When Your Clients Have This To Say About Their Recent Experience, You Kind Of Want To Shout It From The Rooftops!!


Somerset Calgary Home Sold By Steven Hill - Sotheby's International Realty Canada

We were referred to Steven Hill through my mother-in-law who had nothing but positives to say about her experience with Steven and without hesitation I would wholeheartedly agree. My wife and I feel extremely lucky that we had Steven Hill's expertise and knowledge to apply to what ended up being a very intricate process that was buying a home before selling our house. The fact that everything worked out so perfectly is seriously nothing short of amazing on Steven's behalf. It's currently a pretty tough market for anyone to sell their home but especially with the type of restrictions we placed onto Steven in terms of openly admitting to a backyard structural issue, seriously if not for the very smart advice and strategy Steven came up with, i honestly don't believe any other realtor could have sold our house in the short amount of time Steven was able to do so. We always appreciated how organized and professional Steven was while consistently being extremely attentive by always making time for us, replying to our calls, emails and texts and making us feel we were his only clients. It was awe inspiring how quickly Steven would follow up with feedback from prospective buyers and turn it into a positive as we never felt discouraged or weren’t sure of the next step he was going to take. Steven was always happy to explain and provide encouragement while it was clearly obvious how well he understood the Calgary market, and we benefited from that knowledge in all aspect of our sale and purchase.

When it came time to buy a house we had very specific parameters which did not make it easy but with the help of Sotheby's daily market watch emails in which Steven set up plus his dedication to finding us a new home, we never felt it wasn't possible. The fact that Steven was able to purchase our home under a sale-of-buyers-home-condition, with the seller agreeing to well under their asking price and with a 72 hour closing window was completely brilliant and we will feel forever indebted to him. We both felt throughout this process that Steven always wanted the best for us and was there to represent our interests, we trusted him implicitly, and that was more than earned.

I can’t say enough about the expertise, attentiveness, warmth and professionalism Steven Hill brought to this process. Thanks to him, we were able to sell our home within an astounding 20 days especially when considering the market has an oversupply of inventory and an under supply of buyers. After our first deal fell through, thanks to Steven we successfully received a new offer the very next day and again for 99% of list price which made us so exceedingly grateful. During the time of our second buyers conditions, our first buyers came back after being able to secure their previously unsuccessful financing and was going to wait to see if our now current offer would fall through but Steven actually managed to convince them to write an unconditional backup offer, which turned out to be a massive benefit to us in closing our then current deal. Through having to juggle possession dates, amending contracts to ensure full security with certain specific details, Steven Hill managed to bring it all together with ease. Thanks to Steven we sold our house and now have our “forever home” in an up-and-coming neighborhood, we can’t wait to move in and start the next chapter of our lives. We are very glad we got to work with Steven and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him!

Thank you for everything,
- Steve & Amanda
