We engaged Steve to assist us in the purchase of a Whistler property in Kadenwood, as well as the subsequent sale of our town-home on Blackcomb. We were very appreciative of all the forthright advice provided by Steve and his intricate knowledge of the local market was invaluable. As part of the process, Steve also introduced us to a top-class home builder and an award-winning architect, showing a true understanding and appreciation of the high quality of workmanship we were seeking in the building of our new Whistler home. We would have no hesitation in recommending Steve to anyone seeking to purchase or sell a Whistler property.
Steve has handled all of our property dealings since we bought our first home in Whistler back in the late 1990’s. He has helped us to buy, to sell, to upgrade all the way to assessing whether to buy a plot and build our own dream home! Having been a realtor in Whistler since 1997, he not only knows the market intimately, he also has a deep and thorough understanding of the history of the market. That allows him to advise his clients on the right properties for them in the right locations; far more important than just showing the latest listings that happen to be on the market. Our experience with Steve has always been one of great knowledge, great experience, great patience and great professionalism. In a market that is over-brokered, there is no need to look elsewhere.
Steve helped us with our first purchase in Whistler, a nice two-bed condo perfectly suited to our young family. Steve’s expertise in the market, knowledge of what we needed and ability to get a good price for us was invaluable. Completing the purchase wasn’t the end of the service Steve provided. We knew that, someday, we would need a larger place in Whistler as our family grew. Over the years, Steve faithfully kept us updated on the Whistler market, new developments, sales trends and ideas of where we should look. Steve’s advice on location and value was always appreciated. Steve eventually found us the place we’ve always been looking for. Once again, Steve was great at advising on a fair price and assisting with both the purchase of the new place and the sale of the original place. We’re lucky to call Steve a friend and will certainly look to him in the future if we ever sell or buy in Whistler.
Throughout the period of our house purchase, from initial viewing (which Steve arranged literally within hours of asking), to final closing and beyond, Stephen was the consummate professional. More than this, however, Stephen provided a level of personal service and engagement that was exceptional. Ours was not the easiest purchase – the relatively short timeframe, our distance from Whistler and some renovation works required with the property all could have caused difficulties. With his local knowledge and genuine care, Steve proactively engaged with bankers, lawyers, solicitors, builders and decorators to smooth the path. And on closing he was there with us to celebrate the purchase of our beautiful Whistler home. Thank you Steve – I am sure we would never have completed without you!
Thank you so very much for your support, guidance and more importantly your in depth knowledge of the Whistler Real Estate Market. Your impressive familiarity with all things Whistler from tradespeople to ensuring we received financing was instrumental for us to achieve all of our goals. It also doesn’t hurt that you’re an all around honest, genuine and really just a great guy. My entire family thanks you so very much. See you when we upgrade!
Steve assisted us in acquiring a second unit at Four Seasons Whistler. He was prompt to return our emails and phone calls, and he was very professional in dealing with us. Once the contract was signed, Steve was able to provide us with an authorization letter from the vendor which allowed us to make timely winter reservations for usage after closing date. Without this letter we may not have been able to secure our preferred usage dates. We would not hesitate to recommend Steve for anyone looking to buy a Whistler property.
