If anyone thinks they must hang around until their house sells forget it . I decided to take a 32 day cruise half way around the world , the house sold and because of Nancy's knowledge of modern technology everything was done over the internet , I still can't believe how I was able to sign all the papers on line , sitting on a cruise ship docked in St . Petersburg , Russia . THANK YOU again so much . All the best . Les
Now that we are in the enjoyable process of making a home from the new house you helped us find, we wanted to make sure to pass on our heartfelt thanks. From the day we first contacted you to view a listing you had in our favorite Qualicum neighbourhood up to last week when we got the keys to our new house, we have been so appreciative of the care and attention you gave to our search. Your total understanding of the market, knowledge of the area and quick recognition of what we were looking for as well as your always patient attitude made this the best and least stressful house purchase we’ve ever experienced. We actually had fun buying this home! So thanks again Nancy – you are terrific at what you do!
Janice and Thom
“Excellent, professional, unique and enjoyable. The effort taken to ensure relevance to our requirements ensured the optimum outcome.”
I would like to say how happy I am with the way the sale of the house went. Your team of people all worked so well making the showings very easy to work around.
Al would have been very happy to know you looked after the sale for me.
I was so pleased to meet the buyer... she is perfect for this house. Both of us are just so happy with the end results.
I will definitely refer you to any of my friends or neighbours if they are interested in selling.
Thank you again for all your time and patience,
Wow, were we lucky! When we decided to look in Parksville for a new home, our realtor at home and a personal friend both immediately said “call Nancy Bolch, she is the best!”
Nancy was professional, knew the local market and most importantly, listened when we told her what our needs were. She was calm and a pleasure to work with, even during negotiations in a busy market.
Nancy, you are a treasure!
Thank you from
Howie & Bonnie
Nearly 10 years have passed by, since the day I walked into the ReMAX office in Qualicum Beach and asked to speak to a realtor. It was my good fortune that you were on duty that day.
I am writing to extend to you a sincere and heartfelt THANK YOU for the countless houses you have shown me, whenever I have visited the Nanaimo to Qualicum Beach area in the last 10 years. I doubt if I would have found and bought my new house had it not been for your expertise and knowledge, always accompanied with a cheerful smile and unlimited patience. Not only did you help me buy a house but, you sold me on an Island, and an Island lifestyle. I am also thankful for the countless small things you have done since the sale of my house, liaising me with the builder and real estate lawyers.
I am looking forward to moving to my new house in Parksville with great anticipation. I couldn’t be happier!
My warmest regards,
I have had the pleasure of working with Nancy Bolch on the purchase of my new home. I am new to the area, and I had to find a realtor, without anyone to recommend me someone to work with.
I picked her, for the sole fact that she had the same name as mine. I could not have made a better choice. I feel she went so far above and beyond what her responsibility as a realtor are, and I am very grateful.
Nancy worked with me on the days that I could come up looking, and we toured endless homes. She worked hard at making a very stressful situation much smoother, and answered endless questions from me, and found the information that I needed for moving into my new home. And most of all, she found the perfect home for me!!!
Would I ever use her again for another move? In a heartbeat, and I highly recommend her for both buying and selling of homes.
If I ever have to move again, I know who I will be calling. Thanks, Nancy!!
We're settling in here and you can take a lot of the credit.
Our move went smoothly from start to finish and getting occupancy a day early was a real bonus.
So, how did it all happen?
Our daughter, Debbie mentioned to her friend Jill Pinkerton that we were moving here and Jill told her that you were the realtor we needed.
I suppose this is the point where we say, "and the rest is history", but that was just the beginning.
Starting with the house at 518 Dalmation, it was obvious that you were listening to and noting our comments with the result that you quickly zeroed in on our financial comfort zone, the area we wanted to live in, the size of home we were looking for and the features and amenities we wanted.
Putting us on that web site for new listings was great because it was tailored to the price, size, features and that all important location,location,location. That service enabled us to spot this home within a couple of days of it being listed and making an offer on it by about day 7.
