Everything starts with a phone call. Please reach out today and let's have a great conversation.
Jon Lumer is a truly amazing real estate agent. His personal qualities of honesty, warmth, sincerity and a genuine interest in people are combined with great professionalism, knowledge and a very strong work ethic to make him outstanding at his job and a real pleasure to work with. From the first time that he arrived at our home for the initial assessment to the final meeting concluding the sale, we felt that we had made a real friend as well as having an astute, experienced person at our side guiding us through the entire process and making what could have been a stressful situation pretty much painless and very positive. Jon was attentive to every detail and we loved that he took such special care with the description of our “cottage” and understanding the history of our 27 years there. We highly recommend Jon without any reservation and know that he will give the same above and beyond service to anyone lucky enough to work with him. - Marquita Lester
Reply: Thank you so much, Marquita and Charles. These words mean a lot to me and I feel so fortunate you entrusted me with this responsibility and grateful for the time we spent together. Wishing you all the best!
Our experience with Jon was amazing! He is a pleasure to work with. Having a big dog and moving from outside of the city, we were expecting everything to be so much more complicated than it was thanks to Jon! He helped us narrow down our options always considering our necessities and restrictions. He is very professional and gave us great opinions on the places that we saw. We had limited time in the city and he was very quick to act when scheduling viewings of properties that we were interested in. He was very good communicating with us, always answered our questions promptly and explained to us in detail. Jon is very friendly and kind, we couldn’t have asked for a better state agent in the rapidly changing Vancouver market! - Diana Valencia
As first time home buyers, Jon did an excellent job of guiding us through this very complex experience. His website is very easy to use and helpful for novices like us to get a feel for the market without having to spend tons of time on various websites. He explained everything to us in simple terms so we could understand and make more informed decisions. Jon was always available by call or email/text when we had questions and was very on top of research & scheduling viewings when we were busy with our personal lives. He looked for things during viewings and in condo documents that we may have missed and advocated for us strongly. For example, we were ready to make an offer on a condo but later Jon found via the depreciation report that the unit could be responsible for up to $65k in assessment fees in the next few years. He really saved us there! When we did find our home he absolutely went above and beyond to ensure we had a smooth move-in process. I came into this experience wary of realtors as everyone has heard less than positive stories before, but Jon brought such a personable and attentive quality to the roll that I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking for a new home! - Annaliese Middelmann
Jon was absolutely incrediable to work with. He was professional, knowledgeable and approachable. He worked alongside us every step of the way and was great with communication. Jon helped us purchase our home and then sell it 4 years later. We would highly recommend Jon and wouldn't hesitate to work with him again in the future. - Neha Huggins
Reply: Thank you, Neha! Wishing you all the best with everything going forward. Sincerely, Jon
This was the first time purchasing a home, and Jon was absolutely amazing. I was slowly looking into buying a place; start talking to a mortgage broker, plan my financial situation, look into what’s out there in the market etc. And then maybe at the end of the year I will get really serious with the search. So I didn’t want to feel rushed to buy a home, as I have had multiple friends who felt they were pressured and rushed throughout the process by their realtors. Jon was recommended by my colleague, and he mentioned Jon is patient, trustworthy with no pressure at all. As I was clueless with property purchasing, I thought Jon would be perfect to talk to. I started viewing properties and I really liked the second property I went view, so upon discussing with Jon we put in an offer and luckily it got accepted. I’ve heard multiple friends going through bidding and not getting the property they liked, so I only put in an offer to get used to the idea of rejection. But I guess everything lined up at a perfect time, so much for “I will seriously look into buying a place at the end of the year” but luckily, it happened in April. And the paper signing and preparation began. Jon was amazingly helpful with the paperwork and document reviews before subject removal. As much as I had to do the document reviewing myself, he emailed me a summary of documents I was given (bylaws, AGM meeting docs, etc) and it helped me so much to educate myself with how things generally work and what