Welcome International Clients

Nicholas Meyer welcomes international clients to the services provided by Downtown Suites Ltd. This is his message to international real estate buyers:

“Hi, this is Nicholas Meyer. I’m sitting in my office in downtown Vancouver. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our international clients.

Behind me is a map of the world, and literally, we have clients from every corner of the world using our services, and we’re very happy to be able to help them, and help place them in one of the most stable real estate markets, probably, in the world.

Certainly, it’s a rising market, as it continues to do so, over the last several decades.

It’s a wonderful place to come and bring your money, park it.

We don’t have coups, we haven’t got, eh, any sort of political problems happening, other than the usual scrapping between the Liberals and the Conservatives, and so forth.

It’s a very stable environment, as you know, banking is number one.

We’ve got very good interest rates, currently.

The market’s not at all like what’s been experienced south of the border. We’ve got pretty strong banks, and we’re not at all threatened in the financial market.

So, interest rates are still very very low, with prime at about 3% at the moment.

Half a point to a point above prime, 3-4% for floating mortgages. Very reasonable rates. We’ve got very strong rates coming in. So all in all, it’s a very good investment climate.

Slight correction in the market this year, because we’ve had such a huge increase in prices over the last year or so, but, we’re going to continue this carrying on much as we are, I don’t think we will see much decline at all, if anything, over the next decade.

Definitely, we’re going to see prices go up again and again. So, I think it’s a good place to be.

West side of Vancouver is very strong, definitely a lot of Asian buyers coming in. We’re having buyers from everywhere, we’re getting investors from Russia, from Eastern Europe, from Australia, Japanese, Chinese, English, lots of English people are coming in, especially when the pound is so strong. Very good place to come.

In any event, we’re here to help you, and we’re very bullish about Vancouver’s market.

Just to repeat myself, I’m very happy, and very understanding to welcome you to our community here. You’ll feel very much at home. We’re very open to helping people from different cultures, we have different people working in the city office.

The controller, actually, is from Iran, and speaks fluent Farsi, so we have someone who can talk to people who need that. My banker speaks Hindi and Bengali, Ivy in her office speaks Mandarin, and if we need another language translated, we can arrange that for you.

We have a very versatile and a very helpful staff here, who will certainly make you feel very welcome.

So please contact us and we’ll certainly help you with your acquisition.

Thank you.

Nicholas Meyer”

All dealings with Nicholas have been businesslike and have reached a successful conclusion. Throughout our dealings he was honourable and ethical, making our relationship positively conclusive.I have known Nicholas for approximately 15 years.

I do not believe 20 years have gone by since we started doing business together. I also remember your being prompt and being so human to help us when we got worried. Thank you for being you. More than providing real estate service, you have been a friend to us.
Nicholas has been my client for over 20 years, as his financial planner and it has been a pleasure working with him over the years. I have found Nicholas to be very extremely knowledgeable ethical, dependable diligent and client focused. He is extremely honest in giving his opinion, even if it means walking away from closing a sale. I have learnt a lot of things in Real Estate from him. We also have mutual clients,and have heard nothing but praises from these clients of the service he has and continues to provide to them. Ihave also recommended clients to Nicholas, since i wanted them to be looked after by the “BEST”

I was a US owner of two income rental condos in Vancouver a few years back and was having some problems with the person who was managing my places. I had to end that relationship, and not knowing the real estate arena in Vancouver, I went to the internet. Nic had (still has!!) the most informative and wonderful videos of himself videos of himself addressing different aspects of the real estate market in BC. I called, left a msg, and in under a minute, he returned my call. Long story short, Nic helped me deal with some sticky issues, recommended some contractors to me, for which he did not charge me, and he ended up selling both of my condos for me. I can’t say enough about Nic and his crew. He has over 25 years of experience, is extremely personable, and really knows his stuff. I felt I could trust him, and it turned out to be true. How often does that happen?:)
I am very pleased to confirm that I have known Nicholas Meyer for over 10 years. During this time he has proven to me to be a person of high integrity and I have no hesitation in recommending him as a Realtor.
