If the roses on this card were real, I'd send you a big bouquet.  However they aren't, but my sentiments are and come from my heart for you.

I cannot thank you enough for all you did for me, also over and above your normal, with the sale of my home.  Not just me but the whole family thank you for your huge amount of work on my behalf.  I truly appreciate it all. 

Thanks again for everything.

If you are looking for a really good realtor worth their salt and considering working with Carol Thompson, my advice is; look no further.

To cut a long story short, we tried to sell directly for over a month before, facing an impending time crunch, we turned to Carol. She then helped us get a price for our home, which exceeded our most optimistic estimate by over $20,000, within just three days of us listing with her. And I’m talking net proceeds after Carol’s commissions are factored in.

Among the many specific things I could mention to recommend her, I will single out two illustrations. Her courteous treatment of the other realtors and their clients, particularly the unsuccessful bidders and their agents on the second evening when we had something of bidding war on our hands, was something we really appreciated. I am sure those people will all want to deal with her again. Then, after we found, at the last possible minute, that we needed to leave a bunch of stuff at the house for a week after the new owner already took possession, Carol took care of it for us. Don’t ask me how!

Speaking for my wife and myself we rate Carol a ‘perfect 10’ realtor and if we ever move back to Calgary, I’m certain we wouldn’t think of working with anyone else in a house hunt.

Sincerely,
Ashley Burns

My wife and I recently moved to Calgary from Scotland and decided to start looking for a new home. Luckily for us one of the first homes we chose to view was one of Carol Thompson’s listings. Although we did not buy that particular house we had found ourselves a Realtor. Carol was a great help to us in all aspects of buying a home here in Canada, even though we were clueless about the system here, Carol took the time to explain it all to us and really went way above and beyond what should reasonably be expected from a Realtor. House hunting is a stressful time usually, but Carol’s enthusiasm for her work rubs off on you and you end up looking forward to going to view some potential properties. She really did work tirelessly to help us find a suitable home and put our needs and requirements to the top of the list, although she had a few other clients on the go at the same time, Carol always made time for us whenever we called to arrange some viewings or even just for some advice. I would not hesitate in recommending Carol to anyone who is looking to buy or sell a property as I am confident they would receive the same fantastic service and commitment that we did. A further testament to Carol was when she received a referral from the people that we ended up buying from. They were asked by a neighbor about the Realtor they had used and instead they chose to recommend Carol instead of their own.

We were referred to Carol for her Realtor expertise and feel extremely fortunate to have come across her. We used Carol’s services to sell our house and to purchase a new one in Calgary in 2009.

For starters, we cannot say enough about Carol and how she made our house sale and purchase seamless. Selling and purchasing a new home is stressful, but we were comforted to know that Carol always had our best interests in mind and would professionally handle anything that came our way. She is very knowledgeable and would promptly answer any question or concerns we had.

Carol has exceptional customer service skills and always made us feel as though we were her top priority. We knew that if we ever sent Carol a text or email, that it would be answered in minutes. She consistently went above and beyond in whatever she did for us, from taking us for viewings prior to listing our house, to emptying our cat’s litter box on the day of our open house (because we forgot!). Carol has integrity, is ethical and does things right the first time. She is well connected to a network of professionals, in fact we used two of Carols referrals, one for a house inspector and one for a lawyer, both of whom we also had positive experiences with.

Carol was absolutely fabulous to work the entire time and we cannot say anything negative about our experiences with her. On top of everything, Carol has an overall lovely personality and is fun to work with. We have, and will continue to refer people to Carol’s services in the future as we know they will be well taken care of.


Sincerely,

Mandi Rabeau & Nick Crotty

My wife and I had already bought and moved into our new home. We weren’t comfortable with selling our home while we still living in it, with strangers trooping through at all hours of the day and night. But once we were out, and facing the prospect of two mortgages, we decided the quicker we sold, the better.

We had planned on selling it ourselves, but thought we would check out listing with an agent as well. One of my friends from work gave me Carol’s name and she came out to see us. We had had a figure in mind that we felt we could sell the house for, and were quite surprised (and pleased!) when Carol showed us the house was worth considerably more than we had originally thought. Even taking into account the commissions which would be paid on the sale, we were ahead of the game using her as our agent.

Prior to listing the house, Carol gave us some pointers on minor touch-ups we could do that would help maximize our sales price. During the sales process, Carol was in communication with us on an almost daily basis, giving us feedback from the showings, and updating us on ‘the competition’ in our neighbourhood. It was during an open house she held that the offer we accepted came in.

