Consulting a REALTOR®
REALTORS® are members of The Canadian Real Estate Association who subscribe to a Code of Ethics and Standards of Business Practice. Members of the Victoria Real Estate Board are members of both the British Columbia and Canadian Real Estate Associations.The following is a list of services you can expect to receive from a REALTOR® when you buy a home:
- A REALTOR® will fully explain the details of your working relationship (called "agency") so that you are clear as to when a REALTOR® is working for you or for the seller.
- A REALTOR® has access to hundreds of current listings of homes for sale because of a co- operative system called the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®).
- A REALTOR® can provide you with a customized list of homes that best meet your needs -- size, style, features, location, proximity to schools, shopping, etc. - and then make arrangements for you to view those homes that appeal to you the most.
- A REALTOR® will help you determine how big a home you can afford. REALTORs® are familiar with the local lending market and can offer helpful advice.
- A REALTOR® has no emotional ties to any type or style of home and can be objective in pointing out the merits of one home over another.
- A REALTOR® will have information on zoning changes, taxes, utility costs and school and recreation services that could affect your decision to buy a home in a specific area.
- A REALTOR® will assist you in negotiating the terms of your purchase, which can be a nerve- wracking process for someone who is not experienced in negotiating.
- A REALTOR® will advise you of the legal process required in obtaining title and taking possession of your property; the costs associated with buying a home such as insurance, mortgage registration and legal fees will be explained in detail.

Why working with a REALTOR® makes sense
When you work with a REALTOR® you will likely get a better price for your home than if you try to sell it yourself. Apart from the financial benefits, however, there is an extra measure of comfort and security that comes from having a REALTOR® on your side. Remember that REALTORS® are governed by a code of ethics and standards of business practice. They have also been trained and licensed under the provincial Real Estate Services Act to assist in transactions involving real property. When it comes to buying or selling property, using a REALTOR® just makes sense.

Craig provided exceptional service in selling my home. His caring, engaging, informative, hard working attributes made for a wonderful experience. I felt lucky to have experienced his service.
We were so nervous to purchase a home, especially on short notice and as first time home buyers. It was such a blessing to work with Craig! He answered all of our questions and gave us the information we needed to make our decisions, and then he made the purchase process seamless and a breeze.
Joannas and Ed Balauag
We were astounded by the Craig's knowledge and level of service. He is simply the best real estate agent we have ever had. We recommended him to a friend, who had a similar experience.
Gerrit & Tsoi Bonnema
My wife and I feel blessed to have found such an honest, kind, knowledgeable and EFFECTIVE realtor. Craig is amazing and we will always only use and/or endorse him for anyone who asks.
Thank you Craig,
The well mannered realtor who answers all phone calls and texts. Recommended by friends, Craig turned out to be the best realtor I've ever dealt with.
Craig provides outstanding service and is very detailed oriented. He spent hours answering my questions and providing objective data regarding recent and past condo sales. I would recommend Craig Toker to everyone I know. He's a true professional and a genuinely nice guy. I realize it's never an easy process to sell your home, all the emotions, but I think you'd be hard-pressed to find a better Realtor. Great job Craig!
Thank you again,
Michael M - Michael Miller
Craig was the best. I interviewed 5 different realtors when I had my Mom's place for sale, and I was impressed with his depth of knowledge as well as his personal integrity and strong work ethic. He offered us some optional budget-friendly ideas for some curb-appeal improvements (he has huge knowledge about renos and improvements), which really worked well, as verified by comments that I heard from prospective buyers during the showings. As well, even while we were doing the suggested improvements, there was never at any point any pressure from Craig to sign a listing agreement. Only when we felt ready to sell, which could have been immediately or else in a few years, did we bring up the topic of getting him to list the house. Such professionalism and courtesy as Craig's must be experienced to be fully appreciated. And the staging work he did (with his helper) was so attractive that I'm convinced that this sealed the deal. Some other Realtors I interviewed had suggested that I sell the house "as-is" to a builder for a much lower price. After Craig's suggestions, the property sold for much higher, beating everyone's expectations (except for Craig, who had complete faith in our project). In short, we spent $20,000 on the optional curb-appeal improvements that Craig suggested. We then sold the house for a price that was an extra $260,000 higher than what any of the other realtors could come up with and having spent only $20,000. An excellent return on our investment, thanks to Craig. If you need help with selling a fixer-upper like this, or if your house is completely ready to be sold, in both cases I think Craig is simply the best.
Craig has the expertise and professionalism you'd expect from a successful veteran agent, but also the attentiveness, enthusiasm and dedication you'd expect of a new agent trying to impress!
We've used realtors in the past. All of which we thought was great. Then we met Craig. The bar has jumped upward. The previous agents were just going through the motions in hindsight. Other realtors would push you toward a purchase without understanding what you want or need. Craig sat back and let us do our homework, let us see what our budget could do. Without trying to up-sell us. It wasn't until we were ready to pull the trigger that he really started to shine. He took the sale on as if he was buying the place for himself. Answering calls at all hours 7 days a week, call us with questions, dealing with our odd work hours. Pulling permits and blueprints on the properties out of his own pocket before being asked about them, making sure everything was on the up and up, talking with contractors, setting up everything from inspectors to our bank to make sure everything fell into place exactly in the time it was supposed to be. Even after conditions were removed he was still in contact letting us know he was working on getting the property ready for us. Our past realtors which I had thought were doing a good job were really only doing the offer and sales paperwork and frequently pushed us to properties that were outside our budget. Then once the paperwork was completed disappeared. leaving a basket of fruit on the counter of our new home. I could care less about the fruit basket now. Realizing it was a hollow thank you for handing over a bunch of my money. I'll take a realtor that actually investigates the home's past and treats the property as his own any day. Can't thank or recommend him enough

