"Vicki & I would like to thank you for all the excellent hard work. Give yourself a good pat on the back & tell your boss you have always exceeded our expectations. We couldn't be happier. Your friends...."
Gordon & Vicki Reeve
Peter recently represented me on the purchase of a property in Parksville. Peter was very prompt in returning my phone calls and providing any information that I requested. Peter was very professional through all aspects of my purchase. If there were questions that he could not answer he put me in touch with other professionals who were of help. I highly recommend Peter as a Realtor. He is also a very nice guy.

Peter Kent! You are the Bomb! What a birthday present! My Beach condo sold for full price. We played hardball and it worked! It is we who are blessed Peter. You have made this whole process so stress-free, for me top dollar for my place and I loved how we worked as a team toward this goal. Your attention to detail and professionalism far exceeded my expectations. I have no doubt that you will have tremendous success for yourself and everyone else with whom you work with.
Thank you Peter for going to bat for me with the sellers when the deal seemed to be falling apart. Your communication skills with the other agent and constant reassurance are what kept this deal together and me in it. I cant wait to start developing this South Nanaimo property into a multifamily building. My first major project! All the best.
Teamwork. Peter kept in constant contact through every phase of the offer process on my Nanaimo condo sale.He even came in and helped me with choosing countertops and appliances for the presale renovation. We set a record for highest price in the complex and I couldnt be happier. Now lets sell my Port Alberni commercial property my friend!!
When I started looking for real estate on Vancouver Island, I didn’t have any contacts, so I was flying blind. My daughter mentioned that one of her teaching co- workers had just bought a place in Nanaimo, and was really impressed with her agent, Peter Kent. So I gave Peter a call. He seemed very professional and personable over the phone, and after a couple of calls and discussions about what we were looking for, I decided that he was a good match for us.
Buying a house in summer of 2021 is not for the faint of heart. I think it was the toughest buying market I have ever seen or heard of. To successfully navigate it, and end up with a purchase at the end of the day, is no mean feat. It takes an agent that is knowledgeable and level headed…..and really optimistic! As much as real estate skills, it requires an agent who is able to relate to the frustrations of being out bid, beaten by bully bids, and is able to keep your spirits and optimism up.
One of the problems with a market like this is that you end up looking at a lot of houses, and as listings are in such short supply, you often want to look at places that are sort of “hail mary” options. Peter was always willing to take us out and look at places, even if privately he knew they likely were not going to be good fits. Because we were looking at places all over the map, from Cobble Hill to Qualicum, we had him driving all over the Island. Whenever we wanted to see anything, he was always ready and willing to go the extra mile. I would, without reservation, recommend Peter's services to anyone looking for a house on the central Island.

