Judy is the consummate professional. She's also unassumingly brilliant.

(Yelp Review) Judy is the consummate professional. She's also unassumingly brilliant.
I cold-called three realtors and after thoroughly interviewing all of them decided to work with Judy for my transaction. She was the only one I met with the right mix of hard and soft skills.

The truth is, Judy was brilliant at negotiating. When we were making an offer, she knew what levers to pull and when. She put together an offer that included an incentive the seller hasn't even thought of - and then was able to meet it - in order to close the deal in our favour.
*cue slow clap*

Some things I noticed about Judy:

-She understands that TIME is the most valuable thing we all have - and I'm not just talking about the minutes for which you're paid. Being organized creates efficiency which is something I tremendously value.
-She has as a methodical approach to her work and communications
-She has the systems and tools for managing her time and priorities efficiently

Judy is likeable, approachable, and always a professional. Her skills and expertise in the real estate industry were evident from the very first meeting when she came fully prepared to discuss properties in my price range and the location I was interested. She was also patient when it came to answering questions and going out to view properties.

A potentially stressful experience turned out to be memorable and extremely positive from the beginning to the end. I'd recommend her to literally ANYONE in a heartbeat.

We couldn't be happier with our experience.

Judy has been our Realtor from the very beginning of our home-buying experience -- helping my husband & I find our first place together as newlyweds, and now 6 years later helping us sell our condo and find a home that fits the needs of our growing family. We couldn't be happier with our experience.


Judy cares genuinely about each and every one of her clients, she is hard-working, her attention to detail is unsurpassed, she is dedicated to helping her clients get the very best, whether it is buying or selling (or both!), and she has an astounding understanding of the ins & outs of the real estate business. She is kind and generous, and yet there is no question that she means business. Always professional, always attentive, there is absolutely no one else that we would rather have representing us in our real estate journey.

Patient and made herself available at a moments' notice.

We are very happy we chose Judy to help us sell our condo and purchase a house. She provided advice that helped us successfully stage our condo, and she was excellent at dealing with the buyers' realtor. When it came time for us to shop for our house, her knowledge of common problems allowed her to point out plumbing and other problems that saved us from making the wrong decision. She always looked out for our best interests and made sure we were informed on both the positives and negatives of any house we looked at.


We were pretty picky, and asked Judy to look at tons of houses with us, but she was always patient and made herself available at a moments' notice. The neighborhood we wanted was in a very strong sellers' market where competition was fierce. However, Judy managed to get us an amazing house at the price we wanted to pay AND she got the sellers to throw in a new roof. I would recommend Judy to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. Thanks Judy!

Always acting in our best interests.

My wife and I just purchased our first home, with the help of Judy. Throughout the whole process, Judy made us feel as though we were her only clients and that she was always acting in our best interests.  

Judy was always easy to get in contact with to answer our questions when they came up, and to be the voice of reason when we needed it. Judy did a great job making the experience feel less intimidating for the both of us.  We would happily recommend Judy to anyone looking for a great Realtor!


~Scott and Ali (2014)

You won't regret it!

My partner and I recently engaged Judy to help us buy our first home. She was extremely patient with us - even taking us to see the same place 3 times before we decided it wasn't for us. She was persistent with a less than easy to work with realtor and finally got us in to see the condo we would eventually buy. Throughout the whole process, we knew Judy was on our side and truly wanted to find us a home that we would love (and in our price range too!).  

Being a first-time home buyer is stressful. Judy was understanding and always knew just what to say to help keep us calm. If you are looking for a full service realtor with a great personality - get Judy. You won't regret it!


~Chantal and Brent (2014)

Always advocating for what is good for us.

Our experience with Judy was entirely positive. She was efficient, professional, knowledgeable, approachable, and committed to assist us in any way she can. We felt she was always advocating for what is good for us rather than pushing us to buy as quickly as possible. She always raised the pros and cons of each potential house and helped us reach the right decision. We ended up finding the prefect house for us. Judy handled the negotiation phase beyond our expectations, protecting our interests. Based on our experience we unequivocally recommend working with Judy. When we will buy or sell another house, with out doubt we will be calling Judy for help.

Well-educated and conscientious of recent and current market conditions.

I came to know Judy through the commendations of her colleague who I contracted for the purchase of my first property. First impressions are difficult to overcome, and Judy established herself as not only very ambitious to work together in finding the home of my dreams, but well-educated and conscientious of recent and current market conditions as well.


