What My Clients Say
“5 stars. Dependable, quick to respond and professional. We are non-residents and Andrew sold our 2 properties while keeping us updated all the time. Even paid for cleaners out of his own pocket!
Thank you for your wise counsel (even to talk me out of foolish purchases that would have earned you commission), your endless patience and willingness to traipse through dozens of homes over many months to find the perfect one, your unshakeable optimism that I would find just the right home even when I had given up hope, and all your tireless support during my protracted pursuit to find a home of my own. The boys and I are so excited to start moving in next week!
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.
My wife and I have bought and sold several properties in several provinces with varying levels of satisfaction with the services provided by the realtors we had carefully chosen.
We were tremendously appreciative of the service we received from Andrew Plank and his supporting staff. His understanding of the current Victoria real estate market, and his strategic approach to sales in our neighbourhood proved to be invaluable! His marketing plan was clear, systematic and effective. Since our property sold within six days of listing, and above asking price, we can only confirm our earlier opinion that Andrew has superior negotiating skills, and is undoubtably one of the best realtors serving Victoria. His pleasant demeanour (during our almost daily communications), patience and overall good humour enhanced each step of the home buying and selling experience. We were never in doubt that he was looking after our best interests at all times. Andrew guided us patiently and effectively through each of the electronic processes, his professionalism apparent at each step. We would have no hesitation at all in recommending Andrew to anyone who is looking for a specialist in the real estate market who will look after their best interests during the home buying and selling process. We certainly will use his services again should the opportunity present itself!
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.
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 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.
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.
I will gladly pass your name along to anyone I know who is thinking of buying or selling a home. I appreciated the level of service you provided, particularly the thoughtfulness you gave towards my mural. You were so kind to take the picture, and resend it in an e-mail months after I misplaced it. Your communications were always respectful, and you were very patient during my times of trials and tribulations. Thank you for listening to my “moments of frustration”. We couldn’t have achieved this without your hard work. I am grateful to have had you as my Realtor. I wish you all the best in your future buys and sells, and will send clients your way.
