We have some key requirements when looking to work closely with someone, especially for something as important and valuable as real estate. A realtor really represents you and as such needs to be honest, fair and professional in all activities as well as communicative and open to new approaches and ideas. No question in our minds that Jeff is exactly that kind of realtor! We have used him to purchase a condo in North Vancouver as well as find us a good realtor to represent our daughter in downtown Toronto for a real estate purchase she made. In both cases, he provided good information and expertise so our experience was hassle free and provided us all with piece of mind. He is a community guy who gives a lot of himself and brings this approach to his work. We could not recommend him more if you are looking to buy or sell real estate on the North Shore.
We couldn't be happier in our new home, thanks so much for everything. Looking for a home (especially in the 2015 market) can be a really intimidating process. If you aren’t constantly “on the ball”, you could miss out on a great place. Jeff found us a great place the day it came on the market. We actually bought it that day. Jeff was so thorough and knowledgeable when taking us through the buying process, which was very reassuring. His advice, attention to detail and availability were integral components in buying the town house of our dreams! We couldn’t have done it without him. Thanks Jeff! - Ken and Daniela (1st Time Buyers)
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your assistance on the purchase of our house and solving any problems we had along the way. You went far above your job description of a real estate agent. There were a few hiccups along the way but your attention to detail, in our opinion, avoided many other problems that could have occurred. It is refreshing to meet someone who is dedicated and actually cares about what happens after the initial sale. We will definitely recommend you to any of our friends and family looking to purchase home. Thank you
Thank you for putting all your time and effort into finding a perfect place for us! You made a stressful process, stress free for us. I am sorry we had to go through so many places but your patience with us lead us to our amazing first home. We appreciate everything you have done for us and look forward to working with you again in the future!
Jeff, I'd be happy to recommend you to anyone needing a realtor. In fact I already have! I moved to North Van after living for 30 years in Calgary where I owned both a house and a condominium. I have been here for 2 1/2 years now. I looked at real estate fairly frequently until the last year, when I got discouraged. Then I decided this was going to be my year to buy - I really needed to get rid of the stairs in my life - and thanks to you it was! I moved fast due to lots of previous research, but you were right beside me. Your gentle suggestions steered me expertly into exactly the right place. I was close, but you made the right match! I have worked with other realtors in the past, but you really are a cut above them. You are organized, knowledgeable and dedicated to meeting your client's needs. I know I am just going to love my Central Lonsdale condo, it is the perfect fit! Thanks a lot, Jeff!
After two Open Houses and a handful of viewings, you sold our family home in just eight days. With Jeff's knowledge of market trends, we listed our house in March. Our asking price was based on the current sales in our area and, Jeff's clear understanding of the value of our home. There was little to no stress thanks to Jeff! He did a great job!
Working with Jeff as our realtor, and subsequently as our buyer’s realtor, was such a positive experience. We believe that his professionalism and extensive knowledge of the North Shore was instrumental in selling our property. Not only did he take the time to explain the process to us, but he provided us with regular detailed updates and was always available to address any concerns we had. He was extremely sensitive to our needs when it came to viewings and even showed the property in the company of our dogs, for which we were extremely grateful. Jeff went above and beyond what we expected from a Realtor and what could have been a very stressful time in our lives, turned out to be quite enjoyable. We would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending him to buyers and sellers alike.
" Jeff, you not only met, but far exceeded our expectations in the recent purchase of our condo in Central Lonsdale. Invaluable source of information on location and potential building issues were brought forth, and we really appreciated receiving them. Having recently returned to BC from being in Ontario, we found many new buildings and phenomenal growth had occurred in the 5 years we were away! After selling our home , we decided to downsize, and Jeff, you proved invaluable in navigating us through the maze. We have bought and sold properties over the years, but we have to say, that no Realtor has been as hard working and diligent in meeting our needs. We are now settled in our beautiful view condo, and couldn't be happier. We are extremely grateful to have had you as our Realtor, and will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell!!
“I'd like to thank you for your service in helping me find a home. I'm not sure if I was your most difficult client to date but thinking at least I'm up there in the top of the list! You were truly the best of the best. Being new to BC and North Van and knowing little to nothing about the market here with all the talk about rain screening and 1/10th of the space for the money compared to where I'm from etc. Well, I was intimidated about buying here, feeling out of my comfort zone even after a year here, I remember wondering "why do these folks build with wood in a rain forest?”. Your knowledge of the housing market and structural and historical data along with all the stats and information you provided was well and beyond any service and time I've ever encountered in an agent. The extra steps you took to gather information and even go so far as to read minutes of condos because I was so stretched for time, well I'm gushing but simply you deserve it. I was wondering if it would ever happen here but thanks to your help I am feeling at home in my new home and also here in North Van. I'm confident in my purchase that it is a good investment. I'm looking forward to recommending your service whenever possible and also to working with you again”.
