Since our recreational property was in a remote location, we knew that it would be a long selling period and were impressed by the fact that Kirsten had a team behind her assisting all the way. If she took any vacation during our sales period, we weren't aware of it. I was always pleased with the prompt responses to any questions that we had. We would recommend Kirsten for anyone looking in the Kamloops area.
Karen & Bob
Will Use Her Again
I would strongly recommend Lisa to anybody who would like a realtor where she works. If we are ever looking at buying a house or selling a house or condo we would definitely use her again.
Richard & Anita
Simply the Best!
Kirsten Mason is the best real estate agent we have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. From listing our home to closing, she was so easy to work with. Her expertise of knowing the market is amazing! She not only helped us sell our home for a very good price, but helped us purchase our new home and has seen us through with the little details that go along with purchasing a brand new home. Even after the sale she is always there to help us, should we need her advice or guidance. We would highly recommend Kirsten Mason and her team to our family and friends. Just simply the best!
Mark & Debbie
We had seen multiple real estate listings with Kirsten Mason within our neighbourhood and observed great success in selling the properties quickly. Kirsten was very supportive, knowledgeable and always respectful of our needs. Every member of the Kirsten Mason team were amazing. Kirsten helped make a very stressful time a great experience.
Tony & Gina
By Far the Best
Becky really listened to what our needs were in the house we wanted for our family. We had very specific things on our "wish list" and she was honest with us about some of the houses we asked to look at. She knew what house would fit our family of 6 and she didn't just try and sell us any old house she sold us a home! We are an RCMP family so moving and buying and selling houses comes with the job. By far Becky was the best realtor we have dealt with. If we have to move again we will only use her.
Elizabeth & Barry
Truly Cared About Us
Without Jennifer things would not have been so smooth and easy going. She was always on top of things and made sure that we had everything we needed to ensure our deal went as perfect as it could. She was always there by phone or text when we needed something and was so quick to respond. Jennifer really was the perfect agent for us and great with our kids too which was an added bonus. We won't be able to thank her enough for all of her time and help but I truly hope she knows how much we appreciated her work and knowledge. It really did feel like she cared about our family and finding the perfect home.
Kelly & Mark
Efficient & Professional
Kirsten and her team were a pleasure to work with. As a first time home seller, she walked us through every step and was efficient and professional through the entire process. We were under tight time constraints due to moving out of the county and she was accommodating and easily accessible when we were on holidays during the listing stage and out of the country at the closing stage. We would highly recommend Kirsten to anyone selling or buying a home in the Kamloops area!
Chris & Meredith
There for Us All the Way
Patsy Skene was there for us all the way. She was professional and personable. Made herself available on short notice, which made the difference for us considering the time frame in our situation. Patsy is very knowledgeable on the legals pertaining to properties involved. Patsy did an excellent job for us and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone else. Thanks Patsy.
Vic & Lucille
Amazing to Work With
Kirsten and her team were amazing to work with. Very knowledgeable and professional. We had met with other realtors as recommended to do, Kirsten had the least amount of time to prepare for our meeting but was the only one that came prepared with comparable properties that had sold and were on market in our area. She sold the house in 7 days for more than asking. I would highly recommend Kirsten and her team
Becky & Russ
Kirsten came to our home and met with my wife and me and talked with us about the possibilities of listing our home at that time, due to good market conditions in our area. We had expected to speak with other agents as we had a bad experience with another realtor in the fall and didn`t want to make a hasty decision. However, Kirsten showed us her professionalism and knowledge, and we felt comfortable with her ability to sell our home. She listed the house that day and we had viewings booked the following day so she and members of her team came in and staged the home and we had an offer that evening! We were somewhat taken aback that it all happened so fast since we were far from ready to move but the final price was very close to asking so the deal was done. We would absolutely recommend Kirsten Mason and her team to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property. We are happy we did!
Wayne & Eileen
Impressed with her Knowledge
Our experience with Kirsten and her team was amazing. Kirsten was able to meet with us at our home and provide us with all the information we needed. We were impressed with her knowledge on the current market and that she could provide us with comps in the area and a market value for our home, all in our first visit. Our home sold right away and the process was painless! We would highly recommend Kirsten and her team!
Jen, Connor & Peter
To say something about Lisa. She is awesome! Would not hesitate to use her as a realtor again. She went out of her way and beyond my expectations. I am so happy that I met Lisa and had the opportunity to use her services as a realtor. She's # 1 in my books.
I researched a bit online before contacting Kirsten's office. After meeting with her and seeing the office staff I was pretty sure id made the right choice. Right from the get-go I had a good feeling about Kirsten, seemed easy to connect with, approachable, realistic, knowledgeable, smart, good sense of humour too. I really can't think of any way my dealings in this sale could of been improved upon . I'd highly recommend this group and am 100% satisfied with their performance, remarkably different than a couple other realtors we had dealt with previously.
Pleasure to Work With
Lisa was an absolute pleasure to work with. Coming from out of town and with limited time, we did a marathon day of house viewing to find "the one". Start to finish Lisa was friendly, professional, patient, knowledgeable, and went above and beyond to make sure I was happy. I would definitely work with Lisa again, and highly recommend her to anyone looking for their next home.
Went Out of Her Way
I really appreciate Lisa going out of her way to find us a house that was suitable for myself, my family, and my mom and dad with enough room for all of the kids and the pets in the neighborhood that we really wanted to stay in. Thank you again Lisa for all you did it was a long haul but it was awesome!
Jenny & Chris
Jennifer was great! She is super friendly and easy to talk to and was so helpful with all of our real estate questions. She is very accommodating to our busy schedule. She helped us find our rental property and made sure it was an easy, stress free experience. Definitely recommend working with her!
Willing to go the Extra Mile
Jennifer is a excellent realtor!! She is so attentive to her clients needs, very friendly and always willing to go the extra mile!! She is very accommodating to busy schedules and I would highly recommend her if you are looking to buy or sell!!
Amazing & Patient
Lisa was amazing, and so patient! New to Kamloops it took us some time to find just the right area AND the right house. She was always professional and encouraging. We found the market demand frustrating some days and thought we'd never find the 'right' one, that wasn't already spoken for. Lisa was patient and assured us we would, and made herself available to show home after home LOL. We thank you so much Lisa, you are the best!!!!
Mark & Candida
Professional & a Joy to Work With
Jennifer was referred to us from our mortgage broker. We were very happy to find out that we share the same home town as her and hit it off from there! She was very professional and a joy to look at houses with. We were very thankful that she made our first home buying experience less stressful than we could have imagined. We are so happy that she put her time and effort into us to help us find our first home! Thank you Jennifer!!
Nick & Elissa
Confident of Decision
I would recommend Jennifer as she is professional, accountable and determined to help. She has a no pressure approach that helped me to feel very confident about my decision. She was very attentive to what I was looking for and provided me with in depth research to help make an informed choice.
Jamie & Dan
Jen was an awesome help with picking out a place that worked for me. Even before I moved down to kamloops she was sending me specific houses that matched my needs! Thanks a lot Jen it was great going through you and Desert Hills!!
Clayton & Breana
Someone that will Level with You
Sometimes you just need someone to level with you to ensure you don't make a disastrous choice. Meryl did that for my Wife and I, allowing us to find our perfect starter home!
Nevin & Kayla
Knowledgeable & Professional
Just wanted to say thank you very much for all your help! You made getting an investment property very easy. You were very knowledgeable and professional. Would highly reccomend!!
Enjoyed Working With Her
We just bought a home through Jennifer. We really enjoyed working with her. She was very helpful, knowledgeable, professional and always wore an infectious smile. Thanks Jennifer.
Danielle & John
Made it Easy
Great service made it easy to get our first home!
Ben & Rhea
Caring & Friendly
I have nothing but fantastic things to say about Jennifer. She does a great job at what she does. She is caring, friendly and gets you the answers you need right away. I would highly recommend Jennifer to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. I thank her so much for all that she has done for us. I also want to thank the whole team. The assistant did a great job at providing us with showing feedbacks and lining up showings.
Barb & Mark
Never Felt Pressured to Buy
We decided to use Kirsten Mason as our realtor after my mom had such a great experience with her. We were lucky enough to get Becky as well. The process was so easy and everything was straight forward. Kirsten really paid attention to what we needed to do to sell our house. We managed to sell the house so quickly, allowing us to find the perfect home for us. She was honest with us about what we were looking at. She never rushed us or made us feel pressured to buy a certain property. We always felt that she had our backs both with the sale and the purchase. We would highly recommend Kirsten and her team to any of our friends and family.
Amanda & Shaun
The service provided by the team is always excellent. Kirsten is a consummate professional and I would not deal with anyone else!!
Extremely Helpful & Knowledgeable
Kirsten Mason is extremely helpful and knowledgeable and made our first time home purchase a breeze! We would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a new home.
