STACEY BUCHHORN TESTIMONIAL
Leaving our dream home in Sechelt in search of a new beginning on the Sunshine Coast could have been a tall order to fill for most realtors, but not for Stacey Buchhorn. After selling our home for the full listing price in August 2020 in the middle of the Coronavirus Pandemic, Stacey set out to find our new property. It is a given that selling or buying a home, under any conditions can be one of the most challenging and emotional experiences we face in life. What sets Stacey apart is that she has the gifted ability to turn what could be a nerve-racking and intimidating event into an exciting and exhilarating life changing outcome. Patience is certainly a virtue of Stacey’s. She showed us countless properties before we found the right one. We never felt pressured to buy and her expertise in guiding us in the right direction was unsurpassed. She found the perfect home for us before we found it for ourselves. When it came time to dotting the “I’s and crossing the T’s” of our offer, she was a tough negotiator on our behalf, which resulted in the best outcome for us. Our home buying and selling experience with Stacey could not have been better. She is professional, kind, and meticulous in every detail and always on your side as your realtor and friend. We absolutely recommend Stacey Buchhorn. Stacey also provides the most valuable resources for all moving needs such as legal, home inspection and other trades which we found so valuable. She is one of the finest and most skilled agents on the Sunshine Coast. Bev and Brian Coxford
You were always available, professional, friendly and understanding.
Dear Stacey I want to thank you for your diligent work on my behalf. You found the perfect property to meet my needs. You were always available, professional, friendly and understanding. At no time did I feel pressured to make a decision nor did I ever feel rushed in our meetings. Thank you so much for a genuinely positive experience. Vicki Halford.
First time home owners Kendra and Jamie “Can’t thank Stacey enough”…
They know Stacey understands the empowering and positive feelings that first time buyer’s experience. They chose Stacey as their trusted realtor to guide them to home ownership, which for most people is the largest and most meaningful purchase in their lives. This young couple credit Stacey for her patience, perseverance and expert market knowledge along their home buying journey. “Stacey was an exceptional advisor, providing us with a large range of home options that worked within our goals and budgets. We can’t thank Stacey enough and are excited to begin our new journey on The Sunshine Coast.”

OH WHAT A DIFFERENCE A "GREAT" REALTOR MAKES . . .
When Lynne and Ian first met with Stacey to list their home, they knew they had found a true professional. “Stacey really impressed us with her ability to listen to our input, and she spent the time to thoroughly go through our home and identify many different target buyers that our home would suit. She pulled out all the stops and marketed our home aggressively, which included working with her photographer who used his drone and camera skills to make our home stand out. We had listed our home previously but it took Stacey to get the job done. Thank you Stacey, we will happily recommend you as a trusted realtor."
Ian and Lynne, Madeira Park
SO PLEASED TO JOIN YOU ON OUR JOURNEY IN SELLING YOUR HOME AND THE PURCHASE OF YOUR NEW CONDO
Halfmoon Bay couple, Ross and Lee Hay-Roe, credit their real estate sale and the purchase of their new condo in The Watermark, to the high level of professionalism and competency they experienced working with Sutton WestCoast realtor Stacey Buchhorn. Selling Our Home… “We had been considering downsizing from our home in Halfmoon Bay, but this was a ‘someday’ thing. We were starting to explore looking at condos when we first met Stacey. We toured one of her listings, and after viewing a couple of others she suggested to us, we felt Stacey really understood what we were after. So we invited her to our home, and before she left, we had made a decision to have her list it for sale. “Stacey wasted no time, arranged to have our home put on the market, and set up a realtors’ open house. We received an offer the same day- and when that offer fell through because the buyer backed out, Stacey followed up with the buyers’ realtors and we sold or home within a few days. Our Move to The Watermark… “When it came to buying our condo in The Watermark, Stacey knew of the unit that we had admired for a long time, and knew that it was available. Then she was there every step of the way to help us through the entire purchasing process. She provided guidance and suggestions regarding all aspects of the financing, as well as moving suggestions and other details. When she recognized that it was very important to us to keep all of the details organized, Stacey came up with a chronological spreadsheet, with each detail easy to find, so that nothing would be missed; it was most reassuring. Going Above and Beyond the Call of Duty… “Stacey also took a very personal interest in the whole process, e.g. our new home had no room to fit our piano, which the movers left outside on the patio. Seeing that a storm was coming, Stacey ran off and returned with tarps and bungee cords, to keep the piano safe. There were many other things that she did that were ‘beyond the call of duty.’ We sincerely thank Stacey, and look forward to the opportunity to tell others what a great job she did both in selling our house, and buying our new home.”