On those occasions when you took us house viewing, we were delighted to get the folders showing the listing info and photos of the homes we would be seeing and arranged in the order we would be visiting them.
We hope we get the opportunity to recommend you to someone in the future.
Don and Linda
Thank you so much, Nancy, for helping us find our dream property on Vancouver island. We would recommend your services to anyone. We so appreciate you always being happy to show us properties in spite of the fact we have literally been looking for years. You answered our many questions and researched information on properties or led us in the right direction to find more information. You recommended good people for home, well and septic inspections. We trust you completely!
Cheri and Michael
Good Morning Nancy,
We would like to take this opportunity to express our appreciation for the excellent and thorough service you and your staff provided in the purchase and later the sale of our strata unit. Your attention to detail and availability to answer our questions were much appreciated.
We also appreciate your follow-up interest in the settling in period.
This sort of attention is much appreciated.
Thank you very much,
Lois & Dave
We are just settling in to our beautiful new home. Thank you Nancy! We had decided to sell our 3 ¼ acre home and property and downsize so we could free up time for travelling. Nancy arrived to give us an evaluation and understood that we were not just selling a house but a home with many good memories. She was genuinely interested in our stories of milestones over the years and then listened while we shared the kind of home we were now looking for.
Nancy’s expertise and professionalism was much appreciated. And her always positive and cheerful attitude helped ease what is naturally a stressful time. We would also like to “Thank” Nancy’s Assistant Karen for providing constant communication that is so important.
To those who are considering selling or buying a home we encourage you to choose Nancy Bolch who will open doors thoughtfully selected for those that walk through them.
Jill and Merle
Here are a couple of more fans with something special to say.
We would like to say " Thank You " to Nancy Bolch, for helping us with the purchase of our new home. Nancy is very professional, positive, friendly and approachable.
My husband Gary and I made our move from Victoria to Qualicum beach to the home we love and Nancy helped make the transition all go so smoothly. There were lots of phone calls back and forth to Nancy and she always got back to us in record time, we never had to wait long for her to return calls. If she was out with another client her associate Karen addressed our needs and assured us Nancy would return our call soon. We trusted in Nancy and her expertise all the way. She helped out in many ways, answered all of our questions and faxed documents and papers to our Realtor in Victoria so we could have access to them quickly.
We had a clause that was "subject to the sale of our home in Victoria." At one point it looked like we were not going to sell our home in time to buy the home we loved in Qualicum. At that point I was feeling discouraged and saddened thinking I had to let the home of my dreams go. Nancy then filled me with hope and told me not to give up and to hold on to that dream. The day the clause was to be lifted, our home in Victoria sold! It's interesting how life works out sometimes. We bought our new home in Qualicum beach and are nicely settled in and we just love it. We were so blessed to have had Nancy Bolch as our Realtor. Hats off to you Nancy !!
Also, thank you to Re/Max and to Karen.
Gary and Sandra
I would like to take this opportunity to say that I would highly recommend Nancy Bolch to anyone considering buying or selling a home. After losing my husband, I decided to sell my home and purchase another one. Nancy provided me with all the pertinent information that I needed to list the home and within 3 weeks the home was sold. She also helped me buy my new home. Nancy is not only very knowledgeable, she is helpful and eager to go that extra mile. She did many little 'extras' for me that were so helpful.
Thank you to Nancy and the staff at Remax for a job well done.
and daughter (Gaye)
Having Nancy Bolch represent us as our realtor has not only been a genuine pleasure but an extraordinary privilege.
From our past and present experiences in both purchasing and selling real estate Nancy stands out shoulders above the rest.
Nancy provides not only top notch service in a seamless fashion but also provides the emotional support and confidence in assuring that every detail had been considered and dealt with in the most appropriate and expedient manner possible.
Nancy Bolch is an outstanding example of excellence at its highest level; therefore we would recommend Nancy without hesitation or reservation for all your real estate needs.
David and Gail
We were first time homebuyers and had been living on Vancouver Island for less than 2 years. Nancy had been referred to us by a mutual friend and she proved to be a great help to us and went the extra mile in making sure that we were satisfied with every detail of the home that we were looking for. She also focused on making sure that all information was accurate and credible , such as remeasuring all the rooms and the perimeter of the house just to make sure that our worries were put to rest.