We are so fortunate to have Craig Toker as our realtor. His knowledge and expertise led us to a successful purchase. He treated us like family every step of the process. We would recommend Craig to anyone who is looking for a great experience with a realtor.

TESTIMONIAL October 12, 2017
Craig Toker at Royal LePage Coast Capital Realty guided us through the preparation and resulting sale of the family property and home with top notch professionalism. The experience was excellent from start to finish. Craig's competency shined through as he listened carefully, was easy to talk to, gave sound advice, fun to work with and always came back with a quick and accurate response to our questions.
Craig always answered our phone calls, stopped by frequently and made us feel like he was never in a hurry. He always made us feel like we were most important.
Craig personally attended to all details, following everything tightly from start to finish. He has assembled an incredible team that works cohesively with him on the fine details such as floor plan, painting, staging, drone aerial, 3D video, brochure and "For Sale" sign. They all did an exceptional job, going above and beyond our expectations.
This truly was an incredible and fun experience.
"Thank you", Craig.
You are an awesome person that cares.
TESTIMONIAL August 12, 2017We were absolutely delighted in the performance of Craig Toker and his team for the sale of our townhouse. Craig demonstrated professionalism in his approach to assisting us in the property valuation and establishing a timeline for the sale of the property. His recommendation of staging and the performance of his stager were major factors in ensuring our sale at essentially asking price, in less than one week. Through his extensive and experienced team, Craig went above and beyond in his preparation of a property brochure, photo gallery, 360 walk-through and a drone-created video showing the area and external views of the townhouse complex. He conducted a two day, well organized Open House that was a huge success and resulted in the quick sale of the property.
We would highly recommend Craig as a professional and personable realtor who is intimately familiar with the greater Victoria area.

Wow! Amazing! Professional! Dedicated! Hard-Working! Detail-Oriented, Very High Standards! Just a few words to describe what you did for us and yourself for the very quick sale of Constance.