“We found Jeff's knowledge of the North Vancouver market to be excellent. The research he did on all the properties we were interested in was very thorough and the advice provided was extremely professional and Jeff always had our interests at the forefront. We looked at a lot of places until we found the one we wanted and Jeff's patience, calmness and humour was well appreciated. We would highly recommend Jeff to any prospective purchaser or seller.”
“Thank you Jeff for all your hard work and diligence to sell our house with a “location” problem. Your positive attitude and friendly approach during the many Open House sessions helped us achieve our goal of selling our home so we could down-size. Your professional advice and direction from beginning to end was greatly appreciated. And thank you also for helping us with the purchase of a townhouse. You fulfilled more than our expectations of a realtor, and we will certainly recommend your services to others.”
“Thank you Jeff for a job well done with my Father's apartment. I know it was a difficult market for the "over 55 apartment complex" and you had some lonely "open house" days, but your perseverance and unwavering positive attitude got the job done. As I live out of town, your assistance with everything from touch up paint to arranging a cleaning service was
“Thank you so very much for helping us find our home. Your knowledge of the North Shore was instrumental in finding a condo that would take our big dog, as well as satisfy our family’s needs and wants. Your professionalism in navigating us through our purchase of an Estate Sale, knowing we were dealing with family issues ourselves, went above and beyond. We are grateful to have had you as our REALTOR® and will definitely recommend you to others!”
“Just a quick note to offer our sincerest thanks for the excellent job of being our REALTOR®. We will have no hesitation in recommending your services to friends and family”
“We appreciate everything you did for helping us find our dream house. Your extensive knowledge about the area, great connections with trustworthy inspector/contractors, and honest opinions about the pros and cons of each property we viewed really helped us, a first time home buyer couple, to make a good decision.”
“Thank you Jeff for doing a wonderful job helping us to sell Mom and Dad’s house in North Vancouver. Jennifer and I have bought and sold several houses without the use of a realtor in smaller interior markets but we realized we needed a realtor that knew the larger North Vancouver market. You provided the services we needed and with your help, we were able to sell the house in less than two weeks. Your advice on appropriate market value and staging the home was invaluable. You also created a great plan for showing the home to contractors and first time home buyers that resulted in multiple offers on the property and a selling price significantly above what we were asking. Jennifer and I both appreciated your professional and friendly approach and would be happy to recommend you to anyone interested in buying or selling a home in North Vancouver.”
“Being a first time home buyer is an intimidating experience. I decided it would be best to use the help of a professional. The first person I worked with gave me a really bad experience and left me with a bad taste as to what I should expect from a REALTOR®. Then I met Jeff. His friendly demeanour and willingness to help was a really good change of pace. He told me what to look for when shopping around so that I would not only get something that I loved, but something that would stand the test of time. He stuck with me through many open house viewings and offered me an unbiased opinion of each. Jeff made me feel as though he was on my side. He even called me from a trip that he was on. Thank you Jeff.”
“We wanted to thank you for being our real estate agent on the sale of our North Vancouver home. It was quite a process being an estate sale with so many details involved. You were outstanding with your patience and excellent information regarding the market. Thank you very much for the time you spent with open houses every weekend and the realtor tours. You were beyond expectations with the house staging and house presentation. You were available every day, any time for our needs. We truly felt we were special clients. Thank you again Jeff.”
“Jeff did a wonderful job of understanding our family’s needs and priorities and made sure the sale of our home was a smooth and pleasant experience. Jeff fully understands the North Shore real estate market and his professionalism and hard work ensured we received the highest value possible”
Our family just recently relocated to BC from Alberta. The BC market is quite different from what we’re used to coming from Alberta, and Jeff – you were great making this painful process of hunting for a new home smooth for our family – so thank you for that. You took us around to make sure we found what we were looking for – now, that’s service! We would be remise not to mention you were there to also help with the process with some of the challenges we experienced with our builder, and we are grateful for your help. You’re a true professional in every sense of the word, and your passion showed in everything you did for us. Would we recommend you to anyone looking to sell or buy their home – absolutely! No doubt!
