Testimonials

In this ultra-competitive market you need someone who can help you get in front of the pack! Jay Durant (Global News)

I entrusted Erik with finding several properties over the years and couldn’t be happier with that decision. Entering the market can be unnerving, Erik made the whole process much easier and free of pressure by being a very open and knowledgeable communicator. From the first day of touring listings I knew I had selected someone who held my best interests above his own and was only going to be happy when I was. Erik streamlined the search and focused on the exact type of properties I was looking for. It didn’t take him long to find it. His wealth of knowledge over a diverse range of neighbourhoods and the status of the market at the time proved invaluable when it came time to narrow the focus. He was very thorough and went over every detail a buyer needs to be aware of when making a life-changing purchase. His intimate understanding of building codes, property pitfalls and rain screening helped me avoid choosing a potentially high-risk property. With Erik’s expertise and advice, I knew with certainty that he had found the ideal properties for me. I couldn’t be happier with the level of service I received from Erik. I would highly recommend working with Erik to anyone who is considering the purchase of a home or investment property. Thanks again Erik!

 


Erik is a true gentleman with a high level of integrity and professionalism. – Dr Jonathan Suzuki

I highly recommend Erik Madsen. I have used his services for both the sale of my townhouse in Vancouver and also for the purchase of my new home in the Okanagan. Erik is a very creative, energetic and results-oriented realtor with tremendous work ethic and definitely goes above and beyond the call of duty when it comes to the sale of your home. Erik was available to me everyday at all hours throughout both transactions, which was so very helpful to me during those stressful times. He presented the most modern and innovative marketing plan of all the realtors I interviewed and ultimately created a great result as my home sold in mere days for an amount that definitely far exceeded my expectations. Trust Erik! He managed every detail and all scheduled timelines he promised were met. Erik is a true gentleman with a high level of integrity and professionalism. In short – a fantastic realtor.

 


A good realtor is worth their weight in gold! – Melanie Cater

There isn’t a shortage of realtors in Vancouver so picking the right one for you can be a daunting task. Let me reassure you that you’re on the right track. After my first home buying experience 9 years ago I was really nervous to do it all over again. I couldn’t afford another mistake and I knew I wanted someone I could trust, as the job was much bigger this time around. I was not only selling my home, I also needed to quickly purchase another. I was on a budget, tight time frame and was losing my job. It was a nightmare situation for any realtor. Thankfully I have been fortunate enough to be friends with Erik for over a decade so for me the ‘picking the right realtor’ part of the process was an easy decision. What I was blown away with was the level of professionalism Erik brought to the table. From the assessment, photos, and staging to the brochures, advertising, media blasts and on site work each phase was set to succeed. My first offer was at full asking price, it was the perfect situation for the next part, buying. Erik worked diligently, often late into his evenings. He secured us an accepted offer 12 days after my sale on a coveted new built townhome within my preferred area. It came within budget and adhered to my ridiculous move date. You can’t trust something like this to just anybody. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome and couldn’t recommend a more detailed, hardworking and loyal realtor to represent you. Your search ends here. Thank you Erik, I couldn’t have done it without you.

 


I would highly recommend Erik to prospective sellers/buyers and wish him the very best in the future. – James Webster

I would like to express my thanks and appreciation for your hard work in getting my house sold for a record breaking price. I enjoyed working with you and found you to be professional and very accurate with your analysis of the housing market and the strategies you employed in order to get my house sold. I was very pleased with the marketing of my home and the whole selling process. You always kept me informed of potential buyer’s feedback and comments. Erik, you took all my worries away and made the selling process stress free through your professionalism. When it came to buying my new home you found me a diamond in the rough. I still can not believe the buying price you managed to negotiate on my new purchase after the inspection. You sold my old place for way over asking and bought my new one for way under asking, what more could I ask for. Thank you for the great result and I look forward to working with you in the future. I would not hesitate to refer any of my friends to you as I was extremely satisfied. Thanks Erik!

 


Erik helped me every step of the way. – Barb Carlyle

I hired Erik as my realtor and he helped me every step of the way (including staging) as I prepared my place for an open house. The brochure he produced with his photographer to expose my property to potential buyers on MLS, showcased my property in the best light possible. Through his perseverance and skills he was able to get me an amazing offer, well over asking price. He worked collaboratively with all parties involved to put the deal together. He was always available, keeping me well informed, and ensured that I understood the details of the transaction. When it came to the purchase of my new property once again his negotiation skills shone through and I came out much further ahead than originally anticipated. I felt confident and reassured that my interests were his first and only priority. I have recommended him to friends and will continue to recommend Erik to anyone wanting the most professional realty service possible.

 


We could not be happier! – Michael Heinrich & Dr. Rachel Delong

Finding the perfect home in the Vancouver real estate market was exceptionally difficult, but when we did, Erik’s strategic plan ensured that we got what we wanted in the end (despite multiple offers). Looking back, Erik made a stressful and anxious time go smoothly. We now own a wonderful and beautiful home that we love, and we could not be happier. Thanks Erik!!!

 

 


You’re the best Erik! – Jason & Kika Hilton

I’ve known Erik for 15 years. Long before he became a realtor. He always said he would be the one to find my wife and I a place. I like to think of myself as his first or second client. I can remember telling him my specific needs and what I wanted. It was never written down on paper, but I had some very petty needs that if the place didn’t have it, I would not buy it !!! He understood that, and didn’t waste my time looking at places I wouldn’t like. He showed us a few places downtown, this was for us to realize that what is available in our price range, won’t get me what I wanted. My wife was getting impatient, and had a friend that was a realtor as well, had a bunch of listings, but they were all a waste my time looking at them, because they didn’t cater to my very specific needs. It just so happened on that Friday night on our way home, Erik calls and he tells me about the perfect place he found for us. He said the place covered all my crazy requirements other than one, it not being in the downtown core, but it was a penthouse. I got home and checked out the listing. I was ready to buy it without looking at it. We went to view it the afternoon on Saturday. Three weeks later, we moved in! Erik got it for us at a great price, 24k below asking! He showed true professionalism and integrity throughout the process, and found us a penthouse that we love.

You’re the best Erik! Thanks again for everything.

 


You’re in good hands with Erik. – Dr. Heather McLeod

He is a very skilled negotiator, professional and easy to work with. He will always have your best interest at heart when making a deal. He definitely exceeded my expectations when he achieved a record setting sale price on my property. I was very impressed with the professional photographs and marketing materials. You’re in good hands with Erik.

Erik was very professional. – Dr Brad Kehoe

Erik was a very professional, extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic Realtor who was always quick to return my calls. His attention to detail and his positive recommendations made the sale go smoothly. I would definitely use Erik again and would highly recommend him to other, in fact I already have.

 

 


Erik came highly recommended – Catharine Neill

I decided I should try to sell my place as I was retired and wanted to move to Victoria. Erik came highly recommended by several of my neighbours at Pelican Pointe so I contacted him. Erik was so professional. He came over and explained his standards as an agent and how he would stage my place which I couldn’t imagine how he was going to do it.  He worked tirelessly staging my place decluttering it and always consulted with me. Pictures were taken and a very professional brochure was made and posted on MLS after researching the stats of sales in my community and suggesting an agreeable price to ask. Within a week we had our first weekend open house. Low and behold we had several offers and by the Monday night and it was sold for over asking! I would highly recommend Erik Madsen. Erik is still there for me in my journey of moving out offering advice which is so wonderful. Whether you are buying or selling either a house or a condo give him a call. Let him work his magic!  Thanks again for all your hard work Erik.
