Gay and Anthea came to us highly recommended from a client for whom they had just recently sold a property.
We were looking for a realtor whose strength was in sales and also one who didn’t take on too many clients at one time.
Gay and Anthea met with us and assured us that they preferred to give more focus on the properties that they had already listed in order to move them quickly and profitably.
They were honest, reliable and understanding of our situation. At our request, they attended all viewings as we felt they knew our property’s features the best. They also brought forth many of their own qualified clients. They assured us they would work hard for the sale of our home and be relentless in attaining a sale for us at a fair market value, and the price of sale actually turned out to be $30,000 over our listing price.
We trusted and respected their efforts and they completed this in just 6 weeks. Anthea was in her last trimester and even gave birth while working for us, but she continued to show our home almost until the date of her delivery. Gay continued on by herself, attending showings and completing the final sale, proving to us she truly was relentless.
With Gay’s years of experience and knowledge in Real Estate and her people skills, plus Anthea’s love of communication and technical knowledge, they are a force to be reckoned with.
It was a very enjoyable experience working with them and we wish them all the best in their new business venture as a Realtor Sales Team for Remax.”

We were overwhelmed with the performance and caring we received from this professional real estate team. Through their expertise and drive, we were able to sell our property quickly and over the asking price. They didn’t just put the house on MLS and wait. Instead, they worked with us to put a plan together to identify the most important information to share, listened to our comments about why people would like to live there, and brought in stagers so those that view could see how this house could become their home.

We had initially contracted another relator, but quickly realized his recommendations and expertise started and ended with “maybe you should lower the price”.   It was wonderful to see how things changed when Gay and Anthea took over. The new information and pictures with the new staging went on line on Thursday and just three days later there were three offers on the table!

During the selling process, we were always consulted about decisions; we were asked many questions about the house and always kept updated. I don’t think any relator could do a better job! Having the right team sell our home made all the difference to us & it can make the difference to you too! Thank you both!

In late June of this year we listed our Dean Park home with Gay and Anthea Helmsing of Remax Camosun Peninsula Realty.

Both Gay and Anthea showed a professional and optimistic attitude towards our property on their initial visit. Gay stated “this house will sell in a week” and she was right. We received two offers of purchase one of which we accepted. During the week of showings Anthea kept us apprised of feedback from realtors which we appreciated.

Our overall experience with Gay and Anthea was very positive and rewarding.

Thanks to both of you.

Gay has been our Realtor for four of our property transactions over the past number of years. In all of our dealings we have found Gay to be the knowledgeable and consummate professional and in every sense put us at ease. If Gay should be your Real Estate Agent, you will be most fortunate because you will find her to be the very best and you will not be disappointed.

The Victoria market was an alarming place to shop for a home after years on the prairies. Fortunately, Gay helped us to acclimatize quickly and reassured us that our purchase was a wise investment and a good choice for our needs. We are happy that we put our trust in her!

We were very fortunate to have Gay as our Agent when it came time to sell my Mother’s home. She was sensitive, caring and professional in every way. We could not have had anyone better. Gay puts her clients’ needs ahead of all else.

We were provided with Gay’s name from two friends, who highly recommended her for the excellent service she had provided them. When we flew in from Ottawa to work with Gay, she had already prepared a list of potential properties that met our requirements. We were most impressed by her professional approach and hard work. We felt that Gay really responded to our needs and focussed her efforts in getting the right property. We did complete a sale with her assistance right down to helping us contact a lawyer and a mortgage broker….first class service all the way.

Gay Helmsing has been our agent in the last year for the sale of our former residence and the purchase of our new home, both in Sidney, BC. Gay worked extremely hard in contacting clients from out of province, preparing our sales brochure, and advertising and in arranging open houses every weekend and brought us three offers in a short time to enable us to complete the sale to our satisfaction. Gay also acted for us in contacting the representative and former owner of our new home in order to negotiate a satisfactory closing and timeline for its purchase. From time to time we have referred friends and family to Gay and they have advised us of their appreciation of her services. Gay’s knowledge of the housing market, and her experience with other realtors, home inspection services, contractors, designers, lawyers, and financing options will well serve her clients. We have no hesitation in recommending Gay Helmsing as your Realtor.
