“Thanks James! Although it was a tricky time to sell, it’s been a great experience all around! Really appreciate your advice and professionalism and everything you’ve done.”

Kalyna Bilinski & Ian Walters

”James was amazing to work with from the moment we met him. He was on top of everything and very efficient making the purchase of our new home a breeze. Even after we took possession of our house James continued to answer all of our questions and immediately helped us deal with a minor plumbing issue.
The best thing about James is his honesty and integrity which is so valuable to find in a realtor - as my wife likes to say, 'James doesn't have an unethical bone in his body'.
No need to look any further, James is a great realtor and an even better person."

-Michael & Katherine Falez

He truly cares about his clients and gets the job done.

“I was very nervous about buying a condo but James made the whole thing so easy. I didn’t know a thing about condos or all that was involved with buying one but James took me step-by-step through the process. With his knowledge, expertise and patience it was much less overwhelming than I had anticipated. He referred me to some very helpful and experienced people along the way, which made for smooth sailing in other area’s such as legal and inspections. Whether it was a silly novice question or panic setting in, James was only a text, email or call away and his honesty and integrity never ceased to set my mind at ease. He was always going “above and beyond” to find missing documents, answer questions and make sure that I was happy and comfortable with what was happening at the time. James has an obvious passion for real estate, an enthusiastic personality and a great sense of humor, all of which made him an absolute pleasure to work with. I would, without hesitation, highly recommend him to anyone wishing to buy and/or sell a house or a condo."

"I recently purchased my first piece of real estate through James Cote. James's constant communication, advice, and information, made this entire process a complete joy. For a first time buyer it can get quite overwhelming, but James made things very easy. Within two weeks of putting in an offer on a condo, I was handed the keys after doing a walk-through.

Thanks, James, and if anyone I know or overhear is talking about buying or selling a condo, you will be my recommendation!

Thanks again!"

"I just viewed your listing of this newly renovated home & wanted to commend you on your listing description & photos.

As with several others on the Mews, my husband & I have lived here for 25 years & love it - we wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

Thank you for making our street sound so desirable. Anyone who buys here will love the location & the neighbours."

Sincerely,

Bill & Margaret Crumb


"Hi James,

Thanks again for arranging the walk through last night & for the opportunity of meeting the renovators. They did a fabulous Reno job & your listing description reflected this without any exaggeration. The contemporary style of the renos will appeal to any prospective buyer.

I was serious when I stated that if we're ever in the position of selling our home, we'll be contacting you.

We are very impressed!"

Sincerely,

Bill & Margaret Crumb

"I've just purchased my first house. As a first time buyer I was dealing with a lot of stuff I've never dealt with before, like the politics of making an offer, legal fees, finding a good rate for a mortgage, and most importantly, making sure that I was picking out a house that was a good fit for me.

Luckily, I picked the right realtor! James was able to help me make sense of it all of these things so that I would understand them, and made sure that everything was done on time so that I could get into the house when I  wanted to.

I can tell that James has also made great connections, because all of the people he referred me to, from mortgage brokers to lawyers, to housing inspectors, were as knowledgeable and dedicated to helping me as he was!

I say "was" like this situation is past tense--in fact, James has followed up with me no less than four times in the past month just to make sure I'm still happy with the place and settling in nicely. Now that's dedication!

Thanks James!"

"As a returning client of James, I honestly couldn't be more satisfied with my experience! His professional diligence has been essential in the selling of my condo. He communicates promptly and clearly throughout the entire process. My home was featured with attractive high-quality photos, elaborate descriptions and multiple website advertising. James' tireless attention to numerous details like condo documentation and buyer offer, made the selling of my property a seamless and enjoyable experience. He ensures that all aspects of documents are 100% in order. After only 6 days on the market, I had an offer and a sale. James is the most honest and ethical individual you will ever have working for you. I have recommended him to friends and colleagues and wouldn't hesitate to be a returning client, time after time."

"When it came to selling my home last spring James Cote sold it fast, efficiently and with respect.  Honestly, it was a pleasure."

-Catherine Pentland Stebbe

"As first time homebuyers, we approached the real estate market with some hesitancy. We didn't know what to expect - we had a fixed budget and needed a home suitable to our growing family.

James' long-time experience as a realtor in Calgary, in addition to his honesty, were essential to making the right decision for our family. And in just one month, we became first-time home buyers! We're so pleased with our home - we bought exactly what we wanted and within our budget.

James was a key player in this huge milestone in our lives. We would recommend him to all of our family and friends."
