“Nancy helped us buy our first family home from a distance. She was so helpful in explaining the market in Victoria to us and guiding us through the competitive offer process. What I especially appreciated was her honesty. She was very blunt about the issues and concerns we needed to be aware of and made sure to point out all the flaws in the homes we saw so we knew what we were getting into. She was incredibly thorough and responsive in her dealing with us, and managed the purchase with a lot of care, warmth and professionalism. We were really happy to have her as our agent.”-Martha & Gareth
“We had an amazing experience with Nancy when she stepped in to help us purchase our home in Langford. Nancy is very honest and keeps it very real - her goal is to make sure that you are going to be happy with your purchase and that there won't be any surprises. Purchasing a home from out of town was made easier by Nancy's professionalism and attention to detail. Thank you Nancy!”-H.Toti
Very thorough and being organized from the start of the listing process. The home staging was great and made the difference in selling my home in four days. She facilitated what I wanted at all times. I would recommend Nancy to friends and family.”
-Tom Vanhoutte, Application Support Specialist, Real Estate Board
“Nancy assisted me and my daughter with staging and pricing my home correctly…although, there were 2 almost identical units available in the townhouse complex, we were the only ones to complete a sale. It was a pleasure to work with her and she was always available to answer the many concerns that a Seller/Buyer can think of. I would highly recommend her for ALL of your real estate activities as she was great when I went to buy a home, too.”
-Don Rigby, Chartered Accountant
“I was surprised how easy she (Nancy) made the process for us. Our home sold quickly with her staging ideas and we got more money than we asked for. Highly recommend her to drop by before you sell.”
Rob & Rebecca Sturges, Medical Doctors, Retired
“Well, it wasn’t planned but we found ourselves moving and buying 3 times! Every time we chose to work with Nancy Ball hands down. She’s been nothing but reliable and one of the best communicators we’ve ever met! Even when we were coming from another province, she made every attempt to keep us up-to-date. Her proactive action plan made us feel very comfortable and she knows her stats! Great negotiator, too.”
-The Martin Family
When I first came into the home with Nancy’s suggestions, I said
“Wow, this looks good! I can do an open house here!”
We put it on the market and we got 3 offers! I am confident that happened with Nancy’s help and home staging tips! I will continue to use her services in the future.-Ian Jones, Realtor®
“Nancy provided excellent advice and super, detail-oriented service. She's a real joy to work with.”-Mona Foss
“Nancy was great to work with. While I looked at a few properties that looked great online but DEFINITELY not great in reality, she focused me in on the properties that she felt would really work for me and that also looked good in person. The result was a successful purchase without going through multiple offer situations. She really gets the job done. She is very professional, friendly and PATIENT. She REALLY knows the market here. Definitely she is my choice for any future home purchases!!”
“Nancy Ball is my Realtor® for life! She helped me in every way possible to get me the best home.”
-Trish Carter, Managing Director, Real Estate Board Charitable Foundation
“Thank you for connecting us with Nancy. She came by and gave us a lot of fabulous suggestions – including repositioning things and what accessories work in our home. I can’t believe how big the room looks now (even with the clutter going on!) She’s worth it!”
-Renae & Craig Hunter, Transportation Managers
“We’ve been through the selling process a few times and never before have we felt as though the realtor was working on our behalf and keeping our interests in mind. Working with Nancy has definitely been our best Realtor experience yet.”
-The Sawatzky Family
“Nancy showed professionalism when selling both of my kid’s homes. She finished off every detail of their purchases leaving no stone unturned. The most important thing she did in our eyes was her honesty and caring to ensure our kid’s purchases were unforgettable. We will use Nancy as a Realtor in a heartbeat if we ever decide to sell our home as her professionalism is something we really saw in her.”
-The Peters Family
“Nancy helped us with our move from Toronto to Vancouver Island. She was excellent at listening and identifying our needs. She quickly knew what would suit us best. She answered all of our questions and had a great sense of humour. She was patient, works hard and takes pride in putting her clients needs first and foremost. She was simply the best.”
-Glen & Carrie
John, just a short note to thank you for all your assistance with the sale and purchase of our new home. You definitely go the extra mile and live up to your reputation. We can’t thank you enough! You restored our faith in real estate professionals.
