Have you called Brad yet?
"Brad was recommended to me by my brother and a friend who were both very happy with their real estate purchases using Brad as their realtor. When I was ready to jump into the housing market they both asked the same question: 'have you called Brad yet? ' Because they couldn't say enough good things about him, I expected to be disappointed.
Given the housing market for buyers in the Lower Mainland I was prepared for a challenging journey and was not looking forward to the ups and downs of the process. In the end, I found the perfect place for me and I can now be counted among Brad's clients who cannot say enough good things about him. Let's face it, buying a home can be a bumpy ride but with Brad's help, made all the more smooth and enjoyable!"

From the bottom of our hearts
"You had a firm grip on our best interests at all times, including double and triple checking with us at various stages of the contract. At all times we felt he was being truthful to us. Our confidence in Brad meant we had no second thoughts about asking him to be our Realtor in the purchase of our new home as well.
Thank you Brad, from the bottom of our hearts for the months of support that stressed us all beyond any and all measure of what should have been a joyful conclusion of 55 years of family ownership of the farm."
- Linda & Frank Gigliotti, Port Coquitlam
"Throughout the entire buying/selling process we valued your expertise. You have all the right tools to perform in your career very well. Your astute understanding of numbers, your people skills, and ability to remain attuned to the BIG picture. Thank you!"
- Jen & Clint, Langley
The new place is amazing. We are all settled in and very happy.
Considering the very short time we worked together we thought you did a fabulous job selling our townhouse. You sold it within a few days of being on the market and above asking price. You were always very accommodating with our schedule and showed up on time. You answered our calls right away and solved any issues or concerns we had.
We would recommend you to any of our friends and family in the area!
- Jennifer & Jeremy Yochim, Maple Ridge
"Just so you know, we've all been very pleased with your efforts. We were impressed with your tenacious determination with the negotiations but also your calm nature and ability to keep everyone in the picture as the stressful process continued to a very satisfactory completion.
- Lynn Edey, Port Moody
It's Abundantly Clear
Recently, I had the distinct pleasure of choosing Brad Parrotta and his team to assist me in the sale of my late-mother's house and property in Abbotsford. Not only was Brad personable, kind, friendly and thoughtful; but he was also dedicated, hard-working and amazingly organized. Brad and his team put every effort into securing a fair and timely sale: attractive brochures, numerous open houses, stunning online photography and four virtual tours of the property. It's abundantly clear to me why Brad and his team have won numerous awards. In my opinion, anyone interested in a top-notch, first-class, highly-professional and downright wonderful family-guy as their realtor need look no further than Brad Parrotta and his skilled team.
- Ron Macfarlane, Mission
"He was always prompt to return my calls, and listened to me and support me through this stressful time. I had total trust in him and he made me feel that he was doing everything in my best interest. His knowledge was above and beyond, he was very reliable and always showed up on time! It was my friend who recommended him to me, and I'll be doing the same to my friends. Thanks again Brad!"
- Rose Anderson, Coquitlam