Kayla & Trace
Made the Process Feel Easy
My husband and I needed to sell our home quickly recently. We decided to list with Kirsten because of her experience in Kamloops. We were very impressed with her presentation and knowledge and honesty. Kirsten and her team were always professional and understanding that we had dogs to coordinate for our showings. The whole process just felt so easy from start to finish. Not stressful at all, as home sales can be. We would highly recommend Kirsten and her team to anyone looking to buy or sell in Kamloops. You're definitely not just a dollar sign to her. She actually cares about your family's needs.
Brad & Cathy
Amazing to Work With
Kirsten was amazing to work with. Very knowledgeable and professional. We had heard so many great things about her and after years of trying to sell our home decided to give her a shot. She sold the house in less that 60 days. Working with Becky, one of her junior sales team members, was also a very good experience. I would highly recommend Kirsten and her team.
Patsy was very kind and professional everyday we spoke with her. She was on top of all our needs and knew everything we needed before we did. She found us our HOUSE, and we are extremely grateful for having her on our side. She knew what we wanted and if there was a house that we were interested in and it wasn't worth visiting she told us and after a couple extra visits she gained our complete trust in what we wanted. I would recommend Patsy to anyone who is looking for a place to make a Home. Patsy you are a Rockstar.
Eric & Audrey
Found Exactly What We Wanted
Worked with Kirsten directly. She was excellent. Found us exactly what we were looking for in a limited market. Would highly recommend to friends and family.
Knows Her Stuff
Patsy is friendly, fair, and knows her stuff.
Didn't Hesitate to Call
When I made the decision to sell my home I didn't even hesitate to call Kirsten Mason. I worked with Kirsten previously on my purchase years ago and knew that she was more than capable of selling my home and finding just the right new home for me.
Kirsten treats me like I'm a family member. I highly recommend her and her team to get things done ! Amazing person and amazing results!
Continue to Recommend
Our new house is wonderful and so was Trudy! Trudy was approachable and extremely friendly! When we first began looking for a home she was quick to respond and set up viewings. Trudy asked appropriate questions to find out what we were looking for. She did a great job at keeping us up to date on all of the new houses going on the market and worked to make sure she found or recommended places that were within our budget and fit our wants and needs! During viewings Trudy allowed us to wander the houses on our own terms and gave us privacy to discuss the things we liked or disliked. Trudy was never pushy and let us form our own opinions about the homes we looked at. One of the things I liked best was that Trudy was honest! If we ever had any concerns or questions she would give us a straight forward answer. Moreover if we ever had any questions she would respond in a timely manner. As first time home buyers it was very important that we understood the process of buying a home. Trudy was extremely informative and made sure that we understood the contract and thay we stayed on track with having our subjects removed. Furthermore, Trudy never let the fact that Century 21 was the realtor for both us and the sellers. She remained honest and helped us with our negotiation! We truly could not have bought our home without her! Trudy was a pleasure to work with and I have and will continue to recommend her. Thanks for everything!
Haley & Mark
Would Refer Time & Time Again
We had been looking for our “forever” house for almost 3 years when we met Kirsten. We’d engaged with a few realtors over that time, however never felt them to work for US! We had heard Kirsten’s name in positive favour from friends, family & colleagues and when it was time to look at yet another house we made the call that changed everything. Kirsten listened to our long list of wants and took it away to work on. Within days she said, “I know the house for you” and got working on making a connection. She knew a family thinking of selling and worked fairly for both of us to arrange the sale. She also was amazing at selling our home; she had her team come through to discuss the right price, she had buyers through right away and understood my angst around showings with 2 kids & 2 dogs; not to mention she had us an offer before the sign went up! Now this is someone who is working for their fee, keeping their clients’ interests front of mind and is a specialist in the art of making a deal. Its without hesitation that we would refer to Kirsten, time & time again.
Anthony & Sarah
Made Home Searching Fun!
We desired to have a real estate agent in Kamloops help us find a home. We had contacted one realtor who did not understand our needs and timing at all so we broadened our search and we found Jennifer Todoruk of Century 21. After she quizzed us by phone we met her the next day and she had prepared a comprehensive list and schedule of property visits and so we commenced our property search under Jennifer's positive direction, professionalism, humour and happy attitude. She made home searching fun and met our objectives as we bought the home of our dreams in Kamloops. We enjoyed working with Jennifer and would recommend her to anyone wishing to buy or sell a Kamloops property.
David & Anna
Professional & Approachable
We can't even begin to thank Kirsten and her amazing team for all the hard work they did selling our house. Whenever issues arose they handled them for us or provided us with instructions on how to deal with them. They were always available to us and were accommodating to all our requests. They kept us informed on all activity with our house and always informed us prior to showings or open houses. The whole team was professional and approachable. Thank you to everyone who helped us with the sale of our house.
Joe & Lindsay
As veteran home buyers but first time "Out of Town" buyers we were often disadvantaged by time and accessibility. Lisa was very understanding and patient with us, even going as far as visiting perspective homes in our absence to measure noise volume from busy streets. The Kirsten Mason team and specifically Lisa Villamo went way beyond any reasonable expectations to put us in the market place and eventually our dream home. We can't say enough good things. Our sincere appreciation for her professionalism and patience.
Alan & Darlene
Answered All My Questions
Kirsten, I wanted to thank you for helping me through the process of being a homeowner. You took the time to explain everything to me and answered all my questions, making it all less overwhelming and stressful. I could not have asked for a better realtor! I appreciate everything you and your team did for me. Thank you again and all the best in 2017!
What a realtor should be!
We first met Patsy last year when we began house hunting and as discerning buyers we looked at well over 60 homes before the “right one” came up. Through that time Patsy had been patient, polite and full of knowledge regarding every property that we looked at. A consummate professional from the start of house hunting to that exciting day when the keys were handed over and then some! Patsy has the drive and energy to make your real estate experience the best there is bar none! Proud to call Patsy a friend.
Pierre & Deb
Positive, Supportive, and Professional
From the moment I met Kirsten, I felt confident and comfortable in hiring her and her team to sell my house. She took amazing photos that depicted the 'wow' factor I was looking for. Kirsten remained positive, supportive, and professional throughout the entire arduous and sometimes exhausting and emotional process of selling and saying goodbye to my much loved home. I would hire Kirsten and her team again in a pinch. Thanks Kirsten...you are awesome.
When we planned selling our Duplex, it was a concern regarding the Listing as we lived in the South Okanagan. However, Patsy was fantastic, we had a quick sale and with her direction she made the process very easy. We would highly recommend her service.
Elizabeth & Frank
The Realtor I Would Phone First
About a year ago, l just happened to call Jennifer Todoruk to look at some places, as we were thinking that we might move to Kamloops. Jennifer is the most patient realtor as it took a lot of weekends of us looking at different places. One building she showed us 12 suites at all different times. She never was in a hurry and would always line up what we wanted to see, as we had to drive in out of town. She was always very pleasant and friendly. If l were to sell again, Jennifer would be the realtor that l would phone first, thanks Jennifer!!
Don & Leanna
Knew Her Stuff
Meryl was a pleasure to have as our Real Estate Agent. She was professional and she certainly knew her stuff! We love our new cabin by the lake and really appreciate all she did for us!
Glenn & Andrea
Goes Out of Her Way
Kirsten and her team provided us with exceptional service. She went out of her way to accommodate our busy schedules and worked hard to find us a home that met our needs. Kirsten is very knowledgeable and provided us with excellent advice and guidance. I can't say enough; I feel like we got great value for our new home and Kirsten added a lot of value in her experience and expertise. I would highly recommend her if you are buying or selling; we've worked with several realtors over the years and none have worked as hard as Kirsten. We even arrived at our new home to find a lovely care package from her.
Aaron & Paula
How Buying a Home Should Be
Our experience with Patsy Skene and the Kirsten Mason Team was outstanding. Tracy and I initially were having a difficult time finding a house that would fit our needs and budget in Kamloops, but Patsy found us a home that is so much more than we could have ever hoped for. She worked with us on a personal basis and understood exactly what we were looking for, never once showing us a house that wasn’t a good contender. It took about a year for Tracy and I decide on a home, and during that time Patsy was always excited to meet at a new listing and was able to work with our complicated work schedules. In the end, Patsy knew she had found us our new home, before she even showed it to us. We fell in love with it the moment we stepped through the front door. Our entire experience right down to the final paperwork was a pleasure. Tracy and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Patsy Skene and the Kirsten Mason Team to any of our friends and family.
Tracy & Landon
Lisa Villamo is an amazing Real Estate Agent! She listened to our needs and worked hard to find us our dream home for our growing family. Her patience, knowledge, attention to detail, and great personality helped us first time home buyers feel comfortable and stress free during the whole process! We highly recommend Lisa to everyone looking to purchase a home in Kamloops and the Thompson Region! Thanks again Lisa and the Kirsten Mason Team for making this experience so fun and exciting for our family!
