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…
[We] 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 our baby’s arrival. Thank you for your excellent work in helping to make this happen for us. We really appreciate your advice, time and support.
Our work required us, late in the fall, to move to the Victoria area from Ontario. Andrew set up a system by which we received listings that matched the areas we had asked for, the price range we could afford and the type of property we were looking for. Andrew worked hard to keep us ahead of a very fast moving market. In addition to this Andrew offered us advice to look beyond some of our boundaries, explaining why and how these options could be beneficial for us. He was never pushy, but always intelligently informative and thoughtful. We received a call from Andrew one day telling us of a property, about to be listed, that fitted nearly all our original criteria. He counselled swift action and a strong offer. He set up a house inspection, arranged for a relative to look it over, and then took Lucy through the house when she flew over to view the place. Within a very few days of listing we had made an offer which was accepted. The ideal house had been found. Andrew continued to work for us, helping with legal connections, checking background information and making the whole process smooth from a distance. We could not recommend anyone more confidently than Andrew Plank to help you find your next home.
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.

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!
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.
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 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 amazing at what he does. His service is well thought-out, trustworthy and professional, and he has a winning personality. A thousand times over I would recommend him.
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.
