BIG THANK U to Meryl
Wanted to say a BIG THANK U to Meryl for all her help on a tough file for a mutual client of ours. Due to some unfortunate family situations our client was in an unusual predicament for her purchase. There were multiple factors, ie. removing name from previous home, legal agreements etc… Meryl, with her background in legal work was able to calmly help the client navigate through all the obstacles and our client is now the proud owner of her new home!!! Thank you so much for bringing that unique skill set to help our client achieve her dream!
A Helping Hand
…Meryl was filling in for my real estate agent on my move out date and was such a huge help. I had issues with the movers and she helped me with some final cleaning, taking out garbage and even drove me to my hotel at midnight when we were done. It was a difficult day for me and her helping me out made it a whole lot easier.
I highly recommend…
I highly recommend working with Meryl. She’s easy to work with and works hard. Professional, experienced, and trustworthy.
Meryl is incredibly driven, resourceful and caring.
I have had the opportunity to work with Meryl Hamdillah on several occasions. Her detailed and organized approach to each project ensured that things ran smoothly, on time and without concern. I would recommend Meryl to anyone wanting to list and sell their home, or purchase a new one. Meryl is incredibly driven, resourceful and caring, she will do what it takes to meet the specific needs for each of her clients.
Great service with heart
I am very thankful to have Meryl helping me to find my new home. Meryl is a lovely lady and full of heart. She has great attitude, client focused, takes extra steps throughout the whole process. I can totally trust her and rely on her. She does deserve all the credits and respect. Thank you Meryl!
She always had my interests at the forefront
I highly recommend Meryl as an agent in this tough market. I met Meryl in my church preschool parent group and asked if she would help me prepare and sell my townhouse. She taught me a lot about my building, strata, depreciation reports, and council minutes. Meryl advised me very well from the start about renovating as part of pricing strategy. She always had my interests at the forefront and treated me like she was giving advice to family. I was so impressed with how much preparation she did in order to sell my place when other places were not selling. Sincere Thanks!
Thanks for helping me.
When I sell my house in South Vancouver, I met with a lot of realtors who told me to sell to builders below assessment and let them tear down quickly. But Meryl was different and I remember what Meryl said….you worked all your life for your home and you deserve to get a better price for this home. I list with Meryl and she got me offers even before it was listed. She told me houses on my block were starting to change and she helped me call the city to check if a laneway house could be built. After a week, she found a nice family who wanted to build a laneway house as mortgage helper. I really thank Meryl for her honest help.
I highly recommend speaking to Meryl
I was very lucky to discover Meryl in an article I read about closing costs. I really like how clear it was. I called her to ask questions and decided to list my condo. I usually measure things by numbers but my gut feel about Meryl made me decide to list with her. She had better work ethic than I expected and she helped me prepare for selling my condo and help in so many ways. I didn’t realize how much there was to do. Great experience! I highly recommend speaking to Meryl.
Meryl was Great!
Meryl was was very professional and knowledgible when she acted as our agent for our purchase of a Coquitlam condo. We were impressed by her thoroughness- she is especially knowledgible about the legal aspects of the paper work. We would highly recommend her as a person easy to work with as your agent.
We couldn’t be happier…
We couldn’t be happier with our decision to choose Meryl as our realtor for both our sell and purchase of our new condo in downtown Vancouver. We’ve dealt with many realtors with our investment houses and I have to be honest that we signed the listing documents for our primary home with some reservations. But right from our first encounter, Meryl had a comfortable and honest approach making us to feel like we could speak honestly without hesitation. Meryl was very thorough with her communication, especially when there were choices or changes. She had solutions and advice for every decision along the way. But we didn’t feel pressured one way or the other. We liked the fact that she was upfront that when we made decisions that was different from hers, she helped us when we revisited the decision without any feeling of fault. We were amazed at all the communication whether they were telephone, text messages, or quick web links to check things out. There was always a purpose to her reaching out to us. Actually with such a friendly voice we didn’t mind if she just wanted to chat 🙂 She was confident about her advice and wanted to be able to address all our questions. Very knowledgeable, and such an investigator. She seemed dedicated to us even though I know she was juggling several clients as well as an active mom to boot. We would whole-heartedly and confidently recommend Meryl to anyone!
