‘My wife Alexandra and I had already been introduced to Dave Burch at Whistler Real Estate before we had even arrived in Canada but we were still very impressed with the time both he and Alison Bradford gave to us in the early weeks of our time in Whistler. It had become immediately obvious to us as new long term residents that the housing market was tight and hot but at the same time we needed to find a property for our family fairly quickly.

Dave quickly understood the list of requirements we gave him and he was great at sifting the available market for only those properties that were a near match. As a result, in a limited supply market, we managed to see a good number of properties which gave us an excellent feel for the market and for our prospects for finding something in the limited time we had.

Dave was great. He gave time freely even to the point of taking calls whilst on his skis and he and Alison were always available at short notice to show us any property of interest.

In the end, when Alexandra and I saw the house that we finally purchased we knew we had found what we were looking for. Dave then went in to action on our behalf, negotiating with the listing agent and pretty much held our hands through the whole process until he handed us the keys with advice on everything from building inspectors to renovation contractors along the way. Nothing was ever too much trouble and many of the contacts Dave provided saved us a lot of time in getting things done.

I cannot speak highly enough of the friendly service, considered advice and bottomless optimism and encouragement that Dave afforded us in the process of buying a property here in Whistler. We have been in our new home for nearly two months now and every day are reminded how lucky we are to have been able to find just what we wanted within the time we had and much of this good fortune is down to the stress-free process that Dave and Alison offered. 

Could not be happier.’ ~ John

“I had the pleasure of working with Alison in a very tight Whistler Market on purchasing my first property.  Alison was amazing!! Always took the time to show me multiple properties the moment they were listed and even to took me back to properties.  Alison or Dave were always available and any questions during the final stages she always had the answers.  Finally, after numerous offers and six months of looking I have finally settled into my new property.” ~ Charlene

After several years of tire kicking the purchase of a 2nd home in Whistler, Dave & team gave me the local knowledge and experience to finally help me make the right decision on the perfect property.  I can’t imagine taking on the commitment and spend without Dave’s guidance and couldn’t be happier with what we chose.  I would highly recommend Dave to anyone looking for a highly experienced Whistler real estate pro.” ~ Alex

“We have worked with Dave and Alison for 3 years now on 2 purchases and the search for a long time residence. They have been incredibly helpful with their knowledge of the area, the Real Estate market in Whistler and the selection of properties available. We are happy to recommend their services if you are looking to buy or sell in Whistler! Their response time is excellent. It doesn’t seem to matter what crazy type of question I throw their way they always find the answer in a very short period of time. I look forward to finding our long term home with the help of Dave and his team.” ~ Meghan and Brett

“We have had the opportunity to work with Dave and Alison from a buy and sell perspective – we have found their combined knowledge of the Whistler market deep, reliable and trustworthy.  While buying and selling concurrently can be a stressful experience their ability to be responsive and timely meant the transactions occurred smoothly and professionally. I would especially like to acknowledge the commitment of Alison to her role, the interest she paid during and post the transaction went above and beyond expectations.  Nothing was too much trouble, making time to do whatever was needed to assist in the purchase of the property, even after settlement she was continually on hand to provide assistance.” ~ Anonymous

“After owning a home in Whistler for 9 years, yet being away from the community for 7 years we felt that in early 2018 it was a perfect time to take advantage of Whistler’s hot real estate market. I choose Dave Burch at Whistler Real Estate based on his wonderful assistant Alison Bradford, having known her personally for over 13 years. Alison took care of all our email and phone communication as Dave was away on vacation during most of our realtor interactions. Alison was extremely courteous, professional and always kept us informed with the current dealings with prospective buyers. Thank you Dave and Alison for a smooth, easy sale ! We couldn’t have done it without you !” ~ Claire

We highly recommend Dave to find the perfect place. We had some very unique criteria for our home in Whistler and Dave came through for us.  He had a good understanding of what we were looking for and his knowledge of the different areas in Whistler and insight into the market was invaluable. Both Dave and Alison are very professional and provided us with good information on each of the places we viewed.  Dave and Alison took great care of us during the purchasing process. All our questions were answered promptly and every detail looked after. Dave’s experience in writing up the offer in a hot market was vital in helping us get the place we wanted. A big thank you to Dave and Alison for making whole process go smoothly and finding us the perfect place in Whistler.” ~ Irene and Carl

