    We are delighted to offer this testimonial for John Ismay who was responsible for us finding our wonderful home a year ago. John presents an optimistic eager personality which we enjoyed very much as he showed us numerous properties in our market range. He was and still is a very genuine person who displayed the highest level of both personal and professional integrity in our interactions. He was always patient and well informed about market trends in our area. We are pleased to have this opportunity to offer our opinion and recommendation of his services.

    I would not hesitate for a second in recommending John as a realtor. He sold my condo in a tough market and got it within my asking price margin. He also found me my new place in the area I wanted and at the price I was willing to pay. He listened to my concerns, understood my want list, answered every question I had, communicated in a very timely manner, and went above and beyond when the market was not in our favour. He is a very professional, experienced and hard working realtor. You can’t go wrong with this guy!

    I have been incredibly fortunate to have John Ismay as my realtor. I have bought a house, sold a house and subsequently bought another house with John as my realtor. He has been very professional, gone above and beyond to assist me. He has also been incredibly patient as we house hunted and gave us some really good advise. I would highly recommend John as a realtor.

    The decision to move, and down-size while moving was difficult for us. Our appreciation for your ability to listen to the concerns, understand the needs and wants then deliver the perfect new address was outstanding. This was the second move in the Comox Valley for us, and again our experience with you as our agent has been exceptional. John you understood the timing, the budget, our requirements and removed all the stress. Thank you for making the transition so smooth, and yes enjoyable.

    Working with John Ismay was an absolute pleasure. It was so nice to go house hunting with someone who makes it a fun process. We appreciated John's sense of humour and really enjoyed his complany. John has a very trustful manner which helped us make difficult decisions at times. We would highly recommend John Ismay to anyone looking for a professional real estate agent in Delta.

  • Townhome Purchase in Ladner April 2010

    John was wonderful! He found exactly what we were looking for and at an amazing price! I frequently still look through the MLS listings and find NOTHING as perfect as we bought in our price range. John stopped us from making a foolish purchase, that we originally thought was PERFECT. I was so sad, but we are GRATEFUL. He found us a bigger place with a 100% better layout for me to run my piano business. He also found the place in record time. I would happily recommend John to everyone. We are currently in renovation chaos, but look forward each day to begin living and loving our first home. Thanks John,

  • Mr. R. P.

    Ladner Townhouse Purchase April 2010

    From my first encounter with John Ismay, I found him to be very courteous and helpful. As a first time buyer, I had a lot of questions and concerns, but John was very accomodating in providing answers for all of them. I will gladly recommend your selling team and in fact am looking for a similar property for my sister in Ladner.

  • Mrs. D.P.K.

  • M and J Brotherson

    Purchase and Sale of Homes in Ladner April 2010

    Dear John and Lu, Thank you so much for your services. We are enjoying our new home. We appreciated the excellent attention from John, including very quick responeses to phone calls and emails. With us having a busy schedule and young kids, John was very accomodating with respect to meetings, etc. and whil we kow he had lots of other things going on, we felt that we were a priority. Joh always had our interest in mind, which was evident in the sale of our home and purchase of a new home. His experience and knowledge was demonstrated by his proficiency in dealing with both the sale and purchase of our homes. We are truly grateful that John was quick to guide us our present home, instead of another one, which would not have been the best home for us. Other realtors may have felt that their job was done and not gone to this extra effort to ensure that we got the best house for us. We will certainly recommend the John and Lu Homeselling Team to anyone we know looking to buy and/or sell their home. Thanks, M and J Brotherson

Both times you hve made the whole process really quick and easy. This time it was one month from start to finish. As we were away from home for part of the process, you always kept in touch to let us know what was going on and when something needed to be done. We always pass on your name to friends and relatives as no one could do a better job. If we ever need a realtor's services again, it will be you we come to. Thanks again for all your help, we couldn't have done it without you. Sincerely A and S LaRose

    Thanks Alan Stier Nov 2007

    I had been looking for many months on my own for a suitable house to renovate. After discussing my endeavors with you, you suggested I meet with your buyer s agent Alan Stier. I found Alan to be extremely easy to work with, obliging, and helpful. I especially liked the fact that he kept in constant communication and kept me up to date on all new listings. I found Alan s pleasant nature and sense of humor enjoyable. I would definitely use Alan again and will list with The John and Lu Homeselling Team on completion of this renovation and on any purchases and sales in the future.

