Our Story

Our story began in 1944, when Macdonald Realty was established by John Macdonald and Al Steel. Specializing in residential properties on Vancouver’s Westside, our company grew and evolved over the decades. Then, in 1990, a new chapter in our story began under the leadership of current owner and CEO Lynn Hsu. That vision involved creating a full-service real estate company, capable of offering a much wider range of services to meet our clients’ needs. By the end of the decade, through a series of mergers, acquisitions and strategic affiliations, Macdonald Realty had become among the most well-known real estate companies in British Columbia.

As is often the case, timing is everything. In our case, our company’s transformation coincided with Vancouver’s rise on the world stage. Perched on the Pacific Rim, attracting visitors, celebrities and investors from around the world, almost overnight the city went from being an undiscovered jewel to an international hotspot — and one of the hottest real estate locations on the planet.

Since then, our company has continued growing. We know British Columbia, from its big cities to its small towns, with offices in the province’s major real estate centres — including Vancouver/the Lower Mainland, Whistler, the Okanagan, and Vancouver Island. Beyond BC, through connections and a trusted network, our reach stretches much farther: across Canada and around the world.