“The patience, expertise and advice provided by Dave and Alison was critical in helping us purchase our first home in a very hot Whistler market. With a constant line of contact we were able to jump on opportunities the moment they arose, which ultimately lead to us purchasing our first home. It ticked almost all the boxes on our wish list and was situated in one of the best family neighbourhoods in Whistler. Dave’s advice when it came to the crunch in negotiations really helped get our purchase across the line. Thanks for making our Whistler home ownership dream a reality.” ~ Andrew and Courtney

“We are so pleased with Dave and Alison with our purchases of a condo and a townhome in Whistler.  We contacted Dave out of the blue in Spring 2016 with very little idea of what we were looking for.  He was very patient as we considered our options.  He also put us in touch with Alison, who helped us narrow down our search and then kept us informed of listings that met our criteria.  Alison is very thoughtful, helpful and fair … never pressuring us to take on more than we felt comfortable with.  Dave and Alison both know the Whistler market very well and it shows in their recommendations of listings to view and the prices they negotiated for us.  Because of our great experiences with them, we ended up buying two properties in Whistler in a span of six months.  They made the processes smooth from beginning to end, and even took the extra effort to take care of some small inconveniences after closing.  We highly recommend Dave and Alison to anyone thinking of buying or selling real estate in Whistler.” ~ May and Victor

“We originally contacted Dave around 3 years ago when we put an offer on a cabin at Gun Lake.  Unfortunately that deal fell through, but I was amazed at Dave’s skill as a realtor.  3 years later we bought 2 condos as an investment in Whistler and I would not have worked with anyone else.  Dave and Alison were very organized with all the documentation and paperwork needed to complete the deal, and being from out of town, they made it easy to complete.  The one thing I really admire is that with Dave’s superior knowledge of the market he was able to get us the best possible deal, never once did he ask us to raise an offer, he stood by what he thought was a fair market price.  I would recommend Dave and Alison to anyone.” ~ Trevor and Andrea

“We had such a great experience with Dave and Alison, selling our one bedroom town home.  The documentation process was simple.  The negotiation benefited greatly from Dave’s thorough understanding of the market and fully explaining the buyers requests.  We could not be happier with the sale going through and recommend this team to you.”  ~ Gillian and Munny

“After deciding to list our home in Whistler, I made a series of phone calls to agents and companies in the area that we have noticed over the years and ones who have been recommended to us.  After meeting with Dave initially, I was certain this was  the person we wanted to help us with selling our home.  Dave and his assistant Alison are a wonderful seamless team.  We immediately felt at ease throughout the process of listing, pictures, discussing Marketing and showings.  Listing our home was a difficult decision but Dave and Alison made each step easy. Dave was great to talk things over with and his advice was thoughtful, professional and bang on. Communication was excellent right through to the offer and subsequent sale/close.  We would highly recommend Dave to anyone looking for a Real Estate professional.” ~ Paula and David

“Dave and Alison really get it. They deal with busy people, making big decisions every day and its reflected in the type of service they offer. We were buying a condo for staff housing, so it wasn’t a huge emotional investment for us. They understood our needs, presented us with just the right options, were professional, on top of the details, and got the deal done quickly and painlessly. They also linked us with other professionals we’d need in the process. In short, it couldn’t have gone better.” ~ Danielle Kristmanson

‘We recently purchased a Townhouse in Whistler and were very happy with the guidance we got from both Dave and Alison. We weren’t really sure what we wanted and Dave helped us narrow our search by helping us determine what was most important. He was patient, professional, and very down to earth. Once we found the right place he gave us excellent advice and negotiated fairly. We are thrilled with our new “home away from home” and would highly recommend Dave and Alison to anyone looking to purchase a place at Whistler’ ~ Nicole and Tony