Judy was incomparably organized and prepared, and produced an extensive comparative market analysis of similar units. Professional photos complimented the eye-catching marketing flyer. Showings commenced within days and resulted in an accepted offer well above recent sales in the same building. Judy's work ethic is exemplary in the truest sense of the word, and realtors are afforded a better reputation through her tireless efforts and results which speak for themselves.  


Thank you for all that you have done for us.

The best part she is always there for you day and night and will always reply.

We recently started looking for apartments. I had to fire 2 realtors  when I found Judy. She was very quick, very professional. She met with me right away even before any viewing to walk me through the process. She flagged 90% of apartments I found as bad ones before the viewing. She makes a point to research everything possible about the apartment/house to make sure her customers don't suffer. She always has valuable input and she is very knowledgeable. She even advised us against an apartment because it would be harder for us to sell it in the future. 
Finding a place is only half of  the job. There is a lot of paperwork that needs to be done and Judy made sure we are on track and follow the procedure. She met with us again several times to make sure we understand the process and we found the best lawyers/brokers. I would recommend Judy to all my friends. She is a gem! And the best part she is always there for you day and night and will always reply.

We are so excited to move in to our new home!

When I first met Judy she made me feel like I was her only client. ( she has many! ) This dedicationwas the reason it ...only took a few weeks before I had found our next home. Thanks Judy for making this purchase so painless. You were there to answer all my questions and the wonderful photos you took helped me to remember all the fine details. We are so excited to move in to our new home!

Highly motivated, knowledgeable, well prepared and efficient.

Judy came highly recommended through the consultations of a friend who had contracted her to market her home some months ago. Research indicated that Judy had earned high respect in the industry and was of impeccable and spotless reputation. Upon our first meeting, Judy demonstrated that she was highly motivated, knowledgeable, well prepared and efficient. She exuded enthusiasm and dedication for her chosen profession that inspired confidence in my decision. Judy went straight to work, preparing the property (a vacant home) with appropriate flourishes and producing a striking, high quality marketing brochure. An Open House was coordinated for the first week along with numerous showings. Her obvious and significant sales ability and strong negotiation skills resulted in an accepted offer within two days of listing and at 99.9% of asking price. Simply put, her work was outstanding! While brevity is always required in testimonial communications such as this, if time allowed I would exhaust available superlatives before completing this unequivocal recommendation. If you wish to work with an able, intelligent and dedicated professional then you need not look beyond Judy Sehling for such an experience.

My first choice when it came time for me to purchase my first home.

Judy has worked with my family for years and was my first choice when it came time for me to purchase my first home.  She made me feel comfortable and well informed through the entire process.  Judy negotiated a great purchase price on my apartment and really went the extra mile to ensure I was taken care of.  I'm always impressed with her new and creative ways of reaching out to her clients and know that she loves what she does.

Made the process easy.

Judy was an awesome Realtor for us. We had a tight timeline and specific requirements we wanted in a home and she met them no problem. Being first-time home buyers she made the process easy and we truly felt like her only clients although we know that wasn't the case! I highly recommend Judy as a Realtor.

Fiona and Ravi  (2013)

Happy to give Judy a referral any day of the week.

Judy did a phenomenol job assisting us with purchasing our first home. She was thorough, professional, detail-oriented and attentive. All you could ask for in an Agent for one of the biggest purchases of your life. We are both professionals and have extremely high standards, so we kinda expected to have to be hands on. Judy could not have made things easier for us. She reviewed everything that came across our desk, drew our attention to the important stuff, and was available whenever we needed her. Happy to give Judy a referral any day of the week. And, we love our new home. :)

You worked extra hard for us.

Thank you so much.

Judy are a wonderful and professional real estate lady. You helped my family find the perfect place. Thank you so much :)  
~ Darren A. (2013)

Gave my wife and I honest, informed advice throughout our entire search.

Let's forget for a moment that she happens top be among the top 10% in her field in the GVRD... the fact that I instantly felt comfortable with Judy from the very first phone call meant everything. She did nothing but give my wife and I honest, informed advice throughout our entire search, and was never pushy or selfish. In fact I hope she stays active for many years to come because I will definitely be bringing her more business in the future, and would recommend her to anybody looking to buy or sell their home. Thank you very much Judy! We love you! The Cowies 2013 

We can't thank you enough....

