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.
In 2015 Macdonald Realty opened an office in Shanghai's bustling Jing'an district and launched a Chinese website macrealty.cn, which is the only Canada-focused real estate website behind the Great Firewall.
