Thanks Cheng, Yuri and Ian for the kind words on yelp.ca :
I had the pleasure to work with Blair a bit more than a year ago and I'm now sitting in my dream condo writing this review. Blair was fantastic in every way you could hope for from a realtor:
He listened to our needs and provided helpful and non-judgmental advices. He was never pushy like other realtors because he cares about more than just getting paid. He believes that he has an obligation to find the perfect home for his clients.
Blair is so experienced and well connected. He helped us network all the necessary contacts to ensure a smooth buying experience. He is a smart and diligent realtor. He did more than just showing condos and writing offers. He put his "personal touch" on his communications to seller and I could say that the only reason I was able to get my sweet home now all thanks to that "personal touch".
At the time of condo shopping, I was expecting my new born. Blair did more than what he was supposed to do and enabled me to concentrate on my family while still not losing any ground on condo shopping. And even after we got our dream home, he was helping me with the legal, renovation and move. With his expertise in almost everywhere in the process, I knew that I was in good hands.
Blair worked extremely hard and whenever I needed him, he was always there for me. We worked together for a little less than a year. Even during his vacation, he had his entrusted partner looking after for us and constantly emailed and called back to check offer status.
It's worth mentioning that Blair is one of the nicest and the best most genuine guy I have ever met. He is also a friend and he cares about people more than the one time deal. In fact, we have now become friends and we occasionally sit down and enjoy a cup of coffee together.
Look no further! You will not be disappointed. There are plenty of realtors out there but Blair is THE REALTOR you need! -Cheng Chang

Hi Blair...I just have to tell you how much I LOVE my new home....
It is so wonderful! It really feels like home already!!!
And I credit it all to you! - Geri C.
We met Blair at an open house for one of his listings and found his professionalism and knowledge about matters important to us impressive. Blair understood our needs and went above and beyond our expectations as first time home buyers to help us navigate the overwhelming and sometimes frustrating home buying process. He made sure we made decisions with full knowledge and confidence. When it comes time to sell or look for another home we will definitely contact Blair.

Blair Smith at Royal LePage has restored my faith in real estate agents worldwide.
At each and every turn, he was extremely knowledgeable about his industry, he went above and beyond the call of duty, and, most importantly, he acted with the utmost professional integrity.
As a foreign investor, he made my life simple over the course of the transaction, and he was always readily available to resolve any questions or concerns that I had.
I look forward to doing business with him again very soon!

Thank you for all of your efforts in achieving a quick and very satisfying sale of our suite.
You were the first and only Realtor that we considered for the job and we have no regrets. This property was not merely an investment, it was our home, and your sensitivity to this showed in the very personal yet professional approach you used in marketing it.
Of course your knowledge and keen insight about current trends, development planning in the area, and buyer's motivation were much appreciated and clearly demonstrated in all of your actions. But above all, we most deeply valued your loyalty and integrity in representing our interests as vendors to all the other parties involved in our selling process.
We are looking forward to working with you again and are pleased to recommend you to anyone else needing an excellent Realtor.
Cheers, your amigos, -Kraig, Emily and Adam
Hi Blair and Gale,
"Hands down, Blair and Gale are Vancouver's most valuable real estate team.
They know downtown but more importantly they know the housing market.
They made my first time experience both relaxing and positive - I'm ready to go
at it again! If you want knowledge, attention, and someone working for you,
it's the Blair and Gale team without a doubt."
Thanks again... and especially the hard work in making my first purchase a success.
Just a note to say 'thank you' on all the work you have done for us. I have lost count
of the number of times you've come by for signatures, met with developers etc...
I dont recall any other realtor providing the type of service you have shown us.
Your offer to take care of anything that popped up' this evening was very thoughtful.
You certainly provide VERY personallized and very sincere service.
As for Warren and I, we, are well aware that we have been demanding clients.
You remained a gentleman in all situations we threw at you.
Thank you and keep up your excellent service...but find time for yourself too :)

We can't thank-you enough for your time, patience and hard work. Your knowledge of Vancouver and your level of professionalism have really made us more comfortable in our new city.
Thanks again, -Jeff and Leanne
Mr. Blair Smith of Royal LePage City Centre was appointed the listing agent for, and has successfully concluded the sale of, five of our residential condominium units in the Rosedale Garden, Vancouver in 2006. These comprise of a mixture of 1 bedroom, 2 bedrooms and 2 storey townhouse units and we found Mr. Smith highly knowledgable in all market segments, the building and the real estate industry as a whole. He was attentive to all our needs and performed the sales in a most professional, diligent and efficient manner.
We strongly recommend Mr. Smith to those who intend to purchase or sell residential condominium units in Vancouver.

We wanted to thank you for an excellent job selling our condo.
You appreciated the qualities that made our condo special and communicated those qualities to potential buyers. The marketing campaign you came up with was directed to the right people, and your pictures, flyers and web-site were great. Your open houses were well planned and well-timed.
We found you very helpful and we especially appreciated the time you took to answer all our questions and to discuss our strategy.

.......he has been so amazing!

To Whom It May Concern:
We had an unusual property to sell. ( 1104 Bute St. Vancouver )
We chose Blair largely for the interest and enthusiasm he showed for the project.
He had good marketing ideas for our home and we were not disappointed with our choice.
Our home sold within 20 days for more than we were asking in a quiet market and no complications at all.
Blair made everything as easy as possible for us and actually went out of his way to monitor the property for us while we were out of town.
I would recommend Blair to anyone looking for an honest agent who will work hard for their best interest.
We were very happy with the service we received.
Sincerely, - Chris Johnston
HEY BLAIR !
I WOULD DEFINITLEY RECOMMEND YOU ...
YOU SHOULD GIVE ME SOME OF YOUR CARDS !
Just to let you know that ..., and everything is fine.
I want to take the opportunity to thank you for all your help. This is the fourth time that I buy real estate in Vancouver, but it is the first time that I have dealt with a Realtor with your efficiency and professionalism. You made a difficult situation into a pleasure rather than a burden. Your optimism and encouragement helped make this an excellent transaction.
All the best, - Patricia O.
