I would like to take a minute to say how pleased I am with the level of commitment and service I received from Mr. Don Evanson during the process of selling my most valuable asset - my home in Surrey.
Don and I started talking months before actually listing the home, looking at the market, strategizing how best to market my home, tracking down documentation that would prove invaluable during the sales process. He was always extremely generous with his time and professional advice. At no time did I feel pressured or neglected. Don always evoked a strong sense of professionalism and a calm demeanour that assured me, he was the right person for the job. That translated to a strong relationship, that in turn led to a very satisfactory sale, in what was considered a difficult market.
Don listened carefully to my needs from the very beginning, and at no time during the process let me down - he knocked it out of the park on all levels. Dealing with difficult buyers, again, Don showed incredible patience and professionalism – I am thankful he was on my side.
Don stepped up again as I headed towards the purchase of my new home in a new city. He always made himself available with his sage advice and words of wisdom even though he was not representing me in the purchase.
I wish Don the very best in his career going forward and would not hesitate to recommend him to friends and family.
I recently sold a house in White Rock. I was extremely pleased with my listing agent, Don Evanson.

I recently sold a condominium in South Surrey using Don Evanson as my Realtor.
I found Don to be personable, knowledgeable, thorough and friendly.
He answered my questions honestly and promptly and made me feel at ease during the offer / counter-offer process.
He gladly addressed any and all concerns I had.
With Don's professional guidance, I sold my condo for FULL ASKING price!
Don works hard to ensure his clients are beyond satisfied, I recommend his services wholeheartedly.
It’s stressful selling your house of 42 years. Don is very professional, he made the process seem relatively simple. I would highly recommend him to anyone considering selling. As I mentioned he really knows his stuff, more importantly he is such a nice person. If we ever sell again I would use him-in a heartbeat.
Don was an absolute pleasure to work with during the sale of our townhouse. He's professional, very hardworking, and his attention to detail is second to none. He was always available for any questions we may have had, and helped us through the whole process from start to finish. We sold our townhouse within 5 days of listing, and got well over asking price. We would definitely work with Don in the future, and would highly recommend him to anyone who wants to work with a realtor who is passionate, knowledgeable and dedicated to his clients.

My sisters and I worked with Don Evanson and his team for the estate sale of our Mothers condo in Langley City. Don was extremely knowledgeable, professional and easy to work with. Don advised us on the most effective, simple and cost efficient updates for the unit that resulted in the most return when we sold. His suggestions were bang on and made the unit show at it's best when it hit the market. The photos Don produced for our listing were AMAZING and showcased the most appealing features of the condo to prospective buyers. In the end, Don sold the unit within a week of listing and for a substantial amount over list price! I wouldn't hesitate to hire Don Evanson to represent me for future sales and I am more then happy to recommend his services to friends and family. Thank you Don for your expertise to make this emotionally difficult sale easy and successful for our family.
Don sold my condo during the first weekend it was on the market. It sold well above asking with competing offers. Don was there working with me every step of the way. He gave me good staging suggestions, power washed my deck, and even helped me move furniture. He explained each step of the process so l could make informed decisions. He is a good team player… and a great realtor. I am thankful that he worked so hard on my behalf. l now recommend him to my friends when they think of selling.
It's hard to believe that it's finally done and it is thanks to the efforts of so many people... and for sure through all the hard work and dedication and patience from you Don! Again we appreciate your professionalism and support of our Dad. You seemed to understand right from the start what a huge deal this was for him. Moving on to the next chapter of his life, without our mom, was much more than just "selling his home” and your sensitivity to this was evident in your interactions with him and your inclusion of him on pertinent matters. It was a team effort and I know sometimes coaching us was not without its frustrations :) Thanks for being an important member of the team and helping us win!
Thanks again for helping us with this project. Your kindness will not be forgotten.
With much appreciation,
We have dealt with numerous realtors in the past and we would rank Don Evanson to be the best. We are not familiar with Surrey area and it proved to be a good decision to work with Don as our realtor. He provided us with comprehensive market information and he took a lot of time to show us areas that are tailored to our requirements. He is very professional, highly knowledgeable, responsive, patient and a good negotiator looking after our best interest. He helped us with everything after the purchase was concluded and after we have moved in to make sure we are comfortable have all the information we needed. We cannot thank him enough for everything he did for us.
We are very happy with Don Evanson and will highly recommend him for all real estate needs.

