While speaking with Asian Journal, Rahul said, “Now more people from Burnaby and Vancouver are selling their old homes to buy new homes here in Whalley. The Surrey downtown core has transformed in last couple of years, it more vibrant, and lot of event activity has added to its image as good neighborhood to live and work. Mayor Watts’s decision to build City Hall here has given a news lease of life to the real estate market here.”
The home that Rahul and Aman Gill sold was bought by a Asian woman of Chinese origin, she decided to buy the house because it was near to the Sky train, SFU, Library and Central City Mall.
