What Are Past Client's Saying About Hafez?


My daughter and I were looking to buy a two-bedroom condo and a friend recommended Hafez. We are tremendously grateful to our friend for recommending him.

Hafez was honest, extremely helpful and supportive, very knowledgeable about the real estate market, and responsive to emails, texts, and inquiries that we had before, during, and after the purchase. He always made communication a priority and ensured that we were well informed about the many steps in the purchase process. In addition, we truly felt that he was looking out for our best interests at all times. He has a keen eye for highlighting...


I have bought and sold many times over the years and I have to say working with you is by far the best experience ever! 

Your professionalism, mentorship, knowledge, honesty, and hard work ethic are much respected and appreciated! . 

You kept me informed every step of the way and got things rolling and completed without me being in town. 

You worked your magic and I could not be happier.  

Thank you Hafez for making this a fun and memorable experience for me. 


Highly recommend Hafez, he executed amazing marketing strategies along with a professional team for staging and photos that really showcased our home, resulting in a quick sale. Hafez is very knowledgeable and professional which made selling our home uncomplicated.

As long-time members of the SFU Burnaby Mountain community, we had heard of Hafez Panju before we decided to look for a larger home in our neighbourhood. What we have appreciated in working with him in the purchase of one condo and the sale of another is the integrity, expertise, and unceasing attention he offers his clients. The care Hafez takes in responding to the many details and questions that arise when buying and selling properties is exceptional. We have bought and sold several homes in different cities over the years, and Hafez Panju is without doubt the best realtor...


I would like to say a big "thank you!" for your tireless hard work, your effective marketing methodology, and most importantly your abundance of professional experience and judgement. We also felt very well served throughout this process thanks to your transparent and timely communications. The fact that we negotiated both offers during the height of pandemic, particularly while you were under quarantine procedures, speaks volume how effective of a communicator you are.

Through past encounters and dealings with you, be it the pony rides at the community carnivals or the ...


Hafez is an absolute pleasure to work with! His deep knowledge of the industry, and vast experience working in UniverCity at SFU, made the process of buying and selling in a crazy market so much less stressful. He always made us feel like we were his top priority and ensured that all the details - big or small - were completely taken care of. This is our third time working with Hafez and we can't recommend him highly enough.

We also appreciate the fact that he's transparent, patient, and has always looked out for our best interests. We highly recommend connecting with Hafez for any real estate inquiries.

Hafez Panju is by far the best realtor that I’ve ever worked with. He recently helped my son, a first-time home owner, buy his first condo. Hafez gave great advice, made the process seamless, and seemed to be available 24/7. He knows the market and consistently went above and beyond for us. My son looks forward to recommending him to all of his friends when they are ready to purchase their first home.

K. D. & J. D.


Hafez was absolutely wonderful to work with. It’s like having a friend on the “inside” that is working for you. He really cares about his clients as well as understands the SFU's unique community and neighborhood. I can’t speak highly enough of Hafez as our real estate agent. His professionalism, knowledge, honesty, integrity and hard work ethics were very much appreciated and respected. He was detail oriented, honest, good with people and has a knack for matching the buyer with what my needs were as the seller. Any questions I had, I could approach him with confidence knowing...


Just wanted to add my thanks also for helping us once again with our real estate needs. As a first time home buyer, you have helped make the process less stressful and easier to navigate for our son. Your professionalism and knowledge of the market are second to none. Thank you for not only meeting expectations but exceeding it. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to other family and friends for their real estate transactions. 

R. L & H. L.


Hafez, thank you for helping us with the purchase of our new home at SFU. We liked your approach, specifically that you were Always available for any question we had. And that’s in addition to your dedication and expertise. We felt supported every step of the way, which was very important not just because we were first-time buyers but also that we were quite skeptical about real estate at first.

S. S & A. S.


Incredibly, Hafez managed to sell our Mom’s condo in record time in the middle of the peak of the COVID-19 pandemic. Hafez put protocols in place to safeguard owners, realtors, and prospective buyers during the sale process while still maintaining momentum and interest during uncertain times. Hafez is a truly an experienced, strategic, thoughtful and capable real estate professional. After many years of his exceptional service, we wouldn’t trust our real estate needs to anyone else.’..

Hafez was prompt and thorough which allowed us to find the absolute perfect first home for us in only a short period of time. The energy he put in to meet our needs made us feel like we were his top priority and treated us warmly with open arms. Hafez is genuinely kind and made us feel like it was not just a transaction but a memorable mile stone in our lives. We really appreciate his support during...


In 2 days, Hafez has done more work than another agent has done for us in a month!

As soon as we asked Hafez to be our listing agent, things went so fast! He is so motivated, organized and doesn’t waste any time to get you a buyer and negotiates the best deal for you! Yes, because of Hafez, we got a great prize for our place with some extras!

We are so glad we contacted Hafez when we were ready to look for our next investment property. From the day I have contacted Hafez to the day our offer was accepted; Hafez made us feel like his #1 priority.

When we decided to buy a condo at SFU for our daughter we worked with Hafez Panju who found the perfect unit for us that ticked all the boxes.  As we were new to the experience of buying property on the campus, Hafez took the time to explain the process and answered all our questions thoroughly.  He is very knowledgable about all aspects of purchasing and living on campus and was able to give us valuable insight into home ownership in this unique environment.  Hafez was always available and responded to our emails or phone calls right away but never left us feeling pressured.  He...


In buying or selling your property, you want to be represented by someone who is enthusiastic, ethical, committed, available, professional, diligent and exceptional at his job. All of these terms describe Hafez. The service that he provides is amazing, ensuring the optimal realtor experience in every way. He is the best real estate agent with whom my husband and I have worked in years. We are delighted to highly recommend him without hesitation!

Hafez is an absolutely amazing relator, who goes above and beyond. We have now bought and sold with Hafez. Hafez goes out of his way to ensure everything is in order and all questions/concerns are addressed (some of these questions we never even thought of). His knowledge is one of a kind!  After the sale and our purchase his contact doesn’t stop he sends friendly reminders on completing speculation tax and so on.  Hafez’s service is top notch!  I have referred him on to other family members who have all been beyond satisfied with his services!   If you are thinking...
