CO-OP AGENT Jonathan Goodwill, Dexter Associates Realty

The Action: This renovated two-bedroom suite at Palais Georgia near Stanley Park was listed for $899,000 right after last year’s Olympic Games, but with noisy construction in full swing on a development right across the street, there were no offers.

Agent Jonathan Goodwill and his clients took notice of the place when the construction noise tailed off and it was relisted at $799,000. They negotiated a deal for $760,000.

What They Got: The 1,212-square-foot suite is larger than newer condominiums, but is an average size for the high-rise with a spacious dining area with access to a balcony and an open living area off the U-shaped kitchen, as well as two private sleeping quarters and two full bathrooms.

The appointments are luxurious and include hardwood flooring, a gas fireplace and floor-to-ceiling windows facing northwest.

The unit came with furnishing, kitchen and laundry appliances, a locker and underground parking.

The monthly fee of $444 covers the maintenance cost of a common gym, indoor pool and hot tub.

The Agent’s Take: “My buyers are a young family who love the location, lifestyle and value in a 20-year-old building that has been well maintained by a pro-active strata council,” Mr. Goodwill says. “Although just on the fourth floor, this unit offers good views to the water and mountains over the newly built West Pender Place town homes.”
