Juliette H.

Ryan has been absolutely fantastic. He helped us navigate a very tough real estate market in Victoria with the end result of securing the perfect home at the right price. With the current market so popular and so fast moving - this is not an easy thing to accomplish! Ryan was professional, knowledgeable and very patient - he kept us on track having clearly listened to our original goal as we ended up with a home that ticks every box on our list which in such a frenetic market I had almost pushed to one side! Thank you Ryan! I would recommend Ryan to anyone starting their property search in Victoria.

Andrew S.

Ryan went above and beyond in guiding us through all stages of buying and selling in a very fast-moving market. He helped us find the perfect home in a great neighbourhood by listening to what was important to us, and being realistic when it came to viewing a variety of properties in Victoria. He also had great advice when it came to selling our current home, and was extremely prompt and professional in all his communication. He is also well-connected in the realty community and was able to provide excellent recommendations for a variety of services. We highly recommend Ryan for your real estate needs!

Jed A.

Ryan was just the Realtor I was looking for. Very friendly, responsive and knowledgeable. He priced and sold my Victoria condo for me with no problem and navigated the multiple offers very well to get me the best price. He also had excellent tips on local lawyers and services I needed to get through the process, which was a great help since I don't live in the area. I would definitely use him again!

Enman

It was a pleasure doing business with Ryan. He was always friendly and professional, and extremely responsive when contacted. What we really appreciated was his candour around pricing and the market. We always felt supported and that he had our best interests at heart. We highly recommend his services!

Darren R.

Ryan helped us purchase our first home during the height of travel restrictions in March/April. This certainly was a challenge with us being out of town and not being able to view in-person. Ryan was very accomodating and helped us through multiple remote viewings and bids prior to finding the winner.

Mitchell H.

Ryan was my realtor as I hunted for a home in Vic as a first-time buyer. From the start, he was super friendly and never made me feel my 100lb dog was a difficult obstacle (like previous realtors had). He knows the island well (super helpful as I did not) and made the process really easy and fun! He was always quick to respond to my requests despite his busy schedule and was so positive we would find my dream home-- important since house hunting can sometimes leave you feeling impatient & disappointed! I also didn't have a car at the time so Ryan and Ashley were very accommodating, always being able to pick me up for open houses. During negotiations, he encouraged me to ask for what I wanted and never made me feel like a nuisance! I truly recommend Ryan for any and everyone who seeks a realtor. I'm so so happy with my home we found and feel so lucky to have found such a beautiful spot.

Thomas H.

We were so glad to have Ryan guide us through the fraught process of buying our first house. His relaxed and friendly demeanor put us at ease when we first started looking and he encouraged us to take as much time as we needed. Once we found something we liked he was 100% engaged and committed to helping us to develop our offer and conduct due diligence. We look forward to working with him again when we are ready for our next move.

Jessica EM.

Ryan (and Ashley) were lovely, competent, professional agents who provided a rare combination of confidence and warmth that really worked for us in looking for a home. We especially appreciated Ryan’s capacity to vision what “can be” in a space, combined with a very shrewd and calculating eye to what are financially worthwhile decisions (and what are not). We felt supported and listened to every step of the way - and were given very honest and direct opinions when asked. Ryan is also kind and has a great spirit that’s infectious - along with his more practical and strategic approach to real estate. We highly recommend him.

Miriam A.

Ryan helped me find my first condo! Ryan was able to answer all of my questions immediately, making the process of buying my first home and made it extremely easy for me. One thing I really appreciate about Ryan is that he was able to understand what I wanted and find something even better than what I described. Ryan is not only very professional but also easy to talk to.I would absolutely highly recommend his services if you were looking for a good realtor!

Niran A.

Awesome to work with - incredibly responsive around the clock. Really listens to what you want and is never pushy. Strongly recommend!

Sid B

I was so lucky to work with Ryan. He is everything you could possibly want in a realtor - incredibly responsive, very knowledgeable about both the properties and their surrounding areas, and 100% honest with you. His expertise was so appreciated at every step in the process, from helping me determine what exactly I was looking for to guiding me through an offer. Bonus points: He's also super fun to look at property with - my family and I had a great time at every place we saw!

Craven H.

It was truly a pleasure to work with Ryan as my real estate agent in Victoria. He provided me with timely and valuable advice on the sale of my condominium. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to my family and friends.

Brittany B.

I cannot speak highly enough of my experience with Ryan. From start to finish he was very responsive, kind, and a constant professional.

A Reddy

Ryan is and exceptional Realtor. His research and work ethic combined with a kind nature is standout. We were looking for a second home and being from the mainland Ryan was our ears and eyes. He made us feel we had nothing to worry about when it came fine print and history of everything we looked at. We would recommend him and use him again in the future. He made the process easy.

