Woodland Creek - Testimonials


“This was the first home my wife and I built from scratch and were involved in the process from the very start. We were unsure what to expect and quite nervous as this seemed like quite a daunting process. However, we had nothing to worry about!

The team at Totangi, were absolutely superb. Cecile, our initial point of contact, who then helped with everything from choosing floor plans to finishing touches. She stuck with us through the entire project, always a phone call or email away. Her personality and professionalism is without a doubt, the best! The site manager Dan was also an incredibly patient and thorough individual. Ever adaptable to picky and indecisive customers (ie me), he and his team ensured that we the project was finished on time, on budget!

An amazing development, my wife and I are now a happy residents of Sooke thanks to the excellent service provided by the team at Totangi. I am super grateful to have had the opportunity to work with them all and cannot recommend them enough.”

“We have enjoyed the process of having our new house build here in Woodland Creek, Sooke. From the finishes to the attention to detail we are so please with our new home and frankly it was built in only 7 months. The customer service is excellent. I would highly recommend this builder.”

“We bought our second house in Woodland Creek last December. There is something to be said about repeat buyers when it comes to a house. It's not like it's a pair of shoes or a car. It's the biggest investment you'll make in your lifetime, so plenty of research and forethought needs to go into this purchase. After seeing what options we had in the Westshore and Shawnigan, it was a no brainer. With Totangi and SCSmith, we knew we were in good hands. They did a stellar job the first time around, and somehow an even better job with this house. Working with Cecile made everything seamless and she was an absolute delight to talk to. We can't recommend the team at woodland creek enough.”

“We purchased our home April of last year; this was our second experience buying a newly constructed home in Sooke. Buying in the Woodland Creek development was an excellent choice.

Cecile works in the sales office and made our purchase decision seamless. She helped with every detail right down to identifying that I had selected brushed steel cabinet hardware and shiny steel light fixtures, a simple miss-match that I would have never realized. I had a difficult time deciding between all of the quartz countertop options; she picked out one that matched our color scheme perfectly!

Blair was always prompt to respond to any of our inquiries. The Totangi & ScSmithbuilding team pushed hard to have our home completed by our move-in deadline.

Our home has lovely finishes, and the purchase price was very reasonable for the level of craftsmanship. I love the community, and the location is great. We can walk to the grocery store in 15 minutes! I highly recommend Woodland Creek to new homebuyers, single families, or retirees.”

“Buying our first house has certainly been an exciting, emotional and at times daunting experience. My wife and I have 3 young kids, and we were faced with what seemed like a million considerations — location, schools, neighbourhood, price, commute... the list went on and on.

In a single word Woodland Creek has been a BLESSING! Blair, Cecile, Dan — literally everyone that we have dealt with from Totangi and SC Smith have been professional, friendly, approachable and very helpful.

The whole experience from start to finish has been quite positive. For my wife and I, the only question or rather the only compromise when we considered buying a house at Woodland Creek was — “would we rather have a longer and more scenic commute to Victoria or would we rather spend an additional $120,000 to buy a lesser (in my opinion, in terms of quality & size) new build house in Langford?”

We love our home, and we love the Sooke community. Come and be our neighbours!”

“Our new home is beautiful inside & out. Our lot is perfect for us, we are very happy with the landscaping & fences. Every single person we have dealt with during the build & once we’ve moved in, whether Totangi or the trades, all have been amazing – kind, patient, helpful, easy to approach & speak with.”

“Words cannot express how happy we are with our home in Woodland Creek. You will not find better quality. The support we received before, during, and after construction was outstanding. They took the time to explain everything in detail and were more than willing to accommodate any and all of our requests. We felt the whole team wanted us to love our house and went the extra mile to make sure it happened.”

“Our decision to purchase a Woodland Creek home in Sooke was the right one. We were looking for affordability in Sooke, and the relaxed outdoor lifestyle it offers. The quality of our home is outstanding, and the commitment of Totangi Properties to ensure any questions or concerns we have has been truly professional. We would recommend this development to anyone looking for the same lifestyle.”

Rick & Benula Larsen,

“We love everything about the home and neighborhood and couldn’t be happier with builders and developers. We wouldn’t change a single thing about our home or purchasing experience. First rate service from the builders and developers made it a great decision to buy this beautiful home in this beautiful neighbourhood.”

“I lived in Central Saanich most of my life (which is about half way between the BC Ferries and Victoria) and I’m really happy that I’ve made the move to Sooke. Apart from everyone being so welcoming and friendly, there’s so much to see and do when you come up this side of the island. The nature trails through old growth forests and endless amounts of beaches are among the few things that have me excited about living in Sooke. I definitely plan to be here a while. You should come take a look.”

“As new residents to the unique Woodland Creek Community of Sooke, BC, we would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude and appreciation to everyone involved in the creation of our newly occupied home on Callumwood Lane. A special thank you to Totangi Properties Ltd, SC Smith Building Company, and all the trades-people whose exemplary workmanship was evident throughout. It was a pleasure for us to view the progress of our home as it was being constructed. Our interactions with everyone throughout each phase were exceptional.

Needless to say, we are extremely pleased with our most pleasant living environment, both inside and outside. And, sunrises have been spectacular! We consider ourselves very fortunate to be residents in our energy-efficient dwelling that Totangi developers Blair and Warren Robertson, and Steve Smith, the contractor/builder have created.”

“Coming from small towns in Ontario and living in Victoria for 3 years, once we decided to buy a house it only made sense we bought a house in Sooke. It is a quiet, and very welcoming town. After exploring our options in various subdivisions and seeing the features that Woodland Creek has to offer we couldn’t imagine living in a better community. With wonderful walking trails and parks exploring Sooke isn’t hard to do. Along with the local people, the retailers are such friendly people who love to strike up a conversation. We are looking forward to living in such a wonderful community.”

“As I’m a military member and there are times when service couples can not be posted together due to their rank level and availability of positions. Now that my husband has retired we can be together again. In early Feb the search began for a home. It was while searching open homes on the net that the Woodland Creek homes popped up. I searched the net on what was offered and it at this time that read about geo-thermal. My husband was impressed and wanted me to investigate further since he was still in Ontario. After many visits, walk through of the homes being built, and talking to Linda asking questions the decision was easy. We chose the Douglas model and can’t wait to move in. I’ve seen the progress throughout the build and have been impressed with the craftsmanship, team environment and how the builder is devoted to the community.”

“One of our favourite things about living in Woodland Creek is that we have the friendliest neighbours. We really enjoy the neighbourhood get-togethers and having someone nearby to lend a hand. We also love the proximity to all that Sooke has to offer. We often go running or walking with neighbours and can get anywhere in town relatively quickly. The walking path to the schools and to the park is also great for all of the kids and pets in the area.”

“We have lived in the Woodland Creek development for almost 3 years now. It sure has grown into a large subdivision.

We are very pleased with the effort and direction Totangi Development has taken to maintaining overall continuity of this area. In our opinion, Woodland Creek is the best place to live in Sooke. Far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the village core, but yet in great walking distance. For families with growing children, being close to the primary and middle school is another bonus.

We do live in a great neighborhood and are enjoying our retirement here. Thank you for steering us in this direction.”
