#TakeOver: 905 Wentworth Villas SW, Calgary, AB

July 18th, 2018

This townhouse was magnificent; pristinely kept, 17' ceilings in the kitchen and dining room and an attached garage. It was also on the market for 100 days with another real estate company without so much as an offer. We came in on day 101 and knew right away that price wasn't the issue. We looked at the marketing plan and made adjustments including the way the listing description was written ...

#TakeOver: 28 Westmount Way, Okotoks, AB

July 13th, 2018

This house backing onto the Tucker Parkway path system was stunning; 2562 SqFt, gorgeous finishings and an incredible view...it sat on the market for 69 days with another Real Estate company without a sale until we got our chance. We started by re-evaluating the pricing strategy looking at what had sold in the past 69 days and determined that the home was overpriced by about 5%; that's a lot. ...

#TakeOver: 615 Evanston Drive NW, Calgary, AB

December 7th, 2017
One of the nicest homes I have ever seen in Evanston! This home was on the market with two agents for a grand total of 209 days before the seller decided it was time to get serious about marketing  and called us. We interviewed for this listing against two other real estate teams with the seller scrutinizing all three marketing plans and decided i the end that we were a good fit. The asking p ...

#TakeOver: 10708 Willowfern Drive SE, Calgary, AB

December 4th, 2017

This Home was stunning and I was stunned it hadn't sold after 107 days on the market with another Real Estate company. The biggest challenge with TakeOver listings is that the market has already seen them so often times we need to appeal to a new market, or create our own. In this case the sellers had moved out, so we had a big, vacant house to deal with, one door in from the main road (Acadi ...

#TakeOver: #105 635 4th Avenue NE, Calgary, AB

November 28th, 2017

This was a tough one...listed for nearly a year (358 days to be exact) with another real estate company in a very soft condo market. After we got the 'come list me' call we discussed with the seller the feedback (or lack thereof) received during the listing term, analyzed the condo market in Bridgeland/Renfrew/Crescent Heights and decided to keep the listing price the same: $199,900. 

We had ...

#TakeOver: 56 Country Hills Grove NW, Calgary, AB

November 23rd, 2017

This House was surprisingly on the market for 131 days with another Real Estate company before the seller called us. We couldn't figure out why it hadn't sold, it had everything; prime NW location, walkout basement, front attached and rear detached double garages, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms...it didn't make any sense.

We met with the owner, looked at the house and made the following plan:

  1. *W ...

#Takeover: 264 Hidden Ranch Circle NW, Calgary, AB

November 15th, 2017

This home was on the market for 107 days with the 'neighboruhood specialist' (seriously, you drive by at least 6 of her bus benches to get this the home) before the sellers decided it was time for a change and called us.

We looked a the house, suggested a few minor fixes and adjusted the pricing strategy and marketing plan to fit the home and market conditions including an uber cool Matterpo ...

#Takeover: 103-1717 60th Street SE

August 2nd, 2017
This little guy was on the market for 89 days with another real estate company before the seller decided it was time for a change and found us through our website. We came up with an aggressive marketing plan including new photos (the previous listing photos appear to be take with a flip phone) and a demographic targeted FB campaign and received an offer from a Vancouver investor after 3 days ...

Takeover: 42 Mahogany Terrace SE

August 2nd, 2017

This stunning home was on the market for 93 days with another real estate company without even an offer before the sellers decided it was time for a fresh perspective. We came in, implemented our marketing plan but kept the asking price the same, received an offer after our first open house and now have a firm sale closing in 3 weeks.

There are typically 3 reasons homes don't sell, price is ...

#Takeover: The Unsalables

September 1st, 2016
One of my favorite things about selling Real Estate is selling a home that was previously thought unsalable. This has little to do with my ego and more to do with the fact that I truly believe in the services we provide our clients and their homes. The following homes were all listed with other Real Estate companies without a successful sale, in some cases with better market conditions then w ...
