From the first hello to the last handshake James and Karen couldn't have done more! They kept us on track, well informed and put us at ease through every step of the process. We were very fortunate to have these two looking after our sale and purchase.

"Just had an incredible experience working with Team James Hampton in selling my home. Their expertise in real estate was evident from the get go, in their knowledge and processes from getting your home ready, listed and dealing with offers. No doubt, they took any guess work away and made a large decision in selling a home a comfortable experience all while maximizing return for their client. Thanks James and Karen!"
- Barry & Carlie
James and Karen did a great job selling our home in Champlain Heights. Listing a house with two small kids is stressful, and their calm demeanor, professionalism and helpfulness helped assuage that difficulty. They were accommodating to our timelines, and ensured we had what we needed to feel comfortable throughout the process. Their hard work, dedication and attention to detail was most appreciated; we would highly recommend anyone consider listing with them!
- Graham and Kate
Our association with James goes back to 2013, when we first approached him regarding the sale of our townhouse. After a few visits and an appraisal, we ultimately decided not to proceed. Throughout, James was patient and professional.
In 2016, we finally decided to sell and throughout the selling process, both James and Karen, as well as the other members of Team James Hampton, continued to show a high degree of professionalism and depth of knowledge of Vancouver’s mercurial real estate market. Issues were approached directly and thoughtfully, and resolutions were accomplished with a minimum of drama. Thank you Team James Hampton for a successful sale.
- Ed & Marg Harrington
Just a note to thank Karen for looking after us so well! Your professionalism and always good humour saw us through. It was truly a pleasure to have you as our agent.
- Bill & Shirley Wickett
James and Karen were extremely professional, courteous and took the time to listen to what we wanted and the reasons why we prioritized certain criteria. They asked lots of questions to help narrow down our search.
Their knowledge of the market and genuine interest in our needs and desires made buying and selling a fantastic experience. They were patient, extremely attentive, and offered sound advice during the entire process. We were impressed with the technology Karen utilized that allowed us to tender and sign final contracts electronically. So convenient!
I’ve had the pleasure of working with James three times and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend James and Karen to anyone looking for a real estate agent.
- Brian & Laura
We would like to thank Karen for guiding us through the process of buying our first home. In this difficult market, Karen was always available, informative and very reassuring! Karen was instrumental in our decision making and we confident that with her help we made a great home purchase that we are very happy with. We would definitely recommend Karen's services for anyone looking to sell or purchase a home.
Jason and Yuli
A big thanks to the James Hampton Team for the sale of my home in Coquitlam and the purchase of a new home. James and Karen were easy and efficient to work with and their attention to detail made the whole process flawless. I am very happy with their hard work and would gladly recommend their services to anyone who is looking to relocate.
"Karen did an exceptional job selling my home at 2117 E 1st Ave, Vanc. Her strategy in the current market was to list below value to generate multiple offers, I had my reservations with this tactic as I wanted top dollar for the house. After about 3 weeks trying to sell with a high list price I decided to try Karen’s proven method of listing on the lower side. Within 3 days we had 4 multiple offers bidding on the home and we were able to settle on a price higher than my previously listed expectations. I couldn't be happier with Karen for her hard work and commitment to getting the job done. We set the record for highest single family home sale on E. 1st Ave, Vanc. I would list with Karen again."
Adrian & Lorinda
"Several years ago we had the pleasure of working with James Hampton on the sale of our home. We were very pleased with his professional advice and the quick sale at a fantastic price. Recently, when I had to sell my mother's house, I did not hesitate to call James again for his services. Needless to say, James and his team, Adrian Vonarx and Karen Boswell worked very hard and were always there for us when we called. Thank you team James for the sale of my mother's house!"
"Recently I had the pleasure of working with James to sell my home in new Westminster and purchase my new home in Vancouver. He and his team were there for me every step of the way, things could not have gone smoother. I would not hesitate to recommend James for anyone's real estate needs no matter where you live."
"Adrian excels at life! His energy is an innate quality that exudes naturally and is generated from a genuine desire to serve his clients with the best knowledge, persistence, determination and trust he can generate. He recently sold my apartment at UBC and took particular care to every detail within the selling process. He is a skilled listener and focuses only on the positive to resolve any problems that may arise. Change is difficult, but necessary, at times. Why not hire the best to help you with the hard transitions? I did. I would highly recommend Adrian to assist you with the sale of your house."
"Please allow us to congratulate you for a job well done! In over 35 years of practice in real estate law we never had the good fortune to deal with a realtor with as much knowledge of marketing, strategy and skill as you recently displayed in the sale of our home in Vancouver. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone."
Garry & Annette
"I found James to have a marvellous combination of genuine friendliness, courtesy, competency and practicality. Highly experienced, he was a trusted advisor during the process of selling my condo. James’s skill set included an ease in creating working relationships whether it was with the strata council or my tenant. Together with his wonderful teammate, Adrian, he provided a seamless realtor service, highlighted by creativity, encouragement, attention to detail and absolute reliability. I sincerely believe that, whatever the real estate transaction, this is the ideal team."
