Would You Like To Know What My Past Clients Are Saying?
There is nothing more rewarding to me than a satisfied home buyer or seller.
KNOWLEDGEABLE, THOROUGH AND VERY PROFESSIONAL
I have purchased and sold property with John as my realtor and he is knowledgeable, thorough and very professional. He was always available to answer my questions, provide insight and information or give helpful advice. It makes the process so much easier and less stressful. Thanks John, for a job well done.
– Carol, August 2016
WE APPRECIATE YOUR GREAT SERVICES
I think you did a great job in a short period of time. You were very effective and positive in the way you did your job. Thanks John we appreciated your great services.
– Dan & Vicki, June 2016
BEST REALTOR I HAVE EVER HAD
You are one of the best realtors I have ever had. John you are the best!
– June, May 2016
WE ARE SO GRATEFUL TO HAVE HAD JOHN MAKE IT POSSIBLE
For anyone looking to purchase a home, especially in this fast paced market, you will need the skill and knowledge of an experienced realtor, and we would like to highly recommend John Dale. John kept us up to date every time a new listing came up in the very specific area of Maple Ridge we were looking for. He was continually keeping us posted on recent sales, and any events taking place in the market that may affect us and our search. He attended most open houses with us and always gave very valuable feedback. When we finally did find a home we wanted to make an offer on, he was quick to organize the process and did a fantastic job of keeping us informed during a very anxious time. We are very excited to say that our purchase was successful, and we are so grateful to have had John make it possible!
– Andy & Denise, April 2016
FELT COMPLETELY INFORMED AND SECURE DUE TO JOHN’S PROFESSIONALISM AND EXPERIENCE
As first time home buyers in an extremely hot housing market, John was able to provide my wife and I with all the information required for new home buyers to feel comfortable through all the stages of purchasing a home. He answered any, and all questions in a very timely manner, as well as made the effort to adapt his schedule to the challenging schedule of shift workers. From viewings to the final purchase, we felt completely informed and secure due to John’s professionalism and experience, and felt that he gave us access to opportunities and insight that we would not have got with another realtor in terms of the bottom line. I would 100% recommend John Dale to my family or close friends to be their realtor of choice when making a housing decision.
– Paul & Laura, March 2016
YOUR SERVICE AS ALWAYS IS GOOD
John, Thanks for you help to sell this property. Your service “as always” is good!
– Kai, January 2016
ONE WORD TO DESCRIBE YOUR ATTENTION TO CLIENT SERVICE IS “AWESOME”
Not having moved for nearly 30 years, I had no idea what to expect from the real estate world but having you look after every detail was a huge weight off my shoulders. You anticipated questions from potential buyers and spent hours researching everything about the house, property and surrounding area. Your phone calls and e-mails to keep me up to date on every detail meant a lot. Just can’t say enough good things about your service.
I’ve already passed your business cards on to friends who will be requiring Realtor services in the future and have highly recommended your service.
– Lisa, October 2015
THOROUGH, SWIFT, AND PROFESSIONAL SERVICE
Thank you for helping us purchase two rental properties in Maple Ridge. We greatly appreciate your thorough, swift and professional service. We would not hesitate to recommend your service to anyone.
– Alva & David, August 2015
DEALING WITH YOU WAS OUR PLEASURE
Wanted to drop you a line to thank you for the excellent job you did in finding my husband and I our new home. You took the time to show us what was out there and we greatly appreciated your availability. Dealing with you was our pleasure. You were very amicable and honest in answering our many questions. Thanks again. We love our new home and where we are situated.
– Bill & Lynne, July 2015
JOHN DALE WAS ONE OF OUR BEST DECISIONS
My wife and I have used John Dale as both our selling and buying realtor. We moved away, and we could not find a realtor as good as John Dale again. On all fronts, John exceeded our expectations, and the level of service provided by others. Working with John Dale was one of our best decisions in buying and selling our property.
