The Real Estate Process

Buying or selling your home - this is an inside look at what these pros do for you - real estate agent - lawyer - home inspector - home stager.

Find out how this experienced real estate agent works for you. Get the real story on Open Houses - are there any risks? Could it be the dinosaur of real estate? You go to sign legal documents and don't always ask all the questions. This lawyer clearly spells out each step that is taken to protect you in the sale or purchase of your home. You are advised to have a home inspection. Perhaps your Uncle Fred can take a look at the house? Think again after you hear from this professional home inspector. You are placing your home on the market. Does it look its best? This home stager will give you an idea of how a simple consultation or a staging can get you a faster sale and often a higher price.

With the information they have provided, these four pros empower the consumer when buying or selling a home.


"The Real Estate Process is written by Vi Brown, a real estate agent who has teamed with a lawyer, a home inspector and home stager to co-author a book that helps demystify the process of buying or selling a home. The advice given can apply to real estate purchasers across Canada. The book is not meant to be encyclopedic in scope, but it covers enough ground for people to be empowered. It gives both buyers and sellers a road map of the process so that they know who to go to and what questions to ask."
- Pedro Arrais, Times Colonist Newspaper

"You'll find this to be a most thorough and comprehensive guide for new and not-so-new home Buyers and Sellers. Vi Brown is an experienced, knowledgeable and successful licensed REALTOR®, who along with other professional associates, explains in clear language the steps and service you should expect from your real estate professional and other real estate oriented services that will make your move a smooth endeavour."
- Susan K. Dunn, Managing Broker, DFH Real Estate Ltd., Victoria, BC

"I've worked with Vi Brown and have seen her real estate process in action -- her clients are her top priority. She also works with other experienced professionals to ensure everything in the process moves smoothly. I like the unconventional bios because it adds some personality to a somewhat dry topic -- a fun read for a real estate book!"
- Ione Longmore, Past Client, Victoria, BC
