Brian and Janice DeLong

Thank you for your exceptional service in getting us into our new home, you went beyond what we expected by providing out if your own sacrifice the things that made our home even more special. You showed concern that everything was right as though it was your own house, not to mention your continued friendly manner that we have experienced in the past. We also wish to thank Lesley White (&Pat) for they were a great help to us and a delight to deal with during our buying experience. We will definitely continue to recommend to all our friends. Thanks again.

Mike and Sandy James

Russ- the patience you showed us over the years it took to find our dream home is something we will never forget. You never treated us like lookie-loos but always with respect. When our priorities changed because of a car accident, you met the challenge and our dream home became a reality.  You put us in touch with qualified people in the area to handle inspections, repairs, financing, mortgages, and helped to make it all easy. When the time comes for us to move again, you will be the first we call and the one we always recommend to others.

Dorine and Carlos

We were both grateful for the wonderful job you did. You were very honest with everything which was noticed and appreciated. It made us feel safe and confident that you were doing the best for both parties. Everyone likes money, but most of us don’t want to get it at someone else’s expense. Those values seem to be shared by your agency and made me feel proud to have you as an agent! You are representing people who live in the same community so that is important. To sum up; honesty, hard work, efficiency and helpfulness are words we would use to describe our experience with you.  I don’t believe we could have received better service. We will continue to recommend you and will contact you if we need an agent in the future.

Odette Huculak & Al Huculak

Our last purchase with Jim was excellent. Jim kept us up to date on a daily basis with what the market was offering. We got to know Jim well and we appreciated his expertise and professionalism. Jim also got to know very well and as soon as the house we eventually purchases become available he brew without a doubt that the house was the one for us. Thank you, Jim and Russ for giving us such good service. 

Nina Klassen

We wanted to thank you for your help in helping us not only selling our Abbotsford home but for all of your work, and the excellent service from your team, in finding us our dream home in Chilliwack. No matter how many times we changes our minds and re-directed our focus, you were able to come up with options and properties to look at. As personal as we both found you, you were always professional and honest with us. We were incredibly happy and impresses with how quickly you responded to all our questions and inquires, as well as how available you were to us. We have and will continue to passionately and whole heartedly recommend you and your team to anyone that is looking to jump into the housing market.

Dennine and Chuck Henderson

We just wanted to let you know how much we appreciated all you did for us! You are so wonderful at what you do and we are so glad to have met you. You really were impressive from beginning to end and we will be sure to contact you when that time comes to make a move. Thank you!

Bob & Merilee Nicol

We would like to express our appreciation for a job well done.  Starting with the discussion at our kitchen table, when we first met Russ, and he told us what he would do for us, through to the final signing re the sale of our home and the subsequent purchase of our new home, your team did exactly what you said you would do for us.  The advertising, communication, advice and explanation of the paper work, left us to think that we were your only clients.  It was a pleasure to deal with a team of professionals.

Our thanks to Russ, Michelle and Gert, and a special thank you to Janette who persevered with us right to the final signing.  -Bob and Merilee Nicol

Susan Vivian

From ‘day one’ Wendy took our listing and handled it with professionalism, expertise and the best in class customer service. Wendy arranged a house stager who offered fresh insight, advice and recommendations to make our house shine.  A professional photographer took flattering pictures that showed nicely on MLS to promote our home. Above everything Wendy’s communication was exemplary. We had a large number of showings and I was notified immediately and given time to prepare and was provided feedback on every showing. Wendy replied promptly to any questions or concerns I had and kept in close contact with me at all times.   Wendy not only sold our house in good time but she assisted me with the purchase of a new house. This was an emotional time for me as I was also dealing with the end of a 25-year marriage. Wendy’s knowledge of the area and her personal experience provided me with guidance, support and a sense of comfort through the entire process. I knew I was in good hands and was being represented by a realtor with integrity, knowledge and involvement in my community. I would recommend Wendy highly to anyone who is interested in selling or buying property. Wendy is a real gem and true asset to the Russ Bailie Team!

Allison Salter

Jim McNeil was our agent in Chilliwack. We couldn’t have asked for a better experience. Jim was very patient and took the time find properties that matched our interests. It was my first home buying experience- and I have to say that it was a lot of fun. My parents were also very impressed. I would highly recommend Jim if you have other clients that are looking to buy in that area.

Olive and Rodney Alcock

Val and I want to express to you our sincere gratitude for the truly superb services you provided us throughout the sale of our detached home in Chilliwack earlier this year. Your ‘Russ Bailie Team’ certainly provides a complete package and you are the master of all its aspects, as well as an astute negotiator when the fruits of your labors quickly result in offers.

