I've been involved with the Calgary Real Estate market my entire life. My Father was always dealing with the investment aspect, owning many homes and eventually graduating to apartment buildings. When I became a licensed REALTOR® over 20 years ago it felt like a natural fit. I've gone on to sell hundreds of properties from starter condos to luxury homes with many repeat satisfied clients.
Whether I'm involved with a $225,000 condo listing or a
high-end home in an exclusive neighbourhood; I put in the same amount of energy and passion to generate a quick sale for the highest return.
EVA & MICHAEL
" We'd been considering listing our home for some time so when we received Michael's flyer in our mailbox, we decided to give him a call. After our initial meeting with him, it was quite evident that he had done his homework - he was very knowledgeable on all the comparable listings in our area and able to help us come up with a list price that we were comfortable with but that remained competitive. Michael recommended a staging company and with his help, we quickly had the house ready for showings. After being listed for merely three days, the house was conditionally sold; less than a week later, the sale was official. When we found our new home, Michael negotiated $45,000 off the asking price! We had a few unanswered questions with respect to the new property and Michael went beyond the call of duty and looked into getting us some answers for many of these outstanding details - so very helpful. Michael is very detail-oriented and ensured that all of our bases were covered with both the sale of our house and the purchase of our new home. We'd recommend Michael's services in a heartbeat. "

The Fatal Pricing Mistake
Price is the MOST important factor to consider when selling. So when pricing a home, should you list competitively, or should you speculate a bit and see if you will catch the “big fish”?
