“Neal was very helpful with our home search from start to finish. He offered great advice during the decision making process and had a genuine concern for our happiness and well being. He went above and beyond the standard expectations of a real estate agent and was always available to answer questions or explain procedures. Without a doubt I would recommend Neal to anyone looking to buy in the sea-to-sky corridor.”
- Mike Riddle, Olympic Silver Medalist
“Neal jumped into a difficult situation at Rivendale, filling in for a tested veteran Simon Hudson half way through the project. The results speak for themselves. Neal sold the second half of the development in six months helping Rivendale become the first development of its size and nature to sell out in Squamish in over five years. And they said it could not be done! We recommend Neal Sikkes for any of your real estate transactions.”
Diamond Head Development
" We were absentee owners of a condo in Squamish that we really needed to sell. Neal went above and beyond in helping us and ensuring a sale was completed. He had to deal with our renters and our property managers who were the most uncooperative and interfering people I have ever met. If I had to deal directly with them I’m sure it would have ended in a shouting match or worse. Neal took it all in stride and was the complete professional. He never had a bad word to say about anyone, and did whatever it took to work with or around these people."
"The buyer of our unit was also very challenging to deal with. We had what was essentially a completed deal, but the buyer did not comply with the addendum of the contract and let the offer lapse. He then came back with a new realtor and wanted to start the process all over again. Only through Neal’s hard work and constant attentiveness did this deal get completed."
"Speaking of constant attentiveness, Neal was always available to us whether it was 8:00 am or 10:00 pm. My emails and phone calls were always answered within 15 minutes! Unbelievable!"
"I’ve sold probably 10 homes in my years so I know a little about realtors and the process, and I have never seen such a hard working, effective professional as Neal Sikkes. I have never met the man, but would surely like to. I would recommend Neal to anyone, anytime, for any sale. He is the best. I cannot recommend him any higher."
-Ms. Gail Malden
"What a pleasure it has been dealing with you for the past months Neal!
I couldn't have asked for a more patient, dedicated, professional REALTOR! Potential buyer(s) and vendor were always considered fairly with both parties taken into consideration. Too, you even made update calls or took care of business on your vacation/holiday/family times. You are truly one in a billion+!!! Can anyone ask for more? I cannnot. I will definitely recommend you to others selling their home with commendation!"
"Neal recently sold our house and we couldn't be happier. He gave clear directions on needed updates, great input on managingour tenants through the sales process, and good strategic advice on how to price the house. The property was sold very quickly- even when faced with a challenging local market. Neal was very professional and precise- which is greatly respected and appreciated. Neal made it for a stress free experience and we would highly recommend his services."

"My name is Rory Bushfield and I hate paper work. Neal Sold my place in a snap and I didn't have to read to much! Neal is a gem and a killer salesman. He got it done quick and easy and I didn't have to do anything. Neal is Young smart and on point. Next time I need anything in the real estate world Im calling Neal Sikkes! plus he's young so if you have trouble in 30 years he will still be around to help a brother find some important forms."

Buying A Home
“Neal made the process of buying our first house easy. Everything was well documented and it was clear what he needed from us and by when (walked us through the paperwork journey). It was nice to have someone trust worthy who I know looked out for our interests.”
“For Neal, I felt his job is more than finding you a good house, it’s about finding you the right home. He takes the time to get to know you, discovers not only your wants, but your needs and then delivers high above your expectations. Buying a home is about trust; I felt Neal dedicates the proper amount of time to build that relationship before moving forward. I will never have the need for another Real Estate Agent again.”
"We were very happy to have Neal as a realtor. He was great right from the start understanding our objectives in making a move work for our family. He took care of us to make sure that we wouldn't be unhappy at any step of the way. He went over and above and we felt 110% comfortable the whole time. He is professional, knowledgeable, understanding, and calm and level headed in his approach which we loved. We would highly recommend Neal and use him again for any real estate transaction."
"We both thought that Neal's service was fantastic. Neal listened to our needs and thoughtfully took into consideration while finding us the perfect home. He didn't want to sell us a place that we would grow out of fast with a growing family! He answered all of our questions that we had as new home-buyers. We liked that Neal took us to all the listings we had selected and then had a wildcard property up his sleeve for us to look at and ultimately that was the one that we ended up wanting and getting at a great price! We couldn't be happier in our new home!"
-Bev L. & Cory H.

"Neal did a great job assisting me with the purchase of my new home"
"Neal Sikkes is a very good broker . He is helpful and patient with me , an indecisive buyer . In fact , I first became his client over 2 years ago , he showed me properties I passed on because of fear of the high market . Since then the market has gone up further and I've wasted tens of thousands of dollars on rent . Of course prices could have gone the other way but my point is during that period Neal E-mailed me the deals in my price range , in an unpresured way kept me appraised of the places I might see myself in , and what was happening with the market values . When I was ready Neal immediately got me back into the view ings , a variety of places and prices so that within a month my sons and I had decided on a condo downtown . Neal was especially helpful negotiating the price , getting the improvements I wanted done , and then connected me with bankers , inspectors , and lawyers . Seemingly impossible and daunting and now it's all complete , painlessly . He is friendly and I am a grateful client."
“I am writing to express my complete satisfaction with Neal Sikkes as a realtor. Throughout the entire process Neal was professional, conscientious, and motivated. Moving from one province to another is a big move and we always felt as though we were his only client. Neal's knowledge of the local market and his key contacts in the community helped us in our search for our dream home in Squamish, BC. After patiently going through listings and explaining BC real estate details with us, he made sure we got the best value purchase for our new home! Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Neal Sikkes to help you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better Realtor to guide us through the process. You can bet that when we're ready to get another place, we'll be calling you first!'
“I had the great pleasure working with Neal to find our new home. I had been living in Whistler and was looking to move to Squamish where homes are more affordable and the community more family oriented. He knew what my needs and preferences were. We looked at 2 places and I bought one of them. It was exactly what I was looking for in terms of price, space, location and aesthetic. Neal also got me in touch with a Mortgage Broker that he knew and gave me back the bonus incentive he received from the broker which made me really happy. Neal genuinely cared for me as if I were a close relative while still maintaining the highest level of integrity and professionalism. Neal is who I recommend to anyone I know who is looking for a new home.” Kristen C.
“Neal has the unique balance of attention to detail, business sense and follow through. He's clearly amongst the few Real Estate agents who look after "our" interest both short and long term. Thanks Neal for your continued support."
"Neal's experience in real estate makes me feel secure in my decisions. He has assisted my hu sband and I with multiple sales/purchases over the past few years." Megan and Myles Ricketts