Jackie & Jared
Above & Beyond Expectation
Meryl helped us to buy a home for our daughter and we didn’t hesitate to go back to her when it was time to sell. We live in Ontario so we needed an agent who would go above and beyond normal expectation for us and Meryl was everything we could hope for. We’d definitely recommend her to anyone who needs a hard-working and committed agent to buy or sell a property.
Kate, Elaine & Phil
Pleasure to Work With
As we contemplated selling our house we sought a realtor that would act more as a consultant than a salesperson. We came across Kirsten Mason and were glad we did. She provided us with valuable advice and help us navigate through the process of listing and selling. Kirsten and her team were professional, responsive and a pleasure to work with. If you are thinking of selling your house I would not hesitate in recommending Kirsten and her team.
Ray & Patti
Recommend to All Our Friends
Patsy you were so great and we can't tell you how much we appreciated everything... absolutely everything; from finding us our first family home to helping us with a tax lady to doing everything possible to get us in our new home as early as you could to make our move easier. With all the extras you helped organize in the home (hot water tank, duct cleaning, etc) you really have been the perfect Realtor, we couldn't have asked for anything better. We will recommend you to all of our friends and family and talk about how you found and got us our beautiful home! It was truly a pleasure to meet and work with you. Please feel free to pop by anytime for a visit. We wish you all the best and THANK you once again for EVERYTHING
Ashley, Duncan & Abby
Lisa is one of the best realtor we have worked with, she is very knowledgeable about the Sun Peaks market, she was able to guide us through the available listings and really allowed us to find a great home. She provides great perspectives on listings, highlighting features or potential concerns that we might have missed and through her extensive connections she is capable of addressing any question. We would have no hesitations to work with Lisa again or recommend her to friends!
Jean Yves & Katell
Represents Your Interests Well
She was extremely helpful, always available to show us homes including properties outside of the Kamloops area. Trudy is not a pushy realtor which we really appreciated. We had a few issues regarding the condition of the house on the possession date and she acted promptly and fairly. She represented our interests well and it was an absolute delight to work with her and your team. We would recommend Trudy in a heartbeat!
Dianne & George
A big thank you to my Realtor, Patsy Skene and to the Kirsten Mason Team for all their hard work in selling my home. Patsy gave her undivided attention, was efficient, paid attention to detail, very organized, always kept me in the loop and would always find the answers to any question. Patsy... not only an awesome Realtor but has become a good friend. I can not thank her enough for all her help, patience and positive attitude through the selling process of selling my property. I would recommend to any one planning on purchasing or selling their home to contact Patsy Skene ....would be in good hands with Patsy and the Kirsten Mason Team.
Not a Single Detail Missed
We were so happy to be able to work with Meryl again. This time she helped us with the sale of our property. Her hard work was supercharged by the great members of the Kirsten Mason Team. We couldn’t believe the personal assistance we received, as often as necessary, and not a single detail was missed. We will definitely deal with Meryl and the team next time.
Allen & Susanne
We were more than happy with how Kirsten and her team handled the sale of our house. We were extremely pleased with the high quality of service that the team provided. Kirsten was always available to answer any questions that we had. We would highly recommend Kirsten Mason and her team if you are buying or selling.
Clay & Lisa
Understands Your Needs
We were recommended Kirsten team from Ryan and Carla Donnelly. The whole team is excellent especially Kirsten. From the beginning to the end they are all very professional and work very well with understanding your needs. I would highly recommend Kirsten and her team
Vicki & Peter
There to Help
Kirsten and her team were awesome. When Kirsten herself had too much on the go she brought in one of her team members to help show me places and bring new options to the table. It was also nice to have a second set of eyes pointing things out. I probably wouldn't have bought the place I am in now if Patsy didn't reccomend a second viewing of the place. They were very timely, knowledgeable and care about their clients, even difficult clients like myself. Anytime I needed guidance or something faxed to the broker, they were there to help. Thanks Kirsten Mason and team.
Kept Informed Every Step of the Way
We would like to express our gratitude to Kirsten Mason and her staff at The Kirsten Mason Team for the wonderful job they did in helping us sell our condo prior to a move into Berwick in August. Kirsten met with us and our family, explained in detail what she would do to facilitate the sale, and then did exactly what she said she would do. After 2 months on the market and dozens of viewings, we ended up with multiple offers and a sales price that we were happy with. We were particularly appreciative of the effort Kirsten and her staff made to keep us and our family informed every step along the way. Kirsten took the time to make sure we understood what was happening, guided us through the sometimes confusing process, and we received regular updates after viewings with feedback from her staff. Kirsten personally dealt with some issues that arose during the sale process and even after when the buyer was challenging. For this we are truly appreciative. Moving and selling can be very stressful when you get older, and we are grateful for the patience Kirsten had with us to make the transition go as smoothly as possible. We would not hesitate to recommend Kirsten and her team at Century 21. Thank you again for all you have done.
Cam & Georgie
Can't Say Enough
Patsy was our realtor and we can't say enough about all the hard work she put in finding us our perfect place!!
Recommend Every Chance We Get
After our first meeting with Kirsten we knew she was the best choice to sell our house. She was so easy to talk with yet very organized and professional. Selling our home after 23 years could have been so stressful but with Kirsten and her team helping us along it went extremely well. We will recommend them every chance we get.
Loranne & Dan
It only takes one to buy your home ... this is what Kirsten told me! And it was only a matter of time before my apartment SOLD because of all the showings ... not to mention the great photos that were taken to show case my apartment! :o) Kirsten's whole team was very professional, friendly and oh so timely in responding to phone calls and emails ... the whole experience sure was awesome ... thank you! :o)
A Great Team
We had several realtors who listed our house in Kamloops over the last three years. Once the realtors listed the house there seemed to be a big black hole in their communication skills regarding our listing. We finally got fed up and our last realtor and he said "if I was changing realtors I would recommend Kirsten Mason, she has a great team" It was the best advice we had concerning realtors. Kirsten is well organized, excellent follow up after showings with great feedback from her staff. She had three to four times more showings than any other realtor we had and she works very hard to sell your property. Everyone has high expectations of what their house is worth and she doesn't hold back in expressing her expert opinion of the market and what your house is worth under the current market conditions. I would highly recommend Kirsten Mason and her team if you are buying or selling. I have known a lot of realtors over my nearly 40 years in Kamloops and Kirsten is head and shoulders above all realtors. Kirsten gets the job done.
Harold & Marilyn
Did not disappoint!
After having my home on the market for 6 months the previous year with another realtor and the property not selling, I decided to look for new realtor in the Spring. As I was going through a divorce the circumstances were sensitive and it was important that the realtor and their team stay neutral. I work with many realtors in my business but never had professionally worked with Kirsten but she has always had a good reputation. Well her and her administration team did not disappoint. Their professionalism was outstanding. They were prompt and courteous. They were sensitive to the situation and worked around the obstacles that presented themselves, and there were many! Highly recommend Kirsten and her team as they will work hard to get the home sold with as little hassle as possible. Don’t hesitate to contact her for selling your home!
Cares About Her Clients
We were very pleased with everything that Patsy did for us in our purchase. Wasn't an easy task as I was out of town and communication was text and email. She handled so much for us, gave us a great information and guidance. She's a good person, very funny and really cares about her clients. We would highly recommend Patsy.
Well it was the longest draw out sale we have ever been involved with, nobody's fault, just a unique property that would only attract unique buyers. But, we wanted out of the valley and your team came highly recommended. All said and done, Trudy did well for us in getting us the offer we wanted.
John & Tilley
A Big Thank You
We spent 6 months with Lisa Villamo looking for the perfect home. She was patient, informative, and resourceful. Our request was a challenge - we were looking for specific things inside the home, within a defined area in Kamloops, and of course, at a good price! Lisa met all these requirements; she sought out homes that would interest us and was able to answer our questions about what to look for and who to ask, i.e. how much do windows cost? Who would I talk to about getting a foundation assessment? What I appreciated most about Lisa was that she was honest and genuine. She didn’t pressure us or try to persuade us into something we weren’t quite sure about. Lisa was also always available, she demonstrated passion and dedication to her work and would make time after hours, in the evening, to take us through homes. I would like to send a big thank you to Lisa and the Kirsten Mason Team for all they have done for us. We are very happy with our new home!
Andrea & Duff
Lisa Villamo of the Kirsten Mason Team helped two old people through the selection and purchase of our new home. Lisa responded to every request for help or information regarding the unique requirements of Sun Rivers. We could not have wished for better service from Lisa, a valuable member of the KM Team.
