On November 9th 2011, Mike and I started a new chapter in our book of life. "selling of house" We didn't realize just how emotionally hard it was going to be. However, we had THE two most AMAZING realtors with us through out the WHOLE process. They had to be the most honest, caring and hardest workers I have ever met. If you are ever in the market to either buy or sell a house in the Kelowna area, I HIGHLY suggest you call Jason Neumann and Trever Florko from Century 21. They were there for US 110 % ALL the time. No one will ever know what we went through to sell our house in Kelowna but the work these two men did was above and beyond! Easter weekend we had two offers and I am so happy to say that today, May 15th, 2012, the house is officially SOLD :)

Hi Trever,

Thank you so much for going that extra mile.  Being out of town and not knowing what I was dealing with you really came through with taking video's of all the homes.  Thanks for putting me in contact with all the proper Kelowna contacts I needed.  That really put me at ease, having your expertise helping me every step of the way. Love the homework list, you should post that for all people completing a purchase. I will always use your service for all future home purchases.

Sincerely, Judy

Trevor was great to deal with, he listened to our needs, and found us the home we were looking for at a reduced cost! Trevor was not a pushy Real estate agent, he was patient, knowledgeable, and always had our best interest in mind. I would recommend Trevor whether you need to find a home or sell a home in the Kelowna area.

Trever,

Thank you for helping us find a home that has everything we were looking for. You made the process of selling the condo and buying our first home so easy and worry free. We were very happy when the condo sold after being on the market for only a few weeks and for a such a great price! We would not have been able to get the house we wanted without your amazing negotiating skills. If we hear of anyone looking to buy or sell their home we won't hesitate in recommending you.

Having had several bad experiences with realtors, I was very skeptical when a friend of mine suggested Trevor to me. After meeting him and having him be really non-pressuring I figured I'd give him a try. I gave only the most vague in required details (3 bedrooms, between Ellison and westbank and it had to be detached) by the time I got home from work he had already sent me roughly 80 listings that fit that description. I then gave him more details. He has set up automated email listing for anything that gets posted to MLS that fits my criteria. He is well kept, polite, professional and very accommodating. I would and have already recommended Trevor to people I know who are looking to sell or buy. He has given me a new hope for real estate agents.

Hey Trever,

Thank you for helping us find a home that has everything we were looking for. You made the process of selling the condo and buying our first home together so easy and worry free. We were very happy when the condo sold after being on the market for only a few weeks and for a such a great price! We would not have been able to get the house we wanted without your amazing negotiating skills. If we hear of anyone looking to buy or sell their home we won't hesitate in recommending you.Shannon & Matt

Thank you Trever for making our home search something we could handle!  You were the only realtor who contacted us about a property inquiry who stayed with us once we informed them we were at the very beginning of our search and we hadn't sold our own place yet. You asked the necessary questions without ever being pushy,  informed and educated  us about Kelowna and were very prompt with getting back to us with the many questions we had! We appreciate all of the work you did for us considering so much of it was done with a lot of distance between us during this entire process. You worked so hard to help us find what we were looking for, and to give us all the information we needed -good or bad. After what seemed like impossible odds, we find ourselves moving into the place we thought was beyond our reach. Thank you for giving us the information we needed, the odds of success and the tiniest bit of hope to pursue this purchase. Your sense of humor was a fantastic asset, and your patience while we made the trips out (with a baby in tow) was invaluable. We are very excited to be moving to Kelowna-thank you for getting us into not just a house, but a home!

Trever

Thanks you for being so easy to work with. Your  knowledge of the Kelowna area and real estate market sure came in handy while we were shopping for a new home not to mention all your advice! You let us know when we may have been making mistakes and kept us on track to find…in the end the perfect home! We are very excited to move in and swim in the new pool! Isn’t it funny in the end that we found such a great place and wrapped it all up so quickly! After putting in a whopping total of 4 offers on places we thought you might get sick of us and run for the hill! Thanks for you patients and again all your help…you truly are a great friend and Realtor!!

Hi Trever,

Thank you for your patience in helping us finally purchasing our home in Rutland.  You made negotiations painless for us; considering we live out of town.  We appreciate the information you found for us regarding the sump pump, central air conditioning etc.  Mostly we appreciated your honesty not to mention the many houses we dragged you through until we made up our minds and we love our house.  Its the perfect size, perfect area, culdesac for the kids and close to everything.  I must also add its not often a realtor answers his phone at anytime or any day.  Thank you so much for doing that. We will definitely recommend you!

Hey Trev!

Thanks for being so super patient with us while we hunted for the perfect place. I know our criteria was a bit more specific then you may normally get but we found it!!! Thanks for making the process easy and stress free. Thanks also for putting us in touch with a great mortgage broker. Karen Shale was a real treat to work with. Same goes for Vanessa DeDominicis from Pushor Mitchell…she was a very fun lawyer to work with. Who knew they existed! Haha;-) So thanks a bunch for everything and you can expect an invite to the housewarming party!!!

