One of the hardest things I had to do was to put up my house for sale, having lived there for 28 years. However it was time to downsize. I was introduced to Thyra and she was very astute - she knew I was not ready to sell until I had an idea of where I wanted to live next. Thyra spent considerable time showing me places based on my needs and criteria. Her advice: don’t make a hasty decision, you’ll know when you are ready. Within a few months I was ready and listed the house. Thyra was phenomenal- she analyzed the market, profiled my house as the family home it was, and made the whole process seamless and trouble free - the sale was completed in 10 days. Then it was time to look for my next move - Thyra was again phenomenal. She helped me find the right home. Thyra was professional, caring and always there for me. Thyra provides excellent service, is trustworthy and a very experienced and ethical realtor. I would recommend her to anyone who wants to sell or buy a home. It has been a pleasure to work with her.
We are so appreciative of the services provided by Thyra during our home search. As first-time home buyers, we could always count on Thyra to provide excellent advice and guidance on the true value of a property and if it was the right fit for us. It is clear that she is very experienced and has a high level of knowledge about the real estate market. In such a hot market, Thyra made the process smooth and easy. Although we hope to not be searching for a new home any time soon, we would undoubtedly use Thyra again for future purchases and sales.

Andrew and I were thrilled with the quality of service from our realtor, Thyra McKilligan. Thanks to her professionalism, responsiveness, caring style and attention to detail we had an amazing, supportive experience selling our home of twenty years. We would recommend Thyra without hesitation.

From my first contact with Thyra about selling my home, I found her to be very pleasant, informative and knowledgeable of the process. Thyra ensured every detail was expertly addressed. The online listing she prepared, including photography, was superb. Thyra was always timely and sensitive to the challenges for both seller and buyer. The sale was completed to the great satisfaction of all concerned in only six days from listing. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Thyra during the sale of my property, and highly recommend her for real estate services.

Thyra did a phenomenal job selling my family’s property in Lions Bay. She was patient, considerate, and communicating very well. The selling would have been quite difficult if it was not helped by Thyra, and she did it in less than a month! I would recommend Thyra to anyone who is looking for a highly professional and trustworthy real estate agent.
~ Warm regards, Freda

I have been a client of Thyra McKilligan, not just in buying a home, but selling a home ten years later! She is a true professional, and extremely sensitive in accommodating the needs of her client. I would not hesitate a moment to use her Realtor services should I need them again in the future. If buying or selling a home, she is a true expert, and adds a most personal touch to doing business with her clients.

Thyra McKilligan came into our home as a real estate agent. From our first meeting to sale completion Thyra reacted and responded as if we were her only clients. Her focus and understanding of the market were a constant reminder of why we had chosen her in the first place. Her experience guides her to value the property as it should be.She is highly professional and at the same time very relatable. Thyra is very good at overcoming objections, and is able to pivot with ease. Her passion for the industry is evident. She came into our home as an agent and left as a friend.

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) endeavour. 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
Thyra is the best! She is such a hard worker and has extensive experience and knowledge of the market. We felt in good hands as she helped us navigate the process of purchasing our condo. We always felt she had our best interest and went "above and beyond" to get the deal done. Can't thank her enough, we highly recommend Thyra.

We’ve worked with a fair number of agents in our time and found Thyra to be among the best. Above all, 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.

Thyra recently assisted us with the sale of my late father’s apartment in West Vancouver. Her advice and guidance was invaluable and made the whole process so much easier from start to finish. She worked hard on our behalf and kept us well informed of all developments. We can say from personal experience that Thyra is a skilled professional who knows the markets and is genuinely focused on providing the best possible service to her clients.
~ Owen & Sabine Jones
Thyra guided us through the entire marketing process and provided us with a well informed analysis of the competition around us, what price range we were in, and our home’s strong and weak points. She also made recommendations to make our home more attractive to buyers and was very clear on what projects should be avoided, saving us both time and money. Her guidance on preparing our home to show at its best, was invaluable! Thyra was wonderfully skilled in dealing with counter-offers and helped us resolve issues by drawing on expert help. To sum up, a great real estate agent is money well spent!
