"We knew Hassen could get the job done this time around and make our dreams become a reality. Not one to sugar coat anything, and always staying positive and responsive. Hassenn sold our condo within the first Open House weekend and got two offers. With that being said and the market so crazy, we had to bid on 7 homes before we got our dream home after, and all the while through he stayed positive and reassuring. Hassenn is an absolutely great realtor to deal with. He works tirelessly for everyone, making you feel like you are the only client he has on his list. Yet we all know, we are one of so many. Great Job Hassenn, our little family of five is so very happy in our forever home!"

"I had the best experience selling my house with Hassenn,"The Good Guy" of Remax All Points Realty. Having bought and sold numerous homes over the years the word that best describes my experience with Hassenn is "impressive". Being a single mother of three the mere thought of preparing for open houses and showings was daunting. Never before has a realtor made selling my home less stressful. Hassenn took the bull by the horns. He told me exactly what to do and how to do it alleviating so much of my stress and instilling the sort of confidence in him that I needed. From beginning to end Hassenn made the process seamless."

"When I finally decided I was ready to sell the house that I lived in for 24 years and raised my children in,
I needed to find a realtor that would understand my situation. My home did not have fancy updates and was
in need of minor repairs, yet there was a pride I had in this house. Selling a home is an emotional experience
for me, not just a financial experience.
I received one of Hassenn's advertisements in the mail and was immediately drawn to the 'good guy' motto
and set up an appointment. Hassenn came well prepared and explained the market, generally and specifically,
leaving me information to review after he left, all the while making good eye contact with me. My strategy
is to always get three estimates, and in this case interview 3 realtors, so I did. This took a bit of time and
Hassenn was right on in checking up on me but not pressuring me. In the end, I was convinced he had the
right attitude to getting my house sold. Hassenn gave me a range of numbers to list the house at, and
in the end, it was my decision what we listed it at. The house went on the market on April 2 and on April 5,
Hassenn had three offers for me to pick from. The house sold that night for over listing price, which far
exceeded my expectations.
The idea of selling my home frightened me at times, and I am 100% pleased with my choice to list with
Hassenn as he made it easy. Thank you Hassenn for your great service!."

"Hassenn did a wonderful job in helping us find the investment property we were looking for. He listened to our needs and preferences, answered our many questions, and communicated promptly and thoroughly via e-mails and telephone calls. We were impressed by his professionalism, organization, and efficiency when lining up viewings for us. During a number of viewings, we met realtors (representing sellers) who were rather unprofessional in their approach. Some were rather “tacky” and would say anything in their attempt to “encourage” us to buy their particular property. What was refreshing for us was that Hassenn never ever pushed us to buy. He encouraged us to take our time, familiarize ourselves with various types of property, and wait for the right property to come our way. He always emphasized making an educated decision… never a hasty one. He never tried to sway us in a particular direction when our opinions or initial impressions of a property differed. Instead, he remained objective and would provide us with his expert advice (frequently backed up by research and supporting data) when appropriate. Hassenn is not only a “good guy”, he is a calm, cool, classy (yet casual) guy who made looking for and purchasing an investment property comfortable, easy, and painless. We highly recommend him!"

"The moment I met Hassenn I felt the professionalism and care as a friend in him. He was not the usual Realtor that would rush you, especially he knows that I needed to buy a place to live right away. I was very impressed how he handled my transaction, all the information he provided that I needed to know and most especially he got me the price that I can afford and the place I fell in love with the first time I saw it.
From the time I met Hassenn and the time we funded the mortgage, it was approximate 1 month and it went very smoothly. Now sitting in my living room and looking at my place, I think of Hassenn as I would never have done it without him. Thank You very much Hassenn, more clients and all the happiness to you"

"I liked that you didn't just show me places but you helped inform me a certain things as a new buyer I would not have known. I like that you educated me with out telling me what to choose so I could make an informed decision with the knowledge that you provided. I will definitely be using Hassenn in the future when I decide to upgrade to a large place. He was well informed and provided me with information as a new home owner I did not think about or know. I am glad I used Hassenn and look forward to seeing him again when I purchase in the future."

The services provided by Hassenn were beyond any I have ever seen compared to any other realtor and I will recommend this realtor to all of my friends.

