We were looking for a special house with heritage and character in West Vancouver.  Over the long journey, Aki was unfailingly patient and always had our best interests at heart, helping us avoid hasty decisions through her careful analysis and deep professional knowledge.

When we finally found the perfect property, she went over and beyond what was expected to ensure that the process was as stress-free as possible.  We have recommended her to all our friends and will certainly look for her again for our future real estate needs.

Aki is the most amazing real estate agent ever.  She sold a condo and a house for me during the challenging housing market of 2021 – 2022.

She is very professional, knowledgeable and did all the right things to ensure a smooth completion.  She answered all my questions and explained all the multi forms that are required for a complex transaction.

She went above and beyond my expectations.  I am very lucky to have had Aki as my real estate agent and highly recommend her to anyone who is planning a housing change.

"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.

Thanks, Aki."

"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.

Availability 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."

"Dear Aki,

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 Foster is a reliable agent, has a dynamic personality.  She has plentiful expertise, works conscientiously and attentively, no matter in buying or selling a house.  She always provided appropriate advice.  We appreciate all the work done by Aki and would be happy to work with her again in the future.

"Dear Aki,

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all of your help, concern and efforts in selling our apartment in Abbotsford and buying one in North Vancouver. It was really a pleasure for us to work with you mainly because of your good advices while considering our concern seriously. We are also grateful for your great work in finding a good apartment for us in North Vancouver. You were always on time, with a lot of information about the apartments we visited.

We have never seen such professional and dedicated realtor like you before and this is the reason that we would like to recommend your service to our friends, relatives and anyone who is going to buy or sell a property."

"Recommendation for Aki Li Foster

My experience looking for and purchasing my new home with Aki Li Foster has been one of pleasure and positivity. She is very knowledgeable of market conditions as well as of all the rules and processes that I was not aware of.

Because of this, I feel she is invaluable for anyone in the market either for buying or selling a property. And if she doesn't know the answer to your questions, she finds out and follows up with you on a timely basis.

Aki is very professional, cordial, punctual and will really work for you in getting the best property and deal available. After working with her in the purchase of my new home my only regret was not using her to sell my house before my purchase!

I can recommend no one higher than her in her field in this market."

"Dear Aki,

I like to thank you for the effective sale of my North Vancouver property, #428 1633 Mackay Ave.

I have been a party to a large number of residential transactions in the past. I had however not seen such professionalism amongst numerous real estate professionals that I have been associated with. Your knowledge, integrity, sensitivity, willingness to work hard and professionalism was truly impressive.

It was a pleasure working with you over the past months and to the successful conclusion of sale and I will definitely be recommending you to friends and family and look forward to working with you again in the future."

"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 worked is totally appreciated.  Thank you Aki for all that you have done.  You really did make it easy for me."

"Dear Aki,

On behalf of Kuniko and myself, I would like to thank you for handling the sale of our townhouse in such an efficient and professional manner.

Your prompt actions and initiatives helped us to sell the house quickly even though we were faced with a difficult market and conditions. In particular I appreciated you personally dealing with the strata council and management company, who are difficult to deal with at the best of times, to get all required information and documents in a timely manner. Also, thank you for driving out all the way to Surry on a regular basis to hold open houses and meet with potential buyers.

Kuniko and I great appreciate all the hard work you put in on our behalf, and we would be happy to recommend your services to our friends."


September 2010

"Dear Aki,

Just a short note to personally extend my sincere gratitude on behalf of the K's, for the very unprecedented speed in which you successfully marketed and sold their West End Condo, especially in this very depressed condo market.

This note is not just to express a sincere thanks to you for having sold the unit within their price expectation and in such a professional and expeditious time frame, but to offer up our appreciation to you, especially for you personal involvement in arranging for the removal of the furnishings, power washing of the patio and the cleaning of the unit and not the least of which, your hands-on assistance in the cleaning and vacuuming of the unit in preparation for the sale. I am convinced that the unit whould not have sold as promptly, if it were not for your total commitment and expertise.

As a professional engineer who has owned and operated his own consulting firm for over 30 years, I can say without hesitation that I have not had the pleasure of working with someone as professional and dedicated as you Aki. I was extremely impressed and as I have already stated to you, I intend to recommend your services to all my friends, when and if they are in the market.

Again, on behalf of the Ks, our heartflet thanks to you Aki, a professional who went beyond the call of duty, to satisfy her client."

"Dear Aki,

I would like to thank you for your hard work and effort on the sale of my parents’ house.

You immediately, came and took photos and measurements of the house to be advertised on the net, and I thought you had a very professional way of advertising by sending a colour postcard with info of the house within the neighbourhood. Also you provided a house inspector to come and write a report on the condition of the house, which gave an insight to any interested buyers. You held many week-end open houses during our extreme cold winter and kept a list of the people with their various comments.

You frequently, communicated by phone or email to keep us informed in regards to the house.

Thank you for the trips you made out to Richmond to accommodate Marilyn, and the times you came to accompany us to the lawyers, and the offer to help empty the house.

On behalf of Marilyn and myself, it was a pleasure to have you as our agent and I sincerely appreciate your personable work ethics, thank you so much."
