What clients are saying...


Your help along every step of the way made a big difference.  The experience and guidance through the full process helped us accomplish our goals with great results. You facilitated...

  • doing some preliminary house viewings to help Joe understand what was available and possible in the market and what he liked and didn't like
  • reviewing our family home to give us tips on how to prepare for a listing
  • getting to listing with some preliminary interest - documenting it carefully
  • listing and managing visits
  • as it turns out - being flexible and enabling the very first viewing to happen despite short notice was the match!
  • Then advice and guidance through the negotiations for both the sale and purchase.
  • facilitating the short closing by tracking down documents and keeping us informed.

I will share our experience with anyone who needs professional help with buying or selling a home.

Thank you from our whole family!

Ginny was an excellent realtor to work with. She answered all our questions very thoroughly, gave great advice, and was very supportive throughout the whole process of selling our house.

- Jess and Kevin

Ginny is always upbeat and pleasant. When I was stressed as selling your home is a big deal she kept a cool head and calmed me. I highly recommend Ginny.

- Rose

We engaged Ginny to manage the sale of our property during a difficult market. Despite the market conditions and challenging fall season, Ginny negotiated and sold our property at a fair and market reflected price. One of the standout attributes of Ginny’s is her communication and follow through. Exceptionally professional and dedicated. We are very happy and impressed with her service.

- Marek

We thoroughly enjoyed working with Ginny. She is professional, personable and invested in what she does. Ginny took the time to get to know us and our goals in finding a home. And given that we currently live in Alberta, we depended even more heavily on her involvement in finding and assessing houses on our behalf. She kept a steady stream of prospective homes coming our way until we finally found the right one. Even though we made her work hard, she was always patient and responsive to our requests. Thank you so much, Ginny, we look forward to having a celebratory glass of wine on the deck!

Ginny is an outstanding realtor who brings together knowledge, professionalism, and efficiency. What sets her apart is her strong commitment to her clients, as seen in her hard work, time investment, and active efforts to help them achieve their real estate goals. As a mortgage broker I work closely with realtors, I can say with certainty that Ginny is truly one of the best in the business and would highly recommend her.

- Hannah

It was a pleasure to work with Ginny. Very helpful and informative, and she responded to my questions promptly and with great patience. I would definitely recommend her to anyone buying or selling.

- Joan

I am an older man who like things done a certain way, my point a view considered and things done. Ginny Mclean more that delievered on all acounts. She explains everything in depth sometimes a couple times just so things are clear. I would use her again and give her name to personal friends and family. She is outstanding! Thanks so much for making a dream of mine happen in a quick professional stressless manner!

- Dennis

Great. Would recommend..Ginny took the time to explain the process of buying/selling homes. She had went beyond what I believe is her job to help me get a new home. She is very quick is responding and also did a great job at assisting in finding a notary and mortgage broker. She did great work. Highly recommend.

- Richard

Ginny was extremely knowledgeable and came to each house we viewed with tons of information. She listed our townhouse for sale & the ad was beautifully done. She gave us so many tips on how to best sell our home. She will be highly suggested by me to others who are looking to buy or sell.

- Stephanie

I recently had the pleasure of working with Ginny as my realtor for the sale of my condo in Duncan. From the very beginning, Ginny impressed me with her professionalism and outstanding communication skills. She was always quick to respond to my questions and concerns, and made sure that I was informed and up-to-date throughout the entire process. One thing that really stood out to me about Ginny was her dedication to getting the job done right. She wasted no time in getting marketing photos taken and even went the extra mile to create a beautiful video showcasing not just the property, but also the surrounding neighbourhood. This attention to detail really paid off, as I believe it contributed to a quick sale and an overall great experience. Throughout the process, Ginny was patient, kind, and supportive. She listened carefully to my needs and made sure that I felt comfortable every step of the way. Her knowledge of the local real estate market was invaluable, and she was always willing to share her expertise and insights to help me make informed decisions. Overall, I would recommend Ginny to anyone looking for a reliable, professional, and dedicated realtor. She truly went above and beyond to help me sell my condo, and I couldn't be happier with the results. Thank you, Ginny, for all of your hard work and dedication!

