FANTASTIC!!!!!

When we first started to look at buying our second home we thought that we had planned it all out so perfectly. On about 3 or 4 occasions we created a list of homes that fit our criteria and fit roughly into our price range, and we spent all day searching for our new home. Almost predictably, the vast majority of our selections were well below our expectations. Even the homes that we had the highest hopes for proved sub-par. We met Michael while attending an open house in Kitsilano one sunny Sunday afternoon. The home he was showing also did not fit our expectations; it was far smaller than we were looking for (though the location was perfect). There, Michael offered us his services, and by the middle of the next week he had travelled all of the way into the suburbs to visit with us. He spent a couple of hours going through listings, helping us narrow down the list. The next weekend we scheduled a few hours to go and look at our first bunch of houses. At the very end of that day we had found the home that we would end up buying. You can imagine that we were nervous finding a home so quickly, but Michael made us feel comfortable in our decision, despite only having worked with him briefly to this point. Michael listened to our concerns, our wants, and our ideas, then gave us his expertise and thoughts. With his help our search was quick, and fruitful, we couldn’t have asked for anything more. During the negotiation process he was able to get us a significant reduction off the listing price, and also arranged for some deviations once the home inspection was completed. All in all, we found Michael to be supremely professional, very patient and thoughtful, and we would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase a home.

Michael's customer service skills are excellent. He's extremely knowledgeable, patient and he truly looks out for his client's best interests. When I was looking for a condo Michael drove me all over the Lower Mainland: North Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster until we found just the right place for me. When we did find it one morning, Michael had a deal in place that same day! He wanted to be sure I purchased the condo at a fair price and he ensured that no one else beat us to the punch. Through the entire process including dealing with all the paperwork Michael was a true professional and I just want to add that he's got a big heart. I had some other distractions going on wile we were looking for a condo but he was always very understanding and always put me first. If you're looking for a realtor that will take care of you 100% you can't go wrong with Michael Gibson.

We had the pleasure of working with Michael for the purchase of our townhouse and it is our pleasure to highly recommend him as a realtor for anyone considering purchasing or selling real estate. Michael is the consummate professional in his field. We had interviewed numerous realtors before meeting Michael by chance at an open house on the West Side of Vancouver. Immediately, we were taken back by the honesty in his approach and we were impressed by his assessment of the market conditions at the time. We also found his no pressure demeanor a welcomed change from the numerous other realtors we had met with. At the time, we were not quite in a position to purchase, and Michael respected this. A few months later when we were ready to purchase, we reached out to Michael. Over the next year and a half Michael was very patient with us, to the point where we are certain most realtors would have long given up. Our purchase took much longer than we had originally anticipated due to us significantly changing our search parameters numerous times. In addition, a personal situation forced us to suspend our purchase for almost a year. Throughout all of this time, Michael remained extremely patient and very understanding. We cannot even imagine how many homes he must have shown us in total; probably close to 100 over the course of the year and a half search, if not more. Throughout the process, we found Michael to be very detail orientated and thorough, something I appreciated as a Professional Engineer. He was very methodical in his approach, honest and always acted with the utmost of integrity and ethics. It wasn't just about getting a sale; Michael genuinely cared and wanted to see us happy with our purchase. To make a long story short, we ended up purchasing a home on the West Side. It exactly matches all of the numerous parameters we had set forth. Michael was also tremendous in securing us a good price; his negotiating and inter-personal skills are outstanding. We now consider Michael a friend and would recommend his services to anyone looking for a realtor.

My experience with Michael was very, very good. He is so nice and he cares about you as a friend as well as a client. His reassurance with all the transactions was amazing. He impressed us so much that my brother is going to hire him to help them sell and buy their next home. He is a hard worker and listens to what it is that you need to enjoy the experience. Michael, we will recommend you anytime. Thank you.

和迈克合作是如此愉快和高效。我至今还不能想象,只用了一个多星期我们就买到了非常满意的地段和房子,而我介绍给他的中国朋友也只用了很短的时间就买到了性价比极高的独立屋。 “掌握时机就是胜利的关键”这是迈克的理念,这一高效工作方式充分地体现在他替我们买屋的一系列交易环节中。尤其是他每天密集地带我们看房和关键时候速下决断递报价的时候,更突出了他非凡的工作效率。同时,迈克又是很谨慎的人,他会很耐心地帮我们明确需求、选择贷款、挑选地段。从背景调查、精确的市场分析到准备合同条款,他都不放过对我们不利的任何细枝末节,我们对此留下了非常深刻的印象。更出色的是,迈克是个很棒的谈判高手,他拥有非凡的与人沟通的技巧,即使是在讨价还价的时候,他也能使周围的人都感到亲切。他为我们争取到的价格远远低于我们的预期。 迈克不但经验丰富,对温哥华了如指掌,是一个洞察一切先机的非常精明的经纪,同时他又是非常诚恳、可靠的朋友。他甚至为我们去市政府做前期调查,争取权利,帮我们与卖家沟通,使得我们日后各项事宜都能安排得很顺利。 迈克谢谢你为我们所做的一切。我会介绍更多的朋友给你,因为我知道你会很好地照顾他们

Dealing with Michael has been an extreme pleasure and a very efficient cooperation. I still can not imagine that we only took a week to get a very satisfied location and a great house. My friend from China only had a very short time, but he helped her to buy an extremely high cost-effective detached house within her desired neighborhood. . \"Timing is the key to victory,\" This is Mike\'s philosophy. The efficient work that he showed us in all parts of the deals fully reflected this, especially in the intensive house viewing and critical offer presenting part. Meanwhile he is very cautious when he helped us identifying our needs, providing more choices of mortgage and setting locations goal. We are very impressed by the detailed background checking, the precise market analysis and the detailed subjects in contract he prepared for us. Most of all, He is such a brilliant negotiator. He got very sophisticate inter-personal skills that make everybody around him feels comfortable even when barging. The price he got for us is far exceeded our expectations. Michael, not only experienced, well aware of Vancouver, is a very shrewd insight into all the opportunities in the market. He is also a very sincere and reliable friend. He even went to city hall for preliminary investigation before we sign the contract, negotiate for our rights. After he communicated with the sellers, we found everything went so smoothly in our further contact with them. Thank you Michael for all that you have done. I have referred two friends and will gladly refer more. Because I know you will take good care of them. Faye Liu
