Good Morning Bob: We realise this should have been done sooner, but moving is not an easy job. We wish to thank you Bob for all that you have done for us by selling our house in this uncertain time during Covid 19. You worked hard for us and were always there when we needed answers. We had two good “Open Houses” and then the Covid 19 struck and everything went dead for a while. You encouraged us time and time again and slowly the market was getting better and people started looking again and before we knew it you sold our home. We always had a lot of questions and you had the patience to answer them all. You came over on regular times to let us know where we stood and explained it all, even when you took some fishing trips you were only a phone call away and always let us know where you were and kept in touch. Your kindness and support was very much appreciated and you became a friend as well. Bob may God bless you in your future endeavors, we wish you the best.
Thank you so much Bob for taking all the stress out of the sale of our house. My wife and I were amazed at your professionalism and friendliness in dealing with us regarding this important asset.
We thought our sale would be a challenge since we wanted the possession date a year down the road. Bob assured us that it would not be a problem and he was true to his word. The house sold within 30 days and we do not have to move out till the last day of 2018.
Bob was not afraid to incur a lot of expense to facilitate the sale expeditiously by organizing and paying for a professional measuring of the square footage of the house, staging the house, and hosting a luncheon for realtors in the house provided by a top drawer restaurant.
He has a very optimistic outlook and is exceptionally good at problem solving if there is difficult behaviour by some of the parties.
In short, he is a pleasure to work with as he is good at solving issues before they even occur. We heartily recommend him.
Sincerely Roman and Lori.
A huge and well deserved THANK YOU to Bob and his team for their professional skills, competence and enthusiasm in marketing and ultimately quickly selling our farm property. Even a clean, well maintained and productive property requires an informed and detailed approach for sale. This was achieved by Bob and his teams exemplary work ethic and the beautiful, colourful brochure that highlighted the home and property. There was always constant informative communication with everyone involved. My wife Lori and I most certainly recommend our realtor Bob Edwards and his dynamic team to get the job done.

Our experience with Bob Edwards Real Estate Group was very impressive. From the moment we met Bob and his team we felt confident their marketing plan would get us full value for our property. No expense was spared to achieve maximum market exposure. Communication and overall service was exemplary.
Peter and Inge.
Not sleet nor snow or rain or shine will deter Bob from selling mine!

Dear Bob and prospective clients: As you know we had our home on the market for almost 3 1/2 years, with 3 other realtors, with no success.The last one before you, I was told he was the finest realtor in the nation, with world wide contacts. After a long spell with them, they did an open house for realtors, and I kid you not, there was not one realtor that showed up for the event. I must however admit that the realtor did help us sole the problem with a recliner we had. Shortly after that we switched to Bob. Jan and I felt very comfortable working with Bob. He wasted no time getting our listing out to hundreds of agents. Ads, an 8 page full color photo presentation of our homes highlights and the whole 9 yards. Bob sent invitations to many potential agents for a luncheon at our home with a truckload of food that pleased the 70 plus agents that came. Bob did not leave any stone unturned. He never waited to see the results of each project, but just kept coming up with more ideas. Bob exceeded his promises by far. In less than 3 months he brought the ideal family! They looked at the home one day and signed the deal the next. We are thrilled with the new owners who love our "dream home". One final caution note: Be prepared for the best attention you could ever receive, and be prepared to add a new friend to your life. The sale of your home is only the beginning with Bob Edwards.
Just a quick note to let you know you are unique. Different from most realtors I deal with. I have been in this business for 25 years and still love it. It is mostly about the relationships with my valuable clients. But there is another side to the business. Our relationship to other realtors. Very few communicate the way you do. It is usually me checking in to see how the process is going or confirming contact info, dates and times. You are so proactive and that is so refreshing to me and my clients. Can't wait to be involved in another transaction with you.
I feel we could do most of our business with just a handshake.
Eva and Ken.
Dear Bob,Words cannot express our gratitude for your kindness, openness, honesty, and generosity towards us. You are truly a servant of God. We thank you for all you have done for us and many others.
Bob, Honesty and integrity don't come naturally to everyone, but with you I can tell you were born with it. You will go far in this business my friend.
Martin and Jennifer
Rest assured that in the short time remaining here should anyone ask we will be recommending your services. You were both professional and personable throughout the selling process! I would say you went beyond the norm in your efforts to effect a sale on our behalf.
Bob made everything easy to understand with the selling process, making sure I was comfortable with each step before proceeding. He went above and beyond to get top dollar on the sale of my condo. Communication was timely and specific. Bob did all the hard work with setting up contacts and details so that everything from listing to showings to accepting an o er resulted in the best result for me. With my crazy schedule, this was an essential piece. Made the selling process a breeze for me. We achieved an excellent result and that I understood each step of the process clearly before moving forward with decision making. Bob genuinely cares about all of his clients and works hard to make you happy. I look forward to having him find my next property soon!