– Mark & Tonja, May 2015
LEARNING THE TRUE VALUE OF WORKING WITH A REALTOR
While working with John, we learned the true value of working with a realtor when buying a house. We were first-time home buyers with a zillion questions, which John always answered in a timely matter. But he went beyond that. Knowing we are new to Maple Ridge, he informed us about the different areas within this city. And he helped us develop a critical eye while looking at houses. His goal was to help us find a good quality house that would meet all our needs. And he succeeded. We feel very confident that we made the perfect choice for our family. And that is a great feeling! Thank you, John!
– Terence & Marita, January 2015
FELT VALUED AS A CLIENT
Due to my personal circumstances John knew this was going to be a tough job and took it on anyway. He was caring, understanding and most importantly he LISTENED. I felt valued as a client despite the fact that John probably had to jump through a few more hoops than he usually has to. He took the time to explain things in a way I could understand and he did his research. Obviously he did a great job with marketing and managed to price our former family home fairly as three days after listing we have accepted an offer. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell. I am very grateful I chose John to sell our home; he helped make what was part of a difficult time a little less painful.
– Janine, January 2015
A COMPLETELY SEAMLESS DEAL
You were a “god send” for Mike and I. Without your guidance and levelheadedness, we would not have been able to make the purchase of our new home a reality. Your knowledge of the area is fantastic and when we needed a bit of “hand holding” you were there for us. You made the purchase go smoothly (and I believe it was a record setting purchase on your end…..8 days?!?!). It was a completely seamless deal. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to recommend you to others who want to make buying or selling a home easy. Thank you so much for everything you did for us, it will never be forgotten.
– Deb & Mike, October 2014
IT IS IN A HEARTBEAT THAT WE RECOMMEND ANYONE TO USE JOHN TO FIND YOUR DREAM HOME
This letter is to address to Mr. John Dale our deepest gratitude for his wonderful help in finding our perfect home. We have been looking for the past 6 months for a house we could call home within the Lower Mainland and Victoria. Due to our lifestyle we decided to settle in the beautiful city of Maple Ridge. As soon as we contacted John, we were delighted by his professionalism, energy and knowledge, not to mention his friendliness. John went above and beyond in helping us find our home and details on it. Our first meeting with him was the one when we found our place, within a heartbeat we were in love. John went out of his way to help us gather information, even going to City Hall with us. We also had the delight to show the house to our family; John kindly took time during a weekend to meet up with us. He provided amazing care in doing all the paperwork.
John has been there for us at any point of our move preparation, as a first time home buyer we didn’t know a lot and he assisted us in every step. His knowledge on Maple Ridge is so important that any questions we had or have he can answer to them.
It is in a heartbeat that we recommend anyone to use John to find your dream home.
Thank you John for all your hard, generous and passionate work. Thank you for finding us the house that will create our memories, life, happiness and love.
– Shirley & Joel, August 2014
WELL SEASONED REALTOR WITH A KEEN SENSE OF THE REAL ESTATE MARKET
It was a pleasure working with John over the past 2 years. John is able to walk that delicate balance between providing information and direction without being intrusive or pressuring anyone. He was always very helpful and prompt in his communication. John gave us honest feedback and time to discuss and think things through. We appreciated his sincere and honest manner. John is a well seasoned realtor with a keen sense of the real estate market and all its fluctuations. We wholeheartedly endorse his services as a realtor.
– Virginia & Sue, June 2014
THOUGHTFUL AND HELPFUL ALONG THE WAY
Thank you so much for the flowers and the gift card!!! That was so thoughtful of you. We really appreciate it and will stick it to good use once we have settled in.
I am in love with this house and I am so happy we made this change; thank you for helping us along the way!
– Adam & Melissa, May 2014
MADE THE WHOLE PROCESS SMOOTH AND SIMPLE
Thanks for all your time and patience John, you made the whole process smoother and simpler than I had thought it was going to be. I’ll definitely refer your name to anyone I know that is moving. Thanks again.
