I met Bret 13 years ago when he helped my buy my first condo in Kitsilano. He found me a great place that proved to be a lovely home and an excellent investment. This time around Bret found me a beautiful condo in South Delta, and help me sell my Kits place in record time. He listened carefully and provided clear information and thoughtful, well-informed advice all along the way. His calm and efficient approach made the whole buying and selling process seem easy. Thanks Bret!

I selected Dana as my realtor when purchasing a condo in North Vancouver in autumn 2016.

Dana has excellent knowledge of the Vancouver real estate market. She is a great communicator and was very responsive to my questions and inquiries, providing timely feedback.

Dana understood my preferences on location, building size, architecture and amenities and worked within my budget to find me the perfect place to call home. It was with confidence that I relied on Dana to find my new home while I was geographically remote.

Without hesitation, I highly recommend Dana as your real estate agent.

Dana did a great job of helping us (first time home buyer) understand the process, the challenges we were facing, and strategies to be successful. She also did a great job of putting us in touch with an awesome mortgage broker who made that process equally easy and understandable. All told, it was a great experience and we are glad we had her help.

Dana assisted my husband and me in buying our home in Vancouver… and then selling it when a new job took us away from the area. During both transactions, Dana was professional, prompt and easy to get along with. I think her three main strengths that make her successful as a real estate agent are:

Communication: Dana is an excellent communicator. She listened to us and understood fully our needs and desires in buying and selling our house. She gave us timely feedback continuously throughout each process. Dana clearly communicated to us what was required of us during each phase so we never missed a deadline.

Experience & Research: Dana's education, travel and prior work experience blend seamlessly to make her a natural success in real estate. Her award- winning success in real estate is a testament to her talent. Dana's thorough research on every facet of the buying and selling process made my husband and I confident in our choices and pleased with our results.

Energy & Enthusiasm: Dana radiates energy and enthusiasm. It is clear from her words and actions that Dana enjoys helping families find the right home for them. Dana is pleasant and fun so buying and selling our home was a positive experience.

  S. & R. D

So Dana, thinking back over the year, and all the people who we met and who made a difference in our lives, you are right up on top. Thank you very much for all that you did for us. We love our house.

  K.

Thank you so much for your time, patience and support over the past two months. I am so happy with my house purchase and am really looking forward to moving in soon. It was great to have met you and I hope we can work together again in a few years.

  R. & S.

Thank you so much for all of your help last week. Your professional approach helped to give us the confidence to buy into the Vancouver market. We very much appreciated your focused dedication to our needs which made success possible in such a short period of time. We look forward to the lifestyle which our beautiful condo will provide.

  D. M

Dana was great! I was a very picky, higher maintenance client. I knew what I wanted and I wasn't going to sell my myself short. It took 6 months to find a place that I was comfortable buying, even though I still had to compromise a little bit. Dana was very patient, worked hard, and never made me feel like I was a burden. At the end of the day I finally got the best place for me and Dana helped close the deal.
