TESTIMONIALS

“We have had four real estate transactions in Whistler, and Jeff was the master of each of them. He and Lynne successfully managed these transactions with efficiency, thoughtfulness, professionalism and friendly care.  Whether we were in Whistler, Vancouver, or out of the country, Jeff and Lynne stayed in touch with us and looked after our real estate needs.  They make a terrific team – one that you will appreciate working with when it comes time to buy or sell.”
– Doug and Vicki

“A week before leaving for a month’s vacation on the other side of the world, I engaged Jeff to sell my Whistler Creekside chalet.  This was my second sales experience with Jeff, and he and his associate Lynne again immediately impressed with their consummate professionalism: a photographer was engaged to take photos, and all relevant documents were obtained, reviewed and discussed.  I requested a “soft launch” to test the market, allowing a realtor open, but no sign, and no access to a tenant occupied suite, or to my garage.  I left the country, knowing my property would come on the market in good hands.
My house sold immediately, with 2 offers, at the price I wanted, and Team Jeff and Lynne then efficiently navigated the waters of long distance offer and counter offer across many time zones.
To top it off, while I was still out of the country, Jeff and Lynne organized the purchase of a new home for me.  As I could not visit the chosen property myself, Jeff provided a personally narrated video, organized an inspection, and negotiated the successful purchase.  I am happily established in my new home.  I have 100% confidence in the success you will also experience with the friendly, positive, professional Hume approach to real estate.”

“We have known Jeff and Lynne for 7 years and they have now helped us purchase two homes and sell one in Whistler.  We feel like Jeff and Lynne really made an effort to get to know us, our needs and preferences.  They have consistently cared more about helping us make good family decisions than just making a sale.
We now find ourselves the owners of our ultimate Whistler dream home after they helped make an almost impossible deal come to fruition.  Thank you Jeff and Lynne for your professionalism, personal care, phone calls at 10:30 pm, and your amazing skills and knowledge about the Whistler market.  We owe you so much and hope our friendship will continue as we enjoy growing our family and lives in Whistler.”
– Omar and Anna

“Since first meeting my husband, Dave, we knew that one day we wanted a ski cabin of our own.  When the time came and we were able to purchase a second home, finding the perfect realtor was actually easy.  Having grown up ski racing in Whistler, I knew that the Hume family were an honest, fun, loving family with great work ethic and strong values that we could relate to. Working with Jeff, was a no brainer!
Jeff’s insight to the market and wealth of knowledge of Whistler homes in general, helped guide us, as we looked at every price tier for almost a year.  Jeff was both patient and proactive with keeping us front and centre with listings that matched what we were envisioning. We had also literally just had our second son when we started to view homes.  There is no question that this would have been extremely tricky and probably not that fun,  if it had not been for the fabulous Lynne Hume. Lynne would stay in the car with the heat on with our newborn, while Jeff, Dave, myself and our 2 year old son, trudged through all sorts of weather to view homes.
‘Team Hume’ went above and beyond on so many levels to make this a wonderful experience from start to finish.  We are forever grateful to both Jeff and Lynne for being such a huge part of making our dream a reality.  We are now enjoying watching our boys ski and bike right out our front door every weekend.  Our cabin is absolutely perfect for us and already “so full of love” as my son says.  Thanks again!”
A Happy Buyer

“Jeff and Lynne Hume did an outstanding job selling our Whistler condo.  At first, we tried selling it on our own.  This proved to be very frustrating with many lookers but, no real buyers and made us realize that we needed an experienced real estate professional.  Jeff and Lynne are dedicated professionals who made the sale of our condo seem effortless.   We received bids from serious buyers within a day of the property being listed.  The property sold very quickly and over the listing price.  Their knowledge and effort made it happen.  Many thanks to both of them for their dedicated service.”

