Some Words from my Clients
Thank you Cory!
In only 4 days we found our home and the experience of the house hunting was a pleasure.
Cynthia and Gus
"....Living in our new house is fantastic, we are ecstatic to have made the decision to buy it, which would have not happened without your help. Truly, we do appreciate the guidance you gave us, in planning the selling of our townhome we had. We think you were honest and realistic in your recommendation, be it, preparation wise, marketing and follow up to make the sale happen. The incentive you gave us to use the professional staging company and the support you offered by bringing the photographer made a huge difference. Nevertheless the cherry on top was the listing price strategy; we do believe it was the key element that made things flow smoothly. On the other hand, your experience was key in working out the offer we put on the new house. Cory we looked at you as a real professional that cares for her clients and our hunch and trust was bang on. You will be our Realtor, number one, for any future business. It was great to work with you."
Guss and Rima
“Being a first time home buyer is a tremendous learing experience. Fortunately, I havea great teacher and Realtor in you! It was a wonderful experience working with you and I will always recommend you to any family or friend looking for Real Estate!”
"It was a pleasure working with you! You are very pleasant, thorough and detailed in your explanations. We think that you are also very professional and knowledgeable in what you do. If we decide to buy a new house in the future we will definately contact you. Thank you for helping us find this home, so far we like it very much!"
Vasiliy and Roza
"I found your services to be excellent and I was happy with the results!"
"Services were Fabulous!!"
"Cory was a great help in finding and purchasing my first home. Her communication was always excellent and she was willing to wait with me for the right place, a search that took almost six months. In the end, I think she was almost as excited as I was to find the place I eventually bought. Thank you again!"
"Cory has helped us and our family members to buy and sell 4 houses over the past few years. She is very professional, organized and a pleasure to deal with. We highly recommend her!"
Thomas and Jackie
“… 3 deals now with Cory and her staff. All were seamless, easy and straight forward. Last deal had a small hitch, Cory stepped up to the plate without question and applied integrity and patience and dealt with it. Problem solved! Great results, and that was what was most important. Thank you Cory!”
"...Thank you so much for assisting in the sale of my mother's property. This "estate" listing was labeled as "unique" and had problems other realtors were not prepared to deal with. Because of your patience, understanding, good business sense and you had our best interests in mind, there is no doubt we received more from the sale than had we hired any other realtor. My husband and I live in Alberta. We have bought and sold five homes and have never employed such a personable friendly, knowledgeable realtor. During the difficult months prior to the sale you kept us totally informed and updated via long distance calls and emails, something I truly appreciated. We can't thank you enough, Cory, and highly recommend you to anyone seeking to list their property."
"....Very good service. We appreciate your help!"
Nhon & Tina
"...Thanks so much for your hard work to sell our home on 1520 Como Lake Ave. What struck us most was that you consistently responded to all our requests in a very pleasant manner and came up with great ideas to solve any problems we had. You were never shy about suggesting ways to move our sale forward without ever making us feel your were pushy. From start to finish you displayed a professional yet friendly attitude and followed through on our behalf to protect our interests. We would recommend you to anyone wanting to sell their home or property and will certainly call you to sell our next home."
Rod & Rosemary
"....We thought your services were excellent. We were very pressed for time, as you were aware, and everything pulled together wonderfully. You were on top of all the paperwork and the "surprises" that popped up. You were a pleasure to deal with, always bubbly and with a positive attitude. Thank you so much for helping us to obtain our first home. We would recommend you to those in search of a good realtor, and again for ourselves. Thanks again"
Jacob & Kassy
"....I want to thank you for all the hard work in helping us find a home for our son and his fiancée. The two of them are ecstatic with the new home and are now in a position to move on with their new lives in the big city. Most importantly, your thoroughness and attention to detail was instrumental in helping us understand the melee of information from the vendor and developer. I have no idea how Annette and I would have coped without your professionalism and most of all your patience. We will be highly recommending your services to anyone we know that is looking to either buy a home or sell their home in the Vancouver region."
Winston & Annette
"....I just wanted to take a moment to say thank you on behalf of my family. I can't express enough, how much we appreciated Cory O'Brien as our mother's realtor. Living out of town, we were all certainly grateful to have had Cory handling not only the sale of my mother's house, but also the task of finding her a new place to call home. In beginning my mother was certainly skeptical of the whole real estate buying and selling process. It was certainly Cory's kind and capable nature that made both transactions flow smoothly. Cory was able to see when my mother had enough and was also able to motivate her when necessary. I cannot say enough to express our gratitude for all she has done. She is a very hardworking and motivated individual. Her upbeat personality is also certainly an asset to your agency. Cory takes the extra time to make sure that both buyer and seller are comfortable with the content of the purchase and understand it well. We appreciate the time and great effort that Cory took in helping our mother. We will certainly recommend her to our family and friends that wish to buy or sell in the future."
