Even today honest and great professionals do exist

I really really have to write this post as this makes me believe that even today honest and great professionals do exist in this world. If anyone ever has to deal with any realtor TEAM DAVE VALLEE is the team to deal with. Dave and Kellie Vallee helped me with buying and selling last year and they were nothing but amazing and today when I needed their help for an issue not related to business, they are so so helpful that makes my heart filled with joy that unlike any realtor in the past, they always stand by with their clients even from long time ago. I am not an easy person to get impressed.  A. Merchant

“Just a note to let you know how much I appreciated your expertise during the sale of my home. You and your team were very supportive throughout the whole process. You were able to transmit advice and information that I needed in a manner that I was able to understand and use. Selling my home was not always a happy thing to do but you made it much easier. Many thanks to you and your team for your knowledge, your communication and your warm support.”

Patricia Pratt sold her long time New Westminster home

“I would like to say a BIG thank you for the wonderful assistance you provided selling our home. After 2 other unsuccessful realtors, it took only 3 days for you to sell our home. We do not have words to express our gratitude for your professionalism, friendliness and above all you drove at 9:00 pm one night to bring an offer to our new home in White Rock and returned back again the next day to complete the sale. The portrait you gave us from our home is priceless. We will cherish it forever. Please feel free, and do not hesitate, to give our phone number as a reference. YOU ARE THE VERY BEST!”

Benito and Sara Bulich sold their home in Sapperton area of New Westminster

"Michael and I would like to take this opportunity to tell you how much we enjoyed working with you on the sale of our house. I know we placed some pressure on you to sell our house as quickly as possible and you were very responsive and attentive to our requests. However, the thing that stands out most in our minds that made it such a pleasure to work with you was your genuine interest and enthusiasm for our house. The fact that our house is 109 years old meant the market of potential buyers was reduced. You never made us feel that we weren't going to find the right buyer, and your confidence in our home or it's price never waivered"

M. & E. Komusi

Letter to Sales Manager: "We just wanted to let you know for the record what a fine job Dave Vallee did for us. He worked diligently through the month of June to find us exactly what we were looking for within our price range. Dave is a sensitive and co-operative individual as well as being competent and unassuming. He dealt with both the purchaser of our home and the sellers of our new home in a respectful and competent manner. He has a good knowledge of the human condition and is correspondingly patient. We have recommended him to others already and will continue to do so"

"Just wanted to say thank you for the lovely picnic basket you brought us as well as, and more importantly, the terrific service you and your team provided in the sale of my condo. Friends could not believe it sold so quickly which was due to your advertising and sensible pricing. I've already passed on your card to friends & neighbours. Thank you once again"

"Gordon and I wanted to say thank you for all the kind things you and your team did to help us purchase a condo and get settled in New Westminster. We also appreciated your house warming gift filled with so many tasty treats! Even our council was impressed that you took the time to send that letter asking them to investigate the outside door frames. I'm sure you must be the most sought after real estate agent in New Westminster!  We are singing your praises to all our friends."

G. & L. Hamilton

Letter to Sales Manager: "My wife and I have just finished selling one of our properties through Dave Vallee and I must say that we are extremely pleased and impressed with his services and professional approach. We were impressed from our very first interview with him and it continued throughout the process. Dave was very honest with us, he did not make promises that he could not keep, he was very confident and instilled this confidence in both of us. Throughout this process, which could be very unnerving for beginners, Dave made us feel that he had our best interest at heart and that he was not in this process to make a quick buck at our expense. Having gone through this with other realtors, we quickly realized that Dave's primary interest was our best interest and for this we are grateful. Throughout the negotiations Dave knew our position, respected it, gave us sound advice and did not use it against us to make a quick sale. RE/MAX should be very proud to have someone like Dave Vallee working for them because he does represent your motto and really is "ABOVE THE CROWD". We would certainly not hesitate to recommend him to our family, friends and relatives. Thank you, Dave, for your hard work, efforts and making this a pleasurable experience for us."

A. & R. Lacroix

"Thank you for the professional way in which you handled the sale of our home. Your market analysis was on target and we were most pleased with the results achieved with the sale of our property. Your communication was excellent throughout the listing and we would highly recommend you for your excellent service."

S. Ogilvie

"If you are looking for a good reason to work with a realtor, it is good to learn from other's experiences. My wife and myself have done three real estate deals and Dave Vallee has been our realtor on each negotiation. I can speak from my experience that Dave is a hard working, honest, forthright and most importantly to me, ethical business person. On each occasion that we have had to work with Dave, he proved himself extremely knowledgable about the New Westminster market and accurate in his assessment of the market. His skills in working with people are clear when you meet Dave. He is warm and sensitive even in the difficult moments. I would whole heartedly recommend Dave if you need a realtor. These are a few reasons why Dave has been "Realtor of the Year" in New Westminster year after year after year.

Dave Norton

As you can imagine it helps bring closure for both of us. I'm sure most sales have an emotional component as this one certainly did for us. Thanks for your help and for your understanding."

".....you take your mission statement seriously. You are available, consistent and genuine. In particular I am awed by your exceptional ability in melding people skills with what is an intense, fickle, profit sensitive area of the economy. You make it seem easy.

We will gladly pass your name along to friends requiring assistance with their Real Estate needs."

Richard & Cynthia Wong

"A note of thanks. When we decided to move, you took charge of our Real Estate dealings with the assured confidence of a professional. You showed us there is much more to Real Estate than planting a "For Sale" sign in the yard. The variety of "tools" in your sales kit is comprehensive. You demonstrated a knowledge of how and when to use them. Your market evaluation of our house was fair and honest. Obviously, the purchaser thought likewise. In fact, you single-handedly made the transaction possible for both parties. Dave, you took our wishes and made them realty."

