The most satisfying moment of my job is seeing the smiles once we’ve accomplished our goals. Thank you to my clients, for trusting me with your business. I truly appreciate your kind words and referrals.
Putting first time homebuyers at ease!
We’re first time home-buyers from the UK with very little knowledge of the crazy Canadian property market!
We were recommended to meet up with Brendan from a friend who had recently bought a house with his help. From the first meeting Brendan was open, honest and clear and made us feel very supported as we started our house buying journey. We were worried about being taken advantage of having no knowledge of how the system works but Brendan always put us at ease, making sure we had all the information we needed to make our own decision. I’ve heard that realtors can push you into seeing or choosing properties, but this was never the case. We had a solid list of potential places to see and he was happy to add more or chop and change as we wanted.
Over time what we wanted changed and Brendan was quick to alter his search criteria to ensure we were always seeing relevant places. (Unsurprisingly!) my partner and I didn’t always agree on what we wanted to see or what we liked, so we got the addition of a relationship mediator with Brendan! Brendan took us to open houses and private viewings and we felt that he always had our schedule in mind when booking anything in.
Communication was always prompt, clear and helpful. He offered the added touches of dropping us back off at work after a weekday viewing which just helped to make the process much less stressful. He let us come to our decision after seeing places, and would add in valuable comments about aspects of the property that we hadn’t considered.
When it came time to make an offer, the process went very quickly and he supported us through the nerve wracking time. He successfully negotiated the final price and kept in touch while we prepared for the move.
In case you can’t tell by now, I strongly recommend Brendan for those looking at buying a property. We have referred him to friends, who are currently going through all that house-buying fun with him now. We’ll be reaching back out to Brendan if we look to move again in the future.
A cut above the rest
I was recommended to meet with Brendan by a friend who would not shut up about great her experience with him was.
On the initial meeting, I came clean to say that I had no idea what I was doing, as I was a first time buyer, and also an immigrant from the UK. Brendan had supported others through this experience and was unfazed! Brendan calmly talked me through the process, and asked me questions to find out whether what I was looking for would be achievable.
Brendan was realistic all the way through. My big ask was that my apartment be big dog friendly, as it’s also been my dream to have a Great Dane. Brendan understood that this was non-negotiable, but made me aware that it would reduce my options down. Right away I felt at ease discussing the whole process with him, and I felt I didn’t need to look any further for my realtor.
Brendan’s knowledge of the Vancouver market was incredible, he knew so much about the history of Vancouver construction, and he was always able to make me aware of pros and cons of different places. Brendan’s urge to let me find the right place for me meant that sometimes he didn’t speak up about things that may have been minor considerations on each property, whether they be pros or cons – it’s all part of the process, of him getting to know me and what’s important to me. I will now comment that he could have let on more – I relied on his superb experience to direct me!
Ultimately, the process was short and sweet: we saw around 10 properties that could meet my house goals, and the last one ticked all my boxes. I knew that Brendan would always offer me his honest advice. I asked him SO MANY QUESTIONS! Brendan was always able to give his professional opinion and guidance throughout the whole process.
Brendan is exemplary as his years of experience and high attention to detail showed that he was a cut above the rest. I couldn’t imagine trying to go through this process with anyone else. I wasn’t stressed in making my decisions, or in any part of the process.
This was the smoothest house move I’ve made in my life, and that I would say is 100% down to him. Thank you, Brendan!
Knowledgeable, flexible, professional
Brendan is very knowledgeable about Burnaby condos. He is well capable of suggesting certain buildings to look into based on your unique needs.
In my case, I was looking for something that will be liquid and has the potential for appreciation and he was well capable of picking a few buildings to pursue.
Despite being busy with many clients, he still was reachable whenever I needed to communicate with him. He worked around my work/personal schedule and was flexible to use methods of communications that are more convenient for me. I work long days and Brendan was always able to communicate key points over text messages and kind enough to speak with me outside of normal business hours (at times late in the evening and on weekends).
What I liked most about working with Brendan was his professional conduct. In addition to being utterly courteous, he was patient with my questions, and above all, within a few weeks, I figured I could trust him with one of my most important financial transactions and that in this journey, he held my interest above all.
He was always listening and was never pushing me to make a decision or move ahead with placing an offer. When it came to placing offers, I relied on Brendan in doing the market research and suggesting the appropriate offer prices and he seemed to be in the right neighborhoods. He was not hesitant to do the work and place an offer on a property, even though we knew that with the limits that we had set for our offer we may not necessarily be the winner but we still wanted to have an offer and try our luck for the property.
Brendan is very well connected and was able to refer me to other professionals that facilitated this transaction. He communicated well with my lawyer and mortgage broker and helped take off a lot of load off my shoulders during the days leading up to closing. He also works well with many other real estate agents and is aware of market trends in various areas of Vancouver.
I enjoyed working with Brendan and would do it again if I were to do it all over again.
Superbly professional and a pleasure to have as our agent
Brendan was great to deal with for our sale. He advised us well on various listing and presentation aspects, assisted with the process in many ways, and showed our suite personally to a large number of prospective buyers. He was always prompt and clear with information, as well as being superbly professional and a pleasure to have as our agent. We would definitely recommend Brendan and would utilize his services again in the future.
Patience, honesty, integrity
Thank you so much for helping me buy my first home! You were fantastic to work with throughout the process. I didn’t realize how much time and effort it takes to buy a home. Thanks for your patience, integrity and honesty. I won’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a professional REALTOR®.
Honest, trustworthy, strong negotiator
I have used Brendan Connolly to sell two of my downtown condos.