"....From the day we listed our home with Cory O'Brien of Royal LePage Showcase-Plus until the day we closed the door for the last time, Cory has given us excellent advice on how no prepare it for sale, referred us to terrific services providers, helped with all the details and offered endless support. It is hard to say enough good things about her cheerful, positive and encouraging approach to the sale of our home. In the process we felt like we had made a friend. It doesn't get better than that!"
Richard and Ruth
".....I was very pleased with your thoughtful and effective service and would highly recommend you to others."
"...Cory made the search for the perfect home for us very smooth and easy. Her extensive knowledge, attention to detail and excellent communication skills ensured a seamless process and a very successful result. I would highly recommend Cory, whether you're a first-time or experience home buyer ~ she provides warm, friendly and expert service."
"...You were a great help in helping us purchase our first home. Especially when we put you through so much. Just to name a few: the many all nighter meetings we had, the crazy attitudes & other unmentionable things we did. I hope in the future when we want to purchase our second, third or if possible fourth property that you would be there to lead the way. We still cant tell you how much your help has give us a boost when we were so down. Thank you again!!"
Jun & Alice
"...just wanted to thank you one more time for the sale of our house. Your dedication and professionalism from the listing to the final sale was just great. We were very impressed with the amount of Open houses you held, which lead to the sale of the house. Your energetic and enthusiastic outlook certainly made our transition from spending 33 years in our old home to our new home that much less stressful. We wish you all the best and if we ever have any real estate need in the future we will not hesitate in using your services."
Rich and Sherr
"..thank you for all your hard work you put into giving me good service. You are an inspiration on a personal level as well. I often thought aabout the challenges you had to go through in life and it gave me strength to try to look at things from a different perspective. Your presence and personality shows that love what you do and I wish you continued success both personally and professionally."
"Thank you for all your help! Your genuinely kind nature and world of patience are a
rare thing. We will miss you!"
"We want to compliment Cory O'Brien, realtor for Royal Lepage Showcase Plus, on selling our townhome within less than 3 weeks from our initial contact at a price that slightly exceeded our expectations. She was organized and efficient. She scouted out recent sales of similar townhomes to assist our pricing decision. She offered us excellent selling strategies. She obtained quality photographs that well-displayed our townhome. Cory was always on call and responded promptly to our questions. Her efficiency was enhanced by her positive, cheerful attitude. We would highly recommend her as a selling agent."
BW and David
"Just to say thank you for doing such a good job for us. I was so impressed with the way you handled the purchase - with all those people going through and waiting in the wings I'm sure our approac - with your advice - was absolutely the right one and gave us the edge.
Thank you again."
"Cory O'Brien has been our realtor for two sales and 1 purchase in the past 5 years. She is a true professional with real style! Cory stays up-to-date on the sales and trends in the market and pays close attention to detail. Everything went smoothly from the listing right through to and after the sale. Cory waas always available for consultation, even when out of town. In addition, Cory is a pleasure to work with, always upbeat with a great sense of humour. "If you want the job done right, Cory is the right real estate agent!"

Never once did I ever feel pressured...even though you were smoking busy, you made time for me...even after the sale was made you made time for all my questions and concerns..."
Natasha, Steve and Sable
"..how impressed I was with one of your Realtor Corinna. Being a first time home buyer, Corinna took the time to explain to me all the details involved in purchasing a home. She was able to find a wonderful new home for me. I would be more than happy to recommend Corinna to any of my friends and family..."
"...To anyone considering buying a home with Cory consider yourself well taken care of. Cory found us the perfect home in short notice and we were completely happy with the deal she struck on our behalf. Cory is a professional without being condescending towards you. She will explain everything to you clearly and conscisely so you have a total understanding of the entire purchasing procedure. I am perfectly comfortable recommending
Cory to any of my family or friends...."
"Corinna Gronning was excellent. She was extremely personable, efficient, patient and professional. She made my first purchase significantly easier and less stressful."
"...we appreciate all the help and patience in finding us an affordable house, sepecially for the continued commitment for our search with no pressure to buy...after a year of us looking for our first house your enthusiasm did not wane.
