Some words from our clients
Some words from our clients
Chris made us feel like we were his only clients, he always responded to us immediately. Even if he couldn’t answer our question right away, he always acknowledged it and told us he’d look into it and let us know. He was so knowledgeable and supportive, absolutely the best professional we dealt with through the whole buying process
Chris Gill and his team worked very hard for us and made selling easy . I also appreciated Chris’s extensive market knowledge which allowed us to fetch top dollar.
I liked the ease of notifications for showings, the online feedback portal, the prompt and friendly communications from my agent and all the support team, and I liked that everyone seemed organized in terms of paperwork and dates.
The Condo Group does not just provide outstanding service and expertise for those buying and selling condos – they were absolutely amazing at helping me sell my house, too! Chris Gill went above and beyond and took care of every detail from the moment I decided to list. He was remarkably patient in responding to all my questions and concerns, as well as making time to work around my busy work and mama schedule. The house sold two days after it was listed, and Chris continued to be supportive at every step after that until it closed earlier this month. Shout out to Tony Zarsadias too – both of these guys were incredible at not just taking care of all the details of the house sale but also of me – they regularly checked in to see how things were going in the mix of emotions that comes along with selling a house. Thank you, Chris and Tony – and the rest of the team at The Condo Group (especially Amy!) for EVERYTHING! I’d recommend checking them out for any of your real estate needs.
It was great to know that there was a team working behind the scenes to help me sell and buy. Mike Pearce was great, and helped me to navigate a challenging purchase.
Kevin Jones was fantastic. He called me immediately when the condo that I liked was available. The Condo Group is definitely the way to go.
My realtor was Rodney Henderson, who was very professional and full of information. I was extremely impressed with The Condo Group. They used every angle of marketing to their advantage and didn’t miss a beat. They have a huge online presence and following. Teamwork and communication were constant, and I always knew what was going on.
You made the process of selling my condo so easy and seamless and I really appreciate your stellar help. I may be biased but you guys truly are the best in the biz!
Kevin Jones was a fantastic agent. He was friendly and helpful and listened to what I was looking for. He was knowledgeable about condos and stratas, which was a new experience for me.
Both Rodney and Andrew helped us with our purchase. They were always quick to respond with any questions or concerns we had and made the transaction as smooth as possible. Extremely happy with them both.
We just wanted to thank you, Mike, and the rest of the team at The Condo group once again for your very impressive service in the promotion and sale of our condo in Brentwood Bay. It was a seamless process with excellent communication, planning and prompt feedback to us and within your organization.
Your calm approach, professionalism and knowledge about real estate and marketing are strong assets in making your clients feel well taken care of. The degree of detail that the office handles certainly minimizes the stress for the client.
We are both happy to provide a very strong recommendation to future clientele based on our experience with The Condo Group.

Andrew offered insightful information regarding current trends in real estate. He felt more like a consultant than a salesperson.
I especially appreciated Andrew’s personal yet professional demeanour. He is well spoken and articulate when explaining real estate transactions, and he complements that with a great sense of humour. Also, the office staff at The Condo Group were always organized and efficient.
Rodney Henderson & The Condo Group had amazing communication skills and always kept in the loop and were available to answer any questions. They made my first home buying experience easy to understand with no pressure or intimidation. I could not have asked for a better experience! I am beyond excited to call The Railyards my new home and would recommend Rodney to anyone looking to buy in Victoria. The entire process was informative, enjoyable, and exciting; wouldn’t have done it any other way. Thanks Team!
In August of 2014, I contacted The Condo Group when looking for a place to buy in Victoria. The agent assigned to help me in my search was Mike Janes, who provided to be a true professional; never pressuring any decisions, always responsive to numerous inquiries and very knowledgable about the market. I did not feel ready to transition to the West at that time, but Mr. Janes kept me informed of available properties throughout 2015 when I returned to Victoria. Again, he was extremely helpful and patient, making the process pleasant and stress free.
I am happy to say that I am now the owner of a condo which is the right fit. I would highly recommend The Condo Group for any real estate needs.
Mike’s responses to any enquiry were instant. He never gave up the mission to find our sons first home in BC. It wasn’t his biggest Condo Sale by far, that didn’t seem to matter, we got VIP treatment from beginning to end. Mike Janes and the team at The Condo Group are AMAZING. Thank you so much.
Mike was patient and worked with me even though a move to Victoria wasn’t certain. Once we started the ball rolling with the unit I wanted at The Railyards, he was amazing to communicate with and I always felt he was looking after me.
