“Wise men speak because they have something to say,
fools because the have to say something”


You will probably find my approach a little bit different than many of my colleagues. When I promote my listings I do not promote myself more than the listings. Over the many years over 90 percent of my business is from repeat client and referrals from other Realtors and past clients. You may have noticed that even in this website there are no photos of myself. I have always dedicated myself to working for clients rather than promoting myself. You can expect to be treated with respect with your goals being met rather than my putting my needs ahead of your wishes. In my real estate world the customer is always right and number 1.

I’d like to share a few unsolicited testimonials to give you and idea of what service and professionalism you can expect.


This letter is to inform you how impressed I was at the smooth transaction of the sale of my house was.

I met Mr. Zayonc last year and decided that I would use his services when I came to sell. I had complete trust and confidence in him due to his being professional, well mannered and well spoken.

As you will appreciate, his personality was such that I had no worries even though I was not in Vancouver personally. Would you please convey to him my best wishes.

Last September I was in North Vancouver to arrange for the sale of a Heritage home. After interviewing several agents, my daughter and I chose Rick Zayonc because he understood our love of the home, its value, the type of buyer we wished to contact and, he showed an interest in the history of this Heritage Home.

He proved most vigilant regarding care of the property after we returned to Manitoba. He kept us well informed during each step of the arrangements for selling the home.

We have been very pleased with the service which Rick rendered. He completely understands his clients’ needs. He proposed and delivered the highest selling price…over $20,000 more than any other agent suggested. We regard him as a valuable member of your team of real estate agents.

I would highly recommend Rick and your office to anyone buying or selling property.

Thank you Rick. Now that the sale of the condo is finalized, I want to thank you wholeheartedly for all you have done for me. From the beginning you had my best interests at heart and kept me informed every step along the way and served and a “buffer” between --------- and me. I felt I could trust you completely and that has helped me along the way. I wish you well in your business and may the Lord bless you and your Family.

Rick…Thanks for going way beyond the call of duty for Pat and I. We appreciated your expertise and guidance very much. Best of luck to you and your family.

To the Sutton Group Management. I am writing in regards to Rick Zayonc and my appreciation for the top notch service he provided as I recently purchased a property in downtown Vancouver with his assistance. I have to tell you that it was the smoothest purchase I have ever made due to Rick’s professionalism, integrity, patience, follow-through, and willingness to find the perfect property that best meets my needs. He was exemplary in his ability to accommodate my needs and make my purchase as easy as possible. Due to Rick it was a truly effortless purchase.

I am a US resident and someone who was not very familiar with the Vancouver area and real estate. Rick thoroughly educated me on the downtown, neighborhood options, and Canadian real estate laws. His expertise allowed me to make a sound decision and my purchase and to feel comfortable that I was making a smart real estate choice.

I look forward to hopefully purchasing another property through Rick again someday, and I wish that all real estate agents conducted themselves with the same caliber that Rick provided me, Thanks, again,
