  "What People Say About Les"  
     
 

Les and I first met in early 2013. We did not want to sell at that time. But he stayed in touch and when our decision was made, we unfortunately did not initially list with him. But when the original listing expired, he was chosen, and showed outstanding skills in getting the job done with very fine professionalism.
His marketing efforts were over the top, exceeding expectations and demonstrating how to move the condo, giving it the widest exposure, and guiding us through a price decline.
Thanks Les, Arthur.

     
 

Les is simply a fantastic real estate agent. He listens and learns what the customer is looking for and doesn't try to up-sell or cross-sell the customer. He moves quickly and efficiently. He is gracious and thoughtful. He is strategic and tactical in negotiations. And he follows up to get to closing in the most effective way possible. During the past 40 years of my business career and personal life I have had experience with literally dozens of real estate agents as both a buyer and a seller and as an attorney for buyers, sellers and banks and I can say, without qualification, that Les is the best I have come across. It is a pleasure to do business with him and we feel completely in good hands.

We had used Les's website for a few years as we looked to buy a property in Vancouver, from our home in Arizona; it had always seemed very complete, accurate, and friendly. We had a previous commitment with an agent for the purchas e, so did not contract with Les for that transaction. However, when we got to the point of considering to resell, we immediately went to Les's website again. Les set an appointment, and showed up promptly, and then gave a very professional presentation of his sales methodologies, as we discussed the features of our condo. I have been in real estate for many years in AZ, and have never seen as complete a set of documentations on any properties that I have owned or sold. He presented a package of information on the condo and its comparables that would have been suitable for properties well above the value of ours. We have not decided whether or not to sell at the present time, but when we are ready, we will definitely contract with Les.

Thanks again,
Douglas Robinson

     
 

Thank you so much for advocating so well for us. In a very challenging market, when others were saying that condos aren't selling you put together an effective/productive marketing strategy!

We knew when we contacted Les that we would be connected with a strong sales team and you have not disappointed! We have been impressed by both your professionalism and your effective establishment of positive relationships with everyone you encountered.

It has been a pleasure working with you (and Les) on this sale. Your flexibility and willingness to "go the extra mile" does not go unnoticed. While we do not plan any imminent property sales, we would certainly recommend your services to others.

Thanks again,
Richard and Janice Munroe

     
 

We have found the home of our dream thanks to Les! We appreciate his patience, his professionalism and his vast experience in the field. It was a pleasure to work with him, to be guided around the city in his beautiful car and to learn so much about real estate in Vancouver thanks to him and his magnificent on line presence.

Service and Professionalism by the Les Twarog team of Re/Max Crest Realty
I am very pleased with the professionalism and attention to detail shown by the Twarog team. I had put off put off selling my property for a long time, as there were many things that I dreaded doing, such as traveling to the property, cleaning the property to prepare for showing, gathering the condo association minutes, finding a lawyer and accountant, etc. Mr. Twarog did it all! Within a week, I had a good offer! Mr. Twarog and his team followed through with all of the contract details and I was able to do it all from my home in Florida. Mr. Twarog made it easy to sell!

Hi Les,
I must admit that your website is my go-to site for information about vancouver condo's. As I have yet to purchase my unit, I basically log onto your website whenever I have any spare time.

I am also 100% sure that if you took an even close look at the statistics, you will see that my page views and image views are pretty much the same ones each time. For example, for the last few months I have been interested in Melville, Shaw, L'Hermitage, Fairmont, Shangri-la and Jameson House with a few others mainly focused in Coal Harbour area. Even likely that the floor plan views are many times the same ones. So as I force of habit and whenever I have spare time, I log onto your website to see if any of the above developments have any new listings and many a times go back to see the old listings to see if I should consider them in the future.

Then recently I have thought about renting a place instead of purchasing, as such I look at the floor plans of the respective developments and compare to purchasing a unit to see which ones would better suit my needs especially for furniture placement. Again they are usually in the same developments as the ones I would consider buying.

I do commend you on developing a better user friendly website than any other vancouver condo realtor and much better than mls.ca/realtor.ca.
As I mentioned today, I do have a vancouver realtor that a family friend from Toronto had referred me to. If for any reason I am looking for a new realtor, I will definitely look you up next.

Best regards,
Philip

     
 

My wife and I loved the place. We enjoyed a few lovely meals on the deck with the waves rolling in.
Just awesome!

I highly recommend Les, he has the top web site and system for selling Condos in all of Vancouver. He is very professional and has his own dedicated sales team. I have used Les Twarog for my real estate transactions for the past 25 years. He found me my Condo at Cambridge Gardens and later found a buyer for me and completed the sale.

Les, I wanted to thank you for letting us stay at your place. Your building and condo is beautiful. The view from the balcony is unbelievable, as we always looked forward to spending the evening on it when we got home from being out all day. It truly has all the comforts of being at home, with the convienence of being steps away from the beach and pool. The Internet and Vancouver cable was a great touch, as it made it very easy to stay in touch with everyone back home.

Thanks again

Hi Les

Thank you for facilitating the sale of our property TH5 – 2668 Ash, especially in this period where nothing seems to be moving, and For Sale listings far outnumber the sales figures. That you accomplished this while getting us the full listing price, and all in the face of seemingly overwhelming challenges, is praiseworthy.

When I I think of the odds against us at the start, it seemed almost insurmountable. My partner, who chooses cards to reflect the events taking place, chose the card "Miracle". I personally believe your incredible marketing system, the way you are set up on your site, and the many links you have to other realtors had a lot to do with it as well.

