I have known Sylvia for over 10 years...
and I cannot imagine entering into a real estate transaction without her involvement. Sylvia has been highly instrumental in the purchase of my home as well as numerous investmemt properties over the years. Her honesty, knowledge of the real estate market and work ethics has enabled me to buy and sell real estate with confidence . Without hesitation, I highly recommend Sylvia's services for any of your real estate needs. - Eric Schapira, Klondike Contracting
I have known Sylvia for several years...
and in that time, she has acted as my Real Estate Agent on six occasions - she helped me buy and then later sell my first condo, and then to buy my second. She was excellent about understanding what my needs were and had a great sense of what I was looking for, so that we didn't waste any time going to places I couldn't afford or wouldn't like. When we were selling my condo, she showed my suite numerous times despite it being more difficult for her because I had a tenant living in the suite who did not share our taste in decorating! I have found Sylvia to be extremely helpful and willing to meet me any time my schedule allowed even though she has numerous other clients. She managed to negotiate prices for me that met with my satisfaction (and my budget) all three times. She had her work cut out for her too, because I was a completely novice buyer (and seller) and needed a lot of hand-holding and extra explanation of how things worked. I would not hesitate to recommend Sylvia, and in fact have referred her to four friends who also purchased homes with her. If you would like to contact me with any questions, please call me at (avail upon request) or e-mail me at (available upon request). - Alexandra Parr
I have completed three residential real estate transactions with Sylvia over the past few years and have been completely satisfied with her level of service. Upon moving to Vancouver, I was initially referred to her by a colleague and was quite impressed with her knowledge of the market, honesty, promptness of response, and overall business acumen.
We really appreciate the assistance you provided with our first home purchase. You did an excellent job in listening to our criteria and searching to provide us with a selection of homes that allowed us to make an informed decision. Upon finding the home that we loved and that met our needs, your negotiating skills allowed us to secure the purchase within our budget.
Sylvia and her wonderful assistant have been extremely helpful to my family and I over the course of several past months. We have used their services successfully a number of times for different needs: to find a place for myself and then my parents.
I am also extremely grateful for how Sylvia and her team has taken care of my parents who are new immigrants to Canada. She has made the process of finding their first place here a good experience regardless of their limited familiarity with the language and current culture.
Besides being very knowledgeable, intelligent, tactful and professional, Sylvia's most valuable quality is honesty. I have always felt that she truly represented the interest of my family and I.
I am planning to continue working with Sylvia to now sell a property and cannot imagine finding a better team to help me!
You met with the first time buyers that we were a few years ago with an extensive list of must-haves and nice-to-haves and very patiently and expertly guided us through all the steps. Your knowledge of the market is nothing shy of amazing and allowed us to view only a handful of great properties. We were lucky enough to find one property early on and you made sure that everything was clear and understood by us. The whole process was done in 2 weeks, but not once did we feel that we weren’t in control of the process, thanks to you.
When we contacted you for our sale, in a more difficult situation, your professionalism was impeccable. It was certainly stressful, considering personal and market circumstances, and you made the whole process, once again, incredibly easy. Your understanding of the real estate market and salesmanship finesse were certainly an extremely valuable asset to us, and I truly feel that you are in great part responsible for the great sale that we made.
Immediately after the sale, you helped us find new homes in a crazy market and with much more difficult parameters within which to work. Once again, you made yourself available on short notice, while juggling with several projects. Your thoroughness in reviewing documents which were certainly intricate and in which attention to detail was key helped me understand exactly which properties were desirable and where caution should be exercised.
It was a pleasure dealing with you. Your professionalism, reliability, cool and friendliness are only some of your many qualities as a fantastic realtor.
I will certainly contact you again for future realty needs and I have and will continue to recommend you to friends in the Vancouver market.
We have been very fortunate to have Sylvia as our family real estate agent for over 15 years. She has provided valuable expertise in both the purchase and sale of properties, including the latest sale of an investment property this year. Sylvia is sensitive to market trends and opportunities and has advised us well in diverse situations. In this latest transaction she exceeded all expectations as we were out of the country at the time of the sale. Reliable, effective and extremely trustworthy, Sylvia is also an excellent negotiator, respectful of all parties. Her warm personality and great sense of humor are of course a bonus. It’s lots of fun to work with her!
