My interest in Real Estate started early. Growing up in Vancouver, my dad and I would attend every open house in the neighbourhood and make a game of guessing the listing price of houses for sale. Before getting involved in Real Estate, I worked at Wasserman + Partners, BC’s largest independent advertising agency, in their Accounts and Strategic Services department. In 2013, I decided to apply my knowledge and experience to Real Estate.
During my time at Wasserman + Partners, I worked closely with clients such as ICBC, Gold Seal, SunRype, Encorp Pacific, and Port Metro Vancouver. This experience taught me the key to building great relationships: open communication and transparency – I am a firm believer in keeping my clients informed throughout the entire process. I also understand how overwhelming it can be to navigate through the nuances of buying or selling a home, so you’ll never feel alone.
With extensive experience working with Buyers and Sellers, and a background in Marketing and Advertising, I am well equipped to market properties in order to receive the highest value. Whether it takes a week, a month, or a year, to purchase or sell your home, I will work to ensure a good fit.
Having recently relocated to Canada from the UK, we were nervous and uninformed about the real estate processes in Vancouver. Mike came to us highly recommended and we most definitely did not regret this introduction! Mike is brilliant - he was extremely patient and always straightforward with us - priceless when you have just moved continents and don’t know what to expect from what is a crazy market! We simply cannot recommend him enough and look forward to working with Mike again in the future.
Mike was so great to work with. He made the process of selling our house as stress-free as possible. We felt confident and at ease with Mike because he paid attention to small details and treated our home like his own. We never felt rushed. Mike sold our house quickly and for a great price. We can't say enough good things about our experience with Mike!
Mike was a pleasure to deal with. This was my first condo purchase and at no time did he make me feel intimidated during the process despite my lack of knowledge. I requested a top 10 list for the price range & demographic area that I was interested in - he provided a top 20. Any time that I called, texted or emailed, I received a timely response. After I had put in an offer on my place, I still wanted to keep looking as to make sure that I was getting the best deal - he was more than happy to oblige. I would highly recommend Mike as your realtor. I know he will be mine again in the future.
We were brought to Mike through a friend, and are very thankful for the referral. Mike was very punctual and pleasant throughout the entire process. He never let us down making appointments and arranging visits to fit our schedule. We would see anywhere from one to six houses in a day and he always had our best interests at heart. Because of his “go-get er” attitude, he used his skills to get us a look inside a home that had not even been listed yet. Of course this was the home we ended up buying! When it came time to make an offer he gave us honest, sound advice and because of that we landed our perfect home without paying anymore than we wanted. We are forever thankful for Mike and would recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
We were so pleased with Mike and his hard work, caring personality, and knowledge of the industry. He sold my sister and boyfriend their first home a few months prior. When we were looking we knew it was going to be hard to find the right home as we have a large family. After a few months of looking, we came across "the home" and Mike happened to be away that weekend, but he called the realtor to let him know we would be coming to the open house. That day we made an offer, it fell through and we were devastated. Mike told us he would keep in touch with the realtor incase the deal fell through, and sure enough we got a call the next day! We got it!! Mike never gave up, even when we had our doubts. He worked hard for us every minute right till the end! We would recommend Mike to anyone, he's one of a kind!
As first time home buyers, Mike was referred to us from our friends who had just purchased a home with him as their Relator. We were not disappointed, as Mike gave us his undivided attention. He took all of our needs into consideration and understood our financial position. He worked extremely hard at finding us our perfect home. Our schedules were all over the map but Mike was able accommodate, and was able to make appointments with all the homes we wanted to see, around our busy schedules. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone who is buying or selling their home and will most definitely use Mike as our realtor in the future.
Mike was an absolute pleasure to work with. As a first time home buyer, he clearly understood my needs, reservations, and was helpful with any questions or concerns I had. He was great with following up with me, and responded promptly to any requests for property viewings (which is extremely important in this market). He accompanied me to almost all the listings I viewed, and clearly outlined the benefits and possible challenges. His knowledge of the Vancouver housing market is a definite asset in ensuring a successful bid. I would recommend Mike to anyone looking to purchase a home.
Mike is simply the BEST! I have worked with Mike for years now for both buying and selling. He helped me with purchasing two rental properties in Langley, purchasing a rental property in Chilliwack, and selling my Port Coquitlam condo. Mike made things so easy for me - from arranging keys and signing everything by e-signature. He is easy to work with, responds quickly (much appreciated) and made me feel like a valued client. I recommend him to my friends & family and will definitely be using him again for all my real estate needs.
Mike helped me purchase 2 apartments in Vancouver. Both times it was a great experience. He was extremely professional, very knowledgeable about the Real Estate Market and was invested in finding me a place that suited my taste/needs no matter how long it took to find. As well, on a couple occasions he pointed out certain information in the Strata minutes that helped me make an informed decision about my purchases. He is currently helping me find a third place and there is no one else I would want to work with. Highly recommended! Thanks Mike!
