Tell Us Your Story

Buying a house can be a challenging and stressful experience.

Having Ken in my corner to walk me through was invaluable. Ken was extremely professional, knowledgeable and always cheerful with good humor. Ken never left any questions unanswered. He always responded promptly to every email, text and phone call. He keeps an eye on things in the market for me. Whenever he knew the home was coming on the market, he had me first in line to view it. He had my best interest at heart and gave me good advice in negotiating the deal. I want to thank you for doing such a tremendous job in not only helping me to find a home but all the extra things he did to make the transition so smooth. Thank you.

I want to highly recommend AWA-JOVI for your next real estate needs, especially if you are considering selling a property.

They took over my listing and sold it at a good price within a short time. My Richmond apartment was listed with a different realtor for 9 months and received only several unacceptable offers. They turned my apartment into a showcase and marketed my apartment expertly in a creative video. I was kept well informed of all showings and buyer feedbacks. To help close the deal, they took charge and coordinated with the buyer, buyer broker and me (overseas seller) to reach a win-win conclusion for all parties. They take time to understand their customers and they get results! So, whether you are selling or buying real estate, I recommend their services without reservation. You will be a satisfied customer like me!

Clients' Experience Bal was nothing short of amazing to work with.

As first time home buyers there was a general sense of anxiety of whether we would be making the right choice or even what that “right” choice was. Bal displayed patience, knowledge and a willingness not to rush us in to a decision. She walked us through townhomes, detached homes and was always available, even during these unprecedented times, never wavering from her initial commitments to us while always providing us with honest and sound advice. We finally found our home and we couldn’t be happier. The level of professionalism, ensuring we were not only ready financially, but mentally and emotionally was important for us. Being from the Vancouver region, we were amazed at her range of knowledge of the Fraser Valley. She made one of the most difficult life decisions much easier to manage and she is such a bright personality, we couldn’t have asked for anyone better during this journey. We would highly recommend her and again, Thank You

Where do I begin ?

The entire home buying experience was, to be honest, quite overwhelming. But through it all, Paul was a rock, an anchor keeping my emotions level, so I could make the best choice for the future. He never let me get my hopes up or feel down. He kept reminding me that when the right situation comes about, things will somehow work out. And did they ever. I can say that I am 100% satisfied. Looking forward to working with you again in the future, Paul! Alan Carandang

David Chen & Cherry Tan

We bought our first home in Canada back in 2015.

Paul assisted us in every step of the way and we are very satisfied with his work. As an international buyer we know that lots of things might not go well if we work with an agent that isn't experienced in dealing with international buyers and investors. The process can be more tedious and complicated for an international buyer, but working with Paul makes it seem like it's just the opposite. We really recommend anyone who is interested in buying a home to work with Paul as he is highly experienced, qualified to do the work, trustworthy, friendly and reliable. Excellent assistance in every aspect of the buying process. And for international buyers, look no further than to work with Paul. Cepi Rusli / Liendres Soelistijawati

Paul is professional, knowledgeable, caring, efficient and most important - trustworthy.

He helped us to buy and sale of our home easy and hassle free. And it all happened within ONE Month!!! In our first meeting with Paul, he explained to us the whole process of the purchasing of a property and what different kinds of fees we are expecting to pay at completion. After that, he interviewed us to understand our situation, needs, and goal for this purchase. Paul helped us to identify the important needs and perhaps what might need to be sacrificed in order to meet our budget demand. During showings, you can tell that Paul was well prepared at the properties as he knows what information was missing on the MLS listing and get the answers for us. Throughout the entire process the communication has been excellent. On the offer closing day, Paul always kept in touch with the listing agent and kept us update(d). He kept bargaining for us and ended up with a lower price than expected! Once we got our offer accepted, we started selling our condo. Paul visited our condo and gave us valuable advice on how to make the condo more appealing for showing. On the photograph day, he helped us to do staging and even clean the balcony for us! Paul gave us professional advice for determining the optimum listing and sale price and for closing the deal effectively. All the preparations that led up to the open house and the eventual sale of our condo were organized and well executed. We got top dollars from the sale of our condo. We were very impressed by Paul's dedication, knowledge and professionalism. We would give our highest recommendation to anyone and will choose him above all others in the future.

