I would like to thank Stan van Woerkens for his outstanding work and commitment during the purchase of my home. Stan was always courteous and dedicated, always keeping me informed of all the activities going on during the bidding on my house, and throughout the necessary paperwork required for the purchase. He always worked for my benefit, suggesting concise and detailed suggestions about the market, and where to purchase for the best investment financially and emotionally. He carefully explained the differences between renovating vice rebuilding and the pitfalls of each, and made countless suggestions on the details regarding the home, and protecting my interests. I find him extremely professional, reliable, patient and exceptionally honest.
His ability to understand the client's need made the whole purchasing experience a pleasurable one. In my personal opinion, a real estate agent like Stan is rare to find. I consider Stan a stellar performer in his field, and would highly recommend his service to anyone.

I have known Stan van Woerkens for several years. He has worked for me in a professional capacity as a real estate agent and I have grown to respect his advice on subsequent matters concerning properties in Vancouver. My property was unusual; an iconic mid century residence with great local architectural value but it needed a unique sales plan to attract the right buyer. Stan stepped beyond the bounds of conventional sales tactics to employ his imagination and enthusiasm. He also helped me to set realistic expectations and advised me on prudent ways to prepare the house for sale.I am delighted to report that my house was sold in a relatively short amount of time in a down turned market for close to asking.
I have subsequently recommended Stan van Woerkens to other friends and acquaintances that are considering buying or selling properties.
Stan has also shown a sincere interest in community involvement. Recently he has supported FANS, Funding for the Arts on the North Shore, a local endowment for emerging artists of all mediums.
Stan is energetic, positive and a sincerely nice and genuine man. I would be happy to recommend him to anyone concerned”
Nicola Morgan – Seller and Buyer West and North Vancouver Artist, FANS Executive member "Stan van Woerkens has helped me amazingly well over the past months. The first work we did together was worth a lot to my company when I started understanding the complex Vancouver market. It was an incredible break through for my company with some well thought out details and searching. I realized early on that Stan van Woerkens is very client focused and determined in his negotiation techniques. I have no hesitation in using Stan again on the sale and the purchase of our next property".
Vladimir Gorobtsov – Buyer West Vancouver "Stan - just a quick note to say thanks very much for all the information I garnered to get my self settled from Toronto. I must say I came along with the usual reservations that you have about whether to move to a new city, but your help was brilliant. Excellent follow up communication, helpful and most importantly relevant, plenty of information to take away and refer to as well. Now all I have to do is put your info into action. Stan van Woerkens did a great job helping. And prevented me from becoming too discouraged”
Corey Johnstone- Buyer Vancouver “Last year, while visiting friends in Europe, we decided to sell our house in North Vancouver. We called Stan van Woerkens and gave him very short notice, as we wanted to try and take advantage of the late spring and summer seasons to sell our home.
Stan responded very quickly and professionally. He was very quick to grasp our situation and he went straight to work, with the objective of getting our property on the market as quickly as possible.
Despite the speed with which he worked, Stan van Woerkens took on the challenge in a thoughtful and deliberate way, providing detailed market information to guide our decisions. Stan provided alternative marketing strategies which helped to stimulate demand.
As a result of Stan's focus and dedication, we were able to sell our house within ten days.
Everything Stan promised to do in support of our move was delivered; in fact, he consistently exceeded our expectations. And all this while we were in rural France!
Stan van Woerkens negotiated on our behalf and skilfully guided us throughout the entire process, and beyond.
I cannot recommend Stan highly enough.”
Charles Brook - Seller Canyon Heights, North Vancouver "Stan is the most sophisticated realtor I have ever met.

He is the person who can be trusted. Whenever you need help, he is always there. Thanks Stan."
