What are Karin's clients saying?
Karin is an excellent partner to have on side when buying or selling real estate in the Comox Valley. She made our recent relocation to the valley a breeze and we love our new home! Karin knows the market well, follows trends and is well connected in the community. She has an easy-going, professional approach and invests time and effort to understand what home means to you. Karin builds solid relationships and has good negotiation abilities. You can expect good advice, she is persuasive and will go to mattresses on your behalf if and when needed!
Lisa & Les
Karin was there for us every step of the way. From helping us sell our home to buying our new one, Karin was there with advice, representing our interests and negotiating on our behalf. Our home search took longer than expected but Karin was always available to look at properties and negotiate offers. We can't thank her enough for her time, dedication, and professionalism throughout. Thanks Karin!
Ryan & Lindsay
Karin's Professionalism, efficiency, warmth and knowledge of the housing market and the Comox Valley (especially since we are new to the area) made the experience of finding a suitable home for our family very low stress! She was always available to answer all of our questions and was very supportive throughout the entire process. We would definitely recommend working with Karin!
Lauren & Stefan
We have had the pleasure of working with Karin on two purchases over the past six years. The first, a condo at Mount Washington was straightforward but, nonetheless from the time that we started looking to our closing date, Karin was always with us when we needed her.
Three years ago we began *thinking* about a more permanent move to the Comox Valley. Even though we were not quite ready to make the leap from Victoria to the north island, Karin was always available to show us new listings that she thought we might be interested in.
Fast forward to 2017, Karin helped us find our most perfect home. Her diligence, knowledge and plenty of intuition meant that we were able to move through the buying process with a minimum of concern and a maximum of confidence.
We would recommend Karin wholeheartedly. You won't be disappointed in your realtor by working with her.
Peter & Judy
We recently purchased our dream home in the Comox Valley with Karin. We were in Edmonton at the time and buying a house in a city that you don't live in presents a whole world of issues. This is why it is so important to have a really good realtor like Karin. She was so professional & incredibly competent in every single step of the complicated process. The other huge benefit of going with Karin is that she is so well connected in the community and therefore all of the professionals she recommended for the inspections, registrations etc. were all fantastic! I couldn't recommend Karin more, she was so caring, knowledgable and hard working. Thank you again!
Tim & Emily
We had Karin Usipuik for the selling of our home and the buying of our new home. Karin was a delight to work with. She was efficient, knowledgable and gave us good advice on what decisions to make in both procedures. She was honest and always had our interests at heart. When I contacted her by email she was always prompt at answering any questions we had. No question was too silly or too small for her to answer. She was always there with her cheerful attitude. We had people looking every day and our home sold in 19 days. We were very happy with her and would recommend her to anyone that wants to get into the market today.
Joseph & Lori
Karin is such a wonderful realtor and have been so lucky to have her help us buy and sell our homes in the Comox Valley and Campbell River for over 10 years. She takes the time to listen and present your home in such a professional way. The recent market has been very competitive. We are so happy she helped us get our dream property and multiple offers on our last home! Thanks again Karin, you're amazing!
Bryan & Tara
Exceptional customer service! From booking showings to receiving keys when we purchased our dream home. Every detail was taken care of. It was challenging living far away & not being able to see homes in a hot market. Karin took the time to preview homes for us. Her extensive knowledge of the Comox Valley was incredible & made us feel comfortable with the area our family would be living in. Her communication skills are bar none. Always felt like we were being taken care of & in the loop. We lucked out with such an amazing realtor!
Chris & Melissa
Purchasing a new home and moving can be a daunting task at the best of times. Being unfamiliar with the Comox Valley and having to consider the needs of our young family could have added further complications to the process. We consider ourselves extremely fortunate that a family friend recommended Karin to us. Karin was exceptional in finding the exact property we had been envisioning in a community we couldn’t be happier with. Throughout the entire process Karin had always been forthright, insightful and professional, and we would highly recommend her to anyone requiring a realtor.
