Specializing In Acreages And Farms
LANGLEY & ABBOTSFORD
AMY BRATTEBO | RE/MAX LITTLE OAK REALTY Fort Langley, BC
Growing up in a small town in the Kootenays, Amy Brattebo discovered at an early age her love for the outdoors and pretty much any activity that got her out in nature. Whether it was hiking, skiing, motorsports or horse riding, it was the hours she spent outside the home that she remembers the most.
Now working out of Fort Langley at RE/MAX Little Oak Realty, she was first drawn into a career in real estate back in 2008 following the completion of a course at UBC’s Sauder School of Business. Since that time, Amy has spent the last 12 years working in the areas where she’s lived, which has given her in-depth, first-hand knowledge to understand and then deliver what her clients are looking for.
“I’ve lived in various communities and housing situations - such as acreages - and I feel this personal experience gives my clients an extra level of insight that they might not get from someone else,” she explains.
Specializing in acreage properties and farms in Abbotsford and Langley, she has seen more interest from buyers moving from Vancouver and West Vancouver over the past 12 months than any other time in her career, and she doesn’t expect the level of activity to slow down anytime soon. Current listings range from family homes to executive gated properties on 4 or 5 acres to equestrian properties to a lush 156-acre estate an hour from Vancouver, with many properties selling within days of being listed.
“With our agency’s unique focus on country living - including farms, equestrian properties and acreages across Langley and surrounding areas – I feel I’m uniquely qualified to answer all of those additional questions that arise during the process of buying or selling a larger piece of land. Wells, septic systems, barns, sheds, animals, and more - I understand these elements and selling points of acreage properties, which allows me to provide a perspective unlike most other real estate agents.”
Being part of a trade-oriented family, Amy also grew up with an understanding of construction and developed a passion for woodworking, skills that have been invaluable in her career and which she utilizes when renovating her own homes.
“Expertise is so important in real estate,” she continues. “Everyone wants to offer great service, but without the proper knowledge, training and experience your client could be missing out on some vital information.”
