EXPERT OPINIONS

Nobody knows more about the experience of working with Resident Experts than the people who already have.

Scott came highly recommended when we were looking for a realtor to help us purchase our first home. He exceeded our expectation every step of the way. He is communicative, knowledgeable and detailed. We felt that we could trust him to look out for our best interests and that made the process of buying a home a lot less intimidating and more fun! We would without reservation recommend Scott!

I really hit the real estate jackpot when I met the outstanding Resident Experts team.  I was looking for four essential attributes in a realtor before I listed my condo in False Creek: Expertise, Service, Communication and Trust.   Scott, Amanda and Carla are a dedicated and professional team who worked tirelessly and seamlessly to EXCEED my expectations in all these areas.  Although they each embody the four essential attributes, the bonus of hiring a team is that they each bring areas of particular expertise that strengthen the team as a whole.
They are all extremely knowledgeable about the historical and current Vancouver housing and strata market, and guided me patiently through the process of selling my leasehold condo. They set up an excellent Virtual Tour and fantastic brochure with lots of web exposure, held lots of Open Houses with timely feedback, kept me continually updated on the comparables, and provided excellent advice through numerous offers until they found just the right one!  Their communications are second to none.  They are all rapid responders and I felt supported every step of the way.
Scott, Amanda and Carla take pride in their common values as team for good reason. I always knew they had my back and that I could TRUST them to give me the very best possible advice.  It was a pleasure to work with such dedicated professionals who exemplified kindness, generosity, integrity and ethical commitment in all of their dealings.  I would HIGHLY recommend anyone who is looking for a realtor to triple your odds of success by working with Resident Experts.  They’re simply the best!

Although her reputation was excellent, Amanda exceeded our expectations when we worked with her on two real estate transactions. She was knowledgeable and gave clear instructions on every step of the process. She was available and always ready to listen to concerns and answer questions, strong and confident but never overbearing. She is passionate about achieving the best for her clients and worked very hard to reach a positive outcome. Amanda is a superb negotiator and we were very grateful that we had her expertise throughout the process.

— Gord and Lydele

The Resident Experts were an absolute pleasure to work with. We were incredibly impressed with them each step of the way.The communication from start to finish never left us with questions and we felt well informed throughout the entire process. Their knowledge and expertise of the real estate market assured us our property was in great hands.We valued their honest approach and integrity .Loved the fact that 10 percent of their commission is given to charity. We would recommend this team of professionals to family and friends without hesitation.

— Grant and Cheryl

Scott & Amanda worked tirelessly to assist us in purchasing a property in 2015.  Scott was eternally patient in supporting us as a couple when my husband & I had different visions & budgets.  His attention to detail was the key to getting us our dream home during a highly competitive time in the market.  Amanda complimented his strengths with her respectfully assertive nature which provided much-needed direction for us.  The Regamble team bring integrity & honesty to the challenging Vancouver market.  Thank you both for your commitment to our family & our home.

As the markets predicted… The Bank of Canada increased by 0.25% ⬆️ this morning. For those applying for a new mortgage or with adjustable mortgage payments, they will see an increase of roughly $15/$100,000. For those selecting a variable rate mortgage (not many are), this impacts borrowing power by about $3,000/$100,000.
 
“The Bank of Canada’s new outlook predicts that year-over-year increases in the consumer price index will average 5.4 per cent over the first quarter and drop to 2.6 per cent by the end of 2023.
 
The updated inflation forecast is significant because it suggests price increases will be back in the central bank’s comfort zone of one per cent to three per cent before the year is over. The forecast puts inflation back at the two per cent – the midpoint of that comfort zone – sometime in 2024.”
 
The next rate announcement will be on March 8, 2023.
