Consulting a REALTOR®
REALTORS® are members of The Canadian Real Estate Association who subscribe to a Code of Ethics and Standards of Business Practice. Members of the Victoria Real Estate Board are members of both the British Columbia and Canadian Real Estate Associations.The following is a list of services you can expect to receive from a REALTOR® when you buy a home:
- A REALTOR® will fully explain the details of your working relationship (called "agency") so that you are clear as to when a REALTOR® is working for you or for the seller.
- A REALTOR® has access to hundreds of current listings of homes for sale because of a co- operative system called the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®).
- A REALTOR® can provide you with a customized list of homes that best meet your needs -- size, style, features, location, proximity to schools, shopping, etc. - and then make arrangements for you to view those homes that appeal to you the most.
- A REALTOR® will help you determine how big a home you can afford. REALTORs® are familiar with the local lending market and can offer helpful advice.
- A REALTOR® has no emotional ties to any type or style of home and can be objective in pointing out the merits of one home over another.
- A REALTOR® will have information on zoning changes, taxes, utility costs and school and recreation services that could affect your decision to buy a home in a specific area.
- A REALTOR® will assist you in negotiating the terms of your purchase, which can be a nerve- wracking process for someone who is not experienced in negotiating.
- A REALTOR® will advise you of the legal process required in obtaining title and taking possession of your property; the costs associated with buying a home such as insurance, mortgage registration and legal fees will be explained in detail.

Selling Your Home - Why it Pays to Use a REALTOR®
Before selling your home, you will need a clear understanding of the legal issues and potential pitfalls. One wrong action could result in a lot of cost and frustration, which is why it is essential to have a REALTOR® working with you, as he or she will make the sale of your home a successful and satisfying experience.Greater exposure
REALTORS® use the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) to give your home maximum exposure. MLS® is a computer-based system that relays valuable information about your home to hundreds of REALTORS® and potential homebuyers.Setting a price
Setting a price for your home is an important but difficult process. Again, this is where the services of a REALTOR® prove invaluable. REALTORS® have the experience to help you understand how the market works and decide upon a realistic price that meets your goals. REALTORS® also pre-screen potential buyers to make sure only those who are serious and financially qualified view your home.
REALTORS® will also develop a marketing plan to help your property receive maximum exposure. This will likely include placing your home on the MLS® system and placing a "For Sale" sign on the front lawn. The plan will likely also include arranging open houses for other REALTORS® and potential buyers, and developing advertisements and feature sheets/mailers to market your home.
Once you have accepted an offer to buy your home, your REALTOR® will help ensure that all the proper paperwork is completed. He or she will also make sure that both parties meet the necessary conditions outlined in the agreement.Why working with a REALTOR® makes sense
When you work with a REALTOR® you will likely get a better price for your home than if you try to sell it yourself. Apart from the financial benefits, however, there is an extra measure of comfort and security that comes from having a REALTOR® on your side. Remember that REALTORS® are governed by a code of ethics and standards of business practice. They have also been trained and licensed under the provincial Real Estate Services Act to assist in transactions involving real property. When it comes to buying or selling property, using a REALTOR® just makes sense.

About Me, Shannon Norris
Hey, I'm Shannon. I specialize in providing a comfortable, personable and step-by-step service to people who are looking to buy a home here on Vancouver Island. I am a Specialized Buyer's Agent in the Duncan Area, Town of Ladysmith and Nanaimo Region. I work with both rural and urban properties and have specialized training when dealing with strata homes. In 2018 achieved the Top 10% Sales Leader Award and the #2 New Agent. My years of experience and positive customer feedback keep motivating me to help people find their dream home.
I knows and love Vancouver Island.
Before real estate I worked in government in a community development and customer service capacity. I also put in my fair share of years as a waitress, which paid my way through university. I received a bachelors in Tourism Management and finished with honors.
I am always looking to take on new clients. I welcome all demographics. I really enjoy working with first time and experienced home buyers. Please be sure to send anyone you know, who's in the market, my way. I can also help you sell your home, if that's part of your transition but we will be sure to find you something great before we start off your sale process.
Feel free to call me directly and we can set up a custom search right away.

