✅HAPPY CLIENT TESTIMONIAL for Kritikos Real Estate Group feeling so blessed thank you!!!

✅First off I’d like to say that my expectations of a realtor are extremely high compared to most people. I interviewed over 5 different realtors but in the back of my mind I always knew if I was serious about selling my home and buying in the same month, it would have to be Maria.

✅Her attention to detail , her lovely personality, her dedication to her work, keeping us organized with things to expect , her humour that kept us calm, her team of expertise … all made the most stressful time in our lives much bearable!!

✅Thank you so much Maria and Joanna for putting up with my OCD type personality and my husband and I achieve our biggest dream of moving to beautiful downtown Vancouver!!

There’s no one like you and we are so lucky to have picked the right boss lady to do the job!!

Our biggest fear was getting into something either was not financially sound in that it costs too much or we paid too much for the property. With the current real estate market, moving fast is necessary but can be prone to mistakes and bad investments.

We had begun our initial search for property and found your name associated to one of the ads of a property. You immediately reached out and we were quite impressed with your professionalism and enthusiasm.

We found you to be quite approachable and honest in your approach to our needs and when you were evaluating the properties. We noticed this honesty the most when you were pointing out issues with a property rather than gloss over them to just focus on a sale.

Your approach was excellent and we couldn’t have asked for a better agent particularly with having to do everything virtually. We really appreciated how you were able to handle all the details and guided us through the whole process.

We would highly recommend Maria to anyone looking for a property in the area.

At the end of October, we found Maria after clicking a few online searches. She contacted us and suggested a meet up to see what our plans were in regards to our home search. At this point we weren’t looking for anything in particular or even sure this was the right time for us to be home searching as Christmas was just around the corner. We met with Maria and her bubbly personality and no pressure approach really won us over. She touched base with us every week to see if there were more properties we were interested in to see on the weekends. We really felt that we were her priority. She was always available for our questions … email, texts, phone calls you name it. Eventually, we narrowed down our search. As newlyweds, we were wanting a space to expand. Even though we loved our one-bedroom condo we wanted a yard for our dog and entertainment space. Maria helped us to find our dream house; subjects removed just in time for Christmas. The next step was to sell our condo. Here, again, she helped to prepare us to what the market was like and to make sure our expectations were on par. Maria ensured my property was perceived beautifully and marketed to all the real estate venues. I was super happy with how amazing my suite looked in person as well as on paper. It was sold in less than a week. I want to thank you, Maria, for all the care and attention you expressed to us … to our little family.




Maria Kritikos sold our Dunbar Home and found us a unit in the Olympic village. Both transactions professionally handled with great enthusiasm and a super positive experience!




I have used Maria Kritikos as my Real Estate Agent for many years. One of my “must haves” for working with anyone in any capacity is a positive attitude. Maria is the definition of this! She is incredibly knowledegable in Real Estate, always enthusiastic about showing homes, contagiously optimistic and sees the end goal which is selling your home for top dollar. I recommend everyone to Maria for their listings. Maria is my “go to” real estate agent. She is without a doubt one of the top agents in the Lower Mainland. I am so grateful for all the successful sales and purchases Maria has mastered for me! Thank you Maria!!



Not from the Vancouver area myself, I found Maria online through a Google search and I cannot recommend her highly enough! Maria was friendly, highly knowledgeable about Vancouver and Vancouver’s Real estate. She was incredibly flexible and accommodating in scheduling viewings. We were on a short time frame and she was so on top of every minute. Maria made our short trip so enjoyable and easy. I felt so comfortable with her expertise and friendly manner. Throughout the process and from our first contact she was professional and responded quickly whether by email, text or phone call. Moreover, she is highly attentive to detail, so much so that she takes the stress and worry out of the buying process. Bottom line – I can’t imagine having a more positive experience and recommend Maria without reservation to anyone looking to buy in this stressful market. Thank you Maria, you make purchasing easy and stress free. I really appreciate all that you did and I thank you for making me feel valued as a client.