Meysam K

Ryan was an AWESOME agent! We were very fortunate to have found Ryan who assisted us in finding and purchasing our home! Even in difficult situations, he was patient, working very hard and solved problems right away. He always replied to our emails swiftly even on weekend evenings! Ryan had a really good understanding of the local market and we would definitely use him again next time we buy or sell a home. Highly recommended!

Ken A

We sold our home in the Estevan neighbourhood of Oak Bay in May of 2021, using Ryan as our seller's agent. Ryan was very responsive, communicated well, and friendly. He proposed a approach to selling our house that worked very well; by the time it was listed with MLS, there were already interested potential buyers ready to see it, and the house sold well above asking (which was also higher than we expected) in less than two days. Ryan managed the process very effectively; we knew at all times what was expected to happen next. We would certainly use Ryan again, and have no difficulty recommending him to others.

Chris G

Ryan was amazing helping us get our new lakehouse. He's incredibly knowledgeable, attentive, and prompt. Everything was easy and low-pressure. Thank you!

Ryan is amazing. My husband and I just bought our first house through him, and cannot imagine doing it with any other realtor.

AC

How lucky for us that my husband and I chose Ryan Cochrane as our realtor! He is a pleasure to deal with, responds quickly to queries, answered all our questions in a timely fashion, walked us through all the properties that interested us and basically made shopping for property from a different province--thanks to the pandemic and travel bans--relatively painless. His patience, in-depth knowledge of the area, good humour, thoughtfulness and professionalism were much appreciated. We look forward to working with him again.

B. Watson

We cannot speak more highly of Ryan as a real estate agent. He is trustworthy, patient, punctual and professional. We trusted Ryan had our best interest in mind throughout our whole house-hunting process. He provided us good insights on where to look, when to be flexible and when we should walk away. We are so grateful that helped us find our beautiful home and would highly recommend him to others who are looking for an agent who they can trust to find their dream home.

Z. Roff

Ryan recently helped us purchase our home in Victoria, and I couldn't recommend working with him enough! He was incredible the entire way through the process - from helping arrange viewings at convenient times, to helping scrutinize potential properties, to making offers and the negotiation phase. He was very responsive to all our communication. Most importantly he made us feel that he understood what we were looking for and helped us to find it - we never felt rushed or pushed to settle, if anything Ryan actually encouraged us to realize that what we wanted WAS out there and that we just had to be patient. We would certainly use him again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

Crawford S.

I was extremely happy working with Ryan Cochrane and highly recommend him for several reasons. Not only does he know the market well, but he is personable, punctual, extremely hard working and responds very quickly to any correspondence. He took the time to learn what our needs and preferences are, and showed us a variety of homes to help us sort out our priorities. When our dream home came up on the market, he messaged us immediately and arranged for us to see it before anyone else had the opportunity. We put an offer in thet same day, and won a bidding war without overpaying because Ryan is a skilled negotiator and advocated strongly for us. My husband and I are so happy about our new home! I would recommend Ryan Cochrane to anyone looking for a home!

Justine M.

Working with Ryan on our recent home purchase was an absolutely wonderful experience. He was professional and courteous throughout our time working together and can be counted on to provide an unbiased opinion. We viewed a number of different properties together and found Ryan to be very patient and diligent as we searched for the right property to fill our families needs. I have been through the home buying process on a number of occasions and highly recommend him for all of your real estate needs. Thank you so very much Ryan.

Manton V.

When you are buying or selling a property, it requires a skilled real estate agent to navigate the journey. Ryan Cochrane is that special person and we have been so pleased working with him for almost four months. He showed us his stamina, honesty, forthrightness and kindness. When the market became troublesome, Ryan smoothed the waters with his patience and positive attitude. I would recommend him to everyone who is considering a real estate transaction. His behaviour is like a true Olympian and you won't be disappointed.

Ryan made our sale a simple and straightforward process. Always professional and courteous, the timely updates along the way made working with him a pleasure. No question was too small or insignificant, and no ask was too much. Anyone who is looking for representation either buying or selling, should stop searching and call Ryan. He will demonstrate the dedication needed to see your real estate transaction to a successful conclusion.

Kim T.

We hired Ryan to sell our oceanfront cottage and couldn't be happier with how hard he worked to represent us. We appreciated his updates and communication and how quickly he would get back to us if we had questions. Ryan makes it easy to trust him with the entire process and we would happily buy or sell with him in the future. You will not be disappointed having Ryan represent you in a purchase or sale.

Paul C.

Ryan was great. We were looking for a condo that met very specific accessibility needs, which Ryan immediately understood. He went around to the condos on our viewing list in advance to confirm whether they would meet our accessibility needs, which saved us a huge amount of time and frustration. Of course he helped us find something that is just perfect for us. I highly recommend Ryan.

M. & Lynn B.

Ryan helped us to buy a home that Lynn was unable to visit during the pandemic.
