I found Jack Canterbury of Wapiti realty to be one of the most knowledgeable and honest relators I have ever known. Once he understood my objectives and boundaries he presented several possible properties……The resultant property is one I have been looking for over a period of many, many years….His information was accurate and honest even though he knew I may not have liked the answer. I would recommend Jack as a Realtor to anyone wanting an honest, direct approach to finding a suitable property for one's need or desire.”
