I loved working with Shawn. He setup custom alerts and smoothly negotiated our crazy bidding war which ultimately led to the purchase of a new condo. Cannot recommend highly enough!

I totally recommend everyone to work with Emily Douglass, of Vancity Listings for all of your real estate needs, as she is very passionate about what she does. She stands apart from the crowd, as she is not a yes-man, and you will have those I-told-you-so moments, as she will guide you to do your best as a buyer. She's professional, and proactive at everything, and extremely approachable. She has replied to my texts at 3am in the morning, which I did not expect. She has great market knowledge and negotiation skills. We lost our first property of choice due to multiple offers, at which point, she had guided us that it may not be worth quoting more but it is our call. But she made sure, to do a thorough search in order to get us an even better property in the same community that we had liked so much, still within our budget. She has definitely exceeded our expectations, as this very day, we are the proud owners of our first home in Vancouver. Thank you very much Emily, for all your effort and time! Thanks to Vancity Listings, our home purchase was a breeze.

Shaune Bowers is the best agent I have worked with in Vancouver, B.C., or anywhere else for that matter. We first worked together selling my property in Gastown. He came to my place, we brainstormed, he came up with a great idea which we executed - we had multiple offers for above asking in a week. That was during the boom times of Real Estate in Vancouver. We sold the condo in 7-10 days. The second transaction we did together, very recently, was selling another condo I owned at a much higher price point, in a very difficult market, one where the units in my price range were the hardest to sell. We tried a couple of ideas that didn't feel right. Then we came up with a third. This time we hit. 7 or 8 offers in less that a week. I was ready to take the first offer, which turned out to be the best offer, but Shaune guided me to wait - if we took the first offer, he said, we would forever wonder if we left money on the table. We gave it another 6 days. We received 7 more offers. As it turned out the first one was the best, we accepted it, and the condo was sold. I don't have to worry that I left money on the table. I know we got the best price we could get. We used the same notary to close as in the first sale, Leonard Atwood, who is also excellent. Shaune's whole team is excellent. And did I mention we got 100K over asking on this deal? Shaune also introduced to to Canadian Poutine. He couldn't believe I didn't know what it was, so he treated me to a beer and poutine. How can you do better than that?

Shaune has sold my two properties in the last four years and is very professional, uses stats as comparables when purchasing and selling properties and extremely organized and available. I highly recommend using him as a realtor. Not pushy at all but knows his facts.

Emily Douglass has recently sold a property for us requiring a great deal of detail work. She was incredibly diligent in researching information, acting on it and ensuring the desired outcomes were achieved. She was excellent at analyzing the market and keeping us updated on an ongoing basis until a successful sale was accomplished. She definitely worked hard on our behalf. We have no hesitation in recommending her services to family and friends.

I had great experience working with Shaune. He is very knowledgeable, attentive, helpful and willing to spend his time to familiarize a client with various aspects of the current Vancouver real estate market. He provides useful guidance and quick response. I would definitely recommend Shaune January 2021. It has been two years since I used Shaune's help for the first time. Now I am a returning customer. I am happy with the service again. Very friendly, very helpful, and highly professional.

Shaune was a pleasure to work with throughout our search for our first home. We especially appreciated his advice, support, responsiveness and attention to detail. He helped us navigate through a complex float home purchase and managed unexpected twists with ease and optimism, always taking time to explain things and helping us prepare for the next step. We would not hesitate to recommend Shaune and Vancity Listings to anyone looking to purchase a home.

I had an excellent experience with Emily Douglass at Vancity Listings and these are what make Emily stands out in the crowd: 1- Fantastic attitude and loves what she is doing. Emily helped me to purchase a property for my parents. While my parents were not able to speak English, Emily did a fantastic job to make connection with them and ensured that their questions were answered no matter if they were not speaking the same language. Job well done Emily! 2- Honesty and integrity: If she doesn't have the answer to your questions she is not shy to say I don't know, but I will find the answer. Trust me, I ask so many hard questions and she always found satisfactory responses with passion. Moreover, she never pushed us into a property to make a quick sale. She spent time for us to find what we love. 3- Exceeding client's expectations. I never expected my realtor to propose helpful solutions when financing with the bank was in a limbo. Or in another occasion she was able to find and call the bank appraiser to help the approval process. She has your back to ensure your purchase goes smoothly, no matter if she needs to do things behind her responsibilities. Thanks Emily! 4- Strong market knowledge and negotiation skills. She provided me tones of market stats helping me to understand the value of comparable sold properties. On top of that, during negotiation process, she was able to read the seller's position resulted in purchasing my parent's dream place at a fantastic price. Thanks Emily and your team for your excellent service and exceeding my expectations. Keep up the good works!

