About James Garbutt

My goal as a REALTOR is to develop trust and lasting relationships with all my clients.  To achieve this, I provide knowledge, expertise and a superior quality of service with ongoing communication every step of the way.  I focus on your individual needs and will always act in your best interests. Essentially, it is my objective to make your next sale or purchase an enjoyable and rewarding experience. My success depends on it!

As a REALTOR, I believe there is no substitute for aggressive promotion, sharp negotiating, knowledge on local neighborhoods and a thorough comprehension of current market conditions. I have a clear understanding of what it takes to successfully market your home. As first impressions are crucial, I want to ensure that your home presents itself at its best.

Once your home is ready we will then begin to implement a marketing strategy that is specifically designed for your home. My goal is to bring through as many qualified buyers to ensure that we sell your home for the highest possible price.

In addition to my Real Estate License, I have a Bachelor of Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing from Simon Fraser University. Taking this educational background in combination with my professional experiences have allowed me to develop an impressive portfolio of skills and expertise which I apply to every home I market.

I am passionate about this city and find that I am very positive and enthusiastic about where I live and work. I have no doubt there is something I can do to help you with your next purchase or sale.

You’ll quite often find me spending time with my family and friends. I’ve been married since November 2010 to my wife “Diana”, we have a crazy dog “Reese” that we adopted in July 2011, and we have an adorable son “Caden” who was born in August 2012.

When I’m not in the office, I enjoy staying active. In the summertime, I absolutely love being around the water. Whether it’s kiteboarding, fishing, surfing or even just floating around, if the sun is shining, this is what I want to do most. I also enjoy golf, hockey, volleyball and running with my dog Reese. In the wintertime, I love to snowboard and participate in the annual Polar Bear swim… but like any Vancouverite, when it’s raining and cold, I’d prefer to travel to a hot place where the water is clear, the sun is shining and the beers are cold.