We are so pleased that we decided to have Don be our realtor for our first ever home sale. His professionalism, hard work, and dedication resulted in our home being sold within days of hitting the market for more than we had imagined. He was sensitive to the fact that we had a young child and a shift worker at home and made every effort to work around our schedule. We will most definitely be seeking Don’s assistance in purchasing a new home in the future and will be recommending his services to all of our family and friends. Thanks Don! Looking forward to working with you in the near future!

I have to say my experience with Don Evanson was excellent. I was forced to sell my mother's mobile home after she was unable to care for herself any longer. One experience I would have liked to not have had.
Don was excellent in explaining the sale of a property (I had not sold a property before). He promoted the sale with posting photos on the net and holding several open houses. He even gave away chocolates at them. I should say that I live in Prince George and the sale took place in Surrey. The closing documents very well expedited. I would most certainly deal with Don again if I was selling or buying a property. Oh and he does have a sense of humour too.
Don went above and beyond. When he wasn't sure of something he said so and found out. He didn't pretend to know information. Service continued past the closing date. Appeared to truly care about the purchaser.
An excellent real estate agent and a person, goes beyond the extra mile for the client.
Don's commitment to his clients, innovative ideas, and perseverance helped us find our family home which met all of our needs, wants, and then some. This was no easy feat in this aggressive market. He guided us to strike a healthy balance between putting in an offer that while competitive, was still within our budget. In the end it was the professional relationship he developed with the selling realtor and the way that he personally presented our offer to the sellers that allowed our offer to be accepted (and with conditions!) despite higher offers having also been received. For both us as buyers, and the sellers, Don's personal touch humanized the sale in a market driven by low inventory, high demand, and multiple over asking offers.

We have bought and sold several homes and have never received such outstanding service as we did from Don Evanson. The recent sale of our condo, in a retirement home, was a very complicated process and Don handled it very professionally. This sale was much more complicated than selling a house and when we had questions, Don sought out answers. We really didn't think we would ever find a buyer in such a select market. Don's innovative marketing and advertising ideas really impressed us and generated interest from prospective buyers, resulting in a SALE.
He really went the extra mile on our behalf!
I recently found myself without a realtor and looking for a new condo to purchase. I stumbled upon an open house and immediately fell in love with the unit. Not having a realtor, I asked if the listing agent, Don Evanson, would write up the offer for me. Unfortunately I was not the only offer and missed out, but I was so impressed with Don's knowledge, professionalism, and attention to detail that I asked if he would assist me with my search for a new home, And so our journey began. What he didn't know was how particular I was going to be in my search. There were countless viewings and endless questions along the way and Don was immediately on top of all of them, even going above and beyond what would be expected. So impressed! His guidance and support made this adventure not only an easy one, but a great one! I highly recommend Don and his expertise if you are in the market for a new home or selling your existing one. The best decision I ever made was enlisting Don's help.
Don Evanson is “Your Realtor for Life”
Thank you Don for expediting the sale of our Condo in Langley so quickly. Your attention to detail and advice helped us prepare for the sale, and we appreciate all that you did to get the condo sold in less than a week. It was fantastic when you called and said, ‘We've got an offer on the Condo!’, unfortunately, we were away on vacation. Your patience and guidance allowed a seamless transaction, and didn’t disrupt our vacation.
We are very pleased with all you did for us, and would gladly recommend your services.

My wife and I weren’t sure where to go and we looked in different communities in the Fraser Valley. During this time Don worked with us on finding a home. His true dedication and patience with us showed. I have to say he worked hard for us and gave us honest and valued input on each home we saw. Day by day he informed us on up coming listings and arranged countless showings. Never once gave up on us when we couldn’t decide, he would just worked harder. He truly believed he would find us that special home in the right location and schools. Today, our family lives in that special home which we love and all thanks to Don. We will definitely use Don for any future real estate dealings.