Juanita & Peter
We were looking for a lakefront cabin near Sun Peaks and had the pleasure of working with Lisa Villamo who lives in the area and knows it very well. Lisa was extremely responsive to the many questions we had and spent a large portion of several weekends with us getting to know our priorities, touring properties, and sharing critical insights on the attributes of various locations. She subsequently facilitated the negotiations, actively supported the subsequent inspections and discussions to resolve potential concerns, and continues to be a trusted resource as we move into our new home. Thank you very much Lisa and to the supporting Kirsten Mason Team!
Kate & Chad
A Great Job
Lisa and the Kirsten Mason team did a great job with the acquisition of my new Kamloops home! I came to Lisa to find me a unique property as a second home. As I am from the Vancouver, I didn't know the area all that well. Lisa took the time to show me the areas and find that perfect property for me!
Felt Like First Priority
We thought Kirsten's service was excellent. We contacted her on short notice and she was able to immediately assist us and book showings for us. We found her to have a strong knowledge of the market and the real estate industry. She was able to successfully guide us through the purchase of our home and ensured we and any kinks were ironed out. We know Kirsten is very busy but we felt like we were her first priority throughout the entire experience. We had a great experience through Kirsten and we would not hesitate to refer her to friends or to use her services again.
Gavan & Leeza
Thank you to Kirsten for selling our house in just 4 weeks. I was very impressed with her and her team, from booking potential buyers to guiding us through the sale process. We would definitely recommend Kirsten Mason to anyone that is looking for a real estate agent.
Les & Lori
Happy, Professional, and Positive
Our first experience with Kirsten was positive right from the get go. Our introduction was over the phone and the offer we made on the first home was done without seeing the home or meeting Kirsten. She provided us with a great video of the home, made arrangements for a family member to view the home and worked with us as multiple offers were made on the home. We were not successful but did not feel that way. She provided us with constant updates on available homes and made suggestions on homes we may be interested in. We bought in area we were not interested in but have come to realize she was right. This area is perfectly suited to us. She is happy, professional and positive to work with and we would be happy to recommend her for your housing needs.
Bev & Ken
By Far the Best
Thank you so much to Kirsten & all of her Team Members for: a professional, peaceful, knowledgeable, worry-free, expertise, enjoyable & fun experience. Next to one other realtor we dealt with in the 1990’s this has been by far the best realtor experience we have ever had. We highly recommend the Kirsten Mason Team for any real estate transactions. They will not disappoint.
Rhonda & Ed
We spoke to three realtors for the sale of our much loved home in Kamloops. Kirsten spoke upfront about what we can expect from her and her team with a confidence that made us comfortable with the experience. The visual presentation Kirsten did for us when she came to evaluate our house was easy to follow and answered questions I hadn't asked yet. Becky and Caylee were prompt when responding to questions I had and kept in touch with me through all the open houses and showings. The team also assisted me when I had given my house key to a house guest and was subsequently locked out. They worked at getting someone to my place to unlock the lock box to let me in! I would recommend Kirsten Mason's Team because I liked the accessibility of reaching more than one person.
Nicole & Marc
Over & Beyond
We LOVE Meryl Grant! She was extremely friendly and easy to talk to. We viewed a few places that were very apparent, after entering them, that they were not what we were looking for and she had a great sense of humor to get us through the house! She also went over and beyond what I would think she needed to with helping us first time home buyers with everything from backing from the bank to finding lawyers/home inspectors and going over the inspection with us. We are very much enjoying our new home and she was very helpful with helping us imagine certain renos that would make this home to what we were looking for!
Jonnie & Derek
Truly the Best
We have been dealing with Patsy for well over a year as both my other half and I were really picky on what we wanted as this was a big commitment. I don't know how many showings she gave us I thought for sure she would give up on us but she didn't and we really appreciate it as we have bought a wonderful place with her help (hand holding most of the time). She is funny and a hard worker and I would recommend to anyone who is buying a house to go see Patsy as she is the best!
Roxane & Keith
Polite, Charming, and Enthusiastic
High marks for Patsy and Kirsten Mason team. When my wife first gave a phone call to Patsy about a place and we were going out of town for a couple of weeks, she put a note on her file that we are very much interested in the property. Sure enough, when we came back, there it was waiting for us, so that we could have a look at it and maybe give an offer. She acted quickly and voila! - now we have a place to live. She is so polite, charming and enthusiastic, with contagious warmth all the way. Can we we recommend her? Absolutely!
Karl & Eila
I would like to thank Kirsten and her team for doing an outstanding job in selling our home. We were under an immense amount of stress at the time we put our house up for sale as we prepared to move across the country with two small kids. Kirsten was very responsive to our situation and catered to our schedules for showings and administrative work. She was also very clear and straight forward about the process and due to her hard work our house sold after only three days on the market. Having our house sell so quickly, and at a profit, reduced our stress significantly and enabled us to settle in our new home much more quickly. We are extremely satisfied and would highly recommend her services
Jessica & Steve
Exemplary Personable & Professional Manner
Thank you Kirsten and your Team in successfully selling our home the first day on the market! From the first meeting with Kirsten to the closing of our home, her personable and professional manner was exemplary. The outstanding advertising and competency of this Company definitely helped sell our house. We highly recommend Kirsten and her Team to anyone selling their home.
Garry & Carol
Goes Above & Beyond
Trudy goes above and beyond for her clients. I would highly recommend her with regards to any real estate dealings.
Carol & Stan
On Top of Everything
Kirsten was amazing to work with every step of the way. She goes above and beyond and is on top of everything! Cannot say enough good things about her and her team!
Jessica & Mark
Jennifer is just an AMAZING person! As a first time home buyer, I was very nervous and didn't even know where to begin. She made it so easy for me to talk to her, and she genuinely cared about what I wanted and needed. She was very patient looking at place and place until we found my perfect home. I am so happy :) Having her as my agent made the process a breeze, as she explained everything that we were doing perfectly and always kept in contact with me. I will be recommending her to everyone I know!
Goes The Extra Mile
This letter is to express my sincere thanks and gratitude to Jennifer Todoruk for her outstanding service. Although the end result of my efforts to buy a house was not what I had hoped for, the time and effort Jennifer put into making my experience valuable cannot be adequately described by a simple email. Over the past couple of months, Jennifer went the extra mile to ensure I had all the information I required, she kept in touch on a daily basis and treated me with the same level of enthusiasm and respect as if I was a family member or close friend. Century 21 and the Kirsten Mason Team is lucky to have her as part of that team and I will definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor. I would also like to extend thanks to Lisa Villamo for looking after me in Jennifer's absence while on holiday. She, as well, was very kind and attentive.
Easy to Communicate With
Apparently my home had a few things working against it. I got Kirsten Mason on scene and she generated enough potential buyers to eventually find the deal. Took a short amount of time in comparison to my other attempts, it was about a month. Very good person and easy to communicate with. I have recommended her since and will do so again.
I can't highly recommend Lisa enough! She is in real estate for the right reasons: to help her clients find the best home, at the best value. Her expert knowledge of the local market enabled me to find exactly what I was looking for, and at a great price. Lisa's professionalism, personality, experience, and attention to detail made whole the process enjoyable, rather than stressful. I would definitely work with her again and certainly recommend her if you're looking to buy or sell a home.
Working with Meryl was a delightful experience. It was great to get so much insight from a true expert in the field. Meryl went above and beyond on numerous occasions and we were so thrilled to have found our first home with her help and guidance. I strongly recommend working with Meryl if your buying or selling a property!
Rahim & Jessica
I could go on and on.....just LOVED her to bits!!!!!
I am impressed with Kirsten Mason!! In one month with Kirsten, we had more showings than in the 3 months with a previous realtor! She knows how to market a house AND how to guide the seller to negotiate the best price! And we sold our house quickly. I would HIGHLY recommend her and I do to everyone! She has a fun easy going personality and you feel like you have known her forever!
Pays Attention to all the Details
Lisa was wonderful to work with!! She is organized and pays attention to all the details. She did a very good job of selling our home, giving ample notice for viewings and providing us prompt feedback. We were very uncertain about what we wanted to buy; she patiently took us to three communities, and many different types of houses----always with a smile!! We appreciated all the help, time and patience she gave us. She does an outstanding job!!! We have recommended her to many people.
John & Doris
Made Buying & Selling Easy
Kirsten and Patsy sold our house over a long weekend and made buying and selling a house so easy. I would recommend them to everyone.

Claude & Katherine
The Perfect Fit
Kirsten and her entire team are an absolute pleasure to work with. They are fast, efficient, professional and get the job done! They take the stress out of buying and selling a home. Kirsten set us up with Lisa to help find a new home and I can’t say enough about her. My husband and I are very picky…and she was so patient, understanding and totally dedicated to finding the perfect fit for us. She remembered every little detail that we said we were looking (and not looking) for and ultimately helped us find and purchase the perfect home! And to top it off she was so much fun to work with. I highly recommend Kirsten & Lisa to anyone looking to sell and/or buy a home!!