We liked working with someone who was so knowledgeable about condos. Mike Janes was very easy going in his approach. As out-of-country purchasers, we feel he went the extra mile to make sure things went as smoothly as possible for us. His assistant Kaley was also great.
A big THANK YOU to Mike Pearce, Chris Gill & The Condo Group team for selling our Victoria townhouse only one day on the market and for almost full asking price! If you are looking for a strong real estate team in Victoria I would highly recommend The Condo Group.
Thanks Andrew; you are such a helpful person indeed. I’ve worked with many realtors over the years and honestly you are the calmest and best informed realtor I’ve ever worked with.
You were able to find us the best condo we could possibly afford, in a short period of time, without seeing a lot of places. You already realized what our needs were.
Thank you again Andrew!
M. & D. LINCE
Fantastic service and the best knowledge/experience in the Victoria condo segment. If you’re thinking of buying or selling a condo, you’d be silly to go through anyone else.
Very responsive, honest and helpful. The support staff were awesome.
I have worked with The Condo Group on a number of projects and have always found them to be very professional and knowledgeable about the condo market.
Rodney Henderson provided good and timely advice throughout the selling and purchasing process. He and his team helped us get a great sale price on our condo, and then helped us to find a gem of a home. Rodney endeared himself to our young son which made our time together extra fun.

My real estate adventure started when I got dreamy eyes for the new development at The Railyards – as a new first-time homeowner, the learning curve was steep.
As soon as I met Mike Janes, my nervous feelings drifted away. I knew that I was in good hands and that I was working with someone who truly had my best interests in mind. Mike was responsive, caring, and most importantly, very honest. I could tell that his main priority was to find a condo that worked well for me and never felt pressured to rush into anything. He did his due diligence and found out pertinent information to ensure that I had a well-rounded, wide-eyed view of the properties I was seeing.
Mike brought a lot of knowledge to the table and he also brought a lot of fun. After I found the perfect place for me, Mike provided guidance through each step of the purchase process and made sure that I was comfortably moved into my space. In my opinion, he went above and beyond.
Mike is a gem of a realtor and has earned a raging fan. I would, and will, recommend him to any of my friends or family members who are looking to find a great place to purchase in Victoria.
I couldn’t ask for a better realtor than Chris Gill. He made things happen on the hour, and after hours. He made my dreams come true with my new condo, and at the end, I gained a new friend.
Chris, I can’t thank you enough for your services. You and your team displayed excellence and kindness from beginning to end. I will definitely be recommending The Condo Group for years to come.
We recently purchased a new home with Mike Janes and were extremely impressed with his professionalism, attention to detail, and forthright concern for our best interests. We felt that Mike was committed to finding the best home for us, not just the first one that met our requirements. He took us through the purchase process carefully and skillfully, ensuring that all our questions were answered, and any reservations were resolved before finalizing the process. We wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone looking to buy, and, if the time comes for us to sell, we will absolutely look to him for assistance with that process as well.
Mike Pearce and The Condo Group made my downsizing effort quick, easy and very beneficial. Mike is very much in touch with the market. He had motivated contacts that were wanting to buy and sell in the very product that I was buying and selling. Our closing was effortless, and did I mention, quick? We must have set a record time for my listing, showing and accepted offer on both selling my unit and purchasing another. Well done and extremely professional.
Just wanted to drop you a quick note and say how much we enjoyed working with you. Thank you for the professional, friendly service and great result.
Over the past thirty years I have bought and sold homes in Victoria with various realtors, but this was the first time I have used Mike Janes and the Condo Group, and I can now say I am a loyal customer. The service provided by Mike and his team was professional, timely and honest. As an out of town owner, their use of technology to process documents and keep me up to speed was especially appreciated. Marketing of my property was targeted and generated a lot of showings, follow up was thorough and accurate and best of all, the final transaction was trouble free thanks to Mike’s perseverance. I will most definitely use Mike Janes and the Condo Group again
Thanks so much Chris! You’ve made this whole process so seamless & so easy, it was a great experience!
HUGE thank you to Chris Gill and his amazing, efficient and professional team at The Condo Group for not only selling our condo in an hour, but for also finding us the perfect house in one week during a crazy paced market! This was a very overwhelming process for me, and they held our hands, working day and night, to make this dream of ours happen. We are forever grateful for all you have done for us!
We recently listed our rental property with The Condo Group. Tony and his team were extremely efficient and professional with helping us set the price, market the property and make the sale of our house. As a result we sold quickly and very near to our asking price. We would highly recommend them!
Thank you so much, what a great job & a great team! Kudos, I’m a happy customer. You were organized, polite, accommodating, motivating & effective.
