The point of virtual staging is to catch a buyer’s attention online and get them through your front door for an in-person showing. When done properly virtual staging can transform a cold, vacant condo into an inviting space that potential buyers can envision themselves living in. When done poorly virtual staging can be deceiving...we don't want this; the worst thing that you can do as a seller or listing agent is disappoint a customer when they come for a showing. Personally, I like virtual staging especially for smaller, unique or somewhat awkward spaces.

***NOTE: Virtual Staging is when a graphic designer edits photos of a home and adds to-scale furnishings to the photos. This is done to create a sense of scale and functionality to an otherwise empty

Selling homes is a team effort. We work very closely with our clients through every step of the listing process and when everyone does their job then homes get sold. In this case we had a very specific plan as to how the home should look in person, online and in print. We worked with the seller, our photographer and design team with this plan in mind and it worked out perfectly. Within 20 hours of coming to market we had a conditional offer at 99% of our asking price and we now have a firm sale! If you are interested in working with a Real Estate Team who not only knows the market but believes each home deserves this kind of attention regardless of price point then we would love to talk with you and put our experience to work. 311 Schoooner…

Dear Salespeople, please listen to your customers.

In the midst of the C19 lockdown we received an inquiry through our website from a couple wanting to view our listing in Valley Ridge. We explained the C19 protocols we have in place and asked a number of qualifying questions (9, actually). They let me know they had been self-isolating for about a month, were practicing social distancing and would appreciate if I respected their distance as well. I assured them we were on the same page.

A couple more emails later we found out they were downsizing, had sold their acreage 90 mins outside of town and were planning on seeing our listing and another condo in the Currie Barracks at the same time. We made an appointment to view the condo the next day.

During these unsettling times we don't expect to sell many homes, and that's OK. We truly believe people should be staying at home, not out looking at homes unless it is absolutely necessary. We showed this cute little house to our clients on March 19th just as things were starting to get crazy. Between the listing agents and ourselves we took all advised precautions and added a few of our own including no paper show sheets (digital only), wearing gloves and the sellers left all lights on and doors open for us.

March 19th was the first and only time the buyers saw the house we negotiated over the phone and signed the final contract through Docusign, I met the client a few days later in front of their condo building for the deposit and dropped off

The Sold Story:

We put a lot of effort into marketing our clients homes, regardless of the price point and sometimes our marketing really comes through for us: 2106 950 Arbour Lake Road NW is a beautiful condo with views spanning from the Downtown Skyline, across COP to the Rocky Mountains and we sold it sight unseen!

The buyer was relocating from BC and had been searching online for a few months, she had seen the amazing photos, true to life 3D tour and floor plan for #2106. When she finally sold her home in Langley-with not much time to spare-she contacted her Realtor who after a quick Facetime conversation at the condo submitted an offer that evening and we had a conditional sale by noon the next day. Last night the deal firmed up at