From the first moment we met Ginny we knew she wasn't going to just find us a house, she was going to find us our home. Ginny delivered in every way. She is professional, she is knowledgeable, she is kind and patient and she listens. Ginny tailored our search to exactly what we were looking for, gave us honest opinions of the properties we viewed and helped us every step of the way. Whenever we needed Ginny she was there for us. Buying a home can be stressful but Ginny made it much easier and enjoyable. I highly recommend Ginny McLean.

- Kevin

I would like to thank your organization for working with me and my wife in the purchase of our new home. We worked with Ginny McLean, and she is a very professional person. She worked with us to understand our needs and then sent listings that met our parameters and needs. Once a listing that met our needs came up, she would work with us to allow us to view the listing. Upon viewing the listing, she could tell if it was something that would work. If it wasn’t she watched our reaction asked questions and adjusted the parameters to ensure we would find the perfect house. She took the time to get to know us. She was not there just to sell a house; she was there to help us find a home. It paid off, in the end we found the perfect house for us. We would recommend Ginny McLean and the McLean real estate group to anyone buying or selling a home.

- Robert and Penny

I have known Janice since 2009.  Several of my friends have worked successfully with her and I simply won't talk to anyone else until I see her first. No nonsense, serious experience in this region/area, extremely hard-working but never panicky; that's the kind of confidence I want, especially in the markets we face these days. And furthermore, she's just a cool lady to be around. So. No problem recommending Janice McLean to anyone.

- Lise

We absolutely loved our realtor, Ginny, she was knowledgeable, experienced, punctual, open and friendly, she took the time to understand our requirements in a house and was able to guide us through the process. We spent a good few Saturdays with Ginny looking at several houses. The planning was spot on, enough time between the houses and well prepared with all the details for our questions. I would recommend Ginny to everyone. We found an amazing house only with the help of Ginny. THANK YOU.

- Peter

Hello! I am providing some well deserved feedback for the work provided by Ginny McLean. After having gone through 3 other real estate agents help, or dare I say lack of it, I stumbled onto Ginny. Ginny has been relentless in trying to find me a place to call home. There were times when we were so disappointed and feeling defeated that I wasn't sure it would ever happen, but Ginny never gave up and always kept me hopeful and motivated. Today I am happy to say that I have just purchased a place that I can call home! Thank you Ginny for all you have done for me and for being the outgoing and best agent I know!

- Catherine

We have had the opportunity to work with Janice a few times and have always been very impressed. Recently when we asked her to sell our house for us we had the opportunity to also work with Ginny. What a great team! The attention to detail and the guidance through this process was again amazing. Thank you Janice and Ginny for all your help.

- A

Janice is extremely knowledgable and very responsive. I would highly recommend her! Great Realtor!

- Shelley

Had a great experience. Very knowledgeable, helped me throughout the whole process. Made my first purchase very simple and smooth.

- Deep

Janice, we want to thank you for all your help the past few months to sell our Milll Bay property. You were the eyes and ears on the ground that we needed to get the transaction complete in a very swift and efficient manner. Thanks again!

- Joelle and Scott

This is the second time I have used Janice when selling a house. She is great to work with and has lots of knowledge about the housing market and gave us tips on staging the house that really paid off. Janice was prompt to return messages and had answers for every question that was asked. Thanks to both Janice and Ginny for what we thought to be an impossible deal, possible for us!!! I would highly recommend using their services.

- Heather

If you are looking for a professional and dedicated Realtor then Janice is who to call. She knows her stuff!! Thank you for helping us get our new home here in Ladysmith.

- Karen

Thank you for selling my house. Your advice on the renos/improvements to be done, the decorating and the landscaping were spot on. I appreciated that you negotiated the price with me and were patient sorting out what was possible in this market. I am grateful that you were always there for me with patience and good humour. Finally, congratulations on getting a perfect offer from the first person who walked through the door.

