Jolene listed and sold my home in Parksville in a very short amount of time. I was very impressed with Jolene’s professionalism and attention to detail as she took charge of all aspects of the listing and sale of my home. No realtor in this market can compete with Jolene’s sales and marketing skills. I would definitely work with Jolene again and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

- Chris Evans, French Creek / Parksville BC

With the help of our very knowledgeable realtor Jolene Aarbo, we recently purchased a beautiful home in Parksville. Jolene was always at the other end of the phone when we needed her, she answered our questions and gave us good, sound advice. Our moving day ended up being a disaster but Jolene was there to make it as stress free as possible. If you are looking for the “best ever” realtor Jolene is for you, give her a call, you won’t be sorry!

- Al & Paula, Parksville BC

Over the years we have bought and sold 14 properties and have dealt with many realtors, Jolene Aarbo ranks amongst the top if not the top Realtor we have worked with, Nothing is too much trouble for Jolene she is always going that extra mile for you and is only a phone call or message away. Although it's doubtful that, at our age, we will purchase another property we would call Jolene first, if we did. We count her amongst our friends. Jolene is always a pleasure to deal with and we wish her all the very best for the future.

- Ray & Ann Deller, Parksville BC

Jolene is an amazing realtor. I was living in Vancouver and wanted to move here permanently but didn’t want to travel back and forth too much so, I gave Jolene details of what I wanted and where and she shopped for me. Jolene looked before calling to make sure it was a ‘maybe’. We actually got together here twice and the second trip she found what I wanted in the area I asked for so now I’m 7 years in and have no doubt that choosing Jolene Aarbo was one of the best decisions of my life. Thanks again Jolene
