There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.
That said, in my experience as a Fraser Valley real estate professional since July 2010, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business. In addition, I've found that the latest technologies are enabling me to do everything I've always done, only much more quickly and efficiently. They've also helped me to extend the range of services I provide to my clients.
So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in the Fraser Valley areas, please
John Ryan is a realtor with a heart! From the first time we met with John, he knew what we needed to do to sell the house and worked closely with us to prepare the house for sale. He helped us choose new flooring and paint colour, put us is touch with professionals who gave us deals on upgrading the house, and met with us regularly to give us updates and advice. When obstacles arose, John was always there to help us navigate around them. Thanks to John, we were able to sell the house in a reasonable time frame for the market value of the house. On the day of the sale, he was with us every step of the way, giving us the emotional and practical support we needed. John was also an invaluable resource in helping us find the home of our dreams. He was always on the lookout for a house that would not only meet our family’s practical needs, but also our hopes for the future. John spent a great deal of time walking through homes with us, explaining the pros and cons of buying each one, and guiding us through the complex process of purchasing a home. He was an expert negotiator who always had our best interests in mind. John is our realtor for life. He truly is a realtor with a heart!

December 6, 2010 Dear John, We are writing to extend our heartfelt gratitude to you for helping us buy the perfect home for our family. As you know, we felt nervous about finding a realtor to represent us. We were worried that we might be pressured into buying the wrong home. But you proved us wrong. You showed the perfect balance between encouragement and respect. You even risked losing a sale to save us from paying to much for our home. And in the end you got us the home and saved us $35,000! You are the perfect buyer's realtor. We are so grateful you were placed in our path at just the right time. Sincerely, Keyvan and Juliet Rahbar, Langley BC
