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 actually 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.”

Ivan & Debi Wilson

Eric has been our realtor since 2004 when he helped us find the house we have called home for 13 years.

Three years ago we started looking for our perfect “retirement” home.  Eric worked very hard to help us achieve this goal.

After two failed attempts we decided to try one more time.  Not only did Eric help us find our retirement home but he was able to sell our house for $10,000. over asking in less than 24 hours.

It has been a pleasure to work with Eric when both buying and selling our homes He came highly recommended when we moved to Kamloops and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone needing to buy or sell in the Kamloops area.

Buyers Tim & Bev Doyle recently sold and bought a home in the area. Here is what they had to say about working with the Platinum Real Estate Team:

“Eric met with us a month in advance of our home being listed and laid out a strategic plan for our success in achieving a top dollar sale! Eric listened to our ideas and concerns and was flexible in incorporating them into his overall plan. Eric’s focus on having our home properly prepared prior to having his professional photographer over really helped separate us from our competition. Eric told us that prospective buyer’s first impression of our home would be made on-line and our home looked absolutely amazing on his website! We worked as a team and the work paid off as we sold our home in 36 hours for more than our asking price! We highly recommend Eric!”
