The following testimonials were written by just some of my happy sellers and buyers. They have all been kind enough to give me permission to show you their correspondence. Their letters and words are very gratifying. It seems that my down-to-earth and honest approach has earned me many friends - I think that's fantastic!
Professionalism, and work ethic are second to none...
Cosmo’s knowledge, professionalism, and work ethic are second to none. The value he brings extends beyond any realtor that we have dealt with in the past. Cosmo truly cared about what we were looking for in a home. What impressed us the most is that on homes that we looked at, and showed some interest, he always provided us with candid and professional feedback. We have purchased homes in the past and this is the first time that we did not second-guess our decision. Also, Cosmo went the extra mile to make all the “paperwork” seamless for us. We have already spoken to several friends and co-workers regarding our experience. We have and will continue to recommend Cosmo. He really does live up to his slogan, “It’s all about the client”.

Over and above commitment, effort and dedication...
With Appreciation and Gratitude I am writing this letter in recognition, appreciation and gratitude for the “over and above” commitment, effort and dedication my real estate agent displayed during my time of alarm in search of a new home.
I had sold my previous home and the possession date was fast approaching. I could not find a place to call my own and as the time drew closer, my alarm increased to panic. Each day that I found several homes to view, my realtor calmly, graciously and professionally researched, scheduled and supplied maps with timelines to view these homes. Some days we looked at up to 8 homes in a wide ranging area of the community I wished to live. I never believed this could be done, but the realtor carefully and thoroughly drew out the paths we would take in order not to be backtracking and wasting time.
Day after day we met the realtor and piled into his van (as there were three of us), and he chauffeured us to view home after home without victory. The realtor never once pressed or pushed me into making a decision for his own benefit, but rather took the time to understand what kind of a home I desired.
The realtor demonstrated patience and concern for my predicament and, I believe, went beyond the “call of duty” due to his dedication and consistent work with us. On the last day we felt we had to find a home after unsuccessfully looking all day, the realtor had scheduled one last viewing (and I have to say, one that he chose). At the point of feeling hopeless and terribly discouraged, we drove into the driveway of this last viewing and knew this was “home”. We put in an offer and after little negotiation and a lot of assistance from the realtor, the offer was accepted.
I am now in my new home and am very happy thanks to the realtor. So, when I hear others say that real estate agents benefit far too much for their little efforts, I can only recommend one real estate agent that does work for his client in any way he can, his name is Cosmo Spagnuolo and I am very proud to call him “my realtor”.
With all the time Cosmo devoted to me as well as dealing with his other clientele, I now consider him to be not only a first rate, moral, worthy, and respectable realtor, but also a friend.
Thank you Cosmo for being the best.
Sincerely and affectionately,
We would not hesitate to use his services again in the future.
It is with great pleasure that we write to recommend the services of Cosmo Spagnuolo. He made the selling and the purchasing process very easy for us. He listened to what we wanted and did not pressure us to look beyond the parameters we had set. In the sale of our home he was most helpful in tips on how to make our home most presentable for the sale. From the open houses that he held to the handling of offers. Regarding our purchase of a new home, he showed us several townhouses and was very patient with us throughout our search. We found our new home and are very happy! The entire process, from the day we signed a contract with him to be our realtor to the day we closed on our house was a mere six weeks. He recommended the very best in the field to aid us, with a list of local Legal and Home inspection services that were able to help us as well. His advice and guidance through this process was invaluable. His attention to detail, knowledge of the field and no-pressure approach was greatly appreciated. We appreciated his fine sense of humour as well. We would not hesitate to use his services again in the future.
Cosmo`s enthusiastic personality and extensive knowledge... To whom it may concern regarding Cosmo Spagnuolo
My wife April and I recently purchased a home in North Burnaby British Columbia with the help of Cosmo. As first time homeowners we were quite nervous about the process of buying a home. We had a ton of questions all of which were answered promptly by Cosmo in a professional and courteous manner. Being unsure of what location would suit our needs as a family, Cosmo not only suggested areas that might work for us, but went out of his way to show us a variety of suitable neighborhoods. Cosmo’s enthusiastic personality and extensive knowledge made the process of buying a home for the first time an enjoyable one for my family and I. We could not be happier with our new home and would recommend the services of Cosmo Spagnuolo to anyone in need. If we were to require those services again in the future, Cosmo will be the first and only one we call.
Sincere thanks for the excellent service...
Sandra and I are now somewhat settled in our new home and I wanted to express our sincere thanks for the excellent service you have provided over the past few months. Had it not been for your quick response in advising us when the home was listed on the market and the very efficient way you handled the negotiations, we may not have been able to complete the purchase on such favourable terms.
We also appreciate the ongoing attention to all the details leading up to taking possession of our property. We would not hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends for their real estate needs.
Thanks for everything
Don't underestimate this man...
Don't underestimate this man, or let the happy-go-lucky facade fool you. Cosmo Spagnuolo is sharp, driven, and efficient. He is also a shrewd negotiator who knows the market. Cosmo was recommended to me by a close friend; I contacted him while I was still in New Brunswick preparing to move back to BC. I arrived in Vancouver on a Thursday.
On Friday, I selected 16 must-see properties from the list of potentials that he had forwarded to me while I was still in New Brunswick. By Saturday morning, he'd somehow managed to schedule viewings of every single property over the weekend. By Sunday night at 9:00 pm I had an accepted offer that was thousands below what I would have been willing to pay for my first choice property. From offer to closing, Cosmo ensured that the entire process was stress-free and seamless. He even footed the possession day cleaning bill when I arrived to find that the former owner had left the place a disgusting mess.
I recommend Cosmo Spagnuolo unreservedly and with enthusiasm. I am certain I will use him again!