THIS EMAIL JUST MADE MY DAY!
I spend a lot of time perusing the real estate market on the southern Sunshine Coast and I want to say that you are unquestionably THE BEST at describing - in detail, every aspect of a listing. It reflects on how serious you take your role in representing both the seller and the potential buyer. GOLD STAR for you in my estimation and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone that ever asked me for a Realtor referral. - Bill Hockley (West Sechelt).
STACEY FOUND US THE IDEAL PIECE OF LAND TO BUILD OUR FUTURE HOME
“Working with Stacey was one of the best decisions we made when we came for a visit to The Sunshine Coast. We quickly realized that we wanted to buy a piece of land to build on in the future. Stacey was patient, professional and knowledgeable in showing us appropriate land that met our criteria. She informed us about market trends and followed up with us whenever we had questions. It didn’t take long before we found the ideal piece of land and we are excited to make Sechelt our home soon. Thank you Stacey, we look forward to working with you soon again.”
Anna and Lisa, Richmond
STACEY MADE THE PROCESS OF SELLING OUR HOME AS STRESS FREE AS POSSIBLE
“Working with Stacey to sell our home in Sechelt was noting but professional. Her attention to detail and honesty made the process a real pleasure. We cannot imagine a better real estate agent or friend.”
Dave and Jeanette Car, Campbell River
OUR BUDGET WAS SMALL BUT STACEY STILL GAVE US HER FULL ATTENTION
“Terrific job in helping us find the right home, thanks Stacey. Having family already living on The Sunshine Coast, my husband and I decided to explore the option of buying a second property in Sechelt. Stacey had previously worked with my aunt and uncle, so it was natural for us to work with her. She showed us multiple options, however the timing wasn’t quite right. Stacey kept in touch, providing us with listings that she thought we would want to consider- always prepared but never pushy. When Bruce and I finally made a decision to move forward, Stacey found us the ideal home in Sechelt. She is the ultimate realtor: patient, professional and extremely well informed. We would heartily recommend Stacey for anyone who is looking for a realtor that goes beyond your expectations.”

CREATING A "NEW CHAPTER" IN WEST SECHELT
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to Stacey Buchhorn, for her dedication and hard work in helping me sell my estate and purchase my new home in Sechelt, B.C. I was introduced to Stacey, who was recommended to me by a lawyer who was handling my estate sale. Stacey was the second realtor on the list I was provided, and I ended up calling Stacey two months into my contract with my initial realtor because I wasn’t getting the results or service that I was looking for. I instantly knew that Stacey was top notch, as she was extremely professional and hard working. She helped me stop worrying about the sale of my estate and was very supportive throughout. As a relatively new and proven realtor, I would have thought that Stacey had been in real estate a long time, because she was able to cover all aspects of selling my home and buying a new one, in a very professional manner. She definitely has her hands on the market and always seemed to get along well with other realtors, which is a very telling sign of a top- notch realtor. Stacey was aggressive without showing it, and always has the best interest of her clients. I felt very well represented, and appreciated that Stacey didn’t disappear after the purchase of my new home. She was right there all the way, even checking in on me after I had moved in. My only regret is that I didn’t use Stacey from the beginning. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you Stacey. Thank you so much.
WELCOME TO SECHELT FROM SQUAMISH
We are lucky to have chosen Stacey Buchhorn, an experienced realtor for the purchase of our new condo in Sechelt. After meeting Stacey at the Edgewater show-home presentation center, my wife and I were both extremely impressed with her professionalism, courtesy and genuine personality. As a growing young family with 2 boys (2 years old and 6 months), we were looking for a location that would offer the outdoor lifestyle that we were used to in Squamish, B.C. We knew that Sechelt was the right place to buy, with its ocean views, beauty, natural settings and “relaxed” paced lifestyle. This was our third real-estate purchase, and Stacey was our fourth real estate agent that we had the pleasure of working with. Stacey, by far, was the best, most professional real estate agent that we have ever worked with, with an attitude, second to none. We experienced a few hick-ups along the way with our broker and financing agent. Because of Stacey’s ability to effectively communicate with not only ourselves but our broker and seller, she was able to keep the property in escrow, which allowed us more time to solidify the deal. If you are looking for a real estate agent with a professional, non-pressure approach, and one who will assist you throughout the entire purchasing/selling process, we absolutely would recommend Stacey. Thank you Stacey for being a co-creator in the process of manifesting our dream home. The views are amazing!
