Jane Johnston M.Ed PREC
4440 Chatterton Way
Jane was recommended to us by our realtor in Ottawa. While we had been making plans to move to Victoria, we had not begun looking seriously for a new home. When an MLS listing caught our attention, we contacted Jane. She worked very quickly and within a couple of hours, she was giving us a very thorough virtual tour. We were quickly convinced that this was the house for us. There was other interest in this property and Jane spent her weekend writing up our offer, arranging an inspection and connecting us with a mortgage specialist. Jane's professionalism, knowledge of the real estate market and experience were crucial in our securing our new home. We would have no hesitation about recommending Jane to anyone in need of real estate advice.

Jane was responsive, insightful and just plain fun to work with when we sold our townhouse and purchased a single-family home. The advice she offered before listing our place was invaluable and resulted in positive feedback from all showings, and ultimately a number of offers, and a quick sale. On the buying side, she provided a resourceful step-by-step guide to ensure all our required inspections, insurance, etc. were in place so conditions could be removed quickly and easily, and nothing fell through the cracks. She was always available to answer any questions that arose, and her relationships with other realtors, based on her reputation from being in the biz for many years, added to a very positive selling and buying experience. Highly recommend Jane and her team!

Can’t express how much I appreciate Jane! Patience, kindness, and a sense of humour… exactly what was needed to help me buy my new home from out of town and with a quick possession date!! Highly recommend Jane to anyone seeking to buy or sell their home.

