I hope this note finds you well. I wanted to send you this message to say thank you again for helped me to sell my (and my late partner’s) home.|
I am in town from London and went by the house today and ran into my next door neighbour. He said – You sold at the right time! He explained that he put his house on the market 6 months after me and he just sold it, 14 months months later for 2.4m – 200,000 less than me. He said it has the same square footage living space but his lot is 50 per cent bigger than mine! He had wanted but was turned down by the city to enlarge the living big space – e.g. put in dormers in the attic and make it a living space too. But due to Heritage regulation ( his and mine houses being sister houses) – they can’t be changed on the outside unless both are done at the same time. So they turned him down. He said as people came round to see the house they realized there was no chance to renovate to increase the rental potential. Hence, one of the reasons the offers he kept receiving, including the final one was lower than he expected.
I miss the house but feel it was absolutely the right decision to sell it to support my Mom in a move to downtown. And I am very happy that you knew the right strategy of when and how to get the best price for it.
I will always be very thankful to you and the team.
Our recent experience of selling our family home with Doug Gibson and Team Kerr was fantastic. Doug is knowledgeable about the current real estate market and our neighbourhood in particular. We received excellent advise on how to stage our home and the Open House process was pain free. Doug was always available to answer our questions and put our minds at ease. Thanks Doug, it was a pleasure working with you!
For a city that conducts so much real estate business, its extremely hard to find a great realtor. So we were doubly glad that we were introduced to Chandra Levac who is an amazing realtor and exceeded all expectations. As first time home buyers, we were intimidated by the process but she did an incredible job to demystify it and help us understand every step of the way. She is knowledgeable, courteous, responsive, encouraging and honest; traits that are hard to possess in today’s competitive market. It’s almost impossible (I challenge you!) to find someone as both personable and professional as her, especially in this industry. We have certainly found in Chandra a realtor for life!
I would highly recommend Matt and his team at Team Kerr for all your real estate needs.
We are just about to celebrate our five year anniversary in the home Matt helped us find. It hasn’t just been a place to live, but a place that we have grown into with the addition of our daughters, and a community of neighbours that we have adopted. Matt really listened to our needs, coached us through the process and we had a lot of fun through the whole process.
It was also good to work with a team that cares about giving back as 10% of their profits are donated to great local organizations.
Best realtors in Vancouver!

Dear Team Kerr,
This is an unsolicited appreciation letter from a client of Shannon McNulty’s.
Shannon is not an ordinary realtor who just shows places, negotiates prices, and signs contracts. Shannon listens. She takes time to learn about our needs and interests. She also helps us to find the best investment opportunities. Shannon smiles. She becomes a family member who we can trust and rely on when we invest in Greater Vancouver. Her professional expertise, sincere advice, and great patience turned a tension purchase to a pleasant collaboration. Shannon cares. She follows up and responds to our phone calls after purchase. Shannon understands. She knows real estate is the biggest investment we make and she does her best to save as much as she can help us, from bargaining to introducing mortgage dealers and contractors best from the market. Shannon communicates. She is capable to talk to anyone from any culture and win respect and trust from them.
I won’t hesitate to recommend Shannon to anyone who plans to invest in real estate.
And this letter is our way to appreciate Shannon on Family Day (2018) because she’s a family member of ours.
Chandra Levac is by far the best realtor you will find in the Vancouver/Lower Mainland area. We were lucky enough to find Chandra through a referral from our mortgage broker and boy are we grateful we made the decision to pick her as our realtor. Just like others here have said, she is the simply best. THE BEST.
As first time home buyers we were already in over our heads, top it off with the craziness that is the Vancouver market. Chandra made the entire process pain free and taught us many things along the way. From the day we met her we instantly felt comfortable with her and knew we would be in great hands. She always had our interests in mind as her top priority and was able to find us the perfect place to call home fairly quickly into our search.
When any issues arose, she was there to squash them and even personally stepped in to help us out when on the last day a banking issue almost made the deal fall through – beyond words for how amazing she is.
If you are looking for a realtor and are on the fence – don’t be; go with Chandra or anyone else here and you won’t regret it. Pure professionals all around.
