Andrew and Jill Hasman Article in Top Agent Magazine

"Andrew and Jill work under the umbrella of RE/MAX. Both of them aim to create long-term relationships with their clients and have succeeded in building their business primarily on past clients and referrals. “We have a boutique business mentality, and we’re always thinking about how to best serve our clients. It’s not about how many homes we sell or how many clients we have. We want to provide an elite level of service, which is why we’re hands-on and involved in every step of the process.” Their long record of excellent results and client satisfaction stems from years of experience and confidence in their methods. “We have seen the ups and downs of the market, and we bring a lot of knowledge to the table. Most importantly, we never put pressure on our clients to make a decision.”

What propels Andrew and Jill to give every transaction their full dedication is their desire to help people. “There are many personal factors and circumstances for why people decide to buy or sell, and some of them are not always positive. That’s why we take every situation and put together a strategic game plan that solves the client’s real estate problem, while always remaining empathetic to their situation and ensuring their complete confidentiality.”

Having lived and raised their children in Vancouver, the couple knew they had to find a way to help their local community when the COVID-19 pandemic shut down countless businesses around them. “We decided to shine a light on how the pandemic impacted our area. We spoke to various business owners and posted a series of videos to our YouTube channel in order to raise awareness and funds to support them and get them through this difficult time.” "


Re/Max Andrew Hasman featured in a Vancouver Is Awesome profile
Have you seen our profile on the Vancouver Is Awesome website?
We were recently the topic of an article on Vancouver is Awesome after Andrew earned the RE/MAX Luminary of Distinction career achievement award earlier this year. The award is exclusively offered to RE/MAX realtors with over 20 years in the Real Estate industry.

Celebrating over 28 years in Real Estate

During our 28 years in the business, we (Andrew and Jill) work as an ongoing resource for anything clients wish to know about the real estate landscape. Hands-on in our work, we actively engage with and support clients in their real estate planning through our extensive real estate market expertise and connections. Our success at making clients feel like extended family means clients frequently return to us when purchasing a new home after many happy years in a location we originally helped them purchase.

Our philosophy has always been to provide clients with the highest standard of service and we always say, “it makes the most sense to work with an area specialist”. The expertise that we bring to the table has been developed over years and years of working in the same market. If you are looking to buy and sell in Vancouver we are your specialists.


SOLD - this well-kept character home at 3555 W King Edward Ave, on generous 47 x 122 lot. Great location close to Dunbar shopping, schools and parks. Private rear yard. Lots of options with this property.

City of Vancouver Character Retention Program

Did You Know Character Retention is allowed on pre-1940 character homes in the city of Vancouver?

Depending on the lot size you can build multiple strata units allowing the developer to sell the units separately instead of building a single-family home. The city allows a Floor Space Ratio of .85 vs only .7 on Single Family. The program has been around for a couple of years and it’s just now getting more attention by developers.

Welcome to our July Market Minute update! In June we saw strong real estate sales in the Vancouver area. 

The main story right now is a lack of supply - both east and west Vancouver are seeing a shortage of family homes, which is causing upwards price pressure.


On the west side, there are 36% less single-family homes available in comparison to this time last year, and 36% less townhouses and condos available. As a result, this means prices are on average 4% higher than in the early summer of 2019.

On the east side, there are 39% less properties available than in Summer 2019, which has lead to a price increase of 8%.


With many people staying home vs traveling for vacation, we aren't seeing the usual summer slump this year. We are still listing a lot of properties, so it's definitely a good time to sell, and also to buy.

We hope you stay safe & have a great summer!


Is now the time to buy or sell a home?

Our Personal Perspective

BC’s economy is now starting to open up which is great news. Nobody knows how this Covid 19 is going to play out going forward so for everyone, we are all just trying to figure out how to get on with our daily lives while staying safe and healthy.

With Real Estate being deemed an essential service by the Provincial Government, Jill and I want you to know that we are here for all our clients during this uncertain time to answer questions and help those looking to buy and sell. Yes, you can buy and sell a home during Covid 19 in a safe manor. Our industry has adapted over the past two months in the way we show, market and sell homes.

Over the past few weeks Vancouver has seen a nice steady uptick in real estate activity. While we are no- where near the 10 years sales averages of the past, we have seen a healthy bounce off the dismal April numbers. It feels like buyers and sellers are now getting more comfortable with getting out and getting on with their lives.

