It was a pleasure to work with Rod. We were looking for a second home in an upscale townhome complex in the Abbotsford area. There are not very many of these, and being that we were out of country purchasers, we had a few opportunities slip through our fingers. That was until we met with Rod. He kept us up to date with new listings and even managed to get us through two units before… Read more “Frank and Ellie Durksen”

Karina and I were first time home buyers. We had initially been working with a few other real estate teams and their ‘buyer’s agents’.

He was patient with us and took the time to explain to us what was going to be required to purchase… Read more “Philip and Karina Van Neuewenheizen”

Rod spent a lot of time with us before we signed on to be his clients, taking us to see a few places prior to the decision to sell our home.

After accepting an offer, Rod proved to be a great negotiator and provided us with… Read more “Shawn and Ashley Martens”

Just want to express how thankful we are to Rod Friesen for his tireless efforts to sell our home.

I was introduced to Rod as someone who was an expert at assisting home buyer’s in finding the right home. Rod did just that. He was able to locate a home for me, listed by another real estate agent before the home was even on the market. I was the first to view the home and the first person to write an offer. In the end, Rod’s effort had paid off. His dedication to me,… Read more “Barbie Hamson”

My husband and I were first time home buyers in a very crazy market. We are so glad that we decided to work with Rod to purchase our first home.

Rod had seemingly endless patience with us and we never felt pressured or rushed to put an offer in. He pointed out things… Read more “S. and K. Groenwold”
