Antonio Hurtado

Our experience with Heidi as our realtor was overwhelmingly positive.

As a young, relatively inexperienced (in real estate) couple Heidi did an amazing job walking us through our first home purchase. She turned what could have been a stressful time for us into an exciting experience. She made sure we understood every step of the home-buying process while securing us a great deal on a phenomenal property. In what can be a trying time for all of us while dealing with this pandemic, Heidi was a consummate professional and made sure our families needs and safety came first. The only complaint I have is that I'm constantly worried the police are going to come knocking to arrest us for the steal of a deal we got on our property! We would recommend Heidi to absolutely anyone; friends, family, complete strangers, it doesn't matter. She will go above and beyond to make sure your real estate needs are met.

Spencer Maclean

Joanna was a great help to us in selling our home.

She is friendly and professional and sold our home in 6 days!

Lori S

We hadn't worked with a realtor in a LOOONNGG while (23 years) and were trying to find our retirement home.

Heidi made us feel valued and cared about, even as we searched for that elusive 'final' home. When it came to selling our home, Heidi went out of her way to make the journey as easy and painless as possible. She was very straightforward and honest in her appraisal of our home and what was needed to prepare it for sale (not much, thankfully!). The web presentation she put together looked fabulous and we sold for OVER our asking price! It was an amazing experience and we would unreservedly and heartily recommend Heidi. She is an amazing, professional realtor of the first class.

Don Tolson

Heidi was so professional and easy to work with.

She went over and above to help us with both selling one home and buying another. I never expected how much she offered to help with things and followed through on those offers. She is also just a genuinely nice person. I would recommend Heidi to anyone who needs the service of a realtor either buying or selling.

Dan Dougan

We just bought a house with the professional help of Joanna Manning and we are very thankful for her careful attention to who we are and what we wanted and needed in a retirement home.

She listened to us, did not waste time taking us to see places that would not suit us or our budget. She was amazing and helped us find the best property. Thanks Joanna.

Cynthia S

I've got Heidi as my realtor thru social media.

I don't know any realtor, I just based on the rates and recommendations thru other clients. She is alway on the top list. As a first time homebuyer, Heidi did an amazing job, she went above and beyond finding our very first home. She has all the answer to my questions, problem solver, and my calmer everytime I freaked out into every little things.😁 very professional. With her, client- realtor did not end when you purchased a place, she always checked on us and our house every now and then making sure we are happy. If I can only give the more than highest ratings, I'm gladly give it her. My family, (my boys) forever thankful to you for guiding us, and helped us finding our 1st Home. It was a pleasure working with you.

Pamela Bugia

Heidi is extremely friendly, approachable, and helpful from beginning to end.

She helped my wife and I sell our house in under a week, and significantly over asking price. She was also there if we needed help with anything else, including subsequent cleanup and move! Heidi is an honest and fair, no-BS realtor that is there to get the best deal sealed for YOU, and not waste your time in the process. I would 100% recommend her to anyone looking to buy a new home or sell their current one.

Maxwell Murai

Joanna Manning is wonderful to work with.

She helped us find the perfect home for us. The process was was smooth and the best it could have been. Joanna has integrity and is honest and truly cared about what was right for us. Thanks to her support and fantastic representation, we were able to win the bid on our new dream home :) For a great experience, I highly recommend using her to help with the sale or purchase of your home.

Shea B

I recently relocated from the Mainland to Victoria and Joanna helped me find the "Perfect" place for my needs and my budget as well.

She is very professional and very friendly. She cares about her clients and listens to their needs and wants. I highly recommend her to any one looking for a Realtor.

Colleen W

Heidi is amazing!

We hired her to sell our house and help us find the perfect next house for our family. She helped ‘hold our hand’ until we were ready. She gave us great advice on how to prepare our home with the perfect amount of motivation and realism. She helped us along through the whole process of selling. She found and viewed more houses with us than I can count. She negotiated brilliantly on our behalf (both selling and buying). She even helped us move in! Heidi legitimately feels like family. She worked her tail off for us! She was available for alllllll of our questions at all hours of the day (even still!). Heidi fought for us through the whole process and made us laugh at every step! I would recommend her to anyone and everyone!

