Testimonials


" Paul is our realtor for one simple reason. I trust him. His knowledge and experience are top notch and his calm demeanour really helps in the often pressure cooker of selling and buying a home. Paul has been voted numerous times as the best Realtor in Vancouver (Georgia Straight) by his clients! This is, in my opinion, because it is deserved. "


Mark


" Working with Paul was a fantastic experience. He is professional, attentive and exceptionally knowledgeable about real estate and the real estate market in Vancouver. Throughout our entire experience of selling our home and purchasing a new one, we felt that we were always in good hands.

Navigating the real estate market can be a stressful and emotionally trying period but having Paul as our representative went a long way in reducing that stress. We wouldnt hesitate to work with him again in the future.

"My questions and unexpected emotions that ensued throughout the process were heard and honored"


“My experiences of listing and selling my home with Paul Toffoli at TRG Realty are treasured moments in time—not soon to be forgotten. My questions and unexpected emotions that ensued throughout the process were heard and honored.

I was also amazed at his patience and understanding when it came to mediating between myself and the purchasers. I would happily talk to anyone who may want to hear me rave on about the care and respect I received.”

 "Your unique knowledge about EVERYTHING related to real estate is special"


Paul, I really appreciated working with you during my home search. Your unique knowledge about “EVERYTHING” related to real estate is special and not found anywhere. The way you care about what we are looking for and do want is real! Thanks a bunch!”

"We had no doubt that Paul was the one we wanted to work with."

 Mark & Siobhan

We met Paul a few years prior to our purchase, when we were renting a basement suite in a beautiful character house. Although it came as a surprise to us that our landlords had decided to sell, we knew were in good hands as soon as we met Paul. Throughout this process Paul showed us that he was professional, considerate, and courteous. Eventually the house was sold, however we were very fortunate to have Paul lead us through the transition with integrity and honesty. 

When we purchased our first home this year, we had no doubt that Paul was the one who we wanted to work with. As we made one of the biggest decisions of our lives together, we knew that we could trust Paul's knowledge and people-skills to help us along. 

We also had the fortunate opportunity to work with his associate, Mandie Hobbs. Throughout our process, Mandie (lovingly) put up with us as we searched for the perfect home. There wasn’t a question that was off-limits or taboo, and we never hesitated to ask for her opinion. Most importantly, she never pushed us into making a decision, and she encouraged us to consider our own needs first.

We are very happy with the quality of service that we have received from both Paul Toffoli and Mandie Hobbs.


 

"I can’t even begin to explain how wonderful of an experience it was to work with you!"


Ozzie 
 
I can’t even begin to explain how wonderful of an experience it was to work with you to find the perfect home for my parents.
 
You see my parents have been renting for 40 years and were finally ready to own a home. You and your team handled this very emotional, scary and exciting milestone in their lives with respect, patience and compassion.

You have provided them with peace of mind and confidence that it’s never too late for a couple at 63 & 73 to own their castle. Every time my mom had a question, an address to view or a comment, you quickly offered your attention. You even worked with me to convince her that moving from False Creek to Richmond was a “good idea”.

We appreciate your passion for your industry as it shows! This is not the first time you facilitated the purchase of a home for my family. My sister loves you too! You give great advice, are thorough and work hard for your clients.

We highly recommend your services to our family and friends wishing to own that perfect home sweet home.


"Paul is not the 1st realtor we have worked with to buy and sell properties – but he is the only one we’d use again."


Shana and Tod

In our experience, Paul Toffoli has been an outstanding Realtor, helping us both sell our home and buy a new one.
 
Paul is not the 1st realtor we have worked with to buy and sell properties – but he is the only one we’d use again. We first met Paul when we were trying to decide whether or not to sell our apartment in downtown Vancouver. We met with a couple of the city’s top realtors, to get both appraisals and advice. In the end, we decided not to sell, but Paul left such an impression that he’s the first person we contacted when we decided to sell our primary residence – about 1 year later.
 
