I Have a Confession to Make


Blogging has not been my strength and so this is officially a work in progress.  I have some big plans for the blogging page in the foreseeable future so I ask for your patience as I venture into this side.

(This just came to me from great people who had another great client purchasing experience)............


Hi Steven, I wanted to reach out to let you know that we are settling in very well into our new home and are so very happy. It was important to Kent and I to send you a follow-up note to say thank you for all your support through this process.


As you know, up until now we have been in a long distance relationship and decided to purchase a home together last summer. We were fereffed to you through a program that is offered through our organization; upon meeting you we both felt very at ease and comfortable with you and appreciated how attentive you were to finding out what we needed. I appreciate how you coordinated showings for us based on me being in Calgary - we had some whirlwind afternoons/evenings. You also were able to provide us with a realistic perspective of what we could find in the marketplace and how it is rapidly evolving; you professionally and graciously pointed out considerations for us to be aware of in every property we looked at - yes we did get a bit over excited about a couple properties that never would have worked for us - thanks for grounding us LOL!! When we found a place that we were excited to put an offer in, your support and advice enabled us to move forward in confidence. We were disappointed and disheartened when the deal fell through, as we really thought we had found our home, but with your encouragement we got back on the "house searching horse". When you asked us about if we had considered building a home, which we neither thought we could afford or find a builder to meet our time lines, you were quick to point out a new community in West Springs that was in our price range.


I'm happy to say that we are so grateful that our original offer fell through, as we are not in our brand new home and it's more that we could have ever expected - it is truly "Home".


Please accept our sincere appreciation for your support in this process and assisting us in getting to this place. We both appreciated and enjoyed working with you and look forward to continuing our relationship and friendship for many years to come.


All the best, and look forward to having you over soon!


Cheers, Kent & Kiran

Rentals Now Avaliable on MLS

Calgary MLS Search Provided By Steven Hill of Sotheby's International Realty Canada

No one knows Calgary market conditions better than a Calgary real estate professional. Your Calgary real estate professional has the specialized expertise that is necessary to realize a successful Calgary real estate transaction. This is the kind of transferable knowledge and value that you can expect when using rentals on the MLS System.

With this new service, you are able to use the trusted and professional services of your Realtor to help you find a Calgary property to rent using the MLS System, or for Calgary property owners, to leverage the system to find a Calgary tenant for your Calgary rental property. Calgary REALTORS have a long history of serving buyers and sellers. This same high quality service delivery is now available to the renting public through rentals on the MLS System.

It's no secret that Calgary is facing a limited rental market. It's more challenging and competitive than ever before to find the right Calgary Home property, in the right Calgary location, for the right price. How helpful would it be to have a Calgary market expert on your side? Someone who can share their Calgary industry knowledge to find you the right Calgary property?

The same questions are equally applicable for Calgary property owners who are looking to find the right tenant. Unlike other self-administered rental services, which often require a significant effort by the property owner to list, your Calgary REALTOR does this for you when using rentals on the MLS System. This includes advertising and promoting the Calgary rental listing, presenting the tenant aplication to rent, showing rental properties, and supplying the tenancy agreement and walk through documentation.

Participating Calgary REALTORS understand the relevant rules and regulations related to rentals on the MLS System and most importantly, they are your resource to help you list or find a property.
