Testimonial for Vancouver Realtor Maggie Chandler

TulipsThree years ago I was contacted by an offshore investor couple, wishing to purchase a Heritage style condo in Yaletown. This spring they notified me that they were ready to buy, so I sent them a list of suggestions, narrowed it down to a couple and viewed the condos for them and took a video of the condo and the street. They selected one and made an offer which was accepted, then they came to town to view the condo and do a building inspection.

Another Happy Client who kindly wrote a testimonial

We just purchased a converted heritage condo in Yaletown, and was very happy with Maggie’s service! Her professionalism and prompt responses was great, especially since we’re out of the country and was not familiar with the process in Vancouver. We would definitely recommend her and hope to use her again in the future! Read more
