Newport Realty
REALTOR®, Victoria, BC


We highly recommend Fred Hiigli as a realtor and just all round great guy. He is conscientious and efficient and truly has his clients’ best interests at heart. Fred’s low key persona is the antithesis of the pushy salesperson yet he is very effective on the job. We found his style refreshing, easy and reassuring. In addition, Fred’s background in carpentry and construction is invaluable in assessing a potential home purchase. Another of Fred’s assets is his superior attention to detail. Having worked with Fred now in the purchase and sale of one home, and purchase of our second home, we’re happy we have a good realtor upon whom we can depend.

We have worked with Fred three times in the last few years, both buying and selling houses and recommend him to all our friends. It is wonderful to have a realtor to work with who we are sure is totally on our side and has our satisfaction as his top priority. Fred is of the highest integrity, and we never have to wonder about his motives in any discussion and can trust his advice. He is knowledgeable and experienced, so we know we are being well served. He keeps us informed and up to date with everything that is relevant to our situation; we never have to chase him down to find out what's going on. And we always feel that he has understood what we really need and who we are and doesn't waste our time trying to show us things we would never want. And if that isn't enough, he is very fun to look at houses with!

New to the Island we, nevertheless, had our ideas on the right neighborhoods for us. Fred followed our brief and spent 6 months patiently taking us to homes and offering advice. Then one day, Fred called and said something's come up that I think you might like. It wasn't in any of the neighborhoods we thought were right, but the house Fred showed us was just right, perfectly right. Now we know, so is the neighborhood. This was September 2002, a seller's market. Fred got us our perfect house for $10,000 less than asking. Fred is knowledgeable, honest and very professional, with a refreshing low-pressure style. We recommend him highly.

We just wanted to drop you a note to let you know how much we appreciated all the help and care you gave us with the sale and purchase of our homes. We are so happy that, with your expertise, in this unique real estate market we were able to purchase again, instead of renting as we had planned. We would not hesitate to recommend your services in the future.
