What Are Past Client's Saying About Hafez?


I would like to say a big "thank you!" for your tireless hard work, your effective marketing methodology, and most importantly your abundance of professional experience and judgement. We also felt very well served throughout this process thanks to your transparent and timely communications. The fact that we negotiated both offers during the height of pandemic, particularly while you were under quarantine procedures, speaks volume how effective of a communicator you are.

Through past encounters and dealings with you, be it the pony rides at the community carnivals or the ...

Hafez is an absolute pleasure to work with! His deep knowledge of the industry, and vast experience working in UniverCity at SFU, made the process of buying and selling in a crazy market so much less stressful. He always made us feel like we were his top priority and ensured that all the details - big or small - were completely taken care of. This is our third time working with Hafez and we can't recommend him highly enough.

Hafez Panju is by far the best realtor that I’ve ever worked with. He recently helped my son, a first-time home owner, buy his first condo. Hafez gave great advice, made the process seamless, and seemed to be available 24/7. He knows the market and consistently went above and beyond for us. My son looks forward to recommending him to all of his friends when they are ready to purchase their first home.

His professionalism, knowledge, honesty, integrity and hard work ethics were very much appreciated and respected.

Hafez, thank you for helping us with the purchase of our new home at SFU. We liked your approach, specifically that you were Always available for any question we had. And that’s in addition to your dedication and expertise. We felt supported every step of the way, which was very important not just because we were first-time buyers but also that we were quite skeptical about real estate at first.

When we decided to buy a condo at SFU for our daughter we worked with Hafez Panju who found the perfect unit for us that ticked all the boxes.  As we were new to the experience of buying property on the campus, Hafez took the time to explain the process and answered all our questions thoroughly.  He is very knowledgable about all aspects of purchasing and living on campus and was able to give us valuable insight into home ownership in this unique environment.  Hafez was always available and responded to our emails or phone calls right away but never left us feeling pressured.  He...

Hafez is an absolutely amazing relator, who goes above and beyond. We have now bought and sold with Hafez. Hafez goes out of his way to ensure everything is in order and all questions/concerns are addressed (some of these questions we never even thought of).

My brother and I used Hafez off a recommendation from my Dad's co-worker to buy our first home! And he has been excellent at helping us navigate this complicated purchase. As well as great advice when he got a bad feeling to make sure we found the place that is right for us. Now we haven't got the keys just yet but it has been an easy and smooth process and I'm sure the final stages will be as well. He is quick to respond to any questions and even quicker to arrange showings that worked around our busy work schedule so we didn't miss out! I don't have much experience in the home buying process,...

And now, I am confident more than before to say you are one of the most customer obsessed realtors.

Your frequent communication, promptness, professionalism,...

We are residents of Ontario and were looking to buy some property in Burnaby. As we were new to the BC real estate market we really wanted someone that we could put our faith in and that would look after our best interests.

When we first contacted Hafez we immediately felt that he was very knowledgeable about the local real estate market, history on the area and market conditions.

Hafez gave us a very good understanding of the differences in the two markets and was there step... by step with us throughout the entire buying procedure even though we were thousands of kilometers away during the...
