Client Testimonials

As a first time real estate investor new to the Port Alberni area and living in Vancouver, I was very impressed by the knowledge, service and customer support provided by The Fenton Team. The Fenton Team narrowed down the list of properties that represent the best current economic opportunities of the area in my price range, and provided efficient viewing appointments in the intervals of time I travelled to Vancouver Island. The Fenton Team always made me feel close to the Port Alberni real estate market even though I live out of town.

The Fenton Team was very patient and was able to answer all of my questions related to investing in Port Alberni and owning rental property in general. I never at any time felt rushed to make a purchase decision and always felt comfortable knowing that The Fenton Team is on the constant lookout for properties fitting my description in my absence. I have always felt comfortable working with The Fenton Team and believe that everyone constantly worked together for my well being.

I worked with The Fenton Team during the process of looking for and buying my first home. The website is a breeze to use and I loved the daily updates of new listings within our price range. Our Realtor Andrea Knoll was fast in action and responses. She was able to quickly arrange viewings for us on short notice when requested. I would be happy to recommend The Fenton team to any new clients as it was a pleasure to work with both Chris Fenton and Andrea Knoll.

Katrina Sundquist

From the moment we listed with The Fenton Team, they were the most professional, cordial, and friendly team to work with.  I was particularly impressed with the market analysis and strategy, and also the honest feedback and recommendations.  I was pleasantly surprised at the quickness of the sale and the closing price that was attained.  I would recommend The Fenton Team to anyone I know who is planning to sell their property in the Alberni Valley.

Matt & Elma Baxter

I am totally blown away by the efficiency, expertise and commitment shown by the Fenton Team in the sale of our home! We were in a tricky position of 'condition of sale' in order for us to purchase our next home and they had sold our home within a couple days of listing!!! They were great at guiding me through the process, never having sold a home before and gave me piece of mind with the biggest purchase of my life!

Sarah Williams

I must say, we were so lucky when we found Andrea Knoll from The Fenton Team!

I can't speak highly enough of our experience with Andrea. She helped us strategically navigate thru a foreclosure with Lawyers, Judges other real estate offers and re-offers. In the end, we were able to acquire the property at the price point we wanted.

Andrea was very professional and genuine and she was always available to answer our questions. (anytime) which was awesome!!

The whole experience of buying Real Estate can be daunting and overwhelming at times, however Andrea was there every step of way advising us with small and large updates.

I would totally recommend Andrea from The Fenton Team, and I'm sure you wouldn't be disappointed.

Thanks Fenton Team and a special thanks to Andrea!

Ed Dicks

I would like to thank the Fenton Team, especially Chris Fenton for the calm honest manner in his approach. It was a emotional trying time selling our parent's home and the guidance we were given through each step was excellent. Whether buying or selling, I highly recommend the Fenton Team!

Paul and Jody Harraway

Mine was a commercial listing and, in that field, I've found it difficult to find Realtors who take both a professional and personal approach. Chris Fenton took my listing and paid close attention to my perspectives and needs in marketing. He created an on-line presence, including the new surround video, that was engaging and full of details. He has a broad network for commercial marketing and the information went out very quickly.

We had an attractive offer in four days. Chris then proceeded with respect and skill to negotiate an excellent closing price. Esther Fenton represented the buyer and between her and Chris, the communications for buyer and seller were accurate and seamless. Both Chris and Esther were very knowledgeable and sensitive. The support team obviously did a great job also to keep the process moving. My communication avenues were direct to Chris and Esther. Every question was answered, every email, text and phone call received quick attention.

Our closing date was fast and I'm on to my new adventures. Thank you Chris and Esther!

Shirley Avril

Esther, of The Fenton Team, worked with us for many months until we could make our purchase. Living out of the area made our search more of a challenge for us, yet Esther was always willing to show us properties at short notice, greeted us with a smile, and never any pressure. She is totally knowledgeable and a great negotiator.


Bernard & Vivienne Mays 

My husband and I have had a very positive experience with The Fenton Team helping us find our new home in Port Alberni. Their acute sense of what might have interested us and showing only those properties, with questions or concerns dealt with quickly, made the whole experience very pleasant. We would highly recommend The Fenton Team.

Denise Freeman

I recently listed my home with Chris Fenton of the The Fenton Team.  Chris impressed me with his professionalism and knowledge of the local real estate market at our first meeting when he presented me with a thorough market evaluation on which he based the listing price for my home.  Chris was right on with his pricing suggestion and I’m happy to say my home sold soon after being listed.

The high level of service continued through the sales process.  Attractive interior and exterior photos of my house were placed on numerous websites including, at local businesses and in a beautiful colour brochure for potential buyers to take away after viewings.  Chris and Esther kept in regular contact with me, setting up showings and providing feedback afterwards.

Chris and Esther are a pleasant, professional team and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking to buy or sell real estate in the Alberni Valley.

Nanette Field

I chose the Fenton Team for three reasons:  the comprehensive breadth of their marketing; their 'whole-team' approach; and the fact that they are hard-working, good people.  My house sold in three weeks!

