Agustin Torres & David Silletta


Below are a few testimonials from a selection of my satisfied clients.


I have recently been working with Agustin Torres in trying to purchase a new home for myself.  I was living out of province at the time and found him to be a great help and indispensable in my search.  He was always ready to help and offer input as both a Realtor, contractor and in a personal state of mind.  His knowledge of homes and how they are built was indispensable and saved me from buying a home that would have ended up costing me much more then I had bargained for.  Agustin was always prompt and courteous and very knowledgeable.  Any questions I had he was able to answer and if he didn't know he would find out and get back to me on it.

Once I decided to put an offer in on a home he was with me every step of the way.  From helping with the lawyer and the broker and walking me through the paperwork.  He was almost as excited about my purchase as I was it felt.

All in all I will highly recommend Agustin to anyone who wants to purchase a home on Vancouver Island and will definitely be using his services in any and all future purchases.

Thank you again Agustin, I've said it before and I will say it again... BEST REALTOR EVER!!

We found Agustin Torres to be straightforward, honest and extremely helpful. With a background in construction he was able to give an honest analysis of the pluses and minuses of a house and didn’t give the ‘pitch’ just to get a sale. He was very patient when our budget, needs and wants kept changing and even kept an eye on our rambunctious toddler so we could take a good look around the houses. The level of service he provided was first class, available 24/7 to help us out and this continued even after closing. We would recommend Agustin highly.

We have had the pleasure of working with Agustin Torres on three different projects; each and every time time he has proven to be a valuable partner in our real estate ventures. We initially met when he was a "Red Seal contractor" and he proved to be a talented, honest and creative builder who did an excellent job on a kitchen renovation. Since his transition from trades to Realtor we have used his services on two separate occasions as both buyer and seller. In both siuations he represented our interests very well.


Agustin provides excellent advice, is always well prepared, listens to the client and goes the extra mile. As out of town buyers for our most recent purchase, we faced some challenges but Agustin made the process doable by helping us with ferry scheduling, ground transportation and prioritizing properties so we could maximize our visits. Even since the deal was finalized he has been in continuous contact ensuring we have the information we need to make our transition smooth and comfortable.


With Agustin you get a no nonsense, knowledgeable Realtor who also understands construction and building dynamics. He brings a skill set we found to be vital to our decision making process. We would highly recommend Agustin and would definitely use his services again.

Agustin was phenomenal to work with. He helped me navigate a really difficult market to purchase my new home--which is perfect! He was patient with me as a new home-buyer with an unclear idea of what I wanted, and took the time to ensure I was informed. Regardless of what I wanted to see, he made it happen, and we did a LOT of showings. His experience within the trades was incredibly valuable. He was able to give me really good advice on everything from the structure of the buildings we looked at, to the neighbourhoods best to purchase in. His energy and passion for his work made a long and challenging process fun and exciting. I would recommend Agustin to anyone looking to purchase a new home--he is truly amazing at what he does.

Choosing Agustin was an excellent decision. His knowledge of construction and Victoria real estate was amazing and we really felt it helped when it came time to promote our home. Agustin was there for us throughout the sale to make sure we were always aware of what was happening. We knew that we were in good hands and that he always was looking out for us. Thanks to his help we were able to sell our house quickly and received a price we were happy with. We can strongly recommend Agustin to anyone looking to sell a house.

Agustin Torres helped us find our first home, and we couldn't have been happier with the service he provided. He brings a high level of professionalism as well as extensive knowledge of the market, which made tracking down and purchasing our new home both quick and relatively stress-free! We would highly recommend Agustin to anyone in need of a friendly, trustworthy and knowledgeable real estate agent!

Agustin Torres helped my husband and I buy our first home. The housing market in Victoria has just been crazy and I was so thankful to have Agustin on our side. He has the eyes of a carpenter, able to point out thoughtful details or worrisome cracks; with the heart of a best friend trying to find us a home. From spiriting us out to night time viewings to showing up at our house warming because we sent him a last minute text, Agustin has been there.


Pragmatically, I really appreciated Agustin for filtering possible homes for me and sending only the ones he thought fit my needs so I was not overwhelmed with listings. I appreciated his flexibility and quick communication. He made navigating the housing market seem very doable and was keen to offer sound advice whenever I asked (which was often!).


Let Agustin be there for you in your house hunting journey, why have a realtor when you can have a new friend!

My boyfriend and I were looking to buy our first home, we luckily found Agustin. He was always readily available through phone or text to answer questions or concerns with enthusiasm. We were looking to buy in outer Victoria and were impressed when he didn't hesitate to show us homes we were interested in out of the city, many times. He even drove us up a steep road our vehicle wasn't able to climb at one point. He's sent us numerous property prospects, giving us a lot of variety with our specifications. We were able to make the right choice because of these options, which we may not have found on our own. We were excited to buy and anxious to see houses, he was always available to set up viewings with us at our convenience, and within days. Very personable, it was always a joy to meet with him, you definitely felt like he was a friend of yours. 


My boyfriend is now looking to invest in real estate and did not hesitate to contact Agustin for the task. We look forward to working with him again. You'd be happy and in good hands with him.
