Testimonials

We wanted to take this opportunity to recognize and thank our amazing realtor Paul Rickman. This letter is well overdue but as we are finally settled in our home, we can now reflect on how we got here and truly appreciate the process. From the beginning Paul was professional and personable. His detailed report and honest discussion helped with the whole selling process. Having a small child and another one on the way, the buying and selling process seemed so daunting but Paul was there every step of the way, making things as easy as possible for us. We were able to find, buy and move into our new home in one seamless process, and are so thankful for that. There were times when we questioned if we were making the right choice and Paul would listen to our concerns and help put things into perspective. It's been 5 months since we moved into our home and we realized early on that we made the right choice. There is still much to be done but we see only good memories ahead and already feel rewarded in what we've accomplished so far. We're happy to call this house our home and thankful Paul helped get us here. We highly recommend Paul to anyone and everyone. He's as an excellent realtor and now friend. Sincerely, Sara & Jamie Lawson

To whom it may concern, Paul Rickman recently found a home for us. We owned a house at the time, were relatively satisfied in it and hadn't seriously entertained moving. Paul, however, walked through a new listing and considered it an excellent match for us. He was right. We decided to buy the house and commissioned Paul to act on our behalf. Paul did an excellent job throughout the process, his professionalism and transparent approach actually making it a pleasure. His extensive business experience shone through as he helped guide us through the negotiations that ultimately landed us our new home. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Paul or work with Paul again. In fact we did right away: we commissioned Paul immediately in the sale of our existing home, an exercise that worked out equally well! Yours sincerely, Eric Zaunscherb and Helen Lee

Re: 2663 Hardy Crescent North Vancouver, B.C. We recently retained Paul to assist us with the sale of our home when we were planning a move to the Island. Because we had already purchased a home there, we had specific requirements regarding a completion date, and Paul not only made sure we met these, he got us a full price offer even before our public open house. Aside from the obviously more than satisfactory result, we found Paul a delight to work with – he gave excellent advice but also listened to our input, and was extremely good-natured and responsive throughout. If you’re thinking of buying or selling a home, we highly recommend Paul. Gord & Lisa Parkes

To Whom It May Concern: This is a letter of recommendation for Paul Rickman. As potential buyers, we first met Paul at an Open House in a home that was previously ours. We immediately liked his personality and were impressed with his knowledge of the homes in the area. Almost immediately, Paul called with notice of a new listing that turned out to be what we were looking for. He was knowledgeable and very helpful in providing us, as buyers, with the needed information to make the offer. In addition, he was also very skillful at researching, negotiating and presenting logical evidence to the seller that our offer was a good one for his particular situation in that particular market. As sellers, we did not hesitate in giving Paul our listing even though we knew several other agents. We were certain of his knowledge of the area and knew him to be flexible, amiable, professional and diligent. We were confident he would sell our house at a good price in a buyers' market...and he did. We recommend Paul Rickman as a professional, courteous and expert real estate agent who meets his client’s needs. Sincerely yours, M & R Bath West Vancouver, B.C.

Beginning the search for your first home is a very exciting time but it can also be overwhelming without the right advice. From the start, Paul's expert community knowledge and unrelenting efforts to find us a place we would later call "home" was evident. Our goal to find the right place in the right location for the right price could not have been as easily achieved without the help from Paul. Within a short period of time we found what we were looking for and Paul walked us through each and every step along the way. Some of the things that impressed us the most about Paul was his excellent communication skills and his ability to answer every question or concern we had (no matter how big or small). Paul was always very accommodating and made himself available when we requested viewings or just simply to answer our phone calls and the many questions we had being first time buyers. Paul is an honest, hard working and knowledgeable Realtor and we would not hesitate to highly recommend him to our friends and family. -Philip and Catherine (recently new homeowners)

Attention: To Whom it May Concern Dear Sirs/Mesdames: Re: Paul Rickman, Realtor It is with great pleasure that I write to recommend the services of Paul Rickman. Paul was our realtor in the recent sale of our family home of thirteen years and the purchase of our new home. It was a challenging endeavour for us as we had absolutely no intention of selling our house and had, in fact, retained an architect to design extensive renovations to our old house. That all ended one morning when we saw the house we subsequently purchased four weeks later. Those four weeks were a whirlwind of frenetic activity which saw the preparation of our old house for sale, an open house, the successful sale of the old house within five days of listing and then the subsequent negotiations to purchase the house that ignited all of the activity in the first place. Paul was indispensable from the beginning to the end of those four weeks. From his expert advice as to what was required to prepare the old house for the market, to the successful sale of that house, to the negotiations for the successful purchase of our new home, Paul provided expert and, most importantly, objective guidance throughout. Paul’s professionalism, communication skills, and patience were exemplary. Moreover, I can say without hesitation that Paul was a pleasure to work with. Yours truly, Christopher E. Hirst ceh

The selling of my long time home was something I’ve considered many times over the years, and repeatedly hesitated at the sheer thought of it. For that reason it’s now with much relief and gratitude, after running across one of Paul’s for sale signs that I decided to make the call and proceed. Paul Rickman manages to efficiently cover every aspect of a complex sale with uncompromising calm and a warm sense of humor. He remained focused on a schedule we set at the beginning, helping with recommendations to other professionals when needed, while overseeing and ensuring that all the steps along the way proceeded smoothly. I was continually impressed with his prompt replies to emails and calls and with his exceptional communication skills between all parties concerned. Thanks to Paul’s sharp, perceptive knowledge of the market and a multilayered method for achieving an accurate selling price, my property sold very well and quickly to a great family. For such a daunting and emotional transaction, Paul’s confident, kind and empathic personality throughout each step of the way was a beacon of light in a stormy sea. It is with absolute certainty to say Paul Rickman is a first rate real estate agent. To future buyers or sellers searching for an agent to see them selves through a low pressure, successful sale; I fully recommend Paul to do the job and highly suggest meeting with him to judge for yourself, you’ll be thankful you made the call. Best Regards, Liz Calvin
