Buying a home in Vancouver is a life-altering decision. Which is why it’s important that before you start your journey you understand all of the steps that will take you from looking to picking up the keys to your new home.  Whether it’s a first home, an investment property or a vacation home, Resident Experts will work with you to determine and achieve your home buying goals.

Following a consultation with an expert who will ask questions that will shape the service to follow, we will show you properties that best match your criteria. We will always work to find you the best value within your time frame while providing the most convenience for you as possible.

We maintain an active list of available homes that is constantly updated and have access to listings world wide through Engel & Völkers’ global network.

We also maintain relationships with trusted partners to provide the essential services you’ll require throughout the purchasing process, including finance, insurance, inspections and legal representation.

With us as your Resident Experts, we’ll walk you through each of these steps so you feel as confident as possible.

1. Secure Financing

Start by evaluating your financial situation and budget. You’ll want to get  pre-approval from your lender.

2. Define Your Goals, Needs and Budget

Get clear on your goals for your home, your needs in terms of amenities, location and other key factors, and what type of budget you have to work with.

3. Conduct Your Home Search

Then we’ll start looking for the right home for you.

4. Submit Your Offer

Once you find a property you love, we’ll make an offer to purchase. This may be subject to financing, home inspection or approval of documents.

5. Negotiate Successfully

The offer will then be negotiated with the seller either accepting, countering or declining your offer.

6. Close the Deal

This typically takes 5 to 7 business days, if subjects in the contract are not met, the sale will be void. As subjects are met and approved, the buyer must remove them and then they will pay the deposit set out in the contract.

Testimonials

  • I just wanted to say thank you for all the help you provided us in finding a home. You definitely went above and beyond what I would expect from a realtor. Thanks for being patient and giving us the time to find the right place, as well as providing your insight and information when we didn’t quite know what to do. I would have no problem making a strong recommendation for someone to work with you if anyone else I know decides to try looking for a place in the future.

  • As a first time home buyer, I wasn’t sure what to expect. Scott’s guidance and support proved to be invaluable. He took the time to get to know me and to understand what I was looking for in a home. He made sure I was comfortable with each step of the process, and ultimately my final decision. Scott’s objectivity, tenacity, knowledge and overall approach to the home buying process make him someone you want to have in your corner.

    Peter
  • 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!

    Luna & Ayo
  • Scott made buying our first home so much easier than it could have been. He was endlessly patient with our off-the-wall questions and evolving sense of what we wanted. He was always professional, personable and quick to respond. He worked very hard to help us find the right home for us, and kept helping even after the sale completed. We recommend Scott very highly.

    Catherine and Robin
  • Scott is an eager, knowledgable and professional realtor to work with. We always felt like he was on our team, as he listened well to our needs/desires and met us in our excitement. We were confident in his ability to find us what we looking for when we decided to work with him and even so he exceeded our expectations and delivered quicker than anticipated. Scott is a clear communicator, always prompt in our meetings and a strong voice whether buying or selling. We highly recommend Scott and will choose him and his team every time.

    Christy and Steve
  • Scott helped our family to find and then purchase a suitable home for our three daughters. Their plan is to live in the house, and then to redevelop, to create three separate homes ( two duplex units and an infill home.) He was professional, timely, supportive and always cheerfully provided the information and advice we needed to make the deal happen!

    David
  • Scott is a consummate real estate professional in Vancouver. I have referred two friends to him and both have been extremely pleased with his services - one for buying a loft on Commercial drive and one for selling a condo in Kits. I will continue to refer Scott to friends/family

    Ryan L
  • Scott helped my wife and I make a sale that, frankly, we didn't think was possible. We had a complex situation with our strata and a number of other factors that we couldn't see past, but through his connections and expertise he helped us stick-handle through the complexity and it resulted in a very successful sale. He is very accessible and skilled and we highly recommend him.

    David and Lindsay
  • Selling our place was stressful but Scott helped us through every step with ease! I was so impressed to see how much research he did and how hard he worked for us. I will be forever grateful for his help! Thanks, Chris and Shereen

    Chris and Shereen
  • We had the difficult task of a property search from out of province.  With Scott’s expert and professional support and guidance we had a relatively low stress search that was comprehensive yet focused.  He is thorough, informed, timely, always responsive and obviously well regarded in his community.  During our long telephone conversations, he took the time to listen, understand and connect.  He gave us the confidence to make and complete our selection entirely remotely and when we finally made our choice he made the deal happen.
