The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to show you their correspondence. Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my down-to-earth and honest approach has earned me many friends - I think that's fantastic!
Jerome & Kathleen
We would like to thank you so much for the amazing work you did for us. We really appreciated your professionalism, your intensive knowledge about the real estate market in the Lower Mainland and your accuracy when it came to pointing out things we overlooked while visiting houses. Buying a house can be an emotional process and you always found the right words to help us put things into perspective by providing us with the right information to ultimately make the right decision for our family. We have been living in our new home for almost 6 months now and we really cannot imagine living anywhere else.
Since the first time we met you, you made a very good first impression and you never let us down. Your availability and your reliability are second to none and we know for a fact that we would not have been able to get our house in this competitive market if you did not have those qualities.
We really felt that you always had our best interests at heart and never tried to push us into something we were not sure about. On the same token we admire your patience to deal with picky buyers like us:)
It was nice to work with a trustworthy, personable and, last but not least, friendly agent as you and we will highly recommend you to any of our family members and friends looking to buy or sell a property.

A truly wonderful and memorable experience! Thank you Adrian! I have a lot of praise for the exceptional, professional, courteous and patient service that you provided to us during this year. We are so very happy to be in our "home sweet home" now. I think that you went above and beyond in helping and supporting us with the selling of our homes and the purchasing of our new home. In particular, you did very well, with your reassuring words, in keeping myself calm during those moments of stress. Thank you, again, and be assured that we'll recommend you to anyone we know that needs a realtor!
With very best regards,
Richard & Ruth

As young first time homebuyers, we had a lot of questions and met a lot of people who didn’t take us seriously. Adrian treated us with respect. He was professional and answered all our questions arming us with the knowledge we needed to be confident in our purchase. His humour kept us smiling and his patience paid off as we visited over a dozen homes and finally found our home a year and a half later.
We would recommend Adrian in a heartbeat. His guidance and knowledge of real estate was extremely valuable in helping us make a positive decision that was right for us.
I would like to say thanks to Adrian Vekic, the most patient and professional Real Estate agent that I have met. Believe me, I have met and dealt with quite a few agents as I have moved a lot over the years. I have bought and sold and bought again with Adrian and would only go with him. He takes time to explain things, he has patients beyond belief, very knowledgeable and understanding, he gets back to you when you call him, he is organized, very trustworthy and so honest, most of all he gets the job done. I can't say enough good things about him. I will recommend him to my family and to anyone out there who is looking for a great Agent. Thanks again Adrian.
Jack & Linda B.
Normally, I wouldn't anticipate expressing written appreciation for services provided, but I am motivated to do so in this instance.
Linda and I would like others to know how impressed we were with your professional, yet affable manner, your unwavering level of integrity during the process, your strong interest in listening to and understanding our needs, your ease of accessibility and your solid, strategic advise during the negotiation phase of our sale. Not only did you achieve a sale within a week of listing, but the specific advice you provided helped us achieve a price that exceeded our initial expectations.
As this was an estate sale of Linda's parents' property, it was a stressful time for her. Your sensitivity to this fact and the respectfuland compassionate way that you provided your services was very much appreciated, as was your quick willingness to handle the conveyance of the sale documents with the other executrix in Calgary.
Adrian, you provided us with exceptional service and it was a real pleasure to get to know you during our short time together. You are a model representative to your profession and we will not hesitate a moment to call on you again should we need real estate services in the future. We will also be recommending you to our family members, friends and neighbours when the occasion arises.
To Whom It May Concern,
I recently had the pleasure of doing business with Adrian Vekic. As a former customer service representative and a self-professed cynic when it comes to sales people of any kind, I believe that I am what one would term a "hard-sell"...
Adrian came highly recommended by a friend of mine who had just sold her home. She didn't need to convince me to at least interview Adrian for the job. I had witnessed the delicate nature of her sale, and knew that he had done an excellent job in an emotionally charged situation.
Adrian wasn't the only realtor I interviewed, however, he did call me 3 weeks later to ask how my school had gone. (To this day, I have not heard a word from the other realtor who claimed to be "above the crowd").I told him that I was leaving for Vernon in 2 days to try to buy a new place, and that he might get a panicked call from me to list my place. He reassured me that, if it was necessary, I could "list by fax". It was necessary! I called Adrian from Vernon on Wednesday night. By Thursday my place was listed. By Saturday morning it was on the MLS website. Eight days later it was SOLD!
Adrian advised me early on that he believed in "customer service." That meant... being present at both showings and at the open house that took place within the week. That meant... I had peace of mind as I left my home for strangers to view. That meant ... buyers questions / concerns were answered / dispelled immediately! That meant... a quick sale for a very happy seller! If you are a condo owner, check out Pococondo.com...chances are you will want Adrian to sell your place based solely on that site. "Differentiated Service" is what Adrian personifies. Attention to detail...Making sure that the lighting was perfect for photos. Diligent...when my property management company was slow to produce documents - he made sure to prod them. Friendly two-way communication... Adrian answered my questions clearly and concisely. He reassured me, without sugar-coating what was happening with my deal. He led me with respect and sometimes humour thru the maze of selling a home in a very short time period. Adrian Vekic exceeded all of my expectations, and I would recommend him in a heartbeat! As a matter of fact, I have already referred my Mom to him.

