Testimonials

A couple of years ago I bought a home through Glen in Parksville. Decided to list it at the end of August and Glen sold it in one day for a very good price to the first person that viewed it. He then got an excellent back up offer. October 1st he listed a rental I owned in Nanaimo, he dealt with my renters, sold it right away for over asking and had many more offers while we waited for subjects to be removed. Very happy to have Glen as my realtor as he uses professionals to display homes in the best way possible.

I found Glen to be an up front and an honest realtor, he doesn’t make promises he can’t keep. I have recommended him to several clients and they have all been pleased with his professionalism.
Doreen Peacock
It has been a pleasure to have Glen as our realtor. We have worked with him on several occasions and have always been extremely pleased with his vast knowledge and experience to provide us with a positive outcome. Always professional, attentive and willing to provide answers to questions quickly and efficiently, Glen saw that each question was handled with the same level of importance. It was especially challenging during the COVID pandemic to be selling our home but Glen’s kindness and attention to detail made it less stressful. Having Glen in our corner has given us peace of mind, and knowing we were in good hands. We would definitely recommend Glen to anyone looking to buy or sell a property as we feel he represents the highest level in real estate professionalism.

We met Glen at an open house over 10 years ago. My husband and I were playing with the idea of moving to the island, and we happened to go to an open house that Glen was having. We did not buy that house; but he found the perfect house for us, which coincidentally was across the road from the open house. Glen was patient taking us to many showings before we found this one gem.

Within the 10 years of knowing Glen, he has sold 2 of our houses and the sales were quick and efficient. We have also bought 2 houses, 1 acreage for our son and 1 ocean front piece of land using Glen’s vast knowledge of real estate.

As a professional realtor, Glen is extremely knowledgeable and is patient and courteous. He is easy to talk to, good at listening to his clients, easily available, and at all times quick at returning our calls or to respond to our queries. Above all, Glen is one Real Estate Agent who makes it a point to help you meet your purpose rather than just fulfilling his goals. We recommend Glen to all our family and friends.

Glen was recommended to us by our realtor in Edmonton as we planned our move to the island and we were glad and fortunate he did. Glen met us and toured us around to various homes in the Parksville/Qualicum Beach areas where we were looking to buy. He was very knowledgeable about the market and current conditions in these areas. He made all the necessary viewing arrangements and ultimately he found our home that wasn’t even listed yet! All arrangements for the purchase were carried out flawlessly even though there was an issue with the owners removing some fixed parts of the house. Glen rectified THAT in a hurry! We have recommended Glen to friends moving to this area and he handled their purchases with the same professionalism as he did with ours. If you are looking for a top realtor, call Glen. You won’t be disappointed.
Corey & Terry Myer
We are pleased to provide an unqualified recommendation for Glen McPherson with whom we have worked over the past six years… in the sale of a Parksville home as well as the purchase of two Parksville homes. Glen’s lengthy experience and his established expertise in real estate was evident from our first telephone contact and throughout the contractual proceedings until the final details were signed and sealed. He knows the regional real estate market in depth and is quick to ascertain his clients’ wants and needs.

Glen also clearly understands residential construction standards and the many peculiarities and pitfalls that may present themselves in a coastal climate. In this regard he is able to provide advice and cautions about choices that exist for buyers who may be new to this region.

Above all, Glen is honest, straightforward, and professional. We have come to place ultimate trust and confidence in the manner in which he conducts his affairs on our behalf, and we have no hesitance in recommending Glen, regardless of whether you might be in the market to purchase or list a property or to explore possible options in the region.

I have had the pleasure to work Glen on a couple of different occasions in selling property in the Parksville and Qualicum area. I have found him and his team to be nothing but professional and respectful of his clients to get the job done. I was always surprised to hear from him so early in the morning, wondering does this guy not sleep! kidding aside he was always good at responding to any correspondence or questions I had. I would recommend him highly. Thanks Glen.

I have known Glen McPherson for many years and have always found him very generous with his time.

When I sold my house in 2019, he was most helpful in giving me tips on how to improve my listing, and when I bought my house this year, during the walk through he pointed out little things I might have missed.

Even when the purchase was complete, he helped with the legal procedure, and with choosing repair people, etc. I can phone Glen anytime and he always there to help, no matter how small my problem might be. I will always recommend Glen to my friends, because of his hard work and honesty.
Joan Morgan

Glen McPherson was exactly what we wanted for a real estate agent. He gave great advice on the current market value of our house sale and how to successfully purchase our new home. Glen put the time and effort to ensure we had a successful outcome of our real estate plan. His financial advice was well worth the sale commission.
Tom & Della Staite
Recently I found myself in the difficult situation of being the executor for an estate property in Qualicum Beach, BC, while I myself live in Ontario. There was no possibility of travel and I needed a representative in British Columbia. As I looked through the estate papers I found a personal note from Glen and thought I should give him a call. We hit it off right away and after looking at his proposal I decided to ask him to take on the property and sell it.

