Ina helped us strategize when and how we would bring our house to market, working within our preference to delay listing until we had a confirmed offer on a property in the Fraser valley. She referred us to a local realtor and coordinated to ensure that we were ready to list quickly when our offer was accepted, despite a delay caused by a plumbing issue that necessitated ceiling repairs and repainting. Ina engaged great professionals to compile a superb marketing package for the house, including photos, videos, drone footage, floor plans and printed materials (far superior than any we encountered during our house hunting). In the week before we listed, Ina was reactive to the market, adjusting our listing price to demonstrate value relative to other listings in the area, and judged that there was sufficient market momentum to set an offer date. As a result, there was considerable interest, the open houses were very busy and we received an offer significantly over asking in a cooling market. Ina was also able to negotiate closing dates that lined up with our house purchase.
Ina was a pleasure to work with. She demonstrated great professionalism and communicated frequently and clearly. We always knew what was going on, what needed to happen when, who we should expect to see, and when we should be out of the house. She managed our expectations and provided clear feedback after every open house, home inspection and realtor interaction. She was always there in person for all showings and buyer visits, never a lockbox, and we always felt that our house was secure.
For us, the result of choosing Ina as our realtor, was an outcome that exceeded our most optimistic scenario. Highly recommended!"
"We cannot recommend Ina enough. Incredibly knowledgeable about the local area, professional, efficient, hard working and lovely to work with. We really felt we were in safe hands and recommend her to everyone we meet."
DIFFICULT DECISION MADE EASY
"I recently reached out to Ina when the cost of remortgaging my second home was no longer what I wanted to pursue. It was a difficult decision to list in an uncertain market. With Ina's knowledge of the North Vancouver market and her savvy marketing skills, I had an offer after the first day of viewings for exactly what I wanted. Ina had several resources she connected me with to help in getting my townhouse show ready and made the experience as stress free as possible. She's professional, personable, honest and sincere. I'm so grateful I chose Ina for the sale of my home."
"Ina's exceptional professionalism and dedication stood out during the process of selling my house. Her deep knowledge of the market, highly organized and strategic approach, as well as effective communication skills made the entire experience smooth and stress-free. She went above and beyond to ensure I got the best value for my property. Without a doubt, Ina is a top-tier realtor who I highly recommend to anyone looking for outstanding service and results."
TEN INVESTMENT PROPERTIES
"Ina was instrumental in helping as secure our forever home. Despite it being rather stressful Ina’s positive and determined nature got us to the finish the line. Ina has also been fantastic at making introductions to the trades persons we need. She really does go the extra mile and then some. Thanks Ina!"
WOULDN'T TRUST ANYONE ELSE ON THE NORTH SHORE!
"Ina has been an absolute pleasure to work with. Her energy, enthusiasm, professionalism and resourcefulness defiantly made the difference in our purchase and sale, both multiple bid offers above asking. We have dealt with many realtors over the years and none have come close to Ina. We would not trust anyone else on the North Shore!!"
- Anette & John
TEN INVESTMENT PROPERTIES
"Ina is our go-to real estate professional. She has helped us buy and sell 10 properties on the North Shore and Whistler which attests to our complete confidence in her! I would highly recommend Ina."
- Janice Steigleder
"Ina was a superb agent. She took the time to get to know our personality and to really understand what we wanted and liked: worked her magic (that's based on a lot of experience and knowledge and talent combined), to find us a home, within our means, that I honestly never imagined was possible. She also has amazing patience and is very adaptable to various requests. You can count on her 100%."
- Marta Toesev
DOWNSIZING AFTER 40 YEARS
"The decision to sell your home in your senior years is a difficult one. Both of our adult children had used Ina as their realtor. Based on their positive experiences we turned to her when we started to explore the idea of downsizing. What we most appreciated was that Ina provided valuable advice but never pressure to make a quick move. You really feel that she is sincere in looking after your best interest. When we did find an exceptional condo property, Ina gave us the confidence to make an offer and list our home for sale. Her positive personality is infectious. Ina has a wealth of experience and an amazing team to call on to assist with home staging and as a result, the whole process came together flawlessly. As implausible as it might seem, we made a successful offer on the condo and sold our house over the asking price within 10 days of first viewing the property. Now that we are awaiting completion, Ina is still amazingly responsive and helpful. She promised to be with us for the whole process and she is. Ina is a pleasure to work with and just gives you the confidence to make a positive change."
- Heather Mah

Thank you Ina for getting us from our family's first home to our new forever home."
