"My husband and I could not have asked for a better experience buying our first home with Simon. He was patient, responsive, and really listened to our concerns as we searched for the perfect place within our budget. We especially appreciated Simon's vast experience in the Point Grey area, knowledge about the considerations for different types of buildings, and calm and kind demeanour throughout the process. We are thrilled with our new home and could not have done it without Simon's help! "
"Thanks God for Simon who was so patient to listen to our story to understand our needs, endorse our philosophy to action with us and for us in a timely manner, share his expertise to provide us a professional analysis of all options and recommend the best option. His amazing strategy of negotiation to get us the best deal greatly impressed me! Simon made me feel like I didn’t just have a realtor, but a “dad” to care about what I care about and look out for me in my home searching journey! Thanks so much, daddy Simon!! We love you!"

"Simon has been invaluable in purchasing not just one but two of our homes over the last few years. It's evident that Simon has been truly working for us.
In our first purchase, he followed our pace patiently and was always ready to make a move whenever we felt comfortable. This was very important to us as new buyers because it took us a very long time to be mentally prepared and to secure our first home. His advice and patience were very invaluable in guiding us through the intricate real estate landscape. The second time, we thought the purchase process would be smoother but it turned out to be much more stressful and complicated. Though, this was where Simon's experience and expertise really shone. As new issues emerged throughout the purchase, from oil tank concerns to encroachment issues, Simon helped us strategically resolve them one after another. Without Simon, we could easily find ourselves burdened with tens of thousands dollars of additional repair costs.
We're truly thankful for Simon's dedication to our best interests. We highly recommend Simon to anyone who is seeking to buy or sell a home!"
Jake & Lavonne
"Simon assisted me a number of years ago with the purchase of two condos and I was very fortunate to reconnect with him for the purchase of a condo in the West end in the Spring of 2023. Simon's in-depth experience, knowledge and professionalism made the experience seamless, easy and stress free. I highly recommend Simon for any real estate transaction or advice -- a real pleasure working with him."
"Simon helped me and my wife Jenny sell our Vancouver home and he truly could not have done a better job. He was knowledgeable, professional, trustworthy and always available if we had questions or concerns. The fact that we were able to move across the country to have our first child during the sale process shows the level of confidence we had in Simon as well as the incredible amount of time and energy he put into finding us a buyer. I can't recommend him highly enough!"
Jenny & Nathan
"Our family has sold three houses and purchased one with Simon, and found his acumen, strategic approach and advice to be super helpful on each of these transactions. We were able to sell our homes relatively quickly, by being realistic with respect to pricing, and by preparing each to showcase their highlights and features. He helped us buy a home that we really wanted, by being thoughtful and timely in our bidding.
Simon is friendly to work with and knowledgeable with respect to counselling offers. Moreover, he has a ‘golden rolodex’ of partners to help with the process … whether staging, painting, or otherwise, he can rally talented professionals to help you sell, and secures the advice and information you need when buying.
Simon is great at the real estate game, and we look forward to working with him again."
Jen and Jon Buchwald
"I had no idea quite how much work went into the process of buying a home. As a first time buyer, I will forever be grateful I had Simon in my corner. My purchase was complicated: time-sensitive due to pre-approved financing, involved my parents as co-signers and stakeholders, and working in a red-hot market with many bidding wars. His expertise, hard work, dedication, good humour, and persistence made a process that would have been unbearably confusing, exhausting, and stressful into one that was smooth and successful ."
"I have known Simon for many years and he has guided us through the sale of three homes and purchase of two. I have the highest regard for his professionalism, knowledge and judgement. His understanding of the housing market in Vancouver is remarkable and he is able to translate this into practical, timely and realistic decisions and advice about real estate choices and transactions. My wife and I have been totally satisfied with his services. His care, attention to detail and customer service are absolutely top class. Simon has also acted for several family members all of whom are equally impressed. I have no hesitation in recommending him and would not consider working with anyone else."

"Simon has helped me more than once to buy and sell my residence. His real estate knowledge, advice, common sense and calm demeanour are invaluable assets. He has an uncanny ability to read the market. He offers advice about monetary values, strategies for showing property, but also advice about how to make decisions. Selling and buying a 'home', a place where you will live, can be a very stressful, emotional experience and the decisions you make can change your life. Simon's understanding of the emotional side of moving is truly unique."
– Helen O’Keeffe
"We've done ﬁve transactions with Simon over the last 15 years. We really appreciate his apt read of the market, the utmost integrity in how he does business, and his strong advocacy for his clients. In addition to his kind personable approach, Simon has repeatedly gone above and beyond his function as a Realtor to help us as homeowners and people."
– Kim Morrice and Bryan Robertson
Vancouver is a very competitive real state market and we have worked with Simon for the past 10 years to help us navigate this complex buying and selling environment. Simon has years of experience in the Vancouver context and has ensured we buy into well built, beautiful, and problem free homes. Our experience with him selling our home was totally stress free, he managed every detail for us and we walked away with a better offer than we had hoped for. We always recommend him to our friends and family, we would never consider working with anyone else!

"Simon Myara is a very experienced, knowledgeable and supportive real estate agent. He showed determination in complex situations, patience with this client’s lack of technical knowledge and good humour throughout the time that ended in a sale that was both acceptable to his client and the Board of the Apartment’s Co-op building. Many thanks again for all your hard work."

"Dear Simon, With the successful completion on the sale of our property this week, we would like to thank you for your role as our realtor. Simply put, you exceeded our every expectation of the perfect realtor. When we first spoke in August, you were a calm voice on our sale prospects. You didn't pressure us in the least, but gave us options and suggestions. Your suggestion that we make some significant upgrades to the property reminded us of the renovation nightmares of our previous efforts. You assured us you would guide us in the renovation with trusted trades people, and you delivered. Because these trades respect the value of their relationship with you they delivered with quality and on time, with minimal surprises. You were there for us through the whole process. The final product was fantastic and we're certain made the sale happen quickly and for the top value we were seeking. Throughout you were available to answer our questions and gave us updates on every aspect of the pre-sale and sales process. This really helped us feel 'in the loop' and confident in the decisions. We liked your frank answers to our many questions-no beating around the bush."
