The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to show you their correspondence. Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my down-to-earth and honest approach has earned me many friends - I think that's fantastic!
Mimi was marvelous.She had every very detail taken care of professionally and completely. She is masterful in knowing how to make a house look it's best. We feel her background in home renovation and Public Relations really made a difference in the quickness and price of our sale. She is also personable, professional and wonderful to work with. We would definitely work with her again.

The service and personal attention I received from Mimi Kates was exceptional. She is truly a high-caliber professional and her knowledge of the local market and negotiating skills were key in ensuring that I received the best offer for my home. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Mimi. I could not have asked for a better Realtor to facilitate the process of selling my home.
Mimi, we really do appreciate your follow through. You have made the closing process stress free for us. Your customer service is just impeccable & we would highly recommend you to anyone who is thinking about selling their home.

Mimi was fantastic to work with. Always quick to answer any questions and go beyond the typical realtor demands (being out of province buyers this was particularly important to us). Mimi was supportive and easy to work while searching for our perfect home, which she ultimately helped us find and purchase.

Mimi went above and beyond the call of duty, put up with all my questions and phone calls all hours of the day, she is one special lady would not hesitate to suggest her as a realtor or to use her again in the near future for our real estate needs. My house sold pretty fast for what I wanted and that is thanks to all her work. Mimi's marketing efforts and ability to get my home exposure lead to me selling my home at market value and negotiated the best terms possible. She's honest, hardworking and never told us things we wanted to hear, rather things we needed to hear as our advisor. We will be using her again in the near future and am so grateful to have her as a continual source of market information as well as any other real estate and mortgage needs.
Mimi worked with our family for more than 6 months in an effort to find a new home. We were new to the city of Victoria and were unsure of where we wanted to purchase a house to raise our family. Throughout the months we saw countless homes as we narrowed our search down. Mimi’s patience and timeliness were critical throughout the process. She maintained a positive demeanor when things looked bleak and forged ahead. We never felt pressured by Mimi to make the wrong choice or to settle. She worked well within our limits and helped us immensely in making the right decision.
Even after the purchase of our home, Mimi assisted with helping us to secure a home inspection and the best financing possible through a mortgage broker. She drove down the bank’s rate and saved us considerable money. All in, it was a very positive experience."

I gave Mimi 5 stars because with her help we were able to list and sell our home in 3 days! She was great to work with and always available. She answered my calls every single time and I really felt that she would do whatever it took to sell our house quickly and for a fair price. I felt her advise was honest and helpful and she exceeded our expectations with the sale and all the issues that come with that process. Another big plus for us was that she wasn't pushy. I always felt she had ourselves and our tenants best interest in mind. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell a house. Thanks Mimi!
I have worked with Mimi on the purchase of homes and she is great. Her response time is quick if I have any questions, and she is great at finding me the right home at the right price. I absolutely will use Mimi for my next home purchase. Thanks Mimi!
