When you asked why we went with you as our real estate agent I would have to say Passion and Knowledge. But after you achieved such a great SOLD price, I would have to say Marketing Skills. By far, truly an amazing experience. Our only question is: How did you handle all those buyers?Joel and Majella
We were having a very slow start to our sale. Andrew was not discouraged he kept our spirits up and was very positive. Andrew was up to date every week showing us statistics of sales in the area, amount of homes listed for sale, and comparables for our listing price. Andrew never once gave us anything but a positive outlook. We had numerous phone calls, emails between us. All inquiries were answered in a very timely manner. We found out later that Andrew gave up an international holiday he had planned, because our house was not selling. Now that is dedication!!
We feel that Andrew has so much integrity and forethought, we never once felt that he was going to encourage us to take a deal just to have a sale. He wanted us to have the best deal possible and was very responsible in recommending any price changes. Much thought went into any changes that were going to be made.
Andrew, through this whole process of selling our home, was always coming up with new strategies to try and make the sale happen in the best way possible for us.
We would definitely recommend Andrew’s services, you will find that you will have a very honest, hard- working, intelligent man with the highest integrity working for you.
Thank you Andrew for the impeccable work you did for the Panasiuk family.Iris and Dan Panasiuk
I handle foreclosures on behalf of Spectrum Canada, and have worked with Andrew for the past few years on quite a few properties. Andrew has always gone that extra mile to protect our interests. His knowledge, persistence and dedication exceed many of the realtors I have dealt with, and I deal with dozens of realtors all over Canada. Like he says, “it’s all about service”, I can assure anyone that those aren’t just spoken words, or a marketing line, Andrew does in fact live by them. I plan to use him for all my future listings on the lower mainland on behalf of Spectrum, and I would not hesitate to use his services for my personal interests also.Richard Ross

Andrew marketed and sold our house and I felt he was very professional and thorough in how he went about getting the job done. He listened and was open to our input at every stage and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a great real estate agent.Mark and Monika Stevens
We can’t believe it, from the first day we met you 14 years ago, you continue to amaze us with your personable and professional abilities to assist our family. We have a whole new respect for agents and in particular you. Nothing was ever too much for you and you have always given us a terrific selling experience. Every time, you helped us achieve a selling price we never even dreamed of. So happy to refer you to friends and neighbours.Karen and Randy Henderson
We were first time homebuyers with very little experience in the world of real estate, Andrew was a tremendous help. Andrew was extremely helpful through the whole process; from listening to all our concerns, being patient as we changed our minds about location, house style and more, and even helping us find a mortgage broker. We definitely couldn’t have done it without Andrew’s help and knowledge, especially when contemplating a fixer upper. Thanks Andrew for all the work you did to negotiate an amazing deal on our home we love!Greg and Lauren Zibauer
My husband and I recently purchased a home in the Cloverdale area and we were so happy that we had Andrew to guide us through the process. When we originally met with Andrew, we were looking to purchase a home that was a few years old. He met with us to discuss our needs and was very helpful in sending us listings that met our extensive criteria. This was our first home buying experience and Andrew was very patient as we looked through several homes in a couple of areas in Cloverdale, South Surrey, and White Rock. We soon narrowed our search to a single neighbourhood in Cloverdale. One thing that we noticed immediately with Andrew was his attention to the small details that we may have otherwise missed. He has a good eye for quality of construction and finishings and he pointed out many positives and negatives in each home.
Part way through our search for a home, we switched gears and decided that we were going to build a home. Andrew was very flexible and willing to change directions with us as we went from looking for a home to looking for a building lot. Andrew had an impressive base of knowledge regarding home building and was willing to help with lot searches, including listed and unlisted properties. Additionally, Andrew had knowledge of several contractors and trades people in the area that could work with us to build a home.
Shortly after we began looking for a lot, my husband and I decided that we would pre-purchase a new home in Cloverdale. Once again, Andrew was patient and supportive with our decision. He did a phenomenal job representing us and making sure that we were well taken care of throughout the process our home purchase. He checked in with us on a regular basis as our house was nearing completion. When we were dissatisfied with the way our yard was being finished, Andrew contacted the builder to ensure that the lot elevations were in line with what had been specified in our contract.
