What My Client Say
Andrew made my wishes come true! I gave Andrew a wish list for my new home and he found a home that had everything on my list within my budget. He made it seem like he could just wave a magic wand, but I know it was his attention to detail, dedication to the job and knowledge of the market that helped him find the home that was right for me. Andrew also did an excellent job selling my previous condo the year before. He gave some very good advice for selling and did those little extras that made it feel as though I had hired a trusted friend and not just a realtor. Buying and selling can be very stressful, but Andrew helped alleviate that stress, made the process as worry-free as possible, and answered all my questions patiently. I would definitely recommend Andrew Plank as a top realtor you can trust.
I would like to take a few minutes to thank-you for your assistance as our agent with the sale of the property. Having bought and sold four homes in the Victoria area over the last 27 years we can honestly say this last experience has without question gone smoother than any other previous sale. I attribute this to how professionally dedicated you are to your career as an Agent. At no time did we ever feel hurried or pressured to make decisions… to the contrary you advised us to move slowly while offering suggestions which made the experience much less stressful and yes at times humorous and enjoyable. This last point I had not noticed in other Agents and was very important to us…. following the acceptance of an unconditional offer while waiting for the completion and possession date you remained in contact ensuring we were still comfortable with our Sale. My past experience was this was the time previous Agents …. disappeared… feeling their obligation to the Client was over… also you always accepted my calls immediately … it never seemed to be a bad time to call. I will recommend your services whenever possible and once again thank-you for a job “well done”
I’m happy to recommend Andrew Plank to friends and family. He was very patient and took the time to understand what we wanted/needed even though we didn’t always know ourselves. He knew just when to jump in and just when to give us space. His humor and professionalism made the hunt for our home a pleasure.
We have bought and sold houses in a number of Canadian markets, including London, Regina, Vancouver and Victoria. We have experienced many levels of service from real estate agents but our recent experience with Andrew Plank has given us the opportunity to benefit from the very best! Andrew assisted us in selling a house in Saanich east. The house sold in one day with multiple offers and we were able to obtain a price well above asking. The whirlwind sale was accomplished while we were out of the country, nevertheless, Andrew was able to make the transaction go as smoothly as it could possibly have gone. More recently, Andrew was able to assist us in finding the house that we spent many months searching for. In the current frenzied market conditions Andrew’s calm professional approach kept us from compromising by buying too quickly. He often pointed out how houses did not meet certain conditions we had ourselves set down at the outset of our search. Andrew’s solid knowledge of the wider Victoria and peninsula market was invaluable to us, as was his good-natured approach through many hours of travel throughout the region from Sooke to Land’s End. The house we purchased had several offers. In spite of the stiff competition, our offer was accepted. We have no doubt that our good fortune is in large measure due to the way Andrew presented himself and our offer. We have already referred a very good friend to Andrew and will continue to recommend him most highly to anyone who asks. Andrew is honest, open, adaptable, knowledgeable, patient and good-humoured. He is very simply an exceptional person who enjoys providing a professional service that is exceptionally important in the current real estate market in greater Victoria.
We were both pleased with the way that things panned out on both our purchase and our sale. We thought that you were respectful about our input but were open to telling us when you disagreed with our direction and why. Selling a home is an emotional experience and we appreciated your ability to manage our emotions to allow us to make the most appropriate financial decisions for our circumstances.
I will gladly pass your name along to anyone I know who is thinking of buying or selling a home. I appreciated the level of service you provided, particularly the thoughtfulness you gave towards my mural. You were so kind to take the picture, and resend it in an e-mail months after I misplaced it. Your communications were always respectful, and you were very patient during my times of trials and tribulations. Thank you for listening to my “moments of frustration”. We couldn’t have achieved this without your hard work. I am grateful to have had you as my Realtor. I wish you all the best in your future buys and sells, and will send clients your way.
My wife and I have bought and sold several properties in several provinces with varying levels of satisfaction with the services provided by the realtors we had carefully chosen. We were tremendously appreciative of the service we received from Andrew Plank and his supporting staff. His understanding of the current Victoria real estate market, and his strategic approach to sales in our neighbourhood proved to be invaluable! His marketing plan was clear, systematic and effective. Since our property sold within six days of listing, and above asking price, we can only confirm our earlier opinion that Andrew has superior negotiating skills, and is undoubtably one of the best realtors serving Victoria. His pleasant demeanour (during our almost daily communications), patience and overall good humour enhanced each step of the home buying and selling experience. We were never in doubt that he was looking after our best interests at all times. Andrew guided us patiently and effectively through each of the electronic processes, his professionalism apparent at each step. We would have no hesitation at all in recommending Andrew to anyone who is looking for a specialist in the real estate market who will look after their best interests during the home buying and selling process. We certainly will use his services again should the opportunity present itself!
Thank you so much for all of your help. Your walking me through each step made it a very straight forward process and your kind approach turned a scarey feat into a dream. I will certainly recommend you to my friends.
Andrew’s humor, wit and calm, professional manner eased the stress of shopping for a home. I happily suggest him to anyone looking for a home and will use him again if the need arises.
I have had dealing with many realtors over the years, none of which have shown such a great deal of professionalism and honesty as you. I would be happy to recommend you to anyone looking for a no hassel buying or selling experience! Thanks again!
