thumb James Hampton - Personal Real Estate Corporation

I am always asked why I am passionate about Real Estate, and the answer is simple; I love working with people and I love marketing and selling properties. Every day is a new challenge in a dynamic industry that is as exciting today as when I started over 27 years ago! Since 1992 I have had the pleasure of representing and helping Sellers and Buyers make sound Real Estate decisions.

I specialize in single detached, townhome, and apartment sales for Vancouver East, Burnaby and surrounding areas, so when you engage me as your REALTOR© you're getting an area-specific REALTOR© who understands both Leasehold and Freehold ownership.

You can be assured that I will work for you in an ethical fashion and keep you in the process with timely feedback on market conditions.  I always operate in a confidential manner and am determined to constantly advance your negotiating position. When I work for Clients I offer them friendly and professional service, free from pressure and self interest. 

If you’re looking for a REALTOR® who knows and loves Vancouver East, Burnaby and surrounding area's, then you’ve come to the right person. I take pride in offering exceptional service and this has been recognized by the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver. I have been awarded the RE/MAX Hall of Fame distinction (2006), 2 years (2009-2010) with President's Club status (top 1%) for sales generated in the Lower Mainland, and 25 consecutive years (1993-2018) of Medallion Club status (top 10% of REALTORS®).

I would welcome the opportunity to direct my energy, experience and negotiating skills to get what 100's of my satisfied clients have received already; exceptional service. Please contact me today, I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

When asked what I enjoy most about being a REALTOR®, it is the smiles on my clients faces when they find their perfect home. As the Buyer’s Specialist on Team James Hampton my passion lies in finding the right home for every client. My goal is to bring enthusiasm, expertise and excellence to each and every transaction.

Throughout my real estate career I am proud to have been included in the Real Estate Board of Greater Vancouver’s prestigious President’s Club, which recognizes the top 1% of the industry (2011-2014) and 7 consecutive years (2011-2018) of Medallion Club status (top 10% of REALTORS®). My experience as a REALTOR® has given me expertise in all areas of the buying and selling process and I bring an innate ability to put people at ease, no matter how complex the situation may be. I listen carefully and take care to develop a personalized course of action while maintaining a commitment to the highest standards and ethics. My Chinese heritage and Canadian upbringing means I speak both Cantonese & English fluently and my long-term success is demonstrated by the lasting relationships I have formed with my clients. I welcome the opportunity to work with you!