Hi Trever,

Sorry it has taken me so long to write you to thank you for all you have done. I am sure you know I have had my hands full with the renovations!! I just wanted to thank you again for getting me such an amazing deal on my house. I really do believe that I would have paid at least $30,000 dollars more for this place if you had not been the shrewd negotiator! Thanks too for finding this place for me. All in all this was the smoothest real estate transaction I have ever encountered and I truly feel that was because of your hard work. Thank you so much and I will be sending all my family your way in the future!

Hi Buddy,

I wanted to say thanks for finding me the perfect home and for doing so quickly! You weren’t kidding when you said “this is the one for you!” As soon as I walked in I knew that the place fit the bill. You were pretty freaking amazing when it came to negotiations as well…big huge thanks for that too. You said “no no no…don’t settle for that…lets try for one more thousand!” I’m glad we did! Now we have some cash for a nice house warming party!!! You are of course coming!

PS. I know we hit a few hairy moments before completion…thanks for keeping me posted on things…it freaked me out a little but like you said “every deal has its turbulence. I will steer us through this…just stay calm.” You landed the deal like a pro…thanks so much and see you at the party!!

Hi Trever,


We just wanted to thank you so much for your assistance in selling our home. As you know a quick sale was very important to us in this instance. My husband and I truly believe that your expertise in pricing our home was the sole reason it sold as fast as it did. The funny thing is that we hired you mainly for the extensive marketing you do…ha-ha…in the end you barely had a chance to show us what you could do! You said we would get an offer quickly but multiple offers in less than 24 hours after listing BLEW OUR MINDS!!! I will not hesitate to recommend you to any family or  friends who are planning any real estate related activities - it really was a pleasure to work with someone so professional. Thanks again from the whole family and please keep in touch…you were always good for a laugh or three!

My husband and I just moved to Kelowna last July 07, and we decided to purchase our very first house about a year later.  Being extremely naive with the house-buying process, we needed someone who was willing to take the time to explain every detail that was involved when searching for and purchasing a house.  Also, we wanted someone who had strong connections with other people in the business, and was able to give us reliable referrals, such as mortgage brokers and lawyers.  Lastly, we also needed someone whom we could trust and confide to, since buying a house could be a very personal thing.  Trever Florko was one such realtor and more.  He managed to meet all of our needs, and he was able to direct us to the appropriate people if he couldn't otherwise help us. Trever was constantly in-touch with us to make sure that everything was in place.  He always had your greatest interest in mind, including finding ways to save us money by reserving Century21's courtesy moving van for us to use.  Trever's sense of humor, calm demeanor and friendly personality were a plus, especially since this house-buying business could be quite stressful if not handled properly.  All in all, we're extremely satisfied with Trever's services, and we would certainly be happy to recommend him to our friends and family.

Hey Trever,


I just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your help with our first home purchase. I know you really went out of your way to get us the home we wanted. I still can't believe you drove down to Vancouver to wait in line with us at the condo. Having you there made us feel so much more at ease with the whole process and showed that you really do care about your clients. Having you at our side to answer questions and point out things we did not think of was great. Thanks again for all your help, information, patience, and most of all for saving us so much money!! We will definitely send all our family and friends your way when they selling or buying a home.


Appreciatively yours, the Mazureks.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

Thanks Trev!"

"Being first time home buyers was a scary thought but having Trever as our realtor made it more fun then I ever thought possible!! He was great to work with and treated us well. He kept us informed and was always honest with us about what we were getting into. He kept us relaxed with his sense of humour and he made us feel confident that we were making the right decisions. There were no surprises after the papers were signed. He was always professional and I have no doubt that he acted in our best interests. Trever spent many hours with us and never once got frustrated and he was always available no matter what time we bugged him. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone, and we look forward to selling out house with him in the future!!

Dear Trever,


Thank you so much for all your help finding me the perfect place to live. It was such a pleasure working with you and you made the task so easy that everything just seemed to fall into place. I really enjoyed our time together and your relaxed nature kept a stressful situation from feeling anything but. I will definitely point any one I know who is looking to deal in real estate to you. Thanks again and we will certainly be in touch.


Sincerely,  Charlene B.

To anyone considering hiring Trever to be your realtor... do it, you won't be sorry!


My name is Gene and I had my home at 870 Glenwood Avenue listed with an agent other then Trever for over 3 months with hardly any action and a lot of stress and confusion. One of my friends, seeing my frustration referred me to Trever. From the first moment we met, Trever made me feel at ease and let me know that he had some great ideas on how to better market my home. I had to leave for Vancouver and Trever took care of EVERYTHING. He sold my home in less then 2 weeks and got me more money then I had originally thought was possible! Being out of town you would think that I would have been apprehensive to leave my home in someone's care who I had just met. However Trever is such a genuine, down to earth and

professional person that I did not worry at all. He said he would do everything and I would not have to lift a finger. "Let me take care of everything" is what he said...and he did. He had a professional photographer take the greatest photos of my home. In fact everything Trever did was professional and over and above what any other agent has ever done for me in the past. He even watered my plants and brought in the papers and mail while I was away.

