invaluable to us
Amalia gets it. She listened to our needs (and our wish list) and then, using her years of professional experience she guided us through the exciting, but often frustrating Vancouver real estate market. Using her vast knowledge, she made recommendations regarding the resale potential of the neighbourhoods, the buildings, and the layout of each condo we toured. She views the often lengthy process of finding a new home with a client as a learning experience for her as well, and was always interested in checking out buildings. Her great attitude, her work ethic, her generosity with her time, and her energy, made us realize how invested she was in us as clients. This was invaluable to us and allowed us to have confidence that she was the right choice for a realtor and that we made the best choice. I can’t wait to work with her again.

Amalia is my go to person for all things real-estate related. She's connected, fully informed, personable and highly skilled as a negotiator. Her experience is indispensable. I trust her judgement completely.

I was so lucky to have you as my realtor! I appreciate all the support, information & the professionalism you showed in selling my home. Your relaxed approach was very helpful, you made me completely at ease, as it was such a stressful time. I would not hesitate to recommend you to another seller.

great price in a very difficult market
Amalia helped me sell a property at a great price in a very difficult market. Her expertise was invaluable and I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to buy or sell a property in the lower mainland.

best realtor I have ever known
Living in Great Vancouver many years I have transferred several properties including house, farm and bare land. Ms. Amalia Liapis is best realtor I have ever known. She can satisfy seller, buyer and all contracting parties because she is concerned with and love people and help clients more than herself. We trust her. Her Client-First Philosophy –There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional – integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how she works.
A. Xie, Langley, BC Canada Yelp Review
The first thing I noticed about Amalia is how quiet she was. She took the time to sit back and listen to my story. Amalia understood my goals and was committed to helping me achieve them. Most importantly, she has worked through the market cycles, so she has the experience to work ahead of the trends and identify hidden opportunities.
I would strongly recommend Amalia for your next real estate investment.
Alexandra S., Vancouver, BC Canada Yelp Review
cannot speak highly enough
It was an absolute pleasure to have met Amalia Liapis. From the moment we started to look for a new Vancouver apartment it was clear to us that she truly had our needs and investment as her priority. She never pushed us to make a purchase, in fact, she would help us see the "hidden damages" on a property. She truly has an extensive knowledge about Vancouver buildings and their history. She was great helping us when we purchased our first Vancouver apartment and we will continue to use her services as we move into our second property. I cannot speak highly enough of Amalia's value both personally and professionally and do not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is looking for a top Vancouver Realtor. Thanks Amalia!
Alejandra & Michael, Vancouver, BC Canada
i recommend amalia as the best
Thank you for your great efforts! Your experience got me the best possible price on our purchase. With the market changing constantly, it was a comfort knowing that I had your knowledge and experience at my side. You told me "in any economy there is always good investment opportunity" and yes it's true! I am so very happy with my purchase.
She will listen to what you need and she will find the best investment suitable. I've dealt with many realtors in the past but I recommend Amalia as the best.
a relentless advocate
It was a pleasure to work with Amalia on my recent move, just as it was when buying my first home nine years ago. She is experienced, professional, and personable -- a straight-talker, a tough negotiator, and a relentless advocate. With Amalia as my agent, I felt confident that I would get the home I wanted at an attractive price, and that all steps in the transaction would be completed with diligence and care.

amalia liapis is just AWESOME!
What can we say, Amalia Liapis is just AWESOME! We have been trying to find a Vancouver property and we live in Edmonton. Amalia has been wonderful. She has kept us updated on what is on the market that fits our criteria. She truly does care about us and our kids. Expertise, Integrity, Professional & A Kind-Heart! Thank You Amalia for being our Realtor.
Laimen C., Edmonton, AB Canada Yelp Review
whole heartedly recommend your service
Thank you for your never ending patience and guidance while helping us with the three transactions we’ve completed in the Vancouver market over the past two years. As anybody who has bought or sold a house knows, real estate is one of the most stressful experiences of life. We all need help and a little hand holding. You do that and a lot more.
