"We've chosen to search for a new apartment with Camelia because of her

wisdom, energetic approach and get-er-done attitude. We certainly were not

Camelia approached us in early October requesting whether we would be interested in selling our home. At the time, the thought hadn’t even crossed our mind as this has been our family home for over 43 years. Many, many wonderful memories have been shared in this home.

 

After having numerous family discussions, we thought it would be in our best interest to sell our home and buy a new home in close proximity to our children and grandchildren. We met with Camelia and after an evening of speaking with her, we felt a connection and decided to hire Camelia as our real estate agent. Keep in mind….we have had numerous realtors knock on our door to sell our house.

Camelia wasn’t only interested in selling our home and making a commission. She truly cared about how much our current home meant to us and what we were looking for in terms of buying.

 

She began by sending us emails of new properties and within a week she found us our beautiful new home. Now came the hard part….letting go of our current house. The sign went up for sale and within a couple of days we had our first open house. She went above and beyond to create the most traffic for the open house, from hiring a professional photographer/videographer to showcase our home to preparing brochures as handouts for the many, many people that visited the open house. She kept us apprised of everything which we felt was really important. She answered our many questions and we never felt rushed with her answers.

 

Our home sold in less than 2 weeks all because of Camelia. Her professionalism, motivation and hard work throughout the whole process demonstrated all of her wonderful qualities. I would, without any hesitation, recommend Camelia to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.

Dear Camelia,

 

Thank you so much for making a dream come true, when I didn't even know it was a dream! Selling, at such a nice "price point", so quickly and at the same time, saving me so much stress on my part with the "as is, where is" and no conditions offer. I will definitely write a nice note for your web page. It was a pleasure to deal with you.

 

Thank-you for your diligence, personal interest and consideration in the process of selling my long-time home. You did EXACTLY what you said you were going to do. As well, you heard what was important to me! Within the time frame you had established, I had an offer at my "price point", and within the desired "conditions of sale". It doesn't get any better than this.

If there are any more questions, comments please do not hesitate to contact me... as this time I will definitely reply! A big hug for you.


Your kids are lucky to have such a great mom.

 

Warm regards,

Dear Camelia,

 

We are most pleased with the help we received from our realtor, Camelia, in listing and selling our house. With amazing energy and desire to help, Camelia listed and sold the house within a few days. She organized and timed everything to create the most traffic, bring most people to the open house, and attract the most interest from buyers, such that she created an environment of competition and multiple offers. It only took few days from first contacting Camelia to having the house sold, and we are extremely pleased with the results, as well as the fact that she obtained the sell price we wanted. We are extremely pleased with the help and services of Camelia.

 

Best Regards,

All about Camelia ...

Camelia is a wonderfully compassionate and personable person when dealing with her clients.  She accentuates a warm and caring attitude when approaching either the seller or buyer's business and shows a mature, positive and knowledgeable acumen.  Camelia attends to questions right away and doesn't leave the client waiting for answers to matters that are important to them.  I have used her to help both my mother and mother-in-law, sell their homes and get into new residences.  There was no pressure and she was always respectful and kind.  I would recommend her to anyone and everyone that needs expertise when selling or purchasing homes.
Sincerely,
Diane Morris

Dear Camelia, 

 

I want to thank you for your outstanding service and patience in assisting me with the purchase of my new home!

Working with Camelia has been an absolute pleasure. Camelia was exceptionally professional and a great person to work with. She provided me with all the resources and contacts I needed to make the whole experience less stressful. She was always available and responded promptly to any inquiry I had, and she helped me go through the stressful experience of being a first time buyer.

I was lucky enough to find a fantastic real estate agent, who I will definitely recommend to anyone who asks, but I also have a gained a great friend!

Thank you,
Alina"

Hi Camelia,

 

We just want to express our thanks for the good job you have done selling our house. We talked to quite a few real estate agents before we chose you, and we think that was the smartest and luckiest choice we made for our house,

Our Burnaby house is an irregular shaped corner lot, with a creek running behind the house which made it harder to sell, especially in such a slow market: hardly any houses were sold during this time. We appreciate all the hard work you have done.

Just want to let you know a couple of things that we were so impressed with:

1. We like the way you prepared the house for listing. You did a thorough cleaning of the house and did all the staging to make it look more appealing to customers.

2. You worked hard to promote the house, did lots of open house and showings, without disturbing the tenants.

3. You kept us in the loop, let us know the results of open houses and personal house showing right away, and give us a weekly update of what’s going on with the house and market, which we appreciate a lot.

4.We also like that you treated the house like your own. Since we had moved out of the house and lived quite far away, it was comforting that you take care of it so well for us.

 

Thanks a lot for your professional attitude and hard work. Of all the agents we have dealt with during the years, we have to say you are best.

To Whom It May Concern;

My wife and I first met Camelia Manea while we were checking out potential places for relocation. We went to an Open House that she was presenting and were impressed by her knowledge of the condo building and the neighbourhood surrounding it. While we chose not to relocate at that time,when it finally came time to sell we gave Camelia a call. From the moment she came in for the estimate to the time it came to accept an offer, Camelia went "above and beyond" in the staging of our home so that it would be impressive to the many people who came for a look. She immediately notified other realtors and agents of the availability of our home. The photographs and brouchure, as well as the 360 degree "tour" that she put together made us want to buy it ourselves! She was working for US. She had ready answers to all of our questions. She gave us plenty of notice to be out of our home so that other agents could bring their clients in for a look. We were never "left in the dark" as to the reactions of potential buyers. 2 Open Houses and many individual showings led to an offer at our price point! Her enthusiasm throughout the entire process meant that we had no anxious moments .By the time we sold, we had decided to leave the Lower Mainland and live elsewhere. Camelia put us in touch with an agent who she trusted. That agent worked exclusively for us --- taking us to 26 homes in 5 days - after which we made an accepted offer on a beautiful home! We appreciate the hard work and passion that Camelia brought when she took us on as a client. Having looked at many homes recently, we can say without equivocation that she wants her clients' homes to be sold quickly and at or above the suggested price point. While it appeared to us in a lot of cases that some agents don't seem to have their clients' interests in mind (little or no prep for presentation, for example), Camelia never made it seem like she was working for anyone other than us.

 

We would highly recommend Camelia Manea to anyone wanting to sell their own property Sincerely, Tim & Barbara Latham timlatham2015@gmail.com  204.887.5844