Joanna & Michael

Sophia helped my family buy a condo in Burnaby a few weeks ago.

She was able to negotiate an excellent deal for us and was very familiar with all the details of the transaction that ultimately led to the seller coming down to our last offer. Sophia also made sure everything was to our advantage in the transaction. The process to buy was quite detailed and complicated and Sophia explained all the important details that we needed to know. I have a condo I'm selling next month and I have already hired Sophia to be our agent. I highly recommend Sophia to buy or sell a property.

Jamie Jung

When we first met Carolina, her personality and knowledge really give us the secure feeling.

As first-time homebuyers in Canada, Carolina was very helpful in explaining all the things and documents we should be awarer of. She is really concentrating on what we really need rather than just wanna make a quick sale. She makes everything really easy for us with her expertise.

Anna Wang and Steve Chen

Mike was an absolute pleasure to work with.

He is very responsive and knowledgeable about the Metro Vancouver real estate market. We engaged Mike to sell our investment property at a new development project. Despite 50+ new listings hitting the market upon completion of this project, Mike was able to sell our listing within 20 days and for top dollar! I would highly recommend Mike and we will continue to use him for future transactions.

Akaash Bali

I can't say enough about the professional service that Carolina provided.

Whether you're an experienced property owner or a first time home buyer, the importance of having a reliable realtor on your side can make your transaction much easier and trustable. With a tight timeline and all of the additional complications, Carolina was right there to help us step by step. Just like her said, " Dedicated to service and expertise" Highly Recommended.

When we decided to sell our home of 24 years, the decision was not made lightly.

How do you deal with the emotions of letting go of the place that you have raised your two children in? The laughter and cries that echoed through each room, the smell of homemade dinner coming from the kitchen, the sounds of the television from the living room. These memories, will forever be cherished but we get a chance at a fresh start. A chance to watch our grandchildren learn to crawl, walk and run in a space just for them. A chance to create new memories just as we did in our home 24 years ago. A chance that we have thanks to Paul. Paul did everything right. He was the mind, when our hearts couldn't do it. He was able to put us in a situation that made the transition as easy as possible. We couldn't have asked for more. We have only gratitude in our hearts. Thanks Paul! Antonio & Eugenia C.

The AWA Real Estate Group at Jovi Realty, Cindy Tse and Ken Law, did an exceptional job in the sale of our home.

They made everything so much easier and painless from our first meeting to the signing date. Their knowledge of property values, home staging, video advertising, and the real estate market is outstanding. I would highly recommend Cindy and Ken to anyone who needs truly qualified agents. I am extremely grateful to them for helping us sell our home in such a short time.

Fenchie

First of all, please accept my great appreciation for the great work you have done in facilitating me and my family in this whole property searching and purchasing experience.

As a first time home owner, I was very anxious and overwhelmed at the beginning of the purchasing process and did not have much knowledge of what to do or how. However, I was glad that I have chosen Paul to be my realtor. Paul was very knowledgeable, professional, and patience. All my questions have been answered and explained thoroughly with great details in a timely manner. Paul took great efforts to work around my schedule. I really appreciate his work ethics, as he is very frank with all his advice and suggestions. With the great help from Paul, this nerve racking experience has turned out to be a positive and exciting journey. I would definitely recommend Paul to anyone who is looking for a property. Best regards, Connie Jia

Most people tries to either sell me a product or services by marketing benefits, their experiences and knowledge.

