Mimi is an amazing realtor, and we had such a great experience working with her.

She was professional and caring and worked very hard to get us the best deal. We can’t recommend her enough!

Mimi was able to sell my condo at asking price within a week of listing.

A lot of other realtors wanted me to jump through hoops with renovations and staging but she knew enough to know what would matter to the buyer. Would highly recommend her!!

Adel Boussenane

Mimi was an absolute superstar!

We were buyers in a crazy Victoria market and at no point did we feel pressured to go over our budget or settle for a property that wasn’t right for us. Mimi was very patient with us, yet she was persistent when we were ready to make an offer and she went to bat for use everytime. We trust Mimi’s advice and she was honest at every turn. We would not hesitate to use Mimi’s services again or recommend her to friends and family. Thank you, Mimi!

The selling process is always a bit stressful, and she got us through the twists and turns with ease.

I would highly recommend Mimi Kates to be your realtor for your next home purchase.

Mimi will work very hard, without being pushy, to help you find the home that is right for you, in your budget and that meets your needs. I can say with confidence that she makes herself available every day of the week, is highly ethical and can refer you to the best lawyers, oil tank scanners and home inspectors in Greater Victoria. Further, Mimi doesn’t get frustrated by a seller’s marker and will ensure that all of your offers (we had five) have your best interests in mind. It is without reservation that I would recommend Mimi Kates as your realtor and I would use Mimi again when buying or selling a home!


Amazing realtor!

Reply: Thanks Angie, you are my most inspirational client and so proud to be part of you first home buying experience! I hope you guys are enjoying your new home :) – Mimi


I had my home listed last year.

Mimmi did bring me an offer. But the people backed out at the last moment they were first-time buyers. She told me to take it off the market and wait until the spring as she knew that property values were increasing. So I did.I trusted her advice, And I'm glad I did. Early this spring Mimmi contacted me and said now is the time to sell. We had a few hurdles along the way but in the end she got me the price that I wanted. The house is now sold thanks to her and her perseverance. I highly recommend her, and if I ever have a home to buy or sell again I would definitely use Mimmi. She was a joy to work with.

Christopher Jenkins

It was an absolute pleasure meeting and working with Mimi.

I can unequivocally state that Mimi was outstanding in her role as a buyer’s agent. In fact, in all my years of buying and selling real estate, I have never met a realtor who is as efficient as Mimi. From our first meeting, she was highly professional, well organized, very knowledgeable of the market conditions, and had amazing interpersonal skills. Her attention to detail is quite unlike anything I have experienced before at the hands of a realtor. Mimi also follows up in a very timely fashion regarding all matters, regardless how large or small they are. She is thoughtful, helpful, and always looking for ways to improve the level of service she is offering. Mimi made buying real estate a pleasurable experience. It is without hesitation that I would recommend Mimi for all your real estate needs.

Mazzy M Macdonald

Mimi was fantastic.

Extremely bright..Very honest and trustworthy. We were sorry we could not buy a home in Victoria but there wasn't much availalbe in our price range and all of it required reno..We changed directions and decded not to buy in victoria but it had nothing to do with her lack of ability or effort.. We just got tired of being homeless and wanted to buy..closer to where we had lived due to convenience more than anything .. and exhaustion due to a difficult time we had had for two years attempting to develop a property we had purchased... We would definitely recommend her and will use her again when we 'retire' to Victoria in the future.
