Born and raised on the West Side of Vancouver, Gregg Close is a genuine Vancouverite and one of the most successful and experienced Realtors the city has seen. Initially Gregg spent his formative business years at the helm of a high-end furniture company, where, over a 14-year period he built a successful enterprise, which operated in no less than 28 states. Since then Gregg has focused his well-honed business acumen on Real Estate, where he is known as the West-Side’s ‘View Home’ specialist.
With more than 20 years of Real Estate experience, Gregg’s unmitigated success has seen him enjoy numerous accolades including a Lifetime Achievement Award and an induction into the Remax Hall of Fame. Indeed during his time at Remax he was ranked as high as a Top 15 Realtor in Canada and within the Top 75 Realtors in the World.
For 2012, Gregg has aligned his experience and expertise with Sotheby’s International Realty Canada. A natural fit with both having a wealth of local knowledge and global experience, the relationship will no doubt produce further achievements, further accolades and allow for a more comprehensive client experience.
Gregg’s expertise and opinion is in constant demand from both developers and clients alike and this newly found partnership will no doubt lead to future success for both himself and Sotheby’s International Realty Canada.
With the knowledge, expertise, and guidance from his father, a highly awarded realtor of 20+ years, Mackenzie Close has been able to merge both refined business acumen and the use of cutting edge technology that the 21st century Real Estate Agent needs. His philosophy for Real Estate is simple: to combine good old fashioned hard work with outstanding customer service. From start to finish Mackenzie takes his clients through the buying or selling process, listens to and asks direct questions, and formulates a marketing strategy based on your needs.
Mackenzie believes that honesty, clear lines of communication in both ‘up’ and ‘down’ markets, teamwork and mutual respect are key to building long term client relationships and that these relationships are far more important than making a sale.
With a home renovation background, Mackenzie can assist when it comes to providing all trades needed to get your home ready for sale, or to start a renovation on your newly purchased home; in essence he is a genuine ‘Full Service’ Realtor.
You will no doubt find both his professionalism, attention to detail and work ethic to be far above the industry standard, a characteristic that has resulted in many loyal clients and the respect of his peers.