Matt and his team listed my Vancouver condo for me and made the process seamless and easy! I love how effective they were in marketing my listing using multiple platforms, including video and it was sold very quickly. I would ask Matt and Team Kerr to help me with my next purchase without a doubt.
Matt and his team are THE people you want to work with if you are selling or buying in Vancouver. I have worked with them for both transactions, and couldn’t have been more impressed with the team’s service. The whole experience was completely painless and easy for me! For the sale of my condo we got 10 offers after being listed for only a few days and the selling price was $100k over asking! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Team Kerr and will definitely continue to be a client for my next real estate transaction.
We recently had the wonderful opportunity to work with Chandra. We went into the process knowing little to nothing about buying a home, which can be incredibly tough in a market like Vancouver but Chandra made it easy for us every step of the way. I love her approach to not only helping educate you as the buyer about the details of buying a home but really tapping into what you are looking for, to help you find that perfect home. Each part of the process was so customized to what we desired in our next place and I couldn’t be happier with what we ended up with! I never felt forced or pushed into any decisions or processes as I did with some other realtors, which was a huge thing to my wife and I as we wanted to be super sure for our first home purchase. Also I cannot say enough how positive Chandra is throughout the entire process through thick and thin. It makes buying a home so much more enjoyable.
THANKS SO MUCH CHANDRA!!!! YOU ARE THE BESTTTTT!!!!!
Working with Chandra Levac has been a pleasure. She is simply the best. We’ve always felt comfortable with her, as she alleviated all our fears about buying property for the first time. She has been optimistic, competitive, strong, a reliable communicator, honest, trust worthy, and helpful from the beginning to end. We found our dream condo with her help within the budget we were seeking. We’ve had plenty of silly questions along the way, and Chandra has provided the best support and advice. My partner and I highly recommend her services! Thanks again, you’ve been wonderful 🙂
Ask for Chandra!
Matt of Team Nickerson sold my condo for me during Jan of 2016 and I can’t be more happy with the job he did for me! Matt got me the price I want for my place during a time when the market was not so hot and his team really made the process easy. I was completely taken care of.
Top notch. First class all the way. With Sayo’s leadership and great attitude this team is going right to the top. From what I know from Sayo is her amazing work ethic and integrity. She is the best at what she dose. I love this team because they are all about being green. They care about the neighbourhood and their city.
If you are looking for a dedicated Realtor I strongly suggest Sayo and her team. They care and will give you a 5 star service.
Sayo and her team are real-estate rock stars! I was traveling overseas during the sale of my property and I didn’t have a worry in the world, because her team of experts had every (and I mean everything) covered and handled. I love how they took the time to listen, to help me fine-tune what exactly I wanted as an ideal outcome, and to price it realistically so lots of people would come see the property. The sale was swift, I didn’t have to lift a finger, and Sayo and her team had all the answers to my questions. They also referred me to excellent lawyers, mortgage brokers and financial planners. You’re in the best hands for a life-time of real-estate advice.
Sayo Nickerson and her team of buyers agents and listing agents are amazing! They treat their clients with the utmost respect, help them through the process of buying and selling their home and look out for the clients best interest. They truly care about the success and well being of their clients, so much that their tagline is “real estate advice for life!” I am a client of theirs and have also referred my clients to their team. I have worked closely with Sayo Nickerson and her buyers agents Marg Howard and Matt Kerr on multiple occasions over the past few years and I am extremely happy with their level of service, performance and overall values/ethics of their company. They go above and beyond with their client services and give back to the community through local charities as well. Their team sold over 100 houses in 2014 and helped many clients buy new homes. I love the concept of dedicated buyers agents and listing agents as it allows them to focus on their clients needs and ensure they are well taken care of. I would 100% recommend Team Nickerson!
This team is remarkable. Sayo’s leadership and decision making are the spice to the key ingredients that are her team. You can literally count on any one of them who bring their personal expertise and flavour to the table. I have business experience with two different people on that team doing two different things at different times and it has worked out great every time. Buying, selling or seriously easy entry real estate investing — I can recommend Sayo and her team without hesitation.
I’m proud to say I’ve known Sayo since we bought our first condo back in 2003. She impressed us with her energy and knowledge back then and has gotten better and better as she’s grown her company while still making a positive contribution to the world.

