Testimonials

Anne Marie went over and above what is expected of Realtors.  While we had moved to another province, Anne Marie help us get repairs done to our house, arranged for yard work to be done, arranged for staging, and communicated with us almost daily.  This was a refreshing change from realtors that get you to sign a contract and then disappear.  In a really difficult market, she worked very hard to keep us informed and to help us present our property in the best possible light. – Lisa H.

We have been lucky to know Anne Marie personally and also had her be our realtor for both our property purchases. She’s always enthusiastic, honest and dedicated to finding you the best home for you. She has great connections and went above and beyond on so many occasions! When we buy or sell our next place Anne Marie will be our first call. – Danielle K.

I met Anne Marie at work about the time my husband and I were going to put our home on the market.  I knew the minute I met her that we needed her as our real estate broker.  She is very experienced and knowledgeable in all aspects of her job. On the first meeting in our home, Anne Marie discussed what needed to be done to get our home sold and for the price we wanted.  And that is exactly what she did in just under three weeks!  She works tirelessly and always with a smile! Not only were we lucky enough to have Anne Marie as our realtor because she is definitely the best!  My husband and I feel that we have made a lifetime friend.  – Marcy & John

I had a great experience working with Anne Marie! She is super quick in responding to all my texts, emails, and calls – even after my purchase had been completed. She is extremely knowledgeable of Calgary’s neighborhoods and its real estate market. I really appreciated how hardworking Anne Marie was in finding me a home that was safe and enjoyable. We visited many, many homes in all quadrants of the city and that meant working long hours each day. No matter how tiring it was Anne Marie always managed to make my day better. Thank you so much Anne Marie; you are awesome!!! – Iris

We met with Anne-Marie at noon and by midnight she had secured our first home for us. Anne-Marie’s ability to ensure confidence and assurance in us as first time homeowners was uncanny. Anne-Marie is friendly, knowledgeable, informed and experienced. But above all else, listens to her clients and goes out of her way to ensure that they are provided with all of those necessary resources needed in buying a home. – Shawn and Michelle

Being a first time homebuyer, I was looking for a realtor with extensive experience within the Calgary housing market. Anne Marie was knowledgeable, patient, and organized. She helped me find a property that suited my lifestyle and my budget. She will be my first choice when I look for my next property. – Amy L.

I cannot give enough praise to Anne Marie Richardson. When she agrees to sell your house, it is simply not a job but a personal pursuit to find the best fit for your house. I previously had my $915,000 home in West Springs listed for 11 months with an unending amount of showings but only 3 terrible offers. 2 years later, in a depressed market, I listed my home with Anne Marie and she sold my home in 6 weeks for more than any offer I had 2 years prior! Anne Marie didn’t just stick a sign on my front lawn, she pounded the pavement for an offer. When, a conditional offer came in, she pounded the pavement for a firm sale. She dealt with all the legal details of my sale with ease and grace, taking a load of worry off my mind. Anne Marie also answers her phone and returns messages, regardless of where she is. I didn’t realize how unique this was until I started looking at properties to buy and many realtors wouldn’t return her calls for viewing appointments. One realtor didn’t return her many attempts at trying to reach him for a potential sale for two days because he was hunting! This was a big eye opener for me, not realizing a lot of realtors aren’t working for their clients. – Liz B.

When it came time to buy a new property, Anne Marie wouldn’t allow me to buy a property that didn’t meet my family’s specific needs. In a stressed time, when I needed a new home fast, I wanted to buy a property that seemed easy. Where other realtors would have produced the paperwork then for an easy sale, Anne Marie did extra work to find the home that met my family’s precise needs. I recommend Anne Marie and hope you choose her so you can have an excellent buying and selling experience like I did.I love my new home, especially the craft room where I spend most of my time. Thanks again Anne Marie for all your help & handholding. I couldn’t be happier. – Mari

In January 2017, I met Anne-Marie at my mother’s condo in that we needed to sell, received Anne-Marie on a recommendation and extremely happy I did.
Anne-Marie was at the condo waiting for me to arrive, we entered to condo, sat at the dining table and began our introductions. We reviewed what she offered as a realtor and I spoke to what I needed as a seller. As the discussion continued I became more comfortable with her, how she carried herself and delivered her business ideals.
We discussed that my mother had been moved to a retirement facility and was ready to sell immediately. She then passed along her contact information and stated if there was interest to work together, I immediately said that I wanted to work with her on this sale. Anne-Marie was prepared and we signed the Realty contract, right there we began discussing the numbers and reviewed condo comparisons in the area. She was prepared even tho this was the first time we met, signs of a pro.
The discussion moved to how to prepare the condo for advertising and viewings. A week and a half went by and the condo sold for 17% higher then other units in my mother’s building.
Anne-Marie is not only great in conversation but in her business and real-estate practices, extremely confident which carried through to the final sale of the condo.
I would definitely recommend Anne-Marie as a Realtor, she has the complete package for all looking at selling or buying property.
After half an hour of talking, I felt extremely comfortable in working with her and would definitely request her realty services again. – Ken

