Edmonton Real Estate Agent Recommendation

June 2015

Dennis did exactly what I asked and he was an assertive Realtor.  With the market slowed down he worked hard to sell my house in Edmonton and he was able to do it within a month.  I live in New York and we had strong communication throughout the entire process.  We were in contact almost everyday.  I never once felt that we were 2500 miles apart.  Dennis did a great job selling my house.  I felt he had made me feel I was his first priority and I would definitely recommend him to anyone.

Customer Review for Top City Real Estate Agents

Edmonton Real Estate Agent

22 February 2013

Mike from Top City Real Estate referred Dennis to us to use as our realtor during our relocation from Brisbane, Australia to Edmonton, Alberta.  We would not hesitate to utilise his services and referrals again in the future.  Below is what his referral achieved for us.

Far beyond the call of duty……

If you are looking for a realestate agent who goes far beyond the call of duty then Dennis is the right person for you!

We relocated to Edmonton, Alberta from Brisbane, Australia in January 2013.  While still in Australia my husband made contact with Dennis and he made us feel very comfortable that he was the right person for the job.  We emailed back and forth with Dennis for a couple of months in relation to what we were looking for in a house, the location, needs and wants.  Dennis began emailing through properties for us to look at via the web which fit our criteria.

We made arrangements to fly to Edmonton for 5 days early December of 2012 in order to give us the time to purchase a home.  Dennis cleared his schedule in order to give us the full attention we required to find us the right home.  He made appointments ahead of time for all the listings that we wanted to view.  Dennis picked us up each morning at our hotel and spent exhausting hours with us trying to find us the right fit.  He never rushed us and told us to take our time as this was a major decision and the house had to be right for us. 

While going through each home Dennis discreetly jotted down notes of the commentary being exchanged between my husband and myself.  By the end of the 2nd day of looking at homes within our desired location and not finding the one that we would be happy with for long term Dennis asked us if we would be open to viewing in another area.  We were really set on our desired location however thought to ourselves what harm could be done.  We agreed to another location and trusted Dennis on his suggesting of one.  The next day again Dennis picked us up and took us to view three properties in the new location.  On the drive to the first viewing Dennis went through our needs and wants check list and described the new area to us, even going into such detail as driving us around to see the surroundings and what amenities were nearby.
The last house of the day we almost knew instantly that it was the one for us.  We put in an offer and Dennis negotiated to stay within our budget.  Dennis closed the deal for us and we took possession within 3 weeks.
We are extremely happy with the house and location and can’t thank Dennis enough for having us look outside the box and allow him to find us the right house in a fabulous location!

I could go on and on about everything Dennis did for us as the above is really just an overview.  We would not hesitate to recommend Dennis in the future and will definitely contact Dennis if we ever decide to sell.

Thank you TCR!

To let you know that we could not have been happier than working with the real estate agent TCR recommended. We required a focused and experienced agent to help us sell an Estate home in a difficult market.

From the time I stepped off the ferry in Sept. 2012 to meet with Elke, we became not only client and agent, but friends as well. Elke understood that we needed closure from the sale, and quickly got to work with suggestions. For example; staging the master bedroom in a little bit more modern way. She helped tremendously by buying the necessary things to make that happen.

Elke made sure that we were informed about the house activity and the real estate market by way of monthly reports that were easy to understand. My sister and I live in Toronto and Burnaby respectively, and found these reports and updates to be vital in keeping up with the pricing of a changing market. We had to do our homework too and were grateful for staying involved in every step of the selling process.

We were happy to close our sale yesterday, without any hitches. There were small details that were overlooked by the agent for the buyer, and which Elke spotted and corrected before giving the documents for us to sign. Her attention to detail is superb.

Elke is to be commended for going beyond the call of duty in some instances and we always felt we were in very capable hands. Thank you once again for recommending her.

All the best,
Wendy Taylor

To whom it may concern:

We’d like to thank Top City Real Estate Agents for recommending realtor to us. Moving to a new, unfamiliar city far away from our existing home was a daunting task, especially when neither my husband nor I knew the city areas very well. We also didn’t know what to expect when we signed on to find a realtor through Top City Estate Agents’s service, but the morning after we put in a request for a realtor reference, we got a phone call from our realtor, Mike. We talked on the phone with Mike again for an hour that evening, when both my husband and I were present, and got a good feel for both how Mike worked as a realtor, and also what we were looking for in a new home.

Mike took into account our preference for suitable schools and work commutes, as well as family-friendly neighborhoods and activities, and gave us plenty of options of houses to suit us, which we were able to short-list at home before we travelled down to Calgary. Given our very short time-frame to be in town to do our house-hunting, Mike set up two and a half days of houses for us to look at, by the end of which we had a very good idea of what was on the market, and which houses we liked.

In the end, Mike helped us negotiate a very fair price on our chosen home (from long-distance), and coordinated all of the details to satisfy the conditions of the sale, including being present for the home inspection when we ourselves couldn’t be in town to do it. Mike patiently helped us navigate the whole house purchasing process with a minimum of fuss.

So once again, thank you Top City Real Estate Agents for recommending realtor Mike de Jonge to us; he was an excellent choice to help us find our new home!

Yours truly,  

Sheila and Jason Friesen

Calgary Real Estate Agent

"Being a first time home seller we didn't know where to start nor did we have any realtor recommendations. We used the Top City Realtors website, filled out the form and was contacted that evening by Mike deJonge, a top Calgary REALTOR®.

After meeting Mike for the first time we knew we were matched with a top notch professional REALTOR® and had high confidence that he was the right choice to help us sell our condo and buy a house. Working with Mike was an enjoyable learning experience where his knowledge and years of experience was evident and made us very comfortable in making such life changing decisions. We were excited to have sold our condo but the $500 bonus for using the Top City Realtors service was icing on top of the cake. We couldn't have asked for a more hard working, trustworthy, friendly REALTOR® than Mike and will recommend him immediately to anyone who is looking for a stress free realty experience."

Nanaimo Real Estate Agent

"We were looking for a good REALTOR® when we decided to sell our home this past Spring on Vancouver Island. We had had bad experiences with real estate agents before so we wanted to be careful with selecting one this time. We had Top City Real Estate recommend 2 REALTORS® for us. We met with both REALTORS® and knew instantly that we were dealing with professionals and that either choice would do an excellent job for us. After making our difficult choice we hired Derrick and he got right to work for us. Our home sold quickly (in a tough market), we got the price we were looking for and were very happy with the service we received from Top City Real Estate and our real estate agent. After our sale was finalized we quickly received our$200.00 gift certificate which we choose. Thanks TCR! We will recommend you."