Michelle Moore

Joanna is extremely friendly, insightful, and helpful throughout the entire process.

She helped my wife and I purchase our dream property, and significantly under asking price! She was also there to answer any and all questions we had, and knew the ins and outs of the contract process, which helped us out hugely! She doesn't miss a detail. Joanna is an honest and fair, non-pushy realtor that is there to get YOU the best deal possible, and not lead you on or waste your time in selling your house or finding your dream home. I would 100% recommend her to anyone looking to buy a new home or sell their current one.

Max M

We just bought a vacation home in Lake Country B.

. Joanna was amazing from the very beginning to the last. We started our home search about two years ago, but the search got a lot easier ever since we met Joanna in April 2015. She had been very patient and helpful, and we felt that she really cared about us getting the right home rather than making her sale. She is just very sincere and honest person, professional and personable.

Agniezka P

We were very happy with the service Joanna provided for us, she gave excellent advice which lead to a fast sale.

We were working with a difficult listing as we were selling a rental property and she had to work around our tenants & their schedule, she did this very effectively and they were very happy with how she treated them. We plan to work with Joanna again in the future and we recommend her to our friends & family.

Katie K

This is the second home Heidi has helped us buy.

She is amazing and very personable and professional. I refer Heidi friends and family. Will use her again in near future. By far the best realtor I’ve hired

Huong Lu

I have to say this is was an experience that far exceeded my expectations.

I was battling an illness and both Joanna and Heidi went above and beyond in helping prepare my property, doing what needed to be done to make sure I got top dollar. These two make a great team and are full of heart, compassion, and realty know how. I trust them completely. I've sold two other properties with Realtors and none have compared as highly.

Rebecca L

Heidi was fantastic to deal with.

She found us the perfect home we were looking for. She was knowledgeable about the neighbourhood and was able to provide us with very valuable information all around. We enjoyed her enthusiasm and outgoing personality. We will be referring all of our friends and family looking to buy or sell to Heidi.

Hoa Lu

It was a pleasure working with `Heidi with the sale of one home and the purchase of another.

`Heidi was very professional and went above and beyond to help us through all this. She really cares about her clients and makes sure that everything works for you. She definitely made this process go more smoothly and did her utmost to make us as comfortable as possible selling our home. She was always reachable with any questions we had no matter how little or trivial they were. I highly recommend Heidi.This is why I chose Heidi to sell my home that my son and I both owned. Again she went above and beyond! Always reachable for any questions we had with the sale of this home. Our home was only on the market for 4 days, received an offer and accepted the offer.

Barb Lavoie

Joanna has been a god send for my wife and I.

We were basically absentee buyers as we were in Arizona for the winter and also affected by the Covid 19 issues. We placed a great deal of trust in her and we were rewarded with the perfect home for us. We had been working with Joanna for over a year as we transitioned from Kelowna to Arbutus Ridge on the Island. She was a wonderful asset for us in assessing our needs in purchasing a home and linking that to a home in the Arbutus Ridge community. We had so much faith in her that we bought the home with only her recommendation and a skype walk through of the house. We had never actually set foot in our new home prior to purchase and relied on Joanna's evaluation of our needs and matching that up with the new place. She was spot on and we now have a beautiful new home. I would highly recommend her. Joanna listens, gave great feedback, carefully evaluated our needs and was able to give us excellent recommendations for our purchase. She was also a great reference for us in getting to know the community as she lives in the area. Not many realtors I know have actually come in and helped in the clean up of our new home... Joanna was there for us every step of the way. Not only is she a good realtor... she is a great person as well.

Linda and Bill P

Our experience with Heidi was amazing.

She did an amazing job on selling our house and found us our new family home. Made us feel like we were her priority every time we talked with her...

Krista Janssen

I recently had the distinct pleasure of having Joanna as my Real Estate Agent.

