Eric has over 17 years of full-time experience passionately serving clients in the growth and protection of their Vancouver real estate assets. He has a particularly fond focus on Downtown Vancouver, Kitsilano, and UBC (all areas he has had homes in.) A consistent flow of warm testimonials and his record of repeat and referral clients go hand in hand with the numerous awards earned throughout his career. These include many years as an MLS Medallion Club member (top 10% of Realtors in the REBGV), and multiple sales awards with RE/MAX and Engel & Völkers.
He is very firm in the belief that your choice of Realtor® is crucial; that the ‘fit’ and advisory trust between you and your professional are likely to be the single most impactful factors in just how successful you can be. Selling a client's home quickly for the highest price via cutting edge exposure and marketing is of extreme importance, as is finding the best home in the shortest time for the lowest price: you should expect these objectives to be imperative to your Realtor®. But of greater importance to Eric is that, as your transaction closes, you are absolutely confident in both the decisions that you made and counsel you were given. A hallmark of Eric's testimonials speaks to just that; that while marketing, negotiation, and service were all very well-executed, the clients clearly felt that above all else, their best interests and comfort levels were front and center... ALWAYS.
“I would like to thank you for the outstanding customer service you provided with the sale of my home in Vancouver this past August.
“YES”, seems like it’s your favourite word. Anything I asked help with you said, yes, and you went the extra mile; finding a carpenter to help me refresh my unit; a painter at the best value; helping me stage the condo and putting a blow up mattress in the bedroom for the pictures. I believe service is a dying part of customer service, but you showed me the exact opposite. You always went the extra mile, and did it with a smile. It’s because of all of your beautiful marketing and knowledge of the market, the unit sold in 48 hours, and over ask.
Thank you for being the BEST realtor."
We often find testimonials cliché and not always representative but felt one necessary with Eric as we value him, his insight and consider him an extension of our family. We’ve known and worked with Eric Coulombe for several years and in that time he has assisted our family with not only real-estate transactions but advice, support, follow up and clear understanding of our needs and wants. We have worked with numerous realtors over the years but I can honestly say, Eric is the only one we’ll use in the future. His wealth of knowledge, his incredible network of support, and his attention to detail is unparalleled. What separates Eric is his passion to do everything he can, both pre and post, to ensure his clients and their families are fully supported and their happiness is looked after.
Buying a property is an intimate and often very personal experience. Eric is someone we trust, who leads with integrity and honesty, who cares for your family and their well-being. Eric is an incredible listener ensuring all details are understood and someone who will do everything he can to ensure you have everything you need for your journey. His insight and understanding of market conditions, trends and forecasts is thorough and detailed. But it’s also the intangibles such as quality of life, impact to family and personal well-being that Eric stresses and focuses on to ensure we are prepared. All of these attributes set him apart from the rest.
Eric is positively unique. A great human being with a gigantic heart and undying willingness to help you and your family achieve happiness with whatever that looks like. We not only have found a Realtor for life, but life long friend as well. Eric, thank you for all you do for our family and making this process exceptionally easy. You are simply the best and we’re so fortunate for you and your continued support!
Working with Eric and his Engel & Volkers team was a wonderful experience from start to finish. Throughout the process of selling our home Eric was extremely easy to work with and consistently provided excellent advice and guidance. We honestly can’t say enough good things about Eric and his team, who took such good care of our home, and really focused on getting the whole process right, not just the end result. Eric’s marketing plan for our rather unique property worked perfectly and all of the advertising and marketing materials were beautifully put together. The end result of all of Eric’s hard work was a quick sale for above asking, exceeding all expectations. Eric’s rugged good looks and charming demeanour are just icing on the cake.

...not just “going along” with our whims. I think we were probably Eric’s most challenging clients as our needs kept changing and he kept shifting to meet those needs without ever complaining, ignoring or firing us! We finally arrived in our dream home...

Eric helped me buy a condo on Commercial Drive way back in 2004. In 2015 he helped me sell it. Eric’s professionalism and compassion was highlighted for me by the way he helped me negotiate with my existing tenants, who thought they might want to buy the place. When that didn’t work out, he went above and beyond to work with their needs (physical limitations that made changing the apartment while they still lived there very stressful for them) while we did the necessary remodelling. I wanted the best price for my apartment,but I also wanted to take care of my tenants, who had become friends. Eric’s approach was thoughtful, kind and professional. So much so that my tenants/friends joked about claiming him as family.
Once I finally took the place to market, we had pre-emptive offers before it was even formally listed (Eric had done a lot of pre-marketing through his network). After one weekend of showings, we had multiple competing offers. Eric guided me through making the best decision and going back and forth a few rounds between prospective buyers. In the end we sold for well over asking, so much so that the buyer had some trouble getting the appraisal approved (Eric worked that problem too, with a positive outcome). I also had some complicated steps to go through because I had moved to the US (bringing in all sorts of fun non-resident tax issues) and here he really stepped up to get me the right advice, chase down people when things looked like they might go suddenly south and finally getting everything resolved with a minimum of fuss.
But! It’s not just that Eric gets results, he is also unfailingly clear, honest and direct and clearly cares most about his clients being happy with their outcomes rather than his potential commission. He brings a strong sense of integrity to all of his interactions and impressed me with his knowledge at every turn. Working in the high stakes, fast moving real estate market in Vancouver could have been terrifying and stressful, with Eric it was a genuine pleasure.

We have used Eric for the purchase and sale of our homes over the past several years. On both occasions we have been extremely impressed by the level of professionalism, service and pride that has been represented. We were fortunate enough that on both occasions we were able to purchase and sell our home quickly, which is a true testament of the level of industry knowledge and service that was provided. Eric is a true professional and made the process of both purchasing and selling our home not only easy and painless, but enjoyable. We highly recommend Eric for any of your real estate agent needs.
I wanted to thank you for the seamless transaction of purchasing my condominium…When I made the decision to purchase, you went the extra mile making sure everything was in place for me. It is hard to do a transaction from abroad and you took the fear of the unknown out of the equation. Your knowledge and expertise, with your reassuring voice made it easy as one, two, three. I would highly recommend you to anyone who was purchasing from far away or just next door. Your professionalism and expertise in the real estate market speaks volumes!”