We were pleased with the work she did for us and wouldn’t hesitate recommending her to any of our friends. Nowadays, everyone seems to have a shortage of time, and listing with Carol gave us the time to do things we enjoy, rather than having to assume to role of real estate agents, trying to sell our most valuable asset.

Sincerely,


Walter Grubisa

My husband John and I bought our first place brand new from the ground up and never had any experience with a Real Estate Agent. After a couple years of bliss in our perfect little apartment, we decided it was time for something bigger. Doing this meant we had to sell our place which meant we needed a Real Estate Agent. What a daunting task and where to begin? My parents had one but he wasn’t a big fan of cats and well the reality was that we had two. None of our close friends had any contacts that they would recommend and finally in talking with colleagues, John’s boss recommended Carol Thompson. I made the phone call not knowing what to ask or where to start, a little apprehensive about the whole situation. All my worries were quickly put to rest by the voice on the other line. An animal lover herself, Carol was very sincere, honest, and knowledgeable about the market and the process of selling and buying. As our new place was not to be ready for quite some time (we decided to build again!) she immediately put our names on her email list, which updated us on when an apartment in our building sold and the details of the sale. This kept us informed on what was happening to the market relative to our apartment and quickly put me at ease. Furthermore, she would drop us an email from time to time to see how things were going with the new place, but never once put any pressure on us.

Finally, almost a full year later, we got our possession date for our new home. I wrote Carol a quick email and let her know we were ready to put our apartment on the market. The night Carol and her partner, Lin Elder, came over was memorable. They helped us rearrange some furniture (I was 7 months pregnant at the time), gave us some helpful hints on removing clutter and purchasing a few home staging items and within a week our first apartment looked like a beautiful little “show home”. We put it on the market in a very competitive market I might add, with over 20 other units for sale in our building alone. A week later after just a few showings we had a very generous offer which turned out to be our sale!

Our experience with Carol and Lin has been absolutely wonderful and my husband and I would recommend them to anyone and certainly will be recommending them to any friends and family who are looking to sell or buy. This entire process of selling your first place, which to me seemed a little off-putting, was in fact the opposite- it was easy, straightforward, quick, and actually kind of fun and I know that having Carol as our Real Estate Agent was certainly a reason why.

If a person is looking at selling/buying a home and wants someone who is knowledgeable about the market, professional and hard working, yet very personable and wonderful at keeping you informed, I would simply say call Carol and within minutes you’ll know that this is the person you need and I mean that in the most sincere way!

Thanks Carol!

I am writing this letter to state that I truly appreciated all the hard work and help I received from Carol Thompson when she acted as my Real Estate Agent. Carol went out of her way to help me find a place that suited my needs as well as sell my house in excess of the asking price. She even helped me clean when I had to show the home!

The sale of my home was a delicate issue and Carol handled any difficult situations both professionally and expediently.

It was truly a pleasure doing business with Carol.

Sincerely,

Colin Hudson

Dear Carol

Thank you so much for all your efforts and hard work during the sale of our house.

Being from the UK and somewhat unsure of the sale procedure in Canada you put our minds at ease. From the time of our first meeting your approach, attitude and professionalism have been second to none.

Getting the price right is always going to be the main factor when selling. We are realists and understand in a buyer's market things are going to be tight. Your work in arranging a "caravan" certainly helped in setting a realistic price.

In what are clearly difficult selling times your idea to stage the house was perfect. Without this staging (and the endless open houses) we would have had very few viewings, subsequently the house would have spent much longer on the market before an offer.

All your efforts and hard work were not just noticed by us, our neighbors had also made comments on your tireless efforts "that girl has worked her butt off' to mention one.

We are aware that this was a team effort so please pass on our thanks to your team.

Thank you once again, you are a credit to 'CENTURY 21”.

Best regards

Kevin Katherine and Farren

Carol Anne Thompson is an extremely helpful, personable, and caring Realtor.

I came to know Carol through a reference from my bank, and am very glad I contacted her. Carol guided me through the entire home-buying process step-by-step. She took care to ensure that I understood all of the activities and requirements involved in home purchases and sales, but also alerted me to good and bad things to watch out for.

Carol was particularly attentive to my requirements in a potential home, and was always glad to provide suggestions that met my desires. She was easy to contact, and returned calls in a very short time.

Beyond her knowledge of real estate, Carol is very pleasant to work with. Scouting homes for hours on end has the potential to become quite tedious, but Carol managed to make it into a fun experience. I would very highly recommend her to anyone looking for a knowledgeable, attentive, and positive Realtor.

Sincerely,
Lisa Tallim
