Happy Holidays from our family to yours


happy holidays from Paul Albrighton's family


2020 proved to be a challenging year for all of us.  This New Year I am wishing you health and safety, and sharing my optimism for a better 2021. Thank you again for another year of your trust and referrals, it has been a pleasure working with some of my clients for the long term, with some over 12 years.  

We continue supporting the Transplant Research Foundation of BC since 2017, by contributing 1% of our annuals profits back to this cause. As a transplant recipient I would certainly not be here today writing this message without the innovation and research of Transplants in BC.  I am thankful most of all this year to my supporting colleagues and team mates, my family and fantastically loyal clients. I encourage you to consider donating to this cause, or if you have not registered yet to be an organ donor, please do so.  1 donor can save up to 8 lives.  Register at:

I’m forever grateful for your support and look forward to speaking with you soon.  Have a fantastic 2021! 

- Paul Albrighton

Comments by Paul: 

"We sold this unique home in 2017, and still remains one of the most exciting homes I have every worked with.  There was a great story to both the seller and buyer involved, it went from being one mans legacy dream home onto another owner who still loves and enjoys every details of the home to this day.  The updates and work completed after the purchase, still involved the original architect Fook Weng Chan, and has been brought up to modern standards complimenting the original design to every last detail, while offering great modern features and new fixtures“

Organ Donation Saves Lives



Organ donation saved my life...

Paul Albrighton Picture December 2020 - "Organ donation saved my life"

ORGAN DONATION SAVED MY LIFE. We continue supporting the Transplant Research Foundation of BC. This week we donated 1% of our profits to this charity.  As a multi-organ transplant recipient, I would certainly not be here today posting this message without the innovation and research of organ transplants in BC.  I encourage you to consider donating to the Transplant Research Foundation of BC, or if you have not yet registered to be an organ donor, please consider it.


1 donor can save up to 8 lives.
