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.”

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 our homes presentation complete. Our home looked spectacular on-line 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.

Hilton

After having our house on the market for over 7 months with a different real estate agent, we decided to interview Eric and hired him immediately. We learned more in our initial meeting with Eric than our entire previous listing experience. Before re-listing Eric helped us prepare our home properly and had a professional photographer in to take photos. After listing with Eric at a slightly higher price than our initial asking price, our home sold in 17 days for 98.5% of asking price!! We are happy to refer all our friends and family to consider the Platinum Process Home Selling System and list with Eric Putoto
