My wife and I would like to compliment you on your agent Lisa Chandler. Lisa just recently sold our apartment home in Hampton Place at UBC. What distinguished Lisa was her analysis of the value of our apartment and her detailed knowledge of real estate in the UBC area and the west side. Lisa fully explained to us why her listing price was realistic although it was significantly higher than we had considered.
Lisa held numerous open houses both during weekday evenings as well as the weekends, and within two weeks we started to receive offers and after five weeks or unit had sold. We were able to receive close to the asking price which we are very happy with as the market was becoming more difficult for sellers at that time.
Throughout the negotiation process, Lisa conducted herself very professionally and we knew we were in good hands. She worked diligently for us to make the sale, even while attending a course in San Francisco, and deserves to earn her commission. We would have no hesitation in recommending Lisa Chandler.

I would like to write this letter to acknowledge the help Lisa Chandler gave my husband and I last summer.
When we contacted Lisa with regard to selling our house she gave us several information booklets relating to selling our house and moving, what to look for and many other extremely helpful pieces of information. These were invaluable to us.
She came to the house and spent many hours advising and helping us make the big decision to sell. Once the decision was made she was always available for the many questions we had and always had a very professional manner. Nothing was too much trouble for her.
Once our house sold she spent many hours taking us around and showing us properties within our previously agreed upon parameters. Again, this was done in a very professional manner. Once we found a house and moved in, if I had any questions I knew I could call Lisa and not feel I was bothering her. Her after-sales help was exemplary and she never made us feel that her contract with us had expired and she either answered our questions or directed us to the appropriate resource person.
I would have no hesitation in recommending Lisa to any of my friends should they decide to move. This was by far the best real estate service we have received.
Thank you, from a very satisfied customer!
~ Yours truly, Mrs. N
As a lawyer practicing in the area of probate law, I act for Executors of estates. Many of these estates hold real property which must be sold after a Testator's death.
On several occasions I have recommended to Executors that they retain the services of Lisa Chandler in selling the estate property.
Ms. Chandler has done an excellent job of advising the Executors of the market and selling the properties. I have hesitation in recommending Ms. Chandler to other lawyers who practice in the same area of law.
We wish to convey to you how impressed and satisfied we have been with our Realtor, Ms. Lisa Chandler.
The purchase of our house is the culmination of a process which began before we relocated to Vancouver and has resulted in us buying a house that is perfect for us and our family. We are delighted that she was recommended to us and have no hesitation in making such a recommendation to prospective clients.
We were impressed by Ms. Chandler's knowledge of real estate, the market in the lower mainland and her many contacts, whose skills range from realty needs to home renovations. We have found these to be very useful.
Following our first meeting, Ms. Chandler continued to keep us updated by emailing properties through to the UK, so we could start to appreciate prices, styles and areas. On the two occasions that we visited Vancouver, she set aside a week to view houses, even though we were not looking to buy for a significant period of time.
Ms. Chandler listened to our ideas and showed us areas and houses which met those thoughts and then allowed us to draw our own conclusion rather than saying "that's not going to work". Once we had worked these ideas through, it made it a lot easier for us to then focus and she was able to guide us more effectively so that we found the right house.
Having recently arrived in Vancouver, the negotiation was a new process to us. We had every confidence in Ms. Chandler's negotiation skills. This was well founded as we were very impressed by her dedication and commitment to close the deal and ensure our interests were fully met.
We would strongly encourage and recommend anyone in Vancouver or relocating to Vancouver to meet with Ms. Chandler and have her act as their Realtor.
We wish to thank Ms. Chandler for her hard work and commitment in finding us a home that is perfect for our family.

I am writing to compliment you on your Agent Lisa Chandler. Lisa just recently sold our home and it was an absolute joy and pleasure to deal with her. She did her job thoroughly, quietly and in a most professional manner. She listened to our needs, gave us a fair assessment of our property and came in with offers over asking price. We could not have asked for more.
It will be our pleasure to recommend Lisa to all our friends and acquaintances as I truly believe she is the most professional and nicest realtor we have ever had the pleasure of working with. This, I might add, is not the first property we have sold or purchased.
We hope that you will acknowledge Lisa's good work.

Last July 2008, I sold my condominium suite using the professional services of Mrs. Lisa Chandler, one of the realtors working out of your office, who a mutual friend introduced me to.
At the time there were many similar listings in the area, and the market appeared to be trending down. Nevertheless, Lisa remained upbeat and proceeded to learn all about my building. She then started holding open houses on Tuesday and Thursday evening as well as on the weekends, all of which she hosted herself. There were several interested individuals who were extremely demanding and on occasion quite rude, Lisa dealt with these irritating people with great courtesy and patience. She quickly provided any documentation required by potential buyers from the strata council and/or the management company.
We had a rather slow and disappointing month, during which time the market continued to deteriorate. Lisa continued with her frequent open houses, and we did receive several offers although for $10,000 to $20,000 less than our asking price.
Then to my considerable surprise, Lisa managed to sell my suite for $25,000 more than the listing price while I was away on holidays. She then facilitated all the necessary arrangements even though I was out of town.
Having sold my suite, she remained firmly committed to seeing the process through to completion and even the buyer was very happy with her involvement. I am extremely impressed with Lisa's professionalism and hard work, which resulted in the sale of my suite.
In fact, I was so impressed, that I recommended her to another owner in my building that wished to sell her suite. Despite the fact that the market had fallen significantly, Lisa managed to sell this suite in March 2009, again for more than the asking price. The owner, who is retired, was very happy having until then received only disappointing much lower offers. She was also very grateful to me for recommending Lisa.
I still live in the building and I am still the secretary of strata council. All the individuals involved in these two sales are very happy with the outcomes, and as a member of the strata council I am certainly relieved by that.
