Thanks for visiting my website! I'm Justin Pokrant, a Realtor in Winnipeg, Manitoba, helping people in Winnipeg and the surrounding communities buy and sell homes. I encourage you to take a look through my website for highlights on our lovely city, listings currently for sale, information and tips for buyers and sellers, my marketing plan for getting houses sold, and my commitment to buyers. If you have any real estate related questions, or would like to sign up to receive listings on the market, please don't hesitate to contact me. I love what I do but what I love more is to help people through their next real estate adventure :)
Let Me Help You Sell!
A first impression can make or break a sale. The first thing a potential buyer usually sees when browsing properties is a visual representation of your house or condo - online and in print. If your listing has poor quality pictures, a lackluster video, or plain looking feature sheets and ads, there is a high risk of your property being passed over. If buyers aren't impressed with what they see in your listing, they have very little reason to visit in person.
I specialize in making your property stand out amongst a crowd of others by providing the highest quality marketing material in the business. My extensive educational and previous career-related background in video editing, camera operating, professional photography, graphic design and marketing makes me an agent with a significant edge on the competition. I also do all the work myself instead of hiring outside companies who aren’t familiar with your property, making it that much more effective.
I would love to meet with you in person and show you samples of what I can do to attract as many buyers as possible to your listing, instead of losing them before they even have a chance to walk in the door.
To make your property show it's best and have the highest possibility of selling for top dollar I provide the following services as part of my marketing and client care plan:
- Inspect your property and perform a comparative market analysis to know what similar properties have recently sold for, and present you with the most effective listing price
- Advise you on how to stage furniture and fix minor problems in order to attract buyers
- Post a detailed home listing on a number of real estate websites and print magazines including MLS/REALTOR.CA, Winnipeg Real Estate News, Winnipeg Free Press, buy and sell websites like Kijiji, my personal website, social media including Instagram, Facebook, and Linkedin, Century 21 International Website and a host of others.

Let Me Help You Buy!
Having someone who can sympathize with and understand your current situation, while also looking out for your best interests are important traits for an agent to have when you are shopping for a home.
I bought my first condo when I was only a year out of college, renovated it and then upgraded to a bigger house two years later. I am now on to my third house, which is currently undergoing a major transformation. I also grew up with a father who built over 20 houses so I have a strong understanding of house construction that will take the worry out of wondering if the property you like was a quick flip destined to fall apart, or a sound, reliable investment.
I have been through it all and would love to guide you through the process, sharing my unique knowledge with you and making sure you avoid common mistakes, whether it be for first time home buyers, or families who just can't seem to find the right house. You need someone who can take the guesswork out of the equation. Someone who can work around your ever-changing schedule. Someone who is patient and understanding if you need to reschedule appointments or decide you want a fixer-upper instead of a downtown condo months after starting your property search. Someone who is a good listener and can understand exactly what you are looking for. Someone who can prescreen properties for you so you don't waste your valuable time looking at unsuitable options. Someone who doesn’t leave you on your own as soon as the sale closes. I am all of the above.
I am also very tech-savvy. I embrace technology and use it as one of the many avenues of communication with clients via social media websites, e-mail, and text. It allows me to reply almost instantly to any questions or concerns you have and be there for you at the click of a mouse.
I’d love to help you take the next big step in your life so let’s work together to get you into something a little bit more comfortable.
Relocating to Winnipeg?
Whether buying or selling your home, Justin is the realtor you want. He is patient, knowledgeable, and professional. Without him we never would have found our dream house - he listened carefully to our requests and led us to exactly what we were looking for, and it wasn't even listed on the market. When it came time to sell, we could not have asked for a better experience. His incredible photography, videography, and showing suggestions brought in countless buyers. The process was smooth, rapid, and gave us a fantastic sell. Justin is an exceptional realtor and I recommend him to anyone who wants a great real estate result.

We pretty much knew from the time we first received Justin's marketing material, at a time we weren't even looking to sell our house, that we would use him as an agent. Meeting him and having a thorough conversation about his approach to real estate sealed the deal. On top of being extremely knowledgeable about the current status of the Winnipeg real estate market, Justin provided a great energy throughout the entire process that helped us stay relaxed and positive during the sale of our home. The only downfall was that his eye for photography and artistic capabilities with video brought out the beauty of our home in such a way that it made us fall in love with the place all over again. I cannot speak highly enough about Justin, who stands out as a professional in a field that needs more individuals like him. Not only did we gain a real estate agent that we will use again and recommend to friends, we gained a friend in which we can share a few laughs. Thanks for helping us move forward to a new beginning, Justin.

We were moving internationally and needed to sell our home right around the new year. With all of the other things we needed to get ready for our overseas move we were concerned that selling our home could be a major headache. On top of it all we only had about five weeks of notice. Luckily we met Justin and he turned one of the biggest potential stress points of our move to the easiest. He sat down with us and presented a game plan for pricing, promotions and showing of the home. It made the process so easy and we knew immediately we could trust him. Sure enough, with his hard work we sold our home on the first day for exactly what we were asking! If we ever move back to Winnipeg we will be going straight back to Justin to help us again. We can’t recommend him enough.

Just wanted to take a moment and say thanks for all your help viewing and ultimately finding the place we wanted. It felt like a long haul but we are REALLY happy with the house and we're really pleased with how it all worked out working with you. We've been busy this weekend cleaning and prepping for great future tenants...!!
- Sharon & Esteban
Big thanks for guiding me through the wonderful world of Winnipeg real estate and also for babysitting my house. You certainly helped make this entire process as painless as possible and I'll be recommending your services to friends and colleagues for sure.
Justin was very professional in everything he undertook. I would recommend him to anyone wishing to sell their property quickly. He sold mine in under 10 days and to my extreme satisfaction.
Having had horrible real estate agent experience in the past, Justin was a welcome surprise when choosing him to sell our house for us. His background in creative communications resulted in amazing marketing material and magazine worthy photos of our home. He got so many people through our door and an unexpected 6 offers on the offer date! He is an extremely hardworking and knowledgeable resource and went above and beyond to make sure the process ran smoothly. We will definitely recommend Justin to anyone looking to buy or sell!
- Tracy & Russ
We cannot express how pleased we have been to have had the opportunity to work with Justin over the last year! First, Justin's attention to detail and amazing photography skills helped me sell my beloved condo in less than a week! Shortly after my husband and I got married, we began our search for our new home, with Justin's help. Justin was very patient and always professional as he really listened to what it was that we are looking for. We recently found an amazing house with the yard of our dreams. Justin has gone above and beyond in offering us a wealth of knowledge into undertaking a renovation, and seeking professionals to make our dreams a reality. We cannot wait to recommend Justin to our friends and family in the future!