We are fortunate to have met Nancy, who is hardworking and a very reliable real estate broker. She really did a great job in helping us to find our home. She is always proactive and goes the extra mile, which exceeded our expectations.
My wife and I would definitely recommend her if we happen to know of someone who is looking for a realtor.
We will always be grateful to Nancy for helping to make our dreams come true,
Ken and Michelle
It’s been a great pleasure to have you help me sell my house and buy another. Your experience as a Realtor has made the selling and buying of houses less stressful.
I find you were very helpful in the decisions I had to make. Explaining my options and the best way to do them.
Working late at night to get me that house. I thank you very much for all the help.
It was made easier to do this because I had a Realtor that helped me so much.
You are a very friendly & helpful person. You went the whole nine yards to do it.
I thank you again.
We like to thank you and your team, for selling our home. You were able to address and communicate all our concerns in selling our home. You gave us your cell numbers so we could always have access to you, to address any concerns we may have had . You even called back us on your holiday. You qualified potential buyers before showing our home and followed-up with feed back after the showing. We gladly recommend you to any one looking to buy or sell their home, your a true professional. Its been a pleasure.
Carla and Will
Just another couple of Raving Fans. In May 2010 Nancy listed our home in Qualicum, and the first client who came through during that first week, bought the place.
We cannot speak highly enough of Nancy’s professionalism, her personality, her attention to detail (oh, the detail !), her unwavering diligence to stay connected through every step of the process - absolutely superb.
Nancy also brings with her a brilliant personal connectedness which made us feel, at all stages, that we were her single, prime target and nothing was ever a bother, nor came between her concentration and dedication to always keep us in the loop.
Just about any top shelf description you could dream up applies to how Nancy conducted business, yet seamlessly maintained a wonderfully deep caring and sensitive nature that absolutely shone through on every occasion we met. She plied us with her “goodies” - we have so many pens ... we could write a book.
If you want The Best - Nancy (and her brilliant team) are the ones to phone = Now.
All the best Nancy.
Grant & Loretta
Nancy and her assistant, Karen, were great to work with when I sold my house. Nancy was extremely informative about the current housing market as well as the process involved in selling a house. Both Nancy and Karen were always quick to respond whenever I had questions. Because of Nancy’s great advice my house sold very quickly and without any problems. Nancy and Karen made selling my home an easy experience. I would be happy to work with Nancy again and would strongly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor.

This lady is a class act and unless you want to settle for less, we highly recommend working with Nancy Bolch whether you're buying or selling.
She's the epitome of a first class real estate agent - professional but with empathy, informative both before and after the real estate transaction, meticulous attention to detail, terrific caring personality.
This lady is a star.

Thanks for all you have done for us, we really appreciated it and you.
You are one hard working young lady. You are so caring, confident, honest, and willing to help no matter how late in the day or night. We couldn't have made the purchase of our new home so smoothly was it not for you. Your smile and pleasant manner make it a pleasure doing business with your Realty Company. You are a truly strong asset to the Parksville/Qualicum Realty Corporation. Keep up the good job, but please remember to find time for relaxation for you and your husband. You are number ONE in our eyes.
Barbara & Ron
Dear Ms. Bolch:
At least two years ago we requested you provide us with real estate listings, within certain parameters, for the Qualicum Beach area. Our request, without commitment from us, was met on a regular and consistent basis throughout the entire period.
May of this year we listed our Alberta property and sold it in June with a July 29th possession date. We contacted you with about three days notice to advise we were flying into Qualicum Beach Friday, June 19 for a five day "house-hunting trip" during which time we needed to purchase a home with a July end possession date.
Upon arrival we were very pleased to find you had thirteen houses within our criteria arranged for us to see and further had two bound booklets, one for each of us, showing the listing information for each of the houses we were to tour. At the conclusion of day one, we agreed to meet the next day. Consistent with our first experience; you had another thirteen houses lined up complete with a bound booklet for each of us as you had done for the first day. Day three followed suit. Day four we reduced our list and placed an offer on our current home. The offer had complications, which were dealt by you as just a matter of course and you saw it through well into the night. The purchase completed with a closure date within our needs.