Perhaps most importantly you try to inject some reality into unrealistic expectations about buying or selling prices. We quite often think our homes are worth more than the market is willing to pay. You’re good at trying to get us to ‘back to reality’ and that has saved us a lot of grief and disappointment.
We appreciate your frankness and upfront opinions and would whole heartedly recommend your service.
J.Wong & W.Michaels
nothing less than perfect
It is rare that I find myself writing a letter complementing services received to anyone, or any company for that matter. However I feel compelled to express my delight and profound appreciation for everything both you personally, and your support team have done over the past couple of years to make working with you an absolute joy!
In a time when everyone is complaining about bad service and having to complain to get anything done, you and your team are shining examples of what true customer service should be like! The Realty business is all about customer service and means much more than just answering the phone and showing up to show a property.
I have to say that both you and your team go way beyond any experience I have ever had in the purchase and sale of any property and I have been involved in several over the past eight years.
When we first met you took the time to get to know exactly what my wants and needs were without rushing me or interrupting our initial meeting to take calls from other clients. You made me feel not like your only client but your favorite client, from that first day when I made the decision to invest in property in Vancouver and right through the sale of that same property a little over two years later.
Your follow through was nothing less than perfect, always returning my calls, answering questions and finding information quickly and getting back to me. Your patience, humor, thorough knowledge of the real estate market, willingness to get answers quickly and response time was outstanding!
If asked what words I would use to describe my experience working with you… I would have to include; honesty, integrity, perseverance, caring, tenacity, fun, enjoyable and of course professional, just to list a few. I’m sure I could go on and on, but the most important two words seem almost inadequate at best, to express my overall feelings at having worked with you and your team – THANK YOU!
If anyone was considering working with you I would eagerly tell them – If you are looking for a detail oriented person that goes beyond the extra mile to get things done right, communicates easily and effectively then do yourself a favor and work with Amalia Liapis!
Hisham Sahom, Pharmacist
years of experience
As a past client of Amalia's I would highly recommend her. Her years of experience are apparent as well as her professionalism. She is a fair person who can see both sides of a problem and uses this knowledge to the advantage of her seller and/or buyer.
Nancy Langlois, Vancouver, BC Canada
wealth of knowledge
Amalia is an experienced professional realtor whose wealth of knowledge extends beyond buying and selling homes. She was a great resource for me in regards to sharing information about my new neighborhood--restaurants, shops, parks, etc. She was also very helpful with contacts for decorators and great furniture. I would not hesitate to recommend Amalia as a realtor for my friends and family.
Gabrielle Wright, Account Manager - News 1130
satisfaction through experience, dedication and hard work
In the competitive and fast paced world of Vancouver real estate, I have found a real estate agent to guide me through the stressful process of buying and selling real estate. Amalia Liapis has helped me to buy two properties by expertly handling the negotiating process and securing the possession dates that were convenient for me. The properties were purchased below the list price. Amalia has shown me how to look at real estate as an investment and has opened my eyes about how to make money from real estate in Vancouver.
When it came time to sell the first property in order for me to purchase a larger residence, Amalia was amazing. I recently sold the first property that she helped me buy for double the price that I paid for it in less than four years. Amalia advised me on how to stage the presentation of the condo, by recommending how to paint and decorate for the open house. Amalia even brought in a mirror and several decorative pieces to complete the look. After one open house I had three offers above the listing price!
Amalia achieves this level of professionalism and customer satisfaction through experience, dedication and hard work. Your home is the single largest purchase that you will make. Don't you want an expert realtor advising you? I highly recommend Amalia for anyone buying or selling real estate.
Andrew Short, Vancouver, BC Canada
no substitute for experience
I have bought and sold in excess of a dozen properties with Amalia and Kris over the past 15 years. There simply is no substitute for experience when one is dealing in housing transactions in this city. Having Amalia in your corner representing you will allow you to maximize your return which is so very important in our fickle market. I have on numerous occasions achieved record prices per square foot simply based on her ability to negotiate.
