What They Said

December 2021

Shelley Soles was my hard working, well researched realtor for both selling my house and buying my beautiful new condo. From start to finish, Shelley was a good listener, realistic, in touch with current markets and skillfully guided me every step of the way.
 
I noticed right away that Shelley is diligent, approaches all situations in a professional, well thought out manner and has incredibly high standards for her work. Shelley’s great networking skills with other realtors and list of reliable resources proved very helpful throughout the process.

To assist in selling my house, Shelley provided the services of a brilliant Stager who offered much guidance and direction on how best to proceed. The end result and the professional photos that Shelley arranged for the website and brochures were outstanding!
 
When we had a slight hiccup in the process of selling my house, Shelley was optimistic, we got right back on track and my house was sold within a few days. I would fully recommend Shelley for all of your realtor needs . You will not be disappointed!

During a difficult time, Shelley was able to guide and assist in the sale of a property. Her knowledge and presentation of the market was great. I really appreciated having her set up the virtual staging, it's amazing! This is the second time I had Shelley as my realtor, first time in 2017. Definitely would hire again.

From my perspective, the sale (and purchase) of my house went very smoothly. When selling, I really enjoyed how thorough you were at the pre-listing phase. I appreciated the professional staging advice, the excellent photography, but most importantly the detailed binder of comparables and market trends data. You gave me time with the data to digest on my own time (which I always greatly appreciate) and then were constantly updating with new information. You definitely went above and beyond with the preparations, and then also during the showing phase. I was impressed by your work ethic and your rapid response time to messages and requests, and how your relayed feedback from those who viewed my house. I have no complaints with your work and would highly recommend you (and already have) to my friends in and around Calgary. Thanks again for making this stressful period, selling my first home, more manageable – especially during a pandemic.

We are so very grateful that we had Shelley as our real estate agent. We sold our previous home and needed to find a new home in a very short time frame which added significant pressure to our new home search. We managed to find our new home in Cochrane within two days and without Shelley this would not have been possible. Shelley personifies professionalism. Shelley is understanding and honest in her approach and we could not have felt more comfortable knowing that we had Shelley as our agent. Shelley was extremely helpful in helping us find a local lawyer since we were from out of town and made the whole process of buying our new home to be very seamless. We would not think twice about having Shelley as our real estate agent in the future and highly recommend her.

My husband and I began working with Shelley at the start of 2020 to help us achieve some of our lofty real estate goals.  We were going through a transition in our lives and decided to sell our investment property, the condo we were living in, and purchase a new house to settle into. 

 Shelley first listed our investment property just before the impacts of COVID-19 hit.  She was able to quickly pivot her real-estate style, implement safety precautions, and ensure that we could still safely sell our place.  These were not easy times to do showings, open houses, etc. and the market was in turmoil around us, but she was able to find us a buyer and complete a great sale! 

After this, she was able to successfully sell our condo in the Calgary Beltline during the height of COVID, again all the time keeping us safe and comfortable with the process.  Lastly, she was able to work with a builder to get through their very first sale (lots of extra time and effort) to get us into our dream home. 

We couldn't have been happier with the communication, drive and all-around great attitude that Shelley brings to real estate sales.  Would not hesitate for a moment to work with her again or recommend her to friends/family.

We’ve worked with Shelley five times in the last nine years: buying a condo, selling that condo, buying our current home, and selling two properties as the executor of an estate, and we could not be happier with the service she provides. She is thorough, professional and practical. She provides a wealth of information, lays out your options, provides advice based on her knowledge and experience – but lets you make the decision. We’ve never felt pushed. We’ve always felt supported. And on top of all of this, she’s a genuinely nice person. Shelley Soles is our realtor for life.

I enjoyed Shelley’s professionalism. Her attention to details, prompt responses, knowledge of resources and coordination services of trades people are what make her stand out among other realtors. She is understanding and honest in her approach and always ready to help. I would definitely recommend her to my family and friends.

After trying to sell our house ourselves unsuccessfully, we knew we needed to switch things up. The first thing we did was hire a stager, and she helped us present our house better than before. She recommended we talk to Shelley, and boy, are we glad we did!
 
We felt a connection with Shelley from the first meeting. She was friendly, knowledgeable, approachable and highly organized. A clear plan of action was presented and we could not agree more, that this was the route we were going to take.
 
Selling a house is a highly emotional issue, and until you are in the process, you don't really realize it. Shelley was able to take some of that stress away, her approach always felt supportive, yet professional, and we felt taken care of. Every step of the way was always clearly communicated, no guessing around.
 
When a bid came through, same thing, clear communication, how we wanted to proceed. After our acceptance of the bid, her communication between us and the lawyer’s office was always quick, friendly and efficient, which made the entire sales process as pain free as possible.
 
We would recommend Shelley to everyone who is in need of Realtor services, you will not regret it. It feels like we have gained a friend forever!

What can I say but, WOW, did Shelley ever come through for us! She was incredibly professional, thorough, honest, patient, sensible, detail-oriented, knowledgable—pretty much everything you’d want in a realtor—in addition to being upbeat and supportive in sometimes trying times. (Like, THE NIGHT BEFORE the home inspection, after nine years with absolutely NOTHING wrong with our house, suddenly … water in the basement! Ugh! But Shelley kept her cool—I feel like she’s seen it all!—and the issue was just dealt with competently, openly, and honestly.) 