– Charles, April 2014
GREAT EXPERIENCE AS FIRST TIME BUYERS
We had a great experience working with you. Thanks for putting in so much time with us and always working quickly to help show us homes that we found and wanted to view. Your advice while viewing homes was very helpful, especially as first time home buyers! Also, thanks for the “Our New Home” cards!
– Sarah & Doug, February 2014
MADE A DRAMATIC IMPACT IN OUR LIVES
Thank you so much for your generosity and support for us. You have made a dramatic impact in our lives.
– Joanne, Rebecca, & Elizabeth, February 2014
Thank you very much for your excellent job in selling my house. You got my house sold within relatively short time with a price I am happy with, especially when the market is very slow. I really appreciate all your suggestions on renovating, pricing, etc., and all your professional work during the course of selling. I will definitely introduce you to my friends who want to buy or sell their houses in the future. Thanks again!
– Guang, January 2014
YOUR LEVEL OF THOROUGHNESS
I am impressed with your level of thoroughness & attention to detail. You have answered all our questions and made sure we were given all the information we needed (including info I didn’t know we needed!) to make a decision about the townhouse we were interested in purchasing. Thank you so much!
– Janine & Paul, November 2013
YOUR EXTENSIVE KNOWLEDGE OF THE REGION
Dan and I found your extensive knowledge of the region a real asset through the whole process. Being extremely unfamiliar with the Maple Ridge and Pitt Meadows area, this alleviated some of the stress during the house hunting process. Your assistance in pointing out different features that could positively or negatively affect a property was extremely helpful as well. Buying a first home can be an extremely stressful experience, but with your help, we found it quite an enjoyable one. Thanks again for all your help!
– Melissa & Dan, September 2013
UTMOST PATIENCE WITH AN ELDERLY CLIENT
It was time for our 92 year-old mother to move to independent living and listing her home was not easy for her as she had lived in the area for over 60 years. Without your kindness and patient explanations we do not think she would have carried through with the move that had become necessary. As you worked hard to get a sale completed before her impending move you kept not only her “in the loop”, but both of us, essentially triple the work for you. Thank you for the many visits, handholding and phone calls which helped to make her transition smooth. She is now happily meeting new friends and enjoying life to the fullest.
– Mike & Marilyn, April 2013
Our family is very thankful to John Dale for all his hard work and expertise in selling our house. We were relieved to put our house into his capable hands. He went well above and beyond the typical REALTOR® duties, including getting up on our roof and hanging tarp in the pouring rain. As absentee landowners, he navigated us patiently through the complicated bureaucracy that is involved in selling a house. We appreciate all of his efforts.
– Anita & Don, November 2012
THERE FOR US ALL THE WAY
I cannot express myself enough or even get the right words to thank you. As hard as it was to sell our home, you were there for us all the way. You stood up for us when it was even harder with the banks. Your time management, driving us all around showing us the homes was exciting because you saved me from my driving instructor mom of course. With all the hardship of my mom not well and you selling and buying us a new place, you made it. I almost thought that you were going to quit on us but no, you were very patient, tuff as you know your job well, you still kept your pleasant atmosphere and you gave us hope. We both can never get enough words to thank you. You did an excellent and amazing job. I would not hesitate to refer anyone that I know to you.
– Sipho, June 2012
POSITIVE EXPERIENCE AND LOTS OF FUN
Thank you so much for the tours of Maple Ridge and Mission while we decided where we wanted to live and what type of property we wanted to buy. You were very patient with us while we looked at many different properties – we never felt rushed. As first time buyers in Canada and new to the Maple Ridge area, it was interesting to hear about all the amenities in the area; your local knowledge was insightful and very helpful. We appreciate the prompt response to all of our phone calls and emails and for helping us through the house buying process – it’s been a very positive experience and lots of fun!
