About Us

Many agents offer lofty claims, stats and figures, but how many commit themselves to the values of their client? At Elevation, we marry our regional insight with your buying or selling priorities, fostering a holistic approach to the client-agent relationship.



Elevation Real Estate Team

Our Vision

Real estate doesn't have to be overwhelming, instead it should be exciting.

We've dedicated ourselves to combining in-depth industry insight with creative solutions to facilitate an enjoyable buying and selling experience.

Through this, we guide our clients through the education of their marketplace conditions, evaluation of their property potential and negotiation of their desired outcome.

Our Team

We comprise a team of experienced agents that know, live and love the Fraser Valley.

We could tell you about our combined 70 years of experience or flaunt that we have achieved recognition for continually being  in the top 1% of Realtors in the Fraser Valley, but that would be too braggadocios.

Instead, we’ll tell you that we are in this because we care about people and that you can expect the same care and attention that we would give our granny.

Art of Negotiation

Joel Schacter

Team Leader / Residential/Commercial/ Development

Due to his longevity in this industry, Joel Schacter has reasonable experience in almost all areas of real estate. He has been successful in land assembly work, rezones and development consulting, commercial sales and leasing. His greatest joy, however, is still sitting across the kitchen table from a young couple assisting them through the process of buying their first home, townhome or condominium or with a Mom and Dad discussing their downsizing and retirement options.

Joel thrives in meeting new people and turning a business relationship into a more personal friendship that long outlasts the completion of any one transaction. He enjoys learning about who they are, where they came from and what their dreams and aspirations are and then seeing how he can be a part of that. After so many successful years in the real estate industry, there are very few circumstances that have occurred of which Joel has not been able to work through a creative win-win solution. He loves the challenge of meeting his client's goals.

Joel and Sharon have been married for over 44 years and they have 2 sons, 3 grandsons and one granddaughter. While others enjoy golfing in their free time, he would rather spend it playing with his grandchildren, travelling to explore new parts of the world, visiting family or occasionally dreaming about completing his private pilot training. When not doing one of the above you can find Joel volunteering at the Langley Food Bank as a Director of the Board or working with our less fortunate residents on Friday food distribution days. He also actively volunteers in his church and in the Langley community.
