"OUTSTANDING !!!! ...... I can't speak highly enough for Shaun & Sotheby's"
OUTSTANDING !!!! ...... I can't speak highly enough for Shaun & Sotheby's ....... As the Executor of my Father's Estate & a non- resident, I needed to sell a Condo at Cascina in Coal Harbour ..... Shaun Kimmins , Sotheby's International Realty - Canada , was highly recommended to me by both the Cascina Concierge & several Residents as being the Go- To Realtor to handle this sale ...... And, Shaun did NOT disappoint ...... This undertaking , being part of an Estate sale , was extremely complicated ...... Shaun's vast knowledge of the Vancouver market proved to be INVALUABLE !!!! ...... Not only was he able to sell the Condo for the Estate quickly at a great price ; but he also had the necessary connections with the needed professionals to get me through the Probate Process as painlessly as possible to complete the sale ...... In fact , there was no detail too large or too small which he did not successfully take care of for the estate ...... However; the true measure of Shaun Kimmins as a consummate professional is that, even after the sale was complete & Sotheby's had no further obligation to me as a client, Shaun still made himself available to assist me in taking care of some final minor issues that needed to be addressed ...... That is truly going the extra mile for a client & is PRICELESS !!!!!

"Shaun has proven himself to be an exceptional professional in today's competitive and challenging market in Coal Harbour, Vancouver, B.C"
Shaun was very knowledgeable in making effective suggestions as I was preparing my suite for sale. He organized it's staging, prepared a highly professional marketing program (which included a professionally shot and edited video), and personally oversaw every step of the sale from its beginning to beyond the end. He offered expert guidance in its presentation, pricing, and marketing. In addition, he was completely familiar with competing properties. Shaun worked well and negotiated with integrity with the other agents. He produced two offers within two weeks and my place sold at a record price. He continued to work on my behalf throughout the transition and final transfer of the property. He was always prompt, personally available, and responsive to every situation as it presented itself. I would highly recommend him to both buyers and sellers alike."

"Shaun demonstrated such a masterful command of the intricacies of Coal Harbour real estate..."
When we decided to sell our condo in Coal Harbour, we searched for the right realtor for our situation. As non-resident owners living in the US, we knew that we needed a skilled real estate specialist... Shaun demonstrated such a masterful command of the intricacies of Coal Harbour real estate in general and of our building in particular. Shaun is a technical analyst when it comes to property evaluations and he presents as accurate and dependable an evaluation as one could possible hope to get. His team prepared an extremely professional video presentation of our condo along with numerous photos. We were even more convinced that his marketing strategy is effective when he sold our condo in only 14 days. In a city like Vancouver which has so many real estate professionals, it can be daunting to find the right one. From our experience, Shaun Kimmins is indeed the right one!

As I was leaving immediately for California, I left my affairs completely in your capable hands and trusted I was making the right choice. Trust being the key word. Daily emails and phone calls from you ensured my complete involvement in all necessary decisions. There was the overseeing of the moving company, repairs, painting and cleaning in readiness for the staging. I especially appreciated your knowledge of the area, Coal Harbour, and your skilled advice in guiding me through uncharted waters of my very first sale of property. Kimmins and Associates, with the assistance of skilled professionals, managed the entire staging of my property resulting in a swift and successful sale. Congratulations for a job well done.

"Shaun's area knowledge and strategic thinking were key to getting sold before the market turned down again for the year. We wholeheartedly recommend Shaun's services to anyone thinking of selling their luxury property in Coal Harbour."
My husband and I had previously listed our Coal Harbour waterfront townhouse twice with two other realtors. They showed our property to countless prospective buyers but were unable to generate a sale. When we finally concluded that we needed the assistance of a local area specialist, we enlisted the services of Shaun. He sold our property in 5 days at very good price in a difficult, rapidly-changing market. As Coal Harbour's most specialized realtor, he is able to "cross-pollinate" his listings. The buyers of our property first went to view another of Shaun's area listings so Shaun took the opportunity to show them through our property. In almost no time, Shaun strategically engineered competition between 3 groups of buyers and achieved a successful sale in a matter of days. Shaun's area knowledge and strategic thinking were key to getting sold before the market turned down again for the year. We wholeheartedly recommend Shaun's services to anyone thinking of selling their luxury property in Coal Harbour.

Throughout the process of showing the unit the professional approach of Shaun and his team came through especially in their ability to asses the seriousness of potential buyers.
When we decided to sell our property we were looking for an agent with a demonstrated sales record together with an extensive knowledge of our local area and it’s circumstances. With Shaun we got this. In a changing and uncertain market he provided us with a good range of options and strategies for upgrading and staging the unit. We were impressed with his willingness to work with our choices and help us make refinements as the market changed. Throughout the process of showing the unit the professional approach of Shaun and his team came through especially in their ability to asses the seriousness of potential buyers. In the end we very much appreciated Shaun's skill in helping the buyer and us, as sellers, make the tough decisions that allowed the sale to be made.
"The smoothest and most professional real estate experience we have ever had"
The smoothest and most professional real estate experience we have ever had. Shaun was on top of everything keeping us informed and handled all the details.

