I have recently bought a property in Richmond, BC.  Ms. Aki Li Foster represented as my agent.


I am not a first time home buyer.  This is my fourth one.  For the past three properties, I have used another real estate agent to represent me in buying and selling those properties.  He is also a son of my friend.  But, I was not happy with him dealing things with the other party.  I felt that he just cares about nailing down a deal rather than caring for my best interest.


After all those experiences that I had with him, I found that Aki is the best real estate agent to be working with.  She cares for the best interest of her client.  For example, when I wanted to view the property at my convenient time, she could make it happen.  When it was necessary for me to sign the documents, she drove down to my house in person rather than emailing to me to sign and send it back to her.  Also before making an offer, she gathered all the required documents that I need to have in making a decision.


She is very punctual and professional in doing her job and I believe she never missed a thing in acting as my representative until I could finally make a decision.


I hereby like to give a recommendation with full confidence to Aki for those who need her services for representing you as your real estate agent.

I have recently had the pleasure of utilizing Aki's skills for both the selling of a residence and the purchase of my new home.


Her ability to show my old residence in its best light facilitated for a quick and easy sale; while during the purchase of my new home, I found her attention todetail and her candor an invaluable resource.


Throughout the process at every step she provided the necessary expertise and guidance to make my transition a smooth and flawless one.


A very appreciative thank you,

Recommendation for Aki Li Foster


My experience looking for and purchasing my new home with Aki Li Foster has been one of pleasure and positivity.  She is very knowledgeable of market conditions as well as of all the rules and processes that I was not aware of.


Because of this, I feel she is invaluable for anyone in the market either for buying or selling a property.  And if she doesn't know the answer to your questions, she finds out and follows up with you on a timely basis.


Aki is very professional, cordial, punctual and will really work for you in getting the best property and deal available.  After working with her in the purchase of my new home my only regret was not using her to sell my house before my purchase!


I can recommend no one higher than her in her field in this market.

Dear Aki,


I like to thank you for the effective sale of my North Vancouver property, #428 1633 Mackay Ave.


I have been a party to a large number of residential transactions in the past.  I had however not seen such professionalism amongst numerous real estate professionals that I have been associated with.  Your knowledge, integrity, sensitivity, willingness to work hard and professionalism was truly impressive.


It was a pleasure working with you over the past months and to the successful conclusion of sale and I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family and look forward to working with you again in the future.

Aki was a tremendous help in facilitating both the selling of my house and with the purchase of my new condo.  She made what could have been a very stressful transition manageable, and completed in stages within an agreed upon time frame.  It actually went according to plan.


I initially was hesitant to pay the going rate for agent's fees, especially when informed of competitor's rates.  I was so impressed with Aki at our first meeting that I decided then and there to have her be my agent for what in the end was the purchase of my condo.  In essence, this would be an audition.  She was very  much interested in listing my house with her and arrived with information pertaining to my house and neighborhood that even I didn't know.  I was hesitant to list with Aki initially but after going to a number of viewings with her where she often was more informed than the representing agent for the seller, I changed my mind.  Aki was thorough in her research and seemed to always ask the right questions.  More often than not, Aki provided answers to my questions when clearly other agents weren't able to.  She passed the audition and I felt confident knowing she would be as meticulous and committed to selling my house as she had been with assisting me with my purchase.  I am pleased to report I was absolutely correct in my assessment.


Your diligence, care and hard workd is totally appreciated.  Thank you Aki for all that you have done.  You really did make it easy for me.

Dear Aki,


On behalf of Kuniko and myself, I would like to thank you for handling the sale of our townhouse in such an efficient and professional manner.


Your prompt actions and initiatives helped us to sell the house quickly even though we were faced with a difficult market and conditions.  In particular I appreciated you personally dealing with the strata council and management company, who are difficult to deal with at the best of times, to get all required information and documents in a timely manner.  Also, thank you for driving out all the way to Surry on a regular basis to hold open houses and meet with potential buyers.


Kuniko and I great appreciate all the hard work you put in on our behalf, and we would be happy to recommend your services to our friends.


Best regards,

Dear Aki,


Just a short note to personally extend my sincere gratitude on behalf of the K's, for the very unprecedented speed in which you successfully marketed and sold their West End Condo, especially in this very depressed condo market.


This note is not just to express a sincere thanks to you for having sold the unit within their price expectation and in such a professional and expeditious time frame, but to offer up our appreciation to you, especially for you personal involvement in arranging for the removal of the furnishings, power washing of the patio and the cleaning of the unit and not the least of which, your hands-on assistance in the cleaning and vacuuming of the unit in preparation for the sale.  I am convinced that the unit whould not have sold as promptly, if it were not for your total commitment and expertise.


As a professional engineer who has owned and operated his own consulting firm for over 30 years, I can say without hesitation that I have not had the pleasure of working with someone as professional and dedicated as you Aki.  I was extremely impressed and as I have already stated to you, I intend to recommend your services to all my friends, when and if they are in the market.


Again, on behalf of the Ks, our heartflet thanks to  you Aki, a professional who went beyond the call of duty, to satisfy her client.


Sincerely yours,

Dear Aki,


I would like to thank you for your hard work and effort on the sale of my parents’ house.


You immediately, came and took photos and measurements of the house to be advertised on the net, and I thought you had a very professional way of advertising by sending a colour postcard with info of the house within the neighbourhood.  Also you provided a house inspector to come and write a report on the condition of the house, which gave an insight to any interested buyers.  You held many week-end open houses during our extreme cold winter and kept a list of the people with their various comments.


You frequently, communicated by phone or email to keep us informed in regards to the house.


Thank you for the trips you made out to Richmond to accommodate Marilyn, and the times you came to accompany us to the lawyers, and the offer to help empty the house.


On behalf of Marilyn and myself, it was a pleasure to have you as our agent and I sincerely appreciate your personable work ethics, thank you so much.


Yours truly,


Sharon K-C
