Amazing Service with Art and Michelle! We purchased a property remotely out of province. Art used many different mediums of communication to make the transaction go smoothly. The home showings were conducted through FaceTime and all paper work was signed digitally. Art has an incredible network of professionals to handle all situations from home inspection, mortgage (brokers), insurance... and more! Not knowing Calgary, Art listened to our list of home needs and scaled our search accordingly. Art and his team worked relentlessly and as a result he found a house that meet all of our criteria and more! I would highly recommend Art for any of your real estate needs, he brings a great deal of knowledge and experience! - Ed
Reply: Hi Ed, thank you so much for sharing your experience with us. It was truly a pleasure helping you and your family find your new Calgary home. We are forever grateful for the opportunity and wishing you nothing but the best!
I have worked with Art as both a buyer and a seller, and I HIGHLY recommend him! I’m not easily impressed, but he exceeded all of my expectations! He worked around the clock to make sure I had every advantage possible. I’ve never had an honest realtor that I could rely on, which is why I procrastinated from selling for years. Art was a breath of fresh air! My property was conditionally sold in the first weekend and for above list price! He invests in his clients’ listings and that makes his listings stand out. His professional photographers and marketing package made my property look like a showhome! Art works fast and is very detailed! There were a few unexpected obstacles along the way, but Art was always quick to jump in with solutions and kept me informed every step of the way. Art taught me so much about what to look for as a buyer, and how to prepare as a seller. I cannot imagine going through this process without him. His network of referrals are also top notch, which made this process as smooth as possible! I’ve recommended him to my friends and family, and they have also been impressed! - Irene Wong

Art was a pleasure to work with. This was our first time selling a home and didn’t know what to expect. He was very professional, honest, knowledgeable, responsive and gave us great advice as we went through the process. Art is all about establishing a relationship with his clients and ensuring they are happy. I would not hesitate to recommend Art’s services and will definitely use him for future real estate transactions! - Dennis Choi
Reply: Hi Dennis, thanks so much for the kind words. It was a pleasure!
It was a 3 year journey to relocate from BC to Calgary, Art never pressured us, kept us informed and we made many trips to look at property Art vetted for us, based on our suggested list. Art Lee is the quintessential professional, excellent guidance, sound views on the market and a critical eye on properties, buyers must talk to him first prior to entering into any realtor relationship - B hill
Reply: Hi B, it was an absolute joy working with you and I'm so happy we've become such great friends. All the best!
Art and his team are the best out there!! As a first time buyer I had no idea where to start or what to do but Art was there with me from beginning to end with his expert advice and suggestions. He really listened to what I was looking for and helped me find my perfect starter home! Art was so patient and always quick to answer my many questions. I highly recommend Art and his team for their amazing eye for details and fantastic service! Can’t say enough great things! Thank you so much! - Jenny

Art was amazing from start to finish. We were kept informed and advised what our best options were based on his vast industry knowledge as well as his understanding of the current real estate climate. He is professional and looks after his clients best interests from beginning to end. It is a very difficult time in the world and Art navigated it wonderfully. We will be recommending Art any time someone asks if we know a good realtor. - Sam & Tammy Corea

We so thankful to Art and his team for helping us through our journey. Listing, selling, buying and moving all within 60 days would sound stressful, but with Art's guidance and referrals it made it so easy. Art and Michelle definitely had their work cut out dealing with a unique buyer, with no agent and a significant language barrier. Through it all they were able to successfully sell our home. In addition to that, Art was able to help us find/purchase our Forever Home. With lumber prices increasing and tight timelines to sign a deal, once again Art and his referrals were able to make the impossible - possible. We look forward to having Art continue the journey with us, with our new build. His wealth of knowledge in design and his attention to detail will certainly ensure our Forever Home will be exactly how we want it to be. We highly recommend Art Lee Real Estate Team to sell or purchase your home. His dedication to his clients and his top notch service is amazing. Always looking out for his clients best interest! - Mimi

Thanks so much to Art and his team for their tremendous help in the purchase of our home! Art is incredibly professional; his attention to detail is impeccable and his depth of experience is very evident. He listens to his clients and really understands their wants/needs. Art’s dedication and commitment to his clients is undeniable. Did we mention his great taste and ideas?! Yes, he brings that to the table too! Highly recommended; you can’t go wrong picking Art and his team to sell/find your home. Thanks Art & team! - Walter Quan
Reply: Thanks guys, it was a fun build and the home turned out amazing!
Art Lee sold my previous home and helped me find my new home! He made sure that he found me a house I could call home! He is an expert in the housing market and made sure all the boxes were checked on what I was looking for in a home. He is the best real estate agent Ive ever worked with and I would recommend anyone looking for a smart and thoughtful realtor to call Art Lee! - Reena
Reply: Thanks Reena, always a pleasure working with you.
I went into this home selling/buying process not knowing what to expect! I had met with a few realtors prior to meeting with Art and right after meeting with him, I was confident I was making the right decision. I had a better idea of how the process was going to go and was eager to get into it. I put my house on the market following a few of his recommendations and I was lucky that it sold within a couple of months in a very unpredictable market. Whenever I had a question, Art had an answer. After my house was sold, came the fun part of finding me a new home! We went to a few open listings, and ultimately, I ended up deciding to build a new home. What was available on the market wasn’t quite what I wanted and by building a new home I could get what I wanted and still fit my budget and Art was instrumental in steering me in that direction. Through the process Art was available for all the major appointments from design to electrical and provided his opinion on items I should consider adding and look out for, like light placement, door swings and other things that provide value over cost that most people would not think about until it is too late. Overall, I would highly recommend Art and his team (Michelle) if you are looking for a realtor to either buy or sell. Their experience, knowledge, expertise and attention to detail made the entire home buying/selling process enjoyable and I wouldn’t hesitate to use them again! Thanks Art & Michelle! - M.T - Melissa

