Steve worked tirelessly, was easy to get in touch with, patiently answered our questions, and always brought great data, area research and history to each of our many, many......many showings. We weren't the easiest clients, picky, not always on the same page and at times filled with ridiculous ambitions. Steve was graceful in his leveling of our expectations, keeping us on track and sometimes bringing us back down to earth. His humour and enthusiasm made it fun and for that we can't thank him enough. His most important and admirable quality was his honesty. Steve spared us the shmaltsy, greasy, BS junk that can be painful to endure. Instead he always shot straight with us and on our behalf, was never pushy and consistently demonstrated that he wanted to get us into the perfect home. In the end that is exactly what happened and we are thrilled and extremely grateful. Steve delivered in every way. Awesome Realtor and an even better guy.
We are a Military family posted from Ottawa to Calgary. Our timelines to find a suitable residence was short. Over the course of 2.5 days, we searched 40+ homes. Steve arranged showings by area of the houses we were initially interested in. He arranged a few other showing based on our criteria and tastes, as well as tracked new listings as they came in. Throughout, he always maintained in a calm/professional manner even during some challenging moments... In the end, we found an excellent home given our short timelines and modest budget. I would recommend Steve for his excellent knowledge of the Calgary Real Estate scene and overall experience and professional demeanor.
He is knowledgeable, friendly and honest. He took the time to truly explain the real estate process, so that I could make my own well- informed decisions about market value, timing and price. I never felt rushed and he gave me accurate advice on how to manage negotiations for a quick, hassle free sale. I would definitely use Steve again and recommend him to anyone looking to buy or sell.
I had to find the Real Estate Agent who would do for me what I could not do for myself. STEVE STRACHAN showed up and within less than 48 hours the property was sold. In the unlikely event that the sale didn't go through, Steve continued keeping up the momentum of seeking a successful buyer and as a result there were a number of other potentially eager buyers in the wings. At our first meeting Steve explained the entire process to me. He immediately put all of his ducks in a row by researching the property (exact square footage, etc) arranged for staging, Open Houses, advertising and excited the City's many other real estate agents to show the property to their own clients. Whether we are buying or selling, the process is scary. Steve is an open and transparent Real Estate Agent. He was always available to talk out my concerns with me and used his expertise of the real estate world, his wisdom and wit to make my experience a pleasant and successful one.
Steve really helped me locate and negotiate an awesome little rental property that has cash flowed from the start. Great working with you Steve, I mean Awesome to work with! You can count on me calling you again when I'm getting ready to buy my next one!
Steve is knowledgeable, professional and reliable. He was very patient and diligent while helping me search for the perfect condo. I appreciated his honesty and knowledge throughout my search and I would recommend Steve to anyone looking to purchase a home in Calgary!
Thank you Steve for all your help!
He engages his clients so that everyone is on board and will develop strategies that will sell your home for the price you want. He takes an active part in marketing your property by advertising, staging your property, and having many open houses. He will not stop until your property is sold. We hired Steve in the time of Real Estate uncertainty in Calgary. He was able to adapt to the changes in the market and we were able to sell our house for the amount we wanted. Steve is friendly, approachable, and has his client’s need at the forefront. I would recommend Steve if you want to sell your house for top dollar.
His knowledge and experience proved invaluable to us in finding our place and we learned a lot along the way. Steve has an excellent sense of what the value is vs. the asking price of a home and he gladly shared this knowledge with us so that we, as buyers, could make much more informed choices. He genuinely cared about us finding the right home and at his suggestion we started looking at houses instead of condos, which is how we found our beautiful new home. I highly recommend Steve's services, he is a consummate professional and a credit to his profession.
Working with Steve made things easy because he educates you along the way so that you make your own informed decisions. When it comes to purchasing property, you're in good hands with Steve Strachan. It's from the heart, Steve!
He offered alternatives for consideration and educated me about the entire purchasing process. He also connected me with several other quality professionals that were required to complete the process. In my opinion, you can't go wrong enlisting Steve to assist you with all of your Real Estate matters.
When my husband and I were not at our best, Steve provided a levity and calm to the situation. We also knew that Steve would take care of all aspects of our transactions and trusted him implicitly with negotiating on our behalf. We knew he had our best interests at heart. In a field where many have a bad reputation, it is rare to find one as honest and good-hearted as Steve.
We were very pleased with the professionalism shown us during the entire process of selling our home. Steve made the difficult task of listing and selling our house a pleasant experience from beginning to end. We were very impressed with the professional way the listing was executed through Social media, Postcards in the community and overall MLS presentation. Steve demonstrated a commitment and caring in all aspects of our sale that set him apart from all others. All questions were answered completely and thoroughly by Steve. Closing was explained well and his support beyond the sale was top notch. Thanks Steve for a very pleasant and professional home selling experience. We would recommend Steve to all of our family and friends.
