"This was our first time buying/selling a property with a realtor and Thyra exceeding all our expectations. She explained all the ins and outs of the process to us in a manner that was detailed yet understandable. She always made herself available to talk over the phone or in person. She had a team of exceptional associates that really brought out the full potential of our existing property. She was able to find us our dream home and sell our existing place for what it was worth and all in a timely and enjoyable manner. Could not recommend her enough."
Graeme and Heather Vass, N. Van
"Thyra McKilligan is an exceptional realtor. I really didn't know how to proceed with selling my house. Thyra was a very active participant in helping to preparing the house and yard to achieve a welcoming, desirable property for sale. She always kept me informed of progress and was just a phone call away for any questions I had. The entire experience was relaxed, knowing I had a friend to help with every aspect of this nerve racking (for me) endeavor. Her approach is to provide personalized service and support. This is what makes her a highly valued, efficient and effective realtor."
Liz Jordan, Lions Bay
“We’ve worked with a fair number of agents in our time and found Thyra to be among the best. Above all, she has integrity. Thyra put her work and customer satisfaction above any fees she earned. She enjoys her work. Experience and intelligence. The two must go together. She has years of experience and the brains to put them to use – for a successful result. Thyra advised as to what a credible asking price should be, what we needed to do in way of preparation. In addition she brought in the appropriate furniture pieces and accessories to ‘stage’ the house for showing. Commitment. Thyra answered phone calls immediately or as soon as is possible. She was at the sale property as often as needed. Closing the sale. Once she had an offer to work with she did her magic and made things happen. No back-and-forth. No bickering. Legal knowledge. No mistakes or missteps. The transaction was clean and professionally carried out.”

“Thyra’s knowledge of the local real estate market and her experience in collaborating with other realtors proved to be invaluable. I am delighted to have accepted a fair price offer within 2 weeks of listing. Thyra took the time and had the patience to guide me through the many steps: pricing, staging, listing, marketing, analyzing and finalizing counter-offers and contract. Thyra’s professionalism combined with her friendly, straight-forward personality allowed her to offer advice and accept my decisions. I strongly recommend Thyra as a hard-working realtor, focused on helping her client achieve the best possible outcome.”

“As a couple and family we’ve moved more than 12 times. Different states, different countries, sometimes different jobs. No matter the reason or distance, leaving a home and finding another is full of stress and possibility. We look to realtors to facilitate the transaction and provide some understanding about the location, if it is new. Less commonly, we’ve been fortunate to have worked with a few realtors who knew the transactional aspects, but were also conscientious and motivated to help. And then there is Thyra. Two years. Yes, two years of relentless house hunting, market research and education, objective feedback to our dodgy assumptions, availability on par with your best friend, combined with the highest degree of care and aggressive representation, that we have ever experienced. Simply put: the best realtor on Earth…”

“There aren’t many realtors who are able to adapt to changeable market conditions particularly in tougher times when the market slows, however Thyra is one of them. Her experience and ability to understand and react to market conditions has meant that she has been consistently selling houses and helping buyers, despite the dramatic slowdown in the Vancouver real estate market over the last couple of years, to become one of the top performing realtors. We have found her professionalism, patience, personable approach and sheer hard work to be invaluable in getting the deal done. Thank you Thyra.”

“I am pleased to provide this reference for Thyra McKilligan. We have been working with Thyra for many months with a complicated three property transaction. This has required very competent skills that Thyra has demonstrated repeatedly. Numerous adjustments involving closing and possessions dates, dealing with changes in requests from both sides, and ensuring that all the paperwork was completed on time were some of the challenges she has fulfilled very professionally.
We thank her for her expertise and for the personality, she shared with us.”
