David Malkin


David started his first year in business by winning "The Rookie of the Year" award as the number one salesman for all of British Columbia for the major national Canadian real estate company at the time, A.E.LePage. In March 2022, David received Re/Max's 100% Award, a recognition of his continuing ability to stay 'on top of his game'.

David's family has deep roots in Vancouver. His grandfather Philip arrived in Vancouver in 1894 from Stoke-on-Trent, England and was partner with his two brothers in W.H.Malkin & Co., wholesale grocers, located on Water Street in Gastown where The Spaghetti Factory restaurant now operates.

David's great uncle William was Mayor of Vancouver in the early thirties and donated Malkin Bowl, an open-air theatre in Stanley Park, to the City in memory of his first wife, Marion. He also donated Malkin Park in Kerrisdale to the City of Vancouver in 1959. David's father, James, started Malkin and Pinton Industrial Supplies in the late forties and supplied B.C. and Alberta industry from the 50's into the 90's.

David has been a top performer for forty-one years, the last thirty with Re/Max. He is a true gentleman, impeccably honest and will do whatever it takes to help you realize your housing needs and goals.

David has his CRS designation. What is a CRS? The Certified Residential Specialist designation is conferred on North American real estate agents who are in the top 10% of North American real estate agents for production and ability.

David and Susan have raised the fourth generation of Malkins, Allison and Ian, and are the proud grandparents to Elliot and Maggie.

Carrying on the Malkin tradition, Ian has started with Re/Max in 2022.



I feel so fortunate that a friend recommended you as I was downsizing from a house to a condo.  Your detailed knowledge of the condo buildings in my chosen neighbourhood was a  considerable help with my choice of a new home.Selling my house of 42 years seemed a daunting task.  With a few improvements and four days of covid-safe open houses, my modest house drew ten offers, all above asking price and with the necessary time line.  A couple rounds of negotiations resulted in a price $300,000 above what we asked. Throughout this process I felt so supported by your calm manner, clear information, and attention to my wishes. Your thoroughness and patience brought us a great result.I've already recommended you very highly to a friend of a friend who will soon embark on the same process.Many thanks."


"Dear David,
Janis and I are so appreciative of all the work you did both in selling our house and being so pro-active in your search for a condo that would suit us. In the first instance, the sale, you presented us with a lot of options and advice, and we were very pleased with the result.
In terms of the Great Condo Hunt, your diligence in both finding prospective places for us to look at, and your knowing just what we were looking for, has had a real fairytale ending! Not only did we get a condo exactly where we wanted to find one, it has ALL the features we wanted - including a huge open deck and a fabulous view! We truly are thrilled to bits, and are well aware that had you not pounced upon this place when it first came up for sale, we likely would not own it now.
Thank you so much for all your hard work and advice. We would not hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends and family."
