"We highly recommend Layla and Kevin. We interviewed a few real estate agents and from the start felt a rapport with this team. Layla and Kevin are very knowledgeable, professional, quick to grasp issues. They are quick to respond and we felt we were given undivided attention and the best effort in the sale of our property. From hiring a professional photographer and making 3D models and drone videos of our property, to hosting an open house and promoting it on social media we felt that Layla and Kevin did their best for us. They are easy to talk to and understand the emotions accompanying the sale of your home. Selling your home can be a stressful time, it helps if you are working with people you like and trust. Above and beyond, after the sale, they helped us to find a replacement rental for our tenants and continued to assist in the transition after the sale. Thank you so much!"

~Tania Krol

"My wife and I cannot say enough about Kevin and Layla's efforts on our behalf. Dealing with a complex and urgent move felt overwhelming, but as the process unfolded, being able to rely upon their experience, professionalism, and positivity made all the difference. In ways big and small they continually impressed us with their commitment to our family's best interests. They were accessible, honest, and consistently displayed an "extra mile" mentality that distinguished them from any realtors we'd worked with in the past. I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are both true professionals that you will genuinely enjoy working with!"

~Jeff & Heather Strong

"I have bought and sold 3 properties with Layla and Kevin and have been very happy with their services! They are always punctual when responding to messages and emails and provide good insight and advice. In my experience they have gone above and beyond what I have experienced with other realtors and they provide all around exceptional customer service! I would (and have) happily recommend them to anyone looking for a realtor." 

~Ashely Elliot

"I LOVED working with Kevin and Layla – a two-for-one tag team that functions seamlessly.  I could relax and know that every detail, every step of the way, would be expertly handled.  Not only that, they have an ability to listen and understand that made me feel special – as if I were their ONLY client.  To top it off – they are a lot of fun to be around and the whole process of buying and selling was easy and smooth."

~Alison Etter

“Kevin and Layla were such a great team to work with! They helped us buy our dream house and made the whole process simple and stress free, I highly recommend them.”

~Phoebe & Cyrus

"Layla and Kevin were absolute lifesavers when it came to selling our home. We were trying to juggle selling our home, building a new house and all that that entails. Layla and Kevin were thorough with all the details, professional in all transactions, and an absolute pleasure to work with.  They know this community and they know their market!  We feel totally confident in recommending Layla Precious and Kevin Arcuri if you are buying or selling a home."
~Silvia and Dominique 

"As first-time homebuyers, we were looking for realtors who new the Nelson area well, who could answer our many questions, and who we could trust to give us their honest opinions when viewing properties. Kevin and Layla more than delivered on this. Even while we got into the busy spring season, they would sit with us and answer all our questions and really walk us through the process of buying a house. They each brought their own perspectives to properties, and having the two of them really helped with flexibility when we wanted to view a place. We could really trust their opinion and their expertise when viewing a place, and ultimately it helped us decide to take the plunge. Their advice and strategy on putting in offers also came in handy. We would definitely work with Kevin and Layla again."

~Rory & Anne 

"Hello anyone wishing to buy or sell a home in the Nelson area in the BC Kootenays. My wife and I recently had the pleasure of working with Layla Precious and Kevin Arcuri who are a husband and wife team based in Nelson BC. We found them to be very friendly, very professional and very easy to get along with. What was nice also was during COVID they arrived at our home the first time very COVID aware wearing masks and having hand sanitizer. They also had hand sanitizer ready for any showings of our home with a sign asking people to use it. They explained clearly what they would do to market our home and listened to our requests on what we would like. They took awesome pictures, videos and drone shots. The listing they posted was so good we received an offer for asking price only three days after it went on the market from someone in a different province. They saw the listing online and liked it so much they decided they wanted our home for their family. The entire process was painless and a complete success. We would definitely recommend Layla and Kevin for any real estate needs in the BC Nelson Kootenay area."

~Pat and Rita, happy home sellers.

"Layla and Kevin were impressive from the word "go". Their style is infectious, you felt like their only client. They were available, they were professional and they provided sound advice. The photographs and the presentation in general, were fantastic. I truly believe, the reason my home sold so fast was because it had their names attached to it."

