Testimonials

Take a moment to read through our Testimonials from our fabulous clients. If you have been thinking of Buying or Selling a home, contact us and we'd be happy to help. We service Terrace, BC and the surrounding area.



Shannon was great to work with buying our home. She was patient, understanding and knowledgeable, and helped us buy the right home for us. It wasn't about commissions, or how many houses a realtor can sell, but the quality of service and finding the right home for our family that was important to Terrace Real Estate Co. We never write testimonials but this time the service we received was exceptional and felt the need to share our experience. We would recommend Shannon to anyone wanting to purchase or sell realty in the Terrace area.

— Jason and Isabel Majore


It has been our pleasure to have Shannon as our selling agent during a prolonged slow market. She was well prepared with her research and presentation and kept us informed with the feedback from every showing, good or bad. Having the feedback allowed us to know the market better and to better fine tune our expectations. We would definitely recommend Shannon for your consideration in selecting a realtor.

I want to write a review about our Realtor Shannon McAllister. Shannon has been the best realtor that my husband and I have ever worked with. From the beginning, she listened to what we wanted, she was attentive, knowledgeable, caring, prompt and really cared about the sale of our home. Unlike other realtors, she didn't stop answering our questions once our house was sold, she has been there every step of the way. I would highly recommend Shannon if you are looking to buy or sell a house!!

— James Rosenthal/ Jamie Lewison


Jim, We cannot thank you enough for all the time invested in helping us purchase our new home. From the first time we phoned to the time we got the keys, you were prompt, friendly and communicative. Whether it was taking the time to answer our questions or trudge across the property in search of property pins, there was never any wavering in your optimistic attitude that things would be OK, and for that assurance we are very grateful! First time home ownership is a stressful ordeal, but I would recommend you to anyone as you made the transition as seamless as possible for us. Thanks again, and especially for the welcome basket which was a delight on a stressful ( closing ) day!

— Tara Engdahl & Jesse Friesen


To Shannon, Thank you for making the process of purchasing our first home not difficult. We really appreciated your guidance through it all. Having your positive attitude was a light at the end of our tunnel. We hope to deal with you again one day ( But hopefully not TOO soon as we love our new home! :)

— Emily Botelho and Travis Reierson


To potential customers of Shannon, I bought a rental house in Terrace through Shannon five years ago and now just sold the same property through her again at the full listing price in less than one month since listing. Shannon impressed me with her positive attitude and upfront openness in negotiation when I purchased the little house in Terrace five years ago. By then I was already decided to sell it with Shannon's help in the future. I phoned Shannon and sought for suggestions for selling the house about one year ago. She gave me some practical tips such as fixing the old roof, which I followed. I finally decided to sell the house near the end of April 2013 and called Shannon right away. I did not even bother to look for other agents since the decision was already made five years ago. She came up with a detailed market analysis and proposed a fair listing price which coincidently hit my targeting selling price. I quickly accepted her proposal and the ball started rolling. Within the first week of listing, one offer was accepted at the full listing price. Shannon showed her professionalism and skill in handling a few amendments in finalizing the deal. I am very much satisfied with the professional services Shannon had rendered over my buying and even more selling processes. I really enjoyed my real estate investment experiences in Terrace. I am certain that nobody will regret to work with Shannon on real estate business.

Dear Shannon, This is a big thank you for adding TDCSS Big Brothers Big Sisters of Terrace to your list of organizations to benefit form your "Give Back" program. What a unique idea and very generous on your part. We are appreciative to have received the $200.00 donation, which will really help as we are working on expanding our program to serve more children in our community.

— Monica Watson - Coordinator


My family and I had the opportunity to work with Helena Samzadeh after she was referred to us by a colleague at work. I remember thinking after our first conversation and email thread "wow, this girl is on the ball". And that was exactly how she was. Helena was organized, thoughtful and knew the real estate market well. She understood exactly what our needs were and ensured that the listings we viewed were within the parameters that we had given her. She has a great personality and was a joy to work with - I would recommend her again to anyone that I know.

— Nina P


Thanks for everything Shannon, we’re sure glad we listed with you and the Terrace Real Estate Company. This is the third time you’ve come through for us (twice as sellers and once as buyers) and we’ll be sure to recommend you to our friends and family. Thanks for the donation in our name, that is so awesome of you.

— Mark and Corina Cleveland


Hi Shannon, ​I was very excited to see the $400 donation to Jumpstart ( donation was made on behalf of the Terrace Real Estate Company's clients - Ross Neggers and Colleen Townsend ). We really appreciate it and want to let you know the the money stays right here to help local kids get into sports. I think its terrific that you think of the local charities to donate to. On behalf of the Terrace Jumpstart chapter and the kids that you have helped, a sincere thank you.

Hi Shannon, I'm sorry we took so long to send you this, but life has been busy. We have personally moved most of our office to town as well as some furniture etc. We wanted you to know that we are very happy with our new place and that we are thoroughly enjoying it. It is the perfect place for us! My experiences with Realtors haven't always been the best, but you, Shannon, went above and beyond with your patience in showing us all the properties. We will recommend you to anyone who needs a real estate agent and tell them you were very caring and professional. We are also really enjoying your generous basket. We are still planning an open house in a month or two, and we will be sure to be in touch with you as to the date. Best wishes, and thanks again for everything.

