"Lou and I want to take this time to thank you for helping us in finding our new home and selling our previous residence.
As you know, we interviewed other top Real Estate Agents in Vancouver and decided to choose you to represent us. Your knowledge and insight of the Vancouver housing market and years of experience made it easy to select you as our agent.
After discussing what type of home we were looking for you were able to show us numerous properties that we liked. Within a couple of weeks we found the new home we eventually bought.
As to the sale of our suite, you provided us with your professional opinion on how to best market the property and gave us ideas that would get us top dollar. This included targeted renovations and professional staging. You also recommended current color schemes for repainting and using discreet accent colors that enhanced the overall appearance of the suite.
Your “hands-on” approach gave us the confidence that we were being taken care of 100%. We not only sold our condo after only two open house showings, but we had multiple offers and sold for “over” our asking price.
We are totally thrilled with the attention you gave us and will definitely recommend you to anyone that is looking for a quality real estate agent."
Bino & Lou - October 2013
"In a market with no shortage of talented real estate agents, Stephen was a real find. He helped us develop a strategy for the sale of our Yaletown penthouse, introduced service providers, and executed on the plan. Despite unforeseen setbacks, it was his persistence, connections and good advice that brought us to a satisfactory conclusion. I heartily recommend Stephen, not just for his encyclopedic knowledge, his wit, and his perseverance, but for his focus on attaining the best result for us."

"I can't recommend Stephen enough. We are now on our 9th transaction over the last 20 years and I have never had a single problem. Stephen has always been professional, outspoken and correct in his assessments. Our last property sold in just one day and that was in a declining market."
We found that Stephen was enthusiastic, informative and highly professional in his dealings with us and others. It seemed that he very rapidly had prospective buyers, and he advised and consulted with us every step of the way. I cannot recommend Stephen highly enough, and I thank Sutton West Coast for this very positive experience.
"My wife and I live outside of British Columbia but wanted to buy an investment condo in the downtown area of Vancouver. Buying property can be stressful, but buying from a long distance away can be even more stressful and problematic. Stephen worked very hard for us. Much of the background work was done through phone calls and emails. When we were able to get to Vancouver, Stephen made great use of our limited time. Stephen also had the experience and contacts to help us through the legal process to close the deal. We would recommend Stephen to any of our friends and family."

"Selling a home is a very stressful process. We had spoken to several other agents and from our first meeting we were impressed what you took as much time as was needed to answer all of our questions and address our concerns."
J & C Lukovich
"In our lifetime, we have bought and sold a number of properties, and no one has impressed us as much as he has, in terms of protection of the client's interest; attention to detail; timely communication; strategic marketing; accessibility to resources; and just all around superior knowledge of the industry and our community."
D & G Riggin
"You were meticulous, prompt, on-time, always full of good ideas and a consummate businessman."
"After interviewing several realtors, my wife and I decided you were the best choice for us, and we still think so after the sale is complete and all the work is done."
"Your patience and consideration were endless, and I felt that I had a close friend at the helm. I particularly noticed your excellent rapport with the other real estate agents."
"We would like to thank you for your courtesy, enthusiasm and professionalism. It has been a pleasurable experience to do business with a knowledgable, highly organized and efficient real estate agent like you"
U & A Fradera
Working with you was absolute pleasure as well as FUN, FUN! I will certainly recommend you to everyone I know!
"Thank you for making both my buying and selling experience not only stress-free, but fun as well. ... Your marketing strategy for selling my place was brilliant and the results were even better than expected."
"Stephen has a wonderful eye for design and a flare for home staging that will benefit anyone looking to show their home in the best possible light. That talent, combined with his enthusiastic personality and strategic approach to the business of real estate, produced quick and successful results in the sale of my townhouse. Without a doubt, his expertise smoothed away the worrry in what could have been an extremely stressful situation"
"It is such a great pleasure to work with you - you not only have the market knowledge and strategic smarts of a consummate professional, but you are wonderful at guiding homeowners through what can be a pretty emotional process!"
"Throughout the entire process you were professional, exacting and proactive in all your dealings with us. You had a singular ability to appreciate the uniqueness and character of our home and knew just how to market it appropriately. It wasn't just another property. You listened, respected our wishes, and knew when to push. You made us feel that you always had our best interests in mind. Your comprehensive knowledge of the downtown market was impressive and served us extremely well."
"I quickly learned what a good realtor can do for a prospective buyer. It was clear right from our first meeting that you are an experienced professional. There wasn't a question you couldn't answer or concern that you weren't able to address. You made the entire process easy to understand and relatively painless."
"I had total confidence in leaving my home, plants and all my worldly possessions totally in Stephen's hands. He handled the sale with humour and style and made it a joy to deal with him."
"In working with you, we discovered your marketing, time management and negotiating skills were only surpassed by consummate hard work and dedication to getting the job done."