Vancity Listings is by far one of the easiest ways to search for real estate and keep on top of the market everyday. Shaune made it easy and convenient to specify search criteria, save searches, request market reports, and receive daily updates from new listings to price changes. It was also easy to highlight favorite properties at the click of a button and receive fast, detailed information directly. Having access to so much information every day really put us ahead of the game. Thank you!

Emily Douglass is the person you want PERIOD. She is so much thoughtful about your interest, I have little words to thank her actually. We had so many details listed in our search including satisfying vastu requirements-the science of directions... and she went on and on with it, never irritated with driving, finding, doing price analyses, working through the night, early morning, repeatedly answering questions, satisfying apprehensions and so on..Yet, finally, she did a brilliant job! Very neat, to the point, diligent, helpful to the utmost, not money minded, heling me even after the deal is over....she is just soo special. Thanks very very much Emily!!

By: Hannah Stephens
My Partner & I were first time home buyers struggling to find the right relator here in the city. Luckily we met Shaune & Emily a breath of fresh air. Straight to the point, honest and no silly question was silly! Shaune understood our search requirements and taste, he guided us through the whole process and we felt lucky to have him representing us. We found our dream apartment within two weekends of looking with Shaune and today I got the keys! I highly recommend Vancity Listings if your looking for Professional, Honest, Real relators! We will defiantly be working with Shaune on future purchases!

Emily is amazing and supported us every step of the way as we bought our first home, a pre-sale condo in Vancouver. Emily is incredibly knowledgeable about real estate in the Lower Mainland. She was quick to answer all of our questions (of which we had many) and regularly touched based as we waited for our condo to be complete. Emily is so warm and genuine, and really made us feel comfortable as we navigated all the different aspects of home-buying. She also provided great 3rd-party recommendations. Now that we are in our new place, Emily continues to assist us, checking in to make sure all deficiencies are being addressed. It really makes you feel confident knowing someone with knowledge of the process is on your team. I would highly recommend Emily for any home buyer. Thank you Emily! We absolutely love our new home. Andrea, Brendan & Ranger

Emily helped me buy a property and it was a great experience working with her. I knew I was in the right hands from our first meeting. She’s extremely knowledgeable and truly loves what she does. It’s a pleasure talking real estate with her. When I first reached out, I wasn’t sure where to move and was considering a number of areas. She genuinely took the time to find out what was important to me. With expertise throughout Lower Mainland, she made excellent recommendations and her insight was invaluable. We quickly had an accepted offer on a wonderful property that fit all my criteria. Her communication and attention to detail is exceptional. I had peace of mind throughout the entire process. It couldn’t have gone smoother.
By: Jennifer Diner
Emily has gone above and beyond. I followed her recommendation about how to approach listing the property, followed her advice, and there were multiple offers. This woman knows real estate (she actually lives and breathes it) and she was able to answer questions I had. I’ll be exclusively using her services for all future real estate purchases or sales. I highly recommend her!!
By: Teresa Dalphond
Emily Douglas is a very professional realtor and great person to work with. She answered all my questions, which they were many. In the future, if I move again and need her help, i will not doubt in asking for her services. Thank you Emily!!!

The best real estate company I have ever dealt with. Very professional, experienced and helpful agents. Shaune and Emily are absolutely wonderful to work with. It’s like having a friend on the “inside” that is working for you. They really care about their clients. explained everything in a way that was easy to understand from the making the offer, to working with the mortgage banker. Emily was thorough and professional and great to work with. She kept us apprised about available appointments and always let us know as soon as a new one came on the market. She was honest and forthright. Shaune was more than helpful in finding us a House. He was extremely polite, available, friendly, knowledgeable , honest and upfront, and was able to find us a great House that fit right in our price range! He was extremely communicative and easy to reach to answer any of our questions at all times. They are going to sell my town home as well. Highly recommend.

My husband and I had been searching for a forever detached home for awhile and were almost ready to give up when we met Emily Douglass, via social media, by what we like to think of by fate. She listened to our needs in a house and came with us to view any house we were interested in viewing. She knew the right questions to ask selling realtors and was knowledgeable in what could be done in a house as far as renovations and approximate costs. Emily was always professional and answered our questions in inquiries efficiently. Though she was busy with other clients and showing during this crazy market, we always felt like we were her top priority. She is up with the current market trends and accurate with her numbers. After a few months of searching for a home with her in a housing market where supply was low, we finally found and purchased our dream home which ticked most, if not all of our boxes in our number one desired area! Emily also help us sell our townhome and helped us price it so it brought in multiple viewers and in the end, we had multiple offers and sold for more than we hoped for! We are so happy to have met Emily.. she made the buying/selling process more enjoyable when we felt defeated after losing out on a few homes prior to working with her. Definitely recommend her as a realtor and will recommend her to friends and family!