Joanna sold my house in five days and for a price not heard of in my neighbourhood - she is skilled, perceptive, thorough, and so personable. Joanna subscribes to the low pressure mindset which is exactly what I was looking for, she listened, asked the right questions, and tolerated my neurosis and frequent requests. With Joanna's help I found my dream house the day after we accepted the offer on my house and there's no looking back now! I highly recommend this Agent especially if you want someone who takes the time to listen, asks the right questions, gets to know you and what you're looking for - with no personal or professional agenda. Joanna is more than an Agent now, she feels like a friend. Believe me - you will NOT be disappointed.

Launa M

Joanna has been so good throughout the whole purchase process.

We will definitely use her for our next home.

Amanda L

Joanna made homebuying a great experience.

I ask a LOT of questions and if she didn't have the answer she would quickly find it. She was very candid about the benefits and flaws of the properties we looked at. She took the time to understand what was important to me to have in a home and I felt she was always looking out for my best interests.

Katie R

Heidi, I want to thank you for all your help these past few months.

Your hard work did not go unnoticed with selling my home and then finding my new home in this crazy market and you did it all so seamlessly and always with a smile. I couldn’t be more grateful or excited about this next step in my journey. I couldn't have done it without you by my side. Thank you again for all your hard work, care, patience and friendship along the way. It is so appreciated! Sincerely, Diana

Diana Hamster

Heidi is an exceptional real estate professional.

She ensured that we were supported throughout the whole process of selling our house. She went above and beyond to address all of our needs from preparing the house for sell, the sale itself to supporting our move. She did an amazing job marketing our house, putting together a terrific package to show case our home in the best way possible. She also used her professional network very effectively resulting in interest in our home before it was on the market. The result is that we sold quickly and over list price. She managed the negotiation process very well. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to buy or sell your home. Her passion to do her best for you comes through loud and clear.

Monica Tolson

I am so glad I contacted Joanna to find a place for my mom and I in the summer of 2020.

She is a great listener and was able to find us the perfect home, in an area I hadn’t even previously considered. I never felt any pressure or stress from her – something I experienced with a previous realtor. Joanna also sold my condo in Saanich for me and made the whole process absolutely seamless. She kept me up to date on the opinions/thoughts of viewers and was down-to-earth, yet enthusiastic every step of the way. I would recommend Joanna to any friends and family looking for a realtor on southern Vancouver Island!

Tia A

Even on opposite sides of a transaction, I found Heidi to be very professional, prompt with communication, knowledgeable, and courteous.

Something that I don't often experience. She was a great negotiator, and a problem solver. Thanks Heidi!

Drew k

Joanna made homebuying a great experience.

I ask a LOT of questions and if she didn't have the answer she would quickly find it. She was very candid about the benefits and flaws of the properties we looked at. She took the time to understand what was important to me to have in a home and I felt she was always looking out for my best interests.

Justin S

I count myself very lucky to have met and worked with Heidi when I was in Victoria.

She was introduced by a friend who recommended her highly. She was so friendly and was willing and able to answer any questions I had for her. And I had lots of questions, because I knew nothing about real estate. She and Joanna made it very easy. They sold the property very quickly, and it was over before I knew it. Heidi also became a good friend...going that extra mile, and she was there when I needed to talk...about anything. She helped me with more than just selling the property and never made me feel she didn't have time. Heidi and Joanna even took me out for a fantastic meal to celebrate the sale and to say farewell as I was leaving the country. It was a special gesture from two special people I will never forget.

Cristina Calzada

Heidi is by far one of the top Realtors I have had the pleasure of working with.

Her attention to detail, exceptional customer service, and willingness to always go above and beyond makes her stand out in this industry. I would genuinely recommend her as a first call to anyone who is considering buying or selling in the Victoria market.

James James

I would highly recommend Joanna Manning for your next real estate purchase or sale!

She is a very knowledge realtor and we really liked getting our Monday morning updates regarding our property.

Pat J

Joanna was the perfect real estate agent for me.

