We've worked together to close many successful deals, and it's been a great experience every time. Della's customer service skills are top-notch.

We have bought and sold through Della Fraser multiple times over the years. She has always been professional and on top of everything. Della Fraser, in our opinion, is one of the best realtors in Yellowknife. I have known Della for years and have always found her to be trustworthy, honest, loyal. During these unprecedented NWT real estate times, it can be extra difficult navigating a sale on large homes over $1 Million and Della was able to help us close the sale in a relatively short time period. It is very refreshing dealing with Della as she ALWAYS responds quickly, and always has time for us. I feel privileged to have a real estate leader in the area on our side. If you have the opportunity to have Della Fraser involved in your purchase or sale, save yourself potential grief and TAKE IT and your real estate needs will be met at the highest standard. Thank you, Della, for making this stressful time go as smoothly as possible. Highly recommend!

Della Fraser with Coldwell Banker Northern Bestsellers in Yellowknife, NT is one of the most well-respected and hard-working real estate agents I have ever met and had the pleasure of working with. Not only has she been in the North for decades, and truly understands the joys and complications of buying and selling property up here, she is also incredibly hard working and completely dedicated to her clients. Della went above and beyond helping me sell my condo when I moved to the United States and unexpectedly lost my renter. I knew my situation would be a challenge, not just because of the pandemic, but because of the sheer amount of work that had to happen prior to listing, and the added complication of me no longer even being in Canada! Della handled so much more than I could have ever foreseen. Between organizing painters, coordinating small renovations, cleaners, and dealing with my property management company and my lawyers who needed to get power of attorney on my behalf, Della coached me through the steps to a successful sale, all with me never setting foot in Yellowknife to help. She was part leader, supporter, guide, and advocate. The process was incredibly daunting for me at first when combined with a recent move, new job and trying to navigate a new city. Della shouldered much of the responsibility and allowed me to stay in the background, to deal with the other aspects of my life. In particular, I really appreciated that Della adapted her communication style to be exactly what I needed. She checked in with me regularly without being overwhelming. She was quick to relay important information, and ask for direction when decisions needed to be made. She made the process look so easy, which clearly demonstrates her experience and expertise. Della’s work ethic, contacts in the business, professionalism, and expert reputation are why I would whole heartedly recommend her to be your real estate agent. She gets things done and works with the best people to make the most of your sale or purchase. Thank you for being there for me Della. I’m so glad you were on my side.

As many of you reading this know, many Military, RCMP and government workers and others alike will come and go through the North as we did. What made a piece of our transition out of the North seamless and less stressful was dealing with Della when it came time to selling our home. Being under a tight timeline, we had expressed to Della that we had to sell before the end of June as we were proceeding to Atlantic Canada and were planning to purchase a home there. Needing the equity we put into this home to purchase our home on the east-coast, Della put our mind and worries at ease when she assured us that it would be done and also in accordance with our employers movement policy - which by the way she was very well educated on; Della was simply on top of the current policy so there were no surprises and no mistakes.

Knowing that we were anxious to sell so we could proceed on our house hunting trip out east, Della made us her priority. Before we knew it, Dustin was here taking professional photographs that were posted on the website and on MLS that evening! Our home was priced right and marketed by this brilliant entrepreneur that captured the right audience. This resulted in the ball rolling quickly and within 2 days we had 2 showings scheduled! Much to our surprise, Della presented us with two offers from these showings and our home was officially SOLD in three days! SOLD in plenty of time for us to proceed on our house hunting trip and prepare for our move without the stress of feeling rushed.

There are almost 16 moves between us with our time in the Canadian Armed Forces and truth be told, this move was by far the best experience to date! Della was not only confident and knowledgeable but she was EXPERIENCED and PROFESSIONAL. I emphasize on the word ‘professional’. Della is a true business professional and her pride in that is evident. I always caution our friends of how you are approached by people you may or may not know who offer you their business. If it seems relaxed or loose, that is how the sale/purchase of your home is likely to be treated. Buying or selling in the North isn’t like down south - wouldn’t you rather deal with someone who has a flawless and solid selling/buying reputation? We are so glad we went with the best! We wouldn’t recommend anyone else to friends or family other than Della!

