Being a first time homebuyer can be a scary and overwhelming process
Being a first time homebuyer can be a scary and overwhelming process. Hafez was recommended to us by a work colleague and after hearing the positive experience ...that they had with Hafez, we decided to contact him. After a little bit of back and forth Hafez was able to build us a customized online portal with places that were within our price range, and in the area (SFU) that we wanted to purchase in. When there were some places that interested us Hafez took us for a showing and went over the entire purchasing process in full detail. Hafez was extremely knowledgable in the SFU (UniverCity) community...

Hafez understanding and knowledge of the real estate market is second to none
My family was very pleased and happy with the expertise and detail that Hafez gave us when we were helping our mom sell our family home.

...Hafez conducted himself with superior professionalism, honesty and alacrity.
Hafez assisted us with, both the sale, and purchase of our new home in the SFU area.
Throughout both transactions, Hafez conducted himself with superior professionalism, honesty and alacrity. We had never experienced that level of service and competence from a realtor, or any other professional. Although both were small transactions (by Vancouver standards) Hafez treated us as valued clients and was always responsive and resourceful. His zen like attitude in the face of many challenges and his capable negotiating abilities were invaluable and reassuring.
We are glad to report that...

"Thank you Hafez for your professionalism and skills both in the purchase of my Univercity condominium, and 2 1/2 years later in the sale. When I purchased I really appreciated how you took the time to understand my situation (starting a consulting company) and helped me find the right condo to support that purpose - many different personal and business variables were involved. Now 2 1/2 years later I have moved into a house and the business is thriving. In no small part due to the short term equity gain realized from my Univercity condo which helped me launch the business through...

I immediately clicked with Hafez over the phone and decided upon meeting that I wanted to work with
"Hafez was very professional and friendly. I was leery about dealing with a realtor after two unsatisfactory phone interviews with other potential realtors. However, I immediately clicked with Hafez over the phone and decided upon meeting that I wanted to work with him. He worked hard to listen to what we thought we needed and was very supportive when we reversed course and went with something completely different than we had first described. Our purchase was very simple and quick but Hafez shone at every opportunity he had from arranging meetings through getting us an extra fob at his expense."...

We had a nice house, my husband made some great updates to it, but alas he wanted more projects, so it was time to think about moving. Even with all the extras to make our house showhome ready, it was a task for Hafez to make sure it was perfect, and with his incredible attention to detail and obvious experience he guided us to make some minor and major changes.
At any given time, Hafez was available to us whether it was to find...