to expect. It is a very nerve wrecking process to buy a property but I didn’t feel alone or lost with Jon’s help. I’ve asked multiple questions while I was clueless with everything, and he didn’t make me feel like an idiot. After the subject removal, he drove me to the new place for inspection, he also came to help me take measurements on another day even though it was only about 30 minutes or so. I didn’t really know what I can expect from a realtor, but Jon absolutely tries his best to be there for his clients whenever possible. I have been so happy with Jon that I even recommended him to my sister and brother-in-law, and they have been very happy to have Jon help them with the property hunting. My friends are starting look into buying a property as well so I have been pretty persistent with recommending Jon to them. I really want them to witness what I had gone through with Jon’s assistance, and I have no doubt they would be happy with him, as well. Thank you for all the help Jon ! You’re the best. - Nana Fujino
Reply: Thank you, Nana! Such a thoughtful and considerate review. It has been a genuine pleasure getting to know you through this process and I'm so happy with the result! Very best, Jon
It took us over a year before finding the perfect home, and Jon was very patient throughout the entire process. He was always quick to respond to any questions or concerns, and happy to help at any given moment. He’s a knowledgeable real estate agent, I would be happy to work with him again in the future. Definitely recommend! - Christine
Reply: Thanks, Christine! Hope you are starting to feel settled over there and glad you are in the neighbourhood!
Jon is an absolute gem of a human and all around professional in every sense. I met Jon as an absolute stranger through a pre-sale condo website way back in 2015 and although my partner and I never purchased or sold until 2022 he was with us to answer any and all questions and offer guidance when we did consider selling/buying at various times prior to this year. When we finally made the decision to buy our next home Jon was kind, patient and extremely knowledgable in a market that couldn't be more inconsistent and illogical. Truly a leader in his field. He was always there for a phone call, to walk through comparable properties and help us make the best decision for us on all of our offers. When you choose Jon as your agent you will feel like his only client as he is so attentive and thoughtful. Never once did we feel pressured to offer on something we were uncertain of or to offer a certain price. His services exceeded all expectations and we certainly look forward to working with again in the future! - Emily LeDue
Reply: Damn! That's a good one. Thank you so, so much! I love your new house and I'm so happy for the whole family.
Jon helped me and my husband find a townhome that we absolutely love and couldn't be happier with! Throughout the process, Jon was knowledgeable, always available, and super patient as we searched for a home in this crazy housing market. We felt that he truly cared about helping us find something that we would love and was so accommodating throughout the whole process. We'd highly recommend him! - Lauren Shiu
Jon is an exceptional professional with incredible drive. I was fortunate enough to meet Jon through a colleague at work and he has found the perfect place for me after going through multiple listings together. I would strongly recommend Jon for anyone looking to sell or purchase properties in Greater Vancouver area. - Donghee Kim
This gentleman is the epitome of a professional. He is better than anyone else out there. Truly enjoyed working with him to sell my mom's home. I have no hesitation in recommending him. Truly the consummate professional. - Dr.Aristotle Azad
This was the third time that we worked with Jon. He sold us our first apartment, and sold it for us when we wanted to upgrade to the place he helped us purchase this year. Jon was always organized and provided in depth informative comparative analysis for each property we were interested in to help with our decisions and to decide on the best strategy. He was always honest and listened to our thoughts without pushing us in any direction. He was a great communicator and we felt comfortable and informed every step of the way. He’s personable, funny, and an all-around great guy. When we found “the place” he worked hard to make sure we got it at a price we felt good about. Jon was amazing till the very end, and left us the sweetest welcome basket to enjoy in our new home. We are excited to work with Jon again for all our real estate needs!! - Emilie Grace & Ryan Silva
Reply: I don't even know what to say. Such kind words. Thank you for taking the time to put this out there. Means a lot! Very best to both of you, Jon
