What My Clients Are Saying
"Robert exceeded expectations throughout all stages of the process”
"Robert always answered our questions and concerns promptly and thoroughly. He was a calm, steady and patient advisor throughout the emotional experience of listing, selling and moving from our longtime West Vancouver family home. From beginning to end he was helpful, knowledgeable and professional, and we would definitely recommend him."
“Robert Matthews is the BEST Realtor!"
"I'd say Robert Matthews is the BEST Realtor and I've bought and sold a number of homes over the years. Don't think he is only a Vancouver Realtor either as he sold our townhome in Burnaby very quickly, for MORE than our asking price. By the time the staging was done and the photos were up I thought " wow ! " Robert was recommended to us by a friend and we have since recommended him to another friend; we are all happy with his work."
“With Robert at the helm, I felt relaxed and calm in this frenzied Vancouver market”
"From our first meeting I found Robert to be professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy and calm. Robert exceeded my expectations during all the stages of the selling process and I was very pleased with the price I received. I find moving to be a stressful event and yet with Robert's assistance I felt relaxed and calm during the entire process in a frenzied Vancouver market. I highly recommend Robert to help any seller achieve their real estate goals."
“Robert helped us sell two condos and purchase a house. Super responsive and great feedback on what buyers want to see. Very professional and encouraged us to wait for the right offer. Also helped us get to the front of the queue in a very tight market on our purchase."
"You helped us through a difficult time"
“Thank you, Robert, for helping me and my brother out during a very difficult time, to sell the family house at top market value, and to help my brother buy a new condo. You were etremely professional, compassionate and patient, and I do highly recommend you, whether a person is buying or selling."
"This place is perfect for my needs. Thank you!"
“I'm loving it! So often I think about how perfect my new home is for what I need, which usually gives me a chance to tell everyone else how awesome my real estate agent was for putting up with my pickiness over such a long period of time ;). I actually just recommended you to another friend this past weekend when he came to see my place for the first time.
Thanks again, Robert, for helping me get this place!"
“I was in Toronto but Robert was totally on top of things.”
"Robert did a great job for my recent sale in Vancouver. He was smart, efficient and strategic for the sale of my Coal Harbour property to maximize value. Multiple bids and an excellent price achieved. I was not able to get away from my job in Toronto during the listing, staging and sales process; but Robert was totally on top of everything, despite his busy schedule. The process couldn't have been easier. I would highly recommend Robert for assistance on the listing or buying side."
“Your idea for move logistics will help me out immensely!”
"Thank you so much, Robert. I feel you have done an excellent job of marketing and negotiating the sale of my Vancouver condo, and finding a way for me to keep a home base here in the Lower Mainland. I never even considered Burnaby, but you found me the perfect new home. And thank you for putting me touch with the buyers; their request (and your idea!) to buy some of my furniture will help me out immensely! I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone who is looking for a realtor."
“Both my sale and purchase results exceeded expectations.”
Robert did a fantastic job guiding and closing my house sale from start to finish, focusing me on what was important, while helping out with dozens of details to smooth the process, and maximize my selling price. The package he put together was very professional, with excellent staging, photography, an accurate floor plan, and an appealing description.
He was also very helpful in my search for, and purchase of, my new home, providing expert guidance as my expectations evolved, and guiding me through the purchase process. The home I ended up purchasing was not yet visible on the public listing service when he referred me to it. Having him feeding me leads the minute they became available was invaluable, especially in the current hot market.
I heartily recommend Robert if you’re looking to buy or sell. His professionalism, enthusiasm, hands on approach, and easy going manner made him very easy to work with, and the results for both my sale and purchase exceeded my expectations. I’ll definitely be calling on him for my next move!

"Robert's read of the Vancouver market is spot-on."
Living in Arizona and preparing a home to sell in Vancouver can be quite complicated! I hadn’t seen my home since I rented it two years ago, so I fully depended on Robert’s advice regarding maintenance and repair issues, and his recommendations for painting and other selective renos. Robert was invaluable in managing the repair and update process for me, so that my home was in tip top shape for selling. He gathered quotes, and arranged painting and handyman schedules which gave me confidence that we’d maximize my selling price. Robert’s been a part of every house purchase and sale I’ve ever made. And every sale’s been less than three weeks, at a top price! His read of the Vancouver market is spot-on. Whether buying a first home (which Robert guided me through step by step), or selling a current home, I can highly recommend Robert! I know that no matter what my situation, I can count on Robert to be my home buying and selling expert.

