Linda Marie Burchell Oakwyn Realty Ltd.


The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to show you their correspondence. Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my down-to-earth and honest approach has earned me many friends - I think that's fantastic!

The whole sales process went so smooth, so fast.

Wouldn't consider buying/selling real estate in Vancouver without her!!

"Linda has been our realtor for three real estate purchases and two sales, and my husband and I both agree that she is head and shoulders above the rest. Linda brings a level of thoroughness and thoughtfulness throughout the process, where other realtors leave you to figure out the details, anticipate problems, and resolve confusion or issues. She's been there every step of the way -- even those times when we were just contemplating a change and didn't end up proceeding with anything -- and she doesn't just disappear after subjects are removed. She is a fantastic and tireless advocate for her client's interests throughout the whole process. She has truly become a trusted advisor for us. Having had interactions with other realtors in our various transactions and seen how they work, we wouldn't consider buying/selling real estate in Vancouver without her!!" -Eunice

You're an asset and a treasure to the real state profession.

"We did not just meet a real state agent, we met a friend, helpful, gentle, understanding to our needs, accommodating, absolute expert in your field and getting back to our questions asap. 

My husband and I would like to share with you the excellent service you offered us.

Indeed we had the pleasure meeting you at the Hemlken open house, although this deal did not go through, you stuck by us did not give up or pressure any other purchase, helped us find another condo, worked very hard to please us and soon will have possession of our condo. 

Again negotiation and communication back & forth with the seller, strata management not very easy, however your hard work, patience and dedication made it happen. 

My husband and I would like to thank you very much, you did an exceptional job being with us explaining every step, providing documents & explaining each document. 

You're an asset and a treasure to the real state profession. 

Over the years we did business with several real state agents, only with you we felt at ease no pressure, your representation and professionalism and respect exceeds all expectation. 

You answered all our questions and if you did not have the answer at hand, asap found the answer and got back to us. 

We surely will recommend you to all our friends and family, your commitment and dedication to service are a great assets. 

We received first class service. 

In our eyes we met you by chance as an agent but now you became a trusted friend. 

We're sure will have future business contact. 

Once again thank you Linda for all your hard work, when we had doubt you put our mind at ease, without your help we would not have purchased our condo." -Marcelle & Roger 

Understood my needs as a buyer/seller.

"I have worked with Linda now for several years on both the purchasing and selling of real estate in the downtown Vancouver condo market. Her expertise has never failed me as she has guided the process with knowledge of the market, understanding my needs as a buyer/seller, while finessing all the numerous details of strata minutes, inspections and final contract negotiations. She is a gem and a solid real estate agent who always had my best interests first and foremost in closing the deal. Honesty is her middle name and I have trusted her with some very tough negotiations and will do so again anytime I need to buy or sell property. I highly recommend her." -Susan

To Whom It May Concern

Great Enthusiasm and Perserverence

Great Enthusiasm and perserverence which both provided proof of your many years of experience.  We greatly appreciate your tolerancer, knowledge and patience. Thank you very much Linda Carlie and Ben.



Linda, we can’t thank you enough for your guidance and your support during the sale of our condo. We love communication and you are the Queen of Communication! You kept us in the loop every step of the way and since we live in Thailand, that’s a really important aspect of having a real estate agent. We can’t just talk when a potential buyer comes to view the suite.

You checked our mail, scanned it all and even went to the trouble of picking up a registered letter for us! You definitely went above and beyond what we expected from a real estate agent. We didn’t only get the benefit of being a client of yours - We’ve also made a life-long friend in the mix.

Thank you for all you have done! We can’t recommend you highly enough.

love and light,
Aleesha and Parzival Sattva

Dear Linda,

I wanted to write a more personal referral/recommendation letter than the form you provided. I hope that’s OK? You are welcome to also use this on your website if you like.

To whom it may concern:

I bought my first condo through Linda on a pre-sale in downtown Vancouver in 1998. She was very patient and helpful with all my ‘new homeowner’ questions, and referred me to a mortgage specialist; law firm to complete the sale; and made me aware of all the required real estate details that a first-time buyer needs to know.
Naturally, when I decided to buy another larger condo in 2008 to accommodate my new husband and dog, I turned to Linda again. She carefully listened to all our requirements and did her homework searching for the perfect, affordable, waterfront condo in New Westminster even though it was outside her regular sales area. She negotiated a terrific deal for us and lined up a building inspector; went over all the Strata Minutes with us; and made sure we were completely happy with our new purchase.
This year when I decided to sell the downtown condo, I called Linda and discussed listing options and market pricing. I was pleasantly surprised at the amount she felt confident listing the unit at, and went ahead with the listing. Despite the turbulent sales market due to the new government regulations restricting foreign buyers, Linda negotiated a deal near listing price, all cash, no conditions offer in just over a month. When I encountered challenges with the existing tenant, Linda was there to smooth the transition, and actually found my tenant a new rental home!
Throughout my real estate activities, I observed the other party’s realtor and was highly appreciative of the noticeable difference between what Linda does and what their realtor was willing to do. Her attention to the details, diligence with scheduling showings with the tenant, and even cleaning up the unit before she showed it to potential buyers were all way beyond what I expected from a realtor, and not even close to what I observed from the other party’s realtor. If you’re looking for a top-notch, thorough real estate agent with decades of experience handling our volatile market, then I wholeheartedly recommend Linda Burchell to help you with your real estate needs! Terry H.

Her fantastic ability to find the best properties to look at on a tour - Linda made my real estate experience very easy and a pleasant experience - I have recommended Linda man, many times.  She is excellent at what she does.
Susan O.

What I enjoyed most about working with Linda was simply working with her.  She gave us superb, selfless service 24/7 and we have referred two people to her since  our purchase in November 2016
Ann and Marshall