As newcomers to Canada and also first-time home buyers, we had a lot of questions about what was involved in the process of buying a house. Maria supported and guided us towards taking this important step, showing us confidence and lessening our anxiety. She was also able to identify issues that we weren’t able to see, and, when needed, Maria gave us recommendations for trusted experts. Counting on Maria’s energetic demeanour, enthusiasm and market knowledge was essential for having a smooth and happy experience as first-time home buyers.



Hope you are doing well!:) Thank you very much for all the help you’ve done and I really appreciate everything and the time you have put in to make sure the process went smoothly for purchasing this townhome. Rona and I are very thankful to the two of you!! 🙂 We are very happy that we were approved and will be able to afford the home we liked. And this wouldn’t have been possible without each of you putting your time and energy into this:) Thank you all so much!! :-)



We were referred to you by another agent. You immediately called us and spoke enthusiastically about helping us. The next day we met and selected you as our agent! Last 35 years we have worked with different agents and found you to be very congenial, responsible, accountable, very responsive to our requests and questions beyond what others have done. We were confident with your help we will find reasonable apartment to suit our need. Indeed we will refer any family and friends that need an excellent real estate agent because you work hard to get the job well done. We appreciated your lovely house warming gift box containing very sensible and thoughtful items. We will enjoy them for sure. It was great knowing you and Joanna and we will keep in touch.



As first home buyers, we had a lot of concerns and doubts going into the process. It was very important to us that we find agents that would not only represent our best interests but that we could also really trust. Maria and Joanna kept us calm when things got stressful and gave us little nudges in the right direction when we needed them. They were always available to answer questions and checked in with us the whole way through to make sure we were informed, comfortable and ultimately getting the result that suited our needs. They are super friendly and approachable which really helped to alleviate that daunting feeling that can come with making an important life decision. Would recommend to anyone looking for reliable, honest representation.

I highly recommend Maria Kritikos of Kritikos Real Estate Group to act as your realtor. I made the decision to sell my home and then the unforeseen happened – the pandemic. I contacted Maria and was immediately relieved to hear her positive approach. She is informative, professional, with a sharp business sense in getting the job done. I had multiple offers on the first day of showing. It sold, getting the price I wanted and the deal closed within 3 weeks. A happy ending for all involved.

Vancouver, B.C.

My first experience with The Real Estate Sisters — Maria and Joanna Kritikos — was an unusual one. I needed to find a home in Vancouver, but I was part-way through a two-month trip to India and Nepal. I found “the one” when I was in the middle of a trek to Everest base camp and about to be without cell phone service for several days. Reason to worry? You bet. But did I need to? No. I had full trust in Maria, who’d been willing to talk to me via phone at crazy hours, taken my family and friends through the condo I wanted to buy, and painstakingly gone through and summarized documents I couldn’t open given the terrible wifi. When I finally got service again, I found out my offer had been accepted.

I have since used The Sisters two more times: to purchase a larger home (when, once again, I was out of town for the final negotiations) and to sell my old one, once the purchase had gone through. I can’t speak highly enough about the work they do.

I first discovered The Real Estate Sisters online. I signed up for their service, which sent listings that met my search criteria directly to me via email. Within a few weeks, Maria had reached out to me to see if she could offer any more help. I didn’t need it then, but I did eventually.

Maria and Joanna were both fantastic to deal with. They made the process of buying and selling as stress-free as it can possibly be. They were open and candid about their strategies, which made me feel much more confident about the process. When I was selling, for example, I’d get detailed summaries about each of the potential buyers — and they were also available and willing to answer any questions I had. I was never made to feel like an inconvenience. In fact, I always felt like a priority, despite the fact they were juggling multiple clients at the same time.

I would recommend The Real Estate Sisters to anyone.

Hi Maria,

Thank you for helping us buying the property we want.

