Jodi's husband Scott was doing high-end home renovations for 5 years before joining the team back in 2005, often lending a hand preparing their clients homes by assisting with some painting and handyman work for the team until a few years ago.
Scott acquired his real estate license in 2017 and shares Jodi's dedication to our clients.
Scott is in charge of the teams IT department and researching all of the information that is needed for each listing to ensure we market each home to it's fullest potential. Scott will provide calculations for our development projects, provide a home owner with the size of a shop that the lot will accommodate and he prepares our 8 page custom brochures by visiting each home to gather pertinant details.
Scott's deep sense of loyalty and long-term outlook are his greatest assets.
Jolynn has worked with the team for over 10 years, and she is the person working hard behind the scenes to facilitate the seemingly stress-free process of buying or selling with Jodi and the Team.
It takes a lot of work to gather all the information we need, coordinate appointments for the various professionals involved, ensure that everything goes well on moving day, and manage all of our files and more.
Jo works at our Aldergrove storefront Monday to Thursday and works from home on Friday's.
I often see updates from Dropbox flash across the top corner of my screen at midnight or as early as 5:30 a.m. during the week. Many times I've sent her a text saying "Go to bed Jo! ;)"

There are a lot of great people who we work with on a regular basis, but these people are involved in the majority of our transactions one way or another.

Selling your home for top dollar takes top notch preparation and professional marketing.
When it comes to the preparation, we realize that it's a stressful time in your life, and that there are probably some nagging details about your home that will negatively affect it's sale price. The average seller could potentially net thousands of tax-free dollars with the right help at a fair price.
We can refer you to a wide range of contractors whom we trust with our own reputation, but one of the hallmarks of Jodi & the VIP Team's service is that we also provide all of our listing clients with:
8 page custom brochure
Personally shop for items to showcase your home
Social media campaign
Large full colour mail-outs
Full page colour ads
Buyers today want information.
To ensure the buyers looking at your home are informed, our team will work diligently to collect information about things like underground sprinklers, in-floor radiant heating, the presence of a heat pump or A/C, extra insulation in the attic, roof warranties, who are the neighbours, how many years have you lived at the home, what are the monthly electric bills & gas bills and many more categories.
We also include information such as the distance to local schools and amenities, the location of the water shut-off, the type of plumbing & wiring and local bus routes. Buying a home is scary and overwhelming and the more information you can provide, the more confident the buyer will feel.
Providing supporting documents such as the last time you serviced your furnace and fireplace with receipts will provide further clairifcation to the buyer that the home has been maintained. The easier you can make it for a buyer to buy your home, the better.
Buying before Selling will cost you thousands. We can discuss the downside of buying before selling and we can provide options to ease your concerns about timing to ensure the process is.as smooth as possible. We will. not leave you homeless. After discussing the options, many home sellers still decide to buy first but now they are informed. They may decide that the additional $25,000.00 it will cost is worth it if they can find their forever home and can avoid a second move in the future.
To discuss the process of selling in more detail, just give Jodi a call to book a consultation at 604-833-5634.
Whether you're a first time home buyer or an experienced investor, our team has a lot to offer. We have decades worth of experience evaluating homes and lots, writing strong offers in competitive markets, negotiating hard in soft markets, forming strong contracts to ensure that your interests are protected, familiarity with local amenities in the different municipalities, and after helping people buy & sell for 25 years we know what mistakes to avoid when selecting a long-term home.
We also keep up to date on the changes to the financing regulations, mortgages, and government incentives to help our buyers take advantage of everything that's available in the current market.
Jodi and Wendy will point out pitfalls when viewing homes and we will show you the best homes available in any given market. Once you have found the one, we will knock on the neighbours doors to ask for their opinion on the area, if a train is close by we will call CNN to obtain further information as to how many times does the train go by and do they blow the whistle and at what hours.
Many times we have to say NO when our buyers find a home they think if perfect because it does not meet their long term goals. We are not focussed on making the sale today, we are focussed on building relationships that last a lifetime and sometimes that requires us to say NO, The buyer may still decide to buy the home but now they are moving forward will all the information and are aware of the pitfalls.
Sometimes the best deals are the ones with the bad paint colours or the old flooring. We can quickly provide quotes for these types of renovations and negotiate that you can obtain quotes prior to possession to ensure you can have your renovations done as soon as you get the keys. We are here to ensure you don't get caught up in the process and you hit your targets and win financially.
