Jeff came highly recommended to me and I can see why. He's been great to work with, super knowledgeable and helpful. I cannot speak highly enough about him. Absolutely recommend him to anyone thinking about buying a home.

Jeff helped me acquire the home I really wanted. Under a very short time line he stepped in and promptly & professionally looked after all the details. On our first meeting he impressed me with being informed & ready to look after my situation. He 100% gave good advice and got the job done right. I recommend him for his professional knowledge & attention to detail. On top of that he was personally a pleasure to work with.

I have worked with Jeff both professionally and personally, and I can promise you there is no one with more integrity and dedication than Jeff. While purchasing our first home, which included bringing our close family into the process with us, Jeff stepped up in all ways and quite literally became one of the family himself. He cares that much about the people he helps, and the standard that he holds himself to is second to none. He will gently guide and support you while you think over every little nuanced detail of the buying/selling process, and he will make absolutely sure you and your loved ones feel comfortable with your decision (whatever that is!). Not only is Jeff a consummate professional, he is an absolute joy to be around. His kindness and sincerity elevate an experience that could easily become overwhelming. He is such a good reader of people, so you will always feel heard, understood, and never pressured. As a fellow real estate professional, and as a first time homebuyer, I could not be more grateful to know Jeff. I am sure if you have the good fortune to work with him too, you will know exactly what I mean 🙂

I recently had the pleasure of working with Jeff Hunter, a standout real estate agent based in Duncan, BC, and I must say, my experience couldn't have been more satisfying. Jeff guided us through the process of purchasing our first home with impeccable professionalism, unparalleled expertise, and a contagious sense of humor that made every step enjoyable. From the moment we met Jeff, his friendly demeanor immediately put us at ease. His genuine warmth and approachability made us feel comfortable discussing our needs and preferences, which was crucial for us as first-time homebuyers navigating the complexities of the real estate market. What truly sets Jeff apart is his extensive knowledge of the local real estate landscape. His insights into the Duncan area were invaluable, providing us with comprehensive information about neighborhoods, schools, amenities, and market trends. Jeff's expertise ensured that we made informed decisions every step of the way, empowering us to find a home that not only met but exceeded our expectations. Beyond his expertise, Jeff's sense of humor added an extra layer of enjoyment to the home-buying process. His witty remarks and lighthearted approach made property viewings feel less like a chore and more like an adventure. Jeff's ability to inject humor into even the most stressful situations helped alleviate any anxiety we had, turning what could have been a daunting experience into an enjoyable journey. Throughout the entire process, Jeff demonstrated a genuine commitment to our satisfaction. He was responsive to our questions and concerns, always making himself available to address any issues that arose. Jeff's dedication to ensuring our happiness reaffirmed our confidence in him as our trusted advisor and advocate. In the end, thanks to Jeff's guidance and expertise, we found the perfect home for our needs. Our experience working with him was nothing short of exceptional, and we couldn't be happier with the outcome. If you're in the market for a real estate agent who combines professionalism with a personal touch, look no further than Jeff Hunter. With Jeff by your side, you can rest assured that your home-buying journey will be not only successful but also thoroughly enjoyable. Thank you so much for everything Jeff.

Jeff was wonderful to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable about the Cowichan Valley real estate and real estate in general. He was always punctual, communicated well via email, text, and phone. He listened to what we wanted, and we never felt rushed or pressured. We feel like he always had our best interest at heart and really took the time to get to know us and learn what we were looking for . His sense of humour and positive attitude really made the experience enjoyable . We would highly recommend him to anyone looking in this area and as a matter of fact we already did! In the end, he did find us our dream home! Thank you Jeff for your patience and hard work. It was an absolute pleasure working with you!