TRUSTWORTHY, RELIABLE, AND INFORMATIVE "Ina helped us sell our one-bedroom flat and then switched into buyer mode and found us a townhouse that ticked all the right boxes. This was all during the pandemic where opportunities were rare and we needed to move fast! She is trustworthy, reliable and informative and we are forever grateful for her patience and understanding of our situation. She knew exactly what we were looking for and she knew exactly what we needed to do to get it ☺️ thanks Ina!"
FIRST-TIME HOME BUYERS
"We're so grateful to have been able to work with Ina on the purchase of our home. She is an exceptional realtor: personable, knowledgeable, responsive, honest, well-connected in the industry and throughout the community, and a genuinely caring and kind person. Ina consistently took the time to thoroughly explain any part of the home buying process that we had questions about. She is highly organized and provided a number of useful professional resources. Ina was a pleasure to work with and got us into our ideal home. We would absolutely work with her again!"
SOLD FOR WELL OVER ASKING
"Ina helped our young family 6 years ago to get our first house which was a lovely house. Recently she also helped us to sell it well over asking. She always has great professional suggestions and advise to help either selling or buying your house. She works really hard and is always available to answer questions and provide advice. Great realtor to work with. I am glad that we sought her professional help for our real state transactions :)"
EXCELLENT KNOWLEDGE OF THE MARKET"It has been a pleasure to work with Ina over the years we have known her and during the recent sale of our home. We found Ina's approach to be professional and knowledgeable, and her advice has always been good. She worked diligently to market our home in an effective manner because of her excellent knowledge of the market. She always kept us updated and answered all our questions and concerns we had over time. She is patient, understanding, reliable and very helpful. And, we can now say, she is a good friend. Amazing person! We recommend Ina Ervin to anyone looking for a good realtor to sell or buy a property. Thank you, Ina. "-Gina and Paul Vasak
HONEST AND DOWN-TO-EARTH
"Ina is an exceptional realtor. She is honest, down-to-earth and an absolute pleasure to deal with. She is an excellent communicator, responding very promptly to all of our questions and taking the time to talk through every step of the process with us, and is extremely knowledgeable about the North Shore market. Ina showed the utmost professionalism and integrity throughout our dealings with her and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell on the North Shore."
"Ina's personal style and proactive approach to supporting me in my search for a new home made all the difference to me finding the right place. Ina was a great listener and spent time to really understand what I was looking for. And as we got closer to the right place she moved quickly to make sure the purchase came together. Ina never pressured and was always clear that the place needed to be right for me. But she also gave her opinion in a way that helped me think more clearly about what made sense for me. It was a fun and rewarding experience working with Ina. And Ina's assistant Aurora was a huge help to make the journey smooth as we dealt with showings and the final paperwork. I would highly recommend Ina and her team to help with any home purchase or sale. Thanks Ina!!"
"We have known Ina for 6 years and with her help have been able to buy and sell a few times.

- Wendy and Aaron Sanders
HEART OF GOLD
"We choose Ina because she had some different pieces that we liked in her presentation. Ina gave us honest and fair upfront information before we got started and from there we became a team. Ina had a couple of different keys that we felt made a huge difference to our position in the marketplace, one being that she brought in a stager (this was gold for us); two the photographer took the photos at night giving the condo a unique look that made the place pop!
Ina gave us her undivided attention and made us feel like we were the only clients she had, although she had many at the time and it was a busy market.
Ina has a heart of gold and is very diligent in her abilities to get the deal closed for the best possible price for you. We love Ina and would highly recommend working with her anytime to anyone."
- Suzanne Miles & Tony Norrish
"There are so many reasons we love working with Ina Ervin. Ina's commitment to detail and work ethic are the absolute best in the industry. Whether you're a real estate investor or first time home buyer it is extremely important that you surround yourself with the best and that's why I always call on Ina. Ina Ervin is consistent and always delivers and exceeds expectations. My wife and I strongly recommend Ina Ervin as an invaluable asset to your team. We will always choose Ina! "
- Shelley and Mark Curtin
"Ina's life as a professional athlete has taught her the discipline to do all the right steps along the way to succeed - and she does it in the most wonderful team-spirited way. I enjoyed feeling well taken care of professionally and our home was sold within weeks with all parties feeling like winners!"
