Helping Home Owners Build Their Future
For over 2 decades, husband-and-wife real estate team Ken & Linda Johnston have been helping home owners achieve their goals – whether it’s to purchase a dream home, sell their lifelong residence, or to help investors find income-producing properties.
Specialists in the Burnaby & Metro Vancouver Market
Ken & Linda have worked in the Burnaby & Vancouver market for their entire real estate career. Ken grew up in South Burnaby, Linda in North Burnaby. The Johnstons have lived and worked in the beautiful Heights neighbourhood of North Burnaby for the last 25 years, raising their family. It is an area they know best and are considered the Neighbourhood Specialists.
When it comes to finding one’s dream home, the Johnstons help buyers find a home that suits their personal preferences, needs, and family requirements. The Johnstons possess knowledge about the proximity of city parks, community centers, and private and public schools; the demographics of specific neighborhoods; areas that meet a specific budget.
Knowledge & Expertise
The Johnstons bring over 56 years combined experience to their clients.
Whenever the Johnstons help their clients sell their homes, they bring their full expertise in order to help sellers obtain the best possible price for their property. Their homes are well-marketed, professional photographers and videographers are used, property descriptions are detailed and well-written. Homes are carefully prepared for public viewings, including the use of professional stagers, if necessary, and the resources to connect their clients with skilled trades people for improvements and repairs.
The Johnstons also learn as much as they can about the homes they sell: from the age of the roof shingles, to the condition of the drain tiles, to the manufacture date of the water heaters. This helps them answer any questions buyers might have about the home, and to deal with any objections that might surface later on. Ken and Linda work hard to ensure that every purchase transaction runs smoothly, with minimal surprises for both buyers and sellers.
When the Johnstons recommend a purchase price or starting price for their home Buyers, it is based on their intimate knowledge of the neighbourhood and their many years of expertise working in the area. This is just part of their professionalism that’s hard to find amongst REALTORS® today.
The Personal Touch
The Johnstons look to build relationships beyond the sale.
There needs to be a strong connection between clients and their realtors. Selling or buying a home isn’t an everyday occurrence; it represents a substantial personal investment and there needs to be a strong level of trust in the client-realtor relationship. Ways that Ken and Linda build trust with their clients is to making sure they are directly accessible either by phone or in person, responding quickly to concerns and questions, and to keep clients closely updated during sales negotiations.
Over 75 percent of the Johnstons’ clientele are repeat customers or client referrals; a true testament to the dedication and professionalism they have delivered to their clients over the years. “The best compliment we can get, is when a client refers their friends or family to us.”