"My family was blown away by how professional, experienced and fast Hassenn was. He made the sale of our house an easy, and pleasant experience. He is an excellent communicator; we always knew exactly what was going on from day to day and he spent a lot of time discussing and explaining details to us. He was prompt, timely and relaxed and had all the qualities we looked for in a realtor. He is also a very nice person with a great sense of humor. We look forward to the opportunity to recommend Hassenn to our friends and will definitely call him again if we ever are in need of a realtor. Thank you for a job extremely well done."

"The process of selling your home can be daunting. Working with Hassenn from the time we began our renovation until the date of the final sale made the experience much easier than I had anticipated. Through his clear communication skills, he listened to our needs and provided us with honest feedback and the advice of many years of experience. At a time when the market was not favorable for vendors, Hassenn's efforts surpassed our expectations, selling our house in only 11 days! I will certainly recommend his services to anyone considering changing homes. Your service was above and beyond what I had expected. Thanks Hassenn!"

"Hassenn is a dedicated, professional realtor who works hard to match the buyer with their requirements when purchasing a home. Hassenn helped us to relocate from Ontario, and guided us through the process. With Hassenn's great knowledge of the area, we were able to purchase in an area that was perfectly suited to our needs and budget. He worked with us diligently until we were able to zero in on the ideal property for us. We could not have found it without him. Hassenn comes with our highest recommendation, and he will be handling any of our future real estate transactions."

"Hassenn is a professional through and through and this is evident from the way he markets your home for sale to the effort he puts into researching prospective properties to buy. We worked with Hassenn to sell our home in the suburbs in four days!
He paid for staff to stage our home before buyers toured. Rearranging furniture and paying attention to not so obvious touch up helped to make our home more saleable. When it came to buying our dream condo in the city, Hassenn got us into the right place in the right neighbourhood for the best price. He's a great negotiator, definitely someone who's on your side! No question or concern is too small, he's got great energy and he takes his profession seriously.
I've worked with two other realtors in the past and got the feeling that they were in it for the quick sale. Hassenn offers quality service and cares for his clients with an aim to keeping them for a life time. He'll be helping me to sell my next property...and the next..."

"Hassenn was a pleasure to work with right from the beginning. He is very professional, honest, reliable, and hard-working. He is patient and understanding and is only satisfied when his client is satisfied. We are thrilled about our new home and Hassenn made this whole experience as stress-free as he possibly could. Thank-you Hassenn, we will be conducting business again very soon."

"We chose Hassenn to be our realtor and he has since become a family friend.
Before we hired Hassenn, we were planning to sell our home ourselves, because we thought that using a realtor was an extra and unnecessary expense. Once Hassenn explained what he would do to help us sell our home, we decided to list with him, and we are very glad that we did.
We found Hassenn to be professional. He listened carefully to our needs and provided us with ample information to help us set the best price for our home. He stepped us through the entire process, ensuring that everything was in order and carefully explained what we could expect. He even went the extra mile to help us make our home presentable for sale, so that we could get the maximum value for it.
Hassenn was patient with us and demonstrated to us that his primary interest was to satisfy us as long term clients and not simply "make a quick sale\" at our expense. He sold our condo in a couple of weeks with the highest price in the complex.
We have and will continue to recommend Hassenn to our friends and family, and would definitely use him for our next purchase and sale."

"I would like to tell you about one of our best experiences since we have come to Canada, and that was being introduced to Hassenn, “The Good Guy”. It was September and we wanted to purchase an apartment with our limited budget. Before meeting Hassenn we had called another agent and after two weeks he called back to tell us “there is nothing in market within your budget” and he never called us back.
Then we made an appointment with Hassenn. I can’t say how much we enjoyed talking with him for the first time. He came to our house, he explained almost everything before we asked him. He gave us lots of information and he emotionally prepared us for our decision.
After that he worked with us and even though we visited so many places, he never forced us to make a decision. He wanted to know exactly what we were looking for. When we went together to visit a home, he looked at it from the point of view of living there and tried to find both negatives and positives. After each visit he explained the history of the place like history of the building and so on. He became a “professional viewer.”
He was so patient and friendly, and he helped to keep us from getting too excited when we saw a home for the first time. He never cancelled an appointment and he was punctual. Besides that, his manner was like that of a close friend and it was as if we had known each other for a long time. After we had found what we wanted, Hassenn purchased the apartment we wanted for a reasonable price for us.
From the beginning he was with us until we signed the papers. He also gave us the names of several different companies for inspectors, lawyers, cleaning and moving...
I just wanted to say:
your help and friendship was the best gift for us and we are proud to have you as a friend. You are really the Good Guy! and we hope the best for you and your family. We enjoy living in what you have purchased for us and we appreciate the help you gave us."

