Rie was recommended to me by a friend and I was very fortunate to have had her represent me in the sale of my father's home.
Rie was always available to answer any questions and concerns I had and went above and beyond the call of duty to assist me with any issues I had relating to the sale. She kept me fully apprised during the course of the sale and was able to bring it to a successful completion in a very short period of time.
I would highly recommend Rie to anyone either selling or buying a home.
Rie has a wonderful sense of humor and that helped relieve the anxiety during the course of the sale.
I met Rie through the recommendation of Carol. I'm really so thankful to her, my house was only listed for 5 days and the offer was just the right timing and it was sold so quick. She help me and gave me lots of pointers so the house will not stay longer on the market.She is very thorough and in contact with me all the time. I will surely recommend her to my all my friends. Keep up the good work. I will pray that you and your team would be able to help more clients sold their houses.God bless. Thank you so much.
Thanks to Rie we were able to find the unique and private house we were looking for!
Since we were first time home buyers, we had many questions, she was very patient with us and answered our numerous questions. We never felt pressured or hurried by Rie, she allowed us to take our time and to change our minds a thousand times (it felt like that many anyway). She helped us find and put an offer on our dream house and she assisted us to get the house well within our price range!
Thank you Rie, for making this experience better then we could have imagined!

Much thanks to Rie for her help with my house hunt! I was on a very tight deadline to find, buy and settle on a house and she helped me through all the steps. Being out of town, Rie took care of everything including finding me a lawyer and a house inspector. I would highly recommend Rie to all my friends and family.
I am still in awe how this all happened so fast. I certainly did not expect such results. I will forever and ever recommend you as a realtor and thank you so much! You two make a great team. Thanks Rie for helping make my life so much easier!!
Thank you so much Rie. I am so grateful for all that you have done and am very glad that I chose you!
First of all, I will definitely recommend Rie ANYTIME! Going the extra mile, excellent professional real estate service; these are just the couple of words to describe of what our experience was like when we had her as our real estate agent. I can't possibly list 'em all in here and so, I've only chosen the most obvious and important of all!
*Going the extra mile: First day of house hunting, lo and behold, our SUV broke down (fuel pump problems...) right on the intersection of a street! I had to push the truck to the side of the street and Rie was there to help me. The best part of it all was, she let us in her car, with our 5 year old son and his car seat and continued on with the house hunting. Talk about going the extra mile!!! :)
*Professional Real Estate service: We had a set amount of budget for our 1st place and she definitely delivered. We liked 1 property in particular, asked her to prepare the necessary paper work and voila!, we got the house after a couple of offer/s & counter offers. In short, it was a seamless transaction and without Rie's guidance, it probably would have been a difficult process for us as a first time home buyer. Talk about losing our Property virginity! ;)
In closing, as I mentioned before, going the extra mile will be an understatement when describing Ms. Zhou's commitment to her clients. I/We are proof of that!
2 thumbs UP, way, way UP!!!

I would highly recommend Rie as a realtor for buying or selling your property. She spent endless hours taking our family around to see houses that she thought would be perfect for us. She was always available and always had time for us. When it came to listing our house, she was the first person to roll up her sleeves and pitched right in with us to get it sellable. I have recommended Rie to several people and she has done an amazing job for them as well. Her dedication and commitment is outstanding!
Thanks for doing such an amazing job for us!

