Sarah Williamson

Since 2006, Sarah has been dedicated to representing buyers and sellers in the Greater Victoria area for over 18 years. Throughout this period, she has focused on assisting clients in navigating the dynamic real estate market with confidence, always prioritizing their needs. Sarah values each client's priorities and has extensive experience, particularly with those requiring real-time interactive video showings, a service appreciated by clients unable to be physically present in town.

Having collaborated with various out-of-town clients, including those undergoing military transfers and RCMP relocations (BGRS clients), Sarah emphasizes initiating the process before clients' physical presence. In the midst of the current market adjustments, she underscores the significance of experience, knowledge, and a sincere commitment to ensuring a smooth and stress-free move.

Beyond real estate endeavors, Sarah channels her passion into supporting women and children facing domestic violence across Canada. Actively involved with the Royal Lepage Shelter Foundation, she has undertaken two Treks for Shelter, enduring challenging hikes covering 100km while camping in tents and facing ever-changing climates. This commitment aims to raise awareness and funds for the crucial cause.

Despite a busy schedule, Sarah remains open to discussions about real estate and how she can assist individuals with their specific real estate needs.


What does "home" mean to you?

Home is the place that I can kick my shoes off and relax.

Why do you love helping people find/sell their home?

Helping people is a big part of my nature, in my personal life as well as my professional life. For many years, I volunteered as a counsellor, and I came to understand the power of listening. I believe you get what you give, and I find it incredibly rewarding to help people to feel that they have been heard and taken care of.

Why did you decide to become a realtor?

I have always loved helping people – I spent many years in the hospitality. I also worked as a bookkeeper. I have a hard time sitting still, and working a 9-5 desk job is not exactly my cup of tea. I realize that my personality wasn’t well-suited to being a bookkeeper, but it did help me to develop a keen attention to detail and the discipline to complete every task from start to finish. Both these skills are helpful in real estate, as every transaction has many steps to complete. My clients know they are in good hands as I take the time to dot every “i” and cross every “t”. Being a realtor gives me the freedom to set my own hours, and help my clients in the times that are most convenient for them.

Why do you love living in the South Island area?

Whenever I can, I love to spend time outdoors. The tip of South Island is so unique because wehave so many ways to access the water. Almost everywhere you go, you are never more than a few minutes from the ocean – the Strait of Juan de Fuca and the Salish Sea, plus inland waterways like the Inner Harbour or the Gorge. We also have gorgeous lakes, surrounded by walking trails. Plus, we have all the amenities of living in a big city without the busy-ness and noise.

How would you describe your clients?

I love getting to know my clients and getting a clear idea of what their perfect property looks and feels like. I have lots of energy, and I am always excited to view properties that my clients express an interest in. I am not afraid of sharing my opinions and ideas, so I love working with clients who are open-minded. I work well with people who are going through life changes, like retirees and empty-nesters who are craving a new home to get a fresh start.

What does an ideal day off look like for you?

When I let myself take some time off, I love to get away on a holiday – some place warm where I can relax. On my rare days off, I love to get my body moving in the morning – maybe going on a hike, getting a workout at the gym, or taking a yoga class. The rest of the day, I would spend time with friends, maybe over dinner. Spending time with my son is always a big priority too.
