Hello! I have delighted in helping clients achieve their real estate goals in the Victoria area since 2006 and am grateful to live and work in this beautiful city. Through a results-oriented approach and by leveraging the best systems, tools and techniques, I work to ensure my clients remain well-informed and highly successful in making the best real estate decisions. I take pride in my work and am dedicated to providing the kind of exceptional service and guidance I myself would appreciate if buying or selling a home for the first time. My intention is to streamline the process and protect my clients from complications, so their experience is hassle-free from start to finish. My services are client-focused, informative, and provided in a friendly and easy-going manner, yet I’m firm and assertive when protecting and promoting client’s interests in their negotiations. Over the years, I have curated a set of effective and quality marketing materials and service providers to share with my clients. Much of my business these past years is through repeat and referred customers but I’m always happy to welcome new clients.
What my clients are saying…
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!
Andrew Plank’s work as our Realtor was amazing. Based on what criteria we gave Andrew, he helped us find a beautiful property with a mortgage-helper. His negotiation skills are superb and fair to all involved. Andrew’s background in counselling also helps his clients, especially important when dealing with the purchase of property!
My wife and I were entertaining a cross country move to Victoria. We were lucky to meet Andrew Plank. On our first visit to the island, Andrew picked us up at our hotel, and provided an exhaustive tour and review of the neighbourhoods and homes in our price range so that we could develop an understanding of life on the island, school choices, restaurants and shopping, and commuting. We were able to then hone in on a few areas for our next trip. I felt at all times like I was Andrew’s only and most important client… While we were back home, Andrew continued to watch the market on our behalf, he provided tools to allow us to see what was going on in the market, and when he saw something he thought we might like, he reached out and in some cases, Andrew took it upon himself to walk through the potential property and shoot video – it was like we were there ourselves. Second trip out, once again Andrew gave us his full time and attention and set up a full few day of visits… by day two, we were benefiting from Andrew’s deep level of experience, important eye for observation and general savvy to write up an offer to purchase… 24 hours later we had purchased our home, which we could not be happier to have. Start to finish, we had a great experience in working with Andrew and I am very pleased to have the opportunity to recommend Andrew, a true professional and friend.
Andrew is not only a great real estate agent, he is a genuinely nice guy – which was very important to us. We have worked with Andrew three times over the past two years – selling an inherited home, buying a condo for our step father, and finding a home for ourselves. On all three occassions Andrew was able to create an effective plan, based on current market trends, to ensure that we got the best value. Andrew is someone who we have trusted with our future and can recommend him to anyone without hesitation. Thanks Andrew!
I was very happy with your service and approach. You made the process of exploring my real estate options easy, low stress, and even fun. You used a practical approach, offered useful and relevant feedback, and were responsive to questions. In a nutshell you made the process easy and low stress.
Andrew, We want to thank you so much for finding our house. Although we looked at many houses together over the course of roughly a year, you stayed patient and kept finding houses on our wish list. Eventually we found the right one and we love it. You were very prompt in getting us viewings and your years of experience were very useful. You showed us many things in houses that we may have overlooked or not noticed at all as first time home buyers. Your easy going professionalism made house hunting a pleasure. We gladly recommend you to anyone looking to deal in real estate.
Andrew did a great job selling our house for us. It was a large home with lots of character that we felt someone would love but was not something for everyone. Andrew was very observant going through the house and picked up on many details that he identified as selling features as well as anticipating possible objections. He was always professional, respectful, and a very accountable communicator throughout the whole process. Andrew and his media partners put together first class presentation materials, interactive floor plans, and an amazing 3D computer model of the home that has set a new standard for remote visualization. We would not hesitate to recommend Andrew!
Andrew has supported us with our real estate needs for 3 years. He has been consistently informed and managed our affairs with integrity. What I appreciate most about Andrew is that he is highly responsive and has taken the time to get to know our specific needs and tastes. When he calls with a listing, we know it’s going to be right in line with what we’re looking for.
The way that you handled the negotiation was excellent. You were frank and honest about what you thought but did not push us through the process. And getting 4500 off of the price in very tactful way was very good. I appreciated all the up front work that you did for us in such a short amount of time. But the other piece of it was that I felt less burdened by all the rest of the process once we put an offer in. I didn’t know how much work there would be, but you kept us on track and made sure we were aware of any major things. You let me know exactly what to ask of the strata council which made my life easier. And thanks again for coming here to video the place for us. You went above and beyond most realtors in doing that. N.P.
Dear Andrew: We would like to thank you for helping us to purchase our new home in Victoria. Working with you was a rewarding and enjoyable experience. In particular, we appreciate: • Your thoughtful and well-considered advice, which helped to keep us focussed on our objectives; • Your style, which we found supportive, sympathetic and at no time made us feel pressured or rushed; • Your forthrightness and honesty, in particular the way you helped identify potential issues and problems in some houses that we looked at. We are certain that this helped us avoid many pitfalls; • Your fundamental decency as a person. We have come to respect and appreciate greatly who you are as an individual. We will not hesitate to recommend you to other potential clients and look forward to staying in touch. With best wishes, Roy and Sara
