Albert Mah helped us
Recent: Hounsfield Heights/briar Hill, Calgary, AB
I recently decided to retire and relocate from Winnipeg to Calgary where my daughter and her family live. My daughter recommended Albert Mah as a relator as he had been very helpful when she and her husband purchased their first home. I contacted Albert in the late fall and provided him with an idea as to what I was looking for and by this time, I had decided on purchasing a condominium, a location, and some of the amenities I wanted. Over the next month or so, Albert watched the market and arranged a list of condos matching the criteria I had given him. When I came out to Calgary to visit over Christmas we met, reviewed the list, and selected seven to investigate further. My daughter and I spent the better part of a day visiting and looking at these seven units with Albert. Although none of the ones we saw were quite right, Albert felt he had a better idea as to what I was looking for and agreed to continue watching and advise me if anything suitable came up. In February Albert notified me that a condo matching what I was looking for had just been advertised so he and my daughter went to look and within two days our offer to purchase was accepted and I now own that condo and am very happy with it.
As a realtor, Albert was invaluable to me. He clearly understood the housing market at the time, and his advice on drawing up the offer to purchase and the time line we should use were correct and lead to quick acceptance by the seller. COVID made travel awkward and because I was in another province there were some unusual challenges. He was able to help me with finding a law firm in Calgary and facilitating communications between the property management company and myself. He also helped to set up payment of my property taxes. Overall, Albert made the entire process go smoothly and very promptly took care of the few bumps that turned up on the way. Based on my experience, I would highly recommend him or any of his colleagues at Connect Real Estate Group as knowledgeable, personable, and very competent realtors.
