Welcome to Johannsen Group Realty Inc

The philosophy of the Johannsen Group has always been to provide the best service possible to our clientele and we have been doing so very successfully for over 26 years. Rule changes adopted in June 2018 by the Real Estate Board limited the type of service we were able to provide to our clientele as a team and so the idea of a boutique Real Estate Brokerage was born.

As a boutique Real Estate Brokerage, Johannsen Group Realty Inc is able to provide more personalized & flexible service while separating ourselves from the larger brokerages. In choosing to work with a Johannsen Group Realty Realtor, you not only get a comprehensive marketing plan & the support & personalized service of a knowledgeable and experienced Agent, but you will also have a group of independent agents all working to sell your home while still maintaining the confidentiality and code of ethics required by the new rules.

Continuing to offer the Award Winning Service you’ve come to expect, only better! Don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any questions.

Tips for Selling Your Home

“Maureen and I have done it many times and I can honestly say that the professionalism and excellent service that Kim and his entire team provided made this our best real estate experience yet – by far. I will highly recommend Kim Johannsen and the Johannsen Group to anyone I know who needs realty services!”

Mel S.

“You really do things right! …you and your team are a class act. I really felt like I was being taken care of by everyone – big and great team, you rock!”

Dale L.

“We had an unusual and, to us, unique experience of having your team sell our house while we were in Spain… We really felt that Theresa represented our needs very well throughout the negotiation process even though we were literally oceans apart”

Phillip & Madeleine

“We flew out to BC & had 3 days to view, select & put an offer in. Theresa was so well organized, having booked all our appointments in advance & researched each property, she was able to answer all our questions & provide valuable input. What could have been 3 stressful days was actually a very enjoyable experience…”

Jenn & Ryan T.

“We would just like to thank you so much for your professionalism and your decorum.  We are very, very, very impressed.”

Laurie L.

“Thank you so much for helping us find our new home. You made a daunting process fun and seamless.”

Laurel, Mike & Eliie-May

“We are thrilled to have worked with Theresa and your team…it made all the difference to us to be in such good hands…to be guided by people we trust!”

Dale & Simone

“I so appreciate your kind and professional team coming along side of me. It was a frightening prospect for a 90 year old senior but we did it! Thank you kindly Kim – both to you and your helpful group”

D. Powell

“..They were efficient, organized, and timely & help me through the process of prepping and listing the home. Their advice led to more showings and a quick sale at a good price I would recommend Kim and his team for any of your real estate needs.”

Dr. Anderson

“… in this bleak market you and your team again worked that magic for us and made the impossible possible! That magic is what keeps us coming back time after time! Your staff is amazing… courteous, knowledgeable, reliable and professional!”

Guy & Dalyce

“From the day we met with Kim to discuss selling our home until we had an accepted offer on our new house, the Johannsen Team were professional, respectful and caring. We won’t hesitate to recommend the Johannsen Team.”

D & R Barber

“I have received exemplary service, both with my sale of my condo with Michael McMullen (who asked me to share with you my pleasure in working with his team), and with Theresa for the purchase of my Chemainus home. They have both gone the extra mile for me, as well as being timely in service delivery, conscientious over every detail, and a delight to work with.”

Janet C.

“We had tried selling a while ago unsuccessfully so I took my time to hire the right agent. I interviewed & got proposals from a number of Realtors & chose Kim & his Team. To my satisfaction they keep me updated regularly as to who had seen the property & their thoughts on it & in fairly short order more than one offer (3 as a matter of fact) were generated & the house sold for “cash” & a good price.”

Beth Hardy

“From the moment I called the office, to the signing of the last of the paper work I was treated like I was a new friend. What should have been a stressful situation was actually a enjoyable experience that ended well with the purchase of my new home… It was truly a great experience and pleasure working with you.”

Genevieve Grieve

“…They walked and talked me thru the selling of my home and reassured my concerns. Any calls I made to them were returned promptly. I would not hesitate to list or sell with this group of agents. Thank you all for a very positive experience.”

Linda K

“The Johannsen Group sold our house in less than 2 weeks for 99% of the asking price. They also appraised our home at the highest value.  Their network, advertising and sales team made the process easy and efficient.  We trusted Kim to get us the best price in the least time and he delivered on his promise.”

Keith C

“…the overwhelming experience of downsizing from our family home was made lighter by your team’s care and attention. I would not hesitate to recommend the Johannsen team to anyone wanting to list or buy a home.”

Elizabeth N

“The entire Johannsen team not only represented us well, but were clear and professional in all communications, kept us updated consistently with marketing initiatives and news of, and from, interested buyers.  They went out of their way to listen to us, guide us, and simply make a difficult process clear and easy.”
