About two months ago, I asked Chris Fenton, if someone on their team could help me find a home for my sister, who lives on the lower mainland. I know Chris because he is a former member of the board of directors at Sage Haven Society - my workplace. Chris kindly connected me to Esther Fenton.
Esther contacted me right away. I laid out the criteria and the search was on. We went through a number of properties in Alberni Valley. During each site visit, I sent pics and a short video of the home and surrounding property to my sister.
Within a very short time, my sister decided on a home, without coming to check the it out in person. It turned out that she wanted the very first house that Esther and I looked through.
Esther was a pleasure to work with. She was thorough and followed up on everything we talked about. If I ever need to purchase another home, I'll call Esther for sure.
We have both Purchased and Sold houses with The Fenton Group. Esther and Vittoria are extremely professional, and down to earth, and met our every need and want. I would recommend them to friends and Family without hesitation. I feel honored to be the 100 Review for such a Great realtor Group!
My Family is going to Love the New House!
Esther was a dream to work with! She is so knowledgeable, professional and approachable. She is a fantastic listener and I honestly feel that she is the Fairy Godmother of Realtors as she has a knack for knowing what you want and need before you even do! Esther and her positive attitude made buying our first home an enjoyable adventure. We will always be grateful to Esther and recommend her heartily!
We just wanted to thank Esther and the entire Fenton Group for making our first home purchase happen. Esther was professional, honest and helped us through the entire process step by step. We would not hesitate to recommend The Fenton Group and would gladly work with them for real-estate assistance again in the future.
If I could rate Esther Fenton with ten stars, I would! Her personal warmth combined with professional dedication can’t be told in a few words, and our gratitude is limitless. Port Alberni is fortunate to have Esther as a member on The Fenton Group! They get results!
First Class service by Esther Fenton and Nicole Dabney. Professional, helpful, calm, nowledgeable, caring and organized. We started our process for information a few months before we came out to look. We never felt any pressure from them.We advised on what we were looking for exactly. They followed our wishes exactly. We were also sent useful videos about the area. Highly recommend this group.
I just worked with Esther from The Fenton Group. I was seriously impressed with her speed, professionalism and knowledge. I would recommend her services and I will continue to work with her in the future.

Esther is great to work with! I am planning a move from the lower mainland to the island, and it was stressful to try and organize viewing homes while living in a different city. I planned a 4-day trip and Esther made herself available to me, answering the many questions I had, and providing a helpful, detailed information package. She helped me learn about the different neighbourhoods since I wasn’t familiar with the area. Esther has a lot of experience and it shows; she gave me tips for making a successful offer but never pressured me to go in one direction over another. I felt supported in any direction I chose to go. In the end I got very lucky and purchased my home on that first trip out! Very happy with how it went!
Highly recommended. Prompt, reliable, knowledgeable, and accommodating. The services provided by Esther and The Fenton Group extended way beyond the usual property showings and contracts/negotiations. As an out-of-town purchaser, arranging inspectors, contractors, tenant viewings, insurance and other misc. things can be very time consuming. Not only did they guide me through the process, but they provided me with reputable contacts for other services I required. More impressively, they offered to handle many of the extras for me - long after the close. Throughout my indecisiveness, I never once felt pressured, and I cannot thank them enough for going above and beyond the usual call of duty. Esther’s work ethic is impeccable, and she is a trustworthy, skillful negotiator who gets results.
Esther was a tremendous help. Being a first-time home buyer it was stressful not knowing all the steps to go through and which houses would suit me. Esther made this as painless as possible but was there for any questions I had a long way. Infact I don't even know what her voicemail sounds like, she always answers!
Just over one year, and I've had the pleasure of working with Chris Fenton
Chris knew I was on the fence about selling, but offered to do a free presentation on the current market value assessment and walk me through what his process of selling my home would look like.
Every time a situation arose that was difficult, he laid out both the pros and cons of each option, and then told me his advice. Not once did he push me to any one choice, a true testimonial to his honesty.
If I ever decide to buy or sell within the Alberni Valley or Sunshine coast, I'll definitely be working with him!
Esther Fenton was a wonderful buying agent, extremely helpful, always available, worked very hard on our purchase. I Could not have asked for a better agent/person to help us buy our house and had our best interest in her mind.
Esther sought out a house that best matched what we had described to her and brought us the houses as they came on the market. This market was very fast moving and she kept us up to it. When a problem arose she worked diligently to fix it and took the time to explain it so that we fully understood.
Esther was amazing helping us navigate buying our first home! We came from a more competitive market that we had been priced out of, and were feeling burnt out about the buying process. Esther made everything easy, organized all sorts of viewings, as well as a detailed list of all the houses within out price range she wasn't showing us and why.
We ended up getting out home within a month of working with her, and couldn't be happier!
When you need a real estate agent that goes above and beyond, give Esther Fenton a call. She is not only professional, efficient, and always available but throughly understands the market. Esther is by our side and supports you every step of the way.
Since we were new in Port Alberni, even after we bought our home, she continued to helped us to settle in our new environment. How great is that!
Esther's expertise and understanding of a complex situation made it possible for my nephew, a first time home buyer, to get the perfect home for a family of five.
I absolutely loved my experience of working with Esther Fenton. She is a highly qualified professional , skilled, insightful, not pushy , responsive, and has a lovely human demeanour . I feel very blessed to have had her as my real estate agent and recommend her in a heart beat!

