My wife and I were relocating to Victoria from Ontario and found Drew on the Web. After one and a half years of being driven around by him from house to house, we feel it was a very lucky find. Drew not only made himself available to us every time we flew in, but he answered all of our questions in a very timely way. He was extremely patient, always courteous and professional, as we tried to focus on the right kind of home for us. We highly recommend him, especially for people coming to Victoria from far away. We would certainly use his services again. Anyone could benefit from Drew’s patience as well as his ability to provide information and his educated opinion about the quality and pricing of a potential home. His experience in the construction industry is a big plus.

My husband and I were first time sellers. Drew came highly recommended to us through a friend and we have now highly recommended him to friends/family! Selling our home and then buying through him was very easy. He was always available answering the phone or emails promptly. Having him for our Realtor was like buying from a friend, he was honest, listened and was not pushy by any means.

We had a great opportunity come up but needed to act fast. Drew was able to make the deal happen by arranging timely viewings, give great advice and walk us through the fine legal details. His communication was first rate, returning all calls in a very timely manner. He was professional in all aspects of our house purchase. We would not hesitate to recommend him as a realtor.
~ Ron & Leanne
Drew was a patient, informed and responsive agent. His listening skills were well developed and we appreciated how he had the patience to let us form our own opinions rather than forming the conversation himself. When we had questions, he answered. When we needed to meet with him, he responded. No matter the uniqueness of our request or query, he was a gentleman. Ultimately, he was proactive in facilitating a deal between two of his own clients, one in Victoria and one in Cobble Hill, leaving both of us well satisfied. We would definitely recommend him and would use him again!

Drew was referred to me by a family friend. My friends had worked with Drew when purchasing their home in Fairfield. Drew was one of three realtors I met with when looking to sell my home and purchase a new home. I liked Drew immediately. He was confident but not pushy. Drew offered tips on home staging and had professional photos taken of our home. This paid off as we sold our home quickly. When searching for our new home Drew had a lot of good advice about the areas of the city that would work for us. Drew grew up in Victoria and seemed to have a wide knowledge about each of the areas in town and on the Peninsula. Negotiations on our home purchase went really well. Drew was able to assist us in getting a great deal. I will definitely be recommending Drew in the future!

Prior to contacting Drew, I did a personal inventory as to what I expected in a Real Estate individual; explored the internet to see what companies or agents were available on Vancouver Island & in the Duncan area. From my search, I found Drew Saville and set up a meeting with him when I visited the area two years ago. The end result was Drew matched the criteria I was looking for.
In my professional & personal estimation Drew is a unique individual in that he brings integration of his personal & professional life to his business. He is one that brings to the Real Estate business, integrity, courteousness, a quiet demeanor, excellent verbal and written skills. He is an intent listener, dedicated and follows through with his commitments. His Real Estate knowledge & the area he services and his high level of professionalism was demonstrated in the purchase of my property.
The purchase of property with Drew was in the Duncan area was handled from my home in Sudbury, Ontario. The transaction from beginning to end was seamless. He was patient in answering my questions and answered my phone calls, emails and faxes in a timely manner. When I flew to the area, Drew arranged several properties that met my criteria and arranged to pick me up & return me to my daughters’ residence.
Drew’s personal service was very much evident following the property purchase as well. He took the time to assist me with a list of area contractors I needed.
I was completely satisfied in all aspects with Drew’s services for my property. With such excellent service, I will definitely use him for all my Real Estate needs. I personally recommend Drew to handle your Real Estate requirements.
Our first experience with Drew was online through his real estate Website. His quick, courteous and knowledgeable response to our inquiries about the housing market on Vancouver Island quickly helped to build our trust and confidence in Drew's ability to meet our needs for a buying agent. Moving to the Island from out of province created some obvious problems, but from the time we arrived on the island to the signing of our purchase agreement on the perfect home, Drew's tireless efforts, kind, courteous and knowledgeable service made our entire experience stress free. I would not hesitate to use Drew's services again, and would highly recommend him to anybody looking for a real estate agent a cut above the rest.

