Biography:

"Extensive research, and thorough data analysis, is the most critical component to the expert counseling I provide my clientele. My focus for every project is strategic planning and calculated execution through the dissemination of comprehensive market statistics. This has helped my clients, make the most informed decisions, and achieve the absolute best return for their money."

"I see my real estate practice as a vessel for someone to elevate their lifestyle, remedy an issue, or build financial freedom through investments. My primary objective is to understand your goals. Now and into the future, so I can help you fulfill them."

With a well-tuned understanding of individual community plans and municipal vision statements, I can offer my clients a wider scope of market intelligence, migration, and housing trends. Aside from residential homes, my experience is inclusive of, pre-development bulk sales, investment portfolio management, acquisition and assembly of multi-million dollar development sites, and luxury residences. This is what I was born to do, and it brings me great contentment in helping my clients achieve success."

I have lived my whole life in Greater Vancouver. Thus, I can say that I truly comprehend the multi-cultural fabric of Vancouver and the resulting uniqueness of this area's real estate market. My awareness of Feng Shui will help me to comfortably make recommendations that are best for your home. Also, my ability to speak English, Mandarin, and English allow me to bridge cultural bridges.

Having excelled in the banking industry, I learned early in my career the enormous value of great customer service, financial planning, and real customer satisfaction. In addition, growing up in the home of an investor/developer, I have a real, first-hand understanding of the wants and needs of investors and builders with respect to investment properties, and the intricacies of rezoning, and city bylaws.

I recently had the pleasure of working with James Hau as my realtor in Vancouver, and I cannot express how grateful I am throughout the entire home-buying process. He not only educated me about crucial factors I had not considered before but also exhibited impeccable attention to detail. His expertise ensured that I made well-informed decisions at every stage. What sets James apart is his balance between providing clients with space and freedom while offering invaluable support.

This blend of independence and support made the entire process enjoyable. I highly recommend James Hau to anyone in search of a realtor in Vancouver.

From the very first encounter, it was evident that James Hau was not just any realtor. As first-time apartment buyers, we were admittedly uncertain of the journey ahead. James changed all that with his unparalleled expertise and deep knowledge of the real estate market. One of the most impressive aspects of working with James was his commitment to keeping us informed. He meticulously walked us through every necessary step, alerting us to upcoming costs and actionable items, ensuring there were no surprises along the way. His negotiation skills are nothing short of superior. James efficiently handled the communication with the sellers side, ensuring a swift closing of the deal. It's clear that his decades of experience in the field have honed his abilities in this regard. Beyond his professional acumen, James' personal qualities truly set him apart. His courteous and polite demeanour, coupled with an extraordinary level of patience, made our home-buying journey not just successful, but enjoyable. We wholeheartedly recommend James to anyone looking to purchase a home. With him, you're not just gaining a realtor; you're gaining a trustworthy guide who will lead you with confidence and expertise. Thank you, James, for making our dream of owning a downtown apartment a reality!

If you are looking for the best of the best, there's no need to look further because James Hau at faithwilson Christie's International is the only person you'll need for top line real estate services. With so many agents in the Lower Mainland, it can sometimes be difficult to choose who to work with. Almost everyone in Vancouver knows someone who is a realtor, but it is important to choose the right person with the experience and passion when it comes to such a large financial transaction. I met James almost 4 years ago in 2020 at one of his open houses. As someone who is also in the real estate industry, I've come across many agents. However, I still chose to work with James despite having a plethora of other agents I had a personal connection with that I could've worked with (e.g. friends and family). Recently, James assisted me in the sale and purchase of my properties. The sale was closed for top dollar by his excellent staging and marketing campaign. He was relentless in the negotiation. On the purchase side, there were many challenges along the way but James was patient and communicated very well throughout the process.

James is an amazing realtor! The amount of effort and time he put into walking me through the process is unbelievable. From the first day we met, he spent his entire afternoon walking us through the “big picture.” He has very creative solutions for all our questions. He was always available to provide us with information and suggestions that I need. Every decision that we made, small or big, mattered to him. We felt like we were in good hands. As a first-time home seller, the process was stressful. James was really focused on making sure we were satisfied through the process and with outcome. Overall, we would strongly recommend James to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. He set the highest standards, and truly practice” service above self”!