We felt comfortable trusting Paul with our most valuable asset because he’s straightforward, easy to get along with and really good at what he does. WE felt we could be brutally honest with him – and he returned us the favour. He kept us well informed throughout the selling process and was always on top of things without being pushy in the least. He sold our home in less than 1 month, even though it was a difficult market for sellers, and nailed us a deal we were really satisfied with. He didn’t disappoint when we were looking to buy either, and helped us find what we needed.
 
Paul went above the call on several occasions – including on our moving day, when the moving company let us down. He managed to find us superb movers half way through a Saturday. He’s amazing.
 
We’re still in contact and are sure this is a partnership -and friendship- that will endure.


Thank you Paul!



"Paul listed the house for the price I requested. He devoted his focus to my property, held open houses consistently, and aggressively marketed..."

 Catherine
 
I interviewed several of the top West Side Realtors to list my home near Arbutus and West 61st Avenue, in Vancouver, BC. Out of all of the proposals I received, your package was the most complete, and the comparable's were the most accurate. I decided to hire you as my listing agent.
 
The sale of my home came at the most difficult time for a seller in the current market situation. The real estate market had just encountered a major correction on the downside, particularly for higher priced homes and the West side area.
 
Many of his competitors, tried to convince me to list the house for $300,000 lower than my expectations were. I believe those agents were trying to list my house lower, to get a quick sale in a tough market. I valued my home, and did not agree. Without telling Paul my experience, his proposal on the list price was in line with mine, and I immediately hired him.
 
Paul listed the house for the price I requested. He devoted his focus to my property, held open houses consistently, and aggressively marketed the area with ad campaigns in mail outs, and the local newspapers.
 
The sale of my home was also very difficult, as it was a result of my divorce. This was heartbreaking for me, as it involved my children, and a home in which I was attached to, and had many fond memories.
 
Not only was the financial stress over-whelming, but I was dealing with a tremendous amount of emotional stress involved with the sale of the house. As in any divorce, communication was difficult at times for all of us. Paul had to deal with many issues involving the sale of the house between my ex-husband and I. There were times, when I had to meet with Paul and my emotions were broken down and I was in tears.
 
Not only did Paul act professionally, he acted personally. He always offered his friendship in the process, should I need it. He offered a shoulder, he wasn’t aggressive at inappropriate times, and I truly felt his motives were to work to the best of his efforts for me. He proved to me, it was my best interests he was looking out for.
 
Paul sold my home within two months of the list date for a price I was quite satisfied with. He also added many beneficial features to the closing details and the contract. Again, for my benefit, and beyond his call of duty as a Realtor.

Thank you Paul for all you have done for me in the sale of my house. I highly recommend that anyone whom is selling their home in difficult times, to use you. I look forward to recommending your services in the future.


"Paul has been an outstanding realtor for us for many reasons, but the most important is he has consistently put our needs first..."


Claire

Paul has been an outstanding realtor for us for many reasons, but the most important is he has consistently put our needs first; long before a sale for himself!
 
Several times we liked a property, but Paul was honest about the drawbacks of it because of the scale of renovations required or a problem in the location. We greatly appreciated his honesty!
 
Paul worked really hard to make sure the the two properties we bought met our needs and advised us on possible renovations (costs, time, what's involved). Not every realtor has this knowledge.
 
This, combined with his extensive knowledge of the individual neighbourhoods of Vancouver, years of experience in the Vancouver real estate market and his jovial nature made him the perfect fit for us.


The service did not end once we'd bought either as he has built up an extensive list of trusted service people from plumbers to handymen so we have been supported 200% on this journey. I would not hesitate to recommend Paul to anyone wanting an extremely knowledgeable, trustworthy, hard working realtor.



"Thank you so much for your many hours of work, when you knew you might not be making a sale. I truly believe your priority is helping people find their best home..."

 Elinor , Professional Organizer
 
I would like to thank you for helping one of my oldest clients and dearest friends.My friends were debating renovating versus selling earlier this summer, I suggested they ask you for an appraisal and for some real estate advice.
 
