I have had the pleasure of using Gord Allan’s expertise as a Realtor in a total of five real estate transactions over the last 15 years and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to sell, or purchase real estate in the Tri-Cities and Maple Ridge area.
He has helped me to purchase two condos and a townhouse and has assisted in the sale of one each of those entities. He also put me in touch with a trustworthy realtor on Vancouver Island when the need arose to sell my home there.
Gord, in all instances, has exceeded all expectations I may have had when retaining his services.
In my most recent purchase, which took place at the end of May 2015, Gord put me in touch with contractors, arranged for quotes to facilitate the upgrades that were needed prior to my move, and even met said contractors at my new unit, when I was unavailable to do so.
I had accepted a new position that required me to relocate from Vancouver Island to the Lower Mainland and, had it not been for Gord going the extra mile at all times to ensure a smooth transition, the experience would have been very stressful indeed. Due to the time and effort he put into the process, the move was facilitated in the best way possible and he miraculously, or so it seemed at the time, removed the obstacles that presented themselves along the way.
Thank you Gord for a job well done! You are, and will continue to be, my realtor of choice!
Linda Yanagisawa, Port Moody, BC
As a realtor, Gord is more like having a very knowledgeable friend. He manages to balance being proactive and helpful with incredible patience and no pressure. He went above and beyond to make sure I saw every place I might like (even those I thought I wouldn't and actually did) and even checked out places I might like on his own if I couldn't make it. If you're his client, your happiness is clearly his main concern.
He was an excellent guide through the first-time home buying process, always available by phone and text and with intimate knowledge of the Newport Village, Port Moody area and all the services you'll need. He has a roster of the best mortgage and insurance brokers, inspectors, lawyers....there does not seem to be much he can't help with, and always obligingly
I would recommend Gord to anyone and everyone looking for a place in Port Moody or the surrounding area.

"SkyHigh results, with SkyHigh customer service skills. As a first-time home-buyer, I was naive and timid about entering into the real estate world. I attended an Open House put on by Gord and was instantly impressed with his in-depth knowledge of the local real estate market and all its related off-shoots. He was reliable, patient with my questions, and I always felt he had my best interest in mind. I was impressed by Gord throughout the entire home-purchasing process and would recommend him to anyone requiring a real estate agent in the Tri-Cities area."

"I have known Gord Alan for almost 11 years and found him to be a hard working individual. He persevered in giving us consistent assistance in finding a great home to live in and made sure we were given a fair deal and sorted out any problems that arose. I would recommend Gord's services any time"
- Yolanda Leggiadro, February 2013
"After some disappointing experiences with realtors we had decided to put off looking for our home. Gord knew that we had a very clear idea of what we were looking for and did not waste our time showing homes that 'almost' fit. Within 1 week he had found us the perfect place with all of the features that we were looking for, he made the entire process very easy and kept us informed along the way. Within 2 weeks the place was ours! Gord is very well informed on the Tri-Cities area, keeps up with market trends and passes that information along to his clients. After 12 yrs we are still very happy with our home, should we decide to move we would want Gord to be our realtor. I would recommed Gord to anyone who is looking for a no BS realtor that is results driven."
- Jacqui Niizuma, February 2013
"I met Gord through mutual friends when we were looking for a house back in 2003. We were renting and had just received a letter from our landlord stating that they needed the house back for their son. We had a one month old baby and 3 months to find a place to stay. As soon as we met Gord it was as if we had known him all our life. Gord told us not to worry that he would find a house for us. When we did find the house he managed to reduce the asking price by 10% which gave us money to do our renovations. He was always by our side ready to help us with any questions or problems we had. I don’t think we would have been able to buy our house without his help. When we decide to change our house we will be asking Gord for help again."
- Franco Leggiadro, February 2013
"I have known Gord since our days being together on the Angolan border with now Namibia in the early 70s. We became friends in Vancouver in 1990 when we started sky-diving together. I've known him as a successful restauranteur till he sold the business to become a real estate agent. I've seen the effort and diligence Gord puts into any sale and the professional approach in research to come up with the best possible solution for his clients.
The fact that Gord has many repeat clients attests to his professionalism."
- Gerry Nel, March 2013
"Gord provides exceptional service to all his clients. He is always up to date on the latest trends, social media, and marketing strategies, and as a result his clients get the maximum exposure and top dollars for their home. I had the pleasure of working in the same office with Gord at RE/MAX All Points. When I first started my career in real estate Gord was always there to offer me support. No matter how busy Gord was he always made the time to help his colleagues. Now that I moved to Abbotsford I send Gord all my referrals. I would recommend Gord to any friends or family members."
- Chana Riley, March 2013
"Gord is very knowledgeable on the local real estate market, which was helpful for pricing and showings for our sale. We had a newborn in the house at the time, and he was respectful to give us as much notice as possible before viewings. Our home sold very quickly with little hassle and we got a decent price for it.
When our search for a new home began, Gord offered helpful comments and tips on what we were considering. Once we decided on an offer, Gord took over with the negotiating and bargaining to get us the best price and value for our money. Was very impressed with his work overall."
- Greg McNally March 2013
"Gord Allan is my go-to guy when it comes to buying and selling property. Our professional relationship goes back 10 years and started with the purchase of my first townhouse. Whenever I have had any questions regarding real estate or rental property concerns, he has always responded promptly or referred me on to equally capable people."
- Renee Croft, March 2013
It was a pleasure working with Gord Allan when selling our condo. He responded promptly to our inquiry to work with him, provided us with detailed information about the current market, quickly advertised our condo beautifully with very professional photographs, displayed professionalism and competence when giving us information to assist us in our decision making, and sold our place within a very short time. We will recommend Gord to our friends and family, and we will certainly work with Gord again if we decide to make another move.
- Dieter and Britt, July 2012
"Gord was an excellent and persistent realtor who would not give up on selling my condo, no matter what the market was like. He worked hard and together we were able to sell my unit in a short time and I was very pleased at his local knowledge, professionalism and his "no quit" attitude."
- Wayne Hubbard, June 2012