~Chris Stewart  

Layla and Kevin were wonderful to work with when selling my home. Their many years of experience and deep understanding of the market were invaluable. They were always incredibly responsive and easy to chat with. I was happy with the whole process - the listing price, photos including drone shots, and description and listing itself. Their thoughts and negotiation skills were great and I felt I could rely on their expertise at all times. It was a smooth and quick process an I was able to close a deal in the timeline I had hoped for. They are friendly and professional and I highly recommend them to anyone selling or purchasing a house in the Kootenays. I wouldn't hesitate to work with them again in the future.

~Katy Fraser

"We were awfully happy to connect with Layla and Kevin as our realtors – they were as great a team as anyone could hope to find and we wholeheartedly recommend them. Their professionalism, knowledge of the industry and local market, and especially their listening and communication skills were exactly what we needed to guide us through what can be a very stressful and emotional process. They not only sold our rural property within a week of listing, but brought us multiple offers that ended with an above-asking sale price. We couldn’t have asked for more!"

~Kim and Norm Pratt

"I found the team of Layla and Kevin from Coldwell Banker that “dream team”!

They met with me and quickly took pictures and movies of walk through and did the paper work so quickly and smoothly.

I was having offers before we got the condo listed and referred to Layla about what to do and how to act. She and Kevin were quick responders within minutes sometimes of my texts and questions. They warned my room mates of the visits with potential buyers quickly and simply, without any pressure or seller “attitude” of impatience. My room mates who were hard working students felt respected and valued for their willingness to accommodate these interruptions. I was happy with the entire experience which at the beginning was very quickly resolved and closed with my price offered and accepted within days of listing. Furthermore, the follow up has been the more important involvement with this wife and husband team.  I have had unusual questions, requests and brain storming sessions about everything from welcoming the new resident to our High Street Place Condo  homes to the nitty gritty of preparing the condo for the new owners with painting or repairing or what to leave in and what to leave out.  They were generous with their coaching time and energy.

I found this experience to be of such high quality, I have referred everyone and anyone to them as people ask me to tell my selling story. I always begin by describing the team of Layla and Kevin as the Dream Team!

Then that they have to use them as their team if they are ever thinking of selling!"

~Christine Sutherland

"Kevin and Layla are so easygoing and knowledgeable about the Nelson area. Not only did they help us find a property we love (something we wouldn't have even considered otherwise), but also they have helped us find the help we've needed (lawyer, contractor, etc) to make the house our own. These connections have been priceless to newbies like us who don't know anybody in the area yet. Would definitely recommend them to anybody moving to Nelson."

Thank you guys!

~Dave & Stephanie

"Layla and Kevin were so helpful to us as first-time home buyers. They were on call to answer any and all our questions and super quick to set up time to see places. They both really know the area and the market and went over all the ins and outs of the home buying process with us in lots of detail. They successfully helped us make an offer on a great house and guided us through final negotiations. We were away from Nelson for a good part of this process but, thanks to them, everything went very smoothly. We would whole heartedly recommend them to anyone looking for a realtor in the Kootenays."

~Lau & Jesse 

"Kevin and Layla were a pleasure to work with and I would highly recommend them to anyone! They are down to earth, professional, interested and available. I felt that they genuinely wanted to help me find my “right home” and they did. It is a frustrating market in Nelson for the buyer right now and they were great about encouraging me to be patient...they were very supportive that way and were not pushy AT ALL which I really appreciated. I can’t say enough good things about them! They are a great team and fantastic at what they do."
~ Paige Lennox

Layla was an absolute pleasure to work with, and I would highly recommend her as your agent. She showed me many, many properties before I found my home. She was very knowledgeable, had great insight into each property, and I felt she was genuinely looking out for my best interest.

