We were referred to Terri, by our Comox Valley realtor. What a blessing!
We thoroughly enjoyed working with her. We were so impressed with her attention to detail, honesty, advocacy, integrity, and professionalism. She quickly responded to emails, texts, or phone calls. Having sold our home, time was of the essence, and I was feeling a bit nervous about finding our new "dream home" in time, and not "settling." Through Terri's networking we were able to view a home that was not yet officially on the market, and it turned out to be "the one!" I felt like it was meant to be. Without hesitation, I would recommend Terri. I'm going to miss her!

Thank you for all your help in the recent purchase of our condo in Campbell River.
We appreciate all your effort on our behalf throughout the whole process. You were able to respond quickly to any questions and concerns we had. You supplied a great deal of information, documentation, and advice in a clear and understandable manner, with no pressure, whenever we asked. We were pleased that you provided all legal information and document copies for our perusal so we better understood what had gone before, and current rules and regulations in effect in the condo, and how we would likely be affected. Our lawyer was able to draw up all necessary paperwork from the information you supplied so the sale process proceeded very efficiently.

integrity|in-tegritē,noun, the quality of being honest and having strong moral principles
Integrity is the quality I seek in any professional I work with. This quality, combined with experience, knowledge, and friendly, efficient service describes Ted and Terri. And it is those attributes that generated in me a sense of trust. With their collaboration and patience, I successfully bought and sold residential properties three times in Campbell River; Ted found me my first house when I moved there and TNT sold my last home when I moved away.
In the summer of 2009 we went on a trip from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario to Vancouver Island. We stayed with Donna's sister in Courtenay for two weeks. While we were here we came up to Campbell River to visit friends. We knew we were going to move back to Vancouver Island eventually, so we decided to check out some real estate. Coast Realty was recommended to us so we went down to the office. When we got there we were introduced to Terri & Ted Chalaturnyk. We told them our situation and they were more than happy to accommodate us. Terri told us that she would send us MLS updates when we got back to the Soo. That was the start of a fond relationship between us. When we got back to the Soo, as promised, we got MLS updates on our computer 2 or 3 times a week for almost a solid year. In the summer of 2010 we made the move back to BC. We immediately went to see Terri & Ted. They were absolutely great to us and, through a lot of hard work on their part, finally found us the house we are now living in. Terri especially went out of her way for us. We will be forever grateful to her and Ted.
From more than satisfied clients,

Terri helped me see my home in a new light when she helped me stage my house when it was time to sell. Her hands on approach made me a feel very involved in the staging process. We have seafoam coloured counter tops and I have resented them since the day we moved in...Terri showed me how to use black accents to make the colour POP and now I LOVE my counter tops, I wouldn't even change them if given the option! My living room feels so cozy and conversational now that she helped me re-arrange my furniture. Staging changed weaknesses into strengths with a little effort and no cost. Seafoam counters can look current instead of dated and the view has become the focal point in a comfortable living room- what more could new owners want? The house has sold and I plan on using tips Terri gave me in making our new house a comfortable home. It doesn't surprise me at all that Terri had a client who decided after the house was staged that her current home was actually exactly what she wanted and there was no need to sell after all. I highly recommend Terri's real estate and staging talents to everyone in need.
My Husband and I were looking for property on the Island this summer to move back to after living 12 years in Asia. We currently live in Dubai and were out of touch with the Real Estate market so it was a real learning curve for us. We had been sort of looking around for a place to settle for the last 3 previous summers and hadn’t found anything that suited us until this year.
It was a real pleasure to have Terri Chalaturnyk guide us through this experience this summer. She was very attentive to our needs and extremely friendly and flexible considering the multiple changes to our travels throughout the summer as both my husband and I had only a few weeks available where we were in the same country together! Her dedication to us was amazing as she arranged and had overseen the professional house inspections. Correspondence was very difficult but we were very impressed as she made every available effort to keep us informed by email, cell phone messages and phone calls when we were in Victoria, and Newfoundland. We were constantly in touch.
On the rare occasion when she wasn’t available to escort us, as viewing selected properties had to be booked on a very short notice due to our schedules, she arranged that we were to be taken care of by her very professional husband Ted Chalaturnyk. Great teamwork!
I highly commend the professionalism of Terri in assisting my husband and I through this somewhat stressful period which ended very successfully with our newly purchased country dream home awaiting our return next May…
It would not have happened without her help,
Thank you Terri from the both of us!

