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 worked with us in the spring of 2011 during a transfer through work and with his assistance we were successful in the purchase of our newest home. Andrew was patient with our changes in locations and in styles from the Condo and houses in Brentwood Bay to the Townhouse in Cordova Bay to the houses near the University to the homes in Cobble Hill to our eventual purchase of a house in Deer Park in Mill Bay. Andrew went the extra mile to help us – from his private client e-mails of new homes on the market, to his monthly newsletter, to the daily house facts sheets when we were viewing homes, to his getting on the floor to look into heat vents to confirm hardwood flooring, to the purchase price negotiating, to obtaining the numerous documents on our new home, and arriving on the closing day just that little bit earlier to let our carpet cleaner in!! Andrew has a very nice personality and follows up on every request, we couldn’t have asked for more from him and have already referred a family member to work with him. We look forward to his assistance in the future!! Thank you Andrew.
Andrew Plank has been simply fantastic! He helped us sell our condo and get into our first home. We are in a market where condos are vastly abundant, but with Andrew’s thorough and aggresive marketing talents, we had 2 offers of asking price within a week! Buying and selling can be stressful, but Andrew helped us every step of the way to make it a pretty smooth process. We can’t wait to contact Andrew for our next real estate venture!
Andrew’s humor, wit and calm, professional manner eased the stress of shopping for a home. I happily suggest him to anyone looking for a home and will use him again if the need arises.
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 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’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.
We strongly would recommend you. We were impressed Andrew, and really appreciated your professionalism and the excellent service you provided. Your honest advice and timing to put our house on the market was right on! The recommendations and suggestions you gave us after the sale were also very helpful to keep focused. We strongly will recommend your services to others in need of an excellent Real Estate Agent.
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!
“In the spring of 2017 we presented to Andrew a challenging real estate opportunity. The house we were selling was in poor condition and we wanted to sell the house and property as essentially a property only sale. Andrew viewed the property, gave some very constructive feedback, and came up with a few selling strategies to move the property and get us into another property of our choosing. We were immediately inundated with buyers and had some solid offers on our property. Unfortunately the buyers and us had some unforeseen issues with the municipality and bylaws enforcing new building codes that made developing this piece of property beyond the reasonable costs of several developers that were interested. This did not deter Andrew and we were very impressed on how quickly he re-evaluated and changed his selling and marketing strategy to an earlier one he thought would work better. This included a thorough house inspection, listing the known developer issues with the property, and exposing the property to a different group of clientele focusing more on the house and the properties potential. Sometimes you should listen more to your Realtor, but it was nice Andrew always listened to us. The amount of viewings dropped significantly, but the type of clientele interested in the property change significantly as well. Soon after changing our marketing strategy we had a solid offer and sale of the house and property. Andrew also acted as our Realtor when it came to buying our new house. We gave him some general guidelines as to what we wanted and the showings began. I found we were buying in a sellers’ market and to get what we wanted, we had to be smart and aggressive. Again Andrew exposed us to a variety of properties, explaining the pros and cons of each from our perspective. Finally in December we found the house we wanted. Andrew was on vacation in another country and with one email another Realtor from Home’s Realty stepped in, familiar with our needs, and negotiated the initial deal on his behalf. It was seamless from our perspective. As the possession date approached the sellers needed to extend their closing date. Again with one email, Andrew negotiated with both the buyers of our property and the sellers of property we were buying to make everything transition smoothly. At no time did I not have my concerns addressed promptly, his professionalism, hard work, and experience backed by his team made a difficult and sometimes frustrating experience palatable. We highly recommend Andrew without hesitation and thank him for the successful effort he made on our behalf.” Sincerely DH & PDBB
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.
