We are fortunate to have worked with Aki. Aki has been very patient with us throughout our search process and provided us with objective and down to earth advice. Aki was with us from our house search all up through completion, and went above and beyond to ensure that our transaction was closed smoothly and that we were getting a reasonable deal. Our transaction was an assignment of contract which could get complicated; however, Aki pulled together resources from across her company to ensure that she understood the nuances of our transaction. We truly appreciate Aki"s care and dedication to our home purchase. Thank you, Aki
Aki is the third realtor I used and sure will be my future realtor. She is good in different languages. She serves her client not only with professional service, but more importantly with her heart. She knows what her clients need, matching them well with the property in the market.
It is when I saw how she interact with her clients that I decided to use her services. Her interaction continues after a property transaction is done. She attended the property when the new owner needs repair, upgrade work on the property, which is not supposed to be her work anymore.
She treats her clients just like a friend than a business client. Her warm character can be witnessed especially towrds the elderly. This attitude caused her to stand out from other realtors I used to work with.
Lately she worked out my mother's property sale and purchase of a new property professionally, considering the best options for my mom. My mom and I are totally satisfied with her services.
She will be my agent in selling my condo next. Definitely, she will be the one whenever people ask for referral of an"extraordinary" realtor.
Aki was a great choice for our real estate needs. She was very attentive to details even when we were just chatting about possibilities. She took into account that 3 of us and sometimes 4 were each expressing ideas on what I needed/wanted and seemed to be able to go straight to the one or two that we should see.
Aki made herself available on short notice and often got us in to see something that we thought we should see, though it was out of our designated criteria. OR she might know that it was not suitable and advise us to look at something else.
Pleasant, understanding, willing and ready to go to work for us.

I have had the opportunity to once again use Aki's services for both buying and selling my condo in Vancouver. She made the process seamless and helped facilitate for a fairly easy transition in what may have otherwise been a difficult one.
Her attention to detail is exceptional and I especially appreciated her effort to answer all my questions in a timely and thorough manner.
Not only can I fully recommend her services, but I would use them again, should such a time arise, without hesitation.

Our introduction to Aki came through a friend who had worked with Aki to acquire a North Vancouver property. Our friend couldn't speak highly enough about Aki and her service, so we had high expectations of a good experience. Reality was that Aki not only met these expectations but surpassed them with her genuine kind, friendly, patient, knowledgeable and professional attitude. Overall, we had an excellent experience working with Aki and would recommend her without a moment's hesitation.
Aki worked the North Shore market for many years and hence has a strong understanding of the market and its nuances. She also recognizes that for most people a home purchase is a signigficant event, hence displays great patience and is attentive in understanding needs and requirements. Furthermore, she is flexible as and when these requirements evolve. In our case we were about to put an offer on one property for which Aki had already done the paperwork, but at the last minute we changed our minds. This was not an issue in the slightest as Aki sincerely wanted us to make the right decision. We also appreciated that she was not afraid to point out issues and highlight factors for consideration that we might otherwise have overlooked, risks associated with creeks for example.
Avalability of properties can sometimes be difficult in this hot property market. However, we found Aki to be completely focused on our search and extremely responsive when we highlighted potentially interesting properties. She would always respond rapidly with information and potential viewing times. She is most definitely not 'nine to five' and you can expect prompt and constant communication, and she consistently displays a 'whatever it takes' attitude.
What made Aki's service truly special was that she gave generously of her personal time to assist us in many other areas, going significantly beyond what one could reasonably have expected from a Realtor. Quite simply, you won't go wrong with Aki and will undoubtedly have a great experience with her.

Thank you so much for representing us in the competitive Metro Vancouver market. As first time home buyers, we were feeling nervous about the process, but you walked us through every step of the way and explained everything clearly.
We appreciated your speedy responses to our inquiries and immediate contact as soon as new postings came out. You took our preferences into account and helped us remain realistic when looking at places. Bookings for viewings were made efficiently and accommodated to our busy schedule.
Most of all, thank you for your honest advice and consistent support throughout the process. You are kind, patient, yet professional! We wouldn't have had it any other way.

I have recently bought a property in Richmond, BC. Ms. Aki Li Foster represented as my agent.
I am not a first time home buyer. This is my fourth one. For the past three properties, I have used another real estate agent to represent me in buying and selling those properties. He is also a son of my friend. But, I was not happy with him dealing things with the other party. I felt that he just cares about nailing down a deal rather than caring for my best interest.
After all those experiences that I had with him, I found that Aki is the best real estate agent to be working with. She cares for the best interest of her client. For example, when I wanted to view the property at my convenient time, she could make it happen. When it was necessary for me to sign the documents, she drove down to my house in person rather than emailing to me to sign and send it back to her. Also before making an offer, she gathered all the required documents that I need to have in making a decision.
She is very punctual and professional in doing her job and I believe she never missed a thing in acting as my representative until I could finally make a decision.
I hereby like to give a recommendation with full confidence to Aki for those who need her services for representing you as your real estate agent.

I have recently had the pleasure of utilizing Aki's skills for both the selling of a residence and the purchase of my new home.
Her ability to show my old residence in its best light facilitated for a quick and easy sale; while during the purchase of my new home, I found her attention todetail and her candor an invaluable resource.
Throughout the process at every step she provided the necessary expertise and guidance to make my transition a smooth and flawless one.
A very appreciative thank you,

Aki was a tremendous help in facilitating both the selling of my house and with the purchase of my new condo. She made what could have been a very stressful transition manageable, and completed in stages within an agreed upon time frame. It actually went according to plan.
I initially was hesitant to pay the going rate for agent's fees, especially when informed of competitor's rates. I was so impressed with Aki at our first meeting that I decided then and there to have her be my agent for what in the end was the purchase of my condo. In essence, this would be an audition. She was very much interested in listing my house with her and arrived with information pertaining to my house and neighborhood that even I didn't know. I was hesitant to list with Aki initially but after going to a number of viewings with her where she often was more informed than the representing agent for the seller, I changed my mind. Aki was thorough in her research and seemed to always ask the right questions. More often than not, Aki provided answers to my questions when clearly other agents weren't able to. She passed the audition and I felt confident knowing she would be as meticulous and committed to selling my house as she had been with assisting me with my purchase. I am pleased to report I was absolutely correct in my assessment.
Your diligence, care and hard workd is totally appreciated. Thank you Aki for all that you have done. You really did make it easy for me.
