"Don't take my word for it... Below are excerpts from unsolicited letters I've received from past clients."
Dear Mr. Gramuglia
I am writing you today to express our appreciation and gratitude in your assistance in selling our home.
My wife Kim and I required to sell our beloved home of over 10 years due to changing family dramatics.
In processing the decision to sell our home we quickly realized the process would be complex and filled with several pitfalls. We could not navigate the process alone and needed assistance. We interviewed several agents which included a walkthrough of the home as well as discussions of marketing strategies.
Many people assume in today’s market homes sell themselves and you only need to place the for sale sign on the front lawn and sit back and let the offer war begin and all be completed in a flash. This is of course not true.
In our initial meeting we were extremely impressed with your market knowledge, negotiating and marketing strategies and your advice on what tasks would bring the maximum return on our dollar and more importantly, our efforts. We appreciated your candor and your unwillingness to make promises and commitments that you could not guarantee.
We would also like to comment on all the professionals that you brought to the table. We could not have been more impressed with the interior decorator, home stager, and real estate assistant. We found their advice and expertise invaluable. I would like to give special mention of appreciation for your photographer. He was able to clearly show our home in the best light.
The marketing brochure and web listing were clearly professionally prepared. The layouts and descriptions were great. The pictures were outstanding. Too often open house handouts are single photocopied sheets. This can give a less than professional impression. Clearly not the case with your marketing materials.
We were impressed with the way you handled open houses and private showings. We had several apprehensions with having strangers walking through our home when we were not there. We felt you considered our family needs when planning showings.
We believe that at the times of offers and negotiating you kept our needs the top priority. Not just focused on the sale price but the value of the right deal for us.
Even after the deal was done we were extremely impressed with your willingness to stay in touch with us. Keeping us updated as the closing and possession dates approached.
We believe that you and your team were able to help us achieve the maximum value for selling our home. We would be pleased to offer any client or potential client with a reference at any time.
Again thank you very much for you and your team’s efforts.
Everyone knows the phrase "purchasing a home is the biggest financial decision you make". The process of either buying or selling a home can be daunting and emotional. Having recently concluded this process, it is clear that the outcome overall is heavily dependent having the right representation in terms of a Realty Professional.
We decided to work with Vadim Gramuglia and his team in assisting us with the sale of our home and securing our next purchase. This decision has proven to be nothing short of a blessing. From start to conclusion we were kept informed. Vadim presented recommendations based on a broad spectra of research along with candid suggestions on how to best present our home that proved to be spot on.
Team Vadim's standard when it comes to marketing is beyond impressive. Expert staging advise, Professional photography and print material made our home stand out and depict the value. The amount of time Vadim invested in making sure we were part of the process, combined with open house and showings resulted in the fastest and absolute best outcome imaginable.
To sum it up: Secure the very BEST Realty team. We recommend TEAM VADIM without hesitation.

We are very satisfied clients of Vadim and are delighted to prepare this testimonial message to describe our experience. Vadim was our broker for the sale of our home in Coquitlam, B.C. We had been unsuccessful in previous attempts to sell the property at an acceptable price and undertook a competitive search to find the right broker. Following our selection of Vadim, he immediately implemented a comprehensive strategy to market the property. This included excellent photographs for the MLS website and expert use of social media to ensure maximum exposure of the property to the highest probability of potential buyers. Throughout the process he was proactive and honest in his communications with us. Additionally, this sale took place when we were outside of Canada for work reasons. Vadim utilized certified electronic signature technology which worked reliably and efficiently in the transmission of offers and counter proposals within the tight timelines involved, and then to closure of the sale. We have worked with a number of brokers in BC and other provinces. Vadim represents the highest standard of professionalism and client focus that we have experienced. We would recommend him to others without hesitation.