Kathy Roth

The Fenton Team was wonderful to work with. They made it easy for us at a very stressful time when looking for our first home. They showed us everything we wanted to look at and never tried to push the sale on us. They answered any questions we had no matter what time of the day it was. They were patient and considerate with us when we were unsure of what we wanted.

Lanie Veenkamp

Chris Fenton and Esther Fenton were an integral part in selling my house in Port Alberni. They're very professional, helpful, and they work with integrity which I appreciate. I definitely recommend the Fenton Team!

Travis Bonneteau

We would like to thank our agents Chris & Esther for all the hard work they put in to help sell our house and buy our new home.  We have used Esther & Chris now for four homes we have bought and sold.  

Esther you have run us around looking at houses for four years, thank you. Chris the pictures you took and the brochures you made up were great while the drone video was fantastic.

We cannot say enough about your service as Real Estate Agents and your great way of dealing with people. We could not ask for more. Keep up the good work.

June Tall and Rick Lazell

After being out of the market for 25 years we had forgotten the stress of selling and buying. Having Chris and Esther working with us made the whole process so much easier. They felt more like trusted friends than the professional realtors they are. It seemed just as as a question or concern arose , the phone would ring, and any concerns were immediately put aside. I think we chose very wisely and feel they went above and beyond in their efforts for us. Thank you both so much and I highly recommend The Fenton Team. Happy Holidays Chris, Esther and team.

Al & Debbie Kyle

Chris & Esther sold our multi family much faster and for more money than we thought we could get. Thank you! My wife and I both recommend The Fenton Team!

Jim Dumont

Much gratitude to Esther and Chris forworking so diligently to sell our home. They have been very kind, efficient, and respectful of our circumstances. Their superb support of their clients throughout negotiations of buying and selling a home/property has been exemplariliy. We highly recommend their services when selling or buying a home. Thank you The Fenton Team!

Jim & June McInroy

We have been in the real estate market since last Summer, in multiple different cities, where we haven't always had the best realtor experience. And then we found Esther! She is professional, efficient, tuned into the needs of the buyers (and the sellers) to make the experience of buying a home a seamless one. We had a planned one afternoon to look at homes, and sent her a few listings that we thought we might like, and then she filled in a few more properties for us to look at based on a very limited list of specs and she nailed it. We ended up making an offer at the end of that same day, and now own our dream home. Add to that they have this 3D tour feature that is off the charts amazing! How cool to be able to tour through the houses when you come back home and want to "see" the house again. Might I add, the pictures reflect what the home actually looks like when you see it in person. We have had to work with Esther from the city of Vancouver for the entire buying process, and she made the whole experience so easy, from providing us with everything we needed via email, to enabling us to e-sign all of the documents required. I will highly recommend The Fenton Team for any buying and selling needs for years to come.

Nadia Davis

We have recently sold our house in Port Alberni. We engaged the Fenton team. Chris and Esther were very professional in handling the sale, very quick and efficient. They are working with an excellent professional photographer, who was able to showcase our property very effectively for online viewing. Chris did an excellent job marketing our property, and subsequently it was sold within weeks. I would also like to point out that Chris has been an excellent negotiator on our behalf, and we are very pleased with the results of the sale, and his professional expertise. We can highly recommend the Fenton Team, you will not be disappointed.

Thomas Dietzel & Carla Pavan

I can't thank Esther enough for the methodical and caring service she provided during our search for the perfect home here in Port Alberni. So informative and with amazing precision we were shown numerous properties we could call home, and with such short notice. The Fenton Team made locating, buying and finalizing our purchase so easy and seamless that I'm still wondering how my dreams came true so quickly and painlessly. Thank you all so much.

Rance Bueckert

I met Esther, from The Fenton Team, by phoning her up and asking to see a home I had driven by previously. We were complete strangers but she treated me in a professional yet down to earth manner. She also immediately lined up other similar homes for me to look at. As I was from out of town I appreciated that she didn't waste my time. Yet I never felt rushed or pressured. Of course I bought the first house! Thank-you The Fenton Team!

Great team to work with. We had the pleasure of working with both Chris Fenton and Esther Fenton. I cannot recommend them enough. Our situation (for purchasing) was a little strange but they took it in stride and helped us find our dream home. Sadly sometimes dreams don't work out and when plans changed they helped us sell it 2 years later and we walked away with money in our pockets.

If you are buying or selling The Fenton Team will be as good to you as they were to us. We appreciate what they did for us and you will too.  

Glenn McCallum

Happy to share my experience in purchasing a house in Port Alberni with help of Esther (from searching, negotiation with seller, legal & financial processes and after purchasing even maintenance of the house!) with you. And hope this could be helpful for you. Mine was a very long distance purchasing. Also I don't have family here close me to rely on during the whole process. Then, Esther, from the beginning, helped me not only professionally but also so naturally warm and friendly. I trust her! Now all processes have done and I am looking back. It was so smooth and I am satisfied with everything.

Taekwon Kwon

The Fenton Team was extremely helpful for me as a first time home owner. They were organized, helpful and available to answer my questions any time, day or night. They made the process of buying my first home smooth and as stress free as possible.
