We recently sold a home at 1494 Madison Avenue in North Burnaby, a beautiful 5 bedroom custom designed house. The most premium marketing plan was employed to highlight this property and ensure it would stand-out from other listings on MLS®. Fortunately the home sold much faster than other listings in the area, and for a premium sale price too. Of course there were difficulties along the way, even a smooth sale requires a vast amount of work in the background. The fact is though, the home sold and the sellers achieved their goals.
There’s always a story behind every home sale, but there’s more to tell about this transaction. The sellers, Steve & Shalene Reimer had a plan to sell their home and move into an end-game house/acreage out of the city. For us, what an honor to have Steve & Shalene place their trust in us for this important move. This sale would be a major life changing event for their family.
What makes this sale extra special for us as Realtors, is the long history we’ve had with Steve & Shalene. Over the years we’ve been involved with some of their first home purchases, upgrades and then their final dream-home.
Along the way we’ve become friends with Steve & Shalene. We’ve also watched them build a life and raise a family. They have been wonderful clients to work with. Beyond the personal connection, there has been a working business relationship. Steve & Shalene have had the utmost confidence in our marketing and negotiating over the years. We have delivered.
Real estate is a lot of hard work and you’re faced with challenges on a daily basis. On TV there are so many shows which glorify the life as a real estate agent. There are many elements of these shows which are simply not reality. Real estate is countless hours of research, paperwork, planning, coordinating etc… I understand why the profession of a real estate agent has the highest attrition rate. For Jacky and I, working with wonderful clients such as Steve & Shalene makes our work so worth it. What keeps us motivated and enjoying real estate is the tight group of people who trust in our services year after year. Thank you to all of our amazing clients!
Steve & Shalene, Jacky and I wish you all the best, hope you enjoy your move.
