Michelle is one of the nicest people I know. She was very accommodating and patient with all my questions. She always told me the truth and made sure I understood everything along the way.

Michelle is the best realtor I have ever had the pleasure of selling a house with. She is very knowledgeable, honest, and sincere. She even helped us with boxes for our move. If I ever have a need to sell again, there is no one I would turn to except for Michelle.

I am writing in enthusiastic support of Christa Aleman, our real-estate agent. My husband and I met Christa when she brought buyers to our home that we were selling independently. Christa distinguished herself by being professional, respectful, and willing to ensure we, the sellers and her clients were confident and pleased to close the deal.
Once our home sold, we were left feeling impressed with how Christa conducted business. We asked her to help us find an acreage. Christa is able to adapt and be proficient in her field of real estate whether it is working with buyers or sellers in town or in the country in any market. She was eager to learn all about the properties we were looking at to ensure we were well informed when we arrived. She was willing to think outside the box to help us find what we wanted. We found our dream property thanks to all of Christa’s hard work.
Christa has the tenacity to purse every option on behalf of her clients. She would go out of her way to meet with us, answer any questions, and send us documentation needed day or night, anytime of the week.
Not only does she always maintain the utmost professionalism, she is personable, sincere and always puts her own flare on things. – T. & S.
I had shopped around for an agent for over a year, with no success. Finally, I called the number on the “For Sale” sign and got Hayley on the other end of the phone. When she answered, I immediately said to her “Well it sounds like somebody’s having a good day!” to which she replied “I am having a FANTASTIC day!” This enthusiasm didn’t dwindle even a little bit, through my experience with Hayley. She listened carefully to my high demands, and matched me up with the right home in less than 2 weeks. She is patient, knowledgeable, understanding, connected. You can tell that she treats every client and customer with the same respect. She is an admirable person that I look forward to doing business with again. When it came time to close the deal, and we had run into setbacks. Hayley stopped at nothing to ensure that things went as smoothly as possible for not only me, but the seller as well. She even offered to help move and hired a cleaner to go to the property! Unbelievable! I don’t often recommend – but Hayley comes with VERY high recommendations from me. – Jessica W.
House is sold! You need a great realtor, go to Katelyn Haffner. She had mine sold in under two weeks. Good job Katelyn! – Terry Nichol
Hello Katelyn, Working with you was a pleasure and I feel you are a real professional. You get back to me fast, your follow up is good and you are often available to communicate. Also, you have a good grasp of the real estate market and you understand the dynamics during the negotiation process. I would recommend you to anybody who is looking to buy or sell a house as you are simply the best. Thank you for selling my four units- you did more than just a good job. – Bas Zohlandt
Hi Katelyn, I thought you were very professional and knowledgeable. You were also accessible which really helped. I would definitely recommend you. – Donna Jaques
“We were very happy to work with Katelyn! We looked at a lot of houses in a 2 day period and finally found the perfect home. We moved from Manitoba so time was of the essence. She picked us up and toured us around the area and to the homes which was nice. She helped with finding lawyers, insurance and other miscellaneous items. Very responsive and no pressure attitude. Thanks Katelyn! It was great working with you and I would recommend you to others.” – Scott and Claudia Penner
Looking for a house in the Calgary area? Call our wonderful friend Katelyn Haffner! Steph and I could not be happier with the fabulous service she provided us! – Chris LeBlanc (Chris LeBlanc Band) & Steph Hansen
Superior customer service doesn’t even begin to describe what Katelyn Haffner did for us when we made our latest purchase. We had many questions and concerns when looking for a piece of land to build our next home. Being new to the acreage life around Strathmore, we had many questions and wanted answers before making the big purchase. For every question we had, Katelyn went out of her way to get precise, accurate answers and fast! I would not only recommend her for helping you in purchasing a new home but I will almost definitely be using her to sell any properties we may sell in the future. I look forward to working with such a goal orientated individual such as Katelyn! Awesome job and Thank you once again. – Bryan and Dallas Sandmaier
