We worked with Colin for the selling and buying of our homes. We found Colin to be strategic, personable, and dependable. We were also impressed with his negotiation skills and really felt that he advocated for us as if he were buying/selling a home for his himself. We woud not hesitate to recommend Colin to others and would work with him again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Colin! - Angela Chan
Excellent service and responsive to questions. Very short turnaround time which was appreciated in a market with limited inventory. Very strong advocate for negotiation of reasonable prices for property we bought, and a great teacher for history and average price points in the various neighborhoods we looked at. - Chris Lata
As a first time seller that has tried selling previously, Colin was really informative and attentive to give me the confidence needed to sell the house. I beleive his knowledge and attention had played a large part in how quickly and how much the house had sold. Ultimately, great experience and will be recommending him to friends and family. - Andy T
From the very beginning, Colin was extremely responsive to our needs and timeline. He had a very clear strategy on how to market our house and followed through with every commitment he made. It is very clear that Colin is very knowledgeable and passionate about his profession to ensure the best outcome for his clients. - Yuey Low
We are so pleased to have Colin as our realtor. Selling a condo as out-of-town owners could be stressful, but it was not the case with Colin. He was attentive, thorough, hard-working and went above and beyond. He walked us through the process before we even began, putting us at ease. We had a tenant in our condo, but he worked with her to prepare for photography and videography. He also walked through the process with her, putting her at ease. The marketing package he put together was so impressive, my condo sold within a day of being on the market! During conditional sale, Colin effectively negotiated on our behalf making sure to stay objective. Working with Colin was easy, stress-free, and we cannot sing his praises enough. Thank you, Colin! - Rachel Lee
Colin recently handled the sale of our home while we were out of province seamlessly. His professionalism and prompt correspondence made the entire process stress free. Through his creative marketing and exceptional negotiation we were able to get top dollar for our home. My wife and I could not be more complementary of the service we received from Colin! - Taurean A
I highly recommend Colin if you are looking to purchase a home or sell your current home. Colin is experienced, knowledgeable, and amazing to work with. He guided us each step of the way and made the process very smooth for us in our home purchase and sale. Thank you Colin for all of your help! - Menard
Colin was unbelievable as a realtor. I have talked about his service for my family so much over the past 2 years with clients, coworkers and family. We heard about him through a friend and were so glad we contacted him. We started on a plan to find a new home in 2020, and Colin was extremely patient with our VERY specific home goals in helping us find the right home. He came prepared with great research on the markets, and really listened to us when it came to finding exactly what we were looking for and putting together a plan to make things work out. When we came across the Home we ultimately wished to make an offer on, he was very good at lending his professional opinion on our offer, but allowed us to decide what we wished to do. Even with the offer we made, we do not think we would have got the home without the work he put into it on a late Friday night for us. When selling our home after that, we knew we could rest easy knowing Colin had everything in total control and in the end he did another tremendous job representing us and getting us a great outcome in our sale as well. There is so much was can say about Colin, you cannot go wrong with him as he puts everything he has into it, treats you like the most important client has has and keeps a person very up to date on where things stand, answers questions quickly and he works hard for his clients. I will forever be referring him to anyone I speak with about real estate as I believe that there is nobody better out there. - Cory Brolund
Colin is a fantastic real estate agent and we were extremely lucky to have had him in our corner. He has excellent communication skills and is easy to work with. He guided us through the process of purchasing a home and answered all of our many questions expertly and in a timely fashion. I felt very comforted that he had our best interests at heart and was advocating for us fairly. We truly loved working with Colin and we've already recommended him to some of our friends. - Kat
Colin was great! Very knowledgable on prices and the areas. He was very responsive and gave good advice on a competitive sale. Extremely smooth transaction. The lawyer and home inspector he recommended were also great. Would highly recommend. - Justin Low
We spoke with Colin before even arriving in Calgary, and he provided great advice for areas of the city to focus on, and he promised he would help us find our dream house when we arrived. He held true to his promise. We saw many listings together. Colin was always honest about whether or not he saw value in a particular listing, and was excellent at pointing out shortcomings that we didn't see ourselves. He never pushed us, and never seemed annoyed that we wanted to see so many listings. Also - he was never late. When we did find "the one", he negotiated a solid deal for us that night, and also suggested a great mortgage broker and lawyer. As long as we live in the Calgary area, Colin will be our realtor - can't go wrong! - Patrick Sinotte
