Be forewarn, Joel Teeling appears and sounds nice but this realtor is simply not competent except to get you listed and the rest is handled by MLS listing. Be forewarn, Joel Teeling appears and sounds nice but this realtor is simply not competent except to get you listed and the rest is handled by MLS listing. He does not communicate timely. I listed 2 properties with him. One of the property got many offers but offer is always on the low side which Is not his fault of course, but the negotiation goes really slow and when I asked him if it is the other realtor, he admittedly stated that it is sometimes him. In the latest buyer’s offer, Joel sent me an offer with wrong amount from the buyer, a difference of over 15k but it is a good thing i caught it instead of saying great, I accept. When that sale finalized, I showed him the calculation of realtor fees and he agreed with my math and so I thought his office overcharged me with realtor fees. After 3 days of being upset, and Joel not doing anything to resolve my overcharge concerns, I finally called the real estate office and the office finally explained the calculation and I realized my own mistake, no thanks to Joel. He forgets the details of my communications with him to the point that i have to repeat myself. Because I told him that the mortgage was high on this property, he was very insistent on getting my financial information and mortgage information and he says it is because his reat estate broker is requiring this. It is such a violation of my personal finance life and what is worst, he keeps asking for details each time there was an offer because he forgets the financial numbers i gave him before. It was truly the worst experience i have ever had with a realtor and Maxell Polaris broker. As for the other property, for a 6 month listings, there was only 1 showing. Joel didn’t communicate any change in his marketing of the property because he does not have any. He totally rely only on his MLS listings. And on this second property, he removed the lockbox for my unit without telling me and when I saw that this happened, I waited for a few days to see when he will tell me and he never did. So I finally asked him and Joel didn't apologized and alluded to the fact that our contract was going to end on April 1, 2021 and he needed the lockbox for another unit. He excused his action by finally placing another lockbox for my keys. He returned my keys on April 1 as he thought our contract ended April 1, but it actually ends on April 5. Another proof that Joel does not care about his clients by not even taking the time to look at the listing. Avoid Joel. Nice guy but you need someone who really take the time to know the property and the client's needs. - Rico Aguillon

Joel sent many potential home listings regularly and also accommodated any properties I had found and wanted to view in a timely matter. He was flexible for viewing times and helped out with a variety of questions as a first time buyer I had. - Nichole

Joel is very easy to deal with and sold my property quickly. He gave my home the proper exposure it needed to sell. He is very knowledgeable with area market values and closed my deal with a price I was happy with. Very pleased with his services. - Jennifer

Joel was always prompt with communication and courteous, he was always very patient with our multitudinous questions. He was knowledgeable but never pushy and made a very good sound board when we went to viewings. He took our must haves into account early on in our shopping and did his best to find properties that fit our needs (we had some specifics for sure). He managed our showing limitations well (young kids) and was very accurate with advice and pricing our home, we actually got more than we were hoping. Very personable, and would highly recommend him. - Jessalyn Gillis
Reply: Thank you so much, Jessalyn! I really enjoyed working with you and your family! Enjoy your new home!
Very negative experience. Level of care was below nothing. Did not ensure home was cleaned prior to possession, and thought filthy home was "fine" DId not advocate for a brand new buyer with no experience. No Integrity. - Lisa Barrett
Reply: Lisa, I'm very sorry that the condition the sellers left the property in on closing day was not to your satisfaction. I tried to work with you to rectify the situation, but you would not accept my offer of assistance.
Joel made sure to find us a home in our price range that we didn't have to compromise our needs or wants with. He made great suggestions for places to go look at, was very flexible with when he would meet with us, and was always very helpful in answering our "first time home-buyer's" questions. - Courtney Mowat
Reply: Thank you, Courtney! It was wonderful working with you!
Joel is very personable and made our home buying experience enjoyable. He was always quick with responding to us about viewing certain properties, even on short notice. He would always give us his honest opinion about properties and would find answers to any questions we were curious about as well. He is professional and we never felt pressured at all in the process, if anything we put him under pressure and he responded well. Highly recommend! - Kristen Wakefield
Reply: Thank you Kristen! I really enjoyed working with both of you!

Joel was extremely helpful during the listing and selling of our first home. He patiently answered our every question and made the entire process effortless. We enjoyed Joel's calm demeanor, confidence, and timeliness. Joel is also particularly skilled at writing property descriptions. We sold our house in only a few days for the exact price we wanted! We cannot imagine a better experience and we hope to work with Joel again in the future. Thanks Joel! Amanda & Rob - Amanda Theroux

Joel was referred to us by the realtor that sold our house in Red Deer. Joel was a great guy to work with, first by phone then in person.Within a couple of weeks we purchased a home in Lethbridge. Even though we knew what type of house we wanted , he took the time to show us other options.He was always on time with schedueled meetings and took his time showing us the properties. We felt very comfortable with him and never felt rushed.We would also like to thank him for finding us a reliable home inspector.
Our experience in purchasing with Joel was excellent. I have dealt with realtors in the past where I felt like I had to fit into their busy schedule, whereas Joel molded conveniently to ours and spent hours upon hours making sure we found the right house. After searching through dozens of houses, we finally found "the one". The entire house ended up flooding due to frozen pipes just days before we were set to move in. Needless to say, we were devastated and ready to throw in the towel on our search. Joel assured us that everything would be alright, and jumped right back into the search for us without delay. He kept our heads on straight in a time of extreme disappointment and stress. He showed us the light at the end of the tunnel. If it weren't for how dedicated he was to us as his clients, we may have settled for the next average home. Amidst the huge emotional battle and stresses involved with purchasing a home, Joel was able to make the process so much easier and more enjoyable. Though there were many showings before we found the right one, there wasn't one showing we had where Joel didn't have us laughing and smiling by the end. Through his extensive knowledge and true passion for real estate, it was clear Joel would go far out of his way to make sure we didn't just settle or overpay for a mediocre house. Now we are in a home we truly love with ALL the boxes on our list checked off, and Joel was able to negotiate a great price for us! If you're looking for a realtor who knows the market like the back of their hand, this is the one. Joel is much more like a close friend who is genuinely trying to help you accomplish your real estate needs vs. an agent just looking for their next commission cheque. Thanks so much for all of your hard work, Joel. I will continue to refer people to you as I know they are in great hands with you!

I found working with Joel took a lot of the stress out of being a first time home buyer. Joel kept to the areas I was interested in and didn't stray from my budget. Joel is very easy to get a hold of during the process, which is greatly appreciated! I would recommend Joel to friends and family.

Having Joel as my Realtor made the process of buying and selling my home a very pleasurable experience. Joel is both experienced and professional. He sold my Condo in 1 week; which was truly amazing! He kept in contact with me on a daily basis and worked relentlessly in finding me my new home. His honesty and sense of humor made it really enjoyable to work with him. He is a dedicated and hardworking Realtor and I highly recommend Joel to anyone in helping them buy or sell their next home.