  • Mr and Mrs R. Mackenzie

    Ladner Buy and Sell June 2005

    When Shirley and I first considered selling our home and purchasing another in the South Delta area, we considered a few options for working with a realtor. Do we use family, someone a friend recommended or a name we recognized as being familiar with the area? We had narrowed our decision to two local realtors based on our perception of their abilities and our desire to not drag the process out. At the same time we were attending open houses to get a feel for potential purchases and areas we liked. Most realtors were polite, provided a fact sheet and not a whole lot else, we were free to view the home without a lot of input from the host realtor, and we just assumed this was standard practice. That changed when we attended an open house hosted by John, he immediately engaged us in conversation, listed the attributes of the home and area and explained how he could help us buy and sell. We left there very impressed with John's professionalism, courtesy and obvious desire to satisfy the needs of all of his clients, seller and purchaser. At this point we were definitely sold. John had indicated all the qualities his team brought to the table and in our opinion they were all met, despite some tears from Shirley, our home sold in record time. Al worked diligently to find us a home that met our needs and Andre was able to arrange financing in a matter of days. Going into this, we expected a somewhat painful experience, however your team has made this an enjoyable and stress free one, which was more than we could have imagined. I would highly recommend your team, and have already done so, to all of our friends and associates. Your virtual tours and full color ads have received great responses. Thank you again for all of your efforts.

    I would like to say that I found the team of John and Lu Ismay to be considerate, co-operative and willing to help me as a client with the buying of the property John showed me. They have been very willing to do whatever was necessary to smooth the path of buying and selling and to advise upon all the paperwork necessary. John has been very prompt in answering any call I have made to him with regards to the condominium I bought and I would recommend him as a real estate agent to anyone that I know, who needed one. I have great respect for his judgement and would not hesitate to call the John and Lu Ismay Team should I need an agent again. M. Maxwell March 3, 2005

  • C and H Leukefeld

    Dixon Place, Ladner

    Our experience with John and Lu was very positive. While we only dealt with Lu over the phone, she was quick to answer our calls and questions and pass information to John. John was also always prompt in returning our calls and also in getting answers to questions we had. John is to be commended for his patience and endurance--only he knows how long it took us to find a home! He was very considerate of our needs and finances and looked out for the best for us. It was important to him that we find the right house for us and for our lifestyle. We felt very comfortable trusting his advice and feel for the market. We appreciate John's integrity and work ethic and would not hesitate to highly recommend him. With sincere thanks, C. and H. Leukefeld March 3, 2005

    Thank you to Alan Stier

    Thank you so much for the service and commitment you have been able to provide to us in the last 5 months. We have been very impressed with Alan's wealth of knowledge of the Lower Mainland. He seemed to keep one step ahead -- because of this we believe we have found the house of our dreams! Alan was great with giving us updates on the market -- we especially liked receiving the updates from MLS via email. Also, when the market began to slow, Alan checked up with us regularly to let us know what was happening in the market. We have been impressed with your service from start to finish -- thank you again. Kind Regards, M and D Denney

He was professional at all levels of our real estate transactions, including negotiating, making us feel very comfortable throughout the purchase of our home.

Being a first-time buyer in Canada and in our special situation with Holland we thought it would be quite a challenge. We appreciate Alan's ability to make all the pieces fit together and being able to guide us in the right direction. Other than that, we have no further suggestions. Good work.

  • John and Cynthia Farmer

    Home Sold in 5 Days after Many Months on Market

    Dear John and Lu We would like to convey our thanks to you for your help in selling our home. Having had our home on the market for some time with another Realtor, we were very disheartened and disappointed with the whole scenario of selling a house. We were definitely a couple who were scared and disillusioned when we first met with you and in some part not willing to trust. You impressed us at our first meeting with your approach to the business at hand. Your motivation and firm grasp of the market from both a seller and buyers' point of view was exceptional. The numerous statistics which you shared with us for comparison and the tools you would utilize in advertising on the web were superior to others. When you subsequently sold our house in 5 days you proved to us that you stood by everything you had said. It was a pleasure working with you and we have no reservations in recommending the dynamic duo of John and Lu. Should we ever need a Realtor we hope you will be there for us. Yours truly, John Farmer and Cynthia Farmer

    Sold for 97.3% of the asking price

    Our home sold for 97.3% of the asking price after just 39 days. We were happy our home sold fast and for a great price and we were able to purchase our new home for a great price and co-ordinate the moving dates. Thanks John, Lu and Maxine and your entire team for a job well done throughout the entire process.