~Claudia Schemitsch

"We have had the pleasure of working with Layla and Kevin on two separate occasions, once in selling our house and once in buying a new one. We found them to be very helpful in guiding us through both ends of the transaction. They answered all our questions honestly, and even the ones we didn't know to ask were brought up and dealt with. They were great in helping find  the right house for us and were very definitely helpful in determining what to offer,  and how to do it.  We found them both to be friendly and wanting us to get what we wanted, both in selling our old home and buying our new home. They were always available to answer our questions and if they didn't have the answer immediately they found out what we needed to know and got back to us quickly. Without hesitation we would use Kevin and Layla for any future real estate needs we had and have already recommended them to friends who may be needing a Realtor."

~Gordon and Dianne McGregor

"Kevin & Layla were an absolute pleasure to deal with as they helped us find our luxury dream home in Nelson! They were always professional and ensured good, timely, communication with us which was key as we were from out of town. Kevin was very patient and openly shared both his local and technical knowledge plus his contacts to ensure that we were fully informed at each stage of the process. However, most impressive was how committed Kevin & Layla were to ensuring our buying experience was a good one with them! Kevin's integrity is beyond reproach as he went out of his way to ensure we were happy with our purchase even after closing. We will highly recommend Kevin and Layla!"

~Jim Nicholaichuk 

“To say Layla and Kevin have gone far beyond any expectation or hopes I could have had is an understatement. I am so impressed with their level of professionalism. There are several advantages to working with a realtor team I have learned; I was impressed with their availability which is so valuable when the market gets busy, to have a higher chance of booking an early viewing and the opportunity to act fast if needed. Also, their combined expertise and advising as they both offer insight and give such a well rounded take, I always felt armed with all the information possible so I felt very confident when making any decisions. Their experience really shows not only in their extensive knowledge of properties in general but also very specialized knowledge in Nelson and greater area, price trends, history of sold prices, previous owners, renovation and improvements and comparable houses sold in neighbourhoods, and even the type of neighbours and traffic I could expect living there. I could go on, all so important to know with such an important life decision/investment.  They truly have your best interest in mind and want to help you find the perfect fit. I felt zero pressure at any time and they recommend another great realtor when I briefly considered a different city out of their area. They helped me find my dream home. It was a competitive market and I was hoping to have an accepted offer and they did everything possible on their end to give me my best chance at a crucial moment. I could not be happier! I am so grateful. Honestly it would not have been possible without their diligent effort and attention to details that really did make all the difference! Just great people all around and a wonderful experience!”

~Jen Kanak

A huge thank you to Layla Precious for guiding me through the purchase of my property. Layla is knowledgeable and professional and it was a pleasure working with her.

~Lynda Mayes

 "Kevin and Layla are awesome. I have gone through three real-estate transactions with them. They are professional, caring and available at a moments notice to meet your needs. Thanks for everything Kevin and Layla!"

~Brenda Thomas 

"Our experience with Kevin and Layla was exceptional! The journey to relocate to Nelson from Smithers was long and challenging for our family; without their great expertise, efforts and local knowledge (there is nothing they don't know about the houses in this area and their history!) --not to mention perseverance and encouragement-- we would not have succeeded in acquiring a house here. And...they are really great people to spend time with! Thank you Kevin and Layla. We are grateful and happy to be here!"

~Kim Martin

"Layla and Kevin went above and beyond in helping my partner and I find and purchase our beautiful little home.  As first-time homebuyers we were nervous, and had extensive questions about each step in the home buying process.  Layla and Kevin were empathetic and patient with us, answering every question we had, and helping us with any small bumps in the road.  Never pushy, I truly felt like they had our best interests at heart.  I trust them wholly, and would recommend use of their services to any friend or family member buying a new home.


~Rebecca Maybank

"Kevin and Layla did an outstanding job with the sale of my house. They were professional, prompt, and on top of every last detail. This sale was not easy, given the high interest in the listing, back-to-back showings and some unanticipated challenges, but K & L navigated all issues and tight timelines with skill, patience and finesse. I would not hesitate to work with them again in the future."

~Ava Boehringer

"Dear prospective sellers and buyers,

We are delighted to refer Kevin and Layla as realtors. We just moved from the lower mainland and were told that Kevin and Layla were the best choice as they had already helped members of our family to sell and purchase their homes. Kevin and Layla were attentive, responsive and showed great caring in helping us find our forever home in this beautiful area.