Meryl is amazing. She truly went above and beyond as a realtor.
Meryl is amazing. She truly went above and beyond as a realtor. She helped us with everything we needed to get our apartment ready for sale. As a result we got well above asking price! Then we helped find a Townhouse that we love. She is very professional, honest, detailed and just lovely to work with. We most certainly could not have done this without her, and I recommend her to all my friends and family.
Meryl was extremely knowledgeable
Got a chance to work with Meryl when she was at a law office. We had a mutual client completing on a purchase and she was extremely meticulous on helping our client thru the closing process. There was a couple out of the ordinary questions and Meryl was extremely knowledgeable and able to answer them!
She has brought that same skill and knowledge to being a realtor. We worked together recently for another mutual client and it was amazing to work with her because it helps me with my job in attaining the clients financing. Together we were able to help our client purchase their first home!
Above and Beyond
I recently listed with Meryl and it was an absolute pleasure.
She is very knowledgeable, with a thorough understanding of current trends and felt nothing but trust when dealing with her.
She is very diligent, ambitious and far exceeded my expectations.
Going above and beyond to make sure my property was presentable, keeping me informed on current market data so that we can make the right decisions and selling it within a short period of time.
She is very professional, educated and I would 100% work with her again.
I strongly recommend her as I believe she has her client’s best interest.
Thank you Meryl for all your hard work. I have been WoW’d
What an amazing realtor!…
What an amazing realtor! She went out of her way to look after our interests, and to assist us through the entire journey from first orientation to closing on a property purchase as well as the aftercare and follow-up. She is open, honest, easy to deal with, and was an excellent mediator between us buyers and the sellers/listing agents. 5 stars!
It is my first house purchase but I wasn’t going to live there.
I found an investment home and was ready to make an offer. I needed someone quick but my friend who is a realtor was not available so I found Meryl after calling a few realtors. She spent time on the phone getting to know me and then we arranged a time to meet in the evening. She came prepared with a laptop, and even a printer! ha ha. I could tell she spent all day preparing info to show me. At the cafe, she got to know my situation a little better. It is my first house purchase but I wasn’t going to live there. I live with my parents. I needed an investment home as a stepping stone to buying my own home. After preparing an offer, she reviewed the investment home financials with me and went throughly through the closing costs. She helped call my mortgage banker and after spending several hours with Meryl, it was getting late. I was scared to tell her but she didn’t even flinch when I realized that I wasn’t ready to make the offer. I didn’t have enough downpayment to get financing. She was so kind and informative. She only asked me to review her for feedback. I will definitely call you once I’m ready Meryl.
*** Excellent Negotiator and Best Realtor ***
It is out of immense pleasure to recommend Meryl Hamdillah as a real estate agent for any individual or family searching for the ideal home for their unique situation. We wanted the best price for our house to move closer to our out of catchment school.
Meryl had an initial meeting with us and took diligent notes regarding our specific needs in a selling our Coquitlam house in the rising market. She is highly talented technologically and made excellent use of the relevant search engines to accurately price our home in our neighbourhood.
Meryl put up the for sale sign and 2 offers were proposed before we put the house on MLS. She was a master with the contract negotiations, and we were able to move out before school began in September.
Throughout the whole process, we found Meryl to be a highly attentive agent, almost as if we were her only customers, although we know that was not the case. She returned all phone calls and emails the same day. We never felt neglected or unimportant. She is also highly personable with an engaging personality.
I’m pleased to recommend Meryl Hamdillah to anyone looking to sell or buy a home. She is hands down the best in the business in our opinion and if we ever need to move again she will be our first choice in real estate agents.
lovely apartment in Coquitlam
Meryl asssisted us in finding my Mother-in-law a lovely apartment in Coquitlam. She handled the paperwork with efficiency and fine attention to detail. The transaction was difficult since the client was overseas but Meryl was able to handle it smoothly. She was readily available anytime that we had questions. Very professional.
