Our Happy Customers

Amazing repeat performance!
First met Alex when we viewed a home he was showing. We didn’t buy it, but he did such a great job, we had him sell our home when the time came. Amazing repeat performance! He did 52 showings in one weekend, got 12 offers, and $151k over asking for us! We were ecstatic. Alex just helped us close a deal on a new house. He must be a busy guy, but we always feel like we’re getting personalized service. Great communicator. Always on time. Very highly recommend him! 5 Stars!

Above and beyond!
Alex recently helped us buy our first home. He came highly recommended by a friend and absolutely delivered. He guided us through the home buying process, listened to our needs, and was very honest. He went above and beyond to keep us fully informed and was very responsive. He always had our best interests in mind, and we couldn’t be more pleased. We will be using Alex in the future and would highly recommend Alex to anyone looking to buy or sell!

Authentic with a big heart
Alex was our Realtor for the sale of our family home where my parents raised multiple kids and created many amazing memories within. While dealing with my elderly parents, Alex was compassionate, respectful and took the time to ensure they understood every step of the process thoroughly. He is someone you can trust to get the job done right and is simply an authentic person with a big heart. Thanks, Alex for helping my parents exceed their retirement goals with the sale of their property.

From Condo to House
Alex has been a huge part of our growing family, by helping us move on from a condo to a townhome, and now to a house! We trusted him with our life savings and he did not disappoint. Gave us sound advice, was honest and authentic, and always had our best interest at heart. Would 1000% recommend Alex to anyone we know!

Thank you for all the hard work!
This is the third time I’ve had the pleasure of working with Alex. He goes above and beyond to ensure your home buying/selling experience is as smooth as possible. Two of the three deals were finalized around 3 am and Alex was more than happy to keep going if needed. If that doesn’t demonstrate commitment then I don’t know what does. Very honest, no BS, extremely knowledgeable and excellent at building relationships with other realtors. I also appreciate that he uses DocuSign to help make the lengthy process of signing much much quicker. I am an extremely picky person who is hard to please but Alex was able to keep me in check with accurate information and a logical decision-making process. Thank you for all the hard work and for helping us find our new home.

M. Wengranowski

Managed both purchase and sale perfectly!
Alex helped my wife and me strategically from every step from the beginning. Under Alex’s guidance, we were very confident every step of the way from selling our previous home to finding and buying our new home. Alex is very knowledgeable, personable and very quick in response. Our unit sold quickly after the first open house with multiple offers and Alex managed to set our closing dates on both purchase and sale perfectly. We will definitely use Alex again in the future and will recommend Alex to all our family and friends.

J. Au Yeong

Has always exceeded our expectations
Alex has been our realtor for many transactions and has always exceeded our expectations. Professional, straightforward and efficient, Alex excels with on-point marketing, skillful negotiation tactics, and a very personable demeanour. We wouldn’t think of using another realtor in the Lower Mainland. Thanks again, Alex!

H. Tan

I highly recommend Alex
I worked with Alex to purchase a rental property in Vancouver. Alex was professional, extremely responsive and able to address all of the questions we had regarding the process. He identified a suitable property and we were able to secure it at a fair price. I highly recommend him and I expect to use him again in the future.

Alex is a dream to work with.
He’s a consummate professional who made my first experience selling a property so simple and straightforward. His skilled marketing techniques are effective and he got my property sold over asking in less than a week! His calm character makes both buyers and sellers feel at ease. I would highly recommend him!

C. Flak

Our home sold within 12 hours, its unbelievable

We appreciate everything you did for us yesterday to make this awesome deal happen!  Still seems unreal in a way.  We were hoping for “some” interest, but with your expertise and willingness to give that “extra” attention to our family home, so much more happened.  From our hopes of selling by the summer, to actually having the home sold within 12 hours, is unbelievable.  Thank you, again, Alex!  We are now REALLY looking forward to our weekend away.  Will truly be stress-free thanks in big part to you!

R. & M. Bartel

Sold our home at a record price

Today we got keys to our very own townhouse! Alex Yao sold our home at a record price, then subsequently bought our townhouse at below market value! Thank you Yao Real Estate for helping us make our dream come true in this crazy city!

He will help you from beginning to end

To anyone who is looking for a Realtor, I recommend mine, ALEX YAO.  As many of you know, I have gone through multiple realtors and mortgage brokers within the last year as I have been looking for a place for a while now.  Alex spent the time to understand what I was exactly looking for and answered all the questions I had.  As all of you guys know how picky I am, I am sure you all know the type of client I was.  He not only assisted me with finding a wonderful place to live but also gave me recommendations for a mortgage broker and notary for the final paperwork.  For anyone who is planning on purchasing a place, go with Alex.  He will help you from beginning to end.