Colin sold my condo unit within 2 weeks of listing despite other units in the same building sitting on the market for many months. He was able to elicit multiple offers and sold the unit above asking. He worked well with my tenant and was very responsive to my questions throughout the process. He is knowledgeable, professional and a pleasure to work with. I'd trust him with any future real estate needs. - Janet Tse
When we found out we were moving to Calgary from out of province, I did a lot of research before deciding to contact two realtors who had really good reviews. After speaking with both realtors, I knew we should go with Colin: his response was very prompt and after our initial phone call he followed up with a very informative email about the city of Calgary which we really appreciated. We remained in contact with Colin, asking questions about Calgary and continuously adjusting our search parameters for over a month before we actually came to Calgary. One thing that really stood out to me during that month was the level of information Colin provided in each email whenever we had questions or comments. To me, details are so important, especially with the biggest purchase of your life! It showed that Colin was fully invested in providing us with the most important information and that he was spending time on his responses. It never felt like he was just firing off a quick response to us. I saw on his business page that he talked about enjoying educating people on the home ownership experience and that's truly what he did. I learned so much from Colin about the process of buying a home. He always pointed out things to note that I never would have thought to check! He also helped so much in always explaining our options. Now to the actual house viewing process: we were in a bind to find The One as soon as we possibly could. I felt guilty that we were asking Colin to show us so many different places but he was always pleasant and accommodating. Colin never pressured us to buy anything. I had heard that realtors would try to get you to buy something so they could get a quick commission and be done with the deal. Colin said we should love the house so we kept looking until we found The One. When we put an offer in, he honestly told us what he thought the house was worth. We had a different view of the market since we were coming from an insanely hot market and we thought we would have to offer way over list to be in competition with other buyers. And I would have thought that a realtor might encourage that (for their commission), but Colin was always on our side, explaining the market in Calgary and always trying to get us the best deal. He really personified the saying of "working for the client." When we found our house, everything was suddenly moving very fast for removing conditions. Colin gave us detailed instructions and he helped us with arranging the home inspection and connecting us with a lawyer. That was a relief because we didn't know who was reliable, especially with such a short timeline. When Colin called to say we had a firm sale on The House, he was so happy for us. It felt like we were all celebrating together. One person in my life has told me that my expectations are too high when it comes to people's work competence. He said I should just accept the fact that most people are bad at their jobs. I can't accept that! It's your job! That's why I was so impressed with Colin. His professionalism and competence were truly a breath of fresh air. It's such a relief to know you're dealing with an expert when conducting your search for the biggest purchase of your life. You will not regret going with Colin if you need to buy or sell a house! - Carter
Reply: Thank you so much for the kind words they mean a lot to me! It was a joy and a pleasure, and I'm so glad we found the home you love, not just like :)
Colin helped us on both buying and selling a house. He was very professional and knowledgeable about the market. He explained the buying and selling process very well, and he made the process stress-free for us. Definitely recommended! - King Yiu Woo
Reply: Congratulations! It was awesome working with you both and I'm really happy (and even a bit jealous) about how well you did in this market :)
Colin was an absolute pleasure to work with! I highly recommend him and would not hesitate to use his services again. Throughout the whole process, there was excellent communication from him and he kept me informed every step of the way. Though there were challenges on the sale, Colin remained calm, professional and positive and went a long way in reducing my stress and helping complete the sale! I would absolutely recommend Colin to my friends and family for their buying/selling needs. - Will Tsui
Reply: Thanks Will, it was great working with you!
Colin is a very knowledgeable and professional real estate agent. He gave us excellent customer service. He was always available to answer our questions and address our concerns. We appreciated his honesty, integrity and the security he gave us to make our selling process as smooth as possible. Thank you Colin! It was a pleasure working with you! - Janine Low
Reply: Congrats again Janine! I'm excited for you and looking forward to seeing your new home!
