Our results speak for themselves.

The sale was fast and Alan’s communication was exceptional

As a first time home buyer I really appreciated Alan’s guidance through the process.

He was there helping me through the many steps while explaining everything in understandable terminology. It really made the process much easier and less stressful. The great negotiation skills when making an offer really helped as well.

Listened to what we were looking for and took time to do research

As first time home buyers, Alan was an amazing match for us. He was very informant and he helped us through the entire process. He kept his calm and patience while we kept changing our mind about what exactly we were looking for. Vancouver has been very confusing , but we are grateful we worked with him.

He guided us in what to look for and also what to avoid . We had zillions of questions and he answered each one of them with a smile and very promptly too . It’s because of him we finally own an apartment in Vancouver, he made it happen for us. There is no doubt that we would work with anyone else but him in future.

Ravi & Shuchi

He went above and beyond. My wife and I both were blown away.

Working with Alan has been great.

He went above and beyond in helping us sell two rental properties over the course of six months.

Alan coordinated and communicated with all parties involved to make everything leading up to the sale go smooth and fast. His team transformed one of our places from looking honestly quite shabby to absolutely amazing in a matter of two weeks.

The videos and pics Alan’s team produced for both properties were top notch. My wife and I both were blown away when we saw them. His production team definitely made the listings stand out above the rest.

Besides all that Alan is just a really friendly guy you can trust and count on. We’ve gone with other agents in the past and they don’t compare to Alan’s work. I would recommend Alan to anyone looking to buy or sell in Vancouver.

-Jason & Alissa

The great negotiation skills when making an offer really helped as well.

I was referred to Alan by a friend of mine who spoke highly of him. Alan initially toured my home a year before I decided to list. Alan followed up with from time to time and when I was finally ready I contacted him to put my condo up for sale. The sale was fast and Alan’s communication was exceptional. I would refer and use Alan again.

- Adam

Listened to what we were looking for and took time to do research

Alan has been wonderful to us and allowed us to see what made sense without making us feel like he was selling something. We liked his soft approach and making us feel like family. Alan listened to what we were looking for and actually took the time to do research. We are grateful that we found the place that fit.

- Lilette and Tony

Went above and beyond to help us buy and sell in a very tough market

Thank you so much to Alan for helping us find our dream home.

He went above and beyond to help us buy and sell in a very tough market. Showing us many properties until we found ‘the one.’ He always made time for us while brilliantly marketing and showing our home. We can’t express how grateful and appreciative we are to Alan. We highly recommend him as a great realtor, and as a friend! We look forward to working with him again!

- Kurt and Christa

Knowledge of the housing market is exceptional

Alan’s knowledge of the housing market is exceptional and his dedication to what he does is incredible and inspiring.

The advice he gives is unbiased and always accurate. With that said he is also very unassuming and humble. I cannot commend and recommend Alan enough. He listens to and hears exactly what you want, and doesn’t impose his own assumptions or presumptions. He works extremely diligently and makes himself available at any time for his clients.

He is in the business of turning people’s dreams into reality and he takes that job very seriously.

- Ed and Nikki

On time, prepared, and always had my best interest at heart

Alan was really knowledgeable about both Vancouver and North Van, as I was looking at both markets. This was a huge plus, as I’ve found most agents specialize in just one area. Alan showed me numerous properties and was always 5 minutes early with all the details reviewed, and info sheets for me. Instead of looking to make a quick sale, Alan guided me away from one I was about to make an offer on, into a much better investment, and I’m so thrilled with the view condo I ended up buying downtown. I can’t recommend Alan highly enough for his knowledge, dedication, eye for small details, and also he’s just a great guy to be around for weeks on end looking at places. Thanks so much Alan!

Want to compliment Alan on how comfortable he made my family and I feel during the entire process

While searching for a home, Alan listened to what features and elements we were looking for, and was able to narrow down the search to a neighbourhood and home that suited our lifestyle and needs. Whenever I brought a property to his attention, Alan was very quick to respond with the history of the home, and all notable information to assess if we wanted to arrange a viewing.

Has anyone mentioned how good Alan is with children? When viewing potential places, we brought our two young children along, and Alan engaged them and really considered what they enjoyed about the viewing. My kids still lament about how they “love this house that Alan found”.

Lastly, I want to compliment Alan on how comfortable he made my family and I feel during the entire process. His patience and professionalism shined, and it’s clear his passion is to ensure his clients are a priority; Alan made us feel that he was always available, and that he was there to support us.

Alan, thank you once again for such service. We’re blessed to find a perfect home to build our memories, and it all started with Alan.

He has been nothing short of a dream

I’ve dealt with Alan now on 3 occasions. Selling, buying, and selling again. He has been nothing short of a dream to deal with. As soon as we sat down and began talking about what worked best for me. He had multiple plans of attack. He comes in with the highest quality of materials for people to see when they come in to view. He has the best communication with every detail of the process. And no question is too dumb for him to answer if it provides more clarity. I highly recommend Alan to anyone looking to buy or sell. You will not be disappointed in your choice as he will provide an amazing experience from start to finish.

Always Quick to understand my needs

Alan is always a pleasure to work with.

He was always quick to understand my needs and helped me navigate through the process of selling and purchasing a new home.

The listing and materials looked great and definitely helped me achieve a record-setting price per square foot for my home!

A one-stop-shop to guide us through the process from start to finish

Alan was referred to us by friends who bought their first two homes with his assistance. Being first-time homebuyers ourselves, we needed a lot of help. He was a one-stop-shop to guide us through the process from start to finish, taking the time to answer questions whenever needed. He made the home buying experience fun with his friendly demeanor, and then when it came to the late-night negotiations he was in it to win for us.

We found our perfect home in an older, spacious condo in North Van we would update to exactly how we wanted it. Whatever you are looking to do with your new home, he has an extensive network of high-quality connections to help you out…from the home inspection to the lawyer to many various tradespeople, he probably knows a guy for that.

I suppose one day we’ll move from here and will need his services again…until then all I can say is if you’re looking for someone you can trust to act in your best interest and find you the home you want, he is your guy.

We worked with Alan to accomplish something that I didn’t think was possible.

We worked with Alan to accomplish something that I didn’t think was possible. Sell two condos and purchase a single family home (with very specific requirements in a specific neighbourhood) in a short period of time in a changing market.

Alan was very patient through out the whole process and answered all my questions (and I had A LOT of them) even before we agreed to work together.

Properly’s offering and Alan’s network and expertise helped make what could’ve been a stressful and time consuming process quick and easy.

My family and I always felt that Alan had our best interest at heart which we are grateful for.

Would I recommend Alan and Properly? Absolutely!
