  • You want her on your side of the table
    You want her on your side of the table
    Bernadette and her team are amongst the most professional service providers I have ever met in my long career, providing classy service above and beyond the call of duty. Bernadette herself is committed and responsive, has a boundless energy and is extremely knowledgeable regarding real estate on the North Shore. You want her on your side of the table and not opposite, trust me. She has also built a very professional team to work with her, including Thomas who tackled the bank manager for us when my partner was sick. That is service. They just make it happen, even if its not strictly a Real Estate Agent thing. And lastly, the creative flair and intelligence, not to mention the poise and professionalism, they put into the presentation of your property is quite literally breath-taking. From totally beautiful brochures and pictures, to hugely effective social media engagements, to sunset open house showings with delicious wines matched to a cold cut charcuterie and olive board – I’ve never seen or heard anything like it.

  • Her genuine desire to make her clients happy – it is definitely not measured in Dollars.
    Her genuine desire to make her clients happy – it is definitely not measured in Dollars.
    It gives us great pleasure to write this review as Bernadette truly provided excellent and personal service during the record time it took her to sell our condominium.  We enjoyed the rapport we had with her throughout the process.  To Bernadette, it was not just a business transaction –  she was aware and understood that for us it was an important transaction at this stage of our life. Bernadette displayed all the attributes that we were looking for in a Realtor, i.e. work ethics, honesty, integrity, and sound judgment.   We were very impressed with her in-depth knowledge as well as her marketing campaign.   Where other properties  in the same area were on the market for quite some time, Bernadette achieved the sale of ours in absolute record time. At the heart of Bernadette’s success is her passion for her work and her genuine desire to make her clients happy – it is definitely not measured in Dollars.   Michael and Thea
  • We highly recommend Bernadette
    We highly recommend Bernadette
    Bernadette was recommended to us by a previous client of hers, who was very pleased with her service.  My mother was selling the family home and downsizing to an apartment, and Bernadette was the realtor for both.  We found Bernadette to be well informed about the market conditions, she provided excellent analysis and recommendations on pricing and timing, and she had a thorough marketing plan which was executed quickly and flawlessly.  My mother was able to sell and purchase in a short period of time, making the process easier for her.  We really enjoyed working with Bernadette on a personal level as well, her genuine warmth and caring nature helped my mother feel comfortable through a huge life transition. We highly recommend Bernadette.

  • After one year with another agent with no offers, sold in 2 weeks with Bernadette
    After one year with another agent with no offers, sold in 2 weeks with Bernadette
    Bernadette is a true professional that understands the complexities of today’s marketplace, giving her clients an edge in the ultra-competitive BC market. After using an agent that was referred to us, our condo sat on the market unsold for almost a year. We decided to make a change and interviewed a number of agents, eventually selecting Bernadette. From the beginning, we noticed a change in energy and focus. Within 2 weeks our condo was sold. Bernadette was also instrumental in helping us to navigate the incredibly competitive west side duplex/townhouse market. In the end, we managed to not only purchase a residence that far exceeded our expectations but also closed the deal at under market value in Kitsilano. What a feat. Thanks Bernadette. Doug and Kate
  • Without your advice, we would have paid tens of thousands more
    Without your advice, we would have paid tens of thousands more
    Thanks so much for your work helping us find our dream retirement home. We’re really looking forward to moving in. Without your expert advice and negotiating savvy during the offer process I believe we would have paid tens of thousands more than we did or might not have got the home at all. Andrew and Cynthia

    Bernadette did a masterful, professional job of selling my house; her assessment of the market was completely accurate and her sales strategy was entirely appropriate to those market conditions. As well, I believe that her attention to presenting the house to its maximum advantage contributed significantly to the ultimate selling price.