We believe in using the best of the best and have unconditional confidence in Andrew and The Condo Group and will gladly give your name to anyone interested in selling their condo.
H & C
We listed our house with Chris Gill and the Condo Group in March 2015. The results speak for themselves. They sold our property in less than 24 hours for 20K over asking. It was a dream scenario.
Chris personally took on the task of hyping and marketing our property not only to the public but also to an elite group of realtors prior to our house hitting the MLS. It is without a doubt that this tactic generated the buzz and hype needed to provide this kind of result.
Equally impressive is the work of Amy Francoeur, The Condo Group office manager. She was incredibly responsive with any task we asked of her. Anytime we reached out, regardless of the format of communication or how trivial the matter was, we received responses within minutes. MINUTES!
That really is the difference. With the Condo Group you get the whole team working for you. They are completely systematic yet have not lost their soul along the way.
The cherry on top is the technology they provide you with to track comparable listings, sales and showing feedback. It was easy to use and kept us connected as to what was happening with our property.
We refer them in the highest regard and will undoubtedly have all of our future business.

I truly appreciated your assistance and will recommend you to my friends and associates!
Being both a resident and local investor, Andrew has helped me with several real estate transactions over the last three years. I am impressed with both his breadth and depth of knowledge in real estate. He is up to the second with any changes in the local market. Not only has Andrew found me some great properties, but he has also steered me away from what I thought were great investments, with knowledge only an experienced realtor would have, saving me thousands. I would not hesitate to use Andrew for my next real estate transaction.
I love my condo. The building is well maintained and surprisingly quiet. It’s convenient to everything and there’s a dock just a few steps up the street. There’s a nice sense of community in the Railyards as well.
The purchase of the condo was one of the best things I have done for myself.
Thank you for all your help and guidance, Andrew.
Three weeks ago I went to Tony Zarsadias and Chris Gill and said I wanted to buy a condo and I wanted it quick! Within a day, they set me up with a great mortgage broker and I was pre-approved. Chris and Tony met with me the next day to ask what I was looking for. Two days after that I was looking at places, and I ended up buying the first one I looked at. For what I was looking for, it was/is perfect. Jessica in the office kept everything flowing when the boys couldn’t and within two weeks, I had possession.
The Condo Group hammered it out of the park and I am stoked to be in my new 2 bedroom condo downtown in Victoria. Thanks a lot for all your hard work. Love my new place!
Just wanted to let you know that we very much appreciate your professionalism, knowledge, and pleasant manner. You made our recent purchase in Victoria enjoyable and the services and professionals you recommended during the due diligence and closing phases were very helpful as well. Thanks so much for the time you took with us and the assistance you provided in the purchase of our home.
Just a short note to thank you and your team for the excellent and highly professional services provided to me in selling my late mother’s condo. From the moment I made contact with you, I felt comfortable with the advice you were providing and confident that I had chosen the right Realtor. As I was from out of province, I was not familiar with the specific real estate market – your expertise and detailed knowledge pertaining to the condo market in Victoria was enormously helpful, practical and valued. I was also very impressed with the system that The Condo Group has put in place for notifying clients about showings and for providing feedback following showings. Despite the fact that I was far away, I felt as if I was being kept informed at all times. When an offer was made, you helped me through that difficult process in a very effective manner, both by phone and by email. I am most appreciative that the electronic means were available to handle all of the documents from a distance. The happy end result was a sale that satisfied all of my family, which was of paramount importance to me as Executrix of the estate. I really appreciate your sensitivity to the situation. I would cheerfully recommend you to anyone having a condo to sell in Greater Victoria.
Thanks again for all of your help and that of your very fine team.
Jason and I selected Graham Bavington as our realtor because of many years of friendship. But we ended up working with more than just Graham and we loved everyone on the team. Chris Gill came to all meetings and Graham and Chris took turns negotiating. Amy Francoeur did a great job booking appointments. We really appreciated all the help and support during the process. The team did a great job helping us step by step and we were very happy with the success of selling our home and getting into our beautiful new one. I would highly recommend this team for any real estate venture!
DEBBIE & JASON WALASEK
From beginning to end, Mike P. and his team at the Condo Group continuously went above and beyond with ensuring that our needs were met! Finding the perfect condo is a hard task for all, but with the determination and careful consideration Mike P. provided to us, the entire process allowed for a stress free search! We will continue to highly recommend The Condo Group for years to come!!
