We are so glad we found Jody to help us buy our new build!! We started out looking for an older used home, but quickly realized a new build is what we needed. Whilst looking at older homes, Jody was able to guide us, give in depth feedback, and useful advice, noticing things about the properties we looked at that we would never have seen or realized. When my fiancé and I decided to go with a new build, we had no idea how helpful a realtor could be in the process! Jody took care of the finer details, made recommendations and suggestions on features of the build that would build value and overall make the house the home we were looking for. We couldn't be more happy with the service Jody has provided us and would not hesitate to, not only refer friends and family to him, but go back to him in the future! Super nice guy, very personable and professional! - Matt Gizen & Gail Mitchell
Best real estate guy we have ever had! Super knowledgeable about so many things regarding real estate transactions. Always quick to respond to our concerns and really looked out for our best interest. he was just an all around great person to work with. Would highly recommend him! - P & P Hamilton
Reply: Hey Double Pats!! Thank you so much for the review! So happy we found you such a great house. Relocating from Ontario is a big deal and always difficult when you are restricted with viewings. Being able to narrow places down by previewing places before you came out really helped. You are two great people and it was a pleasure working with you!! Have a great holiday season in your new home. Cheers!!
Jody went above and beyond helping us purchase our first home. He got the builders to include some features we wanted and remove the things we now we didn’t want. He had helpful ideas along the way of good ideas of small upgrades that would make a big difference in both value and appearance. Would give 101/10 stars if I could. Will be using Jody again for our second home purchase in the future and can’t recommend him highly enough. - Colton
Reply: Hey Colton, thanks for the great review very much appreciated. Looking forward to meeting up once framing has started. We will be able to make sure everything is in the right place and on track. Have a great holiday season!
I never thought it would be this easy to buy a house! I've heard the worst stories but my first time home buying experience was incredibly easy and exciting instead of the stress that normally comes with such a big purchase. Jody is very knowledgeable, efficient and actually cares about his clients. He took the time to get to know us and understood what we were looking for. Once we found the house we wanted, he worked quickly and got us an amazing deal. This guy knows what he's doing. I would (and do) recommend him to anyone who's in the market. Thanks so much, Jody. You've been more than helpful. See ya next house! - Stephanie Toombs
Would have given Jody 6 stars if I could, he is the best. Our family have used him to buy 4 places and sell 1; in all cases we paid less than we had thought we’d have to, and on the sale we got more than we thought we would. - Stuart Allan
Reply: Thank you to the entire Allan family! Much appreciated for the review Stuart!! It always helps me look good when you work with great clients. Always a pleasure and I greatly appreciate the business relationship we have. Cheers and thanks again and here is to great years to come!!
Awesome knowledge and help with this property. A pleasure to work with. Jody was very responsive and got back to us immediately with any questions. He also drove hundreds of kilometres to show us properties in rural areas. We appreciated his attentiveness. Would definitely recommend Jody for any future real estate transactions. Thanks Jody!! - Lori
Reply: Thank you Lori! Hope you and Alan love it out there and have great family gatherings and I am really looking forward to seeing that hockey rink up and running. So happy things turned out for you and really hope to work together again some day!!
Very helpful, and knowledgeable. He helped us find our first home(it’s perfect for us). We would definitely use him again. I am adding words to get 30 words limit. - Mike
Reply: Hey Mike, nothing wrong with that review!! Haha thanks and so happy for the both of you!! It was great working with you and best of luck with the new home. Just let me know of you need and help with any trades at all, we have a great team that has worked together for over 10 years!! Cheers!
We bought our new house with Jody in the first week we started looking, and afterwords sold our current home on the FIRST day it was listed. We followed Jody's advice to prep our house for sale and got the best results - a quick sale at a fantastic price! Jody is extremely professional, experienced and the best realtor around. If you are ready to buy or sell, you want Jody on your team. - Jennifer Steward
Reply: Hey Jenn and Mike, you guys did a great job on getting the house ready and you deserve all the credit! The place looked great and it wasn’t surprising that it sold right away! So happy for both of you! Thanks again for a fantastic review! Much appreciated!