Mike is amazing! As first time home buyers in a competitive market like Vancouver, we had many questions about the process, and he was so patient and walked us through every detail along the way. He made the time to come with us to all of our showings and open houses, and was very helpful pointing out the important details we might have missed. He understood our financial position, wants, needs, and worked with us to find our perfect first apartment. We had the utmost trust in him to help us with this purchase, and I would absolutely recommend him to all of my friends and family. Thank you Mike for everything!
Mike was amazing to work with. He found us our home and made the buying process a lot less stressful then it could have been. I would recommend him to anyone.
My experience selling my home with Mike was amazing. He is organized, punctual and has a great attention to detail. He also knows the Vancouver market well and I think his recommendation of price point and staging made a big difference in the quick sale of my home. He was patient and flexible with me as I was in a different time zone for much of the process. I would definitely recommend Mike and I plan to use him again for my next purchase.
I have worked as a photographer with Mike Bowie for 3 years now and I would happily say that he is one of the best realtors out there. His attention to detail and knowledge within the real estate field is second to none. Mike is always extremely organized and punctual for our appointments. He has a great demeanor with his clients and always goes above and beyond for them. I would happily recommend his services.
Mike was very attentive to preferences and was very willing to work within my tight timeline despite his busy schedule. I’d highly recommend his services to anyone looking to buy or sell in the lower mainland and look forward to working with him again in the future!
We worked with Mike to purchase our first apartment in Vancouver. He was absolutely amazing through out the whole process, and really took the time to understand us on a personal level to ensure we were buying a place that we would be happy in for years to come. It has been almost 3 years since then, and we are still over the moon with our place. I have recommended Mike to everyone that will listen. We will definitely be working with him for any future purchases as well. Thank you Mike! We could not have asked for a better experience.
Mike is honestly the best realtor! We had such a great experience working with him to purchase our first condo, and then subsequently sell it. His organization and attention to detail is second to none, and he knows everyone in the business (the best home inspector, mortgage broker, etc.). Highly recommend :)
Working with Mike was a pleasure. He has deep knowledge of the Vancouver market and extensive connections to other service providers to help his clients through the homebuying process. Thank you Mike!
Mike was the consummate professional throughout our entire home buying experience. Thoughtful and insightful, he struck a perfect balance of providing guidance whilst allowing us to find the right fit on the market.
Can’t recommend Mike enough and will absolutely work with him again when the time comes to dip back into the market!
We had a wonderful experience working with Mike. As a couple from the UK, this was our first property purchase in Canada. Mike was patient, knowledgable, extremely thorough and acted with integrity throughout the process. He helped us navigate a hot market, gave us sound advice, and importantly, never used any pushy sales tactics. His support and help didn't end once we'd closed either - Mike has been constantly on hand for questions, and has always been highly responsive to our needs. You really can't go wrong. We ended up in a dream home with our new baby and couldn't be happier.
Thank you Mike - we will no doubt work with you again in the future!
Mike provided 5 star service. He is incredibly professional, knowledgeable and patient and made the whole process from showing my townhouse to the closing of the deal seamless. If you want a stress free experience I highly recommend Mike!
Mike was excellent: he was responsive, patient and helpful with us as new home-buyers, he struck a great balance between enthusiasm and realism, and went above and beyond. Would happily recommend to all my friends and family!
Mike was an absolute pleasure to work with. He made process of selling my condo easier than 123. Even when purchasing the place 3 years ago Mike quickly understood exactly what I wanted from a place of residence. I feel like his attention to detail made me incredibly confident/comfortable to leave it up to him. Mike is the man! Could not recommend him more!
If you are looking to purchase real estate in the Vancouver area or exploring this option, Mike is your go-to guy. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable, but he is very easy to work with! I work in the industry and not only use Mike as my personal realtor, but I also refer many of my clients to him. I know from experience that he always goes above and beyond for his clients! Every referral I have sent his way has had nothing but great things to say!
Writing this review from the comfort of our beautiful new home!! That's all thanks to Mike. We initially connected with Mike on a recommendation from our mortgage broker. Right from the beginning, Mike was well prepared, punctual, and easy going. Mike took the time to understand our goals in finding a home and gave useful feedback to help us fine tune expectations.
During the search process, Mike was very good about scheduling showings. As soon as we said we were interested, he was able to set up the viewing quickly. He provided tons of information about each place and often had historical information about complexes because he worked other clients who had purchased there which was helpful in making a decision.
The home we ultimately purchased was forwarded on by Mike about 10 minutes after it was listed. Thanks to his effort to understand our needs, he knew it was a place we would love. And of course, we did! The thing that impressed us the most (and is the most important part of the process) was how Mike helped us navigate the offer and contract process. We ended up in a multiple offer situation and were accepted thanks to Mike's guidance.
From the initial offering to closing, things couldn't have been easier. Because Mike knows so many good people (mortgage brokers, lawyers, inspectors, etc.) things went extremely efficiently and without any hassle. So after only 4 weeks from initial offer to sitting in our new living room, Mike made our dream of home ownership come true and we couldn't be more thankful!
Bottom line: If you want a no-stress, knowledgeable, and professional agent to help you find your dream home, Mike's your guy.
Excellent service and highly professional. Have worked with Mike on multiple occasions, and I would highly recommend him to anyone.