– David & Sandra, May 2012
LOT OF EXTRA EFFORT
I would like to thank John for all his hard work selling our estate condo. I feel he put in a lot of extra effort by recommending ideas to improve our chances of selling while I was out of town. I would strongly recommend his services to anyone who is buying or selling a home in the Lower Mainland.
– Jim F., April 2012
TRUST & RESPECT
Our experience with you as a REALTOR® was very positive. I would say that we were always apprehensive when working with someone to find a home, as you have to trust that they understand and respect your needs whether they agree with them or not. Throughout, the long process of both selling our house and purchasing a new one, we found you to have both of these qualities. Your professionalism, and ability to put our needs, ultimate happiness and satisfaction at the forefront of the process, ahead of “making a sale” was greatly appreciated. During the process we had to modify our wish list several times to find a compromise of what we wanted and what we could find, this was received without frustration from your part, again appreciated. We look forward to our new home, and certainly would not hesitate to work with you again on a future purchase or sale.
– Sam & Kim, January 2012
Thank you so much for the incredible gift! That was so very nice. We are still thinking of what we want to get but will let you know when we get it! We also wanted to thank you for the time you spent with us when we were house hunting. You really took all the stress out of buying a house and made it a really fun experience. So thanks again John for everything.
– Chay & Joel, November 2011
FRIENDLY & PROFESSIONAL
John, Thank you for getting the sale of my apartment to this point, only a few days to go until it is complete. I appreciate your thorough handling of all aspects of the sale, from advertising, complying with the requirements of the buyers, advising me on negotiations of the offers and making the very professionalism of the transaction feel friendly. With thanks,
– Joanne M., August 2011
John, I wish to express to you my sincere thanks for all your hard work in the selling of my condo. You went beyond the call of duty and I appreciate that. I would not hesitate to recommend you as a REALTOR®, as your one of the best!
– Enid F., June 2011
John, from the beginning to the end, you never missed a thing. At anytime if Mike or I had a question or a concern you were always there. You made selling our house easy, and you allowed us to be us. In buying a home you were patient, you took us back to the same houses over and over again, just so we could be sure. Thank you again John Dale, you will be the first one we call should we do this again.
– Mike & Tracy, April 2011
Hi Rob thank you so much for the quick sale of our home and leaving us in good hands with John Dale. John was wonderful in handling the last details with our buyers. Have a safe return, see you when you get back.
– Joanne C., March 2011
I wanted to take this opportunity to write you concerning my experience with you as my REALTOR®. We looked diligently for over 3-4 months. All the while, you kept records of the properties we looked at, the ones that I liked and you would assist me by searching for properties that may work for my family. While we were looking for my next home, you acted on my behalf for the sale of my condo. You provided me with key advice on how to get the best price for my condo. John, I want to thank you for your patience, diligence, professionalism and organized approach in helping me sell and purchase my homes.
– Lynne S., March 2011
ABOVE & BEYOND
Stacy and I think that you are a true professional who went above and beyond what we expected. We are so happy with the level of service we received from you and will definitely recommend you to family and friends. Thank you so much for helping us find our new home!
–Terry & Stacy L., August 2010
John, your passion for your work shines through in all you do for your clients. From your attention to detail, your quick responsiveness, and your in-depth knowledge of everything are only a few of the brief characteristics of why it is such a great pleasure to work with you. John, you leave no stone unturned when it comes to your clients. Thank you, once again, for all you have done and I will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone that I know that is in the market of buying or selling real estate.
– Leona L., July 2010
I would like to take this time to say thank you for your effort in selling my home, finding and purchasing another home. Selling or buying a house can be a stressful time. I can honestly say that my experience was not the least stressful, mostly due to your professionalism. You always made yourself available even on short notice. Your knack for seeing beyond the obvious, and the great exposure, made this a pleasurable experience. I will be recommending you to everyone I know who may be buying or selling.
