What our clients are saying?

    Hi Dawn,


    It was a pleasure to work with you. I wish every agent was as professional and respectful as you have been – thank you so much!





    Wendy Lover Royal Lepage Port Alberni


    Dawn, You were great on the last two moves, but on this one, you were amazing on all counts  (sale prep, marketing, strategy, pricing decisions, negotiating,  closing the deal at both ends, patience, sage counsel, flexibility, the list goes on and on! 

    We couldn't have picked a better agent to help us with this very important process and decision.    We have "talked you up" in the complex and will continue to do so in the community. 

    Also a big thank you to Lawrence and your whole support team who have been excellent (knowledgeable, dependable and cheerfully accommodating throughout the whole process).  

    Big hugs!    John & Meg

  • Dear Dawn,
    Seeing your lovely face on "For Sale Signs" around town, reminds me that I have long wanted to write a Thank-you note to you to acknowledge, and in appreciation of your thoughtfulness and always - good advice. We have really appreciated not only your support on housing issues of buying and selling, but also your ready recommendations for people to help with home repairs. We feel you are a person who truly cares and are so grateful to have found you. You are a truly good friend to us and your upbeat, positive attitude is an inspiration. Thank you for being there for us.

  • Dear Dawn,
    THANK YOU to all of the SETTER Team for opening the door to my "little piece of heaven" in Qualicum Beach. You all made the opening of that door such an easy and stress free process. You think of everything. Your belief, and always positive encouragement and energy, supported the Universe to make this all happen. I love my new home and still have to pinch myself to make sure this all real.
             THANK YOU for all:
    - the thoughtul gifts, phone calls, cards, including the new home announcement cards (and even the stamps too);
    - sharing all of your contacts (from the movers to the lawyers), who were all great to work with;
    - the Insurance Policy;
    - my new dining room table and chairs, which are perfect for my room - and delivered even!;
    - the garden geese who are happily settling into my fabulous, private, beautifully green deck - with bamboo blowing in the breeze - I love it;
    - and, mostly for all the encouragement, kindnesses and friendship.
    Your generosity is, overwhelming and greatly appreciated. The joy you both obviously feel for "work" (your passion obviously) is contagious and makes me joyful too. You truly do MAKE DREAMS COME TRUE. I look forward to having you over when I return from Alberta!
    Love from Pat Sears

  • This is an introduction to our friend Dawn Setter (RE/MAX Realty). She is the one who took the time (and great care) to help us find a house to suit our needs. We know you will thoroughly enjoy meeting her - not only is she very knowledgeable about the area (some realtors who haven't lived here for a lenght of time don't know the history of the area and can't advise you about the advantages or disadvantages of certain areas), plus she is a hoot! (her sense of humour is great). She is the sort of person you can be "right up front" with - and you will find her to be most honest. She has shown many of our friends homes in the area knowing that at first they just want to get an idea of what they can get for the amount they want to spend - and she will not "pressure" you in any way.

    We know you enjoy meeting one another.

How much is my house worth?
Your home might be worth more than you think...

Let's find a home, just for you.