Yours truly,"

~Stephen & Sharon Stafford

"Kevin and Layla were exceptional to work with on the purchase of my home. They were knowledgeable about the process, never left any question unanswered and always responded promptly. I was never pushed and was given the time, space and necessary information to make decisions I am very happy with. As a busy individual, I especially appreciated the ability to complete the majority of the paperwork electronically. I most definitely suggest anyone selling or wanting to purchase a home in the Nelson area, work with Kevin and Layla."

~N. Lynn 

"This most recent transaction was our fifth with Kevin and Layla. Each time they have provided us with the highest of professional service, availability and expertise, with a calm and rational presence. Our recent offering had tremendous interest, with many offers over our list price. Without their relationships, negotiating, and timeliness I doubt we’d have achieved this outcome. Big Thanks Kev and Layla!"

~Rich Rabnett & Jenna Quirk

"As a first time home buyer having the right relator to navigate the purchase with was so incredibly appreciated. Layla and Kevin are both kind and conscientious people that make themselves available to answer questions or problem solve. With an amazing wealth of knowledge to offer, they are supportive and helpful at every step. They understood what I was looking for in a home and were able to find the just right house for me. So many thanks to them both!"

~Megan Chadwick

"Our Family has had the pleasure of working with Kevin for both Purchasing and Selling our property. His calm demeanour, knowledge of construction and the local area  has been an asset in all our real-estate deals. Thanks Again Kevin we look forward to working with you in the future."

~Karla Rizzuto

"Hello: I just wanted to get my two cents worth of admiration for these two 

Realtors.  Layla and Kevin were very courteous, kind and encouraging. They are not just good business folk but to coin a phrase "in your corner".  At no time did I get the feeling commission was more important than serving the client.  There were some issues but the two of them just took care of us ...I more than highly recommend them, I cannot imagine not having them as our agents.

Thanking you:"

~Patsy Wright

Layla was able to respond quickly during a hot market to ensure we got the house that met our needs. Layla was able to list and prioritize certain aspects of the purchase to ensure we were able to secure a home with a very short timeline. Layla and Kevin are professional and trustworthy.

I haven't sold a house in a long time and they explained every little detail to me. When showing places to me for purchase, they took the time to really go through the place with me and look for areas of concern. They were available whenever I needed them, including weekends and evenings. Kevin and Layla work as a perfect team for all your buying or selling needs and I highly recommend them!"

~Audrey Mackenzie

Layla was incredibly helpful in finding our new home. We had limited time to see houses and she was available and on it so that we could fit what we wanted to see in our timeline. She was diligent in making sure we knew about the areas and how that would affect how we wanted to live in our space....quiet and peaceful! We highly recommend her.

~Jessica Lowes

Two lovely people, informative and most importantly very honest. Happy to have purchased my first home with them. Great experience.

If you want to work with a team of professional real estate experts, choose Kevin and Layla. From the beginning to the end, they truly were a dream to work with. Highly recommend!

~Steph Mayo 

I recently sold my rental property with the help of Kevin and Layla. I was incredibly happy with their attention to detail throughout the process, and their ability to work seemlessly with all those involved in the sale. My property was tenanted, and for a period of time, my renter hadn't secured another place to live. This caused a lot of stress to the renter, and Kevin and Layla were very compassionate and helpful to my tenant during this time. After the deal had gone through, and they had already been paid, the Arcuri's offered to help with with some of the cleanup that my renter had left behind. Who does that? If you are looking to buy or sell a property in the area, I HIGHLY recommended working with the Arcuri's. They are experts at what they do, and help to take out some of the stress of home sales/purchasing. 100% recommended. If you have questions about working with the Arcuri's, please don't hesitate to contact me.

Thank you Kevin and Layla!

Would Highly recommend both Layla and Kevin. We found a house that we were really keen on in November which we didn’t think would be the ideal time of year to sell our house..

They worked with us every step of the way and were an absolute pleasure to deal with.