My mum and I really believe that God led us to James. In the short time that we have known him he has become a part of our family. He was excited to be with us on this journey and listened to our desires and dreams and worked hard to help make it happen. When we found our dream home we needed to sell our existing place and James and his team created a listing with a stunning video which beautifully captured our home and resulted in it selling for an excellent price four days after the open house. What we appreciate about James is that even after the sale and purchase has been completed he still keeps in touch to see how we are settling in.

I have met James during a house showing years before I engaged his service for myself. He is diligent, affable, and knowledgeable. But what sets James to another level is that he will spend the time explaining the market, the potential sales, the potential pitfalls to you and your family. After seeing how hard he works I knew he was the one to sell my house in this difficult market. And even in this tough market James was able to sell my house within a shorter time frame then he estimated. My and my family's overall experience with James is excellent. I highly recommend James and his team in helping you sell your house and find a house for you and your family.

James helped us find an investment property. We were specifically looking for a property that we felt would give a quick return within a 4-5 yr span. James ensured he kept this requirement in mind while offering possibilities. I really appreciated his patience with me as I hadn’t bought or sold property in such a long time and apparently not as organized or up to speed on process as I should have been. James was very helpful and understanding in helping me thru this. We even went so far as to put an offer in and got an outstanding price but something just didn’t feel right to me afterwards. James worked very hard to get us that deal and he didn’t bat an eye to rescind the offer and carry on to find us a property that really fit. We are very happy with our end choice. Thank you James.

(Translated by Google) Mr.James Hau is the best realtor I have ever met. My story is that I am a buyer from Montreal. I fond a condo in Richmond which I am interested. But the list agent didn't provide much information and pictures or 3D tour . So I tried to Email some agents and even the list agent hope to get more information. But I had no ONE answer . Maybe because I am from Montreal , nobody think I am serious. Than I selected James randomly from rew.ca because he has five stars reviews from people. Right after I email James, the list was taken off the MLS list. I thought the property was sold. But l got a call from James not long after I sent him an email. He promise me he will contact the list agent to see if it was sold. He found out the property was not sold. He did a video walk through the property with me via FaceTime. From writing offer to find a home inspector, a notary for closing sale everything goes smoothly without I fly to Vancouver. So I highly recommend mr. James Hau as you realtor no matter you're buying or selling. Because he is very responsible and care about you. He keeps you informed how the process goes once a while and you absolutely not have to be anxious about how things going. And in here I say thank you James again !

James Hau 先生是我见过的最好的房地产经纪人。 我的故事是我是一個蒙特利爾買家。 我在網上看中列治文的一套公寓,我很感兴趣。 但是賣家經紀没有提供太多信息和图片或者3D視頻。 所以我尝试给一些代理甚至賣方經紀发送电子邮件,希望获得更多信息。 但我没有收到任何一個經紀的答覆。 也许因为我来自蒙特利尔,没有人认为我是认真的。 於是我从 rew.ca 随机选择James ,因为他有五颗星的评价。 在我剛给James 发邮件后,这个物業就从 MLS 名单中删除了。 我还以为房子卖了。 但是在我给他发了一封电子邮件后不久,我就接到了James 的电话。 他向我保证他会联系賣方經紀、看看它是否已售出。 他发现房子没有卖掉。 他通过 FaceTime 与我一起在房产中进行了一段视频看房。 从写offer 到寻找驗屋師及完成销售的公证人,一切都顺利进行,无需我飞往温哥华。 因此,无论您是购买还是出售,我都强烈推荐 James Hau 先生作为您的房地产经纪人。 因为他很负责,很关心你。 他会不时让您了解该过程的进展情况,您绝对不用為了事情的进展情况而焦慮。James 絕對係一個你可信賴的經紀。在此我都要再次多謝JamesHau先生.