For those looking to sell, right now we see an ideal opportunity in many segments of the market. Record low housing inventory is great if you are looking to list your home. You have far less competition and many more buyers chasing far fewer homes listed for sale. This imbalance has resulted in many multiple offer scenarios and continued price stability in our market.

For home buyers, the past two months have seen fewer listings but also fewer buyers meaning in some cases more time to make a buying decision and the ability to negotiate. Money is dirt cheap so the cost of a mortgage is rock bottom. Why wait until all the buyers return. Buy now while money is cheap and you have the ability to negotiate.
To sum up we would say that timing the market is very difficult. It’s the right time to buy or sell when it’s right for you. We think that despite Covid 19 Vancouver’s housing market remains stable .

If you have any questions about the market in your neighborhood reach out and call or email us anytime.

Stay safe and stay healthy
Andrew & Jill Hasman

The Vancouver Real Estate Market is seeing a significant decrease in sales thanks to covid-19. In April, detached house sales on the westside fell by 41%. Eastside home sales were down by 23%.

There are also many less properties listed for sale than usual, with property listings down over 40% in April. Many sellers have even removed their previously listed properties from the market due to concerns over covid-19. 


With the upcoming easing of restrictions, May will be a busier month - buyers and sellers are already beginning to come back to the real estate market. We are getting busy, and have sold several properties recently - please see the video to learn more about our recent property sales in the Kitsilano, Shaugnessy, and Killarney neighborhoods. 


 If you have questions, Jill and I continue to market all our properties with safety in mind, offering virtual open houses and tours. Feel free to give us a call at 604-657-7936.

We're doing a series of videos to help shine a light on a few of our favourite local vendors we don't want to lose during COVID-19. A 20% drop in business is a lot for the big companies, but a 20% drop for local small business is often the end for them. 

Small businesses are the backbone and soul of our communities. It’s more important than ever that we support local businesses at this time. 

Jill Hasman chats with Herve Martin, owner of The French Table, a lovely bistro at 3196 Main Street about how Covid-19 has impacted his restaurant. 

They are open for take out every day from 5-8pm. 

Currently, take out represents 6-10% of their previous sales, but Herve emphasises how important it is to maintain a connection with his patrons. 

Watch the video to hear Herve's top two menu items to be ordering! 

Stay tuned for more videos on supporting Vancouver independent businesses. 



We're doing a series of videos to help shine a light on a few of our favourite local vendors we don't want to lose during COVID-19. A 20% drop in business is a lot for the big companies, but a 20% drop for local small business is often the end for them. 

Small businesses are the backbone and soul of our communities. It’s more important than ever that we support local businesses at this time. 

In this video, Andrew Hasman is standing socially distanced with Justin Ault of Hapa Izakaya for a short interview.

Andrew: Justin, tell us how COVID-19 has impacted your business?

Justin: Well, Andrew, like a lot of businesses it’s had a huge impact. We had to lay off the majority of our staff, keeping a few of our kitchen staff for delivery orders. It has been a whole new ball game, delivery is something we’ve never done as we put a lot of effort into the presentation of each dish, and that’s just not the same for take-out in a box. However, delivery orders are our lifeline now and we have to do what we have to do. It has taken adjusting. 

Andrew: It’s a new reality…For anyone watching watching this video, tell us a bit about the restaurant. 

Justin: As our name says, ‘izakaya’ is a Japanese style pub serving small plates -tapas, if you will, and most people share them family style. We have sushi on the menu, but we’re not a sushi restaurant -lots of cooked food beyond fish. The atmosphere at Hapa Izakaya is normally full of energy and fun! Hopefully we can reopen in a couple months. 

Andrew: If I’m a first time diner, what are two menu items that are must-haves?

Justin: Only two, that’s a tough one! I would say the Ebi Mayo -deep fried prawns with slightly spicy mayo, and the Stone Bowl Rice available in four different varieties, something for everyone. 

Andrew: I can speak from personal experience as I have ordered from Hapa Izakaya a number of occasions and the food is fabulous!

For anyone considering ordering in tonight, please consider ordering from Hapa Izakaya in Yaletown. They’re available on Uber Eats, Skip the Dishes, and Door Dash. Together, let’s make sure to continue to support small businesses during this difficult period of COVID-19.


Home buyers and sellers adjust their activities in March amid challenging circumstances

Metro Vancouver’s* housing market saw steady home buyer demand to begin March and a levelling off of activity as the month went on and concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak intensified.

The Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver (REBGV) reports that residential home sales in the region totalled 2,524 in March 2020, a 46.1 per cent increase from the 1,727 sales recorded in March 2019, and a 17.4 per cent increase from the 2,150 homes sold in February 2020.