“I have known Jeff as a ski racing teammate and friend for almost 20 years. When it became time for my partner and I to look for a full time home in Whistler, Jeff and Lynne helped us find the right home in a great location within our budget. Thanks to their expertise in the local real estate market, they provided us with great service throughout our quest to find the perfect home. Over the course of the home search, our tastes and preferences changed numerous times. Jeff was patient during this process and both he and Lynne responded to every request in a timely and professional manner. We ended up finding our dream home when Jeff and Lynne suggested a house which wasn’t on our list. They were able to see an opportunity for us that we wouldn’t have otherwise considered. For that we are truly grateful as we are very happy with our home and enjoy living there thoroughly. They arranged for viewings quickly when we requested them and at times that were convenient for us. We highly recommend Jeff’s services to anyone looking to buy or sell their vacation or rental property in Whistler.”

“I was recommended Jeff Hume from a co-worker when I was looking to buy in Whistler.  I was a first time buyer so had no idea how the process worked.  Jeff was wonderful, he listened to everything I wanted and walked me through everything step by step.  Because of my buying experience, I again turned to Jeff upon selling!  Once again, he made everything seem so easy for me!!!
Overall Jeff Hume made both the Buying and Selling of my home a seamless, smooth experience!
Thank you Jeff!!!”
– Heather Fillman

“Working with Jeff and Lynne to find our Whistler vacation home was fantastic!  As foreign buyers, we really appreciated how seamless and easy they made our experience.  Jeff was extremely proactive in finding us a home that met our needs, his communication throughout the process was excellent and he and Lynne worked as a team to help facilitate all aspects of the transaction that require someone on the ground in Whistler.  We have worked with real estate agents to buy and sell a number of homes over the years, and I can easily say that Jeff and Lynne are the best!”

“Now that the chaos of closing, the paperwork and moving is all over, I would like to thank you for your services in regard to selling our residence in Alpine Meadows.  Although we had some challenges along the way, I must say I am very, very satisfied with the end result.  I now understand and respect the principles and strategy that you initially proposed much better, and although I had my own ideas at the beginning, it was coming back to your strategy and sticking with it that eventually achieved success.
I truly appreciated your dedication and hard work throughout the process, and particularly how you were able to engage the buyer to cooperate and get us to closing so very quickly considering the time constraints I was under.  Thank you also for the very helpful tips and recommendations of a cleaner and Whistler Alltime Movers who did such a great job packing and moving.
Because it was difficult for me to communicate with you during normal working hours, I very much appreciated your uncomplaining and enthusiastic availability and prompt replies after hours and on weekends.  Having had to work all hours and many weekends for most of my own life, I realize how much this can potentially affect one’s family life.  Thanks should also go to your wife for being supportive and accepting this inevitable reality.
Again thanks so very much, and wishing you ongoing success,”
– Kurt Samer

“Jeff and Lynne (and the rest of their family) are close friends of our, and they are also extremely capable and amazing marketers of properties in Whistler.  Less than 2 weeks ago we started discussing the option of buying the unit above us in the complex.  Not only did they secure that unit for us quite a bit below asking price, but they also had an above-ask offer for us on our existing unit…before the unit was even posted online.  All this with minimal subjects at both ends.  We hope they may be of assistance to you, as they have been to us and to several of our other friends.  They come highly recommended.”
Mark and Kathy Stahr

“Jeff and Lynne demonstrated extreme patience with our family as we took our time to evaluate the market and repeatedly changed our minds about what we were looking for in our Whistler home purchase. They provided valuable market insight and made us feel comfortable and fully informed when we ultimately made our decision.  Their guidance went beyond the sale transaction as they participated in site meetings when we were unable to physically be in Whistler and they shared valuable local contacts for the renovation we decided to complete on our new home.  We will certainly use this team again and fully recommend them to anyone considering a Whistler purchase.”
– Tara and Sveto Zvijerac

“When my wife , Kerri, and I decided to sell our Whistler chalet we chose Jeff Hume and his assistant Lynne as the team to represent our investment. The Hume’s are long time family friends, but that is not why we chose them. Over the last couple of years Jeff had asked for my assistance in helping his clients on real-estate decisions from a construction related opinion, sometimes leading my company into renovation contracts, but that is not why we chose them.  We chose Jeff because after being involved with some of his previous clients it was very clear to see the dedication that he puts forward to each and every client. He is engaged with his fellow colleagues, he is engaged with his client list and more importantly he is engaged with you, the client in front of him at the time.