We'd like to thank you for your very hard work and long hours, as you had to have worked well into the night on each of those days. We have purchased a number of homes over the years and never have we had the support and service from a Realtor comarable to that provided to us by you.
We would be pleased to provide an unconditional reference for you at any time.
Yours very truly,
Robin and Pauline
Thank you very much for your help in selling and buying a house.
Your suggestions on selecting and financing our new home were extremely valuable, You gave generously of your time helping us to find that home.
You helped to remove a lot of the anxiety of this process by being always available to answer our questions and cheerfully doing so.
We thank you very much again and we would recommend your services to any of our friends.
Martha & Herb
Both Caroline and I would like to extend our sincere thanks to you and your assistant for making the purchase of our new home so easy! After being out of the property market for some years we had forgotten how complex the process of purchasing a home could be - and also how stessful! However working with you was a dream! You were constantly cheerful and upbeat, understood our requirements, and even managed to answer our questions before we even asked them. As a professional myself, I certainly appreciated your ability to keep appointments - a courtesy not seen enough these days! I would certainly be only too pleased to recommend you to anyone who is searching for a true professional to help with a home or property purchase, Caroline and I cannot praise you highly enough - again, our most sincere thanks!
Best Wishes, Jerry & Caroline.
To whom it may concern,
Recently we sold and bought a house with the professional help of Nancy Bolch.
Yes a 100% professional she is!!!
We really enjoyed "working" with her, she gave us terrific advice and she was always there when we needed her.
For us she was an A+ realtor. We certainly recommend her name to anybody who needs a realtor. She deserves all the best credits and all the staff at the office are also wonderful and very friendly people.
May the Lord Bless you all.
Warmest greetings and our love, Dirk and Grace from Parksville.
Just a short note to let you know how much we appreciate all the time and effort you took on our behalf to help us find our wonderful retirement place "in paradise".
When we began this search almost a year ago (!) we had no idea how many areas we'd be looking in, or how many homes we'd view. Throughout this venture we've come to value your support, professionalism, common sense and good ideas and suggestions. When it came time to close this deal you made it happen, in spite of the unusual circumstances that existed.
As you know a friend of ours who is one of your previous clients recommended you as a realtor we should deal with, and we are thankful we followed his advice. I would (and have already) recommend you to others without reservation.
It has truly been a pleasure to meet and deal with you - we hope to see you around the neighbourhood in the years to come.
Very sincerely yours,
Norm & Terry
Thank you for the assistance with the purchase of our home in
Parksville. You were always punctual, professional, accessible,
hardworking and very pleasant and caring.
A joy to have you as our realtor. We would certainly recommend your
services to friends and family.
Gill and Barbara
We can honestly say that Nancy's knowledge of the real estate market is equally matched by her honest and dedicated nature towards her clients. Nancy ensures she understands her clients' needs and is an attentive listener.
She is the epitome of a professional Realtor. This was particularly evident during the negotiation stages of the purchase of our QualicumBeach property. She ensured that every detail was performed in a punctual manner and gave great advice with regards to the counter offer and negotiation process – which had previously always been a frustrating experience for us. The whole process of purchasing our house was a delight, and Nancy made one of the biggest purchases in our lives an enjoyable and comfortable experience.
In truth, we came to Nancy Bolch after an unsatisfactory experience with another agent. What a difference! She certainly fulfilled all our expectations, and then some – a professional real estate agent who was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Most notable was her comprehensive knowledge about the housing market in the Oceanside area – that was definitely value-added.
Jennifer & Steve Hulme
Dear Nancy: Now that we have more or less settled into our new home and the piles of boxes are going down, we wanted to take time to thank you for all the time and effort you spent on our behalf. We chose you to act as our Realtor after viewing your excellent website and seeing so many testimonials from satisfied clients. We made the right decision. You provided us with up to date information about competitive listings in our neighbourhood which helped us to decide on a realistic sale price. At the same time, your daily email listings of Nanaimo properties in the areas we preferred enabled us to act quickly to find and purchase the home we were looking for. Nancy, we sincerely appreciate the personal service you gave us from start to finish and we wish you continued success in the future.
