Biography - Diane Birk

Approximately 85% of my business is through repeat and referred clients, and referrals from other REALTORS® 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 REALTOR® that you hired, and I like to be directly involved with you throughout the process of buying or selling a home.  My past clients appreciate my direct honesty, thorough diligence, and always putting their needs first.


I have specialized in residential real estate in Vancouver’s Westside, since 1994.  Throughout my career, have built a reputation of high ethical standards, impeccable business practices, and professionalism.  I have been consistently recognized as a top producer with Royal LePage:


Award of Excellence (consistent top 10% award status) - 2010

Director's Platinum (top 5%) - 2006, 2009

President's Gold (top 6-10%) - 2004, 2005, 2007, 2013, 2016, 2018

Master Sales (top 11-20%) - 2000, 2001, 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 both as President and Vice-President for 7 years.  


I have served on various volunteer committees with Royal LePage, and the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver, as I believe in giving back.  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 a person's character - it takes a lot of hard work and enormous responsibility.  Living in a small community where neighbors help each other instills a pure honesty and trust that I have carried with me throughout my life.  I made Vancouver my home in 1987, and have worked in the real estate industry ever since.
