Testimonials

~Sophie B

"I recently embarked on the mission of buying my first home and was thrilled to have Alison as my real estate agent. She worked day and night (mostly night) to answer my endless questions about the process. Alison really works hard to find what you’re looking for and for YOUR best interest. I was out of the country on holidays while I was putting a purchase offer through and was still able to complete the process fast and effectively thanks to Alison! I highly recommend Alison if you’re buying or selling, she was truly the best!"

"I would highly recommend Alison to all my friends & family for the purchase or sale of their home. She is professional, very knowledgable & so kind. I couldn’t believe how responsive she was to all of our requests & questions, & she knew far more than we ever hoped to about the process of selling a home. I thought selling the house would be the most stressful part of the process, but Alison was incredible & we are very happy with the results. I would absolutely work with her again, she truly is the best! Thank you so much Alison, for making the stressful time so much easier. Your guidance was phenomenal. Looking forward to working with you again one day."

""We listed our home here in Okotoks with Alison and approx. 2 months later we sold. She was very easy to work with and we were very pleased with the results! If we needed a realtor in the future we would have no hesitation in giving Alison our business. We would definitely recommended her to family and friends."

Jordan and Heather Tanner

"Alison is a powerful combination of what you hope to find in a realtor. She is patient, persistent and listened carefully to what was really important to us in our home purchase - not to mention she has an energy and optimism that is infectious which is a big plus when you hit the inevitable low points of a home search. You will be well served in hiring Alison for your next home purchase in Okotoks or High RIver (she knows both towns very well."

Greg Kleemair

"Alison Marshall was a pleasure to deal with. As a first time home buyer she was able to help advise the process without making it over complicated. She was always prompt for appointments and made my purchase a smooth, quick process. Alison is very professional in her dealings both with the client and negotiating with the sellers realtor. I would have no hesitation in using Alison again for another home purchase."

Neil & Debra Baker

"If you want an honest hard working Realtor with integrity then you need look no further than Alison Marshall. In 2013 Alison gave a valuation of our property & explained how she would market it. However, we decided to go with another realtor who had a different strategy in attempting to get the maximum price for the property; we had lots of viewings but no offers so after a number of frustrating months we reluctantly took our property off the market. Despite not getting the listing Alison remained friendly & kept in touch both during & after our house was on the market - this left a lasting impression upon us. In the Spring of 2016, we listed our property again but this time used Alison as our Realtor; our strategy this time was to be both realistic & aggressive on the price in the current deflated market. Thanks to Alison the house was sold within the first week of going on the market. Alison then helped us find another home that we eventually found after viewing over 30 properties. Alison was always available to answer any questions & went out of her way in helping us view properties & negotiate the sale price. Moving home is one of the most stressful tasks anyone faces but with Alison as our Realtor we always felt she had our best interests at heart & was able to deflect a lot of the "moving home stress". She is truly a 5 star Realtor & someone of whom we would personally recommend every time. "

Barb & Jarrod Grant

"Alison was a delight to have met and to have worked with. She is honest, trustworthy and very professional. She clearly knows how to attract the right buyer to the right house as we received the offer within a week of our house being listed! Our house sold quickly as she thought it would and within the price range she quoted. The selling process can be stressful but Alison was there every step of the way with us and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her to anyone who is looking for a new house or wanting to sell their current home!!Thank you again, Alison!!"

Sarah Brown

"Words cannot describe how lucky we were to work with Alison Marshall. I would highly recommend her to everyone. We were first time buyers and were guided the whole way through this crazy process with such care and professionalism. Alison understood the importance of getting us our first house and followed up on ALL angles possible to ensure that we would be able to attain our new home. She not only got us our dream home, but she made the process seem like a piece of cake. She kept us informed, educated us on the process, and continued to follow up with us. I can't thank her enough. I agree with everyone else who has given Alison Marshall five stars. She gives 110%. She is all about integrity and excellence. Extremely detailed, patient, and on top of all this, she is such a kind soul. I really can't imagine getting any better service than this. If you want to be part of a winning team, you can with Alison! She is undeniably the BEST at what she does."

