Ole’s Listings

  • "Ole and his team were superb! Everything went perfectly to plan: from formulating sales strategy, to finalizing the terms & conditions of the sale, to navigating our way through some challenges due to the global pandemic, to following up with the usual niggly post-move items. We really appreciated Ole's deep knowledge of the market in general and the neighbourhood specifics. I highly recommend him to anyone in the Victoria market."

The community, and the real estate and rental property management industries, are fortunate in having people like Ole and David represent them."
