We have known Alisa for over 13 years and working with her is always a pleasure! She is very personable and through both our buying and selling transactions she brings the utmost of professionalism and guidance. She gets to genuinely know her clients to understand their needs and she returns texts and calls promptly. Alisa goes above and beyond and takes the pressure off her clients during a stressful time. I highly recommend Alisa and look forward to working with her in the future!

Alisa was very helpful to my partner, Kate, and me in our search for our first home in Victoria. Responsive, quickly available to arrange viewings (which is much needed in this market), forthright, and with her buyers’ best interests at heart. Alisa made it possible to secure our dream home and worked very well with the listing agent in ironing out issues relating to the offer and conditions so that everything went smoothly!

I really appreciate Alisa for the work she did in selling my home. She was great. She moved furniture, tidied up and gave me tips on how to prepare it for sale. She made many trips to the house to turn on lights and turn up the heat so it would be nice and cozy when people came to see it. She was always quick to answer all my calls or emails. Alisa helped me through the entire process and got me an incredible price. She is so thoughtful and knowledgeable. I will be working with her again and referring my friends.

I highly recommend Alisa Gains as a realtor. Her expertise and attention to detail helped our home sell in three days, well above asking price. She was professional and a pleasure to work with. We felt confident we were in good hands throughout the process and she went above and beyond to ensure the sale went smoothly. She is an excellent communicator and was always promp to reply to our texts and phone calls, which we appreciated as the process of selling your home can be stressful. After our sale she helped us find our dream home for a great price. She is exceptional at what she does and I cannot say enough about how positive she made this experience for us. Thank you Alisa!

After 10 years I finally decided to sell my family home. It was a sentimental house and it was a difficult choice to make. Alisa was extremely professional during the entire process while still acknowledging the connection the house had to me. When it came to determining a listing price it did take me a fairly long time to decide. Alisa provided me with a great deal of information to help guide me to the appropriate range. At the end I wanted to list it a bit higher than the research suggested. Alisa never tried to strong arm me on a lower, more attractive price for a realtor but instead talked out the process with me until I came to my decision. We listed the house and within the first 24 hours had an offer that eventually resulted in selling the home at list price! I was very pleased to have the house sell as quickly as it did and the best part was that my amazing tenants were able to stay for the remainder of their lease. Most people like me don’t sell a house everyday so having Alisa take care of pretty much everything was amazing particularly since I didn’t actually live in Victoria. She liaised with the tenants and even staged the home brilliantly before we listed it. The tenants were also very please at how quickly it sold as they were able to get back to their life with very little interruption. Thank you very much for your respectful and professional service during the sale of my home Alisa!

Alisa Gains is an amazing realtor. She was thoughtful, kind and considerate when I was purchasing my first home in Victoria. She arranged all the little details, so that I did not have to stress over them. Buying a home can be an overwhelming experience, but with Alisa it was so enjoyable. Her positive attitude helped keep my focus on the best outcome. While we were searching for homes, she would pick me up and drive me around to all the different places, so that I did not have to figure out directions and could focus on the actual listing. While looking at homes, she let me sit and ponder the possibility of moving into the place, or leave as quickly as we came if I was not feeling it. I also wanted a quick possession date, as I was between homes and she got a move in date that was quicker than I originally had thought. Overall, the purchasing of my first home in Victoria was a remarkable experience with Alisa. I have and will recommend her to anyone purchasing or selling their home in Victoria.

I’ve never been represented so wonderfully in real estate as I have been. Thank you for selling my house and thank you for helping me buy one. Alisa Gains was not only the consummate professional, but also made me feel that I was well taken cared of personally. Alisa was patient, made a big effort to find and sift through properties and on top of that made driving around Victoria so much fun. It felt more like sightseeing with a new friend rather than a chore to go looking at houses. She was alway always on time and had done her research before picking me up.

Miriam Waldman

From the beginning Alisa was both professional and friendly in very non-pressured way. I was on a very tight time-frame to buy and sell a condo and she always created time for me, whether she was arranging a photographer to fit my schedule or getting back in a more-than-timely-fashion with answers to my many questions. I especially like her style of “get it done while we are discussing it”. She goes right to the heart of the inquiry and acts right then and there; none of the usual, “I’ll get back to you”.

Alisa sold my condo right away, which is always a pleasure. She sat with me (over cups of coffee and tea) through the negotiations, the offers and counter offers and was there to celebrate when a fair price was settled upon. I felt like I made a new friend!

I would never hesitate to recommend Alisa. One of her greatest assets is that she has years of experience. She really knows real estate. But I also recommend her because she is honest, fair, thorough, creative, has a great sense of humour and will work hard for you.

Mykal & Nicole Cushing

Alisa helped our family through a very difficult and challenging situation. Selling and buying a house can be a very stressful situation and we had many additional road blocks along the way but Alisa was always there to help calm us and bring reassurance. Alisa is extremely efficient and hard working and always had our best interests in mind. Alisa helped us gain top dollar for our house and was able to ensure that we found what our family needed. Alisa’s dedication and professional ensured that our family was taken care of way over and above what anyone could ever ask for. We will always use and highly recommend Alisa Gains for any real estate needs!

Working with Alisa was an absolute dream from start to finish! I couldn’t recommend someone more highly! She guided through the entire process while answering every single one of my questions. She really cares about her clients and took the time to get to know me and what I was looking for. Alisa is the reason I’m now living in my dream home and I can’t thank her enough!

Matt & Lauren Spears

Alisa was excellent!! She was with us every step of the way. She made the whole process fun! She was very professional in every aspect. She responded to all of our questions in a very timely manner. When we look to sell we will definitely be calling her to represent us!

Karoline Mooney

I want to thank you so much Alisa for helping me to find my very first home 🙂 It has been a roller coaster of emotions but with you by my side all my worries got lifted. You are so calm yet confident and super resilient you have put me at ease and tonight you invited me to dinner to sign my final papers! I will always be grateful to you dearest Alisa.

Alisa recently helped my mother and I prepare her house for sale so that she could downsize to a condo. After many years living in the home and then having renters, the house needed much care before we could put it on the market. Alisa came out to the house several times prior to listing and provided us with valuable advice on where best to focus our efforts. Thanks to her guidance, we saved ourselves time and money we would have spent that would not have provided much value or return. During the whole process, Alisa talked us through every step. She was incredibly patient with two people who weren’t real estate savvy; often sending us follow ups and friendly reminders so that we didn’t miss anything. One of our main concerns during this time was undue stress on the tenants as they were in a unique situation. Alisa offered to communicate directly with the tenants to keep them involved and prepare them for showings. She was very understanding and really put them at ease. When it came time to list, we put the house up for a fair price and received an offer above the asking price within 3 days of putting it on the market. After the house sold, Alisa immediately went to work taking my mom out to showings. Thanks to Alisa, my mom has found a beautiful new 2 bedroom condo to call home!
