Testimonials

‘Thanks again for the seamless navigation of the condo sale.  It’s a complex system and there are no ways around the obstacles, but with your guidance we plowed through them with the utmost speed and efficiency.  Thank you.  Although it is highly unlikely that Nina and I will buy another FERNIE property, we will certainly recommend you should anyone ask.

‘Deb has assisted me twice over a ten year period in regards to purchasing property in Fernie. On both occasions she was the complete professional, offering timely and objective advice in regards to both options and process. I have no hesitation recommending Deb whether you are buying or selling.’

JOHN WHITE

Myron and I were very fortunate to have Deb Trand as our realtor. We bought the condo through her and she sold it for us 19 years later. Deb did an amazing job presenting the condo and had multiple offers just days after listing. Deb was very patient and accommodating. We would definitely go with Deb Trand again if we were to buy again in the area. Thank you Deb!

MYRON AND LYNETTE ESAK

‘Our family have been regular visitors to Fernie for almost 15 years. We met Deb Trand many years ago and were always impressed with her knowledge of Fernie, including the Fernie real estate market, her enthusiasm and excellent overall customer service. With Deb joining Century 21, we were able to engage Deb recently to help us sell our condo on the ski hill at Fernie (we recently upgraded to a bigger unit). Although Deb presented us with a comprehensive marketing plan to sell our unit, we had confidence in her based more on her reputation and integrity, and the fact that we had known her for so many years. In a relatively short time frame, we received offers for our unit with a resulting sale. We would not hesitate to recommend Deb to anyone looking for real estate in and around the Fernie area.”

JACQUI AND BILL ARLING

‘If you are looking to buy vacation property in Fernie, Deb Trand is the realtor you NEED to work with, she knows every detail about buying this type of property. We looked into a quarter share purchase about 9 years ago and the timing wasn’t right. We were very excited to find Deb again after all this time and she made the complicated transaction easy to handle, she patiently walked us through every step.’

MIKE AND TARA PHILLIPS

‘We wanted to pass along a huge thank you to our realtor, Deb Trand, who helped us with our recent town-home purchase at Fernie Alpine Resort. Her knowledge, professionalism, friendly manner and availability were exceptional. She helped us to navigate through a difficult negotiation then continued to guide us through all the red tape to possession day. We have no hesitation in highly recommending her to our family and friends.’

She is truly amazing, her knowledge of real estate covers every foreseeable outcome. Deb is truly caring, warm and personable, always a pleasure to talk to. It was like having a best friend as our realtor. You really are amazing to deal with”

THE TYMKOWS, ALBERTA

We highly recommend Deb Trand as your realtor. She not only sold our quarter share to us but helped us 8 years later to sell our property. Highly professional and well informed, she faithfully kept us up to date on the Fernie market and any showings of our property. It has certainly been a pleasure to work with Deb and we wouldn’t hesitate to do so again.

MARK & LYNN THOMSON

We have worked with Deb for buying and now also for selling, and it has been such a pleasure! She is knowledgeable, flexible, and very responsive. We were first time buyers and first time sellers, and she was patient with our questions and accommodating. Being local, she knows the town well and gave great advice. We would use her again and again and will always recommend to friends! ‘

Amy Robertson

Deb was recommended to us by a friend, and she did not disappoint. Friendly and professional, answering any questions honestly and quickly . We highly recommend her for all your real-estate needs.

‘Deb was excellent at helping us find a vacation property in Fernie. She communicated rapidly and helped us close in a short time period with minimal hassle. Would highly recommend!’

ROBINSON

We have been visiting Fernie since 2004 and fell in love with the town.  Back in 2007 we purchased a quarter share condo on the ski hill from Deb.  She was easy to work with, friendly, knowledgeable and down to earth.  Now over a decade later with two young boys we wanted to purchase something that we could call our own.  Deb had the patience to let us figure out what we wanted exactly by showing us multiple properties over the course of a year.  Once we had it ironed out, Deb would keep us constantly updated on the possibilities on the ski hill and how the market was looking.  Without hesitation we would use Deb for any real estate transaction in the Fernie area.

Lande & Laurelle Edmiston

‘I found Deb easy to work with, professional in all aspects of the sale and available any time we needed a question answered. She’s hard working and honest which helped make the sale of our Fernie home low stress.’

