Open For Business Evenings and Weekends
In our busy, modern world many buyers are requesting to view properties on evenings and weekends. I am able to take advantage of these opportunities with my 24/7 work ethic. I personally show your home using my honed skill sets acquired from years of experience to ensure your home is properly represented and stands ours from the competition. I believe personalized showings are a necessity to highlight your homes unique features, thought out finishing, design and style.
4K UHD & HD Cinematic Video Tour
DYNAMIC TRUE VIDEO TOURS with many of today’s buyers coming from across the globe, I often see buyer’s sending a family member or representative to preview a home on their behalf. My Dynamic True Video Tours allow overseas buyers to see and connect with your home from anywhere in the world, giving your listing the exposure it deserves.
HIGH DEFINITION PHOTOGRAPHY
HIGH DEFINITION PHOTOGRAPHY Working with the very best in professional real estate photography, my photos stand out from the competition.
PROFESSIONAL FLOOR PLANS
Floor Plans and accurate measurements are a necessity when marketing in today’s modern marketplace. Buyers are more sophisticated than ever before and they expect the utmost accuracy when considering overall square footage and room sizes. Your home will have onsite measurements and a computerized floor plan to accurately showcase your listings layout and flow.
HIGH GLOSS FEATURE SHEETS
Knowing my clients have invested a significant amount of time, effort and money into making their home perfect, I believe that the hard work and attention to detail should not end there. Once listed, your home will receive professional, quality brochures containing photos, the floor plan and detailed information about your home that buyers can take with them and review later. I personally oversee the design and production of your homes feature sheets to ensure the best photos are used and the most notable details mentioned.
HIGH DEFINITION AERIAL & VIDEO PHOTOGRAPHY
Aerial or what I call “Drone” footage is a necessity to capture your homes beauty, views and profile.

INTERNATIONAL LUXURY PORTFOLIO
Through our partnership with Luxury Portfolio International and these websites, we reach international luxury buyers online. This program is exclusive to Macdonald Realty
amongst a select few Canadian Brokerages.
When you list your luxury property with us, your property will be advertised on each of the following websites offering your listing high end exposure to a wide spectrum of audiences around the globe.
Canadian Real Estate Investment Centre
In 2015, Macdonald Realty opened an office in Shanghai at the junction of the Jing’an and Xu’hui district. With increasing demand in China for foreign investment opportunities abroad, the Canadian Real Estate Investment Centre gives Chinese buyers access to Canadian properties and Canadian sellers access to Chinese investors. The investment centre offers investors a ‘one-stop-shop’ for all their real estate needs in Canada. When you list your property with us, your home will be highlighted as a featured property in our Shanghai office.
Your Property Advertised behind the Great Firewall
Macdonald Realty is the first and only Canada-focused real estate website behind the Great Firewall. With this distinct marketing advantage, my clients are uniquely positioned giving them an edge over the rest of the market.macrealty.cn
Title Review By Lawyer
By using Terra Firma Title Review and having a “lawyer on retainer”, I provide my clients with a land title review along with an easy to read legal opinion from one of B.C’s leading real estate firms. Every non financial charge on title is reviewed and explained in plain words.
Many properties have right of ways, easements, restrictive covenants, building schemes and subdivision plan charges on title. These charges can be very hard to understand, often leaving the buyer confused. I perform a title review on each property, for each transaction. When my listings hit the market, a full title review, legal opinion and explanation in plain words is available for buyers consideration. This eliminates any title questions a buyer may have, leaving the buyer informed and confident in your property.
Alternatively, when representing buyers a title review gives my buyer true peace of mind and a complete understanding of the property they are purchasing.
Local Print Advertising
Exclusive to Macdonald Realty, your property will be featured in The Vancouver Sun’s prominent Saturday ‘BusinessBC’ section. These colour adds are prime exposure on the back of the section to 482,000 readers.
Other local newspaper advertising opportunities available including the Real Estate Weekly, community newspapers, the Real Estate Book and local Chinese newspapers like Ming Pao or Sing Tao.
Professionally Staging Your Home
When you put your home on the market, it becomes a product.
Your home needs to make a great first impression and be "appeal ready" to look its very best at "show time." It needs to be transformed from a home you live in to a listing you want to sell so it can out-shine the competition and make buyers want to make an offer. I offer my clients the very best home staging consultation service.
Matterport True VR Tour
This technology is designed to allow buyers, to view your listing online as a virtual open house with a virtual reality experience at any time, from any where in the world. Using the same technology behind Google “Street View”, the 3D scan is compatible with any mobile device and desktop. You can connect your mobile phone, tablet or desktop to your Google or Samsung goggles and walk through the home in 3D. A real experience for real estate.
Luxury Homes Collection Magazine
Macdonald Realty publishes the Luxury Homes Collection Magazine. A quarterly publication which features B.C.’s finest homes listed within the company to highlight exceptional properties in the program. The magazine is distributed both locally and internationally to expose our listings to a spectrum of audiences.
