Protecting your largest financial transaction

You want professionalism but you don’t want an agent that’s unapproachable or distant. You want an agent that’s dedicated to your sale, but also available to walk you through every step and review every detail so that you’re comfortable in the process. You need someone on your side, someone who can intelligently develop and clearly articulate the best course of action while still being receptive to your ideas and willing to work collaboratively.

When you choose Martin Velsen to represent you, I know that you’re entrusting me and my entire team with what’s likely your biggest investment, but also a sentimental and meaningful asset that carries immense emotional attachment. We never lose sight of this.

Deciding to list your property with my team doesn’t just mean that you’ve become one of our cherished clients, but you’re now an essential part of our team. As such, we treat you like a colleague and a friend because we believe in fostering long-term relationships with everyone we work with.

“Martin is one of the most respected realtors in Nanaimo. He has looked after numerous deals for us and been outstanding in looking out for our interests.”

— Jane Alexander

  • Arranging cleaners for the home to restore its original shine
  • Arranging home staging to colourfully tell the story of your unique home
  • Suggesting and arranging landscaping of the outdoor space to elevate the property’s curb appeal