Please understand that I do not write letters like this for everyone. I was just so genuinely happy with Trever's performance and character that I felt that I needed to let others know that if they want their home sold, Trever is the man for the job. Best of luck, Trever and thanks so much for making my life easier when I was at the end of my rope.

Sincerely, Gene Watt

Thank God Trever was there!

My fiancée and I were purchasing our home together after months and months of searching. We finally found the house we wanted, but SURPRISE! It was only for sale by the owner.  Not only that, but there were some special circumstances involved with this home that would make the transaction more complex.  We told Trever about this house, and he was more than happy to work on our behalf, to do all the negotiations, and all the corresponding research and additional contacts necessary.  We were so thankful to have Trever to lean on during this deal, as there were some tough times  (not all realtors will take their time out of a conference for you to cry your eyes out to, and then leave that conference to jump into action to "just make everything okay!!").  Not only that, but there are so many additional concerns that come up when you are purchasing a home that is for sale by owner, that we would never have known about and could have potentially gotten us into an tough situation.  All in all Trever was there for us no matter what time of day it was (believe me, we sometimes still had him on the phone with us at 11:00 at night!), and no matter what tough times came up.  Trever was not only a great realtor to us, but a great friend as well.

Thank you Trever for all your hard work and understanding.

Trever;

If you are looking for a realtor who will be responsive to your needs as a buyer then we don't hesitate to recommend Trever. We purchased a house last summer and had to do so from a distance. Trever was very quick to respond to all of our requests for information and data on the local market. He was available when we needed him and worked well with other Realtors to ensure we were able to gather info and make visits on short notice.  He represented us very well through the purchase negotiations, and we were pleased with the results. Trever worked hard to make us happy clients. Well done!

RE: Website Activity.
Subject: What are you doing right on Century21.ca??

Hi Trever, Ed Kohler from WhereToLive.com here. I've noticed that your site within Century21.ca was one of the most popular in August. If you have a chance over the next day, could you reply with a couple points on what you're doing on Century21.ca that may be influencing your traffic numbers. Are you actively marketing your site? Have you put time into building out your bio? Use your blog? What about your listings? Are you doing anything special there? I hope you have time to help with this. I'll try to make it worth your time with some publicity during the conference in Ottawa. Funny how doing a bit of marketing helps, eh? Great job! For what it's worth, there were 683 unique visitors to your site last month. Considering how you're going about marketing your site, the average visitor is likely highly qualified since they're coming from listing ads and targeted AdWords ads. Quality traffic.

"Being an entire province away from where we intended on purchasing, can make things a bit more difficult. Jason was fantastic to work with. He went above and beyond what is usually required of a realtor and handled many details for us. In our search, he was patient and professional, understanding of our needs, and committed to helping us find exactly what we wanted within our budget. We did! When it came time to "seal the deal", Jason represented us fairly and professionally when we were unable to be there in person, giving us full reports of what was happening along the way. We would not hesitate to recommend Jason and his services to anyone. 

T & L

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

"Jason contacted myself and my wife about selling our condo in the Kelowna area after it had been off the market for over 6 months.  Since it was not listed at the time Jason offered to act as agent to both ourselves and the potential buyer.  When a REALTOR ® acts for both the buyer and seller one can’t wonder if you are truly getting an agent who is looking after your best interest.  Both my wife and I can tell you Jason’s professionalism put these thoughts to rest early on in the process. From a seller’s prospective Jason was very helpful in explaining everything that needed to be done and answered all of our questions.  Once the sale agreement was signed Jason made sure the process went smoothly so that we did not have to worry about anything.  His communication with us was outstanding and complete – right up to the end when we received our proceeds.  Jason is an extremely professional REALTOR ® and I would not hesitate to use his services again or recommend them to anyone wishing to buy or sell in the Kelowna area."

D & W

 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

"My husband and I would like to take this opportunity to commend Jason at having done an excellent job in helping us put our home on the market.  He spent the time advising us on what is the best price to market our home in comparison to others in our neighbourhood and informed us on the market activities in our area (even in a decelerated market). 

We listed our home in May and sold it in January.  Jason’s determination and commitment during the sale of our home has paid off.  Jason was always very courteous and dedicated and always worked for our benefit.  Not only did he sell our house but he helped find us another house to buy.  He is very trustworthy and honest.

We would recommend him for his expertise, experience and integrity.

Thank you again Jason!  We truly appreciate everything you have done for us." 

 C & G

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------

 

"We were very impressed with the Jason and the exceptional customer service he gave us.  From the research we had done we knew that he was passionate about his profession, community and clients.  Throughout our search for a home Jason made sure that we looked at all available options.  We were never shown anything that was out of our budget or didn`t fit our family`s needs.  Jason went out of his way to make the home buying process fun, enjoyable and with as minimal stress as possible.  We would definitely recommend for anyone to use Jason whether they are buying or selling a home."
