Testimonials

I would highly recommend Susan Keevil to represent your home buying/selling needs above ALL REALTORs® in the lower mainland!

Take my scenario for example:

  • First time home buyer
  • Extremely anxious and nervous about this life changing investment
  • Less than 2 years later? ...Second time home buyer!
  • More anxious and nervous than the first? ...Yes, it IS possible!
  • First time home seller!

... with Susan's sound experience, around the clock availability, and knowledgeable advice, all transactions went off without a hitch!

Knowing her clients as well as she does, Susan has suggested that I'll have bought and sold 10 times over in as many years... and I'll be sure to utilize her excellent service each and every time!

I moved from a small downtown apartment into a beautiful 2 bedroom and 2 bathroom condo in Shaughnessy.

During the process, Susan tirelessly showed me many condos on the West side and made sure that I was kept up to date on a daily basis. Se was always available for me. The night I bought my condo, Susan sat outside with me until 11:00pm to make sure that the transaction was complete and that things went smoothly.

She also sold my apartment downtown very quickly using her unique marketing strategies. Susan is an astute REALTOR® who uses a variety of different strategies that are beneficial to her clients whether she is selling your place or negotiating for you on a purchase. She is a dedicated REALTOR® and always makes sure that her clients are making the right decisions for them.

Susan cares more about finding the right "fit" for her clients than the actual transaction. I love my new place and I will always work with Susan in the future — she is the only REALTOR® for me.

This letter is being written to inform prospective buyers of the great work Susan Keevil did in assisting me with the purchase of my first home just about 2 years ago.

As everyone knows, buying a home can be a very stressful mission as well as a very exciting and rewarding one. Susan was a tremendous help to me in making my first purchase and, in the end, it turned out to not be all that stressful and very exciting and rewarding!

Susan used various resources in addition to her own experience to help me in all the aspects of my purchase and I would recommend her services to any prospective buyer whether you are a seasoned vet or a rookie like I was.

Finally, after a few months of buying, selling , packing and moving, we want to take this time to thank you so much Susan for being the best REALTOR® we could ever get!!! We truly appreciate your dedication, commitment and especially your high integrity during the 15 months you helped us find our new home. We tried to think of how many places we had seen with you and we can't come up with an answer, however, we know that we were really picky and fussy clients. There were a few times where we were almost shy to tell you that the place we had seen was "OK, but. .. " I distinctly remember one conversation about that with you and your response was so reassuring, so perfect. We really felt in solid hands with you. The market was so hot and decisions needed to be taken quickly and we never once felt pressure or frustration. We want to remind you of the time we were very ready to make an offer on a place and you actually talked us out of it. That was the moment when we knew that you were very special. We do not hesitate to recommend you to family, friends and colleagues. We love our new place! It is so perfect for us!
Thank you once again and we send you the very best of wishes to you and your family.

Thanks for the excellent service and advice you provided to us when our youngest son David was looking to purchase a condo in the downtown area. As parents we were very concerned about the area in which he would eventually be living. Your knowledge of virtually every residential building in the downtown area proved to be helpful when trying to determine the 'suitable' unit to purchase. Some of the condos that we thought would be good; you mentioned had issues that could be problematic. You could have just tried to make the sale but didn't.
After looking at a few places and the decision was made to put an offer on a unit in The Max 2, you helped us through the entire process. Being a new building, you recommended that we do our own deficiency inspection and give it to the building managers. The items were then taken care of by the contractor. Once the deal was completed and it was moving day you were there to ensure that the keys were turned over, and there would be no problems getting access.
It has been over 3 months since David has moved and he is very happy and comfortable in his new place. We are also very pleased with how everything turned out.
Thanks again for the excellent service and good luck in the future. I would not hesitate to provide your name to anyone looking to buy or sell property in Greater Vancouver.

As a non-resident of Canada with very limited time for travel, I found Susan to be the perfect solution for my real estate needs. She provided a turn-key solution for the sale of my corporate rental suite, so that my time required in the transaction was limited to a few hours. I found Susan and her staff to be extremely professional, fair and knowledgeable of the Vancouver market. I would highly recommend her to any buyer or seller.

Susan Keevil is a consummate professional and it has been my pleasure to call her my REALTOR®. I was first referred to Susan by a broker, after I had been treated poorly by my former REALTOR®. I came into the relationship feeling very much taken advantage of and reticent. I was assured by the broker that Susan was one of the best and that I was in good hands. I have never looked back. Susan went above and beyond the call, always putting the needs of her client (me), before her own. In one instance, I was fed up and ready to sell and Susan persuaded me to hold out for a better price if I could. I did, and was about $15 000 happier, 3 months later. She got me full list, and with very agreeable terms. Susan is very good at what she does and is able to read the market confidently. As a savvy investor herself, she walks the walk, and is keenly aware of even slight market shifts. I would recommend Susan to anyone without hesitation, and will definitely work with her again and again.

Susan Keevil is everything an American investing in Vancouver could hope for in a REALTOR®!!! Very professional, so well informed and able to give sound advice about a rapidly fluctuating housing market. And, I don't know where she gets her energy. We have multiple properties in Vancouver, and Susan recently handled the sale of our townhouse at 2 Harbour Green. We ended up with several offers, and Susan's negotiation skills really paid off. My wife and I are both lawyers and real estate agents in California, and Susan has exceeded all of our expectations.

