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’s real estate marketing and listing system is one of the highest quality I have come across. He customized a website specific to my listing, provided a digital format for signing contracts, and used sophisticated tools to ensure the optimum achievable results. Andrew was prompt to respond to all of my concerns, and showed the highest integrity in his work. Andrew is outstanding in his field and it is evident through his work that he loves what he does.
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.
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.
Many thanks for your help with our housing follies! I appreciated your informed & candid approach, and your sensitivity to our needs. Regards, Will
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.
If you’re looking to sell or purchase a home, and you’d like top notch Realtor attention and advice, contact Andrew Plank at Pemberton Holmes….
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 take a few minutes to thank-you for your assistance as our agent with the sale of the property. Having bought and sold four homes in the Victoria area over the last 27 years we can honestly say this last experience has without question gone smoother than any other previous sale. I attribute this to how professionally dedicated you are to your career as an Agent. At no time did we ever feel hurried or pressured to make decisions… to the contrary you advised us to move slowly while offering suggestions which made the experience much less stressful and yes at times humorous and enjoyable. This last point I had not noticed in other Agents and was very important to us…. following the acceptance of an unconditional offer while waiting for the completion and possession date you remained in contact ensuring we were still comfortable with our Sale. My past experience was this was the time previous Agents …. disappeared… feeling their obligation to the Client was over… also you always accepted my calls immediately … it never seemed to be a bad time to call. I will recommend your services whenever possible and once again thank-you for a job “well done”
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 has supported us with our real estate needs for 3 years. He has been consistently informed and managed our affairs with integrity. What I appreciate most about Andrew is that he is highly responsive and has taken the time to get to know our specific needs and tastes. When he calls with a listing, we know it’s going to be right in line with what we’re looking for.