I knew I could trust you to give fair, unbiased, non-pressured input, having seen your integrity at work with colleagues and when I helped you organize your office. Over the years I had consistently seen you live up to your tagline “Paul sells homes.”
 
My friends were impressed when you came to their home, spent time with them,asked key questions, and gave them an appraisal. But you didn’t stop there, you went the extra mile, or miles. You offered to help them explore the market to make sure they were comfortable with their decision. You were very good at understanding their needs, including access and disability issues, what kind of community they were looking for, and their proximity to their grandchildren.
 
You even had your associate Mandy researching accessible swimming pools in several Vancouver neighbourhoods, and drove my client, with her travel scooter, to many properties. You patience and calm were appreciated.
 
My clients are now renovating, after deciding not to sell, but they made their choice based on a much better understanding of the real estate market.

Thank you so much for your many hours of work, when you knew you might not be making a sale. I truly believe your priority is helping people find their best home, and not simply selling real estate.



 "You are a professional's professional and a realtor's realtor."

 
Jana and Gregory
 
In the bizarro world of realty and realtors, you sir are a king! You are a professional's professional and a realtor's realtor.
 
Jana and I would like to take this moment to thank you for all that you have done.
 
You made everything look effortless and easy in the stressful process of house hunting.
 
We appreciate how you made yourself available 24/7, held our hands when they needed holding and nudged our shoulders when it was time to move on.
 
When it was time for negotiating and dealing with the seller and their realtor we felt oh so empowered knowing that our realtor was on top of his game and the better player.
 
We will refer you to all who are in need of a great realtor.


Thanks again!


 


"Thanks!"

Glen  & Rita 

Paul thanks for all your help in buying our new home.

 

I've dealt with over 10 realtors over the years and you are by far the best! You pay attention to the small details other realtors overlook. I will highly recommend you to my family and friends.

 

Thanks again for the spectacular gift basket, we love it!

                                                                                                 


"Pleasure to work with!"

Lani 

I've had the pleasure of working with Paul Toffoli and seeing him in action. Yes, Paul is experienced, knowledgeable, and professional. But what really sets Paul apart is his genuine caring and compassion. Paul takes the time to sit down to really listen and learn about his clients needs. he follows up with frequent contact, giving shrewd advice and calm support throught the negotiation process. He keeps his eye on the ball.

As for customer service, Paul really goes the extra mile. It's not every day that someone with an MBA degree climbs into a bathtub to fix plumbing with vaseline! For an innovative realtor with brains and a great big heart, Paul is your man. 

 



"Satisfied Seller!"

 Christine

I wanted to thank you, and let you know that we couldn't be happier with how things worked out. We were so happy to get top price! I was impressed with your professionalism and attention to detail throughout the inspections, the offer presentations, as well as being very courteous to our tenant, making sure that he was comfortable with viewing times.

You offered excellent advice along the way and helped us to feel comfortable and in control. When we received the bids, your were able to explain the pros and cons of each one very clearly so that we could understand them.

You responded promptly on any request and kept us informed of the numbers of people viewing the apartment and their comments. Again, I would like to thank you and let you know I would recommend you highly to anyone. 



"Diligent and Professional"
 
Paul , Vancouver

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the diligent work and professional service you provided during the course of my recent purchase. The work you put into determining exactly what kind of property I was looking for and then finding it made the whole process a stress-free experience. I also appreciated your assistance in sourcing all of the necessary strata minutes and documentation that I required to make my final decision.

Your level of customer service and negotiation was exemplary and I would recommend you as an agent that looks after his clients and works towards finding them (the) best property at the best possible price.

In 2013 we decided to sell our home in the Dunbar area and move into Kitsilano.  We asked Paul Toffoli to help us as he had just helped our neighbour sell her house two doors up.  Paul along with his colleague Thomas Liaskas, was able to help us do that.  We found Paul and Thomas to be friendly and dependable and always available.  We were happy with our results and are now happily a year and a half into our new home.  We had specific plans for our purchase and are very happy with our new home and the opportunities it has brought us.  I will definitely call on Paul on the future should I again want to purchase or sell a property.