Jeff is the real deal!!! My wife and I had an amazing experience working with Jeff to find our first home. He’s incredibly knowledgeable about the local market and the nuances of the current real estate climate. His communication was top-notch, always keeping us informed every step of the way (even outside of business hours! truly above and beyond). When we had questions or needed extra clarification of the next steps, he was always gracious and kind in his communication. We always felt safe and supported by Jeff. We appreciated his attention to detail and dedication to closing the best deal possible for us. Never once did we feel pressured or misguided. It truly felt like we were working with a close member of the family! I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. These moments in time are as stressful as any in a person’s life and you’ll be so relieved to have Jeff in your corner, supporting you. Thank you Jeff for making the home buying process smooth and positive. We're so grateful for all the hard work and effort you put into helping us find our perfect first home! We couldn't have asked for a better person to work with!!!

We worked with Jeff Hunter of Royal Lepage Duncan Realty for the purchase of our new home on Vancouver Island. He had many challenges ahead of him. We and our Son and his family were looking for a house to share. We had a large list of wants and wishes and to top it off we were living in Ontario while they were living in Victoria. We headed to the Island for a visit and to spend a long weekend house hunting. We did not find a place on that trip but Jeff continued to work with our son and his wife. With the help of technology and Jeff’s expertise, our home was found and purchased within six weeks. We would highly recommend Jeff Hunter for your Real Estate needs. He is very knowledgeable, personable and thorough. He answered our questions in a timely manner and tidied up any loose ends quickly. Thank you Jeff for working through our wants and needs list and finding the perfect home for us.

Jeff Hunter is not only an outstanding realtor but he is a wonderful human being as well! We have bought and sold several homes over the years and have never worked with a realtor as good as Jeff is. We hired Jeff to sell our neighbor's home because she asked for our assistance. Jeff sold the home in less than two months and we were very happy for the price the home sold. Throughout the selling process Jeff always had a positive, reassuring attitude which we all felt. We would certainly recommend Jeff Hunter to sell anyone's home. He will do a great job.

Now this is a realtor who really cares! Buying and selling a home can be nerve racking, but with Jeff you feel confident that all will be fine. He is patient and does his best to understand your needs. He was there for me and my family 100%. I believe he went "over and above" to make us happy. Thanks Jeff!!

Meeting Jeff was the most fortunate thing that could have happened to my family this year. Jeff answered the call of our then (also excellent) realtor, when we were in a conflict. Jeff not only came on board on extremely short notice, but also met us at the property, negotiated a successful offer and was extremely thorough. While that offer did not pan out to be our place, we continued the relationship and over the next few months he continued to search and show potential homes while being very, very thorough and keeping our interest first and foremost. His clients come first, and he means it. He showed up with boots and gloves when we were under pressure to help us meet deadlines. His contracts are thorough and solid (and as a paralegal, I mean that!). Buying and selling, and especially for us, is an incredibly stressful time. He always checked in on us, talked us through the storm, and had the guts to pull me back when my ideas started to wander. We landed our dream property, and it was Jeff's negotiation and relationship building skills that made that happen. When hiring a realtor, you are also hiring an advocate. Jeff has you covered in all respects!

Jeff is truly the ideal realtor - business savvy with a heart of gold. My husband and I came to Jeff for help when another realtor hadn't dealt honestly with us. Jeff saved the day and found our family a great home on the island in a very hot market. Jeff truly cares and does his utmost to guide his clients through BC's increasingly complicated real estate landscape. He offers fabulous advice when needed, but ensures clients are always in the driver's seat. He is also very transparent in all his dealings and explains real estate rules and terms in a way that's easy to understand. Jeff also goes out of his way to make sure his clients are taken care of. He often drove long distances to help us view properties that might work for us and did virtual showings for us when we couldn't be there in person. When we sold our property due to changing life circumstances, Jeff checked on our place every three days to make sure it stayed in good condition. I highly recommend Jeff to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Cowichan Valley and beyond.

