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…
Andrew, I am most pleased with the services that you provided for the sale of the apartment. Your assistance in the valuation and the negotiations with the buyers was greatly appreciated. As well, the fact that you kept me informed throughout the sale process was most helpful when “decision time” came. I would not hesitate to recommend your services to any prospective clients.
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’s real estate marketing and listing system is one of the highest quality I have come across. He customized a website specific to my listing, provided a digital format for signing contracts, and used sophisticated tools to ensure the optimum achievable results. Andrew was prompt to respond to all of my concerns, and showed the highest integrity in his work. Andrew is outstanding in his field and it is evident through his work that he loves what he does.
Andrew turned our Estate Sale from a heartwrenching whirlpool of sudden loss, into a celebration of life lived with integrity. He advised us to use a pre-inspection to be very open and honest with the condition of the building, to make it easy for buyers to act with confidence. Instead of “staging” to make the house resemble something it was not, we had the windows professionally cleaned to best let it show its strengths, such as the garden view from the kitchen. We just removed the negatives and question marks, such as an uncertified wood stove, and left an inviting blank palette for the new owners. Because of Andrew’s skill at positioning the house to the right buyer, it sold quickly and well over the asking price. I have worked with many Realtors, and the quality I prize most is integrity. In a most difficult emotional environment, Andrew “herded the cats” with a gentle but persuasive hand. He guided us through the dark waters with great integrity, while upholding the dignity of all. Both buyer and seller were happy.
Andrew and I are moved in to our new condo and are very happy and excited. We are also happy and relieved we were able to get moved in before baby’s arrival. Thank you for your excellent work in helping to make this happen for us. We really appreciate all your advice, time and support.
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 is clearly an amazing realtor and very respected by his colleagues and clients. He is easy to talk to and fun to be around.
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.
5 stars. Dependable, quick to respond and professional. We are non-residents and Andrew sold our 2 properties while keeping us updated all the time. Even paid for cleaners out of his own pocket! Highly recommended!
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