Erin & Kyle

"We were referred by our Real Estate Agent to Alison when we were looking for an acreage specialist this past summer. Alison was fantastic! She is very knowledgeable, patient and responsive. We were “city kids” looking to move to the country and she helped us navigate all that that entails, from driving distance, well recovery rates, pumps, septic etc. It was a very easy process and her sense of humour made it extremely enjoyable! She was always there to answer my questions (no matter how crazy) and her online document signing software made it SO easy to get everything done when it came time to go under contract. She helped us find our PERFECT acreage and we can’t thank her enough. Love you Alison!"

Eva and Lorenzo Taylor

"It has been a wonderful experience working with Allison . When the market was slow her positive attitude,long hours and hard work is what keep people interested in our home. I would recommend her to anyone."

Manashri & Parth

"Buying a first house is always an exciting and scary experience. For Parth and I, it was a dream come true. We had been watching a lot of HGTV lately and Alison could make that out in our first meet. Hahaha! The first time we met Alison at our rented home. She is very friendly and a very good listener. We told her our wish list and she told me she would do her best. The house lists that she sent us everyday was very relevant and she was very prompt in arranging the viewings. She would adjust to our timings and would give her personal views, when we looked confused. She always says you will know when it's going to be THE house. And she was so right. Her help in weighing pros and cons of a particular house, made us decide quicker. For new and first time home owners like us this is really important. We would recommend Alison to anyone who is looking for a new home. You will kind of start missing going out on viewings, she is that awesome!"

Derek and Christina Mazur

"We decided to use Alison Marshall as our realtor after hearing how great she was from few friends who had dealt with her in the past. We chatted with a few agents before finally choosing Alison. We found Alison to be the most personable and helpful in addressing our pre-listing questions and concerns. She was diligent when ever we called, very knowledgable of the Okotoks market and she was able to intelligently answer all of questions. Alison helped to make sure our furniture was staged well and took beautiful pictures of the home herself. Alison went the extra mile and helped make the sale of the home as stress free as possible. With Alison's help, we were able to get our house listed and sold within a few days for very close to our asking price. Alison was wonderful to work with and we would highly recommend her. We look forward to working with her again in the future."

Valerie and Allan Wyatt

"We would highly recommend Alison Marshall as a fantastic realtor 100%! We received a recommendation from a friend that she was the best and she proved that to be so! This was our fourth home sale and on the next buy or sell we wouldn't use anyone else. Alison listed our home for us and we received very knowledgeable service right from her first meeting with us at our home. Alison has incredible photography skills and created her own professional, fabulous, photo portfolio of our home. She exhibited complete professionalism with honest and trustworthy information with no false promises, we were apprised of all news on showings and other realtor feedback after showings in timely manner and felt like we were in the best hands the whole time. Not one sleepless night wondering what was going on behind the scenes. From the time we received the offer on our home till the final transactions were complete she was by our side to answer questions and guide us through each and every single step of the way. Great work, Alison! You will go far in the realty world!!"

Shawn DeGrofft

"Our experience with Alison was excellent. She listened to our needs and recommended properties that we hadn't considered. She responded to our requests almost immediately and was very professional. Without Alison keeping us apprised of changes in the market and being so proactive, we would not have had the opportunity to close on our current home. We feel fortunate that we teamed with Alison in our home search. We would highly recommend Alison to anyone!"

Nicole & Brian

“Alison made the task of selling our home and buying another an extremely easy process, and she made herself available at the drop of a hat. She is down to earth and understood our wants and needs and her knowledge of Okotoks was extremely helpful. We highly recommend Alison Marshall to everyone!”