We can't thank you enough for EVERYTHING you've done for us. Right from taking over our listing, we felt so confident that you would get our home sold! From updating the photo gallery to adding a text for info sign, your professionalism and attention to detail have earned you top marks in our book. You were easy to communicate with and you put complex real estate jargon into simple to understand terms. With the sale of our home taken care of, you stepped right in and negotiated the contract for our brand new townhouse and navigated us through all the fine details. We are so happy with everything you did and would be absolutely pleased to refer you to anybody we know looking to buy or sell property. The whole process was smooth "sailing"....

I couldn't be happier...

" I think the real estate world is lucky to have you! I couldn't be happier (or luckier) to have worked with you." ~Kathy I.   (2013)

 

"Thank-you Judy for your tireless efforts to find us our dream home.   We tested your patience (so we thought) as you trekked across the lower mainland...  eventually settling in Westwood Plateau.  You never seemed to tire or get impatient with us as we figured out what we wanted as a family for our first home.  During all hours of the day we looked at home after home with you and all our 3 kids-in-tow, yet you managed to keep it stress-free.  And your knowledge in ALL the areas we searched was unparalleled; we trusted you completely and couldn't have gone through this process with another realtor.   You are kind, thoughtful,  knowledgeable, patient & respectful. Thank-you from the bottom of our hearts!"

"We had the pleasure of working with Judy in July of 2011. We needed someone to help us find the right home for our family in a specific neighbourhood. We were first time homebuyers and Judy was able to be patient with us and work around our schedules as we were in search of our first home.  Judy quickly identified homes that met all of our criteria and she further helped us to create a "short list" by bringing to our attention the various features AND drawbacks of each property we viewed. She was very cognizant of current and past property values in the area and was diligent in guiding us to select a property that was both a good fit to our current needs, and the right saleable investment should our needs change in the future. She went well above and beyond her responsibilities as a Realtor in supporting us through the stages of the purchase process. Judy's dedication to exceptional service was clear from the start of the house hunting process to the very end. We couldn’t be happier with the home that we found."

"Judy recently sold my house, in 18 days, and helped me buy the house of my dreams.  I am not easy to please but she worked tirelessly with me to ensure that I found exactly what I wanted.  I can't thank her enough for her patience and tenacity in sticking with me and making each day of visiting houses a fun event.  Hopefully I won't want to move again for a very long time, but if I do it is Judy I will go back to.  In the meantime I will refer her to everyone who is looking to buy their dream home.  If they work with Judy, they are guaranteed to find it."

"Oh my gosh, where do I start…. Judy Sehling was the best! She was very accommodating, very pleasant and very responsive with our concerns, needs and wants! Without her I am not sure what the outcome would have been. I highly recommend anyone & everyone to use her if you are buying or selling. She is not only a pretty face but a very knowledgable and experience Realtor. We love her!"

-          Rania & Curtiss  (2011)

 

 

 

 

"We have NEVER had someone work as hard to find us our home.  Judy went above and beyond our expectations to find us exactly what we were looking for.  We could not be happier!"
Ryan/Amye  (2011)

 

 

 

 

"I first met Judy Sehling a few years ago when I was exploring the possibility of moving from my Vancouver condominium to a small house.  I subsequently realized that I wasn’t ready but in the process Judy took me to view probably every available house in my price range; she spent many evenings and numerous hours patiently transporting me all over the East Side.   When I realized that I was, in fact, not going to move at that time, Judy was totally understanding and supportive.

 

A year or two later I decided to leave the city.  I immediately thought of Judy and hired her to sell my home.  An excellent decision - she sold it in one day!  As well, she found me a lovely new home; another condominium of just the right size in an area of the lower mainland that was perfect for me.

 

A few years later and I’m on the move again.  This time I’ve chosen a completely different lifestyle on an Island.  Of course, once again I immediately called upon Judy and once again she has been absolutely fantastic to work with.  My apartment has been sold and I’m moving soon to my new Island home, thanks to her recommendation of a Realtor who specializes in that area.

 

I highly recommend Judy Sehling; she is both knowledgeable and extremely professional.  Judy is meticulous and her attention to detail has allowed me, as a client, to put my complete trust in her. Judy’s patience and her gentle manner take a lot of the stress out of buying or selling a home. Besides, she’s loads of fun to work with.  Thanks for everything Judy!"