Through the very first Zoom virtual talk with you, your professionalism and enthusiasm made us to determine very quickly to choose you as our agent.

While working with you, we found you to be quite approachable and a very warm and welcoming person and very enthusiastic about what you are doing.

Your approach was excellent and very gentle with good understanding of our needs and thoughts. We had been really enjoying the process of viewing the properties and discussing about them with you. You were very patient with our criticism about the properties we viewed and you were very honest when you evaluated the properties and pointed out the issues with us instead of just pushing us and focusing on finishing the deal.

With the current real estate market, moving fast is very important but can be prone to mistakes. However when we were working with you, we have so much peace in our hearts because we were so impressed by your high efficiency and very detailed oriented character. Your professionalism makes you always work fast to give us advice on the properties we showed interest in. You worked very hard to get the necessary documents we need in a very timely manner.

With the property we had successfully finished getting the accepted offer, we were astonished by your quick recommendations and the way you negotiated with the seller’s agent, as well as the details you were handling amazingly. We got the accepted offer exceedingly out of our imaginations.

Thank you so much for all the hard work you have done for us. We would highly recommend you to anyone who looks for a property.

Best Regards,

Annie and Michael

If you're looking for someone to get the job done, guaranteed she's the agent for you. Maria has secured us as lifelong clients and we're beyond grateful to have such an incredible and trustworthy representation. Highly recommended!

1st time home buyer - Yaletown

Maria is 10 out of 5 stars. My experience with her has been wonderful, she made the process very easy and enjoyable, especially for a first home buyer like me. She is always on the hunt to find the best deals for her clients and considers all aspects of her clients needs. Maria has been responsive and excellent since the first phone call! She recommended a mortgage broker for me who was also extremely helpful. She had appointments laid out for me for 2 days and after a disappointment from the first offer she persisted with extraordinary effort and found a property for my needs on the same day (at 11 pm). SHE IS THE BEST !!!!!! I highly recommend Maria and her team.


Gabriel Bussieres

My partner and I were looking to buy our first condo together and we are so happy that we found Maria. As our agent during our search, she was highly available, helpful, and caring towards our needs. She went the extra mile during showings by asking important questions to the sellers' agents. The process of finding our condo, negotiating a price, and completing the necessary documentation was seamless, and she referred us to a wonderful helpful mortgage broker and notary. We would highly recommend Maria if you're looking to buy a home!

As a real estate photographer, it was a joy to work with Maria and her team.

They pay attention to every small detail and set up their listing in a way that makes my job easier and more fun, which helps me get stunning photos and video. They are professional and highly knowledgeable about what has to be done to sell your house as quickly and for the highest price possible.

I'm looking forward to collaborating with Maria and her team once again. Strongly recommended.

Rafal & Karina

Our experience with Kritikos Real Estate was extraordinary. Working with Maria you feel very well taken care of. Maria is always there and available for you to answer any question or address any concern. She is using modern tools in order to make communication more convenient for you. Before moving to the next step in the process, on top of phone conversation, Maria records a presentation and walks you through every step in document signing, which we found very useful. We highly recommend working with Maria if you are looking to purchase or sell your property.

Love my new house and love Maria for helping me find it! Moving from Ontario and buying a house in BC is a little daunting. Maria helped every step of the way in the purchase process.

Dr. Peter Ward

My wife and I decided recently to sell an apartment at UBC, and buy a large condo on Vancouver westside. In the course of looking for a new residence for ourselves we stumbled upon Luxmore Realty on Arbutus and 15th, went into their offices and met Maria Kritikos. We were both really taken with her enthusiasm, knowledge and engaging personality. We decided to get her to help us with our transition. It became clear she worked extremely hard, was experienced, and always pleasant to deal with. We achieved our objectives of selling one property and buying another, with Maria as our agent. My advice to real estate buyers and sellers is to seriously consider using Maria as your agent, as she is a pleasure to interact with, and you will be most pleased with her service.
