As a first-time home buyer, I wanted to ensure that I was working with realtors who really knew the business and covered all the bases. I originally planned on working with a friend who was new in the industry but decided that Pospischil Realty Group had everything I was looking for: almost a hundred years of combined experience, extensive real estate knowledge (both for selling and buying), and just overall genuine and client-based service. I initially met with Adam Pospischil and we walked through the first few steps of buying a home – he was very thorough and I was impressed with the knowledge he had right off the bat. I felt like I could ask him anything and he would know the answer or find it for me. No leaky condos in my future! David Wu spearheaded my search and tirelessly met me for open houses and viewings. Finally when I found the perfect home (which not many first-time home buyers get to say); his real estate prowess really came out! I can say with 100% certainty that I was only able to have my offer accepted because of his smart and quick thinking, his analysis of the market and his offer strategy. Getting the phone call from David confirming my offer was accepted was the highlight of 2017; I couldn’t have done it without them! If you’re a first-time home buyer, a 20th-time home buyer, or looking to sell your property, I would not hesitate to call Pospischil Realty Group
2017 Pumpkin Patch, Thank You Vancouver For Your Support!.
This past weekend at our annual Pumpkin Patch Fund Raiser Event, we raised $2500 towards cancer research and treatment options (BC Cancer Foundation) and for Trafalgar Elementary School. You and your neighbours came out by the hundreds to get a fright, pick your favourite pumpkin(s), eat popcorn, cupcakes and play with dozen of halloween toys and monsters to support this great event. Over 300 pumpkins were chosen and a good time had by all!

Thank you dearly!! Amazing, so fast!!
You are truly wonderful!!!
There were more than words could express when Nicholas told me the news, so I shrieked joyfully of surprise and relief! (And started dancing) hahaha.
As you know there are so many emotions involved in getting a house sold….
I feel lucky and grateful.
Having Marty as my realtor is like having a best friend in the business! It is comforting to have a realtor I can completely trust. He is truly a high caliber professional and his knowledge of Vancouver market and excellent negotiating skills were key successful sale of my townhouse in July. Also I cannot say enough about Adam’s hard work and dedication – it is a pleasure to work with such a bright and personable realtor who made the buying and selling of my Cambie property seamless and easy. Adam- I appreciate your patience and great smile. Thank you Marty and Adam for your fantastic work! I look forward to working with you again.
“Thank you and the entire Pospischil team for your diligence, persistence and professionalism. Selling the home we just built was not an easy decision, but Team Marty made it easier on our entire family. Your patience with three kids under four and understanding of our family needs was of particular importance and was very much appreciated. Although at first I was a little hesitant on the listing price, your system proved to provide the highest overall market price for our home. I thank you for the quick close and attention to detail in the sale of our home.”
Just as I predicted in our New Year newsletter, the market has taken off and is on an ascent to new record levels this year.Just the other day we sold a character 33’ lot ‘north-of-4th’ 1912 home in a multiple offer situation selling $520,000 above asking. Now if that’s not an indicator of a market recovery I don’t know what is. We have a couple dozen similar stories of other recent sales this year. Both the Eastside and Westside markets are now in ‘Sellers Markets’ with sales ratios above 21%. With inventory levels beginning to climb substantially now, home owners are now more comfortable listing their home for sale as there are more and more purchase options for them. And the residual left-over buyer demand from last year, coupled with this year’s increasing demand, has created and insatiable buyer appetite. So new listings are being very well received if handled properly and marketed strategically.
Following the government intervention into our market at the provincial, federal, and municipal levels last year, our market responded negatively falling by approximately 15%, hitting rock bottom in October. Like a stunned fighter after a knock-out blow, our market sat up in late fall gathering it senses. By the new year, it was on its feet gaining strength and today it’s in full recovery mode gaining strength by the week.
Just another clear message to our governments that government intervention at any level with poor planning and no industry dialogue is doomed to fail. I mean really? What were they thinking?
The hottest segment of our market is still attached condos, townhomes, and half duplexes breaking the 70-80% sales ratio market. Again, this is mainly driven by affordability for the upgrade buyers adding to the increased downsizing demand. Detached houses on the eastside followed by houses on the Westside are also getting hotter and hotter.
Timing your move either up or down is one of the most critical decisions you need to make when making a move. Through our detailed Real Estate Timing Analysis, Adam and I go through a well-researched custom timeline for you that enables you to take full advantage of the cyclical and overall market patterns. It’s our job to make this next move the best ever from the sell to the buy.
So far, the team and I are on a record setting pace this year with over $37,000,000 in properties sold so far. And the vast majority of these sales have been at record setting values thanks to the continued success of our 38+ Point Marketing Plan and Backoffice follow-up and tracking systems. Thank you for continuing to recommend us to your neighbours and friends. Our repeat and referred clients continue to account for over 80% of our business. We value your business and those that you send to us. Again, thank you!
“Wow, what a ride! From selling our home to purchasing a new one, Marty and Adam defined the term full service! Professional, confident and informed, we knew we were in good hands from the beginning of the relationship. Every little detail was covered and we were impressed with how they went above and beyond for us. We would recommend Adam and Marty to anyone looking for the best realtor experience in Vancouver.”
“Marty and Adam were recommended by a family member. Thanks to their far-reaching marketing plan and two open houses, I sold my home in a week. The team brought six offers to the table at the first post open houses meeting and a sale resulted at over 10% above the asking price. Marty’s and Adam’s professionalism, experience, and communication skills plus their Home Prep Coordinator Jennifer’s advice and support made a major life event a smooth and timely process that leaves me free to move on to my next home and retirement. I highly recommend Team Pospischil.”
“We wanted to list our property, but we were hesitant due to all the noise in the media regarding the drop in the real estate market. When we spoke to Marty, he informed us that there was a lack of inventory in our specific market and there was a lot of pent-up demand. We were willing to do some renovations, but he knew that timing was more important, so we listed right away at market value. He promoted our property well and got heavy traffic in our open houses, which generated multiple offers. It sold in a week for almost 20% over asking. We were shocked! There is no way we would have received the offers we did without the hard work from him and his team. We are so grateful.”
A few weeks ago, I was in the belief that location and mountain and water views were the cardinal requirements of selling my property.
After consulting with Marty Pospischil, and reviewing Marty’s Comparative Market Analysis prepared exclusively for my property, I realized that a dedicated professional real estate team is much more important for a successful sale.
Following Marty’s Sales review and his 38 Point Marketing Plan, my home was prepared by the team members for the following three open houses.
The extensive advertising program on the internet, by thousands of property cards and brochures brought 77 interested purchasers through my property and generated six offers within a week.
Finally, Offer Presentation crowned the hard work of Marty’s Team by a record-setting price close to the sky-high 2017 Property Assessment Notice.
I highly recommend Team Marty Pospischil to homeowners who are considering selling a property on the West Side of Vancouver.
