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…
Regarding the sale of my former home, I recall: – the sale was handled with the utmost professional care and consideration – the listing was very quickly and accurately produced, to maximize the potential of the house – you kept me fully informed, and in a timely fashion, of the progress of the sale, the offers, and the closing of the sale – you advised me of all considerations with the house and sale, and worked with me to secure my terms (such as the closing in the January of the new year, the handling of the tenants who were in the house) I am absolutely delighted with the sale of the house and the service that you provided in that sale.
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.
Andrew, We will certainly be putting your name “out-there” to our friends and colleagues as an excellent choice for a real estate agent. Your communication with us was consistent, positive, not-overwhelming, helpful. Your timing was very good. I just looked back at the emails that lead to us purchasing our new home and it started with an email from you Monday morning saying ‘you should take a look at this.’ I appreciated getting the heads-up when something was coming on the market you thought we’d like. And I appreciated that you were able to match your presence/commitment to our level of presence/commitment. When we first engaged in this process we weren’t ready to buy or really even spend that much time looking. As we ramped up interest, so did you. I also appreciated that you made time for us at times that weren’t necessarily ideal for you. There’s a level of personal sacrifice that was evident.
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.
Working with Andrew was a very rewarding experience. I feel that Andrew put my interests first throughout the whole process. We looked at a number of options and I appreciated his honest feedback on each. He did not try to “sell” me on anything; he really wanted to help me find exactly what I was looking for. And I did.
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!
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 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, 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.
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.
