The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers in the Comox Valley. Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my sincere and honest approach has earned me many friends. I think that's the best part of the job.


Rene & Laurel Addicott - 1st Time Home Buyers - Campbell River

"We had the pleasure of working with Corey in the fall of 2018, to secure the purchase of our first home (Feb 2019). Being first time home buyers, this presented its own set of challenges for us however Corey was easily able to make all the moving parts of the process flow with ease, and confidently provided some much needed guidance. Corey’s communication skills are on point. He rapidly returns phone calls, texts, and when needed…easily provides clarification with regards to contracts and the insane amount of administration that comes with buying a home. Corey brings his own skills & experiences with renovations/upgrades to the table when it comes to the selection process involved with buying a home.

As you would hope and expect from your realtor, he was able to steer us away from homes that we considered “good to go”, but in reality… the place was a train wreck. Having someone help point out deficiencies in a potential home as they relate to construction, upgrades, shotty plumbing, electrical and the consequences of purchasing with emotion…spoke volumes to us. Corey really did have our best interests in mind and because of that, we looked at a wide range of places both in Comox and Campbell River in a relatively short amount of time. He was always on time and also had his own list of potential homes to view, in case we exhausted our list.

I definitely recommend Corey, no question."

Cori Lee & Jay Clarion - Military Buyer - Cumberland

"Corey was recommended to me by a good friend who has many ties to the community and is one of the most genuine people I know who truly wants to help people. I can’t find strong enough words to recommend him - he went above and beyond in every single aspect of our search and purchase. I was a first time home buyer with a spouse deployed overseas, and Corey put my mind at ease by thoroughly checking every place we looked at and promptly addressed any concerns or questions I had. He always made time for me and my spouse despite both of us having irregular and busy schedules. I could not be happier working with Corey. He is extremely knowledgeable in knowing what to look out for with no pressure - just endless knowledge and support. Thank you Corey, we will always be grateful for your help and would not hesitate to recommend you to our friends as we already have!"

Brianne Clare - Return Client - Comox

"Corey is phenomenal to work with, he listens to what you are looking for and respects your budget. I have now bought two homes through him. I will continue to refer him to my family and friends as I know they will be in good hands with an honest realtor who genuinely cares. You rock, Corey!"

Kris TeWinkel - 1st Time Home Buyer - Courtenay

"Got in touch with him on a recommendation from a friend for our first time buying a home, very professional and skilled realtor I would recommend to anyone new or experienced. Gave us all the info we needed and more with anything we asked, definitely a realtor we will go back to."

Rod Carroll - Military Buyer - Courtenay

"As a newly posted in member to 19 Wing I used Corey back in 2012 to search for my house. He is a dedicated realtor that will not stop till he finds the perfect house for you to be able to call it a home. With his knowledge he knows the in's and outs of the Comox Valley's market. He has the experience to allow him to see issues in a place. When he does he has no problem being upfront and honest even if you have your heart set on a place. I would recommend him to everyone."

Kyle & Katrina Van Kleek - First Time Home Buyers - Comox

"Corey was super helpful with my wife and I as first time home buyers. He was very knowledgeable with the places and areas he showed us in the Comox Valley. He was really flexible with meeting us and helped us through the whole process. When we sell our place in the future we will definitely use Corey again! 10/10 great realtor."

Dustin & Tina Francis - Military Seller - Comox

"We were stationed to 19 Wing Comox from 2012-2015. Corey listed our house when we left the Comox Valley in 2015. We met Corey through his wife Tara, who we used for family portraits every year (she’s phenomenal). When we went with Corey for listing our house, he was a very professional and dedicated real estate agent. He held several Open Houses at our home to garner attention with potential buyers and fellow realtors. He always kept us in the loop on how active the market was, and advise us accordingly. We were able to sell our home quickly and at a price very close to our asking, because of Corey’s knowledge of real estate in the Comox Valley and Vancouver Island. My family and I were able to pack our home and move to Newfoundland on schedule and budget without any stress from the housing market, because of Corey’s expertise. Thank you, Corey!"
