Working with Danielle to purchase my first investment property has been a surprisingly pleasant and straight forward process. Danielle does a great job of explaining each step and helping along the way. Her experience and knowledge has given me confidence in knowing that I chose the right realtor for the job. Looking forward to working together in the future.
My husband and I are so glad we chose Danielle as our realtor. She is not only personable, kind and hardworking but she always has her clients best interest at heart. As everyone knows searching for a suitable home for your family is a stressful process filled with many emotions. As first time home buyers Danielle was able to walk us through the whole process from Beginning to end and we appreciate her thoroughness to detail and overall exceptional service. It was a delight working with Danielle on finding our 1st home and we recommend her to anyone out there looking for a home. We are truly thankful for her hard work in closing this sale on our behalf. Thank you again.

This was the first time working with Danielle on a real estate transaction and I am very happy that I did. Not only will I continue to work with her on future transactions I have already recommended her to other friends and colleagues.
Over the last few years I had worked with another realtor for several transactions however out of frustration I began looking for a new realtor when this person dropped the ball on several occasions. This included: 1) Not getting an EV parking spot in a building that had 50 EV ready spots in which I was the only owner with an EV at the time of move in and had been told by the developer that I would have no issue getting a spot at the time of purchase. However 4 years later at the time of closing the developer said that they had not received the request from my realtor in writing and they did not know that I had needed one. 2) On multiple occasions I had reached out regarding several presales and did not receive a reply until after the developments had sold out. 3) Finally the breaking point was when I had a listing expire on an assignment, which was only allowed to be listed for 90 days as per the contract with the developer, in which I had no offers and was willing to drop the price but every time I reached out to the realtor I was told the price was ok and then when I finally asked for the price to be dropped I did not hear back until the listing expired.
While this may sound like a review of the previous realtor I had to mention this because (timely) communication is very important to me, is one of the most important qualities I look for in a realtor, and definitely one of Danielle’s strong points.
Not only was Danielle prompt at replying to all my messages she was also a strong negotiator. When closing the presale she was able to: 1) Negotiate the developer down on the deposit 2) Extend the dates of the second deposit 3) Get an upgrade included for free which every other completion had to pay for 4) Was able to get me the building plans for the parkade so I could pick a spot that would accommodate a large electric truck And all this was after the selling realtor thought we were asking for too much!
Needless to say I was impressed with her service and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell.
We worked with Danielle on the purchase of our first home in Canada. Despite being unfamiliar with the process, Danielle walked us through each step clearly, explaining what needed to happen so that we felt in control throughout. Danielle made herself available to us, even on weekends and evenings, and she clearly has a passion for the job. She went above and beyond in terms of the support she provided to us, going way beyond just the search for a house. We could also trust Danielle to provide us with honest feedback on properties – if she didn’t think one was right for us she would say so. Throughout the whole process we felt Dani elle had our best interests at heart, there was never any pressure to move forward unless we were 100% comfortable. She’s also a pretty savvy negotiator – which doesn’t hurt in this line of work! Most importantly, Danielle took the time to truly understand our needs and found us a property that we are really excited about! We’d be very happy to recommend Danielle to anyone looking to buy a house.

As first time home buyers we had no idea what we were getting ourselves into when deciding to get a place of our own. Luckily we had Danielle as our real estate agent, she was so helpful in answering all of our questions day and night. Danielle always got back to us in a timely manner, if she didn’t have the answer she would go and find it, all of our questions were met with researched answers, whether the questions were strata, financial, neighborhood or commute related. Danielle helped us pick certain neighborhoods by going over the market and finding units that were going to not only suit our needs but also be a great investment, which helped us feel more confident in our decision to get into real estate. Danielle was so patient, understanding and beyond helpful when we just couldn’t find what we were looking for right away, she was always confident that the right one would come along.. and she was right! We found the perfect condo for us and our dog and we could not be happier. Danielle helped us decide what would be a fair offer and she used her amazing negotiating skills to get us our condo for a great price (plus a piece of the sellers artwork I was in love with!). Working with Danielle was the best decision we could have ever made when deciding to get into the real estate market and we will absolutely work with her again in the future.

