I was introduced to Tim Wray through a co-worker in October 2018. Part of her recommendation was how nice he is; she did not mention how thorough and professional he is. We did not begin looking for a place until October 2019, I purchased in early March, closing day was the 31st. This was my first time buying a property with a realtor. My former home was a private sale within my family.
I had no experience, or really knowledge, of stratas, the laws they're governed by, or the power they ought to have in regards to keeping the property in good condition. Tim was so very helpful and knowledgeable every step of the way. He informed me about things, like depreciation reports, or the lack of any reports, so that I was better informed in deciding when, or when not to make offers. The current covid crisis made the last week or two before completion a bit challenging, but Tim came up with creative ways to make it all work smoothly.
Tim's demeanour was always pleasant. I don't know how much trouble average clients are, but I do feel we looked at a lot of places! In the end the suite I bought is the best of the bunch. What I got for the money I spent is better than I'd anticipated. Tim also provided me with other helpful professional contacts. Mortgage brokers, house inspectors, plumbers, general contractors: everyone I'll need to make my suite mine. I will not hesitate to consider Tim my realtor even though I see no need for one for years to come. When I speak of my condo purchase, I will always mention Tim with respectful fondness.

Tim genuinely puts his clients' best interest as the top priority. As the seller's agent, he successfully sold our apartment in a slow market by diligently running many open houses, and responding to inquiries quickly and professionally. As the buyer's agent, he provides useful analytics, and is always knowledgeable, courteous and easy to talk to. He is also very resourceful that he connected us to many good contractors, cleaners, interior designers, etc. We would recommend Tim highly to anyone who's looking to buy or sell their properties.

For our first home purchase, Tim was fantastic at walking us through the process, educating us on all of the various ins and outs of the market and regulations. His patience to answer all of our questions, sometimes multiple times, was greatly appreciated. Moreover, Tim made the effort to view some properties with us multiple times on different days, and was always quick to answer a call, text or email. During the offer and negotiation process, he was incredibly supportive in guiding us through composing an offer, and worked tirelessly for a whole day between us and the listing agent through counteroffers making sure we didn't feel pressured, but also helping us to not lose precious time.
He took the time to educate us on the market, home inspections, all things involving strata corporations and home insurance, including reading and understanding by-laws. He was also happy to help us understand how real estate transactions work, both financially and legally. In addition, he is well connected to various professionals in relevant fields and was able to recommend home inspectors, lawyers and movers, of which we were able to use and got great service from.
We would be very happy to work with Tim again when it comes time for us to buy again, and we're sure he would bring the same diligence, dedication and care to supporting us in selling as well.

Tim was really helpful throughout my search for a home and was always quick to send along answers to my questions, whether they were about the properties I was viewing or the process of buying.

Tim is both kind/personable AND extremely professional/knowledgeable. He is readily available for advice and to answer questions, and he prepared us well for a multiple offer situation. With Tim's guidance, we successfully purchased our home despite not offering as high a price as one of the other interested buyers! We're very pleased with Tim's service, and we'd recommend him to our friends and family.

Tim was with us every step of the way in buying our first home. He always explained all the details in a concise manner and is very thorough and detail orientated. We had a great time viewing different properties and trying to narrow down the perfect one for us. When it came time to make an offer, Tim was there straight away, no matter the distance he had to travel or time of the night. Tim's years of experience came thru at the negotiation point and we benefited from the outcome.
We love how he always tried to make our 2 year old feel important in the process.
Thank you Tim for being apart of our lives and helping us get the home we deserve!

Tim came highly recommended to me by a friend and I am so thankful for that advice! From the first moment I spoke with Tim, I was impressed with his knowledge and professionalism. He took the time to fully understand what I was looking for in a new home, and helped me every step of the way.

I am so lucky to have worked with him.

If you want exceptional quality service and expertise in today’s hot real estate market then look no further than this fine Englishman, Tim Wray. Undoubtedly, the market can be overwhelming to navigate especially as a first-time home buyer. Tim’s expertise and professionalism allowed me to feel comfortable and confident in the process. It took time finding someone like Tim since he is like no other realtor or professional out there due to his genuine commitment to creating a positive experience for his clients. His authentic nature made him a pleasure to work with and he was attentive to any concerns posed by myself or family members. My senior parents are very fond of him. He also has connections and can refer you to great mortgage and insurance brokers, tradesman and contractors.
This week I took possession of my property and not only do I feel like I have found a one of a kind realtor for life that I will refer to family, friends and colleagues but a person I actually like as a friend! If, like me you are particular, want to do business with great people and receive excellent client services, then I recommend you call him. He met and surpassed every expectation I had, making this a very special experience for me. I am excited for my new life in my new place!

Working with Tim to find my first Vancouver home was an exceptional experience. He took the time to explain all aspects of the process with me, from providing me a broad overview of the Vancouver real estate market to a detailed explanation of the various forms and contracts.
Tim spent time to understand what I was looking for and helped me find a home that met my goals. The only surprise working with Tim was how easy and simple it all was. Thanks Tim!

My wife and I, visiting from Toronto, only had a few days in Vancouver to view properties. Tim was a tremendous help to us at every step of the way. His friendly, personable and professional manner made us immediately feel very comfortable with him from the start. Having Tim at our side, with his immense knowledge and experience of the real estate market and purchasing process, gave us the confidence we needed to make this life changing decision.
Before our visit, he worked hard to understand our needs, while offering helpful suggestions and educating us on Vancouver’s neighbourhoods and real estate market. He developed a well organized plan of viewings, maximizing our time together, while dedicating as much of his time as we needed.
As a result of his great realtor skills, he was able to help us purchase our dream home in a matter of a couple of days while negotiating a deal that was better than we could have imagined. He never pressured us into a decision but ensured that we always thought of the pros and cons of each property in order to help us make the best decision possible.
You can see that he really cares for his clients and only wants the best for them. Even after the closing, Tim stayed in touch with us to ensure we were happy with our new home, still offering to help in any way, and enjoying Vancouver. We are so happy that we met Tim and now consider him a good friend and neighbour.

I contacted Tim in order to sell my condo in Vancouver and to purchase a home in Burnaby.
Due to Tim’s diligence this task was very successfully accomplished and I am totally thrilled with the outcome. The sale of my home realized a price $41,000 higher than an estimate of a competitor.
Tim was very patient in showing me many homes in Burnaby before finding my ideal property and he was totally available at all times to answer any of my questions or concerns.Altogether I found Tim to be a very pleasant, polite and friendly person and an astute and knowledgeable realtor and I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone contemplating entering the real estate market.
