Marketing

Dale,

Thank you for your dedication, perseverance and patience in what has turned out to be a long journey to provide us with the perfect home. It has been a wonderful experience working with you the past 9 years. Thank you for your authenticity. Without hesitation we will continue to highly recommend you to our family and friends.

Hello Dale

Thank you!

Thank you also for being our Agent in the selling of our house. Once we got the asking price in
the right ball park, it was actually surprising how fast the house sold!

Our next door neighbour had been talking to the owners of the houses that are for sale down the
street heading south & on the same side of the street as our house and the owner of that house
was saying to our neighbour that Norm’s & my house was the last house on the street to be listed
& the first sold.

Our neighbour simply replied “they priced it right”. I have noticed that that owner has now
lowered his asking price by $10,000.00, but it is still not selling, and my guess is that it won’t
until he lowers way more. Just another confirmation for us that in today’s market, houses on that
street are really only worth around the $430,000 to $440,000 mark.

Thanks for the offer to find us an Agent in Penticton. If the one I have already talked with does
not pan out, then I certainly will contact you for a referral to another one.

Take care Dale & thanks again!

Sincerely

Laureen & Norm


 

To Whom it May Concern:

I am writing to give Dale Sheppard my highest recommendation. He helped us find a home and provided valuable guidance throughout the process. Dale's knowledge of waterfront and water view properties and the unique issues surrounding them helped us make the right decision. He advised us against purchasing a particular property due to the need to complete an Archeological Impact Assessment. He provided us with the necessary contacts within the government agencies that dealt with this problem and valuable counsel that steered us away from that particular purchase.

We first met Dale when we owned a business and a commercial piece of property. He was representing the purchaser and we felt that he negotiated very fairly. We were impressed with his forthright manner and honesty.

In our most recent waterfront purchase Dale sourced out the processes that we weren't familiar with and facilitated a smooth sale. His negotiating skills and knowledge of the market, particularly waterfront properties were very evident. Dale possesses all the attributes necessary to be an excellent real estate broker: he knows the market extremely well; is responsive, and yet very patient with clients. Dale is both very professional and personable.

Dear Dale,

Hope that this note finds you and your family keeping well and happy. I want to say a big thank you for your help during a very difficult time for me. You did an excellent job of selling our beautiful home so quickly. We all wish you and your family the very best. I’m still waiting for my suite, will be nice to get settled in my own place again. Thanks so much for all your hard work. Take care.

Sincerely,

My wife Karen and I had the fortunate opportunity to be represented by Dale Sheppard in our quest to purchase a home in 2010.  Simply put his participation is a major factor in our happiness at our new home.
Dale is the knowledgeable professional!  The awareness research and advice was outstanding.  Every step of the way was proactive and informative.  Where I needed to step out and investigate on my own his advice & helpful direction was clear and exact.  Performance, character, skill, knowledge, communication and patience are top tier.  His knowledge of the market and people are shockingly apparent in his outstanding negotiating skill.

We recommend Dale Sheppard to anyone looking for quality representation.

Sincerely

Brent & Karen Jackman


 

I have known Dale for approximately seven years and during that time he has sold two real estate properties for me and assisted me with the purchase of two new properties.

Through both the selling and purchasing processes, I found Dale to be extremely professional yet understanding toward both parties involved in each of the transactions. He has always been punctual with respect to appointment times and efficient with communication from both the sellers’ and the buyers’ standpoint. I wouldn’t hesitate to enlist Dales’ services in any future real estate ventures and highly recommend him – you won’t be disappointed.

Dear Dale,

Rose and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your hard work and dedication in both selling our condominium and purchasing our townhouse.

Rose and I had never previously sold a property before, and your guidance to us in preparing and showing the property were invaluable. We were both very impressed with your professional and helpful approach right from our  initial interview with you, and the high standard of work you showed throughout the process. We also both really appreciated the amount of time you took in listening to us regarding what we wanted in our new property and making suggestions in areas we hadn’t considered. Given that our purchase process was complicated somewhat by my military duties, we were also both very happy with the extra effort you went to in making sure that everything was done promptly and in such a manner as to reduce the amount of running around.