-P. & M. DeOliveira
John, I can’t tell you how impressed I was with the way you handled the sale of our house. It’s easy to see why you’re number 1. Thanks again.
Thank you, John, for the outstanding work you did in selling our home on West Coast Road. Your unique combination of impeccable professionalism with a very personal touch was much appreciated. We particularly admired your willingness to keep us informed every step of the way. We will have no hesitation whatever in recommending you to others should the occasion arise.
-P. & M. Jones
Frankly, John, I don’t think I have ever witnessed anyone so dedicated to their profession. You are at the top of your field, most deservedly, and I have to say that I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending you to anyone who wanted to sell their property. Because of your hard work you made my life easier, and for that I thank you (and my father does too).
John, thank you for all the effort you put into selling our house. You never cease to amaze me with how fast you managed to sell this house as well as my other homes. You are #1 in my book. When I am in the position to purchase another house, you will be the “one” realtor I will phone! Thank you so much.
John, thank you for the outstanding work you did for us with regards to our sale. Our association could not have been more professional or pleasant. Every aspect of the listing and sale went off without a hitch and thanks to your knowledge of the market we obtained a fair price within twenty-four hours of the unit being listed. You have our unqualified recommendation.
-B & J Darling
We could go on at length about how great a job John’s team did with our recent real estate sale and purchase. Whether it was the professionalism, marketing or incredible organization, everything about our experience was top notch. Thank you so much.
John, thank you so much for all your hard work and exceptional dedication to the sale of my mother’s property. Actually, congratulations are in place for your selling the property quickly, despite the fact that it was a challenging property in many respects! My mother and I really appreciate your exceptional professionalism, courtesy, guidance and swift handling of all affairs. We are extremely happy with how the sale of the property was handled. We will be certain to contact you for any future real estate needs and welcome any opportunities to refer others to you.
John, I wanted to tell you how much I appreciated your effort and professionalism in handling the sale of my property. One of the most important factors was that you kept me so informed and “up to date” on all the showings and transactions. Once again, thank you for everything, and I will certainly recommend you to others.
John, just a quick note to reiterate how grateful we are for the smooth way you got us into and out of the great little place at 5833 Blythwood Road. The transition from one abode to another has been trouble-free, and given our particular circumstances, this has been a special bounty in itself. Best wishes for all your endeavors!
-S. & J. Kendall
John, we would like to express our most sincere thanks for your expert, friendly help over the past few months. We felt we were in the best of hands both through the sale of our home and the purchase of this one. With our thanks.
-B. & S. Hyslop
John, we wanted to say how much we appreciated doing business with you. You are a very thorough and professional real estate agent and we would recommend you to anyone. We have bought and sold 6 houses and 1 condo over the years and have dealt with many agents and you definitely stand out from them all. Thank you once again.
-M. & T. Page
Of course, we expected to receive excellent professional service when we chose you to be our Realtor, John. However, it was the genuine concern and thoughtfulness that you exhibited which elevated from excellent to superlative It is the “going the extra mile” that we truly appreciated. Thank you.
-J. & J. Allan
John, we would like to express our appreciation for the wonderful service you provided. Your professionalism is unquestionable but beyond that you showed a warmth and humour that helped immensely in the sale of our home. We have bought and sold a lot of homes but never, until our dealings with you, have we used the same agent twice. When we decided to sell our home we did not hesitate – we simply picked up the phone and called you.
-D. & B. Carlaw
John, it has been a real pleasure to have such a professional realtor to work with. Your pleasant manner and sincere concern has shown at all times.
-E. & K. Lewis
John, due to your efforts my house was sold within 1 week of listing it on the market. What fabulous service! During the negotiating process, you offered your support and experience which resulted in a sale price that was 98% of the listing price. Your negotiation expertise surpassed all expectations. I felt that my personal and financial wellbeing was protected at all times. Your service from beginning to end was unsurpassed. Should the need to move arise again, you will be my first and only phone call to a real estate agent.
John, thank you for your help in the recent sale of our home and in the negotiation of the purchase of a new residence in Victoria. We were impressed with your professional attitude and appreciate all the help given to us by you and your office staff. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone else who needed the assistance of a realtor and are confident that you would work tirelessly for your client’s interest.
