"If you are looking for a realtor to sell your home, my husband and I highly recommend Fred Brennan. He is an extremely professional realtor with oodles of integrity and tons of experience, but best of all he has a “roll up his sleeves and “get 'er done” attitude! We met Fred this year, when he came knocking on our door, in Bridlewood. We were so impressed by his professional and straight forward manner, that we decided then and there to hire him to sell our home. From our first meeting with Fred, we knew were in good hands. He gave us no pressure advice about the market, and carefully went over the things we could do to spruce up our house. We took his advice and are so happy we did, because Fred sold our home after only 1 week on the market! We got a great price and a great experience at
the same time."

I chose Fred as my realtor realizing that in the buyers market of February 2016, having a realtor with experience and knew the neighbourhood was key. Fred gave me great advice on how to show my home and the how to maximize the presentation. It was not easy to take some of his advice but he was totally correct, knowing what the buyers wanted to see. When other homes were getting one or luckily 2 viewings a week, I got 7 to 8 a week and had a solid offer in 10 days at fair value. Given that in my condo complex there were 3 identical units up for sale and only mine sold, Fred's experience, marketing and knowledge was invaluable.

Review for services with Fred Brennan 2016

When it came time for us to sell our home I diligently checked into several real estate agents including selling our home independently. When we interviewed Fred he explained the pros and cons of both and confirmed my findings that not using a realtor especially in a soft market really limits the exposure of sale to the home.

I was very adamant with Fred that the photos of the listing were very important and we did not like open houses. Fred explained all the details of listing with a realtor, including our options for cost. He took the photos himself, taking great care to get many photos, good angles and lighting. He assured me that if we were not happy with the photos that he would then have an in house photographer take them. When he sent us the photos we were thrilled, as he had really captured our home and all the important selling features.

The main qualities we were looking for in a realtor were integrity and honesty. Fred delivered on both of these points from start to finish with his gentle yet professional, confident nature. He listed efficiently, set up clients to view, marketed our home in many ways and used technology like showing apps and document signing to make the process efficient and easier for us.

Fred’s communication was effective in that he responded quickly to emails and calls and in person was amiable, listened to our needs and thus able to speak on our behalf to assist us to sell as quickly as possible. I would highly recommend Fred to any of our friends and family and will not hesitate to use his services again in the future. Thanks again Fred for your integrity, honesty and professionalism.

Dear Fred:

Thank you for your efforts in helping us sell our house and buy a new house this year. We highly value your attitude, focus on service and drive to work out the best deal possible for us.

As you know, the sale of our house this year ran into some unexpected hurdles. It made your job more difficult and that just made you more determined. We respect that very much; your dedication and hard work certainly paid off.

You have been our real estate agent for about a dozen years now. Even when we are not buying or selling properties with you, we are glad to steer business your way with our friends and families. We will continue to do so.

Sincerely,

Mike & Theresa McDonald

 

Dear Fred,

My husband and I would like to take this opportunity to express our gratitude for all of your assistance throughout the sales process of our home in the Bridleridge area of Calgary. Your local real estate knowledge and attention to detail was invaluable. 

We want to thank you for all of you effort and hard work you put into selling our home. We appreciated your constant calls to let us know what was going on, responding to any questions we may have had and your attention to all details.

We have settled into our new home in the southern interior of BC and we just wanted you to know how much we appreciated your help with the sale of our home in Calgary. We would not hesitate to recommend you to any of our friends or family who might need a realtor in the future.

Sincerely,

Claire and Jean-Guy Gagnon

 

We found Fred to be an exceptional Realtor. He not only is a force to be reckoned with at the negotiating table, but also has the personal skills to assist his clients with the (sometimes anxiety producing) process of selling. He is professional, personable, attentive, knowledgeable and experienced with great attention to detail. Definitely someone you want on your side of the table!

Sincerely, 

Tony & Donna Klazek

 

"Myself and my wife have been working with Fred and using his professional services dating back to early 2000. Fred has always been extremely professional to deal with. We have bought and sold several properties through Fred and we always refer him to family and friends. His commitment to achieving excellence for his clients is second to none. He always shows up prepared and ready to serve, and does it with the utmost of integrity and class. Because Fred is so proactive, you can always be certain he is working hard to deliver a quick and hassle free experience. He pays very close attention to the details leaving nothing to chance. Our most recent home sale saw Fred bring qualified buyers through our home the same day it hit market, which resulted in sale that very day, and we got exactly what we wanted and hoped for. In addition to this, it wouldn't have been possible if it weren't for Fred working closely with our then tenants, ensuring the home looked it's very best, which it did of course! In our experience, few people step up the way Fred does. Fred is who he says he is, and that is why we continue to recommend him to anyone who requires professional service and performance driven results when buying of selling their next home. 

