Barry was great to deal with and knew every single option of every decision we had to make and offered great advice compared to who I ever dealt with in the past. Would highly recommend ! - Mathieu Tremblay
Very professional and responsive, Great advice for staging and feel this helped with the sale. Quick turnaround. Ended up being a loss but I feel it was minimized considering the market and other factors. - Brendan
Being a first time home buyer came with a lot of stress and worry but after meeting with Cynthia for the first time we knew that we’d be taken care of. She took all of the stress away and made the process unbelievably easy for us. I would recommend her to anybody looking for a professional agent who has your best interests in mind! - Brennen
Dealing with Barry in buying our first investment property was a fantastic experience. They were extremely knowledgeable with the city secondary suites by laws, would highly recommend them! So glad we picked him! - Paola
I have both bought and sold a property with Cynthia Culhane. She thoroughly walked me through the entire process and managed my expectations throughout so there were no surprises. Cynthia was always available to answer questions and always made sure that I fully understood the next steps or where we were at. In business, trust and relationships are critical and - if you want to work with someone with whom you can partner with - I can't recommend Cynthia Culhane enough because you will be taken care of with a sense of care that is more than anything fiduciary. 10/10. - Kate Madden

We pride ourselves in communication and transparency. This testimonial suggests we are doing things right by our clients. Thanks again for the kind words. Stay safe and well Kate!
Cynthia was our realtor for buying and selling this home. She also sold our previous home. We have found her to be honest, professional and very knowledgeable about the market and her profession. This was a tough year to be selling and she went above and beyond to make that happen. We would recommend her wholeheartedly! - Leona Petrick
Reply: Thanks for such kind words Leona!! It's easy to do a great job when you have clients like I have!! You and Brad were a pleasure to work with and made a fairly stressful situation fun, believe it or not!! I hope retirement is all you hoped it to be. ~ Cynthia
This isn’t our first time having Barry as our agent. He has been involved in both the selling and buying a home in the past. As well as a purchase with our Son and Daughter-in-law . Barry is very knowledgeable, willing to listen to our needs and roll with the constant changing circumstances. Barry went above and beyond to successfully sell and purchase a new home during these trying times. Thank you, Barry - Jane Brunton
Reply: Thanks so much, the two of you and your family have always been so great to me, appreciate it! I would have to say the best part is you're famous Janey line to me on a Friday night, word fr word "Sorry to interrupt my wine and fire but do you have any updates for me?"
Barry was awesome and made the process of buying our first home easy and enjoyable. He is very knowledgeable and has a lot of great connects in the industry. He did a great job of walking us through each aspect of the buying process. I would highly recommend Barry to anyone looking into real-estate in Calgary. - Katie Tait
Reply: Thank you for allowing us to work for you, really was our pleasure. As first time buyers you were very trusting and willing to learn which I believe was the perfect equation to achieve the right house for you.
Wonderful realtor. Barry definitely knows his stuff! It was our first house purchase so we really valued his lead in the negotiations (of which he was totally spot on), plus he had an abundance of home reno ideas that we appreciated and are definitely going to integrate in our new home. Would recommend him to anyone else without a doubt!! - Kristen Adams
Reply: Thanks so much for the kind review, like many first tie buyers especially starting a new family you really invested in learning and asking questions while following our lead. I really love the house you purchased with the location that I believe will the perfect work / family/ life balance!
Barry was absolutely fantastic, could not recommend more highly! He was not at all pushy and as we were first time buyers he took lots of time to teach us the ins-and-outs of purchasing a home. Through the entire process we always felt that we were in extremely capable hands and that Barry was fully looking out for our long-term interests. - Aron Zahradka
Reply: Thank you so much for the greta recommendations and review. I really appreciate first time buyers with so much enthusiasm for learning and investing in a first family home!
Thank you Cynthia and Barry for your assistance and time in selling our house. We are truly grateful for your experience and help. We will be sure to see you when we are ready to buy again - Angie and Bill Hamm
Reply: Thanks so much for choosing us, we really enjoyed how you listened to our advise to prep the home then stayed on board to achieve the end result. Best of luck in the future and see you on the ball diamonds.
Barry and Cynthia were great to work with buying my first home. They had great advice on the pro’s and cons of each property we looked at and I did not feel rushed or pressured to buy anything. Buying a house is a huge investment and Barry and Cynthia are a great team who pull from their many resources to assist you in making an informed decision. They are approachable and highly responsive, which was great as I feel I had a million questions. They were very quick to answer any questions I had either by phone, email or a quick text message. I highly recommend this team of professionals. - Paul R.
Reply: Thank you for the fantastic review, really glad we passed our first zoom interview with you! Cynthia and I always enjoy dealing with first time buyers that we can help guide and can deal with our sense of humour, makes our jobs fun.
