Alex and Shandal Beaudry

Wow! You are amazing. Glad Mom set us up with you. This has been such a pleasure. I was anticipating hell when we wanted to start looking, but you made this whole process a joy! Thank you!

Charlotte and Warren

Jim is an exceptional realtor. He works with a professional manner at all times, while at the same time is very enjoyable to be around…. We feel that he was consistently working for our best interest, discussing with us all of the potential outcomes, both positive and negative, in order that we might be prepared for any change of events. This proved to be very effective in preventing unwanted stress, as there were never any surprises during the entire process.

Dave and Stephanie

We appreciate all your good advice on what we figured was a hard sell, plus you found what we wanted, and made the sell and move work so there were no hotel nights. Wow! A first for us. Thanks again Jim.

Mark and Richard

Jim seemed to know what we wanted, and the rest was very easy. When viewing homes, we appreciated the space he gave us to get the feel of the place. The whole process was very calm and comfortable, and we will call Jim next time around. We love the house and the price was right.

Sarah and Richard

Jim, thank you so much for all your help and hard work in finding our home for us. We love it! Thank you.

Carla and Garry

Jim, we know it took a lot – and you made it happen. Thank you for all your diligence and persistence over this property. We are grateful to have that completed in our lives.

Allan and Mary Ann

Just a short note to say thanks again for your professional and personable approach to assisting us in our real estate transactions. You made a potentially stressful situation much easier to deal with, and we feel we received sound advice and excellent value in all our transactions. Thanks again, and please feel free to share this note with your co-workers, and any potential new clients. We highly recommend you as a realtor.


Please accept our great appreciation for your role in the successful sale of our house at . . . Hammond Bay Road. Your ability to see and promote the special values of our property and its location did much, we’re sure, to attract the unique buyer that the house deserved…. We still think that you are the best thing that ever happened to the business of real estate in Nanaimo.

Dennis and Sheila

As newcomers to the Island we were very fortunate to have had Jim for our Realtor. He was there before, during, and after to offer guidance and advice in all aspects, not just with the purchase of our new home. We would recommend his service to anyone. Thanks again Jim.


Jim, your gift of humour, real estate knowledge and exquisite interpersonal skills is a joy for all of those who do business with you.

Scott and Cathy

Our Realtor, Mr. Jim Ballard, clearly brings a high level of professionalism to his vocation. Jim was both knowledgeable and enthusiastic about selling our home. He explained things thoroughly and always did what he said – when he said!

Doug and Audrey

To have received an excellent offer on our home within 10 days of it being put up for sale was a small miracle! We both feel that your excellent presentation folder, as well as your descriptive newspaper ads, had a lot to do with the flood of prospective buyers and quick sale…. Also, we want to express our appreciation for the way in which you looked after all the many ‘minor’ details even after our move – indeed you went above and beyond what might have been expected of a realtor. We would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone – indeed we have already done so. Many thanks once again.

Janet and Gordon

Jim early in the year when we decided to sell our rental properties in Parksville and Nanaimo one thing of which we were both confident was that in Jim Ballard we were in the hands of a professional realtor. We bought both the homes through you, and there was no hesitation in asking you to sell them for us. We noticed particularly the extra important things that you did to quickly get our houses the maximum exposure – using all the latest techniques that were available to you. You were pretty good when you sold them to us, over the ten years between then and now, you’ve certainly not stood still.
