Michael took us from a house-hunting nightmare to an experience that has now put us in the house of our dreams. He is well versed in all Vancouver markets and neighborhoods and made suggestions for areas that we had not thought of. His patience and boundless enthusiasm for ensuring that we were comfortable with the largest purchase we had ever made was invaluable. What we appreciated most about Michael was that he pre-screened houses for us based on our criteria. He took the time to know us, and therefore knew what we might like. It saved us endless time and frustration.
Michael has a great deal of integrity in how he deals with people. We trust him enough to recommend him to all our friends and colleagues. I wish we had found him sooner!

We have used Michael’s services to both, sell and buy twice over. Even as seasoned sellers/buyers, we were impressed by his professionalism, promptness to return phone calls and knowledge of the market. Michael took the time to get to know our family’s needs and tailored the search to what we required. He even went to several open houses to see whether a house, that looked perfect in pictures, was really for us. He even made sure the house has a place for our big dog!
As a selling agent, Michael prepared a written market analysis and gave careful consideration regarding the selling price. His marketing and advertising campaign were to the point and designed to attract interest from the right clientele. He attended every showing and open house in a very personal manner, knowing the ins and outs of our house. The house sold within 3 weeks in a very difficult market of March 2009.
I would – and I have – recommended Michael to my friends and acquaintances. Based on my previous experiences with other real estate agents, Michael will give a very personal, yet professional approach, which is difficult to find in today’s market.

We were extremely happy with the service that we received from Michael Boughey. He made many great suggestions to improve our chances in selling, one of which was to place many of his wonderful paintings from his personal art collection in our home. He was also very patient and professional when it came time to buying our new home which we are very happy with. For sure we will use Michael again in the future should we decide to sell or buy other real estate. Michael Boughey is an exceptional Real Estate Agent.

Working with Michael was a pleasure from day one. We found him to be professional, friendly, by-the-book without being stuffy, knowledgeable, experienced, and approachable. We felt that there was nothing he wouldn’t do to ensure that our apartment sold. We have already recommended him to several of our friends, and are looking forward to having Michael help us find our dream home.
Caroline & Paul
We have now used Michael for the purchase or sale of 8 differing properties. We have been very pleased with his service especially his promptness at returning calls and answering our questions. He has kept us continually informed throughout the process. He has always provided us with all the necessary facts and information so needed to make a qualified decision. We would not hesitate to recommend him.

Michael, Thank you so much for your work in selling my property. Your knowledge, expertise, hard work, and attention to detail made the process go so smoothly and I was confident in knowing everything would be taken care of in a very timely and professional manner, and I was so pleased with the end result. Personally, you were also great, always a pleasure to speak with, very helpful and easy to communicate with, and always keeping me informed. I would, without a doubt, recommend your services to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.

We want you to know that you can give our name and number to anyone who wishes a referral . As you know, we have moved out of the country twice, lived in two provinces and have moved over 20 times in our 28 years of marriage and we have never experienced the level of service and professionalism as we have with you. Returning to Canada after a 12 year absence, many things had changed and your patience in re-educating us in the Vancouver real estate scene was sound and thorough. Your in-depth knowledge of market trends (not only housing) and assessment of our needs surpassed our expectations. We met
and spoke to many real estate agents but non compare with you. Real estate agents are in a very competitive market and although we are not against "making a living", you genuinely are interested in the happiness of your clients. The time, dedication, research and sincere knowledgeable advice make you stand far above the rest!

Michael Boughey of 2% Realty Advantage in Vancouver is an exceptional
person and realtor. He provided a detailed and thorough evaluation for our
Condo. Michael was concise, and courteous. He explained patiently
all the past and present local market movements with respect to our
property in Vancouver in simple and clear English. It helped us to make
an proper decision in this muddy yet dynamic Real Estate market.
I would highly recommend Michael Boughey to help you in either looking
for your next home or selling your property in Vancouver. Definitely
Michael is a positive force on your side in this current Real Estate

It's been just over a month since we sold our house. Before we listed, we talked to 5 Realtors and Michael Boughey stood out from the rest with his professionalism and attention to details. He was insightful and extremely knowledgeable about Real Estate. We were never rushed or put under any pressure throughout the entire process. Michael's approach to all questions and problems was exceptional. He went above and beyond his duties of a Realtor to ensure all aspects of selling and closing on our house went smoothly. We have dealt with a few different Realtors and Michael is the best we have seen. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Michael Boughey whether selling or buying a home.

As Executor, I was faced with the stressful situation of selling my parents home. I interviewed several real estate agents and I was extremely impressed with Michael from the moment I met him. He was thoroughly knowledgeable about the market and his professionalism and his dedication and focus for doing what’s right for his clients was at the forefront. It was clearly evident that Michael was an expert in his field and I instantly knew that he was the right realtor to get the job done...and he proved it!
It was an absolute pleasure working with Michael through the entire process. Michael has a very realistic approach to real estate and he expertly explained all of the details of the process, answered all of my questions without hesitation and was always available and took the time to educate me where needed. Michael is an outstanding communicator and due to my remote location he easily navigated through the numerous back and forth phone calls, e-mails and texts to keep me informed of all the relevant details every step of the way.
Michael completely exceeded my expectations during the entire process as the services he provided were clearly above and beyond his advertised “100% realtor services”. Michael went that extra mile and provided copious amounts of time and energy and demonstrated his experience, expertise and professionalism during a particular difficult situation.
In the end, it was Michael’s dedication and his effective, sound and honest guidance that made for a truly successful transaction.
It was a great experience working with Michael.
If you are looking for a hard working, knowledgeable and trustworthy realtor who is always there for you and provides matter of fact advice – trust Michael, you will be gaining an ally who will do his very best for you!
