Stan understands the north shore market, especially the Canyon Heights area, extremely well. He was able to facilitate the completion of our purchase under challenging circumstances. We were away on a 2 week vacation in Europe and, even with the time change and rental/tenant situation that required special attention, Stan made it all happen with few hiccups. Stan went above and beyond even after the handover date. We were unavailable for the move of the seller's furniture at the end of the month and Stan supervised it completely on our behalf. He has high standards in terms of customer service. I would highly recommend Stan for anyone buying or selling a home.

Stan provided an excellent real estate service throughout the entire process of buying our dream home in North Vancouver, Canada.
Lonnie and I started to look for our first home in North Vancouver nearly a year ago. We thank you so very much for all you did working with us during this time. Your patience, senses of humor, frequent communication, professionalism, dependability and realty knowledge on the Greater Vancouver area made the purchase process so much easier for us. We could not imagine going through it without your experience and care.
We met Stan through an open house while he was the listing agent. After the first few emails and phone conversations, we knew instantly that we had selected the right buyer’s agent. You demonstrate professionalism, honesty and integrity that are truly "above and beyond", rendering you truly superior in your field. Buying or selling a house can be an extremely traumatic ordeal, especially in the real estate markets in Vancouver, but you have thoroughly "de-fused" our experience and provided an entirely positive and very smooth transition.
There is no way for us to express how much we appreciate the tremendous value of working with you, and it is without hesitation we would seek you out with any future real estate needs here in Great Vancouver area. We would gladly and enthusiastically recommend you to anyone and everyone.
Thank you Lei, Lonnie, Zak and Luna!
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.
Ric Cochrane - North Vancouver
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. I am very impressed with his very current understanding of the market place, his professional attitude, his personal skills in negotiation and savvy prompt service while guiding one through the process seamlessly. He is the person who can be trusted. Whenever you need help, he is always there. Thanks Stan."
