When he was still a teenager, Artyom Seroff left his rural Kazakhstan village to study in Vancouver. After a fortuitous meeting with the owner of Rennie and Associates Realty, Seroff decided to augment his UBC education with real estate courses. A few short years later, Seroff is one of Rennie and Associates most promising young agents. Despite only selling one property in his first year as an agent in 2013, Seroff completed over 40 transactions in 2016, showing that he is in the industry to stay.
Despite being a millennial agent born into the limitless potential of a social media world, Seroff does not currently advertise.
“I think that people are so overwhelmed with commercialization and false promises that they just look for good, honest long-term relationships,” he says. “Judging by experience, word of mouth remains the best marketing strategy. I can see myself expanding my online presence in the future, but the core of how I conduct my business will never change.”