Cynthia was the epitome of professionalism. She is approachable, knowledgeable, and went above and beyond to help me with selling my property during these uncertain times. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Barry and Cynthia! - Patricia Bueckert
Reply: It is so easy to do a great job working with great clients like you Patti!! I am so glad we were able to sell your home in the timing in which you wanted it sold by and for a great price. Right at the beginning of the abyss of COVID and we did it together. Thanks again for choosing us, it was our pleasure!
Thank you so much helping us with the sale. It really made things easier for us during these busy times. Also, having things go smoothly during these strange Covid times. - Dawn
Reply: Dawn we appreciate your kind words, you are truly the calmest person we met as we had to work through this years covid times and surprise hail storms, thank you.
During our first home buying process, having Barry as our realtor was a great asset. Barry took the time to explain in details everything through the process of purchase. He was always there to answer all of our questions over the phone, by email or even by a virtual meeting on Zoom. He is very experienced and knowledgeable. He is also very professional and never tried to rush us to make a decision. We would highly recommend Barry to anyone looking for a great realtor. - Michael Mahrous
Reply: Thank you for the review, we are pleased that you were able to search for us on line, interview through zoom and choose us, it was an honour. I really appreciated he in depth questions, sometimes clients are afraid to ask because they're not sure, you asked and allowed me to find the answer if I didn't know at the time. You and your wife were great to work with while learn more about the new city you choose as home.
We had a wonderful experience buying our first home with Barry’s help. He was very knowledgeable about the market and shared his experience with us in choosing a home; he helped us see the potential in each place we viewed, which led to us making some updates to the property before we moved in; we are so happy with the result. He was always available for our many questions as anxious first time buyers. We would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a realtor! - Jennifer Pavez
Reply: Thank you, you were our first possession this year as a new family purchasing a first home in the covid times! Really enjoyed your patience and understanding and truly from the heart appreciate both you and your husband as front line workers! What a year.
Cynthia was awesome. She helped make the enormous task of buying our first house easy and fun. She is friendly and knowledgeable and was always able to answer our questions and help us through the stressful parts. - Jeff Green
Reply: Thanks for the kind words Jeff. You and Amanda were an absolute pleasure to work with... not to mention getting to know Nathan, what a gem. First time Buyers are so fun, especially ones that have great sense of humours and don't wear matching socks... ever! Thanks for letting me be a part of this amazing journey with you.
Very informative and always very attentive to needs. He is very realistic as well. He helped us through a very tough time of selling in this Alberta Climate... this is impressive!! - Siva Rajadurai
Barry went above and beyond to help us sell our home. He was always available whenever we had any questions or concerns. He helped calm us down when showings were not coming as quickly as we had hoped. He is extremely good at his job and I would highly recommend him to sell or buy your home. - Heather Davies
Barry went above and beyond to ensure we closed on our dream home. We could not have done it without him, especially since we were out of the country throughout negotiations. We would highly recommend to friends and family looking to buy or sell their next home. Thank you again! - Mackenzie Naylor
Thanks for everything this was becoming a little stressful as showings dropped off completely after election. Price was lower than we wanted but was expected with current conditions. Thanks Barry for always keeping our spirits up. - Howard Davies
I have know Barry for awhile now and have bought and sold a few places with him. He always gets the best price in a very timely manner. I look for his valued opinion and knowledge on all real estate matters. He is prompt and communication is excellent. Thanks again Barry - Derek MacKay
Amazing team to work with- very knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. They made the transition buying in Alberta extremely easy. We would recommend them to anyone looking to buy or who is thinking of buying here. They were extremely honest and gave their personal opinion when asked. - Melanie Vankoughnett
I wanted to thank Barry for his patience on showing multiple homes until the right one was found. Renovation and tenant experience was helpful to the process as well. The core function of the website was very helpful in searching for a home, however, there are usability and interface things that could be improved on. Have already recommended Barry's services to others. - Mitchell Latimer
I’ve worked with Cynthia a few times now on selling and buying of homes and always found that she does her homework and will sway me away when a property didn’t seem like a perfect match. Very pleasant experience. Highly recommended! - Trevor Horvath
Thank you Cynthia for helping us sell our house and then also helping us to find our dream acreage! You are wonderful to work with. (Also, Thanks to you and Barry for doing open houses in -30 weather). We also really appreciated the referrals to a great stager and mortgage broker. My only suggestion would to be more active on Facebook and Instagram page. These platforms are super important to keep updated so that the houses that are on the market keep coming up in the feeds of people who are buying. - Jennifer
Barry and Cynthia made this process super easy. We had 1 month to buy and they were able to find us the right home just in time! They're amazing people that know their stuff! - Josh Muir
Barry was fantastic from start to end, and then some. He was never pushy, and took into consideration what we wanted in a home. No matter how indecisive we were, he always kept us calm and level headed with his knowledge. In addition to his knowledge about the industry, he was always super personable and friendly. Despite the professional relationship, we now also consider him a friend. To anyone looking for an agent, don't look any further. Go with Barry & Cynthia. You won't regret it! - Heather Tran
Reply: You two are the best, never indecisive, it's hard as a first time buyer to understand real estate and options. Cynthia and I just educate and guide so you can make the proper decisions for you and your family. Yes the great part of teaching is we get to make friends along the way!
