How can I help you? Let my put my experience to work for you. I have been in business since 1991.
There are many qualities and skills that go into being an excellent real estate professional - integrity, in-depth community and market knowledge, marketing savvy, effective negotiation skills and a high-quality professional network, all of which are hallmarks of how I work.
That said, in my experience as a real estate professional, I've also found that providing the very best service is essentially about putting my clients first. This means keeping myself accessible, being a good listener as well as a good communicator, and responding quickly to your needs.
This "client first" philosophy has always been my approach and it requires me to continually improve my skills and ways of doing business.
So when you decide that you'd like to buy or sell a home in Burnaby, New Westminster, Coquitlam or other nearby areas, please contact me.
When I began apartment hunting, I was very fortunate that a good friend recommended Fay Tomlinson to me. She had bought and sold a number of properties for his family, and his exact words were, “Fay will really work hard for you, plus she is ethical and professional---you can trust her 100% !” With Fay’s years of experience and amazing instinct, she found my dream apartment in only 7 days, and under budget! Best of all, I didn’t have to look at many apartments because Fay did such an excellent job narrowing down the possibilities. I would use Fay again in a heartbeat, and highly recommend her.

Fay is a gem of a Realtor! When purchasing our first home, we didn't have to look very much as Fay guided us in the right direction for our needs at the time. This came from listening to us and showing only what would be of interest. This professionalism saved so much time and eased us into our new home making it so comfortable. We used Fay again in buying an investment property. With Fay's expertise and attention to detail, we have since sold both properties, rather quickly, and found our current home. When Fay told us she found our new home, she was sure right. Over the years we have only gotten expert advise, the facts, and those listening ears. If ever we could pry ourselves away from our perfect home, it would not be done without Fay.
We highly recommend Faye and thank her for all she has done for us!

Fay Tomlinson recently listed and sold an apartment for us. She was very professional in handling this, and kept in touch every step of the way. She worked hard to ensure a fast sale, including holding Open Houses. Her integrity was exceptional. We would highly recommend her services to anyone looking for an honest dependable REALTOR.

We sold our home in New Westminster and bought an apartment with the help of Fay Tomlinson. Within a reasonable amount of time, the house was sold at a price we were satisfied with. Of course, as owners we thought the asking price was just right but because of Fay's tenacity we came to the decision that the asking price was too high. We had not listened to the asking price advice so she just gently proved to us that the price was indeed inflated.
The apartment that we bought through Fay was just what we were looking for. We recommend Fay to you, whether buying or selling as we were happy with her work and would call her again in the future.

Fay helped me find my first home back in 1995 and when we were in the market for a larger condo in 2008, I immediately thought of her. I remembered the good honest service that Fay had provided thirteen years earlier and I was pleased to discover that she was still in the real estate business, so of course I got in touch with her. Fay is knowledgeable about the local market, sensitive to her clients needs and very helpful. We do not hesitate to recommend her if you are thinking of buying or selling.

My husband and myself have been using Fay Tomlinson for a few years now. She has helped us buy a house and a duplex. She is very easy going, with a very thorough knowledge of buying and selling. She checks for the facts, is thorough with inspections, met all our needs, and is very honest. She was recommended from friends who have bought and sold several few homes with her as well. I will continue to use Fay for any and all new home purchases we make in the future. We quite readily will send friends and family to Fay. I highly recommend Fay to anyone for her knowledge and if she does not have an answer she will find out the answer, which is rare today..