My wife and I had shown an interest in a certain style of property, Michelle continued to search and send us updates often, until we found our dream, she worked day and night for us thru all stresses and temper sessions, we are now very happy in our place and cannot imagine doing with any other agent, Wow, what a good friend. – Carman and Dianne P
What a wonderful service Michelle provides for house hunters and prospective house buyers. Michelle is there for you from start to finish, with her great personality and dynamism, all geared to client satisfaction. We asked Michelle to find some homes that might be suitable for us to view, and amongst them was the one that we bought. Thanks to Michelle, we are now settled in the home that we wanted. – Lizzie and Lucy T
HOME PROPERTIES BUYERS SELLERS Last fall Michelle showed me two condominiums and patiently waited for me to make a decision. She kept in touch with me for several months but never pressured me. In the new year I finally decided it was the move I wanted to make. Since I was living in Sherwood Park, there were a lot of faxing and phone calls before the deal was finalized but Michelle guided and helped me all the way, many times putting my needs ahead of her own social and community life. Not only did she help in the buying details but since I was new to the area and did not know trades people etc. she gave me several recommendations which turned out to be excellent and relieved me of a lot of stress. I would definitely recommend Michelle to anyone buying or selling property. She is tireless and extremely helpful with integrity that is hard to find. We have bought and sold several homes and dealt with many realtors in the past. This gives me the confidence to say that Michelle comes highly recommended by us. She is patient, and knowledgeable about all aspects of a home transaction. We were particularly impressed with her knowledge of building codes and requirements. As well, her attention to helping us meet all obligations and timelines up until possession were greatly appreciated. – Corrine & Daryl B
She was our realtor for both the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new one. Not only was she relentless, Michelle was available. She provided a level of personal service that is so often missing from the client experience these days. She checked in, she followed up, she answered questions and she truly worked on our behalf. – Jamie & Tyson K
Our house buying experience suddenly became a very positive one the moment we called Michelle.
Earlier this year our family moved to Chestermere from Calgary south east. Initially we looked at a few listings in Chestermere and we were approached by several agents some of them that never answered the phone and didn’t return calls in time. One day we came across a house listed by Michelle and called her up to schedule a showing. Our house buying experience suddenly became a very positive one the moment we called Michelle. She was very understanding and willing to find us a property that suited our needs. Michelle showed us several homes that were in our budget and not once we felt pressured to make a decision. She openly shared any negatives that she discovered during our search that a home buyer might have overlooked. Michelle worked very diligently to find the right home for us and to our satisfaction she closed the deal on our terms! After we purchased the home Michelle was very helpful in answering our questions about the local community of Chestermere. We will surely hire Michelle for our future real estate needs . We strongly recommend that you hire Michelle to make your home buying experience pleasant and wonderful. – Brent & Cindy S
HOME PROPERTIES BUYERS SELLERS BLOG I don’t even think we can put our experience with Michelle Eldjarnson into words. As first time home buyers we were nervous, naive, and were just unaware of what to ask or what to look for. Michelle set our minds at ease. She was there every step of the way! She was so helpful in making our first time easy and understandable. She went out of her way for us, I remember our deal being done at like 9 at night! Even after our deal was done she still went out of her way to ensure we had what we needed or directed us into the right direction to get what we needed. In the end I would use her again in a heartbeat and have recommended her to many of our friends. Thank you Michelle!! – Ben & Stevie Blanchard
Thank-you Michelle! Michelle is knowledgeable, honest, and extremely helpful. She treated our property as if it was her own. – Larry Osaka