I’m in the military and was being posted to a new province at possibly the worst time to be selling my place (COVID) even in a terrible market for condos, Jody still found a way to sell my place. On the day conditions were to be lifted, the buyers were not sure if they could Secure financing, but some way, some how Jody made sure the deal went through. I can’t say enough great things about this guy, he will honestly go to war for you. Thanks again Jody. - Keon Schwartz
Reply: Hey Keon that’s awesome thanks so much for the great review man, total pleasure working with you and wish you all the best in the future, good luck man cheers!
This was our sixth home sale in more than 40 years and our most successful! Despite the Covid-19 pandemic, once the market was opened to showings we sold in days with two offers too boot. Overall, Jody was a pleasure to work with and we highly recommend him if you are looking for a selling agent. - Brian Vos
Reply: Thanks so much for the review Brian. I don’t k ow how I missed this. Greatly appreciated! You were both such a pleasure to work with and the house was an absolute beauty! Good luck with the new build and have a fantastic fall!!
As a mortgage agent, I am always looking for great realtors to refer my clients and Jody is always on my list of top realtors. He consistently exceeds my clients expectations and goes beyond the typical realtor roles. Whether you are looking for your first home, your last home or an investment property, Jody is the realtor you want. - Brad Gavin
Was satisfied with Jodys knowledge and work ethic. Not only sold our home but was very helpful in our decision on the purchase of our new home. I was also impressed with his photographer who also provided good info on staging. - Jim MCCAW
Was amazing at answering my many questions and getting back to me promptly. Made the process quick and easy and was very knowledgeable. All around loved working with Jody and will for sure again. - Andrew Hinton
Reply: Thanks Andrew! Looking forward to seeing the end results of the updates you have done. You were great to work with too! Made my live very easy and hope that you are happy in your new home. Cheers!
Jody provided excellent service throughout the list process and selling process. He is very knowledge and always easy to get a hold of. His photographer and staging consultant also did an excellent job. Everything was done quickly and professionally. He sold our house in 6 weeks in a very difficult market getting us 95% of our asking price. We would recommend him to anyone looking for a great price and a quick sale of their home. His friendly professionalism is a credit to his profession. - Bryn Gardener-Evans
Reply: Hey Bryn!! Thanks for the review. Much appreciated. You were all great to work with and it really is an amazing home. Good luck in the next chapter out in BC! Look forward to playing a round out there when I come out next year. Cheers!!
Jody is extremely knowledgeable and communicates very well. He has helpful suggestions and is outgoing. He is diligent in following up leads and represents us very well as the selling agent. I would highly recommend his services to anyone, whether they choose to buy or sell. I enjoy working with him. - Terry Ryan
Reply: Thanks for that Terry. Working with Ryan Brothers Custom Homes has been great, it is very easy to get behind a great builder that has honesty, integrity, and builds extremely high quality homes. The customer service and follow up you give your clients shows how you stand behind your product. It is easy working with good people that treat their clients right! Looking forward to 2020!
Great guy and great agent. Really enjoyed working with him. Make the process really easy for first time home buyers. Will definitely use him in the future when we are ready to sell and upgrade. - Stacey Miller
Reply: Thanks so much you two! You made my job easy with your easy going attitudes. I am happy we could find a great place! Just goes to show that things always work out in the end, just have to have the right attitude and keep at it. Cheers and have a great Christmas Season in your new home!!
Jody helped me with looking for a residential property. Always available and helped me with advice on the financing. Has a great team to support you throughout. I would recommend him to anyone and definitely use him again. - Shawn
Reply: Thanks Shawn! Glad we could help to start you out on your real estate investing journey. Our national partners help us service our clients needs where ever they need to go.
Very informative, quick to respond. We were always able to get ahold of him, and went above and beyond what we were expecting of a realtor. Would absolutely use him again. - Dana Randell/Nick Gelderman
Reply: Hey thanks you two! So glad we could get that dream home together for you. Looking forward to getting the rest of the family/friends set up too! Very jealous of that place out there, beautiful spot!! Enjoy, seen you in the summer for that patio pint!!