TR & JR
As a young condo hunter, I have appreciated the incredible patience, character, and dedication that Andrew has shared with me during my condo buying process. Andrew took the time to answer each question I threw at him, while also carefully explaining any other relevant aspects of the real estate process. Over the past few months, Andrew has shown his extraordinary commitment by being available with flexible appointment times, via text message, or through responding extremely promptly to emails. We had to negotiate many players through the purchase of my condo, including family and selective sellers, and Andrew displayed only professionalism, creativity, and persistence over the course of reaching an agreement. Through his hard work, we found the perfect condo and I adore it to bits. Andrew is exactly the kind of real estate agent that clients hope to find – honesty, integrity, patience, and humour are only a few of the courtesies that Andrew has extended my way. I will most definitely turn to Andrew with any future real estate purchases. Andrew – thank you again for everything.
Andrew restarted a set of negotiations that a previous realtor was unable to conclude. It was our desired property. His ability to close the deal to the satisfaction of both parties was impressive. The skill set and level of integrity he displayed is exactly what is needed in today’s real estate market. We have no hesitation in recommending Andrew to anyone looking for a top-notch realtor.
D & F
My wife and I were both thoroughly impressed with Andrew. As first time buyers, the whole process can seem a bit overwhelming. Andrew made it simple and explained everything fully in an easy to understand way. He didn’t try to rush us and made sure we understood the pros and cons of each property. He was always polite, friendly, and organized. We would easily recommend him to anyone looking to buy!
C & Y
A big thanks to you and your great team at The Condo Group for getting my place sold. You are so relaxed & great to work with. It seemed you knew exactly what to do when. Its interesting to see other condos in my building that were listed before I listed and they are still for sale, obviously I had the advantage.
When it comes to financial investments I’m a shrewd investor; for real estate, when push comes to shove, I’m glad Mike Pearce is in my corner.
I would highly recommend working with Tony Zarsadias. He was very professional and his knowledge of the condo market is second to none. He was able to provide us with excellent market evaluations and I must say he was very accurate. If we had of listened to his advice originally the property would have sold much quicker. We did end up selling the condo in Sidney for right around Tony’s original listing price request.
Mike recently sold our house in less than a week. He provided clear direction on what needed done to prepare the property for sale along with great advice on pricing the property correctly. Mike’s attention to detail, constant communication and the ability to calm any apprehension we had was second to none. We wouldn’t hesitate for a moment to recommend Mike as a choice for realtor.
MIKE & MAUREEN BRIGGS
My wife and I just purchased a condo in Oak Bay. Chris Gill was the best realtor to work with. We are from the states so we thought it was not going to be easy to purchase in Oak Bay without lots of stress. Chris Gill was there every minute to answer all our questions and help us through the whole procedure. He was willing to talk with us any time of day and made sure we had everything we needed to purchase our condo. Chris took the stress of buying out of country completely away for us. We so appreciative of all the work he did for us. We would recommend Chris to anyone interested in purchasing property in Victoria. His calmness and confidence will leave you knowing you are in the right hands.
JOHN & MARY ELLEN WARBRICK
We so appreciated Chris’ patience and dedication to finding us the “right” property. We fully trusted his judgement and couldn’t be happier with the outcome!
WAYNE & TERESA
My husband and I had very specific ideas for purchasing a new house, including: layout, size, and location. To make matters more difficult, we had a price point in line that was challenging to accomplish our buying goals. Andrew Hobbs was patient, offered great advice, and thankfully searched for what we wanted with us and without us. He saved us time and kept our goals in mind even when we were starting to waiver. Also, he was able to work around our very inflexible viewing schedule. We have now purchased a great house that matched everything that we were looking for. We would recommend Andrew to anyone and will use his services again.
JOYCE & KEN
Chris Gill, your entire team is amazing! Very professional and fully entrenched in using every aspect of selling available. I am completely thrilled with the end result given the tough current market. I can’t think of a single thing to suggest, everything was handled perfectly in every way. Thank you so very much!
This is my second experience working with The Condo Group and Tony Zarsadias, where in both instances the level of professionalism, condo knowledge, and overall client appreciation/support will keep this company at the top of my list and recommended to others!
Dear Rodney Henderson, I want to sincerely thank you for your efforts, patience, commitment, and hard work displayed throughout the entire process of purchasing my first home. I was really impressed with your level of knowledge with respect to the condo market, which enabled me to make informed decisions and gave me leverage in the bargaining process. As a result of your hard work, I feel fantastic in my new living space and optimistic about my investment. I would recommend your services to anyone purchasing a condo in the Victoria area.
Mike Janes is a complete professional. Always on time, and willing to answer any question I had at any moment during the entire process. As It was my first time buying a home I was in way over my head, Mike made it seem simple. I look forward to working with him and his team in the future.