I felt completely confident in her abilities and felt that she represented our property very well (and also my mother’s property, which sold in less than a day), and was satisfied with the outcome.

I felt that nothing was too much trouble (she hosted several open houses for us, handled countless showings, made lovely, glossy brochures—whatever was necessary) and made sure that everything was done properly and expertly. Selling a house is never a stress-free experience, but it sure helps to have a realtor who is dependable and a super-experienced problem-solver. I would definitely recommend Shelley, without hesitation!

Hello Shelley - thank you so much for your professionalism and diligence in helping me to sell my condo in a very short period of time in this challenging Calgary real estate market. Without a doubt your keen eye on staging helped to present the condo in its best light.  Your guidance as we navigated the negotiation while I was on another continent (!) was most appreciated. I have now used you for both purchasing and selling and your calm demeanour is a godsend.  I valued your advice and your guidance throughout both sides of a real estate transaction. You are a consummate professional who I would use again in a heartbeat.  Thanks again!

We first met Shelley in 2013 when we were planning to downsize from our home to a condo. Even though it took us several years to put our plans in place, Shelley patiently provided us with sound advice and guidance every step of the way.
 
From the marketing details to the completion of the real estate documents we were very well informed of the process. Shelley provided key contacts which made our move worry free. We absolutely love our new condo and would highly recommend Shelley.

August 2017

We recently needed to sell my late aunt’s home in Calgary as part of settling her estate. However, because we live in Ontario, we were unfamiliar with the real estate market including agents. Based on a list of agents my aunt’s step-son provided us, and some Internet searches, we decided to meet with Shelley Soles at the property and discuss her ideas and plan for the sale. Once the plans and preparations were completed, the house was listed and sold within 24 hours at the agreed upon price!

This quick sale is a tribute to Shelley's professionalism and can-do attitude! We won’t hesitate to recommend this superior agent to anyone buying or selling real estate in the Calgary area.

Thanks Shelley for selling our latest home in one week! We have worked with Shelley buying and selling (x2), and she is truly a professional. She is an excellent realtor, but most importantly she cares about you as people, not just a client.
 
 Shelley provides the personal touch. Constantly communicating, consulting, and encouraging various ideas…and solutions. She worked with us on the pricing strategy and it certainly paid off, selling in a week, ahead of another place, 2 doors down. And coupled that with sound staging ideas.
 
We highly recommend Shelley! She’s a great friend to have…and simply put  - you can trust her to look after you.

We have had the distinct pleasure of having Shelley act on our behalf on three separate real estate transactions, both sales and a purchase. In addition, she has also assisted one of our family members in finding the perfect house for he and his fiancée. 

We are repeat clients of Shelley's as she has proven to be an outstanding professional with the attention to detail that we have found lacking in so many others. She also takes the time to ensure that every detail is covered and that you have a complete understanding of the process. It isn't everyday that you find an agent that a husband and wife both agree upon and we both agree that Shelley communicates and relates well with each of us.


We have used numerous real estate professionals prior to meeting Shelley and we can honestly say that she is by far the best that we have ever worked with.

April 2015

We were introduced to Shelley by our Ontario realtor, when my career took me to Calgary, AB. Right away, we could tell the fit was great. Shelley really understood our needs and was instrumental in us finding our dream home in an entirely new province for us. 

Unfortunately, not even two years after moving in, we had to leave Alberta to return to Ontario. The sale of our home went very smoothly, especially given the market freezing up due to the drop in oil prices, thanks to Shelley's professional skills. She arrived very well prepared at our initial sale meeting, and the quality of her marketing pieces was outstanding.

Overall, purchasing and selling with Shelley has been a great experience and thus, we highly recommend her services.

We wish to say that we were very pleased with the work done by Shelley Soles on our behalf.  She was very knowledgeable about all the requirements for listing a condo, and was particularly prepared to work with seniors.

We found her to be well prepared for meetings, very thorough in preparing documents, and clear in explaining each step of the process. She provided a well researched history of sales and listings in our building, and answered all our questions clearly and patiently.

We appreciated the quality of the photographs taken of our condo, and the brochures prepared for potential buyers when they viewed the condo.
      
Her suggestions to us in preparing the condo for sale, were very helpful, and we found her to be ethical and to have sound judgment in advising us.

Shelley was a great help to us in selling our condo. She was very efficient and went above and beyond the call of duty in making sure that the unit was readied for sale and then sold for more then what we had initially expected to realize.

Don & Joan G.  (Sellers)


When we started the process of looking for our first home, the most important qualities we were looking for in a Realtor were commitment and efficiency.  Someone who could find us the exact home we were looking for, and would stick with us no matter how long it took.  Shelley’s commitment was evident almost immediately, giving us many of her evenings and several weekends to look at homes.

It seemed a near impossible task to find our first home in the hottest market in the country with house values rising literally thousands of dollars per week, but Shelley helped us do just that.  After being outbid on what we thought was the perfect place, her enthusiasm was a reminder that our dream home was still out there somewhere. 

Because the market was such that you had to make an offer on a home quickly, she was getting us in to see homes literally a few hours after they went on the market.  It was because of this perseverance and dedication that we were able to put an offer on our first home very quickly.  Thanks again for helping us find not just a house, but a home!

Suzanne & Sal F. (Buyers)


Shelley performed a fabulous job in the selling of our mother's condo. She is very patient, and willing to put the time and effort into selling a home, that is needed to get the job done, and done right.
