The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to show you their correspondence. Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my down-to-earth and honest approach has earned me many friends - I think that's fantastic!
Working with Andrew has been a great pleasure. He allows me to make decisions with just the right amount of guidance. Never pushy. I recommend Andrew Powter (powterhomes.com) to anyone looking to buy and sell real estate.
Andrew helped us sell our Dunbar home this March. Although we spoke to a few other realtors, Andrew proved he was very market savvy and hard-working. He was very open and always available to us - we never had to speak to an assistant! He presented a few different strategies for us and together we chose the one that worked best for us. After only 12 days on the market Andrew managed to bring us multiple offers and we ended up selling for well above our asking price with a no subject offer. To top it off Andrew also negotiated for us to stay in our home for 6 months while our new home was being renovated - at no cost! To say we were impressed is an understatement and we would wholeheartedly recommend him to anyone.
We thought we would take the time to write about our experience with Andrew as our realtor. We presented him with a challenge that we really believe not many agents would be able to fulfill for their clients. We wanted to sell our home in North Vancouver in order to purchase a property to build our dream home. The challenge was that we were risk averse and didn't want to sell before we bought and didn't want to buy before we sold. Andrew walked us through a number of different scenarios as to how we could achieve this and let us choose the one we were most comfortable with and worked the best for our family. We couldn't believe how hard he worked to put the plan into action - ordering professional photos and videos, hosting private tours and Open Houses, constant communication with us and incredible negotiation skills. It was stressful but he was absolutely calm and comforting for the entire process. In the end Andrew negotiated an excellent sale price for our home (and an 18-month rent back!) and a great purchase price for the property that we are currently building our new home on. As others have said we would absolutely recommend and refer him to anyone!
Andrew is our rock star agent! He brought us a fantastic price and terms for our apartment building in the West End at a time when the market was uncertain. He possesses excellent negotiation skills and was absolutely determined to get the deal done with terms that worked in our best interest. Very professional, very knowledgeable, warm and sincere. The perfect package!
