What clients are saying...

Seller of 605-1500 Ostler Court

Daryl was great to work with. He was concise and managed all the small details for us. Kept us up to date on everything to do with the sale of our home. I'd definitely recommend him.

Seller of 503-1500 Ostler Court

Daryl really had a good feel for the market. Very straight forward and thorough.  Made sure all the little details were taken care of. Would definitely recommend and use again.

Seller of 3178 Mountain Highway

Daryl Hoffman came very highly recommended to me and he somehow was able to surpass all my friend's superlatives. He made an extremely difficult estate sale manageable and the property sold within a couple of days. I can only reiterate what my friend said about Daryl: I would never consider using any other real estate agent but Daryl, a kind, considerate, highly professional man and the hardest working person I know.

S. Padovan

Daryl was quick, efficient and well informed. We dealt with Daryl exclusively and did not have to deal with any assistant(s). Being able to deal with only one person on all aspects of listing and selling makes for a better more personalized experience. He always had an answer to our question right away. I especially liked how he shared his spreadsheets with information of recent listing and sales. This made us well informed and helped us in setting an appropriate listing price and accepting a better than expected offer within 6 days of putting the house on the market. Daryl gets top marks and I highly recommend him.

L. Watson and JP. Cardinal

Daryl helped us navigate a difficult market and purchase a home in North Vancouver. He was professional in every way, his advice and counsel was invaluable. We would highly recommend Daryl.

B. DeGeer

When I started looking for a new place, I had concerns about how competitive the process was supposed to be, and how often people can lose out on properties. My condo purchase could not have been easier. Daryl’s high level of professionalism and attention to every detail meant I had all the information I needed and was prepared to make my decision with total confidence. In the end I have exactly the apartment I first saw and wanted, in a great location, and with virtually zero stress throughout the process. Daryl is totally plugged into the North Shore market, and you could not find a more energetic and diligent realtor when it comes to making the move ahead to a new home.

J. & M. Keegan

Daryl recently represented us in the sale of our North Vancouver townhouse. We had never met him before but he came to us recommended by several friends whom he had previously represented. We could not have asked for more from a realtor – he is a consummate professional who pays great attention to detail and at all times we felt fully confident that he was acting in our best interests. His market knowledge is exceptionally good and he is a very hard and diligent worker. In summary, Daryl gets a well deserved 5 star rating and we would strongly recommend him to anybody looking to buy or sell a property in his service area.

J. McKibbon

Daryl is the best real estate agent I have worked with in 30 years. His knowledge of the market, professionalism, and negotiation skills are top notch. He really cares about his client and goes above and beyond.

E. Hou and D. Cartier

Daryl helped us sell two properties and buy our new home. He gave a fair assessment on the value of our home, which exceeded our expectations, by his knowledge of how the market was moving and how our place compared to the average. As a result, we sold for well over asking. This was in part due to Daryl’s ability to strategize what would be best in our situation. We always felt like he had our best interests in mind. Daryl was super patient with us and our process and he always made us feel like we were his only clients all the time, even though we knew he was very busy. When he was with us, he gave us full attention. He is also very detail oriented and always followed through with documentation, data, etc. He remembers all the details in our process and was great at reminding us of what needed to be done. If only all agents were this great, it would change the reputation of the industry completely. We could not recommend anyone more highly.

D. Schmidt

In my opinion, Daryl is an outstanding agent and was a real pleasure to work with. I found him to be very patient, trustworthy, understanding and knowledgeable. He was always available for any questions and very quick to respond. I can’t thank Daryl enough for all the help, and strongly recommend his services without any hesitation.

A. Sadler and A. Garcia

In writing this review, we are asked to be truthful, practical and objective. When we began the process of selling our home we didn’t have an agent to represent us. We met Mr. Hoffman at an open house and were immediately aware that we were speaking with a professional who cared deeply about his clients. We did not purchase the apartment he was selling but his knowledge, professionalism and sincerity won us over. When we actually did take the leap to sell our home we contacted Daryl and chose him to represent us in the selling process. We cannot recommend him highly enough. Recommending someone is a risky business because people tend to let you down but not in this case. Daryl was there every step of the way, explaining and being on top of things, giving us tips, communicating every detail, totally involved and engaged ON BEHALF OF US. There are many real estate agents out there and it can be difficult to decide which one to choose. I can only say that we have NO regrets. Let’s face it, we live in a city where real estate is big business and some people take this almost as a game or a challenge. NOT DARYL. This is your property and HE IS ON THE CLIENT’s side. Our house sold in record time at a very agreeable price and the process was quite smooth. Having had the privilege of working with Daryl with the sale of our home and were we to do this again…. no hesitation, we would dial 778-833-4633 and hear the familiar friendly words: “Daryl Hoffman speaking. How may I help you?”

