Kim Spencer

Dear Mr. Spencer,

I would like to comment on Mr. Erickson, who listed and sold my property in Vancouver. I first met Mr. Erickson about a year ago when he was the listing agent for another condo in our Strata. I was very impressed with him during that sales process, so I obtained his service when I listed my residence in early September.

I was impressed with (and frankly expected) his professionalism, concrete suggestions and honest feedback during the listing and subsequent sale of my residence.

I am writing to communicate to you Mr. Erickson’s ethical approach to the multiple offers. I had a short time period to make a decision on which offer to accept. Mr. Erickson had been contacted directly by an out-of-town individual who ultimately made a subject-free offer with the highest price offered. However, there would have been some difficulty in arranging a suitable deposit in a timely manner…thus the greater potential for a buyer’s remorse. Mr. Erickson obviously would have received a greater financial benefit had I accepted that offer and the sale gone through. Immediately (and without hesitation) after receiving this offer, he suggested I accept a slightly lower offer (also no subjects) and explained the rationale for this recommendation. I agreed and accepted the lower offer. The ultimate purchasers were represented by another Realtor (sic), resulting in lower commission for Mr. Erickson.

It is apparent that Mr. Erickson has the best interests of his clients in mind, and is a credit to his profession. I want to ensure that Mr. Erickson’s professionalism and ethics are recognized by the appropriate people. If you aren’t the right person, please advise and I will forward accordingly.