  • Bob & Marion

    Amazing Performance

    Dear John and Lu Just a quick thank you note for you're amazing performance during our selling and buying a new home. We were delighted with the fact that you negotiated a full price offer on our old home so quickly which allowed us to purchase our new home at an excellent price, which you also negotiated for us. Your referrals regarding movers, inspectors and finance were wonderful and we were delighted with the whole process. Unfortunately, we are extremely happy in our new home and will not be needing your services for some time! Thanks again.

  • Brian Gordon

    Delighted with the service and results

    After trying to sell our home unsuccessfully with another company we were delighted with the service and results provided by John and Lu. We were able to sell our home within 30 days of signing the listing with them, which was a huge relief as we were already living in Calgary. Thank you John and Lu for a job well done.

    More than I expected

    Dear John My husband and I were more than pleased with the exceptional service you gave us with our recent purchase of a new home. I am a hard person to please and your patience you showed while taking us around so many places was more than I expected. After a few days we found the place we wanted and you certainly negotiated so well on our behalf. Should we ever want to sell, John Ismay is the person we would call to handle the sale. Very sincerely

    Top Notch

    After looking on and off for over a year at various apartments in Tsawwassen with John, he found us our "dream apartment" and was able to negotiate a great price for us. We found his service and knowledge to be "top notch" and will certainly recommend John and Lu to our friends and family.

    Above and beyond the call of duty

    John and Lu - THANK YOU. Not only do we want to thank you for selling our home in 72 hours for close to 100% of our asking price but also for truly going above and beyond the call of duty to find us a new home when the first two properties we were interested in failed inspections. Your sensitivity to our urgency, responsiveness to our calls and emails, putting up with us, our daughter and dog are greatly appreciated. How you made us feel like we were your only clients is still a mystery to us. Thank you! We hope to not be in the market for a home for a long while but do promise to tell everyone about our positive experience AND will call you first if our needs change. Many thanks and please do keep in touch.

    efficiency, diligence and charming

    Dear John, Thank you for helping Desmond and I through the maze of first-time house buying. Your knowledge in this business has made a confusing and stressful process less painful. Applied to that know-how was efficiency, diligence and charming. I'm very sincere when I say, I would have no problem recommending your service to others, and you will be the first person I call when Dessie hits the jackpot. Best wishes

    Stress free home buying

    Dear John I must admit we were never really inclined to work with any particular Realtor, but this system you have was something that probably caused us to give you the most consideration. Every day we check our e-mail and there is your name and something usually new for us to read. We had the price, address, square footage and all the information we needed to be able to drive by and know whether or not to call you to book an appointment for viewing. It certainly took the stress out of looking for a new home. Thank you again, John, for all your help and we look forward to moving to our new home.

    Making our first buying experience so enjoyable.

    Dear John and Lu, Thank you so much for the dinner gift certificate! What a nice surprise! We actually didn't receive it until last week. It seems to have been held at our old apartment since July. Thank you as well for our SOLD photo and for making our first buying experience so enjoyable.

    they are the RE/MAX Dream Team!

    John and Lu made the experience of condo shopping a joy. Right from the beginning they identified what would work for me and what would not, and saved me a lot of time and disappointment. They understood my needs and selected condos that were completely suited to me. I am in my dream condo! I can't thank them enough for their professionalism, warmth and understanding in helping and guiding me. I am looking forward to down the road working with them again to buy my first house. I could not imagine working with anyone else!

  • Mike and Sue Moore

    Home sold 8 days after listing

    Mike and Sue Moore are a delightful couple with whom we have previously done business. Because of a lifestyle change they were looking for a bigger home. After a couple of weeks searching we found the ideal spot. We managed to sell their home within 8 days of listing and they were moved in 2 weeks later! Thanks Mike and Sue ( and the kids), you were great to work with and we wish you happiness in your new home.