Being a good listener, she understood what my situation was and what I was looking for. I felt she really had my interests at heart and made excellent suggestions about locations for my new home. Her cheerful personality and positive outlook made searching for the right place a great adventure. Her solid knowledge of the Mill Bay/Cobble Hill/Shawnigan Lake area and the market at the time – summer of 2020 - brought me a feeling of confidence that I could trust this woman. I found Joanna to be an honest, organized, intelligent, and dependable person who made everything fall into place. She was there for me. I highly recommend Joanna Manning, real estate agent extraordinaire!

Sue A

My Fiancée and I had the pleasure of working with Joanna to find our dream home.

We interviewed many realtors before choosing Joanna to represent us in the biggest purchase we would make in our lives. Talking with her we immediately were set at ease realizing that she had our best interest in mind rather than just going for the sale. Joanna is very professional, knowledgeable and personable, building relationships with her clients built on honesty and mutual respect. Everyone who knows real-estate can tell you the stresses involved. During the stressful times Joanna was like a cheerleader in our court helping to raise our spirits and guiding us through the stressful times, keeping her sights on our dreams and goals. Joanna is one of those rare people that you do business with and end up feeling like you have gained a great friend in the process. I will be recommending Joanna to anyone that I hear is looking to sell or purchase property.

Logan H

Joanna is a ray of sunshine.

I met Joanna first via phone 6 months ago when retiring and exploring moving to Vancouver Island from the lower mainland. I had been using the Pemberton website to watch the market in the Greater Victoria area and Joanna had called to offer her services to assist me with questions regarding neighbourhoods, amenities offered and also set up a custom search to meet my all my needs and wants in a new home. She applied no pressure which was very important to me but kindly offered to have us come for a visit and chauffeur us around the neighbourhoods to see which areas resonated with us. She prepped ahead of our visit sending me suggested listings she would arrange us to view if we approved. In all we were out for an entire afternoon, saw 7 homes, really got a feel for where we wanted to be based on Joanna’s local knowledge coupled with what she knew was important to us. Over the next couple of months once our home sold there were a number of calls and visits, and we only loved one home which had an accepted offer. Joanna used her negotiating skills and we were able to enter into a contract to build almost the same home on another lot but with a few changes to make it exactly what we wanted. Through it all she was the consummate professional but most of all her caring, warmth and humour shone through making this planning for the future such a wonderful experience. I now consider her a friend of the family and highly recommend her.

Janice D

Heidi was great!

Highly recommend her!

Shannon G.

Heidi helped our family get into the perfect home.

She provided us with many options and information that it made the whole process very easy. She was very comfortable to work with and I highly recommend her as a realtor for anyone looking for a home.

Ken Phan

We chose Joanna right away with first phone call appointment.

She said ‘ we should not rush to buy a home. You should pick the one which you like’. Other realtors were not like that at all. Because of my husband’s work, she could take an appointment for in the late afternoon to look at the house. And she was so fast to contact to the other agency and we could do viewing the day 1 or 2 on the market all the time. And when we found a forever home, I was really not sure because of too many viewing , and buying a house is stressful but I didn’t have any complains. And she told me that ‘ you like it! ‘ she is very supportive as a realtor and human. We love our forever home. Unfortunately seller was not nice so Joanna was very supportive with us. Thank you very much. You are the best realtor in Victoria!:)

Aina Y

From our first meeting we loved Heidi Steig and Joanna Manning’s knowledge and enthusiasm.

They marketed our home effectively in a tough market, always keeping us informed and regularly checking in to answer questions and offer encouragement.

Steve Enz

I have sold over 6 houses and used several Realtor's buying and selling.

Heidi blew ALL of them out of the water. She was friendly, helpful, extremely knowledgeable about all real estate regulations and able to impart this information in layman terms. Heidi was able to provide us with a great list of referrals that cover everything to do with buying and selling a house! She even arranged for someone to come by and haul away my 13 years of stuff "I might use". I can't say enough good about Heidi, she was an absolute delight to work with
