Dear Rick, Thank you for your hardwork with respect to the sale of our home on 607 Sarum Rise Way, Nanaimo B.C. We found you to be a very friendly and conscientious person. We were especially impressed with the way you thoroughly investigated important matters concerning the transaction of our home sale. You are a very reliable and responsible person. Wishing you all the best,

Chris Thompson

I thought that selling my home privately would save me money, and that the market as hot as it was, it would be easy, I was surely wrong. Rick I am so glad you called and didn't put any pressure on me to list. After interviewing a few top realtors from other companies, I felt you were different and you really cared. After taking our listing at a higher price than the other realtors quoted, you had an offer for us 12 days later, we knew you were right. You were in constant contact with us, and kept us up to date throughout the whole transaction.

Being new to B.C. from Ontario, we found Rick to be very Knowledgeable about the available real estate in Nanaimo. Rick went out of his way to accommodate our schedule when we arrived in Nanaimo and provided extensive information about the city. Rick exceeded our expectations every step of the way, we especially appreciated him contacting the welcome wagon on our behalf and putting us into contact with local notaries and insurance companies. We highly recommend Rick to anyone wanting to purchase in the Nanaimo area.

Kathy and Shirley

We had moved from a very large city, were very new to the community,knew nothing about Nanaimo, and were so very lucky to find Rick. He helped us, not only with the purchase of our first house but with an introduction to the warmth and honesty of Nanaimo! It is very clear to us that Rick strives for long term relationships with his clients. Rick, always professional, goes above and beyond every time. He has repeatedly proven that he can always be trusted, and true to his word.He is always ready to answer our questions, and provide us with resources, and contacts, Rick has consistently used his experience to help us find the best results, even when we weren't sure what we wanted.... We have bought three houses through him, and have been thrilled with the results he has achieved for us! He continues to extend genuine friendship, and follow -up to make certain our homes are working for us. Wonderful small town caring, and commitment right here!

Kim & Jimmy Sirois

We are so pleased with the way Rick took care of our real estate needs. We tried to sell out condo privately and after much aggravation gave up and listed it with Rick who not only sold our condo in a very timely matter, he even managed to get more than we were expecting. Rick also helped us find a suitable home with quick possession which was great as we were expecting our first child. Everything worked out perfectly. We have no hesitation in recommending Rick Horsland for all your real estate needs.

Ryan Madson

I have used Rick to buy & sell my last home and purchase my current house. The flyers and high definition photos Rick uses are very profesional and display the house very well. Rick kept me informed at all times about the buying and selling process. The paperwork and transactions were smooth and worry free. He took care of getting all the documents etc to my Laywer, so all i had to do was sign the final paper work. I recommend Rick to all my friends thinking of buying or selling a home.

Amy & Mark

My husband and I wanted to buy a retirement property in Nanaimo. I contacted several agents in Nanaimo but found Rick to be the most personable and by far the best listener as to our criteria. He was also the most prompt in emailing listings and in responding to messages. When we arrived in Nanaimo from Halifax to do the house search, we found Rick extremely knowledgeable about all areas of Nanaimo and the amenities available in each part of town. Rick not only facilitated every aspect of the closing with referrals to law firms, insurance companies and the best home inspector in town, he kept in contact well after the closing to assist us with details pertaining to the renting out of our new home. Thank you, Rick for everything! We are pleased to recommend your services to anyone interested in buying in Nanaimo.

Heinz and Ellen Lehman

After thirty-three years in the same place, finding a new home that would suit us was going to be a challenge. We both knew what we wanted, now we needed to find it, and would it be in our budget? Lucky for us, we had previously been in touch with Rick. He was sending us updates of his new listings that were coming into the market place. He had only an idea of what we wanted. Now, the hunt was on, as we had a tight time frame to find that property. We had pending commitments at home. We looked at some properties,, and gradually Rick got a better feel for what we were after. By the third day, Rick brought us to this new property at Seascape Terrace. I walked in, looked at the kitchen off to the left, granite countertops...yes!! Looked over, and there was that panoramic view they all talk about in this part of the world. Wonderful! Within three minutes, I knew this was the one. The next question to Rick was; what was the price again...? Yes, we can do that! Lucky, lucky, all I can say! Coming from the prairies, it means alot to see distance, and this property delivered just that! Thanks again Rick, we couldn't be more pleased with your service!