- Linda Fuerniss
"Buying and selling a house is one of the most stressful times in your life and Ina calmly and confidently took us through the whole process seemingly effortlessly. First, she found us our dream house and expertly advised us on how to successfully go about purchasing it in a multiple offer situation. Then she provided us with the most amazing services: staging, marketing and photography to successfully sell our house in 5 days!! We were quite inexperienced in the real estate market and Ina thoroughly explained all the details and answered all our questions. We could not / would not have been able to do it without her. Thank you so much, Ina! If you are looking for a hardworking, knowledgeable realtor who is there for you 100% - call Ina!"
- Michelle and Rene Michaely
"It was a great experience working with Ina and her team. We were very impressed with the transformation that took place on our apartment within a week of hard work and professional advice.

- Ingrid Warn and Quinn Kelly
"I referred my good friends to Ina for the sale of their home. It had been on the market for over 11 months with no offers, and they were getting anxious it wouldn’t sell. Ina's professionalism and expertise won them over, and my friends immediately trusted that Ina would sell it. Once again, Ina proved her excellence and sold their home in only 6 days! My friends were absolutely thrilled and would definitely work with
Ina again." - Christa Rutherford
"Ina did a wonderful job representing us in the search for our first property. In particular, we found her to be very sensitive to our particular requirements, while being very effective at bringing us up to speed with the various aspects of searching for a home. We were very impressed with her capacity to understand what we were looking for, pointing out key details when inspecting properties that really allowed us to be decisive. All this was backed up with a clear dedication to our interests, knowledge of the market, and timely service. There is no question that we will work with Ina when we look to make our next home purchase, and we recommend her to others without hesitation."

- Sasha Brown and Brian McCurdy
"Over the course of about four weeks from our first meeting with Ina, to clearing our subjects of purchase, Ina’s professionalism, accessibility and gregarious nature made an otherwise stressful transaction an enjoyable experience. For three consecutive weekends Ina made herself available for property viewings according to our schedule and whenever we had questions they were answered quickly and enthusiastically. Ina understood what my wife and I were looking for in our new home and she was always supportive of our likes and dislikes. She stood ready to educate us where needed. When it came time for Ina to give us professional referrals for inspectors, mortgage brokers and lawyers she provided us with several high-quality contacts. Overall we were very pleased with our experience and would be happy to support Ina with referrals to friends, family and colleagues."
- Kevin Mah and Jenna Cook
"I can not say enough great things about working with Ina and I have recommended her highly to a number of friends. Ina truly listens to what you want, is honest about what is possible and then goes out to make it happen. She helped us sell our house for over asking in less than a week! She is a phenomenal communicator and truly wants to ensure her clients are happy with every decision. Working with her has been a pleasure and more!"
- Tracy Page
"Ina's expertise and customer-oriented service helped us buy our first home in less than two weeks! She was able to get us in all the houses we wanted to view within 24 hours of us enquiring. She guided us through the negotiation process and helped us get the house we wanted at the price we wanted. After the deal was sealed, Ina always kept checking on us to make sure all was well. We would recommend Ina to any seller or buyer."
- Rola Zahr and Rabih Naanahi
"Purchasing a house in North Vancouver while living in Toronto is not an easy task. Add a newborn baby to the mix and the fact that we had sold our house in Toronto before looking at new homes made it that much more complicated. Ina worked diligently with my wife and me by email and phone to shortlist homes in the right area, at the right price. When I flew out to look at the 17 houses Ina arranged in a single day, I knew our time had to be optimized and the houses needed to fit the bill. Not only did we find the right house but we were able to negotiate a better deal than the list price. The key to Ina's success is her knowledge of the market, the neighbourhoods and her willingness to guide her clients through a typically stressful process with comfort and ease. It was actually fun! Thanks, Ina for making North Van our new home!"
- Breia Noble and Ewan Dunderdale
"Ina was rock solid: from our initial contact to completion, Ina was thorough and professional. She made selling our place easy and fast - we had multiple offers within a week, and sold for over our asking price! Her advice served us extremely well, and it's obvious that she's an expert in her field. We wouldn't hesitate to use Ina again, and we would recommend her, without hesitation to anyone buying or selling!
- Dana and Grant Daisley
"Ina went out of her way to meet our needs, arranging as many places to see as possible on my short trip from Ontario to find a place. She listened carefully to my needs and was able to find the right neighbourhood for our lifestyle. Her local knowledge is outstanding and a real asset in helping us find the right home. She is always a pleasure to be with - positive, upbeat, kind, energetic."
