"We very much enjoyed working with Gaetan while looking for an investment condo in downtown Vancouver. He is business like and thorough as well as being very amiable, a pleasure to work with. We recommended him to our very good friends already!"
Cheryl and Richard
"Hardworking, honest and professional real estate agent. Could not ask for a better realtor. Highly recommended."
"I highly recommend Gaetan as a Buyers agent in a Tough Sellers market. I met Gaetan outside a condo he was showing me, and the listing agent was a no-show. Gaetan apologized profusely on his behalf and offered me a drink for my time wasted. This kindness and courtesy made my decision to hire him as my agent. He showed me condo after condo, no pressure. I learned a lot about buildings, depreciation reports, strata docs, making competitive offers based on real value, never selling me out for a quick sale, steering me away from a bad building even when I felt that was a good condo and changed my mind after I saw the awful depreciation report. Good call Gaetan! He knew about recent sales, reputations of buildings, their managements etc. I really felt like he was a family member looking after my interests. He was patient, addressed every doubt, accepted change of mind, and restarted looking again, without the slightest fatigue, right through to conveyancing and possession. THANK YOU Gaetan!"
"In my dealings over the years with a number of realtors bother in Canada and oversea, none has come close to Gaetan. He is exceedingly professional in everything he does, thorough, diligent, courteous and he always, always had my interests at the forefront. At no stage did I feel he wanted me to close a deal to satisfy his needs and he wanted me to be happy with my purchase.
When it came time to actually negotiating a purchase, he advised me very well as to the value of the property and did the research required to make a successful offer whilst not getting caught up in the frenzy that is the current market. I ended up with a house which I am extremely happy with and within my budget and I will recommend Gaetan to anybody who is looking to either buy or sell a home, without question."
"Hello Gaëtan, John and I would like to express our thanks and appreciation for your hard work in getting our house sold. We both enjoyed working with you and found you to be professional and very accurate with your analysis of the housing market and the strategies we should employ in order to get the house sold in the time- frame we'd set. Thank you for the great result and we look forward to working with you in the future. We will not hesitate to refer any of our friends to you as we are extremely satisfied. Sincerely,"
Julian and John
"A pleasant and patient man. Gaetan will spend days, months and yes, even years by your side until you find the perfect nest. When you choose to embark on your search for the perfect Vancouver condo with Gaetan, you also choose to be pampered by your real estate agent. When you visit an area or listing for the very first time with Gaetan, you can trust that you are in the company of a friend. We all know as well as the next buyer that trust is crucial and unfortunately, rare. Gaetan offers this rarity with grace and ensures that you have his undivided attention at every encounter.
Seldom do I indulge in a hearty review; but if anyone deserves praise, Gaetan sure does. As such, I leave you, Reader, with my most sincere and firm endorsement of Gaetan Kill, Vancouver Real Estate Agent."

Downtown Vancouver has a pulse of its own. From the bustling shopping corridors, to the scenic parks, to the exciting nightlife, downtown has something for everyone. The different neighbourhoods downtown each have their own personality, creating a strong sense of diversity and offering a unique experience every day. Real estate downtown includes highrises overlooking the water in Coal Harbour, cozy waterfront condos in West End, rustic heritage buildings in Yaletown, and funky industrial lofts in Gastown.
Living downtown allows you to easily enjoy shopping along Robson Street, strolling along Stanley Park's seawall, playing beach volleyball in English Bay, and visiting the local pubs along Granville Street. With so many options of where to live and things to do, downtown Vancouver is sure to keep you busy!
Yaletown is one of downtown Vancouver's newest and trendiest residential neighbourhoods, but has a rich history rooted in Vancouver's early industrial era. Once known as the city's warehouse district, Yaletown was primarily zoned for light industrial and commercial use until the 1980s.
The charming heritage workshops have since been converted to various commercial, retail and residential spaces that are still very reminiscent of their former use. Exposed brick, concrete floors, loading bay doors, and large wood beams are all evident throughout Yaletown real estate now and remain a huge selling feature for this neighbourhood. The cobblestone sidewalks are now lively with restaurants, barber shops, yoga studios, and many other trendy retail stores. One walk through Yaletown and you're bound to fall in love with its charm!
