When choosing a real estate professional, review their history!

I would like to offer you some objective information about me. I'm very proud to share with you some references from past clients who have gone on to refer me to their friends and families. Call me today. I would love to add you to my list of satisfied and happy clients!

We recently had the pleasure of working with Carissa in both the purchase of our condo and the selling of our townhouse. On both occasions Carissa made us feel we were her only clients with her unwavering attention and warmness. Her professionalism and knowledge of the market are second to none. If ever we find ourselves to be in the market again to buy or sell we would certainly work with Carissa. Our experience has truly been a pleasurable and memorable one.

~Bobby and Vicky G.

My wife Michelle and I are very happy to report back to you that from the beginning to the end experience in selling our home with Carissa was a professional, enjoyable and successful experience and project. Our objectives were certainly met by achieving a good price and an ideal closing. It was all done with the undivided dedication and focus of your terrific Carissa. She certainly "made it happen". She was always available ( 24/7 ) to cater to our every need and requirement.

She is a valuable gem and asset to your organization. Well done and thank you.

Dear Bill,

I am writing this letter to you in regards to the service Carissa Siy gave to me in selling my parent's home (8751 Seafair Drive) in Richmond. My parents both passed away within the year, and being executor I was entrusted with the legalities surrounding the estate. Selling the family home was one of those responsibilities. I have never been involved in selling such an investment before, and Carissa very carefully walked me through the process step by step. She gave me just enough information to help me understand what was necessary at each level (she didn't overload my brain), what was coming up in the near future (what to prepare for), and was also able to help me understand the "big picture".

Carissa's knowledge of real estate, finances, human nature, personalities, and negotiation are incredible. She answered any question I had with ease, was very patient and kind, and helped me through a very challenging time. She was so aware of my fragile emotions at the time as well as knowing that I was brand new with this task: selling a family home that had been so recently lived in by my parents.

As you can tell, I have great regard for the manner in which Carissa conducts her business. Her appearance, tone of voice, her demeanour, and confidence set me at ease right away. I knew I was in good hands, and I knew that whatever transpired Carissa had my hopes, dreams, and wishes in mind. I was treated fairly and with respect from beginning to end.

Carissa also helped organize a painter to paint the interior of the house. This fellow was also a true craftsman, which indicated to me that Carissa's expectations of other professionals is of a high quality. Her connections with contractors and trades people are to be respected and regarded with trust.

Thank you for this opportunity to give you feedback on Carissa's work for me and on Carissa herself. Please contact me if you wish me to elaborate or add to my thoughts.

We would like to commend Carissa for her outstanding job in selling our Kitsilano home. We met Carissa at one of her open houses after our property in prime Kits had not been sold for almost two months. Jen was very much impressed by how Carissa represented her sellers. Soon Carissa became our new realtor. We are very happy to say that we made a good choice.

Carissa did a great job in presenting our property to potential buyers, from creating new ads in newspapers to putting our property onto her professionally done web site with an online virtual tour. Finally our home was sold close to our listing price.

Jen and I are very pleased with Carissa's patience, expertise, and professionalism during the sale of our home. We would highly recommend her to anyone who needs a realtor.

~Jen and Jay Z.

Many thanks for your patience and help with the purchase of our home - our first major investment in a completely new environment! Your professionalism and efficiency in responding to our queries, combined with your class and personal touch, are very much appreciated.

Dear Bill,

We are in the process of completing the purchase of our home in Shaughnessy with the help of one of your realtors, Carissa Siy. We are writing to you because we feel she deserves recognition for the way she has managed and continues to manage this transaction.

We have been genuinely impressed by the friendly and efficient manner in which Carissa has conducted the process of searching for and acquiring our property.

She has given us objective counsel on all aspects of purchasing a property in Vancouver - enough to give us the confidence to proceed with a significant purchase when our intention was to just do a recce!

We value Carissa's natural, personable manner. She's not pushy, but is confident and experienced enough to know when to be assertive. She represented our interests in a very professional and fair manner, and negotiated to both parties' satisfaction, what we believed was nearly a lost cause.

She is extremely efficient in responding to requests and implementing actions once agreed. We have conducted the bulk of this transaction by email from overseas and navigated the difficulties of time zones and complex communications between third parties with minimum fuss. This is the third overseas property transaction we've made and the most efficient by far so far.

She is clearly an accomplished woman, managing to balance the roles of wife, mother and realtor. We appreciate the real-person qualities she has and the honest way in which she appraises properties, areas, schools and life in general that are so important in finding a home.

She is an asset to MacDonald Realty - you must already know that.

Yours sincerely,

~Peter and Regina W.

More than a testimonial, this is an expression of gratitude to Carissa for the successful sale of my home in Shaughnessy Place II. Carissa has proven herself a personable and intelligent lady who is well versed in her profession. What I perceived to be a nightmare turned out to be a wonderful experience and I attribute this to Carissa's reassuring hands-on attitude, calm demeanor, and positive outlook. My home was purchased for more than the asking price within a short time span.

~Serena G.

We have been very happy with the superb service Carissa has given us over the past few months. Not only is she very efficient, she is also very caring from a professional point of view. She always thinks for her clients and is not biased at all. She looks out for her client's best interest which I think is a very important trait to have in the industry. She managed to sell both my properties in no time! She always calls back very promptly and if something cannot be done, she makes an effort to update me with what is going on.

I would highly recommend her to my family and friends should they ever need to sell their house.

~Ching Hui L.

We commend Carissa for her outstanding job in selling our home and finding us a new one in record time. Carissa is personable and friendly yet very professional in her dealings. I will continue to recommend Carissa to my friends and family and wish her well.

~Amaya C.

We would like to commend Carissa Siy for her high level of professionalism in selling our previous home at 303-8300 Bennett Road in Richmond. She is a competent, conscientious, honest and a sincere realtor. She is a delight to work with. Carissa has made significant and valuable recommendations which led to a successful sale. We look forward to working with her again as our realtor in the future.

My wife Hersy and I are extremely pleased with her patience and expertise in handling the clients during sale of our condo. We will not hesitate to recommend her to all our friends and relatives that may be requiring the services of a realtor in the future.

~Beng Tek Y.

Your professionalism and dedication to your clients is first class. They are assured of exceptional quality in the service they receive.

It’s really an amazing feeling when everything seems to just go your way and your dreams come into fruition. I want to extend my full gratitude and appreciation to Rafi Siy! As a first time home buyer I was a little overwhelmed and quite frankly a little scared of the whole process but Rafi did an amazing job in answering all of my questions and guiding me through to completion. He was quick, efficient, patient and best of all it’s like working with a great and honest friend. Easy to communicate with and trustworthy.

I will definitely recommend Rafi to my friends and family.

Thank you so much!

~ Sel O.

Rafi is such a joy to be with on our home buying journey. He brings the warmth, friendliness, and young vibe into the process. He may be young but don't let that fool you because his judgment and knowledge on real estate are really on point. It's such a blessing to work with someone and at the same time have that person also be your friend.