What separate Joanna from the rest is her focus on delivering trust, hard work and peace of mind. I always seek business partner who can provide me with solutions that give me the least amount of stress. With the recent Richmond property transaction completed with Miss Wu, she did everything I asked of her. If my review fits your needs, then Joanna is your best option. Tell her my review sent you and all the best.

To Paul Kurniawan, I am writing to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude for the eight months of helping me for getting my first Unit.

The first impression I had on Paul was friendly and professional. After our first meeting I was able to determine that he was the right realtor for me, Paul answered all my questions honestly. As a first time buyer/investor I have no idea how and where to begin. Presell or buying an existing property. Paul was able to give me an honest answer after listing all the pros- and cons and of each option. I made the decision of getting an existing property. My journey to get my first property begins. After viewing few properties in Richmond I found it was unaffordable for me. I told Paul about this matter, he was able to reset our plan really fast. We started to look for properties in Surrey. After viewing few properties in Surrey we started to put offers on few of them, however without any success. Throughout this process Paul had help(ed) me a lot, whenever I have any questions he took his time to answer me from a 15 minutes to an hour phone call to made sure I understand everything. There was one instance that stood out the most. There was one Unit I really like but there were a lot of legal issues going on with the Strata. After listening to Paul's opinions I decided not getting it. I would say that not a lot of realtors will let their client know all the consequences of getting this Unit, Paul told me the truth and didn't hide anything from me. This showed that Paul really cares about his clients! I am so grateful that I have Paul as my realtor; he never showed any impatience with all my questions and countless house tours. I am so impressed that he always gave me honest answers to all my questions. I am really thankful for Paul's help. I would definitely recommend Paul to my friends and family if they need a realtor. Also I will definitely use Paul as my realtor again in the future for real estate needs. Thank you Paul! Sincerely, Anna Zeng

I am writing to express my sincere Appreciation and Thank you for the sincere and diligent work of Paul Kurniawan.

I first met Paul about 2 months ago. I found him friendly and unassuming. By questions and answers, Paul was able to determine my needs. He set a plan moving forward due to the fact that I was about to make a trip overseas for 2 months. So this was going to be a challenge. In my mind, I was able to determine that Paul, in this first meeting, would be the realtor I need considering the circumstances I was in. I had a deadline for finding a townhouse to move into. And because I had a deadline, Paul set a plan of action which he delivered while I was overseas. This to me was important because he fulfilled his commitment to me which was set out in the plan. When I got back to Vancouver, Paul and I met. He set out the schedule of townhomes to visit. The schedule was emailed a week in advanced. The schedule was detailed with timeline that included arriving several minutes early so that we could do a walkabout in the neighbourhood. During the walkabout, Paul gave me good insights on the neighbourhood, vicinity information, as well as the development history of the townhomes. So for every site visit, it was like this. It was the same as we entered each townhouse. Paul pointed out a lot of things to look out for while touring the each home. He answered and took his time answering each and every questions I had, making sure that I understood it. After about a 2 weeks of site visits, I now had to go back overseas. It was when I got to my destination that I decided on which townhouse I was interested in. So it was via phone call that my wife and I had to discuss with Paul. It was many calls with many questions and clarifications. On 2 occasions, the call was at leas an hour long. After each call, my wife and I would comment that Paul really took his time, going over carefully each item on every document we discussed. My wife and I were really impressed on how Paul was meticulous on each explanation and never showed any impatience in the very many questions my wife and I had. It was very sincere. My wife and I felt secure and comfortable. My wife and I are extremely happy with the sincerity of Paul. No doubt that my family and I will be using Paul for all our real estate needs in the future.

Guys; these guys are absolutely amazing to work with!

