What My Clients Say

"Where do I start…Thank you so much Jaco!!

Jaco’s industry knowledge and well thought out responses were very much appreciated. I had a lot of questions and he was able to clarify all of them very promptly.   With Jaco’s system of innovative and efficient technological capabilities, my partner and I were able to sign/approve/review documents digitally and seamlessly. 

From the beginning till the end, Jaco’s organized files really helped us survive the hectic schedule of going to showings especially I work full-time and go to school part-time.  Thank you so much Jaco for helping us find our first dream condo❤️.  You are a treasure in the industry with your work ethic and honesty!

Home Buyers - East Vancouver

"Thanks Jaco for being very professional and genuine in helping us find a home. You respected our time, were honest about the good and bad about the property, and you didn't pressure us into risky decisions. Most of all, you were quick to respond to our questions and request for info. 

I'd be happy to recommend you to anyone.   You are a rare gem!"

Home Buyers - Pitt Meadows

"Jaco was a great help in the process of buying a nice condo in downtown Vancouver.  He was always available to take us around town for viewings, providing the whole information about every single property.  He was always aware of upcoming building projects and strata plans in every place we viewed, even before the seller's agent was able to tell us about it, so we bought with confidence, and this is priceless.  

We strongly recommend Jaco to our contacts and friends.   Thank you so much for your help Jaco."

Home Buyers - False Creek, Vancouver

"Selling our home and leaving our neighbourhood of 30 years has not been easy but Jaco was on our side throughout the entire process. 

He was always professional and kind and we have been very grateful for his support, expertise and good humour.

Home Buyer Kitsilano & Seller in West End

"Jaco was our realtor when we were purchasing a condo. His calm and easy going manner, punctuality, and knowledge are great qualities. During showings, Jaco noted the good and the not so good points of the property. We were not pressured into making any quick decisions and he gave us good, sound advice. 

He provided any information needed very promptly. Jaco kept us updated when we put in an offer and kept us on track to fulfill the subjects to complete the sale. We used a home inspector which he recommended and were very pleased. 

We are very happy that Jaco was our realtor who guided us through the home buying process. 5 stars!"

Home Buyers - East Vancouver

"Jaco is incredibly patient, helpful and an absolute joy to work with."

Home Buyers - Maple Ridge


We bought a new condo and sold our old one using Jaco as the agent.  We were extremely pleased with his service and the outcome. We have worked with several agents over the years to buy and sell a half dozen properties and we can honestly say that while many of the agents were good, no one had gone the extra mile like Jaco did. 

When it came to selling our property Jaco has an eye for detail and the know-how that helped to showcase our property and get the best price possible. On the buying side, Jaco was very patient with us. We looked at dozens of properties over many months as we tested the market and figured out what we wanted in our new place. 

When we were finally ready to buy, he guided us and helped us find our perfect home! During the contracting and closing process for both buying and selling, he was there every step of way, giving us excellent advice, with no pressure.  

In summary, we would very highly recommend him for your real estate needs!"

Home Buyers & Sellers - West End, Vancouver

"This was the best experience to have such a helpful and kind agent throughout the selling process. All the questions and sometimes little frustrations from my side due to the nature of selling stress, Jaco always remained helpful.  Being a fellow South African, he understood too well and I could not have asked for a better agent who was the best.  

If anyone needs an agent, please contact Jaco Retief, he is the best and I wish him well and happy selling."

Home Seller - South Surrey-White Rock


Jaco provided us wonderful friendly and professional service for our first time home purchase. He walked us through the process, gave us the information and time we needed and provided a number of great search help as we looked for the right property and in the end helped us close on a property that was beyond our expectations. 

We have recommended Jaco to any of our friends who are looking for properties of their own."

Home Buyers - New Westminster Quay

"Jaco was very professional and detailed orientated, he made the process of selling my condo easy and straightforward - thanks to his work my condo got sold within only weeks after it was listed, highly recommended."

Home Seller - Downtown, Vancouver

"Jaco helped us sell our condo within a very short period of time.  He is a highly attentive realtor with quick response to emails and text messages.  His communication and people skills are excellent.   We are truly impressed by his genuine motivation to accommodate our comments and requests,  which is a quality we value very highly.  

We would recommend Jaco as a professional realtor who is doing his job with passion and enthusiasm, and wish him all the best and success in his ongoing projects."

Home Sellers - Olympic Village, Vancouver

"I can't thank you enough for all the hard work, dedication and the time you spent in selling my apartment, so quickly.  Jaco Retief is a very professional, attentive to detail.  Extremely honest with his clients.  He does much more than "normal" realtor would do. 

If you are looking for a truly professional Realtor Jaco Retief is the man for you."

Home Seller - West End, Vancouver

"Buying your first home is a very daunting process made much easier for us thanks to Jaco's help and genuine desire to assist us.  From day one of meeting him he was very organized, knowledgeable and personable.  He was able to help us step by step while handling our questions and concerns promptly and with ease.  

He is a true professional and we would highly recommend him.  Thanks for all your help!"
