Buyers Rick & Jaime Welch 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 explained his Platinum Process Home Selling System to us and we were immediately sold on the systems and strategies he wanted to execute to get our home sold for the top end of its value range. His advice on how to prepare our home was very helpful and the use of his professional photographer made the presentation of our home complete. Our home looked spectacular online and the showings came fast and frequent; as a result, we had an accepted offer in only 17 days for exactly what Eric had hoped to get for us! We are obviously very pleased and highly recommend Eric to anyone thinking of selling their home.

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.

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.”

     2736 Thompson, Kamloops

2736 Thompson Drive: This is a one of a kind waterfront home. What separates 2736 Thompson Drive from all other riverfront homes in Valleyview and Dallas are these 5 things:

  1. Elevation, this 5600sqft home on .47 of an acre is one of the highest pieces of property along the South Thompson River.
  2. Privacy, this property is lined on both sides with mature cedar trees and well above the river so that no one can see into the rear yard.
  3. Location, this home is located just minutes away from all levels of schooling, shopping, and all other amenities.
  4. Custom design, in 2005 this home was built over top the existing home that had been there since 1959. The floor plan is a perfect combination of open spaces and private areas so that large families can come together and seek quiet privacy when wanted….
