My husband, Andrew, and I decided to sell our house through Karen and Chuck Bennett in the summer of 2016. From the outset, Karen and Chuck were thorough, committed, organized and eager. Each recommendation made by Karen and Chuck came with thorough research and thought. They were excellent at communicating with us and kept us in the loop as interest in our home grew. Karen and Chuck utilized current technology to advertise in the newspaper, on their webpage and on Facebook. It seemed that everywhere we looked, we saw pictures and highlights of our home! We had an accepted offer within two months of listing our home and we closed in four months. Karen and Chuck’s fantastic communication skills, thorough work ethic and energetic personalities confirmed to us that we made the right decision in choosing them. We completely trusted their knowledge and knew that they had our best interests at heart. We highly recommend Karen and Chuck if you are thinking of buying a home or selling your current home!

It was time to sell the family home that my parents had purchased in 1963. They raised 5 children in that home and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren ran up and down the hallways over the years. Because my parents were elderly, I wanted to find someone to represent their home with integrity and understanding. Both Chuck and Karen were very honest, respectful and sympathetic to the specific wants and needs required to sell the family home and work with elderly clients. They helped my parents find their next home, did not push nor rush them in the search and in turn listed the family home to sell. It was difficult to get my parents out of the house for viewings so we worked out a limited schedule that worked with my parents and put the least amount of stress on them. The house sold in a matter of days! A difficult and stressful life change was managed professionally, respectfully and compassionately by the Bennetts. They always had my parent’s best interests in mind and communicated clearly so there was no confusion. I highly recommend Chuck and Karen Bennett if you are either looking for your new home or wanting to sell your current home.
Karen and Chuck exceeded my expectations for Realtors. As a first time homebuyer, they helped me navigate the entire process from start to finish. I cannot thank them enough. They worked with my short timeline and were able to find a beautiful home which ticked all my boxes within my budget! I felt I had their complete focus and they responded extremely quickly from the beginning. I would absolutely recommend Karen and Chuck. I appreciate their dedication, thoroughness, knowledge and honestly. I was able to trust them and their support in viewing homes and going through the entire process. If you want to find your dream home, go with them!

Our New Home in the Kootenays
In September 2016, we decided to relocate to Nelson to be closer to aging family members. One call to this amazing team had us in their office within hours and they were compiling a list of our needs and wants. The next day we were taken to many all the properties we wanted to see as well as some they thought would suit us. As we were not expecting to relocate until the Spring of 2017, they just kept us in the loop of the listings and checked in with us over the next few months.
I was relocated through my work a few months before expected and arrived in Nelson in late November. My partner was to come for Christmas. Chuck and Karen understood all of our special circumstances and took us under their wings. They helped us find the perfect home and actually did this through video chat with my partner still in Vancouver. By the time she arrived, all she had to do was hug and thank our amazing realtors.
Chuck and Karen have gone above and beyond in teaching these two first time home owners how to secure a listing and take it through to the handing over of the keys. They were always available and answered emails and calls within the hour. They took over most of the arrangements and always looked out for our best interest, making sure we understood all of the processes and alternatives.
I will never forget the night they met us at our favorite place, and handed over the keys to our new home. This is the most amazing feeling in the world. They walked us to our new door and made sure we understood how everything worked. We took pictures of the four of us in our new kitchen.
I cannot say enough about this amazing team of home finders. If you are reading this, do not look any further. You have found your Realtors. Welcome Home.
Two very happy Nelson home owners!

My wife and I have known Chuck and Karen for many years because of their so many involvements in community activities. The Bennett’s have always been so supportive, professional and hard-working no matter what the situation. When I was their son’s hockey coach they were first to help volunteer and keep things organized for the kids. Very dedicated to family. Chuck and Karen both display strong mentor and leadership skills with their involvement with Nelson Youth Soccer. They work tirelessly on so many community events for the Chamber of Commerce and local and national fundraising events. So when it came time that my wife and I had to make a move from Nelson and sell our home we knew Karen and Chuck would be a great fit for us. They even exceeded our expectations and made this very emotional decision much easier. The stress that usually comes with selling your home was taken away.
Karen and Chuck were new to real estate when we sold our home but their professionalism and dedication to making sure we were looked after came through. The Bennett’s are hard-working, professional, caring, and a family first oriented team that can’t help but look after their clients and friends.
