Companies don’t hire people without first checking their references. You shouldn’t work with someone without checking their references either. This is what some of our clients have said about working recently with us .

” Dear Kathy & David, Thank you for the assistance in finding us our “Dream Home”! To whom it may concern, I’ve known Kathy and David for over two years. I met Kathy when she was on the CIR Ad Committee and was immediately impressed with her ability to listen to my future family needs, even when I wasn’t ready to pull the trigger on a home. This was my 7th property I’ve purchased, and have tried using some of the “Big Names” in the Calgary real estate market, here’s what I’ve found in regards when working with Kathy and David. Their intense listening skills, knowledge in all areas of the purchasing process, and thorough research approach in finding the true value of the property was heads and tails better than ANYONE I’ve dealt with. When it came time to put an offer in, Kathy had the ability to read the seller and negotiate a savings of literally tens of thousands of dollars! To sum it up, I felt Kathy and David Anderson truly cared about what was best for my family. In my opinion, if you choose anyone but the two of them in the Calgary market place….you are making the wrong decision. ”

To Kathy and David,

“Thank you so much for all your help in helping us find the perfect condo.  After an exhaustive list of properties to see and with our long list of criteria, the two of you helped us through every step of the way to complete the purchase of our first home in Calgary.

With both of us being new to Calgary, you provided so much helpful information to help guide us to our decision.  All our questions were answered thoroughly and the replies to our emails and phone calls were always prompt. The both of you were so patient in explaining all the procedures involved in the process, and you took the time and effort to really get to know us.

Overall, the level of care and service we received from you was far beyond our expectation.  We look forward to working with you again in the future, and will continue to refer the both of you to all our friends and family who should benefit from your assistance.”
Thank you,  Arthur & Marika

“Our experience with CIR Realty was outstanding thanks to David and Kathy Anderson.  They were nothing short of amazing.  Both David and Kathy went the extra mile by providing great advice, support, constructive feedback, and alternative suggestions that we wouldn’t have thought of on our own.   They are genuine, trust worthy, accommodating, experienced, and most of all – always looking out for your best interest.  This was extremely helpful to us as this was the purchase of our first home!

With both of us working as Sales Managers in the Hospitality / Hotel Industry, we have a very high expectation of  what “good service” is.  Not only are they knowledgeable; they truly know how to provide and deliver amazing service.  Thank you so much David and Kathy!  Your extra efforts did not go unnoticed or unappreciated!  We look forward to working with you again in the future. Kind regards,”

Hi Kathy and David

” We just wanted to thank you for all the help you gave us in finding our new home. You have helped us take one step closer to the life we dream of having together. We appreciate everything you have done for us, including the wonderful gift basket. We will happily refer you to everyone we know because of your professionalism and excellent service,  thanks again, ”
-Jennifer Wasilik & Toby Farrell.

 

“My wife and I were very pleased with professionalism, friendliness and assistance of both David & Kathy.  Inexperienced as we both were with the aspects of purchasing a home, their guidance was excellent.  We bought our home direct from a builder and their knowledge and assistance in all the little details we had to deal with was well beyond the call of duty and not what you see in all realtors.

The best compliment I can give them is where many realtors in this business will leave the picture after the possession date is achieved, David & Kathy continued to remain available to our needs and requests.  My greatest thank you to both of them for assisting my wife and I in finding our dream home.”
-Jason & Genevieve

“When we decided to sell our house and buy a new one, we were nervous if we were making the right decision. Thank god we found Kathy. Kathy showed professionalism and care as she walked us through the process of buying a new home for our family and selling our current home. Kathy researched homes in the area we wanted to move to and listened to our wants and needs to find us the perfect new home. She also sold our current house in less than 2 days! I have recommended Kathy numerous times to friends and family who are looking for more than “just a realtor”. If you are looking for someone who cares about finding you the perfect home, shows tireless work ethic and sincere professionalism then Kathy Anderson is the perfect realtor for you.”
-Simon and Lauren Whitfield

“Kathy & David : My wife and I would like to Thank you both for your hard work and guidance with the sale of my late fathers home.In a tough market and the economic downturn we “as well as our families” were amazed that the house sold in less then 45 days. This quick sale in a stale market at a fair price was due to your guidance to us with staging and minor upgrades to show the home better and the dramatic way you presented the home to other realtors and the public. Again thank you both very much, if ever we know of a friend selling or buying a home you can be assured of our recommendation. ”
-Jerry and Kathie Thompson

“When we decided to sell our Calgary home, we intended to list the property ourselves. After a discussion with Kathy, we decided to list the property with her. As it turned out, we were very pleased with her professionalism, friendliness, advice and knowledge of similar homes for sale in the immediate area. She provided the contacts and the services, such as pre-screening of prospective buyers and, at no time were we advised to change the selling price of the house to gain a quick sale. Her knowledge of potential buyers assured us that the people viewing the property were not just off the street and “casing the place”. She did her homework. We would highly recommend Kathy to anyone.”
-Tom and Beth McNeilly

