Here’s what my clients are saying about me…

Happy to be able to write such appreciative words.   Peter was recommended to me by a friend.   Coming from overseas posed numerous challenges to all areas of the home buying process, but all went incredibly smoothly under Peter’s stewardship and guidance.  His great nature, depth of knowledge and attention to our details ensured a stress-free and highly collaborative experience.   His professionalism and patience to guide us through all the steps successfully landed us our ideal home.   I couldn’t recommend him and the staff at MacDonald Realty higher and am pleased to provide a reference – Jonathan & Nevita

 

“When we made the difficult decision to sell our family home of over 40 years, I visited a Macdonald Real Estate office in my neighbourhood were I met the ‘floor duty’ agent Peter Vanderkooy. It was easy to gain rapport right off the bat, he listened to our concerns and created a course of action that was easy to understand. The information was easy to understand and breaking it down to bite-size pieces made is so much easier for us. We always felt our interests were first and foremost and all the directions were above board, we never felt left out of the process, even our family dog of many years was not upset. Even now after some time we feel we got a fair price, Peter worked hard throughout which is why I choose Peter to help with my next Purchase. All in all I appreciate how Peter stays in touch and keeps me current to Real Estate. We would readily recommend Peter.” Terry, East Vancouver 

“I just want to say that when we decided to sell our home and down-size, Peter Vanderkooy was the epitome of a calm and a realistic person. He contacted people who helped us prepare for the Open House with staging and general cleanup. We had been in our home for 40 plus years and so it was very daunting to take the plunge and put it on the market. There were so many memories of raising our family including many family celebrations which meant so much to us. Knowing our neighbours in a wonderful area we were very reluctant to leave, however, Peter put it all into perspective. He acknowledged  what we were leaving but pointed in a very positive way what we would be looking forward to. It was a very emotional time for us but he made the transition so easy!” Norma

Hi Peter, I want to thank-you for providing a positive experience for me in purchasing my condo. You made the process comfortable and easy … Thanks for your guidance along the way.          Nancy

Hello Peter, Thank you for your your patience, guidance and generous time. It helped me in making the right decision in finding my new home.  It was a true pleasure working with you. I will not hesitate in referring people to you for their real estate needs. Sincerely, Al

“Dear Peter, It has been a week since we moved into our new home. I still recall our first meeting during the first open house. It was very efficient that you were able to process the accepted offer just two days after that first meeting and not only that we also took possession and got the keys just a few weeks later.
We can’t be more happy with your professional service, without your efforts, this would not have come true! It was your positive approach, quick response, professional advice and the necessary arrangements that made it all possible.
Thank you for considering our needs, communicating with us and keeping us updated throughout the process. We had a wonderful experience dealing with you and will definitely recommend you to our friends.
Wish you success always! Carol and Vince”

“Dear Peter, We really appreciate the hard work you have done for us, and simply put, it’s quite a relief to have all this completed with such ease and in such a short period of time. Having this property on the market prior with no success made us somewhat nervous going with a full service Realtor and Macdonald Realty.
You very quickly established trust and as it turned out we were able to list our property and have an accepted offer within a week. Then, we handed over the keys a few short weeks later, truly beyond our expectations.
We know that a lot of hard work went into this by you and the Macdonald Realty Team. Thank you very much, we will be very happy to refer you to our friends and family in the future and keep you in mind for our own Real Estate needs.
Much Success, Nola”

I always remember MacDonald realty because of you as your approach seemed very solid, professional and upfront and honest. You had answered my questions at the showing with conciseness and not ‘ducking and diving’ which I found a lot of during the house search. Thanks and keep up the great work! Jacqueline.

“Peter is a high-integrity person that cares deeply about delivering a professional, “world-class” experience for his real-estate clients. His extensive professional sales background, strong work-ethic and natural charisma give him the ability to command respect, influence and get everyone involved in a real estate negotiation “on-side”. When considering a realtor to represent your real estate interests, Peter Vanderkooy should behigh on your list” Maria & Lorenzo
