My brother, sister and I recently had the daunting task of selling our mother’s apartment in West Vancouver. It was in a Coop which made it incredibly difficult to sell. Erica took on the challenge for us. She was positive and supportive throughout the process. She took the time to educate herself on all the “idiosyncrasies” involved in selling a Coop. She worked tirelessly to bring in potential buyers and when the time came she not only negotiated a great price on our behalf, but she was able to negotiate the sale of all the furniture as well! Erica was great to deal with, keeping us informed regularly on everything to do with the listing from start to finish. She is rare in an industry where you often feel like the Realtor is only really looking out for themselves. Erica was an absolute pleasure to work with and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone considering buying or selling!

Erica went above and beyond all my expectations of what a Realtor could do for me. It was clear that she had my best interests in mind and didn't nudge anything that wasn't to my benefit. She worked with me to cover details that as a first-time home buyer, I wasn't aware of myself. These included voluntarily mocking up a layout of the space I was interested in and from there creating a list of renovations and budgeted those renovations to show just what I could accomplish with my apartment. She responded promptly to all questions via email and text and never hesitated to drive wherever necessary to meet in person.
Buying for the first time can be a very intimidating experience but Erica made it easy to understand and something that was exciting. She also came with solid recommendations for contacts that could help round out the purchase and I also had great experiences with them. Bottom line: I really felt like she cared what I cared about and that goes a very long way. I recommend her highly and without hesitation.

Erica helped my family and I sell our townhouse this winter and I cannot express how positive an experience it was working with her.
My parents and I have bought and sold several properties in the past and were blown away with the amount of research and information Erica brought to the table. Previous realtors we've worked with did not nearly go into the depth that Erica had prepared, and her efforts immediately put us all at ease. We knew we were in great hands when it came to evaluating the price at which to list our home, how the entire selling process would look, beginning with clean up and staging all the way through to move out, and how she would work best to represent our home to potential buyers.
Erica set expectations with a practical and professional manner. When decisions were made as a family, she gave us the information and provided her professional opinions without any pressure. During the pre-listing process, as new information came into the local market, Erica would update us so that we could adjust our expectations and listing price.
Erica's staging services are very recommended. My family home needed a lot of work to be suitable for showing during the two-day open house and Erica guided my family towards presenting the best possible image of our townhouse. By the time she hired a professional photographer for our listing pictures, she had truly transformed the place.
Erica's work promoting the open house brought so much interest to our property that the open house was fully packed on both days and by Monday afternoon we had multiple offers to review. The negotiation process was swift and comfortable due to Erica's experience. She represented my family's interests in a firm yet fair manner, and secured a selling price far above our initial expectations. We had an accepted offer signed within a couple of hours. This allowed my sister to make a decision on buying another condo and Erica had offer into and accepted by the seller that same evening.
Working with Erica was truly a magnificent experience. I would recommend her as a realtor to anyone buying or selling who is looking for a full-service experience.
Thank you Erica!
Erica helped me upgrade my investment property, a 20 year old building in Coal Harbour, with the “Finishing Touch” interior design package and it turned out “WOW”!
It’s better than a brand new building now! I was speechless. It has been done so great that I actually would like to go back to live there!! The upgrades have made the rental income increase by 25%. It’s just way beyond my expectations.
Erica is truly the best!

We purchased our home from out-of-province but Erica made us feel like we were purchasing a home next door. Her communication with us was unrivalled; despite the physical distance during the home buying process, Erica ensured that we were always updated. Erica followed up on all of our questions promptly and clearly. She went out of her way to ensure that our home met our standards.
Erica managed the entire purchasing process with great personal care. She spoke with our Strata, effectively communicated with the selling agent, contacted contractors with questions, and provided sound advice while navigating the purchase.
Furthermore, Erica’s eye for design shone through as we moved in. She made fantastic suggestions for living space layouts, arrangements and functional furniture, and even colour coordinating recommendations.
Erica was an invaluable resource to us and our next sale and purchase will certainly be made with Erica’s help.

Erica, when we decided to work with you we had heard so much positive feedback about you and had high expectations. You exceeded all of our expectations!
You made the whole experience stress free and easy. Your pointers such as making the bathroom more aesthetic and clearing up the living space helped attract a lot more prospects. Also your calm personality made is easy for us to talk to you and made the process smooth. And not only did you find us excellent tenants, you also found them by our preferred deadline.
You were an excellent problem solver throughout the whole process and provided us with solutions that we possibly couldn't think off. It was very apparent you have so much knowledge about the Tenancy Act. Thank you again for all your help, now we can sleep peacefully at night knowing we have great tenants taking care of our place. We will refer you to any family and friends without a hesitation!