“Have you ever had to close your eyes, be led by the hand, and have complete trust in the person guiding you? It is most definitely a scary feeling and not something you would want to do with just anyone. But Jane Johnston is not just anyone. Jane is an outstanding realtor that I have learned to have implicit trust in. Jane was able to set a price on our home in a declining market and receive multiple offers over asking. For this to happen I had to trust Jane’s strategy and just go with it. Jane has proven herself repeatedly as the realtor for our family and has led us through several highly successful transactions and for that we are most grateful.”
Kathleen - Victoria
“Working with Jane was awesome. She is knowledgeable, professional, friendly and above all gives honest feedback on properties. When it came time to compete, she was a calming presence to help me navigate the path forward and secure the condo I really wanted. I will 100% use Jane again when it comes time and will be referring friends and family who are buying in the greater Victoria Area. Thank you Jane!”
Anthony McLachlan - Langford
“Jane and her team exceeded all expectations! In such a fast-moving market her experience and steady hand was the most valuable asset. The strategy she recommended for pricing, timing, and staging helped attract multiple offers, all significantly above my asking price. Her expertise allowed us to have the most advantageous position to negotiate, ultimately resulting in the perfect offer! I am thrilled with the result and I am grateful for Jane and her guidance. The importance of a trusted professional, especially in such competitive times, cannot be overstated and Jane was this and more for me! I would absolutely recommend working with Jane and her team.”
Evan Girard - Langford
“Jane helped us to buy our first condo. We really appreciated how level headed and considered she was throughout the process. She was super prompt at replying to our messages and always ready to arrange a viewing. While the experience of buying property can be stressful, we were happy to trust Jane throughout the process!”
Hannah and Chris Griffiths - Victoria
"We are so thankful for the opportunity to work with Jane to buy our first home. We were amazed at how quickly she set up viewings (we were always one of the first people in) and replied to our questions at all hours of the day! We really valued her opinion on the homes we viewed and could tell immediately how knowledgeable she was on what to look for in a home. She made us feel like we were her only clients! We will 100% be using Jane in the future when we decide to move again."
Deborah & Isaac
"Jane is a goddess realtor! My entire experience with Jane, from first phone call to occupancy, was positive and delightful. Jane inspires confidence through her honest, friendly, pragmatic approach. Every query, every concern I had, Jane addressed directly and resolved immediately. She is professional and conscientious—not wasting anyone’s time—but generous and warm, and fun! Without question, I felt I could trust Jane and rely on her real estate expertise. She quickly understood my property preference and taste, and worked specifically to help me find the right place. I highly recommend Jane for anyone looking to buy or sell property in Victoria. The experience will be rewarding.”
Juliet Kershaw - Victoria
“When it was time to sell my condo I needed to find a good agent. A close friend referred me to Jane Johnston. I knew right away, when I met with Jane for the first time that she was special. She really knows the market, listened to my needs, and provided sound advice. As a Realtor she assisted me with the purchase and sale of my last 2 condo's and recently the purchase of a house.
I highly recommend Jane. She is the best.”
Luc Allard - Saanich
"We are so happy with the service we received from Jane as a realtor. She is very knowledgeable and experienced, extremely patient and respectful of your needs, and a genuinely nice person to work with through a very demanding process. In a challenging market that was scary to enter as first time home-buyers, Jane made navigating all the details that much easier. We would not hesitate to recommend Jane to others and to use her services again in the future. Thank you so much Jane! We love our new place!!”
MacKenzie & Greer - Esquimalt
“You want the best person possible to help you when dealing with real estate. They should be kind, professional & smart: someone willing to work with you and who gets things done. Jane Johnson is all of that and more. And she is a top agent in Victoria. Trust her advice. I did & reaped the rewards.”
Rick Monks - Victoria
“So nice to work with such a courteous and competent professional. Thank you Jane, and team, for a job very well done.”
Simon - North Saanich
“Jane has now helped me with two rounds of real estate transactions (buying and selling twice in four years). I am so grateful for her depth of knowledge of the real estate market and her sage advice. Buying and selling a home is a nerve- wracking process at the best of times, not to mention doing this in the midst of big life changes and a very challenging market, but Jane helped me navigate all the ins and outs (and ups and downs) so patiently and supportively. Jane and her team are very efficient, thorough, and responsive. I recommend Jane highly to anyone who wants a true professional in their corner when navigating the housing market.”
Susan Low - Saanich
“We were very fortunate to have Jane recently help us to find our new home in a very competitive market. It was challenging as we were currently living in the Interior of B.C. making the house search across the distance even more complicated. Jane was excellent in providing prompt feedback to many of our questions and being readily available for any assistance needed in our search. Jane was extremely knowledgeable regarding the current market guiding us each step of the way. We would highly recommend Jane when searching for your new home.”
Susanne and Michel - Central Saanich
"In moving from Toronto to Victoria we left behind an established realtor- friendship of some fifteen years, and therefore a hard act to follow! Nevertheless, Jane rose to the challenge and exceeded our expectations. She quickly established herself as a 'trusted advisor' and eased us into the market with local insights and sage advice. She is patient and solicitous - and although she is clearly in-demand and busy - we always felt like her #1 priority. Carol and I would happily recommend Jane to anyone. Importantly, she's a genuine person and fun and easy to do business with."
Gavin and Carol
“It was a pleasure to work with Jane Johnston. We became aware of her work through her informative and engaging youtube videos. As new Victoria transplants from Toronto, we were delighted to know that she used to live where we're arriving from. She's warm, easy to communicate with and patiently matched our sense of urgency. We were lucky and able to secure our new home just a few days after starting our work together. We're so happy to start our new life on the island. Thank you, Jane and your awesome team, for such a pleasant time and successful deal!”
Charm & Yeemi
“We’d like to express our thanks and appreciation to Jane Johnston. Besides keeping us laughing and calm, Jane was a pillar of patience as we dragged her all over the Saanich Peninsula. Having renovated so much for herself, she is able to see problems and fixes the rest of us don’t notice. Her sage advice kept us from making mistakes and in the end, we got a beautiful home in the perfect neighbourhood. Thank you Jane. It was more than a pleasure working with you! I hope we do it again!”
Cynthia and Diran
“Jane was recommended to us through a mutual friend when we were looking to move. She helped us purchase a beautiful home in our preferred neighbourhood in a highly competitive market. And then brilliantly managed the sale of our existing home in one day!"
Tim and Holly - Colwood
“Jane was a treat! She made every showing informative and relaxed, answering questions easily and honestly, whether about this particular apartment or real estate in general."
"When my husband's new job moved us from Toronto to Victoria we were fortunate to have a family friend recommend we contact Jane for our real estate needs. Jane was fabulous and a joy to work with, first over the phone and then email, finally culminating in an in-person whirlwind house hunting trip over Canada Day. Jane is very thorough and professional, and has deep insights into neighbourhoods, schools and communities that is invaluable to newer Victorians. We found our dream home and she helped us negotiate and walked us through the home-buying process from across the country. I wouldn't hesitate to refer Jane to anyone looking to make a move either to, or within, the Island."
January and Michael ~ Langford
"We feel so lucky to have called Jane for help when we decided to move from our house into independent living. Jane listed and managed the sale of our home while we were in isolation because of Covid 19. She did this in two days for more than the asking price. We have advised all our friends of how much we appreciate her good sense, hard work and friendliness."
Bud and Faith Stanley.
“Working with Jane has been a real pleasure. She’s very prompt with her responses, encouraging when the chips were down, and open and honest in working though decisions with us. And her knowledge of the Victoria area is second to none! We’ve already recommended her to friends and colleagues.”
Jake & Adam
“Jane was referred to me be a friend and she was just amazing! When we were looking at different places, she was able to point out the pros and cons that I was missing because she paid attention to what I was looking for. Great experience, great realtor!”
