On October of 2015 we bought our first home (in the Dunbar area). Our realtor was Adriaan, who was recommended to us by a close friend, and our experience was fantastic from beginning to end. We bought our house within a month and we are very happy with it. We did not waste any time – he immediately understood what we were looking for. He was patient and cautious, and he let us make our own decision, but at the same time he provided very useful information about the houses, their values, and need of repairs. We faced competing bids and he was very skilled in guiding us through the bidding process. He also helped us find the right people to do a few repairs after we moved in, and came to our new place to check on us several times too. In short, Adriaan and his team are the best!
"As a first-time homebuyer, I was extremely nervous going into the home buying and transaction process. However, as my buyer’s agent, Ryan put my anxieties to ease by walking me through each step while patiently answering all my questions in detail and with expert knowledge. He encouraged me to look at all my options, and set me up with a program that listed properties within my price range and preferred geographic areas. Throughout the several month home search, it was Ryan and his team’s dedication, professionalism and positivity that kept me optimistic before eventually finding my dream condo in Vancouver’s tough real-estate market. Ryan always knew exactly what I envisioned in a home, and consistently had my best interest at heart. After turning my first time buying experience into an extremely pleasant and memorable experience, I consider Ryan to be not only a consummate real estate agent, but more importantly, a wonderful person and friend. Without hesitation, I would work with Ryan again. Not only because of his charming personality, and relentless work ethic, but it is clear to me that his undeniable passion for real estate and love for Vancouver shines through the work he does- allowing him to excel in his field."
"It was an absolutely pleasure dealing with all of you on this transaction! When working with teams I find I'm often confused at who to contact and also feel that there is usually a miscommunication between team members - this is very much the opposite for your team. You work brilliantly together, are very efficient at communication with everyone and are very prompt at all that you do. Thank you for all your hard work on making this all work!"
"Our family is from Kamloops and we had the pleasure of dealing with Adriaan and partner Ryan when we purchased our home in Vancouver. Adriaan is a very professional, upbeat and organized person. Adraiaan was always accessible and accommodating to our needs before and after the sale closed, he went beyond the call of a regular realtors duties. We would recommend Adriaan and his team for your next sale or purchase, they know their business. Thanks Team Schipper"
"As a first time buyer I was very uncertain about the home buying experience. Adriaan and his team made me feel very comfortable from the get go by giving me the information and time I needed to make the decision that was best for me. Adriaan went above and beyond in being available to me whenever I needed his guidance and was proactive in taking care of the details during a tight timeline that can be overwhelming for a new buyer. I couldn't be happier with my new home and the help that Adriaan and his team provided."
"My experience purchasing my property with Ryan was excellent. He walked me through the process and made me feel comfortable at all times. Ryan also had a more than adequate knowledge on both the market and properties available in area in which I was interested in. I will certainly use Ryan again in the future when I decide to purchase my next property and will not hesitate to recommend him to others."
"I felt very confident working with Adriaan and Ryan. I trusted their experience on many levels. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend or work with all of you again. Thank you again."
"All I can say is my most appreciation on the help if Adriaan's Sales team. Starting from the beginning of my listing price. Adriaan's advices on pricing for how to expedite the sale to his team's professionalism in handling showing appointments to follow-up after showings were excellent. Especially post sales service were most impressive. I have been in Canada for more than 32 years. I have had Property buyings and selling through all these years, I can say Adriaan was one of the best that I have ever met. I was very happy on my sale of my property on #2201-1005 Beach ave. Van. BC. I hope my recommendation can benefit more people to sell their properties through Adriaan's sales team."
"It has been an absolute blast working with you guys. Thank you for your outstanding support and most importantly your patience. Your advice has been always the right one, especially towards choosing the right home. We LOVE the new place and everything about it. Thank you for your recommendation to work with Patrick Mulhern. He has done great work for us. Of course we would like to say thank you to Stephanie for staying on top of the paper work. Once again, thank you for the friendship as well and we wish you just the best in both business and private life. We hope to stay in touch."