Continued success to you Fred!"

- Brian and Janice Muldoon

 

Dear Fred:

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the wonderful job you did in selling my townhouse. 

At my first meeting with you at the Maxwell Office, you made me feel so comfortable and I really appreciated your knowledge of the local real estate market.

I was very impressed as to how hard you worked bring very thorough and professional from start to finish, and I have to say you restored my faith in realtors.

I was amazed that my home sold in one week of putting up the "For Sale" signs and also the face that I received 100% of the listing price.

Fred, it was a pleasure dealing with you and thanks again for all your help in the selling of my home.

Yours truly,

Shirley M. Stacey

 

We recently had the opportunity to use Fred Brennan's realtor services when we decided it was time for us to move. Having been in our home for 17 years, we really had no idea where we should start. Fred's suggestions helped us to prep our house so that it would show to the best of its ability. He was also extremely patient while we had him arrange for viewings at house after house. It was when we decided on the house that we wanted to be our new home that Fred's experience and professionalism really shone through. Not only did he help us negotiate a purchase price for our new home that we were extremely please with, but he also facilitated the sale of our current home quickly and above the price we hoped we would get. There is no doubt in our minds that the ease of this entire transaction was solely due to Fred and his passion for his business. In our opinion, you will not find a more professional, caring, dedicated, or skilled realtor.

Dear Fred,

I wanted to write to let you know what a wonderful job you did in selling our house. Selling a house can be a very stressful time, but we also had the stress of moving across the country. You certainly took that into consideration and made the sale of our home very quick, less than a week if I'm recalling correctly, and very stress free. You were always willing to book the showings around our schedule and certainly let us know if anything changed.

You were informative and up front about everything. There was no hidden agenda. You even found us a lawyer; at a very good price may I add. You also did some research and found us a really good real estate agent here in Nova Scotia. Which took a lot of my mind, since we had to buy rather quickly. 

Then there were the phone calls in Nova Scotia that I received from you. Just when I though things were starting to fall apart here the phone would ring and your pleasant voice would be in the background ensuring me that everything would work out fine and you were still offering a helping hand. Fred, you went above and beyond the call of duty and we will never forget what you did for us.

I would certainly recommend you to anyone moving our west or to any of my friends there now. You did an outstanding job. 

I wish you all the success in the future and hope that the fishing will bring you to the east coast some time. Just remember the door is always open.

Thank-you once again and take care

Shelley-Lynn and Wade Chant

 

 Dear Sir or Madam:

This letter is in thanks and recognition of the effort and personal attention that Fred Brennan provided during the sale of our home. His focus and diligence allowed us to continue with our moving details without having to feel the pressures of selling a home. This sale was not a typical one. Jerry was in Houston and I was in Edmonton during the entire time this sale was taking place. Fred's commitment to providing us with constant updates allowed us to feel secure in the progress of the sale in our absence.

The performance guarantee to which Fred committed himself was met, and exceeded. His knowledge of the buying and selling process, along with his research of the area and our specific home, made his plans for the sale and subsequent actions clear and efficient. Legal transactions were clearly laid out so that they too were performed quickly and effciently.

We will continue to use Fred's services in our future needs, and have recommended his services to family and friends.

We wish Fred continued success, and best of health.

Regards,

Cheryll Godwin-Abel

 

At the beginning of this year, my husband and I decided we were ready to look at buying a house. Being that it was our very first home buying experience we were a little nervous. Then Fred came along. With his knowledge and experience Fred has, he made this experience pleasurable, hassle-free, with absolutely no stress. He knew exactly what we wanted, took charge and made sure that everything was taken care of. He completely set our minds at ease; we knew we were in good hands.

We would highly recommend Fred Brennan to anyone who is interested in buying or selling a home. Whether it is your first home or your twenty-first, Fred is the man we trust.

Sincerely yours,

Steffany & Billy Briggs

 

Dear Fred:

We know that selling a house can be a stressful time for people - the showings, open houses and all of the competition (especially in Calgary!) but that wasn't the case with listing our home with you.

You are a dedicated individual who not only kept your word on your performance agreement, but kept us informed by daily phone calls on the progress. We would have never thought that it would only take a week!

Thank you for your extraordinary marketing skills and for the high priority you place on professional excellence. We will highly recommend you to everyone we know!

Keep up the great work!

Sincerely,

Gary and Kristy Linquist

 

Thanks for all the time and hard work you put in to sell our home at such a great price!

You do indeed really work hard for your customers.

Thanks again Fred.

Sincerely,

Barry and Dennese Burton