We are very pleased to let you know how appreciative we are for your services as our Realtor. Our new home is everything that we wanted and it was your help that made our dreams come true. Achieving our dream was made possible with the successful sale of our town home. Your marketing and pricing strategy worked flawlessly. Not only were you able to sell our home quickly with very little inconvenience to us, you were also able to achieve the highest sale price in our complex! Overall we were very pleased with your professional approach to our wants and needs. We really found your attention to detail, especially in contract language helpful as it allowed us to better understand both the selling and buying process. The flexibility you exhibited could not go unmentioned. The fact that you even came to our kids sporting activities to share information or to get documents signed made us feel that you truly cared about making things simple and hassle free for the both of us. On several occasions we commented to one another how relaxed and confident you made us feel. Your insight and sensitivity to our needs could not have been better. We know that if in the future we need the services of a Realtor you will be Our Realtor.
Thank you ever so much.

Dear Ms. Toth,
We wanted to write to you about one of your agents. My husband and I give the highest accolades to Adrian Vekic, our realtor, for his professionalism and personal interest in our recent home buying experience. From the outset when we first met Adrian he was extremely attentive to our needs. He was patient and understanding of our interests, and especially our much loved little dog Teddy, as we toured various properties. He always acted in a very courteous and professional manner.
As we narrowed our search and found the property we wanted to purchase Adrian's attention to detail provided to be invaluable. He provided extensive information on the property under consideration, and assisted us with obtaining difficult to locate, but necessary documentation required for securing our loan.
In closing, we cannot say enough about Adrian's efforts during the final stages in purchasing our property. He showed integrity, thoughtfulness and knowledge of his profession during his service to us. We feel very fortunate to have had Adrian as our Realtor during the past few months, and enjoyed the time we spent with him. We highly recommend Adrian to any prospective home buyer/seller.
Alan & Hellen T.
Helen and I wish to thank you very much for the exceptionally good help you gave us in the recent sale of our condominium - we truly appreciate it.
My employment during my working days was for a major bank for some forty-one years and we had many moves over that time and thus have been exposed to many Realtors. I cannot criticize any of them, however I could not let the opportunity of comparing your guidance in this move to those of the past go unnoticed.
My position in the Bank was at the management level, and I was in charge of a branch with a staff complement of eighty-six employess. One of the most delicate and onerous duties that I had was the annual evaluation of the quality of an employee's ability, as it had a direct influence on their advancement and remuneration. The report was a valued document for both management and employee and the comments had to be factual and were reviewed carefully in a joint discussion before filing in the employee record.
I tell you this to enable you to understand the comparison of our feelings with your conduct in our sale to that of others in your line of work. The report cards I refer to above were rated in the usual scale of fair - good - etc. to the maximum of "excellent". In my forty-one years of service with my employer I have only seen one "excellent" rating and I had the privilege of giving that rating to an employee who eventually rose to a very high office in the executive level of my employer.
Exceptional service impresses us, and I have never, until now, had the privilege of giving another "excellent" rating to anyone else in their conduct of their employment. I now must do that with you - all aspects of our deal was excellent. We appreciated all the advise you gave - your abiliy to listen to our concerns so carefully - your explanations of the intricacies of the deal - the prompt notifications of all progress in negotiations - the sincere interest and frequency of "open houses" - the consideration given to the regulations of our condominium council - being on time when interviews were arranged - and the neat paper work - and in general all aspects of the sale.
Therefore in the report card from us on you that we will give to anyone - will be one where the box maked "excellent" will be ticked off to show our high regard for your professionalism in all respects. Thank you very much for all you have done for us.
Alan & Hellen T.
I wanted to once again thank you for the outstanding services which you provided in the sale of my home.
For the record, I am not one who is easily impressed, however I have to admit that your professionalism, commitment, and genuine concern for my best interests was head and shoulders above anything that I have experienced previously.
What I truly appreciated was the fact that I dealt with you alone from the start through to the completion of the sale. It was not a case of meeting one realtor and then being handed-off to an assistant as so often happens these days. I strongly believe that it was your efforts, your expertise, and your hands-on approach, which resulted in the timely sale and favourable price achieved.
As you know, this was not the first property that I have sold, nor will it be the last. What I can say with certainty is that it will be you that I will be calling when that time comes.
Pradeep & Anjila P.
Anjila and I wish to sincerely thank you for all of your efforts towards helping us to find our new home.
Not only were you able to find us the perfect home, the effort and expertise you put forth in negotiating the best possible price on our behalf was truly appreciated.
The fact that you were able to put us in touch with a Mortgage Broker who was able to secure a more favourable interest rate than the bank we had been dealing with for many years will result in further savings to us.
Your genuine concern for our well being combined with your pleasant and caring manner turned what would have otherwise been a stressful time into an enjoyable experience for both of us.
We will certainly recommend your services to anyone we know to be buying or selling a home.
Thank you again.
Pradeep & Anjila P.
Garry & Janet S.
We would like to thank you for all the work you put in to find our new home. The service you provided was exemplary - always efficient, knowledgeable and professional. We felt you went above your call and duty to find us a great home which we are delighted with.
As new immigrants to Canada who had no knowledge of how the local housing market works, we really appreciated your patience, expertise and advice. Without a good realtor like yourself, we could have easily made an expensive mistake. We will recommend you without hesitation to others who may be looking to buy or sell a home in this area.
Garry & Janet S.
Thank you so much for your help! I really value that you made all of us.....especially my parents, feel treated as special. Your patience with us was endless!
Thank you again!