Bought a new home through jody, everything went like clockwork, had great communication throughout the process . Delighted with my new home - Stephen Mackinnon
Jody's knowledge and efforts, sold my house for a good price, in a tough market! Quick response times to my questions and concerns. Very helpful direction and guidance, so I felt great about the final product sold. Jody very clearly holds himself to a standard above the rest. Couldn't be happier with the whole process of selling my house! - Scott Feindel
Reply: Hey Scott!! Thanks so much buddy! It was great working with you. Your receptiveness to my suggestions, your patience in a tough market, and your quick response to any issues that came up allowed us to be a great team. It always is a joint effort and we pulled it off! Look forward to the next project!! Thanks again!
We recently got the keys to our dream home, all thanks to Jody. He confidently led us through preparing our house for sale, listing and selling a short time later. Jody made the selling process a breeze. He listens to your opinions, offers advice as it’s needed, and is always happy to answer any question. The buying was just as easy. Jody communicates well, advocated for his clients, and makes the whole process fun. That is saying something considering how stressful a time this can be. Two thumbs up. This guy is one of the best. - Ileah
Reply: Ileah and Nate, I am so happy you guys are happy! You were a lot of fun to work with and like all of my clients you made me look good because you made it very easy for me. Welcome to the North! Look forward to having a beer on that back deck, without snow!
Goes the extra mile to research and help assure client they are getting the right property! Easy to deal with and responds quickly to questions. - Leanne Vandersteen
Reply: Hey Leanne! So happy I could help you and Sean out, we had a tight window but we definitely scored a great house in Tuscany!! Welcome back to Calgary so glad you guys are back!!
Clients of mine that needed to get their home sold in difficult neighborhoods and in a really tough Calgary market needed a strategy to get their homes sold. Not only did Jody’s strategy work, they sold their homes at record pricing in their respective neighborhoods and sold them about 60 days quicker than the average home sales. Jody’s crew made things happen for them and his honest opinions with my clients made everything come together seamlessly. Thanks again. - Brad Gavin
Reply: Thanks again Brad. Appreciate all that you do for all my clients. Your knowledge in this industry is unparalleled and your ability to put mortgage deals together when others can’t or don’t even attempt is the reason why you are the best in your industry. Cheers!!
We cannot say enough good things about our experience with Jody. Starting with our initial meeting, Jody made it feel like we were working with a close friend. He was upfront, honest and provided us with quality feedback regarding our home. Jody’s network and experience was invaluable. After reviewing our property it was mutually decided that it would be worthwhile to invest a bit of money into renovating the home. Jody was able to provide us with a contractor that was great to work with, came in at an affordable rate, and met a tight deadline. Throughout the process, Jody kept us informed of everything that was going on and was always quick to return calls and messages. In a tough market here in Calgary, we were able to sell our home within 29 days thanks to Jody’s expertise. We would highly recommend Jody if you’re looking for a quality realtor. - Jared Vos
Reply: Hey Jared and Katie, thanks so much for the great review, really appreciate it! I have said it before, working with great people really makes me look good. You were both so easy to work with, we were all on the same page and I thank you for putting the trust in me to help execute the plan that worked out well. Wish you the best of luck in your new home! Cheers!
Jody was incredibly knowledgeable and honest. Jody was able to provide unmatched support from start to finish. Thanks to all his resources we not only completed all work necessary quickly but we sold the house at a record within only 9 days in a rough market. My advice is simple; quit looking for a realtor and just hire Jody! You won’t be disappointed. - Jamie
Reply: Hey Jamie, thanks so much for the review. This really helps a lot as one never wants to toot their own horn but when it comes from others it truly does help. I love what I do and I love when great people are happy. It was awesome working with you and you deserve all the credit for doing all the hard work. House looked great. Good luck with everything going forward. I hope to have more and more clients like yourself! Cheers.
They say good friends should never become your customers but in Jody's case it felt like the opposite was true for us! As Jody's clients/customers we became good friends. Jody helped us through to the point of sale and even beyond in suggesting a few contact names for some required renovations in our new home. Jody was always quick to respond and work through any of our silly questions or expectations. Thanks Jody for all of your hard work. Todd & Marie - Todd & Marie
Reply: Hey Todd and Marie, thanks so much for your kind words, it was my pleasure working with all of you and so very happy that things worked out. Looking for forward to seeing the reno results.