Dave and Diane
Our overall experience was very good, Bob was very professional, polite, and personable. He was very thorough thru the process and made sure we were comfortable with everything he was doing. From the beginning Bob walked us through the process, his professionalism with having an open house and providing brochures that were beautiful made the selling of our home very easy – He was very excited about selling our home and making sure we received the utmost exposure for a fast and profitable sale.
You were very patient in working with the renter who was living in the home. You also did a superb job negotiating with the various interested parties to get the best deal for us. Your efficiency and confidence and knowledge of the market conditions with helped us get the best deal possible. Also, the fact that your knowledge is always based on the many hours you spend on researching current market trends. You are golden like a shiny star and there is simply no room for improvement !
Thanks for the outstanding work that You have been doing upon my behalf Bob and I must say that after over 50 years of dealing with Realtors my experience with what you have already done is unique and very frankly completely unrivalled and I am very very impressed. I feel that our relationship is going to be much more important than a mere business relationship and I already believe that our paths were destined to merge.
Stuart and Jane Miller
It is our wish to express our sincere satisfaction and gratitude for the service and assistance you provided in the sale of our home.
You first came to my attention a few years back when you started listing several homes in our neighborhood.
What really caught our attention was that although the housing market was quiet at that time, the homes that you were listing were sold much more quickly than many others. When it came time to discuss listing our home, you presented a sound business plan together with your sensible advice regarding the sale of our house which convinced us to list with you.
Of particular note has been the superb professional photographs you had taken and the marvelous brochures of our home. Simply gorgeous, no effort was spared to ensure that our home was presented at it’s best.
The requests for individual viewings were frequent. Combined with a Saturday and Sunday Open House resulted in well over 100 couples viewing, 25 with Realtors. It was simply incredible, almost too much to believe, incredibly busy and all managed at the house with the utmost professionalism of your team.
The result was multiple offers within 3 days of listing, all considerably over the listing price. The negotiations are where deals are lost and made. Your past business experience in handling such matters was a huge asset and the way you handled those was exceptional.
Bob, you and your team all have unreserved highest recommendation for Real Estate Services.
Thank you for such a fantastic result
Super! Bob was very patient in working with the renter who was living in the home. He also did a superb job negotiating with the various interested parties to get the best deal for us.
Bob's services exceeded our expectations because we could have full confidence in his abilities as we are no longer living near by we could rest assured that he had our back.
Your efficiency and confidence and knowledge of the market conditions helped us get the best deal possible. Also, the fact that your knowledge is always based on the many hours you spend on researching current market trends.
Nothing could have been better! You are golden like a shiny star and there is simply no room for improvement !(:
We would you recommend you to our family and friends!
Extremely well executed marketing materials (great photos) and excellent follow up. I also appreciate the very low pressure attitude displayed when the first offer came through. Your willingness to wait out my reluctance helped secure an over asking sales price. Thank you!
I had very high expectations because of my experience with you selling my last home. You did not disappoint and once again provided solid research, excellent marketing and market knowledge. Great job….again.
There was nothing to dislike and a caring attitude was greatly appreciated. I truly believe you had nothing but my best interests at heart.
I don’t see how you could top it.
I met Bob through a mutual acquaintance and immediately liked his enthusiasm. He is such a likeable person and very straightforward that you feel confident that you are putting your home in good hands. He kept in constant contact during the preparation of my home and even helped with staging my home and made other suggestions which were very helpful.
My house went on the market on a Friday and by Monday evening I had an offer for the full advertised price. This party ultimately became the successful buyer of the property. Bob also arranged with the new owners for me to stay on as a renter until I found another place to move to. Bob’s service has been above and beyond anything I had anticipated!
I have always dreaded having to deal with realtors but found that selling my home was made so much easier with Bob Edward’s contacts and leg work. I can assure anyone planning to sell or buy real estate either as their home or as an investment, your best bet is to talk to Bob Edwards first because of his enthusiasm, honesty and personal contacts in the Fraser Valley and Vancouver area. You have nothing to lose and so much to gain.
- our home was listed for 2 1/2 months between May-July 2014 with a “friend” who was a Realtor and she was unsuccessful.
- our home was then listed for 4 months between August-November with a family of 3 Realtors and they were unable to sell our home.
- our home was listed for 2 weeks with Bob and his team in late December and it was sold for over 98% of our asking price!
Whom you choose to represent you in the sale of your home makes all the difference! We received 2 recommendations to go with the Bob Edwards Real Estate Group and they didn’t disappoint. I, like every other home owner, want one main thing in the selling process, to get the job done! They were friendly, professional, responsive and results oriented. What else could a home owner ask for? They sold my home in 2 weeks during the Christmas season when all the other realtors we interviewed said to wait until January, after the holiday season. My advice … stop looking … these guys will sell your home for a great price in a timely manner. Call them today!
