The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to show you their correspondence. Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my down-to-earth and honest approach has earned me many friends - I think that's fantastic!
Exceeded my expectations!
Lindsie exceeded my expectations. I met her at an open house she was showing (agent-less and new to the process of home-buying). She is warm and personable but thoroughly pursued and investigated any issues or questions I had from the beginning of the process to the end. She was able to deal with other realtors and opinionated family members graciously and professionally. Lindsie was always responsive and available for viewings and other appointments. She understood the market and the neighbourhood I was hunting in. Often she knew about buildings and their condition before I even viewed them. She wasn't afraid to tell me if it was "bad" or "good" and was always giving me updates on homes I was interested in. Her advice at the time of my purchase was totally invaluable and after the offer had been accepted she was still present and helpful (even after I was given the keys).

Lindsie sold my condo in Hastings Sunrise
Lindsie is a super talented real estate whiz! She calmed my nerves on a daily basis, making a stressful experience calm and actually fun. Her professionalism and real estate know-how made me feel like I was in the most capable hands (because I was!). I have already recommended her with no qualms to everyone I talk to who is thinking about buying or selling.

She takes the time to understand your needs.
Lindsie helped us find our family's perfect first home in Vancouver's very difficult housing market. As first-time homebuyers, we found it very reassuring that she took the time to understand our needs and to guide us through each step. Her instincts and experience with the market were extremely helpful, from suggesting neighbourhoods to strategically making an offer - all the while being very respectful of our budget. With Lindsie's guidance and understanding of the market, we were lucky enough to find our first home within a couple of weeks! In the end, we made a new friend as well. We highly recommend Lindsie!

Even the Seller's agent told us what an excellent realtor we had!
Lindsie represented us in the purchase of our house in East Vancouver. She was flexible and accommodating with arranging viewings and providing feedback and advice. When we found the house we wanted to buy her biggest talents became apparent: she is a master at deal-making, and she devised a strategy to get us the best outcome from the situation (helping us to avoid a bidding war), then managed us and the seller's agent to execute it. Most impressive of all, she carefully managed the flow of information to us so as not to overwhelm us, or allow our emotions to get the better of us. Even the seller's agent told us what an excellent realtor we had! I cannot recommend her work more highly, and will definitely use her for our next real estate transaction.

Instrumental in helping us buy our perfect home!
My wife and I finally found the perfect home for us, but so did 34 other prospective buyers. Having Lindsie on our team meant that we were equipped with the information and advice we needed to formulate a plan that not only kept us in the running during a very intense bidding process, but ultimately landed us the home we've always wanted.
During the very short timeframe we had to view the house and make an offer, Lindsie was there with us during the open house to help assess how the house actually matched up to our wishlist, helped us understand and plan around the findings of the home inspection, and was instrumental in making an offer that got noticed.
The best part is that even after coming out victorious in such a hot bidding war, we feel like we got a great deal and can't wait to grow old in our new home.

Honesty, Integrity and a Skilled Negotiator
Honesty and integrity were the two most important qualities I wanted in a realtor when I was selling my condo, looking for another and then subsequently purchasing. Not only did Lindsie fulfill my top criteria in every segment of the journey, but she also demonstrated other very important skills such as experience, knowledge of the market and negotiation. She was reliable and accessible by promptly returning texts/phone calls and showing up on time for showings/meetings. Her friendly, patient manner made me feel comfortable asking any question. She also really listened to what I wanted, so time was not wasted looking at properties that were not suitable. My entire experience of buying and selling was positive because of Lindsie's professionalism; therefore I do not hesitate to recommend her. Assuredly you would be in good hands.

In Depth Knowledge of Vancouver schools!
Lindsie's dedication to her work is second to none. We worked with her for over half a year, selling our condo and purchasing a house. Lindsie's attention to detail and hands on approach was invaluable in helping us find our way through the intimidating Vancouver real estate market. One of the elements of her service that stood out as unique for us was her in depth knowledge of the education system in Vancouver. As young parents, we obviously wanted to make sure we bought into a neighbourhood that would be good for our newborn son's future education and socialization. Lindsie's expertise in this area was instrumental, guiding us towards the purchase of the home we now live in and love. Thanks, Lindsie!!!

Dedicated, smart and passionate!
We have recently purchased our first home and we feel very lucky that we had such an exceptional realtor with us. Dedicated, smart and passionate, Lindsie provided us with all the information we needed, especially as first time home buyers, to make informative and confident decisions throughout the process. She quickly understood our needs and found the best options in the market that met our expectations and budget. Lindsie did a great job helping us assess different options and also closing the deal. If you are looking for an honest, patient, responsible and thoughtful realtor, we highly recommend her. Lindsie is a very talented professional.

