Superlative Guidance and Service

We are glad that Simon’s our realtor.


During the process of selling our condo, Simon provided us with superlative guidance and service.  He was always patient to listen to our needs and ideas.  His analysis of the real estate market was both thorough and spot-on.  He gave us expert guidance throughout the different stages: preparing our home for viewing, showing our home, and helping us to navigate through various offers and decisions.  We found that Simon, proverbially speaking, had left no stone unturned!

Selling our home could have easily been a tiring and anxious experience, Simon however has turned that into a pleasant process for us.  We heartily recommend Simon for your real estate needs.

Connie Ho (Seller / Buyer, Aug 2017)

Always there to provide us immediate and timely advice!

We were first time home owners brand new to the market and hope of finally getting into the market.  Simon took the time to answer all our questions and helped guide us to our first big purchase.  From our first time meeting us, he already had us set up with personalised tailored listing searches so we could right away start looking beyond the many internet searches that are available.  He was always there to provide us immediate and timely advice both educating us and supporting us along the way.  This included many instances of insightful advice that helped us consider all aspects of value in a piece of property that was important when it came time to make an offer.  He supported us with both speed and precision, representing us faithfully though to closing out our deal and the purchase of our home. We went from inexperienced newbies to educated home buyer within a week!! We cannot recommend him more for those looking for a solid representative in a tough market.

Very professional, experienced, knowledgeable, highly respected by his peers and extremely well prepared

In our view, Simon was very professional, experienced, knowledgeable, highly respected by his peers and extremely well prepared for the sale of our house.  He understood and knew well in advance what information and questions the prospective buyers would be asking, and he was prepared to answer those questions and provide the information requested right away.  He had a marketing strategy in place that he felt would work, and he delivered.

True one stop service that cater to needs

My aged parents have to sell their place and I am acting as their power of attorney from out of the country.   Simon’s strong commitment to service and resourcefulness have made this would have been complex situation very smooth and efficient.   He planned and arranged the legal procedures and remote signing, conferenced and walked through the offers, followed up with all parties and provided timely update throughout the process.   He provided professional market analysis and thoughtful recommendation from planning to closing.   He and his team are professional and through, staged the place beautifully for open house and took care of the clutter and junk that my parents accumulated.   He took the extra care to check on the mailbox and also sorted out items my parents might have left behind.  I would strongly recommend Simon and believe he will take care of any real estate needs and situations.

 

Pok Wong (seller, Oct 2016)

Experienced, knowledgeable and well representing you...

If you are looking for an agent who is experienced, knowledgeable, well representing you at your best interest, it's got to be Simon. I've been buying and selling properties for primary and investment in the past 20 years, I have to say he's the best agent I have ever met and will refer to our friends and families. He's well rounded whether you're a buyer or seller as we've gone through both processes with him recently. Whenever you have a question or request, he will take it seriously and go the extra mile to make sure that your question is well addressed and well satisfied. Negotiation and confrontation skills are no doubt impeccable. Agents are everywhere, but good agent is hard to find. I'd rather keep this to myself, but I do think that compliment is what Simon deserves.

 

Mr. Tam (Seller & Buyer, June 2016)

Achieved the best result possible.

We wanted to sell our house quickly during a very busy season.  Simon Yu and his team worked very diligently and kept us informed throughout the process.   The sale was successful after the first weekend of open house and we felt confident that they achieved the best result possible.

 

Michael Hwang (seller, June 2016)

Expertise in the real estate business

I am very happy with Simon Yu as my realtor.  He is an expertise in the real estate business, and knows how to handle all kinds of situation that would arise throughout the deals, with our applause.  He always analyses the most recent up-to-date real estate market in the area concerned, and then explains to his clients before he carries out his plan.  When he sells a house, he never puts higher priorities for houses of higher market values, and neglects or puts aside houses of lower market values, or tries to sell them quickly at lower prices so that he could concentrate on the big houses.  He handles every step carefully himself, although he also has his excellent team members to assist him.

 

He was very detailed in his planning and selling strategy for our house.  He listened to all our concerns, ideas and suggestions, and tried to do everything according to what we wanted.  He is honest, and tried to get the most out of the house sale for us.  When we were buying the apartment after the sale of our house, he also helped us in every way he could, and tried his best to get for the lowest possible price for us.  Everything was handled smoothly and hassle-free for us.  I had no doubts in him, and trusted him entirely throughout our selling and buying. 

 

Thank you, Simon.  It was a blessing to have you as our realtor, and I would highly recommend you to anyone.

