Steve was recommended to us by friends who
had property on Gabriola. We had just sold our lower mainland homes and
were looking to relocate to “the island”. We started our search and
things didn’t look too promising. There were a lot of “dogs’ on the
market. If we showed the slightest interest in any of them, Steve
inundated with information….often to the point that we thought we were
going to drown in it ! Let it be said loud and clear for all to hear: if
Steve Orsatti is your agent, you will never, ever be able to say that
you made a decision without informed consent.
When it came time to schedule visits to our final real estate choices, you did a great job of arranging our real estate tour so that we got to view what we wanted in one convenient trip - with enough time to investigate further when we wanted to. You always kept us fully informed and that helped us make the right decision.
Even after the sale, you are one of the few realtors that has stayed in contact and continue to help with many details. You really do go above and beyond the call of duty! Thank you!!!

Mary Lee and I would like to thank you for your exemplary service and attention to detail in the purchase of our Gabriola Island home. Your prompt response to questions and concerns was outstanding and your cheerful disposition made the whole purchase process a wonderful experience. We certainly have no hesitation in recommending your services to prospective buyers or sellers and we look forward to island life in the future.

When Stephen and I were preparing to move here from Halifax last year, we had no idea where we wanted to look for a home and we had one week to find something. You showed us a great cross-section of homes, from brand new to older, and in all cases you were thorough, honest, patient and helpful.
When we decided we wanted to look for a more rural place, we began to consider Gabriola Island as an option. Because you live there, you knew first hand about using the ferry every day, you were careful to point out water concerns, explain septic and well issues and even discussed how to garden with deer! As soon as we drove off the ferry, we were hooked, and after seeing a couple of houses, we found our home.
Real estate law is different in B.C. from Nova Scotia, and you gave us a heads-up on absolutely everything we might need to know, pointed us toward a great lawyer, and followed through on every detail. Even our lawyer commented on how painstaking you are.
We are extremely happy in our home and living on Gabriola and even get to bump into you on the ferry on a regular basis!
I would be happy to pass along our heartiest recommendation about you to any potential client.
All the best,
Ginny Miller and Stephen Burr
Thank you very much for all your attention in helping us acquire our Gabriola Island 'dream' cabin. We both felt that you went above and beyond the call of duty. You were incredibly knowledgeable and helpful, answering all our questions and providing a list of the important contact numbers, which was especially helpful.
All that aside, we were most appreciative of the welcome you gave us when we finally arrived on the day of closing in the midst of a dark and stormy night, to the warmth of the cabin and the refreshments that were waiting for us after our drive up from Victoria. It was a welcome that we'll never forget and when we are ready to move up, you can be sure we'll be calling you for your help.
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend your excellent service to anyone seeking to purchase or sell a home, Steve.

I'm beginning to think you're the only nice realtor in Canada. Most realtors have not even answered my queries and the ones who have had been quite snippy. We are feeling very lucky to have you! Why did we do so well? Because we have a great real estate agent who steered us away from all the dicey stuff. Anyway, thanks for all your help in finding a Gabriola Island retirement home. We really appreciate it.

I have been impressed by
Steve since my initial contact with him. I have found him to be very
responsive to any request for information or assistance. He is not only
remarkably prompt with any reply but he is very thorough in the detail
that his provides. I have great confidence that Steve has an outstanding
knowledge of his field of work and consider him to be highly
professional. I would recommend him to anyone.
Thank you for all the effort you put in to helping us purchase our home. We are very pleased as to how smoothly the deal went thru. We couldn't have done it without you! Enjoy the wine which is from last year's collection. As you can see by the label, it has a very appropriate name being the same as the area we bought in. It's quite popular here. It must be destiny!
