Meet Marie ...
Simply put, Marie is resolutely committed to achieving the best results for her clients, whether they are looking to buy or sell Vancouver real estate.
It was while working as an awarded copywriter and brand strategist for high-profile global brands (eg Dell, Sony, Marc Jacobs) that Marie first ventured into real estate 15 years ago. Tasked with creating marketing assets for the real estate investment and leasing projects of clients including the Carlson Rezidor Hotel Group and IKEA, she helped position both large commercial developments and exclusive luxury properties at the forefront of their markets.
Today, Marie offers the same professionalism, client-minded approach and commitment to results that she brought to the table working with Fortune Global 500 brands and industry-leading companies. Having developed campaigns spanning multiple continents, media and demographics, she is experienced in achieving optimal exposure throughout target audiences.
Ultimately, Marie enjoys working with clients to help them achieve their objectives and overcome any challenges that may present themselves along the way. A Vancouverite born and raised, she's happy to answer any questions about what this amazing city has to offer.
I can't say enough positive things about Marie.
Marie was there for me every step of the way and supportive beyond what can be expected during the whole process of selling a very unique house that was waiting for the right buyer.
Marie is professional and knowledgeable and she exhausted every avenue given to her, always being a step ahead of what might happen next in the market. I have worked with different realtors over time, but would go back to Marie without hesitating should the need arise again.
Marie will not disappoint, that much I know.
Thank you Marie for everything you did for me and the family.

Marie was our dream realtor. We gave her the very challenging task of selling our Vancouver apartment in a declining market while my wife and I left the country for 3 months. Marie worked so hard, had an excellent marketing game and helped us make the difficult decisions of turning down the first few (low-ball) offers. She made us believe we would get a good price and she was not wrong. Could not recommend Marie's services more!

Best experience ever having met Marie. She made things so easy for my wife Maria and I in terms of getting our new house since day one. She didn’t miss a thing in all the process, being always on top of things so we we could have a smooth, enjoyable, not stressful and none risky closure. She is patient, smart, kind and much much more. We highly recommend to contact her if you are interested in buying or selling a property.

Marie helped me sell a tenanted apartment during the COVID pandemic. She handled a very difficult process with professionalism, poise and a level of tenacity that you need during an uncertain market. I am generally a skeptical person by nature, but I never doubted that she was working hard to represent my interest. I recommend Marie 100%.

Marie is the best. My condo was listed in February 2019 with numerous challenges including an incomplete membrane re-do, pending litigation and a builder's lien. It couldn't have been a worse time and situation to sell, but Marie was honest, always positive and worked relentlessly to get it sold. Her marketing plan was incredible, she set-dec'd the suite beautifully and her communication was always first rate. Her level of professionalism and work ethic was amazing throughout the listing period, and resulted in the condo selling within 3 weeks. Marie then went to work to get the lien removed, which she did quickly so the sale could complete. I couldn't be happier with her work and the resulting sale. It's always great when a realtor is so nice to deal with but at the end of the day it's a results oriented business and Marie flat out gets results. If there was a 6 star rating she'd have earned it.

Marie is the best agent you could dream of! She is a professional with high standards of ethics, empathy and compassion! She is extremely patient and dedicates to your search and budget with true passion! She helped us find a place with limited budget and a lot of unknowns and unexpected circumstances. Marie managed to guide us through with such patience and compassion! I will be forever grateful to her for her amazing dedication and professionalism.
She commits to you as if it was for her own! If you have Marie O’Connor it’s already a WIN! Without a doubt we would recommend Marie for your real state needs and circumstances!

We have decided to buy an apartment as a long-term investment. Apartments in Vancouver are very expensive; however, we had limited budget and high expectations. We were expecting an exhausting process of searching for the best place. We hired Marie who made this experience painless and enjoyable. This is very true. Marie is very honest and trustworthy. She took time to explain us the current market and helped us to make the best decision. She was always available and responsive to our texts, emails and calls. Marie was very proactive, she checked places for us when we could not attend in person. We felt she was always happy for us and her only customers. Marie proved knowledgeable of Vancouver markets; we covered the greater Vancouver area. We bought a great place, within our budget and relatively quickly. Marie is an excellent agent; we would highly recommend.

Sharp and Knowledgeable. Marie helped us land our dream home in an impossible multiple-offer market and helped us sell quickly to make the deal work out better than we had expected!.

Marie helped us find the perfect waterfront property in Kelowna, but we were unable to travel to see it in person so she assisted us throughout the process with virtual tools. She left no stone unturned, and the property is a perfect fit. We took her advice on the negotiation and landed the property for a far better price than we had anticipated. The experience left us wanting to do it again!

Marie is a true professional. She consistently went above and beyond to ensure that we found our perfect home and had a positive purchase experience. We faced a number of challenges with our purchase and Marie did an exceptional job of advocating for us, being laser focused on all details, and ensuring that everything went as smooth as possible. I would not hesitate to recommend Marie to anyone looking for a realtor on the North Shore.

Marie is outstanding! Being a buyer in a new market was frightening to me at that time. Covid put us in a new fast moving market but Marie was there to handle it all for us. From selling our old home to getting us our new home in a well desired neighbourhood. She was on top of it all and it was so reassuring to me as we just welcomed our new baby and Marie made sure we had an amazing experience so we could focus also on our family while making very important decisions! She always advised us with best intentions and I highly recommend her!

Marie was a pleasure to work with. She was kind and approachable, and she took the time to listen to our needs, preferences, and concerns. Her positive attitude made every interaction enjoyable, making us feel at ease during what could have been a much more stressful process, especially as we were first-time home buyers.
Marie was thorough, and it was evident that she was knowledgeable about the local real estate market in North Van.
Throughout the process, she offered advice and she was patient with our questions, taking the time to explain every step of the buying process, ensuring we were well-informed and confident in our decisions.
We also felt like we were her priority, as she promptly responded to our inquiries and kept us informed at every stage. In addition, she negotiated on our behalf skillfully, ensuring we got the best outcome we could, and keeping our best interests at heart.
We won't hesitate to choose Marie again when we sell/buy in the future!

We absolutely recommend Marie. She is incredibly knowledgeable, professional and friendly and really goes the extra mile for her clients. She helped us successfully buy our dream home in a very competitive and unpredictable market. She was always available to answer our questions and took the time to thoughtfully explain all of our options - we felt like she genuinely cared about our best interests. We would wholeheartedly recommend her to our friends (and indeed already have!).
