I'm from Alberta and recently bought two homes in Victoria. Fred Carver was so professional right from the choices of homes he chose to view throughout the entire process. He educated me on features of the city, the neighborhoods, and activities. Fred has a warm and friendly manner and can answer any questions presented to him. We completed the two transactions mostly by email & phone and the whole experience couldn't have been made more to my convenience. L. Walker
“Buying or selling a home can be very stressful. You want to have a good Real Estate Agent that understands your needs and is always available. In Victoria that agent is Fred Carver. If I had to pick 2 words to describe him, they would be "Fred Cares". He is experienced and knowledgeable in the industry and you can be confident in his ability to cover all aspects of a purchase or a sale.
Doing business with Fred has been a pleasure.” Teresa, K
"I was impressed with how carefully you listened to my needs and wants; and then responded with a list of homes that most nearly met my needs. It was a pleasure dealing with you; and I highly recommend you to anyone whose in the market for a new home.” John Beatty
My husband & I had the pleasure of meeting Fred when we hired him to sell our house. We have had many Realtors over the years, but Fred Carver was the best. He was very professional & friendly. He kept in close contact with us, which we found very satisfying. He worked very hard for us & as a result our home was sold within a month. We had been trying to sell it for 2 years, so it was our good fortune to have Fred for our Realtor. We would recommend him to anyone who wants to sell their home fast & with courteous professionalism.
Sincerely, Charles & Millicent Buckley
Fred brought several positive characteristics to the table when selling our Condo:
1. He was very familiar with the building, as he had been involved with the development of the land, and had sold some units in the past,
2. He lived nearby and was able to show the Condo at short notice,
3. He was able to recommend a competent man to do some rennovations and painting on short notice,
4. He was also able to obtain a plumber instantly, an extraordinary feat,
5. He was personable, friendly, competent and persuasive when dealing with a difficult purchaser! Allan & Julia
The beginnings of the sale of our home went smooth, quick and easy with Fred bringing through just the right purchaser after a careful inspection of our home. In our busy lives today, it's nice to have a realtor who pre-approves the right clients for the home. Just one visit and both parties were content with a fair sale . When a few timeline changes came up unexpectedly, Fred worked quickly to come up with adjustments that would suit both parties. We spell relieve "Fred Carver" Thanks , The Tuit's
I want to thank you for being so great to deal with in the listing and sale of my home. Your enthusiasm and expertise in handing all the details instilled in me the confidence that I was being very well looked after and had someone in my corner who was well experienced and respected. This enabled me to feel at peace with listing my home at this time and I am very happy with the outcome.
Even our building manager was very impressed with you.
I highly recommend you to anyone wishing to buy or sell knowing they were getting the best realtor they could possibly get!!

By all accounts we are difficult clients. We think we know what we
want, but ultimately since our decision is based on 'instinct' we
tend to be all over the map when it comes to house hunting. Normally
we would go through months and months of open houses before actively
involving a realtor in our madcap ways, but because we were from out
of town, it was necessary to secure one at the beginning. Enter
Fred. With the patience that can only be learned from years of
experience, he indulged our requests to see homes that (he knew even
before we looked at them) would most likely be a 'no' before we
walked through the door.
Having been born and raised in Victoria he knew every corner of the
city but perhaps what we appreciated the most, was his willingness to
tell us when a home was overpriced.
Curiously when we found the 'right' property - we both knew it
instantly, but we hesitated. Perhaps it was living at a distance -
hard to say. Fred seemed to know before we did. By the time we had
visited the home for the third time, (and countless times online) as
we drove away, it hit us. This was our 'home'. Fred put the
paperwork together, negotiated the best deal possible, crossed the
't's' and dotted the 'i's' and we are now the proud owners of a
Fred was very easy to spend time with, professional and
knowledgeable. He is also very good with children and by the time
all was said and done our little one had decided that she 'loved'
Fred. We truly enjoyed our house hunting experience and would highly
Best regards, Marlene & Phillip
Thank you once again, Fred. We are very pleased with how this sale proceeded, and it's outcome. It was accomplished in less than two weeks, more like ten days. You gave our place wonderful exposure, exhibited a very professional attitude, and showed great patience and understanding of the market, buyers, and the needs of your sellers, us. Beth and Jim
