Cecilia did a fantastic job selling my condo. She is professional, knowledgeable, genuine, conscientious, and a great communicator. She made the process easy for me. I had full confidence and trust in her and she did not let me down. I highly recommend Cecilia!  5 Stars!

Diane Caron

Cecilia's many years experience and expert knowledge of the neighbourhoods  she deals with makes selling or buying a home an exemplary experience.  Her always amiable disposition, honesty and firm negotiation skills make working with her a pleasure.

R. Warren

As a realtor, Cecilia provides a broad economic view, market intelligence and insight into local neighborhoods.  This well-rounded perspective facilitated our decision making on the purchase of a home – the largest expenditure we have ever made.  As a mortgage broker, Cecilia has our best interests at heart.  She recommended a loan package that was optimal for us, and executed the paper work in a diligent and timely manner, even as it was not the most financially lucrative for her.  Cecilia’s combined experience as a realtor and mortgage broker are advantageous in this competitive market.

Cecilia was always available for me whenever I needed her. She was professional and efficient and never lost her smile dealing with everyone. I had a great experience having her as my realtor!

I wanted to send you this brief note to thank you for everything you have done to sell our condo.  Roger and I were impressed with your marketing plan and the way in which you proactively executed  on it.  You demonstrated a lot of creativity and initiative in giving us the best chance to sell our place.  You went out of your way to ensure that our needs were met and I always felt that you were on our side and that our wishes were of utmost importance to you.
M. Mercier

I found Cecilia to be knowledgeable, professional and personable.  She agressively marketed my condo without sacrificing integrity.  I am so impressed!
The facts speak for themselves.  Other realtors may claim to be Citygate specialists but only Cecilia Gatchalian can claim to be the listing agent for the Citygate condo that sold for the most dollar per square foot in the last four years.
As a satisfied customer, I urge everyone who wants the best results to get the best realtor -- Cecilia Gatchalian.

Cecilia Gatchalian just worked wonders with us. At the time that my husband and I decided to move to a bigger place, she not only presented us with the best options but the most appropriate ones as well. Being on the family way at the time was not easy; our priorities completely changed from when it was just the two of us. We now live in a place we love and enjoy; with a safe neighborhood for our children, close to family and friends and most importantly, well within our means. Buying our new place and selling the old one was both nerve-wracking and exciting so it matters to be in good hands. Thanks to this brilliant realtor, she helped make our dreams not only a possibility but a reality!

J. and B. La’o

Thank you Cecilia, you provided wonderful service - hard working and energetic - also, a great help to me.  Good job!

We are sending you this small note to thank you so much for all your help, Cecilia.  You made us feel like we were your #1 client by promptly returning our phone calls, answering our endless emails and receiving us in your office without appointments.  As well as answering all our questions and concerns with so much patience and knowledge. 
We have passed your name on to all of our friends and acquaintances and will continue to do so to anyone who needs expert advice.  We made one of the most important decisions of our lives with knowledge and confidence with you behind the scenes. 
Thank you again and we wish you all the best in the future for you and your family.

What kind of a realtor talks you out of buying a house?  We are talking salesperson turning down commission here.  Well, it’ll be someone who truly cares and someone who has her client’s best interest in mind. 


When we called Cecilia to ask information about a house which we were totally prepared to buy, she gave me all the information we needed asap.  However, she went a few steps further.  She slowed things down, sat with my husband and I, and we discussed vital information.


Where do we work?  Where do the kids go to school?  How was our commute to and from work? What type of community do we want?  What are our future plans?  She made us answer questions which we never even considered.  What did we know?  We never owned a house before.  We thought we should stick to a house we can afford…end of story.  Turns out, there’s more to buying a house than just considering the price.


Thank goodness we approached Cecilia because she didn’t take advantage of us and our situation.  She is trustworthy, reliable and knowledgeable.  We are proud to recommend her services to our friends and family. 


A. and J. Gabaldon

I've done it!  I bought my first home and I couldn't have done it without your help and generosity.
Thank you very much!

Thank you so much to Cecilia Gatchalian for her dedication to finding us our first perfect home.  Her experience was invaluable and only helped us build our trust in her.  She will be our realtor again in the future!

Caroline and Sarah Halvorson

Buying our first home was both exciting and overwhelming! Your honesty and integrity was very reassuring during the entire process.  All the information you provided allowed us to make decisions based on our own personal circumstances.  Thank you for giving us the confidence we needed to make the big move!  We're definitely recommending you to all our family and friends!!

Shirley & Bing Guingona

I just wanted to say thank you very much for everything.  You have been absolutely excellent and I am so glad that we had the opportunity to have you working with us.  I will definitely be passing along my recommendations to any of our friends who are buying in the future.

We would like to let you know that we appreciate very much the very professional and straight forward advise you gave us everytime we seek one when we were still searching for our first house. It helped us make the right decisions but more importantly helped us manage our expectations. We look forward to working with you again in the future.


Have a great year ahead and GOD BLESS YOUR FAMILY ALWAYS!!!


Gerry and Cecile Ramirez

It has always been a pleasure to work with Cecilia.  Good quality time she spends, good service, always happy.  We feel safe and confident working with her, always listening to us, always prepared with answers and solutions.
Great experience!
Carlos and Patricia

Ferdie and I were very fortunate to have Cecilia Gatchalian help us on the recent purchase of our home. We are thankful to the One La Salle Vancouver group.  One of the many benefits of this group is through this group we are able to expand our contacts, in this case we met Cecilia.  The talks are very helpful and informative.

To all our fellow La Sallians who are planning to buy or sell a property (house, townhouse, condo), we highly recommend Cecilia.

Ferdie and Marizen Valderrama

I enjoyed working with you.  I would definitely refer my friends to you.  I feel confident that you have provided me with the best service.  You are a pleasure to work with.
Thank you for all your help.