Top service, Esther is the very best!
Couldnt be happier with the whole Fenton Group. They made our dream home a reality with a fast sale of our home to a smooth transition to the new one. Highly recommend them to anyone
I was looking at properties in Port Alberni and Esther Fenton was a joy to work with. She is very knowledgeable about the area and really takes the time to understand my needs as a buyer. When it comes to buying in Port Alberni, Esther should be your first call.
Esther Fenton is a very helpful, personable, and honest realtor. She was my buying agent for my recent purchase of a private listing in Port Alberni. She was so keen to help find the perfect home that suited my needs. Esther explained everything about the purchase and was always there to answer questions. I highly recommend her.
The Fenton Team helped us sell our house at Sproat Lake and purchase a property in Port Alberni. Chris Fenton, Esther Fenton and the whole group were a pleasure to deal with and I would highly recommend The Fenton Group!!!
Esther was/is amazing in helping us find a home. She wrote up about 8 offers before we finally got a home! Worked into the evening and on the weekends to make sure everything worked out for us. Our phone conversations are always lovely, personable, and informative. We are so happy to have found Esther and will/would work will her again!
Consistent excellent service. A group that goes above and beyond every time. We should know, we've bought 3 houses with them and our friends combined have bought 3 as well! The top real estate group!
I would highly recommend The Fenton Group. I had the pleasure of working with Chris and Esther recently. The professional service they offered was very appreciated. As a first time home seller, I really appreciated their patience, advice and quick communication responses. The marketing and networking systems they have in place are outstanding. Thank you for selling my home. I look forward to working with you again in the future. I also need to thank their amazing staff...Thanks Tracey!!!
Service is outstanding, respones too fast they never sleep it seems. We were so impressed with the slide show that shows a view of all the rooms downward as if you had no roof, really neat.
Lots of showings, multiple offers was nice to get what we were happy with $900 less than asking price and some offers were even 5k more
Very proffesional service from Tracey booking viewings, Chris and Esther doing open house.
We tryed at first to sell on our own, but didnt work, we were uncomfortable showing it ourselves and potential buyers seem to like viewing better with a realtor without owners being present.
We highly recommend this realty company.
Happy to share my experience in purchasing a house in Port Alberni with help of Esther (from searching, negotiation with seller, legal & financial processes and after purchasing even maintenance of the house!) with you. And hope this could be helpful for you.
Mine was a very long distance purchasing. Also I don't have family here close me to rely on during the whole process. Then, Esther, from the beginning, helped me not only professionally but also so naturally warm and friendly. I trust her!
Now all processes have done and I am looking back. It was so smooth and I am satisfied with everything.
The personalized and professional services we received working with the Fenton team was second to none. We worked with Chris and Esther in two very different markets, and they ensured we were informed about every aspect of how changing markets impact not only the sale of a house, but the purchase of a new one. We have an incredibly busy family with high needs children, and the entire Fenton Team were supportive, patient and kind, and they helped us transition to a new home with as little impact to our children as possible. I would recommend the Fenton Team to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the Alberni Valley, and look forward to working with them again should we need to venture into the real estate world again.
I can't thank Esther enough for the methodical and caring service she provided during our search for the perfect home here in Port Alberni. So informative and with amazing precision we were shown numerous properties we could call home, and with such short notice. The Fenton Group made locating, buying and finalizing our purchase so easy and seamless that I'm still wondering how my dreams came true so quickly and painlessly. Thank you all so much.

Chris & Esther sold our multi family much faster and for more money than we thought we could get. Thank you!
My wife and I both recommend The Fenton Group!
