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 would again like to thank both you and Kent for the enormous assistance you provided to expedite the sale of my property. As you are well aware, this was not by any means a straight forward by the book real estate transaction. I dont believe this could have been accomplished so speedily without your competence, professionalism and above all, grasp of the particular issues with this property and the Victoria real estate market. This resulted in coming up with the perfect buyer at the best possible price under the circumstances. In the end, everything seemed to fall into place. I would not hesitate to recommend you very highly to other home sellers or buyers.
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!
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.
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
Andrew was meticulous and diligent in my latest search for a new home, often pointing out things that I hadn’t thought of. His no-pressure style of doing business is a real pleasure. So far Andrew has helped me with one sale and two purchases, all of which have been completed without a single problem. When people ask me for the name of realtor in Victoria I always point them in Andrew’s direction because I know they will get top notch, insightful and attentive service along with integrity and honesty.
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.
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.
I would like to thank you for your hardwork and the good job you had done marketing our apartment and having it sold in record time. You have been so prompt in answering our queries and also making sure to keep us informed through the whole process.
[We] are still thrilled about our home. I am surprised at how happy I am here. It is the first place we have lived that truly feels like our home – and not just because we bought it 🙂 – it just feels right.
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.