Lindsie truly listens!
Lindsie was the first realtor I talked with after moving to Vancouver, and boy, did she get it right. I’d been looking on my own for a while because I’d had previous experience in a different city with realtors who didn’t listen to my needs or tried to push something on me that I didn’t want. Before we started looking, Lindsie gave me a comprehensive and realistic look at what was reasonable and affordable in my price range based on my “must haves” and the location I wanted. I really appreciated how when we hit barriers in terms of my must haves and budget, she helped me problem solve those key issues before we started looking, which helped me immensely in preparing for the process and knowing what I could expect in my price range.
I think it’s a testament to Lindsie’s ability to truly listen to and read her clients that I ended up buying the first place I saw with her. She really listened to what I wanted and needed, and was able to meet those needs right away… almost too fast! :) I am so happy with my new condo and am eternally grateful to Lindsie for guiding me through the process and making it as easy and stress free as possible.
Knowledgeable about Vancouver neighbourhoods!
Downsizing from my big house and property on the Sunshine Coast into my first condo in the City, was both exciting and scary, but Lindsie was the perfect person for the job. She listened carefully to all of my "must haves", educated me about different neighbourhoods and guided me through the process of buying my first condo (which really is different than buying a house!) I didn't know anything about stratas or maintenance fees, but she patiently explained everything. She was always available to answer my questions and I am loving my new condo in my new neighbourhood! Thanks Lindsie!
As first time buyers, Lindsie was a great help. She helped guide us through the process which made the entire experience a lot more manageable. Her knowledge of not just our area but Vancouver in general was key to us winning a difficult bid war. We got the place we've always wanted thanks to her professionalism and expertise.

Friendly, dedicated and honest!
As first-time homeowners, we needed a lot of guidance and reassurance throughout the purchasing process, and Lindsie provided plenty of both! She always made time to answer our questions, offer honest advice, and keep us calm in the midst of this crazy market. We have no doubt her knowledge, experience, and enthusiasm helped us secure the first bid we made! We highly recommend Lindsie to anyone needing a friendly, dedicated realtor who will be a true advocate from start to finish.

Lindsie was wonderful to work worth from the start of the process of buying our first home to the end. One of our (many) must haves was staying in East Van, and we were amazed with her detailed knowledge of the area and the specific communities and properties. Her personal and professional approach to all aspects of buying our first home, from well informed opinions on property values to assistance understanding everything from financing to home inspections, relieved our stress and turned us into happy and excited home buyers! We really appreciated feeling like we had such a great realtor in our corner over the course of this process, truly looking out for our best interests as buyers. Based on our experience, I would highly encourage anyone who is thinking of buying a home to work with Lindsie (we will definitely be permanent clients). Thanks so much Lindsie for finding us our perfect home!

Fantastic agent in a crazy Vancouver market!
We were the casual real estate shopper in a crazy Vancouver market until we found the house we wanted. We called Lindsie and she was immediately available to help us. With her smart suggestions and prompt action, we were happy homeowners of our first house. Lindsie then helped us sell our condo. She gave us a very good assessment of our neighbourhood's selling market. Her creative idea of hosting a wine tasting for our open house resulted in multiple offers. She knew exactly how to showcase our condo to sell quickly and at the price we were hoping. Lindsie was easy to work with and we would definitely recommend her.

Lindsie worked incredibly hard for us while we tried to sell our False Creek condo. Because we had already moved out of province, Lindsie was left with the full responsibility of helping stage our unit, and manage our property so that it was always ready for showing. She held more open houses than we've ever heard of for our complex, and was very proactive when dealing with neighbour questions and concerns. Part way through our listing timeline, we decided to change an office into a bedroom and Lindsie rolled up her sleeves and built us a closet! Who could ask for more from a realtor?
We have worked with several realtors over the years and feel qualified to recommend Lindsie. She is hard working, courteous, organized, punctual, has a good eye for decor, and an ability to empathize with your unique circumstances. She deserves top marks. We feel very fortunate to have had her list and sell our home.

Great Communicator and Negotiator!
I recently purchasesd a small and light filled condo in Kitsilano. It has all the features I was looking for; it is bright, well laid out ,has green spaces out front and most importantly it allows my two beloved dogs to live there!
My home used to be in Sechelt and buying into the Vancouver Real estate Market was a very unnerving prospect for me.... Until I made contact with Lindsie Tomlinson.
Lindsie is friendly, open and reassuringly competent. Communicating with Lindsie was easy, she quickly and effectively did the market research for me and within a week I had found what I was hoping for.
The contract negotiations were conducted promptly and Lindsie communicated with me at every turn. It was all so much easier than I had expected!
I highly recommend Lindsie to anyone who wants to buy their home at the right price, in the right location and stay relaxed throughout.
Thank you, Lindsie