Shalini and Rob

"What do we hope for most when we decide to sell our home, a realtor who we can trust 100%. Without integrity and honesty, nothing else matters. We were recommended Alison Marshall by a good friend.  Alison put our hearts at peace and minds at rest within about a minute of her coming to our home. She is calm and sincerity personified. She listens and hears what you tell her, she is absolutely interested in you and your home and your hopes and wishes. She makes no false promises at all. She is informed and understands the housing market, she does her homework and makes sure to have an appreciation and knowledge of the area that concerns your home so that she can attract the right potential buyer/s. Alison explained the contract fully and made everything really simple to understand, there was nothing hidden and no details left out, she answered all of our questions, we felt completely assured of her best intentions and had no doubt of her capabilities.

Alison came well prepared and started the photo shoot of our home. What we loved was that Alison saw our home through our eyes, she saw and appreciated exactly what we love about our home and she captured every detail beautifully with each photo. Alison didn't feel the need to play with lighting or overexpose photos to give an unrealistic and false impression. Her photographic abilities are as honest as she is. Before she left our home, Alison gave us a promise to get the write up done that evening and even get our home listed too. Alison kept her promise, that simple. When we read her write up of our home it brought tears to my eyes, she got it, she described every endearing feature and every positive to perfection, she was honest and informative and her write up and her photos made us quite certain that she was the very best realtor we could have chosen. Within 24 hrs our lovely home was sold! Alison achieved an amazing result. Alison is meticulous with detail, she is available for her clients whatever the time, whatever the questions or queries, nothing is too much trouble. Alison makes a promise to take care of you and that is exactly what she does. We would recommend Alison Marshall in a heartbeat, if only other realtors would work with the same honesty, integrity and passion that she does, the process of home selling and buying would never hold fear or disappointment for anyone ever again. Great job Alison, thank you so very much."

Dave and Stacey

"When deciding to sell our property that we have raised our kids, called home and put love and work into, we wanted the best person to list it. We met Alison and did not interview anyone else or look back. Alison was very dedicated to helping us sell our home and went above and beyond to do so. She was available to answer all of our questions, and trust me there were a lot. :) Not only did Alison sell our house in a timely manner, she spent hours helping us find our new forever home. She knows Okotoks and surrounding areas very well and is knowledgeable and up to date with the current market. If listing or buying don't hesitate to call Alison if you are looking for an open and honest, knowledgeable, trustworthy, personable, hardworking REALTOR. We have recommended several people to call Alison and we will continue to do so."

Sarah & Jeremy

"On a whim, we decided to have Alison come over and have a look at our house as we were considering moving. Little did we know what a fantastic person we had just invited into our lives. Many months later, we found our perfect new home and then sold our old house in one day! Alison guided us through it all with knowledge, patience and a great sense of humour! We would not hesitate to highly recommend Alison to anyone!"

Greg & Karen Betker | Main Frame Construction Ltd.

"Alison was referred to us through a business friend.  We are very glad we followed up in using her real estate skills.  Alison worked hard to find a home we could renovate and listened to our needs.  When the time came to sell, Alison brought in an outstanding amount of traffic which led to a top dollar sale. She is very Knowledgeable about Calgary and Okotoks."

Lori & Ty

"We had just moved here to Okotoks and only had a short time to find a new home. Alison helped us find a house that fits our needs and style perfectly. She listened to what we wanted and was very patient to show us every property we thought might fit us. As she was raised in the area, she made sure to not only point out the positives but also made sure to let us know of any of the negatives of the house or various areas in Okotoks. This was very helpful as we did not know Okotoks. She responded to all our emails immediately and helped negotiate a great deal. She then helped us choose a home inspector and recommended some lawyers. We would highly recommend Alison to anyone looking for a REALTOR!"

PS Forgot to add that you knew ALL the Ice Cream shops in town!!

Jill & Scott

"Alison is highly professional and has excellent customer service. She went the extra mile to find out perfect home! Thanks to her excellent advice and negotiating skills we feel we got out home at a great price! Thank you!"