Heather & Richard
Nancy Bolch helped us find and buy a house in Qualicum Beach within 3 weeks. She was available in the busy summer season to show us homes any day and time we asked and was also available through her pager to answer questions at any time of the day any day of the week.
We found Nancy to be friendly, hard-working, and a wealth of information regarding all aspects of real estate, and Oceanside living in general. She has lived and worked here for 9 years. If we asked for additional information about specific properties, she investigated and provided the information to us very promptly.
Nancy never appeared to tire and showed us over 30 homes in a 4-day period. She was prompt and helpful when we wrote offers, and phoned us with counter-offers very promptly. She is meticulous in terms of the details of purchase offers, such as items to be included with the house.
We will encourage our friends to engage Nancy for all their home buying and selling needs.
Susan Johnson & Paul Foley
My husband and I cannot say enough great things about Nancy. After having some problems in the selling of our house with another realtor we were introduced to Nancy. She certainly met all of our expectations and took the time to talk to us and inform us what was going on in the real estate market in Oceanside. Her knowledge and professional experience is what sold us and once she got our listing we sold very quickly.
Nancy is very personable with her clients and she certainly makes you feel that she cares. We would highly recommend Nancy to our friends and family and also be more than happy to use her for any real estate needs that we may have in the future.

My wife and I were recently transferred with my employer to the Vancouver, BC area and as a result we were required to sell both our primary residence as well as our rental property. We enlisted the services of Nancy BOLCH with REMAX Anchor Realty and were very pleased with the results that followed.
Nancy met with us and we outlined our timelines and she sought our input regarding pricing, highlights of the home and she fully explained the process of working with a Realtor.
Nancy has numerous strengths, but her professionalism and positive attitude are at the forefront at all times when dealing with her. Nancy provided feedback after each and every showing, which is quite important and appreciated when one is wondering if the house shows well during this stressful time.
During negotiations, Nancy was fully available and was a terrific resource in providing strategies and options to successfully close the deal.
As we were transferring into a new area and did not know any Realtors, we asked Nancy to research and provide some possible options. As a result, Nancy put us in touch with a fantastic realtor who assisted us in buying our new home.
If you are considering buying or selling, you will be very impressed with the realty services provided by Nancy BOLCH.
David L. SPENCER
I want to commend Nancy Bolch for what was outstanding service in the sale of our home.
Throughout the listing time she did everything she said she would, she kept me informed of visits, feedback etc. All of this is what I expect from my Realtor, but I certainly appreciated that she met my expectations.
However, there is an additional thanks to her from the two of us. On the day of closing I discovered a significant problem that would have impacted me personally in a huge way. Immediately on being informed, she took an amazing ethical stance and dealt with the problem instantly. I admit I was in a total panic and needed someone strong in my corner! She was there in every sense of the word. Thanks Nancy!
I want you to be aware of our appreciation and I will, most certainly, refer her to any friends needing real estate help.
When we decided to sell our Qualicum Beach home this past summer, we did a lot of our own research for several months. When it came time to chose a realtor, we had a pretty good idea what it would sell for and how to market it.
After receiving 5 extensive evaluations from local realtors, we decided on Nancy Bolch for a number of reasons. First, we were impressed with her formal marketing credentials from Capilano College which can be seen in the care and substance of her online listings. Second, as a "relative" new-comer to the Qualicum market, Nancy had none of the "area bias" we detected in some of the long time QB realtors. Third, the comparisons she chose in her evaluation were extremely accurate in their relevancy to our home and she had obviously visited these homes and taken notes. It is important to note that the listing price she recommended was not the highest of the five evaluations but right in the middle. Fourth, she is extremely personable and is able to communicate her thoughts and opinions very well. Most important, Nancy believed in the marketability of our home despite the fact it was not the typical property in our area. The house sold in one month.