-P. & S. Crober
Thank you, John, so much for helping us buy our dream home! Your patience, knowledge and kindness are so appreciated. We still talk about how wonderful it was to work with you and your office and recommend you to everyone we know. Thanks for making the process so easy and stress-free for us.
-L. Overton & V. Lamontagne
It was a pleasure working with you on our oceanfront property purchase & thank you for your help & recommendations. We’re very excited about the purchase & about getting back to Canada. On a personal note, after the rather painful process of dealing with real estate agents in London & Dubai, it was an absolute pleasure working with someone so professional & knowledgeable & you helped make the process smooth – we wouldn’t be here without you, John, and that is very must appreciated.
-A. Kedzierski & T. Tait
We have purchased and sold five family homes throughout Western Canada over the past two decades. During this move to Victoria we were unfamiliar with the area and chose John based solely on his online presence and the level of professionalism that was apparent in his listings. We thought that a realtor that took that much care to properly present a home for sale was likely a good choice to help us with our purchase. This proved correct and we could not have been happier with the guidance and attention to detail we received, It was simply exemplary service and I will not hesitate to use John again or recommend him to friends or family.
-P & D Lutman
John, and now his partner, Johnny, put the PROFESSIONAL in Real Estate Professional. Our house sale in the Sooke area went so well, so quickly, and so seamlessly because of our complete faith in John Vernon. His reputation preceded him, and it enabled us to concentrate on all the other details necessary for our move to Alberta while John took care of everything to do with the house sale. His relaxed, friendly manner coupled with immediate response to questions and concerns, made him so easy to work with. I know we were fortrunate to have the very best of the best in the Real Estate field. We also met John’s son, Johnny, before we left, and can see what a great team they will make. To anyone in the Victoria area who is contemplating selling your home, make life easy for yourself and call John or Johnny Vernon. You just can’t do any better than having them on your team.
-C & J Calder
Thank you John— for your skill, encouragement, perseverance, & kindness — more than words can say. Best sleep in eons: thanks again to you for that. You are terrific!
Words cannot describe how grateful we are in trusting you with the sale of our home. Selling a home is a huge undertaking and having you once again help with the process has certainly eased our minds. The long hours you put in are very much appreciated and your care, tireless energy and professionalism have not gone unnoticed. We will miss this town and folks like you who make it so special.
-D. & P. Roux
Thank you so much for your help selling our home so quickly! My husband and I only have positive things to say about John and Johnny Vernon; their attention to detail and professionalism were second to none. They provided us with detailed information that helped us understand the local market and determine an appropriate asking price for our home. They were prompt and punctual in all their dealings and always available by email and phone. Their amazing service led to a lightning fast sale of our home in a cooling market. I would enthusiastically recommend the Vernons to friends and family and would not hesitate to work with them again myself.
Thank you so much for selling our home! It was not easy and we appreciate how thorough and professional you both were every step of the way. We will certainly use you again in the future. With gratitude,
-J. & K. Green
John Vernon Sr. and Johnny Vernon were referred to us when we needed a realtor and we have since used their services twice over the past few months. It has been an absolute pleasure working with John and Johnny. They were always quick to respond to us, kept us informed every step of the way and took the time to explain anything we did not fully understand. They were always professional and worked hard to get us what we needed when both buying and selling. We couldn’t have asked for a better overall experience and highly recommend John Vernon and Associates.
-P. & S. Lunness
We appreciate all your help on all sides of our deal, things certainly couldn’t have worked out better. Your knowledge, professionalism and dedication are evident in everything you do and much appreciated. We certainly hope we aren’t selling or buying anytime soon, but we know who to call if we do!
-A. Bailey & K. Heise

-L & C Larsen
We cannot say enough good things about the John Vernon team, they have been an absolute pleasure to work with. We consulted with multiple Realtors who we just didn’t connect with before we found John, Johnny and Dennis. They are warm and genuine people who truly care about their clients and understand the emotions involved in selling and buying a home. We trusted them fully with all of their recommendations in doing so, they sold our home in record time for a price which exceeded our expectations, and helped us buy our new dream home. We are forever grateful for the John Vernon Team.