Crystal and I would like to thank you for the countless hours you took to sell our house and the effort you put in to help find our dream home. We certainly appreciated all of the small things you did, from stopping by to help do last minute cleanings for showings to the advice you gave on small weekend projects that would make our house more appealing to purchasers. In a buyers market we have no doubt that these things allowed us to sell for top dollar. Your professionalism and knowledge were also key to negotiating the purchase of our new home and your attentional to detail saved us signficant dollars in avoided taxes! You were great under the timelines imposed by our sale and you worked well with the other realtors to ensure we could close our purchase with all the extras complete so we could move in without missing a beat. Saying thank you does not begin to describe how greatful we are for everything you did for us!!!
All the best to you and your family,
Blake Collins and Crystal Lilly
Thank you Rie for selling our home in just 5 days for over the asking price! We are so happy that we chose you as our agent!
Ron and I really appreciated your experience and understanding of today's real estate market as well exhaustive knowledge of pricing in our neighbourhood. You did such a great job of preparing our home for sale! From working with your professional stager to familiarizing yourself with every aspect of our home, you thoroughly had our home ready to sell quickly! In addition, your eye-catching photographs captured the full beauty of our rooms as well as the magnificent views from our windows.
Thank you for your endless hours of showing our home to other agents as well as being available for every showing to potential buyers. You went the extra mile by arriving early for showings, making sure that our home looked as spotless and attractive as possible. Although we were travelling while our home was listed, we felt very comfortable leaving our home in your hands. You are obviously very passionate about your work and are dedicated to your client's goals.
It is without hesitation that we would recommend you to our family and friends. Thank you again for all your hard work!
Irene and Ron Simkus
Thank you so much for all your help in selling our home. Your competence, communication, and obvious commitment to helping us make this sale made a huge difference to us. I would highly recommend you to anyone interested in selling their home.
Thank you again,
Dan and Olive
We would like to thank Rie for her hard work on the quick and painless sale of our home (it may have been painful for her, but she made it painless for us). She is honest, dedicated, and reliable. There is no doubt that she knows what she is doing. She was constantly out and about, ensuring people were aware of our home.
She maintained excellent contact with us, and kept us up to date. We also received the price we had hoped for which was another bonus. We would recommend Rie without hesitation to anyone whom is considering, or will be, selling or buying.
Thank you Rie for a pleasant experience, your hard work has definitely been appreciated. Rie, if you and your family are to head out our way, let James know that the foosball table is set up, and Joe's ready for some competition (other then myself).
Sincere thanks and best wishes,
Joe and Annika Dodyk
We moved to Kamloops from England and thanks to Rie's expert help we bought our home without even seeing it! Rie was recommended to us by a friend we had made in Kamloops, and immediately she went out on a limb to help us find not just a house but a home we could live in for years to come.
She went to prospective homes with a video camera and took as many images as she could and then emailed them to us in England so we could get an idea of the house. She was always very honest with her views and advised us about what work may need doing in the next few years.
When we found the home we wanted she put extra work in to complete the sale for us, which went through in 20 days and completed while we were in Immigration at Vancouver airport!
When we first went into the house we were nervous about whether it would meet our expectations, but needn't have worried, as it was just perfect! We are very happy with our home, and believe without Rie putting in a little extra something we wouldn't have been so lucky!
We have recommended Rie to friends and will continue to do so. A realtor who can get to know their clients well enough to choose their perfect home for them is one to be recommended!

We met James and Rie at an open house they were showing 4 years ago. At this time we were looking for our starter home with interests in making a wise investment. We were overwhelmed by the huge purchase we would be making and were unsure on who to trust our future too.
James warm character and genuine interest in meeting our needs complemented his many attributes. James and Rie helped us purchase our first home with ease using their experience and timely knowledge of market trends to ensure we purchased a house that would be of value to us in the future.
Our first home purchase went smoothly and easily and James’ anticipated increase in property value came true. One year later we purchased an investment property through the Zhou Team and had the same exemplary service. James’ sound advice, Rie’s enthusiastic personality and their serving nature showed us once again that we were working with leaders in the real e state industry.
Recently, we have purchased our third property from James and Rie, which has allowed us to move out of our first home and sell it for a substantial profit. As our confidence in the Zhou Team continues to grow so does our friendship (and bank account for that matter). James and Rie’s continual effort in meeting our needs has surpassed our service expectations that we believe a realtor should provide.
James and Rie’s teamwork has ensured the security of my families’ future today.
I can’t wait for our next purchase!
