"pleased with his responsiveness, attention to detail, and follow through. "
When we decided to sell our house in Ambleside we asked friends who had lived in West Vancouver all their lives for a recommendation for a real estate agent that they trusted. Our friends recommended Tom Hassan who they had known for many years and who had been their real estate agent when they sold their home on our street.
When we met with Tom for the first time we were impressed that he had amassed considerable relevant market information about the market in our neighbourhood providing us with a sense of how homes were selling both in terms of price and length of time on the market. Tom designed a marketing plan for the sale of our house in terms of asking price, sequencing of open houses, and a date for offers. Tom had excellent suggestions as to what we needed to do to prepare our home for sale and very quickly arranged for marketing materials including photographs that presented our home to its best advantage on the MLS online sites and in real estate fliers distributed in the neighbourhood. We relied on Tom’s marketing expertise in a volatile housing market and were pleased with his responsiveness, attention to detail, and follow through. J. Jansen & D Dunbar
"We were struck by his friendly and honest manner"
We met Tom in the Fall of 2015 when our friends invited us to look at a home they were considering purchasing. We were struck by his friendly and honest manner, so when we decided to sell our home in mid-2016 we automatically contacted Tom to sell our 50-year old architecturally designed home.
We recently sold this home in the Horseshoe Bay area and Tom and his team did an outstanding job of marketing and ultimately selling it. Everything from initial consultation to photography, media, open houses, showings and negotiation of the final sale were done both professionally and expeditiously. The final terms and price were outstanding as were the buyers he found who are planning to preserve this mid-century modern home.
We highly recommend Tom Hassan and his team. David and Sandra Dick
"I Thank Tom for Having Found Me My Dream House!"
I started to look for a house to buy in West Vancouver nearly 2 years ago. We met Tom at one of his Opens. He had since then showed us quite a number of properties based on our requirements. Due to language barrier, I did not contact Tom after my daughter’s return to china. Surprisingly, one day, I received a call from Tom’s Chinese speaking assistant Susanna, offering their services and inquired again about my needs.
I have always trusted Tom would find me my dream house and yes, at the end, after years of searching and looking, I have finally bought the perfect house! I thank Tom for all his hard work and advices as well as his professionalism. I also thank Susanna for her great help in translating what I wanted to say into English to both Tom and other service providers upon moving. Ms. Guo West Vancouver Resident
Your marketing approach was comprehensive; floor plans, photos, videos were all professional, timely and non-invasive. Listing price was spot-on, and we appreciated the breadth of the marketing efforts you made across the Lower Mainland. Of course, living in the neighbourhood yourself is helpful. Confident negotiations to close the sale in less than 1 week was a great result. Thanks! D. & A. Wilson Ambleside Resident
"Knowledgeable and tough negotiator"
I have known Tom Hassan as a business associate for several years, and have always found him to be highly professional in the conduct of his affairs. Tom has proved himself to be both a knowledgeable and tough negotiator whose honesty and integrity I have grown to trust and appreciate Jim Pattison CEO, The Jim Pattison Group
" there is no doubt in our mind that you were the right choice of agent"
As you may know, when we initially decided to list our house for sale, we interviewed a couple of realtors to get their comments and proposals for listing. Our friend suggested that we should also contact you and give you an opportunity to present us with a proposal. Your proposal emphasized your Asian marketing efforts and we also met Susanna your assistant who speaks both Mandarin and Cantonese.
As you know you were our agent of choice and we want to thank you for the effort you put in on our behalf and for a successful sale. In hindsight, there is no doubt in our mind that you were the right choice of agent and we would be happy to refer you to any friends or others that we know that may be considering listing their home.
Thank you again for all your efforts and I wish you and your family all the best in your future endeavours. Stan and Dulcie Greenfield

"With great skill, diplomacy, exquisite timing and gentleness, he sold our house."
Every rare once in a while there is a perfect confluence of circumstance and person. We experienced that ideal combination when Tom sold our house.
Like many retired people, we found ourselves with a large house, large property and children long flown from the home. It was time for a change and a move and we were reluctant to launch into either. The prospect of selling our home with all that that entails (open houses, fixing things up, presenting a perfect garden) was holding us back. And then we would have to find another place to live with our three animals.
Knowing we wanted to sell and that we were held back by the daunting prospect, Tom approached us with a potential buyer. With great skill, diplomacy, exquisite timing and gentleness, he sold our house without us experiencing any inconvenience, stress, extra work and anxiety.
In fact, we were so pleased and filled with relief to have sold.
