It’s rare to find a team that delivers extraordinary results and has your best interest at heart, but it shouldn’t be.

Our focus is to make a typically stressful process as smooth as possible. We’ll make you feel like family.

1. FIRST, LET's CONNECT!

We’ll set up an initial no-strings-attached consultation to talk about your goals and expectations. With 12 Team Members and 15+ years in the business, we know Greater Vancouver and Real Estate. Ask us any questions you have about the market or the area you want to live in, and we’ll help you make the decision that’s right for you.

 

2. FIND THE PERFECT HOME. IT'S ABOUT TO GET REAL.

We’ll set up a custom search criteria based on your goals so that you’re the first to know when a home hits the market. If one catches your eye, we’ll schedule a showing. When you find a home you love, we’ll work together to create a winning offer. If you need to sell your current home, just let us know. We can help you secure a top-dollar sale and buy your dream home – at the same time.

3. SAY TO YOURSELF, "THIS IS THE BEST DECISION I'VE EVER MADE."

You’ll never have a moment of “Wait, what’s happening?” We’ll always be available to answer your questions and find solutions – fast. Once you’ve submitted your offer, we’ll take care of everything from setting up the inspection, appraisal, and handing you the keys to your new home.

Frequently Asked Questions

The short answer: yes you can. However, it becomes a problem when you have to sell your house as a contingency in purchasing your next house. Most sellers won’t be interested in accepting an offer that has this contingency. As long as you have the cash available for the down payment and/or the financing secure, you can buy a home without selling your existing one, and sell it after you sign the sales agreement.
On average, many buyers find a home within a few months of when they begin their search. The buyers who are able to find homes in this market are the ones who are decisive and prepared. They’ve made their wish list and know their deal breakers. That way when a home hits the market – they don’t hesitate.

In the crazy hot Sellers Market we just came out of – yes. But we have since shifted into a Buyers Market which now affords Buyers time to do lengthy due diligence that should be required in the purchase process including contingencies for inspections and financing. The majority of consumers finance the home. In fact, the average down payment is 12%. You don’t need an all-cash offer to win. You just need a great offer.

This is the million dollar question. It entirely depends on the situation, the location, the condition of the home, how much money you’re willing to put into the home after you purchase it, and who you are competing with in the offer process. These are all things that an experienced agent can talk you through. In some instances, it makes sense to waive contingencies to win the home and in others, it will be a nightmare.

Unless a natural disaster or an act of God, we DON’T think The Greater Vancouver Real Estate Market will crash. It’s not 2008. The previous housing crash was caused by a mortgage crisis. There were too many people, and too many banks lending money to people who couldn’t afford the homes. As a result, when home values began to decline, the consumer had no ability to repay the mortgage and thus couldn’t sell the home and had to effectively foreclose. Today, the housing market is built on a stable lending foundation and therefore is unlikely to experience any type of crash due to nefarious lending. The most recent downturn has shown that there is a resistance level that homeowners will simply take their home off the market before selling at the perceived market value.
