Since 2014, we have built a personal and business relationship that we are very proud of. From the very beginning of our working relationship, we have always wanted to grow our Real Estate team. We started as just the two of us, Nancy and Sophia, and created our business name, Briggs & Stratton and Associates in preparation for the team we one day wanted to create.  

The team of Briggs & Stratton/The Agency real estate

Real estate teams in this industry aren’t always successful, but we are very fortunate that we have similar goals, values, and work ethic, which is what makes us the great team we are. We have spent a lot of time growing our business together and often joke that we spend more time with each other than our husbands!  However, we both realize the importance of a healthy work-life balance which means trusting in others to help.  

Rebecca Barritt joined our team early and she has been a perfect fit! Recently, we reviewed our goals and decided that it was time to grow our team. We wanted to create a team of individuals that are like-minded, personable, dynamic and most of all will extend that same commitment to our clients that we do.  We have been so lucky to find those individuals and are excited to introduce you to our new team! 

Sophia Briggs

Sophia Briggs, REALTOR®, PREC 

“I live in Saanich with my husband and three pups, and we are currently doing a large renovation on our forever home that we can’t wait to move into this Spring. I love to travel the world; I can’t wait to get back to seeing faraway places. We like to land in a city with very little planned, including where we are sleeping that night. We always have a good story and adventure.”

Nancy Stratton

Nancy Stratton, REALTOR® 

“I love to be around family! I come from a large family where I am one of six children, and I have an identical twin sister and oodles of nieces and nephews. My husband and I don’t have any children of our own, so we spend as much time with our nieces and nephews as we can. They love to come and visit Victoria and we LOVE to have them. We enjoy walking the beaches and the many fine restaurants that Victoria has to offer but my absolute favourite is when I get to cook for my family.”

Rebecca Barritt, REALTOR® 

“Other than real estate, I have two great loves in my life, my family and music. I am a mother of 2 little ones and the wife of a carpenter and shipwright. I am a singer-songwriter and with my new band r.mason, I recently released an EP, “rains too loud for t.v.”. As the world slowly starts opening, we will be playing more live shows in the coming months and releasing a mini-documentary and another single this year. I am also a runner and will be running in the Kelowna Wine-Country half marathon this coming spring. Life is busy but full of love, and I wouldn’t have it any other way.”

Kawther Sidhoum, REALTOR® 

“I am a multinational and bilingual citizen of the world. I was born in Paris, but have lived on three continents – Europe, North America, and Australia. I chose to make Victoria my home and begin my real estate career. Currently, I live in Esquimalt with my partner, Spencer. In my spare time, I enjoy exploring the island, discovering new coffee shops, fitness, and interior design. I have a passion for travel and have visited twenty countries and I look forward to exploring more in the future!”

Erin Smith, REALTOR® 

“I’m outgoing, approachable and value strong relationships above all else. I spend my free time running the picturesque trails of Greater Victoria with my Novia Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever, Rugby! I’m passionate about fitness, home design and staying true to my beliefs. I love experiencing the many culinary treasures the island has to offer with friends and have an appreciation for fine wine. I believe everything happens for a reason and strive to leave a lasting impression on everyone I meet.” 

Kelsey Ervin, Assistant & Marketing Coordinator  

“I have a passion for home décor, designing and all things real estate. My education is in fashion marketing, as I love to get creative and make things look good, but I’ve found a greater passion in home design, decor and architecture. When I’m not working, I’m adventuring with my Australian shepherd, Kenna, or sitting back enjoying some rosé, planning weekend trips and finding the newest happy hour hot spots.”
