    I have nothing but good things to say about my Real Estate agent, Daryl Hoffman. First, he was completely involved and interested in the Selling and Buying of my home without ever been pushy or in my face. I never ever felt pressured by him.  To me, that is a very important quality in an agent. The most glowing compliment that I can give Daryl is to say that he goes so far above  and beyond the call of duty.  He is patient, kind and gives you as much of his time as you need.  He knows the market well and priced my townhouse correctly for the current market.  It sold right away and he spent a great deal of time finding a new home for me.   My daughter and also my brother-in-law have told me they want him as their real estate agent when the times comes for them to sell their homes. They met him on a few occasions and were very impressed. I would not hesitate to recommend Daryl to anyone.  He is just a very knowledgeable, pleasant person to deal with. Yvonne Whetstone

    Daryl made our home selling experience as painless as possible. He addressed our concerns promptly and explained the selling process clearly. If we had a question, he was right on it. Daryl’s knowledge and understanding of current market conditions informed the staging and presentation of our property to maximize the appeal of our property to multiple market segments. Not only did Daryl meet all our expectations of professionalism that would be required from any relator, Daryl is also a great guy who had patience, tried to reduce our anxiety as much as possible, and did so with good humour. We would highly recommend Daryl Hoffman to anyone requiring a professional real-estate agent. Frank and Sherry DiPuma

    We already had confidence in Daryl Hoffman as our realtor even before we met him because relatives of ours had been extremely satisfied with his services. That recommendation proved itself over and over again as Daryl guided us through the whole process of putting our house of 35 years on the market, selling it and then purchasing a condo that met our needs. Every step of the way Daryl remained a level-headed and calming influence and answered all of our questions as they came up. One thing we really appreciated was that he never sugar-coated what was happening, but was always honest with us. When things got complicated he would first explain things verbally and then confirm the details in email, so we knew exactly what was happening. During the sale of our house he exhibited his negotiating skills, getting us the best of four competing offers and he knew what we were looking for in the way of a new residence and found it for us. His partner Helen Grant stepped in and ably handled the purchase of our condo when Daryl took a much needed few days off with his family. Like our relatives before us, we too ended up  extremely satisfied. Thanks, Daryl. Peter and Valerie Wilson

    My wife and I recently bought a home with Daryl Hoffman of REMAX Crest Realty. We both work long hours, and Daryl was available any time and on short notice. His research was thorough, invaluable & timely. Daryl’s understanding of our wish list enabled us to act quickly when our dream home hit the market. He arranged an almost immediate viewing, and we knew it was the one. Throughout our entire home search, Daryl was very helpful every step of the way. He is well connected in the local real estate market and was able to refer us to qualified home inspectors, mortgage brokers and lawyers who guided us through the home-buying process. It’s now been several months and we couldn’t be happier with our purchase. Daryl still calls now & then to make sure things are going well with our new home. As long as we live in the lower mainland, we will never use any other realtor.

    As first time home buyers, we had little knowledge about buying property and didn’t know where to start. We met Daryl at an open house about a year ago and knew after meeting him that he would be the perfect realtor to help us in our property search. We definitely made the right choice with Daryl. From arranging property viewings on short notice to guiding us through multiple open houses every weekend, Daryl’s patience, professionalism, and personability have shone. Without Daryl’s dedication and flexibility we may not have been able to secure our dream home. Thank you, Daryl, for guiding us step-by-step through this process and finally finding the “perfect” home for our family

    Daryl Hoffman helped us purchase our first home. His knowledge, professionalism, dedication and tireless work ethic make Daryl an ideal choice if you are planning on purchasing your dream home.

    “8 1/2 months pregnant, and an unplanned move, we needed to buy a place fast! Daryl listened to our needs and showed us a variety of properties with a full spectrum of options within a matter of days. Always on the other end of the phone for questions and discussion, he lead us with kid gloves through the purchase of our first home. Daryl was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend him to my closest friends.”

    We recently listed our home for sale with Daryl and we cannot say enough positive things about the experience.

    Your research, neighborhood price analysis and recommendations made us feel 100% confident that we listed the property at the right time and price. Your recommendations for staging the home for prospective buyers saved us money and aided immensely in the sale. Your sales strategy worked just as planned and throughout the entire process you kept us up to date on everything.

    Daryl, you have certainly exceeded our expectations. We have and will continue to recommend you to our friends and family.