W. Orvig

I was helping a seller with special needs and Daryl was recommended to me. From the onset, Daryl clearly understood the sensitivity required and made arrangements to sell the home as quickly and unobtrusively as possible, while still keeping value for the homeowner in mind. He went above and beyond in this situation to accommodate the needs of the seller and found him a suitable and permanent new home. I cannot thank him enough for his services, empathy and thorough attention to details.

B. & C. Roitberg

Daryl Hoffman was a perfect choice for us when buying a duplex & selling our condo, especially during Covid-19. He helped us feel very comfortable moving forward during this uncertain time with well thought out safety procedures in place. We felt supported with preparing our condo to sell, with access to the skills of his stylist and his support in pricing and showing our home. Daryl is always prompt in communicating information that is clear & easily understood. We feel we can trust his judgment from the start to the successful finish of this new chapter in our life!

J. Saugestad

Daryl was very knowledgeable and excellent at all aspects of the selling process. He was very professional and respected the seller’s concerns. During COVID, he always wore a mask and gloves. I wasn’t in attendance for showings but I was confident that Daryl would follow procedure to protect my safety. During my home inspection, Daryl asked for permission to be present so he could oversee COVID procedure. If you want the B E S T. I recommend D A R Y L H O F F M A N !

L. Valtuille

Daryl was referred to me by a friend. Me and my family were moving to Vancouver for work and we needed someone to help us with our very specific needs: we had to see many properties in a small amount of time as we are a busy family with a busier work schedule. Daryl was outstanding in every way; thanks to him we were able make the best use of our time and find a new place to call home. Highly recommended as he’s both a knowledgeable and approachable realtor

J. Li

Daryl is very knowledgeable, patient, caring and responsible. He always responds to inquiries promptly and provides professional advice. The experience of working with him as been smooth and pleasant. I would certainly recommend him.

C. Randa

Really appreciated how promptly and effectively Daryl communicated with us throughout the process. We also appreciated the time with the stager and the furniture he loaned us for staging.  Nothing about our experience with you was less than great! It was a challenging time for our family and you got us through the process quickly and kept us in the loop all the way. So glad to put it behind us with your help.

K. Chiasson

Daryl has been extremely helpful with the buying and selling of our properties. He did his research and always came prepared for meetings. Would definitely recommend to others.

I. & S. Gal

It was such a pleasure dealing with Daryl Hoffman, he is knowledgeable, professional yet personal and very helpful. He is reachable after the sale of property was completed and we very much appreciate that.

P. & R. Itterman

We would highly recommend Daryl. His knowledge of our area and complex was outstanding. He is very professional and was always there to support us.

M. Kum & J. Krantz

Daryl is very helpful and resourceful. Bend over backwards to accommodate us. Went above and beyond his services. He found us what we want. Highly recommended.

W. & J. London

You could ask for a better real estate agent, but you won’t find one. Daryl is professional, dependable, courteous and successful. Our condo sold within 2 weeks at full list after an unsuccessful 6 month listing with another agency. Highly recommended.

A. Shackleford

I have bought and sold numerous properties over the years, and without a doubt, Daryl is the best agent I have encountered. He provides service well beyond expectations.

From our first meeting, it was evident that Daryl was professional, honest and very knowledgeable, and as well, just a genuinely nice person. He knew all the properties in the area in which I was looking, he set me up to receive auto listings as they became available, and his communication skills were exceptional. He kept me apprised of the housing market and price fluctuations, and never once insisted on showing me homes out of my price range, unless I requested same.