Then, faced with the need for a new home, he found one for us instantly. We basically sold our home and bought another one in a day. We didn’t even have to go through the stress of finding a new place to live.
Now, we are still in our general neighborhood, in a small cozy home that suits us to a ‘T’. We look back and are so grateful that what could have been an emotional, difficult move was, in fact, smooth and easy. There were even laughs along the way.
Thank you, Tom. We will always be appreciative and look back at that time in our lives with pleasure.
We are never moving again! But would call you in an instant if we wanted to do so. Leslie & Maurice Gibbons West Vancouver Resident
"We highly recommend Tom and his team"
Newly arrived in Vancouver, we met Mr. Tom Hassan and his Chinese speaking assistant Susanna Sun at an open-house in West Vancouver. Having learned our buying needs, Tom and his team utilized their rich practical experience and carefully selected listings that closely matched our requirements, and found us an ideal home within just 1 month time. We thank Tom and his team’s high quality and efficient service! By providing us the valuable resources, opinion and suggestions from searching, purchasing, applying for mortgage to home inspection and insurance, it has made the process of first-time home purchasing in a foreign country much quicker and easier. Additionally, Ms. Sun, whom we found very trustworthy helped us tremendously in many other aspects. We highly recommend Tom and his team to all buyers! Ms. Xie West Vancouver Resident
"We would highly recommend Tom Hassan"
Ten years ago, my husband and I stumbled upon a very architectural home in West Vancouver at an "Open House". Tom Hassan represented the seller. We loved the house and wanted to make an offer, even though we hadn't taken the steps to sell our then current residence. Tom was knowledgeable, helpful and forthright and in what seemed like no time at all, sold our property and got us into our dream home without any effort, stress or delay! When we recently decided to "downsize", it was a no-brainer that Tom would be our agent, on both sale and purchase, of a smaller place. This time has proved trickier due to a demanding International buyer, a persnickety Inspector and an all around tougher-for-seller market. Tom hasn't let us down. He has once again handled every bit of our sale and purchase, with competence and aplomb. We have always felt like he has been on top of every aspect of this transactions with his vast knowledge of the market, and patient but firm demeanor. Tom has always made us feel very taken care of. We would highly recommend Tom Hassan to all our friends and family. Tom is an excellent Realtor, and a great guy! Most Sincerely, Robin Griffin Mclachlan Producer Visual Effects, Twilight Breaking Dawn
"Great experience working with Tom!"
I have recently met the listing agent Tom Hassan and his Chinese speaking assistant Susanna upon looking at a house with my husband in North Vancouver. The property itself was in such a high quality that was truly a “love at the first sight” to us. We made an offer right away. Tom’s excellent negotiation skills have made both parties happily satisfied and the deal went through on the very same day. We thank Tom and his team very much for their professional and efficient service. By providing us the valuable resources, advices on purchasing, mortgage, home inspection and insurance, it has made our home purchasing experience more pleasant and relaxed. We highly recommend Tom and his team to all buyers! Ms. Gao North Vancouver Resident
"Thanks to Tom Hassan, we are now moving on with our lives and into new ventures on the North Shore"
Tom Hassan has sold two houses for our family over this past year. He has offered us professional advice on how to present our homes and make them more desirable for the potential purchaser. Tom knows the West Vancouver, Ambleside and Sentinel Hill areas. We were very pleased with how he marketed and presented our homes. The marketing efforts by Mr. Hassan have been non-stop since the day we listed the properties and quickly resulted in "SOLD" signs outside our homes. Thanks to Tom Hassan, we are now moving on with our lives and into new ventures on the North Shore. Rob & Val Pellat West Vancouver Residents
"In the end it all worked out for the best"
Crista and I would like to thank you very much for selling our house and finding us a new one. Your patience and encouragement to hang on for the right price was much appreciated and worth the wait. Although the process took much longer than any of us anticipated at the outset in the end it all worked out for the best... Thanks again! Crista and Pieter North Shore Residents
"One of the North Shore's most outstanding Realtors"
During the eight years we have known him, Tom Hassan has steered us through three separate sale and purchase transactions, in all of which his advice, customer service and professionalism invariably exceeded our expectations. Thanks to Tom's unfailing good humour and positive outlook, our most recent experience was every bit as pleasurable and rewarding as the earlier ones - perhaps even more so, since on this occasion, he delivered two full-price offers within 48 hours of listing. As in the past, it was a pleasure to deal with Tom and we shall have no hesitation in doing so again when next we need the services of one of the North Shore's most outstanding Realtors. Barry and Ann Wall North Shore Residents