We started our search without pretty much any knowledge about the process, we lucked into Jon who was really helpful and patiently explained the process and what we should do to even start the process of searching for our home. Later he was very helpful when viewing the homes and giving us his honest opinion. I really think he wanted us to find a good home that was right for us and that we would be happy moving in to it. He went through the documents and helped us navigate and understand more about the history of the buildings and what to expect or where to avoid. Overall a really good person to work with, super accessible and always ready to answer all the questions we had. We also appreciate his generosity donating part of his commission on the sale to a charity. - Gabriel and Mariana
Reply: Thank you both for taking the time to post this! It was a tremendous pleasure helping you with the purchase and I'm really happy that you found such a great place. Very best, Jon
This would be the 3rd time my wife and I have worked with Jon, and this is for good reason as Jon has been an absolutely wonderful person to have as a resource, in this insane Vancouver real estate market. Related to our most recent purchase, he was very reliable and went above and beyond to insure we were well informed and had comfort moving forward. We have always found him to be honest and very knowledgeable and we trust his insights. We would definitely recommend Jon, if you are in the market to find a Realtor!! - Sarb Attwal
Reply: Thanks for these kind words! I really do appreciate it. Best to the whole family, Jon
Purchased a 2-bed Condo using Jon as my Realtor and I would recommend him to any buyer or seller - his knowledge of the market and professionalism is unmatched. Jon will also go above and beyond to make sure your real estate experience goes smoothly! - Marcus Piehl
Reply: Really kind, Marcus! I am so happy that you found the right place. Very best, Jon
Jon has been an invaluable real estate agent since I met him a few years ago. Initially I was planning on purchasing a 2nd property in Vancouver and was more than impressed with the detailed analysis provided by Jon for each inquiry I had. I then decided to move to Vancouver Island and bought a house. I decided to sell my condo in Vancouver as it requires a full envelope repair in the next 2 to 3 years which made it more challenging to sell for the price we wanted. Jon went above and beyond and was able to find a buyer in short order at a price above our expectations. I highly recommend Jon for either buying or selling. - Jason Baybutt
Reply: Thank you, my friend! Anybody who can take my sarcasm in stride the way you do is necessarily a hero of mine. Looking forward to our next beer.
Jon helped me buy my first home and I'm so thankful that he did. He toured numerous properties with me and did a great job of setting my expectations early on so I knew what I would have to do to get into a property that I was really happy with. - Gabrielle Dickert
Jon is an amazing realtor and we were so thankful to have him guiding us through the daunting process of buying our first home. We were searching in a crazy time and what we loved so much about working with him was that he was always very realistic and honest. We felt that all our questions were answered in the most helpful way possible, with a deep understanding of the Vancouver market and the humility to push us to form our own opinions. We felt that Jon cared a lot about helping us find a great home, and really appreciated his telling us when he didn't think something was good enough for us. All in all he made the process fun and exciting, when it could have been quite stressful, and we valued his help so much. It was so nice to have someone we could have absolute trust in, and we wouldn't have found this home we love so much without him. We would strongly encourage you to work with Jon, he's the best. - Skye Ruttle and Em Halberstadt
Reply: Geez, this is so nice! Thank you both immensely for what you've written here. As the weather turns cold, I am thinking of you and your pup warm and cozy in that fine home of yours. Very grateful to have been a part of the process that got you there.
Jon was a true pleasure to work with on the purchase of our first home. His patience was especially appreciated, as we had begun our search two years prior to finally finding the home we bought. Jon's ability to provide an impartial, unbiased, and objective perspective on the homes we viewed was appreciated. On offer day Jon was excellent at making the dialogue as smooth and stress-free as possible. We would highly recommend and we look forward to working with Jon again soon! - Michael S. - Michael
Reply: Michael, it was so nice working with you and Brenna and I just adore the home you found for yourselves. Definitely thinking of you both every time I pass by and can't wait to see what you do with the place. Many thanks for your kind words. Very best, Jon
The process of buying with Jon was a great experience - he is professional, on top of things and very resourceful. This is my second time buying through Jon and in both cases the experience was consistent. He genuinely wanted to find the place that was right for me and we got there. I will definitely use Jon's services again in the future! - David Robinson
Reply: Thanks so very much for these kind words, Dave. It was truly a pleasure helping you with this process and I'm honoured that you would choose me to assist. You've really landed a beautiful property. Enjoy!
