Glynis brings a unique international perspective to the Victoria real estate market. Having owned and renovated homes in Canada, Scotland and her home country of South Africa, Glynis arrived in Victoria with her husband and two daughters in 2003.
Glynis has garnered in-depth local real estate knowledge working in a busy real estate team. As a Victoria homeowner she has moved from an oceanfront home in Gordon Head, to the leafy suburb of Broadmead, then to an acreage property in the Mt. Newton Valley and finally to the seaside town of Brentwood Bay.
A marketing professional, in 1985 she formed her own public relations and communications company in Toronto and for ten years specialized in the production of annual reports and media communications for listed companies.
Glynis is a multiple MLS Award recipient. Together with the extensive support of the unique Sotheby’s brand, she uses her skills in marketing and home renovation and her passion for real estate to provide both buyers and sellers the experience, professionalism and integrity required to market or acquire a home.
"I believe every home is a mansion regardless of size, location or price," says Glynis.

Victoria SellerGlynis went above and beyond in marketing our home, and also brought to bear all the web and international tools that Sotheby's has developed, to find us an international buyer. She handled negotiations with expertise and grace. We couldn't be happier.David & Maria
Bob Grainger retired COO Black Press.To whom it may concern:
Please accept this letter as an unsolicited testimony as to the professionalism, marketing strategies, tenacity and client relationships demonstrated by realtor Glynis Macleod of Sotheby's International in Victoria, BC.
It was a pleasure dealing with Glynis as she built a completely trusting relationship with us during the sale of our home. Her on site marketing kit presentation as well as her choice of alternate markets she marketed our home was more than we expected, including Sotheby's glossy executive home magazine. Every step of the way was professional including any research needed that we could not supply. Her tenacity with house showings and open houses were, I'm sure, at times exhausting.
I would suggest, if selling your home, call Glynis as she is the one you can count on.
Thank you Glynis
BuyerA heartfelt thanks: We began our home search on the island two years ago. When we started we thought we had a clear and concise list of our needs and wants and tried to relay that to the real estate agents that we had engaged with. After many disappointing viewings we were frustrated and unsure if we were ever going to find a home that had all of the criteria that we had expressed to other realtors were necessary. We decided to find a new agent and walked into Sotheby's on Douglas in Victoria. We asked for a realtor and were introduced to Glynis Macleod.
What a difference the right agent makes!
Glynis from the onset seemed invested in our success. She asked us questions that other realtors had not and within a few hours had compiled a list of homes and had booked viewings.
Her expertise and experience were priceless. She pointed out deficiencies that we had never even considered in properties and never tried to divert us from our wish list. Appointments were never rushed and her attention to detail was exceptional. It really makes a difference when a realtor is in your corner. She had professional available to us for mortgages and legal advice which was invaluable since we were moving from a different part of the province.
It took some time but we have now found a home. A home that met and exceeded everything on our list. We wanted to express our gratitude for the patient and proficient service Glynis extended to us.
Glynis is no longer the agent that helped us find a home, she is also someone that we consider a friend.Dave & Thea Hansen
Calgary BuyerOutstanding – that is how we describe Glynis MacLeod. We noticed right away that she really listened to what we had to say and enthusiastically showed us any house we wanted to see. She also found other places that she knew would fit our needs, and opened our minds to possibilities that would not have occurred to us. With Glynis, we felt like we were partners on a project, and that she truly had our best interests in mind.
Glynis is organized, efficient and energetic, and has an eye for detail and for potential. Her work ethic, thoughtfulness, enthusiasm and big heart are just a few of the reasons we feel she is the best realtor we have ever worked with. With Glynis there was never any pressure – just a comfortable feeling that we were in the best hands possible, and that she would stick with us until we found the perfect place. And she did. We couldn’t be happier with our house, and we can’t recommend her enough!Denise and Dave
