I first met Michael Ragosin when I was looking to purchases a
home in Burnaby & I was most impressed with his help in the
Purchase of my present townhome.
Now 23 years later & retirement I again chose Michael to be my
real estate agent because I knew he would work really hard to get
me the best price for my home.
I have found him to be professional, kind, reliable & hard-working
on my behalf using the most up to date marketing & social
I totally trusted him to get me the highest price possible & he
did NOT disappoint.
My home sold well over asking price within 12 days. I highly
recommend Michael to anyone in the market to buy or sell their
Professional approach made what can be a very stressful event run very smoothly.
We first learned of Mike Ragosin at a gathering in our complex last May. A neighbour related how
happy she was that her previous townhome had just sold. The result of the sale could not have
been better because of the thorough job of her real estate agent (Mike). When we decided to sell
our unit we approached our neighbour for the details of her agent and we are glad we did.
From the beginning of the sale process Mike made all the technicalities and conditions very clear.
He also was very thorough in marketing the property, taking care of photography and website
presence. Mike carefully explained what was necessary for showings and organized the open
houses very well. Mike's attention to detail in this process was meticulous, as a consequence our
unit sold in two weeks with a very satisfactory outcome.
Mike Ragosins professional approach made what can be a very stressful event run very smoothly.
Thanks for all your help Mike we are very grateful.
Finally we have no hesitation in recommending Mike for the sale of real estate.

Thanks again so much for everything! Still can't believe it.
FAST RESULTS WITH PROFESSIONAL SERVICE
FAST RESULTS WITH PROFESSIONAL SERVICES
My town house was listed with Mike Ragosin and he presented 5 unconditional offers in just 3 days. We realised $152,000 over the asking price.
His assessment of the market and timing is excellent. He also advised on the minimum amount of renovations before selling thereby saving several thousand dollars of expenditure.
In this fast paced market it is so important to have a professional with knowledge and expertise. Mike works diligently for the buyer and this is the second property he has sold for me. He has also acted as a buying agent for my daughter and gave excellent service, securing her house in a timely and price effective manner.
Mike is also an excellent property manager, having managed two properties for me.
I can thoroughly recommend Mike for all your real estate needs.

Mike was the manager of a rental property we owned for several years and most recently he was our realtor for the sale of 2 properties and the purchase of another one. We were absolutely thrilled with everything he did for us. He is an outstanding property manager, finds excellent tenants, deals with issues promptly and efficiently and takes all the worry out of renting out a property. As our realtor he was superb. He works extremely hard and the result was both our properties sold at prices we were thrilled with. His advice on pricing, offers and counter offers was first rate and he made the process so easy, even though I was out of the country and travelling as offers went back and forth. Perhaps his greatest strength is that he deals with any issues that arise in a proactive manner and makes sure that everything is resolved quickly and efficiently. The result is that the whole process of selling and purchasing is virtually stress free. We would use him again for any real estate transactions in a heart beat.
Thank you for all your help!
After having to deal with a few agents that were unable to deliver on any of their promises it was a huge pleasure dealing with someone who is absolutely results driven.
The marketing plan that you created and the out side of the box thinking is a 100% contributor to the sale of my property, of course all the efforts helped as well.
I will be sure to recommend you to all the people that I know.
Thank you once again!

"Without Michael I would be lost"
“ In a difficult time of my life I was faced with a $130,000.00 Special Assessment on my condo. Not knowing what to do I called Michael for his advice. He offered me several options and assurred me he would be around for whatever I decided. After discussing those options with my family I decided to list my home with Michael. Within 4 weeks my home was sold for a good price and he negotiated that the assessment was looked after by the purchaser. Michael helped me find a more suitable home for a much lower price in the same neighbourhood. Everytime I was unsure I was doing the right thing Michael was there for me. He even made all the arrangements with the lawyers and movers for me. I don’t know what I would have done if it was not for Michael and certainly would recommend him to anyone who was buying or selling a home”
Michael has a very good reputation and track record in the complex of “
Acting as our sale agent, Michael proved again with his professionalism and knowledge of the complex. He listened and truly understood our needs. His outstanding customer service, marketing, sells and negotiation skills are impressive. In addition, he worked very hard behind the scene to truly represent us.

