...My wife and I would like to write this letter of recommendation for Don Butt. Don has had a long standing relationship with my wife's family, helping them with numerous real estate transactions. Most recently, Don facilitated the sale of our condo in Port Moody and the purchase of our new home in Maple Ridge.
Don is organized, reliable and always cunducts himself in a professional manner while at the same time making his clients feel engaged and confident during a naturally stressful time. We always felt that Don had our best interests at heart and often gave us the semblance that we were his one and only client.
It gives us great pleasure to be able to express our thanks and gratitude to Don with this letter of recommendation.
Cam and Jennifer
....Don worked with us for 18 months to find a home in Port Moody. Don has a strong ability to understand what a client is looking for and works diligently to find a home that meets his clients needs.
During our search Don presented us with a real estate investmen and we invested strictly based on my belief in Don's knowledge and once again Don did not disappoint us. The investment went very well!
Don was recommended to us by a family member who had found out about Don as a referral as well. This alone is a testament to his abilities and customer service. Anyone interested in buying or selling real estate in the tri-cities should use Don Butt.
I feel fortunate to have met Don and consider him a friend.
Boyd & Family
...Don never harassed or pressured us. He would often point out deficiencies in homes that we would not have looked for. Within weeks we had found a home we decided to make an offer on. Don insisted on showing us a few more before allowing us to commit so we wouldnt make the wrong decision. Because of his diligence and invaluable advise we found a far superior home nearby.
When the time came to make an offer Don used his sharp negotiating skills to get us the home $25,000 less than the asking price as well as well below the assessed value and $19,000 below the banks appraised value!
Obviously we were very pleased with the service of Don Butt and would not hesitate to use his services again or recommend him to others.
Diana & Family
...My husband and I just wanted to send you a note to thank you for all your help in purchasing our new home. We love it! It is definitely the perfect home for us.
Your patience and professionalism from the very begining made us feel greatly at ease. Your up front and honest approach ensured the transaction went smoothly from start to finish.
There is no one else that we will work with in the future!!!

...It is my pleasure to offer this letter of reference for Don Butt of Remax Sabre Realty. Don's initial valuation of our home and presentation outlining his services and abilities was concise and straightforward. Upon listing our house with Don our home was sold in 7 days for a price within mere thousands of our listing price - a very impressive effort!
Furthermore our relationship with Don was strengthened by his promt attention to our concerns, wishes, and desires and his ability to truly represent our interests.
I would not hesitate to highly recomend Don Butt and I will definetly use his services again in the future. He has proven himself to be a highly trustworthy, competent and knowledgeable individual.
Jon & Susan
...We would like to thank you for the immaculate service that you provided us with when purchasing our first home. I would like you to know that you have earned a client for life and we will be referring you to everyone we know.
Both of us work in industries that are customer service oriented and we know good service when we see it. I have never dealt with anyone as professional, punctual, and out to meet peoples needs as when I dealt with you.
Once again Don, we want to thank you profusely and we want to let you know that you have exceeded our expectations in every aspect. We look forward to doing business with you again in the future.
Sue & Family
...We would like to tell one and all that Don's results oriented attitude is absolutely one of the best in the business. His professional online pictures of our home made it look like a ' special one of a kind ' property! His hardworking, no nonsense method of selling real estate means you will get the best results. If Don says hold off for a better price...you better listen. We would completely recommend Don Butt to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
Dayle & Cheryle
...When we decided to list our home we interviewed 3 realtors. Don was $50k higher than the others and we were concerned that Don was "buying the listing". You sold our home 6 weeks later for over 98% of our asking price! I would recpmmend you without hesitation to family and friends. Thank you for your hard work and professionalism, and a good dose of humour thrown in.
