We met Alexis at an Open House recently and my husband and I unexpectedly (and surprisingly) found our perfect future home. Alexis was there to get the ball rolling for us quickly.
Alexis helped us navigate through the process of making an Offer for our purchase, effectively and with enthusiasm.
She is kind, competent and fought for our side of the deal.
We would definitely choose to work with her again.

Alexis immediately impressed my wife and I when Alexis was doing an open house in our building. She was professional, friendly, and very knowledgeable, so we invited her to look at our place because we were thinking of selling our place if a larger unit came available in our building. She told us what she expected the unit she was selling would go for, and a few days later it was sold for $500 more than what she expected. A week later, a desirable unit became available in our building, and we had to move fast if we were going to be able to buy it. Consequently, we called Alexis, and she showed us
comparables for the neighbourhood and also provided information about recent sales. With that information and Alexis’s advice, we made a clean offer with a sizeable down payment, which enabled us and her advice was crucial in our being able to outbid 4 competitors and buy that unit.
When we sold our condo, Alexis advised us to de-clutter and to repaint the unit. We relied on her expertise and she chose a colour that really brightened up the unit and made it more marketable.
Our situation was complicated because we had a cruise booked, and we couldn’t get out of it. We had to leave before the place had been painted. Alexis told us not to worry about anything and go on the cruise because she would take care of everything. And she did just that! She organized the painting and the cleaning of the place in preparation for pictures and open houses. She even spent time on her own to stage and decorate the place. When we returned, we discovered that Alexis had transformed our condo! It had never looked better and looked great in pictures and in the open houses. Consequently, less than a week after listing, there were 5 offers for our condo and it was sold for much more than asking. In fact, it sold for much more than what Alexis had indicated that we could expect. In less than three weeks, we had bought the condo we had been searching for, gone on a cruise, and sold our condo for an excellent price that exceeded our expectations. None of that would have been possible without Alexis’s excellent advice and her eagerness to go above and beyond the call of duty. I have bought and sold several houses and condos in my life, and Alexis Allen is by far the best realtor I have ever been privileged to work with because she really knows the market and tailors her strategies to ensure success when buy and selling. If we ever sell our new condo, Alexis will be the first person we call.
When deciding who to pick for my realtor I wanted someone to be there for me through the whole process of selling and buying. Through this search I found Alexis Allen who was professional, classy informative, knowledgeable and guided us through the entire process start to finish. Thanks to her sound advice about the current market, timing and importance of pricing it right from the start, our Townhouse Sold in less than week and Way Above Asking Price! She also found us a new Condo very quickly. My experience with Alexis was great and a very smooth transition. I would highly recommend this lady. It was a fabulous experience.

We just want to thank you for all your help and advce in buying our condo. We had a specific area in mind and you were accommodating in showing us many suites for sale. You advised us that the market was on the upswing and that if we saw something we liked we should act on it quickly. Boy, were you ever right about that! We definitely would have missed out on the condo we chose as the market soon took off and prices started to rise quickly. We appreciated your expertise with making the offer and all the paperwork that goes along with this. You took the time to explain all the key points so we knew what were were signing. Somehow, what could have been a very stressful process seemed to go smoothly and we kknew were in capable hands! We would not hesitate to recommend you to any friends or family who may be considering buying or selling their home. Thanks again Alexis.

Alexis Allen is a very thorough Real Estate professional. She took the time to walk us through our first ever sale. Thanks to her expertise, we were able to price out our home and sell it within One Week for Over Ask Price. She made it very easy and painless for us and would definitely hire her again.

What amazing experience . Alexis made my dream come true . She listened to my wants and needs, absorbed and identified exactly what I was looking for. We found my beautiful home after only 3 short trips. After the sale, I found a bees nest in the grape vine in my backyard... she even looked after getting it removed for me, by hiring a pest control company to look after it, before my move . I highly recommend her to everybody Thanks Alexis again!

I met Alexis based on my family's recommendation of a Realtor. I found her to be a very good listener, one who truly listens to her Clients needs and wants and only satisfied once their most important purchase is met. During our search in Maple Ridge for my Townhouse, I found Alexis to be very obliging, extremely professional in her approach and very quick to bring us up to date with listings as soon as they appeared on the market. She worked within my time schedule which I really appreicated, as I was coming to and from Vancouver Island...and time was of the essence! Her engaging smile and ready wit made my purchase much less stressful. I was unfamiliar with the areas she took us to but soon brought us up to speed educating us about them...she kindly offered to pick us up and drive us to each viewing destinations. I would highly recommend Alexis for any of your Real Estate needs. To our family she will always be a sincere friend as well as any extremely capable professional Agent.

We met Alexis at an Open House in Port Moody. We soon started working with her and she quickly started sending us new listings as they came onto the market and she set up promply private viewings to show us. She explained out of the gate that it was a Seller's market with low inventory and that properties sell quickly and in most cases in this market, in many instances for Over Asking Price and many Multiple Offers. When we found the property we wanted to put an offer on, we in fact found ourselves in a Mulitple Offer situation with 3 other competing offers. Alexis's recommendations Won the Bid for us! Her excellent advise got it done...Great Work Alexis! We are very happy with our Purchase and thought we would have to pay alot more, but all towards our end result...yeah!

As a First Time Home Buyer, there are a lot of legal terms and therefore, a lot of questions that need answering. Alexis was there for all of my how's, why's and when's. I had an idea of where I wanted to be location and price wise and she was on it. I appreciated her honesty when a place wan't the best choice. She was full of the right advice and didn't let me give up when some offers didn't go my way, (she warned me the market was HOT!). In the end, it all worked out and found the Perfect place. Thank you for all your help and for remaining try professional in my moments of panic about such a huge purchase. I would not hesitate to recommend Alexis to anyone.
When it was time to list our property, we thought of Alexis, mainly because of the impression she made on us when we met at an Open House sometime earlier. She is enthusiastic and personable and it is apparent that she enjoys the work that she does.
Whe we contacted Alexis, she was was prompt in responding and was available and flexible to our needs and schedules. From the first meeting she was well prepared, efficient and knowlegable. Our property was professionally marketed and Alexis took extra steps to make sure things were ready so that the property showed well at the Open Houses. For these reasons, Alexis helped to ensure the best possible outcome for our property and received Multiple Offers and Over Asking Price in a short time frame.
We are grateful for a very smooth and seamless sale of our property. We were very happy with Alexis's professionalism and thorough work and would not hesitate to recommend Alexis for her cheerful professional and efficient execution.