I wanted to take a minute to thank you so much for all of your help in selling our Vancouver townhouse. It was the first time that we had been through a property sale, and we weren’t quite sure what to expect. However, you and your team made the whole process very smooth and painless! I really appreciated all of your efforts, expertise, helpful advice, sage wisdom, and regular communication. I felt that you and your whole team were behind us every step of the way and treated us as important and valued clients, not just “another sale”. And I mentioned this to you once before, but I’ll say it again now. I can’t tell you how much I appreciated your calm, focused, quietly-in-control personality. I really needed that through the chaos surrounding our international move! A huge thank-you to your team. It was a pleasure working with you. We would recommend you to anyone!
I highly recommend Sayo and her team (team Kerr) for their upbeat, positive attitude, high level of professionalism, knowledge and commitment. They are one of the hardest working team of individuals that I know; going far above and beyond the call of duty. Simply put – they get results. Would I use their services again? In a heartbeat – YES!
I wanted to say again a huge thank you with all your help over not only the last few weeks, but the last couple of years! As well as being delighted (and still a little in shock!) about the purchase price of our current home, we have been extremely impressed with the help and support you and your team have given us. From our very first meeting we felt as if we were in safe hands and you were able to answer all our questions and concerns promptly and efficiently. Every member of the team has been a pleasure to deal with and gone out their way to make life easy. Everything happened so fast and you were able to guide us through an unfamiliar process to make a stressful time much more bearable, particularly with the timing – us being away and having visitors here. I can’t believe we bought and sold a house in only 4 weeks!! We are very excited about our next move and will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone we speak to and I wish you and the team every success.
Thank you – that was almost too easy.
Team Nickerson I wanted to follow up after yesterday, I was all a bit overwhelmed with the process to say a proper thank you for all your savvy dealings. That last carefully worded twist at the end made a big difference; your experience really shone through. Many thanks for everything!
Team Nickerson Just wanted to say thank you! to you and your team for selling my place and all the work that went with it especially because I’m a non-resident! I’m definitely recommending you to my Van friends and if/when the time comes for me to buy a condo for myself, I’m calling you!
S & S Martin
Thank you for helping us sell our condo. Your team helped us reduce our stress around the sale and gave us space to make smart decisions. I recommend you to everyone I know! Thanks!
Sayo has helped me buy two condos – one in Kits and one in Richmond. She helped me through every step and made the whole process smooth and stress free. I got great deals on both places and have now seen a significant increase on the appraisals of both places. I have recommended Sayo to my family and friends and will continue to do so.
I’d like to thank Sayo and her fabulous team Kerr for their help selling my apartment in a very trying market. Always courteous, enthusiastic, empathetic and honest to the situation, they made whatever disappointment there was selling in a buyers market disappear. Not only did they put up with my sniping, they got it sold! All the best!
T. & V. Ly
Sayo, how can we ever thank you enough? Not only did you work tirelessly with us for months to find us the perfect home, you managed to always have a smile on your face. And you have so much knowledge and expertise about the market. Thanks for making the process so much easier! It was a pleasure working with you.
The real estate market is a competitive place for buyers. For months we laboured fruitlessly making several unsuccessful offers with many difference listings agents but had no luck. We were therefore, very pleased to meet Marg Howard who did a wonderful job for us as our buying agent. Marg is hard working, a great listener and observer. She provided us with daily updates, took us out on several occasions and we are happy to say that we were successful in purchasing a home right away. She provided us with wise advice and went above and beyond our expectations. Her passion is evident and refreshing and she truly loves her job. I only wish that we had met her sooner. I highly recommend her!

Thank you again for your professionalism in selling Lara’s condo – at a great price and so quickly! Lara is very happy! Your time and effort are much appreciated!
F. & J. Power
My husband and I were most impressed with the excellent services and advice provided by Team Kerr (Previously Team Nickerrson). The swift one day sale of our condo, plus the great price was remarkable and certainly deserves high recommendation for a job well done! Thank you!