If you are selling he is continually finding ways to ensure that your property is front and center and it is not forgotten by anyone. We sold our home at a time when the market was considered soft for a solid price and in a time frame that was under 6 months. We were very pleased. If you are buying he will take your ideas and scour the market to help find what you are looking to buy. He looks outside of the box you have painted and throws out different possibilities for you to ponder over.  The Hume team has just done this with us as we are now embarking on a development project in Cheakamus Crossing. He brought the idea to me after seeing the potential of this property. Although not technically, I now consider Jeff and Lynne as partners in this project as they will be handling the marketing and sales. We are just in the early stages and they have already hit the ground running, working on branding and marketing concepts.
I am excited about this project and excited to have Jeff, Lynne and the rest of their behind the scene team on board as we embark on “THE COULOIR AT CHEAKAMUS CROSSING”.”

“We were introduced to Jeff through our niece, who had known Jeff for some time. We knew what we wanted, the price we wanted to pay and the location in Whistler and let Jeff know that. Jeff listened well. He showed us some listings in the area we thought we wanted to be in. Jeff then showed us an area we had never considered. On the first day looking with Jeff we found the perfect place, which we now own. Jeff understood better than we did, what we wanted. Jeff’s long history with Whistler, hard work and responsiveness, along with that of his very capable Assistant Lynne, allowed our complicated purchase to succeed. He was there from beginning to end. We would highly recommend Jeff Hume.”
– Tom and Betsy Docking

“We really enjoyed working with you.  Your responsiveness to any phone call or enquiry was immediate and you provided professional support and references that made the entire purchasing and closing process seamless.  Thank you!  We are looking at purchasing another single family home in Whistler so if you hear of a good opportunity, please let us know.”
– K & S

“Julie and I are very happy with the sale of our Whistler house, 2773 Coyote Place.  Jeff and Lynne fully understood the very special location and advantages of Coyote Place and how when packaged with a superbly built RDC Fine Homes house, it was a very special environment in which to live.  Jeff and Lynne worked as a team on the marketing strategy to present 2773 in the most attractive way.  This  included refinishing outside and inside, sprucing up the landscaping and assuring all technical aspects of the house were in good working order.  In addition, a video was created with Bob Deeks, the builder, showcasing the special qualities of the house and a picture show was available on the internet.
Working with Jeff and Lynne was very harmonious and included ongoing advice on the Whistler real estate market and the pricing strategy most likely to attract serious buyers.  The house received a solid offer in September, some 75 days after being on the market which was very reassuring.  It has been a rewarding and happy experience working with Jeff and Lynne, who are both quietly very professional in their approach to real estate sales.”
– Bill and Julie Deeks

“Huge thanks for all your hard work, help and guidance in buying my first home! Jeff and Lynne were extremely knowledgeable, attentive and professional which allowed me to find a place within my budget and at a perfect location. Couldn’t have done it without you guys!!”
– Anastasia Skryabina

“After leasing a home in Whistler for the last five years, we decided to take the big step in buying our dream house in Whistler in the spring of this year. We looked to Jeff Hume to make that dream a reality – no small feat considering our numerous demands – a resort-like home, with a big lodge feel, a good balance of wood and logs, lots of windows and of course ample room to allow our family and friends to enjoy the mountains.

With only a little spare time to look at all the different homes and properties, Jeff, supported in a big part by Lynne, ensured each of our visits to Whistler was an effective and efficient exercise. With every visit and each showing, the Jeff and Lynne Team were professional, knowledgeable about each neighborhood, well organized and prepared and most importantly were respectful and patient as we assessed each listing. They were always available, very responsive and confident and assertive in our final negotiations. In the end after all the viewings, which were all worthwhile, we purchased one of the very first homes we visited which has now become our dream home.

