2020年3月10日，【星島日報】和【明報】当地两大中文報紙刊登全版彩業，以表彰加拿大西海岸最大地产集团Royal Pacific 的傑出地產經紀人！由于強劲的亚洲买家市场，怡富地产集团拥有众多的杰出华裔地产经纪！
My wife and I have been buying and selling real estate for many years and we have been worked with many real estate agents. We were hesitant when we first met Yvonne, but her professionalism soon impressed us. After Yvonne did one successful sell for us in 4 days, I was thrilled by her efficiency. Yvonne and her team were diligent in preparing my 95 year old house in Mackenzie Heights and showed it's best face in the promotion brochures. The result was amazing since it was sold above the asking in less than a week!
The second house Yvonne sold for us is even more dramatic. It was for my land value property in Kitsilano. There were a total of 5 offers competing for the property; however, I was not satisfied with any of them. After I turned down all of them, Yvonne sat down with me and sincerely asked me what price would make me happy. I wrote down my price on a blank offer. Yvonne asked me to allow her several hours to do the job. I was truly in doubt, but I decided to give it a try. To my surprise, about three hours later, Yvonne came back with a signed cash offer and a $130K deposit bank-draft in her hand! My wife and I were both overjoyed by the good news; we could hardly believe it was happening! Since then, we have our full confidence in Yvonne and her team’s capabilities, which have been proved once again in our most recent sell.
The market was evidently slowing down when we put our new house on the market due to the foreign 15% PTT (Property Transfer Tax) policy. However, Yvonne and her team were determined to do the best for us! Yvonne hired a professional staging company to make the empty house warm and inviting. Right after the first open house, we got an offer. Two weeks later, we had a firm deal and were very happy with the selling price!
We strongly recommend Yvonne and her Team’s service to anyone who is considering to sell their real estate properties!

We hired Yvonne and her team of realtors because she appeared to be very active in the Vancouver West market and particularly in our neighbourhood. Of the several professionals we had interviewed before listing our home, she stood out from the rest with her understanding of our target market, her engaging personality, and attention to detail.
Although the market conditions were beginning to deteriorate by the time we listed our property, Yvonne was able to quickly generate considerable interest with her contacts in the market, social media marketing, and buyers who were already working with her.
In the end, we sold our house in three weeks at a good price, and were able to achieve our goals from the sale and move on to the next stage of our lives. For Yvonne’s hard work and capability on our behalf, we will always be grateful and we will not hesitate to recommend her to others.

我和先生因为各种原因，需要在2018年5月出售在Richmond路边的一套7个房间的独立屋。我们找到了Yvonne。她知道情况后，第二天就登门拜访，以做课题研究的专业和细致，深刻分析了当下时局。 她明确告诉我们，2018年的独立屋市场是风雨飘摇的。但当时是初夏，人们对于夏天的来临，有人乐观，有人悲观，是最好的出手时机。并且量身定做了方案。我和先生即刻同意了这个方案。 因为我们明白这个方案里的含金量，其中有Yvonne20几年的专业知识、有熟练运用的社会学和心理学技巧、还有对时局的准确把握、更重要的是其中包含了她对自己客户一颗真诚的心。
在这样的努力下，我们当然顺利的买到了房子，但问题又来了。我和先生都不是新移民，在严格的贷款政策下，Yvonne为了让我们贷到更多款，有更多的现金可以作为他用，动用了自己人脉里所有资源，就是为了让我们找到最优的选项。 在这样的努力下，结果一定是完满的。 就是因为与Yvonne的合作，我们在两个月之中，完成了三件大事：高价卖出了一套房、合理的价格买进了一套房、并且拿到了2.75的贷款利率。 要知道这三件事中的任何一件，在2018年都是奇迹。

I have known Yvonne Lu for a long time, so when I came to list my 10 year old Yaletown apartment, I didn’t want to use Yvonne, since she was a friend of mine, and I thought it would be awkward to talk to a friend in a business-like way. Within 3 years, I had hired two agents sequentially, and listened to one agent’s suggestion to spent $10K to change the floor to hardwood flooring. The property still couldn’t be sold. The only price I ever received is an oral offer at $1.2 Million.
I was frustrated. One day, I finally brought Yvonne into my apartment for her opinion. To my surprise, Yvonne told me that she immediately knew what was wrong as she stepped into the room! I then learned that as a realtor, Yvonne not only has loads of experience since she was in real estate business way back in China, but she also has a background of oil painting, so she is sensitive to a space regarding whether it’s cold or inviting. I gave Yvonne the task of selling, hoping she can make a difference for me!
I went back to New York after I gave the key to Yvonne. One week later, I received photos from her through email. I was shocked to see those beautiful photos, couldn’t believe my eyes that this was my same old apartment! On the first day of Open House, I got an offer at $1,36M. Yvonne then helped me to negotiate the price to $1.428M! I was thrilled! Just for one week, for the same property, I got $228,000 more! ($1,428M -$1.2M) It was indeed a miracle to me! Now I have to say, Yvonne is not only a good friend, but she is also truly a good realtor! I would love to recommend Yvonne to anyone who is thinking of selling! She will be the person you can always trust, and she will fight with you, shoulder by shoulder, for your best interest!