It came time to upgrade our family home as our family grew. I reached out to a friend who has worked with Jeff, and highly recommend him to us. Immediately Jeff got to work with us, visiting our home and meeting us to confirm that we were also a fit to work with him. Jeff guided us on how to best represent our property. Jeff even offered to help out with the prep... and literally showed up to help rake out the front yard soil for tha lawn. While prepping our property for sale, Jeff worked tirelessly looking for our next home that would best suite our needs. Jeff was always in contact with us, and helped keep us "cool" during the stress of selling and buying. Jeff was extremely professional, hard working, articulate to detail and made you feel like a valued client. I would recommend Jeff to any and all people who are looking for a realtor, and if I ever am looking for any further real-estate, Jeff is my first phone call. Jeff also really seemed to understand the emotional aspect of buying a home and making a big financial decision. He was patient and kind, and always had the time to review questions and strategy. I will be referring each and everyone I know to Jeff, and would love the pleasure of working with him again in the future. If you're looking for a hard working, dependable and knowledgeable real estate agent, don't pass up on Jeff Hunter!

My husband and I could not feel more thankful that we chose Jeff Hunter to be our realtor! We are an elderly couple and we had started looking for a home during the Covid-driven real estate buying panic. After 2-1/2 years of trying to not get caught up in the panic, we were getting desparate! Once we found Jeff, we were especially appreciative of his patiently listening to expressing our needs and listening to our questions especially at those times when we were also bordering on information overload. In spite of the fact that we wanted to live in rural community that was not within an easy reach of Jeff's office, he didn't hesitate to represent our search in the market of our choice. Shortly after we found a home that seemed to satisfy our needs, he very quickly brought in an impartial expert to access the structural integrity of the house that had won our hearts. Were it not for his guidance, we would have pursued this first piece of property and eventually found ourselves in financial quicksand. Now that Jeff had a solid understanding of our wants and needs, he then guided us to yet another house. This one passed home inspection without any devasting surprises. We are now a month into living in our new home and marvel each day that we are living in the home of our dreams. So no words can fully convey our gratitude to Jeff for his guidance throughout this process. It was very clear to us that Jeff cared deeply and that he absolutely had our best interest at heart! Again, we are so grateful for Jeff's hard work, dedication, being on top of every detail, and most important of all, his integrity. Neither my husband nor I ever expected any realtor to give so much of themselves. Jeff, you are incredible!

I worked at the office with Jeff and knew who I would want as my realtor if I ever needed one. Sure enough, when the time came to list my place in Duncan and find one in Victoria, I chose the right person! Honest, hard working, patient and exacting is what Jeff is all about. Would recommend him in a heartbeat. Such a great experience in what can be a most stressful time.

Our family had such a positive experience working with Jeff as our realtor! He really is excellent at his job and worked with us to find the perfect first home for our family. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the housing market, no pressure, and works hard to make the purchasing process as seamless as possible from start to finish. We so appreciated his approach, and his advice, and Jeff was endlessly patient as we dragged our two toddlers (and extended family) to almost every viewing. Thank you for all your guidance Jeff, I would recommend Jeff’s services to anyone looking to buy or sell! Jeff also really seemed to understand the emotional aspect of buying a home and making a big financial decision. He was patient and kind, and always had the time to review questions and strategy. I will be referring each and everyone I know to Jeff, and would love the pleasure of working with him again in the future. If you're looking for a hard working, dependable and knowledgeable real estate agent, don't pass up on Jeff Hunter!

I could not possibly have asked for a better real estate agent than Jeff. Through every step of the process of buying and selling a home Jeff was there to answer all of our questions extremely quickly and thoroughly. I was touched by Jeff's commitment to finding us a home that matched our vision while staying within our budget. I sincerely wish I had the disposable income to buy a second house just so I could work with Jeff again. You could not make a better choice to guide you through this process than Jeff.

Thank you so much Jeff Hunter Realty. Your continued help and support with the sale of my home was seemingly effortless. In an ever changing and difficult market you are simply the best. I would highly recommend Jeff Hunter if you're looking for a realtor. His care and attention to detail is both professional and personal at the same time. Thanks again for all that you do.

If you want THE BEST Realtor on the island ~ you want Jeff Hunter. From start to finish, from helping us narrow down what made a property just right for us to finding our perfect home Jeff was with us every step of the way. His expert negotiating skills helped ensure we were able to buy our home and his level of expertise ensured we didn’t end up buying a problem, over paying or selecting the wrong property. With the highest standards, incredible integrity and endless expertise in real estate you know you are working with the best. Our requirements were outside of typical home buyer perimeters and Jeff found us a home that not only met every one of our expansive “must haves” but that also checked every one of our “wish list” wants - and he found it within our first choice neighbourhood and in budget. Working with Jeff has been an absolute pleasure, and it is our honour and privilege to recommend him to anyone looking for a Realitor.