Dear Terri; My husband and I would like to thank you for all your hard work on our behalf in our search for a home in Campbell River. Your dedication to your job and to us was unbelievable. We would highly recommend you to anyone looking to purchase a home here.You have made us feel so at home here and we thank you so very much.
~S & H Peters
Moving to a new location is always stressful, especially when you’re traveling half-way across the country, so it was a pleasure to meet Terri, who went out of her way to make the transition for us as smooth as possible. Most realtors are done after the papers are signed; not Terri…she continued to follow-up with the builder to resolve outstanding issues and ensured us she would be there to help in any way she could.
Would I recommend her? You bet! She’s thorough, competent and terrific!
~Marlyne & Dan
Competent, compassionate & caring is how we can best describe Terri.
Throughout the entire purchase process, Terri helped us along the way. Not being local to Campbell River, a lot of coordinating, use of email and photo sharing via internet, along with incredible response turnaround to our questions, proved to be very effective methods to enable our purchase to go smoothly. There was no wasted time or trips, which meant a lot to us as it's a round trip of 6 hours for us. Terri had everything impeccably organized, with every detail covered. We truly felt our interests were very well represented by Terri. It’s more than the purchase of a new home; it’s the relationship and trust we built along the way that we will cherish the most. Terri and Ted are people you can count on!
We've purchased several homes, and in this occurrence, I will go on record saying this was our best experience ever. We will call upon Terri for future sales/purchases for sure!

Realtors with integrity and who listen --- that’s Ted and Terri. When we moved to Campbell River we had planned what we wanted in a home --- Ted ran with it and then a wonderful thing happened, something even better came along. What more can we say --- 8 years later and we still feel the same way. It doesn’t get any better than that! Our highest recommendation --- selling or buying, they’ll be our realtors again.
Selling a family home is always an emotional experience. As a seller, you are parting with a house that is full of such special memories! After making the big decision to sell, I was looking for a realtor who would offer me a combination of two things: thoughtful advice and nurturing along the way - not easy to find! I was so fortunate to connect with Ted and Terri. They really provided an exceptional service. Their professionalism and caring, their experience and dedication…the perfect fit! An amazing team!!!
The whole process of finding and buying a house with Terri and Ted’s assistance was fun, exciting, and really quite easy. My husband and I were living in the Lower Mainland and decided to move to Campbell River. Terri and Ted were both very personable and had great communication skills. They were very skilled at figuring out exactly what I was looking for. They emailed me suitable listings and set up a schedule of houses to view for when I came into town. Looking at the houses with Terri was great fun! (I have to admit I was a bit disappointed we found something so quickly....) Once we found a house, they did everything they could to make the rest of the process as painless as possible. It was a very positive experience and a wonderful welcome to Campbell River. I highly recommend Terri and Ted to anyone looking for a realtor to help them buy or sell their home. They are outstanding at what they do!
Being a first time homebuyer, I was very scared and stressed yet excited about the prospect of owing my own home. Finding a realtor that was patient and knowledgeable was a huge concern for me. I spoke to my boss, who has bought several homes, regarding who would be the right realtor for me and she said with no hesitation, Terri Chalaturnyk.
Terri and her husband Ted made me feel very special and were truly genuine in how they treated me. They were very knowledgeable about the real estate market in Campbell River and helped me find a beautiful starter home that we could just move right in. They were there for me from start to finish, as the buying process can be somewhat overwhelming to any first time homebuyer. Whether it was a hug or a shoulder to lean on, they became more like family than just realtors.
Anyone who is a first time homebuyer or if you want an experienced, honest and hard working realtor, Terri and or Ted are the people I would highly recommend. Thanks Terri & Ted, for helping us find a home we love!
We first contacted Ted Chalaturnyk to show us a home when on a house hunting trip. We only had a weekend away from Vancouver but Ted was ready and willing to spend as much time as we needed. Although the home we asked Ted to show us did not turn out to be a good fit, he assessed our needs and recommended the Midland area. He spent an entire Saturday a week later showing us houses and we fell in love with one. Ted made the purchase of our new home easy despite the distance. When we decided to sell our home in Campbell River and move back to the Lower Mainland, we again looked to Ted (now partnered with Terri) for assistance and were not disappointed. Terri’s staging advice proved valuable as our home sold quickly and painlessly. I would highly recommend Ted and Terri! ~John & Sherri A.
Meeting Terri for the first time I was impressed with her enthusiasm and knowledge of real estate. She knew the right questions to ask myself and my husband to determine our needs, price range, and area for our new home. Therefore when we toured Campbell River, she was able to direct us not only to the area we may have chosen but the type of house/land we were looking for. We found her honest and forthright concerning all aspects of the purchasing process. We always felt as if we were her top priority until we were satisfied with a purchase. We are very pleased to have worked with Terri and finalized our purchase through her. Our recommendation is to call Terri at Coast Reality for all your real estate needs.
Pleasant, no pressure Real Estate Agent. Would definitely use the same REALTOR® again. Enjoyable experience.
