Forbes And Marshall - Testimonials

Tell Us Your Story

Michael and Lisa did a fantastic job of helping us buy a home in Victoria.

We made a few trips from the Okanagan and Michael and Lisa were always well prepared for our visits, with paperwork on all the houses we were interested in ready to go. They would set aside most of the day for us, knowing we had limited time while in town. They were very knowledgeable, patient, polite and friendly. They promptly answered all our questions, whether by phone, email or text, about the houses we were looking at, the neighbourhoods, the intricacies of stratas, and went the extra mile to get documents to us in the Okanagan and keep us up to date on any developments. They made the whole process very easy and stress free. We are very happy with the house we ended up buying and Michael even came by on moving day to help get the piano into the house! We would 100% recommend Michael and Lisa as your realtors if you are looking to buy a house in Victoria.

These agents provided excellent, professional, no pressure service, during a difficult estate sale.

They provided market evaluations, researched subdivision possibilities, and advice on how to best market a property that was not in the best condition for sale - all without any obligation to enlist their services. Once listed, the property sold in a week, with the desired early possession date, at a price that greatly exceeded my expectations.


We would highly recommend Forbes and Marshall for all real estate business.

They were professional and very caring in our unusual circumstances. Moving a parent to a seniors facility is never easy but they made it just that "easy". Mum was delighted with how quickly and smoothly the process took place. The sale of her property went above and beyond our expectations. They really know their business! I plan to ask them to help me sell my condo in a few years.

Michael and Lisa were the selling agents for our home in Sidney, BC.

From the moment we met with them in September 2020, until the time of the new owner house possession in February 2021, their service was exemplary. They considered no questions to be foolish and always helped with any query we may have. They are a delightful, friendly and professional couple who go the extra mile to make sure everything is understood in the selling transaction and I would highly recommend them for either the sale or the purchase of your next home. Thank you, Michael and Lisa, for your kindness and consideration of our needs.

Michael &Lisa were warm, efficient and patient with us as we attempted to complete a challenging property purchase.

Any information and all updates were delivered in a timely and convenient manner. I would recommend Michael and Lisa to anyone looking to buy or sell. They exhibited much more calm and fortitude than I did at times.

Very professional realtors with excellent knowledge and experience.

They helped me find an amazing condo within my budget on a tight timeline in a competitive market. I would definitely recommend them and use their services again.

Michael and Lisa were a pleasure to deal with, and were very patient and thorough with our many viewings.

During an offer (we made a couple on different properties), Michael was great in giving us a ballpark figure on what to offer after doing some extensive comparables, right down to finding out renovations and permits on the current and comparable properties, if possible. I was surprised to hear he was down at City Hall one time digging up permits... what an effort! Thanks to both of them for their hard work.

Michael Forbes and Lisa Marshall were excellent agents to work with.

We sold a home and bought a home during an unprecedented time in our world and they guided us through things that nobody had ever experienced before. They understood that we were inexperienced and helped us to understand everything that we were diving into. They never tried to push us or tell us what to do but explained all the options and then let us make our own decisions. They are excellent communicators, very warm and friendly. Lisa made it her mission to find us a home in a market where the homes we were looking at were selling on the first day in multiple bid situations. She can absolutely get the job done. Micheal will call anyone to find out anything....City Hall? Yep. Irrigation company? Yep. Builder? Yep. And he calls you back on time too. They worked with us and our needs. They found solutions when things went sideways. Our kids enjoyed being around both of them. We found the house we wanted and they helped us make it happen. This was an interesting journey and we couldn't have done it without either of them. I don't plan to move house again but if I did I'd sure want them along with me.

Lisa and Michael helped a great deal, and even when we had to wait a while they hung in until we were finally able to get into the market.

They also referred us to other professionals, such as Moira McCallum Loneragers to be our mortgage broker. We would not hesitate to recommend them to our friends and family. They are awesome to work with.
