Buyers and Sellers Report Card
The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to show you their correspondence. Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my down-to-earth and honest approach has earned me many friends - I think that's fantastic!
IT HAS BEEN A PLEASURE
At my first meeting I knew Denise would be the realtor for me. She possessed the qualities I was looking for: honesty, integrity, years of knowledge and it felt like talking to a long-time friend. Denise knew exactly how to network and advertise to get the greatest response and return for my home. She was always available and answered me promptly when I called, even calming and reassuring me at times.
Denise hired a professional photographer and the photos and video were outstanding and represented the property well.
I would not use any other realtor in the future and highly recommend Denise Bouwmeester.
Thank you, it has been a pleasure working with you, Denise.

Helpful and Thoughtful
Denise, on behalf of my parents and myself, we are very happy with how the sale of their home went. My parents felt that you listened to their concerns and they in return respected the feedback you gave them, regarding the pros and cons of respective purchasers. We were impressed with how quickly you got the house on the market with the great pictures, that showed ow well the home had been maintained (please thank Murray Mitchell the photographer).
My parents told me how thoughtful you were when booking the appointments, that caused the lease disruption. Not an easy feat to juggle.
I would like to thank you for helping my parents with their new transition. We are looking forward to having many happy celebrations together.

Thank you Denise for your hard work and dedication in helping us find and acquire our perfect home! As this is the second time we've needed your expertise, we are grateful to you for not only the sale of our previous home in 2008., as well asOK the purchase of this new one is 2021. We would quite simply not have gotten to this point, without your skill and understanding on so many levels. Our family is forever grateful to have someone so amazing on our side!
Denise Bouwmeester is a wonderful Realtor. She make your house dreams come true. So knowledgeable, knows what to look for when you dont. She goes all out for you. THANK YOU FOR MAKING OUR VACATION HOME DREAMS COME TRUE.

LOVE OUR NEW HOME
Working with Denise is always a pleasure. Buying and selling in such a fast moving marketplace can show its challenges. Denise guided us through calmly and assuringly. Thank you Denise for your hours of hard work.
A Fabulous Experience
Andy and I have used a few realtors over the years and some were better then others. However, Denise Bouwmeester has been outstanding. She is personable, professional, knowledgeable, efficient, hard working, always on time either with appointments or email/call replies. She has a warm friendly personality and really works for you, with you. We thought it would take 6 months to a year to sell our farm but we were wrong. It took only 17 days and we could not be happier!
Just when we were losing hope of finding what we were looking for, and let me say, we were very particular on what we were looking for, we found just the one. The process was fast, clear and efficient! She reminded us of things we didnt know we wanted or could have.
Thank you Denise, we culdn't be happier. Will forever be a friend and be part of our family.
Andy Wright and Cecilia Guerrero
Denise was great to work with, super fast and always kept us in the loop!
Denise was just as excited as we were buy our first home. We will be recommending her to everyone:)

Rick and Cheryl
It was great working with Denise. I live out of town and my house was rented, so its definatley had its challenges. It was good to know that Denise understood the market and tenancy laws. Her communication and coordination with myself, the tenants and the property manager was great. She definately put my mind at ease and made the whole experience very easy.
Scott and Stephen Williams
Above and Beyond
I would just like to say how much I appreciate Denise Bouwmeester. She is very knowledgeable, and has a great attitude. You can tell she loves to sell houses. In my experience with Denise, we listed and sold my house in a matter of days, however it was not without hiccups. Through it all, Denise kept her sense of humour and guided me through all the little nooks and crannies of the sale of my home. I appreciate all she has done for me, even going above and beyond. I would definately recommend her to all my friends and family. And if I ever need a realtor in Kamloops, I will definately be looking her up. Thanks you so much Denise.
Competent, Efficient, Friendly and Helpful
Denise is extremely competent and efficient, as well as friendly and helpful. She produced excellent and very professional video and phot layout, on the internet. Within a few days of listing the house wwe had a buyer, as well as competing offers. I would gladly recommend Denise, she knows her Business very well indeed and is always available for you. Her professionalism and going above and beyond, was exceptional
An Awesome Experience
Rob and I just wanted to send you this note to let you know hjow happy we are about the sale of our house and so appreciate all your hard work!!

