"With knowledge and market insight I will cut through the red tape to deliver full value"
Steve, We just wanted to thank you for all your help in our quest to buy a Vancouver Island retirement home. You were incredibly thorough in providing us with real estate information (and pictures) ahead of time for all the new properties coming up for sale, and you were very good at helping us weed out the ones that would not have turned out to be suitable. Your knowledge of local conditions and potential problems were of enormous assistance since we had only limited time during our BC house-hunting visit to make a decision. We really appreciate your honest opinions! You put in a lot of extra effort as well to research particular questions we had about the various Nanaimo retirement properties - and that certainly saved us a lot of time in the end!
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.
Because Steve would be working in Nanaimo, it seemed practical to look there, and you had appointments lined up for us from Departure Bay to Cedar. 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.

We met Steve Orsatti when
my husband wandered into the downtown Coast Realty Office in Nanaimo after
perusing a planned building site for the condominium, Marine Vista. As
this condominium still had to be built and was in fact still in the
planning and inception stage, Steve kept us informed on all the future
developments and guided us through putting an offer on a "still-to-be"
built project. In the meantime he had realtors come and make an appraisal
of our current property and help us arrive at a listing price. He worked
hard at giving our real estate maximum exposure through an MLS listing and
his personal website, newspaper advertising, and prominently placed
directional signs. In collaboration with my husband a detailed color
brochure including a scaled floor plan of the house was produced. He held
open houses every Sunday afternoon and was quick to respond to any
potential sales. His diligence and persistence paid off and we
successfully sold our house with Steve acting as a tough negotiator on our
behalf. We are presently living in a recently renovated duplex of my
husband's while we wait for our condo to be completed. In the meantime
Steve managed to get the subjects removed on the original contract and we
are presently looking forward to moving into our new home.

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!
