Below, you'll find information that will help you get to know me better - from awards and credentials I've achieved, to references from past clients.
I consider the satisfaction of my clients to be my greatest achievement, and take pride in my high volume of repeat business and referrals.
This is a letter of recommendation for our realtor, Ms. Jessie Heo.
As first-time homebuyers, my wife and I had no knowledge of the home-buying process and what to expect. Jessie guided us through the whold process from searching for a home to sealing the deal, and through all the little intricacies which in between.
Jessie is a realtor who really cares about her clients. She thoroughly researches every property that you are interested to let you know what hidden costs you may be facing in regards to the property you are purchasing, which the seller may be reluctant to divulge. Such things, especially in condo situations, include re-roofing, re-piping and the replacement of elevator systems - to name a few. Depending on the building's contingency fund, you may be surprised by an unforeseen strata levy upwards of $10,000 or more! That's not spare change for anyone.
Using her masterful negotiating skills, Jessie negotiated a price $15,000 below market value with the seller and a further $10,000 price reduction for the upcoming re-piping levy after the initial offer was accepted. Jessie helped us find the perfect home, in the perfect location, for below-market value price, in a hot market! What else can you possibly hope for??
As to her personality, Jessie listens carefully to your needs. She cares and wants you to find a home which will make you happy. She is very diligent in her research (she even read a 359-page strata booklet to find out every last piece of information about my building - therefore finding out about the upcoming special levy and using that to negotiate a lower price for us.)
Jessie also posesses a wealth of knowledge and contacts to help you with should you require it. Whether it be lawyers, bankers, mortgages specialists, mortgage brokers or renovators, Jessie can very likely point you in the right direction!
She never kept us waiting unnecessarily when we had questions, and always promptly replied to our texts or emails, whether we sent them at 9 in the morning or 10 at night.
Jessie is truly exceptional and we are blessed to have had the opportunity to have her as our realtor. We fully and without reservation, recommend her as a realtor and personally look forward to using her services again in the future.

My husband and I had the pleasure of getting to know Jessie Heo not only as clients but also building a relationship as a friend. Jessie is truly one of those individuals who is great in every way. She is kind, sincere, and a very compassionate person who really cares about those around her. Unlike most, she is continually positive, diligent and sincere.
The experience of selling our first home with Jessie were great as everything went extremely well. We really wanted to sell our unit to a buyer that would like to live in and enjoy the wonderful experiences as much we did. Throughout the process, Jessie listened to all of our concerns and finalized a great deal on our behalf which was beneficial to all parties. We were very happy with the Buyer, the price and quick process!
We can without hesitation, whole-heartedly recommend Jessie as a dedicated realtor to sell / buy any place. If we were to buy or sell again in this market, we would want her to working with us again!
Again, thank you so much, Jessie! We are so happy how everything turned out! Working with you was the right choice. You are just so amazing!!

It's been great pleasure working with Jessie. She is extremely knowledgeable of the Vancouver real estate market. She moved quickly to find new listings and secured viewing as early as possible.
As first-time home buyers, it can be very stressful and we were not sure what to expect. We had so many questions and she never failed to take time to educate us. We firmly believe it was Jessie's knowledge of the market and her patient guidance that helped us successfully purchase our home in a multiple offer situation. We were very confident using her and have already recommended her to several of our friends and will continue to do so.
Thank you Jessie. WE LOVE OUR HOME!!

It was my first time buying a house in Canada. I didn't know where or how to start finding a right home for me and my children. I didn't know any realtors I could trust even though there are so many agents working in Vancouver.
So, I just paid a visit to Macdonald Realty in my area one day and met Jessie there. After having explained to her what my budget is like and what my expectations are, she knew right away what kind of homes I would be interested in and found me a perfect condo in Wesbrook Village in UBC. She was very professional and reliable through the whole process. In fact, I feel like we became friends along the way. I love my new neighbourhood and my place!!
I am looking forward to working with you again!!
