Testimonials

First night in our new house! Thank you Kari for being SO much more than a Real Estate Agent – you have been a genuine friend and a wonderful ambassador for our incredible new #cochrane life. And we are in love with our  home. Tammy M

I would like to write a letter acknowledging the excellent results that I had using the services of Mark and Kari Ashlee. I contacted Kari, on the recommendation of Stephen Schaff, and she was courteous, and efficient, providing the most current statistics of The Real Estate Market in the area where my home was located. Since I now live out of the province I had to rely on her and her husband Mark to go beyond the call of duty, by fixing a crack in my ceiling and painting it. Then there was the situation when the furnace stopped working and they had to go out of their way to meet the repair man at the house to let him in. They were in constant communication with the lady, who was staging the house, providing whatever assistance she required. The end result; was the house selling within two days of going on the market and my getting very close to the asking price. It doesn’t get any better than that! Thank you Mark and Kari! Marlena VanWalraven

My name is Debbie Weiss and I have been a mortgage agent in Calgary for 9 years. I was introduced to Kari and Mark Ashlee through BNI 1 year ago. We have been doing business with Kari and Mark ever since and I am beyond satisfied and extremely happy with her service. Not only are they very competent, knowledgeable and professional, but they truly care about their clients. Looking for a home is probably the biggest decision most people will make and they makes sure that their clients get the best possible home taking into consideration all their needs. Going above and beyond for their clients is the norm for them. Recently my sister advised me she was selling their home. It was a high end home and I knew they would want the best service for their sale. I had no hesitation in referring Kari and Mark and true to form, they presented an exceptional package which included extensive, pertinent research and with their hard work the home sold in only 11 days. My sister and her husband were extremely pleased and thanked me for the referral. I will continue to recommend Kari and Mark to all my clients that require a realtor whether buying or selling and I know they will be met with great professional service and a warm smile. Your commitment has added value to my business and clients, and for that I would like to thank you for all your hard work! Debbie WeisAMP

We highly recommend the Ashlee team. We had two properties to sell and one to purchase. One of the places we were selling was out of town and had been listed for eight months with another realtor. When we passed the listing to the Ashlee team it had already proven itself to be a difficult sale. They went above and beyond to ensure the sale happened quickly and showed an unparalleled level of commitment. When we were looking for a new place to live they did not push any house on us in any way. Instead they listened to what we wanted and were very patient to be sure we got the perfect place to live. Any realtor can find you a house to live in. A special realtor, or team like Mark and Kari, truly listens to your wants and needs to find you a place that immediately feels like home. Mark and Kari found us not just a house but a home. Two people very close to our family unexpectedly passed away within two weeks of each other and both tragedies occurred when our properties were listed on the market. We were under exceptional stress and I am certain at times we made their job much more difficult. Kari and Mark were exceptionally accommodating and understanding and still succeeded in getting both homes sold quickly. We are especially grateful for their compassion through the process. We can not say enough positive things about them and have no reservations recommending them to all of our friends and family. G.Cummings, DC

I highly recommend the Ashlee Real Estate Team. Dan and Hilary Martin

The opportunity to have Kari and Mark work for us was wonderful. Viewing houses was never an issue, anytime and anywhere in the city, Kari and Mark worked around our schedule. Furthermore, they really helped out in every aspect of selling and buying a home, by providing names to qualified brokers and appraisers. Dean & Carrie

I have known Kari for almost 25 years but this is the first time that I had an opportunity to work with Kari in a professional manner.
Starting this home buying process really made us nervous. Going back and forth of what we wanted, how to get it and where to look was over whelming and scary. Kari and Mark helped us overcome this fear and in the end they made it a very easy process. They addressed our fears and took all the worry away. By having both a male and female perspective, they were easy to relate to with my husband and myself. They were always available and prompt in answering any questions that we may have had. Not only did they recommend a Home Inspector and Lawyer, they were always there to give us feedback and other suggestions for any other situation that arose. In the end, they made our dream home a reality and we are so very appreciative of everything that they did for us. Kari and mark are on top of their game, we would use them again and we would recommend them without a moment’s hesitation. Lynn and Tyler Normey

 

Mark and Kari performed beyond expectations.   From the initial meeting to discuss the marketing strategy of our home to possession of our new home Mark and Kari were fantastic.  As a result our home sold in 28 days for above list price.  The purchase of our new home was seamless.  Mark and Kari were able to negotiate the best possible deal and took charge in resolving discrepancies prior to the move in.  Our experience with Mark and Kari was fantastic and recommended them to family and friends. Regards, Dave and Nadine

We were introduced to Mark and Kari a few years ago as we were needing help selling a condo for a relative. The condo needed a lot of work but with their suggestions and helpful advise the condo did sell, and we were quite happy with the price we got. This past year we decided we needed to downsize our home and again, we called upon Mark and Kari, and were very happy with the results for purchasing our new home as well as selling our existing home. With the Market Analysis that they supplied us, we were able to buy the new home for about $10,000 less than we would have paid without their help. As well, after taking their advice about some minor repairs and staging to make our home more appealing, our house sold in 4 days! We were so happy with their expertise and knowledge that we recommended them to our son a few months ago, and his house sold within a very short time as well. Mark and Kari are professionals, but their kind ways make them feel like they’re your friends who just want to help you get the best deal you can. They always return their calls promptly, they keep you updated on what’s happening with your sale or purchase, and they always make time for you. We would have no problem recommending Mark and Kari again, to any of our friends or family. Claude and Brenda

My wife and I were referred to the Ashlee Real Estate Team in March 2011.  We acquired Mark and Kari’s services to both help us find a new home and then list our current dwelling.  I would like to recommend them to anyone who has expectations of great customer service.  As we have lived in Edgemont for 18 years, we were looking to upgrade while staying in our existing community.  They did an outstanding job of assessing our needs and then helping us to find the perfect home in the area we desired.  In regards to listing our current property, I found them to be very diligent in their assessment of our property value.  Our property sold quickly and within the range that we were expecting.  Whether it was helping us stage our home for sale, or giving us quality advice on our new home purchase, Mark and Kari were professional, informative and quick to help us have a very positive experience. Kelly and Bonnie Temple, Edgemont

“I had the pleasure of working with Kari and Mark Ashlee during most of 2011.  I first contacted them in order to get a market value assessment done on my home, because I was sitting on the fence about selling.  Their advice was honest and realistic, and greatly helped me make my decision.  I then used them to locate my next home.  They were both very patient as I toured many properties, and had very informative comments to assist me in determining my needs.  Finally, during the purchase process, I found their service invaluable.  Their network of professionals was so easy to work with and very efficient.  The Ashlee Real Estate Team truly is a team of experts in their field that made my experience an incredibly positive one.” Krista Women’s Program Coordinator at Alberta Gymnastics Federation
