Meet your local experts: Jessica and John

Jessica and John started in 2014 to combine their two diverse backgrounds and skill sets into a powerful combination that represents the evolution of real estate focusing on the Tri-Cities.

Jessica Chen-Sargent brings an impressive skill set to go with her drive to help you with the real estate deal you want to make. She attended one of the most prestigious high schools in Shenzhen, China, and moved to Canada on her own at the age of 17 in order to earn an engineering degree from the University of Toronto. Jessica aced her real estate licensing exam at UBC and has also been working since then in marketing and pre-sales development projects across Metro Vancouver. Having grown up in China, watching her mother manage the renovation and construction of apartment buildings, Jessica brings a unique understanding of Chinese values to her work, along with her fluency in Mandarin and Cantonese. One of her proudest achievements has been the development and delivery of the first Chinese version of the “Buyer Beware” real estate seminar.

John Grasty has a well-established reputation as a strong voice in homeowner advocacy in the Lower Mainland. You’ll know him as the co-founder of the Coalition of Leaky Condominiums Owners (COLCO), a member of the National Advisory Council for Canadians for Properly Built Homes, and winner of the 2010 REALTORS Care® Award. John is a sought-after media commentator on homeowner issues and has represented them in television and radio interviews, panels, stakeholder roundtables, and government meetings. John brings over 19 years of homeowner advocacy and leadership experience to helping Sellers and Buyers successfully achieve their real estate objectives. These days, John is more of a mentor to Jessica, as John eases slowly into retirement. He is keeping active, involved, and up to date with local real estate news and legislation to support Jessica while she takes the reigns in the office.

With this powerful combination of skills and experience, Jessica and John bring you real estate evolved, taking you and your real estate goals to a new level with the right tools, ethical representation, unwavering support, and their specialized knowledge and experience as local experts in Port Moody and Coquitlam.
