We had an outstanding experience with Bente and her partners at RE/MAX. Bente was the consummate professional; always willing to help, and if she was unable to help us (which was rare), she would guide us in the right direction. Our situation was especially unique, because we live 3,000 miles away from the property we were trying to sell. We put our property up for sale in a down-market, and it sold in 3 months at our asking price! In short, Bente is pleasant, respectful and works hard for her clients. - Kees and Lia Verkade
Bente did an exceptional job selling our house. She was tireless, diligent and conscientious about marketing our property with no challenge too big for her. Bente is a great listener and skilled negotiator, she was responsive to situations as they came up. Her knowledge, dedication and dependability are what put her above the rest. We can recommend Bente Pilgaard to any buyer/seller, she really worked hard on our behalf from day one and throughout. - Lorne J. Hofseth, Ph.D.
Working with Bente Pilgaard was easy and a pleasure… She was very thorough, often answering questions I didn’t even know to ask. I was very thankful that she could always provide me with an answer when I needed it, often within minutes of a text or email… her steady and consistent availability and depth of knowledge made the mysteries of Island property buying a very easy process. From start to finish, a period of about 6 months, I felt the benefits of a caring and professional real estate agent. And now as a Denman resident, I have a resource in Bente Pilgaard as well as a friend. - Evan Penner
Bente was a pleasure to work with. She made many helpful suggestions and looked after details beyond the call of duty. She was completely professional and pleasant in all aspects. For Bente, there are no problems, only solutions, and she really does go the extra mile to make certain that things work for everyone. Thank you for all that you did to achieve a successful outcome! - Dawn Stofer

ABOUT HORNBY ISLAND
Hornby Island is located at the northern end of the Strait of Georgia, a geo-climatic zone of lower precipitation, protection from Pacific winter storms, and a longer growing season for the garden enthusiast.
The beauty of the natural environment of Hornby has earned it the moniker “Hawaii of the North” while also contributing to the ecological and real estate values of this gem of an island. Natural grasslands, rich in rare wildflowers, are found in rocky, exposed areas near the shoreline and above the coastal bluffs.
