Testimonials

‘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.’

‘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

‘I highly recommend Deb Trand to help you find your ideal home in Fernie. It isn’t an easy task and Deb was always available to show us home after home until we found the one for us. She provided professional advice and guided us through the negotiation process with ease.’

JACQUI AND BILL ARLING

‘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.’

Mark & Mylena Goldie

‘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!’

‘This is the second time I’ve used Deb Trand as my realtor in Fernie. Deb is extremely knowledgeable and professional, adding to this her friendly demeanor and confidence, made my sometimes stressful situation so much easier to sail through. Most importantly, at the end of the day and for both occasions, I was left feeling extremely grateful I chose Deb as my realtor – I’m sure you will as well.’

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 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

Deb recently helped us to sell 2 quarter share units and purchase the perfect condo for our family. Her experience and knowledge of the market were impressive and gave us total confidence throughout the process. And communication was amazing, whether by phone, email or text (and even while she was on vacation). We were never left wondering or waiting on a response. She truly made this a stress free experience, and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to any of our friends or family.

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.

THE TYMKOWS, ALBERTA

‘We used Deb Trand’s services to both buy, and 13 years later, to sell our condo in Juniper Lodge (Fernie Alpine Resort). She was knowledgeable, responsive and provided good advice on both occasions. Our purchase and sale transactions both went smoothly. We would not hesitate to use Deb as our realtor again if we are looking to buy in Fernie again.’

Wade and Laureen Vienneau

Deb made the process of selling our Fernie property a breeze. The superb listing presentation of our condo, along with the internet and social media marketing, brought us plenty of traffic in a difficult market.  Deb has an extensive network in the Fernie area and she produced two buyers which enabled us to reduce the commission and negotiate an excellent price.  We couldn’t have asked for more!

Kevin and Cheri Burke- Gaffney

We bought our quarter share with Deb Trand 15 years ago. The experience was so positive that we asked Deb to repeat her magic when we decided to sell it. We couldn’t be happier. The time and attention Deb gave to the details was remarkable. She anticipated our questions and always provided timely advice. Our sale went through without a hitch and we were thankful we had Deb’s expertise and help. Deb Trand isa real professional in her field. If you are thinking of buying or selling a property in Fernie BC, give Deb Trand a call. You’ll be like us, happy that you did.

VICKI AND RICHARD GREEN

Testimonial Tuesday! It’s been a busy summer but I make client service my top priority!
‘Deb was an absolute pleasure to deal with on our recent real estate purchase. We were not in the same city we were buying in, and also right in the middle of the COVID pandemic and Deb did everything she could to make the experience positive and safe for our family. We felt like she was extremely personable and extremely knowledgeable on the valley. She also made it extremely easy to work with her remotely with excellent contacts for inspections, and also legal services. We would absolutely recommend Deb to anyone looking for a high value and trustworthy agent.’

CORBY

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

‘We owned a quarter share in Fernie at Juniper Lodge for approximately 3 years before deciding that we had to sell. We had bought our place from Deb Trand so naturally thought we should go back to her to assist us in selling our property. Deb was incredibly professional and communicated with us every step of the way knowing the market was slowing down and we were not sure how long it would take to sell. Deb featured our property on websites, conducted open houses and even went international when advertising our property! Having done all of that landed us a sale for our target asking price within only 9 months! We would not hesitate to refer Deb and her services as she is so familiar with Fernie and the real estate market, and willing to think outside the box. Thank you Deb for your great service!’

ANITA AND LINDSAY SUTHERLAND, ALBERTA

It has been a real pleasure dealing with you. Thanks for your timeliness, professionalism and always keeping us in the loop’

PAUL AND ARLENE DEVER, ALBERTA

‘Deb was fantastic to work with buying our property. She was responsive, very knowledgeable and professional. We were buying from out of province and not able to meet in person, but she was able to set up a virtual walk through for us.’

HOLMAN

‘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.’
