My husband and I recently bought our first home in the Comox Valley with Jake and Jasmin from Christoph Real Estate. We were looking for just the right home to raise our two small children in. Something big enough to grow in to, but that offered us the exact layout conducive to young children who would one day become much bigger children. Not an easy feat.
Not only were they patient, supportive and easy to deal with, but most importantly they were genuinely concerned about making sure that they found us just the right home for our family. It was never about the "sale" it was ALWAYS about finding us exactly what was going to work for us. Such a large investment can be stressful, scary and down right overwhelming. Both Jake and Jasmen were so amazing to work with. As soon as we started getting anxious over not finding "the" home, or in the end when we were nervous about loosing that "perfect" home, they were right there, supporting, reassuring and calming our hearts. There is something so incredibly special about not just one but two individuals who truly care about their clients and their needs. Someone who went above and beyond to ensure that we got exactly what we were looking for.
We could not be any happier with both our new home and the experience we had with Jake and Jasmen. I would without hesitation refer them to any of my closest friends and family as someone I can trust and rely on. Thank you so much again to you both for everything that you did and have done for us on this journey. It will mean more than you ever know.

We were recomended to Jake from a friend of ours that had just bought a house from him. We told him up front that we weren't motivated to buy, just wanted to see what was out there, not an agent's dream client for sure!
Jake really listened to what we wanted, helping us figure out what we were looking for, never pressuring us into anything, he kept in communication with us consistently and was always available to us when we had questions.
As a first time home buyer, the whole undertaking was initially very intimidating to me. Jake and Jasmen walked us through the whole process making it easy. While I know we have found our home, I would use Jake and Jasmen again in a heartbeat and heartily recommend them to anyone I hear is looking for an agent.

My wife and I are not exactly easy customers....we know that about ourselves. We're pretty demanding. You not only met our needs, you exceeded our expectations every step of the way. You showed us dozens of houses and kept the focus of all your efforts on what WE want, not what you want to sell. And you're the hardest working Real Estate Agent we have ever met. When it came time to negotiate price offers you did your homework for us and got us lots of ammunition, pricing out justifications for our offers so that we ended up getting a price that we think was really fair. And you really know the area well. Thank you for the many referrals to local businesses when we asked. You should really be paid by the Chamber of Commerce!
I'm so glad our credit union loan officer gave us your name. We'll definitely refer you to our friends!You're one person I'm VERY happy to recommend!

We couldn't be more satisfied with Jakob. He has all the attributes of a exceptional Realtor. He is professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. Jakob goes out of his way to make you feel comfortable from finding the listing to the closing and stays involved personally during the entire process. If there is ever a question, you can call him directly and he'll answer the phone or call you right back. We would not hesitate to recommend Jakob Christoph to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling a property and is looking for a really great Realtor.

Jasmen is a fantastic realtor and we definitely recommend her for your real estate services. She is professional, knowledgable and best of all available. She provided feedback after viewings very promptly. We listed with her knowing the market at the time was saturated and slow, we found we had nothing but confidence in her and the team. Jasmen was able to sell our house quickly and efficiently, especially considering the market condition. I can't say how much we appreciated her hard work, professionalism, her personality and most of all, the fact she SOLD our house!

We had the pleasure of buying our first home this year and we chose Jakob to be our realtor, we are sure glad we did! Jake was really great to work with, he always made time for us, listened to what we want and showed us houses accordingly. We had a blast checking out houses together and found Jake had a wealth of knowledge and a keen eye for possible issues. He was also masterful at negotiating on our behalf, we got everything we wanted.
Throughout the whole process we felt very comfortable and taken care of. We now recommend Jakob to anybody that will listen.

Jasmen is a fantastic agent and one of the loveliest people you will ever meet. She knows The Comox Valley's demographics exceedingly well - trust her wildcard properties!
We met Jas when we moved here in 2010; we picked our first house before we had our little girl. Once she was born we realised we weren't where we wanted to be... Jas is so good at knowing her clients that she found us our perfect home! She will find you your perfect home too, I promise! She is also a renovation pro with lots of good connections so don’t be scared of a fix-er-upper, and with her interior design expertise you can ask her your design questions too! I highly recommend both Jasmen and her team!

Thank you Jasmen!! It's been such a pleasure working with you to first buy our dream home, and then buy my first business!! You've made the process so painless...your sunny attitude and patience is something we really appreciate.

Working with Jakob to sell our home and then buy a hobby farm was a great experience for us. He made us feel good about our house and used a professional photographer to give our listing a wow factor. He is tech savvy and uses refreshing and creative marketing tools. Our home sold in 5 days at a price we were happy with. Jakob trudged through acres of farmland with us, found out answers to all of our questions and most of all, he listened to what we wanted.
Within days of selling our house, Jakob completed a great deal for us on ‘our piece of paradise’. The Christoph Realty Group genuinely cares about you and your family. They won’t miss one single detail and they will become your friends.

The level of communication that Jakob provided was excellent. There was never a moment where we sat waiting, or wondered what was next. The negotiation process was smooth and painless. We never felt rushed or unsure of what we should do. The pictures taken were absolutely beautiful – our house was advertised in the best way possible. I could never imagine selling privately – the use of advertising and the support and skills are well worth every cent on Realtor fees. We highly recommend Christoph Realtor Group to everyone we know. Jasmen and Jakob’s service and skills are top notch!

We recently listed our Patio Home with Jasmen and Jakob. After our original consultation we were very pleased with the research that was done before we agreed upon our original asking price. The information was presented in a deliberate, comprehensive manner that was easy to understand. The property was marketed very professionally with great photographs and information being available to any potential buyers. They were very good at letting us know when the showings were and supplied us feedback afterwards.
When we received an offer, they followed our instructions and helped us achieve a fair price for our home. The paperwork was handled very well, and the transfer came and went without any issues.
We appreciate the energy and time that both Jakob and Jasmen spent on our listing. It is inherently obvious that they have a passion for their business and they bring a great deal a value to their clients. We will most certainly recommend and refer them to anyone who is looking for their services.

Jake and Jasmen were so great to work with. They were always available and ready to answer all our questions. They were patient with the whole process for us, and the many trials and errors along the way before we found our dream property. They helped us sell our home with ease, and guided us professionally through a purchase. We highly recommend them and will do so to all our friends!!
