Introducing Stilhavn Real Estate Services

Share Article

Relationship-driven. Results-focused. Strategy-led.

As some of you might have heard, early Fall of 2018, a select group of Vancouver’s top performing real estate teams came together under a new real estate brokerage called “Stilhavn Real Estate Services”.

We’re thrilled by the support and excitement generated around Stilhavn, and now that we’ve launched, we’re ready to share more with you.

On that note, let’s dive in:


Why was Stilhavn Real Estate Services Created?

In short, we wanted to assemble a group of like-minded peers committed to raising the standard of real estate in Vancouver in a collaborative, supportive environment.

“Vancouver is beautiful, progressive, yet challenging, all in one. This is an expensive city, and as realtors, we see how that fact affects the lives of our clients daily. We wanted to deliver more value to buyers and sellers with a select group of the city’s top talent, and back them with industry-leading tools, processes, and the insights required to provide unparalleled service to its clientele.” – Ben Chimes, Realtor at Zwick Chimes Real Estate Group


What Does “Stilhavn” Mean?

“Stilhavn” is a play on a number of words in English and Danish that evoke a sense of west coast lifestyle and sanctuary. In English, it can mean “Still Haven”, while in Danish, it can be loosely translated to “calm waters”.

We wanted an approachable name everyone could get behind that spoke to the beauty of Vancouver and the importance of finding a sanctuary.


Who’s involved in Stilhavn?

Stilhavn’s founding teams include the Zwick Chimes Real Estate, the Ruth and David Group, Team Clarke Real Estate Group and Team Kerr Real Estate. Since launch, Stilhavn has grown to just over 40 agents, though the focus remains in growing in quality, not size.
