Thanks for Taking us on!
We were very happy dealing with DK Rice for a home purchase in Invermere. We came from Calgary over several weeks to view properties and DK was just great to work with. She seemed like she was always available around our time lines and got us into the homes we wanted to see, sometimes with very short notice. Her local knowledge is excellent. What is even more impressive is the after sale service we received. She supplied a list of trades people, banks, lawyers etc. and she actually helped make and keep the appointments as we were dealing from out of town. We hired one of the lawyers she recommended, and were happy with them, also the Inspection person she recommended - that kind of service is invaluable. She is still helping us! Thanks again

Have a great day.
Peter and Jean Saunders, Indian Beach
Thanks DK for all your hard work. Told the realtor office in Kelowna that you were a great realtor. You are on the ball girl. Thanks for doing all that for us.

We have had the pleasure of working with DK Rice now on our third residential sale in The Valley. As owners of a large Calgary corporation we understand the importance and value of customer service, professionalism and results! DK Rice delivers on all! Team Rice has done nothing but exceed our service expectation and we would highly recommend and endorse DK Rice as the realtor of choice in Invermere and surrounding areas! Go Team Rice!

Just want to comment on your real estate expo in Invermere this last Saturday. Was extremely pleased that I made the trip down. Was able to meet with some of the local builders and had a lot of my questions answered. Was so impressed by one of them that I will use him for my main contractor on the project. Very pleased that you held an event such as this! Enjoy your updates on the real estate market in the Columbia Valley. Keep up the great work!
Rob & Linda Kowalski
Thank you for your kind words DK
Finally... and you were right, 3rd time lucky!
Yes we do have some peace, now that the property is sold and settled.
Thank you so much DK and it has been a real pleasure to work with you DK and your team at Royal Lepage.

We recently sold our Invermere home with the assistance of Team Rice. Right from the initial meeting until the deal was done they were prompt, friendly, and professional. We were kept up to date throughout the process and were well represented in the negotiation stage. We would not hesitate to refer friends with real estate needs and will use Team Rice again.
Thanks for everything DK & Rob!

We’ve dealt with a few real estate agents in Alberta and BC over the years and we would definitely recommend DK to anyone looking for a realtor in the valley. DK was courteous, professional and very responsive to our queries throughout the search. She was also very helpful later on in the process in terms of those all important contacts for getting home inspections, lawyers and utilities etc. set up in the province of BC. It was definitely end to end service which made our purchase stress free!

"As homeowners and investors in homes we have had many dealings with realtors over the past eighteen years with varying results. However, we can say without hesitation that our experience with Deborah was very satisfying. Her professionalism, and her warm disposition made the purchase of two homes through her a pleasurable and efficient experience. Her insights and local knowledge were invaluable in helping us make our decision to buy in the locations that we did. We are also appreciative of the interest and help that she provided after the sales were completed. We will be selling property in the future and there is no doubt in our minds that we will be asking Deborah to list our properties. We have no hesitation in recommending Deborah Kim as a realtor to other prospective clients."

"Thanks DK! Thank you so much for sending the one list that you did. I have to say that your approach of supporting us in this purchase based on your knowledge of pricing in the Panorama area is very refreshing. If we do any other business in the area, I will look you up. I'll tell my friends to do the same. Thanks!"
Angie, Calgary 2006
"All the best to you – it was a pleasure doing business and we do appreciate the little extra’s you did that made it easy to do the deal from a distance."

"My family and I recently purchased a vacation villa in the Columbia Valley, in the town of Invermere, with the help of Team Rice. We contacted the team upon a referral from our trusted Re/Max representative, Mr. George Georgiou, in Calgary. We were looking for reliable, efficient and professional representation as we considered buying a secondary residence in the Columbia Valley, and from the start, Team Rice went above and beyond the call of duty in terms of providing us with options, information and inside tips as they are local residents themselves. In the beginning, we were not sure if we wanted to purchase in Radium or Windermere or anywhere in between, but we did know what we were looking for and we tried to articulate that to Team Rice. They put together a list for us, and one day we drove up to meet them so that we could view these properties in person.
Team Rice was patient and pleasant as they ushered us around their home zone, helping to outline the benefits of each location in relation to what we wanted: proximity to the ski hills, golf courses and hot springs. We wanted a pleasant, private vacation home to help us "get away from it all" and we wanted a great view of the amazing surroundings. Team Rice took our wish list and then extrapolated beyond that with acute intuition as they showed us a property that was not on the original list, but which was the one we ended up buying!
Their professionalism and knowledge of their market and their clients gives them the ability to reach beyond the basics and give a personalized service that made it a joy for us to set up a second home in Invermere. We couldn't be happier with our purchase, and highly recommend Team Rice for anyone looking to add an amazing property from the Columbia Valley to his or her real estate portfolio."
E. Tsapallis, Calgary 2007
"We had a great experience dealing with DK and Rob, they guided us in a positive way and had genuine interest in us finding the right property. Very easy to deal with and very accommodating with our schedule. We highly recommended them to prospective buyers."

"Dear Rob and DK
I can't thank you enough for working so hard to find us "The" home that we can now invest our time and emotions in. I realize it was a daunting task to work with us to attain our goals of quality of community & location. Locating an existing house that has the character and integrity necessary to withstand sizeable renovations is not easy. Making a sound investment in such a property, that can be transformed, while attaining a good ROI was only achieved through your ability to see our vision. Your ability to understand the type of product we were after, for our entire Real Estate portfolio has been excellent The generosity of your time, well after we were settled in our home, helping us network with trades and businesses, and helping us re-establish ourselves personally and professionally in the Valley has been pivotal. I honestly believe that whomever we can refer to you will be in the best of care, regardless of their real estate ambitions, you understand the client, the product and the environment Thank you for the generosity of your time and your sincerity of spirit."

"Dear Rob and D.K.,
Thank you for your gift at Interior World. I enjoyed finding interesting treasures for my kitchen. It was a pleasure doing business with you both. I found you to be very personable and willing to look at possibilities that would sell our property. If you found one angle in the advertising was not working, you would try something else. You advertised in a variety of venues on a continual basis. I really appreciated how you kept me informed of action on the listing and I also appreciated that you didn’t seem to mind my calls. Communication was an important issue for me and you did your best to keep in touch. I feel that you acted in my best interest from the viewings, agreement to purchase and the queries from the buyer."
Thank you very much,
S. Senderek, Alberta

Jacqui & Shawn, Calgary