Janine & Jon

My husband and I were being relocated to Houston, Texas. I asked on the Okotoks buy and sell page if anyone had recommendations on a realtor. Alison Marshall's name was recommended by over 75% of all the comments. I had over 30 people respond. We interviewed with Alison and knew we wanted to work with her. Alison knows what she's doing and did a lot to promote our house. The brochures she made were great and the pictures of the house were awesome. I could always get ahold of Alison no matter what time. The best agent that we've used! She fought for us with the sale of our house until possession. She took ownership and responsibility. I would buy and sell again with Alison and will refer her.

Jane and Joe Russell
"We highly recommend Alison Marshall! Alison helped us find a house that fits our needs perfectly. She is open and listens to what you are saying about what YOU want. Alison is very intuitive and steered us away from the wrong decision with grace. We enjoyed her fun personality immensely and whenever we contacted her she responded within minutes...every time! That is so important when you are anxious about buying a new home. She helped us get the best deal we could and instilled in us a sense of total trust."
E. Gottselig
“If you want the most dedicated realtor to help you then you have found the right one!!!! I was referred to Alison through a friend and have not stopped thanking him since. Upon contacting her she was very friendly, she asked what I was looking for and started sending me listings within the hour. Any question that I had she answered and did it super quickly, and you know that wasn’t even the thing that made me never want to use any one else. It was the fact that when we were trying to negotiate the house price and finally had a deal done (at a very good deal I might add) the sellers said that there printer wasn’t working but that they would honour the deal. As one who wants to kinda have things done on paper as some people might just say this until a better offer came Alison turned around from almost being home (in okotoks) and drove all the way back to the far NW Calgary!! Oh I also forgot to mention that this was at 11:30….. PM!!!! After the house deal was complete and signed off this lady continued to impress me by helping us get in to the house to measure rooms for furniture and helped us with any questions we had about the bills, home insurance, property tax and even helped find some home inspectors to come over and inspect the house, which of course she made time to be there for!! Alison has done everything I expected of a realtor and more!!! I have recommended her to every person I know and well if your reading this I recommend her to you. Stop wasting your time finding a realtor and start spending your time looking at a new place!!.”
Ryann & Colin
“Alison Marshall is an amazing realtor. We were selling our house in High River, after the flood, and she was able to get it sold. She put all her effort in keeping the listing out there. We also used her to buy our new house. We had a very short time to find a house and she made herself available anytime of day for phone calls, emails and questions about houses to see. I really enjoyed having her as a realtor as well as I consider her a friend after all was done. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a house.”
John & Marilyn
“Alison made our house buying venture a quick and thoroughly enjoyable experience. She found us exactly what we were looking for within our price range, and even had a few recommendations for a great home inspector and lawyer to help us complete the sale. She asked all the right questions, had endless patience, and most importantly she really listened to us!”
C & S Santoro
“Alison was our realtor for the purchase of our second home in 2013. We tasked her with the challenge of finding us a home that not only worked for our family but also allowed the space and layout we required for our professional lives. She was always happy to work around our schedules and advocated for us in all transactions with the other party. Alison gave expert advice and ensured that we were truly happy with our purchase. There was no pressure to make a quick decision and once a decision was made, she took care of every minute detail so that we could go on with our daily lives. Above all, Alison made the process fun, I actually looked forward to each showing we went to. We will certainly continue to use Alison for all of our real estate needs in the future.”
Tiffany & Nick
“I have to say, we have sold a few homes, and we’ve never quite had a realtor like Alison! We were moving from Grande Prairie and only had one chance to come down and look at some houses. I’m sure we must’ve booked 12 or 13 viewings! We even called her later that evening to see one more, and she had it booked within a half an hour!! When we finally found a house that we liked, my husband had to go by himself, so I trusted him and Alison to make the final decision! And what a perfect decision! I can’t say I’ve ever trusted a realtor enough to make a final decision on a home for me before, but as long as we use Alison, I’d do it again in a heartbeat! You won’t find anyone as caring, and as involved as she is! No one has ever gone the extra mile like she has, an I’m sure no one ever will!!”
Terry & Addie
“What a great experience! Alison is the best realtor we have worked with in selling and buying a home. She sold our condominium in a short period of time. Her commitment and belief in our property was superb and not only met our expectations but succeeded them. She is ethical, diligent, very professional and never gives up. She worked the market thoroughly, by having open houses, advertisements, realtor tours and by getting the property information out there for interested people to see. She was very knowledgeable when it came to the process, the market and how to successfully sell a property. She always kept us informed and we would highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling a property. Thank you Alison for all your efforts on our behalf, much appreciated!”
Josh & Ally
“We had been dreaming about buying our first home for many years and were quite anxious about the process when the time finally came. However, Alison totally made the experience enjoyable and stress free. She was very knowledgeable, pleasant and easy going and really went into every house with our best interests in mind. We couldn’t have asked for a better Realtor and would recommend her to anyone! Thank you so much Alison, for going above and beyond to help us find our dream home!”
Laura Bousquet
Never in our wildest dreams did my husband and I envision our home being sold in a week, with the current market! We would definitely recommend Alison Marshal to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. Her patience and professional advice made the process very easy for us. She was very friendly and knowledgeable and helped us get the price we wanted in a very short period. We couldn’t have asked for a better real estate experience!

