This comprehensive website specializes in real estate in the Surrey, South Surrey, White Rock, Langley, N. Delta and surrounding area for both buyers and sellers. Based in the South Surrey, White Rock area, Mike Alleyne and the Alleyne Team (Homelife Realty) provide their clients with an unparalleled level of service. They have chosen to practice with HomeLife given the unique tools the agency provides to their realtors and to their clients.
Michael Alleyne and Janet Gulbransen represent their clients in residential real estate. The Alleyneteam is very passionate about customer service in real estate and pride themselves on the testimonials they have received.
Surrey, South Surrey, White Rock and Langley are very vibrant areas of the lower mainland. They are close enough to drive into downtown Vancouver for a hockey game, musical, or just a night out. Yet by pulling slightly south of the beautiful mountains surrounding downtown Vancouver, you have less rain and also a slightly milder climate. In South Surrey and White Rock, there is still lots of night life, yet there is a slightly slower pace. Surrey is known as the “City of Parks”. South Surrey and White Rock have their share of the parks, and many beaches as well.
The homes in this area will accommodate most buyers, given they range from one bedroom White Rock condos, to estate homes in South Surrey. There are also many wonderful neighbouring communities such as Cloverdale, Langley, Tsawwassen and greater Surrey.
Drop us a line and introduce yourself. You will see from our testimonials that we never pressure our clients. Real estate transactions (whether buying or selling) are huge life decisions, we get that!

Create and Save Custom Searches
Did you know that more than 90% of home buyers do their initial research by themselves on the internet. It's true. It's part of a real estate agents job to do searches for you, but our job is also to give you the tools to search yourself, if you'd like to. If you are like us, you will love searching MLS to find that jewel, the one that could be your future home. If you are searching South Surrey real estate, for example, we can create a custom search for you. You will find the results of those searches in your in basket. If you like, we can give you a quick call if a particular South Surrey real estate listing gem is listed on MLS.
If you like a particular area of Surrey, White Rock or Langley and are watching for homes in that area to come for sale; you can monitor it yourself if you like. Enter your criteria once and save it. Set up email notifications for any new listings that match! It's that easy!

Mike Alleyne and Janet Gulbransen, Real Estate Agents
Mike and Janet are amazing people. We feel
fortunate to know them and to have worked with them
to find a White Rock home. We worked mainly with
Mike, but Janet covered for him, so were delighted to
get to know her as well. Together they worked so
hard for us and on our ridiculous timetable. My husband
said "who knew home hunting could be so much fun".
We never expected to like our realtors so much and to
actually miss seeing them so regularly.

View New Listings Before The Public
Did you know that we see listings two days before the general public? It's very true. Sometimes a hot property is sold before it even hits the public sites. Do you have a particular neighbourhood, or specific property type in mind? Are you searching South Surrey real estate for example. Are you looking for South Surrey townhomes in particular? Do you want us to set up a search for you that captures these early listings. Let us know. No pressure.
Rate & Add Notes To Listings
When searching for real estate, it's hard to remember which property you've seen, which you like, whether it's on a busy street, near a park, etc. You can make notes on the Surrey, White Rock or Langley properties you like. Rank them out of 5 stars and print feature sheets for any listings.
Buying A Home

Selling Your Home
How We Sell Your Home
Using traditional skills still work, but it's a new era. Technology plays a massive role in real estate marketing now. Despite what some realtors say, putting a property on MLS alone doesn't cut it anymore. Realtors need to do Open Houses, and marketing the heck out of that. They also need to Facebook, Twitter, Pin It, and in some cases video it. You need gorgeous pictures and that doesn't mean using a iPhone camera. Your realtor needs to reach not only the buyers who are already looking, but also those who are not.
Our online marketing system makes information accessible 24-hours a day to each and every prospective buyer.
I will ensure your home is open and available to home buyers via open houses.
There are many factors in being a good realtor, but negotiating is king. We pride ourselves on our negotiating skills. Mike had a long term business career prior to becoming a realtor which included negotiating complicated deals for Parks Canada. Janet, is a CPA and Chartered Accountant and also had a very successful business career. We bring this skill set to our clients. We will absolutely make sure we leave nothing on the table.
