When my wife and I first started talking to Chris about real estate in 2004, he told us that his focus was long-term relationships and not just pushing for the quick sale. Over almost ten years, we have bought or sold five properties with him and that still holds true today. He has great knowledge of the real estate market in both East Vancouver and beyond, whether it is condos, duplexes or houses. When our family made the decision to move again, we had no hesitation in contacting Chris at Uptown Vancouver. He was able to sell our 1/2 duplex in under a week and negotiate a great price. The selling process was stress free, from listing, to open houses to inspections and subject removal. Chris always had the right advice and good ideas to deal with the challenges presented. He seems to excel in knowing just the right balance between staging and retaining the character that makes the property look like a home and was always available to answer any questions we might have. On the buy side, he is well versed in negotiating strategies and has great presentation skills, making the most of any offer. We found him able to tailor his approach to our individual needs providing us with all the information we needed to make the right decision in our next move. We couldn't be happier with how smooth everything went and how everything lined up from the sell and the buy. Their knowledge of the Vancouver real estate market is second to none.

Marcus provided invaluable assistance in finding me and my dog a new home. We viewed numerous properties and even when I was becoming frustrated and anxious, he always kept his cool, maintaining a calm, professional and dignified approach. Marcus provided quick and timely responses by email and telephone to my requests for additional information and/or viewings on specific properties. He also offered objective advice and opinions on properties viewed. His professional manner while representing me to sellers/agents ultimately sealed my contract of purchase for my new home - a comment also made by the sellers' agent. Marcus was successful in representing me in the financial aspect of my offer as well as securing the dates for closing and possession to coincide with the sale of my home, knowing that mine was up against two other offers for the same property. Throughout the 'finding a new home' process, I was very comfortable with Marcus and the respect shown to him by other realtors/agents representing the sellers reinforced my feelings. I thank you, as do my family members who feared that Mylo and I would be at their doorsteps looking for a temporary home."
