About UsWe are always striving to set a higher standard for real estate practices. Better service, better systems—better everything. We are doing it one REALTOR® at a time—with careful hiring, intensive training, and seasoned management support in all offices. Macdonald Realty is bringing agents over to our way of doing business: helping people go through one of the biggest and most expensive transitions in their lives more smoothly, with more information, less stress, and greater ease.
These are not just words in a mission statement hung on a wall somewhere. This is what we actually do —over and over again. That's why, once you've worked with a Macdonald Realty agent, the next time you go through one of those big life transitions, you won't want to do it without us. Our clients keep calling us back. They send their friends, and then, twenty years later, they send their grown-up kids to us. That's who we strive to be: the agents you'll send your kids to, the agents you are excited to refer your friends to, and the agents you can rely on.
We do all the work,
so you can just go home.
Our HistoryMacdonald Realty was established in 1944 by John Macdonald and Al Steel as a boutique residential brokerage firm specializing in properties on Vancouver's West Side. The company's modern era began in 1990, under the leadership of Lynn Hsu and a new management team, who were dedicated to creating an integrated real estate organization.
The timing coincided with Vancouver's emergence onto the international stage. In a few short years the city went from "undiscovered jewel" to "international hotspot", perched strategically on the Pacific Rim and attracting visitors, celebrities, and investors from around the world.
During the nineties, Macdonald Realty expanded throughout British Columbia through a series of mergers, acquisitions, and strategic affiliations.
Building on our established strength and experience in residential sales, the company has expanded its business interests to include commercial sales and leasing, property management, strata management, development and project management, project marketing, and mortgage brokering and lending. Through our network of offices, Macdonald Realty is committed to providing the best realty services in British Columbia.