Jon was a pleasure to work with on the sale of my condo this year! He made the whole process convenient and as effortless as could be for me. He was professional and knowledgeable. I was kept informed through out and he took the time to meet and discuss the sale in detail on several occasions. Jon is not only a great resource with extensive knowledge on the local market but very hard working and wonderful to work with. I highly recommend him to anybody looking to buy or sell. - A. Gara
Fantastic real estate agent with lots of knowledge of the Vancouver area and he provides an amazing customer experience. He also gives lots of helpful advice in order to get the transaction completed as quickly as possible. Highly recommended! - Vishal
Reply: Vishal my friend, thank you for your kind words. Such a pleasure to work with you and wishing you and Stacey all the best in your new home.
I had the opportunity to work with Jon Lumer on the buy side in 2017 and on the sell side in 2021. I would definitely recommend his services as he is very efficient, professional, makes things happen quickly, brings a wealth of valuable insights, knows great people to assist where needed and his marketing on the sell side was top notch. I will definitely stay in contact with Jon Lumer and I look forward to working with him again. - J. Street
Jon was extremely professional, helpful and seemed genuinely keen to help me find a home instead of just wanting to close a sale (oddly rare for the Vancouver market)! I would recommend him to anyone making the leap from renting to owning a home in BC. - Chitra
Reply: This is so kind, Chitra. Thank you and congrats again!
From the moment we connected with Jon we knew we were in good hands. As first time buyers he took the time to answer all our (many, many) questions and helped us keep our heads cool in this red hot market. His responsiveness is what secured our deal - he was lightning fast in scheduling our viewing and that gave us the edge over other buyers. We had some initial issues with our mortgage and here again Jon was quick to offer pointers and refer us to the right people. Importantly we felt that Jon understood our needs and treated us as individual buyers - which led us to buying the perfect place for us. I have already recommended him to friends. - Jean-Michel Oblette
I cannot recommend Jon enough! He was absolutely fantastic and fully committed to helping us find our new home. Thank you so much for all of your help Jon. It was invaluable! - Vicky Jatana
Jon was amazing throughout the viewing, offering, and buying process. We always felt comfortable asking him questions and approaching him with requests. He found something that met my needs while also aligning with my family’s. He was incredibly flexible and communicative. - fatima gulamhusein
Reply: Thank you, Fatima!
Jon is by far the best real state agent one can work with, or at least the best I've had in Canada. He is very honest and easygoing, easy to talk to and he will be a good advisor when it comes to land important decisions. Strongly recommended. - Juanita Camargo
Reply: Thank you so much, Juanita!
Jon demonstrated a thoughtful and caring demeanour throughout the process of listing, marketing and ultimately selling our home of 25 years. We definitely benefited from his extensive knowledge and experience, as he worked to explore different options for us with both developers and the consumer market. Getting 9 offers and selling well above asking on the first day was great, but it was Jon’s calm and reassuring manner that made it all extra easy - and enjoyable. Jon deserves every one of the stars in our rating of his services. - Brendan Kelly
It doesn't get any more nerve-wracking than buying your first apartment but Jon's services were absolutely stellar. Jon has been there for us every step of the way and he's helped us answering all of our questions and doubts. Jon was always sincere and honest with us and he was able to make this stressful process a very smooth one. We're lucky to have found him as our agent and would definitely recommend his services! - Rodrigo Garcia-Rojas
Buying and selling does not get much easier with Jon. Jon works very hard to get the right people inside your door. His professionalism and optimism made this experience exciting and seamless. I would highly recommend Jon for anyone looking to buy or sell their home. - Ryan Silva
Reply: You da man, man.