Highly recommend Simon to anyone.

We highly recommend Simon to anyone looking to buy or sell. His level of professionalism and expertise is very evident throughout the entire process. He went beyond expectations to provide expert advice, guidance and support. Our house was sold in one weekend at a price higher than expected. He was there every step of the way - providing multiple CMAs in the weeks leading up to the listing and showing, making recommendations on staging our home (even bringing his own furniture to help fill empty spaces!) and was very professional and committed in dealing with the presentation of offers. He continues to help us after the sale by providing assistance in our plans on moving and renovation. His knowledge of and experience in the market clearly makes him an absolutely wonderful realtor to work with. Thank you, Simon, for all your help! We truly appreciate it!

 

Melody Shih (Seller & Buyer, April 2016)

Professionalims & Resourcefulness

Thanks to Simon, our property was sold in no time and at the price that we want.  He and his team has shown professionalism and resourcefulness during the entire process and we hope that he can help us in finding the ideal place that we can call home again in the very near future.

 

Sabrina Chang (Seller, March 2016)

Simon... perfectly understanding what we want, suitable options found...

Although you were recommended by a relatives, at beginning we were not sure how much efforts you could really do to take care of our unique needs properly. We were not looking for a typical salesman of real estate property, but someone for extra helps, actually a kind of friend, because we could stay for only a few days to close the deal and because we might not resettle ourselves for retirement in Vancouver for years.

 

I have to say that we are so lucky to have you as our representative to buy an apartment in Vancouver. It's not only because those professional work, such as perfectly understanding what we want, suitable options found, the deal closed properly in such as short time, etc., but also because you helped us to get all done properly when we were not available to be in Vancouver in the past 2 years. Lots of them, such as receiving the key and documents of the apartment, coordinating lawyer and utility suppliers, finding tenants for leasing, etc. are more than an agent usually do, I think. Lots of things done or learnt are good for us to be resettled in Vancouver.

 

The point is that you treat us special and we enjoyed being through it with you.

 

We really appreciate all your time and helps.

 

Jack Li (Buyer, Feb 2016)

Robin Choi (seller & buyer, Jan 2016)

Definitely recommend Simon's service to anyone

Simon has helped us find our forever home and we would definitely recommend his service to anyone that is looking for a home.

 

Simon is a very patient and efficient agent. We told him what we were looking for in what price range and in which area and he tries his best to show us the listings as soon as he finds them. As a buyer I search the internet to see what is available on the market Simon is willing to speak to the seller’s agents on our behalf and set up meetings as soon as possible. He is a very knowledgeable and professional agent and the results show. Simon offers professional advice to ensure that helps make a decision. As first time home buyers we were not very sure of everything required and what to look out for and Simon offered a lot of help and advice.


We are very happy to have Simon as our real estate agent and are very excited to move into our new home.

Simon has helped us to find an ideal house

We are moving from Ontario to Coquitlam with very limited knowledge about the area and Simon has helped us to find an ideal house. 

He is professional, knowledgeable, experienced in every aspect of helping us find an ideal property. He also has many contacts in the area to help us in renovating the house. He has done more than his duties as a realtor.

 Sharon Qiao (Buyer and Seller July 2015)

Thanks for all your help, Simon

Simon helped me to sell my apartment recently and my town house a few years ago.  Simon is very knowledgeable and experienced as a realtor.  He is very friendly and helpful too.  My townhouse was sold on the very first day it was listed and the apartment was sold in a very short time.  Thanks to Simon’s expert negotiation skills, my properties were sold at more than satisfactory prices. 

 

I really appreciate Simon’s excellent professional service and I highly recommend him to any one with real estate needs.

Testimonial of Simon's service as our realtor

Simon Yu inspires us as an extraordinary realtor who works in the total interest of his client(s), offering his many years of knowledge and experience of the housing market.  
He is a thoughtful, honest, enthusiastic and reassuring person--- he took the "fear and anxiety" of selling our house totally out of our experience.  He very literally stood by his promises and put us at ease when, after we signed the initial contract, he told us to "sit back and relax," while he would work to take care of everything else.

Simon went the "extra mile" to ensure everything was in order, including even personally cleaning stains on the floor and sun-deck, which truly impressed us about his attitude.  He was truly honest and considerate in that he did not over-exaggerate his estimate of a reasonable price for the house, nor did he pressurize or push us in any way at all throughout our entire experience with him.

 

We would unreservedly recommend Simon as realtor to any of our friends.

