Lisa's Client Testimonials

Had my best interests at heart

Lisa was very knowledgeable of the rural area of my property. This was important to list the property in the most appealing way. Lisa was friendly, easy to contact, and I felt she cared about finding me the best sale possible. I would definitely recommend Lisa! D. Shamro, September 2018

Delighted out of town seller!

Lisa was absolutely terrific! We had a few unusual circumstances going on, including a power of attorney situation and living 4 hours away from the property being sold. Lisa consistently went above and beyond for us, and provided excellent guidance. Susan, July 2018

Pleasure to Work With

We have worked with Lisa on 4 different real estate transactions and she has been amazing each time. Her knowledge and expertise greatly contributed to each situation and her patience was very much appreciated. For any future real estate transactions, we will absolutely use Lisa again and recommend her to our friends and family. She is such a pleasure to work with.  Lauren & Tim, August 2018

Definitely Work With Again

I am very pleased with the work Lisa Villamo put into the sale of my house and purchase of another. Her knowledge was invaluable and I appreciated her honesty, her friendly demeanor and I was very comfortable asking questions. She was always available to answer my concerns and help as problems arose. I will definitely be working with her and the Kirsten Mason team in any future real estate transactions in my future!  Leslie, April 2018

Knowledgeable of Unique Market & Community

Lisa helped me buy my dream home in Sun Peaks. Her knowledge of such a unique market and the community itself was above and beyond. She is very friendly and patient and answered my many questions. I would definitely recommend her to anyone, especially to first time buyers like myself.  Melissa

Never Felt Pushed

Lisa is an absolutely stellar person. Not once through the year of dealing with her did I felt pushed into anything. I wanted her to have her sale of course, but she was more than professional in getting me information/answers for any request. Her patience really shined through this process and I'm grateful I met a good real estate agent, but more so a person of high quality!!  Romeo

Attentive & Pleasant

Lisa was very attentive and pleasant to work with. She was on top of all areas of the process, kept us well informed throughout each step of the process. Lisa was always very friendly and personable. Would definitely work with her again for future real estate dealings.  Gary

A Pleasure

Excellent realtor and a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended! Pati & Dave

Very Friendly & Helpful

I appreciate all the work Lisa & the office did for my quick turnover of selling to buying my current property :)! I have only good things to say about this office & although I have no personal real estate needs in future I will strongly recommend to anyone who is looking to buy or sell that I know :) Lisa was very helpful especially following the inspection with the seller & neighbours which I very much appreciated. All staff are very friendly & I always had any queries answered quickly. Made a bit of a stressful time much smoother than it could have been! Thanx again!  Terra


Punctual & Flexible

Lisa is an absolutely lovely person and was very kind and professional throughout my entire experience purchasing up in Kamloops. She was knowledgable, quick to respond to any and all questions I had and was punctual and flexible with viewings. I'm happy to have had her help along the way... really couldn't have asked for a better realtor. I highly recommend and would absolutely use Lisa again in the future.  Sarah & Brandon

Will Use Her Again

I would strongly recommend Lisa to anybody who would like a realtor where she works. If we are ever looking at buying a house or selling a house or condo we would definitely use her again.  Richard & Anita

Went Out of Her Way

I really appreciate Lisa going out of her way to find us a house that was suitable for myself, my family, and my mom and dad with enough room for all of the kids and the pets in the neighborhood that we really wanted to stay in. Thank you again Lisa for all you did it was a long haul but it was awesome!  Jenny & Chris


Pleasure to Work With

Lisa was an absolute pleasure to work with. Coming from out of town and with limited time, we did a marathon day of house viewing to find "the one". Start to finish Lisa was friendly, professional, patient, knowledgable, and went above and beyond to make sure I was happy. I would definitely work with Lisa again, and highly recommend her to anyone looking for their next home.  Wyanne

Beyond Expectations

To say something about Lisa. She is awesome! Would not hesitate to use her as a realtor again. She went out of her way and beyond my expectations. I am so happy that I met Lisa and had the opportunity to use her services as a realtor. She's # 1 in my books. Steve

Amazing & Patient

Lisa was amazing, and so patient! New to Kamloops it took us some time to find just the right area AND the right house. She was always professional and encouraging. We found the market demand frustrating some days and thought we'd never find the 'right' one, that wasn't already spoken for. Lisa was patient and assured us we would, and made herself available to show home after home LOL. We thank you so much Lisa, you are the best!!!! Mark & Candida

Exceeded Expectations

As veteran home buyers but first time "Out of Town" buyers we were often disadvantaged by time and accessibility. Lisa was very understanding and patient with us, even going as far as visiting perspective homes in our absence to measure noise volume from busy streets. The Kirsten Mason team and specifically Lisa Villamo went way beyond any reasonable expectations to put us in the market place and eventually our dream home. We can't say enough good things. Our sincere appreciation for her professionalism and patience.  Alan & Darlene

Highly Recommend!