Bruce C., Vancouver, BC Canada Yelp Review
always has extensive knowledge
I have used Amalia Liapis as my Vancouver realtor for the past couple of years. During that time we have done several transactions. I heartily respect her advice and appreciate her responsiveness. Depending on what I needed, she could be an investment advisor or housing consultant or both. Most importantly, she listens to what I am looking for before offering advice.
Amalia always has extensive knowledge of all the major projects in the city as well as what is driving (or limiting) demand. And she makes her recommendations straight up and without sugar coating. She also has a strong sense for market timing.
I would strongly advise new clients to consider working with her.
David Polinsky, Vancouver, BC Canada
needed someone I could trust
Being from out of town and involved in my own business, I needed someone I could trust and count upon to sell my property in Vancouver. Amalia was very competent and professional, the transaction was handled quickly and very much to my satisfaction!
I look forward to doing more business with her in the future.
Bob Becott, Prince George BC
great advantage over other realtors
I have had the distinct pleasure of working with Amalia Liapis on my recent home purchase. I was quite distraught with what was available in the present Vancouver market and was growing concerned that I would be unable to find anything (within a reasonable price range) that I would actual be happy with.
Amalia's patience, knowledge and expertise of the local market gave me a great advantage over other realtors I have dealt with in the past. Her availability at any hour to answer my endless stream of questions was comforting.
She was able to find a home that suited my exacting needs and requirements. The property she found was such a great value that there were numerous parties interested as well and at the end of the first open house, there were six offers on the table for the owner to consider.
Her calm demeanor, understated firmness and purchasing strategy were critical in determining how I should proceed. A strategy which ended up with my bid securing the property.
My day to day business is based in the service industry and as such, I am very familiar with great service. Amalia Liapis "gets it" in every way! I have no qualms about recommending her for your next home purchase.
I know I'll be using her for mine!
Richard Lowy, Executive Producer
In a tough market for sellers, Amalia persevered. In spite of inclement winter weather, her aggressive marketing kept potential buyers coming through the door, finally yielding multiple offers!
Alan Levin, Software Engineer
enthusiasm for the business
I used the services of Amalia Liapis. Between her and her extensively capable and knowledgeable team, I felt that all my investment criteria in the Vancouver Real Estate market were covered.
Her enthusiasm for the business and her outgoing personality made spending countless hours researching and viewing properties more enjoyable than I would have expected. I will undoubtedly use her again to act as my agent in all future vancouver real estate transactions.
a skilled negotiator
Amalia worked with us to buy and sell our family home. Amalia is calm, knowledgeable and a real pleasure to work with. Amalia's competence and common sense approach guided us through the process. It took us well over a year to find a home that worked for our family. Amalia was always patient and provided much needed advice along the way without ever pressuring us to make a decision. When it was time to sell, Amalia was fully attentive and focused on the listing. Amalia knows the market very well and is a skilled negotiator always watching out for her clients' interests. I would recommend Amalia to anyone without hesitation.
Hilary V., University of British Columbia
nothing but positive things to say
As first time home-buyers we had lots of questions and fears. Amalia was very patient with us and made the process of buying a home as painless as possible. She is exceedingly knowledgeable, very competent, and an appropriately hard-nosed negotiator. We have nothing but positive things to say about her professionalism. We want her buying and selling our next house too!
Susan Birch, Ph.D., Psychology Professor and David Melchionna, Network Engineer
advice and constant support was invaluable
We have recently worked with Amalia Liapis through the buying and selling of condos in downtown Vancouver. Working with Amalia was a pleasurable experience; her knowledge, expertise, tenacity and ebullient personality made what could have been a stressful situation much more tolerable.
When we first listed with Amalia, she convinced us to take what seemed to be an unorthodox approach to the sale of our condo. We listed low and had the buyers bid up. While this might not be unusual to some, the approach made us quite nervous. Amalia assuaged these feelings, showed the suite, took bids and managed to make the sale in our price range. The transactions were seamless and pleasant.
