Royal LePage Westside broker/owner Michael Bertrand and managing broker Barbara Bell-Olsen recently welcomed five new salespeople to their Vancouver office.
Lily Lam has sold more than 450 properties valued at over $1 billion during the last 30 years.
Originally from Hong Kong, Lam started her real estate career in Vancouver in 1984 and flourished. In 1992, she was headhunted to manage a team, leading more than 200 sales executives in the first real estate agency in Beijing, China.
With her fluency in Cantonese, Mandarin, Chiuchownese and English, she achieved phenomenal success throughout Asia, the company says. She returned to Vancouver in 1996 and re-established herself as a top producer.
Stanley Lam, Lily’s son, was born and raised in Vancouver. Following in his mother’s footsteps, Stanley became the third highest-producing Realtor in his brokerage in his third year as a real estate agent. He now specializes in new developments, residential and commercial real estate, property management and luxury Westside homes.
Matthew Chiu was born in Hong Kong and raised in Vancouver. He purchased his first home in 2016 and was intrigued by the real estate market. His diverse and well-rounded background in economics, market trends and lifestyle management gave him a solid foundation to kick-start his career as a real estate agent, the company says. In 2018, he was in the top 10 per cent of all Realtors in Greater Vancouver.
Edmond Fu was also born in Hong Kong and moved to Canada in 1994 when he was 10-years-old. He says he focused on joining Royal LePage Westside because Bell-Olsen is well regarded by industry veterans.
Donald M. Fuller is returning to residential real estate in Vancouver, where he was licensed from 1993 until 2006. For the last several years he has been managing international real estate investments.