Lisa Villamo is an amazing Real Estate Agent! She listened to our needs and worked hard to find us our dream home for our growing family. Her patience, knowledge, attention to detail, and great personality helped us first time home buyers feel comfortable and stress free during the whole process! We highly recommend Lisa to everyone looking to purchase a home in Kamloops and the Thompson Region! Thanks again Lisa and the Kirsten Mason Team for making this experience so fun and exciting for our family!  Jackie & Jared

Great Perspective

Lisa is one of the best realtor we have worked with, she is very knowledgeable about the Sun Peaks market, she was able to guide us through the available listings and really allowed us to find a great home. She provides great perspectives on listings, highlighting features or potential concerns that we might have missed and through her extensive connections she is capable of addressing any question. We would have no hesitations to work with Lisa again or recommend her to friends!  Jean Yves & Katell

Valuable Member

Lisa Villamo of the Kirsten Mason Team helped two old people through the selection and purchase of our new home. Lisa responded to every request for help or information regarding the unique requirements of Sun Rivers. We could not have wished for better service from Lisa, a valuable member of the KM Team.  Juanita & Peter

A Big Thank You

We spent 6 months with Lisa Villamo looking for the perfect home. She was patient, informative, and resourceful. Our request was a challenge - we were looking for specific things inside the home, within a defined area in Kamloops, and of course, at a good price! Lisa met all these requirements; she sought out homes that would interest us and was able to answer our questions about what to look for and who to ask, i.e. how much do windows cost? Who would I talk to about getting a foundation assessment? What I appreciated most about Lisa was that she was honest and genuine. She didn’t pressure us or try to persuade us into something we weren’t quite sure about. Lisa was also always available, she demonstrated passion and dedication to her work and would make time after hours, in the evening, to take us through homes. I would like to send a big thank you to Lisa and the Kirsten Mason Team for all they have done for us. We are very happy with our new home!  Andrea & Duff

A Great Job

Lisa and the Kirsten Mason team did a great job with the acquisition of my new Kamloops home! I came to Lisa to find me a unique property as a second home. As I am from the Vancouver, I didn't know the area all that well. Lisa took the time to show me the areas and find that perfect property for me! Dean

Trusted Resource

We were looking for a lakefront cabin near Sun Peaks and had the pleasure of working with Lisa Villamo who lives in the area and knows it very well. Lisa was extremely responsive to the many questions we had and spent a large portion of several weekends with us getting to know our priorities, touring properties, and sharing critical insights on the attributes of various locations. She subsequently facilitated the negotiations, actively supported the subsequent inspections and discussions to resolve potential concerns, and continues to be a trusted resource as we move into our new home. Thank you very much Lisa and to the supporting Kirsten Mason Team!  Kate & Chad

Expert Knowledge

I can't highly recommend Lisa enough! She is in real estate for the right reasons: to help her clients find the best home, at the best value. Her expert knowledge of the local market enabled me to find exactly what I was looking for, and at a great price. Lisa's professionalism, personality, experience, and attention to detail made whole the process enjoyable, rather than stressful. I would definitely work with her again and certainly recommend her if you're looking to buy or sell a home.  Ivan

Pays Attention to all the Details

Lisa was wonderful to work with!! She is organized and pays attention to all the details. She did a very good job of selling our home, giving ample notice for viewings and providing us prompt feedback. We were very uncertain about what we wanted to buy; she patiently took us to three communities, and many different types of houses----always with a smile!! We appreciated all the help, time and patience she gave us. She does an outstanding job!!! We have recommended her to many people.  John & Doris

The Perfect Fit

Kirsten and her entire team are an absolute pleasure to work with. They are fast, efficient, professional and get the job done! They take the stress out of buying and selling a home. Kirsten set us up with Lisa to help find a new home and I can’t say enough about her. My husband and I are very picky…and she was so patient, understanding and totally dedicated to finding the perfect fit for us. She remembered every little detail that we said we were looking (and not looking) for and ultimately helped us find and purchase the perfect home! And to top it off she was so much fun to work with. I highly recommend Kirsten & Lisa to anyone looking to sell and/or buy a home!!  Jen & Monte

Totally Professional

She made the journey of selling and buying a pleasant experience. Lisa was always ready and willing to put her clients interest first. She is totally professional and gets the job done. From the open house to her regular updates on all viewings. I will defiantly be referring Lisa to my clients.  Caroline & James

Absolute Pleasure

It was an absolute pleasure dealing with Lisa. She was professional , knowledgeable, and always went above and beyond. She updated me every step of the way and paid attention to all the little details that I missed or failed to see in the process of buying my new home. She is a class act. I have referred Lisa to friends and will continue to refer her to friends and family in the future. She is an excellent choice.  Jordan

Does Not Push

Your group is very enjoyable to work with. Lisa is very patient and understanding and does not push for the quick sales….a trait that is getting lost by other sales associates. If someone is looking for a residential sales agent, I will strongly recommend Lisa.  Wayne & Angela

Wonderful Experience!