Glen took care of everything from the home inspection, to removing the contents, cleaning house, undertaking the essential repairs, and positioning the home in the right context in the market, and at the right price I was very pleased that Glen had the practical knowledge, energy and ability to get the job done Being an estate sale and being from outside the province I always felt that Glen managed the sale perfectly and relieved a lot of the uncertainty that I otherwise would have faced. I am very happy with the quick sale at a very good price, and from independent feedback I know that the sale was right on the market.

1Right away when we listed our homes with Glen we saw dramatic increase in showings. Glen website is excellent in
getting people to see your home and very easy to arrange a viewing. In short time Glen was able to sell a few homes
for us. If your considering listing your home you should give Glen a call.

When I came to the island in 2005, I was quite ill and desperate to find a new home. I contacted Glen Macpherson, whom I had never met before, and over the next few weeks, he drove me around to so many places until he found me the exact kind of place I was looking for: lots of privacy, surrounded by trees, and with a studio where I could do my ceramics.

I have lived here and loved this place for the past 15 years, and when I decided that it was time to move on, I called Glen Macpherson again to list my house, and, amazingly, it sold within 3 days!

If you are looking for a hard working realtor who knows the business and will work to find you what you want, then Glen McPherson is the one that I would highly recommend.
Danielle Bluestone

We can highly recommend Glen McPherson to anyone considering purchasing or selling their home.  We found him attentive, well informed, efficient, and a pleasure to work with.  We live on the mainland and bought a vacation home on Vancouver Island .  The transactions went smoothly.   We would choose Glen again if we were considering buying or selling in the future.

You are a very nice person to deal with Glen and we hope we will have your services again.  Lynnette and Jay, Parksville   “Thanks for all your hard work.  I’m really pleased with the sale and your constant updates.  You have a very valuable assistant.  Diana was extremely helpful in the sale.  It’s been a real experience!
Bonnie Bailey, Qualicum Beach
This was a very big decision for my husband and me, buying our first house. Glen McPherson talked us through every step of the way. He gave us advice on long term prospects and market value. We felt that he really “worked for us.” We were very happy with his care. And will choose to use him again as our family grows.
Geoff & Alicia Howell, Coquitlam, BC
Glen McPherson was a tremendous help in finding our house in Qualicum. He spent a huge amount of time with us viewing many properties on two separate occasions when we visited the Island from the U.K. Eventually we stumbled on a property that wasn’t even listed by his company, but nevertheless he was still able to proceed on our behalf and make the buying process an easy and pleasant one.  His patience, perseverance and good honest advice enabled us to find the property that suited us best. This advice went beyond just buying the house with help on all sorts of matters from insurance to immigration. Few, if any, of the Realtors we met had the same friendly dedicated and non- pushy approach. We can thoroughly recommend him.
Peter & Sue Garner, Cambridgeshire, UK
Pam and I wish to express our thanks to Glen for the outstanding service he provided us when we were seeking a new home on Vancouver Island. Prior to our first search with Glen, he requested that we provide him with our needs, wish list and budget constraints. When we then came from Edmonton to look at homes, Glen had pre-selected a number of properties that would be suitable and he devoted his time entirely to us during our search. Throughout our dealings with Glen he was always very personable, professional, and helpful. We found a house which more than met our wishes and is now becoming our “home”. We recommend Glen with hesitation.
Pam & Larrie Taylor, Edmonton, AB
Our land purchase in Qualicum Beach was handled superbly by Glen and went without a hitch. Not being from Canada made it confusing for us but Glen’s expertise and thoughtfulness gave us the confidence to proceed.
Philip and Lesley Brown, Surrey U.K
Glen’s dealings with us have been us have been the definition of integrity. His professional attitude, cheerful willingness and professional advice have been indispensable. Without his help we could never have become as successful as we have. It’s Glen’s ‘Can do attitude’ that will keep us as his client indefinitely.
Archie & Sigrid McNab, Coombs, BC
Dear Glen. We wanted to take a moment to thank you for the wonderful service you provided to us during our recent purchase of two investment homes as well as my mother’s retirement condo in Qualicum Beach. We were impressed with your knowledge of the area including the various towns and neighborhoods as well as your expertise in dealing with the vendors agents. Your friendly attitude always put us first during the process and it was obvious that you have earned the respect of your colleagues in the real estate industry.  We were particularly blessed by your introductions to other professionals including a property manager and a financial advisor, who played a vital role to assist us in the process of making these purchases. We look forward to working with you again in the future.
Bruce & Laurel Stanton, Calgary
Though never having met, you carried out a sale for me over internet and telephone. You have done a fast, professional, great job in selling my rental property for me, despite my having had some recent frustrations with destructive, dishonest tenants. You have really been patient and helped me a lot.  Thank you very much for all of your good work and results Glen!
Sheldon Hart , Manitoba
Michelle and I have always been a little leery of real estate agents and Glen certainly made us feel comfortable right from the start.  He’s there when you need him to be there, not pushy, and is still one of the nicest guys around.  He got things done quickly, and painless. We recommend him to all our customers.

I first found Glen when I was just “looking” on the site.   I sent a query thru the site to him and he promptly returned the information I requested.  When I was finally ready to go ahead with my searches Glen was there for me. Not only is he professional, he is also very personable and made me feel at ease with the entire transaction. I hope to have dealings with him again in the future and do no hesitate to recommend him to friends and acquaintances
