What clients are saying...

Hi Brenda,

I would be more than happy to write a testimonial for you:
When my husband and I were looking for a place on the Sunshine Coast, we were happy that we had Brenda as our realtor.  She was very accommodating to our schedules and found homes that were not only in our price range but that were suited for us.  This was our first house and Brenda walked us through each step so the process seemed simple and less stressful.  I would recommend Brenda as a realtor to anyone looking to purchase a new home.

Thanks again Brenda,.

To Whom it May Concern,

Brenda has been my realtor for personal transactions, and for corporate transactions since 2008. My wife and I recently purchased a property in Robert’s Creek, which we are thrilled with. The lot is exactly what we were looking for, and was not even listed on the MLS. Brenda remembered this lot being listed a few years earlier, and contacted the sellers directly after speaking with the original listing agent. Negotiations were smooth, as was the closing. You will find that Brenda gives excellent service, and goes above and beyond to make the entire experience as enjoyable as it can be.

A Successful Move from Vancouver

I was so pleased with the service I received from Brenda when I decided to move from Vancouver to the beautiful Sunshine Coast.  Even  though I already had a specific location in mind, she showed me other properties as well in other nearby communities so that I could make a more informed  final choice.  After the decision was made, we were in in daily contact to sort out all the little details that were somewhat confusing to me however Brenda made it all seem so easy.  Every little question I had was answered promptly.   She is a very "down to earth", nice and knowledgeable lady who made the whole "moving" experience so much better for me than I could ever have expected .  I would highly recommend Brenda to handle your next purchase or sale.

Putting You First

I met Brenda when my sister was house hunting. I was out on the Sunshine Coast for a visit and my sister had an appointment with  a realtor, so I tagged along. What a treat! This lady who met us treated my sister like she was something precious. She listened carefully, she repeated what she heard to make sure it was what my sister was saying. The end result was my sister found the house she was looking for and is now happily ensconced in her new home making it truly hers.

During this time, my husband and I had decided that this was the area we wanted to retire to from Alberta. We got in touch with Brenda, and over the course of the next year, she sent us hundreds of listings to look at. She asked hundreds of questions, and made hundreds of comments for us to ponder and turn over and learn from. When we asked questions that she didn’t readily have an answer for, she made sure that she could direct us to the person that did have the answer, or more often than not, she talked to the person that we needed to talk to, got the answer for us, and if we needed more information, would set up the appointment for us to go and talk to whoever we needed to talk to.

From start to finish Brenda was the consummate real estate professional…and hand holder…and psychiatrist! Because she took the time to listen to what we were really saying and because she knew what kind of questions to ask us, we were able to find our own little piece of paradise.

Without her able assistance, and her boundless knowledge of all things real estate, as well as the ins and outs of the banking industry and the expertise she has in that area, we would not have had the quality experience that we did.

Today, I count Brenda Sopel as a friend. Someone who always has time for me, and someone who didn’t just do her job and then walk away. We still keep in touch and I hope we have many more opportunities to expand our friendship.

Leading You Through the Process

As a first time house buyer, I was nervous to say the very least! I'm a 25 year old pest control technician, and I was very keen and interested in getting into the market and had managed to get a modest down payment for a home, but unfortunately had very little knowledge about the world of Real Estate. A friend of mine had recommended that I talk to Brenda Sopel because of her past experience in both banking as well as real estate. Two fields in which I do not know much about! We met and had a brief consultation. I told her what I was looking for and that very day she found me the home that I ended up buying. She amazingly found a home that met all of my specifications AND was in my price range! Throughout the entire purchase of the home, Brenda's help was immeasurable. She set up appointments, kept me informed of all goings-on, was always available when I needed her, and answered all of my questions honestly and respectfully. She was even able to answer a lot of my banking/mortgage related questions. She went above and beyond the typical duties of a realtor which was a HUGE help considering my lack of experience with the entire process. I found Brenda to be incredibly honest, and truly felt like she had my best interests in mind while she was conducting business for me. Thanks for getting me into my dream home!

Professional Service


In the daunting world of real estate, Brenda made our search for a house both pleasant and informative. In addition, her professionalism guided us through all the necessary steps in order for us to complete our purchase. We are grateful for her skills and wisdom in helping us find the perfect home for us, in the price range that we could manage, and one which will accommodate our needs well into the future.

Brenda researched and responded to all questions that we had during the process and there were many! We would highly recommend her to any potential home buyer.

Tough Situations Made Simple

~I've known Brenda casually for a great many years.  We first met when she was working in the Credit Union in Sechelt.  Over the years each time our paths would cross I would always be so taken by the warmth of her greetings and by the fact that she never forgot my name.  At a very difficult time in my life when a potential foreclosure had me frozen like a deer in the headlights, I thought of Brenda and sought her out in her new role as a real estate agent.  From our very first contact the warmth I had always known her for was immediately there along with real understanding and a genuine concern for my position.  I put my full trust in Brenda and she went straight to work making all the necessary contacts and working hard to ensure everyone involved was on the same page and that the property was well marketed to the right buyers.  Brenda never waived in her determination to find me a buyer and her gentle reassurance during the little disappointments kept me hopeful that the right buyer was honestly out there somewhere.  When that right buyer finally did appear and that beautiful SOLD sign went up it was all because of Brenda.  I couldn't have asked for a more caring, understanding or dedicated agent to have made this journey with me.  Brenda took my hand during a difficult time and she never let go and for that I will always, always be grateful.

Limited Dual Agency

August 26, 2013
Brenda Sopel is the dual agent that  has just sold my house within two weeks in a difficult market.
She was highly recommended by both the buyer and seller of a home two doors down that had sold recently.
She has been so helpful and supportive throughout the whole process and couldn't have made it easier. I felt she was very skilled in pricing and helping me understand the market. Brenda also made herself available throughout the process and kept me up to date on the progress. I felt a high level of trust in her abilities and her understanding of my personal needs.
I appreciate that she does financial checks on interested purchasers so no ones time is wasted and diminishes chances off sale falling through.
I feel very grateful to have Brenda facilitating the sale of my house. I would recommend her as enthusiastically as my neighbours did to me.