“Ed and I would like to personally thank you for the excellent job you did on selling our Penthouse in Abbotsford. You were very professional and accommodating. You were always available for answering any questions we might have. Thank you for the lovely brochure you made up for your clients, which showcased our property so very well. Everyone who saw it appreciated it and commented on being able to take the brochure away with them. Again, thank you for a job well done. It was a pleasure working with you and we will recommend your services to others.”
Marjorie and Pat
“I've been meaning to drop you guys a note all week, but I've been too busy relaxing!
I want to thank both of you for everything you did to make our sale go smoothly. It was so great to get the cleaners in after we got all our things out of the house. What a treat! I am pretty sure you will have some more clients when our neighbors decide to sell, as we have sung your praises to all.“
“It is from my personal experience that I highly recommend talking to Bob Edwards if you are thinking of buying or selling real estate. Bob has performed with unmatched professionalism and enthusiasm for myself as well as for the people I have referred to him. I believe his lifelong sales experience along with his desire to bring positive results for his customers will serve you well and ultimately bring you success.”
Ben & Louise Langelaar
“We would like to express our appreciation for the great service we received from you in the sale of our home. You were honest, forthright and positive in your approach resulting in a sale within a few weeks and after having the home on the market for an extended period with someone else. We appreciate the aggressive approach you took in marketing the home as shown by your upfront investment in marketing material and advertising. Couldn’t ask for a better service and result. Thanks!”
“I would like to thank Bob Edwards and his team for the efficient and friendly service they provided during the recent sale of my Condo and in the purchase of my new town home. You were exceptional in guiding me through all the required steps needed for the completion of the various transactions. After living in one place for close to 18 years, it was a big decision to downsize. Your expertise gave me confidence and I was truly amazed at the number of showings in one month and then of course…. the accepted offer. I appreciated the professional approach to your marketing. The brochure was impressive!
Good communication was a very important aspect for me…you were on every detail and kept me informed on a daily basis…I appreciated that immensely.
On behalf of my family and for myself, I would like to say a BIG Thank You! I would recommend your Team approach and services to anyone looking for a hardworking and honest Real Estate Team.”
Wishing you continued success,
Jan & Darlene Smid
““We would like to thank Bob and his team for the great work performed in selling our home in one day. Their individual strengths make for a formidable and professional team. Their proactive marketing strategy started immediately, with showings even before our home was officially listed. Beyond the great job done by Bob and his team, we felt like we made a real connection personally and consider Bob and his team is a team we can count on for support and advice ‘after sale’ as we complete our move. Bob and his teams approach was refreshingly positive and upbeat and they came through. They walked the talk! Bob’s countless business contacts over a lifetime of entrepreneurial endeavours allowed Bob to find a family we believe to be as appreciative of our home and property as we were living there for twenty years.
Many thanks to Bob and his team. I’m sure they will have great success due to their work ethic and integrity.”

Bob Edwards listed our home after a lengthy listing period had expired with another agent. We were by no means unhappy with the first agent’s service, but Bob presented me with a marketing package that I found very attractive (marketing is my background, so I was quite intrigued by his approach), and so decided to give him the opportunity. He immediately went to work arranging a realtor tour by way of direct invites to the realtors he felt were most likely to have clients in our market range. He also hired a professional photographer and provided first class printed materials, considerably better than anything I had seen previously in the market. It was not long before showings were being arranged (by some of those very realtors he went out of his way to ensure attended the realtor open house) and soon afterwards, an offer was presented. I was initially insulted by the low offer and told him I didn't even want to respond with a counter offer, but he convinced me to allow him to work with the clients to see if he couldn't get them closer to the asking price. After much hard work on his part, and a lot of hard negotiation, we accepted an offer close to our asking price. Well done Bob! Bob is proof that hard work DOES make a difference in real estate. To add icing to the cake, Bob told us we did not have to clean our house after move out because he was hiring a crew to come and do that for us. Can't tell you how appreciated that was. To top it off, Bob helped us find and negotiate a great price on our current house and had his ladies come and clean before we moved in. A very classy gesture. I highly recommend the Bob Edwards and his team.

Bob is awesome and very easy to work with! He heard our concerns for the need to sell quickly. We had our home on the market for 6 months with very few appointments but within days of listing with Bob we had more walk-throughs than we had in the entire 6 months combined, and they didn't stop until the house was sold. Bob immediately put in a multidimensional marketing plan which included professional first class brochures, top-notch signage, a special luncheon at our home for top producing agents, weekly open house with another fabulous collaborating colleague, professional photography, mailers, and more. He even provided a staging consultant and unexpected after-sale services. The first time we met with Bob he told us we had a real estate agent for life. Bob lived up to that end so well that we even bought our next home from him...and he found it for us. When we sell or buy again, Bob will be the one we will call. We highly recommend Bob and his team to anyone wanting a go-getter agent.