When it came to purchasing a property, Daryl walked me through every step of the process to ensure I was well informed. His negotiation skills were excellent, and by trusting his knowledge and experience, I was overjoyed to be able to buy a property well below the listing price….I never would have imagined it!

Daryl continued to stay in contact after closing date, to ensure that any questions were answered and any issues identified and answered.

In addition, Daryl’s web site has valuable trustworthy resources and tips! I can assure you that you will not be disappointed in your house-hunting experience if you choose Daryl as your agent.

V. & W. Voros

Daryl was very professional in dealing with the recent sale of our North Vancouver Condo.

He was prompt in communication and available at all times to answer our questions.

The promotional material he prepared for our sale was exceptional. He made extra effort to show the condo at night to expose the city view to potential buyers.

A. Morales

I met Daryl back in 2010 when he was the realtor of the townhouse I wanted to buy. I really liked how he handled the deal at that time; he wasn’t my realtor but he was very objective and followed the directives from his customer. It was then, that I decided to work with Daryl when selling my house. We planned for more than 1 year when to sell our place, and since the first contact with Daryl he was very helpful and gave us all the facts out there. He kept us informed at all times during our journey and made the best recommendations to get the best deal, but always making sure we kept real our expectations. He was very responsive and was always respectful and professional. I have dealt with many realtors, and if in the future I need any help, I will definitely go back and work with Daryl. I trust him and for me that is the most important fact when selecting a service provider.

Yvonne Whetstone

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

#305 – 1283 Parkgate Place, North Vancouver

My wife and I were extremely happy with the way that Helen and Daryl offered a very personalized service, always available to talk or to listen, professional without being overbearing, and with very knowledgeable advice.  Ian and Shirley

Friedemann & Leigh Huettner

Dear Helen and Daryl. The advice & loyalty you gave us as you guided us through the process was absolutely invaluable. Thank you.  Friedemann & Leigh Huettner

Frank and Sherry DiPuma

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

Rich and Candace Busch

We have now used Daryl for both buying our first home and then selling our first home. Daryl had our full trust and confidence, which is is of the upmost importance in today’s real estate market. He went above and beyond what we could have ever expected. His tireless efforts kept us well-informed throughout the entire process. We came out on top and could not thank Daryl enough for his professionalism, tenacity and attention to detail. Rich and Candace Busch

Yael Drinkle

Daryl was a pleasure to work with in the sale of our home. His honest and supportive nature helped me feel at ease throughout the process.  He was extremely reliable and represented us in a very professional way.  He puts a lot of detail into his work, which helps make the process seamless for both the buyer and the seller.  I would gladly work with Daryl again and do not hesitate recommending him to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thank you, Yael  

Barry Woods and Michelle Woods

Daryl and Helen were extremely professional, organized and knowledgeable in selling our condo. We were impressed with the research they presented us on the market and our area. It was clear that they genuinely care about their clients as the well being of our family was always a priority. We would highly recommend their services to any of our friends and family. Barry Woods and Michelle Woods

David and Sharon

We were extremely happy to have Daryl Hoffman as our realtor for our recent sale and purchase.  He is knowledgeable, persistent, patient, skilled at negotiation and has fantastic customer service.  It didn’t matter when we contacted Daryl or what the subject matter was he always responded promptly and with the right answers.  Once we bought our Town Home in a strata he performed significant due diligence and walked us through all of the contractual requirements.  Daryl cares about his job and truly cared about us!!! David and Sharon

Peter and Valerie Wilson

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

P. and N. Shanahan

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.

C. and M. Spencer

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. 

T. and J. Lewinberg

“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.”

R. and M. Busch

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.

M. Ruck

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!!

David and Natalie

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!

Jason and Amanda

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.

Jason and Amanda

We have had many real estate deals and dealt with many real estate agents in the past. Daryl has rated number 1 . He kept us informed every step of the way and went above and beyond when information was requested by us. Thank you very much Daryl for your diligence.

John, Howard and Edgar

We have had many real estate deals and dealt with many real estate agents in the past. Daryl has rated number 1.

Bernie and Carol

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. 

Dan and Lauren

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.

M. and R. Lyons

We were ecstatic with the outstanding service provided by the Daryl and Helen Team. I would recommend their team to all my friends and family. 

Walter and Leanne

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!”
