Carole (my wife) and I have been very fortunate to have chosen this realtor for our house sale. Throughout the process for the original advice and agreement to use Brent as our representative, we have been provided with superb advice and assistance in making our home appear attractive for the marketplace.
– Every detail was thoroughly discussed
– Assistance was provided to prepare for showings
– Advance notice was given for showings
– Open houses (yes more than one) were carefully staged
– Interest from prospects and offers were dealt with professionally and
Courteously, Accurate advice was provided for terms, conditions, and process, Legal and contractual process was carefully reviewed. And even some emotional support during the sort of stressful time was helpful. The result was a flurry of activity and a sale was completed within 8 days for a selling price of $30,000 over list with no conditions and the possession date as we wished. Some might say that the listing was under estimated but in the market today, it was not. You know more than I, that the urgency to buy a house is driving consumers to exceptional prices, and I believe the process worked best using the approach that Brent suggested. I would confidently recommend Brent Sheppard as a realtor of choice, for any of my friends and acquaintances. Your firm has a valuable asset and I just wanted to make our satisfaction known.
To Whom It May Concern:
After knowing Brent for a number of years, and recently contracting with him for the sale of our home, I am pleased to offer a reference for him. It is not often you come across someone who is so obviously working in a field that is well suited to them. It is a delight to encounter and work with.
On a personal level, Brent’s communication style is open and lighthearted, and he demonstrates an ability to work with a variety of personality types. He is committed to building relationships with clients – understanding their needs and expectations and working with them accordingly. His advice is respectful and honest and delivered in a way that you can understand and appreciate his perspective.
Professionally, Brent is extremely hard working and willing to undertake what is required to meet the needs of his clients. The way he manages his business is thoughtful and to a very high standard. With his expertise, Brent was able to answer all of our questions and guide us through the steps in the selling process. He also leveraged valuable advice and services of other real estate experts to assist in the process. Some examples of these experts include a professional stager as well as a photographer and other realtors who specialize in certain communities to assist with pricing decisions.
Again, I am pleased to recommend Brent as a real estate professional. He is committed to helping his clients do what is needed to maximize the value of their home and to have a positive experience.
To Whom It may Concern:
I am pleased to provide feedback on our experience working with Brent Sheppard as our realtor. My husband and I worked with Brent to find our first family home and then to sell my condominium. The experience was incredibly positive and we have since recommended him to many other people who are looking for a realtor.
Brent proved to be very knowledgeable of the market when it came to buying and selling. He is a very calm and friendly individual, who listens to the needs of his clients and then guides them accordingly. I enjoyed looking at homes with him when my husband couldn’t join us as I felt reassured Brent knew what we were looking for and could fill in for my husband, so to speak. He was never pushy, nor did we ever feel rushed to make any decisions. He offered his expertise, knowledge, and advice in a way that communicated to us he had our backs. It was obvious early on that building relationships with his clients is important to him and helps him do his best for the client.
He had used his network and connections to find us homes that were often not even listed yet. Heviewed the homes he was going to show us first to be sure they were worth our time and truly something we would be interested in, which meant there was no wasted time and we had to do very little work ourselves. We had found a couple homes we liked enough to offer on, and each time Brent was quick to help us negotiate that paperwork. He also had innovative ways to do this paperwork electronically which we found easy and resourceful.
When it came to selling my condo, he was equally invaluable. His knowledge of the market, my need to sell quickly but at good value, meant he priced my home at a strategic point and had it sold in only a couple weeks. He used professional stagers and photographers at no additional cost to me and after one open house, on a long weekend no less, he had an offer for me.
We have found Brent to be such a great realtor that as I said we have already offered his name to others (who have found their forever homes as well). And, our professional relationship has grown into a personal one, because he is that great of an individual. My husband and I do not hesitate to keep recommending Brent Sheppard to others, whether buying or selling!
“Above and beyond the call”, this is what I think of Brent Sheppard. Brent Sheppard had our house listed hours after we had signed the listing contract, which was on Sunday. Monday at 10:00 am Brent had a couple of showings set up for the day. Our house was in a state of ruins from our two year old and my wife was at work. Brent met me at my house by noon and with his help the house was ready to show in an hour. Four days later we received our first offer.
My wife and I bombarded Brent with a million questions which he answered very diligently. Brent’s marketing plan had our house everywhere. The MLS, MLX, CREB, his own website, real estate magazines and in the real estate paper, our house was famous. After a week of marketing we saw so much of our own house that we wanted to buy it!
Brent is conscientious, highly skilled real estate agent who will sell your home. Brent’s market analysis, keen insight to pricing will serve up your house to buyers like a seven course meal at Teatros. When we decide to move again I will hire Brent Sheppard to sell my house again.
If you have any questions and would like to speak to me about Brent’s skills and marketing plan please call me.
My husband and I recently chose Brent Sheppard as our realtor for both the sale of our condo as well as the purchase of our new house. Prior to approaching Brent to sell our condo, we had listed it unsuccessfully with another realtor for over three months. Due to the buyer’s market and pending issues surrounding the condominium association and building itself, we had reason to believe our place would be a tough sell. We were extremely impressed with Brent’s knowledge of the Calgary real estate market, and the attention he paid to us. He had the ability to analyze the local housing market and strategically price our home. Furthermore, he offered personal advice and a stager to ensure our condo stood out. Consequently, our home was listed at an appropriate price, and to our surprise, sold in less than two weeks! Throughout the negotiating process with the purchaser, Brent’s calm and straightforward demeanor, as well as his years of experience allowed him to gain the buyer’s trust, which we believe was essential considering the circumstances surrounding the sale of our condo. Brent’s expertise ultimately led to the successful and seamless sale of our home.
As our attention turned to buying a home, Brent was extremely attentive to our needs. He took the time to get to know us and our taste, carefully selecting homes that suited our needs. He reassured us when we felt uneasy, and provided all the pertinent information and advice we needed to confidently place an offer on a home. We felt at ease throughout the process, confident he had our best interest at heart. Brent is professional, approachable and attentive. He is exceptionally trustworthy and based on our experience; we would without a doubt recommend him as a realtor of choice.
