What My Clients Say
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.
If you are looking for an effective realtor you can trust, then Andrew is the agent for you! He is a true professional offering a thorough knowledge of the market as well as really listening to the client’s wishes and providing the perfect balance of advice without being pushy. Andrew sold my townhome in record time in a tough market and I would not hesitate to recommend him. He can be relied upon to get the job done and true to his word, he achieves this goal by combining modern tools with old-fashioned service!
Andrew made my wishes come true! I gave Andrew a wish list for my new home and he found a home that had everything on my list within my budget. He made it seem like he could just wave a magic wand, but I know it was his attention to detail, dedication to the job and knowledge of the market that helped him find the home that was right for me. Andrew also did an excellent job selling my previous condo the year before. He gave some very good advice for selling and did those little extras that made it feel as though I had hired a trusted friend and not just a realtor. Buying and selling can be very stressful, but Andrew helped alleviate that stress, made the process as worry-free as possible, and answered all my questions patiently. I would definitely recommend Andrew Plank as a top realtor you can trust.
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.
I would again like to thank both you and Kent for the enormous assistance you provided to expedite the sale of my property. As you are well aware, this was not by any means a straight forward by the book real estate transaction. I dont believe this could have been accomplished so speedily without your competence, professionalism and above all, grasp of the particular issues with this property and the Victoria real estate market. This resulted in coming up with the perfect buyer at the best possible price under the circumstances. In the end, everything seemed to fall into place. I would not hesitate to recommend you very highly to other home sellers or buyers.
I would like to thank you for your hardwork and the good job you had done marketing our apartment and having it sold in record time. You have been so prompt in answering our queries and also making sure to keep us informed through the whole process.
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.
Andrew, We will certainly be putting your name “out-there” to our friends and colleagues as an excellent choice for a real estate agent. Your communication with us was consistent, positive, not-overwhelming, helpful. Your timing was very good. I just looked back at the emails that lead to us purchasing our new home and it started with an email from you Monday morning saying ‘you should take a look at this.’ I appreciated getting the heads-up when something was coming on the market you thought we’d like. And I appreciated that you were able to match your presence/commitment to our level of presence/commitment. When we first engaged in this process we weren’t ready to buy or really even spend that much time looking. As we ramped up interest, so did you. I also appreciated that you made time for us at times that weren’t necessarily ideal for you. There’s a level of personal sacrifice that was evident.
The service Andrew extended to my husband and myself was outstanding. Firstly, he gave sound, factual advice on the current market situation in Victoria, and then kept us informed on a regular basis despite the challenges of long distance negotiations. He calmly handled several trying situations that arose while we were renovating the property. Andrew was very patient, always answered his cell phone or returned our calls promptly. He is also very diplomatic and respectful of our opinions. We have dealt with several realtors, and I must say that Andrew is the ultimate professional and, from 2,118 miles away, we give him our highest recommendation.
