About Diane Birk

I believe that each client and each real estate transaction are unique, and deserve my full attention and experience. My honest approach and concern for long term relationships with clients, extensive expertise in my market, and trusted advice is what you can expect from me. I have a desire to provide a smooth, organized outcome for each client, which has earned me repeat and referral business throughout my 28+ year career in the City of Vancouver. I welcome the opportunity to discuss your real estate needs.

Approximately 85% of my business is through repeat and referred clients, and referrals from other Real Estate Agents across Canada. I take a direct, hands-on approach to working with buyers and sellers, and do not employ the "team concept". I feel that you deserve to work with the Real Estate Agent that you hired, and I like to be directly involved with you and accountable throughout the process of buying or selling a home. My past clients appreciate my direct honesty, thorough diligence, and always putting their needs first.

Throughout my career, I have built a reputation of high ethical standards, impeccable business practices, and professionalism. I have been consisently recognized as a top producer with Royal LePage:

Award of Excellence (consistent top 10% award status) - 2009, 2010, 2011, 2013, 2014, 2016
Director's Platinum (top 5%) - 2006, 2009
President's Gold (top 6-10%) - 2004, 2005, 2007, 2013, 2016, 2018, 2021
Master Sales (top 11-20%) - 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2011, 2012, 2014, 2017
Sales Achievement (top 21-25%) 1999, 2010, 2015
I have extensive experience in the complexities of Strata Titled properties, and understand the challenges and rewards of strata living, having served on my Strata Council for over 9 terms, and as President and Vice-President.

I have served on various volunteer committees with Royal LePage, and the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. A portion of each sale goes to The Royal LePage Shelter Foundation, Canada's largest public foundation dedicated exclusively to funding women's shelters and violence prevention programs.

On a personal note, I live in South False Creek, and love the lifestyle that this unique and quiet seaside neighborhood offers. I am a farm girl at heart, having grown up on a farm outside of Edmonton Alberta. I've always said that farm life shapes character - it takes a lot of hard work and enormous responsibility. Living in a small community where neighbors help each other instills integrity that I have carried with me throughout my life. I have made Vancouver my home in 1987 and have worked in the real estate industry ever since.