Luxury condos in high rise buildings overlooking the harbour with a picturesque mountain backdrop - this is Coal Harbour living. Widely acknowledged as downtown Vancouver's upscale neighbourhood, Coal Harbour offers a classy lifestyle complimented by Vancouver's tranquil surroundings.
In the heart of Coal Harbour is Vancouver's financial district, making it an ideal neighbourhood for business executives and thus fueling the demand for real estate. Coal Harbour is also home to Canada Place, one of Vancouver's premier event facilities, where there is always something new and exciting happening. Along the edge of the water lies the seawall, a perfect place to mingle with others and watch the ships bob in the water while taking an afternoon stroll on your way to Stanley Park. Coal Harbour is truly a gem of Vancouver.
Gastown is Vancouver's oldest neighbourhood and a prime example of how much Vancouver values its roots. From the cobblestone sidewalks, to the vintage lampposts, to the famed Steamclock, Gastown exudes a rustic charm embedded in a rich history, and is even designated as a National Historic Site of Canada. Many of the buildings in Gastown are designated heritage buildings and have been beautifully restored over the years to maintain their unique aesthetic qualities while making improvements to their overall structure and design.
Real estate in Gastown tends to blend in with its surroundings, including funky industrial lofts overlooking the train tracks, and sprawling open concept live-work spaces. Trendy street-level retail and restaurants, combined with its historic significance, make Gastown one of Vancouver's most popular tourist destinations and places to live.
The West End is a quiet neighbourhood located to the west of Vancouver's downtown core, with English Bay to the south and Stanley Park to the west. The West End is comprised mostly of midrise apartment buildings located along quiet, tree-lined streets, creating a surprisingly serene neighbourhood for downtown living.
The West End also offers some of the best shopping and food destinations in Vancouver, most of which are located along Denman Street and Robson Street. As you approach the southern edge of the West End, English Bay opens up in front of you, presenting an idyllic beach setting to bike alongside or go for a swim. Living in the West End provides the comforts of quiet and privacy complimented by world-class amenities and everything else that downtown Vancouver has to offer.
Perhaps one of the most rapidly changing areas since the early 2000s, Mount Pleasant is an eclectic area known for funky shops, trendy bars, and some of BC's most famous breweries. Located along the south eastern tip of False Creek, Mount Pleasant is just minutes from downtown, and features a number of quiet parks along with the bustling shopping corridors along Main Street and Cambie Street.
Mount Pleasant's gentrification is complimented by an assortment of remarkable heritage buildings, creating a unique blend of old and new hard to find elsewhere in Vancouver. There is also a strong artistic community in Mount Pleasant, and it is frequently the venue of various community events and art festivities. The passionate community and close proximity to downtown make Mount Pleasant an excellent spot for anyone to settle.
Lined with fine sandy beaches gazing towards downtown and the North Shore mountains lies Kitsilano. Frequently compared to some of San Francisco's beach communities, it's no wonder "Kits Beach" has been named one of the top 10 best city beaches in the world by various international travel magazines.
Kitsilano is one of the West Side's most desirable neighbourhoods, particularly among those who value the community's emphasis on health and fitness. It is not uncommon to see group fitness or yoga classes on the beach, along with an assortment of organic food options nearby. If you're looking for a neighbourhood that promotes active and healthy lifestyles with close proximity to downtown, Kitsilano is the place for you.
Fairview is likely the most well connected neighbourhood in the West Side. Perched on the southern edge of False Creek, Fairview provides direct access to the Cambie Bridge, Granville Bridge, and Burrard bridge, making it an ideal location for anyone working downtown or on the West Side. Because Fairview is on a hill, hence the nickname "Fairview Slopes", many of the condos and townhomes here have stunning views of downtown and the North Shore mountains. Take a peek into some of Vancouver's best shopping stores along Granville Street, or pop down to Granville Island to peruse the local crafts and food market. Real estate in Fairview is an incredible option for anyone who wants to be close to downtown and also have quick access to the rest of Vancouver's marvels.
