Kelly and Anita have been in the real estate industry for a long time, but they’ve been a hugely successful team since joining forces in 2006. Before real estate, they both worked on the Chilliwack Arts Council and shared a strong passion for engaging with their community. Today, both still enjoy frequent volunteer work for local organisations.

Power of Partnership

“We split everything 50/50. Our only concern is serving our clients, not which of us makes more money or who gets the points.”

Part of Kelly and Anita’s success is owed to their strength as a team. While individually they bring a lot of experience to the table–Kelly having been licensed in 1988 and Anita in 1998–they also believe in equality of partnership.

Their shared philosophy is that the power of a partnership is in having a friend and colleague that you can solve problems and talk things out with. ‘Having fun’ is part of their mission statement.

Home Staging

“We love our clients and this business and have done whatever it took over the years to stay current and fresh, always looking at better ways to achieve our client’s goals.

Realtors constantly tell us how much they enjoy showing our properties because they know that it will be a pleasant experience for their buyers.”

All of their selling experience has been in the Chilliwack market, an area not well-served by home stagers. So in 2010 Kelly and Anita took it upon themselves to become Accredited Real Estate Home Stagers. They provide the service free of charge to their own sellers, and even keep an inventory of furniture and decor pieces clients can use during the term of their listing.

Kelly and Anita are the only agents in Chilliwack who have these credentials! It’s a way they can offer sellers a big advantage in a competitive market.

Embracing Technology

“Our embracing of technology and its power is one reason why SeeVirtual is one of our marketing partners. We haven’t found any other virtual tour solution that comes close.”

Technology is a big part of their success strategy, as it helps to provide a constant stream of communication with clients. Sellers have their own web pages on which they can track the showing feedback and Kelly and Anita’s daily efforts to sell their home. They can also receive a market update report every Saturday.

Here’s what else Kelly and Anita have to say about SeeVirtual:

“We have been using SeeVirtual Marketing & Photography services for a number of years now and it has become an integral part of of our real estate business model. High quality digital photography is the backbone of real estate marketing–from how a listing presents on the MLS, to presentation on our website, to all forms of print marketing (newspaper advertising, brochures, etc.).  The professionally drafted floor plans add accuracy, and are a tool that buyers in particular are over the moon about. Using SeeVirtual has set us apart from many of our competitors and has definitely helped us to ‘win’ many listings.”