Jen & Monte
The Go-To Team
We were very happy with Kirsten and her team. Kirsten was very knowledgeable and helpful. She is great with all avenues of online coverage. She took awesome pictures and presented our house well. She and her team were always available and kept us informed quickly after each showing. Kirsten avails herself at anytime and is super helpful. She was also wonderful with our old dog Lilly. She and her team are the "go to" people if you want to sell your house.
Barb & Mark
Made the Process Seamless
Patsy Skene has a unique way of making doing real estate transactions appear seamless. During both the purchase and the sale Patsy gave us her undivided attention. She was busy but we were so well taken care that she made us feel as though we were her only clients. Patsy was unfailingly pleasant, attentive, prompt, efficient and accommodating. And beyond that, she was a great negotiator with the other agents. We highly recommend her.
Patricia & Wayne
Very Positive Experience
Our experience with the Kirsten Mason Team was very positive. Jennifer was a delight to work with. Being from out of town and having limited time to work with she did an amazing job understanding our needs and lining up appropriate properties to view. Her knowledge, technical and communication skills made everything go smoothly right up to closing.
Sandra & Roger
Trudy was Great!
I could not believe how accommodating Trudy was with our schedule. We were purchasing a mobile home, and whenever we had the time to view, she was available. We greatly appreciate the great service we received.
Catherine & David
Continual Sense of Right...
It is and has been an absolute pleasure to deal with the entire Kirsten Mason Team. All of them are very professional, with the right mix of common sense and integrity. We enjoyed especially working with Patsy and her continual sense of right, courtesy, thoughtfulness and wisdom. Patsy worked very hard, going out of her way to make sure all our needs were addressed. It was and is a pleasure to know the Team and Patsy and we will ensure to keep contact. We highly recommend the Kirsten Mason Team and Patsy to anyone looking to sell or purchase a residence of any description. Thank You!
Ron & Lynne
It was great to work with Kirsten. I interviewed 2 realtors before deciding to go with Kirsten. She had come recommended, but I like to do my own research, and base my decision on how compatible we will be. This is a very important factor for me. I am very busy and frankly don’t have time to listen to realtors blab on, especially about themselves….this certainly isn’t the case with Kirsten….I believe she truly understands her clients needs. She is very professional and has a great handle on her territory, and is very knowledgeable! Kirsten helped me to sell my condo in a very timely manner, offered her experience and listened to my concerns…her and her team kept me appraised to what was going on at all steps in the process. There is a chance I will move to the Kamloops area in the future and I will definitely be calling on Kirsten to help me find the perfect retirement home!!
Call the Kirsten Mason Team!!
Accommodating, Caring & Nice People
The Kirsten Mason Team is accommodating , caring and above all nice people.
In our case we listed just prior to Thanksgiving, initial showings are very important however, we had made family plans for Thanksgiving. Kirsten's assistants who arrange showings went out of their way to accommodate our needs to fit in showings when convenient to us.
Patsy Skene who coordinated the sale of our residence as well as the purchase of our new home went out of her way to meet our various needs and requests. Whether it was in the evening or on weekends she would take time out of her life to accommodate our various requests, with her everlasting smiling happy personality.
Thru-out the whole process Kirsten Mason kept in touch with us to ensure our needs were met.
Anyone who wishes for the sale or purchase of a home to be a pleasant experience should definitely consider using the Kirsten Mason Team.
Wayne & Patricia
Professional, Informative, Fun, and Outstanding!
Working with Kirsten was AMAZING. She listed our home for Top Dollar and we sold within 24 hours!! Professional, informative, fun, and outstanding at what she does!! We HIGHLY recommend Kirsten Mason and her Team to ANYONE looking to sell their home or purchase a new one. We are so confident knowing we made the right decision choosing Kirsten to sell our home!! Thank you Kirsten!!
Jill & Tony
Courteous & Enthusiastic
I could not have asked for a more courteous, helpful, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic Realtor as Jennifer. I was very pleased and satisfied with all aspects of her abilities and guidance through my property search. She respected my questions and expectations, she displayed excellent professionalism, was very kind, and was fun to meet and deal with. Thank you again to Jennifer , and thank you to Kirsten Mason Team!
Recommend To Anyone
Kirsten did an amazing job selling our home in 10 days! Kirsten and her entire team are very professional and do a great job in communicating showings and providing feedback. I would recommend her to anyone buying or selling a home.
Pam & Brian
Couldn't Be Happier!
Thank you Kirsten for making this very sad time in our lives smooth and bearable. You really looked after our needs and those of the prospects coming through my mother’s home. We can’t thank you enough for everything. It was such a short time on the market and we believe that is because of the way you market your listings. We couldn’t be happier with the results!!
Charlene & David
Meryl is an amazing real estate agent! She went beyond the call of duty for us. She helped us with all our requests for help and became a very important asset to our family. She is the BEST! We can not thank her enough!
Cheryl & Ken
She made the journey of selling and buying a pleasant experience. Lisa was always ready and willing to put her clients interest first. She is totally professional and gets the job done. From the open house to her regular updates on all viewings. I will defiantly be referring Lisa to my clients.
Caroline and James
She is Awesome!
We were getting ready to sell our house in Knutsford and had been to see our Mortgage Broker. We had never used a Realtor before and didn’t know where to start. Our Mortgage Broker suggested Patsy & that’s where it all began. Patsy was amazing and was on top of everything that needed to be done. She worked tirelessly to sell our house, and when it did, we were so happy.
With the next step of buying a home, we don’t know what we would have done without Patsy. She showed us so many beautiful homes and was really patient with us. I wanted ‘the perfect home’, and Patsy worked non-stop; on holidays and after hours trying to find us that home. I am excited to say that we are happily in our new home, all thanks to Patsy and her hard work. She is our Realtor, but has also become our friend. I would highly recommend her! She is awesome at what she does and you can sure tell she enjoys it. Thank you Patsy & The Kirsten Mason Team!
Sheldon & Theresa
Does Not Push
Your group is very enjoyable to work with. Lisa is very patient and understanding and does not push for the quick sales….a trait that is getting lost by other sales associates. If someone is looking for a residential sales agent, I will strongly recommend Lisa.
Wayne & Angie
Friendly & Kind
Friendly, kind team. Made you comfortable and informed. Easy to work with.
Jolene & Ken
It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Lisa. She was professional , knowledgeable, and always went above and beyond. She updated me every step of the way and paid attention to all the little details that I missed or failed to see in the process of buying my new home. She is a class act. I have referred Lisa to friends and will continue to refer her to friends and family in the future. She is an excellent choice.
Thank you very much Kirsten for all your hard work in selling our place at the lake. You were available at all times to answer any questions we had. We would highly recommend you to anyone buying or selling property. Again, thank you for a job well done!
Roy & Renate
Step by Step
This was our very first home purchase, and we were very pleased with Trudy's services. She was patient and knowledgeable with all our questions, and never made us feel rushed or pressured. She explained step by step what we'd be encountering in a purchase, which helped us so much. We'd be very happy to recommend her to anyone buying or selling.
Nigel and Laurie
Meryl Grant was a great and helpful Realtor. She kept us updated during the full process when we were selling our home and she even came to us when we couldn't drive to her. We recommend her for buying or selling any property. She did a excellent job!
Doug & Carol
Kirsten made the experience of selling my home feel so easy. She was always there for me to answer any questions I had, and could get back to me immediately. She markets your residence everywhere, and has great marketing skills. Kirsten is definitely is the best Realtor I have ever had, and I've bought and sold many homes.
Will Call Again
Meryl Grant was our realtor. Our home was sold very quickly and we were very pleased with the care that was taken regarding the sale.
We would definitely recommend Meryl to anyone wishing to sell or buy, and would not hesitate to call her again.
Jean & Tom
Lisa was always available to answer all our questions. She is extremely knowledgeable & really cared about selling our home. We couldn't have found a better Realtor! She kept us updated every step of the way & made sure every detail was taken care of. She went the extra mile on many occasions. Our home sold quickly & for a great price. We highly recommend her to everyone! She is so committed & a delightful person.
We would like to say working with Lisa was very enjoyable! She was very thorough and professional with the purchase of our cabin! She made sure we were notified as soon as any changes were made. We will recommend her for future purchases to friends and family! Thanks!
Rod & Michelle
Meryl was always very proactive to everything that needed to be done during the purchase of our new home. She is very knowledgeable and helpful.......thanks so much!
Jim & Debbie
Recommend to Anyone
Meryl was great to work with. She got the job done no matter what time of day. We appreciate that she shared her knowledge of Kamloops and the properties we viewed openly, as it was very helpful in our decision. We would recommend her to anyone needing Real Estate services.