    We will be recommending you to everyone that we know
    We want to thank all three of you for all of your hard work to sell our house. This last week has been one of the craziest weeks of our lives and ended last night better than we could have ever have imagined. This morning we are still in complete shock (and a little hungover) by how crazy and fast this entire process was.  We will be recommending you to everyone that we know is planning on buying or selling. Thank you again for everything! April and Blayne    
  • Thank you so much for making the sale of my home easy
    Thank you so much for making the sale of my home easy
    Thank you so much for all your recent efforts in selling my home. My goal was for a very quick sale for a fair price and your efforts were stellar. Your knowledge of the market and your advice in all aspects of the sale process were greatly appreciated. You truly were willing to go the extra mile and even though I know you must be quite busy, I felt that you were always there for me. In particular, I appreciate your upbeat, positive attitude and responsiveness in what can typically be quite a stressful process for the seller. Thank you so much for making the sale of my home easy. I will heartily refer you to others. All the best for your continued success. Kathryn  
  • Bernadette is the best and I recommend her to everybody
    Bernadette is the best and I recommend her to everybody
    Bernadette was recommended to me when I had my home in Edgemont listed with another agent for 6 weeks and had no offers. I quickly learned that she was different from other agents. She walked through my home and thoughtfully pointed out what Buyers would love about my house and suggested specific changes in furniture layout and staging. Bernadette truly cares and is hands-on. She helped me throughout the entire process. She relisted and unrolled a comprehensive market campaign for my home and within one day of listing, she generated so much buzz on my home that I received two offers! I engaged Bernadette again to sell my luxury condo for my next move. Bernadette’s creative, custom marketing program and dedicated professionalism brought me two offers and garnered a record sale price for units within the building.  She then worked tirelessly with compassion and commitment to find me the perfect home, securing the right property at the best price possible. Bernadette genuinely cares, is dedicated to ensuring client satisfaction and brings a full service approach to real estate. I have high standards for service and I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone buying or selling no matter how challenging the market. Bernadette is the best and I recommend her to everybody to talk to!

    Bernadette is a superb Realtor. From recognizing and capitalizing on the unique elements of my house, to engaging professional resources and marketing, to doggedly liaising with myself and prospective buyers on intricate details, her efforts and dedication were impressive. A genuinely positive and approachable attitude throughout sealed the deal. I recommend Bernadette as a Realtor, and will use her myself again should the opportunity arise. Cassandra and Tim Ryce

    Our experience with Bernadette was the best we have had with any Real Estate Agent we have worked with. From the moment we listed our home until we closed on our new home she was professional, patient and incredibly informative every step of the way. All of the marketing materials she presented for the sale of our home were professional and beautiful. Her negotiating skills and expertise about the market in our neighbourhood were huge assets to us when buying. Bernadette loves her job and it’s evident in everything she does but she doesn’t JUST love it, she also excels at it.

    I can’t thank Bernadette enough for all of her hard work.  Bernadette worked TIRELESSLY to first sell our home and then to purchase our new one.  She is very knowledgeable about the market and her marketing plan, I believe, really helped us to sell our home quickly in just 6 days. Her print work as well as the open house video which she organized were so beautifully done.  Her work is meticulous and she went really above and beyond to get the deals done quickly and efficiently.  I was so impressed with her relationship with other realtors and her ability to negotiate well for us and to be our voice.  We found a fantastic home thanks to Bern and we will not hesitate to refer her to our friends and family. She has the patience of a saint!!  Thank you again for everything.

    “She was always one step ahead of us” Working with Bernadette to sell and buy our home was like a dream! We could not have imagined a better experience. She was always one step ahead of us. Thorough. Knowledgable. Current. She is just the complete package. The help she gave us throughout the entire process far exceeded just negotiating a great price. We are very much looking forward to working with her again in the future. Thanks!

    This is just a note to thank you for all your efforts on our behalf. I want you to know that both Len and I were most impressed, not only by doggedness and determination in selling our home, but also for the cheery, friendly, never-say-die approach you took in doing so. Many realtors can lay claim to attention to detail and knowledge of the market – two areas in which you also shine – but none in my opinion can match your wonderful spirit as you led us through what can be a particularly trying time in one’s life. Your willingness to hold open houses weekend after weekend in an uncertain market and your complete lack of what I can only call pushiness will always be remembered and appreciated by us. Never did we feel pressured, either in buying or selling. You were always fair and honest. For this you have our sincere thanks and we wish you great success in the future.  

