My name is Paul Toffoli and I’m a realtor with the residential group Realty in Vancouver.
I’ve been a licensed realtor since 2001 so that gives me about 10 years’ experience as a realtor in addition to another 10 years in property and asset management, so I’ve got around 20 years’ experience in real estate.
I’m born and bred in Vancouver so I’m definitely a local boy having grown up here, having seen real estate grow and evolve over the past 30 years.
I think Vancouver is a just a solid investment because we are so desirable to so many people.
I choose to live in Vancouver because we are such a desirable location; we have people who want to move here from all over the world because of the mountains, because of the ocean, because we have such a great cultural life. People love living in Vancouver.
I think having a family gives me better insights into what different people in different stages of their lives are looking for. There are so many different options for place to live. You can buy condos downtown, you can buy single family houses and then move into the suburbs if you want more space.
I think that when you are working with a realtor it has to be someone that you can communicate with and get along with. I think my greatest strength is that I have a lot of knowledge and I’m happy to share that with my clients and I really try to work more as an advisor rather than as a sales person so I’m going to be able to give you information that’s going help you best to market your home, in addition if I’m working with a buyer I’m going to make sure that you know all of the concerns you may have regarding a certain property before you go ahead and make that offer.
Real estate turned out to be something very comfortable for me and it’s something I really enjoy doing, it fits with my personality.