Peter & Celine
Patsy was completely amazing from the start, getting our house listed, beautiful pictures and a sign in the yard in no time. Patsy's advice and recommendations were always very accurate and helpful. The search for a new home however was no easy task. Patsy never hesitated when showing us listings all over Kamloops, even when we were, at times, becoming very discouraged. Patsy was always very cognizant of what we wanted, completely honest, always finding answers to our questions, staying in touch and even picking us up when we had a flat tire! Patsy is very professional and works tirelessly, often going above and beyond on absolutely everything! We would not hesitate to recommend Patsy to family and friends and would have her as our realtor again should the need arise. Thank you Patsy for your patience and a job well done in helping us to sell our house and buy a new home that we love!
Bob & Wendy
Trudy is fabulous to work with! I chose Trudy as a realtor after two other family members utilized her serves. I would (and will!) highly recommend Trudy. She is very knowledgeable about the market, honest, and reliable.
Meryl was great. She gave us patient, thoughtful service.
Max & Nora
Thank you Everyone
We would like to express our sincere thank you to the Kamloops and District Association and most especially, Century 21 Desert Hills Realty. A thank you also goes out to the Kirsten Mason Team and all the people involved in the selling process. More importantly, we would like to mention a special thank you to Patsy Skene for being so kind, patient, hardworking, understanding, and for always being there when needed. You are one of a kind and a much appreciated person. We wish you all the best future successes in your businesses.
Boni & Mary
Trudy was awesome and I look forward to working with her in the future.
It was a pleasure working with Lisa. She understood what we wanted in a Realtor, giving us lots of feedback and suggestions for selling our home. Lisa was responsive to our needs and maintained a positive attitude at all times. She instilled confidence and assured us that we would sell our home quickly and at the right price point.
Allison and Kale
Flexible Showing Schedule
Jen was excellent to deal with and would let me know quickly when houses that met my needs came on the market. She was also very flexible and able to work around my busy work schedule.
Positive & Knowledgeable
From the moment I met her I knew she was the right Realtor. She was so positive and knowledgeable. She made my wife and I feel very relaxed while both our deals were happening. When I was stressed out and worried, Kirsten would calm me down. Before she could even get the SOLD sign up for our home, she had found us a new one! Way to go Kirsten Mason Team!!!!!
Honest, Caring, Professional
A friend recommended that I give Kirsten a call to list my house. From the onset, Kirsten was on top of things. She worked through all the paperwork with us, explaining all parts of the process openly, honestly and thoroughly. The house was listed quickly, and marketed with all the online tools available. Our sale was very quick and very smooth. She went out of her way to set us at ease with her great sense of humour and confidence that she could help us find a new place we liked. She worked hard to show us places that matched our criteria and within three weeks, we had successfully relocated here in town. I would highly recommend Kirsten as she is a wonderfully honest, caring, professional Realtor.
Professional and Down-to-Earth
Kirsten and her Team were fantastic to work with during the sale of my home and the purchase of a new one. The Team contacted me every time someone wanted to view the house and provided feedback from the showings. Kirsten was always quick to answer any questions and was readily available to show me places that fit my 'must have' list. I always felt like I was a top priority. The Kirsten Mason Team sold my house and had me in my new place in less than a month. I highly recommend Kirsten and her Team if you are looking to buy or sell!
Top Notch Agent
Have used Patsy 3 times now. She is patient, never wastes my time with listings outside my price range, and makes appropriate suggestions. Hardworking, efficient, and no non-sense. I highly recommend her to any one looking for a top notch agent.
I have had nothing but amazing service and superb professionalism from Lisa. She made our out of town search for a new house so easy. I was not an easy person to make happy, and the more we saw of the handpicked ones she chose for us, we knew she had us on the right track. She helped us find our wonderful house in Pineview. She took the extra step to call us several times during the last two weeks of our closing date to see how things were going. We were impressed by her attention to us...even after the sale had been achieved. She even had a gift for us in the house when we came in on moving day. I would recommend Lisa for anyone looking for a house here because to her, you are more than just a client. Thank you Lisa for your sweet manner and persistence in finding our new home.
Michelle & Mike
We found Kirsten to be very professional and dedicated to her job. She has an outstanding Team who worked with her during the marketing of our residence. We have purchased and sold many homes in BC and Saskatchewan and Kirsten's knowledge of the market left us with confidence that our house was going to be sold. She represents her clients and their interests in a manner that instills a positive working environment. We were impressed to find during our listing that there is no binding contact holding you into a sales agreement, thus putting the needs of the client before those of the business. Kirsten’s team doesn’t forget it’s your home being sold – not theirs. I have recommended Kirsten to a family member who is selling his residence now.
Great Grasp on Housing Market
My residence sold and I had to purchase a new home quickly. My narrow time line also included a holiday I had planned a year earlier. Lisa understood this and went above and beyond to set up viewings on very short notice, and at times that worked around my job. Lisa was very dedicated to finding me a new home, and had a great grasp on the housing market as well as the positives/negatives of the different areas of the city. When something needed to be clarified on a home, Lisa found out the information promptly - no matter what time of the day. Lisa, you represented the Kirsten Mason Team in a very professional manner and I am impressed with you and your office staff’s abilities. Lisa, thank you for all the commitment, work, and time you put into finding me my new home which met all my needs. It was appreciated!
Over & Beyond
Meryl is a great agent, she went over and beyond to get the property we wanted, and also worked after hours to get the paper work done very fast as we wanted to leave for our holiday. We will use her again when the time comes to sell a property we have.
What an Amazing Team!
As first time homebuyers we had no idea where to start. Kirsten put us at ease, and took the fear out of home buying. She helped us to figure out not only what we wanted, but also what would work in our budget and then made it her mission to find us the perfect place. It was no surprise that she knew which house was the one for us before we did. After finding us a house, Kirsten and her Team made the rest easy. From negotiations to paperwork and financing, whenever there was a question her and her team had the answers. Kirsten and Team, you are all truly amazing and we can’t thank you enough for finding us our first home!
Greg & Noeleane
Stress Free & Exciting!
Lisa proved to be an amazing Real Estate Agent who restored our faith in Realtors after a few previously failed attempts. Lisa took the time to really get to know us as a family, what our needs were, and how best she could make this a smooth transition for us. Which is exactly what she did! Not once did she push us when decisions needed to be made but gave us all of the facts and waited for us to absorb the information so that we were confident with how things were proceeding. Not once did it feel like Lisa was there to 'make a sale' but that she was there to help us and so when it came time to buy our new house we could not think of a more wonderful partner to assist us. And assist us she did! She was so patient and understanding and urged us to take our time to make this big decision and even helped us see our new home multiple times so that we again had all of the confidence that we could have asked for. I would, and constantly do, highly recommend Lisa as you will find that she makes selling and buying your home stress free and exciting!
Linda & Steve
Knowledgeable & Professional
My sister and I first contacted Kristen in September. We needed help in assessing the value of my parents' house, information about the process, and costs involved. She was very knowledgeable and professional even though we didn't know when the house would be ready to go on the market. When the house was ready to sell we were updated on a regular basis and communication was always prompt and clear. My sister and I would not hesitate to recommend Kristen and her team. Well done!
Cathy & Jean
Warm & Friendly Nature
As first time home buyers and new to Kamloops we were both excited and nervous about purchasing our first house together. Trudy was there every step of the way and was incredibly patient with us as we explored almost every area of town; we looked at a lot of houses! Trudy's warm and friendly nature really helped put us at ease with the home buying experience, and her knowledge and expertise was apparent. She was always available for any questions or concerns we had. When we finally found the perfect house for us, Trudy did a great job of negotiating the price and conditions. We would definitely recommend Trudy and the Kirsten Mason Team!
Amanda & Devin
Thanks for Everything!
We are loving our new home! Thanks so much for everything, including keeping us calm throughout the whole process!
Down to Earth
Thanks for everything u were the best, down to earth realtor I've had the pleasure to deal with. I will be passing on your name to friends and family for a long time.
Pleasant & Enjoyable
When we moved to Kamloops we had no idea who we might like to have as a realtor. We asked a few new friends and chose Trudy. She was described as a friendly, relaxed realtor who would listen to what we wanted and find it for us. That is exactly what she did. We are now living in our dream home thanks to her! Every step of the process was pleasant and enjoyable. Trudy was timely and diligent with a calm demeanor that put us at ease with our house deal. We have since recommended her to friends who are looking to buy right away and also to friends who are just curious about the possibilities of a new neighborhood. We will continue to send business her way when we can and wish her, her family, and her team all the best!
Angie & Robin
Amazing to Deal With
Kirsten and Trudy have helped us sell our beginner home and purchase our dream home. In a very short and sweet time period!!! One our family will never grow out of! They were absolutely amazing to deal with on a regular basis. I forsee continuous success with future and returning buyers and sellers with the Kirsten Mason Team. Thank you so much again both of you.