In June 2007, we had initially attempted to sell our townhome on our own. After several open houses and over a hundred people through, we weren't getting the quality or quantity of offers were expecting in a timely fashion. With the completion date of our new home purchase just 3 months away, we decided to list with a realtor to speed up the process. We had researched several 'discount brokers' and were on the verge of listing with one, when Michael contacted us, in the neighbourhood dealing with a unit he had recently sold. We were convinced by Michael's track record as the real estate agent with the largest number of sales in our townhome complex, his conviction that he could get us the selling price we needed, and his policy of performance-based contractual agreement.
With a detailed gameplan, Michael was able to get us quality offers and the selling price we were looking for in a shorter time than we expected. Even taking into account selling commission, with a selling price very close to a healthy list price, we were still further ahead than if we had listed with a discount broker, at a lower recommended list price. At the end of the day our 'net proceeds' exceeded our expectations by about $10,000. With the sale of our townhome behind us, we able to look forward to forward to moving into our new home!
We would recommend Michael to anyone wanting to sell their home in a timely manner for a better-than-average price.

In July 2001, my spouse and I decided that we had to expeditiously sell our condominium for a number of reasons. There was a time frame involved and we were hoping to sell our condo within 3 months. In Richmond, the market seemed saturated with condominiums and we felt we had little hope of selling for a reasonable price within such a short time.
I found Mr. Ragosin simply by an advertisement which I passed on the way to work everyday. In this case my impulse paid off. I inquired via email and he responded promptly the same evening. The next evening, he came to meet with my spouse and me. He had a market evaluation prepared already, showed it to us, and within a few days, our condo was listed for sale.
I was simply amazed at the network of colleagues Mr. Ragosin works with. We received an offer within one week after only three showings, and other offers came and went, which I found frustrating. Mr. Ragosin, however, remained calm and positive, this was a characteristic which I found extremely reliable and helpful.
We considered renting in the event we could not sell in time. Mr. Ragosin, again positive, assured us that he could act as Property Manager as well. Simply put, he was there for us in every possible way.
I had to go out of town, and during my absence, we received an offer, and Mr. Ragosin diligently worked to complete the offer as if I were in town. He went out of his way to communicate with me long distance, provided me documents to sign, and ensured that the offer which we accepted proceeded smoothly. His reliability is incredible.
I have recommended Mr. Ragosin to several friends. I highly recommend him as he is timely, prompt and readily available to answer his clients' inquiries. His confidentiality, resourcefulness and performance are, in my opinion, outstanding and completely reliable.
PS. We sold within 3 weeks, $3000.00 within our asking price.
I'd previously gone through three realtors before I was referred to Michael Ragosin. I found others hard to reach, never returning messages, never attending any of the showings, or to busy to answer questions. Michael Ragosin, however, returned every phone call within a short period of time. Personally attended every showing of my home, and gave me the personal attention I felt I deserved.

I am truly impressed with Mr. Ragosin's marketing abilities. He listed our home and within 7 days we received 5 offers and sold for $22,000 over the asking price.
I would recommend anyone who is thinking of selling to employ Michael as their listing agent.
Our townhome unit was in direct competition with three neighboring units also for sale in our complex and our sold first. Mike's personal approach was the key reason for the sale of our home at a time when real estate sales had slowed considerably in the Lower Mainland.
Chris and I want to thank you for selling our home. I can't believe that we had a firm offer with no contingencies only 1 week after the home went on MLS. Just eighteen days after we first met you, I have a check from my lawyers. We are happy to recommend your services to our friends and neighbours and hope you share this letter with perspective clients.
When you first met us, you tactfully told us what needed to be done to make our house ready for sale. You helped us pick a new paint colour and even went with us to look at a house painted in the same colour. Your list of experts or everything from window cleaning to carpet repairs made getting the little things done easier. I realize that sometimes it is difficult to tell a seller that the price he wants is too high or the colour he just painted is not attractive, You did so with tact and honesty that was greatly appreciated.
Thank you so much for your professional and courteous assistance during my recent visit to Vancouver. Wendy and both appreciated your providing us with a thorough overview of the residential real estate market.
Selling a home under time constraints can be a nerve-wracking matter, but your calm guidance and professional efforts made the experience pain-free, We are indeed impressed with your service.