House hunting is like a box of chocolates, you never know what you're going get. With Jeff Hunter from Royal LePage, Duncan, I found the Realtor who was an understanding, hardworking, caring individual perfectly suited to my house-hunting needs.I was seeking: did I want country or city, quiet or buzzing, yard or no, did I see pets in my future, etc? Our initial conversations were both informative for Jeff and fun for me. Jeff worked tirelessly to find me a home I could afford. Thanks to Jeff, I found a 1300 sq.ft house in Ladysmith. Exactly the "box of chocolates" I sought.

Sadly, an unexpected, serious medical condition meant I had to sell the house nearly as soon as I purchased it. I was totally devastated by the circumstances. Jeff helped me to stay sane at a time that was horrific. To say Jeff had worked hard for me finding the house doesn't begin to describe how hard he worked, his long hours, compassionate phone calls plus all the extra efforts he put in to sell my home asap. How many Realtors do you know who would make sure the garden was tended, floors swept and later in the Autumn, make sure the house was winterized and ready to new owners? How many Realtors offer this kind of personalized service? Jeff does! Jeff is the most compassionate, thoughtful hardworking, humourous Realtor I've ever had the pleasure to meet and now call a friend.

I have no reservations whatsoever in recommending Jeff Hunter to you and your friends. The life experience Jeff brings to the job is one of gratitude and giving; his Realty skills are second to none and his personality is bright and professional.

Thank you Jeff Hunter for all your care and attention to detail in the sale of my home. I can't say enough good things. You took it upon yourself to learn about me and what my needs were. You made this almost painless for me, and that's a challenge on its own. If anyone is in need of a top-notch realtor in the valley, Jeff does a great job

Working with Jeff Hunter was like a breath of fresh air. He helped my partner and I purchase our first home together at the end of last year. Jeff helped make the house searching and buying process as smooth as possible. He was very knowledgeable, attentive, and timely, and was readily available as needed. He had a keen eye for areas requiring TLC and overhauls, and we really felt like he had 'our back' during the entire process. When Jeff said a place had good bones, we trusted in his judgement. Jeff also really seemed to understand the emotional aspect of buying a home and making a big financial decision. He was patient and kind, and always had the time to review questions and strategy. I will be referring each and everyone I know to Jeff, and would love the pleasure of working with him again in the future. If you're looking for a hard working, dependable and knowledgeable real estate agent, don't pass up on Jeff Hunter!

Jeff really was the perfect realtor for me to sell then buy: he is current, detail oriented, and resourceful from the first moments listening to the last signature finalizing contracts. Quickly, his integrity shone through in his dealings both in the way he worked with information and all parties involved.

Finding the right home, selling a loved home and moving are big multifaceted jobs: the ideal realtor should know enough and have the personality to handle whatever comes your way to make each step as easy as possible. I highly recommend Jeff Hunter for real estate dealings to get you where you want and what you want with care and attention.

We can only say good things about working with Jeff as our realtor. He quickly became our trusted advisor as we searched for our retirement property in the Cowichan Valley in 2020/21. We weren’t that familiar with the area, and Jeff steered us towards locations and properties that he felt would be a good fit for us. He listened carefully to our list of musts and wants for a property, and quickly understood our preferences. He got us! His candid, honest, professional approach gave us no doubt as to his high standards, ethics and integrity. He was always extremely responsive to every question or request we had. On top of that, Jeff really went the extra mile digging into the details of properties with us, particularly at a time in the market where we had to act quickly and decisively but didn’t want to make the wrong decision. We loved working with Jeff – he made our property search enjoyable – we love his sense of humour, frankness, and no b-s approach. With his support we were able to buy the perfect property for us, and we couldn’t be happier with our move to this amazing area on Vancouver Island.
