Client Testimonials and Reviews
The most important awards are my client testimonials. It makes me exceptionally happy and humbled to receive such amazing notes.
I have used Monika for 4 real estate transactions, both sales and purchases. I have also referred her to others who have been extremely pleased with her results.
On the sales side, Monika is very thorough in her market evaluation, takes steps to ensure any potential problems are identified and remedied before the listing, and negotiates well on behalf of her client.
On the purchase side, unlike many realtors, her concern is to ensure that her client gets the right property at the right price, rather than simply “getting the deal done”.
Monika listens. She is not aggressive, but she is assertive. She is extremely professional and knowledgeable. I would recommend her without reservation.Iggy
We were pleased to find the vast majority of our questions were answered by Monika before asking them. Monika was at the top of our list of agents we have used over the past 25 years for purchasing a number of homes. She not only listened to our specific requirements regarding purchasing a new home in Calgary but promptly provided a detailed number of properties to view that met our criteria. Her recommendations throughout the purchase process were invaluable and if you would like to receive first rate service from start to finish, we highly recommend Monika as your real estate agent.Adrienne and Bob
We could always contact Monica with our questions. We bought and sold quite a few homes and we found that Monica is one of the very best. The pictures she took of our property were outstanding. We highly recommend her.Louis and Gerda
Monika exceeded our expectations in selling our NW Calgary condo. We appreciate her professionalism and due diligence. Immediately after hiring her as our agent, Monika got to work with marketing our home and lining up a number of prospective buyers for home showings. When it came time to negotiate the sale contract, Monika’s skills showed their value as we ended up with a sale price close to the asking price (way above our expectations given the market slow down at the time). Monika also provided regular updates to us during the sale process and she was always accessible to answer any questions we had along the way. We highly recommend Monika as a top realtor you should hire!Paul and Agnes
