As I now live in Dallas, it was extremely important to find the right real estate agent to help us sell the condo of a family member who is now in a nursing home.
Brian Street was recommended to us by a Vancouver lawyer, a long time member of our family.
Our family lived in Vancouver many years ago but the shopping center business took me to Calgary. In 1979 we brought the Atlanta Flames to Calgary to become the Calgary Flames. Then, at the request of the NHL, we moved to Minneapolis to buy the Minnesota North Stars in 1990, which we moved to Dallas in 1993 to become the Dallas Stars.
Living in Dallas, we were not in a position to spend the time to sell the condo or manage the necessary renovations, etc. Brian Street not only sold the unit but during the marketing time he managed the operation as if he was the owner.
We were very grateful for his follow through and service.

Having worked with several realtors over the past 10 years, we’d have to say that Brian was one of the best.
Brian’s knowledge about the Downtown neighbourhoods and the history of many buildings in the area was an invaluable resource for us. Always available when we needed him, and willing to get together on very short notice made our search much easier.
We always felt that Brian was there for us, and never felt pressured by Brian or that he had lost interest. Brian definitely went above and beyond in doing research, and following up with any outstanding issues.
We have recommended Brian several times since.

I dreamed of retiring early and buying a big motorhome to tour North America. In order to follow those dreams, it meant selling my Yaletown condominium that I had resided in for fourteen years.
It had been almost as long since I had any dealings with a real estate agent so, in searching for one, I asked a lot of friends, sleuthed online and ultimately decided on an agent who lived in my own area, had a lot of experience, and was held in high regard according to reviews.
I was very lucky! I chose the right real estate agent…Brian Street.
Brian is extremely professional, knowledgeable, meticulous to detail, and has an abundance of great ideas. He knew exactly how to market my property and explained everything to me in detail and how it would be done. I appreciated that because there were no surprises.
My unit sold within weeks and the entire selling procedure was a pleasant experience. I picked the right agent and I would highly recommend him to anyone who wants results. He made my dream come true!
Our situation was unique and complex - a Canadian expat family living abroad selling their tenanted family home. This sale would not have been the success it was without your breadth of knowledge, creativity, your ability to adapt to the situation and your unparalleled leadership.
From the time we entered into negotiation to list the home, you were professional, helpful, patient and remained enthusiastic throughout the entire process. Attention to every detail kept us informed and on top of events from afar, even with the unfavourable time zone difference. If you did not have the answers, you were not afraid to refer us to those that had them. You handled it all single handedly.
Thank you for the referral to Bell Alliance Lawyers, who provided professional and timely service as well as a further referral to Arthur Azana at D+H Group LLP, for assistance regarding a specific tax matter.
This is one instance where I can honestly say that the real estate agent earned every penny of his commission ;)

Brian did a wonderful job helping us find and purchase our home when we moved from California to British Columbia. We found him very knowledgeable about different Vancouver neighborhoods and the surrounding cities which helped us narrow the focus of our search. Brian was also very patient with us as we looked at dozens of condos and then shifted our focus to single family homes. Brian was very responsive to our questions, and when he didn't have an answer he would quickly find someone who did have it
He has access to many great resources which made getting a very favorable mortgage easy and the closing process seamless.
We would definitely recommend Brian the next time you need to buy or sell a home.

Brian, please accept these small tokens of our BIG appreciation for your hard work on our behalf. It bears repeating - your commitment, attention to detail and unfailing ability sustained our confidence from beginning to end.

After several frustrating attempts to work with holier-than-thou realtors, we met Brian and never looked back. Brian consistently went above and beyond our expectations as we searched for the right home in this challenging market.
His patience, honesty and resourcefulness allowed us to make a difficult decision with absolute confidence. We couldn't be happier with our new home in Kitsilano and have since referred Brian to all our friends. He'll be our first call when it's time to move again.

Brian was fantastic to work with. He is conscientious and meticulous. I have a great deal of respect for his knowledge of the Vancouver marketplace and trust in him. I feel he provided us with exceptional customer service.
I would highly recommend Brian to anyone looking for a realtor in Vancouver.

In a town where most of the realtors have become complacent because of the rapid increase in sales prices, Brian works hard to analyze every property to insure the best deal for his client. That's unique today.
Brian has been a long time friend of our family, and I appreciated his patience and willingness to help me find the most appropriate house for my needs. He kept me up to date on available listings, helped walk me through one deal that fell through, and afterwards helped me complete a deal for a house that I am very happy with.
I have had the pleasure of working with Brian and his many clients. Brian is a great professional and provides superior service to his clients. I have no hesitation in recommending his services.