Show me the height I have to climb; the deep I have to rise from; young, vibrant, modern, very competent, yet with honesty, integrity, and a surprising "mother hen" attitude - that is Shannon McAllister, owner, CEO and employee of the Terrace Real Estate Company. I experienced all of it as her client and even enjoyed it amidst the difficult situation of selling a beloved home. Thank you, Shannon.

— H. Miserre


Hi Shannon, Just wanted to thank you for your time, patience and understanding with the sale of my home and the purchase of my new property. You definitely go above and beyond as the saying goes. I will and have recommended you to anyone who asks about who I had for a real estate agent. I have spread the word to anyone who will listen how professional and caring you are in getting the job done right. Shannon you rock!!! It was a pleasure having you on my side. Thanks so much

— Heather Kroeker


Dear Shannon: Morris and I would like to thank you for your high level of professionalism and dedication throughout the entire process of selling our home. When you first came to us with a well thought out, full presentation and were willing to spend all the time needed to answer all of our questions, we knew we had found the right person for the job. You were always available for us whenever we had questions and you went out of your way to make sure we had feedback for every showing. We certainly appreciated the level of effort you put in to selling our home, particularly when we had listed it in a less productive time of year. The fact that you also made a donation to a charity of our choice when our home sold was just an extra little element that showed commitment to your community. We thought it was a very nice touch. Thank you so much for being a fantastic Realtor to work with. We would recommend you and your company to anyone looking to sell their home.

— Morris and Nicole Shaw


Hi Shannon, On behalf of my parents and myself I want to thank you so very much for your patience and utmost professionalism in taking care of every last detail of my parents’ home sale. It was a very crazy ride with all the unexpected things that came up but you walked us through it and we could not have done it without you. You were beyond Patient and generous and for that I have to say the experience was really great! Thank you again so much. We highly recommend you to anyone in the Terrace area that is buying or selling a home they will not be disappointed!!

— Judy, Peter and Solonge Mangnus


Hello Shannon, Thank you for all your help through this process. It has been a trying one indeed but it was made that little bit more easy when we signed and entrusted you to help us. Terrace is very fortunate to have such a professional, caring and truly understanding Realtor amongst their midst. You do make a difference : )

— Tammy and Seth McLean

Dear Shannon: On behalf of the Mills Memorial Hospital Auxilary members, I would like to express our appreciation for the donation of $200.00 we received from your office. What a kind gesture, and a wonderful way to donate to charities! We are thankful to Dolores Kuechle for choosing our auxilary, and as you know, the money will go towards equipment and comfort items for the patients of Mills Memorial Hospital and the residents of Terrace View Lodge. I am sure that word of this kind gesture will spread through our community and you will be recognized for your generosity THANKS!!

Shannon, We have sold and purchased many homes over the past 36 years and this is the first time we have felt the need to let everyone know that our choice of Realtor was perfect. We would highly recommend Shannon McAllister to anyone wishing to sell or buy a house. She is a true professional who pays great attention to every detail of selling and buying a home. Her sense of humour makes her a delight to deal with and on top of that she takes the best photos of any Realtor we have ever used. She is thoughtful, kind and generous and the donation made on our behalf to an organization of our choosing was fantastic. On top of all that her office staff greets you with a smile on entering the office and are helpful and pleasant to deal with.

— Yvonne and Gerry Danroth

Thank you so much Shannon!!! We are so excited and ready to get moving and begin our new life in sunny Kamloops. We are both grateful for all your help with selling our house as we could not have done it without you. All your advice and encouraging words throughout this process is truly appreciated.After living in Terrace the majority of our lives moving still does not seem real. I'm hoping that seeing that SOLD sign will do the trick. LOL. Have a great weekend :)

— Barb and Paul Basanti


Shannon, We’d like to express our sincere gratitude for all your help in purchasing our very first home. You treated us like we were your top clients and took care of everything. You were always saying "leave it with me", therefore we didn’t have to worry about practically anything. Although the home we purchased was not in top condition on the closing date, you reassured us by arranging clean-up and even literally jumping in on your hands and knees to help us with the mess. We know what you did was over and beyond what any realtor would normally do, and we want you to know how thankful we are. PS. Thanks for the awesome basket!

— Bridgette Watts and Sheldon Dennis


Shannon, Thanks sooooo much for your help in finding us our beautiful, perfect home! And thank you so much for the wonderful house warming basket with all of the great goodies!!! We really appreciate all that you have done for us and hope to see you again soon in Wal-mart or elsewhere!

— Melanie, Matt, Macy and Finn Moore


Hi Shannon, Thank you so much for everything! Though this wasn’t a "big sale", I feel you treated me excellently and also taught me a great deal about how to be treated and what to expect when purchasing or selling real estate and /or homes. May god bless you with lots of sales and great commissions!

— Shirley L. Buck


Hi Shannon, I’m finally getting around to sending a formal thank-you for the excellent job you did for us. Your professionalism combined with your family oriented approach has resulted in us finding the house of our dreams. It took time and thankfully you kept our goals in mind when we were about ready to settle for less. And, to cap it off, we got such a great price for the house we sold and the one we bought, that we’re finishing the basement! Best of luck - you are a wonderful person and an absolutely incredible Real Estate Agent.

— Steve, Patsy and Taylor Chant


Thank you so much for selling our home. You were awesome. We will keep in touch and let you know when we find a place. Thank you with sincere appreciation.

— Mark and Diana Bergey
