figuring out what we were looking for. We had a very tight deadline and he was able to line up a lot of viewings in the short time we had. Also, he was able to effectively provide us with video tour of few houses when we could not view the house with him. After finding our house, a few issues needed to be dealt with quickly after the inspection and Ryan stepped into action making things happen quickly and effectively to close the deal. Ryan and his team are very professional and we will 100 % refer them to anyone we know looking for a house in the area.

Executive Home Sale:
Our first meeting with Ryan was as the listing agent for both a house and a lot that we were interested in. When we decided to purchase the lot we were confident in Ryan to act for us as the buyer, as well as for the owner. Ryan was respectful and professional in representing both clients throughout that process. Ryan maintained contact with us between the time we bought our lot and when we finally decided to sell our rural property. We were pleased with how the buying process had gone, and we chose Ryan to sell our home. Ryan did his homework and met us with information on recent sales in the category of our home, showed what was currently for sale, what had sold and for what price.
In all Ryan’s dealings with us, his honesty and sincerity stood out. He has a calm and low-key manner along with a gentle sense of humour. He showed an interest in who we were and what we wanted, while developing a relationship by sharing a bit about himself and his family.
Ryan works with a well-known agency (RE/MAX) and has connections with other realtors. He worked with us to make our home stand out in the market, sharing information about what buyers in our particular price range were looking for and would expect. He has information about house stagers, contractors, etc. if needed – but shared this with no pressure. Once we were ready to put our home on the market, Ryan arranged for professional photos, drafted a colour brochure highlighting the features of our particular property, and prepared an ‘in house’ information package for prospective buyers to look. Ryan was open to revisions and welcomed the addition of our own ‘walk around’ video.
He organized an ‘Agents Tour’ but respected our wishes to have only serious clients tour our home. Our property was highlighted on his website and in the local paper, and his listings are connected to MLS as well as other home buying sites. We were pleased with Ryan’s communication and feedback. He was able to guide us through the process from his experience in the business, but was flexible and willing to listen to what we as the home owners wanted to do.
It was a pleasure to work with Ryan. He has an assertive yet polite attitude, and showed a quiet, steady confidence. He did what he said he would do. Ryan guided us in a respectful way throughout the negotiating process and never gave us the impression that we had to make quick decisions. Ryan offered sensible advice and was a level-headed, calming influence at a potentially stressful time. Our house sold very quickly. Thanks Ryan!
You were a pleasure to work with. We know going into the Mount Washington real estate market would be challenging but you came through. We appreciate the process and back & forth negotiation required to put together a successful contract. We will recommend you to our friends & would definitely use your services in the future.
Ryan was helpful and did not pressure us at all throughout the process of buying our (first) home. He really wanted us to find the best house suited to our needs and budget. I already recommended Ryan to a friend.
Thank you for your wonderful service. It made the transition from Parksville to Courtenay very smooth.
Ryan is a true professional! His knowledge and interpretation of market trends ensured a positive sale of our home. The whole process of selling one’s home can be filled with tension and anxiety but not with Ryan. His assurance and practical encouragement made our experience great and we would recommend Ryan to all our friends.
We were very impressed with the service we received from Ryan. We met and discussed our plans with Ryan and the very next day he showed us 8 homes; and they all met the criteria we had requested! That very day we found the home we fell in love with. His follow up was great as well – within a week of first seeing the home, we made an offer which was accepted. We will definitely recommend Ryan to any of our family/friends or associates looking to buy (or sell) in the Comox Valley.
We just wanted to express how grateful we are for you patience with us. You have shown us many properties and although we haven’t found the investment we are looking for, you continue to work with us. We are really excited to start investing in real estate, but its been hard finding properties that suit our budget – in both time and money.
We are writing to commend you (Ryan) on your help in selling our Mt. Washington condo. We recognize that properties on the hill are geared to a small percentage of the population, making it a market where sales are few relative to the amount of listings in town. We believe your comprehensive service in incorporating personal style, contacts, knowledge of the area and format of listings both electronically and in print lead to our sale in a timely fashion. We have already recommended you to others.
