What our clients are saying...
1st Time buyers
|We would like to express our sincere appreciation for your help in the purchase of our first home. There are three things in particular that we appreciate: advice, support and friendship! As recent newcomers in Canada, and without any knowledge about the process to buy a house, you really did a great job helping us to overcome the situation; you stay right on top of every detail and keep things working smoothly! You are number one in our recommendation list for those like us that want to start a new life in Calgary and want to have their dream home! You truly take customer service to the highest level. Your service has been both unique and special. Should we ever have the opportunity to buy or sell another house, we will turn to you for assistance! Thanks a lot! |

The VIP Program Really Works!
|"As first time home buyers, we were rather naïve to the entire process and all the steps that we needed to take to make this dream a reality. We were so thankful to have Craig there as a guide to aid us in navigating our way, answering all our questions, explaining things in terms we could understand, and simplifying what could have been a very complicated and confusing process. As we shared with him our desires for our home, he was able to take our thoughts and dreams and narrow the focus by sending us the profiles of houses that fit our criteria. When we began to view places, we felt safe and taken care of as he gently steered us away from the ones that weren’t the right fit, being honest and up front with us, while still allowing us to make the final decision. Craig gave of his time and effort to make sure we had all the opportunities we needed to view potential homes, and when we were ready to go ahead with an offer, he was there to guide us through the process of all the paperwork. He also connected us with the professionals we needed to arrange our mortgage and the lawyer to finalize the agreement. We would’ve been lost as to where to go, but with the excellent references we were given, we had a great team working with us to bring it all together. Overall, we felt that he had our best interests at heart and that we could trust him with this milestone event in our lives."|

For Sale By Owner...
|“After little traffic from our “For Sale By Owner” strategy, Craig offered us a unique model and the support to sell our home in a very short amount of time. Although we developed a great website ourselves, featuring house specifics, floor plans and pictures, we needed greater exposure and a professional to help us manage the sale. Craig knew exactly how to support us and charged a very reasonable price. He even lined us up with a great mortgage broker too. I would definitely call on Craig for any future sales and recommend him to friends and family as well. In fact, he’s often the topic of conversation when someone asks us how our house sale went. We really appreciate working with Craig and his team. |

'...ended up getting exaclty what we needed"
|"We had a unique home with a specialized basement development and we knew that selling our house could be difficult. Craig encouraged us that we just needed to find the right buyer. We ended up getting exactly what we needed from the sale of our home and sold within the time frame we needed. Craig was great all through the process not only with the paperwork and details but also consistently communicating with us where he was at in the process. We would hot hesitate to use Craig again and I would recommend him to anyone who wants a positive experience selling your home."|

Our listing EXPIRED so we called Craig...
|"We're recommending Craig Hill to anyone who wants to purchase or sell real estate. Our house was listed on the market for three months without results so we contacted Craig. He immediately went to work and identified the correct selling strategy. The house was sold in three weeks at a very favorable price. The transaction was also a pleasant one thanks to Craig's professionalism, dedication and the bottom line that he simply cares about his client. To anyone looking for a good realtor, just call Craig Hill, he's as good as a realtor gets."|

Sold our home for beyond our expectations...
|"When we decided to sell our house last summer we were a little nervous about the process, it being our first selling experience. Craig put to rest all of our anxiety immediately by clearly explaining to us the ins and outs of the real estate world. He answered all of our questions honestly and gave us great advice on the best course of action for our situation. His patience and availablity made us extremely comfortable in the selling process especially since it only lasted 5 days once our house was put on the market. Not only was Craig able to sell our house quickly, but also found us a price meeting our expectations and beyond, achieving an even higher profit than what we could have recieved selling independantly. We highly recommend Craig Hill, and would not hesitate to use him again as our Realtor." Bonus: "We also were impressed with his cars and sense of humor." |

Our worst nightmare...
|As we were planning to sell our first home, we both agreed that our worst nightmare would be to awaken the morning after selling it with a sick feeling in our stomachs, knowing that we had not received fair market value. I still recall how my anxiety was quelled the first time Craig Hill stepped in the front door, looked around, and told us that we will do very well on the market. He coached us through a variety of things prior to listing the home—how to enhance ‘curb-appeal’, etc.—, took pictures for the listing advertisement that would be striking to prospective buyers, and, most importantly, helped us clearly define a listing price that would be quite competitive without being detrimentally ambitious. Moreover, in the negotiating process, Craig was care-ful, competent, and strategic. Well, it worked: The house sold in 5 days, and we got precisely the price we had been hoping for—we were both thrilled! Needless to say, we highly recommend Craig Hill, who continues to be our realtor of choice. |