I would rate them 10 of 10; here goes my experience- Selling my condo - I had 2 months' time to sell my condo and buy a townhome in Surrey BC. Starting from initial meeting we had, researching market stats, arranging video & photo tour (they went with best photographers in town, we dint go with iPhone clicks for MLS, lol), printing marketing brochures, listing my unit, finally comes the open house day and guess what, these guys got me the top $ per sq ft for my unit exactly what we were aiming for and most amazing we had an accepted offer in less than 4 days, isn’t that awesome...I am a full time working mgmt professional and have a limited time after long workdays including travel; all I had to was trust and give keys to Nidish & Anish and they made it all happen! Pre Approval - Nidish referred me to his mortgage broker @SAMIR HIRE, who did his absolute best to get approval for what I need at the best market interest rate, the best part is Nidish/Anish worked directly with Samir as a team in my best interest to get exactly what I had wanted! Buying Townhome - I remember they called all the listings I had shortlisted and updated me on the status of each one; these guys had truly worked so hard in this showing me almost 22+ homes in 2 weeks; would you believe Nidish or Anish would be waiting in front of my plc almost every day by the time I came back from office; they would take me around showing the home booking private viewings. Finally they found me the best townhouse in Cloverdale, HARVEST @ Bose; and negotiated the place for less than asking price in hot townhome market, and in fact, closed the deal before this unit got into open house market and saved me good $. They also recommended a notary lawyer to take care of my selling and buying paperwork; I have to say this lawyer #w.masri notary (Hassan El Masri) was so proactive & amazing; he had called me in 2 weeks before to discuss all information and made the whole process so smooth, no last-minute surprises! People; sorry for the long post! But this is to show how much these guys genuinely care for their clients, I have come across realtors who do not have even have time to go for viewings with their clients, or on flip side, they will call us for private showings and not be present in last minute and have the homeowner do hard job of selling house, still cashing out big $$ commission Chq. I have been around in construction/ trade industry for over 8 years and have my contacts in place with other realtors/ brokers, but so happy I made a decision to go with Nidish/ Anish from JOVI Realty, had to mention JOVI, amazing brokerage who genuinely care for their agents and support them at any time of day with queries which helped us big time in making right decisions! What I see working with these guys is “VALUE” with their energy, genuine interest and actions, negotiating skills, and basically 2 guys (NIDISH & ANISH) working for you as a team, it’s all about who could deliver the best value for $ commissions paid! “Happy Selling or Buying HOME’s” with these Abraham brothers! Cheers:-)

Joanna Wu made the entire process of purchasing my apartment painless.

She was versatile to adapt to my circumstances (timezones, hectic work schedules, etc) and was profoundly efficient in narrowing down what I was looking for. She laid out the ground work, and planned out the strategy in a professional manner before I even touched down. I would recommend Joanna Wu to any of my friends, knowing that they would be well taken care of.

We are writing this testimonial to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to Paul Kurniawan, Lisa Shen and their team who have successfully sold our townhome in Burnaby and helped us purchase a single detached home in Surrey!

We've first met Paul during a house blessing of our friend's house in Fraser Heights, Surrey. Our friend Sheila and Nielsen who were his satisfied clients introduced Paul to us. We were impressed on the wealth of information about the housing market that Paul shared generously in our table. We decided to schedule a meeting in out town house and he gave us important tips from lighting to de-cluttering, deep cleaning and make our townhouse more appealing for photo shoot and home showing. He guided us on the right pricing to entice more potential buyers during the open house. There was always an open channel of communication between us for the scheduling countless private home showing following COVID-19 safety protocols. Paul and his team was always present during all private showing and keep potential buyers informed and updated. We never felt pushed to decide, they just provided us the right information for us to come up an informed-decision. When I had to postpone some home viewing due to intervening medical procedure, he supported our decision. Our townhouse was finally sold at our asking price during a buyers real estate market. The whole team also greatly supported us during our numerous house hunting and submission of offers in a crazy seller's real estate market. We have been outbid for 8 times, but getting closer and closer to buying our single detached home as we learn tremendously along the way. Reah and I are so impressed by Paul and Lisa's dedication, knowledge, efficiency and professionalism. We will definitely recommend their professional service to our friends and we will do repeat business with him in the future.