Wahoo. You did it.

- Suzanne

Those are 3 pretty cute kids in the paper. Thank you so much Janice for being so amazing and helping us sell our house so quickly and also finding our new forever home! Just a few more weeks and we will be there too! Without you, we would have been lost through this all! And we miss you! Thank you!If you are looking for a professional and dedicated Realtor then Janice is who to call. She knows her stuff!!

- Lacey and Adam

Thanks for being you. It is so nice to have someone as great as you to reply upon. I know what a big deal it is to buy a home, and an incredible feeling to buy your first home. As a parent, I want to be able to give wise advise on such a big purchase. It was so nice to be able to download any advice I wanted to give as a parent to a child buying a home, to you. You have helped both my daughters purchase their first homes and they have told me that the only advice they would need, would come from you. That takes great confidence and respect from me to be able to let go. Yet, you made it so easy. You are one of a kind. I am so very lucky to have you on our side. This is a really long winded way to say what I really wanted to say, which is, Thank you!

- Ray

What a whirlwind. First off, we never thought we would move again so soon. But we found our Dream House and couldn’t let it slip away. I’m really not sure how you did it but in a span of 1 month you got us out of our old house and into our dream home. You directed our list of must-do reno’s and we got to work. Then you helped us buy our dream house and navigate a conditional sale. Finally, once our reno’s were done you listed and sold our existing house within 3 days. 3 days! It was a stressful month to say the least but there is absolutely no way we could have done it all without you. You were there for us every step of the way; you quite literally made our dreams come true. We cannot thank you enough!

- Kendra

Thanks for all your patience and perseverance in selling our property. Everything was dealt with very promptly and efficiently. You succeeded where others failed! You did a great job.

- Pat

Thank you for your time, expertise and professionalism. We truly appreciate your efforts.

- Dan and Carolyn

I would like to thank you for your great advice. It was a pleasure to go through this whole process (even the stress) because of you. You are gifted with people and represent your clients with smarts and professionalism. I really enjoyed meeting you and will recommend your services to everyone seeking help in real estate.

- Sylvie

We want to thank you again, for helping us find our new home. We couldn’t have done it without you. Much appreciation and best regards.

- Anna and Murray

We couldn’t have done it without your great service.

- Dave and Pat

Thanks, Janice, for everything. We are both feeling really good and happy with our decision. I can’t wait to have you through the house in a few years when we are ready to list and buy again!! We loved working with you and would definitely recommend you.

- Kendra and Glen

Dear Janice,

We just wanted to say a big thanks for all the hard work you did on our behalf. This was a Big move for our family and we could not have done it so successfully without you. You seem to have perfected the delicate balance of aggression and compassion. We appreciate your big heart. A real estate transaction can easily be a cold and calculating deal but your warmth and spirit made it so much more than that. Again, thank you for your professionalism and your sensitivity.”


- Heather and Steve

Thank you so much for all your guidance as we prepared our property for sale. Your understanding of the local market as well as your knowledge of how to prepare our home for sale were instrumental in us receiving the amount we were anticipating. Thank you so much for all your help. We could not have done this without you!

- Neil and Tracey

Janice never tried to suggest settling or buying a property that wasn’t perfect for us.

Janice is a professional, courteous, and dedicated real estate agent. It has been a pleasure working with her, and would do so again without hesitation

- Mike and Christine Anderson

Ann and I decided to send you a little note saying how impressed we are with the MLS listing and especially the new pictures. They look nothing at all like the last pictures that were posted and they show the house in a much better light and we couldn’t be happier.

Our interaction with you has far exceeded our expectations and we only wish we had found our voice sooner since this has made the experience much less stressful and allowed us to breathe again.

Thanks again for all your hard work, we appreciate it and we would highly recommend you to anyone.

- Don and Ann

Bada-bing, bada-boom! You rock. Thank you soooo very much for helping our family!