I contacted Drew in August 2013 regarding one of his listings. He replied promptly. I was purchasing my first home and was nervous, but Drew made me feel comfortable. He was knowledgeable, polite, and helped me along the way with all the necessary steps. I would gladly select Drew as my realtor in the future and recommend him to family and friends.
I located Drew by accessing his website last October when I decided to move from up island to the Langford area of Victoria. Drew's easy-going manner made me feel confident in his knowledge of the market in my chosen area. He always had an answer to my many questions and located information that I requested. When I had settled on a condo Drew kept me apprised of negotiations and the progress made. He was always helpful in every way and followed through until I was safely in my new home. I gladly recommend him to others and would uses Drew's services again.
Drew had the basics covered from the get go- he arrived to meet me on time, well groomed and presenting in an easy manner with patience and professionalism galore. It was important to me that Drew listened to my needs exceptionally well.
At the onset I felt comfortable going out on the slim limb of explaining my delicate health situation, and while managing that confidential information, Drew was adept at discreetly lending a shoulder when necessary, narrowing down choices more aggressively as I honed in on what I wanted and diligently searching when I needed more than tailored listings arriving in my email. The drives to and from properties were used effectively to debrief on latest viewings as well as draw on his knowledge of other listings for contrast and comparison purposes. It became clear Drew knew the subject properties and their neighbourhoods very well as his testimonies reliably bore fruit time and time again. Eventually my need to view every potential listing gave way to the more sombre suggestion of the best three of current prospects at a time.
I have recommended Drew to others and will continue to do so, in part because of the special care he gave me but also because of his astute judgement and openness as we ventured through the listings and the properties. The ease at which he accommodated my well meaning support team in attendance was awesome as was his focus on my needs above all.
I now own the perfect rancher for my current situation with lots of fun projects underway that make it my custom home. I can't yet imagine moving away, but if I look down that road I will seek Drew as the driver on that venture too.
As a past owner of various properties, purchased with and without a realtor I know I'll chose the best route the first time and contact Drew right away: he has established a benchmark of excellence in service that I am delighted to have discovered in a and simply won't settle for less.
Discovering Drew was the reason for purchasing our first home last year! He updated us daily with homes to suit or needs and budget. He was always available at any call and answered any questions we may have had. Absolutely LOVE our new home! Thanks Drew...you're the best!

After living in our home for the past fifteen years, the thought of selling and moving was very daunting. We had been looking online to see what was out there for a few months and Drew was one of the realtors who were sending us listings in our price range and we liked the fact that he worked from Duncan to Victoria as we were moving from Shawnigan Lake to Victoria.
Drew came into our home and was excited about selling it which helped our anxiety at the thought of selling.
Drew was always very respectful and never pushed us. He listened to what we wanted and offered helpful advice as it had been 15 years since we had moved.
Drew was always honest with us and didn’t mislead us. We aren’t the wheeler dealer type of people so we really appreciated this about Drew.
Drew spent a lot of time going over everything so we fully understood each process. He was always pleasant and responded to our calls/texts whenever we sent them.
I would strongly recommend Drew to anyone buying/selling a home. I would definitely use Drew again should the opportunity arise.

My wife and I were living on the mainland and looking to move to the island. Drew got a hold of us through an inquiry we sent and talked to us over the phone about our preferences. We didn't even have a specific area so when we met up with him he drove us around covering all the way from Lake Cowichan area down to Maple Bay and Cowichan Bay area. The information he gave us was very helpful in us finding the house we wanted. The thank you gift certificate he sent and the bottle of wine was an added bonus when we went out and had a delicious meal and drinks. He never once put pressure on us and even in his subtle way inferred when a certain house wasn't really for us. We appreciated his integrity and laid back professionalism.

My wife and I were purchasing our first home and of course we were a little nervous. Drew worked with us the through whole process, giving us advice which helped us feel very comfortable with our decisions. It was great to know we had someone looking out for us, pointing out things we would otherwise not have noticed, and working to make sure we got just what we were looking for. Thanks Drew!
We hired Drew to sell our home over another agent our family had worked with in the past. On top of his experience, he made us feel like we were a true priority to him. He proved to be accountable and trustworthy, and really guided us through the process of selling. It took about 3 months, but we ended up receiving multiple offers and selling for over our asking price. Drew believed in the list price he recommended, and encouraged us to remain patient. We're thrilled and couldn't be happier with the way things turned out.
~ Angela and Mike
We met Drew at an open house, and he was very friendly and low pressure from the beginning (the home we met him at wasn't for us, and he never tried to "sell" us on it, which was very relieving). He made certain that we knew we would move at our pace and ensured that we understood the process at every stage. He was honest, dependable and made our first home buying experience a lot less frightening and actually more fun than we thought it would be. We told Drew that we were moving from another city, and knew very little about the place were moving to. Drew took the time to provide information about our Victoria, and really helped us make sure it was the right move for us. Since we took possession of our home, he has made himself available to answer all of our real estate questions and has kept us up to date on the market. We have referred Drew numerous times to our friends and family, and will be hiring him for all of our future real estate transactions.
