About Jean Seguin, PREC
Jean Seguin is a real estate expert and a former restaurant owner based in Vancouver. He started as an investor in 2001, and in 2004 became the owner and restaurateur of the local favorite establishment, Smoking Dog Bistro. Jean’s French bistro operated for quite a time within the lower Kitsilano region until he chose to sell his business in November 2010. After selling the restaurant, Jean went back to his first career and got involved with real estate operating in the Vancouver, B.C. area.
Jean’s success with real estate can be attributed to not only his experience but also to his love for building relationships with customers. His time spent as a restaurateur allowed him opportunities to listen to and immediately provide for his demanding clients; these traits carried over to his role as a REALTOR. That he has experience in selling real estate other than commercial property makes him a very versatile adviser in all things realty.
In addition to his considerable real estate knowledge, Jean is also a digital marketing expert. He owns socialtrendz.ca, a firm that provides Internet marketing services for mainly his own brands and mostly used as an in house marketing team. His familiarity with online promotions helps him sell businesses on the Web.
As a former owner and operator of his own restaurant, Jean knows first-hand the difficulties of selling a restaurant, particularly within the Vancouver area. With both his commercial and residential real estate skills, business owners who need help selling restaurants could not ask for a better and more experienced restaurant broker than Jean. By enlisting his aid, business owners can put up their Vancouver restaurants for sale through his listing service (and through RE/MAX) and find a larger audience of buyers.
Jean Seguin is fully dedicated to helping owners sell their restaurants immediately for top dollar through his many web platforms and online presence. He promises a high return on investment for his services, and he will give his all for every task. Both his offline and online marketing programs give him an edge over other brokers, and his association with RE/MAX further improves the exposure of the properties he is helping sell. Coupled with his intimate understanding of the Vancouver realty market, he is a reliable professional to entrust the sale of your restaurant with.