Jody's energy and frankness were very much appreciated throughout the process of selling our home. We chose to work with him after interviewing several realtors and I'm so happy we found him. He helped us price our home effectively, stage our home beautifully and his connections with various tradespeople were a bonus while we completed renovations before listing. Absolutely invaluable! - Alison Forsythe
Reply: Hey Alison! So sorry for the late reply I guess I didn’t hit done after. You and Bryan were great during the entire process. Very fun people and you worked hard to make it all happen. Good luck out there and I hope to pop by and say hello next time through. Cheers and keep smiling!
Jody provided excellent service for the sale of our property. We entered the market at a difficult time with a difficult property. Jody was able to coach us not only through the market but the property itself. It was immediately evident that Jody was not only a professional, but an expert in his field of service. Not only did his knowledge, advice, and assistance through our selling process bring about a successful conclusion, our initial expectations were exceeded when the sale was completed. - Travis Underwood
Reply: Hey thanks for that! Was great working with you two and I loved the enthusiasm in getting what needed to be done. The place sold because of your hard work and how great it turned out. Looking forward to the next project. Cheers!!
We knew we picked the right guy at our first interview with Jody. He was very energetic and confident. Our house was a challenge because we only had about a month to sell before we lost our contract with the house we were buying. We were selling in December right before Christmas and the market was down. Jody was able to get so many showings and gave us so much good advice on house preparation and was very good at communicating. In the end Jody was able to negotiate and get our house sold for more than we had initially thought we could get for it. He sold our house for more per square than had been sold in the last 6months in our neighbourhood. He made experience of selling our 1st home a very beautiful one and we highly recommend him. - Tamir and Jacinta Haymour
Reply: Hey Tamir and Jacinta, wow! Thanks so much for the kind words. Greatly appreciated. You guys made my life easy as you were both very understanding and worked very hard at getting everything ready for showings. It was the three of us that got it done without a doubt. Cheers and really hope the new place works out exactly as you plan. Great working with all of you. You have a great family. Good luck!
I had just moved back to Calgary and had to find a house before my short-term rental was up. It was a very difficult and stressful time in my life, besides having to buy a house quickly, and Jody was very helpful and professional. He made it easy and not too stressful. I would definitely use Jody again, for buying or selling. - Catherine Yuill
Reply: Hey Catherine!! Hope all is well, it was my pleasure to help out. You were also great to work with, I must be lucky to always work with the best people out there. Love your place so much. Hope I get the opportunity to work with you again! Cheers!
At my retirement age the real estate market is so overwhelming. Jody made the sale of my home easy and understandable. He worked hard for my family and got us great results in the time frame we gave. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the real estate market!!! Thanks again Jody! - Efren Barrato
Reply: Hey Efren thank you so much, I was very happy to help out you and Evelyn. You are both wonderful people and I truly appreciate you taking the time to submit this review. Eddie, you’re a great guy too buddy! Didn’t want to leave you out. Thanks again for thinking of me. Chat soon!
I really like to thank Jody for helping us in buying our new home. Jody gave advice at every stage and keep us informed as to what is happening and what needs to be done next. He is professional and with excellent negotiating skill. Highly recommended. - Kenneth Cheung
Reply: Hey Kenneth, thanks so much for the review, greatly appreciated! So happy for you, your wife and your son. Welcome to Back to Canada and I wish you nothing but the best in your new home. Valley Ridge is a beautiful area and I am quite jealous of the house we found. Looking forward to seeing the place after you're all settled in. Thank you again for allowing me to help you out.
Such a good relator! Met all the needs for our house and was very quick and professional :) - Sam Maheu
Reply: Thanks so much Sam. It was great to work with you and Rob. So happy we got the place for you two. It will be nice for you to be close to family in Braeside I wish you all the best and thanks again, will stay in touch!
Jody Allen is a go-getter that has a vested interest in making his clients happy. He was available to answer my questions 24/7 and constantly provided help and assistance during the entire life cycle of the transaction. He is a great Ambassador of Century 21 Bamber as his excellent performance portrays the entire organization in a very good way. Jody is simply one of the best realtors you can find in the industry and the best realtor I have worked with in 12 years. - Ken N
Reply: Thank you for the kind words Ken, I wish you and your family all the best in your relocation to Calgary from Edmonton. Cresmont NW is a great Neighbourhood and will only be getting better with all the new amenities going up all around it. That is a great house, not going to lie, pretty jealous of that place. Look forward to the backyard BBQ this summer. Cheers!