This review is long overdue but very much deserved. We used Art to sell our condo last May and he was nothing short of exceptional. From the moment we met with him, he instilled confidence in us and we knew we were in good hands. Art exhibits all the qualities you would want in a realtor. He is professional, honest, knowledgeable, dedicated, hard working, and truly cares about his clients and the deals he makes. Art was able to sell our condo in a reasonable time frame, in a tough market, and for significantly more money than we expected. Art also helped us build our current home and we couldn’t be happier. He was so supportive and really had our best interests in mind through the building process. We are so thankful we had his knowledge and support though a process that was new for us. We also had the pleasure of working with Michelle during the buy/sell process and she was very helpful. We are so happy Art was recommended to us - we not only had a great experience but we have also gained a great friend. We will absolutely use Art again in the future and continue to highly recommend him to people that are in the market to buy/sell. Thanks Art and Michelle for such a great experience, you guys are amazing. ~ Kat and Tyler - Kat

Here are the stats everyone will want to know first - In summer of 2017, we received an offer within 3 days of listing, which was at 99% of our asking price! We also had a lot of interest in the house beyond this offer, and Art continued to drum up interest regardless of receiving a solid offer. He worked hard behind the scenes to get back-ups just in case. We were referred to Art by a good friend and it was a great decision we’re thrilled with, and have been referring him to others every since. He has a great team of other realtors and a lovely assistant Michelle who has great real estate experience and knowledge as well, in fact I think she might also have some real estate certification. The Art Lee team uses technology and modern methods, modern marketing that speaks to the right crowds - after all, folks coming into the market now are those who have grown up with technology and are savvy to these things, relying on technology in their daily lives and Art and his team understands this “new” buyer, and the cross section of all types wanting to purchase, now. He has his ear to the ground with what’s happening in real estate, market trends, and so on, and showed us he’s got a good intuition. Art is in the right business for sure. He also uses social media which was really effective for us, and he keeps in touch often with all the details, no matter where you are, letting us know he was always hard at work for us. It’s hard to think he had time for anyone else, it seemed he was working around the clock on our file. It should be noted we were out of province for the whole thing so his constant communication and updates on everything were very important to us! Everything about Art’s work is well thought out. His advice, his contacts, everything. We got the right advice about what we could and should be doing to help sell our home, absolutely gorgeous photos, a referral to an AMAZING home stager, we LOVED the feature that we could be informed of showings automatically via text, log in and see details, we loved the signs and note cards with his sharp modern fonts, nothing about it was dated and made it really attractive to the majority of buyers. Art even had a couple tips and tricks up his sleeve about home maintenance, and other things we didn’t know, a notable example was when he fixied something in literally 30 seconds with hands for free that we thought we’d have to call a flooring expert to fix - every one knows fixing a spot on a floor is not cheap. He’s got skills! Not to be overlooked, were Art’s negotiating skills… During this phase of selling that can often be stressful, he was fantastic. He knows how to phrase what needs to be said the right way, he knows how to adapt to each situation, considering how to act based on all factors - even the time of day. Art also was great at gently talking us from making other potentially damaging decisions. He understands that in real estate things can be emotional. He also knows how to handle any hiccups in transactions very expertly. For us as sellers, that could have bene a factor but he helped us with that, he obviously knows his way around all aspects of the biggest purchase decision in your life. He will also explain everything to you very well. He really is an expert at this, and continues to get better with each transaction. Further he is a decent and smart human being, professional and yet friendly. We hold Art and his team in high esteem. Bottom line, we truly could sense that Art actually does want wants best for you in the long term. We could see he worked VERY hard for us, which paid off for both of us. We did not want a house sitting in this crazy market that was not on our side, as sellers. Working with Art was easy from our point of view and went by so fast - on market and 3 days later, an offer in hand thanks to taking all of his suggestions and going with his contacts. Listen to his advice, give yourselves over to Art and let him do his skillful work for you, you will NOT be disappointed. Thank you Art for everything!!! You and your team are fantastic! - CLB