Barry brought such a refreshing feeling to the us as our realtor. He was super knowledgeable, not pushy, listened and responded well to everything we were looking for, and kept us within our price range. I would recommend Barry Klatt to anyone looking to buy or sell. - Luke Ceraldi
Reply: Thanks for the kind review, great thing about doing this for 20 years is I get to work with friends!
Barry has provided an excellent service with his knowledge . He was very pleasant and patient, while made sure all info was provided . I would highly recommend using his service. You can reach out for reference to myself @ [email protected] - Ashish and Shweta
Reply: Welcome to Calgary thanks for the review and was a pleasure helping you and your family!
We have zero complaints and/or suggestions. Cynthia was by far an amazing agent and we wouldn't hesitate to hire her again. We have referred her and Barry and will continue to do so! Buying and selling homes is a very stressful process and Cynthia went above and beyond to make the process smooth and memorable for our family. Thank you a hundred times over! - Alanna Blixt
Reply: Thank you so much for such kind words and high praises. It's easy to work hard and go above and beyond for such great clients. You were also so much fun to get to know and really enjoyed our time together. Now, just don't break up with me :o)
Cynthia went above and beyond with the purchase of our home in Cochrane. She provided us with all the info we needed in finding the right people for the repairs that were required for the home and even covered the costs for one of the people that came over to try to fix a problem in the home. We would recommend her to anyone looking for a home to purchase/sell. Thanks again Cynthia - Didier Milliquet
Reply: Such kind words DJ, thank you so much. It's easy to help out in any way I can because I love my job so much, but makes it easier when I get the privilege of working with such great people. I'm so happy I got to be a part of the journey of you and your wife Diane getting to move closer to all of your lovely children! Thanks again for choosing me! ~Cynthia
Cynthia was fantastic! Very helpful and attentive through the entire process. Cynthia had her hands full guiding me and my parents through a somewhat complicated process since we were bringing two households together. She handled it like a pro. Highly recommended! Thanks Cynthia! - Ryley
Reply: Such kind words Ryley, thank you so much! We did have a few extra components to this transaction, but we pulled it all together famously. It was awesome, especially the day of possession, to see how happy you and your wife were when you saw the beautiful home you just purchased. Thanks again for including me on the journey!!
I met Cynthia when I requested to see one of her listings as I did not have a realtor at the time. I was so impressed with Cynthia upon our first meeting that I asked her to assist me with my search. One of the best decisions I have ever made. Cynthia has a way of making you feel like you are the most important client she has and she will not rest until she finds you the perfect home. It was not an easy task. Cynthia must have showed us 30 properties. Once we had short listed a few she showed many again so my son and grandchildren were able to view the homes. Cynthia was so patient, understanding and kind to my grandchildren while they provided their input to each prospective home. Cynthia persevered and we found a beautiful home that we love. Cynthia was professional, competent and compassionate. Although home hunting is not something I enjoy, I looked forward to meeting Cynthia as I felt like I was meeting a good friend. The day we moved in to our new home Cynthia was there and provided her 'special touches' to welcome me and my family. I referred Cynthia to a coworker and during her search for a new home not a day would go by that we would not share our gratitude for Cynthia and express how amazing she is. - Dorlene
Seamless. From first decision to buy to keys in hand, Barry led us through the process perfectly. Included in that is having great contacts from the mortgage broker to the lawyer, it really felt like we were their number one priority. I would highly recommend them to anyone. - Derek & Süz
Barry Klatt & Cynthia Culhane have a professional approach. They give honest feedback of your property and price it accordingly to the market place, I had many people approach me after the sale and said they were not surprised by the relative quick sale because it was priced right from the get go. I will use them again. - Joe Ricciardi
Best team ever! Cynthia would go above and beyond just to make us happy. She has been so supportive, thoughtful, reliable and most of all patient! Barry and and Cynthia are very efficient and they make sure they satisfy all their clients’ needs. Keep up the great work! Thanks so much!! - Roanna Aguirre
Reply: Thanks so much for the kind works Roanna! It's easy to provide great service when working with such great people. You and Joel were an absolute pleasure to work with and really hope you enjoy you new beautiful home for years to come. Thanks for choosing us!!