Best Wishes,

Just wanted to pass on how pleased we were with our stay in the condo. We especially enjoyed the spacious deck and spent many hours watching the waves and sipping wine. The condo itself was beautiful, and the kitchen ammenities made cooking their enjoyable. We normally do the all inclusive for these quick trips, but we are so glad we chose to do this instead. I will definately pass on recommendations to anyone I know traveling that way and would like to post a review on trip advisor, with your permission, to include your contact info.

Thanks

It was a pleasure working with you on this sale. Great communication - clear, concise, and courteous. You were professional and respectful in your dealings with me. The deal was negotiated truthfully and with full transparency.

I wanted to thank you for the professional service you provided in our recent search for and purchase of a condominium in downtown Vancouver. This is the second time in a little over a year that you have assisted us in purchasing property, and as was the case last time, your knowledge of the marketplace, attention to detail, prompt handling of all questions and efficient time management, together, made our search and decision process enjoyable and painless. It has been a pleasure working with you again.

Thanks for the excellent work!

I want to say that I have been using your website for the past few weeks now and amazed at all the information you have on here. Congratulations on a job well done. I have been doing research on real estate for various reasons and your website always comes up as one to check out and the information you give people can be useful for so many things. I just read an article on buying a marina it was great information even if I'm not buying one soon.

VancouverFloorPlans.com was invaluable to me for my apartment search. Being able to check on the size, layout and location in the building, before even arranging to view a place meant that I only saw places that were truly possibilities. Knowing if a place is south facing, has bedrooms that share a wall as opposed to separated, seeing where the actual view will be (as opposed to creative photography of someone hanging off the edge of their balcony), was well worth the the price of this service. Hopefully I won't be moving for a good while, but when I do, I won't hesitate to sign up again to help in my search.

Best regards,

I just wanted to say thank-you to you & your team for an absolutely wonderful experience. Your perseverance and professionalism was what drew me to your company in the first place & I am very pleased with the results. Now we can concentrate on the Georgia project. I'm sure we may have dealings in the future as I recall that you have a sun spot in Mexico...? Again thank-you for your services. Take care & pass on my regards to everyone on your team.

Sincerely,

We are so impressed with our new Yaletown property.
Your Team, and we emphasis Team, epitomizes what a successful agency should be. From the initial contact - immediate - even when you are out of the country, to the possession date - all done right!.
We are amazed how you or one of your colleagues come through with any and all of our queries. This is simply not done to this level.
This being the 8th property you have assisted us, we are witnesses to your professionalism and successful team building.

Hi Les
let me start by saying your web site is amazing. This is what the internet does best. All the information in one spot.

Thanks, Daryl

     
     
 

Your site is the best. I wasn't familiar with my options for Vancouver and I'm currently working and situated in Tripoli, Libya. Not only did I manage to review ALL my options, but I've narrowed the search to three buildings and expect to close shortly. Giving the buyer access to this extensive information pool saves time and has given me a great sense of security that I'm making well informed decisions. It was a very easy decision to give you my business.

Regards, Oliver

     
     
  Les ; it was a pleasure meeting with you last week. The best part of our business is meeting successful business people like yourself who have built their business through hard work & superior customer service. Your website combines both superior service with the best real estate website in Vancouver serving your present & prospective clients

  I just wanted to congratulate you on your extremely useful website.
The information you have complied and made available via the internet is very useful to us in our practice. For example, we often need to determine which property management company is associated with a strata property. It is quite common for us to find that this important information is either missing or incorrect when we receive instructions from vendors and other real estate firms.
This information is on your site for a large number of buildings, and in every instance we have found it to be accurate and up to date.

  LOVE your website by the way
My husband and I are both Canadians and want to move to Vancouver in the next 5 or so years – and when we were up last time –this building really caught my eye – so thought I would keep watch on it via your site…
When we get more serious – I'll be in touch to really expand our search…
Thanks in advance!

  I will say this: when I'm buying a place, I want exactly all the kinds of detail that you provide in that PDF that can be downloaded from your site. This is definitely the way to sell real estate! Just wanted to let you know I wish all real estate sales had this amount of detail in their listing, I wouldn't have to see the place!

  I had been enjoying your website - I was sorry to hear of the misuse etc. My husband and I are in the process of buying a downtown apartment. I would like to continue to use the website for maybe one or two months at most and I certainly don't mind paying for that time.

  I am sorry a few bad apples ruined it for the rest of us. I think you have been very generous in providing this service all these years for free. In my opinion, the real estate board should buy this site from you and maintain it, because it gives us more information than MLXchange. I don’t mind paying a fee for usage of the website, that way, you will have more control of who can have access. The blatant abuse by some realtors® to try to download all your information to build their own websites is purely despicable.
Thank you Les for providing us with this tool.

A HUGH THANKS.
 
     
     
  Hello Les:
Your web site is spectacular. I am so happy that I found it and it was amazing to get you on the telephone. Thank you for taking a few minutes of your time to speak with me and for the kind reception that you greeted me with on the spur of the moment. After two days of surfing and calling, it was a pleasant and welcome surprize.

  ######### When we selected Les Twarog as our realtor® we were impressed with his "sense of urgency" about the business of listing our West End Penthouse. He set out a thorough plan and conscienciously followed through. The resulting sale proved our selection of him to be correct.
Les and his team were always available, patient with their explanations and used the most current marketing methods. It is often said "We don't pay for work, we pay for results" .

Thank you.
Your Happy Clients,
Donna Stein & Ron Drane
