Michelle Yu PREC has been one of Metro Vancouver’s real estate leaders for over 28 years. The brand Michelle Yu PREC has become synonymous in the successful purchase and sale of her client’s properties; she also has extensive expertise in land assembly for over a decade.

The award-winning RE/MAX realtor and her team has big plans to share for this year and for 2024.

“I am grateful to my teammates for our solid system and structure in place that reduces so much of my burden, “ says Yu, who gives credit to the talented people who she has shared their combined success and career paths with; some of whom for as long as 35 years in the same office.  The combined knowledge and expertise in the office exemplifies their success as leaders in the industry.

Yu’s brokerage has the longest history of any RE/MAX in the City of Vancouver. It was first established in 1986 and located in Oakridge Centre, the location of the upcoming Oakridge Park. During the construction of the mega project, which is morphing the original shopping centre into a state-of-the-art shopping, residential, entertainment, and workspace, Yu’s office has moved out temporarily to the Kerrisdale area. In 2024, she and her team will move back into a posh new office space owned by Yu herself.

“Oakridge Park is located in the most central location in Vancouver, it’s a great office for clients to locate us as RE/MAX agents. We have a very knowledgeable managing broker. Not many real estate firms have such a sound environment, with an experienced managing broker and support staff available full time. It’s not easy to find, and we have the resources and support for agents to reach their next level of success.”

That leaves 2023 to gear up for the big move back ‘home’, but Yu is clearly up to the challenge of preparing this whole new workspace.

“There is much to do for this AAA strata office, including the interior design amd décor to create the best atmosphere for a productive work environment to call our second home.” 

The new home will include the latest technology and amenities, such as the touchless automated door system, medical grade air filtration system, a community/aquatic centre, medical offices, parks, a running track, and valet parking. “We need to make sure our team is taken good care of,” says Yu. 

With a good work/life balance front and centre for most of us after a long pandemic, the perks of the new RE/MAX space makes it extra appealing. “Being a realtor is a stressful job, so it’s nice to have green space with nearby parks, shopping, restaurants, community centre, SkyTrain and library all close by,” she says.

At the start of 2023, Yu is excited to launch the RE/MAX Mentorship Program. “If you want to learn from the best, that’s us,” she says. “Top realtors can share their knowledge and experience with new agents or agents who want to take their business to the next level. We inspire each other and keep each other accountable.”

Yu says she is busy seeking out new agents who have the passion for real estate, who are keen to be successful, and ready to give back to the community. “I am looking for full-time realtors who take their career very seriously. We are interested in experienced, mature, and new agents.”

Yu’s brokerage currently has several top producers with expertise in residential, commercial, land assembly and  pre-sell projects. “They have the skills and experiences to share and will coach our new agents,” she says. “Our training, conferences and network opportunities are extensive at RE/MAX. I have confidence that the quality of our realtors will make us the top office in Vancouver.”
