Ian Watt: Hi Good Afternoon. It's Ian Watt in Downtown Vancouver. About 2 or 3 months ago, I'd been to a property and I just fell in love with it I thought it was fantastic it was not my listing. But it expired about a month ago and I went after it because I wanted this. I wanted this listing and I never chase after business like that. But I had to do it in this situation because I wanted to prove that I could sell this property. Its in Gastown  and Gastown for the 800 to a million dollar range is not really heard of. It doesn't happen very often. But in this situation I knew I could sell it to the right alternative professional so to speak. Maybe like a game or an architect or something like that. So what it happened was I've sent off a video camera, a flip cam to the guy who didn't live in Vancouver and out of town owner. Recording myself in front of his place and said " You know what? I'm gonna give this camera whether you work with me or not. I just wanna show you how much I want this listing. So he gave me the lisitng and 22 days later, I sold it. And it had been with 3 or 4 other realtors in the meantime. And maybe I'm just a lucky guy, the right time, the right price, the right marketing maybe. Or maybe it has something to do with me. I don't know, we'll never know. But nonetheless, it's sold and I'm so excited. This is my trophy sale of the year. It's 120 Powell. Its a record price for that area for the last couple of years that's for sure. If you're having trouble selling you place and maybe you're thinking of putting it on the market or changing up your realtor. My name is Ian Watt. You can always email me at ianwatt@ianwatt.ca. Thank you very much and have a great day!