Testimonial from Dr. Salina K.Y. Cheng Principal of Salina Cheng Music Academy Examiner of the Royal Conservatory of Music

Mr. Simon Yu has been my realtor in the past three years and I found him trustworthy, reliable, knowledgeable, and competent.  I have had several realtors since my arrival in Canada twenty years ago, and he proves to be the best amongst others.  He has a good understanding of the real estate market trend, and is able to give relevant advices; in him, I found a deep knowledge of the market which other do not possess.  I have no reservation in recommending him to my friends and wishing him every success in his future endeavour.

 

Salina K.Y. Cheng (Seller March 2015)

We are very pleased with Simon's services and would highly recommend him

We recently moved from Calgary and purchased our home with the help of Simon Yu and his team.  We are very pleased with his services and would highly recommend him.

 

Firstly, Simon is a knowledgeable veteran in real estate with a wide network of contacts. He took us to view properties in our chosen areas, introducing us, newcomers, to neighborhoods in metro-Vancouver and other aspects relating to house construction and maintenance that owners should be aware of.

 

Secondly, Simon listens well.  His team took into consideration our preferences and limitations and tried to find the best match.  Simon doesn’t pressure or push; instead, he gave us several tools to explore on our own.  He is friendly and laid back but is prompt to return calls.

 

Simon was instrumental in negotiating and closing the deal.  He also methodically guided us on a smooth transition before moving in. We are glad Simon was our agent and would call on his expertise again in the future.

 

Jane and Alan Siu (Buyers, January 2015)

We highly recommend Simon to anyone planning to buy or sell

Simon Yu was our realtor for the purchase of a condo.  We were delighted with both his expertise and his helpful manner.  Simon took care of all the details in a prompt, thorough manner.  He provided all paperwork in paper and electronic forms, took care of arranging inspections, repairs, and all necessary arrangements in a straight-forward, efficient manner.  We highly recommend Simon to anyone planning to buy or sell.

 

Philip Coates (Buyer, August 2014)

I would definitely recommend Simon for any real estate needs.

In the past months, I've been struggling between work, family, studying and exams.  All of a sudden, my parents told me they wanted to sell the house they have been living in for almost 20 years.  I wondered how I would be able to handle this with so many things happening at once.  I thought of Simon since I knew his professionalism in the real estate business would be able to help me.  Simon helped my parents list their house, provided a professional market analysis, and patiently walked them through listing and selling procedures.  The house was sold in just three weeks at a very satisfactory price over our expectations.  Then he recommended my parents a mover to get rid of the junk which had accumulated over the past twenty years.  Simon also brought my parents around to view different apartments.  With his help, my parents found an apartment that was a perfect fit with their budget and expectations. There were so many details during this selling and buying process where Simon and his team showed their professionalism such as financing, legal procedures, matching dates between selling and buying and so on. There are too many to list them all out. In conclusion I would like to thank Simon and his team from the bottom of my heart for all the services they provided.  The whole process was unbelievably smooth.  I would definitely recommend Simon to my friends and relatives for any real estate needs. 

 

Alice Li (Buyer and Seller, July 2014)

As a Realtor, Simon has gone way beyond and above his call of duty

We are so grateful to have Simon as our realtor in search for our new home in Canada.  As a newcomer to the country, Simon has all the patience and time in touring us and explaining the differences between each suburb.  His excellent understanding of the real estate market together with his professional advises have helped us quickly find a house that suits us perfectly and yet within our budget in an uprising market. 

Not only did Simon took care of us through the purchase of the house, he was there to assist anytime needed with his extensive knowledge and network even after the deal is done. As a realtor, Simon has gone way beyond and above his call of duty.  We can hardly find another realtor who is as professional, hardworking, and enthusiastic with a kind and caring heart.   The word “Thank You” is just not enough to show our appreciation to him.  

 

我們感到非常幸運有Simon作我們的地產代理。初到貴境,東南西北還未清楚,每一區的好壞更不知道,但Simon不嫌其煩,清楚解釋每一區的特色及好壞,好讓我們很快決定心儀的地區。Simon對房地產的觸覺,賣家的心態都瞭如指掌,讓我們在買賣談判時往往處於上峰,買了一間我們心儀的房子。

Simon不單跟進整個買賣過程,就算在成交後,我們遇著任何問題,大至裝修疑問,小至找手推車,他都會在最短時間內用他的知識和廣闊的關係回答或作出幫助。

我們相信現今很難再找一位像Simon一樣那麼專業,勤奮,不怕麻煩和樂於助人的地產代理。我們對他的感謝真的不能用筆墨來形容。