In the more complicated matter of the purchase of our new condo, while not being part of the pre-build purchase of the unit three years ago, Amalia came on the walk through with us and was phenomenal at spotting deficiencies and pressing the developer's agent to address our concerns. As well in a difficult close, her advice and constant support was invaluable. Indeed the pressure that we put on the developer under her guidance enabled us to be one of the first people to take possession of a unit in this new development. Her knowledge of process and detail when it comes to real estate in this city is most impressive.
We have enjoyed working with Amalia Liapis. We would give her our strongest recommendation.
H. Gavez & V. Becott
looking out for our best interest
We have used Amalia for several transactions and find her to be 100% committed whether it is finding us something new to invest in or ensuring us the most money from a sale. She is always accurate in her knowledge and we continually choose to work with her because she is fun, competitive (to our benefit!) and most of all very competent. It is people like her that make buying and selling real estate a stress-free experience. It is comforting to know that we have Amalia looking out for our best interest.
Natalie & Gabe Mantle
I would like to say that Amalia is one of the most knowledgeable and helpful realtors that I have ever dealt with. As an out of province buyer, it was essential that I find a realtor that had a keen grasp of the market in Vancouver and knew the ever changing trends that could affect my investment. With Amalia, I had absolute confidence that my interests would be met. As a result, I have no reservations in recommending her to any discerning person with real estate needs.
B. Wong, M.D.
honest and informed
In all my experiences with buying and selling homes, no one can hold a candle to Amalia Liapis. She is honest and informed, and has a unique gift of finding the home that fits the individual and family. I have recommended her repeatedly to others and everyone has been extraordinarily happy with their decision to go with Amalia Liapis.
She is quite simply the best there is.
Alan Kingstone, UBC Psychology Department, Vancouver, Canada
unquestionably an "expert in her field"
My association with Amalia Liapis goes back nearly ten years to a time when we were both serving as directors on our Condominium Board in Vancouver.
From the first time I met Amalia I was impressed with her knowledge, understanding and passion for all those things related to Real Estate. Amalia is unquestionably an "expert in her field".
When in 1999 it was time for me to put my Condo on the market, naturally I listed it with Amalia. One of the smartest moves I ever made. The unit was sold quickly and at 10% above listed price.
In my opinion, Amalia is an accomplished and competent businesswoman who always displays true passion for whatever it is she does and I can very easily recommend her to anyone as such.
Chuck McCoy, VP & Market Manager, Rogers
always willing to go that extra mile
I have known and worked with Amalia over the past year. I highly recommend her for several reasons. For one, she really knows the Vancouver market. Two, Amalia is very accommodating and is always willing to go that extra mile for her clients. If you are looking at the Vancouver market for investment or to make it your home, you can do no better than to work with Amalia.
Jim Feist, Las Vegas, Nevada Yelp Review
always amazed and impressed me!
I have known Amalia for several years now. The breadth of her knowledge of the Vancouver real estate market has always amazed and impressed me! And her years of experience give her a practical, common sense approach geared to making sure her clients' needs are satisfied. She also has the ability to make what can be a very stressful time, enjoyable! I would strongly encourage anyone considering buying or selling real estate in Vancouver to contact her!"
Charlotte P. Bell, Catalyst Corporate Finance Lawyers
We have used Amalia to Buy and Sell our homes over the past 10 years. We have found her to be knowledgeable, committed and honest. We feel her greatest strength throughout the years has been her ability to time the market just right in order to get the top price of our homes and the ability to find the newly listed homes so quickly. Without hesitation we would recommend Amalia Liapis.
Dan & Terry Hoover, Vancouver, BC Canada
we would strongly recommend amalia liapis
We have used the real estate services of Amalia Liapis on two sale and two purchase transactions. We were confident with Amalia's knowledge of her market area, both from a pricing and product availabiilty perspective. She was current on all new listings, and obviously has built relationships with other realtors to become part of the "loop" for hot listings. Our experience is that Amalia is a strong and confident negotiator who puts forth the extra 10% of effort to obtain the best price yet with consideration and calculation of the appropriate amount of risk to assume to get there. Amalia's advice and expertise spans both the purchase of real estate as a home and as an investment. We would strongly recommend Amalia Liapis as your realtor.
