We came from abroad to scout for a house in the Calgary area with hardly any knowledge of the area and none of the housing market. Simon Strydhorst was strongly recommended to us by friends who had worked with him before and who held him in the highest regards. They were 100% right. Within an hour of contacting Simon by email we received his response. Five days later our scouting trip had resulted in a signed purchase contract with terms and conditions negotiated beyond our wildest expectations. We now live in the house since September 2020 and every day call ourselves fortunate that we got it. And all thanks to Simon’s professionalism. When we first met, Simon instantly established trust, which turned the stress of looking for a house in fact into a fun project. He quickly understood our drivers and was able to identify options with us that could be potential fits. While sensitive to our wishes and needs, he did not shy away from warning against bad ideas. This, and his tough but fair negotiation skills and his research into the background of properties we visited saved us a lot of money in the end and overdelivered on our expectations. Moreover, he had made sure we had explored the full range of options fitting our interests, so we knew that we had not overlooked some attractive alternative. Throughout the process, Simon went the extra mile as a standard, providing help wherever we needed (and as foreigners we needed it a lot!), like in finding a bank, coordinating the technical home inspection, and taking care of the pre-possession inspection we could not do ourselves. And to make us feel welcome in the home from day one, he added the personal touch of a welcoming basket – just one of those personal gestures that make him stand out in our eyes. In summary, Simon is extremely knowledgeable, very personable, not pushy, sensitive to a client’s needs and constraints, completely reliable, and an expert negotiator. We would not even think about going with someone else a next time. Simon, many thanks!

Thanks Bastian for your kind review. I really enjoyed working with you and Mieke and glad that you did too! Being new to Canada, please let me know if you ever need any further contacts. I'm happy to help out in any way I can.

This was the third time we worked with Simon. With his expert guidance through this process, and his careful attention to setting the correct price and professional photos of our home, we had the only home that sold in our neighborhood during a particularly difficult time in the market.

Thank you so much for the kind review, Debbie! I was honoured to be able to work with you an Peter again! You and Peter have always been such a pleasure to work with!! Calgary's loss was Truro's gain!
Thank you so much for the kindness you've shown to Justine on her recent move to Halifax! When we eventually are able to travel and see her we'd love to see you guys too! All the best for 2021!

Simon was fantastic for explaining the real estate process to a first time buyer. I really valued that he would give me his honest opinion on properties and he had great insights on the properties that I wouldn't have thought of. He made himself very available to work around my schedule. He was a great negotiator when it came time to make an offer and I was very impressed with the final price we got. I would absolutely recommend Simon to any friends or family looking to buy a home.

Thanks so much for the review, Jon! I enjoyed working with you and appreciate your business! Wishing you a Merry Christmas!

Simon is amazing. He helped us find our first home and walked us through the experience step by step. He was always there to answer any questions we had. Our parents had used him for 2 of their home purchases and really recommended Simon and we’re so glad we chose him.

Thanks so much Hannah! It was awesome working with you guys! Second generation clients are always special!