– Mike L., July 2010
After working with you on the purchase of my second place within the last 4 years, I feel you have more experience than most REALTORS®. I had a lot of fear porting my mortgage, but your attention to closing and possession dates got the bank paid off on my old place and a cheque in my hand even before I moved in to my new place. Well done! I couldn’t have made that decision on my own. You also kept me very informed and answered all my questions. The pictures you took of my old place and put on the website were perfect. I feel they sold the place, along with all my hard work on the place. Anyone using you as a REALTOR® should feel confident of a good outcome.
– Ross P., July 2010
I would like to take a moment to tell you how much I have appreciated the time you have spent with me looking at properties in order for me to locate the house of my dreams. The house is lovely and the location is excellent. I feel I will be very happy there. Thanks to your hard work we finally found what I wanted. Thanks again.
– Audry H., June 2010
You were patient while I looked at the many houses that you showed me. I asked a lot of questions and you answered them tirelessly. Thanks for your help.
– Marie E., June 2010
I have to say that I am really happy with the service you have provided us with so far. From my experience buying and selling real estate for the last 20 years, I have not met a REALTOR® that is so thorough, and really interested in the best interests of their client. Thank you. A lot of people have asked me lately who I used for real estate, and I continue to give glowing recommendations that hopefully will transfer into some future listings for you!
– Susanne & Dave E., March 2010
Your customer service and dedication to our needs was outstanding. Your guidance and advice for getting my place ready to list was a huge help as was the actual physical help from you with those few extra preparations. When we started looking to purchase, you were very patient and always available anytime we wanted to view a property. You were able to scope out what both our needs were and find us a house that was 100% perfect for both of us.
– Dave T. & Susan L., February 2010
As our REALTOR® you have provided us with superior service. As we mentioned before, you have an incredible ability to tune in to our needs and wants. With both of our purchases in Maple Ridge we were so happy. You were able to keep our friendship separate from business and in both relationships we trust and respect you very much! The issues we had with this last move and “forgotten” items in our house – again – we could call on you and you put my mind at rest and helped us out. I’m sure that was partially the “friend John” but I have a feeling you would come through for all of your clients if required.
– Duane & Norine B., Rossland
PROFESSIONAL AND PATIENT
You have truly understood the balance between your professional advice and the understanding and opinions of your clients. We were listened to and advised in such a way that the decisions we made felt assured. When the time came to negotiate with the Buyers, I felt that we had a knowledgeable ally.
– Lyn & Richard W., Maple Ridge
GETTING THE JOB DONE
I would like to thank you once again for the excellent service that you provided recently when we listed our home with you. I was very impressed that, thanks to your marketing skills, we had 13 viewings in 14 days. Not only did you sell our home in 2-½ weeks (when the market was stagnant) but you continued to provide assistance to us as we searched for and purchased our house.
– Ron H., Maple Ridge
Thank you so much for all the time and effort spent helping us find our home. It has been a pleasure dealing with you, and you can rest assured that if anyone we know decides to buy in Maple Ridge, we will give them your card.
– Jascha & Andrea W., Pitt Meadows
BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY
Just a quick note to say thank you very much for all the extraordinary effort put forth on behalf of my family. Most REALTORS® would have thrown in the towel long ago- but you are not most REALTORS®. Thank you for everything you did to assist us. I’m sure it wasn’t easy, but again, we really do appreciate what you’ve done.
– Jones Family
I knew I could count on you because you are a dedicated person. You always put your clients first and are an excellent listener. I will never hesitate to pass on your reference to all my friends and family. RE/MAX is proud to have such professionals!
– Mirriam S., Maple Ridge
I’d like to take this time to thank you for all the great advice you gave us while we were selling and purchasing our homes. I know you know how difficult it was to decide on a REALTOR®, but we have never regretted our decision.
– Jackie Q. & Family, Pitt Meadows