Heather Barnett and Robert MacLachlan, North Vancouver
charming! witty! and educated!
CHARMING! WITTY! AND EDUCATED! She is always on top of the market! She is dedicated , with a proven track record. Buying or selling..... Amalia's the best!!
Stella Cameron, Dubai, UAE
Since it was our first time buying, we weren't really sure what to expect, and we wanted a realtor with good-quality experience. We were very happy with our decision to choose Amalia. Most impressive was her prompt responses, professional attention, and thoughtfulness in helping to assume a smooth and successful closing. Amalia worked really hard to get us the house we wanted and we are very pleased. We found her to be very professional and of high integrity, and would recommend her to anyone.
Preet & Finn, Vancouver, BC Canada
made the experience fun and exciting!
It is with pleasure that I am writing to recommend Amalia. When I decided to buy my first home, a friend referred me to Amalia. I interviewed 3 different real estate agents and it became obvious that Amalia was the right choice. She not only took care of the business side of my purchase and helped me make my decision...she also made the experience fun and exciting! I never felt like she was pushing me into a buying situation and always felt confident in her knowledge of the real estate market. Amalia is a joy to work with and she gives real estate agents a good name!!
Dierdre Phillips, Articula Consulting, Vancouver
absolute pleasure to work with
Amalia is an absolute pleasure to work with. She is extremely knowledgeable, and will do everything she can to ensure the best possible results for you. Amalia is so good at what she does, because she genuinely cares. She has an amazing team and is without question, the ONLY Realtor I will ever use!
Craig J., Vancouver, BC Canada Yelp Review
I found my "dream home"!
After searching for a Vancouver home for a longer than expected time. I came to the conclusion that a Realtor could really speed up the process. Amalia you always had the listings early in the morning and directed me to look at suitable properties. Eventually the right home came up and I never thought I'd have the opportunity to buy it, due to the market conditions and demand. You helped negotiate the purchase price and I found my "Dream Home"!
Sid Bernard, Vancouver, BC Canada
knows the market very well
When we moved to Vancouver from offshore in late 1999 we were in desperate need of a good agent in a housing market we did not understand. Our daughter was also buying her first "starter" apartment at the time and she found Amalia through a reference from a friend who had used her to find her apartment. We were not looking starter, but rather west side upscale but we liked the way Amalia supported our daughter through a first transaction so we decided to go with her. As actions speak louder than words the story can best be told by the following facts. Our daughter used Amalia to sell her apartment two years later, we used Amalia to buy our home in 2000 and a new residence in 2005 and also used her to sell the place we bought in 2000. We have also recommended her to personal friends and would not think of using anyone else.
Amalia knows the market very well, has always found us properties that fit our needs but were also a good value propositions. She works hard, is an excellent negotiator, watches out for her clients interests and has been complimented by our lawyers on how she covers our position by the way she words offers etc. She also offers good advice but knows when we need time to make a decision that fits our personal needs and tastes.
When we eventually sell and buy again we will definitely go back to Amalia and have no hesitation in recommending her.
Russ and Carla Horner, Vancouver, BC Canada
absolutely no hesitation
I am most pleased to provide an unequivocal reference for Ms. Liapis who has recently acted on my behalf in the very efficient sale of a property I held at King's Landing in Vancouver. Not only was her conduct professional and courteous at all times, she successfully sold the property in just over three weeks at a price just $5,000 below the high end of my desired range. Considering the sale was completed at $1.695 million, this is really an incredible result. The deal that she brought forward to me had been very carefully evaluated by her and her recommendations on counter proposals, the removal of subjects and her opinion on the capacity of the buyers to complete the transaction were 100 per cent correct.
I have absolutely no hesitation in highly recommending Ms. Liapis as your agent. I will unquestionably be calling her in the future to help me again.
Katherine and Micheal, Vancouver, BC Canada
honest, fair, and tenacious
"Buying or selling? Amalia and adriaan get the deals done!. Honest, fair, and tenacious when needed! I've recommended them to all my friends."
