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 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.
We were very fortunate to have Andrew acting for us on both the sale and purchase of homes last year. Our home was marketed effectively leading to a quick sale, and the details of the sale handled professionally. He took a great deal of time to determine our new home needs and searched out exactly the right property for us. We were able to buy our home in a competitive market solely due to Andrew’s diligence in bringing potential properties to our attention quickly. Now settled happily in the ideal home, we look forward to dealing with Andrew again on our next real estate transaction! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJtPFkkqgNU
Dear Andrew: We would like to thank you for helping us to purchase our new home in Victoria. Working with you was a rewarding and enjoyable experience. In particular, we appreciate: • Your thoughtful and well-considered advice, which helped to keep us focussed on our objectives; • Your style, which we found supportive, sympathetic and at no time made us feel pressured or rushed; • Your forthrightness and honesty, in particular the way you helped identify potential issues and problems in some houses that we looked at. We are certain that this helped us avoid many pitfalls; • Your fundamental decency as a person. We have come to respect and appreciate greatly who you are as an individual. We will not hesitate to recommend you to other potential clients and look forward to staying in touch. With best wishes, Roy and Sara
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 Plank’s work as our Realtor was amazing. Based on what criteria we gave Andrew, he helped us find a beautiful property with a mortgage-helper. His negotiation skills are superb and fair to all involved. Andrew’s background in counselling also helps his clients, especially important when dealing with the purchase of property!

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.
[We] are still thrilled about our home. I am surprised at how happy I am here. It is the first place we have lived that truly feels like our home – and not just because we bought it 🙂 – it just feels right.
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.
We have bought and sold houses in a number of Canadian markets, including London, Regina, Vancouver and Victoria. We have experienced many levels of service from real estate agents but our recent experience with Andrew Plank has given us the opportunity to benefit from the very best! Andrew assisted us in selling a house in Saanich east. The house sold in one day with multiple offers and we were able to obtain a price well above asking. The whirlwind sale was accomplished while we were out of the country, nevertheless, Andrew was able to make the transaction go as smoothly as it could possibly have gone. More recently, Andrew was able to assist us in finding the house that we spent many months searching for. In the current frenzied market conditions Andrew’s calm professional approach kept us from compromising by buying too quickly. He often pointed out how houses did not meet certain conditions we had ourselves set down at the outset of our search. Andrew’s solid knowledge of the wider Victoria and peninsula market was invaluable to us, as was his good-natured approach through many hours of travel throughout the region from Sooke to Land’s End. The house we purchased had several offers. In spite of the stiff competition, our offer was accepted. We have no doubt that our good fortune is in large measure due to the way Andrew presented himself and our offer. We have already referred a very good friend to Andrew and will continue to recommend him most highly to anyone who asks. Andrew is honest, open, adaptable, knowledgeable, patient and good-humoured. He is very simply an exceptional person who enjoys providing a professional service that is exceptionally important in the current real estate market in greater Victoria.
