What Are Past Client's Saying About Hafez?

My brother and I used Hafez off a recommendation from my Dad's co-worker to buy our first home! And he has been excellent at helping us navigate this complicated purchase. As well as great advice when he got a bad feeling to make sure we found the place that is right for us. Now we haven't got the keys just yet but it has been an easy and smooth process and I'm sure the final stages will be as well. He is quick to respond to any questions and even quicker to arrange showings that worked around our busy work schedule so we didn't miss out! I don't have much experience in the home buying process,...

On behalf of my family, I would like to take a moment to extend to you our appreciation for your extraordinary efforts, hard work, and patience for both selling and purchasing a new house. Thanks, in your case, certainly is not enough!

I interviewed many realtors prior to hiring you. You were well prepared and the way you shared your knowledge on the strategies for investing in real estate, I felt you care the most about your clients' needs. And now, I am confident more than before to say you are one of the most customer obsessed realtors.

Your frequent communication, promptness, professionalism,...

We are residents of Ontario and were looking to buy some property in Burnaby. As we were new to the BC real estate market we really wanted someone that we could put our faith in and that would look after our best interests.

When we first contacted Hafez we immediately felt that he was very knowledgeable about the local real estate market, history on the area and market conditions.

Hafez gave us a very good understanding of the differences in the two markets and was there step... by step with us throughout the entire buying procedure even though we were thousands of kilometers away during the...

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...

Our experience with Hafez Panju started with a strong recommendation from friends who recently sold their house for 400k over asking. They told us they were completely thrilled with his service. We said…’give us the name of that realtor!’

Our first and lasting impression of Hafez was of complete professionalism and superior competency. He is very experienced and knowledgeable and immediately started us on the road towards selling our house. He neatly rode the line between taking input from us while using his skills to guide us to a stronger sale. We ended up with multiple offers...

As a first-time homebuyer, I had no idea how complex the real estate process is. Hafez was great in that he helped guide me through each step from beginning to end. He was always available to answer any questions I had. And I really valued the opinions and advice he gave me. He made it clear from day one that my satisfaction was his number one priority and it really showed. I would definitely recommend HafezRealty for anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

We met Hafez five years ago as our realtor for the purchase on our SFU condo. We were very pleased with the quality of service, honesty, and professionalism he provided for us. Naturally, when it was time to sell, we wanted to use Hafez again. Hafez met with us and with his substantial knowledge of the real estate market, especially the SFU area, he efficiently listed our condo and was able to bring us an offer of 98% of our asking price . With our condo being sold our family needed a new home. Hafez patiently and attentively worked with us to find a place that would suit all of our family...

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...

"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."...

"Moving is never easy, however if you have the pleasure of dealing with a good realtor somehow it changes things. We were lucky, we had a great realtor, Hafez Panju. 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...