"Adrian recently handled the sale of our home. Our experience with him has been fantastic. He always took the time to make sure that we understood all aspects of the process, and were comfortable with it. We relied on his expertise and always found his advice helpful. Adrian is very positive and professional, and I would highly recommend him to anyone!"
"When we listed our Townhouse with James Hampton we knew we would get good service but he did much more than that. James delivered outstanding service and awesome results. Within a few days of listing, and a day after the ‘Open House’ we had received multiple offers, all of them substantially above asking price! James’ service is impeccable and he leaves no detail unchecked. He guided us patiently but also effectively through the process of preparing our home for selling and he took on an active role with the finishing touches for the showing. James’ service and results were far above what we could reasonably expect and we are grateful for the result he achieved. Thank you James."
Lorna & Ernest
I wanted to take time to properly thank you for everything. You were so good at making me feel comfortable from the start of this process right until the end. Thank you for explaining how everything would happen so that there were no surprises. I couldn't have made this leap without your help and hard work. I wish you all the best in the future! I'll make sure to keep in touch and you'll be the first one I call when I'm looking to sell."
1) We approached her about two houses in New West but they were already sold. She set us up on her mailing list and sent out the houses that suited us when they came up. I don't mean she did the quickie realtor thing of checking the boxes and having our email spammed up -- she actually looked at the houses and sent us the ones we'd look at!
2) When the market slowed down, she kept in touch and let us know what the market was doing. She was always available to show a home -- even if we weren't sure it was "the one"
3) We never felt pressured to purchase any particular home or purchase from her
4) She always gave us her honest opinion about the houses we were looking at
5) When we did find a house that was (and will be) our "dream home" she did a great job pulling really great comparables for us to take a look at.
6) When the listing agent started bugging out on the appraiser (what we needed to get our mortgage) KAREN stepped in an let the appraiser in! We still owe her big time!
7) Her pricing on houses was often spot on for what they sold for.
8) We generally think she's a great person!
"My wife and I recently worked with Adrian on purchasing our first home. As the host of the real estate show Dream Homes I've had the pleasure getting to know many different realtors with a wide range of experience from across the lower mainland. While we weren't buying a $25 million home (yet), Adrian provided an exceptional experience that made us feel like we were. Adrian and his team at James Hampton Realty were professional, knowledgeable and friendly and I would highly recommend working with Adrian as I know we will again in the future."
"When we decided it was time to put our townhome on the market, we knew we would be in good hands with James. He had sold a home for family members two years ago, and they were pleased with his service, the price they received, and how quickly it sold. We have had the added benefit of working with everyone on Team James Hampton: Adrian and Karen are extremely professional, knowledgeable, and a pleasure to work with. The team gave us great advice on how to prepare our home for showing and then did a fabulous job marketing our place and answering the many questions we had during the process. Adrian did an excellent job running our open houses, as did Karen when she hosted clients as they came through for private viewings. James then negotiated the sale of our home, and we were delighted with the result. We recommend James, Adrian, and Karen to sellers and buyers alike."
Kathryn & Jeff
"My husband and I just purchased our first home together with the help of Adrian. He was wonderful to work with. He was always prompt to reply to our emails and telephone calls, answered our questions thoroughly and patiently, and was so knowledgeable. I'd recommend using Adrian and his team to anyone I know."
"When I decided to sell my townhouse I immediately called James, because I knew he had a successful track record selling homes in my area. James and his team helped us from start to finish, with deciding what was necessary to fix in order to attract buyers to devising a plan to bring in more traffic. He was persistent and it finally paid off. As a non-resident seller, the situation was more difficult but James made it relatively easy by suggesting good people to help us through the process. I would definitely recommend James and his team to anyone wishing to sell their home."
“Team James Hampton – WOW! I had the pleasure of working with both James and Adrian for the sale of my townhome. Both individuals are passionate, knowledgeable and fully in sync with delivering the best results for their clients. As a team, there is always someone around for reassurance or to answer questions. They are punctual, informed and have that real estate ‘savvy’ to get the best deal. James and Adrian provide a framework and help guide you along the process of selling/buying a home, always leaving the final say with you, the client. They work hard to build and foster your trust -- it’s this open and honest approach that ensures you are in good hands. I have no hesitation in recommending them to prospective home buyers or sellers.”

"Adrian provided great support during our recent purchase of an apartment in Vancouver. He was fantastic to deal with throughout the search and the purchasing process. Adrian listened closely to us to understand exactly what we were looking for and only showed us apartments that fit our criteria. He was extremely patient throughout our search, and when we decided to make an offer on an apartment there was never any doubt that he was absolutely representing our interests in the process. We’ve dealt with a number of realtors over the years but there are few who compare to Adrian. His integrity and professionalism is evident in every detail. We were fortunate in having Adrian recommended to us and won’t hesitate in recommending him to anyone we know who is searching for a great realtor to help them into the perfect home."
