My husband and I decided to try Glen Murray after a referral, and we were glad we did! Glen was very thorough in the bargaining process of selling our condo. He was even more patient than we were! He took a lot of time and much effort in securing the best price he could get in such a challenging market. When I saw how he worked in our selling process, I really felt he is someone I could fully trust. If I could describe Glen in three words that come to mind, they would be honest, reliable, and trustworthy. I would really recommend Glen Murray to anyone looking for a realtor. You will be very glad you gave him a call.

Glen Murray Coldwell Banker Westburn Realty Buying a property is stressful. Buying a place when you have to sell first is twice the stress. Doing so when the market is down has both its pros and cons. This is the situation my wife Claire and I were in when we decided in the fall of 2008 to upgrade from our one bedroom to a townhome. Any realtor can sell a property in a hot sellers market. It takes someone really special when the market is down. Luckily we had Glen Murray to help us through the process. Glen was not only our realtor he was a partner in what turned out to be a 9 month journey of showings, viewings, more showings, more viewings, stacks of feature sheets, early morning phone calls, late night phone calls, 100's of emails, many faxes, excitement, disappointment, excitement finally ending with a great place we both enjoy. Throughout it all Glen has been patient, professional, knowledgeable about the market, a friend to our cats, a marriage counselor and available at all hours. It felt as though we were Glen’s only clients however I know he was busy helping others through the same journey. I only refer close friends to those I completely trust. Glen is one of those people and over this past summer he has found friends of ours a home to call their own. Again on behalf of Claire and myself thank you again for helping us find our new home. We couldn't have done it without you and we look forward to working with you in the future. Sincerely, Dr. Joehel Blanca Claire Foster Partner, Champlain Chiropractic Manager, Fairmont Waterfront

Hi Glen! My husband and I would like to say big THANK YOU for your services. Working with you was a pleasure. When we put our townhome on sale you kept open homes until it sold, above the asking price.Because of your great work, I asked you to help us with buying a house in Cloverdale. Even though that was out of area where you work, you agreed. Together we found a home. What I like about you is that you were allways available whenever I needed you. You went above and beyond your work duties. When we found out that we have a problem in our new home you took care of that too. Also thank you very much for paying for our move, that was very kind of you and for me was a big deal. Whitout any thinking I would like to use your services in the future again and I would recommend you to our family, friends and everybody else. You are #1 agent in real estate. Once again thank you very much. Sincerely, Milena Kalinic

Being a first time home buyer is a very scary prospect. I’ve bungee jumped and parachuted, and neither compared to the fear of jumping into Vancouver Real Estate. That is, until I started working with and trusting my home purchasing team of Glen Murray, Brad Tower, and Ellen Kreutz. Glen was and continues to be unbelievably patient with me. if you have ever bungee jumped or parachuted, you know that the instructors will teach you what you need to know, not once, but repeating the important stuff several times to make sure you understand. That's what Glen did with me. Setting me up to receive emails on new and current available properties that matched my wants and needs helped me to get a feel for the market. When I saw something I liked, I could mark it and Glen would check into it for me. Once I decided that I was finally ready to take the leap, Glen was quick to help me organize the visits. In a very tight market, we were able to visit three properties in one day. As I was inexperienced with the whole process, Glen asked the right questions for me. After a whim to visit fourth property on my own at the end of that day, I was confident enough to know what worked and what didn't work for me. As it turned out, that was the property that I felt was the best fit. Because bidding started that evening, Glen made sure that everything was arranged and he helped navigate me successfully through a stressful bidding war. I never felt like I was on my own because Glen was like that parachuting instructor strapped to your back, making sure that you are guided safely and confidently. In fact, even months after my purchase, he continues to help me out. I recently called him to ask for direction on a property question, and not only did he alleviate my concerns, but he even sent out a fix-it guy to take a took at no charge to me. Now, that is service! I would confidently refer anyone I know to use Glen for their real estate needs, not just because he is in my BNI group, but because he offers an outstanding commitment to provide the best in knowledge and service. Thank you Glen! Melissa

Testimonial for Glen Super service and super conscientious are words that describe Glen Murray. Last summer, Glen helped me buy a new home and sell my previous one, and working with him throughout this process was a pleasure. He advised me on renovations and personally helped me with some of the work…service that I never expect from a realtor but it was a service that Glen graciously provided. Glen made himself available at all times and was always ready to answer my questions. During the numerous Open House events on weekends and weekdays, Glen made all prospective buyers feel welcomed. Ultimately, he found the perfect buyer for my former home. I am very glad to recommend Glen Murray. He is truly the “uberrealtor”. Carrie Jung

Dear Glen, A friend of mine looking for a home asked me recently if I knew a good realtor, and it got me thinking of my experience with you when my wife and I bought our first home in March 2006. As I'm sure you recall Glen, this particular sale was unorthodox. I was commuting to my recently opened business in Vancouver from my Cloverdale apartment and it was taking its toll on the business and me. I needed to move immediately, but had no time to commit to the search and rested the home hunting burden on the shoulders of you and my wife. I would end up buying the condo without ever seeing it; and I tasked you to pick the perfect place for me to live without speaking to me first. And to add to your stress, my father-in-law, Kirk, wanted to be part of the investment but was leaving for a long trip in one week's time, which gave you about 4 days to find our place. We didn't need a realtor, we needed a superhero! But rather than scrambling for straws and piling every home available onto Elissa, you were attentive to the details she gave you. We wanted a spacious apartment with a smart layout, clean and new looking laminate floors, a deck to put a barbeque, available storage space, a full sized bathroom and bedroom, a responsible strata council, all in a quiet respectable area in Vancouver and all within our modest budget. Not only did you find us exactly what we wanted, including what I believe is the most beautiful view of Vancouver overlooking the False Creek area, but you found us a real gem in tight real estate market conditions where places like this are thought not to exist! I'll never forget my first time walking into the home I'd already bought. It took my breath away how much it really suited Elissa and I. You delivered on what we wanted, and we were pleased with your resourcefulness, professionalism and expertise of the Vancouver real estate market. So I want to thank you for finding Elissa and I a beautiful home to start our lives together. and yes, I did recommend you to my friend! Sincerely yours Kevin Ponte Express Personnel Services
