Testimonial – May and Victor

“We are so pleased with Dave and Alison with our purchases of a condo and a townhome in Whistler.  We contacted Dave out of the blue in Spring 2016 with very little idea of what we were looking for.  He was very patient as we considered our options.  He also put us in touch with Alison, who helped us narrow down our search and then kept us informed of listings that met our criteria.  Alison is very thoughtful, helpful and fair … never pressuring us to take on more than we felt comfortable with.  Dave and Alison both know the Whistler market very well and it shows in their recommendations of listings to view and the prices they negotiated for us.  Because of our great experiences with them, we ended up buying two properties in Whistler in a span of six months.  They made the processes smooth from beginning to end, and even took the extra effort to take care of some small inconveniences after closing.  We highly recommend Dave and Alison to anyone thinking of buying or selling real estate in Whistler.” ~ May and Victor

“We originally contacted Dave around 3 years ago when we put an offer on a cabin at Gun Lake.  Unfortunately that deal fell through, but I was amazed at Dave’s skill as a realtor.  3 years later we bought 2 condos as an investment in Whistler and I would not have worked with anyone else.  Dave and Alison were very organized with all the documentation and paperwork needed to complete the deal, and being from out of town, they made it easy to complete.  The one thing I really admire is that with Dave’s superior knowledge of the market he was able to get us the best possible deal, never once did he ask us to raise an offer, he stood by what he thought was a fair market price.  I would recommend Dave and Alison to anyone.” ~ Trevor and Andrea

“We had such a great experience with Dave and Alison, selling our one bedroom town home.  The documentation process was simple.  The negotiation benefited greatly from Dave’s thorough understanding of the market and fully explaining the buyers requests.  We could not be happier with the sale going through and recommend this team to you.”  ~ Gillian and Munny

Testimonial – Paula and David

“After deciding to list our home in Whistler, I made a series of phone calls to agents and companies in the area that we have noticed over the years and ones who have been recommended to us.  After meeting with Dave initially, I was certain this was  the person we wanted to help us with selling our home.  Dave and his assistant Alison are a wonderful seamless team.  We immediately felt at ease throughout the process of listing, pictures, discussing Marketing and showings.  Listing our home was a difficult decision but Dave and Alison made each step easy. Dave was great to talk things over with and his advice was thoughtful, professional and bang on. Communication was excellent right through to the offer and subsequent sale/close.  We would highly recommend Dave to anyone looking for a Real Estate professional.” ~ Paula and David

“Dave and Alison really get it. They deal with busy people, making big decisions every day and its reflected in the type of service they offer. We were buying a condo for staff housing, so it wasn’t a huge emotional investment for us. They understood our needs, presented us with just the right options, were professional, on top of the details, and got the deal done quickly and painlessly. They also linked us with other professionals we’d need in the process. In short, it couldn’t have gone better.” ~ Danielle Kristmanson

‘Dave came recommended through a friend – and it was a true pleasure working with both Dave and his team. He quickly understood our needs and had excellent insights into the local areas and communities. The result was perhaps one of the swiftest and easiest completions we have ever had!’ ~ Oliver and Jessica

Testimonial – Nicole and Tony

‘We recently purchased a Townhouse in Whistler and were very happy with the guidance we got from both Dave and Alison. We weren’t really sure what we wanted and Dave helped us narrow our search by helping us determine what was most important. He was patient, professional, and very down to earth. Once we found the right place he gave us excellent advice and negotiated fairly. We are thrilled with our new “home away from home” and would highly recommend Dave and Alison to anyone looking to purchase a place at Whistler’ ~ Nicole and Tony

Whistler Real Estate – 2016 Year to Date Sales Stats

2016 has been a record breaker year for real estate in Whistler. Selling conditions are as favorable as they have been in over 15 years.

Increased sales activity and a steady increase in values has been seen across all segments of the Whistler market this year. There are no signs of slowing, as we approach the ski season (with a huge amount of early season snow!)

Year to date Sales Statistics to the end of the 3rd Quarter:

Anybody with an interest in Whistler real estate is watching how (1) the new Whistler Blackcomb ownership structure and (2) the current ‘stall’ in the historically active Vancouver market will effect the Whistler real estate market. However, the continued high level of buyer interest, the forecasts for visitor number for the winter season, and the continued attractive Canadian dollar are all indicating that we will not see a change in the current conditions in the near future.

Please call Dave with any questions on these statistics and current market conditions and to discuss how this accelerated Whistler real estate market may effect you and your Whistler real estate.

“My recent condo purchase in Whistler was made smooth and easy with the invaluable help of Dave Burch and Alison Bradford. They both made me feel like I was their most important client. They efficiently answered any query and solved every concern, either using their vast expertise or through quick and accurate research and investigation. The next home I buy or sell in Whistler will go through them.” ~ Hayley

“I recently worked with Dave and his assistant Alison to buy a condominium in Whistler. Though I love visiting,   I live over 2000 miles away, so it was with their help that I completed the whole process, from search to purchase, long distance. Dave’s help was enormously helpful throughout – from honing in on the right properties, to navigating the bidding process and closing the sale. Alison, his assistant, was invaluable because of her attention to detail, great communication skills and her thorough follow through. I’d highly recommend Dave and his team to anyone looking for Real Estate services in Whistler.” ~ Caroline Curran

Testimonial – Mary and Marcel

“We were very impressed with Dave Burch and his team. From the beginning we were kept up to date and informed about everything concerning the sale of our home. They frequently advertised in the local paper and sent us copies of these ads, held open houses and provided feedback after all showings. The dedication and concern was exceptional and we would highly recommend them.” ~ Mary and Marcel

Building Lots For Sale Near Whistler

Take a look at the opportunities below, get ahead of the crowd, and let me know if you want to be on the list for any of the upcoming developments:

Close to some of Whistler’s best mountain bike trails.