From 2008 to 2015, during 8 years, I hired 3 agents to sell my townhouse in UBC. They listed my property for 6 times, but all of them just couldn’t get my property sold! All the agents told me that my property has one major problem: the cooking stove being installed in the center of the room, with a cooking range sucking the smoke from below, which most people don’t like.
In an open house in UBC in the spring of 2015, I met Yvonne and was impressed by how passionate she is about real estate. I told Yvonne that I had a property that no one could sell in 8 years, and I asked Yvonne if she had interest to help me to sell it. In only 10 days, Yvonne sold my UBC Townhouse! And with a very good price! Both my husband and I were very satisfied with Yvonne’s outstanding service!
I see why Yvonne can sell my property in such a short time. Yvonne is passionate about the property she is selling, and she knows how to find shining points of a property and selling them in a right way! I won’t hesitate to recommend Yvonne to anyone who needs to sell their properties. She can help them just like she helped me!

在2015年的一個房屋開放日，我遇到了Yvonne。 她對房地產銷售的那股熱情，使我印象非常深刻。 我忍不住問她是否有興趣賣我8年都沒賣掉的房子。 在短短10天，她就幫我成功賣掉了！還賣了一個非常好的價錢！我的先生和我高興壞了，對Yvonne高效的服務非常滿意！

After living in the same house for 30 years since we immigrated to Canada from Hong Kong, we finally planned to downsize our home and put our house for sale last year. But it wasn’t successful.
In the spring of 2020, my wife and I decided to interview agents again in the hope of finding a professional to help us to achieve the goal. Among the realtors interviewed, Yvonne’s integrity and selling strategies made a deep impression on us. We hired Yvonne.
At Yvonne’s suggestion, we prepared our house in its most presentable way …. to be honest, my house had never been so organized and neat. Yvonne then launched mass marketing campaigns for our house. Yvonne told us that the first 10 days would be very intensive in private showings, and she was right!
On the 10th day of the listing, we got 32 offers in total, pleasantly shocking us!
Working till midnight, Yvonne and her team helped us negotiate with all the offers until we got the best offer that we were satisfied with. Yvonne also negotiated terms in our favour that allowed us enough time to relocate our next home!
With Yvonne’s well planned strategy, our house was successfully sold in 11 days, just 4 days before Canada Covid-19 outbreak, with most houses having very limited showings after the social distancing rule applied. We feel very lucky to have Yvonne!
We would strongly recommend Yvonne and her team, truly!

My property in South Granville was listed for 6 months in a hot market season but could not get sold. I searched online and found Yvonne Lu, who is working on the westside. I wasn’t sure if she could sell the property, since the market had started to slow down. I decided to interview Yvonne and her team. When we first met, I was impressed by Yvonne’s wide reaching marketing tools and her deep connections with Asian communities! I gave Yvonne and her Team a 3 month listing period for the selling job. I found Yvonne to be very active and diligent in preparing the property as well as in the selling process! To my surprise, Yvonne and her Team sold my property in 10 days! And at a price that surpassed my expectations! I would strongly recommend Yvonne and her Team’s incredible service to anyone who needs help in their property selling!

I have worked with Yvonne twice in selling properties in Vancouver area and cannot say enough about her dedication, knowledge, industry savvy, and the great supporting team she has. Yvonne is fast in actions and responses. From the initial meeting, everything was made clear and great advice was given in relation to all aspects of sale.
I am extremely satisfied with the expertise, attentiveness, warmth and professionalism Yvonne put into this selling process and would strongly recommend Yvonne to anyone looking not just a great but exceptional realtor. On top of all, Yvonne is amazingly efficient and proactive in helping things run smoothly behind the scenes as well. Thank you Yvonne for making my experience so pleasant and extremely positive.

I immigrated to Canada nineteen years ago and lived in a townhome at the beginning. As my family grew, I realized that we needed a bigger place. However, it was not an easy task to sell our townhome and buy a new detached home at the same time. For one, as working parents, we didn’t have time to browse around to find a new home. Second, our income could barely keep up with Vancouver’s rising house price. But we are glad to have Yvonne as our realtor.
Things became easier, thanks to Yvonne’s help. Yvonne understood our needs and she tailored a perfect plan for us. She helped us find our new home which was the exact house we wanted: five bedrooms just fit our family, a large backyard for kids to run around, a quiet location, and a price within our budget. Most importantly, Yvonne’s excellent negotiation skills made a seamless transition for the sale of our townhome and the purchase of the new home. That was quite a financial relief for us.
Thank you Yvonne! We really appreciate your hard work!
