About Colin Gatward PREC

I emigrated to the UK, after graduating from the University of Alberta, where I spent 16 years. I returned to Canada in 2009 and settled in Vancouver and Pender Island, in the Southern Gulf Islands.

Whilst in Canada, I worked as an Insurance Advisor, quickly becoming the Branch Manager of my small branch on Pender.

In 2015, I left the insurance industry to pursue my passion of real estate. Many of my friends have said that I have been a frustrated Realtor® for most of my life.

I specialize in condo pre-sales and pride myself by offering a seamless concierge-style service to my clients. I believe in integrity,being genuine, and offering trustworthy client service to everyone. Building lifelong relationships is my goal with communication and honesty being paramount.

Outside of work, I am also an award winning professional photographer. I exhibit most of my work on the Gulf Islands, although I regularly have shows in Vancouver galleries. My subject matter almost always turns to architecture and the importance of an individuals connection with their home. I tend to take many of my photographs whilst away from my own home. My miniature dachshunds, Thelma & Louise, also take up some of my time.

He was prompt and professional, and guided us through the entire purchase process, from listening to want we wanted in a home and putting it into searchable terms, to keeping us on track with timelines, and answering all of our questions along the way. He was honest, generous, and genuine and fun to work with and he really put a personal ... Read more

I have been very happy with the way Colin has handled both the purchase and sale of the apartment for me. He has been friendly and professional in all of our dealings. He has always kept me updated and taken the time to explain any process I was unfamiliar with. Nothing was too difficult for him to sort out. He has helped me every step of the way in the stressful process of buying and selling, mak... Read more

I have done two real estate transactions with Colin Gatward. I am very aware and appreciative of Colin Gatward's professionalism and attention to detail. Colin Gatward and I had excellent communications over the four years I have done business with him. This was especially important to me because I was living in Toronto most of the time. I had peace of mind knowing Colin Gatward will respond to al... Read more

I've initially enquired about a number of presales about a year ago. With the very specific criteria I have, the right projects were hard to come by, when the market was still really hot in 2018. However, Colin has been very patient with identifying the right projects for me, and continued to send me information over the past few months. Finally, a project in Vancouver westside that basically meet... Read more
