Rod helped us buy (8 years ago) and sell our townhouse (this year). He is low pressure, thoughtful and listened to our needs and wants. Thanks Rod for helping us get what we needed to get us where we wanted to be! - Kelly Scott
Reply: Thanks a lot Kelly, I hope you guys are enjoying the interior.
A very knowledgeable and professional realtor. We used him to buy our first and house as well as several attempts to purchase another home years later. While these attempts have not come to fruition, it is in no way related to Rod. He has looked out for us every step of the way - Derek Suderman
Reply: Thanks Derek, we will get you guys across that finish line sometime soon.
Rod stepped in when I really needed help, as the previous realtor was not working out, and very quickly managed to sell the property. He was very hands on and made the whole transaction painless for me. He kept me informed throughout the entire process and I am forever grateful to him. - Paulina Negrete
Reply: Thank you Paulina, I am glad I was able to help.

Reply: Thanks Don and Jeanne, it was a pleasure to help you out.
Rod is excellent agent I would recommend him to anyone looking to buy/sell. He is very helpful with the process of buying and selling home. He is knowledgeable and easy to work with. I am grateful to have worked with him. - Muna Nedimovich
Reply: Thank you Muna, I hope you are enjoying the townhome!

Reply: Thanks Jan and Anna, it's been great to get to know you guys!
From my first phone call to the final signing appointment with my Notary, I had an excellent experience with my realtor, Rod Friesen and would absolutely recommend his services. This was my first experience with selling a home and Rod walked with me through the entire process. He provided timely, sound advice in terms of determining the appropriate selling price, explained every step of the process and was always available through phone, text or email to respond to my queries. I trusted him completely and he helped me immensely with the emotional process of selling my mother’s home. Whether I was home on Bowen Island, at the house in Rosedale or at my mother’s bedside during her hospital stay, I was easily able to navigate the process and complete steps remotely with Rod’s use of electronic documents and email. I unequivocally recommend Rod as a Realtor. His kind, approachable demeanor, his depth of knowledge in the local area’s real estate market and his experience as a realtor shine brightly. Thank you, Rod. - Loretta O'Brien
Reply: Thank's so much Loretta, I am glad I could help and I hope Mom is enjoying her new place.
Rod bent over backward to help us sell our condo. He got more money than I expected and in a short time frame. He expressed clearly what should be moved or eliminated to stage our unit. We up against a couple of other units in our building at that time. We were the only ones who sold and I believe Rod was a big reason why. - Sue and Richard Hargreaves
Reply: Thanks Sue and Richard, I hope you are enjoying the townhome.
Rod came highly recommended and lived up to the reputation. He was knowledgeable about the market, gave us great advice on how to show our home and responded quickly to all our inquiries. He was also instrumental in us acquiring our dream property and home. It was easy to connect with Rod and I would recommend him as a top notch person and agent. - Angela Rowan
Reply: Thanks Angela, I appreciate the kind words.
Rod was pleasant, respect’ always on time. Things unfolded exactly as he told me they should. I have told many friends & family about my excellent experience using Tod for my realtor. If I ever need a realtor again it would be him hands down. - Linda Sigalet
Reply: Thanks Linda! (PS: I have been called worse than Tod, I am sure it was a autocorrect)
What can we say? We had a unique situation that required some serious stick handling. The buying side was easy but selling our property was going to be very difficult. We interviewed many of the top realtors but decided on Rod because he cared, offered great suggestions and didn't once talk about himself. All the others couldn't wait to tell us how great they were. In the end, we made the right choice. - The Griffiths
