Working with Simon was an absolute pleasure. He listened to us and adapted to our thinking as we learned more of the Vancouver market and availability. He worked incredible hours for us to meet our fairly aggressive deadlines. He was diligent and organized and added to the schedule as appropriate when he thought there were more places we should see. I will whole-heartedly recommend him to anybody looking for a new home! Thank you for everything you have done – we could not have done it without you!

I cannot say enough great things about Simon. He worked tirelessly with me to find my new home. We spent many weekends and weeknights going to open houses and showings and he always had great insight and comments about the places we looked at. A great example of how hard he works for you is that I saw a place on my own at 4pm realized I wanted to throw an offer at the place right now ASAP. I called him up and even though he was not directly at his desk he was able to get the paperwork all done in 30 min and submitted the offer. I am so glad my friends recommended him to me as I am finally done my search.

Simon came recommended to me by a mutual friend, and helped my sister and I sell an estate property. This was a tough decision, and we always appreciated Simon’s sincere, laid-back, and professional approach as he helped us through the sometimes stressful and complicated process. When we finally did decide to sell, the condo was on the market for only 6 days. He helped us to prepare by suggesting what kinds of updates were worth investing in, and ensured the timing of the open house lined up well with what was going on with the market at the time.
We were very pleased with his marketing strategy, with the outcome of the sale, and with his extensive knowledge of the nuances of the contract.
It was invaluable to work with someone whom we could trust so much, and who so clearly had our best interests in mind throughout the whole process. Simon obviously loves his work, and is very good at it–I’d recommend him to anyone!
Thanks again Simon!
Julia Cameron, Port Moody
Simon was amazing through the whole process of selling our long time family home. My dad was so lucky to have him represent him and guide him through everything he could expect, as well as the twists and turns along the way. His many years of experience and professionalism served us all well. Thank you Simon!
Whit Truong, Vancouver
I had a wonderful experience purchasing my first condo with Simon Clayton. He was easy to communicate with, very knowledgeable, and trustworthy–I truly felt he had my best interests in mind. I would not hesitate to recommend Simon to anyone looking to buy real estate in Vancouver!
Megan G., Vancouver
We had an outstanding experience with Simon as we sought our first home. We received a very positive referral to Simon, and he surpassed expectations. His strong knowledge of the city/Lower Mainland, the market, and other realtors was evident from our first meeting, when he did a thorough job of walking us through our key points to understand our needs. Once we plunged into looking in earnest, he was exceedingly quick in correspondence and setting up viewings, and he pointed us to excellent listings. I feel that he really shone when it came time to make an offer. Simon kindly and expertly guided us into position to be as well prepared as possible so that our offer would be the most compelling in this tough sellers’ market – and it was. We are so thrilled to be moving into our first home, and we are so grateful to Simon for all his excellent guidance. We are relatively new to real estate, but we shared Simon’s advice with trusted expert friends, and they too were impressed by the calibre of Simon’s knowledge and guidance.
The only down side to our successful bid is that I’m disappointed we won’t get to spend more time with Simon! He’s a true pleasure to be around as well as an outstanding realtor.
Mike and Frances Corney, Vancouver
Simon helped us to find a new house and sell our old one, and we were very impressed with his enthusiasm and knowledge. He was consistently available and attentive, and always followed through on the commitments he made. We would highly recommend Simon to anyone looking for a personable, conscientious realtor.
John McLean, Vancouver
I have dealt with real estate agents in my professional capacity for some 30 years. I have also bought and sold a number of properties personally. Simon is the most professional and knowledgeable agent I have dealt with. I have no reservation in recommending him.
Sandra M., Vancouver
When my parents decided to make a change, we knew that they would need a really great realtor to walk us all through the daunting process of selling the house they had been living in for 60 years. We were lucky enough to connect with Simon, who took the time to explain the “why’s” and the “when’s”, and to create a solid strategy that we could all understand and support. The tremendous sale price was largely the result of Simon’s work and planning, and it exceeded all of our expectations. We would not hesitate to recommend Simon to anyone as a responsible, approachable and personable realtor.
Jan & Al Kallas, Vancouver
After nearly 40 years in our old residence, it was decided it was time to move. As neophytes to this experience we were apprehensive re: whom , what company do we solicit? Simon was recommended and immediately allayed any concerns once we met. He bravely tolerated our indecision for 2 years of open houses, but we could see that with every rejection there was a secret aha “ now I know what they are looking for”. His thoroughness, his thoughtfulness, and depth of knowledge about everything was always encouraging. His sense of humour made every open house an adventure in theatre. Ultimately the sale was quick, was slick, and met expectations in timing and price. Simon is highly recommended.
Fraser R. and Laurel R., Vancouver
Simon was our realtor for the purchase of our first condo and more recently for the sale of our condo and the purchase of our new house. His deep knowledge of the real estate market and interpersonal skills were invaluable during our house hunt. Simon took the time to understand exactly what we were looking for in a home and neighborhood and gave us excellent advice on all stages of the process. We would highly recommend Simon to anyone looking for a trustworthy and knowledgeable realtor.
