Here are some comments from Michael's clients...
Karen and I would like to thank you for your professional marketing services in listing of our family home in South Burnaby. We were very impressed with your local market experience and trusted that you would carefully guide us with your strategic marketing plan.
We were confident leaving the listing and sale process to you especially considering the challenges with recent changes in market activity. You have developed an excellent listing system to help ensure how we could maximize the sales price in the shortest timeframe allowing for the full exposure to MLS and Open Houses before accepting offers.
Your system offers Seller's the best opportunity to gain 'multiple offers' and even though we only had one offer, you managed to use the fact that other agents and buyers were showing an interest to negotiate the best price and terms for us. Without a doubt you helped us achieve our goal.
Considering your professionalism, experience and market knowledge we would be confident to recommend you to friends and family.

Michael Dickie has completed the sale of our family home. He sold it in two weeks time which was excellent as the sale began in early March, with the climate, dreary, rainy, wet, overcast, etc. What an incredible and very pleasant surprise.
My father met Michael a number of years ago. He was very impressed with a young man, building his business in a most professional manner. My father died three years ago and had said he would like Michael to take care of the sale of our home when the time arrived. Michael kept in touch, and recently met with both my sister and brother, who were also favourably impressed.
To make an informed decision the three of us interviewed with two other realtors and it became immediately crystal clear, my father, as always, was the best judge of character.
Michael lived up to our expectation in every respect, without exception. Always very professional, keeping us informed of each and every step. He is punctual and precise. He was very understanding of my situation and expressed heartfelt compassion over the sale of our family home, and with two siblings needing to be informed on matters, he demonstrated extreme patience.
Should you be considering selling your home, whatever the circumstance do not hesitate for one moment to select Michael Dickie to represent you and your home with the utmost respect and diligent efforts.
Never would there be a harder working, friendlier Real Estate representative than Michael Dickie.
In your time of stress in selling a home he is there day by day with an up to date report on progress, attending to every detail in the successful sale of our property.
We would not hesitate in recommending him to future clients.

This past November we decided to put our house on the market and chose Michael Dickie to represent us. We are very pleased with our decision to go with him. He literally took the stress and headache out of selling our home and we found him to be extremely pleasant and basically a terrific guy to work with. He was VERY professional, helpful and accommodating with finding our new home and also managed to get us an amazing deal on the price! We are thrilled with our new place, and look forward to spending many happy years in our new neighborhood. Without a doubt we will definitely recommend Michael to any of our friends who plan on buying or selling. Thanks for a job well done.
When I decided last summer that the time had come to sell my home I have lived in for many years, I then had to choose a real estate consultant and real estate company that I felt would best represent my needs and at the same time provide sound professional advice and expertise on how to obtain top value for my home.
It wasn't long before I was confident that I had made a wise decision in listing my home with Michael Dickie, Consultant with Westburn Real Estate.
During the time it took to sell my home, Mr. Dickie kept me informed on what was available to buy, always considering the kind of home I was looking for and its affordability. He not only sold my home at a satisfactory price, but was successful in finding me another home, one I never believed I would own.
I highly recommend Michael Dickie to anyone who is seeking the services of a knowledgeable and reliable real estate consultant. His sincere and professional manner is an indication of the high standards he has set for himself as a career professional.
Recently, our mother listed her house with Michael Dickie, a sales representative from your office. She had just lost her husband of forty years and could no longer afford to remain in the family home. This was a major happening in her life. We needed a Real Estate agent who could understand the situation and handle it accordingly. We live in Vernon and were unable to do much being so far away. Michael treated Mom as though she was his own mother, often going out of his way to do things that were not part of the job. He made sure that she fully understood everything that was happening with the listing. He kept in contact with her and also with us here in Vernon.
Michael made an extremely difficult time in our mother's life bearable and we can't tell you how much we appreciated it. They formed a special kind of friendship and she looked forward to his calls.
I believe that this type of caring on the part of a Real Estate agent is rare and would not like it to pass unnoticed.
We have many friends who transfer to Vancouver from time to time and we will certainly recommend Michael and .

We met Michael through my Mother. We listed Mom's house in Burnaby & Mom bought a condo. Mom died recently and again we called Michael (why wouldn't you call the best). This transaction proved very difficult for Michael, as family was involved. It was a bit messy as some family members proved to be difficult. Michael handled them beautifully.
The Condo sold in a short time. Also I give my highest recommendation & respect to Michael.
My wife would have normally written this letter but she was buried yesterday. Michael came up to Vernon to say good-bye to her.
I only wanted to let you know how impressed we were with Michael Dickie.
We had listed our house for almost one year with other companies and it did not sell even with a lower price so we decided not to sell the house for another two years. We had many, many calls from real estate agents but we did not agree to list with anyone until Michael called us. I was very impressed with what he had to say and the manner in which he presented himself. We found him to be very trustworthy and to have our best interests at heart. The benefits he presented in listing with brought us comfort and ease.
After 5 days, the sold sign was up at a price we did not believe! He did a very good job and we wish to thank him for all he has done for us.
