Finally, Canadian content for Real Estate on the West Coast!

Adam and Matt Scalena have tapped into a major need on the podcast-front for Canadians. A relevant show that is current with regular episodes featuring Canadian-relevant-West Coast content. The brothers bring a combination of good humour and thoughtful advice featuring professionals who are in the field and tackle the house-buying questions head-on. Thanks for providing a Canadian chapter to the finance/real estate section of podcasts. Looking forward to future episodes.

Smart!

Really enjoy this podcast. West Side girl born and bred but moved to Italy 30 years ago so listening to this while I’m making muffins in my Canadian style café here in Verona. Both have nice voices (that may seem trivial but in this medium, a voice is A LOT!) and seem very informed about the many facets in the field.

On Point!

★★★★★
Entertaining and informative!

These guys really know their stuff. Really down to earth and not spouting the typical Realtor BS. Providing much needed information and analyses on our highly controversial market. Very much recommended for Realtors and public alike! Great job guys!

★★★★★
Great podcast!

Humorous, insightful, and informative – a great listen – very interesting and educational. These guys are the best!

★★★★★
Funny and informative!

I want to start off by saying that Adam and Matt make real estate funny and interesting. Rather than just saying it’s a good time to buy, call me, they provide some real down to earth facts that commoners can understand. The insight on foreign buyers was one I’ve never really considered. I’ll be sharing this with others who are in the market.

Local knowledge is deep and strategies work!

As newcomers to Canada we were so thrilled with the service and attention that Adam Scalena demonstrated every step of the way as we proceeded from ‘looking’ to ‘buying’. He was generous with his time, diligent in all aspects of his work and, generally, a great guy to be around. We can highly recommend Adam to anyone who is looking to buy or sell property. His local knowledge is deep and his strategies work. We were led through the process of buying a condo in this market with skill and security. Adam generally cared about the big picture for us and he goes that extra mile to assist in making the process both exciting and stress-free. He navigated through the price negotiation phase with confidence and with a plan. His post-purchase assistance and collaboration with our mortgage agent is also to be noted and praised. We finalized the deal in record time. He continues to be interested in us and our family. We came out on top with a condo in our desired neighbourhood at a price that matched our budget. You can’t ask for better than that! Don’t hesitate to call Adam if you are looking to buy or sell.

Truly exceptional!

Matt recently helped us both sell and buy a condo in downtown Vancouver. His level of service and attention to detail were truly exceptional. This guy doesn’t slow down until you’re satisfied and the deal is done. He is truly a high-caliber professional and his knowledge of the local market and negotiating skills were key in ensuring that we received the best offer for our old condo, and a killer deal on our new home. Whether you are buying or selling, we would highly recommend Matt.

Whole-heartedly recommended!

It is without hesitation that I write this reference for Mr. Matt Scalena. My boyfriend and I first came into contact with Matt during the summer of 2014 when we were looking to purchase a one-bedroom condo in Vancouver. Neither of us knew Vancouver very well, since I lived in BC’s interior and my boyfriend lived in Chicago. Therefore, it was very important to find the right realtor for us, not only someone whom we fully trusted, but also one who could find just the right home for us. Due to the geographical distances involved, our initial conversations with Matt were entirely by telephone, where he repeatedly demonstrated his excellent communication skills. He was always completely professional, patient and very pleasant to talk to. An excellent listener, Matt very quickly got a good sense of the type of home and neighbourhood where we would feel comfortable. Before long, he had us looking at several possible homes via his online website. After we selected our favourite condos on-line, it was time to actually visit them in person. Not only was Matt instrumental in setting up six (!) viewings in one day to accommodate my schedule, but he also personally drove us to each of the sites, giving up several hours of his family time on a sunny Saturday. Throughout this entire experience, it was a pleasure having Matt as our constant guide because of his pleasant, cheerful demeanour. Once we decided on the right place for us, Matt stood by us every step of the way, skillfully steering us through the legal processes of ensuring all the details were taken care of in a timely fashion. Never did we feel in the dark, abandoned or pressured by Matt. If we had a question, and we had many, Matt was always quick to find the answers. Any bumps along the way were met head-on by Matt, always remaining positive, professional and genuinely interested. Overall, we are very happy that Matt was our realtor. Our entire home-buying experience has been much more enjoyable because of Matt’s profound understanding of how to treat his clients, and that is with respect and dignity. We whole-heartedly recommend Matt to anybody wishing to buy or sell a home.

An A+ Experience!

My wife and I are US residents from California. We met Adam when we were searching for an investment property in Vancouver (we also plan to purchase a retirement home in this beautiful area in the future). We were very impressed by Adam’s demeanor. He is so different from the real estate brokers we are accustomed to in the US. He is smart and knowledgeable, but never flashy. He is considerate, deliberate, sincere, and very trust worthy. He is also very hard working! We relied on his advice and guidance on the location, size, type, and price range of potential units, and finally purchased a very nice apartment at the Hudson. Our experience with Adam has been an A+! We will definitely work with him again in our future real estate needs in the Vancouver area. Thank you Adam!