If you're looking for 5 star EXPERIENCE. This is your real estate professional! Jon is not a pressure sales guy. Jon is prompt, responsive and knowledgeable. Even if you're not buying a home, or selling a home. It's great to have a consultation with him! - Tony P
Reply: Very much appreciated!
Jon was great to work with and I will not hesitate to work with him again in the future! He gives prompt replies and takes pride in his work. Very knowledgeable and will get you answers to questions you didn’t even know that had. Highly recommended, you won’t regret it. - Melanie
Reply: Thanks, Mel!
Highly recommend Jon as a realtor. He worked so hard to help us sell our property during this special time. We are super happy and satisfied working with him. He is patient and passionate. He managed to coordinate with our tenant to allow as many showing as possible. He got us an offer way faster than we expected. Definitely we will choose to work with him. - Angela
Reply: Thank you so much!
Jon is a great realtor who is honest, genuine and very knowledgeable. He is diligent, detail oriented and has an amazing combination of experience and education that is a great asset. He always makes himself available and is a great communicator. It was truly pleasure to work with Jon and I'd love to work with him for all my future real estate dealings. - Michael Schwalb
Reply: Thanks, Mike!
We were impressed right from the start by Jon's professionalism and his concern for his clients' interests. Jon was extraordinarily helpful and effective in assisting our search for a property that matched our criteria, especially considering that we were not able to view any of the potential properties in person. He kept us fully informed of any issue that we should be aware of. The fact that we bought the property sight unseen should speak volumes about his trustworthiness and the excellent support that he provides. We STRONGLY recommend Jon's service to any potential buyers and sellers. - Robin Yates & Grace Fong
Reply: Thank you so much!
Jon was super professional. He was also very accessible and able to work around a difficult schedule. Our purchase was fast, but we felt comfortable the whole time because of the support we received from Jon. He knew the questions to ask to ensure we had a safe buying experience. We are so happy with our new home. We highly recommend Jon! - Christina Addington
Reply: Thank you, Christina!
Jon was a pleasure to work with! He's very knowledgeable and quick to respond to any inquiries we had. We felt very supported in finding our first home, and he made the otherwise stressful experience a breeze. We would absolutely recommend him! - Michelle Simard
Jon has helped me purchase and sell a couple properties and the services provided are beyond exceptional. I believe his level of knowledge and professionalism is unparalleled to any other agents I’ve worked with and talked to. I’ve never felt any pressure to buy or sell and have always been confident Jon is looking out for our best interest. Jon is also one of the best communicators in the business. Whether it’s returning a phone call, text message, or email, you can be assured it’s timely and efficient. I will not hesitate to recommend Jon as a realtor and I’m looking forward to working him again soon. - Jonathan Kou
Reply: Much love, Jon.
This will be the third property transaction Jon has assisted me with and it's a testament to his professionalism, knowledge, and ability to get the job done that I have continually reached out to him to be my agent again and again. I've dealt with different brokers in the past, but in my opinion Jon is a cut above, particularly when it comes to negotiation. Not only is he knowledgeable, but his negotiation skills and ability to deal with sometimes challenging situations remains top-notch in my experience. I would strongly recommend Jon to anyone looking to buy, sell, or just wanting to see what is out there. With Jon, there's never any pressure; he's always there to help no matter what your need is. - Sean Thompson
Reply: It's hard to know what to say in response to words like these. I suppose THANK YOU! is a good start, though far from enough. This really is most appreciated, Sean.
I have worked with Jon for the past 4 years where I have bought and sold condos. Jon knows the Vancouver, New West, and Surrey areas very well and his guidance come based on solid research, trends, marketing and general know how of the lower mainland real estate environment. He is a professional every step of the way through the buying and selling process. He has been a great resource as I continue to build out a real estate portfolio. I would definitely recommend Jon as I will continue to work with him. - Faroon
Reply: Thank you for these kind words, Faroon. Has always been and will continue to be a pleasure to help in any way I can.