Brett & Leanna
Owning a home and living in another town 2hrs away was a challenge for us. After having rented our place out for the last 3 years with headache after headache...we decided to sell. So we left it empty and crossed our fingers for a quick sale. Kirsten Mason was a blessing in disguise with providing everything we needed and a fast sale. Always very informative and a go getter. We would definitely recommend her if your looking for top quality on a sale for your house. Thank you again to Kirsten for everything :)

Meryl was amazing. It took us a year to find a house and Meryl was so patient showing us a lot of houses and putting up with our pickiness and frustrations until we found exactly what we wanted. We would recommend her to anyone.
Todd & Janice
Our experience with Kirsten as our real estate agent was very positive. She and her team handled the sale of our house with outstanding proficiency.

Personable & Approachable
Jennifer is very personable and approachable. She was able to direct me in all of my many questions to the answers I wanted. We learned together about ins and outs of finding and buying a Mobile Home. Thank you Jennifer, for helping my husband and I buy our very first home.

Two Thumbs Up
The things that impressed us most about Kirsten Mason were her exceptional communication and organization skills. We were pleased to receive timely updates during every step of our purchase, even when there was no change yet in the status of our deal. In other words, she never left us hanging. Kirsten stayed on top of things by making arrangements for things like signing of contracts, subject removals and keys on possession day before we ever even thought to ask. Dealing with such a competent and hard working realtor really takes the stress out of buying or selling a home. Some of the credit goes towards her support staff working hard behind the scenes. Two thumbs up for the Kirsten Mason Team!
Tony & Sandy
We would have no qualms about recommending Kirsten and her team anyone, including our nearest and dearest. Kirsten and her team helped my parents sell and find their dream retirement home last year and now have done the same for us. From the date of sale on our previous home we found ourselves with only 3 weeks to go before finding ourselves homeless. Kirsten and her team came though in a big way. Not only did Kirsten find us the perfect home, but managed to get us possession on the same day we had to vacate our previous home. Kirsten and her team went way beyond the extra mile working late into several nights, coordinating between our lawyer, and mortgage broker as well as obtaining a home inspection and roofing quote. All while working around our difficult shift schedules. We hope we never have to move again, but if we do, Kirsten will be the first person we call.
Denny & Candace
Wouldn't Use Anyone Else
We always felt in good hands with Meryl. After viewing many possibilities, we ended up deciding on a newly constructed home and this came with some complications. Meryl worked with us every step of the way and we really appreciated her guidance and support through the process. We would not hesitate to recommend Meryl.
Rob & Jeneva
We have used realtors for previous home purchases in other cities but the experience we had with Lisa was the best by far. Lisa carefully gauged our responses to each home we viewed and asked for our feed back to narrow the search to the perfect home. Then she made sure the purchase was carried out without any hitches and made sure the offer was comprehensive with no grey areas. We are very pleased with Lisa and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home here.
Trudy was great, she was always available for any questions and went the extra mile to help us find out information on the home we were purchasing. She and the Kirsten Mason Team had our other home sold inside of 3 weeks also! Everything went so fast it made our heads spin but Trudy made everything go seamlessly. She also gave us a house warming gift that was incredibly thoughtful and useful! Thanks so much, we are very appreciative of the work you did for us.
Jenn & Jamie
We are first time home buyers and our experience with Meryl was fantastic. She was always available and set up viewings very efficiently. She was very helpful and patient when answering all of our new home buyer questions. I would definitely recommend her.

Straight Honest Opinion
Working with Meryl was not only stress free but also very rewarding. My boyfriend and I are now first time home owners and are very thankful that Meryl was able to find us exactly what we were looking for in a very short period. We never felt pressured and always got a straight honest opinion. We were given a bundle full of options which made house hunting very enjoyable! Thank-you so much Meryl and to the Kirsten Mason Team for working with us and being a part of our journey!

After having our home listed for a full year with another agent with no action, we switched to the Kirsten Mason Team. That was the best decision we made: good suggestions, a broad understanding who is looking to buy in Kamloops, and practical advice to help us realize the best price possible. Once an offer was on the table, Kirsten did not stop working until the deal was done. When my son purchased a house in Kamloops recently, he automatically turned to the Kirsten Mason Team, again with a great outcome! Thank you Kirsten and team.

Refreshing & Direct
We immediately liked Kirsten the second we met her. There was something very refreshing in her direct approach to people and real estate that makes her such a successful realtor. Kirsten is so easy-going and down to earth, she made the tumultuous highs and lows of buying & selling a house seem a little less scary and stress-free. When something didn’t go the way we were hoping, Kirsten’s calm demeanor made it easy to get to the next step with no stressing! Kirsten and her “Dream Team” went above and beyond what any other real-estate team has done for us in the past. When we moved into our new home, Kirsten even went as far as cleaning out our fridge for us! Thank you Kirsten Mason and Team, we love our new house!
Dan & Angela
The service and personal attention our family received from Kirsten Mason was exceptional. Most importantly she was incredibly knowledgeable as to the local market and patient with our buying needs through this life changing move. Whether your buying or selling, we would highly recommend Kirsten Mason to guide you through the process.
I found Kirsten to be a top notch professional every time we needed to interact. She did what needed to be done with no hesitation in order to get my home sold. I would not hesitate to use Kirsten again if I needed to buy or sell a home.
The Kirsten Mason team was great to work with! They provided continuous updates regarding market trends, the progress of my listing and also presented a very professional looking MLS listing. In addition, Kirsten is very savvy with social media so my listing got great coverage in other areas also. In the end the Kirsten Mason team sold my home! I highly recommend the Kirsten Mason team.
I met Kirsten a few years ago when she aided my mother with downsizing into a smaller home. Her warm, fun and positive attitude won us over. Then, to when big money was on the table, to now (with my first home purchase), Kirsten was easy going, direct, focused and never made me feel like I wasn’t a top priority. When she lined up places for us to see, she would open the doors and turn on lights, but let me look around with no pressure or selling of features. I found that her approach took the stress right out of the first time buying process. She was easy to give her opinion when asked and helped me narrow it down in no time. She is knowledgeable of market prices, areas and is a keen negotiator. Whenever we have friends, family or clients looking to buy or sell, we are sure to send them Kirsten’s way!
We Achieved Our Goal
There are always things that could have gone smoother with any operation as complex as the sale and purchase of a new home. But we are very happy to say that the services provided by Kirsten and her team were not one of those things. Throughout the sales process we were kept informed of how the market was changing, and how that effected our home. Potential buyers kept coming to look at and eventually buy our home of 21 years. Finding our new place was equally painless. Kirsten and her team were cooperative, prompt, and professional at every stage. They helped us refine our expectations and match them with what the market had to offer. Financially, we achieved our goal of a break-even move. In fact, we did better than that, thanks in no small part to Kirsten's advice and steadfastness in negotiating the deals. I would certainly recommend Kirsten and her team to anyone contemplating buying or selling property in Kamloops.

I highly recommend Trudy.
Thanks for all your great work Trudy!

BEST Realtor in Kamloops!
I am very pleased to submit the following testimonial regarding Lisa Villamo and our home purchase experience. The first thing that drew us to the Kirsten Mason Team and Desert Hills Realty was the user friendly web site where we could view MLS listings without giving all of our personal information. As I navigated the site and the decision for our move became final, I realized this was the Realty Company I would like to work with and I registered as a buyer on their site. This gave me access to a lot of information about the properties we were interested in. I called and spoke to Realtor, Lisa Villamo who made herself available to us for an entire weekend (which stretched out to many, many, additional days). Lisa gleaned information from us and truly listened to us which resulted in narrowing our search to the most appropriate properties. Lisa made certain we were comfortable during our search during the very warm month of August, supplying cold water bottles, etc. She welcomed my daughter, son-in-law, sister and other family members on our many viewings. When it came time to make an offer, Lisa assisted us with “fair market values”, days on the market, city by-laws, right of ways, encroachments, etc. Lisa had an innate ability to foresee and solve problems and she was quick to sense any apprehensions and concerns we had. When I was determined not to spend the money on a home inspection for such a recently built house (9 yrs), Lisa was able to give me sound advice on the risks which helped me make my decision to have one done. The home inspection led to several repairs which the sellers were happy to complete and which saved us money in the end. The repairs far outweighed the cost of the inspection. Once our offer was accepted, we asked for changes regarding closing date and possession date. Lisa worked hard for us to get the sellers to be able to accommodate our requests. On move in day, along with the keys, Lisa arrived with a wonderful gift (much appreciated). During this process, Lisa has met many of our family members, listened to our stories, and truly has become a wonderful friend as well as a realtor who I will recommend to family members, friends and anyone else I meet in need of the BEST Realtor in Kamloops!
Thanks for the opportunity to provide this information regarding our experience with Lisa Villamo and the Kirsten Mason Team.