Andrew went above and beyond our expectations in a realtor. He is personable, knowledgeable and patient. He takes customer service to a whole new level. We would not hesitate to recommend him to our friends and family.Al and Shelley Vernon
Andrew was an excellent realtor who assisted us with the sale of our home. He was willing to go the extra mile. Thanks Andrew!Ray and Dorothy Marshall
In dealing with a very large number of people on a day to day basis over many years, I can honestly say Andrew has always shown himself to be a first-class professional and at the ‘top of his class’….hard working, honest as the day is long, sincere…..and as smart as he is…doesn’t let it get in the way….”Andrew Gets The Job Done”….that’s just the way his is, plain and simple! Andrew gets my recommendation – no questions asked…Trusted Tried and True….he can be your friend, your business associate, your Realtor.John Henry
Andrew has been a friend of mine now for some time. In those years he’s bought a few home for my family. The service was always top notch! He was always there at the drop of a hat to see a property etc. He takes the time to explain the process and make sure you understand what’s happening along the way. Working as a partner as well has always been a pleasure. His quickness and willingness to work has always made my life easier when working with mutual clients. He’s a professional and it shows!”Christos and Athina Gitersos
Where do we start with all the great things to say about you, how you helped with the bank, got us a better mortgage, you surpassed everything that we thought a realtor could do & more!!!!!! You made a very stressful situation feel calm & gave us the best advice. You showed class, morality, understanding of both interests of husband & wife taking everything into consideration and more. You made us aware of all the details that we would not of have thought of. You were always extremely quick to return calls, polite & resourceful, above & beyond what we expected. Andrew you were very, very patient with us, we were not the easiest to deal with at times, you certainly went out of your way to make this an enjoyable purchase for us. You found us the perfect home in the perfect area. We have now been very happy in our home for over 1-1/2 years! I recommend you to everybody & anybody that wants a great realtor to find them a great home.Linda Purdon and Tap Kangas
We were skeptical of agents with the fumbling from a past listing and a loss of a sale. Through our daughter’s referral, Andrew assured us that he would get the results we needed to complete on our next home already purchased. This was so stressful and Andrew eased our worries by producing results. His collaboration of all events proved successful. We can’t talk enough about Andrew to our friends with the results he achieved… dedication, delivered promises and reborn faith in a professional real estate agent.Dan and Eileen Scott
Andrew has always been there for my clients I refer to Vancouver, Andrew’s skills to manage and personally provide superior real estate services always exceeds my expectations. I sleep well at night knowing my clients are well looked after on the West Coast.

Hey Andrew, much gratitude for getting my home sold for my expected price and short time frame. I have to admit, with the amount of curveballs thrown at you from other people, I for surely thought you’d fumble the sale. You dealt with those issues professionally and swiftly, one by one. Your communication/negotiation skills with the other agent and their buyer saved many headaches and seamlessly moved the deal forward. I was way too involved with my business to want to be updated on every detail and just wanted a clean and quick sale. You delivered a satisfying and painless experience for me and everyone else. When I am ready to sell my next property, you will be my first call again.Chris Frederick
From the day we first talked to the day we closed on all of our sales, Andrew jumped through hoops to make the process stress free. You really educated us with real estate and opened our eyes to what your days entail to getting us the highest prices for our homes, we couldn’t be happier. Our friends next door are selling soon and they want to use our ‘secret weapon’ too.Katie and Daniel Hydamacka
Andrew Szalontai did a fantastic job with the selling of our condo. We were going to look at several different realtors but as soon as we met Andrew we knew that he was going to be the best realtor for us. Andrew made us feel like we were his only clients. He was very dedicated and was available all the time. He sold our condo in two weeks for what we were asking. He made his enclosed trailer available to us and boxes to help with our move ( all at no charge!). We would definitely use Andrew again for selling our house and would recommend him to our closest family members. Thanks again Andrew!Geoff and Rita Patrick
With it being a very stressful time for me with my marital separation, you have made searching for a new home for my daughter & I, a fun & exciting time!
You have helped a very sheltered woman learn about real estate and never put pressure on me. I think it has been a very rewarding experience for both you & I. I am especially pleased that I convinced my husband to list our existing home with your team, so I could live my new chapter in life.Marilyn Walsh
Mi esposo y yo estamos muy contentos con el servicio que nos brindó nuestro agente de Real Estate Andrew Szalontai. Desde que le dijimos que queríamos empezar a buscar un departament en Downtown Vancouver empezó a mandarnos opciones y cada que había una cita para visitar un nuevo departamento él venía con nosotros. Siempre tuvo mucha paciencia a pesar de que nosotros estábamos indecisos sobre cuál era la mejor área para movernos, siempre estuvo a nuestro lado haciendo las preguntas adecuadas a los vendedores y tratando de negociar el mejor precio para nosotros.
Cuando nos avisó que el departamento era nuestro le dijimos que nos teníamos que cambiar una semana antes para evitar pagar cargos extra en el departamento que estábamos rentando y él arregló todo para que nos pudieramos cambiar en la fecha requerida.
Inclusive durante la mudanza estuvo al pendiente y nos consiguió cajas nuevas para empacar. Lo recomiendo totalmente, es una persona confiable y con muy buena ética profesional.
My husband and I are very happy with the services that our Real Estate agent, Andrew Szalontai, provided to us during the whole process of buying our new home.
We were not sure about what was the best condo and area for us to live in Downtown Vancouver but he was very patient all the time looking for new appointments and explaining to us all the process.
We even told him that we had to move earlier and he made all the arrangements so we could sign and receive our keys.
