You can't go wrong choosing Owen Bigland as your realtor. He's professional, personable, and extremely knowledgeable about Vancouver real estate. I highly recommend his YouTube channel to people -- it's his greatest testimonial. You'll get a clear understanding of his insight, experience, and personality. If you want an award-winning realtor with a proven track record of success, credibility, and transparency, then Owen Bigland is your man.
We were looking for an experienced realtor who really understood the Vancouver real estate market and could sell our home for top-dollar so we could upgrade to a better neighbourhood. We learned about Owen through his Youtube channel and he is what you see! He's very knowledgeable and presented us with how he would price the home to get top-dollar and advised us on what we can fix up to better attract buyers. What really stood out to us about Owen was his dedication and his negotiation skills. Owen was always punctual and spent lots of time communicating and negotiating with opposing agents to get us the best possible price on both the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home. When it comes down to closing a deal, lots is at stake, emotions could be high, and time is often not on your side. We had a situation where the deal was not moving in our favour and Owen advised us to walk away even though that meant he risked not getting his commission. This is evidence that Owen truly works for you when you hire him as your realtor.

Besides being a fantastic realtor, Owen is also an outstanding source of knowledge for anyone looking to brighten their financial future. Not only did he work tirelessly in my favour to negotiate a great price on my first property, but Owen also educated me along the way on all other facets of financial success. As a first time homebuyer it was obvious he was there for my best interests! Working with Owen was a truly excellent experience, and I would highly recommend him to my friends and family. I look forward to working with him again for my next purchase!
It can be hard to choose a realtor if you don't already have a personal relationship with one. I've worked with a realtor before, but was looking for someone new who matched my investment philosophy and had experience with operating a rental property. I chose Owen because he has a giant collection of helpful Youtube video blogs and his hours of video content indicated that he matched my investment philosophy. As I started to work with him, I was happy to discover that he's the same helpful, disciplined person in real life as he is online. Will work with him on the next property.
Owen Bigland is a real pro and knows the Vancouver real estate market inside out. He worked extremely hard for us (even on Superbowl Sunday!) in purchasing our first investment property in Yaletown. Furthermore, since Owen is an experienced investor he was able to guide us through all the hairy details of the BC Residential Tenancy Agreement. This helped us seamlessly acquire our first tenant at a good rental rate and it has been very little effort needed as landlords. This is exactly what we wanted while collecting monthly rent cheques.
Purchasing a property can be a nerve wrecking endeavour but we felt confident knowing Owen narrowed down our search to only quality condos with good stratas. There is no doubt that we will call upon Owen again once we are ready for our next property purchase.
Lance & Sharon
We were first time buyers and felt confident knowing the extensive experience Owen has in Vancouver real estate would make the process seamless. We are now in our own home and the feeling is great.
Andrew & Andrea
Owen's knowledge of the real estate market and his passion for what he does is greatly evident as he helped us through our recent purchase transaction. Not only is he articulate but he's also down to earth and attentive to our inputs and concerns. His service does not end on completion date but he takes the time to check in and works to maintain communication. It was a pleasure working with him.
Owen has been amazing from beginning to end. We have been following his youtube videos since before we moved to Canada. As first time home buyers, he took the time to walk us through the entire process and ensured we understood what we were getting into. All the apartments Owen showed us were in line with our requirements and under our budget. He also gave us ideas on renovations as well as contacts of contractors. He went above and beyond to help us out with our bank mortgage too. He was responsive, professional and negotiated a brilliant deal for us. He has also published a book and updates his video blog regularly. He is our go-to real estate agent for all our future property needs and we gladly recommend him to anyone who wants bang for their buck in Vancouver.

As a first time buyer, I couldn’t have asked for a better guide. Owen’s knowledge and professionalism were valuable assets. I’d have no problem recommending his services as a buyer’s agent.
Through probably one of the most difficult real estate transactions, buying my condo in New Westminster, Owen was extremely patient and flexible and walked me through each step of the process with a wealth of knowledge, insight, and professionalism. He also brought well thought out strategies based on his decades of experience on the selling side when I decided to sell my condo because I had to move across the country for work. In both transactions, the results were about as good as you can get and I believe Owen played the largest role in that happening. I feel extremely fortunate to call Owen my Realtor.
The fact that Owen has a video blog and now has ventured in to publishing successful investment strategies goes to show the willingness to stake his reputation on what works in real estate. Thats the type of realtor you want to have on your side.
Owen is a complete professional that you can have the utmost confidence in. Owen was highly recommended to me by a friend and he exceeded my expectations. He sold my townhouse for a record setting price, netting me far more than I thought possible. I have since used Owen twice more for the purchase of my new home as well as an investment property. He’s very knowledgeable, experienced and an expert negotiator. I have since recommended Owen to friends and family… he’s the best!
Owen made us feel so comfortable throughout the entire process of listing our home for sale and selling it. His knowledge and enthusiasm for what he does really made him stand out from other Realtors we had interviewed. We appreciated him answering our questions along the way and keeping us updated every week. We would definitely use his services again and tell our friends and family as well!
