We have engaged Andrea to manage the rental of our home in lower Gibsons.
She initially located a suitable tenant, drew up the appropriate contracts, then managed the day to day financial and maintenance issues. During this time, we experienced a major heating and associated water damage situation. This was handled professionally and effectively and was a true test of her services. We were out of the country at the time, and totally relieved to know all was in good hands!
Her communication is excellent, covering financial statements as well as general status updates. She also has an established network of maintenance and service contacts.
We highly recommend Andrea for any real estate management services, and have recently renewed our contract for her services. – Andy & Kathleen Harper
Andrea found us a great tenant in a short time for our property in Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast. In the past we’ve rented out our property ourselves and have found it time consuming and stressful. The tenancy agreement that Andrea uses covers off many things we hadn’t thought about putting in writing before and we’re very pleased to have it in place. She was also willing to show our home on weekends and evenings which made it easier for working people to view and returned our calls and emails promptly. I feel confident about referring Andrea to our friends and neighbours, I know she will take great care of them. – Kim Monk, Gibsons, BC
Andrea monitors our house for us when we’re away and we could not be happier with the service. She provides regular interior and exterior checks of the property and this was especially helpful one winter when our furnace froze up. We were told by the heating repairman that had she not noted the problem quickly, the improper wiring responsible for the malfunction may have led to a fire. Andrea is a great communicator and we are reassured by her timely emails and phone calls which have alerted us to potential problems while we are away. On our last visit we took advantage of the cleaning service she arranged and after an exhausting day of travel we arrived to a clean home, fresh bedding and even some fresh flowers. It’s wonderful to leave the house knowing that it will be checked and cared for properly! — Erika F., Gibsons, BC
As a property manager on the Sunshine Coast, Andrea Kerr is a person, not a process. As a telecommuting couple of professionals from Vancouver, we were interested in a rental property in Gibsons prior to making the leap to purchase. Andrea completely understood our needs, matched us with homes of similar style and caliber to the one we had just sold, and went above and beyond to match make us with our new landlords, who have become friends. At the same time, she is scrupulous in protecting the rental assets, documenting the existing condition of the home, checking smoke detectors, insurance and addressing any outstanding concerns or maintenance issues. She is a delight to deal with and I heartily recommend her to tenants searching for the right rental and also to landlords who want the peace of mind of knowing their property will be rented to responsible tenants who will care for it like their own. – J Piros, Gibsons, BC
Moving my young family from sunny rural Africa to Gibson’s meant I needed to make everyone happy especially my husband who has never lived in the Northern hemisphere. Andrea not only found our family a beautiful house within our budget – she found us an immediate home. My kids will now have the chance to start their young Canadian lives just as I grew up; a great adventure surrounded by forests, the ocean and an authentic community of people. Thank you Andrea – xo Sue Standfield-Spooner