You applied your best abilities and met with success within a very short period of time, due to your diligence and knowledge of the market. What has always impresses us is that you do not stop with doing your “homework” on appropriate pricing and placement in the market place; you continued to follow through with every aspect of marketing. You captures the essence of our property in your beautifully produced feature-sheets and the Virtual Tour. Not a stone is left unturned, including giving us regular feedback on the viewings which was truly appreciated. Your team efforts resulted in a number of offers and finally a well negotiated price

After the collapse of our sale due to the purchase being unable to complete, the amazing speed and efficiency with which you put a new business plan in motion, secured other prospective buyers and organized several immediate showings was really quite remarkable. Russ, you moves from re- listing our home to a signed contract of purchase within only 5 days of the collapsed sale Awesome, especially considering that there was no longer a stick of furniture in our home. During that time, albeit short, your counseling and guidance in assisting us with the legal aspects of this particular problem was very much appreciated.

Russ, all of the foregoing was accomplished with such warmth, enthusiasm, courtesy, and the utmost patience and with full regard and attention to our aims and objectives. A stellar job! You have our undying gratitude for your service and utmost respect for your talents and dedication.

It is without hesitation that we say you have our admiration and thanks for a job well done. We know you will have continued success in your bright future.

Needless to say, once we sell our current home here on Vancouver Island we will be looking for your guidance in helping us locate a new property to meet our needs and within our budget.

As well we are certainly recommending the service of ’The Russ Bailie Team’ to all our friends and acquaintances.

Martha and Duane Goertson

Both the sale of previous home and the purchase of our present home were conducted by Russ in a professional and efficient manner that far, surpassed our expectations. Russ’ suggestion on enhancing the desirable aspects of our previous home were very valuable and contributed greatly to the sale at our desired price. Russ spent many hours showing us houses that were similar to what we said were the features and location that we desired. In fact, he showed us a house that did not conform to our stated desires and we purchased that home immediately after first viewing it! A very positive experience in both instances. 

A&L Phillis

Wendy gave 100%. She looked over the houses we suggest and gave us her views, so we would not waste our time, met us ½ way to sign papers so we would not have to travel to your office, came to our house in Aldergrove to make sure our papers were all in order. We would recommend her highly.

Mark, Raylene, Patrick and Devin

We wanted to express our appreciation for your services in helping us find and purchase our new home in Chilliwack . The tight market conditions earlier this summer, in Chilliwack , concerned us that we would be unable to find the home we wanted in our preferred neighbourhood. Your professional approach, knowledge of the market in our desired areas, and calming demeanor was much appreciated. With your professional approach, we were able to find and purchase a wonderful home that exceeded our expectations. We would also like to thank Kellee, for all her help with the "Out of Province" purchase and organizing the paperwork for the Notary and our Edmonton lawyers. I must say "We have found Chilliwack to be a wonderful community that far exceeds our original expectations." Anyone who chooses to relocate to Chilliwack is in for a very pleasant surprise. Russ, on behalf of our family, thank you again for a job well done. Based on our experience, we would not hesitate to recommend your services. Best regards, The O'Briens

Ralph & Fran Blaine

Honesty and never ending patience by both Russ and Jim. They found us the right home at the right price and at the right time. Thank you Russ!

Ron & Lin Pare

We were pleased with the professional manner in which Russ & his team conducted themselves. We were kept in the loop at all times and were made aware of many possible scenarios that could happen when selling. We would not hesitate to recommend Russ to our friends here in Chilliwack , in fact we already told a number of them just how pleased we have been with the service. Russ was most pleasant to work with.

Mike & Tammy Pfeifer

We received excellent service and got a great deal on the home we purchased. We also received a great price on the home we sold. We will definitely be coming back when we need to buy & sell again.

E. Don Smith

When we moved here, we had no one to contact. So we got a newspaper and found Russ Bailie's ad, so we called him. It was the best move we did to find the home we wanted in Chilliwack . The personal touch and professional attention that Russ gave to us was very important. He didn't push us, his recommendations were really good. He took us to places all over Chilliwack , then let us decide what place we wanted. It was a real pleasing experience with a professional REALTOR. I have since recommended Re/Max Nyda Realty to several people, especially Russ Bailie.

K & C Dunphy

We appreciated the effort that both Russ & Jim put into the sale of our home. The countless showings and wonderful advertising, the office staff was always helpful, friendly and full of encouragement and advice. Yes, we would definitely use Russ & Jim again.

Corinne Barber

Russ, we appreciate your experience and the fact that you do a high volume. Your success makes us feel secure that you are in a position to give us good advice. We feel you have our best interests at heart and are not "hungry" for a listing.

Ron and Cindy Alderson

We liked Janette's fast responses to our first phone call.  From there on in she replied quickly by phone, text or email. She made time for us at our convience and answered ALL  questions. Plus she understood our anxieties and did not brush them off.


Janette should win and award!  She kept us calm (best she could).  Awesome Job Janette. Thank you!

Marilee Gordon

Wendy was honest, helpful and did excellent research of the properties that I could afford after the sale of our home.  Over all the best service since I hadn't had to do this for 20 years.  There is nothing better she would have done.
