“Not putting your client’s interest first is like
cutting the flowers and watering the weeds”

- Sam Emam

“After contemplating which commercial broker to hire to handle the sale of my building, I interviewed 3 brokers mostly from larger firms. Sam Emam kept in touch with me over the years so I interviewed him also. His client-focused approach, marketing background and market knowledge was the difference for me. Sam put himself in my shoes and understood my challenges right away. Sam did an amazing job under pressure. He exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend him to anyone selling their industrial or investment property. He’s very capable of getting you the highest possible sale in the shortest amount of time.”

“Sam and his team worked extremely hard in getting our building sold very quickly. Sam’s client-focused approach was in full display from the start. His diplomatic approach in working with purchaser’s agent was the main reason our building was sold for the most price in the shortest amount of time. Sam hand-delivered documents to our family each and every time, answered all our questions during and after the sale. We highly recommend Sam Emam to other Chilliwack owners in selling their multi-family or investment property.”

Steven Wong

“Due to my car accident, I was unable to continue to run my millwork business (Art’s Custom-Made Furniture) of 35 years. Our group hired Sam Emam to sell our industrial building at 5851 Beresford Street in Burnaby. Sam listened to our needs and challenges and crafted a plan that worked perfectly for us. Our building sold for a great price in a fairly short period of time. I was able to retire from work, focus on my health and enjoy life. Sam is a great friend now and I’ve referred him many deals. His loyalty and client approach along with his robust marketing program makes him the right commercial real estate agent.”

Art Kasseberi

“We were here at Burnaby Bag and Burlap 5291 Imperial Street and 5289 Lane Street, we were very satisfied in the manner of how Sam Emam sold two of our properties. He was very polite and never pushy as some salesean can be. He provided us with a notary we were pleased with and have used several times since. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of his services. Thank you Sam for your hard work.”

Gary Vanderwell

“Sam marketed and sold our building at 7444 Edmonds in Burnaby. The process was complicated due to environmental challenges, but Sam stayed committed during the whole process of environmental testing and kept the purchaser engaged. Sam kept us informed of each step during the one-year process and got the job done. We highly recommend Sam to handle the sale of your building.”

Rick King and Rick Deaves

“Sam Emam was a pleasure to work with during our recent sale transaction that took place in 6841 Palm Avenue, Burnaby. His knowledge of Burnaby’s industrial market is second to none. He was very patient and diplomatic during the entire process which was not as smooth as we hoped. Sam was able to handle ongoing issues with the challenging buyer with extreme professionalism and courtesy and he kept us informed of every development right away. We highly recommend Sam Emam to sell your building as he always puts his client’s needs first.”

Susanne Fleischer Kierszenblat

“Our family made a decision to sell our 30-unit apartment building “Villa Roma”, we interviewed many agents from national firms but we picked Sam Emam and his team to handle our sale. Sam was chosen because he understood our challenges in the first meeting. He was patient, understanding and showed us a tailored plan for our needs and unique challenges. Since we held the building for 40 years, the day to day management was becoming a challenge for our family to handle. Sam worked extremely hard to market our property and got us a great price. Our challenges were solved, we’re able to move to the next phase of our business venture and enjoy life. We highly recommend Sam Emam and his team to sell your multifamily apartment building.”

Pierina and Luigi Guizzo

“I was searching for a commercial building to run my business right away and be part of a potential future multifamily development site in Burnaby. It seemed impossible at first as I was frustrated with my search. After meeting Sam Emam, he put forward a program and communicated with me weekly to achieve my business and investment goals. We found a property that I can use right away and it has future medium density multifamily development potential. Sam negotiated a phenomenal price on my behalf and we’re very happy with the outcome. Sam has the will and the skill to get the job done!”

Brian Fong

“Sam’s great attitude and market knowledge was the differentiator for me to list my mixed-use building with him and his team as opposed to larger firms. Sam and his team worked extremely hard to prepare the due diligence package, used all marketing channels to attract qualified buyers and negotiated a great price for me. I was informed every step of the way from listing to the closing day. I’m happily retired now and looking forward to enjoying my retirement years ahead. Based on my experience with Sam, I highly recommend him and his team to sell your commercial building as he has the will and the skill to get the job done in a professional manner.”