Roger & Sandra
...As fate would have it we found ourselves paired with Don Butt as our realtor. We found him to be very punctual, professional and personable. He listened to our needs and our desires and found us a place that was perfect! A few monthas ago we used you again. Once again, Don went to bat for us finding creative solutions to seemingly impossible situations in order to ensure that our deal worked out. We have had nothing but satisfaction with Don in our real estate adventures. In short, whether you are looking to sell or to buy Don will do whatever it takes to get the job done. We cannot imagine buying or selling with any other realtor.
Ric & Karen
...Through it all, you were such a consummate professional, always asking lots of good questions to make sure you were getting at our exact needs, responding to our countless phone calls and coaching us through both the buying and selling process. And this was no easy task. When it proved to be too much for us we took our home off the market. This is the moment when I really knew you were an exceptional realtor. You were so suportive and understanding. We felt through the entire time that you had our best interest at heart and we were much more to you than just another "sale". You ended up selling our townhouse for $12,000 more than the asking price! Don, we couldnt have asked for a better experience with our realtor. Thank you.
Sue & Pete
...I used Don to sell my townhouse and purchase my condo. Don began by "staging the house" and then took some amazing photographs for the listing online. Within two weeks we had an offer that he negotiated and I sold for the highest price townhouse had ever sold for in my complex! I would highly recommend Don Butt as a real estate agent. He responds quickly, is obviously well connected in the industry and does a fantastic job of representing your best interests!
...We contacted Don after noticing several of his signs in our community ( many with SOLD stickers ). We planned to interview several realtors but after one meeting with Don we felt confident he was very knowledgeable, hands on, hardworking professional. We appreciated the amazing personal service Don provided. He took the time to take stunning photos of our home. He promptly and personally responded to our questions, phone calls and many emails and kept us informed at all times. Within 2 weeks Don sold our home for the full asking price! He provided expert advice during the sales process and we strongly feel it was his sales experience, negotiation skills and comprehensive knowledge of the area which secured the sale of our home so quickly. We highly recommend Don Butt and would certainly use his servives again.

...I met Don Butt some years ago but wasnt ready to sell my home. I was so impressed with Don that I never forgot his name and I knew that when the time came he would be the only realtor I would be calling. Well the time came and Don was right on top of things, going above and beyond the call of duty. Not only is he extremely professional, honest, prompt, reliable and extremely knowledgeable in his field...I have come to think of him as a friend. With Don there are no surprises. He is upfront and to the point. In a very soft market Don completed the sale in just one week for full price! I would not hesitate to recommend Don to anyone considering the need of a great realtor. If I ever sell my condo it will be Don I call.
...We first met Don when he was the selling realtor for our house that we had listed with another agent. At the time I was so impressed with his speed, courtesy, and professionalism and the fact that he really seemed to understand what his clients were looking for that I made a point of remembering him. Over the years if his name came up in conversations about realtors. I noticed people who had dealt with him only had positive reviews. So in 2013 we gave him a call. Not only is Don very pleasant to work with and comfortable to talk to, he knows what he is doing and it works! We sold our house for full asking price in a difficult market. Iam not intending on moving for a long time as we love our new home, but when we do decide to sell again I will call Don and would recommend him to anyone without hesitation.
Megan & Family
...We were immediately impressed with Don's understanding of what our wants and needs were in a house with two teenagers. His knowledge of the history, quality and workmanship of the various homes narrowed down our search to just 4 days when he found the perfect match for us! His best was yet to come...We noticed that a number of homes in our area were still for sale and nothing was moving. We signed the papers on a Sunday and by Saturday Don negotiated a full price offer! AMAZING! We sold for the highest price in the last year for our area! We cannot thank Don enough for his professional work and patience.
Michael & Corinne
...Its been almost 10 years since we last used Don for unsurpassed service. Don brings real expertise and accomplishment to the table. He saved us $29,000 off our purchase and also sold our house in 11 days for $37,000 more than our neighbour did just 2 days earlier! He set a record in Westwood Plateau in our price segment. We would recommend Don Butt to a close friend, collegue, or acquaintance. He responds quickly, is well known, very professional and is a true leader in our books.
