Kalvinder Bassi

Managing Broker

Beginning with building homes in residential development in 1982, Kalvinder has since ventured through land development and assembly, as well as commercial and industrial real estate before adopting his current role as a managing broker. Kal’s genuine love of Greater Vancouver’s real estate industry has remained evident from his dutiful service to clients, to his diligent attendance of Sutton Group – 1st West Realty brokerage affairs. Kal holds sincerity as the core tenet of his approach, whether in assisting clients through buying and selling properties for any particular purpose, or in seeking to meet the needs of Sutton Group’s stellar professionals, ensuring that everyone is empathetically heard while working towards solutions with the utmost integrity. Kal’s unshakable honesty has helped him to make lifelong friends of his satisfied clients while inspiring a similarly sincere humility in the service-providing agents who rely on him.

Kal has trained and coached Realtors across various industry topics, trends and strategies towards success for the past decade, finding fulfillment in making new friends from all sorts of backgrounds. Kal’s educational guidance strives to instill a sense of long term thinking within others, helping them to view the profession as a journey rather than a scheme, whether in realizing fiscal responsibilities and goals, or in persevering through difficulties and market downtrends. While real estate is often described as a “people business”, Kal’s advice actualizes the concept by revealing the true fun of the realty profession and showing how a sense of humor and personability can truly take you a long way in this industry; encompassing that the true value of real estate rests with the people rather than the properties.

“It’s the best place to be, helping people from all walks of life.”

When he isn’t hard at work assisting clients in their real estate endeavors, uplifting agents at Sutton Group – 1st West Realty, or educating students at Sutton Group Academy, Kal enjoys a little gardening, cycling, and spending most of his free time with family.
