Andrena Koch-Schulte, Carla Arnold, and Henry Salmon
Over several years, Andrena assisted us in moving to the Comox Valley from Victoria. She was extremely patient and generous with her knowledgeable advice. She toured homes for us when we were unable to view in person and left no stone unturned in an extremely competitive market. She offered suggestions for us to consider without adding pressure as we made huge life decisions. We highly recommend connecting with Andrena to be your guide and ally with your next big move!

“It was such a pleasure to work with Carla. From our first conversation her professionalism and experience made us feel confident in the process. Our situation was unique, and Carla went over and above the whole away to insure we were satisfied. Her excellent communication skills along with her dynamic approach to real estate provided us with the piece of mind knowing we had the best realtor for the job. Carla was able to secure our sale and complete closing within 4 weeks of our first showing! I would highly recommend Carla to anyone looking to sell their home.”

"We were very fortunate to have Andrena helping us with the sale of our house. From the very first interview, we got to know Andrena as someone who was organized, driven, in touch with the market and diplomatic in her approach. Throughout our sale, which was complicated by having a tenant in our house, Andrena went above and beyond in her ability to liaise with our tenant, other realtors and those touring our house and was instrumental in the smooth transition of our tenant to a new residence during the COVID 19 Pandemic. The marketing package offered by Andrena and her team is very impressive. From floor layout diagrams, video walk throughs, and drone footage to aggressive market exposure with pamphlets, newspaper ads, web presence and newsletters, we were confident that our house had the very best chance of selling. We were very impressed with the service and effort put into our sale by Andrena. There are many good realtors out there, but Andrena brings a service that outperforms expectations."
We are so grateful for the help we received from Henry and Carla in finding our first little home in Cumberland. By sending us video footage of the property, arranging an inspection and multiple contractor viewings of the home, finding us a mortgage broker (who secured an awesome rate!), and taking the time to answer all of our questions on numerous occasions, Henry and Carla made the first-time home buying process easy. On top of that, Henry took the time to tidy up the home the day before we arrived and left us a beautiful house warming package. Throughout the entire process, Henry and Carla were always reachable and communicated efficiently. We couldn’t be happier in our new home! We highly recommend Henry, Carla, and the team at Royal LePage in the Comox Valley. Thanks again for all of your help!! We absolutely love the home, property, and neighbourhood.

Andrena was recommended to us by a top realtor on the Island, noting her exceptional character, professionalism and expertise. And having now sold our house through her we couldn't agree more and we are very happy she was our agent. From the get-go Andrena was very positive and encouraging, and importantly, responsive to our needs and perspectives. The video and marketing materials were top notch, and she provided excellent referals for companies that helped get the house into prime selling condition. It only took 7 days to get the sale done! Having bought and sold many times this was by far our best experience and we would highly recommend Andrena.

Dearest Andrena, Patrick and I can’t thank you enough for all your kind and gentle guidance through this entire process. You were patient and dedicated for the past few years as we poked around the various neighbourhoods. Your gentle, genuine nature never waivered and there was not one moment where we felt you were not “with us”.
If you need a Realtor in the Comox Valley, I would highly recommend Carla and her team. You couldn't ask for more professional service or nicer people to deal with. Audrey
Full time experts. These ladies are among the best in the business.
Andrena, thanks for guiding us through this process and helping me buy my first house! Your competence, experience, patience and humour were paramount in building trust. I look towards the future and am excited to be part of this vibrant thriving community. Thanks for all your work and support.
I thought, well these look like an interesting group of ladies, so I gave them a phone call and I'm glad I did. I sold my Comox home last year with Carla's help and it was an excellent experience. Carla's very professional, she's intuitive, she's approachable, she's available which is very important, and she's also fun. I found her very excellent to work with and I enjoyed it. The market did change dramatically at some point there and Carla was intuitive enough to make changes as we followed the market changes and fluctuations. From that perspective it was really important because markets don't stay stagnant and neither does Carla.
Great service, integrity, good communication and very patient! So happy we chose to work with this group.
Andrena, we are so grateful for all of your help on our house hunt! You have been so patient, kind and understanding with us throughout this long hunt. Thanks for everything!
We bought our first house with Carla and we are in the process of also selling our first house with Carla and buying our second. The experience has been super positive she was so helpful all the way through answered all of our questions and as we've been fixing up our little fixer-upper she's answered questions about what we should do to get our money back and what we should put money into and what we should be thinking about for potentially selling our first home.
Andrena, you have demonstrated initiative and professionalism in using various tools made available to you, like the short video and the well-prepared glossy pamphlet enhancing the appeal of our home, the brilliant idea of working as a team with two other realtors with complimentary skills. Two years ago we listed our home with Royal Lepage, specifically with you Andrena Koch-Schulte, and having made the decision to sell our present home, it was without hesitation we chose you again, your leadership, dedication, ethical values and business acumen made it easy for us to reach out to you. Thank you Andrena, we would have no hesitation in recommending you to family, friends or anyone for that matter. Thank you again.
Dear Andrena, we are both so grateful for all your hard work, your professional manner, attention to detail and superb negotiating skills! We will miss you.
We all have busy lives, lots of stuff going on and to know that there's a whole team behind Carla, that they work so well together, that they've got each other's backs. Seamless everything went seamless.
I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed working with you in my search for a rental property in Courtenay. I am very happy with my purchase and credit you for educating me on all the options in terms of properties and the rental situation which made me comfortable with my ultimate purchase choice. You are very knowledgeable and helped me immensely. I also appreciated how you accommodated my time and were always there to meet me and actually went way beyond my expectations by doing a walk through for me on closing. Being an out of town buyer could have been challenging but not with you. Thank you again for everything you did for me. I certainly will recommend you to all future buyers.
We called up and Andrena asked if we could meet with her. The very first house she showed us was the house we ended up buying so it was a great result.
Andrena was an absolutely superb Realtor who ranks among the best with whom my wife and I have worked over the course of many home sales and purchases. I am recently retired member of the Canadian Forces and chose to move to the Comox Valley for my wife’s employment and my retirement. We were immediately impressed by Andrena’s attention to our emails. Andrena is first and foremost a professional and expert in her field. At every turn, she demonstrated the knowledge of the Comox Valley, the real estate market, house construction and the process involved with home purchases in BC. As “seasoned” home buyers and sellers, we were truly impressed by Andrena’s attention to detail and keen commitment. In addition to her professional attributes, Andrena is genuinely kind and personable. We are proud to call her our first new friend in the Comox Valley. I would unhesitatingly recommend Andrena as a Realtor, without reservation.