Never felt pushed or influenced
"I thought the service was great and I'll recommend you anytime I get the chance. I know that "the sale" is your job, but I never felt pushed or influenced, and for me that means a lot. Thanks for a great buying experience. I wish you great success!"
- Marlene Davy, Port Moody
Willing to do what it takes!
"Brad is very friendly, patient, helpful and knowledgeable. Willing to do what it takes to get our house sold. Pleasure to work with. In addition, he was flexible with closing the deal. He's always on time and when he's not, he would let us know. Brad actually helped us get our current place and since he did a great job, we decided to sell our other place with Brad as well."
- Patrick, Maria, Pacita & Lamberto Tan, Surrey
We put our trust in you
"Brad, you asked us to trust you to sell our house....we did and you sold it in record time!! You were professional, competent, excellent at communication and we truly enjoyed your sense of humour. We would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone who wants a job well done. Thank you Brad!"
Thanks very much,
- Sandy & Randy James, Coquitlam
Emotional roller coaster
"My wife and I would like to personally thank you Brad for making the purchase of our first home an experience of a lifetime. It was an emotional roller coaster for the both of us - making a bid on a big purchase, not knowing if we would get it, checking out the strata documents that Brad worked hard to send us, getting hints on how to prepare for our big move, etc.
He stepped us through the process in a friendly and professional manner. Thanks again Brad."
- Thomas & Mirasol Khu, Burnaby
Our kudos to you Brad!
"When we were looking for a condo and feeling frustrated because we couldn't find something, we liked what you said, "Just wait. One time you will walk into one and say, "this is it!" and we did. Thank you for your patience, professionalism and your continuing dialogue with us.
Then when it was time to sell our house you provided us with all the information we needed to make our decisions. The service you provided before, during, and after the sale took all the pressure off of us. When we hear of someone looking for an agent, we will say, "Call Brad. You won't be sorry."
- Jacquie & Ralph Johnston, Coquitlam
Not your typical realtor
"Putting aside the fact that we've known each other for such a long time, we were extremely happy working with Brad. The search for a new home has been a long journey, and Brad stuck it out with us for almost 3 years.
We are convinced we maximized the equity of our townhome sale in Burnaby, and Brad was a big part of that. The open houses created a huge amount of traffic and we ended up selling over asking and our expectations.
With the purchase of the new home, we closed on the property below asking even though the market was in an upswing, and we feel that price was more than fair. Ultimately we ended up meeting with a great builder and we are ecstatic with our new home.
We would highly recommend Brad to friends, family and anyone else who is looking for a professional Realtor that knows the market. Brad is not your typical high pressure Realtor, he was patient throughout the process and we genuinely felt he had our best interests in mind when we were selling and buying the new property."
- Paola & Eric Sherritt, Maple Ridge
"Brad, thank you for the professional way in which you handled the sale of our condo. We were pleased with the results achieved with the sale of the property. Your communication was excellent throughout the listing and we would highly recommend you for your excellent service."
- Barb Castellani, Burnaby
Patience, good humour & complete professionalism
"Brad Parrotta represented us in the sale of our Coquitlam condo home and the purchase of another in a highly sought-after complex in the same city. We were referred to him by friends whom he had helped in other transactions and were pleased and impressed with his work.
In our experience, Brad demonstrated a thorough knowledge and understanding of the real estate market in the Lower Mainland, and particularly in the Tri-Cities, Pitt Meadows and Maple Ridge areas. He provided us with reliable information and sound advice on such issues as evaluation and pricing of our existing property and of the available options for purchase. With his guidance, we realized full price on our sale and a reasonable and satisfactory price on our purchase.
Brad handled negotiations at both ends with patience, good humour and complete professionalism. Although we have considerable experience with real estate transactions in different parts of Canada, making deals in the half-million dollar range are still stressful. Throughout the process, Brad’s low-key, personable manner, coupled with his obvious expertise and competence, were a reassuring and calming influence.
We have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone entering the market."
- Joyce & Tom Williams, Coquitlam
Thank god for Brad!
"Buying a home is a pain and if you don’t have a trusted realtor you can work closely with, then be prepared for a rude awakening. Thank god for Brad! Not only did he guide us through the process but he also gave us his honest, non-biased opinion when it came to the homes we were looking at. He never seemed rush, took his time with us and was a true realty advisor to my wife and I.
Not all realtors are created equal…Brad and Dawn have been a pleasure to work with and unless you are using their services, you probably haven’t experienced the true value of a realtor."
- Eila & Dorsa, Burnaby
There to ease my mind
"Brad Parotta was a key player in helping me find my home. He managed to negotiate a price that was under asking in a time where every bid was going over. He stayed up late the night prior to hash out the deal and get me a number that I was comfortable with. His professional demeanor and excellent counsel when accompanying me made me feel like I had chosen the right person for the job. Everytime I would feel panicked and call Brad, he was there to answer my questions and to ease my mind. Thank you for all your help Brad."
- Andrew Legros, Pitt Meadows
"Brad is our trusted realtor. He helped me and my wife buy our first home and then a few years later with our sale and next home purchase. Brad is attentive and takes the time to understand our wants/needs while also providing guidance on how to get things done efficiently. He makes himself available when needed and always strives to find a compromise. Whether buying or selling we always feel like our best interests are being protected.
We happily refer Brad to any friends and family who need assistance buying or selling real estate in the Lower Mainland."
- The Chows, Surrey
Couldn't be happier!
"Brad helped my wife and I buy our first place together and I couldn’t be happier with the experience we went through together. He made the entire process very easy from start to finish. He was accessible and very knowledgeable and was quick to answer the hundreds of questions we had as first time home buyers. I will not hesitate to have Brad represent me or any of my friends and family for any future real estate transactions, and I would highly recommend him if you’re looking for a great realtor!"
- Michael Wiwchar, Port Coquitlam
Committed, thorough & thoughtful
"We highly recommend Brad to anyone wanting to work with a committed, thorough and thoughtful agent. With his highly qualified assistance we sold our condo in New Westminster in 2015 after listing twice. He never gave up and always kept us informed every step of the way! We would definitely work with him again if we were selling or buying."
- Jeanette & Ian Robertson, Kamloops
"Brad was there for us, jumping in to assist us with a home purchase when one of his colleagues was unavailable to take us through the process of putting in an offer and finalizing our purchase. He was most helpful assuring that we were able to put forward a successful offer in a multiple bid situation, offering suggestions that gave us the necessary advantage. We again turned to Brad to sell our previous home as quickly and painlessly as possible, obtaining an optimum price. Brad was even willing to come by our new home a year and half later, once renovations were completed, giving us an informal appraisal of updated value. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Brad for any real estate transactions."
- Nancy & Gordon Adams, Coquitlam
Knowledgeable, friendly and courteous
"I was a little overwhelmed at the thought of getting into the housing market. Brad patiently assured me that we would find a condo that suited my requirements in terms of location and budget. I found him to be knowledgeable, friendly and courteous.I have been in my condo almost Five years now. And I absolutely love it. I was so happy with Brad that I referred him to my sister."
- Neil Gilligan, Coquitlam
Went above and beyond for our family
"Brad was amazing at helping us buy our first and second home as well as selling our first home. He always went above and beyond for our family and was available at all times whenever we had questions. We will be definitely using him as our realtor again when we decide to move. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to purchase or sell their home :)"
- Candice & Chris Boechler, Maple Ridge

- Clifford & Anita Patterson, Port Coquitlam
Understood our priorities
"We chose Brad as our agent because he understood our priorities and gave us the best advice on how to get our house ready for the market. He guided us through the process smoothly and efficiently. Brad's knowledge of market trends and of our community proved invaluable as our home sold quickly and at a much higher price than expected. Thanks, Brad!"
- Susan & Steve Borthwick, North Vancouver
Helped us with all our concerns and questions
"It was a pleasure to have Brad help me and my wife find our very first home. He helped us with all our concerns and questions along the way, and was always quick to respond to my enquiries. Brad worked with us for over a year, during the most crazy time in real estate in the lower mainland. We finally were able to purchase a home in Aug 2015, after viewing and placing offers on multiple homes. At that time homes were selling on multiple offers, and tens of thousands of dollars above assessment value. Brad was able to get us to view our current home before it was on the MLS listings. We were able to buy our home for asking price, without having to compete with other offers. Almost 3 years have passed since we bought our home, we are very happy and expect to live in our home for many years to come."
- John & Karen Haramincic, Coquitlam
