As recent arrivals to Victoria, we tried to find the best financial support for our particular needs in acquiring a new home.

We explored many sites and companies until we found Tony's website. He responded to our inquiries promptly and with useful answers, he refers us with Ken Styles (the best mortgage broker in Victoria)

Thank you, Tony, for guiding us through the process of acquiring our new property!

In January after yet another day in a typically brutally cold Canadian winter, my husband and I placed a call to

Tony Hooper.

Tony step by step talked us through the 'better than rent to own' process, he let us know he required $5000.

Initially we were quite leary to send a total stranger that kind of money!

However we discussed it in great detail, and we decided to go with Tony.

Are we ever glad we did!

Tony Hooper is a kind, compassionate man that loves what he does, he goes that extra mile for his clients!

From day one he made us feel as though we were his number one priority.

He went from a total stranger, to a good friend in record time.

We moved into our new home on May 1st, and we couldn't possibly be any happier.

We will definitely recommend Tony Hooper and his Better Than Rent to Own Program to absolutely everyone!

Hi Tony

Just writing to tell you that I am all moved into my new home and loving it. I also wanted to thank you for making it happen for me. I have had the idea of rent to own in the back of my mind for the last three years since I first saw your website. I just didn't think it could happen for me. When I saw a house that I have admired for a few years on your website I just had to call you. Everything went smoothly and before I knew it I was in my house and couldn't be happier.

Thanks again Tony for showing me it could be done, and I will definitely recommend you to my friends.

Tony and his company provided us excellent service in finding the right tenant for our property. Tony had done a thorough search of the client without me having to spend any money or time. I highly recommend Tony if you are looking for someone to help you find the right tenant. Thank you Tony

Hi Tony,

Hope all is well... We drafted up a testimonial of our experience for you. I'm sure there are many others out there like us who could use your help. Thanks again!!

After relocating to Victoria and renting a small apartment for a over a year, my spouse and I were starting to outgrow our space and simply did not want to


anymore. We had enough saved for a down payment on a home but with only one steady income we still needed at least another year before we would qualify for a mortgage.

We had heard of "Rent to Own" before but, after looking into it a bit more, it seemed only as a win for the landlord due to the huge non-refundable deposit. Having been landlord's ourselves we could appreciate both sides of the picture and thought that "Better than rent to own" seemed fair to both parties. Naturally, we were still a little bit apprehensive about moving forward with this but after meeting with him, Tony seemed very genuine and was always very professional. He found us a place within weeks that met both our needs and budget. We are moving into our new place soon and even though we will still be paying rent for a while, at least its towards a place that will eventually be ours. We will definitely recommend "Better than rent to own" to anyone who needs a creative approach to purchasing a home.

The Josephs


"In August 2011, my partner and I decided to start looking at places to rent so we could get out of living with family and get something of our own. We knew what we wanted, a house with a yard. We really wanted to buy a house, however past credit issues and lack of a down payment, meant that wasn’t an option. We wanted something long-term, with light at the end of the tunnel.

This is when we found Tony. We sent him an e-mail and within 5 minutes of sending it, we received a phone call from him. He suggested that it would be best to meet in person, so he could explain the “Better Than Rent-To-Own“ program and answer any questions we had. We met with him on a Saturday at his real estate office where everything was explained, nothing was hidden. We had done quite a bit of research into the program prior to the meeting, to ensure it was the one for us and wasn’t a fraud. Meeting him in the professional setting of his office definitely made us more comfortable, and concreted the fact that he was not a scam.

Tony was working on finding a place for us day and night, 7 days a week, and I know this with all the e-mails that were sent! He was our house hunter, negotiator, bearer of bad news (to the owners of the houses we didn’t want), and finally our bearer of good news (to the owners of our new house!). He didn’t just look at old MLS listings, he dug and searched for places that no one else would have probably found. He called people, e-mailed people and if that didn’t work, he would do a door knock. In my opinion, he worked the fee off in the first month of us hiring him! He is an excellent communicator and kept us apprised of his work every step of the way. He was almost always available to us if we needed him.

The entire process made us feel like we were “in charge” and that we had every option open to us. Tony made us realize that owning a home was more than a possibility, and wasn’t as overwhelming as we thought. We would definitely refer him to everyone, including friends and family. He will be our realtor thru to the end! "

We hired Tony Hooper to find us a new home in the Victoria area this summer. We had a short time frame as I was expected to complete my move in 6 weeks. We also had challenges as we did not have the money for a down payment, needed to be on a reliable bus route and had 3 dogs! We were interested in the concept of rent to own as we thought homeowners would be more willing to rent to someone with pets if there was a long term commitment and we want to own a home again in the near future. Tony worked hard for us despite our challenges. When we traveled to Victoria, he made us his number one priority and arranged several homes for us to view. He worked long hours and spoke to many of his contacts to find us a suitable home. He is very knowledgeable about the surrounding areas and associated amenities. He took us to Saanich, Shawnigan Lake, Langford and Sooke. We finally found a home in Sooke that meets our needs! Tony is a kind, caring individual who understands that sometimes good people get into tough spots. We are so lucky that he was available to help us find a home in a quick turnaround. We look forward to continue working with him as we finalize

the purchase of our home.



Hi Tony,

As I said I would, here is a testimonial of my experience you are welcome to use. If you have any landlords who are on the fence, I'd be happy to have a chat with them, within reason and time permitting. Thanks again for all your help.

To Whom it may Concern,

I wanted to recognize Tony and Shane from better than lease 2 own for the outstanding job they did in finding me a long-term tenant who will eventually purchase my home. Shane contacted me from an ad I placed to rent my home

and explained the details of how better than lease 2 own works. As a landlord, I never thought this type of program would be for me. I was hesitant at first and weary of “the catch”. Shane explained how the program worked and reassured me as a landlord that I had nothing to lose. Shane and Tony found me a qualified tenant/purchaser for my home quicker than it took for me to find my own. The best part of all is they took care of the pre-screening and

only brought me qualified tenants/buyers. In the end, I got a great tenant on a long-term lease (a landlord’s dream) and an offer to purchase the property at the end of the lease term. There was no cost and no risk to me. I got my

full asking price for the rental term and a reasonable offer on my home. When I sell the home, I can do so without realtor fees and inconvenience for myself or the tenant, saving me time and thousands of dollars. Shane and Tony

made everything so easy, a few emails and a quick 10 minute meeting to sign the documents. This was the easiest experience I’ve had finding a tenant. These guys are the real deal!