"His consummate sales skills really do set him apart."
Robert has helped us with seven real estate transactions – and counting! What’s always impressed us is how Robert manages to line up the buyers quickly, and create the urgency of "the buy". His consummate sales skills really do set him apart. Robert, you have a permanent position as our go-to Realtor!
– Howard and Stefanie T.
"Robert really listened to us, and knew exactly what we were looking for, before we did!"
Robert recently helped us sell our home and buy another. We appreciated his calm and professional appraisal after every open house, his keeping us abreast of developments, and suggesting a change of position when needed. His tactful listening skills in how we tried to define what we were looking for helped to narrow down homes of potential interest to us. In the end it was on Robert’s suggestion that we saw and bought the home we presently own, a decision we’re very happy with. Our experience working with Robert was very positive and we would highly recommend his services to others looking to buy or sell.
– Rainer and Anne B.
"I really appreciate Robert's experienced counsel."
I’m really grateful that I followed my intuition and hired Robert. His experienced counsel was very much appreciated. I loved the “all it takes is the one right buyer at the right time” approach, which was much more positive than other agents at the time. I ended up getting more than others thought I could. Robert's approach to the sales process worked perfectly.

"Robert offers amazing value for his services."
We’ve worked with Robert to sell 3 properties in the Vancouver area. We’re always busy with the business, travel, family, etc. so when it was time to sell our most recent home, we didn’t hesitate to contact Robert again. He’s totally on top of market conditions and always knows the EXACT price at which to list. Robert offers amazing value for his services which include screening potential buyers from the lookie-loos and offering excellent tips to really help move a property. He manages to negotiate and close the best price imaginable every time. It’s wonderful to know that Robert is here, ready to help us next time.

"I'm happy to have a trusted advisor to refer to my friends."
Robert, thank you for helping me buy my several investment properties – and for steering me away from some others! I’ve been happy to have such a trusted advisor to refer to my friends, and I do expect that we’ll be working together for a long time yet. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking to buy or sell.

“We're thrilled that Robert is now helping our children buy their first homes.”
We’ve known Robert for many years. He’s so easy to work with! And when it comes time to close the deal, Robert is a relaxed yet knowledgeable – and savvy! – negotiator. For all our sales and purchases Robert’s ensured that we get the best price possible – with the minimum of stress. Our children are now ready to buy their first homes, and we’ve no hesitation to recommend Robert. He’s patient and insightful, and we know he’ll do a great job guiding first-time buyers through what can be a stressful process, especially in Vancouver. Robert’s real estate experience, his insights and his knack of reading the market continue to inspire our confidence. We keep in close contact with Robert, always happy to have him by our side when buying or selling a home.

“Robert did not disappoint!”
Robert was referred to us with high praise, and we must say that he did not disappoint! This is the first time we’ve waded into the real estate market after more than a decade away, so we needed a lot of guidance and some gentle steering. Robert met our needs with exceptional professionalism while being incredibly attentive and considerate. The whole home-buying process went as smoothly as we could have asked for and we credit Robert for that. Needless to say, we’re delighted to recommend Robert to our friends, family and colleagues looking to sell or buy a home.

"You were the only Realtor we considered."
Thank you, Robert, for your skilled help in selling our home. When Sharon and I decided to sell, you were the only Realtor we considered. We knew from past experience that we could depend on your advice for preparation, staging, pricing, and, most importantly, to help us handle the stressful step of vetting offers. Thank you for your professionalism and proficiency.
– John R.

It’s stressful trying to buy a home while selling one at the same time! But your calm and professional demeanor really helped us through the process. Your knowledge, confidence, advice, and ability to effortlessly quell our concerns were just what we needed. And you were right – everything worked out beautifully. Thank you, Robert! We won’t hesitate to call on you again.