Sincerely, Amit and Erica
PLEASED TO ACCOMPANY YOU ON YOUR JOURNEY FROM MADEIRA PARK TO SECHELT!!!
We have just sold our home and purchased another under Stacey's guidance and support, all within the span of six weeks. Stacey's highly organized real estate tool kit started with her listening closely and developing a strong sense of our expectations and goals; she prepared our listing immediately, enlisting a professional photographer and could not have presented our home any better. We were further impressed with the additional marketing tools she used giving us exposure to a much wider market. She understood our buyer profile and led us quickly and efficiently through a very tailored number of available options on the market, ultimately leading to our purchase. Her strong organization, prompt follow-up, excellent communication and use of technology allowed us to manage and conclude the process while we were on vacation for a week. She was a trusted, patient and professional advisor who assisted greatly as we finalized negotiations on these major purchases. We would highly recommend Stacey!"

WISHING YOU ALL THE BEST IN KAMLOOPS BUT SORRY TO SEE YOU GO!
We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank Stacey Buchhorn for the excellent way she handled our house sale in Gibsons, B.C. from start to finish. The decision to sell our house and move to Kamloops, was based on a career change for myself. We were led to use Stacey as our realtor, as I had known her from a previous career, and I wanted someone who was driven. Stacey has a desire to succeed, and I knew she was passionate in this desire. She is also very thorough and pays attention to details. Stacey knew that it was important for us to sell quickly, and she delivered a high impact advertising campaign that brought fast results. She followed up with every showing and gave us feedback. She interacted with other real estate personnel and kept them informed as well to our particular situation. Stacey is a great communicator both to the seller (and buyer) and to other real estate personnel and she looked out for our interests as the seller. We really value the feedback she gave us AND the positive reinforcement in the selling of our home. We give Stacey Buchhorn high marks for the service she provided for us.
Glen and Gail Cabat
A STAR FROM START TO FINISH
“Stacey I cannot thank you enough for helping me find the perfect condo. After living on The Sunshine Coast for a year, I decided to make this my permanent home. As a young person, new to real estate, the task of finding a condo was daunting. I met Stacey when I walked into a condo that I was interested in, and we “clicked” right away. I knew instantly that she was the right fit for me- she made me feel comfortable right from the beginning. She took me to visit lots of condos, giving me many options. Most importantly, she never put any pressure on me what -so-ever. Thanks for everything you did for me Stacey.”
WELCOME TO THE SUNSHINE COAST JAN AND LOIS!
We were very lucky to have chosen an experienced realtor like Stacey Buchhorn for the purchase of our new home in Gibson’s, B.C. We were living in Vancouver, and decided to move to The Sunshine Coast. Lois had lived on the Sunshine Coast many years ago, and because of the fast pace of the lower mainland, over crowdedness and crime, we made a decision to return “home”. We did some research on-line and we found Stacey because we saw that she was the listing agent on several homes we were interested in coming to see. Stacey was wonderful to work with: she was always available to show us as many homes and we wanted, we never felt pressured and most importantly, Stacey was able to understand our buying criteria and she worked hard to help us find exactly what we were looking for. Stacey was very patient, understanding, knowledgeable and negotiated well on our behalf. She even made our experience fun. One thing we really appreciated about Stacey, is that even after we moved in to our new home, she kept in touch to make sure we got settled. Stacey is all about quality, and we highly recommend her.

I ENJOY SEEING YOU CREATE YOUR DREAM TINA!
Dear Stacey, I am writing this letter so that I can properly express to you how very fortunate I was to have had you as my agent on the purchase of my new home. I know I have told you that it was terrific working with you as a person—because of your honesty, supportive style and positive attitude. But your real estate credentials are made even more special, valuable and substantial because of the business acumen and objective analysis you bring to the profession. I highly valued how your understanding of the real estate market was not just a casual topic of conversation; you presented me with a very detailed, thorough and informative market analysis that I could study and then use to meaningfully participate in the negotiating and decision-making process. I was impressed by the substantial amount of background research you performed on properties, and then was even more impressed by your professional presentation of the material in a formal package. Your stewardship of the entire selection and then purchase process, from the baby-step start to the sprinting finish, was comprehensive and respectful. it is obvious that your solid knowledge, business intelligence and negotiating skills have placed you at the pinnacle of the profession.
