The Zwick Real Estate Group are the best in the industry. We found an incredible house and sold our condo in no time flat. Very professional, friendly and knowledgeable. I learned a lot about buying and selling and wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Highly recommend this group for your buying and selling needs.
Chimes Real Estate Group has built a very strong team. They've helped friends and clients with home purchases and I'm always glad to work together. Every one of their clients has been knowledgeable about the home buying process and understands what to expect. It's a pleasure to work with clients who are so well informed and taken care of. As a mortgage broker who works with dozens of realtors, they are at the top!
We could not be happier with the Zwick Real Estate Group helping us with the sale and purchase of our Vancouver Condo. During the purchase process they provided us with great advice and their knowledge of the Vancouver market was very obvious. We found an amazing place at a great price and closed the deal in no time flat. When the time came to sell again they came to our aid with great tips on how to best get the place ready to sell and then knocked the sale out of the park! They were unbelievably helpful in the process too helping with all the organization and went above and beyond on multiple occasions to make sure everything ran smoothly. We would highly recommend the Zwick Real Estate Group to anyone considering buying or selling in Vancouver.
Thanks to Ben and Anna for the quick and successful sale of our condo! We really appreciated how efficient and smoothly everything went with the staging, open houses and contract signing!
We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Ben Chimes to friends and family. We were first time buyers and his knowledge, clear communication skills and patience helped guide us through an extremely difficult process - buying in the craziness that is Vancouver! He is honest and trustworthy and will not let you make a bad investment. He genuinely wants to get the right property for you. His knowledge of condo buildings throughout Vancouver is excellent and he also has added construction/renovation knowledge, which we didn't end up needing but was useful in the process of deciding. We are extremely happy with our purchase and grateful for his excellent negotiation skills in helping us get it for a fair price.
Rob is the only agent I trust to guide me through the Vancouver residential market.
He is knowledgable, HONEST about your prospects, skilled. Rob will market your property so that it makes the greatest impact and hits the market at the right time. He is polite and respectful, humble and available. Unflappable. Very impressive.
Rob's assistant Samantha is the consummate professional. She is direct, efficient, thorough, executing her many tasks with seamless perfection. She says little and does much.
During the Santa Claus Parade, she even persuaded the police to let her get past street barricades to host my Open House. She arrived on time, elegantly dressed, and smiling.
My downtown condo sold over asking in 3 days.
Thank you Rob and Samantha -- it was wonderful working with you.
I sold my Vancouver condo with Ben Chimes in October 2017, and would highly recommend him.
I sold my property while abroad, so I needed someone I could trust to manage all aspects of the sale at a distance and keep me informed. In advance of my sale, I made a list of real estate agents recommended by friends and colleagues and telephone interviewed the top four. Ben Chimes was the best of all agents we interviewed; calm and personable, offering early tips on the sale, and an excellent communicator.
With the unit now sold, we can say with certainty that we made the right choice: Ben did an excellent/excellent job. From beginning to end, he kept me informed, explained the rationale behind the sales price, the pros and cons of the current market conditions, and the steps he would take to arrange showings. He was quick to reply whenever I reached out. His marketing (which I did not see myself) was clearly effective, because the showings were very well attended. My parents visited the showing he organized and were very impressed with the reception and sales material distributed. As the bids came in, he reviewed them in short order and clearly laid out the pros and cons of each.
Overall, the entire sale process was a very positive experience. I would highly recommend Ben to anyone seeking a real estate agent in Vancouver.
Ben was a pleasure to work with. He was always in communication with me and was a total professional at every level. I strongly believe that if it were not for Ben I would not have got top dollar for my home and also would not have bought my current home where I am truly happy.
I would not hesitate to recommend his services to all family, friends and colleagues.
From start to finish Ben was great at soothing away any fears I had about entering the housing market as a first time home buyer. He was well educated about the properties I was interested in and was able to point out all the pros and cons of each. I would recommend Ben to anyone I knew who was looking at buying or selling in Vancouver.
Ben is one of the most professional and competent real estate professionals I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with in my life!
Super power: Calm demeanor. I have never seen him flustered or angry, always calm and collected. A truly difficult and critical skill set in today's real estate world.
Truly caring about his client comes across with both a focus on clear, concise and honest communication and being humble. It was clear from day one that Ben knew what he was talking about and yet we never got a sense of any ego, only a professional and relaxed behaviour which instantly put us at ease and reaffirmed we were in good hands.
Ben's presentation was outstanding, clean and sharp marketing and ultimately an amazing sale and purchase result led us to our first home. Add that Ben has a great team working with him made us feel confident that should we not be able to reach him, someone from his team or his personal associate Anna was a phone call away.
I would highly recommend Ben Chimes to anyone I know, without doubt.
Ben is incredibly knowledgeable and professional. When buying my first home, we searched for months, Ben was consistently patient and gave very sound advice. He helped me find a home I love.
Looking for a place in Vancouver's hot real estate market was frustrating at the best times, however Rob guided me through this difficult process, and helped me get my perfect new home!
Ben help us find our dream home, in a great neighborhood, two years ago. We still love it, and him! He persevered with us as we looked at home after home, for several months. We even put in an offer on our house, lost, looked at others, and then found out the first place was still available. Ben facilitated it all. He's knowledgeable, professional, and really goes to bat for you. He's not afraid to give honest opinions and let us know when our expectations were unrealistic. Just a great guy!
Ben has helped us both buy and sell and we have been more than happy with the service he provides. Professional listing brochures that highlighted our property when we were selling and market trends and analysis presented on the communities we were interested in buying in.
Ben helped us get into our first home and we couldn't have done it without him!
My wife and I worked with Ben on the purchase of our first home together as well as the sale of my previous condo. Ben was amazing to work with! With exceptional market knowledge, complete honesty and a down-to-earth approach he managed to help guide us through what can be a very stressful process (chasing Vancouver real estate!) with relative ease and gave us the confidence we needed. After only a few discussions he knew exactly what we were looking for and wasn’t shy to steer us clear of potentially poor long-term investment decisions, putting our best interests above all else.
In the end, we found the perfect new home and despite an overly competitive bidding process, we won because we had the best realtor in our corner! He and his team also did an outstanding job selling my condo and exceeding any and all expectations.
We recommend Ben to anyone we know looking at making a move in Vancouver real estate, and we look forward to working with him again when the time comes!