Ryan & Jillian
Karin is a wonderful REALTOR to work with. We were referred to her by several local families. Our move was a long distance one and Karin was very prompt in responding to our emails and answering our questions about the Comox Valley. She coordinated a fabulous list of homes to view that met our criteria for our weekend house hunting trip and then worked with us to coordinate conditions that worked in our favour for the house we ultimately bought. She has gone out of her way to ensure we are happy with our new home since we’ve moved in and we really appreciate her help. As newcomers to the area, she has been a reliable resource for recommendations for everything from cleaners to contractors. Having worked in the real estate industry myself, I can say with confidence that Karin is an extremely knowledgeable and proficient REALTOR. Thanks for everything Karin!
Kyle and Heather
We used Karin in August of 2016 for the purchase of our acreage. Seeing as it was our first time dealing with certain issues related to more rural living she had to help us understand and organize more inspections, etc than normal. She did so very willingly and was always available for last minute questions. It was a quick purchase and subsequently very quick sale of our former home which she also handled for us. Karin is so friendly and helpful, it felt like one of our friends helping us. She even helped me pick out the flooring for our new home! (which looks great by the way). She really made the process of selling AND buying a stress-free and smooth as possible. Would use her again in a heartbeat, except she helped us find our forever home!!! that is the testimonial needed.
Ronelle and Ryan
When we were seeking to buy property in Comox, we found Karin Usipuik absolutely charming to work with. She has a delightful disposition, extensive knowledge of the local market, and sound and professional advice -- all valuable characteristics when going through the turmoil of buying real estate. Given we had a tight house-hunting schedule, we were pleased that she was very efficient in discovering our objectives and limitations, and showing us properties that were consistent with both. Once we had a target property and the tension of negotiations began to rise, Karin’s sense of humour and wise guidance saw us through.
Fred and Maria
Previous customers of Karen recommended her to us. Upon meeting her for the first time we knew we made the right decision. We listed our duplex with her and she sold it in thirty days. She has a wonderful personality and lots of enthusiasm. We highly recommend her and will use her services when needed in the future.
Bryan and Cathy
Finding the perfect home wasn't as easy as we though it would be for us, but Karin helped us stay positive and found the perfect home for us in the end. She really went out of her way to help us out and we are extremely grateful for it. I recommend her to anyone who is buying or selling a home. Thank you Karin!
Angela & Frederick Peterson
I recently bought my first house using Karin as my realtor. It was an intimidating process but Karin was low pressure and her professional but personable approach made the process much more enjoyable. She went above and beyond as a realtor and I was able to buy my dream home - I couldn't be any happier.
Karin was fantastic and managed to sell our house in 19 days! I would recommend her to anyone selling or buying a home.
We have used Karin for our last 7 homes and find her honest in her dealings.
Donna and Jim Mizen
Thank-you for all your help with purchasing our new home. You went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home!
Kendall, Robert, and Carol
...when my husband Jim and I decided to move from St. Albert, Alberta to the area of Comox or Courtenay, it was natural for us to choose Karin as our realtor to find us a suitable home to meet our needs. For example, knowing that we were two very, 'senior- seniors' she did so much for us. It wasn’t easy us living in Alberta, selling our home, and buying in another province; but she went way beyond the call of duty in every way she could. Her keeping in touch with our realtor who was selling our home, made things easier for both Jim and I.
Anne and Jim Jeffrey
Working with Karin was such a positive experience; I can't recommend her highly enough. I've sent family and friends her way and they have had the same awesome experience. Karin's friendly, supportive and professional attitude made the daunting prospect of buying a new home a breeze. Her knowledge of the market and support through the buying process was invaluable to me. I never once felt pressured to buy; I think she wanted me to find the right house as much as I did! I really appreciated how quick and efficient her communication was and if she didn't know the answer to a question she would track it down right away. If you're thinking of selling or buying in the Comox Valley, you'll want Karin on your team!
Karin, you are an amazing real estate agent! You were always positive about how to make our house sell and when it did...you were positive through our buying "hiccups". We ended up in an incredible house perfect for our family. If we ever need a real estate agent again....we will definitely be using you again!
Trevor and April Hill
We felt valued and informed throughout the entire selling and buying process and credit her above and beyond marketing skills for selling our home.
Ryan and Lindsay Alexander
Karin you are my go to agent. Sold two houses with you and bought two with you. Congratulations on 10 years!