WE ARE SO HAPPY
I had the pleasure of having Denise Bouwmeester work with me over the last few years. I met Denise when I bought my first home in 2013. My experience with her, back then, had such a positive impact that I used her services to sell my home in 2017.
I have the privledge in witnessing her at work on both sides, as a purchaser and a seller. Denise is extremly knowledgeable in the real estate marketplace and carries a professional persona. She never once told me what I just wanted to hear in order to make a sale. She is genuine and honest, these are traits that are very important to me. When purchasing my first home, I had many questions that are not mentioned on the normal MLS listing. Denise went out of her way to research and answer every single question I had. She is hard working and very personable. When it came time to sell my first home, it involved alot of work and updates in order to sell. She went out of her way to help me to the point of doing dump runs with own truck and on her own time.
Denise has gained my trust when it comes the purchase and sale of a home. This leads me to use her services once again for the purchase of my new home.
In January of 2020 I found myself on the road to purchase my next home. This journey was a hard, stressful road with failed home inspections and rejections from some lenders. Denise continually encouraged me through these months to not lose hope and assured me that I would find my perfect home. With a cheerful attitude, she once again went out of her way, in many differnt way to meet my needs and make my dreams of owning another home come true.
Candice and Amanda
No Pressure and Total Honesty
Denise was a massive help in finding the right home. It took a few years and she showed a lot of different places with no pressure and total honesty and dedication on her part, which was a massive positive.; She stands by her clients if there are questions or problems and happily helps out on all. I recommend Denise for any Real Estate transacations.
Ken and Dee

Denise was a great Realtor for our family. She was always on top of things and quick to respond. She gave the necessary reminders and was always forthcoming. I was able to rely on Denise and she was so kind and sweet to our baby.
Jennifer and Nick St. Pierre
A HAPPY REPEAT CLIENT
Myself and Glenn would like to thank Denise very much for helping with the sale of our condo. The same condo that Denise helped us purchase back in 2012. Obviously, we knew what kind of service we would receive when selling, as it was Denise who helped us then, also.
Thank you very much
Rosalie & Glenn
Thank you Denise for your patience and understanding. We couldnt have sold my Mom's mobile home without you! Niki Bone
Trevor and I wanted to thank you for all your efforts in purchasing our first home. I was thoroughly impressed with your dedication in helping me become a home owner. You truly went above and beyond working not only with other realtors, but also with my financial institution and the lawyer's office. You were able to answer all of my (many!) questions and were always available when I needed your expertise. Trevor and I will most certainly think of you in the future should we ever be looking to purchase again, or alternately, be interested in selling. Lastly, should you be in the area anytime soon, you are always welcome to come visit have a cool drink on our new shaded deck!
LOTS OF PRAISE
I would like to praise you to high heaven for everything that you have done for me, much of it over and above, being my realtor. my home sold very quickly, at a very good price. I would recommend her highly as a realtor.
Above and Beyond
My husband and I, first met Denise, 4 years ago when we were looking to purchase our first home. Denise was kind and guiding and her knowledge of the different areas of Kamloops was amazing. since then our jobs have taken us away from Kamloops. So when it came time to sell our house, it was only natural for us to choose Denise as our realtor,. During the time our house was on the market, Denise went above and beyond. She helped us to coordinate many aspects of the sale, which without her would have been impossible, as we had already moved away. My husband and I are so thankful for Denise and all she has done.
I wouldnt hesitiate to use Denise as a realtor again in the future and I have already recommened her to several friends, as I believe as services are second to none.
Matt and Laura
I just wanted to say I greatly appreciated your expertise and professionalism during the sale of my mother's home. with all the emotional and upsetting things that were going on for me, you were certainly the best realtor that ayone could ask for. I would wholehearedly recommend your services to anyone looking for a top notch realtor, and I will be contacting you in the future, for any real estate needs I have!
A GREAT EXPERIENCE
The house sold very fast and we are pleased with the price we received for it. She gave us wonderful service, even arranging for carpet cleaning and moving furnture for us, while we were away.

A WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE
Denise has excellent client relations and always kept in touch. Had a woderul time.
Happy Repeat Customer
My wife Jennifer and I have used Denise to buy a foreclosure and sell our existing home and have been exttremely satisfied with her service. She was able to make recommendations on what improvements would help sell our home quickly and at top dollar. She priced it fairly, after discussing it with us, and this prompted a quick offer and sale. Denise also has an excellent knowledgw of locals, which can be invaluable when finding out about the history of a property. I would gladly recommend Denise to anyne who needs a realtor in the Kamloops area; she's friendly, helpful and will always goes that extra mile. James and Jenn

My Realtor Denise Bouwmeester
My realtor Denise Bouwmeester, lead me through the process of selling my home, explaining what I didnt understand, until I did. Celebrating when we thought it was SOLD and when that fell through, she had it SOLD for good, right away. She went over and above to help me and so did her hubby Peter. I don't think I would have survived this without them. Luv you both Mavis Sorensen
FOR EVERYTHING YOU DO
Just a note to thank you for your generous help and support these past few weeks. We certainly appreciate the little extras that you have done for us.
Sincerely Cecile and Jack

I WOULD WHOLEHEARTEDLY RECOMMEND HER
Denise B's years of experience as a realtor was invaluable to me as relatively inexperienced buyer & seller. She had a feel for reading between the lines and dealing with potential problems in a way that made everyone fell satisfied. She went above and beyone her duties as a realtor several times and was genuinely concerned about me and my needs as a client. I can wholeheartedly recommend her services.
SHE DID A WONDERFUL JOB
Denise Bouwmeester was our real estate agent in a recent sale. She was not only professional and patient from start to end, but also went above and beyone to make sure the process was seamless in its entirety. Sometimes real estate transactions can get sticky, but Denise was there every step of the way. She even called contractors and helped with home inspections on her own time. She never flinched, rather was calm, cool and collected, when times got tough and saw the transaction through till the end.
I would totally recommend Denise as a real estate agent. She was not just an agent, but in the end....a friend. When you need some to be there for you...call Denise. I would again,. Sincerely yours

Speedy House Sale!!!
Denise, can't thank you enough for helping us sell our house soooo quickly!! Not many people can say they made a sale by "just putting a sign on a lawn"!! But you did just that!! Thank-you again.
I'm so grateful
Denise, I am so grateful that your name was given to me as a trusted realtor. We viewed so many homes together and I learned so much from you. Your expertise is amazing and never once did you try to push a sale, even in a slow real estate market. You were there for me and remained focused on my needs throughout. I highly recommend you to others as it stands clear that you want the best for your client. I thank you for all the time, effort and patience while I searched for my home.
Exceptional skill and professionalism
Years in construction business
Thanks so much, Denise, for helping us find our family home. We love the neighbourhood you helped us choose and are enjoying getting to know our new neighbours. We are grateful for our expertise in navigating the new home market; your years in the construction business were an obvious benefit in getting us into the home quickly and with ease. Thanks again, we appreciate all you have done for us.
Very professional and courteous
I recently purchase a home through Denise Bouwmeester and found her to be very professional and courteous. She protected my interests by steering me away from properties that were not right for me. Denise made the tansition from buyer to owner, by anticipating problems that may arise, so it was a smooth transition. She spent many hours,even on her days off, to hear about properties and research them. Thanks Denise for a job well done.
Sold in 3 Days
We listed my mother's house in Kamloops with Denise Bouwmeester, as she was referred to us by a friend. We didnt know any realtors in Kamloops. She came and saw us at 10:00 am and by 2:00 pm had people coming to see the house. It sold in 3 days, which is what we wanted as we were heading South for the winter. She did a great job getting us a good deal.
Understanding and informative
Denise Bouwmeester.. Thank you so much for selling our home so quickly. You made the entire home selling easy with your friendly and warm personality. You made sure we understood everything that was happening and kept us informed throughout. Thanks you once again for an outstanding job.
Above and beyond
Jami and myself would like to thank Denise for all her hard work and efforts she put in while selling our townhouse. Although in the beginning no one thought that it would be so hard to sell, as there was no rush. However as time passed and we found a house that had everything we were looking for (location, price, yard and renovation potential), Denise stepped up and was able to sell our townhouse in time for us to successfully buy the house where we hope to be spending the rest of our lives. Again, thanks Denise for going above and beyond, when it mattered the most, as I know that the time you spent doing open houses was well beyond what I expected any realtor to do.
An incredible person
