MEDALLION 2004, 2009, 2016, 2017, 2018, top 10%, 400 SALES, 15 yrs, A CONSISTENT TOP PRODUCER, EASTSIDE, WESTSIDE HOMES, DEDICATED SERVICE WITH 1% REALTY, PROVIDING EXCELLENT SERVICE IN THE DOWNTOWN AREA, WEST SIDE, EAST SIDE, BBY. SPECIALIZING IN SINGLE FAMILY HOMES,TOWNHOUSES AND CONDOS.
The market is complex. Different areas are selling faster and for more than other areas. October and November marked an increase in sales and some stability coming back. Now is a great time to sell your home or condo.
I have sold 17 properties in the last 10 months.
THE KEY TO SUCCESS IN TODAY'S MARKET IS PRICING. Call me for a market evaluation and I'll show you how I pinpoint prices and get fast sales!!! Buyers want value, market value so this is no time to add extra just to see how you will do. That small extra can make the difference between selling and sitting. I'll price your home right on, sell it quickly, get you top market value, and I'll do it for a minimum $7,950.00 and save you thousands of dollars. You will be HAPPY about the results!!! 14 yrs now in 1%, and 15 yrs total in the business and over 400 properties sold, I've seen almost everything and know how to price a property and how to negotiate and most important, how to sell for top dollar.
Consistently a Top Producer in 1% and within the Real Estate Board, with 13 yrs of real estate experience specializing on the Westside, Downtown and Eastside. Whether you are buying or selling a home, there are two things you can need to depend on...results and honesty.
Having lived in Vancouver for over 28 years, I know this area. I have a Medallion Club standing for several years including 2005, 2008, 2014, 2015, 2017 which is in top 10% of all realtors in the lower mainland, and high sales every year, 1 or 2 below Medallion each year. I have over 400 combined sales, even though there's only 75 sold's showing under my name,( a company max that we can display) in the last 14 years. I also have a Management and Marketing Diploma, a 2 year Psychology Certificate, and an enormous amount of experience in Sales and Customer Service, Real Estate, marketing and management. I offer excellent communication skills, a patient ear for listening, a savvy knowledge of negotiating and most of all honesty and integrity. I work long hours and I am rewarded by happy customers.
I have many references from not only very happy sellers who saved thousands with full service, but also from buyers who I gave patient and continuous service, steering them from danger and unreasonable prices when possible and never pressuring them. Also with all of my experience of handling hundreds of contracts I used that experience to negotiate a great deal for them.
I am 100% committed to making sure all of your real estate needs are met and not only will I provide full service real estate services (full MLS exposure, mls.ca, realtylink.org, Real Estate Weekly, numerous pictures, signage, info box, showings, open houses......I am there for inspections, appraisals, key delivery...absolutely everything) for thousands of $$$$ less than the competitors. I will always have a smile, energy and enthusiasm, and prompt service for you.
I am available daily, 9:00 am to 9:00 pm at 778 858 7778, or email at firstname.lastname@example.org
I also have all the back up you need. I know mortgage brokers, notaries, a list of very qualified inspectors for you to choose from, contractors and handymen, moving men, cleaners, oil tank removal companies. anything you need done before the sale to get the top dollar, and anything you need afterwards as well. I will provide them all with my service.
I CONTINUE EDUCATION THROUGH THE REAL ESTATE BOARD YEARLY SO I CAN PROTECT YOU WITH MY CONTRACT KNOWLEDGE. I HAVE READ OVER A 1000 CONTRACTS, CAN READ THEM UPSIDE DOWN AND BACKWARDS, I KNOW WHICH CLAUSES BELONG AND WHICH DON'T. I HAVE WALKED THROUGH ALONG SIDE INSPECTORS OVER 600 INSPECTIONS. I HAVE SEEN HOMES BEING REBUILT STUDS OUT, REFACED, RE DECKED, RENOVATED, OIL TANKS REMOVED AND REMEDIATED. I THINK I HAVE BEEN APART OF ALMOST EVERYTHING TO DO WITH HOUSING. CONDOS, I HAVE SEEN THEM IN MANY STATES OF DISREPAIR, AND NOW SEE MANY OF THEM FIXED. THIS KNOWLEDGE ALONG WITH KNOWING THE MARKET INSIDE AND OUT HAS GIVEN ME A KEEN SENSE IN PRICING AND I HAVE DEVELOPED A WAY OF NAILING DOWN THE MARKET VALUE.
I PROVIDE 100% SERVICE, AND GIVE YOU MY GUARANTEE, WHETHER YOU JUST NEED AN AGENT FOR SELLING OR YOU ALSO WANT TO BUY AS WELL, I HAVE THE EXPERIENCE YOU NEED. SHREWD NEGOTIATING SKILLS, BIG SMILES, EVERYTHING RIGHT DOWN TO THE KEY DELIVERY. I WILL BE THERE EVERY STEP OF THE WAY. READ ON FOR MORE INFORMATION.
IF YOU HIRE A FULL COMMISSION REALTOR YOU ARE GIVING YOUR MONEY AWAY. IN THIS MARKET ANY PROPERTY THAT STANDS, AND HAS A ROOF AND WINDOWS SELLS FOR TOP DOLLAR, TRUST ME!!!!
IF PRICED PROPERLY, EXPECT YOUR PROPERTY TO SELL ANYWHERE FROM 1 TO 3 WEEKS, DEPENDING ON THE PROPERTY, AREA AND SIZE. I HAVE SOLD ALL OF MY LISTINGS MOST WITH TOP DOLLAR PRICES BEATING OTHER COMPARABLE'S SALES AND SAVING SELLERS MORE, NETTING THEM MORE..THAT IS KEY.( READ MY HAPPY CUSTOMER COMMENTS) Remember I have over 400 Happy Customers, only a few are shown, but I have over 400: houses, duplex's, townhouses, condos, freehold, leasehold, co-op.