Bev and Jim Hunt
To anyone out there wanting to sell their home we would highly recommend Alison, she only had our place listed for a very short period and it SOLD, during that time every weekend she had “Open House”, which got the people out looking…..We lived out of town (this was a rental home), so she would do those little extra’s for us, without even asking, like mowing lawns, adding afew little touches to the house like flowers covers on beds, those little extra’s made a big difference as to how the placed looked, excellent Alison. Alison also made a point of keeping in touch with us often!!!

 

If we ever SOLD again, Alison Marshall from REMAX would definitely be the one we would get!!

Thank you so much Alison you did a fantastic job!!!!!


Stephanie, Mike & Taegan

Kurt McCormick
Alison did a very good job selling my house. She went above and beyond her line of duty. Her strong work ethic shines through in all she takes on. I would highly reccomend her as your realtor. You wont be dissapointed.

J. Wrigley
I have recently had the opportunity to buy a home with much assistance from Alison Marshall.

 

Wow! I don’t buy real estate very often, only once before this, and I am so impressed with how helpful Alison was. She was there, instantly, to answer any questions that I had and moved the process along seamlessly. I don’t know how she finds the answers so quickly but she always returned my calls in a matter of moments, not hours but moments.

Alison is a superstar in the real estate industry, professional, knowledgeable and committed to the client.

I would suggest that if you are buying or selling you won’t have a better experience than with Alison.

C. McEachern
I am quite a seasoned investor and usually do ALL my homework when it comes to whom we choose to run with in any business venture, and thus I find myself here at this testimonial presentation. I have come upon someone who exemplifies integrity and due diligence.

 

Allison Marshall came into our lives by simply following up on a random question I had posed in regards to some property. She instinctively not only answered what I needed but tried to resolve by opening more doors. Because of her demeanor we responded to what she had, and thus came to find a very thorough, hardworking, sincere, and approachable young realtor. Anything we questioned her with, she seemed to know the “right” answer for, and thus we continued to allow her to lead us. Nevertheless, we completed a transaction with her, and can report that it was all that we had hoped and then some. If you are looking for someone who will work for all that they get, and then put in extra hours, I would highly recommend that you give this young, local lady a call. After all we said and done, the flowers came, and she now regularily texts me and says hello, and still ensures that is well. As old as I am, its been a while since I have been this satisified. She scores a perfect10
