Buying a home is a very exciting time, but can also be a daunting and complex process. For most buyers, buying a home is one of largest financial decisions they will make. On top of the financial concerns, the emotional involvement can be overwhelming and stressful. I can make this experience enjoyable and rewarding.
When selling your property, I use marketing tools and technology to make certain that your property reaches qualified buyers. Using my creative techniques to market your property and negotiating strategies, my goal is to get you the best value.
Whether you are buying or selling, I understand the process can often be challenging and complicated. I focus on taking the pressure off you, so you can make clear and concise decisions throughout the process.
Two words describe our experience having Marlon helped us buy our newest home!!! "BLOWN AWAY". We cannot say enough awesome things about the personalized service Marlon provided, going above and beyond at every turn. He literally left us speechless when he negotiated a deal of the century!!! His engineering background and go get attitude sets him above the rest. I promise you will not be disappointed. Many thanks to Marlon!!!!
Your past and future clients,
I can't say in enough words how amazing Marlon was during our entire home buying process! Through all of the stress of a two month time crunch, crazy bidding wars and a few very last minute decisions, he always remained patient, professional and understanding. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell! We will definitely have him as our realtor for our future home purchases!
Marlon posted my condo for sale on Wednesday and sold it the next Monday. While there were 5 other units for sale in the same condo and still unsold til now. Made over 10 showings in a few hours on the same day and everyone is happy. Got very close to asking price. Couldn't be happier. My go to realtor for buy and sell from now on.
I was in a financial position to consider purchasing a new property, but was quite hesitant. I met with Marlon to casually view some select properties, with no pressure to make movement on them. After noticing my increased interest, Marlon demonstrated to me how we could strategically sell my current property and maximize my value. I was shocked how quickly we were able to generate offers, which were higher in value than I had imagined. Once this was complete, we looked at properties more closely. Again, there was a strategy Marlon employed to us making any offers. In a market where almost every property was selling over asking price, we managed to purchase a property under list price. I benefitted on both ends. This situation may not be the norm, but certain elements were exactly as we had strategized and planned for. I was very satisfied with my result working with Marlon. There are many agents out there to choose from. Choose one that works hard, cares about you, and is simply enjoyable to spend time with.
Marlon is simply an amazing realtor who cares so much for his clients. He always puts his clients best interest first and do all the little things to make sure everything is done properly. He personally helped me clean my condo a few days before he had photographers come in for listing my place. Photos ended up looking flawless and amazing. His marketing is top notch and his vision for everything is amazing. His work ethic, integrity, dedication and professionalism shows who he really is when it comes to this clients. He helped me with the sale and purchase of my dream home with no stress. He is a great negotiator when it comes to getting me the best deal on my new place. Thank you so much for helping me achieve my real estate goals. Highly recommended realtor!
Our family approached Marlon when we were selling our Townhouse in Surrey. Due to our long distance move, we needed someone who knew what he was doing and was able to keep up great communication with us. Marlon is friendly, approachable, and professional. He keeps things simple and clear and delivers his services well. He made the process of preparing for the photo shoot a breeze and the results were stunning. Marlon was able to sell our home above our expected price despite the competition that was happening within the same complex. He was efficient with all the legal dates to enable us with our sell and buy process. We highly recommend Marlon. If you want a trouble and worry-free experience, Marlon is the one for you!
Many thanks to Marlon! He helped us buy our property with no hassle. Marlon made us feel comfortable and made the experience really easy. He is very knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend Marlon for all your real estate needs.

It was a pleasure working with Marlon. He was honest and loyal during the entire process and has helped me out the past year with his expertise in the market. He sold my place in a weekend with 11 offers.
One word - AMAZING! Marlon Pradana represented me in the last purchase of my home and he was always on top of things. He made sure I was comfortable and understood everything about the buying process. We were in multiples and he was able to help me win my dream home! Not at any point did I feel pressured to buy. I am super happy with his service because he always kept me in the loop and was quick with his responses. He was professional, kind, patience and very caring. I will definitely use him again and refer him to my friends and family.
Thank you, Marlon!

Vancouver. It took about a year from the moment they were introduced to finding the perfect property. It was definitely challenging communicating long distance most of the time, but they kept in contact and made the entire process very easy. Marlon set some time aside to make sure my friend was taken care of while he visited Vancouver for the home search for a short time. All in all my friend was very happy and thanked me for introducing Marlon and helped him with his first real estate transaction here in Vancouver. If you are looking for an honest and hard working individual, you will not be disappointed. Thanks Marlon.
This is not an easy market for a first time home buyer, so I was not very optimistic that I could find anything within my price point. Luckily I was introduced to Marlon through a mutual contact. At our first interaction, I knew that Marlon would work hard for me. He took the time to get to know me, and understand my needs. Marlon was patient enough to show me a variety of properties and he really took the time to make sure I felt comfortable with my decision. I would strongly recommend Marlon to anyone who is looking to buy or sell their home. He brings with him a fantastic attitude, guidance and care for his clients.
We contacted Marlon when we were looking to buy our first home. He was very friendly and approachable. He created a group chat with me and my wife to keep us updated in real time. He was very knowledgeable and friendly throughout the process. Would definitely recommend him to future homeowners/sellers.
