I was recommended to meet with Brendan by a friend who would not shut up about great her experience with him was. On the initial meeting, I came clean to say that I had no idea what I was doing, as I was a first time buyer, and also an immigrant from the UK. Brendan had supported others through this experience and was unfazed! Brendan calmly talked me through the process, and asked me questions to find out whether what I was looking for would be achievable. Brendan was realistic all the way through.
My big ask was that my apartment be big dog friendly, as it's also been my dream to have a Great Dane. Brendan understood that this was non-negotiable, but made me aware that it would reduce my options down. Right away I felt at ease discussing the whole process with him, and I felt I didn't need to look any further for my realtor.
Brendan's knowledge of the Vancouver market was incredible, he knew so much about the history of Vancouver construction, and he was always able to make me aware of pros and cons of different places.
Brendan's urge to let me find the right place for me meant that sometimes he didn't speak up about things that may have been minor considerations on each property, whether they be pros or cons - it's all part of the process, of him getting to know me and what's important to me. I will now comment that he could have let on more - I relied on his superb experience to direct me!
Ultimately, the process was short and sweet: we saw around 10 properties that could meet my house goals, and the last one ticked all my boxes. I knew that Brendan would always offer me his honest advice. I asked him SO MANY QUESTIONS! Brendan was always able to give his professional opinion and guidance throughout the whole process.
Brendan is exemplary as his years of experience and high attention to detail showed that he was a cut above the rest. I couldn't imagine trying to go through this process with anyone else. I wasn't stressed in making my decisions, or in any part of the process. This was the smoothest house move I've made in my life, and that I would say is 100% down to him. Thank you, Brendan!