I used Colin to sell a property after relocating to another city, which required an additional level of trust and reliance. I was able to completely leave the sale of my property in his hands from start to finish, which was made possible because of his level of attention, professionalism and communication. During the negotiation he took the time to walk me through any questions I had and provided his insights in ensuring I was protected in the agreement. He went above and beyond by helping me to take care of meeting the buyers conditions including coordinating and taking care of requests I wasn’t initially keen on agreeing to. I will be using Colin again in the future and would recommend him to any friends and family. - Jason Chang
Reply: Thanks so much for the trust you put in me Jason! It was a pleasure working with you and look forward to our paths crossing again in the future!
Colin took time to educate and explain the process every step of the way, he made the process of selling and buying a home enjoyable and stress-free. He was always checking in to make sure we did not feel overwhelmed. Colin was professional and knowledgeable, giving us confidence that we were making informed decisions. After working with Colin, it is very apparent that he’s passionate about real estate and that he truly loves his job! - Josh
We've gone through 3 different real estate agents in our lifetime. Colin stands out as the best. Colin simplified buying and selling process a home enjoyable and stress-free. He connected with us often to keep us updated and answer any questions or concerns. Colin was professional and knowledgeable, and went the extra mile to negotiate on our behalf. He is clearly on top of his game! - Terry Chan
Reply: Thanks Terry, I'm really happy that things worked out so smoothly, and you're in a home and community you absolutely love!
We were first time sellers and the process with Colin was seamless and stress free. This was in large part due to Colin taking the time to tell us everything we needed to do to prepare our condo before selling it, giving us his professional advice when we listed, and negotiating late into the night. The photos he took for our place was gorgeous too! Colin treated us kindly, was patient with us, and responsive to our emails and text. Thank you Colin for all that you did for us! - Clara
Reply: It was great working together on this and congratulations again Clara!
Colin was so excellent to work with! He helped us navigate an absolutely crazy market and gave excellent advice and direction - his knowledge was an invaluable resource to us. He listened to us, asked us questions constantly to better understand, and was honest with us in everything. From the obvious things to the minutest detail, he was reliable. I would absolutely recommend Colin to anyone and everyone. - Reaghan
Reply: Thanks so much Reaghan, it was a pleasure and an honor!
Right from the start, it was obvious to me how passionate Colin is about real estate and his work. He was generous with his knowledge and time in educating me about the whole home buying process. He was quick and effective in taking care of every detail throughout the process and checked in with me every step of the way. Colin is professional, honest, patient and kind. As your realtor, he will fight for you and do everything with your best interest in mind. I feel very lucky to have had Colin there for the purchase of my first home. I’m also just as grateful to be able to call him a friend. Thanks Colin! - Holly Kung
Reply: I appreciate the kind words Holly, and value your trust and friendship so much! I'm so glad we were able to get you the place you loved most!

Colin was amazingly efficient and proactive in helping things run smoothly behind the scenes for us, and he was always available and great with communication.

We recently hired Colin as our realtor for our move to Calgary from the East Coast. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer Colin as a realtor to anyone, including family and our closest friends. Colin always put our best interests first – exactly what you want from someone working for you. He was always accessible, always on the ball. Colin was very patient throughout the entire process and we felt as though he sincerely wanted to find us the right home. In this electronic day and age when you can do a lot of the work yourself, we would not have found our dream house without Colin. On top of all that, he went beyond the call of duty in several ways. A job well done! - Derek Armstrong
Excellent realtor! Very professional and friendly. Recently had the pleasure of doing business with Colin, as he sold our condo. He is always on time, and easy to work with. Would recommend for anyone selling or buying a home, will absolutely work with Colin again. - Sam Ouyang

Colin did a great job of making sure we felt comfortable through the entire home buying process. He took the time to educate us about what we were getting ourselves into making sure to take our feedback into account. He was also always on time, making sure our paperwork was done on time. Colin's strength is that he is not in the market to make a quick sale, he wants to make sure that it is the right fit in the long run according to our needs. Vendors suggested by Colin were also absolutely amazing, we were very happy with our lawyer and home inspector. We would definitely recommend Colin for other prospective home buyers. - Vania
Only have good things to say about Colin. He has been professional, knowledgeable, and hardworking from the very beginning. If he didn't know the answer he will look into it and more times than not he will find out. Never felt pressured into a sale. Made purchasing a house very easy. I would recommend Colin to anyone looking for a realtor! - Tyler Ishii
