February Greetings,

The real estate market has been very active over the past few months and January was no exception!  In the first month of 2021, Greater Vancouver's housing market continued the pattern set at the end of last year with home sale activity outpacing the supply of homes listed for sale.

Market activity varies significantly depending on the specific neighbourhood and type of home. To find out what's happening in your neighbourhood or if you are thinking of making a move, call/text Karel 604-329-1430 or Darryl 604-644-5920 or let's chat over a virtual Zoom coffee!

We can help you navigate through this market, ensuring any purchase and/or sale goes smoothly.


We have many success stories and we can help you with our market expertise. More than ever, it is critical to hire an agent with experience. 

We hope you enjoy this month's newsletter. 

604-678-3334. OFFICE

Best Wishes,


Karel and Darryl
