  • Brian and Harry were our realtors when we were looking to purchase our first home. As first time buyers we had lots of questions and they took the time to answer all of them and make sure we understood the ins and outs of owning your first home. Thank you to you both for helping us find our perfect first home!

  • We had the pleasure of working with Brian this past spring when we were searching for our home. Brian proved to be very experienced, hard-working, and extremely knowledgeable about the Metro Vancouver real estate market. He conducted business with the highest degree of ethics, always kept us informed, promptly returned our messages or phone calls and even acted as a sounding board when frustrations with the market emerged. No request was too much for him – he always went the extra mile for us, and in fact, exceeded our expectations of the ‘client-realtor’ relationship. Without a doubt, we were well-represented and would highly, highly recommend him to anyone searching for a home.

  • Selling my home was not a problem. Brian and Harry were my Realtors. They made a list of activities. The schedule included the complimentary market evaluations in my residential area. This knowledge gave them an opportunity to apply excellent sales and negotiation skills. They gave honest advice and professional service to my daughter, son and me. I had no hesitation to accept the schedule of activities.The result was that many potential buyers attended three open house days. This completed the sale in record time. Brian Elsey and Harry Ratchford love and know their Realtors business. They have excellent sales skills, information and resources. In buying and selling, customer service is their priority.

  • Brian Elsey was my realtor when I purchased my first home in Tsawwassen and being a first time buyer I needed guidance which Brian was more than willing to provide. He gave us expert advice and went above and beyond when it came to making sure we found the home that would suit all our needs. Thank you Brian and Harry for your professionalism and patience in helping us find our home.

  • We found Harry and Brian a great team to work with and do not hesitate in recommending them for any real estate transactions that you may have. They sold our house in Vancouver and helped us relocate in Tsawwassen during a time when the market was extremely active. They have years of experience, act with integrity and give friendly helpful advice. We heard on more than one occasion "you can't go wrong with Harry and Brian".

    - Richard and Linda
  • I had the pleasure of using Brian for my townhouse purchase. As a first time homebuyer Brian and Harry worked diligently to educate me on the market and all the various upcoming steps. Both Brian and Harry made me feel comfortable throughout the process and didn't rush me into any decisions. Their immense attention to detail enabled me to be confident in my decision. It was nice dealing with two men who were genuinely concerned with my well being throughout the process. Their honesty and integrity were unmatchable and I would highly recommend their services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

  • The excellent team of Brian and Harry steered us into a solid deal, taking us around some difficult problems via creative solutions. At one point Brian went door-to-door putting out flyers to seek the right place for us! Adapting our search to the lower mainland coming from the BC interior was a process and we had to purchase a home before selling. Brian and Harry were consistently available, flexible and committed as we explored various options within our budget. We recommend them with full confidence in their ethics and ability

    - John and Victoria
  • "We had the great fortune of having Brian as our Realtor when we purchased our condo. Brian was willing to incur the challenges of working with us long distance as we were relocating from out of province. Even though the situation required extra effort on his part, Brian never made us feel as though it was an inconvenience. He was efficient, accommodating and professional. It was a true pleasure to work with Brian and we will definitely refer friends and family to him".

    - Aleta and Brian
  • Brian and Harry recently sold our family home in Ladner. We were always impressed by their vast knowledge, admirable teamwork and great communication skills. They seamlessly worked together holding open houses every single weekend, as well as doing many showings, keeping us well informed each time. We would highly recommend this top-notch team who would provide expertise and friendly professionalism, and would be willing to go that extra mile for you, just as they did for us!!!

    - Dan and Eleanor
  • My wife and I had the good fortune of dealing with Brian and Harry on the purchase of an investment property a few years ago. We were very impressed with their character, approach, and fine service during and after the completion of this transaction! As a result of this very positive experience, we just recently called upon them again to assist us in finding a retirement property for my wife’s aged parents. Once again, they came through for us with their professional approach and seasoned real estate skills to guide us in finding and securing the perfect property for our family. It was a great pleasure working with them on both these transactions, and we look forward to using their real estate expertise again in the future!

  • "We listed our apartment with Brian, as he was recommended to us. We were provided with first class service and guidance. Brian and Harry's advice was knowledgeable and helpful and we would be glad to recommend them to others".

    - Jack and Shirley
  • "When shopping for a home in BC, we were also remotely (from Alberta) shopping for a Realtor to partner with. The information on Harry & Brian’s website was extremely thorough, and well presented. It was so good that we started shopping for houses on their site, as they were presented in such a useful way for us. Once we met the duo in person - we knew we had made the right choice. With limited time to shop in BC, Harry and Brian planned and executed with precision and detail. In two days, we understood so much about the Lower Mainland, South Delta, and ultimately Tsawwassen. They were knowledgeable, thorough, tireless, patient, and confident: they made the often stressful experience fun - and they found us a gem of a home. Thanks for your tireless dedication and professionalism. You made it fun, and we love our new home! We couldn’t have done it without you. Thanks Brian & Harry!"

  • “Brian and Harry were my Realtors on two occasions. One was for the sale of my Richmond Condo and the other was for the purchase of my home in Ladner. I first met Brian at an open house in Richmond. I was impressed with his manner. Though he was interested in selling the home he was selling, he appeared more interested that the sale be the right fit. When I sold my Apartment in Richmond, I contacted Brian and Harry; they ensured the listing was made available to all Realtors. Both Harry and Brian were doing open houses, and when we were caught with the falling condo market, acting quickly to adjust the price. The apartment sold quickly. I called Brian, advised him of the house in Ladner, he made the arrangements to view it. Without any pressure he called two days later, mentioned there was some interest in the house and maybe we should think about an offer. I put the offer in. Harry went through the house, putting another set of eyes on the property. Working like a team, when the offer was going back and forth, it was Brian and Harry working on the sale. The purchase went through without a hitch. It is easy to act as the buying agents, but the test is when you are the selling agents. In both situations, I can say I was impressed with Harry’s and Brian’s professionalism. I have mentioned their names to friends and if I were buying or selling, I would not hesitate to contact them again.”

  • "As a former Realtor I quickly realized we had found a team that had the integrity, work ethic and professional approach we wanted. Brian and Harry outdid themselves in providing for our family's special requirements in a home. We would have no hesitation in enlisting their help again".

    - Dan
  • "We chose Brian and Harry to help us buy our first home in Canada, and as newcomers to the country we really did not know where to start. Brian was very helpful and patient guiding us though all the turns and pitfalls of buying a home. The home we finally purchased is perfect for us and we could not be happier. We would use Brian and Harry again and would trust them fully".

    - Tim and Lisa
  • "Brian was our Realtor when we purchased a revenue property. He is very professional, and prompt in everything requested of him. A real pleasure to work with including the “British” humor".

    - Lynda
  • Brian and Harry were our Realtors when we were at a very bad time in our lives. We had to find a new home in Tsawwassen immediately and they were there right away and found us the perfect Condo. Their advice was priceless as was their integrity. They made a difficult situation easier and we would highly recommend these Gentlemen.

    - Rob and Jean
  • "I rate Brian Elsey and Harry Ratchford a GREAT DUO to buy or sell your home, they truly are the best! They not only service all of the regular community demographics all over BC but are now also specializing in catering to the large senior market. Both have excellent sales skills, information and resources at hand. While selling my condo they had 2 open houses each weekend plus numerous showings and gave me feedback on each occasion. They always asked if it would be convenient. They also ran large Ads in the Homes for Sale Section. “Thank you” just does not seem adequate to convey my great appreciation for a home sale well done by both of them in partnership!”