Simply put, if you want to deal with a real professional and a true entrepreneur that is dedicat

When it came time to sell my condo in Yellowknife, I had asked around who my friends would recommend and it was clear who I was to work with - Della Fraser. She came very highly recommended and has an impressive reputation in Yellowknife as being one of the top realtors in Canada. I was not in town to be the "boots on the ground", if you may. Della was there at every moment, without hesitation. She was very professional and had a calm, cool manner about her - even when the deal was potentially falling through, she took it upon herself and rectified the situation and salvaged the deal. For this I am extremely grateful. She is extremely connected in Yellowknife - I needed a cleaner, a granite repair person, a boiler technician and a handyman. She knew exactly who to call and always went above and beyond to make sure the deal went through seamlessly, without me ever having to lift a finger. I can't recommend Della enough for your realtor needs. I would work with her again in a heartbeat. She truly made selling my first home a pleasant experience. Very experienced and knowledgeable in the real estate industry, she's the perfect woman for the job! Thank you Della!

Selling and buying a home can be a scary feat... especially when it’s your first time. Della was the cool headed, wisdom speaking light in the dark , realtor we needed. She brings her insight, expertise and guidance to make the process of buying a home smooth and seamless. Thank you for helping us each step of the way and making it just so easy to find our perfect home.

Della is a true master in her craft. Selling my home was a very stressful time for me as I moved out of town.Della is professional, understanding and kind. I do not hesitate to recommend Della. My mind was at ease with Della in charge of selling my home.

In one word, Della exemplifies excellence. Throughout our dealings through listing our house to the sale, Della was continuously respectful towards us and our home. She was clear in her communications and gave easy to follow tips and instructions to improve the likelihood of selling our home. We listed with Della in late September and sold our house mid December. I recommend choosing to list your home with Della. No matter what size of home, she will treat you and your property with exceptional service. She will support you 100% all the way from the first conversation you have with her, to the final sale, and beyond. She is clear, fair, and very easy to work with. I couldn’t have asked for better.

We moved to Yk and Peace River Flats, from southern Ontario during 2017, and were fortunate to meet Della. She was easy to work with and helped us a great deal through the similarities, differences and vagaries of real estate purchase in Yk . A job change and a move south in 2019, necessitated a sale. Because of the excellent service and experience when purchasing we went back to Della. Again, she was efficient, knowledgeable and most of all empathetic and reassuring. Interestingly her service extends well beyond the purchase and sale. At sale time when we required Trades or other assistance to solve problems, she always had someone we could call. Service well beyond purchase and sale.

The initial idea of renovating my condo and putting it for sale seemed to be a daunting task with my tight timeline. In the end it proved to be a (relatively) stress-free endeavour with the help of Della and her Coldwell team. Della helped guide me through the process on her very first site visit by providing insight into what her clientele are looking for in a modern condo. Some suggestions included paint colours, interior door styles and fixtures. When I ran out of time she was also there to suggest a great handyman (Robert) to help finish and take over my project after I left town. In the end Della had some amazing pictures taken, had a successful open house and had the condo sold in just two days! What can I say aside from the fact she's the best! Della's a great resource to reach out to when needing someone to bounce ideas off when prepping your home for sale. Thanks again Della!

Della was an amazing realtor to work with. She took the time to really look at our house and listened carefully to all the renovations that were done. She was creative in her approach to selling and was there to support us throughout the sale. We would absolutely recommend using her for selling or buying a home.

As a first time home buyer I was not sure what to look for in a house and what pricing was reasonable, especially in a northern community like Yellowknife. Della Fraser did a fantastic job answering all my questions and providing advice, while taking into consideration my needs/wants in finding that perfect home. Della went ABOVE AND BEYOND what i could have ever expected. Once I found my dream home Della made sure that everything went smoothly and she kept me up to date throughout the entire process.

I would highly recommend Della Fraser as your realtor for your next home purchase; you will not be disappointed.
