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…
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.
Steven and I are personally pretty darn grateful that you are celebrating 8 years with Pemberton Holmes! Your work there made a positive difference in our lives through the recent sale of our home. We were impressed with your positive energy and practical approach, as well as the respectful and encouraging suggestions you and your team provided to help enable our home to sell in a short period of time. We all worked hard and it was a great collaboration! Congratulations on the first 8 years, and may you enjoy many more years helping people like us realize their real estate hopes and dreams. Best regards, Cindy
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 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.
If you are looking for an effective realtor you can trust, then Andrew is the agent for you! He is a true professional offering a thorough knowledge of the market as well as really listening to the client’s wishes and providing the perfect balance of advice without being pushy. Andrew sold my townhome in record time in a tough market and I would not hesitate to recommend him. He can be relied upon to get the job done and true to his word, he achieves this goal by combining modern tools with old-fashioned service!
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.
Moving from a more affordable Okanagan market to Victoria, my wife and I had to learn about the potential neighbourhoods for our family, adjust our expectations on price and availability, and get up to speed on common issues with older homes. This put us at an initial information disadvantage that could have been exploited by a real estate agent trying to simply ‘close a deal’. As luck would have it, we met Andrew. He always been very patient and honest, and has worked hard to understand our needs. After over a year of looking at homes, we my wife and I both consider Andrew Plank a friend. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Andrew to anyone looking for a patient and understanding realtor that is willing to invest the time necessary to help them find the right home.
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.
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 is clearly an amazing realtor and very respected by his colleagues and clients. He is easy to talk to and fun to be around.