Many thanks, keep up the good work.
Ryan displayed excellent patience and intuition during the process of buying a new home. The result – I am very happy with my purchase and felt Ryan represented my interests in the negotiations very well.
“Ryan is polite, courteous and re-assuring in his manner. He has a quiet confidence when negotiating on behalf of his clients. He has large knowledge base on real estate. He has a good website and newsletter. We also like how he supports community through sport and financial donations.”
Last year, (April 2012), we bought our first house and we had the great pleasure to work with Ryan. As first time home buyers, we couldn’t have wished for someone more comprehensive, professional, reliable, efficient, courteous and patient than Ryan Williams. We had many, many questions and didn’t know anything about the housing market, but thankfully Ryan was there! Always available to answer our questions and providing us with great advice. Right away Ryan understood what we were looking for and every houses he showed us respected our budget and preferences. Ryan really found the perfect fit for us! A thing that we were not expecting is that even after the purchase, Ryan is still around, making sure we are settling well and still answering our questions. Wow that is good customer service!
We are more than satisfied with the services Ryan provided us. We knew that Ryan was working with us and for us, not for his own interest. We wouldn’t hesitate one second to recommend Ryan Williams and his team to anyone we know who’s wanting to buy in the Comox Valley.
Merci! Thank you!
We would like to take the opportunity to thank you for all of your help with purchasing our home when we relocated to the Comox Valley last July (2011). This was our third time using the services of a real estate agent and this has been far our best experience. While our first two experiences started out well, both times the customer service quickly deteriorated.
As you may recall we only had one week to choose a home for our family. It was a very stressful time for us but you made it a lot more bearable. You willingly made yourself available to us despite our tight schedule. You were always very patient, courteous and accommodating in your dealings with us. Our many questions were always answered promptly and efficiently. You demonstrated a comprehensive knowledge of the housing market and you seemed to have a really good sense of the type of home we were looking for. Most of all, we can’t stress enough how much we appreciated your honesty, integrity and genuine interest in our needs. You made us feel as though you really cared about helping us find the perfect home and neighbourhood for our growing family.
We were so pleased to see that your excellent customer service extends well beyond the completion of the sale. You have checked in with us many times since our move last year to ensure we are settling into our new home. We have also enjoyed the invitiations to your customer appreciation events. You obviously take a genuine interest in your clients and their families.
You have demonstrated that you and your family really care about the community. We are thrilled to see that you sponsor a variety of organizatiions, including the soccer league our kids participate in.
We recall you saying that the biggest compliment you receive from your clients is future referrals. We will definitely recommend your services to anyone buying or selling a home in the Comox Valley.
Ryan was a great realtor to work with. His demeanor is extremely approachable, he provides valuable and honest opinions, and he works hard to ensure the satisfaction of his clients. Ryan’s knowledge of the Comox Valley and the real estate industry ensures the best service for buyers and sellers. His professional team and office crew help create a welcoming approach to the wacky world of real estate.
We would not hesitate to recommend Ryan to anyone.
A stand-up job from a stand-up team!
We called you to both sell and buy a home here in the Comox Valley as a DND relocation. You immediately paid for someone to stage our home, and ensured excellent customer service throughout our selling and buying process for both homes. You also continually send us news letters and annual invitations to customer appreciation events. My wife and I have bought and sold many homes in most provinces across the country, only to find that at the end of the day most realtors have only had there own interests at heart.
Client referrals are something that realtors depend on, both my wife and I would definitely recommend you to anyone buying or selling a home in the Comox Valley. Your attention to detail and unwavering commitment to look after our best interests can be hard to find. You are patient, courteous and always willing to deal with hard schedules, and time lines.
Your excellent customer service extends well beyond the completion of the sale. You have checked in with us many times since our move to ensure we are settling into our new home. You also manage your time in order to sponsor a variety of organizations, including the soccer league that young children participate in.
If anyone out there is looking for the right realtor, make sure you get the right person for the job the first time around. Ryan is your man.
