My Client Testimonials

Miranda Liu and Rhet Bear/SanDiego, California

Dear John,
Thank you for representing us on the purchase of our property in Vancouver. With your guidance, the entire process was easier and smoother than I had anticipated it would be. Not being from Canada and unfamiliar with Vancouver, I thought you gave an accurate and honest evaluation of the different neighborhoods and your advice was always tailored to our situation. When it came time to write the offer I was impressed that every clause was taken into consideration to give us, the Buyers, the greatest protections and advantages, even in a strong Seller's market. Once the offer was accepted you had a great team of professionals who were efficient and helped us along every step of the way, from the Home Inspector to the Mortgage specialist; they were knowledgeable, reliable, and went out of there way to assist us. I thought you were very honest in pointing out even the minor details that were good or bad about the property. Your thoroughness and experience in reading and analyzing the building reports and the Strata meeting minutes, put our minds and ease, and when we moved in we had no surprises and were very satisfied with the purchase. Thanks for your professionalism and kindness and I look forward to working with you again.

Sincerely, Miranda Liu and Rhet Bear SanDiego, California, USA

Maureen M. Rieder, Vancouver

Dear John,
I just bought my first home! I came into the experience knowing next to nothing about the real estate business or what I needed to do in order to seal the deal once I found the place I wanted. John Kowalchuk was with me every step of the way and never left any questions unanswered or any stone unturned. He went out of his way to ensure that I got the best deal possible. Even now, after all the subject removals, closing and possession dates, he continues to take care of any questions or concerns I have regarding my new property. He has always approached his job with a great deal of enthusiasm, and we actually had a lot of fun finding my place! His professionalism is unmatched to any other real estate agent I have encountered. He is courteous and respectful, and never pushed or rushed me into choosing a home I would not be happy with. I know John?s work keeps him very busy, but as his client, I felt like I was the only one he was working for. If ever I decide to sell and/or look for something else, I will definitely be calling John to be on my side. I highly recommend John Kowalchuk. I have no doubt that whoever works with him will have the same great experience I had. He is the one to help you with any and all of your real estate needs. Thank you, John!

Allan Friedrich, Port Coquitlam

Dear John,
John helped me buy a condo that I thought was out of my price range by negotiating $20,000 off the list price. Then John arranged to push back the possession date so that I could take advantage of maturity equity in another property that allowed me in effect to put 'no money' down on my new condo. John exceeded my expectations of a realtor and I am recommending him to all of my family and friends.

Sandra Gallardo & Juan Flores, Burnaby

Dear John,
Thank you for walking us through each step of buying our first home and helping us organize our finances. We never thought we could do it and now that the property values have gone up, we are grateful.

Josephine and Romeo Gelera, Vancouver

Dear John,
We net $ 7000.00 dollars more than what we expected, and within two days of signing our listing agreement. Your professionalism, honesty, and hard work made this transaction effortless. We will be recomending you to our friends.

Christina and Mark McAdam, Burnaby

Dear John,
John was instrumental in getting us into a negotiating position when we were in a multiple offer situation. We were happy to have bought our first home and for $11,000 dollars less than appraised value.

Christine Baudry & Pat Carahar, Vancouver

John provides a calming influence on what can be a very stressful process.  His no-pressure, analytical approach to home buying allows the client to see both the positives and negatives of any potential purchase.  He was also very helpful with after-sale service.  We would not hesitate to recommend John to anyone entering the Vancouver real estate market.