Leigh & Bunny McKay

"Just a short note to let you know we are pleased with you selling our house. Although it took a little time to secure some interest, the burst at the end was reassuring. Thank you for your persistence. I appreciate the way in which you kept in regular touch with us and your knowledge of what was going on in the surrounding area. Should we require a realtor in the area again, be assured we will call on you first. If you recall, it was your initial interest in our place that encouraged us to use you the first time."

Dr. & Mrs. Smith

"Now we know why you were designated "Salesman of the Year" for your company. From the moment you were asked to come to our home to list our condo for sale, we were most impressed with the manner in which you handled yourself. My wife and I were very impressed with your presentation, including analysis of the listing price, anticipated selling price and the length of time you expected to find a buyer. Obviously, while you could not make a commitment in this matter, your projections were right on target. A truly remarkable achievement! More importantly, we found that your ethical standards were beyond reproach. Therefore, we thank you most sincerely for the wonderful help which you gave us and for a very successful and satisfactory sale of our property.

Mr. & Mrs. S. Dart

"Congratulations on the sale of my property located at 814 Williams Street, New Westminster. Your hard work paid off. It was not easy deciding to list my property with another realtor, but as you know it is not a good idea to list your own property (E&O insurance etc.). I was impressed with your unwavering professionalism on both the sale of my lot and my home. I look forward to doing business with you in the future."

Kevin Stanfield, Re/Max Realtor

"We both want to thank you for all your help in finding our first home for us. Thanks for your time and effort."

Patrick & Christine Clark

“Thank you for your outstanding service that you provided. When I listed my New Westminster condo with you in August, I certainly had no expectation of it selling any time in the near future. I should have known better because you had it sold very quickly. Even when an offer was pending, you worked to continue showings on the property in order to get the best offer. Your service did not stop there. With wedding plans set for a week after the closing sale of my condo, we needed to find a new home quickly. And of course we did, and with all the characteristics we were looking for. You and your team promptly and professionally returned our calls and kept us informed continuously. Many thanks for you’re your help. I will be pleased to recommend your excellent service to my closet associates and friends.”

Coreen Sol

“Lizett and I are writing to offer you our many, many thanks for the time you spent with us in our search for a new home. We are very grateful that we were able to link up with you in the beginning. As first time buyers, you were patient with us, instructive, informative, and also genuine in your professionalism to represent our interests. For that we thank you very, very much! We would not hesitate in the least in giving you a call for assistance with our next home purchase. Nor will we have any problem in recommending others to you. We wish you well, Dave, and success in helping others who are in need of your services, for you truly have a natural gift and talent for accommodating and supporting the needs and desires of home buyers.”

Jay & Lizett Lees

“Just a short note to say thanks for handling the recent sale for my house. I was very pleased with how quickly it sold and very satisfied with the selling price. Your professional approach to every detail was reassuring.”

Dorothy and Jason Smith

“People tell me that selling a home can be stressful at the best of times. You made it all seem so easy. This is the 2nd time we have used your services and we would, and do, recommend you to anyone buying or selling a home. Thank you for being so professional and so easy to talk to. You seem to go above and beyond what we could expect from any realtor or friend.”

Peter and Marilyn Snelgrove

“Thank you for all your time helping us find our home. We are enjoying it and are grateful for your help. We have your spare card and we’ll pass it along to anyone who may need you. I think that’s a good way for us to show our appreciation."

Julie Dalkin and Marc Blanchet

“We were very happy with the business like way you handled the sale of our home and the energy you put into it. It was expedited quickly and we were surprised and very pleased with the results. We liked the different ways you used to promote the home and we also liked the personal way you dealt with us. We would highly recommend you to any of our family and friends. "

Mr. and Mrs Jacobson

We were very happy with your service. You were very efficient and proficient. We would recommend you any time to anyone needing the services of a good realtor.”

Gunter and Vera Masch

Thank you for all you have done for us. I would highly recommend you to our friends who might need a realtor.

Robert & Elizabeth Williamson

Thank you for helping to resolve a problem we encountered when we purchased our first home from one of your clients. One thing all of us realize is that life is not always perfect, especially when you are dealing with older houses. So, from time to time things are bound to go wrong, the question is how do we approach the problem when it does. I think what separates the above average sales representatives from the mediocre is how they handle problems, and I feel that you passed the test with flying colours.

Bob Pilkey

Thank you for your help during these past two months. Although this was not a long period, we have been through so many things together and your professionalism deeply impressed us. We will definitely recommend you to our friends. And we wish you a prosperous year in your business.  Again, thank you.

YAN ZHAO

Thank you Dave. We were pleased with your team expertise, especially Kellie's professionalism and patience. Thanks a lot.

 SINISA AND TANYA ELEZ

Thank you for helping us to sell our home which we had purchased in 1985 and have been living in for 26 years. This is the first time we have been invovlved in the sale of a house and therefore, the thoughful and considerate way in which you handled all aspects of the sale made the process very smooth and comfortable for us and we appreciated this very much. We think the quality of service we received from you was outstanding. The viewings, the open house, the inspections, the offers were all handled very professionally. We felt that you understood our goals and were very effective in helping us to achieve these goals. We highly recommend you to the people we know and to anyone who needs to sell their house.

Many thanks for all your efforts regarding the sale of our home! Everyone on the team was always a pleasure to deal with. Despite the challenges presented by the real estate market and the unique aspects of our house, you were finally able to put up the "SOLD" sign. Thanks again for everything! We wish all of you the very best for the future! Sincerely,

BARBARA AND JIM WALTER