I especially appreciate your tireless efforts to find and arrange viewing's of alternates which resulted in our purchase of a very good unit.
Keep up the good work!"
Thank you very much,"

"It’s been a couple of days since we have moved to our new townhouse and we all love it here. I just wanted to thank you on behalf of my wife and myself for all your help, useful tips, and honest opinions during the process of buying our new townhouse. Like 6 years ago when you helped us buy our apartment, once again you helped us buy a place that we truly enjoy and can delightfully call home. As always, it was a pleasure working with you."
"...thank you for assisting us in the purchase of our first home in Canada. It was a pleasure dealing with you, as we felt that you listened to us and understood what it was that we were looking for. We were impressed with your efficiency and friendly manner. It is a pleasure to be able to recommend you to all our friends."
- Samantha Glover
"... thank you for the service you provided... our home had been on the market for some time, and we had no offers pending. You were very professional, providing us with very objective points of view. We are very, very happy with our choice and would be more than pleased to recommend your services to anyone. You were patient, professional, personable, knowledgeable and objective in pointing out things to us that we may have overlooked and were necessary to our lifestyle."
- Gerri Mendez
"Thank you for all your hard work in finding us our dream home. I have used many Real Estate Agents in the past but your expertise, advice, hard work and patience surpasses all. With house prices rising fast and selling fast, we are both thrilled to have bought a lovely house at a great price in the neighbourhood we wanted. We have also made a new friend who will always be welcome to visit, without invitation. Special thanks to your office staff who were always helpful."
- Chris and Darlene Slater
"In my time I have dealt with several Real Estate people, both in Ontario and B.C. I found your professionalism and level of competence to be unmatched. I would recommend your services to my contacts at any time. Thanks again."
- Dave Kushnier
"I just wanted to thank you for your prompt and efficient service, and the compassion you showed me during this nerve wracking time, buying my first home. I have and will continue to refer you to my family, friends and clients. I will be dealing with you on my next purchase."
- Deborah Brown
"We're all doing great. We love our condo. And honestly, every time my wife and I think how great the condo is we say to each other: Gord couldn't have picked a better place for us. Every time one of our friends is looking to buy a home we give them your contact information. Thanks again."
"Well you did it, you finally got rid of us two fussy people (but you never know we may be back in the future). We want to use this opportunity to show you our appreciation for your hard work, patience and professional conduct to land us a place that we are both happy with. Since we met you showed great patience with us as we kept sending you e-mails with 20 new listing at a time. However you took the challenge and we narrowed the list down as you showed us a vast range of different properties. This helped us to really see what we were best suited for, we would not hesitate to use you in the future for any other real estate transactions. Of course if we have any friends or relatives looking for a good realtor you are on the top of the list that we would recommend. And don't worry, none of our friends or relatives are quite as finicky as we are. Thanks for everything,"
