Obviously we had no recent experience of the real estate market. We had a fair bit of anxiety about the process and outcome. At that time the economy was becoming uncertain and it took awhile to find the true market price for an older house of our location and condition. John kept us realistic but committed and when suddenly there were two offers, we were the beneficiaries of his negotiating experience. Next came the search for a new property, the parameters of which had been planned long before. John steered us away from inappropriate choices while patiently respecting our changing wish list. When we located our new home, his knowledge and connections not only helped us secure it, but he arranged the perfect possession dates to allow us to gradually move out and in, saving us effort and money. He facilitated all aspects of the transactions, such as home inspection, financial and legal needs, to protect our interests. He gave us service we did not even know to expect. If you need an ethical, attentive, caring realtor, we can certainly recommend John Kwong.
We have bought and sold a number of houses with him, and feel confident in referring him to friends and family. John is honest, reliable and has loads of patience, he insures you are happy with your transaction (selling or buying a home). Thank you John!
We had the pre-approval done, areas we were interested in and a budget in mind, but couldn’t find anyone to actually take us through the buying experience. Then we contacted John. Right from the beginning John understood what we were looking for and where we wanted to be. John made the whole process as painless as possible and was always there with some very helpful suggestions. When it came time to put in an offer on our home, he never pushed us to spend above what we were comfortable with in order to make the deal go through. If you are looking for a realtor who will be there for you and who has your best interests in mind, John Kwong is the agent we would recommend without hesitation.
Not only was he able to sell our home in the time line we needed, he got us the price we wanted. We live in a different province as the home we sold and the level of communication was refreshing and comforting. He worked with us every step of the way guiding us through the negotiation process. John was upfront and honest with any possible complications that could arise during the sale process as well as outlining positive options we could take if need be. He made selling our home easy and pain free. I recommend him fully and without any hesitation.
John was referred to us by a friend and helped us find a great home in Ranchlands. After 12 years, we were on the move again and John got our house sold in a timely manner and with a smooth transaction while we were making our way across the country - we sealed the deal from a motel lobby in Sault Sainte Marie, Ontario! Through the years we have never hesitated to recommend John's services to friends and family and he has always come through. John has become a good friend and a trusted source of advice and information on all things related to real estate in Calgary. In a business environment where good people can be hard to find, it's reassuring and refreshing to know that you have a trustworthy, experienced, knowledgable, sincere, honest, fair, and genuinely good person on your side.