I knew when I asked Danielle Roy to be our agent she would be putting my best interest in mind first. Before starting out on the project of buying a new place Danielle presented me scenarios of keeping my current property and renting vs. selling to see what we could afford to buy. Not many real estate agents would even consider telling a client to hold onto their current property. Only honest agents like Danielle would consider giving up a commission from a sale to make sure their clients are making the best investment decision. Danielle introduced me to a great mortgage broker who helped with pre-approval process. Eventually I made the decision to sell my current property so that my partner and I could buy something that fit our current and future requirements. Danielle, through her contacts and attention to us, found us a property to buy and negotiated a great deal that allowed us time to sell my current property. During the selling process Danielle guided me on how to price my condo to sell and how to compete against other condos selling in a slow market. Danielle went beyond my expectations, she helped me stage my condo, took professional photos and videos of my condo, held many open houses, private viewings, and investment tours. Danielle helped keep me focused on our goals to sell as the market was very slow and at times I was considered closing the whole process down. End of the day, Danielle sold my condo competing against many other units in the area, negotiate a good deal, and now we can focus on moving into our new home. My family has recently purchased a recreation property with Danielle and our plan is to work with her again for a future investment property. Thanks Danielle for all your help!!!

Danielle’s experience as a CPA and Real Estate Investor set her far above her competition. Her knowledge on tax implications and pitfalls were second to none. We spent time looking for just the right agent with the experience in the type of home we were looking for, specifically suited. Her investor experience gave weight to what we looked for in suited units and insuring an understanding in the Tenancy Act. Danielle has fantastic negotiation skills. We were pleased that she took the time to compare market values and trends, and was able to recommend prices that were consistent with the current trends. She was able to provide a realistic evaluation, balancing what both the buyer and seller wanted, and negotiate a compromise. We greatly appreciated her researching local by-laws and providing us with said research in regards to suites and zoning regulations. Her neighbourhood knowledge is fully on point and was able to narrow our search considerably. She is aware of upcoming projects that could impact our resale value and transit times for commuting for the upcoming year. Danielle maintained contact with us almost daily with updates and emails in regards to home search. She made herself available to discuss any issues or changes to our plans, which we did frequently as we didn’t have a full knowledge of what we were looking for initially. Danielle kept us informed throughout the entire process. She maintained contact with us when we were selling our home in the Okanagan through to the end of our purchase. We were very pleased when she maintained an open dialogue with the other agents of the houses we were looking in to, and even reached out to them to keep them engaged. Danielle helped with locating appraisers, inspectors, and a measuring company. She kept constant contact with them and coordinated a singular time for them to be at our new purchase to satisfy the contract conditions which minimized disruption to the sellers. To ensure that there were no delays she also remained in contact with the lawyers and financial institutions. This was a huge stress relief as the process seemed very overwhelming. Danielle’s professionalism was exceptional. She insured that she was on time for all meetings and promptly returned phone calls. Danielle had picked up my family and I to go around to the various showings. She had each home mapped out in order with their corresponding MLS number. She provided us with a printout in advance, which was a huge help in planning out our days. We highly recommend Danielle Roy as your Real Estate Agent!!

Danielle recently helped my husband and I purchase our first investment property and we can’t recommend her highly enough. She was very knowledgeable about the market and its potential, and made the whole process as smooth as possible. She quickly answered any questions that we had (and we had many…) and coached us through the entire transaction. Danielle’s excellent negotiation skills meant we got an awesome deal (with a lot of added extras) and her enthusiasm throughout the whole process illustrates how passionate she is about finding an investment property that’s right for you. Overall, we received a professional, proactive, responsive and friendly service and will definitely be recommending Danielle to our friends and family for their future real estate transactions.

Danielle was extremely helpful during the entire process of purchasing our new home. It was our first investment property purchase so she spent extra time going over every little detail with us. She was especially helpful when looking at each home, pointing out things I never would have noticed. It was so appreciated! She was professional, timely, and knowledgeable. I highly recommend Danielle!

Danielle did a lot of research for me when I was looking for an investment property with two suites. Great service and would use again.

Very knowledgeable and responsive! I reached out to Danielle inquiring about what the market forecast in Langley looks like for the next 3 years and she put together lots of great information, including a custom analysis that ultimately helped determine the long-term strategy for my first condo. Not only was this information accurate, it was shared in less than 24 hours. She is an expert – highly recommended!