We have no hesitation in recommending the services of Susan Keevil to act as your REALTOR®.
My family and I have recently purchased our first home and Susan made the experience very easy, comfortable and we trusted Susan would find us the home that we were looking for. Communication is imperative throughout this process and Susan was always available to answer our questions and would make us aware of properties that suit our requirements promptly. She was very thorough in ensuring that the properties for view were of good value and would suit our lifestyle.
Susan is patient, clear and concise when explaining the unknown areas of the Real Estate market to a first-time buyer. The next time we are ready to sell our home, we will be more confident as we have gained much knowledge from this experience.
We thank Susan for her hard work and dedication, it is much appreciated and we hope that in the future we will work together again. We now refer Susan to our friends and family as we know she deserves the recommendation.

Both Wilma and I would like to express our considerable appreciation for the speedy sale of our apartment at 501 499 Broughton Street in Vancouver.
Your professional and accurate handling of the sale, including all formalities, coupled with your friendliness, contributed to making this a most pleasant experience. Your help and advice in procuring the services of a Solicitor was invaluable for us, foreign clients, leading to a satisfactory conclusion for all parties.
We thank you again and wish you much success in the future.

We totally enjoyed our real estate experience with Susan Keevil and her team in the sale of our condominium in downtown Vancouver. They were very hardworking, friendly and professional. They listened to our needs, offered us advice and suggestions, kept us informed throughout and delivered everything they promised.

THANK YOU - Susan, David and Matthew. Your professionalism, acute marketing strategy and excellent customer service are #1. We highly recommend you to anyone looking for a REALTOR® and would certainly engage in your services again.

I am pleased to provide this reference letter for Susan Keevil in regards to her work for me in purchasing my home in downtown Vancouver. I sold my home in West Vancouver and had a small window in which to locate another residence. Susan was extremely knowledgeable about the Vancouver real estate market and was able to find the perfect home for me. At the time the property was not even listed for sale. Through her contacts and as a result of her familiarity with the market she was aware of the property which was ideal for me. She approached the owners and not only was she able to convince the owners to sell; she was able to negotiate a great price and the right completion date for me to move into my new home. She was also able in that time to help the Sellers find their dream home in West Vancouver.

Susan, in my opinion handled this transaction with both the Sellers and myself with the utmost integrity, professionalism and had great negotiating skills putting the transaction together to the satisfaction of both the Seller and myself. She also has an uncanny ability to know exactly what a buyer is looking for.

Susan is very professional in her dealing with both buyer and seller and her expert knowledge of the market and sound investment advice has paid off. I have just sold my townhouse and have made a very substantial profit. I would definitely have used Susan to sell my property at this time but as she has relocated to Victoria I had to work with another REALTOR®. Working with Susan was pleasant and her advice was succinct and very helpful to me in what was a trying time. I have the utmost confidence that she would be a great asset to any Company involved in real estate sales, investing and/or development.

We very rarely, if ever, write testimonials, but given Susan's professionalism, patience, enthusiasm and dedication, we have no hesitation in highly recommending Susan.
She first acted for us on a purchase of a property a few years ago, when we looked at over 40 properties before we found the right one. We were obviously concerned that she may lose interest in working with us, given that it takes a lot of time to arrange viewings. However, on the contrary, she always arranged viewings promptly and fully understood our reasons for not wanting to rush to buy a property that may not have been suitable for our needs.
When it came to selling another property later, we didn't even think about using another agent. Once again, Susan proved our judgment correct, as she was able to sell our property within a matter of days at the full asking price. More importantly, given that we are now based overseas, Susan always managed to keep us up-to-date with the sales process and took responsibility to ensure that the buyer and the lawyers on both sides had the necessary paperwork. This obviously saved us a lot of work and made selling the property much easier.
To conclude - if you're looking for a REALTOR® who actually takes the time to get to know her
clients and their particular needs, you should definitely consider working with Susan.

Purchasing a home is a challenging endeavor, and doing so in a city other than your home town is even more daunting. To further complicate the search, my husband and I had somewhat different checklists in terms of what we wanted to find. However, our experience with Susan was a great one given her patience, talent to discern our needs, and knowledge of both the Vancouver and Victoria markets. This last point is punctuated by her ability to compare the Vancouver neighbourhoods, in which we are familiar, to the unfamiliar ones in Victoria. While navigating various neighbourhoods and open houses in Victoria, she was instrumental in helping us to understand and decide what we wanted by explaining, "This area is more like the West End," or "The houses here are built in the style of Kitsilano." Further, Susan provided us with timely communication whether it be via e-mail or mobile phone, and we appreciated her honest opinion and integrity. In addition, she took the time to make phone calls on our behalf and to accompany us to City Hall to clarify some of our concerns. In today's very competitive market, her expertise helped us to secure an accepted offer with what we would define, if possible, as minimal anxiety. Moreover, where she entirely stands out is in her follow-up care. Two months after closing, Susan is still making the time for us by addressing any questions we have and by helping us with some issues that have arisen. Susan truly exceeds the expectations of a real estate agent, and we are so delighted to have chosen her to help us find our perfect home.
