"" Im not just there for the paperwork,” says Anna Litvak Joseph of BC Prime Real Estate Group. Litvak’s natural progression into the real estate world came about five years ago and she’s never looked back. With a career in sales since age nineteen, a mineral makeup store chain, plus selling restaurant franchises, her experience and interest in real estate grew simultaneously.
“I always knew real estate was my thing; I was always interested in houses, structures, lands, creating passive income and wealth through real estate rentals,” she says. “When it came to self employment, it was clear that I wanted to continue working for myself.” “It comes very natural to me. My husband and I have moved thirteen times,” she laughs. “We have renovated, bought and sold, and gutted places. I have a lot of first-hand experience personally, going through many types of properties and transactions myself.”
Litvak’s client base are mainly families looking to upgrade to their dream homes, families who need to find the right fit to their growing families, and families who relocate. She offers a variety of destinations based on their desired lifestyle and budget plan, including Vancouver, Burnaby, Surrey, Langley, and the Tri-Cities. “Many of my clients are moving to B.C. because they are considering a job change or dreaming about better weather with less snow and cold.” Litvak has posted videos on YouTube to target folks looking at living in these areas, and a quick Google search has helped many find her. “Another big portion of my clients speak Russian or Hebrew, as do I.”
With a small team that includes husband Tal Joseph and colleague Svitlana Pelletier, Litvak feels they can minimize the hassle and upheaval of relocating to a new community. She also “moves a lot of people out of Vancouver into the suburbs,” especially with the market in its current state. If a growing family “love the mountains and nature then the Tri-Cities or Maple Ridge are ideal, or for people who like brand-new neighbourhoods and new schools, Willoughby in Langley or Burke Mountain in Coquitlam would be perfect.” Litvak believes it’s very important to consider “the community you are going to fall into, what ethnicities live there, and taking time to consider your wants or hopes. For some people, an hour commute to work is not a problem especially if they are used to it, from moving from another large city, for instance. In this case A nice house in the suburbs is perfect. For some a fifteen-minute commute is maximum and living by the freeway is a must so we would focus on specific areas.” When it comes to condos vs. houses, Litvak says “I am dealing a lot with buyers and sellers, focusing mostly on detached homes. Land is land, and a smart investment beyond just lifestyle.”
Litvak’s Love it or Leave it Guarantee means that if you change your mind within the first twelve months of moving in, because you fell in the wrong community than what you were hoping for, or the house or neighbourhood is not what you thought it would be, her team will sell it for free and help you move elsewhere. This helps alleviate the fear some buyers face of being stuck in the wrong place. “We dedicate a lot of time listening and understanding the clients needs and lifestyle, going through showings and analyzing the correct items of importance, we will make sure we find the best home that meets the budget or we sell it for free (on the listing agency portion side) for you. Our job is to make your life as stress free as possible.”
For Litvak, the care she provides her clients with “all starts with listening. I don’t just put people on an automated system. I put a lot more thought into their needs, what things will look like in five years, and in ten years. It’s not cheap to sell real estate. Clients pay commissions, pay property transfer tax, and need their investment to grow enough to cover all those expenses. I want to make sure the choice they are making is the best one for them on the lifestyle aspect and to be a smart money investment. I have never had a client buy something and regret it.” Helping families make calculated moves is Litvak’s passion. ""