Ray M. - October 2014
"Our home downsizing adventure was smoother and far less stressful than we could ever have imagined! In very short order, James sold our family home in south Burnaby, Adrian found us a beautiful condo in Kitsilano and Team Hampton coordinated the details and the timing of everything so meticulously that the transition for us was absolutely easy and seamless. James and Adrian clearly love what they do. Their generous time, care and expert guidance made us feel like we were their only clients. Thank you James and Adrian! You helped us over a mountain like it was a molehill."
Holly & Jim L. - September 2014
"James and Adrian helped us sell two properties and purchase our dream condo. We have been working with them over the past year and this dynamic team did a wonderful job in assisting us. They were very helpful in recommending excellent people in preparing our properties for sale. They were very professional in dealing with us and would highly recommend them for any real estate transactions. They were a pleasure to deal with."
Clara P. - August 2014
"James Hampton achieved for us what other agents were unable to, he sold our townhouse!! On two previous occasions, we had tried selling our townhouse with different agents, but without success. As soon as we met James, we realized we were dealing with a professional, experienced and understanding realtor. He recognized how anxious we were and he easily overcame this with his quiet, careful explanations. More importantly, he was diligent in keeping in touch with us, letting us know what was going out each step of the way. The advice he offered and the recommendations he made were bang on. Not only will James get results for you, you will be more relaxed as you work with a caring and trustworthy professional."
Susan S. - August 2014
I planned to find a Chinese real estate agent to help me, but my friend recommend James Hampton strongly. It's lucky for me to make the smart choice because James is so honest, conscientious and professional. He listened our demand and concern very carefully, recommended specific listings to us. Finally we found the satisfactory home just within a few days! James provided such high-efficency and professional services during the procedure, I'm very happy and appreciated. Choose James, trust James, you'll never be disppointed.
Vivien L. - July 2014
"When we sold our townhouse James guided us through all the steps from determining the asking price, listing the property and finally to the contract with the buyer. He’s experienced and professional. We were very pleased with the final result and would recommend him to any of our friends and neighbours."
Bonny & Earl O. - July 2014
"This is the second time that James has represented me in the selling and purchase of a townhome. James is a thoughtful listener, extremely conscientious and professional, and he is also very honest, trustworthy, and sincere. I could ramble on more about James because he is such a knowledgeable real estate agent and very dedicated to serving his clients. He makes the whole buying and/or selling process less stressful with his confident advice, constant communication, and excellent follow ups. You are definitely in superb hands when you choose James to represent you as your real estate agent!! Many appreciative thanks James."
Diana C. - July 2014
"Thank-you for your great service before and during listing our moms home. James made mom feel very comfortable and safe. He was clear, fair, friendly and hardworking. His communication through the process was always concise and immediate. He is very likable and approachable. Thank you for a job well done!"
Irene - July 2014
"James and Adrian did a fantastic job in working as my realtors and assisting me in finding my new home. They were very knowledgeable of the area I was interested in, and highly professional throughout the buying process. They both demonstrated a lot of enthusiasm for their work, which made the process enjoyable. I would recommend them to anyone!"
Charles H. - June 2014
"My wife and I were very nervous selecting the person who would be responsible for advising us on the biggest purchase of our lives. After our first meeting with Adrian, we felt immediately at ease. Adrian was enthusiastic and professional. During our initial discussion we were pleased with his industry knowledge and felt confident that he would be a loyal advisor during the buying process. Indeed, Adrian proved invaluable in providing market insight, recommending properties, advising on our negotiating positions and ensuring that we understood the process and met deadlines. I whole-heartedly recommend Adrian to anyone who wants an honest realtor who will put his client’s interests ahead of all else."
Sven T. - June 2014
"Selling your home is an overwhelmingly stressful time in a person's life and guidance from a reliable, knowledgable, and trustworthy source is required. I found all that in one man, James Hampton of RE/MAX. Being a senior on my own, I was at a loss where to start in getting my home ready to be put on the market but with James’ recommendations and guidance I was able to get my place in selling condition and a “ For Sale” sign was up on my townhouse. With diligent service from James and his team he was able to put a “sold sign” on my property. Next came the task of purchasing a new home. Frustrating and time consuming as it can be to find that new place to call home, James was once again to the rescue and made it an enjoyable experience for me. James Hampton, THANK YOU for being a “full service” realtor aiding me through this stress filled time. If I ever need the services of a realtor again in my lifetime...it will be you."
Carol S. - May 2014
"Adrian is a passionate, high energy Realtor who works tirelessly for clients until the desired outcome is achieved. He assisted us with finding our dream home and selling our current home, all at warp speed. Adrian's love and excitment for life provided a welcome injection of positive energy at a time when our stress levels were at an all-time high, as we ventured into that unknown territory of change and transition. Thank you Adrian for seeing us through to the finish line of achieving our goals!"