Walk through was done after purchase, so couldn't really complain if anything was wrong. Walk through was done on our own as Realtor did it on her own, before we arrived, gave us keys on drive and said congratulations on your new home. - Phil
Reply: Sorry to hear that Phil. I will definitely speak with my associate about that as I was away on vacation. I was under the impression that everything went well over all with the sale and the purchase. I appreciate the honest feedback and there is always room for improvement, we definitely will not let that happen ever again. It was great working with you and your family and I wish you all the best.
Reply: Jody was our second realtor and he got our house sold in the first day of relisting. Jody was great in the negotiation of our sale and our purchase. We were and are very happy with the service he provided and would recommend him to family and friends in the future. He supported us through our home inspections and provided us with multiple contacts for services to do with buying and selling a home. He is definitely you one stop shop kind of guy as his resources are endless. Again we are very happy with the Service provided and would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks Phil
Great knowledge to share and got me the best place. Very confident with Jody and was very professional. Jody got me my place quickly and set up with it. Jody was great with direction and easy to work with. Highly recommend!!! - Barrett Fraser
Reply: Hey thanks Barret it is greatly appreciated. Glad I could help out. That is a sweet place. Cheers and thanks again for the opportunity to work with you and thanks for taking the time to write the review.
Jody works incredibly fast. He is diligent and thorough throughout the entire home buying process. His negotiation skills really made it happen for me. The best thing about my experience was the communication was always open & clear and I never felt any pressure from Jody (I have experienced that with other realtors). Jody lays out exactly how it is for you and that's what made him a great realtor for me. Geoff Allan - Geoff Allan
Reply: Hey Geoff, thanks so much for the review! Really do appreciate it, was great working with you and your family, really nice group you have there, hard workers too. Thanks so much for referring your sister, Mom and Dad to me. Their deal closes up soon too! Look forward to popping by your pub soon, Cheers!
Jody was our second realtor we had used to purchase our second home. Our first home was with a builder, so we were used to having everything arranged (lawyer, mortgage broker etc). Since we had very little experience purchasing a home (without guidance from a builder and their team) we were quite novice and required quite a bit of assistance with the purchase process. Our first realtor was very friendly and answered our questions, however it felt as if we were still left with much information unanswered (as sometimes we didn't know what to ask or expect or what we should be doing etc.). We made the decision to shift gears and change realtors to be able to have someone that was not only knowledgeable, but would provide some guidance and talk us through the whole process so we felt comfortable and confident making our choices. I immediately felt at ease as we had lengthy discussions about different ways to get what we needed (ie. a purchase plus mortgage to make immediate renovations). Jody came with experience with construction and was able to identify things in the house we would've definitely missed prior to inspection and offer. I really appreciated his connections with his mortgage broker, lawyer and inspectors (all of these were arranged by him, therefore we felt similar to that of our first experience with a builder, having everything taken care of for us). We decided to keep our first house as an investment property after having many lengthy discussions with both jody as well as our mortgage broker and we are so happy we did. They both spent a lot of time going over details with us and answering questions about our first house (even though this was of no financial gain to them) we are very appreciative of the guidance and assistance we received. Jody still continues to check in with us to see how everything is. We wanted someone who wasn't only financially motivated, but someone that actually cared about our family and that we were making the right decisions, and jody was a perfect fit for us. We have been in our house for almost 4 months now and we are in absolute love with it! Stacey and Paul Uhrig - Stacey Uhrig
Reply: Wow!! Thanks guys. What a great review. Really appreciate that. Good luck with everything and really look forward to the next one!
I was very pleased to work with Jody. Never pushy (which was very important to me) and he came through when it came to my "wish list". I was able to find my dream home and it was in my price range I provided him. A big bonus was he was able to get a lot of various extras from the builder to make the deal more appealing to me. I would highly recommend his services. Matt O'Connor - Matt O'Connor
Reply: Thanks Matt, so happy we found that killer place together. I'm pretty jealous. Thank you for taking the time to submit this review. It really helps with new clients I have yet to meet. Love this job! Cheers!
