It was a pleasure to work with Frazer on the sale of my house. My house was difficult to sell due to the steep terrain, yet Frazer never lost his enthusiasm.Always cheerful, Frazer was extremely professional throughout. Calls were returned promptly, he kept me apprised of things, was attentive to details, and had helpful suggestions. I would not hesitate to work with Frazer again, or to recommend him to others.
Frazer guided us through the process of buying a house on Bowen with patience, kindness and around the clock incredible service. We would have been lost without him. A Bowen born, his local knowledge about the craziness of Bowen houses down to building regulations, septics etc that are so Bowen specific made what could have been an overwhelming process stress free. He wrote offers late into the night and we quickly developed a trust and turned to him for his invaluable advice. His amazing service continues after we have bought the house. He made sure everything in the house was perfect for our move in date. He went above and beyond what I expect from a realtor. We turned to him for trade recommendations, tax advice, community ins and out and where to find a ukulele teacher! After a rigorous two year search we found the house of our dreams and Frazer was by our side every step of the way and I would like to say we now consider him a friend.
Frazer is a consummate professional. During my time working through two deals with him, he was extremely attentive, responsive, helpful and knowledgeable. Buying and selling a house can be a stressful and unnerving experience, and Frazer understands and is there for you every step of the way. I was impressed how he handles sensitive or trying circumstances with poise, good humor and positivity. He is also just a really nice guy and fun to work with. I hope that I have the opportunity to work with Frazer again. I recommend him wholeheartedly!

Dee and her team walked us through the very difficult process of parting with our family home that we built and loved. They were professional, yet warm; efficient, yet patient; thorough, yet compassionate. They empowered us by creating safe spaces to pause and reflect with no pressure to make decisions quickly. Their common-sense approach was so refreshing and despite their busy practice we felt like we were their only clients. We are eternally grateful for the guidance and protection throughout the challenging journey. Thank you Dee and Frazer

Dear Dee, I just wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude to you and your team at Macdonald Realty, for exceptional service and support in helping me find a property on Bowen. From the very start you listened to my requirements and only positioned properties that you knew would be suitable for me. At no time did I feel any pressure and I really valued your counsel and the local knowledge in making my final decision. Initially I assessed all realtors on the Island, which has an abundance of excellent capability, but I felt your realistic personal approach best suited my needs and you definitely had my back at all stages and your local knowledge is second to none. I consider you a type of realtor that is “Old School”. That’s the way it should be. Your willingness to meet me at odd hours and numerous visits to my final decision along with your patience during thee visits were of immense support and assistance. Finally, your willingness to take all my calls and questions about services and trades available on the Island made my whole transition seem seamless, which it was. The kindness and thoughtfulness on the closing day by you and Frazer was absolutely amazing. Thank you, and the very best wishes for you and your staff for the future.

Dee and Frazer were an incredible help in our search for a building lot on Bowen. They gave honest and comprehensive advice and went above and beyond to assist us every step of the way. We couldnt be happier with the result and would recommend them without hesitation to anyone looking to buy on Bowen.

If you are considering buying and/or selling on Bowen, in my opinion, there is only one team you should be dealing with: Dee and Frazer Elliott. You will not find a more knowledgeable, hard-working, reliable, and above all, caring team. They helped me purchase and sell a home on Bowen. At all times they put people first. Frazer completely sold myself and my daughter on the family life style of Bowen with his description of his wonderful childhood growing up on Bowen. Dee listened to my needs and was patient and persistent in finding us the perfect home. Years later when we sold the home, Dee and Frazer were right there every step of the way. At my request, they sold every piece of furniture in the home in less than a week so the package up and move out was a breeze. It is with much sadness we left Bowen and we feel we left two special friends behind in Dee and Frazer. It is our hope, life will bring us back to Bowen one day and if it does, we know who we will be using to find us a new home: Dee and Frazer Elliott.

Selling your house is the incredibly difficult decision. Selecting Dee and Frazer is the insanely easy one. Caring, dedicated, overdelivering at every turn only begin to describe the characteristics that Dee and Frazer bring day in, day out. We have worked with a number of realtors over the years, and none come close to matching the way Dee and Frazer approach every piece of the initial listing through to final sale. We were referred to Dee and Frazer by friends and I would instantly make the same recommendation to anyone asking who to work with regardless of what they were buying or selling. Outstanding as realtors, even better as people.

It was a pleasure working with Dee and Frazer on the listing and sale of our mother’s house. They were professional, sensitive to our needs, listened to us and worked hard on our behalf. They are very experienced and knowledgeable of the real estate market on Bowen Island, provided us with helpful information and options, and prepared attractive and enticing marketing materials on the property. This team is every effective and has integrity. We might recommend Dee and Frazer for residential real estate on Bowen Island.

We have worked with Dee Elliott for several property transactions on Bowen Island – two purchases (2007 and 2011) and one sale (2015) – and we have the highest possible esteem for her talents as a realtor. She works immensely hard and is extremely thorough. She has great sensitivity to clients’ needs and whims. We especially appreciate that she is straight-talking: she tells it how it is and there are no nasty surprises later on. She is absolutely passionate about her job and works to find the best possible fit for each client. Her in-depth knowledge of Bowen Island is fantastically valuable, especially to clients who are moving here from elsewhere. Nothing is too much trouble for her, even down to passing along a mailbox key to the new owners, and if she doesn’t know the answer to a question she will find it out immediately. Frazer Elliott is also a joy to work with. His energy and enthusiasm is boundless. Dee and Frazer’s website is superb for buyers and for sellers alike. It’s easily accessed and the photographer and videographer they use deliver the best quality images imaginable. We have had no hesitation in returning to Dee as repeat clients and should the need arise in future, we would go straight to Dee and Frazer again.
