Hear from Calgarians who have work with OUR Team

My wife and I moved to Calgary knowing very little about the local real-estate market. We approached Phil for the not-so-simple task of facilitating the purchase of our first home. Our goal was to find something with adequate space, not too far from the City and nestled in a friendly neighborhood. Through early discussions, and a review of our preliminary list of potential properties, Phil determined exactly what we were looking for. He was extremely knowledgeable, informative and answered all our questions without bias. It was not long before we found a special place to call home. If you are looking for an experienced professional to help buy or sell your home in Calgary we suggest reaching out to Phil Lepage and his team.

Phil Lepage and his team are first rate and professional, with a very considerable depth of knowledge in their industry. All of our dealings and advice from this team have been extremely valuable and very accurate. Their level of communication is second to none, you are never left wondering about the status of your situation. I would highly recommend Phil Lepage and his team for all your real estate needs.
We contacted Ken MacAulay when we decided to list our house, as he is the resident expert realtor on all things Elbow Valley West. Ken met with us and immediately put our minds at ease and came up with some good options for a plan of attack. Ken was very attentive throughout the whole experience and took care of many, many details including organizing touch-ups, repairs, and inspections on top of hosting open houses and photo shoots. In the end, Ken got us full list price in only 3 weeks on the market, and in this market, it speaks volumes!! Thank you, Ken!!!

Purchasing your first home can be a scary and intimidating process but working with Ken has been like having a close family member look out for our best interests. His experience in both the construction and realty industries ensured we ended up with a property that was both structurally sound and met our key criteria. Once we found our home, Ken went the extra mile to ensure we were well represented and that the purchasing process went as smooth as possible. Ken not only provided tremendous service throughout the process he continued to provide guidance well after we got the keys. At the end of it all, working with Ken was a great experience and we found ourselves a bit sad when it was over!

We would like thank Ken Macaulay for the effort he has shown in helping us purchase our first home. We went from living in a condo to a bungalow in a good area. When we saw it we thought it was perfect for us. We cannot thank Ken Macaulay enough for helping us find our very first home! He made the entire process completely easy and stress free. He has such a wealth of knowledge and a great network of people that made the entire process seamless. We wake up every morning in a home that we absolutely love, and Ken made it possible. Ken is not only a fantastic Relator, but he is such a genuine person. We had such a good, positive experience. We have recommended Ken to our friends and would not hesitate to use him again. Thank you! Ken goes above and beyond for his clients.

I went to ReMax for a number of reasons, one they are a very well-known reputable company (2) I know the representatives as they are exceptionally professional and trustworthy and (3) trust is a huge requirement for me as I am a single mom and unfortunately for some they think we are a pushover. However, I am not that oblivious to the real estate market as this wasn’t my primary home I was selling. They say it is wise to get two quotes and in this case, it definitely was. I had two reps come to look at the house to give me a quote and fortunately I knew what the house was worth, but I needed the numbers from the professionals before I made my decision as to which one was going to do the job right for me. First rep who was highly recommended from a friend quoted me a much lower asking price and they weren’t going to budge on that number. I argued my point, but they weren’t willing to bring the price up. The Second rep, Phil Lepage, with all his integrity knew exactly what that house was worth in the city of Calgary and had no intentions of taking advantage of the single mom to make a quick sale or maybe lowball, buy it himself and flip, just saying. Phil was more interested in getting me the full value of my house to make sure everyone was happy, including the buyer. Phil took the time to make a few adjustments to the house to make the house more presentable at no cost to me, things a single mom couldn’t do, like fix a few doors, drawers and other aesthetics as well. Photographs taken of the house were a real help as well. Phil sold the house with in three weeks approximately and for. Furthermore, I didn’t have to argue my point, why should I have to, Phil knows his stuff… I would highly recommend Phil Lepage and his team without a doubt.
I listed my home with Phil Lepage and his team during a turbulent time in the Calgary housing market.
I researched Phil's website page and thought it provided good information about selling and buying a home and their aproach. They did a great job of the market comparisons and providing all the details of selling a home.
We agreed on a selling price and listed my home. Their office did a good job of keeping me up today with the comments from the open houses and showings. As time went on we had to reevaluate the market conditions and make adjustments, which we agreed with. The end result was my home was sold for a reasonable price considering the times.
I was happy working with Phil Lepage and his team due to their professional approach and especially dedication to get the job done.
We worked with Phil to sell our home, and had a great experience. Right from the start, Phil helped us identify ways to get the most value for our home, and created beautiful marketing materials.
The level of communication throughout the process exceeded our expectations. The team proactively kept us informed of showings and feedback, and if we ever had any questions or concerns, responded right away.
We felt that Phil was truly acting in our best interest, and even though we had several early offers, he actually advised us against them because they were too low. We really appreciated his knowledge, advice and trustworthiness.
Phil has great negotiation skills, and we were happy with the final price and terms. He was especially great in the challenging, unpredictable Calgary market of 2015. Phil and the team even helped us arrange the sale of some of the furnishings in the home. In the end, we were very happy with all aspects of the sale of our home. We have bought and sold homes before, and this was the best experience that we have had.
We would strongly recommend Phil, Cathy and the rest of the team to our friends and family anytime.

I fell upon my future home upon scanning the MLS listings online. After doing a drive by and reviewing the photos, I determined it was a perfect fit and a great deal. I attempted to contact the listed realtor with no response. Given I had already lost 2 potentials due to other’s putting an offer in first, I was concerned I would not have the opportunity to pursue the place. A good colleague and friend of mine passed on Ken MacAulay’s name and said he would make it happen for me. No more than 20 minutes later, he had organized the keys and told us to head to the house to take a look. Within 24 hours I was a home owner. Ken took care of all the necessary details, was fast moving and great to deal with. He’s a friendly, understanding and helpful guy who goes above and beyond what is expected of him. Ken has the experience and knowledge of the real estate market which allows him to provide you with his honest opinion regarding initial offerings, what he suspects you can negotiate too and where to draw the line when thinks the seller is firm. Ken has an extensive network of contacts which he will pass on for anything you require. I needed a lawyer, and he provided me with not 1 but 3 different recommendations of where to go. He provided me with assistance with home inspection as well as personal aid and suggestions for small fix it jobs within the house. Ken thinks of the small details that you (or I) didn't think of – like arranging and taking care of changing all the locks on the house. Follow up on your house purchase – Ken has followed up with me a number of times to ensure things are running smooth; and when an unexpected leak in the hot tub occurred, he was the first one there with a bottle of wine to cheer me up. Ken is a great realtor who is fast, knowledgeable, experienced and really does become your friend. I would highly recommend Ken to any friends, business associates and/or clients and to anyone reading this recommendation!