We don’t anticipate selling our home in the near future, but if we do we will certainly contact you again and ask you to represent our interests, always assuming you haven’t taken a well-earned retirement by that time.

Please feel free to reproduce this letter for future prospective clients, as we would happily recommend your services to them.

Yours truly,

Bill Underhill

To whom this may concern

Dale Sheppard sold my home after having it on the market after only 2 days, getting me a price that most other realtors had said was too high. My home was on the market with PRIVATE HOME/SELLERS for approximately 3 months and I couldn’t sell it even when it was priced lower than Dale sold my home for in 2 days.

Dale was very professional and to the point. He didn’t bore me with things that weren’t important to me. He gave me the important facts only. Dale was very well informed on the market conditions. Dale is very a very enthusiastic, knowledgeable Realtor who keeps seeing the positive in everything and it worked for me.

My home had been given an anticipated selling price of $210,000 to $220,000 by 2 other Realtors and Dale sold it for $228,500.
Thanks again to Dale Sheppard for doing such a great job for me.

To whom it may concern,

I’ve known Mr. Dale Sheppard for several years, and when it came time to sell our home, Dale was one of several who we gave consideration to in selecting a realtor to assist in marketing our home.

Mr Sheppard’s honesty, integrity and diligence in giving consistent effort, his attention to detail, and most of all his never losing site of the fact that he works for and in the best interest of the seller proved to my satisfaction that we made the correct choice in selecting him to represent us in the sale of our property.

I highly recommend that anyone intent on the sale of their home should strongly consider listing with Dale. I’m sure your decision will be rewarded by his sound judgement and hard work.

I would be quite happy to respond by phone to anyone wishing further reference regarding Mr Sheppard.

From the beginning we felt well advised, which helped ease the pressure of purchasing our new home. Your prompt response to our questions and concerns, and your attention to detail made us feel very confident that we were receiving the best service that we could.

Please be sure that if and when the opportunity arises, we would not hesitate to recommend your services to friends and family.
Thank you again. We love our house.

Yours truly,

Dear Dale,

Terry and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for selling our home in a professional manner. We enjoyed working with you and appreciated your ability to work around our pets, children and our work schedules.

We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone interested in selling their home.

Sincerely,

To future clients of Dale Sheppard,

I had the opportunity to have Dale handle the listing and sale of my home in the spring.

I found Dale to be very hard working, open to new ideas and innovative ways to attract prospective buyers, and always on top of the market and what was happening in the Victoria real estate scene.

Over the duration that my home was listed, Dale worked tirelessly to attract buyers, always following up after they had viewed the house, and suggesting ways that I could make my home more attractive.

I found Dale to be careful, honest and to have a great deal of integrity. I would certainly contact him again should I decide to undertake another real estate transaction in the Victoria area.

To those reading this letter, all the best for a quick sale of your home.

Sincerely,

Dyan Grant-Francis

 

 

Dear Dale Sheppard,

Andrew and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for helping us purchase our home. Not knowing how to go about purchasing a home, you answered our many questions and walked us through step by step and made it a positive experience.

You found us exactly what we wanted in a very short time.

You are a great negotiator (Thanks for the hot tub)

Your name came to us highly recommended and we will recommend you to our friends and family.
Thanks again Dale.

We wish you a great future and many more transactions.

Sincerely

Andrew and Jacqueline Olexa


 

We would like to take this opportunity (slightly belated) to express our sincere appreciation of the commendable manner in which Mr Dale Sheppard handled the sale of (our) property. We were very impressed with his expertise, his professionalism and his dedication “over and above the call of duty”, in order to effect a rapid sale of our home in a depressed market.

