Duncan has been my sister’s realtor since 2001 and has helped them buy and sell multiple properties over the years. So when I finally decided to sell my condo, I trusted Duncan to help me through what I imagined was going to be a difficult and stressful process. As someone who practically breaks out in hives when the topic of Vancouver real estate comes up, I was dreading the entire process, especially during Covid. Duncan’s experience and solid knowledge of the market were reassuring. He listened keenly and was honest about what I needed to do to get my place market-ready. Under his direction, I was able to get everything in place and on time for the listing date. One of Duncan’s strengths was his ability to listen and keep me on track while helping me ride out my many freak-outs all the way. After four busy days of back to back showings (with best Covid practices in place), I received multiple offers and ended up getting over the list price. I was over the moon! Duncan delivered everything I had hoped for and more. While some of my good luck was based on timing, it was Duncan’s expertise and extensive network that helped nail it! I highly recommend using Duncan Brown to help you sell (or buy) your Vancouver home. He’s professional, trustworthy, and an all-around great guy! - Suzanne Geba

Excellent service from Duncan, especially as I was at distance from my property during covid conditions. Above and beyond in terms of assistance and professionalism. I was very pleased with the selling price and management of all the documentation. The transaction was made very easy. - Karen Lund
Duncan is a delight to work with. He is professional, knowledgeable and personable. His long term experience in the market makes all the difference providing sound advice on pricing, timing and presentation. In addition, his extensive network means he can recommend excellent ancillary services like staging professionals and cleaning. Duncan’s overall approach, integrity and the rapport he develops with his clients is outstanding and we recommend him without hesitation. - Allan & Anne Smith
I've worked with Duncan since 2002 on a number of housing transactions - all were completed quickly and successfully. Duncan is incredibly knowledgeable about Vancouver neighbourhoods and condo properties and their relative pros and cons. Along with his approachable, "non-salesy" demeanour, this is where I've really appreciated his service. I fully recommend Duncan and have done so on several occasions. Those contacts have also had very positive experiences with him. - Stephanie Zahn
I’ve been with Duncan since 1997 having sold three and bought two places over the years. Each time I have been impressed with his service and how he has continued to evolve to keep up with technology, the latest trends, and most effective strategies. It is always comforting to watch him with other agents to know that he is both respected and liked. The last sale was truly epic and worthy of praise. Not only skillfully negotiating a three way bidding war. But when the winner got cold feet, he got a former building occupant, who was in Mexico at the time, on the phone to answer questions and close the sale. I don’t know anyone who could have either pulled this off or would have gone the extra mile! - Philip Tremblay
We've been working with Duncan since 2007. In that time, we've bought 2 properties and sold 1 with his services. Duncan has really good sense of his clientele. He has extraordinary patience, listens and adapt his suggestions and advice to meet your needs ... not push you into something you don't actually want. Frankly, that's a professional trait that not always in abundance in the competitive Vancouver market. We would recommend Duncan to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, professional, ethical realtor that you can develop a relationship with over multiple transactions.
We have worked with Duncan since 2011 through 3 housing transactions. He is professional, available, responsive, ethical and gives his honest opinion. He is a realtor who works hard for his clients, is not in a rush to "make a sale". He is about finding the right fit for his client needs.
Reply: Correction. My husband and I have worked with Duncan since 2001.
We are in a unique position to recommend Duncan, so if you're questioning the 5-star ratings, don't. We've done two residential sales and one buy through him. It can't work like this all the time, but he generated bidding wars for both our sales. In the first, we had the unique experience of watching 8 agents present offers and represent their clients. It was like 'realtor auditions'. At the end we knew we'd always want Duncan representing us and it reinforced how lucky we were to have selected him. He is very strategic, knowledgeable, professional and responsive in addition to being a pleasure to work with. We have received invaluable advice from him between transactions and referred him to friends who have thanked us. Highly recommended.
Makes a good first impression but after that, it's all downhill. Main character flaw: lazy. He doesn't hustle to find a home for you or go above and beyond. He uses an automated system to send new listings, which is great, but other than tha,t and making appointments, he doesn't really add much value. Not willing to put in offers less than $50K from assessment even when the home list/assessment price is out-of-whack with current reality. Also is away at least months of the year and completely unreachable during this time. You're left to deal with a junior licensed realtor who doesn't know you and whom you've never met before. Brutal.
