Justin Pokrant is an award-winning REALTOR® and Top Rated Agent with Century 21 Bachman & Associates in Winnipeg, Manitoba. He works with both buyers and sellers, helping them accomplish their real estate goals with an energetic, friendly, passionate, and no-pressure approach to real estate. His love and interest in real estate started at a very early age as he watched his father build numerous houses and cottages as he grew up. Justin's involvement with real estate really took off in his college years when he was able to purchase and renovate his first condo with the skills he picked up from watching and participating in decades of construction. Years later, and a number of other properties bought, renovated and sold under his belt, he has developed a very strong understanding of house construction, remodelling, and investing that has proved to be an incredibly valuable tool for his clients. Justin's knowledge base and personal experiences help both buyers and sellers feel comfortable and confident during one of the biggest financial decisions that they will make in their lives.
This one bedroom condo unit in St. Boniface was 100% vacant when the owner was ready to sell. Given its small size, I knew it would benefit greatly from virtual staging to give buyers an idea of how how it could function as a work from home space with a desk in the primary bedroom […]Read More

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!

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.

Justin came highly recommended and I'm glad we connected with him. I was so happy not to feel pressured and really felt like Justin had our interests in mind throughout the process. His experience with renovations helped point out pitfalls in some houses we saw and he helped make sure we explored all of our options without getting his opinions clouding ours. When it came time to sell, his experience with photography really shows and I'll keep those photos as some of the best I have of our old place! He was able to negotiate a better deal than we expected, too. Being able to text with him made the whole process easy and made it feel less intimidating. We got along so well that I would consider Justin a friend and would definitely recommend him.