In April of 2016 we chose real estate rep, Hayley Poirier, to sell our home with us, and we were very pleased with her services. It was a quick and easy process with Hayley and her team.

You definitely made the process of selling our home as stress free as possible. – L. Hosick-Lahey and M. Lahey
Hayley is a very personable and professional realtor. She knows her real estate, very well. We had her as both a buying and selling realtor in order to relocate to Strathmore.

She only showed us the homes that we asked to see and most importantly, she gets the job done, with satisfaction AND happy clients, in the end!! Thanks, Hayley, for a job well done!! – B. and L. Brandon
Working with Hayley was really great as a first time home buyer. She was knowledgeable and always looked out for my best interests. She listened to what was on my wish list, and only showed me homes that fit. I also appreciated how flexible Hayley was with my schedule, and she always made it work. When I ended up buying a new build, she supported me throughout the entire process. I recommend Hayley to anyone looking for a new home. – Lindsay H
Thank you to Hayley and your team for the Professional way you handled the sale of our house. You took time to explain every step in the process of the sale, before and after.

I would highly recommend your services to anyone who is selling their home. – Anneke and Douglas F
As first-time homebuyers and with a little one on the way, we could not have had a better experience in finding a house that fit our growing family, life-style, and budget.

She walked us through the process, accommodated our needs, and most importantly followed our pace. We love our home but if we are ever looking for what’s on the market in the future, we will absolutely deal with Hayley again. – M. and B. Ostermann-Thompson

Hayley was our agent for the purchase of a house in Strathmore. She did an excellent job of representing ourselves and provided us with local meaningful information to assist us in this out of province purchase. She was conscientious, understanding and quick to get the various tasks completed. – Cheryl and Eric B

Hayley was great to have as our Realtor. We put our house up for sale just as housing prices were beginning to drop last year. There were also a lot of houses for sale in Hussar, which was unusual. Hayley is so knowledgeable of our area; with comparables, trends, expectations. She was able to give us expert advice during a bad “seller” market. We would definitely use her services again and would recommend her to others in the area. – Jill C. and Royce B
My Wife and I recently purchased a property in Strathmore AB and were privileged to have Hayley Poirier act as our Realtor. Having lived in Canada for less than 2 years following immigration from the UK, it would have been understandable for this process to be a stressful one. Hayley was extremely professional, patient, friendly and cognitive of our situation. Hayley ensured that we were fully informed throughout the purchase, nothing was ever too much trouble and we were proud to have her representing us. I cannot recommend Hayley highly enough. If you are looking for the best Realtor, look no further! – Martin W
Hayley is very professional and knows the area markets and what buyers are looking for. We were quite pleased with the response, communication, feedback and closure of our sale. We would recommend Hayley to anyone. Job well done, from two satisfied sellers. – Frank and Laurie C
Destiny put a beautiful present on our road, and that present was Hayley. She is very patient – she took the time to listen and she was very determined to find the one house in a million that matched perfectly, our expectations. We lived in British Columbia and could only come to Strathmore twice. She worked so hard for us – sending us videos and pictures of houses for us to review, so when we visited in person, we only needed to view the houses that we thought were the best options for us. Hayley is a very kind agent, always available and really professional. We couldn’t ask for better, she is the best! – Nadine and Rock B
We used Hayley 6 months ago to sell our mobile home. She did an excellent job, listened to our requests and offered helpful advice. We were very pleased with her efforts; she sold our house quickly, AND for more than we had originally told her we would like. She was professional, and I have no problem recommending her to anyone in Strathmore or area who would like to sell their house. – Marg and Ron J
Always professional and friendly service that get results. – Neil K
Hayley Poirier was our Realtor involving our purchasing property as well as selling property. Now, here is a young woman that puts 100% into her commitment to her clients. We were sooo pleased with Hayley’s positive and honest input into this very difficult task we requested of her. I would utilize Hayley’s services again in a New York minute. Much appreciated Hayley. – Yvonne and Guy P
We spent a year and a half looking at homes with Hayley before we purchased. What we really appreciated, was how she worked at the speed that was best for us. She didn’t push us when we weren’t ready, but gave advice and her expertise on different homes and communities along the way. She is honest and friendly, and it was a pleasure having her help us in this journey of home buying! – Rhys and Janelle
I met Hayley Poirier when I made an appointment to view a property to purchase. When I arrived for the viewing it was like meeting with an old friend. During our tour, she took notes of my queries and was quick at getting the answers to me. Our second meeting went even better as I had a few more queries and Hayley had the answers for me immediately. It was during this meeting that I decided to jump in and purchase. Hayley set me up with a mortgage lender and kept me informed every step of the way. When everything was approved, she also recommended the law firms. I found Hayley to be extremely knowledgeable in her field as well as being very helpful and friendly. This was definitely my most positive experience at purchasing a home and I highly recommend calling Haley Poirier for all your Real Estate needs. – Linda MacKenzie
Hayley Poirier from the Real Estate Reps did an absolutely amazing job helping us with both selling our residence and buying our new condo last year. Hayley made sure the house was staged perfectly and I had 2 full price offers within a week of listing. She also was our agent when we originally bought the house and also sold our previous townhouse within days of listing the property. I highly recommend engaging Hayley Poirier as your real estate agent!! Maggie Johnson (extremely satisfied client!!) – Maggie Johnson
I have recommended Carey. I really enjoyed our brief experience working frantically to buy me a home. I’m grateful for her honesty, sharing, accessibility, patience, and truly compassionate nature. It was a difficult time for me and you made it easier. – Margo LePage