Brad and Lee
We very much appreciated Kirsten's attentiveness and patience! This was our first home buying experience and Kirsten was amazing in guiding us through the process and giving us the information and time we needed to make the right decision. I would recommend Kirsten to any new home buyer and will use her again when we're ready to sell our first home!
provided us with during our move to Kamloops. Not only did she assist
us with purchasing our new home, she also helped us with finding a
realtor to sell our old home. Kirsten was always available to answer
our questions and show us houses even when our requests were last
minute. She was excellent at communicating with us and a lot of fun
to work with. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to others.
Thanks again, so much; she was a lifesaver.
Thank you so much for going above and beyond our expectations! You and your team made our first home buying experience a wonderful and easy one. You were so fast at getting back to us on all the questions we had, Thanks again for all your help.
We came house hunting over the Christmas holidays from Red Deer Alberta. Kirsten was very friendly and nice and we felt comfortable with her right away. She went far and beyond what we would have expected from her, and she made the transition from province to province easier on us. She helped us find our dream home and we are forever grateful. We would absolutely recommend Kirsten to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
I had the pleasure of working with Kirsten Mason and her assistant Crystal on the sale of my father’s condo in Kamloops. Living on the West Coast, I knew that I would need a realtor who was willing to work closely with me and support me when I was not able to be in Kamloops to deal with matters firsthand. What impressed me most when I interviewed Kirsten was her understanding of my situation and her willingness to do whatever needed to be done to help me through it. Kirsten and Crystal were wonderful and worked hard to make the sale of the condo as smooth and quick as possible. They kept me fully informed with regard to showings and feedback from buyers and always responded quickly to emails and phone calls. Kirsten advised me on offers and how best to handle them. In addition, she checked mail, made arrangements for cleaning services, plumbers and other tradespeople, and never once hesitated in assisting me in dealing with all of the countless details involved in selling a home. Selling my father’s home was difficult but Kirsten’s understanding and professionalism made it a much less stressful situation to have to deal with. I highly recommend Kirsten to work with you in buying or selling your home.
I worked with Ellysa, a member of The Kirsten Mason Team, and she was great! I have had bad experiences with Realtors in the past, but I was very happy to deal with Ellysa. She always took the time to call me, not text. In my opinion if you don't have the time to talk to me you don't have time for my business. She was very accommodating to my schedule. I lived out of town and worked a lot, and she always made time for me, even if it was supper time or on a Sunday. I will definitely recommend her to anyone I know looking to purchase a home.
As a first time buyer, I was walking into buying my first home blind. I was encouraged by a handful of friends to call Kirsten. When I met with her she seemed to know exactly what I was looking for in a very short time and with few questions asked! After only a few hours and half a dozen houses, "there it was" my first home! Unfortunately buying a home isn't just about shopping! So when it came down to the nitty-gritty and dealing with the lenders and legalities, Kirsten stepped right in and went above and beyond her regular duties as a Realtor! She became my lifeline for 2 months and I was and will be forever grateful. I am now in my new home and loving it every day! As a business owner and someone who works closely with clients on a daily basis, my number one belief and something I will always feel strongly about is that we owe it to our clients to listen and be honest and real always! Kirsten exceeded those qualities and for that I am grateful and would recommend her services to everyone I meet! Thank you Kirsten :)
Diligent & Courteous
We just want to let you know how happy we were with the service we received from Bryce Podorieszach, a member of the Kirsten Mason Team. He worked diligently on our behalf to find the perfect house for our needs. He was accommodating and courteous and went the extra mile to make things go smoothly. We would highly recommend Bryce to anyone looking for a hard working and knowledgeable Realtor.
Stan & Laura
Thank you Kirsten
Kirsten and her team are wonderful. I enjoyed my home buying experience and was glad to have Kirsten along side me. We found the perfect home for my family. She went far beyond my expectations as what a realtor should do for a client. Kirsten is a very honest,caring and understanding person. I have already recommended her to several people, including family.
Can't Say Enough!
Kirsten is very down to earth and easy to talk to. She lent an ear when I needed one and helped me find and purchase the home that suited my needs at this time. She didn’t sway me to purchase one just because she had listed it, she actually considered what was best for me. She understood the timeline in which I needed to find a place and she promised me that no matter what happened with the one that I initially wanted, we would find something else equal if not better. She made sound recommendations in negotiations, offered a much needed overview of the process which was needed, recommended other people that I needed to help me and each person was amazing as well. I gave her my requirements and she found the place and I moved in all within 2 weeks. She gets it done! Huge appreciation. I can’t say enough about her and her team, they are awesome!
Exceptional Work Ethic
Thank you so much Kirsten for your exceptional work ethic in selling our house. From start to finish you did an excellent job for us that we will always appreciate and would highly recommend you to everyone we know. You bring a very personal touch to your clients that makes them feel that they are in good hands with you. In a situation that was very stressful for us you had a way of calming our fears and making our dreams come true..................thank you so much!!!!
Jeannie and Terry
Everything Was Fantastic!
Everything went very well with the purchase and Kirsten was fantastic. I was very impressed with her business savvy and integrity in doing things right and keeping her commitment to customer satisfaction. She went the "extra mile" with me several times, and always honoured her word, even though I know how busy she was at times.
She is Amazing...
Kirsten was my Agent in the purchase of my new home. She handled everything professionally and honestly. I thought Kirsten was amazing and I would definitely use her again!
Recommend her to anyone...
My husband and I flew in to Kamloops from Ontario with only a week to find a house. Kirsten dedicated 2 full days of house hunting to us. She chauffeured us around the city and did an excellent job of describing each area, pointing out schools and various amenities. Kirsten quickly learned what type of house we prefer which is the sign of a good realtor! She knew of a house that was coming on the market and arranged for us to see it before the sign even went up. That was the one we ended up buying. There were a few challenges along the way due to the tight timeline, but Kirsten made it happen. She even met us at the airport on our way home to sign the agreement papers!! It was a pleasure spending time with Kirsten, she is very knowledgeable, confident and good at her job. We would highly recommend her to anyone.
Virika and Dustin

More than we asked for
We couldn't have asked for a better Realtor! Just can't thank you enough.
Kay & Jenn
Kirsten was really amazing right from the initial information package through to closing the sale. Her process is very well organized and we were kept well informed throughout on progress and options available for achieving our objective. Many thanks for a job well done!
Happy First Time Home Buyers
As first time home buyers, we learned that Kirsten Mason is exactly the kind of Realtor you want to have by your side during the process. From the beginning, she helped us to develop our 'wish-list', critically view properties and navigate our way through the real estate market. Kirsten provided expert advice and support until we found exactly the right home for us. We are so appreciative and will highly recommend her service to others.
Melanie & Steve
I have bought and sold several houses over the years and you have been the best agent I have ever dealt with.
Teri & Vince
Happy Past Client
As a past client, I am very happy with the client service provided by Kirsten Mason: pleasant, efficient, helpful, friendly and professional.
Kirsten Mason was outstanding to work with. She guided us through the home buying process with excellent advice and kept us on the path to finding our new home. She was down to earth and she never pushed us at any time into make a buying decision. Kirsten will be someone we keep in touch with for a long time and we will recommend her highly to anyone.
Pam & Chris
Found the Perfect Home
Kirsten was great to work with and it felt like she was always interested in fulfilling our dream of buying the perfect house. I was confident in her abilities and never had to worry about a thing. Thanks to Kirsten we are finally homeowners. She didn't just find us a house, she found us a home that we love.
Mike and Janet
2 in Four Months!
Thank you Kirsten! You made the selling of two houses in four months feel easy. The sales went smoothly and painlessly. When we got married this spring and looked at selling two homes and combining our families into one the task seemed overwhelming. Kirsten handled both sales with skill, knowledge, lots of humor and professionalism. She took the stress out of the transactions and kept us current with the activities occurring with our properties without over-burdening us. We can't thank you enough for helping us through this potentially stressful time and making it occur smoothly.
Anne and Ted
I Will Never Switch Realtors
I would like to thank you for all your help in helping me purchase my new home. Over the months that i spent time house shopping with you, you made the experience one I will never forget. Your positive attitude and glowing personality are exactly what is required for someone in your position. I will never switch realtors, as long as I live in Kamloops. I look forward to doing business with you again.
It Was A Pleasure!
Working with Kirsten was a pleasure! As we were relocating to Kamloops from another city, it was crucial that we had all the information we needed in order to make an informed decision about our home purchase. From the very beginning, she was very well organized and prompt, always responding to our emails and inquiries quickly and professionally. Kirsten is very knowledgeable about the city and was happy to share her expertise with us. With us having a limited time to view homes, she observed our likes/dislikes closely and made appointments accordingly. In the end, we purchased a home that Kirsten suggested we view based on what she had learned about us after only one day of house shopping together. Thanks Kirsten!