Jerzy Kaminski

“I had the pleasure of listing my property with Sam and his service exceeded my expectations. He provided an exceptional level of customer service with weekly updates, always making himself available for any questions or concerns, and acting in the utmost professional manner. He creates a comfortable, friendly, and amicable agent and client relationship. I was glad he explained things in a way I could understand. Sam’s passion for real estate is evident in his in-depth market knowledge. I would highly recommend Sam to anyone buying or selling commercial property”

Antonella Gismondi

“Sam Emam put us in contact with a knowledgeable local investment sales advisor in Ottawa that got the job done for us. We were extremely satisfied with the sale of our 77-unit multifamily portfolio”

Owner of 77 Unit Multifamily Portfolio in Ottawa

“Sam’s calm demeanor and professionalism made the experience a positive one! Selling a multimillion-dollar commercial asset with development potential is stressful at the best of times, but Sam’s approach from the beginning to the end minimized the stress and made me feel empowered by the process. Sam’s understanding of the market was excellent. The buyer and their residential agent were in some uncharted waters with this purchase, but Sam’s steady hand, professional approach, and honest and straightforward style took a very complex sale and navigated it through to completion. Well done!”

Jens Sigvardt

“I had the recent pleasure of working with Sam Emam. While purchasing a multi family apartment building in Burnaby. My family and I have associations with multiple real estate professionals while building our investment portfolio. From our experience, I found Sam Emam to be very professional and knowledgeable throughout the entire procurement process. Sam’s attention to detail and level of patience was outstanding. Sam Emam was readily available to answer our questions and to offer guidance.

It is without hesitation that I recommend Sam Emam to any party looking to sell or purchase commercial real estate.”

Carlo Aquilini

“Sam provided us with excellent brokering skills when we purchased a multifamily building situated in the Hastings-Sunrise community. His hard work and attention to details allowed us to close on the property. I believe this deal would have collapsed with a less sophisticated broker at the helm. I would recommend his services to both vendors and purchasers alike.”

Jackie Ward

“We found Sam Emam to be a trusted, professional, an amazing negotiator. He’s a trusted advisor for his clients and very knowledgeable in Burnaby market. Sam handled all the moving parts of each deal like a true professional and with a great attitude.
We highly recommend dealing with Sam if you’re thinking of selling
or buying multifamily buildings or development sites.”

Maria Silva

“Sam Emam sold our mixed-use property in Maple Ridge. Sam did a great job of keeping the deal on track from start to finish. A couple of unusual requests and issues appeared along the way, Sam was able to meet buyer’s needs and keep everyone focused on the main goal which was to move towards closing. We’re very happy with the result and would highly recommend Sam and his team for any of your commercial real estate needs.”

Nick Scardillo & Salvatore Cristiano

“After decades of proudly owning 3012 Edgemont Blvd, I decided to sell my commercial property. Sam Emam provided us with all relevant and recent market data and a proposal which included his custom marketing program. During the sale process, the real estate market changed drastically due to an increase in interest rates which put pressure on property values. Sam and his team kept laser focused on getting the property sold by aggressively marketing the asset in a changing environment. Also, Sam helped us lease an empty portion of our property which increased our net income resulting in more buyer interest. Finally, after 9 months of hard work, Sam and his team completed the deal. We thank him and recommend him to other commercial building owners as he demonstrated professionalism and hard work during our sale.”

Rose Young

“Sam has been handling our family’s transactions for the past 8 years. We found Sam Emam to be a trusted investment sales advisor. Sam handled all the moving parts of each deal for our family like a true professional and with a great attitude. We highly recommend dealing with Sam if you’re thinking of selling or buying multifamily buildings or development sites.”

Steve Silva

“Sam is a great agent because he always goes the extra mile in taking care of his client’s interests. He follows up, returns calls and emails promptly, conveys what’s needed, and keeps his client informed. A consummate match-maker, and sterling person. We recommend him highly.”
