Testimonials & Awards
Dearest Andrena, Patrick and I can’t thank you enough for all your kind and gentle guidance through this entire process. You were patient and dedicated for the past few years as we poked around the various neighbourhoods. Your gentle, genuine nature never waivered and there was not one moment where we felt you were not “with us”.
Pat and Alli
If you need a Realtor in the Comox Valley, I would highly recommend Carla and her team. You couldn't ask for more professional service or nicer people to deal with. Audrey
Nicole, thank you so much for all you’ve done in helping us find & buy our new home. We really appreciated your honesty & all the little extra things you did to help us out along the way. We feel fortunate that we got linked up with you as our Realtor.

Amy, Larry and Chica
I thought, well these look like an interesting group of ladies, so I gave them a phone call and I'm glad I did. I sold my Comox home last year with Carla's help and it was an excellent experience. Carla's very professional, she's intuitive, she's approachable, she's available which is very important, and she's also fun. I found her very excellent to work with and I enjoyed it. The market did change dramatically at some point there and Carla was intuitive enough to make changes as we followed the market changes and fluctuations. From that perspective it was really important because markets don't stay stagnant and neither does Carla.
My husband and I have been working with Nicole to find an investment property. We are a couple of years away but Nicole still takes the time to answer all our questions. She is very knowledgeable in the rental market and we can’t wait to reach our goals with her help.

Andrena, we are so grateful for all of your help on our house hunt! You have been so patient, kind and understanding with us throughout this long hunt. Thanks for everything!
Lisa, Peter and Benjamin
We bought our first house with Carla and we are in the process of also selling our first house with Carla and buying our second. The experience has been super positive she was so helpful all the way through answered all of our questions and as we've been fixing up our little fixer-upper she's answered questions about what we should do to get our money back and what we should put money into and what we should be thinking about for potentially selling our first home.
Simon and Charlotte
Nicole helped us find the perfect home in Comox a few months ago. She is fantastic. Always professional and helpful, fun, and positive. I really trust that she had our best interests in mind through the whole process. We are so pleased with the work she did for us and would whole heartedly recommend her as a realtor to anyone. She was pure gold, and her incredible added value is that she is so knowledgeable about the whole industry, having worked in mortgages as well, and could give us sound advice before I even had to ask. She worked hard for us, with a smile on her face. We are big fans.
Andrena, you have demonstrated initiative and professionalism in using various tools made available to you, like the short video and the well-prepared glossy pamphlet enhancing the appeal of our home, the brilliant idea of working as a team with two other realtors with complimentary skills. Two years ago we listed our home with Royal Lepage, specifically with you Andrena Koch-Schulte, and having made the decision to sell our present home, it was without hesitation we chose you again, your leadership, dedication, ethical values and business acumen made it easy for us to reach out to you. Thank you Andrena, we would have no hesitation in recommending you to family, friends or anyone for that matter. Thank you again.
Robert, Holly and Gail
Nicole helped us find the perfect house in Cumberland. She is intelligent, well informed, conscientious, and considerate. She is a very good communicator, with excellent people skills. Her sense of humour and direct approach made the whole house buying process comfortable for us. I would highly recommend Nicole as a realtor.
J. & R. Udell
Dear Andrena, we are both so grateful for all your hard work, your professional manner, attention to detail and superb negotiating skills! We will miss you.
Nigel and Julie
We all have busy lives, lots of stuff going on and to know that there's a whole team behind Carla, that they work so well together, that they've got each other's backs. Seamless everything went seamless.
Jan and Chris
My husband and I worked with Nicole when we needed to find a home in Courtenay but were living in Ontario. She went above and beyond our expectations by giving us video tours of potential houses and planning skype meetings to keep us informed. We couldn’t be happier with the house she found for us! Definitely recommend! Thanks for all your hard work Nicole!
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed working with you in my search for a rental property in Courtenay. I am very happy with my purchase and credit you for educating me on all the options in terms of properties and the rental situation which made me comfortable with my ultimate purchase choice. You are very knowledgeable and helped me immensely. I also appreciated how you accommodated my time and were always there to meet me and actually went way beyond my expectations by doing a walk through for me on closing. Being an out of town buyer could have been challenging but not with you. Thank you again for everything you did for me. I certainly will recommend you to all future buyers.
We called up and Andrena asked if we could meet with her. The very first house she showed us was the house we ended up buying so it was a great result.
Nicole was the best thing about our experience buying our new home in Comox. Well, OK the home was the best, but we probably wouldn't have even found it without the patience and commitment of Nicole and her obvious commitment to not "selling us a house", but rather "helping us find our new home". She is a very nice person to work with, she knows the whole valley extremely well and she has a unique approach that blends getting you immersed in the excitement of finding a new home with the experience and expertise of the objective and knowledgeable guide to the process. Nicole took the time to really get to know us, to understand where we were coming from and what we were looking for in our new home and she was very patient ( oh yes, very patient) while we tried on many homes in the area. When we found the home we were looking for, she actively engaged and guided us through the purchasing process; she was available whenever we needed to call her, if only for re-assurance that we were making a good decision and she provided excellent advice in our negotiations. Finally, she remained committed to our relationship and gave us much help and support during the post-purchase part of the experience, which was amazing and so appreciated. We consider Nicole one of our first new friends in the Valley and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is looking for the best in real estate care and support.
