When choosing a real estate professional, get to know their history! My clients' satisfaction is my greatest achievement and I am honoured by their high level of repeat business and referrals.
Alison, I wanted to thank you for all your hard work in selling the condo. If there was a Trip Advisor web site for realtors I would be submitting the following: Alison did a fantastic job selling our condo in southwest Edmonton. She knew the market extremely well (to the point where she could explain exactly why another unit in the same building had sold for more than I wanted to list ours for). I approached another realtor before deciding to go with Alison, but he lacked her depth of knowledge and wanted to list the property for considerably less.
Alison moved very quickly and we ended up selling the condo in a week, getting very close to the asking price. During negotiations she had a very a good feel for the purchaser and I am confident we ended up with the highest selling price we could have. Alison took care of everything and the whole process was virtually glitch-free. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending her to anyone.Thanks again for all your helpl!!
Hi Alison, Helena and I would like to thank you for your proficiency and diligence in selling and buying our homes. I know at times we were not the easiest clients to work with, so we would also like to thank you for your patience. Again thanks for everything and have a happy holiday.
Mauro Bagnariol and Helena Taveras
I just wanted to thank you for all your help with getting my Downtown Edmonton Condo sold so quickly. As a first-time seller I had a lot of questions and apprehension about the selling process, but it was great to have someone with your knowledge and expertise to guide me through it. To have an offer within 48 hours of listing in this challenging market, went beyond my expectation. Now that the sale is complete and I'm finally moved into my temporary home, I can sit back and enjoy some of that organic wine you left for me. Much appreciated! Once I am back from my trip mid-May I should be ready to start looking for my new property and hope to engage your services again.
I had the very great pleasure of meeting Alison for the first time in 2006 and have had the subsequent pleasure of unhesitatingly recommending her to both close friends and even closer family members since. Her encyclopedic market knowledge, outstanding service, unfailing attention to detail and patient explanation through every step of the listing and sales process made the experience of selling my Edmonton condo virtually worry and trouble-free in every way imaginable.
Alison is that rare combination of professional aptitude and "personal touch" attitude that makes her every client feel like "her only client".
I simply cannot imagine anyone looking for the "perfect" condo for their needs in central Edmonton NOT talking to Alison. She defines, in my view, the very best of what Real Estate agents can do for both buyers and sellers. And, as if that weren't enough, she is an extraordinarily thoughtful, gracious and lovely woman.

I found out about Alison through her web site. She has years of experience working in Edmonton. After working with Alison to purchase a Southwest Edmonton home, I definitely agree with all the other testimonials about her as a Realtor. Alison is very good at listening, plus focusing on small details.
As a Realtor she genuinely cares about finding you a home. I am a single father with two sons and relocated to Edmonton from Ontario. Alison found the perfect location, researched schools, amenities and school buses. Alison was kind enough to help find a nanny service for us. I was very fortunate and relieved with the efficiency she did this.
Alison found us a home and had a huge influence on reshaping our lives. I very much enjoyed working and going though the process with her. I would recommend Alison to anyone.
Alison, my Brother Rick speaks for our family and I agree with all he has said, but I would like to elaborate on our experience as your clients. At our first meeting on Monday, your walk around was thorough and insightful. You identified minor areas of concern to remedy and made suggestions for proper staging to bring out the best features of the house. Alison, we were extremely impressed with your rationale for pricing and the presentationof several scenarios that helped us decide what price range would be fair but meet our need for a quick sale.
Your background in design certainly worked to our advantage in the staging and photo session on Tuesday. We did everything you said and it worked. The web presentation on Wednesday and materials for prospectivebuyers were very professional, aesthetically pleasing and complete in their
Alison, your attentiveness to our needs meant that all aspects of the sale went smoothly: You were considerate of our frenzied reality and flexible enough that all were manageable. You listened to us, worked hard for us and offered us the best of your extensive experience and expertise.
Our family could not have imagined a better result and all in one week ~ three offers the day after the first viewing with the house selling above list price! Alison, we are all grateful to you: no-one could have done better.
You are wonder!
Alison, thank you for all the excellent work you've done for us in securing a quick sale for Mom's house. Both Arlene and I are extremely impressed with your knowledge, attention to detail, and your professionalism. We were especially impressed with how patient and sensitive you have been with Mom. Friends and family all commented on what a lovely job you did in preparing the listing, marveling at how well you made the house look in the pictures you took. We appreciate the assistance you gave us to prepare for the photo session.
Alison, Thank you so much for all your hard work in selling both our condos and finding our new home ---all in under 6 months! We are still getting settled, but our loving our new digs! We hope business continues to go well for you, and we will certainly pass along any referrals.

Let me again take opportunity to thank-you extensively Alison on Lorraine’s and my part ! In retrospect through the blur of the past few weeks, this has been a very good move on our part positively interpersonal & very worthwhile in outcomes.
And it was made all the more navigable and profoundly efficient by the tremendous foresight, negotiation skillsets, honesty & transparency, aptitude for personal interaction, professionalism and tenacity in behind-the-scenes logistics that you collaborated to share with us to the fullest. Truly a memorable, exhausting, fast-paced but nonetheless very positive experience and we felt throughout without hesitation that we clearly had the right people retained to assist us in this life milestone ….particularly since much of it occurred at geographic distance over the phone and e-mail.
The advice from both of you was well-placed, of good timing and clearly experiential. I would encourage you to continue using your introductory CV that you provided us on first contact. It assisted our decision to engage. In hindsight, it is a statement of truth and it is clear that you conduct your approach to this vocation by the wise advice: “Be precise; negotiate hard, but fair; and advise clients as if they were family.”
Best regards & blessings,

I just wanted to let you know that everything seems to be working well at the condo. Thanks so much again for all your help with the purchasing process. It is greatly appreciated!
Enclosed is a small token of our gratitude for your assistance during our search for the “perfect” house in Edmonton.

You have helped make our move from Belize to Edmonton go so smoothly.

Just a short note to let you know how appreciative I am of the job you did selling my condo! You went above and beyond the call of duty. You made selling my first home seem like such an easy thing-which I know it's not. Good luck in your future and take care!
I would like to express my sincere thanks to Alison Murray, REMAX agent, for her role in finding me my new home. As a first-time homebuyer, I found Alison to be informative, pleasant and helpful throughout the process. I was very impressed with the number of properties that Alison was able to find that suited my rather unusual requirements, and I am delighted with what is now my home. I have no hesitation in recommending Alison as an agent, and I am confident that her performance for all of her clients will be as excellent as that of my experience.

What convinced me to work with Alison was her enthusiasm, energy, and dedication. During the course of our dealings, Alison proved her professionalism, dedication and loyalty to me as a client. She is very focused, totally thorough, and has a friendly, open-minded, and personable approach. I believe that because Alison got to know me as a person, not just a client, she understood what I was really looking for in a home, and found exactly the right property.
If you are planning a real estate transaction - sale or purchase - I highly recommend that you take Alison Murray on as your partner. I know from my experience with her that she will represent you with professionalism, determination and dignity. You can be confident that Alison always has your best interests in mind, and that she will help you achieve your goals.Please feel free to contact me if you have any concerns or questions.
Poonam asked me to thank you very much for the flowers and all of the help that you have given us. I certainly will be letting my friends know of your excellent services.
I just wanted to send a note to thank you very much, once again. I have had a hectic month but managed to move a lot of stuff in last week.

Take care and we plan to work with you again some day!