Thank you Shannon!!
It is so nice to hear from you. You have been such a big help to me. I will tell everybody that is in the market for a new home about you. Thanks so much for all the work you have done for us. I wish there was something I could do for you - Maybe some knitting?
S & J
Shannon is highly reliable. She listened with compassion and understood exactly what I was looking for. She had a professional patience that was very much appreciated through all of the ups and downs of my purchase process.
Thank you Shannon
Shannon acted as our
exclusive Buyers Agent and was tireless in her search on our behalf. We are
long-distance buyers (from the Island but not there at this time) - so it
complicated the matter greatly. She always had great ideas and never gave up.
She really knows her market and will steer you in the right direction.

Things are going good so far, we are settling in well. We would not change anything. Your service was great. If anyone is looking to sell or buy, we will refer them to you definitely :) We really liked how you got back to us really fast whenever we had a question.
I hired Shannon Norris as my REALTOR® because she was a friend. This had to be the best decision I could have made. Right from day one she was great. My husband and I weren't in a huge rush to sell our current home and buy a new one but we knew that with our growing family it would need to happen in the near future. Both of us never felt pressured by Shannon to buy right away. We looked at many houses and Shannon was great. She gave feedback on what she thought was good for our family in each place, and advised us about anything that we might want to have looked at before buying. Any time we wanted to see a house she could get us in to see them so quickly. Any time I called or emailed her she was right on top of things and got back to me in no time. She made us feel like we were the only customers she was working with. While selling our home we went through a bit of a rough patch, and Shannon was right there through all of it. She was so knowledgeable on our rights and gave us advice on what to do. She made the hard time of selling a home so much easier. All in all Shannon was an amazing person to work with. We are so happy with our new home. Shannon was very knowledgeable, always happy and with a positive outlook even in the worst of situations. I would not hesitate to hire her again and have already recommended her to family and friends.
We wish her a lifelong career because she was made for this job.

Moving from California to Vancouver Island is no easy feat. We had the unique opportunity to be connected to Shannon through another real estate agent in Comox... During our island house hunt we also had an unfortunate accident that laid one of us up in the hospital for weeks. With everything turned upside down in mid house hunt and only a couple of days to look before heading back to the US, we decided to contact Shannon to see what she could show us. Shannon was Amazing. Available literally on the spot and flexible to everything we needed. We had a list of homes we had targeted and she was able to get us into view them with one day notice. Her enthusiasm is contagious and she spent a lot of time explaining not only the details of each house but the area and we could expect with living on the island. When we found our home we sprang into action and I literally made the deal at the airport while I was commuting back to California. It was such an easy process and once Shannon took over it was just a matter of sitting back while she made sure everything was taken care of. That is exactly what we needed. Her attention to detail was integral to us. We were familiar with the US real estate market but the Canadian market was very different. She was patient but always kept us on tract and when we finally walked into our new home she graciously left us with a wonderful gift basket with a refreshing bottle of wine and other fun goodies. It was a welcoming experience to our new life and to this day she still offer to come by and help us... I highly recommend Shannon to anyone who is looking for a home North of the Malahat. She is fun, bright and loves what she does. You won't be disappointed!
We are doing great, we are planning to start building in the fall 😊, so excited!!
Thank you so much for your all your help during our buying process. You were amazing searching and showing us the properties which were exactly what we were looking for. You did everything possible to get in touch with the owners of the property, that was not for sale, but that we fell in love with. You gave us the chance to purchase it. You were “on it” as soon as they decided to sell and helped us through the whole process of making an offer and finalize everything. You were available to help us no matter what time it was. You had so much patience to get through all the paperwork with us and answer all our questions with your big knowledge. We could feel you were there for us with your heart and that it was not just business! You got all the answers to all the questions we had and did everything to help us remove all the subjects from our long list. We could not have done it without your helping hands! Purchasing a lot or house has its up and downs. You helped us get things ready, pull things together easily, and you always helped us to calm down. When someone wants to purchase the right place and they need a Realtor who is always there for them through the whole process from the start till the final purchase. Shannon did all that. She was there for us with her amazing knowledge about everything, helping us like a friend. We know we did all right and we are so happy with purchasing the lot what we fell in love with. Now we are going to start building our dream home and that would have not happened without her help! Thanks so much Shannon, we appreciate all your help and being there for us with your heart and professional knowledge.
We are so happy we choose Pemberton Holmes and you as our Realtor.
