Helen and I thank you for your excellent support during the sale of our house in Dunbar and subsequently finding us a suitable replacement townhouse at UBC. We appreciate how patient and thorough you were with us in explaining the ins and outs of the real estate markets and the suitable strategy and positioning of a property for sale. And you were every bit as thorough and patient in arranging for us to purchase the replacement property. Your explanations were full and thorough, and repeated where necessary. You led us into the necessary discussions and guided us to a full exploration of our alternatives, costs, potential advantages and drawbacks, but you made sure that we were the ones to make the core decisions. In the process we learned a lot about real estate and the current, local market, and we learned the parameters leading to the decisions that it was vital for us to make. In retrospect, I recognize that real estate is no place for a rank amateur, which is what Helen and I were before your help. The amateur invites economic damage if not represented by a competent and diligent professional. Thank you for your capable assistance, it made all the difference. Regards, John and Helen R Satisfied clients.

Tim Russell from RE/MAX Crest Realty Westside helped me successfully purchase an incredible downtown condo in foreclosure. Tim's strength is his expertise about the real estate market and his ability to close deals. Tim was patient, very flexible, and calm during the search and purchase process. He was very personable, competent and confident. Tim gave me great advice on what to offer in a very competitive market. Tim kept me up to date with the progress of the foreclosure and guided me through the quick and efficient purchase of an investment/revenue property. Tim definitely made the whole experience smooth and efficient. I have continued to use Tim as I search for other revenue properties. I have no hesitation in recommending him as an excellent real estate agent to anyone considering buying or selling a property.

I had a wonderful experience using Tim Russell as my realtor. When I decided to embark on purchasing my first home, I had no idea what to do or where to start. Tim made the process seem easy and took the time to educate me on the process of buying a home. Once we sat down and came up with a game plan, he quickly set to work to find the perfect home for me and did so in only two weeks!!!! Tim went above and beyond what was expected of him and even continued to do so after the purchase was complete. I can't thank Tim enough for the time and effort he spent making my first experience as easy as it was. I highly and confidently recommend Tim to anyone and would not hesitate to use him again.

We hired Tim to sell our Mother's house in Dunbar. He came to our initial meeting well-prepared and gave us lots of useful information about the current trends. We found him to be knowledgeable, personable, helpful, and most importantly, trustworthy. I know for certain that he put our interests above his own. His integrity is such an important quality in a real estate agent.

I find Tim Russell to be a friendly,considerate, and personable young man. He was instrumental in getting my family the best price and the quickest sale of my mother's house. He acted quickly to show us comparable prices in the neighborhood. He helped us set the right price for the house. He was always available to show the house and field offers. His main concern was to get the right price for the family. I have no hesitation in recommending him if you want the best realtor you can get.

Tim went above and beyond in selling our house. He took care of every minute detail making the selling process as comfortable as possible. His marketing techniques were extensive and immediately attracted multiple serious buyers. Our home sold for above asking in under two weeks!!

Looking for a lifestyle change my wife and I decided to put up our house for sale. We placed our house on the market in 2008. We went through a detailed market analysis with our realtor at the time, settled on a price but we did not receive a single offer. We cancelled the listing. Enter Tim Russell, October 2010. He sat with my wife and me and immediately inspired confidence. Tim had a game plan. He provided us with an in depth market analysis, gave us a solid foundation of information in which to base our house price on. Once we settled on a price Tim really kicked it into high gear. Tim, set up a viewing with prospective realtors whose clients search criteria matched our house. Tim set up an open house weekend, had it all arranged with the tenants. All the while my wife and I asked, “What do you need us to do?” Tim’s constant response was, “I’ll take care of it”. How many times have you heard someone say that and been sadly disappointed. Not this time! Tim kept us constantly informed of offers and gave us professional advice with absolutely no pressure. Our house was sold in a month and a half and above asking!! If you are reading this testimonial your search for a realtor is over. You have found one in Tim Russell.