He has proven to me that he is honest, trustworthy, and a strong negotiator. His experience and extensive knowledge of the Vancouver real estate market helped me get top dollar for my homes.
I would not hesitate to recommend Brendan to anyone who is looking for a strong REALTOR® who puts his client’s needs at the forefront.
Professional, follows up, gets deals done
I arrived in Vancouver with the intention of buying a house quickly.
I went to 18 open homes in Kitsilano over a weekend and as a result met many REALTORS®.
Brendan was one of two who followed me up and asked the questions to discover my circumstances.
Even though Brendan was the listing Realtor, I used him to buy that house.
He is professional, quick to follow up and gets deals done.
I have recommended Brendan to friends and colleagues without hesitation and will be certain to use him again when I next buy or sell.
Dedication, open communication style
We forgot the extent of the process and we appreciate the dedication and time you spent going through it with us and explaining everything. Your open and honest communication style helped us get through the process with a minimum of stress. We will be happy to recommend you to anyone looking to sell or buy a home.
A great choice!
Brendan was a great choice. I can’t say enough good things about him. He was great to deal with, we always felt like he we thinking with our best interests in mind. We sold our place with in a week, the listing Brendan created was very professional and almost certainly helped us with our sale. Brendan also helped us purchase a new place and negotiate a deal with multiple offers helping us end up with the home of our dreams. We will happily use Brendan again.
No pressure, super-easy to communicate with
As first time home-buyers, we came into this process with a lot of questions, and a lot of trepidation about entering into the Vancouver condo market. Brendan was super easy to communicate with and was really open to our million questions every step of the way. He had great insights and never pressured us to do anything we didn’t feel 100% about. He helped us find a place that we love at a price that we feel really good about. We are so happy in our first home and a big part of that is thanks to Brendan. I’ll definitely be recommending him to friends!
Professional and great at what he does!
We had our first initial meeting with Brendan in July. During this meeting he really took the time to find out who we were and what we were really looking for in our first future home. Being both new to property buying as well as buying in Canada, Brendan thoroughly explained the process and how the viewings would work.
We started properly looking in September and it was all systems go with Brendan arranging viewings that worked around our busy work schedule. During these viewings he would have a great eye for both the positives and negatives of each place and would really take notice of what elements we were keen on.
Once we found the home we wanted to buy, Brendan talked us through the process and made the final purchase very stress free and easy. Now we’re very happily moved into our very own space. I couldn’t recommend Brendan enough. As well as being very professional and great at what he does, he’s also a pleasure to hang around with during the viewings and he really made us feel confident in our purchase choice.
Proven sales skills in any market
This is the second time we have had Brendan as our agent. Our first experience was over six years ago when Brendan sold our home in a market not as robust as the present. We were pleased with his skills to get the best price possible in a soft market.
This year we have decided to down size to a townhouse. Again we called Brendan to work for us. This time the market was much different, being a seller’s market. Brendan listed our home, and we received multiple offers within one week . We found it interesting to watch Brendan capably conduct interviews in a professional manner with agents presenting their offers (nine in total). At the end of the process we accepted an offer that was well over asking price and one that gave us time to find the home of our choice.
We do not hesitate to recommend Brendan as a REALTOR®. He is not only a competent Realtor, we feel he is our friend.
Professional, friendly, helpful. I’m ecstatic with the results
I met Brendan at an open house he was showing and he was very professional and courteous. Afterwards, Brendan invited me to coffee so he could explain the market and the whole offer process to me. He was very thorough and wanted me to have the facts before I made a decision, there was no pressure at all. It was because of those reasons I decided to go with Brendan.
The offer process went smoothly and Brendan was able to negotiate favorably for me. Every time I had a question he was able to get back to me quickly. In the end, Brendan was able to get the unit I really wanted for me and I am absolutely grateful.
I would recommend Brendan to anyone looking for an experienced REALTOR®.
Honest, professional and no-nonsense approach
The sale of my townhouse is the fifth real estate deal I have done with Brendan. I have used Brendan to buy and sell my homes over the years because of his honest, professional and no-nonsense approach. I would highly recommend Brendan to anyone looking for a professional REALTOR®. He gets his clients what they want!
Efficient, organized, professional
I just wanted to send you a thank you note for helping me get through this difficult time in selling Dad’s house. You have been efficient, organized, and I appreciate your professionalism.
If anyone in my network of family, friends or associates is looking for the services of a REALTOR®, I will certainly tell them to contact you.
Professional and a sharp negotiator
We have recently bought and sold with Brendan Connolly as our agent and wanted to let you know how much we appreciated working with him. Brendan made our experience stress and hassle free by looking after all the details and providing us with expert advice.
We met Brendan at an open house and were immediately impressed with his demeanor and the wealth of knowledge he had of the property and area. He continued to follow up with us over the next few months and when we decided to sell, Brendan was one of the REALTORS® we interviewed. After sitting down, going through his thoughts on our home, the current market trends and how we should position our home to achieve the best possible price we decided Brendan would be our REALTOR®.
We are extremely happy with our decision and would recommend hiring Brendan to anyone looking to sell a home or buy a new one. We found him to be one step ahead of the market, very professional, honest and a sharp negotiator.
Brendan worked on the sale of my mother’s home with great skill and conviction. When I was ready to buy my first home in Cranbrook B.C. he took the time out of his busy schedule to take a 10 hour drive there and back to make sure I was making the right decision for me and my family. Brendan found things in the land title that would have been not in my best interest. I was amazed at his knowledge of the stipulations. He made the appropriate changes and now me and my wife are happily in our new home. Excellent job!