To Craig and The Dream Team,
I want to thank you so much for all of your passion and energy in selling my condo. You and all of the members of your team have been such professionals and such a pleasure in guiding me through this otherwise stressful process. You and your team always put me at ease, gave solid advice and always made me feel you wanted the best outcome for me. You really made it easy for me and would not hesitate in recommending you to everyone I know.
Thank you so much and wishing you and your Dream Team all the best success in the future.
TESTIMONIAL: February 19, 2017
Craig Toker is a great guy! It is difficult to put into words the great lengths that Craig went for us.
He is an honest, caring, smart, creative, ambitious guy that puts his all into his work. His professionalism and work ethic are incredible. Furthermore his team is amazing as well. You can blatantly tell that he is very picky with the people he keeps on his team and because of this he has established an incredibly solid group of professionals.
Craig's background in construction really helped us feel good about the purchase of our new home. He worked so hard for us and we always felt that we had a strong advocate in our corner. We never felt like Craig was working for the commission, he honestly wanted to make sure we were happy and the house was going to be suitable for our family.
Without a second thought we would and will recommend anyone to Craig Toker and his team.
A great realtor is hard to find but trust me look no further you have all of that and more that in Craig.
TESTIMONIAL: November 15, 2016
From the first moment we decided to list our home to sell, Craig was the ONLY Realtor we would consider to take on the task. His vast experience and knowledge in the Victoria, BC real estate market coupled with his team of experts blew away our expectations. The way the marketing was customized specifically for our listing, the professional staging, the time and energy he and his team put into our home before it even went on the market was astounding.
Craig advised us of the current market, what the future of the market could look like and when the perfect time to sell would be. We gladly listened and as a result Craig sold our home in 3 days for $40,000 over our asking price.
There is absolutely no reason why we wouldn't use Craig and his team for our future real estate transactions. From the first meeting you will absolutely leave with the sense that he genuinely cares for his clients and wholeheartedly loves working with real estate. I would (and do), without a doubt, refer Craig Toker to anyone I know.
TESTIMONIAL: January 21, 2016
As we come to the wrap-up of this professional / client association, I wish to express my sincerest gratitude and admiration for your key part in facilitating the sale of my property. From the first -- whether to do with moving logistics, listing and price matters and timing, or presentation concerns -- you've been unfailing in offering your considered advice and your hands-on, experienced-based, friendly help. In short, you helped transform a process that ,to me initially seemed daunting in its complex totality, into a series of naturally moving steps that were often actually enjoyable.
May many others -- vendors (like myself in this case) or buyers -- be so fortunate as to be represented by you in their future real estate dealings.
All Good Wishes,
TESTIMONIAL: January 21, 2016
My ex-wife and I were desperate to sell our house and didn't expect to get a great price for it. You took on the listing and went well above and beyond the call of duty in making it happen. In addition to advertising and showing the house aggressively, you gave us great advise and even provided assistance in fixing up the appearance of our house for sale! During the whole process, I was consistently impressed with every aspect of your services; you really know your stuff, were pleasant to deal with and always were ready to answer questions or address issues when they came up. In the end, after pricing the house quite ambitiously, you sold it quickly for 99% of asking price!
You have a rare combination of competence, knowledge, dedication and effort, and I would not hesitate to list with you again or strongly recommend you to others.
TESTIMONIAL: April 4, 2016
Two years after my husband passed away I was debating on downsizing, but only debating, and certainly didn't want to feel any pressure to make a decision. I was casually looking at listings at the Mayfair Mall Royal LePage Kiosk and struck up a conversation with Craig where he confirmed my feeling that this could take weeks or even months. But with Craig's professional support and guidance I knew this was the direction I was going to go. I have since sold my home and purchased a condo with Craig. He offered his support ,not only with my sale and purchase, but with all of the other tasks that arose throughout the process. I felt like I had someone in my court that I could count on and who would give me solid and honest advise. It meant a lot to me and I consider Craig now a friend and would most certainly recommend him to anyone considering buying or selling their home.
TESTIMONIAL:April 6, 2016
Craig helped us purchase our first home in the Spring of 2016. We were looking for someone who could really guide us through the process as we had absolutely no experience with real estate. Craig took the time to listen to our needs and his professional guidance was invaluable to us. We always felt like Craig had our best interests at heart and he really understood what we wanted and also what we needed in a new home. We ended up with a great first home at a really great price.

This is a letter of endorsement for Realtor Craig Toker.
Richard and I have purchased two properties with the guidance and expertise of Craig Toker. Conversely, we have also NOT purchased two properties that we strongly desired because Craig found them either faulty in construction or not to be in good enough locations for resale.
His advise has proven to be sound at all times and we are immensely grateful to him. We nearly walked away from the beach house of our dreams. This was a time when Craig advised us to rethink that decision. Upon his suggestion of yet another visit, we felt, again, the magic of the home and its setting and stayed with the purchase. Now we are excited to renovate and enjoy its beauty.
Craig puts himself in his client's shoes and reacts as if each transaction were his or that of a family member. He builds trust in this manner and in his tremendous work ethic. He literally will work at any time of the day to ensure that a property sale occurs and to his client's best advantage.
We have enjoyed Craig's friendship and professionalism and look forward to our next search whenever we can make that happen again. If we were to purchase another property we would think of no other realty.
TESTIMONIAL: October 31, 2015
Look no further!
If you are searching for a Realtor who will work as hard as it takes to sell your home, look no further.
We chose Craig to list our Fernwood home in the Fall of 2015 after hearing about the extra care and attention he paid to his clients, and his drive to deliver the highest standard of realty service. We were not disappointed. Within days of our first contact, Craig completed a sound market evaluation of our property, created high quality sales materials and implemented a comprehensive marketing plan tailored to sell our unique home. Craig completed this work prior to our chosen list date, generating early interest from his existing clients and other Realtors. Within three days of listing, we saw twelve private showings of our home, and over a hundred people who attended the open house. Craig was on site for all of these potential sales opportunities, where he represented our interests, and cultivated future offers. On our third day of listing, Craig brought us three purchase offers to choose from , which resulted in a complete sale six days later above our asking price! By leveraging the strengths of the current market, Craig generated a high volume of traffic through our home, which created an excitement in potential buyers that kept us in the driver's seat.
Craig's meticulous attention to detail, commitment to his clients, and knowledge of the Victoria Real Estate Market make him an obvious choice. We have already referred friends and family to Craig and will continue to do so without hesitation.
Darren and Brent
TESTIMONIAL: December 8, 2015
There are no perfect Realtors but there are very good Realtors like Craig. We were first time home buyers and we were looking for a Reator that we could trust and we found Craig. He made sure that we were aware of all of the processes of the real estate transaction and he made sure we were aware of every bit of information. He will make sure that you are well-informed before making your buying decision. If I become involved in the real estate market again I have no doubt that I will work with him and I will recommend Craig to everyone who needs a Realtor because Craig is the kind of person that will always treat you like family.
