    Cynthia
    Jagger,
    Principal

    A powerhouse broker and industry advocate, Cynthia provides clients with the most valuable thing in the market: knowledge.

    For our clients, Cynthia answers questions like:

    “If I buy this piece of land, what use would create the highest profit?”

    “If I buy this apartment building today, what rent could I charge now and after renovations?”

    “If I build a new rental project, what will it be worth when it’s finished?”

    Cynthia knows land and multifamily buildings. A former appraiser, she’s consulted to clients on tens of billions of dollars’ worth of commercial real estate in B.C. and hundreds of rental apartment buildings while providing guidance on some of the biggest land deals in Vancouver’s history.

    Since joining Goodman, Cynthia has completed over a billion dollars’ worth of sales in Metro Vancouver. What sets her apart is her ability to get the kind of information you can’t find on Google.

    A voice for the industry

    Cynthia has emerged as a powerful voice for the industry in these uncertain times. Much quoted in the media, she’s been a guest speaker for the Urban Development Institute and has led panels for the Vancouver Real Estate Forum and the Canadian Apartment Investment Conference. Vocal on how urban land economics respond to government regulation, she’s been quoted in the Vancouver Sun, Western Investor, Business in Vancouver and the Vancouver Courier.

    In all of Cynthia’s work, the through line is simple: provide expert advice and numbers that fuel informed decisions and profitable deals.
