Outstanding realtor. Knowledgeable and a great negotiator

Victoria Holmes - November 27, 2018

I've purchased quite a few homes from other realtors, but Mimi is hands down the best realtor I've ever dealt with. She is completely honest and trustworthy, which to me is key. Mimi would never sell a property just to make a commission. She sold me a gem of a home last year that's already increased substantially in value in a mere twelve months. I will definitely be using Mimi to buy any and all future properties. Thank you Mimi!!

Octavio & Jasmine - October 21, 2018

Amazing realtor, and an amazing person. Couldn’t recommend her enough! She is amazing

Jon and Cheryl M - March 07, 2018

Mimi took the time to answer all our questions, did a superb job at marketing our property and her honest, down to earth nature made us feel comfortable and she definitely had our best interest at heart. She is honest, dependable, and very personable with years of experience, success and training behind her. The selling process is always a bit stressful, and she got us through the twists and turns with ease. We would most definitely refer Mimi to our friends and family in Victoria to assist in their home selling needs. Thanks again Mimi

Sheena and Graham - March 07, 2018

Mimi was honest, hard working and an amazing negotiator on both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. She always got back to us with prompt responses to every question we had. Even during the difficult times, she didn't sugar coat anything, but we knew she was always on our side. We would most definietly use Mimi in the future and recommend her to all our friends and family. Thanks again Mimi for all your hard work and efforts to make our sale and new purchase a success. We could not be happier.

Jacob Giles - September 09, 2017

Mimi made selling my condo one of the easiest job's i've ever had. Great communication with me on everything and explaining the whole process as it was my first time selling. Thanks again Mimi!

Christina S - July 30, 2017

Mimi was an absolute superstar! We were buyers in a crazy Victoria market and at no point did we feel pressured to go over our budget or settle for a property that wasn’t right for us. Mimi was very patient with us, yet she was persistent when we were ready to make an offer and she went to bat for use everytime. We trust Mimi’s advice and she was honest at every turn. We would not hesitate to use Mimi’s services again or recommend her to friends and family. Thank you, Mimi!

Mazzy M Macdonald - July 19, 2017

It was an absolute pleasure meeting and working with Mimi. I can unequivocally state that Mimi was outstanding in her role as a buyer’s agent. In fact, in all my years of buying and selling real estate, I have never met a realtor who is as efficient as Mimi. From our first meeting, she was highly professional, well organized, very knowledgeable of the market conditions, and had amazing interpersonal skills. Her attention to detail is quite unlike anything I have experienced before at the hands of a realtor. Mimi also follows up in a very timely fashion regarding all matters, regardless how large or small they are. She is thoughtful, helpful, and always looking for ways to improve the level of service she is offering. Mimi made buying real estate a pleasurable experience. It is without hesitation that I would recommend Mimi for all your real estate needs.

Brenda Lane - May 17, 2017

I had my home listed last year. Mimmi did bring me an offer. But the people backed out at the last moment they were first-time buyers. She told me to take it off the market and wait until the spring as she knew that property values were increasing. So I did.I trusted her advice, And I'm glad I did. Early this spring Mimmi contacted me and said now is the time to sell. We had a few hurdles along the way but in the end she got me the price that I wanted. The house is now sold thanks to her and her perseverance. I highly recommend her, and if I ever have a home to buy or sell again I would definitely use Mimmi. She was a joy to work with.

Adel Boussenane - March 12, 2017

Mimi was able to sell my condo at asking price within a week of listing. A lot of other realtors wanted me to jump through hoops with renovations and staging but she knew enough to know what would matter to the buyer. Would highly recommend her!!

Christopher Jenkins - March 11, 2017

Mimi was was very knowledgable, easy to work with, able to handle difficult competing bid situations and gave us very sound advice on what we needed to do to stat safe. She did not rush us and we were able to take the time to make the an informed decision on our home purchase. I would highly recommend her and trust she has your best interest in mind.

Tyler Barrs - March 09, 2017

Mimi was super responsive. I appreciated that add this is how I like to do and how my clients expect me to respond to their needs. Well done Mimi.

BH - February 27, 2017

I would highly recommend Mimi Kates to be your realtor for your next home purchase. Mimi will work very hard, without being pushy, to help you find the home that is right for you, in your budget and that meets your needs. I can say with confidence that she makes herself available every day of the week, is highly ethical and can refer you to the best lawyers, oil tank scanners and home inspectors in Greater Victoria. Further, Mimi doesn’t get frustrated by a seller’s marker and will ensure that all of your offers (we had five) have your best interests in mind. It is without reservation that I would recommend Mimi Kates as your realtor and I would use Mimi again when buying or selling a home!

She gave me excellent advice through out. I would defiantly use Mimis skills in the future and recommend her to all my family and friends.

Libby Lang - February 04, 2017

Mimi was fantastic. Extremely bright..Very honest and trustworthy. We were sorry we could not buy a home in Victoria but there wasn't much availalbe in our price range and all of it required reno..We changed directions and decded not to buy in victoria but it had nothing to do with her lack of ability or effort.. We just got tired of being homeless and wanted to buy..closer to where we had lived due to convenience more than anything .. and exhaustion due to a difficult time we had had for two years attempting to develop a property we had purchased... We would definitely recommend her and will use her again when we 'retire' to Victoria in the future.

Carolyn Williams - February 03, 2017

cannot expressed in words how much I appreciate her and would not hesitate to refer her or have her represent us again
