Testimonial

Kitamura testamonial

Sellers Michael & Patricia Kitamura recently sold a home in the area. Here is what they had to say about working with the Platinum Real Estate Team:

“We were skeptical at first when Eric told us he wouldn’t be advertising our home in the weekly newspaper and only use the internet to market his properties through his website and social media campaigns. To our pleasant surprise, there was immediate and sustained interest in our home as the showings did not slow down until we received an accepted offer. We actual received three offers before deciding on the one that best served our needs. Eric told us we could get more for our home and we did! Interested parties came from as far away as Tumbler Ridge and Calgary. This was the first time we sold in 40 years and were not sure what to really expect, but Eric was extremely helpful and patient in navigating us through the experience of selling our home. We could not have been more pleased with Eric and how the sale came together. Thank you! Eric.”
