We live in Seattle and were interested in investing in a vacation home in Whistler. We discovered Laura Barkman on the internet. Her website was nice-looking and very up to date. But, what impressed us the most was her quick response and follow-up to our questions. She even initiated communication with us after not hearing from us for a while. That extra touch moved us to hire her as our agent. We felt very comfortable with Laura right away. She understood what we wanted and help to educate us on the market as well as what it would take to be landlords. Our hunt was quick but fun, and we found a great townhome right in the village. She was also instrumental in guiding us through the closing process as non-Canadian citizens. We have had great luck with rentals and reviews of our place. And it is because Laura helped us see what was important. Laura Barkman is a fabulous realtor and wonderful to work with. We would certainly recommend her to anyone who wishes to buy property in Whistler. Sincerely, John and Nancy Hambacher
Our family retained Laura Barkman to assist us with upgrading our home in Whistler, BC. We were owners of a studio town home in Whistler Village, and were ready to make a purchase for a larger property.
During our search for a home, we found Laura extremely knowledgeable on real estate in Whistler. She had information on all the buildings we were interested in, and we immediately felt a trust relationship grow. She was keenly aware of our needs as a family, and eventually arranged viewing of 4 properties that fit our family’s needs.The very first home we saw, was the one for our family. We are very proud to say that Laura’s negotiating skills are above and beyond what we have seen from any other realtor we have worked with, and she communicated our position very clearly to the Seller’s agent. Laura’s efforts on our behalf were extremely favourable for our family. She was successful in negotiating one of the best deals in property that we have been involved in. We are now proud owners of a beautiful one bedroom and den town home in the Blackcomb Benchlands. We are greatful for Laura’s dedication and hard work during the negotiating period. We would absolutely retain Laura again in future, and would not hesitate to refer her to any of our family and friends.Thank you again for your amazing efforts Laura.Best wishes, The Cicek Family
