Do not take chances, pick the right
Realtor and get professional advice
and expert protection.


When hiring a Realtor please always remember the 3 E's:

  • Experience
  • Education
  • Ethics

Every real estate agent must be loyal to his client and always act in the client's best interest according to the law, rules and regulations as well as the ethics code. 

Therefore, in most of Canada and particularly in British Columbia, Listing agents are prohibited by law to represent Sellers and Buyers in

the same transaction. This is another layer of Buyer protection. 

In other words, Sellers must be solely represented by a Listing agents whereas Buyers must be solely represented by a Buyers agent.

There are over 15,000 active Realtors in Greater Vancouver. However, there is just a tiny minority that has the experience from 35+ years as a Realtor and condominium developer and 1,000+ sold homes as Bernie has. Simply put, Buyers take advantage of Bernie's wealth of experience and the advice he provides to every client on a daily basis.