Lisa was always available to answer all our questions. She is extremely knowledgeable & really cared about selling our home. We couldn't have found a better Realtor! She kept us updated every step of the way & made sure every detail was taken care of. She went the extra mile on many occasions. Our home sold quickly & for a great price. We highly recommend her to everyone! She is so committed & a delightful person.  Wendi


We would like to say working with Lisa was very enjoyable! She was very thorough and professional with the purchase of our cabin! She made sure we were notified as soon as any changes were made. We will recommend her for future purchases to friends and family! Thanks!  Rod & Michelle

Great Grasp on Housing Market

My residence sold and I had to purchase a new home quickly. My narrow time line also included a holiday I had planned a year earlier. Lisa understood this and went above and beyond to set up viewings on very short notice, and at times that worked around my job. Lisa was very dedicated to finding me a new home, and had a great grasp on the housing market as well as the positives/negatives of the different areas of the city. When something needed to be clarified on a home, Lisa found out the information promptly - no matter what time of the day. Lisa, you represented the Kirsten Mason Team in a very professional manner and I am impressed with you and your office staff’s abilities. Lisa, thank you for all the commitment, work, and time you put into finding me my new home which met all my needs. It was appreciated!  Doug

Superb Professionalism

I have had nothing but amazing service and superb professionalism from Lisa. She made our out of town search for a new house so easy. I was not an easy person to make happy, and the more we saw of the handpicked ones she chose for us, we knew she had us on the right track. She helped us find our wonderful house in Pineview. She took the extra step to call us several times during the last two weeks of our closing date to see how things were going. We were impressed by her attention to us...even after the sale had been achieved. She even had a gift for us in the house when we came in on moving day. I would recommend Lisa for anyone looking for a house here because to her, you are more than just a client. Thank you Lisa for your sweet manner and persistence in finding our new home. Michelle & Mike

Positive Attitude

It was a pleasure working with Lisa. She understood what we wanted in a Realtor, giving us lots of feedback and suggestions for selling our home. Lisa was responsive to our needs and maintained a positive attitude at all times. She instilled confidence and assured us that we would sell our home quickly and at the right price point.  Allison & Kale

Stress Free & Exciting!

Lisa proved to be an amazing Real Estate Agent who restored our faith in Realtors after a few previously failed attempts. Lisa took the time to really get to know us as a family, what our needs were, and how best she could make this a smooth transition for us. Which is exactly what she did! Not once did she push us when decisions needed to be made but gave us all of the facts and waited for us to absorb the information so that we were confident with how things were proceeding. Not once did it feel like Lisa was there to 'make a sale' but that she was there to help us and so when it came time to buy our new house we could not think of a more wonderful partner to assist us. And assist us she did! She was so patient and understanding and urged us to take our time to make this big decision and even helped us see our new home multiple times so that we again had all of the confidence that we could have asked for. I would, and constantly do, highly recommend Lisa as you will find that she makes selling and buying your home stress free and exciting!  Linda & Steve


Lisa did an amazing job finding us a house that had checked everything off our list plus so much more. She worked hard to find us this house & have us move in less than a month. I don't think many Real Estate Agents could do that.  Tara

Highly Professional

This is a testimonial on my very pleasant experience with my Real Estate Agent Lisa Villamo when purchasing my house in Kamloops BC. Lisa made me more than comfortable throughout the whole process. She is highly professional and most importantly, very pleasant to deal with. I highly recommend her services to all and thank her very much for all she did for me.  Andy

Exceptional Customer Service

Finding someone that provides exceptional customer service is rare these days, when you see it, it really stands out. Lisa Villamo is that rare individual! She is hard working, honest, and has a sincere desire to help people. She helped us list and sell 3 properties in the past few months. We highly recommend Lisa to everyone that wants to sell or purchase a home in Kamloops or Thompson region!  Rick & Maureen