WENDY HOWSE, FERNIE

“We wanted to sell our 1/4 share unit in the Timberline Lodges at Fernie Alpine Resort. We asked Deb if she could help us by being our Real estate agent. She gladly accepted. Dealing with her was easy from the beginning to the end of the process. The communication was very efficient, even on the weekend when she was camping! She guided us through the whole process. We ended selling our condo quickly for a way higher price than what we expected! Thanks Deb for being so knowledgeable and professional. We would definitely recommend your services to anyone who intends to buy or sell in the Fernie area, or wherever you are providing real estate services!”  Francois Raymond

‘Our experience with Deb was excellent and we can’t recommend her services enough. She is patient, professional, thorough and not pushy. We really felt like she had our best interests in mind and worked hard to find us a property that ticked all our boxes. In a fast moving market she gave us the time we needed to think things through (did I mention she’s patient?). We also really appreciated how careful and thoughtful Deb was with regards to COVID protocols for both our families sake, and also the Sellers homes that we were going into. Deb was extremely diligent with her support through removing conditions and provided excellent resources for inspections and reporting all the way down to checklists. We’re hoping to not move for a very very long time, but if we ever do need real estate needs in the Elk Valley, Deb will be our representative.’

Nykayla Green

‘When we started our property search in Fernie, we were referred to Deb from friends. We are from Calgary which made our viewing availability very limited, but she was always willing to help coordinate a time that worked for us even if it meant taking up part of her weekend. She was also very patient while we narrowed in on exactly what we were looking for. We truly believe she was the key to our offer being accepted and grateful to her for helping us find our home away from home in Fernie!’

Tanjou Bell

“Thank you Deb for selling my house so quickly. You really made the process of selling seem easy and low stress. Your knowledge of the market is excellent and the professional photos and staging that you had done for my house really made a all the difference. “

LAURA WECKMAN, FERNIE

We would absolutely recommend Deb to any friends or family. She was always available to answer questions, going above and beyond to make our land purchase possible. Her calm demeanor smoothed out any road bumps along the way. Deb  is a true professional in her trade!”

BOB AND LUCY, FERNIE

‘We recently had the pleasure of working with Deb Trand.

Our search for property in Fernie was fast and furious and so was our search for a realtor. We contacted Deb based on her background, experience and invaluable reviews.

Deb quickly put together a list of properties, comparables and general information based on our criteria. We met Deb a couple of weeks later and spent the afternoon viewing potential listings as well as driving us around the various communities. Deb provided us with history, what’s new, what coming and all that Fernie has to offer! Together we found the perfect property and we can’t wait to spend time in Fernie and become part of the community.

From start to finish, the process and communication was first-rate. Deb is professional, experienced, very personable and down to earth. She is resourceful and well connected and has gone beyond to get our questions answered. She was a delight to work with.’ Tracy Bialowas

‘For anyone wishing to market their property in the Fernie area, we highly recommend Ms.Deb Trand. She is very experienced and knowledgeable about marketing such properties, a hard worker, great communicator, and a straight, no nonsense, shooter. She also worked and coordinated seamlessly with our “Seller’s Attorney” , our property tax accountant, and others who played a role in the transfer process. For anyone coming to Fernie to enjoy its wonderful outdoor setting, its passions for skiing, fishing, biking etc., Deb knows it, and has done it herself, so that she can well relate to those wishing to become part of the Fernie Community.

Thank you Deb .’

LOIS & ELDON G.

“Deb Trand is great to work with. She is professional and personable. She was representing both seller and buyer(me) for the property. I feel she did a great job managing this. She was good at walking me through the process and always quick at answering any questions”

LAURA YOUNGBERG

‘When we came to sell our unit at Snow Creek Lodge, Fernie Hill, we chose Deb Trand as our Realtor as she had been involved in the original purchase.
Deb was an amazing help to us. We are not familiar with the Canadian system and Deb supplied us with and guided us through the completion of all the necessary forms. She advised us on whom to choose as a lawyer and followed the process through to Transaction Date.
On a personal level, Deb always replied promptly and professionally to our emails which, as we live in a different time-zone to Canada, was very important to us. We have met her on various occasions and she is a charming and friendly person, thoughtful and considerate, with a good eye for detail.
The sale of our property was seamless and this can be attributed to Deb’s professionalism and courtesy. We cannot recommend her more highly.’

ANNA AND GRAHAM ROSS, JAPAN

Deb was fantastic to work with selling our quarter share property. She was knowledgeable, responsive, and professional. Her advice throughout the transaction was clear and accurate. We would highly recommend her for any real estate transactions in Fernie and area.
