We had a fantastic experience working with Monte to buy our first home. From the first meeting, he was very friendly, professional, and upfront about the process. He listened to what we wanted and showed us a number of very good alternatives to choose from (we went for a semi-detached half duplex). His experience as a former home builder shows, as he has good knowledge about the pros and cons of different layouts and whether modifications are feasible. He also has an extended network of contacts which we benefited from when, for example, we chose our mortgage broker. During the negotiation phase, he was able to get the seller to a price that we were comfortable with. Throughout the process, he was always available to answer our questions, and did not push us in any direction. To summarize, we are extremely satisfied with our experience and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for an expert realtor in the Edmonton area.
