COMOX VALLEY REAL ESTATE
COMOX VALLEY REALTOR KARIN USIPUIK
Karin Usipuik, Comox Valley Realtor
I’m Karin, Realtor here in the Comox Valley/Campbell River area since 2005. I’ve been selling homes for nearly 20 years!
I’ve learned a lot through my career and always come back to the same “why”. I simply love working with people and helping to navigate through one of the biggest investments you’ll make!
I still do a little happy dance every time my clients sell their home or a new buyer gets the keys to their very first home!
I’m truly humbled when you choose me as your Realtor and my goal has always been to never take that for granted!
I believe in honest, professional service with a friendly, relaxed approach.
“Karin was there for us every step of the way. From helping us sell our home to buying our new one, Karin was there with advice, representing our interests and negotiating on our behalf. Our home search took longer than expected but Karin was always available to look at properties and negotiate offers. We can’t thank her enough for her time, dedication, and professionalism throughout. ”
“Karin’s professionalism, efficiency, warmth and knowledge of the housing market and the Comox Valley (especially since we are new to the area) made the experience of finding a suitable home for our family very low stress! She was always able to answer all of our questions and was very supportive throughout the entire process. We would definitely recommend working with Karin!”
“We recently purchased our dream home in the Comox Valley with Karin. We were in Edmonton at the time and buying a home in a city that you don’t live in presents a whole world of issues. This is why it’s so important to have a really good realtor like Karin. She was so professional & incredibly competent in every single step of the complicated process. The other huge benefit of going with Karin is that she is so well connected in the community and therefore all of the professionals she recommended for the inspections, registrations, etc. were all fantastic! I couldn’t recommend Karin more, she was so caring, knowledgable and hard working. Thank you again!”
Karin was extraordinary at helping us purchase our forever home.We were lucky to enlist her when she was selling a property we happened to look at with another realtor.Her ability to listen, we mean really listen makes a huge difference.She knew what we needed, what we could afford, and it went so well it was like she was buying with us, not for us.Her experience speaks loudly – when it came to making an offer or not, summarizing and showing the advantages and disadvantages, valuing the strata minutes, and especially bargaining with the sellers.
Karin and her assistant Melissa were just excellent in handling all the paper work – a real plus when you’re a bit “internet” challenged!!No high pressure here, just caring support and assistance and a keen observation of the seller’s needs as well as ours as buyers.We were able to purchase under list price and are very happy with the result.After sales, Karin didn’t just disappear – she checks in regularly and was helpful in getting us moved in and settled.She knows the community well, is very involved in the community.Karin is a lovely person with a kindred soul- she enthusiastically cares about her client’s well being.
I am very grateful that thanks to Karin, I sold my home so that I could move closer to my family here on the mainland. They say “you don’t know what you’ve got til it’s gone” reminded me that home is where the heart is.

We absolutely made the right decision to sell and move here but could not have done it without you. Thank you again for all of your help and believing in us and our dreams for an easier lifestyle.

Experience with the Kindred Team
“We have had the pleasure of working with Karin on two purchases over the past six years. The first, a condo at Mount Washington was straightforward but, nonetheless from the time that we started looking to our closing date, Karin was always with us when we needed her.
Three years ago we began *thinking* about a more permanent move to the Comox Valley. Even though we were not quite ready to make the leap from Victoria to the North Island, Karin was always available to show us new listings that she thought we might be interested in.
Fast forward to 2017, Karin helped us find our most perfect home. Her diligence, knowledge and plenty of intuition meant that we were able to move through the buying process with a minimum of concern and a maximum of confidence. We would recommend Karin wholeheartedly. You won’t be disappointed in your realtor by working with her.”
“We had Karin Usipuik for the selling of our home and the buying of our home. Karin was a delight to work with. She was efficient, knowledgeable, and gave us good advice on what decisions to make in both procedures. She was honest and always had our interests at heart. When I contacted her by email she was always prompt at answering any questions we had. No question was too silly or too small for her to answer. She was always there with her cheerful attitude. We had people looking every day & our home sold in 19 days. We were very happy with her and would recommend her to anyone that wants to get into the market today.”
“Exceptional customer service! From booking showings to receiving keys when we purchased our dream home. Every detail was taken care of! It was challenging living far away & not being able to see homes in a hot market. Karin took the time to preview the homes for us. Her extensive knowledge of the Comox Valley was incredible & made us feel comfortable with the area our family would be living in. Her communication skills are bar none. We always felt like we were being taken care of & in the loop. We lucked out with such an amazing realtor!”
“We used Karin in August of 2016 for the purchase of our acreage. Seeing as it was our first time dealing with certain issues related to more rural living she had to help us understand and organize more inspections, etc than normal. She did so very willingly and was always available for last minute questions. It was a quick purchase and subsequently very quick sale of our former home which she also handled for us. Karin is so friendly and helpful, it felt like one of our friends helping us. She even helped me pick out the flooring for our new home! (which looks great by the way). She really made the process of selling AND buying a stress-free and smooth as possible. Would use her again in a heartbeat, except she helped us find our forever home!!! that is the testimonial needed.”