Within days we were getting calls from our agent Erica to show our property and soon thereafter, the condo was leased. She was very thorough and presented herself very professionally. She answered all our questions regarding the listing procedure and walked us through the entire process from beginning to end.
In short, it was a great experience and I consider her a friend. I would recommend this service to anyone who is looking for a someone who is proactive and result oriented and gets a lot of requests for rentals, short and long term, and leaves the final decision to you.
Keep up the good work!
Thinking I was looking for a one-month stay somewhere so I could keep looking for the right apartment to rent or condo to buy, I suddenly sold my house and had only a month before moving out. The perfect apartment, the perfect building, just where I wanted to be and professional friendly people put it all together. Erica quickly got me in to see the suite and meet the owner. Even better than the photos. She guided me through what I had to do as a potential (and later, accepted) tenant. I can't wait to move in! Strongly recommend!
I have really appreciated your personalized emails and know that your excellent communication skills will serve you very well in the real estate industry. Good Luck with all future endeavours!
Erica was invaluable in helping us look for a unit. She's friendly, professional and went the extra mile to ensure our needs were met.
I would definitely recommend Erica to anyone looking for a place to live in Vancouver.

I was moving across the country and Erica made finding a place seamless and very easy. Erica organized all of the paperwork for me and made it so easy (even staying late one evening to resend a rogue email!). I highly recommend her services; I think this was the easiest apartment hunting/lease signing I have ever done!
When I accepted a professional role in a new city, I called Erica and she found a suitable tenant that was able to move into my apartment within days. I found her to be professional, committed to the task and willing to go out of her way to ensure the suite was rented quickly.
My husband and I first met Erica about two years ago when we had first purchased an additional rental unit in Vancouver. Later we engaged her to take care of an important aspect of property management – that being finding and screening suitable tenants for our property. We were very pleased with the placement she made for us.
This year I was on the design committee of the strata council of a 440 unit complex in downtown Vancouver. My committee was tasked with resigning the lobby of the building, designing and installing a concierge desk, new carpet, new paint and lobby furniture. Erica won the bid and I was very pleased with the end result.
Through the contact I have had with Erica I can tell you that she is a good listener, has a very good understanding of contracts and is an excellent resource in terms of forming a team of sub-contractors and suppliers. She is very outgoing, cheerful and very dedicated to further personal and professional development.

"I have been to the two seminars of the group, with both meetings "beyond expectation."
The first meeting was about the financial aspects of buying a home and the second meeting was advice for the first-time home buyers in BC, Canada. The "board" of the group are 6 members including a Realtor®, a mortgage broker, a home inspector, an insurance representative relating to real-estate needs, a lawyer and a financial planner.
They form a streamline to cooperate in providing the service of real-estate trading. The seminar is highly efficient, informative and it will reward the participants with answering the questions by the professionals. It is worth the time to go and discuss with them together if you are planning to buy a real estate. Beautiful... Enjoy..."
First-Time Home Buyer Seminar
"I cannot recommend this seminar enough. Unless you are a real estate guru, you are bound to learn something, and more than likely you'll learn far more than you ever expected. For first-time home buyers, I'd go so far as to say you NEED to go to this seminar."
First-Time Home Buyer Seminar
"I went in expecting to learn a lot and I wasn't disappointed - to say the least.
The seminar was scheduled in such a way to give you a personal account of the roles of the professionals involved in the home buying process. We received straightforward breakdown from a Wealth Advisor, Mortgage Broker, Home Insurance Agent, Home Inspector, Real Estate Lawyer and Realtor® on what they do for you - in person and behind the scenes, how much they potentially cost (which was surprisingly reasonable if not free) and why they are an integral part of purchasing a home.
The information given barely scratched the surface of the knowledge and expertise present at the seminar. Everyone was approachable and helpful, answering the overwhelming flood of questions, and I won't hesitate to ask them the inevitable follow-up questions.
The First-Time Home Buyer Seminar is perfect for: anyone that will want to buy a home, whether in 10 years or in the next 6 months, if you think the bank and the Realtor® are all you need, or if you simply don't know where to start this daunting acquisition. Go arm yourself with the tools to make the process as smooth as possible; you won't regret it."