I have decided to go with Jon for the sale of my condo after meeting and researching other agents because he was truly the most helpful and genuine person I met. He was %100 with me every step of the way during the prep and sale of the condo giving great advice and info backed with meticulous research he did. It was a very smooth sale thanks to him. A true professional and I would not hesitate a second to recommend him. - Ali Tezel
Reply: *Blushing* You're the best, Ali. Thank you for this.
I highly recommend Jon. He is really knowledgable, responsive and I felt well represented. He is authentic, reasonable and gave good advice. I would use him again for any transaction and highly recommend working with him. - Jessica Veaudry
Reply: My sincere thanks for this generous testimonial, madam. I am very glad to have been of service.

This was our first time buying a property and Jon’s knowledge of the Vancouver real estate market was invaluable. He was responsive, professional and really understood what we were looking for. I’d happily recommend him to anyone. - Justina Driedger
Jon was extremely professional and helpful in our first purchase. Real Estate agents are providing a service and given new technology that is coming out, this service is constantly changing. I found despite the wealth of information online for finding places, Jon went above and beyond to help in our purchase. It was a pleasant experience and I would definitely recommend Jon to anyone. - Nate Webber
Couldn't have asked for a better realtor-experience. His previous career as a lawyer has obviously prepared him for the turbulent world of Vancouver real estate. Jon was very effective in managing our expectations, and consistently provided advice that demonstrated expert-knowledge of the local real estate scene. This was most apparent when dealing with other realtors, who often provided incomplete details regarding important aspects of potential strata purchases (e.g., local bylaw applications, active liens, etc.). Jon was quick to highlight missing information and ensure it was provided by the sellers' realtor. I'd highly recommend Jon to anyone and am more than satisfied with the work he did for us. Thanks Jon! - Jesse John
Jon was great. As a first time homebuyer, I had a lot of questions and Jon had all the answers. Jon always made sure he was available at my convenience and went out of his way to make sure I had all the information I needed. While looking at properties Jon also really helped me to get a good sense of what I was looking at and discussed everything with in such a way that helped me make informed decisions. Jon never ever made me feel like he was pushing for me to make a purchase. In fact, he was great at pointing out causes of concern and consideration in the properties I viewed. It was very apparent that Jon's first priority was my satisfaction. - Joe W
Awesome experience with Jon for our very first home. He was easy to work with and he was always there for us whenever we had question (like a lot of questions!) - Jihyun James
Jon was a great resource for us when buying our first home. He was extremely knowledgeable and responsive when we needed him. His no pressure approach and friendly demeanor made an often stressful experience a fun and rewarding one. Truly a great resource when making one of the biggest purchases of your life! Thanks Jon! - Tudor Hofnar
Jon was the perfect agent for us as I am very detail-oriented and had many/frequent questions for him. Jon patiently and systematically responded to every question and his communication was always very prompt - even if we reached out after office hours. This was our first property in Canada; Jon's knowledge and skills were crucial in securing the deal for us. We were under time constraints and had to finish the transaction while away from Canada. Thanks to Jon being with us every step of the way, despite the time difference, we were able to successfully make the purchase. We often asked him questions that did not relate to his role, but he never hesitated to answer all our queries. He also showed great honesty throughout the process. At no time did we feel that Jon was trying to suggest anything to us to serve his own interest. We felt that Jon really went over and above his responsibilities as a real estate agent. We really enjoyed working with him and would, without hesitation, use his services again. - Beijinger Kaders
Excellent market knowledge and advice from Jon. He definitely goes above and beyond for his clients. He's my go to guy for all things real estate! - Vishal
Jon is a great professional .He understands very well his clients requirements .We worked with him for almost 2 years to find a house but he never pushed us .He is patience is commendable.I picked him off the internet but now we have a great relationship with him .I would go with Jon for the next deal if happened . - Masud Rana