I used Hayley to purchase my home this past summer, and I have nothing but great things to say about the experience! She came highly recommended from a family member, and with very good reason. Hayley was professional, super knowledgeable, prompt with all communication and just generally amazing to deal with!! I am sure that I will use her again in the future, and I would absolutely recommend her and her team to anyone. Thanks for helping me find my first house Hayley! I’m so happy with it!! – Laura Webber
I have known Hayley for many years, as a co-worker, an agent and a friend. She stands out amongst the crowd for her genuine concern for the people in her life. Be it a client, friend or the person in the store serving her. Hayley is a team builder, she has the tools and knowledge to get people what they really want. The most important thing they will ever purchase in their lives, is their home. Hayley is the one I would trust with mine and my families real estate needs. I am sure as part of the Real Estate Reps team, she will give you the best care and attention. Always, pleasant, always on time and organized with the viewings that suite you. She listens to what you want, not what she wants to sell you. Really what you want for your family. – Cathy Lindon
It has been an absolute pleasure to have worked with Hayley on numerous occasions over the past 6 years. With her professional work ethic, positive attitude and her friendly and courteous demeanor when dealing with both clients and colleagues she exemplifies the highest of standards in our industry. As a very genuine and dependable person who takes both her client’s wants/needs and financial goals to heart, I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home. – Cory Lewis
Hayley and Lynn are an amazing team of Real Estate professionals! We could not have pulled off our tight closing date without them! Communication was fantastic and prompt! We highly recommend them, and we will definitely be coming back in the future! Great Job! – Chelsea Sumbler
I usually steer clear of realtors and try to sell property myself. However,I found her to be delightful, nothing was too much trouble. I never found asking her to come to me, instead of me dropping things to her office, was the slightest issue, she was most obliging. Michelle helped to sell 2 of my properties in the same month. She was constantly in communication and went above and beyond to make sure the properties were presentable for showings, even mopping and dusting . In addition Michelle helped to negotiate a close to list price for both properties, really working hard to achieve this. I found her to be very easygoing, yet a dynamic force, with no pressure on me, she was in tune with my needs. I would highly recommend Michelle to anyone contemplating any Real Estate transaction.. – Elaine S
Michelle made our home selling a breeze. Not only is she understanding of the family dynamic, she truly understood our needs. Her patience (multiple questions we had) and excellent communication skills made the whole process bearable as house selling can be a huge stress in a person’s life. Our house was professionally marketed and sold with a day of listing. How can you ask for better results. To this day Michelle has maintained a friend of our family and we will have no hesitation in using Michelle for our buying and/or selling needs in the future. – Troy & Susan
Michelle was always available for both us, the seller, as well as the potential buyers. She got us top dollar for our home, which in the current economy is not an easy task. Michelle is also a very positive upbeat person with a lot of knowledge about Chestermere and surrounding areas. We would certainly use Michelle again and have recommended her to our friends and family. – Nancy Gautreau
Michelle has sold 3 houses for us and helped us buy 3 houses, she is extremely helpful, thorough and works hard promoting listings and gathering important information and very thorough, a very hard worker who is also very personable. I love working with Michelle and recommend her if you are looking at buying or selling your house. – Jackie Emro

To all potential real estate buyers and sellers,
We are very pleased to recommend Christa Aleman to anyone seeking a driven, personable realtor who is eager to provide favorable results.
We experienced Christa’s professionalism recently as both a seller and a buyer. Her vibrance combined with a no pressure and sophisticated approach put us at ease upon our initial meeting with Christa. We were impressed with her knowledge of the current rural and municipal property values. Her personality and enthusiasm are certain to positively distinguish her from her peers. We genuinely enjoyed our discussions with Christa and found her feedback and advice to be very helpful in our decision making process. Her presence was very comforting in moments that can be quite stressful, as she would often encourage us to take as much time as we needed and ensure that we were informed every step of the way. Christa displayed effective communication skills with us throughout this process and promptly responded to any questions or inquiries we had. The honest, open insight she was able to provide us certainly was appreciated. She strived very diligently to get to know us and to gain a better understanding of what uniquely would capture our best interests.
The more time we spent around Christa, we began to observe other attributes she possessed that reassure clients they have the best realtor on the task. The etiquette and respect she displayed with all properties and people amid our journey were traits we valued in a realtor. She balances a demanding work load with admirable determination. We found Christa to always be punctual with appointments and very accommodating when it came to scheduling our requests. Providing the services of a professional stager and cleaner were a couple examples of the inclusive and beneficial resources that Christa offered to optimize our listing.
Rest assured that when someone of Christa Aleman’s integrity and expertise is representing your interests, you are in great hands. – Marsha and Kelly