I have used other agents in the past which were fine but my experience with Jody was way beyond expectation. He has a a very wide range of knowledge about the markets and construction. His service was unmatched, he always took our calls, made sure to be honest with us when he wasn't sure about something but always found out promptly. His network was vast and they all worked together to make our experience flawless. Man it was a smooth transacation. Have already recommended him to friends and family. Honestly it was great. Thanks! Greg - Greg
Reply: Hey thanks for the kind words Greg. Greatly appreciated, glad I could help out with everything. You have a great set up there. Will stay in touch and look forward to the next one! Cheers.
I have been working with Jody and his clients for several years as a real estate lawyer. Jody's deals are always extremely easy for me because his contracts come in well drafted and his clients come in very well educated. Jody was a real estate investor before becoming a realtor. He came to the profession with a world of knowledge and has worked tirelessly since then to stay on top of his game, and to provide his clients with service that is second to none. Ryan MacKay - MacKay Real Property Law - Ryan MacKay
Reply: To say that means a lot. I really try to make all parties happy, having a great Lawyer in place makes everything run smoothly and ensures that my clients are well taken care of. Your staff are off the charts Ryan. Look forward to many dealings with you guys. Thanks again!
Buying a condo in downtown Calgary couldn't have gone any smoother than with Jody guiding the way through the real estate market to find the perfect place to call home. A lot of people say their realtor was great, but when I compare my experience with those from friends or family, I know Jody went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. Whether it's his quick replies to emails or phone calls, willingness to do extra research on market trends and historical data, or pretty much having an answer to every question asked, Jody was a pleasure to work with. We knew from the very first meeting that he was on our side and wasn't going to stop until we were 100% happy. One of the most personable people I've ever met, Jody uses his friendly and outgoing approach, along with his business acumen, to expertly broker the best deal. For us, this meant getting the condo we wanted at the price we wanted. The standout quality that I recall most fondly from working with Jody though, was that he made condo buying truly fun. Not just the exciting parts, like signing the paperwork or the final walkthrough, but from start to finish. It was an amazing experience that I can't wait to do again! Joe Raiche - Joe Raiche
Reply: Hey Joe, thanks so much for taking the time out of your crazy schedule to write this, very kind words, it goes both ways having great clients like you and everyone I deal with make this so enjoyable. Seeing how happy you guys were with the condo makes it all worth it. Good luck with the practice and know that you really help a lot of people in need out there. Thanks man! You guys were so awesome to deal with.
I have nothing but amazing things to say about Jody Allen. As a first time home owner the process was slightly intimidating, Jody really put me at ease and made me feel 100% comfortable with the whole process. Even when I felt like the stress of buying a new house was going to consume me which I am sure home buyers can relate to, he took the time alleviate my stresses. I had previously worked with a different realtor and for months was feeling like I was getting nowhere, within weeks of working with Jody he found me the house of my dreams. He really listened to what I wanted and found something that suited my needs. He walked me through the whole process, making sure I knew exactly what was happening. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Jody. Making such a life impacting decision, it was so great to know I had someone truly in my corner, advocating for me and really going above and beyond. I am happy to say that I am loving my life in my new house and I contribute a lot of it to the time and effort and his caring attitude that he put in to finding me the perfect place. - Lyndie Sundby
Reply: Hey Lyndie, I am so glad your sister sent you my way. You were both a lot of fun to work with made my job so easy. We scored with that place man oh man what a beauty (Not that everyone else's places aren't awesome too). So jacked for you, looking forward to the summer BBQ party!
As a first time home buyer, Jody really eased me into it and walked me through the whole process. He listened to me about what I wanted in a home and worked hard to get me the best deal he could. Not only that, he is very knowledgeable about the industry and provided great insight into good areas that best suited me, and the advice portion was the cherry on top. Even after the purchase was over, he stayed in touch and followed up with me. He even came by to help me with a faulty door lock! which goes to show that he truly does look out for his clients and provides impressive service. Would recommend him to any of my friends and family. Cindy Tran - Cindy Tran
Reply: Hey Cindy, you are the best, thanks for that. Love your place so much. Lookin forward to seeing it when everything is moved in and ready. So bummed I missed the house warming. Next party I'm there! You were a blast to work with and thanks so much for the referrals. Hugely appreciated.