"We would recommend Shaun's services to other non-resident sellers"
As non-resident sellers, we worked with Shaun on the sale of 2 condo properties, one of which had been listed by another agent and previously remained unsold. We found that Shaun's detailed knowledge of our specific market and his condo specialization experience served us very well and both properties sold during a very difficult period in the real estate market. Shaun's professionalism, attention to detail and timely communications facilitated both sales without requiring our presence in Vancouver on either occasion. We would recommend Shaun's services to other non-resident sellers.

"Shaun made the process of selling property while living outside Canada, seamless and less stressful"
I owned a vacation property for personal use only and had much hesitation around selling my condo as I was unfamiliar with the non-resident process. I needed direction as a first time seller of non-residential property. Shaun made this entire process less intimidating by providing basic information and fundamental direction to get the process started. With each step I felt more confident and less hesitant with the process.
I made the choice to work with Shaun because of his knowledge and ability to provide solid recommendation and direction for a non-resident sale of a property in Canada.
Shaun made the process of selling property while living outside Canada, seamless and less stressful. My condo sold in less than 48 hours for over asking price with competing offers. I felt that Shaun was very professional and handled the entire process with utmost integrity. I was please and surprised to move so fast. I knew once I made the decision I wanted things to move fast, however the pace of events was far past my expectations. Shaun can make recommendations for reliable and professional experts to guide one through the process of a non-resident sale in Canada with great success.

"it was reassuring to have a service-oriented realtor who communicated clearly and regularly and who facilitated such a quick and stress-free sale."
Shaun Kimmins was referred to my wife and me for assistance with the sale of our Coal Harbour condo. Shaun’s extensive experience in the Coal Harbour area was evident from the start and his straightforward approach to pricing and marketing was very effective in achieving a quick sale at a very good price.
As a busy professional and part-time resident of the area, it was reassuring to have a service-oriented realtor who communicated clearly and regularly and who facilitated such a quick and stress-free sale.
We have no hesitation in recommending Shaun to both current or future, resident or non-resident Coal Harbour condo owners.

"Shaun succeeded in selling the properties for my asking price within a short period of time"
I have retained Shaun on two occasions to sell my condominiums. On both occasions Shaun succeeded in selling the properties for my asking price within a short period of time. In doing so Shaun was professional and very responsive, always returning my calls quickly and providing me with updates on potential buyers. As a lawyer practicing real estate law I deal with a lot of realtors; most are good but few are exceptional. In my experience Shaun is an expert in his field and offers an exceptional level of service to his clients. I will certainly use Shaun again when the time comes and have no hesitation recommending him to others.

"He under promises and over delivers. He is the first and only realtor I would consider"
I have worked with Shaun Kimmins over the last 5 years with the successful sale of 2 condos, one in Coal Harbour, the other in Yaletown. Shaun is a true professional in every aspect of his work. He provides detailed information on the market, the specifics of the local area and the best strategy for my particular requirements. Both condos sold within a week, at prices I was very happy with. Having worked with other realtors in the past, the key reason I continue to work with Shaun and recommended to several of my friends is his integrity. He under promises and over delivers. He is the first and only realtor I would consider.

"We are pleased to offer our enthusiastic and unequivocal endorsement of Shaun’s work"
Shaun Kimmins recently represented us in the purchase of a condominium in Yaletown. We chose Shaun because we found him to be experienced, professional, well-informed, honest, and an exceptional communicator. He understands and explains the challenging Vancouver market extremely well.
Shaun recognized what we wanted; kept us focused in our search; steered us away from many properties that did not meet his standards; and educated us in the new experience of condominium buying (our real estate experience was all with single-family homes). Market conditions shifted as our search progressed, and Shaun kept us continually informed and educated.
When it was time to negotiate a purchase, Shaun’s analysis of property values was formidable. We trusted and followed his advice throughout, and are completely happy with the deal he negotiated and the home we purchased.
We are pleased to offer our enthusiastic and unequivocal endorsement of Shaun’s work. We will certainly use him when we are buying and selling real estate in the future, and we highly recommend him to anyone seeking excellent representation.
– Janet & Ross (Buyers, Vancouver)
"We selected Shaun because of his no-nonsense assessment of the current market and his upfront nature."
Shaun worked with us to establish realistic expectations from the current market and a strategy to sell our house as quickly as possible. He gave us a comprehensive breakdown of our area complete with competing listings and historical market trends. This meant a lot to us as we felt comfortable with the entire process and pricing strategy he was recommending.
Shaun was upfront and helpful throughout the entire process. We are happy to report that he sold our house within 4 weeks and he made it smooth and hassle free for us. We would happily work with Shaun again and would recommend him to anyone looking to sell their property. As non-resident sellers, we worked with Shaun on the sale of 2 condo properties, one of which had been listed by another agent and previously remained unsold. We found that Shaun's detailed knowledge of our specific market and his condo specialization experience served us very well and both properties sold during a very difficult period in the real estate market. Shaun's professionalism, attention to detail and timely communications facilitated both sales without requiring our presence in Vancouver on either occasion. We would recommend Shaun's services to other non-resident sellers without hesitation.