( NUMBERS AND $$ PER SQ FTG'S DO NOT LIE, DON'T LET OTHER AGENTS FOOL YOU) I CAN SHOW YOU THE NUMBERS:
YOU HAVE TO KNOW AND UNDERSTAND THE MLS SYSTEM:
WHOEVER PUTS THE SIGN ON YOUR LAWN, REGARDLESS OF WHAT YOU SELL WILL GET THE CALLS FROM THE BUYER. THAT IS HOW THE MLS SYSTEM WORKS! DON'T LET ANY OTHER AGENT TELL YOU ANY DIFFERENTLY, ITS SIMPLY HOW THIS SYSTEM IS SET UP AND ITS WHY I CAN SELL YOUR HOME FOR TOP DOLLAR AND NET YOU MORE BECAUSE ITS DESIGNED THAT WAY. IT'S HOW THE AGENT WRITES THE AD, THE PICTURES, THE FLOOR PLAN, THE MARKETING SKILLS THAT MAKE THE DIFFERENCE NOT THE COMMISSION ON THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE. BUYERS MAKE THE DECISION TO BUY, IN A SELLERS MARKET OR A BUYERS MARKET, BUYERS ALWAYS MAKE THAT DECISION.
PS. IF YOU HAVE AN OLD HOME, OR A BUILDING LOT, CALL ME. YOU WILL RECEIVE TOP DOLLAR, SELL QUICKLY AND PAY MUCH LESS. THERE IS NO NEED TO PAY FULL COMMISSION ON ANYTHING!! MANY BUILDERS CALL DIRECTLY TO THE PERSON WHO HAS THE SIGN ON YOUR LAWN.
REFERENCES: I have copied and pasted a few below, some very recent so take a look.
Buyers, let my experience help you find exactly what you are looking for with confidence. I negotiate excellent prices for my sellers, so hire me to negotiate for you!!!!
Only an experienced agent with years of experience and all the sales to back it can write up a contract that protects you and works for you. AND NEGOTIATE? How else can someone negotiate a good price for you if they rarely negotiate.??? With almost 380 sales under my belt I know how to work a negotiation. EXPERIENCE MATTERS, MAKE NO MISTAKE ABOUT IT!! I have met many realtors who say they have been in the business for 25 yrs, yet many make alot of mistakes.
I CAN PROVIDE A HUNDRED REFERENCES UPON REQUEST JUST ASK :)
Thanks again so much,Great Job,11 condos for sale at my Surrey Complex with only 1 sale in 2 months I thought the prospects of listing/selling mine didn`t look good.You assured me that we would get it sold.After the one open house,the few people who came through ,you found the 1 person who would write the offer who purchased it.Only $800.00 under asking price.We were really impressed with your negotiating skills and short time it took to complete the entire transaction,5 weeks from initial listing to completion.There are still 10 condos for sale at the complex ,many listed prior to mine that have not sold .I would highly recommend your sales expertise to any future clients and please feel free to give them my name and home telephone number for a personal reference if you desire!
Thank you April, you were amazing!
"Working with April has made this sale pain-free. She was responsive and helpful every step of the way. In short, she worried about all the details, so I didn't have to. As an expert in my area, she helped me sell quickly, but still made sure I got a good price. Next time I move, I'll definitely be calling April."
Having April sell our condo was the best decision we could of made.
From the moment of meeting her it quickly became apparent that this lady knows her stuff she had an air about her that makes you feel comfortable immediately. The advice and information she gave us was invaluable to our situation.
She has so much experience in what buyers want and she could quickly communicate to us how we could effectively and inexpensively get our place into that "showroom condition".
We put it on the market at the highest price that we thought we could get for it and within 7 days it was snapped up for just under asking.
The price /square foot was a record for the building were in and not only that we got this amazing service for a fraction of the cost of what the big realtor companies charge.

On behalf of my mother, I would like to thank you for the expeditious sale of her West End apartment.
The decision to engage your services was easily our best financial move of this year, as you saved her fully one-half of the regular commission while providing the same service as a full-price agent.
You were a pleasure to work with and I thank you for having my mother's interest at heart throughout the whole sale process.
Please feel free to use this email as my reference for your work, or your prospective clients can contact me at my home number which you are at liberty to give.
"It took us months to find our eventual home, with multiple bids, high stress and lost hope all part of the experience. All the while, April stayed positive, coaching us and staying focused on our goal of finding a property that fit our budget and approach to life. Both realtors really listened to what we wanted in a home and strived to see we got it. We highly recommend her"

April, we (Shaila and
John) can’t thank you enough for all of the hard work you did for us over the
past three months. From the very beginning you were up front, honest, punctual,
patient, and most importantly, you weren’t afraid to speak your mind. If you
saw something worth noting at a property you pointed it out to us right away
(i.e. “… there are no flashings on this building” or “… look at the way they’ve
done this floor, it’s horrible!”). These qualities helped us avoid near
disasters in the crazy housing market that is
We also appreciate how you were always available to us, even when you were on vacation! Whenever there was a listing we wanted to view or if we had any questions regarding a property, we knew that if we sent you an e-mail or left you a message that you would get back to us in a timely manner. In short, you were always there when we needed you.
Sincerely,Shaila Merchant John Tamkee
