The Sid + Jacqueline Real Estate Group is a Vancouver-based team of award-winning real estate agents serving downtown Vancouver, North Vancouver, West Vancouver, and other areas throughout Greater Vancouver.

Founded by the mother-son duo of Jacqueline Adler and Sid Koshul, this real estate group is about so much more than just buying and selling homes.

“We are passionate about real estate and providing our clients with the best experience we can as we guide them through the buying and selling process. We are client-focused, and every transaction matters to us because it is important to our clients,” shares Jacqueline.

Vancouver is a perfect home base for the duo, as luxury buyers are attracted to our West Coast city for many of the same reasons that it consistently ranks on “the best places in the world to live” lists – the natural beauty, lifestyle, proximity to nature and outdoor activities, relatively stable economy, and welcoming community.

FROM SOLO AGENT TO FORMING A TEAM

Jacqueline is an award-winning real estate agent, and designated as a Certified Luxury Home Marketing Specialist and Guild Member of the Institute for Luxury Home Marketing. She is a Master Medallion Club Member (having been ranked in the Top 10% of Realtors® in Greater Vancouver for the last six years) and a recipient of the Masters Level & Top Producer Sales Awards from Oakwyn Realty. She also is included in Property Spark‘s list of the ‘Top 100 British Columbia Real Estate Agents on Social Media.’

In 2022, Jacqueline was chosen by their brokerage Oakwyn Realty as the recipient of the Oakwynite of the Year Award, given to the agent who best represents the core values of Oakwyn Realty, which include putting people first, creating a community, and leading by example.

“Referrals and repeat business came early for me due to clients appreciating my service level. “Because of their support, I achieved Medallion Club membership in my first full year (my first goal) and have achieved it every year since.”

“It was my son Sid who pointed out that being a Real Estate Agent presented the perfect opportunity for me to combine my skills and passion. It also ignited my competitive nature (I compete with myself), so early on, I decided to set goals that seemed unobtainable then but that I have since learned were within grasp.”

“The first several years of being a solo agent required very long hours and dedication – to the point where it was almost the singular focus of my life. Things changed when I hired an assistant, and then they really changed when my son Sid, who was a Real Estate Lawyer at the time, left his law career to become a Realtor.”

The pivotal moment for the duo was when they decided to team up and launch the Sid + Jacqueline Real Estate Group. The catalyst for this moment occurred after they were involved in a record-breaking sale – the highest-priced condo sale in Vancouver in almost a decade – a Fairmont Pacific Rim Penthouse with a sale price of $19,300,000.

FROM LAWYER TO AGENT

As a former Real Estate Lawyer, Sid understands the importance of protecting his clients’ best interests, keeping them fully informed, and advocating strongly on their behalf.

After obtaining his Law degree, Sid articled in West Vancouver’s Ambleside Village before working at various law firms in Vancouver’s Financial District and Gastown neighbourhoods, where he developed a successful practice focused on residential real estate and conveyancing matters.

Throughout his time as a ‘go-to’ Real Estate Lawyer that many of BC’s top Realtors and Mortgage Broker’s relied on for advice and who trusted Sid to ensure their clients were taken care of, Sid handled hundreds of closings of both residential purchases and sales each year.

This experience has allowed Sid to bring a unique perspective to his role as a Real Estate Agent, along with professionalism, high attention to detail, exceptional communication, dispute resolution, and organizational skills.

Now as a Real Estate Agent, Sid has received numerous awards, including the Medallion Club Award (for ranking within the Top 10% of Realtors® in Greater Vancouver for the last two years) and the Oakwyn Realty Top Producer Sales Award in 2023. Sid is also included in Property Spark’s list of the ‘Top 100 British Columbia Real Estate Agents on Social Media.’

THE REWARDS OF GIVING BACK

Giving back and being involved in their community is very important to both Sid and Jacqueline, which motivates them and allows them to build strong connections with people from all walks of life.

One of the most rewarding experiences that Sid and Jacqueline have been involved in is the formation of a ‘Circle of Hope’ in support of Rainbow Refugee, which raised over $30,000 to support bringing a refugee, originally from Iran and a member of the LGBTQ+ community, to Vancouver. Sid is also a member of the Dr. Peter AIDS Foundation’s Pride Kickoff Committee, which is responsible for throwing a highly successful annual fundraiser in support of the Dr. Peter Centre and a Committee Member for Ballet BC’s Momentum Gala.

GROWING TOGETHER

“We are proud that in less than a year after forming the Sid + Jacqueline Real Estate Group, our team is ranked among the Top 10 teams at our brokerage, and we want to build on that through ongoing professional development and training that helps us provide top quality services to our clients and stay ahead of market trends and changing regulations.

“We are always seeking to improve our client experience and make buying or selling a property enjoyable and smooth for our clients. We may also add one more team member this year.”

The team is also excited to continue building relationships with other Realtors in luxury markets across the continent to ensure that clients who are looking to sell or buy in other markets can work with Real Estate Agents familiar to them so that they experience the same level of professionalism expected from Sid and Jacqueline’s team.

Their network spans across Canada and throughout North America, in markets that include Whistler, Toronto, Edmonton, Calgary, New York, Palm Springs, Los Angeles, and beyond. Another key benefit of such a network is that it allows them to promote listings to a vast network of agents who work with buyers in the luxury market, expanding their marketing reach beyond BC.

AN INCLUSIVE MISSION

When asked about the importance of community, Jacqueline responded, “We feel fortunate to work in an industry that allows us to make deep connections in our community and to support organizations that improve the lives of so many. Whether it was sponsoring events such as Art Rapture’s ‘The Throwback’ and an Evening in Damascus in support of Rainbow Refugee or supporting charitable or community events we love such as the Dr. Peter Centre Life Commitment Gala and Pride Cocktail Kickoff, the Momentum Gala for Ballet BC, among others, we value sharing time with many wonderful people while celebrating the efforts of those who work to improve the community we live in. Not only does this motivate us to work harder, but it also rewards us through the friendships we enjoy with people who share our values.”
