S. & S. Maine, August 2019
We met Lorna by chance during a visit to an open house. Her warm demeanour and quiet competence immediately endeared us to her, and we knew, quite quickly, that we wanted her to be our realtor. The feeling persisted throughout the entire experience ... Lorna always made us feel heard and informed, answering our phone calls and questions whenever we needed, and taking our opinions and requests into account. With Lorna, we felt like we were always in good hands.
P. & L. Cunliffe, September 2001.
"Lorna instilled a high level of confidence and demonstrated an extraordinary level of patience and attention to detail throughout our lengthy but ultimately successful search. Over the years we have worked with many realtors and can say, unequivocally, that Lorna is one of the very best. Her integrity, tenacity and unfailing commitment to her clients are unusual qualities in a highly competitive environment."
B. & Z. Koch, September 1995.
"In 1994, Lorna represented us in the purchase of our home. She spent time finding out what we wanted and a lot of time on research so that we did not waste time seeing properties that in the end would not have interested us. Lorna has since represented family members on the sale of properties with much success. One condominium was listed by another realtor for 9 months which Ms. Slimman re-listed and sold in a few weeks. Lorna is realistic and very accurate in determining current values of properties and is clearly in touch with the market."
A. Bunim & G. DuMoulin, March 2003.
"Throughout the time we spent together searching, you never failed to impress us with your knowledge of the real estate market and its many intricacies. As first time buyers, you were able to help us understand what we were going to be up against and what to expect every step of the way. Your high degree of professionalism and unwavering honesty will continue to make you shine in your field. We will be glad to recommend your services to our friends and neighbours."
R. Roesch & K. van der Woerde, March 2003.
"We were completely impressed with Lorna's level of professionalism, along with the time she took to advise us on details to take into consideration when entering the real estate market. Lorna's honesty and sensitivity to our concerns and interests were so remarkable, and we knew immediately that we wanted her to represent us. Lorna provided supportive and practical guidance in the process of purchasing our home, representing our best interests. We felt that Lorna was exceptionally thorough and attentive to our needs."
G. Dolman & V. Brandt, July 2002.
"Your attention and understanding of what we were looking for made our experience of purchasing an apartment enjoyable and fun. It was also very comforting to know that you were always available to answer our many questions. If not for your determination and perseverance we may not have found the home we have today. We will be happy to recommend you to anyone looking for a great realtor."
S. & A. Meister, November 2000.
"Looking for our new home was a period full of new experiences and emotions. We are lucky and thankful that we could share them with you. We are very impressed by your professionalism. The way you handled the whole situation made us feel so comfortable. Your loyalty, patience and kindness are very much esteemed by us."
A. White, May 1999.
"My condominium in Vancouver was sold recently with thanks to Lorna Slimman. She worked diligently to sell my place and it paid off. I found her to be very personable, courteous, sensitive, and has a great sense of humour. I have great praise for her and would certainly recommend her services to anyone seeking advice on real estate."
V. Kay & Z. Brown, May 2012
"...For our most recent sale, she thoroughly researched comparable properties in the neighbourhood to appraise our home as accurately and honestly as possible. Preparing to show our unit, she provided thoughtful advice and even loaned a few decor items to show it at its best. Finally, when we were considering offers, she helped us to understand our options and complete the sale. Lorna's dedication, professionalism and knowledge of the Vancouver housing market made her a real pleasure to work with both times. We recommend her highly!"
T. Arato & G. Papworth, June 2012
"... She has helped us both buy and sell several of our homes professionally and effectively. We trust her judgement and opinions with all aspects of the transactions. Lorna has always shown tremendous attention to detail. We have learned a lot about the real estate sales from Lorna and her success rates speak for themselves. We highly recommend Lorna Slimman as a realtor."
D. & G. Read, November 2012
"... We had decided to sell our Kits apartment over the summer and we chose Ms. Slimman to handle the listing and sale of the property. ... despite a poor market our unit sold very, very quickly. After discussion with her and the setting of a fair price (with which we fully agreed) we were amazed at the extent of Lorna's assistance from providing a detailed analysis of the relevant market, to give us very good "staging" advice, and developing a description of the property that had broad appeal and stimulated interest. ... As a result, we had two offers almost immediately. ... For us we believe we had the absolutely right realtor. We highly recommend Ms. Lorna Slimman to you for all of your real estate needs."
Dr. R. McMahon, December 2010
Over the past 30 years, I have been involved in approximately a dozen or so real estate transactions in the US and Canada. Without a doubt, the quality of the service and attention that I received from Lorna was the best by far. Lorna's expertise was evident throughout the entire spectrum of services that one hopes for when dealing with a Realtor: careful assessment and identification of properties appropriate for my price range, location, and housing style; prescreening of potential properties; availability for showing properties; invaluable advice and counsel concerning the pros and cons of a particular property; similarly invaluable advice concerning offer strategies; and excellent contacts with the many other professionals involved in closing a real estate deal. ... She struck just the right balance between sharing her vast knowledge of the Vancouver real estate market and making sure that a decision to pursue a particular property (or not) was my decision (and one that I was comfortable with).
