about steve klassen

For more than 27 years I’ve been in the real estate business and to say that a lot has changed would be a huge understatement. But here’s the thing: to me, real estate has never been about properties, it’s been about people. About helping, guiding, and assisting families in order to achieve their goals, and that’s something that’s never changed.

I HAVE EXPERIENCE AND EDUCATION

  • Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of British Columbia with a specialization in Urban Land Economics.
  • Associate Broker designation.
  • I am dedicated to continuing education in areas of real estate, real estate law, and other real estate and business-related issues.
  • I have experience as a Residential Construction Manager overseeing the building of residential homes, coordinating sub-trades, and making sure costs were within budget.


I PRIORITIZE COMMUNICATION

  • Active listening, idea clarification, objection handling, presenting of options, and working with my clients to reach their real estate goals.


I VALUE ACCURACY AND ETHICS

  • Fulfilling promises, keeping accurate records of conversations and communications, and making it a priority to be on time for appointments.
  • Applying the rules and regulations of my profession without compromise.
  • Commitment to truthfulness and honesty.


I UTILIZE MY EXTENSIVE NETWORKS

  • Successfully interacting with people within my sphere of influence. 
  • Finding and increasing my base of clients through various promotional strategies


I HAVE SYSTEMS TO ENSURE EFFICIENCY

  • Using a systematic approach to real estate transactions ensures that I do what I say and that your goals are met.
  • Achieving efficiency through proper application of communication with the help of technology, accuracy with knowledge, networking, and work ethic.


I HAVE BEEN PROFESSIONALLY RECOGNIZED

  • I am a “Medallion Club” Realtor whose production ranks in the top 1% of all Realtors in the Fraser Valley. I am also recognized as a member of the RE/MAX Diamond Club, the esteemed RE/MAX Hall of Fame, and am a recipient of the RE/MAX Lifetime Achievement Award.


I HAVE A LONG TERM FOCUS

  • I depend on your repeat business and referrals. Your complete satisfaction and subsequent referrals are the basis of my future business, and only when you receive the highest level of service will you feel comfortable referring your family, friends, and work associates to me. I want to build strong, lifelong relationships one client at a time.


THE KLASSEN FAMILY

I am the father of six active children who enjoy dirt biking together, visiting Osoyoos, and getting together with extended family who live in the area. Now, four of my family members are a part of my team at work. Cindy, my wife, handles the professional staging, Adrianna, my daughter, is our Realtor Assistant, Morgan, my daughter-in-law, is the Director of Marketing & Social Media, and Jude, my son, has decided to follow in my footsteps and become a Realtor himself, joining the Klassen Real Estate Group.


MAKING A DIFFERENCE

My wife Cindy and I adopted three of our children Mireya (2006), Nicole (2010), and Andy (2017) from the Philippines, and have continued to support orphan care ministries in the Philippines. We also support a ministry called Hope for the Island that serves the impoverished, orphaned, widowed, sick, and uneducated. We are key financial supporters for Hope for the Island, and I now serve on the Board of Hope for the Island Ministries. I have also provided financial support to the Langley Food Bank, Easter Seals 24-Hour Relay For Kids (which raises money to send children with disabilities to summer camp), World Vision (a relief organization dedicated to helping children), Ride to Conquer Cancer, the RE/MAX Lunch Program, and to my home church of Cloverdale Baptist Church.