Sold quickly tfor a great price!
|Working with Craig through the sale and purchase of our home has been a blessing. He sold our house very quickly for a great price and we were working on a very tight time line between the sale and purchase of our new house. Craig spent a lot of time with us explaining the process, answering questions, and looking at houses to ensure that we were able to get the house we wanted for the price and a possesion date we needed. Knowing that your realtor cares, makes the whole process go smoothly! Thanks Craig. |

It was a pleasure
|With Calgary’s marketplace in high gear, I wanted to secure a property first and then place mine on the market. Even before we set out to view properties, Craig discussed with us those features of a new home that we deemed as requirements, those on the ‘wish-list’ as well as those that ‘would never do’. Saving us many hours, Craig was able to pre-assess some of the properties and exclude many for just these reasons. Craig communicated effectively with me and my children throughout the process taking time to answer each and every question along the way. Having several months before putting my house on the market, Craig was able to coach me as to what I could do (at times without any cost) to enhance the visual aspect of my home when it came time to place it on the market. This along with his research of the sales in my area assisted me in receiving top dollars from my investment. Thanks for all your hard work Craig - it was a pleasure to work with you and your team. |
Craig made the difference
|"Over the years we have been subject to dealing with a variety of real estate "professionals" in buying and selling homes in Toronto, Sarnia and Calgary. We must admit that we expected no more than the usual "hype" of a salesmen interested mainly in the collection of his commission. To optimize the potential value we had determined to approach the sale of our home by listening carefully to what the realtors had to offer that was different, in a market that should result in a relatively quick sale. What a pleasant surprise to deal with someone that came in with a plan that reflected more than the usual MLS listing and counting on the numbers and efforts of a collection of other salesmen. Craig addressed our concerns by presenting a marketing plan that provided prospective Buyers with a take-a-way brochure, wherein people would remember what our home looked like on the inside and outside, along with the required details. This accompanied a sales strategy that could maximize the value to the Seller. We were truly impressed and extremely pleased that we selected Craig from the group of contenders in what can be considered one of life's most important decisions. Craig made solid promises and delivered on every one, and we would be hard pressed to be convinced the result was only because of the "hot market". Craig made the difference in our exceeding our goals." |

Helped purchase a fsbo home FREE of charge
|“At a time when my wife & I needed a quick sale, Craig assessed the market value of our home with incredible precision. In a slow & saturated market, we were able to sell in 3 days!!! His negotiating skills enabled us to get very close to our asking price & his subsequent work with helping us to purchase a fsbo home (free of charge) was greatly appreciated. We highly recommend him!” |

"We could not have asked for a more tailored experience...
|We have now been in our house for a month, and it is quickly transforming into a comfortable, happy home. As things come together, we continue to realize how fortunate we were to have found and worked with you. As we had only recently relocated to Calgary on very short notice, we really relied on your knowledge to explain the local demographics, benefits and general information related to the many different communities of Calgary. We could not have asked for a more tailored experience that suited our own inexperience in the local market. You were honest, friendly, professional and incredibly helpful. You were very informative and knowledgeable in the home buying process here in Calgary and also in your opinions of the places we were viewing; all the while letting us form our own decisions. I absolutely want to mention the how valuable your website proved to be. Certainly the info it contains, backed by the power of the daily emails of new listings tailored to fit our interest, needs and budget played a more than significant role in the successful purchase of our Tuscany home. When we found our home, I was very impressed and more than confident to have you submitting our offer. There was no doubt in my mind that you were a true professional showing the sellers and their agent full respect while never loosing sight of our best interests. You weren't just looking to just “complete the sale”, instead you truly cared for us and helped us find the place that was right for us. It is always our pleasure to recommend you with full confidence and conviction to friends and family we know who are looking to list or purchase real-estate. Craig in today’s competitive and fast paced market, you deliver that rare blend of excellent morals, fantastic sense of humour, professional demeanour, backed by a solid working knowledge of your industry. Craig you can be sure we'll be calling you again when we are looking for our next investment property! Please never hesitate to pass on my name and contact information to any potential clients that you may have that would be interested in working with you. Thank you so much for your commitment, strong work ethic and kindness. You know where we are now, so please know that you and your family are always welcome, and have an open invitation to drop by any time. Best Regards |
