Co-Managing Partner of The Agency Vancouver, Hugh Cooper works alongside partner Kit Matkaluk as the Kit & Coop team, distinguished among the best of the best in the business. Together, they’ve ranked among the Top 10% of agents in the region for five consecutive years and as the Number One agents in Lower Lonsdale since 2016, based on sales volume and properties sold.
Kit & Coop have closed a combined $350 million in real estate, utilizing their nuanced local knowledge and market expertise to secure the best possible outcomes for their clients. An agent for over ten years, Coop was drawn to the business by his love of working with people and making a difference in their lives and financial wellbeing. “When you love what you do, it doesn’t feel like work,” Coop says, adding that the time and effort that goes into each transaction is worth every moment.
As for the business, Coop loves that no two days are ever the same, and each offers the chance to make something truly special happen for his clients. With a knack for marketing and a head for numbers, Coop stays current on market trends, remaining a hands-on advisor for his clients well after the sale is made. Born and raised in Vancouver, Coop’s local expertise allows him to match people with their ideal neighbourhood and communicate the lifestyle of each property, so buyers can envision their lives in the homes he represents.
After growing up in West Vancouver, Coop studied Business + Economics at Western in Ontario. He worked as a Grade One teacher, in retail sales and financial planning, honing his ability to relate to people from all walks of life—experience that drives his successful career in real estate. One of seven children in a large, blended family, Coop spends his time away from work with his growing family, including his wife (expecting their new little one soon), toddler and 8-year-old lab-collie. He loves playing hockey, golf, squash, hiking with the family and hitting the ski slopes of B.C.
