- Maggie & Al Hammond


There are 3 things that you will have to give up when you choose to work with Dawn & Lawrence Setter – Worry, Fear and High Pressure Sales People!

We are a partnership of two REALTOR® who are supported by an excellent team of transaction and listing coordinators. We are a fun, caring, and a detailed team of professionals all working towards a common interest in providing a great experience for our clients. We believe in creating relationships rather than being transactional and we do nothing short of our absolute best for our clients regardless of what might be better for us. We live in a small town where everyone knows your name and for the folks who know us; they share how we work with their friends and families. Our business is based on referrals and it is the best compliment we can get! In fact, because of our friends and clients, we do so incredibly well with little or no paper media. Our business is 93% referrals and we think that says a lot about who we are.

Our clients love our energy and the fact that we are enthusiastic about what we do for a living. We tell it like it is and we get the job done. While we are dedicated professionals, we also believe the process of buying and selling real estate shouldn’t be any more stressful than it already is. So we do our best to make it a stress-free experience while at the same time having a bit fun during our interaction. We go above and beyond in our services. Most of our folks are overwhelmed by what we do for them. In the words of one of our clients:

“You think of everything. Your beliefs and always-positive encouragement and energy supported the universe to make all of my dreams come true. I love my new home and still have to pinch myself to know it’s real. Thank you!”

Our peers say we are great to work with too. They know we’re going to cooperate and do whatever we can to make sure everyone’s expectations are met. We’re all on the same team and are both working towards a common goal, which makes it easy to work together and more importantly create a win-win for all involved.

There are three things our clients have to give up when they choose to work with us – worry, fear and high-pressure sales people. We work on their timeframe an in their price range. If the house doesn’t say “welcome home”, it isn’t your home and we won’t push you into believing it is. In addition, if we can find it for less, we’ll tell you, there’s no reason to pay more than you have to for a great home.

For our sellers, it’s about letting them know they need to have a non-negotiable point. This puts our sellers in a place of power, rather than in a place of desperation. We want our sellers to walk away at the end of their transaction completely comfortable with the decisions they’ve made and knowing we put their best interests first throughout the entire process. The more we keep them informed the better their decisions and at the end of the day isn’t that really what our job is all about.

We are outgoing, enthusiastic, passionate about our beliefs, strong, positive, and encouraging. We don’t let anything stand in our way. No matter what background you come from, you can create an amazing life and that’s exactly what we did and are still doing.

We don’t like to think of our clients as clients. Rather, they become family and friends. They are included in Christmas dinners, birthday parties, and client parties, which are just parties for all our clients to become friends with each other. Because most of our clients are referrals, there is already a sense of camaraderie among them. We are proud to have created a terrific little community.

Dawn ‘s real estate career has been 30 years in the making and was joined by Lawrence 10 years ago. We love going through homes so our real estate doesn’t really feel like a job! The best part about our being a REALTOR® is meeting great people, helping make their dreams come true and making the impossible possible. We don’t give up until we’ve knocked on every door possible to make a transaction come together.

Dawn is an Associate Broker and Lawrence is a Sales Associate. Dawn has earned several awards including RE/MAX Platinum Club, RE/MAX Hall of Fame and the RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Award. Both of us have taken the pre and post-licensing programs along with ongoing yearly training to continue to be licensed and to increase our knowledge. Dawn also has a 9.15 designation, which is required to open a real estate office.

Lawrence and I live with our dog, Max, in the quaint little town of Qualicum Beach. We have a lot of family members whom we love, but who live elsewhere. We love gardening, theater, golfing and kayaking. Traveling is one of our favorite things to do. We have seen a good part of the world – Asia, Central America, Europe, including a lot of the United States and Canada. Now, we are working our way through South America, and have been to Peru and the Galapagos Island so far.

We’re blessed to live, love, play and work in amazing part of Canada here on Vancouver Island.

It is, a Good Life! Together we can create a great one!