If you want to find your dream home in Whistler or maybe just a weekend get-away place, we strongly recommend the services of Jeff and Lynne Hume – they are an effective and efficient team and will make your dream a reality.”
– Richard and Jacquie

“Jeff – you blew us away. We were amazed at how hard you and your partner Lynne worked to ensure we saw so many great chalets to choose from in Whistler. We love our new cabin there, and if wasn’t for you pushing so hard to show us the 18 places (ya I know over kill on our part) but seeing them all gave us confidence to put an offer in that next day. We’re thrilled and already enjoying our log chalet with friends every weekend. I’m a raving fan.”
– Cameron Herold

“We hired Jeff and Lynne to help us buy our Whistler condo. They are a great team who are easy to communicate with and have the local knowledge we were seeking. We would happily use them again!”
– Ross and Barb

“Becoming disillusioned with under-performing investments and Mutual Funds, we decided to invest in real estate. Whistler was our first and only choice for all the obvious reasons. We felt fortunate in having Jeff working hard on our behalf. Being raised in Whistler, Jeff had lots of valuable insight into the community and the surrounding locales which we appreciated. The following economic downturn has had little effect on our Whistler investments and in our case there is a steady rental income. We have employed Jeff’s services on numerous occasions and would not hesitate to recommend him.”
– Ray Anthony

“We had a fabulous, hard working / caring realtor that did an AMAZING job. The nice thing is that he lives up there and works with his Mom so they are super hands on!! If you are thinking about selling, I would highly recommend Jeff.”
– Hennie

“Our realtor, Jeff Hume went above and beyond the call of duty in his quest to sell our condo in Whistler. We live in Ontario and Alberta and therefore were unable to properly prepare the property for listing. Jeff assisted us by arranging to have the condo painted, cleaned and staged for the market. Jeff kept us informed throughout the process. Jeff was always courteous and respectful in his interactions with us. We are delighted to report that as a result of Jeff’s diligence our property successfully sold.”
– Deb and Jo

“I can’t thank Jeff and Lynne enough for recommending me to a great Realtor in Port Moody. Within 24 hours of talking to Jeff he had me connected to a fantastic team in our area. We were out searching for a place within a couple of days and found what we were looking for. We move in just over a month! Thanks again.”
– Karen and Kelly

“I just wanted to pass on big thanks for all your help in working to get me into a place that had the location I was looking for and at a price that fit my budget. Thank you again for all of your hard work and advice.”
– Christine

“I was referred to Jeff about 5 years ago when I first came to Whistler and started looking at properties. He very quickly gained my confidence not only because of all the time and effort he put in to satisfy our demands but more in how he and Lynne always put our interests first. They were very patient with us throughout the whole process and not only did they find us a great home for the family but they also found  two more investment properties that I have purchased and done very well with so far.

After buying three properties with Jeff and Lynne, we just sold our first and I was again very impressed with their perserverance, competence and professionalism thoughout the whole process. I can very confidently reccommend Jeff and Lynne, whether you are looking for your dream home, cottage getaway or or an investment property. You will
not be disappointed!”
– Joel and Amanda

I have to admit, we are not the easiest clients … We didn’t know exactly what we wanted but we definitely knew what we didn’t want when we saw it. Lynne and Jeff were extremely patient and positive throughout our 2 plus years of searching! They always answered my millions of questions and always got further information for me when I asked them to do some digging, not to mention all of the time they spent showing us place after place in all kinds of weather! We finally found “the one” we were meant to buy and even then, Jeff fought hard for us to make the deal happen – thank you Jeff!

It doesn’t stop there … Lynne and Jeff were super helpful with recommending names, dealing with inspectors and contractors for us when we couldn’t come up from the city, and helping us with various house insurance and lawyer questions.
Lynne and Jeff went above and beyond our expectations, even more so after the deal was done, and we greatly appreciate that – thank you both!
