I really appreciated all you did to help me out as I didn't know where to turn. It is what makes you a real estate agent I will use again in the future! - Judi P
It was with some trepidation that we set out to find a realtor to list our home when we decided to move to Victoria. A prior attempt to sell in 2008 ended in an expired listing and a great deal of wasted time and energy to no avail. There are just so many realtors in Calgary, and it seemed impossible to differentiate between them. All of them had slick marketing materials, but who would really deliver the results we wanted? Fortunately, I spoke to our neighbor, who sold with Kurtis and Dixie Bain of HomeLife Central and was very pleased with her outcome.
From the outset, we received exactly what we were hoping to from our agent. An honest and professional appraisal at a realistic price given conditions in our neighborhood. Sound advice on what to fix and what to leave, and recommendations of excellent contractors to do the minor remedial work required to make our home that much more desirable. And prompt replies to all our questions and concerns, large or small. In the end, the hard work they put in at the outset speaks for itself. We sold at a price we were happy with, four days after we listed. As we have two cats and a baby, we were delighted with the results. The service, however, continued beyond the sale. Dixie & Kurtis recommended an excellent master electrician to rectify an electrical deficiency turned up during the home inspection. When the buyers wanted to change the possession date, Dixie & Kurtis were extremely efficient in getting us the necessary paperwork. All in all, we are extremely satisfied with the level of service and integrity delivered by Kurtis, Dixie, and HomeLife Realty, and would recommend them without reservation. - Marnie L
When my husband and I called Dixie up, we weren't even sure we were ready to sell our house in order to move to our dream inner-city neighborhood. We explained to Dixie that we just wanted to take a look around, to see if there was anything in our price range that would make the move worth it for us. She was willing to take us around to look at places, with no expectations and absolutely no pressure. We've gone through many real estate purchases in the past, and were very impressed with Dixie's knowledge and honesty, always with a friendly and patient attitude. She made us feel comfortable immediately and was always extremely professional and accommodating of our schedules. When we finally decided to go for it, we met Kurtis, who joined in the effort to make things happen. The apple does not fall from the tree. Kurtis, too, is a fabulous real estate agent with a lot of experience, and we always felt he had our best interest in mind. He even came to our rescue late one night when we foolishly locked ourselves out of our house. Both Kurtis and Dixie made the experience of selling and buying our house, despite the usual stressors, enjoyable. They have great, down-to-earth personalities and I would highly recommend them to anyone who's looking to buy or sell a house in Calgary. Thanks Dixie and Kurtis! - Trina M