I am pleased to be writing you this letter of thanks for the excellent service you provided as my realtor. Your service is above and beyond compared to the experiences I have encountered with other realtors in the past! You consistently treated me with the highest respect and made this especially clear through your accessibility and responsiveness to my questions and concerns. Your professional friendly demeanor invited me to easily approach you and learn from your expertise and current market knowledge. I was continuously put at ease with your honest, open approach and delightful sense of humor.
I am impressed that you were able to remain results orientated throughout your service while balancing the stressful challenges of the season, my hectic schedule and spontaneous crises. Your excellent communication skills and calm approach kept me focused and on target. It is with your professional guidance that I was able to make informed decisions that helped to produce successful results. Your knowledge, experience and negotiation proficiency resulted in more than I imagined!
Vadim, it is obvious that you possess a high level of integrity and ethical principals that are applied to every aspect of your service. You are by far, the best realtor I have worked with! I will refer your services to anyone I know that needs a realtor, and I will call you in the future for your service again.
Wishing you a future of continued success!
"Vadim has helped us sell 2 homes already and is in the process of helping us find a third. His professionalism and knowledge are unmatched, and he always takes the time to have amazing photos and materials created to help entice buyers. His great ability to network allowed us to find a buyer for our last place before we even signed the papers to list it, which is an amazing asset in a slow market. We can't imagine working with anyone else."

My fiancé and I had almost given up on trying to find a reliable and focused realtor until we found Vadim. There are many qualities that set Vadim apart from the other realtors we dealt with. Those being his punctuality, great people skills, his genuine desire to please his clients and most importantly his honesty.
Vadim is the hardest working realtor that we have come across, we never had to ask him to send new listings and he always set up a number of appointments for us to view on a daily basis.
Although he had other clients, Vadim always made us feel prioritized and our concerns were always taken seriously. Even after we bought our beautiful home, Vadim called to follow up to make sure we were happy and asked if there was anything that we needed. That is service and professionalism that you really don’t find too often.
If I were to sell or buy another home, there is no question that I would contact Vadim to be my realtor once again. He gets the job done and at the same time makes it a pleasurable experience.
It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of reference on behalf of Vadim Gramuglia. I chose Vadim as my realtor for his youth and energetic personality coupled with two characteristics which are very important to me, honesty and integrity.
Vadim surpassed my expectations with regards to these important attributes. He gave me sound advice in presenting offers, and throughout the buying process I always felt that my best interests were foremost in his mind.
I wish to confirm that the services received from Vadim were absolutely first rate in every respect. Vadim demonstrated a thorough understanding of the real estate market. If I were to have any further issues concerning real estate, Vadim Gramuglia would be my first choice.
We would like to thank you for the fast and efficient way you sold our condo. We were approached by many realtors to take over out attempt to sell privately, and we decided on you because your approach was one of quiet confidence. You provided us with all the details of selling our condo and quickly had everything in place, advertising, internet listing etc…. we were especially pleased when you were able to sell it at the price we wanted on the third day.
We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you in the future.

Just wanted to write and thank you for helping us find the house of our dreams...Pam the kids and I are delighted with the house!!
The following is a few words of recommendation to potential customers you might add if you so desire to your website:
The time had come...my wife and I and our four children needed to go out and see what we could do about finding our first new home. Neither of us had ever bought before, so we were babes in the woods when it came to going about starting the process.
It was confusing in the early days, and it remained confusing until we met Vadim Gramuglia. Within half an hour of meeting him I had learned a good deal about the process ahead of us, as well as feeling very relaxed with him. After our second viewing my confidence in him increased even more. Here was a real estate agent that was not pushy, that listened to what we had to say and that answered our questions. His relationship to our family became that rare thing.... personable and still professional.
And then it happened...he showed us the house that has become our home. He made the following steps easy for us...and our dream house was realized!!!
In recommending Vadim I'm not only recommending a fantastic realtor but a great person to work with...in a world of "pushy, fast talking sales people" Vadim is a true gem apart. His approach to his work is that of a true professional.... and should the need arise to use an estate agent again, Vadim will be the first called!!!