I was introduced to Peter by very good friend of mine when she learned that I intended to sell my home, I have everything good to say about him, he is thorough, meticulous and good at what he does, he is not only my realtor but now I can call him my friend. Nothing is too much to ask, he has offered his help in so many ways just to help me through the hard parts.
I’m really glad that I met him!
Wally Hillier, a very satisfied customer in Qualicum Beach.
Peter is an amazing agent !! He is always on top of everything and there to answer any questions or concerns regarding your sale or purchase. He is efficient, honest, knowledgeable and his expertise is top notch. We would highly recommend him!
Sincerely, Carol Manchester & Mike Kennedy
A chance encounter with Peter at the first property we viewed was the start of a great partnership - he was always extremely quick to respond to questions and requests about properties as well as regularly sending us updates on new listings and market developments. We viewed and bidded on quite a number of properties until we got our dream home, and Peter was very knowledgeable about the process and tips & tricks to keep our offers competitive. Thanks Peter for guiding us through this wild market and helping us secure a beautiful home!
Neil Lauren and Gemma!
I purchased my new home during the time period of intense bidding wars and offers, it was a scary feeling. Peter Kent helped me feel at ease and not pressured.
Peter’s professionalism and attention to details is outstanding! He excels in communicating the ins and outs of the transaction and is very details oriented. I feel very confident he has my best interest during the purchase of my new home. He is a very outspoken and confident person, and this is why I recommend him for your real estate needs.
Laura Ballz Qualicum Beach
I have known Peter most of my life but that is not why I chose him as my real estate agent. He has demonstrated abilities to excel at whatever he puts his mind to. Real estate was another challenge he took on and has proven to be a professional ethically minded agent who puts his clients first. Everything he told me was "bang on" and at every bump and turn he was reassuring and determined to get the job done correctly. My property sold in the timeline he predicted and at the price that I found acceptable. Peter does not sugar coat anything, he gives it to you just the way it is and offers insight into what to expect in a changing market. When the going gets tough... the smart go with Peter Kent!!!
Jay Mac. Nanaimo BC
Wow! Made buying a house such a breeze! Peter was always available to answer any questions we had! He always explained everything in a way that was easy to understand. We will use Peter for any future purchases! Highly recommend!
Denise and Owen L, Parksville BC
We feel so lucky to have had the opportunity to work with Peter, and have him help us relocate to the west coast! Buying a home can be difficult on a good day, then add the complexity of being across the country while house hunting...Peter handled it with ease! Peter helped us every step of the way, and it was comforting knowing he was in our corner. We are excited to move into our new home, and would happily recommend Peter to friends and family looking to buy on the island. Thanks again for all your help!

Peter has represented me as both a property buyer and as a seller. Peter is an excellent communicator and very professional. Peter is always on top of things and doesn’t let any details slip by. He understands the local real estate market and can provide valuable advice whether you are listing or purchasing. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home.
John Weninger, Vancouver, BC
I picked Peter over several other agents because of his apparent ability to sell our unique strata units quickly and cleanly. We agreed on the price and within the first day of marketing, we had a full cash offer accepted! Peter handled all the fine details of the sale keeping in touch with me constantly. His attention to detail and willingness to go to the extra mile make him my choice for realtor of the year! Very satisfied with our teamwork and experience. -
Thanks Peter - It was a pleasure to meet you and work with you. Thanks very much for the advice and support during this taxing time. The help was more than appreciated.
Peter was referred to us by our relator on the mainland, as we were moving to Nanaimo. He was our second relator, as the other person didn’t work out for us. When I spoke with Peter, I let him know that we were going to be fairly demanding of his time, as we knew the market was shifting and needed to find something immediately. He agreed that he could provide the level of service we needed and had the time for us. This was very important to us, as we had some challenges in the past.
Peter 1000% held true to his word in every way. He was very responsive in his communications, organized when setting up viewings, provided solid advice during negotiations, and stayed in touch throughout the entire process. He was committed to helping find our forever home, which we did. We’ve owned multiple properties over the years and worked with many realtors. Peter is one of the best we’ve worked with and we would recommend him to everyone looking for a new home in the area.
Peter was excellent with helping us buy our first home. His knowledge and attention to details was a great asset to have on our side during the buying process. Peter’s calm approach, relatable and relaxed personality made the purchase of our condo stress free. I would highly recommend Peter to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home.
Our heartfelt thanks to Peter, who has patiently worked with us for 3 years assisting us in finding our perfect home. We have been extremely impressed with his perseverance and willingness to help us. He has been incredibly easy to work with! We feel we started as clients and ended as friends. It has been a long journey, but Peter made it easy for us. His professional guidance and sense of humour never wavered. We trusted him to always do his best for us, and he never let us down. Our confidence in Peter is such that we asked him to help our daughter and husband find and purchase a home, as well as another couple we knew who were relocating to Vancouver Island. They all have nothing but praise for Peter!

I met Peter through a resort listing he had in Parksville that was gone in one day, but he followed up with me constantly and when my location and needs changed he helped me with my relocation to Port Alberni. He was my eyes and ears on the ground as I was out of province. Solid, dependable and always in communication and on my side. Best experience Ive ever had as a homeowner.