Great to work with! We were pretty difficult clients when buying, but Barry & Cynthia were patient, knowledgeable, and supportive through the whole process, and jumped through all our hoops like we were their #1 client. - Amber
Reply: Wow, thanks so much for the nice compliment. It's funny, you and Regan always thought you were so difficult to deal with, but both Barry and I really appreciated getting to work with you and all of your lovely little's. Thanks again Amber!
My wife and I were looking to purchase a new home and were on the fence about whether to sell the current house or try and rent it. I had done a great deal of renovations to the structure and surrounding property, and we were working with Barry and Cynthia to evaluate the cost benefits of each option. On the purchase side, my wife and I (mostly me) had a pretty specific set of criteria for our new house and initially I wasn’t sure that a Realtor(s) would be able to meet those expectations. As much as it pains me to say “I was wrong”, it’s the truth. Barry and Cynthia provided options meeting our criteria on a weekly basis and we went to view a number of places prior to making a decision. My knowledge of the Construction Industry is pretty good so they provided insight on the location and lifestyle side of things. More on the side of “what it would be like to live in that particular house/neighborhood and what it would ultimately cost (aside from the mortgage).” Some of this stuff you just can’t find in a book and is pretty valuable information. Anyway, on the rental/investment side of things they are very knowledgeable as well. To say we were skeptical of turning our beautiful fully renovated home into an investment property would be an understatement. Barry and Cynthia worked through that with us and provided all the necessary information so we could make a very informed decision. I would certainly chaulk this up to a “value added service.” Their personalities and skillsets compliment eachother very nicely and they are able to work within timelines and meet expectations very effectively. All told, I think the most useful part of this review is that I had a great experience and would ultimately use this Team again on future purchases and/or sales. -Jeff S. - Jeff S
Reply: Thanks do much for the raving review, you’re the only one that can comepete with me in talking, haha
Barry Was an amazing realtor! He made everything easy and in a way I could understand. I could not be happier with my new place! I would suggest him to anyone! - Nicole
Reply: Thanks for the review, you were great to deal with, always excited, ready to learn and very positive about everything.
Barry was very helpful and knowledgeable. My boyfriend and myself work opposite shifts and he was very accommodating. He was very thorough and quick to reply to any questions we had. The whole transaction went smoothly and we felt Barry had our best interests in mind. We would highly recommend him as a real estate agent. - Jenny and Andy
Reply: Thanks for the positive review, I love when any of my friends ( Jason and Laura ) refer me to clients like yourselves. You and Andy were fun to deal with, makes my job fun, can’t wait to see the shop you set up in the second detached garage, tell your dad Roger says hi!
My wife and I have closed three deals using Barry and Cynthia and their team. Sold two houses and bought one rental property. By far the most honest and caring real-estate team in Calgary and surrounding area. Barry is very knowledgeable and guided us through the entire selling process with great professionalism. He is personable, easy to deal with and knows the market inside and out. We highly recommend Barry and Cynthia to anyone looking for a diligent and reliable real estate agent - Michael McClocklin
Reply: Thanks for the raving review, I’m fortunate to know the majority of your family from camping to sports to business and you’re the best, don’t tell your mom, brother or sister that I said that!
Professional service and listens to their clients needs. It was apparent that when a property was available that matched my needs and wish list that Barry was quick to bring it to my attention and schedule a showing. Highly knowledgeable about the properties available. Scheduled showings promptly. Overall a great purchasing experience. - Jason Kessler
Reply: Thanks Jason, I’m the most torn about this purchase, I lost the best tenant I had but got you a great house with a dream garage!
I have found my real estate team for life! My latest house purchase was by far the best real estate transaction I’ve had thus far.....and I’ve had quite a few. They really took the time to listen and identify my family’s needs. Barry and Cynthia responded to phone calls and emails right away even months after the purchase when my dog dug up the carpeting. Thankfully they know a lot of local businesses and business owners. Best of all there are snacks in the truck, which come in handy after hours of house hunting. This team’s reliable efficacy is unparalleled. Calgary is lucky to have them! - Katie Booth
Reply: Thank you so much Katie, glad you live the inner city home, I’ll be sure to let clients know about your new business in the esthetics industry!
Barry was fantastic in helping us find our home. He returned phone calls and e-mails quickly, very professional yet relaxed and easy to talk to, provided great advice and got us what we wanted. We absolutely would contact Barry and Cynthia if we were looking to buy or sell and would recommend that team to anyone looking for an honest, experienced realtor - Coralie & Danny
Reply: Thanks so much for the fantastic review, email me at [email protected], would like to catch up!
Barry and Cynthia were fantastic to deal with!!! They are extremely knowledgeable of the market, very professional and helped our family with getting our dream home! We highly recommend them to anyone who is looking to buy or sell. Thank you so much Barry and Cynthia!!! - Scott Duesing
Reply: Thanks Scott, you and your family were great to deal with, Cynthia and I love when people utilize our 26 years of combined experience and it pays off, enjoy the massive yard and lake!