    Best wishes

    Bernadette helped us sell our townhouse at The Manor at Edgemont and buy a new home in Lower Lonsdale in the spring of 2012. In both transactions, Bernadette’s knowledge of the market, negotiating skills and professional advice proved invaluable. Her marketing strategy for the sale of our home was realistic and achievable, and included a level of commitment to our success that went way beyond what we had expected.

    Bernadette’s support and advice on everything from preparing our home for sale to keeping us informed on a daily basis of her progress convinced us that we made the right choice in selecting her to represent our interests. When it came to negotiating our sale, Bernadette’s diplomacy and tact avoided a protracted process and ensured an amicable and satisfying agreement with the purchasers. Then, switching to the purchase of our new home, Bernadette’s guidance and market savvy ensured that we made the right offer at the right time to secure the perfect property for our needs.

    “We would highly recommend Bernadette – she was truly a pleasure to work with and made the selling and buying process a lot easier.  We were impressed with her knowledge, professionalism and high level of service.  Bernadette provided very valuable advice on the entire process including staging, pricing, desirable areas, things to watch out for when purchasing, etc. Her marketing materials were very professional and she has access to a great network of high quality professionals related to the buying/selling process. 

    Above all, we trusted that Bernadette was always working for our best interests and was extremely understanding and accommodating of our (ever changing) needs.  Thanks, Bernadette!”

    Well, thanks to you and Mike for your perseverance and hard work to flush-out an interested party that wanted to partake in our price range. It was a good provided referral and collective decision to take you on as our agent Bernadette.  In my opinion, this sale will impact all the future sales in the Manor (at Edgemont).  Good for you & Mike, and good for all the future owners/sellers that utilize your collective expertise in marketing this somewhat unique property in the North Shore.

    Thank you again for everything.

    We were very impressed with Bernadette’s organization, professionalism and knowledge of the real estate industry, and her calm, flexible and approachable style. It was refreshing to work with a real estate agent who went above and beyond to make the selling process as seamless as possible for our family. Bernadette was always available to address our questions and concerns, no matter how big or small. 

    Bernadette’s marketing plan was thorough and detailed; in particular, the print material was professionally done and very impressive.  Bernadette was able to market our home in several mediums within a short period of time, ultimately showcasing our home for a quick and profitable sale.  The keepsake photo book and other goodies were greatly appreciated!   We would definitely ask Bernadette to help us with any future real estate purchases or sales and didn’t hesitate to refer our parents to her after our positive experience. Thank you Bernadette!

    Buying and selling one’s home is always a stressful endeavor. Bernadette was the right choice for us when we decided to make a move. We were impressed with her professional manner, intelligence, and dedication to providing excellent service.  She has a thorough knowledge of the industry, and excels in her creative and up-scale marketing skills. 

     Buying: Bernadette was persistent in finding us the right home as opposed to pushing a sale. She listened carefully to all of our requirements and worked within those parameters. She researched every potential property and was willing to go “the extra mile” to assist us in any way possible. 

     Selling: She presented us with a thoughtful marketing plan based on her excellent understanding of the North Shore housing market. She really listened to all of our concerns and ensured that we were truly satisfied. Bernadette did a fabulous job of marketing our home. With her excellent attention to detail we were comfortable that she was presenting it to its finest advantage. Bernadette provided: excellent advice on staging, the use of professional photography to highlight our home’s special features, high profile advertising, and so much more.  We have recommended Bernadette to a number of our friends.

    I am impressed with Bernadette’s knowledgeable and professional style. We were purchasing from out of the province, which presented a few logistical issues.  Bernadette was the perfect liaison between both family members, bankers, lawyers and inspectors from both provinces.  I appreciate her attention to details and her prompt services.  Her follow-up personal touches after the purchase were also appreciated.