We relocated from Italy to the Comox Valley in 2012. As with most DND House Hunting Trips, we only had one week to find and purchase a house – Ryan was instrumental in making this possible. Ryan provided us with exceptional customer service during a most stressful time. Although we were overseas, we were able to communicate frequently through email before arriving and Ryan sent us custom lists of houses that met our specific requirements. Once we arrived in the Comox Valley, Ryan made himself available to us and we were able to view several homes of interest. His knowledge of the various neighbourhoods in the Valley certainly helped us narrow down the locations to look in. Despite our tight timeline, Ryan never made us feel pressured to make a decision. Fortunately, with Ryan’s help, we were able to negotiate the house and price that worked for our family.
Ryan has a passion for his chosen profession – follow-up visits, newsletters and organized client activity days demonstrate his dedication to client relationships, their families and a genuine interest in community relations. In addition to knowing the realty world, Ryan also understands the Brookfield process and attends to the needs of DND families. His team business approach with Jasmen and Chris, allowed for prompt and thorough replies to our inquiries and requests for information.
It would be fair to say that one year later, we couldn’t be happier with our choice of realtor, the house we purchased and the neighbourhood we live in. We would gladly recommend Ryan Williams and his team to anyone moving to the Comox Valley.
– Here is our story! It was with a heavy heart that we were posted from Comox with the military, but we knew the adventure would be worth it. Our home had been for sale for several months and we were at the minimum price we could drop to for the sale, without having to owe money to the bank on closing. Our situation was desperate! Then our Realtor left for her posting as well. We didn’t waste any more time, and we asked a friend to refer us to a realtor who could move our home on to it’s next loving owner. They said that Ryan Williams and his team could get the job done, and they were right! Although it took a few more months than expected, Ryan and his team worked tirelessly at finding the right buyers! Come the closing date, we were elated to have the home sold, and know that the Williams team had done everything right! We would recommend their up right, straight forward style of business to anyone who wanted a no nonsense transaction. From start to finish they dealt with us with respect, honesty and integrity. They handled my questions and concerns with the type of attitude befitting the highest standards of regard. In-spite of the frustration that my wife and I were expressing and experiencing due to holding an extra mortgage, and having to sell over a great distance (we had already moved to our Ontario posting), the Williams team surpassed all expectations, and have certainly earned our gratitude for a job well done. Thank-you, Thank-you, Thank-you! –
“Working with you and having you take the time to get to know us, has once again made our trip very worthwhile, relaxed and efficient as always.”
“Very professional, very thorough!”
“Very concientious and amiable personality. Went out of his way to accommodate us.”
“Thank you so much, Ryan. We are very happy with our purchase. You were extremely flexible, patient, helpful and kind. We look forward to keeping in contact with you and would definitely refer a friend to your services.”
“Thank you for helping us along the way. I was amazed how quick you would show me houses. I felt supported and thought I was in good hands. We also appreciated your help after we were in our new home.”
“Ryan went above and beyond at all stages – from the initial search to the closing.”
“My grandparents want to thank you for all your assistance; especially during the long process while [grandma] was in Chile. Thank you for being a human being prior to being a sales person. Thank you for all your help.”
“Ryan was friendly and easygoing. We felt he was very open, honest and trustworthy. Ryan got the job done efficiently and we had complete confidence in his abilities. We would recommend Ryan as a realtor for anyone else.”
“Ryan was extremely pleasant to work with. He went out of his way to help us get what we want. He offered to help in ways beyond the “call of duty.” It was a pleasure to meet him and work with him.”
…time was not wasted and we had an enjoyable day dealing with a professional, hard working gentleman with a great sense of humour.
“We met Ryan and told him of our long term plan to relocate. For over 1 1/2 years, Ryan sent us pertinent information on a regular basis. Others promised to do that, but they did not. Once we were in the Comox area, Ryan spent a great deal of his time assisting us, at unusual hours sometimes, with little encouragement of success with difficult clients (us). RE/MAX is privelaged to have such a dedicated gentleman.”