Alex was my sounding board, confidant, and always looked out for me

I had a 2018 goal to own a home in this mind-blowing Vancouver real estate market and it happened!  Much love to my realtor Alex Yao for being my sounding board, confidant, and for always looking out for me and keeping me on the path with his honesty, industry confidence and our shared vision.  I am beyond proud of myself!

L. Miller

Alex is top quality.
Alex was our agent both on the buy and sell-side. He came through for us in a big way and I wouldn’t think of using anyone else. He really understand how to take care of his clients and was a pro in the negotiation process.

S. Laputka

Extremely knowledgeable and honest professional

I Had the pleasure of working with Alex for my first-time home buying experience, thanks to a referral from a colleague. Alex is an extremely knowledgeable and honest professional, whose every move is calculated in order to create an outcome in your favour. He is also well-established within the community, having networks with other highly-competent professionals (Mortgage broker, Notary, etc.), in order to ensure your purchase goes by seamlessly. I look forward to working with him in the future, especially after noting the difference in his high calibre of care that distinguishes him from the few other realtors I had come across in my initial search.

O. Kamron

I strongly recommend Alex

To future clients – Alex went above and beyond to meet our home buying needs and I could not have asked for a better realtor. I will be referring Alex to anyone who is looking to get into the real estate market and I strongly recommend anyone interested to give him a call immediately.

D. Nguyen

An extraordinary experience

Working with Alex has been an extraordinary experience – right from the initial introduction to the sale. He was a consummate professional that immediately provided me with confidence that he was going to present my place very well and achieve the best possible selling price. In addition to his exceptional sales networking skills, Alex staged the place and made use of a photographer whose pictures stunned me in quality. As a result of his attention to detail and quality service, my place sold quickly and much higher than the asking price. Completely broke the record in my building and will undoubtedly set the bar for future sales in the area. I will definitely be using him again and again.

A. Hull

Alex was very professional in his dealings with me. He was patient and left it up to me to decide as to when I was ready to purchase a property.

It took me over a year before I finally found what I was looking for. Once I became active in looking towards a purchase, Alex was more then helpful in helping me make the right decisions. He was accommodating to my needs and explained the nuances of the trade succinctly, providing recommendations and insight to help make my decisions easier.

S. Lum

My experience in dealing with Alex has been a very positive one. Alex always made me feel like I was a priority rather than a number. He genuinely made me feel like he was working for ME, with my best interests at the forefront.

Alex is very professional, comes with a wealth of knowledge, and has a genuine positive and trusting nature. He is very transparent.

Alex was always available to discuss concerns, or even guide me through the whole selling process.

Alex sold both my properties in under a week; Alex also achieved building records for price on both my properties. This clearly demonstrates his willingness to take on new challenges and not shy away from opportunities or obstacles presented to him.

I would highly recommend Alex for all your buying and selling needs.

F. Jamal

Alex’s personality and professional capability is absolutely stunning. He is highly experienced in what he does. It was very clear that he had our best interests in mind, and was patient, courteous, open and direct with all communications. He has a keen ability with forethought to our questions and put us at ease immediately, making our decision making process effortless. His honesty, integrity and ethical behaviour makes him one of the best realtors that my husband and I have dealt with. His guidance proved to be successful in our endeavours in purchasing two investment condos. He has exceeded our expectations. We will most definitely work with Alex again.

T. Sisengchanh

Working with Alex was an amazing experience. Even before we first met he gave me very honest and unbiased opinions about the real estate market in Vancouver on the phone. Alex is a very knowledgeable, competent and friendly realtor who will take care of your real estate needs in a professional manner. I would absolutely work with him again and recommend him!

A. Han

J. J. Dubec

I recently had the pleasure of having Alex as my realtor. Alex has a vast knowledge of Vancouver and has a large network of friends as associates. Having known Alex since 2002, I didn’t hesitate to have him sell and find me my new home. Alex has been very attentive to my search criteria and very patient with me. He always went over and beyond of what was expected of him as a realtor. He made both the selling and buying process as smooth as possible, while explaining every detail along the way. Alex has, throughout this entire process been on my side and always looked after my best interest. I would highly recommend Alex to anyone looking to sell their current home or purchase their next. Keep up the great work Alex!