We spent many years deciding to sell our condo in a market that was unstable, but finally, after some much needed advice from Anne Marie Richardson, we went for it! We really wanted an urban lifestyle and needed help getting there. Anne Marie spent so much time with us, driving us to locations, looking at all the possibilities, and teaching us to be patient and to get all our paperwork in order, for when the time came. Anne Marie was very patient with us during this time, listening to our needs and budget concerns. We were prepared! In the end we won the jackpot! We have the most amazing and perfect place in a rural town we love! Thank you Anne Marie for your time and experience and all the patience it took to get from there to here! We did not have to give up anything to get the place we wanted!!! We love it! – James and Marija Duncan

“Anne Marie is an excellent realtor. She took the time to find exactly what we were looking for and worked on our behalf to make the right offer, following up regularly to make sure that conditions were met. When selling our home, she made our listing stand out from the rest by having professional photos taken and did extensive research to make sure that we were priced right. Will we hire Anne Marie again? Absolutely!! She listens, is thorough, professional and will get you that house that you can call home. Bought and Sold our home in 2013.” – Lesley

“Anne Marie was referred to me by a friend of mine that had used her services to sell her house and buy another house she was very pleased with her so I called her to list my house. She is very professional and kind. I recently became a widow and had no idea what to do when it comes to selling a house. She was very respectful of my situation and guided me thru the whole process. She came in and put things in place and guided me on how to showcase my home for a future buyer. She always called me back after receiving feed back from other realtors and we discussed the reviews whether they were good or bad and she always had ideas to make it better. At times when I became discouraged, she was always there to keep me positive and motivated that the right buyer would come along and they did! My house sold!! She is a top notch realtor. Someone that you can feel very relaxed and comfortable with. I would refer her to anyone that needs a straight up and honest realtor and someone that will get the job done! You will need to call Anne Marie. – Wendae Grey

“Thank you so much for helping us find a home. Finding a home that has everything on the wish list is never easy. But despite all the challenges you took great care and put in a lot of effort to ensure most of the wishes were satisfied. You guided us through this with lots of patience and dedication. We had schedule constraints but you were more than happy to work around our timing issues. Your effort and dedication eventually paid off heavily because you helped us find a home that is perfect for our family. Thank you so much for the support and we are glad we chose to work with.” – Victor Watiti

“Anne-Marie just took care of my first ever property sale. I have to say, she definitely went above and beyond what my expectations of what a realtor did to make sure the sale was completed from start to finish. She was friendly, knowledgeable and fought on my behalf to ensure I received every possible dollar from the sale when negotiating with the buyer’s realtor. I will certainly use Anne-Marie again in the future.” – Steven Ryan

“Anne Marie assisted my husband and I with the sale of our old home and the purchase of the new. We sold our house in June of 2013 and were able to move in to our new home on July 2013. When we first hired Anne Marie to help us with the sale of our home we didn’t have any idea as to when is the best time to sell, what we should be asking for or what the market looked like. Anne Marie was able to educate us on all of these items. She was very open and honest with the success of selling in that season and gave us excellent advice on how to put our house on the market with the best possible timing and asking price. We have a family of 6 and being able to sell our house in a speedy manner was important to us – keeping a house pristine with 3 little ones isn’t that easy! Anne Marie gave us solid advice on how to “show” our home – many things which I would never have thought of and I think were definitely contributing factors to the sale of our home. Next up we needed to purchase a new home. Anne Marie worked tirelessly to find us homes to look at in various communities within Calgary. It was not simple to find us just any home as with the size of our family and the needs for our children (schools, community, safety etc.) we wanted to look at several homes. Anne Marie was always available to us and when I would search up a house of interest to view she would provide us with advice as to whether or not we should use our valuable time to investigate. Often there were times where I would find something and Anne Marie had to quickly secure a viewing for us and take us through it – I suspect she dropped a lot of her personal time to help us out! When it came time to negotiating for the house we bought, Anne Marie was amazing. She was on the phone several times back and forth and was willing to bend over backwards to make sure that we got everything we asked for and were certainly fair to the sellers. We would definitely use Anne Marie again if we should ever move. She is reliable, trustworthy and works super hard to make sure her clients are well taken care of.” – Danna Dueck