We whole heartedly recommend Nancy Bolch as a realtor with integrity, a strong work ethic, exemplary communication skills, and a studied but fresh view of the local market.
Sharman and Rob
Nancy Bolch is by far one of the best Realtors that we have met. Nancy sold our house in Qualicum Beach and then took us "shopping" for a new home in Nanaimo, BC. She was fun and extremly pleasant throughout the whole time we looked, she found us our very nice home.
However, it doesn't stop there, we moved to the Okanagan and bought a very nice condo in Penticton. We had to come back to Vancouver Island and there was Nancy to the rescue, she contacted a realtor (The top Salesman in Penticton) and he sold it within days.
We feel that Nancy cares very much for her clients, becomes involved and helps them more than any realtor would. She is number 1 as far as we're concerned.
Danielle and Eleanor
My husband and I have purchased two home now with Nancy, and both times she
Rick and Janette
We have known and dealt with Nancy Bolch for over a year and have sold one, and bought two properties with her! All deals have been executed professionally, and with no problems!
When looking for property, Nancy has presented a large variety in the price range requested, and her opinion with respect to each has been helpful and accurate.
At no time have we felt pressured to purchase, and Nancy has taken time to find the right properties, with the final decision left to us.
You will find Nancy to be an energetic, knowledgeable, experienced and honest real estate agent!
Fred and Leigh
We had the good fortune to be clients of Nancy Bolch. We spent four months corresponding about possible home sites in the Qualicum Beach area in 2005. She gave us all of her time whenever we visited her. I believe she truly wanted us to know the area and feel comfortable with the locations to which we narrowed our search. We discussed everything and any questions were responded to us by long distance immediatelly. The purchase of our retirement home was dealt with in a very professional manner. I felt she represented me during the purchase cycle while I was thousands of miles away.
With sincere appreciation,
Ginny and Rich
We wish to thank you for the super job you did on the sale of our property. From the listing to the sale, we were delighted with your input, advice and detailed advertising. You are the most efficient realtor that we have ever worked with; simply the best!
Frank & Pepper
I wish to thank you for the care and attention you gave both in selling my home and in finding me a new place to live. Selling the house within a month at the price I set and finding an affordable new (to me) home in the same space of time made a difficult personal situation almost easy.
Now that I've lived in my home for almost a month, I like it even more than when I first looked at it. I has much more room than I anticipated and the surrounding amenities which I hadn't really thought about before, certainly makes it very comfortable.
Please feel free to use this letter as you see fit.
When we were first looking to sell our house, we interviewed a few realtors to get a feeling to see who we thought could get the job done, and who we thought we could work with the best. Hands down, it was Nancy.
From the get-go, Nancy's professionalism and dedication to task were evident. Within 24 hours of signing the listing agreement, she had arranged for a virtual tour photography shooting session, a still photo shooting session, consulted with us on the newspaper write-up, had the newspaper advertisement placed in the newspaper within 2 days, and had arranged for our house to be on the realtor's tour.
Nancy was fully accessible at all times, returned all phone calls promptly, (10 minutes being the norm), and kept us fully informed of viewings and gave us feedback on all the viewings. She is extremely knowledeable in the field of local real estate.
During negotiations, again, Nancy was there every step of the way, working tirelessly to reach a satisfactory agreement. She made the entire process as simple and stress free as possible, for us the seller.
Nancy exudes positive energy, a love for her job, and a genuine caring for her clients.
We have no hesitation whatsoever in highly recommending Nancy Bolch as your next realtor. If you are looking for a top quality, honest hardworking, pleasant, and dedicated professional realtor, then Nancy is the one for you.
A. and F.
I would like to take this time, (in the middle of packing), to mention how appreciative I was with the business like fashion and patience shown by my realtor, Nancy Bolch.
Whenever there were questions, which sometimes needed some research, Nancy had an answer for me in a prompt and efficient manner.
At a somewhat anxious time, Nancy was always ready with information due to her vast experience as a proficient Realtor.
I would not hesitate to recommend Nancy to any friend or relative looking to buy or sell real estate.