“My husband and I have been dealing with Kathy now for a couple of years. Kathy came highly recommended to us by a friend when we were looking to buy an older house to renovate and sell. There were 2 other people involved in this deal so Kathy had her hands full dealing with 4 of us and our individual needs. My first impression in dealing with Kathy was that she could do business in a very friendly, relaxed way while remaining very professional. I am in a business where I deal with clients on a daily basis and I know how important it is to be professional without compromising the personal touch that comes with relating to people. This is not something that comes natural to a lot of people, and Kathy has mastered it. Kathy is knowledgeable in the real estate world and goes out of her way to LISTEN and tries her best to find you the property you are searching for. “Listening” is a quality that is very important when dealing with clients and again, Kathy has mastered it. In the end, we decided not to buy a property to renovate, but to purchase an older home in a mature area of the city. With the current market situation in Calgary, you have to act fast. Kathy did just that and got us the house we wanted. We never looked back! We trust Kathy; she is honest, prompt and truly realizes what service is. I would recommend Kathy to any one of my friends or family.”
-Paula Wallace

“Moving from a condo to a house was a big decision for us as there were so many variables to consider. Although we had met Kathy through other business, we were hesitant to use her as we were more familiar with other realtors. We took a chance and boy were we ever happy that we did! Our condo was nice and in a great location, but so was the other unit in our building and it had been on the market for a couple of months! Kathy’s advice on our interior arrangement set the stage and her pictures and the description that she developed for our listing was just outstanding; the hook to entice the potential buyer. In about 4 days our place was sold and for the price we wanted! Then the search for our new home began. We described what we wanted and Kathy took us to see some properties to get an idea of what we were truly interested in. We are picky, and were prepared to spend a couple of days looking for a nice house that matched our tastes. On the second day, and only the 4th house, we found our PERFECT home in a neighbourhood we hadn’t even thought of. We are absolutely thrilled with our home and the location. All in all, it was a perfect fit all around …house and realtor. We can sincerely say that Kathy is absolutely made to be a realtor … the type that really cares about her clients, not just getting the deal done. Immediately, I recommended Kathy to friends and family who are looking for more than “just a realtor”. If you are looking for someone who cares about finding you the perfect home, shows tireless work ethic and sincere professionalism, then Kathy Anderson is the perfect realtor for you.”
-Brook and Sylvia Carpenter

“David & Kathy Thank you for all of your hard work with the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new one. As we had built our condo, we had not been through the process of buying and selling before and we appreciated the time you took to explain things to us and prepare us for the ups and downs that come with moving into a new home. What we particularly liked was your level of customer service. There were always prompt replies to phone calls, e-mails, and you even jumped in to assist in areas that were not necessarily your responsibility. Overall, this was a great experience, we enjoyed working with you, and we have already passed along your name to friends of ours that are considering listing their homes. Kind Regards,”
-Shannon and Mark Della Valle

“Thank you for making our first time home experience so wonderful. We appreciate you walking us through this new experience we will never forget! Thanks again! PS We love our new home!”
-Sasha Gingerysty & Greg Wells

“Selling my house couldn’t have been easier. Kathy worked with my schedule and put my needs first. As a single mum with two young children viewing times were dependent on my youngster’s bedtimes! Kathy worked around this with no complaints. She kept me informed of the progress and my house was sold in less than 2 weeks for 99% of the listing price!”
-Tracey Grindal

“David and Kathy Anderson have been wonderful to work with for the sale of our Calgary home. We were in the process of relocating to Edmonton and the Andersons were able to sell our house in one week! I feel that they helped educate us to price the house appropriately through a well researched market evaluation – they certainly did their homework! From beginning to end in this entire process they were professional in everything they did from detailing a comprehensive marketing plan, communication and just a great sense of humor – I will not hesitate to recommend the Andersons to my friends if they need to buy or sell. Thank you David & Kathy!!!”
-Lori and Darrell Thiemann

“Moving to Calgary from Toronto was a great experience thanks to my CIR Realtors, Kathy and David Anderson. I was so impressed with their knowledge, diligence and professionalism that I used them again 2 years later to sell the house I originally purchased with them. They went out of their way to meet my every need … from finding me a place to stay during my search in Calgary and locating a lawyer and mortgage broker to picking me up and dropping me off at the airport. They kept in constant touch until the deal was done. Talk about a full service agent!”
-Daniela Cousin

“First I would like to express our thanks for all the attention you gave us at the time of the sale of our house. Your market evaluation and your recommendations were relative to what was happening in the real estate market at that time. Your attention to all the details to every part of the sale was impeccable. thank you,”
-Jan and Lenka John

“I, and on behalf of my happy family, would like to express our profound thanks and appreciation to you, for making our experience of buying our first house in Calgary a wonderful one. I can’t explain how convenient and enjoyable business can be. It was a pleasure working with you. ”
-Omar Ahmed

“It was so easy to purchase the house in Airdrie, you both were there to answer any and all of our questions. Thank you for all your help.”
-Brenda and Ken Bax

“Kathy and David worked around our schedules and did not pressure us to purchase. We were able to take our time. When we did make an offer, they walked us through the paperwork and ensured we understood everything we were signing. We found David and Kathy professional and knowledgeable. We have recommended Kathy & David to friends and wil continue to do so.”
-Karen and Tim

“”When we decided to sell our house and move into a new one, we were nervous, just like so many sellers. However, working with David and Kathy gave us the confidence we needed. Their research into the current market, invaluable staging advice and awesome photographs of our home ensured that we sold our home quickly and for fair value. When buying our new home, we found the perfect house very quickly and part of that is due to their listening and learning what our likes and dislikes are. We felt taken care of throughout the whole process. Their level of customer service is something that is rare these days, but it showed us that their skills as realtors are superior. We would, without any hesitation, recommend David and Kathy to any friends or family looking to buy or sell their home. You will be sure that the biggest investment you make in your life is well taken care of!” ”