Last month’s sales were 19.9 per cent below the 10-year March sales average.

“The first two weeks of the month were the busiest days of the year for our region with heightened demand and multiple offers becoming more common,” Ashley Smith, REBGV president said, “Like other aspects of our lives, this changed as concerns over the COVID-19 situation in our province grew.”

Daily residential sales on the region’s MLS® were 138 on average in the first ten business days of the month. In the final ten business days of the month, the daily average declined to 93 sales.

“Many of the sales recorded in March were in process before the provincial government declared a state of emergency. We’ll need more time to pass to fully understand the impact that the pandemic is having on the housing market,” Smith said.

“In recent weeks, REALTORS® have been working to help and guide their clients through this uncertain period. Many people have understandably chosen to put their home buying or selling plans on hold for now. Other people have more urgent housing needs and we’re trying to work with them to address these needs in the safest and most responsible way possible.”

There were 4,436 detached, attached and apartment properties newly listed for sale on the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) in Metro Vancouver in March 2020. This represents a 10.4 per cent decrease compared to the 4,949 homes listed in March 2019 and a 10.8 per cent increase compared to February 2020 when 4,002 homes were listed.

The total number of homes currently listed for sale on the MLS® system in Metro Vancouver is 9,606, a 24.8 per cent decrease compared to March 2019 (12,774) and a 4.5 per cent increase compared to February 2020 (9,195).

“Realtors were named among the province’s list of essential services last week,” Smith said. “This means that we have a responsibility to do what we can to help residents meet their housing and shelter needs while strictly following the most up-to-date public health orders and physical distancing requirements from our health officials and government agencies.”

For all property types, the sales-to-active listings ratio for March 2020 is 26.3 per cent. By property type, the ratio is 21.1 per cent for detached homes, 33 per cent for townhomes, and 28.9 per cent for apartments.

Generally, analysts say downward pressure on home prices occurs when the ratio dips below 12 per cent for a sustained period, while home prices often experience upward pressure when it surpasses 20 per cent over several months.

The MLS® Home Price Index composite benchmark price for all residential properties in Metro Vancouver is currently $1,033,700. This represents a 2.1 per cent increase over March 2019, and a 1.3 per cent increase compared to February 2020.

Sales of detached homes in March 2020 reached 852, a 61.1 per cent increase from the 529 detached sales recorded in March 2019. The benchmark price for detached properties is $1,450,700. This represents a 0.7 per cent increase from March 2019, and a 1.2 per cent increase compared to February 2020.

Sales of apartment homes reached 1,179 in March 2020, a 35.1 per cent increase compared to the 873 sales in March 2019. The benchmark price of an apartment property is $687,000. This represents a 2.9 per cent increase from March 2019, and a 1.4 per cent increase compared to February 2020.

Attached home sales in March 2020 totalled 493, a 51.7 per cent increase compared to the 325 sales in March 2019. The benchmark price of an attached unit is $791,800. This represents a 2.5 per cent increase from March 2019, and a 0.9 per cent increase compared to February 2020.



Can you sell a home during the Covid-19 pandemic?

Here's Our Personal Perspective

How our world has changed in just a few short weeks. For most of us it means being confined to our homes only popping out for some fresh air, exercise and picking up groceries.

Jill and I want you to all know that during this crisis we will be working from home, taking calls and answering any of your inquiries. We think that for the most part, sales and new listing activity will slow down dramatically. That being said, there are always some home owners that have to sell for time sensitive reasons. For those few we want you to know that we are here to help. There are precautions that can be taken to minimize the health risk to all involved when it comes to listing and marketing a home.

If You Have to Sell

We are now implementing Virtual Open Houses, 3D Video tours of homes and procedures to ensure safety when it comes to in person viewings of a property.

During the pandemic there will be NO public open houses. All in person viewings will be handled in a controlled environment to ensure buyers enter a home 1 group at a time and use hand sanitizer prior to entering the home. Buyers will also be instructed to avoid touching any surfaces in the home. All buyers will be asked a series of questions to ensure they are not feeling unwell or have travelled in the past 14 days. Our clients & the public’s safety are our top priority during this challenging time.

For the majority of home owners and buyers, real estate may be far down on your list of priorities right now. We get it.

For most we all want to stay healthy and see this crisis behind us as soon as possible.

Jill and I want to wish everyone to stay safe and healthy and look forward to connecting with you soon.
