A message that was sent to Kim Spencer, Manager, Professional Standards (REBGV)
By one of our licensees, Erissa Yong-Wilson
Dear Kim; I am writing to send a virtual bouquet to my Broker/Manager, Roloff Veld, of Evergreen West Realty. I have already sent him a real live bouquet. It's the least I can do for being the best broker I know in 22 years. I am very appreciative of his help lately in the office. In my experience, and humble opinion, he is always going over and above his duty to ensure that we as licensees do the right thing as well as get the support we needed from our broker. In my darkest moment of dealing with some very difficult situations in my work he has been a constant light to guide and show me the right thing to do. Roloff gave me unconditional support in the last two weeks on a deal that was going side ways in more ways than one. I have been helping a buyer purchase a town house in the Fraser Valley and it had not been easy with multiple offers situations. I wrote 6 offers and finally the last one was accepted. Through it all, Roloff advised me, consoled me, supported me and reminded me of my fiduciary duty to my buyer. He gave me the energy to persist in going that extra mile till the deal was done. I truly believe that without such a supportive, kind, caring, and patient broker, I would have given up and referred my client to another realtor. My client would not have been happy. They trusted me and counted on me. I could not have done it without Roloff 's help and his constant encouragement and motivation. He kept me focused and on course. In my opinion he had gone beyond his role as manager and broker to help me help my buyer find their home. He answered his phone unceasingly and returned my calls to him day and night and on weekends, promptly; Always taking the time to listen to me. He was always available to consult. I have been selling real estate since 1994, and I have been a broker before. But in my opinion, Roloff is the exemplary example of a "broker extraordinaire". He did not have to go the extra mile for me. But he did. He deserves the bouquets and more. I offered to pay him a higher office split for this deal and he even refused that. He was happy to just help me. I hear from the other licensees he does the same for them. He is a great mentor and my hero. I am enlightened. I believe we need more people in our industry like him. One who gives of himself freely and selflessly to ensure that the public is served 100% and that his licensee's mental health is preserved through it all. I get a sense he really loves his job and this industry. He serves it with pride and care. I wish to emulate him. I am gratefully indebted to him.
~ Sincerely, Erissa Yong-Wilson

I had worked with Roloff for five years before I joined Evergreen West. I was so impressed by his knowledge and expertise in Real Estate. He was such a great manager and supporter. Whenever and wherever I had questions, problems, troubles in the business, "Roloff" was always the first answer coming to my mind. I'm happy that I have made a right move to Evergreen West. He has still been as supportive, friendly, and patient to all of us.

I decided to join Evergreen West Realty after I received an invitation to meet with Roloff at his office. I was impressed with his professionalism and many years of experience. I also like that he is not only the managing broker, but also the owner of Evergreen West Realty. The office is in the area where I live which is a great bonus. Roloff has gathered a group of enthusiastic and very friendly realtors. Many of the current realtors at Evergreen West have known each other for many years and have made me feel extremely welcome as a newcomer to their group. Love the regular sales meetings, which inform and update me about the current market conditions and changes in the industry.