Thank you very much Dale. May you continue to enjoy success and satisfaction in your chosen career. Please feel free to use our name should you ever require a reference;

With sincere good wishes,

Michael and Mary Jane Phillips

 

 

Dale,

Wayne & I want to thank you for all of you efforts throughout the sale of our house and the purchase of our new home.
As you know, buying and selling a home is a very emotional and stressful time in one’s life and we appreciated your patience, courtesy and professionalism.

Please enjoy a nice dinner on us as a small token of our appreciation!

Shelia & Wayne

 

 

Dale Sheppard,

Mrs Hornsberger and I wish to express our appreciation in the manner you utilized your experience in selling our unit at Grand Oaks.
Your knowledge and energy put into play was quite evident in completing the sale. For this we thank you.

We wish you a good future and many more sales.
Sincerely,

Elsie and John Hornsberger

 

 

Dear Dale,

I just wanted to tell you that everything went fine with the purchase of my home and I am now getting settled.

I’d like to thank you very much for the professional service you provided. As you know I have generally a bad opinion about real estate people – but you were really the glorious exception. I appreciated especially your knowledge of any neighbourhood around Victoria and your trustful advice on the quality and prices of the houses we looked at.

I will definitely recommend you to any of my friends when they look for purchasing a house. And I’ll definitely come back to you if I want to purchase a different house.

Hi Dale,

Just a short note to convey our thanks in providing us with “A1” services over the last few months. Without your hard work and efforts, this deal would not have materialized.

You went well beyond in taking all measures possible for the deal to proceed and at the same time provided us with high level of services in a very professional manner.

Dale,

Thanks again to you and Garry for your professional services & I hope I don’t have to sell for many years now-but you will be the first I will call or recommend to others.

Cheers,

Peter and Trish McAuliffe

 


Dear Dale,

Gary and myself would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your outstanding performance in selling our home. You kept us informed and up to date which made us feel comfortable and at ease with looking after our home.

We would be extremely happy to recommend you to any of our friends as a professional real estate agent who took care of our needs and concerns far and beyond your duties to us.

We wish you much success in your future years with selling real estate.
Best wishes from the Annison’s – Ann and Gary

Dale showed us that it was possible to sell our town home and buy the house of our dreams in what we thought was a tough market.
Once we had our home on the market, Dale quickly began marketing our home while finding us possible homes to buy. Upon finding the house we liked, not only did Dale help negotiate a good price for it, but he also managed to sell our home on time for us to secure our new home purchase.

We would gladly recommend Dale to anyone interested in buying or selling real estate. He was genuinely concerned in accomplishing what we wanted, and always placed our needs first.

Sincerely,

The Davies

 

 

Dale,

Just a wee thanks for everything you have done for me with the sale and purchase.

You definitely go above and beyond what is expected of you. Thought you could use the gift card towards anything, toward your house or yard or even towards a power tool. Just think of Tim Allen in the show home improvement. (Just don’t be an accident looking for a place to happen, like him!) HAHAHA

Thanks for everything!

Cathy Laycock

 

 

Dear Dale,

We just wanted to thank you for your help in finding us our new home. We are all settled in and have done some minor renovations (the hardwood floors are beautiful). We can’t wait to start on the garden.

Your service was excellent and we were very happy Pat Robbins referred you to us. As first time homebuyers, we had a lot of questions and inquiries. You were very patient and helpful in answering all of them. Buying a new home can be very stressful especially the first time, but you walked us through it, step by step and made it a positive experience.

We gave you a long list of what we wanted for our meagre price range and you, amazingly enough, found us exactly what we wanted. We wanted to thank you for all the extra work you did in regards to this sale. You are a tough negotiator and you gave us proper council throughout the entire process, to the point of almost walking away from the deal.

We already have and will continue to recommend you to all our friends and family. And in the future, we will definitely deal with you again. Both of us thank you so much and wish you the best with everything.

Nick and Alexa