- Brenda Hardie and Brad Hogg
"Working with Ina as a Realtor has been an entirely positive experience. She came to me highly recommended and lived up to her reputation by listening to my needs and wants, and turning that very quickly into a purchase at a good price, right in the zone I specified. Ina is always professional, friendly, goes the extra mile, and is clearly focused on doing what's right for her clients. It was a fantastic buying experience and I recommend her to anyone in the housing market."
- Ingrid Morse
"We met Ina at an open house and immediately took a liking to her professionalism and positive attitude so we were happy when she agreed to represent us. As first time home buyers, we were nervous about the process. She was very thorough in her explanations and truly had our best interest at heart, even when representing the buyers as well. We would not hesitate to use her again."
- Alex Trifonova and Andrew Bowden
"We immediately wanted Ina to be our realtor for her integrated and holistic approach for marketing and sales and her clear commitment to getting her buyers and sellers into the best possible opportunity. Always available, guiding and informing, Ina is everything she says she is and more. In a soft market, Ina won our new home, in a multiple offers bid and sold our existing home in 9 days. It's clear, Ina loves her job, has an open and friendly rapport which creates a partnership with her clients based on transparency, realistic expectations and superlative professionalism. We met only one realtor, but just knew Ina was the best -- more importantly, she proved it! Thanks Ina!"
- Jenn and Nic Hepton
"Ina worked for 3 years to find us our dream house! 3 years! She worked with us when we got cold feet and retracted an accepted offer on a house. She worked with us during periods when we were disillusioned with the Vancouver housing market and were very despondent and never thought we would find our special house. Finally, when we were ready, she worked with us to sell our townhouse and purchase our dream house in North Vancouver. Ina goes way beyond what anyone would expect from a top realtor. Her knowledge of the Vancouver real estate market is unparalleled; her tireless research is relentless; and best of all she gets to know her clients, understands what's important to them, and doesn't stop until she delivers on her client's needs. We recommend Ina in the highest possible terms. If you have a house to buy or sell anywhere in Vancouver, especially in the current challenging market, you can do no better than partnering with Ina - she truly is the best."
- Ryan Douglas
"Ina helped us sell our condo, and she was by far the best realtor we have ever dealt with. We priced it at what we thought was fair market value (looking at the comparable condos on the market and previous sales in the building), to get a quick sale; however, she was able to help us get way over asking price. She really worked hard for the sale, let me tell you."
- Ryan Granholm
"Our family recently had the pleasure of working with Ina on the sale and purchase of our home. Ina helped us find the right trades to stage our house and she sold it for asking in just three days. She also helped us find the perfect house. Ina makes it happen. I would recommend her as a realtor to anyone wanting to buy or sell on the North Shore. Thank you, Ina!"
- Paul Mendes and Charlene Keller
"Ina is the most helpful and fabulous realtor, she is second to none in her dedication to her clients, she works tirelessly to meet their needs in both the sale and purchase of properties both personal and investment here on the North Shore and in Whistler. Thank you, Ina, for working with us, we would recommend you to everyone!!"
- Tanya Colhoun
"Ina helped me purchase a cash flow positive investment property and referred me to a great real estate broker in the US (where I currently live). Ina's ability to find great properties and connect you with good people is invaluable and I would refer her in a heartbeat. Thank you!!!"
- Marcus Wong
"Ina was amazing! We were thrilled with how quickly she was able to sell our duplex. She had over 100 people through the door and we ended up in a multiples situation after only 5 days on the market. We would recommend her to everyone!"
- Tracy and Alex Langer
"Ina is friendly and professional, offering impressive marketing strategies to sell your home for top dollar and in record time. Her honesty and clear lines of communication at each step in the process helped our family feel at ease. I would have no hesitation recommending Ina as a trustworthy agent to help you sell your property."
- Ari Entourage
"Ina is amazing. Very organized and professional, goes above and beyond and is great at responding quickly to questions. She sold our place in two days at above asking while comparable properties sit unsold over a month later. I would highly recommend her to anyone."
- Chris Johannsen
"Our dream home came up for sale and we had to sell our condo fast! Ina & her team were totally awesome! They led us through this overwhelming process but in the end it was amazing! We learned so much! Our condo was SOLD within 2 1/2 weeks of listing!!! And we are SO thankful we met Ina!"
- Marlene Langelier
"Ina is a PRO! From our first meeting, we had a good feeling about working with Ina and she delivered in every way. She helped us navigate our sale and purchase in a changing market and we are beyond pleased with how everything turned out. Thanks Ina!"
