Testimonials - John DiBernardo

When researching real estate agents, we found that John had the most number of listings in the South Okanagan for homes in our price range. That suggested to us that John had a wealth of experience in the type of home we were looking to buy. We interviewed John on our first visit to his office, and found his answers to be straightforward and honest. Questions we had about the real estate process he answered very clearly. He obviously loves his work, and despite having lots of listings, had lots of time for us too. We were upfront in saying what we were not looking for in an agent: We did not want someone who would try to give us a hard sell. We were not looking for someone who would   sell us on the "fluff". We wanted to know about the underlying structure, not the superficial features, of a house. John certainly was responsive to those qualifications: he was patient, laid-back, and courteous on our visits, but when we did ask questions, he was ready with good practical answers. Anything he didn't know off-hand he was scrupulous about finding out and contacting us with the answers. With his experience in the lumber industry and working with tradespeople, he had a lot of good solid information about houses.  He was very honest with us about houses he thought were substandard or would be problems down the road. We appreciated his candor. We found John friendly, easy going, ethical, knowledgeable, and respectful of both his clients and the homes he visits. His office assistant Wanda, was just as friendly and helpful. We heartily recommend John as a real estate agent. -Patrick and Penelope


John, we wanted to take the opportunity to thank you again for the outstanding service you provided for us when purchasing our new home.  How very fortunate for us that you were in the office the day we went looking for a realtor.  It was apparent from the start that you were a very knowledgeable real estate professional.  As we were re-locating from another city, we came to you with only a short time to search for and purchase our new home.  As our existing home had already been sold, time was certainly of the essence.  You have remarkable ability in making your clients feel as though their needs are your number one priority.  We found you were always prompt, well prepared and extremely organized.  Your quick response to arranging showings, returning our telephone calls and e-mails was always very much appreciated.  The follow up you initiated with our out of town selling agent shows your willingness to go above and beyond.  Your friendly demeanor, good sense of humour and most importantly your honesty made it a pleasure doing business with you.  We have and will continue to recommend you to our friends. -Ernie & Stacey – Penticton, BC

Dear John, thank you for a pleasant, comfortable experience when I bought my new home in Penticton. You were very informative and found answers to all my questions.  I never felt rushed, and although I bought in a hurry, I love my little house now that the renovations are done.  You helped me by offering advice re; what had to be done before and offer was made and recommended a general contractor who was perfect for me.  Thank you again and please know that I recommend you whenever the chance presents itself. -Sharon Storey – Penticton


“Walking you Home, One Step at a Time….” Is definitely an honest motto to describe John.  We have had a few real estate deals with John DiBernardo, and both times he has given us so much support and advice.  John is attentive, caring, professional, and of course we must add, his awesome sense of humor.  Whenever we hear someone talking about buying or selling, we highly recommend John. Thank you John and Wanda for all the time you gave of yourselves to help us find our retirement home. -Larry and Sandra