If you are looking not just for a good realtor, but for a person that you can totally trust, I totally recommend Andrew. He has the best work ethics and he even got involved during our moving.
We had the opportunity to search online for a while by ourselves to see what homes we could find. Some homes were sold by the time we found them and some realtors wouldn’t return our calls. My sister, Marilyn, recommended Andrew Szalontai, she was very impressed with his efforts on her transactions.
He always had great communication with us day and night, his attention to detail (good and bad) was great for another set of eyes, and being honest and straight forward made our decision of going with a recommendation a great experience. The mortgage broker we used of our choice, didn’t look out for our best interests and let the ball drop. Andrew was able to step in and get an extension on the offer to complete the finer details. Don’t waste your time hiring people outside of Andrews sphere of influence… he has so many reputable people that provide great services at his finger tips. He gets the job done right, the first time.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Andrew to friends, family and neighbours. Thanks for being cheerful, polite and punctual throughout this whole process.John and Angie Vaughan
I have had limited experience in the real-estate market and Andrew Szalontai was recommended to me by a friend. Andrew really helped me through the more confusing aspects of purchasing a home, as I got to know Andrew I began to appreciate his knowledge of the marketplace, his confidence and his patience. I was so impressed with Andrew’s professionalism that I decided to use him to sell my property in Burnaby. Andrew was less familiar with the Burnaby market but it sure didn’t affect his performance he was enthusiastic and did lots of research and price comparisons to help determine exactly what the best price was for my home.
Andrew helped me sell my home in Burnaby and purchase a property another, we had a few issues with financing and a couple of deals fell through but Andrew was always exceedingly patient, positive and helpful. Without Andrew I don’t know how I could have done it.
I will definitely enlist Andrew’s services the next time and I would not hesitate to recommend Andrew Szalontai to anybody looking for help purchasing a new home.Chris Cairns

“Could not have had a better agent, made my first time buying a delight. Also was impressed with the above and beyond service. Thanks Andrew!!”Winston Khng
I was really shocked, your no-nonsense presentation blew the other 4 realtors out of the water… hands down you’re my real estate agent for life now. Your list of ready buyers, the online marketing plan and your systematic approach to leveraging technology to have buyers in line at the open house was truly spectacular. The ability to drive demand on our house and sell for well over asking price with a subject-free offer had me overwhelmed with joy to feel comfortable knowing our next move could be afforded easily. Thank you so much.Jeff and Shalene Olsen
Andrew helped us to purchase our first home. He is all about providing excellent customer service and ensuring the process of buying a house was easy and stress free. He worked around his dedication to his customers, is admirable and very impressive. He was always positive and never pushy. He was always ready to assist in any way possible. I remembered I received his reply at 11 p.m. after I just sent an email 10 minutes prior. He was available to help us out even after the deal was closed. He was truly a professional and we felt he represented our best interests in helping us to buy our new home. If you are looking for an ethical, professional agent who listens to your needs, then Andrew is the one you should consider using for your real estate needs.Frank and Jill Wang
We broke the news to Andrew that we had to be out of our home in 6 weeks as we had job transfers. Andrew gave us the confidence that he could do this difficult task. To our surprise, he stepped up to the plate and got our home sold for 103.8% of the asking price in 6 days and we got our move out dates that we needed.Jason and Denyse Oimet
Right back at the start of the signing the listing, you told me to trust you Andrew. You ripped out carpet, repainted walls, basically rebuilt the bathroom… it was exciting and a little bit scary all at the same time. But then I saw the finished photos. I saw it on the internet and my mother didn’t believe it was my condo. $510,000 was my goal price, but $568,800 is still unbelievable. Thanks just doesn’t convey how I feel… so much appreciation for you.K Walton
Hi Andrew, I just wanted to write you a letter of heartfelt thanks for helping us achieve such an amazing sales result. The ways you helped us prepare and present our home made a stunning difference and to have 8 buyers offering their best offers to buy our home is something every home seller should experience. To achieve a result so far above our listing price means we have so many more options when it comes to buying our next home. So much appreciated.Jill Douse
Hi Andrew, You have done it again and again for me. All my other real estate agent friends are upset that I don’t use them. I gave them an equal opportunity to show me their marketing skills and I do have to say that without a doubt, you far exceed all others when you compare them all. All three of my homes sold within a couple weeks and well over asking price for much more than I expected. It’s a no-brainer to choose you to sell my homes. Thank you.Peter Botica
Andrew, We know that your recent hearing loss impeded your ability to hear, however it didn’t stop you from being able to communicate with the other realtor and seller to secure a great offer. We are still not sure how you got us a below-market-value price with competing offers. The positive buying experience was so much more than we expected, thank you. The house is exactly what we dreamed of and hoped for, to raise our family in a great neighbourhood and schools. You have earned a new-found respect from our family, we are always recommending you to friends and family when they need the Kingpin of real estate to help them. So glad you can now hear our funny jokes again.Jeff and Shalene Olsen
