I would like to thank you for the absolutely outstanding job that you did in selling my father-in-law's condominium. You had the necessary tools to take on the job - knowledge, common sense and competency - as well as a wealth of compassion that made the selling of a beloved home easier for a senior. You went well beyond the call of duty and we are very grateful to you! I would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone that has a home to sell.
Thank you again for all of your hard work and dedication.

Hi Carolyn, thanks for being there to help us when once again we did it 'the wrong way' (buying before we sold). You gave up all your weekends for a month to help us sell and in the end we got it done with time to spare! Having you in our lives in this process was like having you as family and we will miss the daily chats. Thanks for your determination, humour, patience, love, and cookies!
Dear Carolyn, I just wanted to take a moment to say 'thank you' so much for everything you did to help me get my first home. Your determination and integrity gave me the confidence to know that you would find the perfect home for me. It was great to know you were always on my side and ready to fight for me. Integrity and humour are two things I truly respect in people and you have both! Sincerely,
It is my pleasure to introduce Carolyn Vander Veen, Realtor Extraordinaire - I learned very early in my condo search that having the right realtor on your side is the most critical component of a successful real estate transaction. Carolyn is that Realtor. Carolyn is a master at her craft and the one you want representing you when negotiating a property transaction. Without hesitation, it will be Carolyn I will be calling on for my next property purchase or sale. You can’t ask for anyone more loyal to work with.Sincerely,
D. Vidas and M. Allen
Carolyn Vander Veen helped us purchase our first home on the lower mainland and she made the whole process a comfortable and pleasant experience. She was patient when we were changing our minds about what we wanted, she listened and modified our search as we needed, she got back to us quickly when we had questions about properties, and she was consistent, reliable and knowledgeable throughout the process. When we found the place we wanted Carolyn went to bat for us and negotiated a great deal. In addition to her professionalism, she is simply a down-to earth and nice person to be around! Our new home is perfect for us and we couldn't be happier with Carolyn's service.
Carolyn, Thank you so much for all your time, advice and guidance while I was looking for a new home! Thanks to you I have a place that exceeds my dreams!
Hello Carolyn, Thank you so very very much for ALL of your help on one of the largest decisions Rajesh and I have ever made. You made what could have been a really frightening experience, really fun and easy! We were really lucky the day we met you, and are so happy that you were involved in our first home purchase. Best wishes and humungous thanks,
Hi Carolyn,What can I say but our experience with you was amazing. You were hard working - you took care of us through out the whole process and drove lil Dianne and I all over New West and Burnaby. You stayed on top of every little detail. In the middle of a deal that we were negiotiating back and forth on, we looked at and scooped up another better property in the same complex - one that wasn't available - amazing. There was never any pressure and you took care of things we wouldn't have forseen. You are an absolute "professional".
Loyal Customers -
Carolyn Vander Veen was my real estate agent in 2010. Working with her was extremely easy because she was eager to help me look for places and was very reliable. If I had any questions or concerns she would get back to me at a very short notice and always made me feel that she had the best intentions for me. After only searching for a month, Carolyn helped me find my dream place and I could not have been happier with her service. I have already recommended her to a friend and would use her again in the future. I am pleased to recommend her to others who are looking for a great and helpful real estate agent. Yours sincerely,
Rob & Jo Ann Nuttall

Dear CarolynWe really appreciate everything you did to help us sell our house. All the open houses you did made the difference in selling our home. We will recommend you to our friends and give you a call the next time we plan to move (hopefully not for another 30 years)! Thanks again.

We enlisted Carolyn Vander Veen to sell our home and to help us find another one. Providing Carolyn with our requirements for location, size price range and availability dates. Carolyn worked very hard and effectively to sell our house. Carolyn helped us with the staging. She showed it to a large number of potential buyers and held numerous open houses. At her open houses she always had homemade cookies and coffee, which was a nice personal touch and appreciated by all. During this time Carolyn kept us informed of the progess and made sure we were given ample warnings of showings. Through her efforts our house sold quickly, we were very pleased with the price as well as Carolyn’s professionalism and the excellent manner in which she handled the sale. Carolyn had to be alert to the market and what was available. Consequently, when she identified potential houses she informed us immediately and set up viewing schedules. What was very gratifying was that Carolyn made us feel we were her only clients. She spent time showing us houses in various areas and we never felt pressured or rushed. She also had all the details on each house we saw as well as the history, sales, etc. If we asked for additional information, she got back to us quickly with it. The house we ended up purchasing, despite several other offers, was in large part due to Carolyn’s professional capabilities. When we decided to finally put in an offer, she immediately set to work and presented the offer personally the same day. Within hours our offer had been accepted. Purchasing a house can be a traumatic experience. In our case the experience was a pleasure because of the professionalism, honesty and dedication of Carolyn. Without hesitation I would recommend Carolyn to our friends and acquaintances looking to purchase property.
