Simon helped my wife and I purchase our first home. As first-time home buyers, we were both so pleased with the experience of working with Simon. Before our search, he took the time to really gain an understanding of who we were, what we valued and what we wanted in a home. Once we started looking, it became very clear how well Simon understood who we were as people (let alone buyers). During our viewings, Simon had an excellent attention to detail and was always clear about what he liked and disliked about the homes. It became clear that he genuinely enjoys exploring the details of houses, how renovations have been completed and how each living space is unique. It made it all the more enjoyable to look for our first home. When we found the home we wanted to purchase, Simon worked expediently to negotiate a fair deal for us. He is clearly well experienced in Calgary and his positive relationships with other agents in the area ensured that information was communicated quickly between parties. If you have any experience purchasing in the current market, you will understand how valuable that can be. After the conditional sale, Simon helped us navigate all the intricacies and legalities of purchasing a home. It can be pretty intimidating going through everything required to buy a home, but it was very comforting knowing that Simon was available to guide us along the way. Once you decide to start looking for a home, it seems like everybody and their grandmother has an agent to recommend to you, but I can honestly say that I would enthusiastically recommend Simon to anyone looking to buy a home, especially their first one. It was a genuinely wonderful experience working with him.

Thanks for the great review, Dan! It's always special working with clients that have been referred to me from past clients. You guys were awesome to work with and I appreciate your business very much! Good luck with getting settled into your first home and starting a family. Very exciting times for you guys and I was honoured to play a small part in it.

Our experience with Simon exceeded our expectations on all fronts. As first time house buyers, Simon went far beyond helping us find a home we loved, he also ensured that we understood every step of the process and provided welcome advice on financing, legal steps, and long range planning to fit our goals and needs. Simon was incredibly patient and attentive to all of our questions, and was quick to respond to any requests or queries we posed. We always felt that we were a top priority, whether for showings, questions, or follow-up phone calls. He listened to our wants and was thoughtful in his suggestions and advice. Simon clearly has a wealth of experience and knowledge that we felt fortunate to learn from. He deeply understands the market and is adaptive to it. He has a keen eye for houses and potential issues and is thorough in his assessments. We never felt rushed or pressured by Simon. Everything he does is with honesty and integrity and we had complete trust in him as a realtor. Simon is a pleasure to work with and we look forward to recommending him!

Thanks for the great review, Sarah! It was an honour having been referred to you and an absolute pleasure working with you! I really enjoy working with first time buyers. It all went so quickly, but I feel you did very well! I hope you enjoy your first home for many years. I look forward to being of service to any of your friends and family. All the best!

When I bought a house last year & Simon was a no brainer. I’d seen how fantastic he was when he worked with my parents over the past couple of decades and I knew he would do everything in his power to get me the house that was right for me.

Simon took the time to understand what I was looking for, the things that were important to me. I always felt like I was as informed as possible and that was so important to me.

As a first-time buyer, Simon went out of his way to show me everything under the sun so I could understand what fixer-upper and turn key really meant. He has a 6th sense for what’s good and what’s bad and what’s perfect for you.

With Simon, you’re in great hands!

Thanks for the great review, Iain! What a pleasure it was to work with you after having the privilege of helping your parents several times over 20+ years! Your family has been amazing clients for me! Clients who have become friends. I hope this is a trend! Thanks so much for referring your friends to me as well! Cheers!

Our experience with Simon was incredible. He was extremely patient with all my questions. Simon always made himself available to us and always went the extra mile (like staying up until midnight the night we were supposed to close the deal at 8pm, but external factors from the seller made things difficult and delayed). Simon was always punctual whether it was with in-person viewings, phone calls, emails, etc. He was truthful when pointing things out in homes that could be problematic (as young, first-time buyers, this was extremely important as we had never gone through this experience before and didn’t always know what to look for), and gave advice that never felt like he was just trying to make a sale. Again, as we had never gone through this process before, Simon added a lot of value to the process with his network of supporting services that he was able to provide/recommend to us (like the lawyer, home inspector, etc). It was obvious that Simon loves to work with first-time buyers because of the extra excitement that comes with it. Simon spent a lot of time listening to our concerns, helped us with budgeting, broke down realistic costs and unknown expenses we would likely have to deal with, and he has continued to provide support even after we took possession. It has been over a year now and he still checks in with us! We have recommended Simon to a number of friends and will continue to do so. If we ever find ourselves in the market again we will 100% be using Simon. I can’t recommend him enough.

Thanks for your kind review, Michele! You guys were a pleasure to work with. Thank you so much for your confidence in referring me to your friends! I will make sure to give them the best service possible.

I had a FABULOUS experience buying my first home! Simon was very patient with me asking a million questions. I learned a lot from him looking at many condos and townhouses in the specific area I wanted to live in. He was very knowledgeable at listing the pros and cons for each place. I would definitely use Simon again and have referred him to friends and family.

Thanks Laurie! It was totally my pleasure helping you buy your first home. I'm glad you're loving it there. Thanks so much for referring me to your friends and family!