"Hassenn was very accommodating, and good at listening to our needs. He always had our best interests in mind, and was happy to let us set the home search pace. Once we found the right house for us he did an excellent job helping to negotiate the best possible price - not an easy task in a hot market like the one Vancouver is currently experiencing. It was then time to sell our current home, and we once again turned to Hassenn. This ended up being a very painless process as well, and within a day of listing our condo we had an accepted offer at a price much higher than we had originally expected to obtain."

I am writing to thank you for your excellent work in the sale of my house at **** West King Edward in Vancouver. In particular, I would like to acknowledge your professionalism and integrity.
The sale of a home is normally a high-pressure experience. In our case, this could have been particularly true. For one thing, we were dealing with a changing and atypical market. Because of the exposure you gave the listing, we saw a tremendous amount of initial interest, yet buyers were taking several days to make an offer. Then, during an open house, our crawl space flooded.
Despite the slow response of the buyers, and despite their realtors best efforts to present their offers separately, you were able to diplomatically coordinate the presentation so that we actually had three simultaneous offers. Because of your professional demeanour, you were also able to keep the flooding issue in perspective. Finally, I felt your analysis of the separate offers, and guidance on the countering process, was "on the money." We sold the home without any subjects, and without any hitches.
While I am certain there was a lot of effort behind the scenes, none of the stress reached me. As I indicated at the beginning of this letter, I attribute this to your professionalism, which ensured that each dealing proceeded smoothly, and to your integrity, which allowed me to trust that your advice was always offered in my best interest. This confidence is of great value when dealing with such large sums of money, so I was pleased to have chosen you as my realtor.
I hope that you will not hesitate to use me as a reference in the future."
(sold MLS home in Vancouver)
"I found Hassenn both knowledgeable and helpful in my search for a home. I did not get any pressure from him to buy, even after I changed directions in what I was looking for and in what area of town. He helped me with what to look for and what to look out for when buying a home, especially if and when a person wants to turn around and sell his or her home.
He was informative and courteous at all times and had a friendly, jovial personality that helped me feel confident and comfortable with who I was dealing with when it came to the biggest purchase of my life. I would definitely not hesitate to recommend Hassenn to anyone looking for a real estate agent. A friend initially recommended him to me and for this I am truly grateful."

"I was trying to sell my home by myself for a while, but I couldn't. I decided to hire a realtor. I know a few realtors, and I spoke to them all. After talking to Hassenn, and seeing some of his marketing materials and his plan, I was convinced "The Good Guy" was a professional realtor who could sell my home at the best possible price with the least possible inconvenience. I was right! Hassenn proved to be not only courteous and honest, but also a hard worker. He answered all my questions, and I know he spoke to many potential buyers and other realtors. Throughout the process, he updated me with other listings in my area, to keep me current with the market. I was very happy with his service. The Good Guy sold my home in 24 days, at a price I'm very happy with, and I am recommending him as the realtor to trust to my friends and family."

I would like to extend my best wishes to Hassenn in the future and will highly recommend his services to my family and friends. Thank-you Hassenn."

"Acting as our realtor for the last 4 months, I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate and commend you for the hard work you performed resulting in the purchase of our first home. It is exactly what we were looking for and we are very excited about occupying the new space as soon as possible.
We feel that your training as an engineer has influenced your methodical and professional approach as a realtor. Also, your exceptional interpersonal skills promoted excellent communication with us and the selling parties as we filtered through prospective properties. Many times during the often difficult process of finding the right home, I was amazed at your ability to listen to our feedback and focus on our needs as your clients instead of just trying to make a quick sale. This long-term philosophy to building a strong and satisfied client base will ensure your success as a realtor for many years to come.
We would like to thank you again for your unrelenting service to us, as you were always available to discuss the issues that were of concern at the time. This is something that cannot be said of most realtors these days. Therefore, it is without reservation that we would highly recommend your services to anyone attempting to buy or sell a property and we very much look forward to working with you again to take care of our future real estate needs."

You were available to me day and night until I found what I wanted and we found my condo in less than two weeks. I will certainly recommend you to as many people as come my way."
