I am pleased to write this letter of reference for Brian Rooney. We have both sold and purchased a home through Brian and his team. We were very pleased with the service we received on both transactions.
The home we sold was not an easy home to sell, due to being on a busy street and having a messy neighbour. They did an excellent job marketing this home-utilizing all available technologies and helping us prepare our home for sale. Brian was very helpful in recommending workers to hire for last minute landscaping work. I felt they all put a great deal of energy into networking with other realtors to market our home. Both the MLS and Homelife realtor tours came through our home. In addition, our home was listed on the Internet – complete with pictures and virtual tour. The people who bought our home had the opportunity to get a great deal of information about the home even before they saw it in person. I felt very confident in the advice I received regarding pricing our home after seeing the exhaustive effort Brian made in market research. In interacting with other realtors who showed our home, I felt Brian and the team were very well respected by their peers in their profession.
Once our home had sold our search for a new home began in earnest. I can only describe their efforts to help us find a new home as tireless. They not only worked hard to find us a home but also stayed positive and encouraging when it seemed that we would never find the right place. By all accounts, we were very picky in our choice and Brian never pressured us to purchase something that was not right for us. When we did find the right home he negotiated an excellent purchase price and followed through to make sure the transaction went smoothly.
In closing, I would like to state that I would have no hesitation recommending Brian and his Langley Home Team to any prospective purchaser or vendor. They are a fantastic team and do fantastic work.
Sincerely,Mark and Andrea Devitt
My husband and I decided to separate after 12 years of marriage. We have two kids and I was feeling very vulnerable. We needed to sell our family home and find the perfect house for the kids and me.
After several horrible experiences, dealing with other realtors, that basically left me with the feeling they didn’t give a damn, I met Brian Rooney through an ad he had run in the Real Estate Weekly.
Immediately after meeting Brian I realized he was different and someone I felt comfortable with.
To my surprise, when I showed up to view his listing, Brian had scheduled 4 other townhomes for me to view, in addition to the one I had called on. Due to his pro-activeness, one of the homes I viewed that night ended up being the perfect one, which significantly lessened my stress level. I knew the kids and I were going to be safe now and everything was going to be okay.
Brian had two tasks to complete. The first was to sell our joint family home and the second was to find a new home for me and the kids. After my husband met Brian's team, he too was impressed with their abilities and professionalism and hired them as well, to help him find his new home.
When the offer came in on our home, Brian was successful in negotiating an excellent price and terms on our home. While the other realtor representing the Buyers were adamant his Buyers were going to pay less, Brian was adamant they were going to pay OUR price. We got our price in the end!
This potentially devastating situation was handled so efficiently and professionally, it actually strengthened my relationship with my, soon to be, ex-husband.
We have both recommended Brian and his team to our family and friends who have also had extremely satisfying results.
If you find yourself in this type of difficult situation, the Langley Home Team are definitely the Real Estate Agents you want working for you. They were able to handle both of our needs jointly, as well as separately, while all the time, respecting our confidentiality and privacy.
Allow me a few moment to share with you my “adventure” in selling my house, As is human nature, I went shopping for the best service at the best possible price. I went through the usual interview process with several realty agents, finally deciding to go with one of the discount commission realtors.
As the old saying goes “You get what you pay for”. In three months listing with this agent I had 5 showings of my home in a time where the market was booming, where the buyers outnumbered sellers. I had almost zero Internet visibility, and the advertising in the local realty paper displayed a crooked picture of my garage door with an 8-word write up. I spoke to my realtor a total of 3 times in 3 months, two of which where solely for the purpose of pressuring me into extending his listing for another 3 months..
Finally after my contract with this realtor had expired, I called Brian back, the first realtor I had talked to at the start of my search. Within the first week I had an excellent picture of my house on the Internet with a full virtual tour, a write up which would entice the most ambivalent buyer, and a steady flow of potential buyers coming through my house. I heard from Brian on a weekly basis. A month later my house was SOLD.
I would like to recommend Brian and the Langley Home Team to anyone reading this letter. The services they provide are truly exceptional. They are true professionals, passionate about their work and an absolutely outstanding sales team. Please don’t make the mistake I made, going with the cheaper guy, as it will undoubtedly cost you more in the long run. Thank You Brian & Team!

"It is with great pleasure that I write this letter of recommendation for Brian Rooney and the Langley Home Team. They are absolute lifesavers!! They took complete control and accomplished wonders. As my tenant had left my property in a state of extreme distress, I was forced to paint inside and out, replace all floors, including tile floors. I have a full time job in Burnaby, Brian and his team took over completely. They contacted painters, landscapers and junk removal, obtained quotes and generally made my life so much easier. They got the highest price EVER for a house in that area!
I would highly recommend Brian and the Langley Home Team as they go above and beyond the call of duty. Please do not hesitate to contact me for a more detailed reference."

After 12 years and two kids I found myself single again. Just me and my Harley.
Previously my wife had met Brian and the Langley Home Team and was very impressed with their abilities and thought they would be the right team to sell our house. As usual she was right. They turned out to be an awesome team. I was very impressed with how strong they were in negotiations and yet how tactful they were in dealing with the other realtors. Needless to say we got the price and terms we wanted.
After successfully selling our joint home and finding my wife and kids the perfect new place it was now my turn.
After showing me 25 properties, they proved to me my first choice was the best choice.
This difficult situation was handled so efficiently and professionally by them, it actually strengthened our relationship. We have both recommended Langley Home Team to our family and friends who have also had extremely satisfying results.
They are definitely the Real Estate Agents you want working for you.
They were able to handle both of our needs jointly as well as separately while all the time respecting our confidentiality and privacy.
Just a quick note to tell you how much I have appreciated your help in the sale of my mother’s house after her death earlier this year. I knew at the start it would be a difficult task, of which you assured me you were prepared to handle, but it escalated into things that we couldn’t have foreseen at the time. At one point I was so distraught I was considering taking a leave of absence from my work here in Ottawa to go out there. When I told you this you offered to take on the burden that was rightfully mine, and I thank you from the bottom of my heart. The house sold in record time, I believe it was listed in mid-June and it closed on August 15th. You were able to overcome all the obstacles there were with tact and understanding. That was amazing work. We even got the price we were asking. There were quite a few mornings when I would arrive at work and find that you had already called or e-mailed me, which would have been before 6:00 a.m. your time. You really must get more sleep, Brian.
If I can ever assist you in providing a reference to attest to your outstanding work and dedication I would be more that happy to speak to anyone. Please have them call me at (613) 831-2701.
Enclosed is a small token of my thanks and appreciation. I wish you every success in your career, of which I am sure will be yours without any doubt.

Brian Rooney and his Langley Home team, were real estate agents for us in Langley. These people are polite, conscientious and well informed. When 3 different companies failed to sell our home, we attempted to sell it "by owner". After 3 months of frustration, we hired Brian's team. They sold our home when no one else could. They got the job done!
We highly recommend Brian Rooney and the Langley Home team as real estate agents when the time comes to sell your home.
