The B.C. Real Estate Association notes that home sales in August 2017 were up 2.4% from August 2016, and the total sales dollar volume was up by 22%. While last year’s foreign buyer tax and a more recent change in interest rates temporarily slowed activity, the housing market continues to be as strong as it has ever been. With so much activity in the real estate market, it is imperative that anyone who is looking to buy or sell a home should find experienced, quality real estate services. One need not look further than Ike Sekhon and Sunny Hundal of Terra-West.
Ike Sekhon studied business marketing in Melbourne, Australia and immigrated to Canada 11 years ago. After dabbling in several different ventures, he turned to Real Estate marketing, studied at UBC Sauder School of Business, and soon after that became a licensed Realtor.
Sunny Hundal came to Canada on a student visa in 1999 and studied in Ontario as well as locally at Kwantlen University. He obtained his diploma in business management. He met Ike while studying to be a realtor and several years later they decided to partner up to form Terra-West.
The Terra-West name came from the group’s desire to find a term that summed up who they were; Terra refers to the earth and West refers to their being based on the Westcoast of Canada.
What Terra-West translates into for home buyers and sellers is exceptional service, extensive experience, and unparalleled expertise. Terra-West is part of the Re/Max real estate firm. Sunny advises that Terra-West is built upon “experience, education, and passion.”
As immigrants to Canada, Sunny and Ike are both familiar with the experience of adjusting to new surroundings, as well as the pride many immigrants as well as those born here have in home ownership. People who come to Terra-West will encounter professional, high-quality services. “Real estate is our passion,” Sunny advises. “If somebody is trusting you, you must do the highest quality work for them. We explain everything clearly to our clients. We want to make sure they understand everything, so there are no surprises. We treat our customers the way we would want to be treated. The fact that we are a team with a diverse range of expertise is a huge help. When clients are dealing with one of us, they understand they’re working with the whole team. It makes our service exceptional.” Ike notes that “we try and make sure the entire process is hassle-free.”
Sunny and Ike both have a strong work ethic that translates into the highest quality of services to their clients. “We are successful because we work as a team, and are fair to everyone we work with,” Ike explains. “In this country, you can achieve what you want,” Sunny adds. “As long as you are honest and willing to work hard. The sky is the limit.”
Outside of their work, both Ike and Sunny spend time with their respective families as well as being involved in several community initiatives. Terra-West sponsors field hockey tournaments and provides school supplies to lower income children and youth locally as well as in India. Re/Max is also a major contributor to local charities. “We want to give back to the community, to this country, that has given us so much,” Sunny explains. “And we want to make sure our efforts have an impact,” Ike adds. “So we visited India and made sure the supplies got to the children that needed it.”