    Kudos to Daryl for helping me get thru my recent North Vancouver real estate transaction! His impressive knowledge of the Lower Lonsdale area, his patience in dealing with me, his willingness to work evenings & weekends to meet my timelines, his willingness to give 120% in tracking down any information requests I had, and his eagerness to make my happiness his primary objective combined to make him simply the very best realtor I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Not to mention his shrewd ability to get me the best for my dollar when I was finally ready to close on a deal.

    I feel that I’ve not only gained a new home over the past 5 months, but also a new friend.

    Many thanks to you Daryl!!

    We really appreciate your help with us finding our new home, so we’d like to share our experience with others.

    We recently bought our new home in North Vancouver with Daryl Hoffman. Actually, we met him more than a year ago in an open house. From then on, he kept us informed of the real estate search info and emailed us from time to time for our questions or just a general discussion. I think that’s why we finally chose him to be our realtor, and we are happy with our choice.

    For all the listings we were interested, he provided us with the necessary info and willing to track down other information we requested. He showed great patience in helping us find our new home, respected our choice and gave us lots of advice based on his good knowledge of the area and real estate market. Thanks to his lining up from 5:30 in the morning on the sale date of the new town house complex, we were the first ones to choose, and ended up buying the best location unit for that floor plan.

    For every home buyer, the home hunting process could be really tough, and we are happy to have Daryl to help us go through all these. We’ll definitely recommend him to our friends looking for new homes.

     Thanks a lot Daryl!

    Amanda and I consider ourselves extremely fortunate to have asked Daryl to represent us. As first-time home-buyers we knew that things could get off-track quickly with the wrong person leading us through the process. Daryl guided us through with utmost skill. Of course he had all the information we needed when we needed it. The advice he offered was balanced and realistic – and this helped us stay objective. But one thing that really impressed me was how Daryl examined each property we visited as though it was for himself and his own family. He caught things, both good and bad, that we wouldn’t have known to ask about. He took the time to go through strata minutes on his own and offered his opinion with sound reasoning. Very thorough. It’s clear that he wants us to happy with our purchase. Even after we took possession he’s been helpful with problem-solving some minor move-in issues. It’s been our experience that Daryl works hard on behalf of his clients. He pays attention to detail and he knows how to negotiate. We have no reservations in recommending Daryl to another buyer.

    We are pleased to provide a reference for Daryl Hoffman, the RE/MAX agent who facilitated the sale of our former home and purchase of our new home. We are more than satisfied with the excellent service Daryl provided.

    Three words provide good descriptors for Daryl: honesty, reliability and integrity. Throughout the selling and buying process Daryl provided us with detailed, up frontinformation regarding degree of interest on our home and how that might impact final selling price. This helped us make fact-based decisions during negotiations.

    Daryl was always available whenever needed. He met all deadlines and ensured that we met ours. That provided a level of comfort that all completion dates would be met, and they were. He was here on moving day to ensure that the transition would go smoothly and kept in touch after the move to make sure that we settled in comfortably.

    Throughout the selling and buying process, we never felt pressured to make decisions. We always felt that Daryl worked on our behalf. As an example, Daryl turned down a selling bonus to remove any potential conflict of interest.

    Daryl Hoffman worked as our realtor in North Vancouver for approximately two years. We were considering a major change in our living arrangements, so although we had very specific requirements, it was often difficult for us to articulate these to Daryl. One of Daryl’s major strengths is his ability to listen and evaluate several different views, always with a patient and easy-going manner. In addition to his on-going searches, which consistently turned up potential properties, we routinely asked him to look into other sites (usually outside our previously defined search parameters); he always, without hesitation or complaint, thoroughly and promptly followed up on these requests. He was always amenable to arranging showings for us, and was available, punctual and reliable. Although never pushy, Daryl showed a very determined, strategic and confident side when it came down to actual purchasing negotiations; he acted firmly and honestly and got us the best outcome we could have hoped for. Daryl Hoffman did a great job for us.

    We were referred to Daryl through our mortgage broker last fall. What a breath of fresh air! My wife and I were completely new to real estate and were looking to buy our first home in North Vancouver—a little daunting to say the least. Daryl provided us with a wealth of information on the buyer-agent-seller relationships and each of our roles, the housing market in the lower mainland, inspections and engineers reports, and the potential pitfalls of buying a home. Along the way he wanted to make sure we were always making informed decisions. We never once felt pressured or cornered into making a decision. He was extremely patient throughout our growth as home buyers, and when it came time to place an offer on the place we liked, we felt very confident that we had done our homework. We will never hesitate to refer Darryl to any potential home buyer! Thanks Daryl!”
