Success Stories


Don was recommended to my mom by a friend of hers. He took the time to meet my mom, my brother and myself. During those meetings, he explained his approach to selling and what to expect from his services. He set out clear expectations on what he could offer and what he needed from us. Don worked with us to get the condo ready for selling and offered advice as needed during that process. Once the condo was ready to list, he was efficient with its marketing. We really appreciated how good he made it look with the virtual staging and listing brochure. Don offered services pre listing, during the listing and sale that went beyond expectation. Working with Don was a painless experience and we would highly recommend his services as both a selling and buying agent.

We can't say enough about our experience with Don Evanson as a realtor. Professional, personable and attentive, Don listened to us and together we set a reasonable price for our place and after one open house, we had an offer which ultimately became a deal that we are very happy with. We would recommend Don to anyone.

I was impressed with Don's work before even asking him to help me sell my house by looking at how professionally he performed at his open houses. Working with him was a pleasure as he is very knowledgeable, innovative, full of resources and kind. His advice and lovely marketing materials make me very confident to list my place on the market. Don sold my place just as I needed; quickly and with attention to every detail. Furthermore, Don treated me respectfully and patiently listened to every question, concern or feedback I had. Therefore, I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a great realtor!

We found out about Don through relatives and some friends who had used Don to sell their houses. Everything we heard was positive, so I contacted Don, had a long conversation and was immediately impressed with his work ethic and the effort he was willing to put in. No task seemed to be too difficult. We started the process, and Don pulled out all the stops using everything in his arsenal to sell our house. He was very thorough, professional and attentive to every detail of the sale. Well, it paid off and the house was sold in record-breaking time, and we didn’t really want to spend the whole summer dealing with the sale of a house. All in all, we were very happy with Don’s professionalism and would highly recommend him to anyone selling their home… he gets the job done.

His attention to detail and perfect vision for staging really helped in showing the house to its best potential.  His knowledge and expertise are second to none. He is smart and professional.

We had a great experience working with Don. He sold our property quickly and professionally. Don was communicative, attentive, and offered expert guidance throughout the process. We highly recommend them to anyone looking for a top-notch realtor.

Don provided the Estate of the property I was Executor for with the needed support for a smooth property sale. He conducted his work efficiently and with skill, in a friendly and low-pressure way. His marketing of the property was excellent and resulted in strong and timely results, even though the market had moved into a very soft cycle. His ability to communicate effectively, patiently, and clearly was most helpful right up to close. Don's real estate work with me as Executor was dependable and knowledgeable; he was a pleasure to work with. I can gladly recommend Don for serious consideration in similar real estate transactions.

Don Evanson achieved what could very well have been impossible. Because of Don's hard work and his thorough knowledge of real estate, our house sold in a very difficult market. It was the end of July 2022 when Don was recommended to us. House prices were plummeting and sellers were reconsidering: should we sell now or later? By showing us comparisons of similar properties in our area, Don suggested that a slight adjustment in the asking price would be beneficial. We agreed, and the house was sold for a very satisfactory price in less than 12 days. Throughout, Don explained very well all the intricacies of a real estate deal. He was patient, and generous with his time, answering every question we asked. He was tireless in his pursuit of a sale, once walking door to door to hand out professionally prepared flyers advertising our home. He even employed a drone operator to show the advantages of our neighbourhood from the air. With the sale complete, Don continued to assist us in many ways, bringing packaging materials when we needed them. He brought keys to the house and let the cleaners in when we were away. He rang us regularly to see whether there was anything more he could do for us. Nothing was too much trouble. We would recommend Don Evanson to anyone wanting to sell their home. He is the best! Thank you Don.

It was a pleasure to work with Don, who helped me sell my home and purchase a new one within a short time frame. Don demonstrated expertise and professionalism and worked hard to sell my home. Additionally, Don had a strong grasp of what I was looking for in a new home and helped me quickly find the perfect place for me. The whole process could have been much more stressful, but it felt smooth and enjoyable with Don as my realtor. I would happily work with Don again in the future and recommend him to others.

Don was a pleasure to work with. He did a great job promoting our property. Thank you for navigating us through the whole process. We appreciate the help.

I found Don Evanston to be very professional, easy to talk to, listened to our concerns and worked hard to sell our home. Would definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to sell their home. The staging and photos for the brochures were also first class. Lots of details included also. Happy to write this so Don knows we appreciated his hard work.

Don came to help us through a recommendation of a family member who was delighted with his scrupulous work. Since then he has become an amazing source of support, information and connections to all the necessary professionals. His advice, well thought out and timely, resulted in the rapid sale at a great price for us. We are very impressed by his steadfast drive to attend to every detail to create a positive experience.

We are very pleased with our outcome and Don’s tenacious drive to market and sell our home. He helped us purchase a property a few months ago. He aided us through a multiple offer market and got the property. We then listed our family home with him. Don was patient with us as we got the house ready to sell. He covered every possible detail, from staging the house, marketing every detail, and finally negotiating multiple offers. We sold above list price, and couldn’t be happier. Thank you Don, we highly recommend you as a realtor.


Andrew & Kelly Keen



We are so grateful to have had Don as our realtor. He went above and beyond and helped us every step of the way through the sale of our home. His vision and preparedness were the keys that lead to our exceptional outcome!


Kevin & Shelly Jones

As your realtor, Don will be your fiercest advocate. He far exceeded our expectations and sold our home in one day during a challenging market. He works tirelessly for his clients up until closing and beyond - whether it's researching, getting your home list ready, negotiating with buyers, or working with lawyers to make sure everything goes smoothly at closing. I could go on and on about all the ways Don was there for us through the process and we can't say enough about the wonderful experience we had working with Don. Professional, friendly, knowledgeable, and very easy to work with. Thank you Don!

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, which 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.

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.


Cathy Wright



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 the 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.


Mat & Brooke Zadvorny



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 its 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 the list price!  I wouldn't hesitate to hire Don Evanson to represent me for future sales and I am more than 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.

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.


Shane P.



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.


Barbara Daly



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,
Cathy R.



We have dealt with numerous realtors in the past and we would rank Don Evanson to be the best. We are not familiar with the 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.


N & E Yap



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 by 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 who goes the extra mile for the client.


Jay Nestorov

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.

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.


Kelly K.



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 upcoming listings and arranged countless showings. Never once gave up on us when we couldn’t decide, he would just work 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. Thanks Don!!!