Thea C., Vancouver
During the search for my new home, I was continually impressed by Simon’s knowledge of the real estate market and high level of professionalism. Not only could he answer any and every question I had, but I was able to trust in him completely to help me make the right decisions. He was always available when needed, and really followed through in finding me exactly what I was looking for. I would confidently recommend Simon to any friend or family member..
Mike and Chantal, Vancouver
Simon was a pleasure to work with. He was dependable, on time, and had excellent follow-through. Simon also was patient and made us feel comfortable making important decisions. He went out of his way to accomodate our schedule. His friendly manner and professionalism ensured the process went smoothly. We’d highly recommend using Simon.
Bruce Mitchell, Vancouver
I have used Simon for 3 different transactions, starting with the purchase of my first condo, then the sale of my condo and purchase of our new house.
He is extremely professional and personable and walks you through the process very well. He is very detail oriented and is able to use his experience in the marketplace, understanding of neighbourhoods, buildings etc. to make sure that you have all of the information needed to make a smart buying and selling decision.
After dealing with other realtors (that were showing homes) during our search for a new home it became even more apparent that Simon is superior in his skills and knowledge that anyone else we dealt with. I would highly recommend Simon to any friends, family or colleagues as someone to trust with handling the biggest purchase and decision of your life.
Elaine W., Vancouver
Simon has the ability to read a situation & takes the time to understand people and their requirements. He really listened to my “wish list” and found me properties to look at that suited my budget, and in the areas where I wanted to live. His knowledge of the Vancouver Real Estate market is extensive. He was on top of everything, and my advocate at all times. Simon Clayton is of Scottish Heritage and you know the old saying – “If it’s not Scottish it’s Crap” – so why would you choose another realtor?
Amanda and Dylan, Vancouver
Simon took the time to help us find exactly what we were looking for. His patience, enthusiasm, and knowledge encouraged us and made our fist purchase easy and fun. We highly recommend Simon to anyone looking for an honest, reliable, experienced realtor!
C. Coughlan, Vancouver
Simon’s patience and knowledge of the Vancouver real estate market made my experience as a first time home buyer comfortable and seamless. His interpersonal skills and calm character makes buying a condo an enjoyable process as opposed to a stressful one. Simon maintains excellent relationships with other realtors throught the city which is an invaluable asset when purchasing from various realtors throughout Vancouver. I would recommend Simon for any home, apartment or condo
Kristie Marsden (Realtor), Vancouver
It’s always a pleasure to work with Simon. As an associate of mine, I can trust when I refer my clients or work along side him, that he’ll provide top-notch service, professionalism, and above all things, the personal attention our clients deserve. I highly recommend Simon Clayton to anyone looking for the integrity, confidence and personal connection they deserve, when trading Real Estate in Greater Vancouver. You won’t find a better guy in the business!
Zita Monaghan, Surrey
Simon came referred to me by a respected acquaintance with a long track record at Macdonald Realty. On behalf of my employer, I needed to work on a sensitive Foreclosure involving a medical professional working and residing in Asia at the time. I was impressed by Simon’s professional communication and follow up throughout the listing and sale process. I know he cares about his contacts as I witnessed his follow up to ensure satisfaction to both the seller, and the buyer who he did not represent, as well as appraiser and cleaning company to whom he had no formal obligation. Simon comes highly recommend
T. Lennie, North Vancouver
Simon was referred to me through a mutual client. He very quickly became our “go-to guy” for selling properties in foreclosure. Over the past few years, he has listed (and sold!) multiple foreclosures in the Vancouver area. Every file has been handled in an extremely professional manner, and has received attention to even the smallest details. Simon’s experience, enthusiasm and knowledge have made it a pleasure to deal with him for the last few years – and hopefully for many more to come! I would highly recommend using Simon, and will definitely refer him to my friends, family and co-workers!
Anthony & Fiona Sutcliffe, Hong Kong
Simon has helped us to purchase two great properties in Vancouver in the past few years. As we are living overseas, it’s so important to work with a person we could trust and who really has our best interests in mind. What we liked about working with Simon was that fact that he really took time to understand our needs, he helped us to understand the market and once we began the search for properties, he always listened to feedback to constantly refine his search to help us find our ideal property. What makes Simon different is that he never pushes you just to get the sale or close the deal. He always looks for the purchase that meets his client’s needs. Once our target properties were identified, he has a great network of mortgage providers, lawyers and rental agents etc which was invaluable in helping us to complete our purchases from overseas.
In summary, Simon is a professional, trustworthy and fun guy to work with and we recommend him wholeheartedly.
Mara and Garett Halayko, Squamish
Simon helped my husband and I purchase our first home, Simon was so supportive and listened to what we really wanted in a property. Simon made us so comfortable and we knew he was always acting in the best interest of our needs and wants. He really took the time to ensure that the properties we were interested in were in great quality and would not give us any trouble in the years to come. Simon has extensive knowledge of Vancouver real estate and was able to get us into a neighbourhood we never thought possible. We would highly recommend Simon as a realtor and we will most definitely work with him again in the years to come!