Highly Recommend

We have used realtors for previous home purchases in other cities but the experience we had with Lisa was the best by far. Lisa carefully gauged our responses to each home we viewed and asked our feed back to narrow the search to the perfect home. Then she made sure the purchase was carried out without any hitches and made sure the offer was comprehensive with no grey areas. We are very pleased with Lisa and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to purchase a home here.  Ron & Linda

No Hesitation in Recommending

Not being a Canadian, only a seasonal visitor, who has a property near Kamloops, I was looking for a property to flip. I had spoken to a few agents with no luck, but then I met Lisa!! I met her to view a property, which did not go through, but Lisa set me up with a PCS account, which meant I received suitable properties in my price range. She always followed up on all my inquiries, and after a couple of months found the property I wanted. I was extremely happy with the way she helped me through the purchase, and would have no hesitation in recommending her, and look forward to working with her to sell the house once it is fixed up.  Tim

Second To None

My buying experience with Lisa Villamo was second to none. She is one of the hardest working people I have met, with an excellent knowledge base of the Kamloops and area real estate market. I was looking at multiple properties, and the level of research and timely information that she constantly provided was incredible. She truly was a step ahead in the entire process and has an uncanny ability to foresee problems and questions before they arise. I would definitely recommend her as a realtor and look forward to working with her in the future.  Reeve

BEST Realtor in Kamloops!

I am very pleased to submit the following testimonial regarding Lisa Villamo and our home purchase experience. The first thing that drew us to the Kirsten Mason Team and Desert Hills Realty was the user friendly web site where we could view MLS listings without giving all of our personal information. As I navigated the site and the decision for our move became final, I realized this was the Realty Company I would like to work with and I registered as a buyer on their site. This gave me access to a lot of information about the properties we were interested in. I called and spoke to Realtor, Lisa Villamo who made herself available to us for an entire weekend (which stretched out to many, many, additional days). Lisa gleaned information from us and truly listened to us which resulted in narrowing our search to the most appropriate properties. Lisa made certain we were comfortable during our search during the very warm month of August, supplying cold water bottles, etc. She welcomed my daughter, son-in-law, sister and other family members on our many viewings. When it came time to make an offer, Lisa assisted us with “fair market values”, days on the market, city by-laws, right of ways, encroachments, etc. Lisa had an innate ability to foresee and solve problems and she was quick to sense any apprehensions and concerns we had. When I was determined not to spend the money on a home inspection for such a recently built house (9 yrs), Lisa was able to give me sound advice on the risks which helped me make my decision to have one done. The home inspection led to several repairs which the sellers were happy to complete and which saved us money in the end. The repairs far outweighed the cost of the inspection. Once our offer was accepted, we asked for changes regarding closing date and possession date. Lisa worked hard for us to get the sellers to be able to accommodate our requests. On move in day, along with the keys, Lisa arrived with a wonderful gift (much appreciated). During this process, Lisa has met many of our family members, listened to our stories, and truly has become a wonderful friend as well as a realtor who I will recommend to family members, friends and anyone else I meet in need of the BEST Realtor in Kamloops! Thanks for the opportunity to provide this information regarding our experience with Lisa Villamo and the Kirsten Mason Team.  Brad and Lee

Extremely Pleased With Service

We were extremely pleased with the service we received from Lisa Villamo during and after our house hunting trip. Lisa is not only a very personable, friendly and considerate individual, she is also a thorough and diligent Realtor with a wonderful work ethic. Lisa filled in for Kirsten at the last minute and very quickly got up to speed with us on our very time-limited house hunting trip to Kamloops. Lisa also stayed on top of things after our return to Regina, advocating for us with the Home Inspector, Notary, Kamloops Indian Band and Seller's Realtor. There were a few problems created by the seller along the way which Lisa handled professionally and in a timely fashion. Century 21 Desert Hills Realty and Kirsten Mason should feel very fortunate to have Lisa working for/with them. We were so pleased with the service and assistance Lisa provided, we have already recommended her to my brother and his wife as they explore a move of their own in Kamloops. Thanks for everything Lisa. It was greatly appreciated!  Lyle & Merle

Thoroughly Impressed

I was thoroughly impressed with Lisa's work. She was helpful, competent, efficient and available for all our questions and queries that go with purchasing real estate. I would happily recommend her!  Emma & Glenn

Understanding & Patient

After over a year of being too scared to take the plunge and purchase a home, someone referred me to Lisa Villamo. She understood right away that I was very nervous and she worked with me at my own pace. As I work out of town in camps, I had to purchase my home sight-unseen. Lisa went and did a walk around for me and informed me what to expect. I have been living in my new home for almost a month now and I am so happy that I had the faith and trust in Lisa to help make this happen. Thank you so much Lisa! I could not have asked for a better Realtor. I will be using her again.  Debbie