J. Carter & D. Ranwell Sayo
My fiance and I arrived in Vancouver from England with our suitcases and our large shaggy dog in January 2006, and by March we had bought our dream home in the heart of the city. How did we achieve this so quickly in a challenging sellers market? The answer? by having friends with the right connections and the right connection in this context happened to be one of the city’s top realtors, a lovely smart young lady, Sayo Nickerson. (more…)
L. & R. McBurney
Sayo, you were recommended to us and we would certainly recommend you to our friends. Sayo, Christina & Wren, ‘what a team!’ Thank you for your experience and knowledge, helping us with every detail. We are so pleased how fast our home sold. Thank you so much!
T. & G. Hwang
My husband and I are most impressed by your services. Your prompt response to our requests & questions, and your great attention to our needs. Thanks again for the speedy sale of our house.
Sayo was extremely helpful, capable and knowledgeable when she helped me find “the apartment” I was looking for. In a very short period of time she had found the place I wanted. As well as demonstrating a high professionalism Sayo is a very sweet person to work with. Thank you Sayo and thank you Team Kerr – I highly recommend your services.
D. & A. Yanke
I bought and sold and had 3 days between completion and possession in a hot market. Sayo is the only person who could have taken all the angst about that off my shoulders. At the time, I didn’t even realize how much her competence averted many near-disasters as she took this upon herself and spared us the stress. Thanks Sayo and thanks team Kerr!
L. de Jesus
We would like to thank you again for putting up with us (me, rather!), an we’re really pleased with the outcome all in all. So thank goodness for the Real Estate magazine, I found you!
I have worked with Marg on 3 real estate transactions and I have found her knowledge and professionalism to be superb. Marg has top-notch negotiating skills and she likes to draw up offers and present them. She is a true people-person and she ensures that it is a great pleasure to work with her. Her goal is to assist her clients in finding the properties and homes that they want and this is communicated in all of her dealings. She values honesty highly and as a returning client, I have the utmost confidence in her. I have recommended her to friends and will continue to do so. I highly recommend Marg to assist you with your real estate purchase!
Due to the dedication and commitment of the Sayo Nickerson Real Estate team, I’m now living in the home of my dreams. I put myself in the hands of the Kerr team (previously Sayo Nickerson team) to find myself a new place to live and it was a totally awesome experience. Sayo and Wren came to see me and the two of them blew me away with their professionalism and enthusiasm. After spending some time with Wren looking at various properties, and after JD was able get me pre-approved for a mortgage, I was able to make a no subjects offer which was instantly accepted! Then came the task of selling my old condo, which Sayo sold to the first person who walked into the open house and for over the asking price! Amazing! Thank you, Kerr team and Sayo Nickerson!
I want to thank you (Team Kerr) and Sayo for your assistance, guidance and advice over the past week. Your teamwork, professionalism, sincerity and genuine impartial interest is most impressive and quite exemplary. While I congratulate myself for having your assistance, I think congratulations should also go to you for the excellent work done.
R. Woo and G. Stewart
Real estate transactions are stressful at the best of times. However, our house buying and selling experiences with Team Kerr (Sayo Nickerson) have been excellent. Sayo handled both real estate transactions with the utmost of professionalism and friendliness. Even in the most stressful moments, Sayo provided a sense of perspective and sanity. Of particular note is the case of the sale of our old house: Sayo’s presentation of the property was wonderful with very high-quality photos, accurate descriptions, and including a virtual tour that brought in lots of prospective buyers to view the property and which ultimately resulted in 5 offers, all well above the asking price.
I want to thank you and your whole team for your excellent support through the sale of my former home. Your calm and gracious competence and the generosity of Anne King in helping me to make the house look it’s best, all contributed to making what is normally a very stressful time, into the best experience it could be. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone selling their home and you can quote me on that!
Team Nickerson I’ve bought and sold 9 times now, but never before worked with a team with such a high level of caring and competence plus giving 10% back to the community! That’s commitment!

Hi Doug and Sayo,
We wanted to pass on our appreciation for the amazing job you did for us selling our home! From the moment we met you we felt like we were in the hands of confident, approachable professionals. You and your team kept us abreast of everything that was going on. Things happened so quickly and before we knew it our home was sold. We hardly had a chance to get to know you! (That is the only sad part.)
You managed to create a buzz around our listing which resulted in us being extremely happy (read “over the moon”) with the selling price. Having both of you at the table the evening the offers were being presented also showed us that you respected our wishes. We are so happy you two were with us to share our excitement!
Thanks. You can be sure we will be referring your services.
