Downtown Vancouver is, like in many cities, a retail and business centre. It’s also home to huge office towers, beautiful parkettes overlooking the water, and the bustling Granville Street Strip, the centre of the City’s nightlife.
By day there’s the hustle and bustle of business, trendy restaurants, and shopping. At night, it comes alive. Its makeup is office towers, commercial spaces, and residential development makes downtown the Centre of the universe as far as Vancouverites and tourists alike are concerned. It’s also a cultural hub, home to Vancouver’s huge public library’s main branch, as well as the renowned Vancouver Art Gallery.
Vancouver’s downtown is host to some of the most valuable real estate in Canada and is sought after by an international clientele. If you’re planning on doing business in downtown Van, you need a real estate agent who is versed in the intricacies of this very particular market.
I’m Ron Parpara. As a Vancouver resident (I live in the adjacent Fairview neighbourhood), and an experienced Realtor (more than a decade, earning myself recognition as one of Vancouver’s top real estate agents, I can offer you the local expertise you need for transactions anywhere on the Lower Mainland, and especially in the city’s core.
When I look at a property in Downtown Vancouver, I don’t just see a bunch of numbers and statistics on a page. I look at each and every transaction that takes place in the core as a step forward for both the buyer and the seller, and for the city as a whole.
I have extensive contacts in the city’s real estate business. I work with Oakwyn Realty, the Lower Mainland’s leading real estate company. We do more business here than anyone else. I’m connected with the right people - able to coordinate all of the moving parts that make a real estate transaction as smooth as possible. I will arrange staging, photography (using one of Vancouver’s premier real estate photography companies), and with your input, develop a comprehensive marketing plan that leverages traditional and new media. If needed, printed collateral material can be designed and distributed, as well as advertising on Facebook, Twitter, and WeChat. To help with international buyers and sellers, I can partner with an agent fluent on Mandarin or Cantonese. If you need a service I don’t provide, I’ll find it for you.
I know the market, and I know the city. I can help you avoid the pitfalls that can befall a buyer in this complex marketplace. Best of all - enlisting an agent to help you with the buying process is absolutely free for you!
I'm in my 13th year as a Realtor® and have acquired an extensive knowledge of the rapidly changing Vancouver market and surrounding area. One thing which is critical is that I will be your main point of contact from start to finish. To find out more, please see my about page.
