Brian Macleod's Client Testimonials

I wish there was a Brian Macleod everywhere I went...

Brian is the most professional, knowledgeable, and efficient realtor I’ve had the pleasure to work with. He knew the market, knew exactly what to prepare ahead of time for speedy sales, and how to work with the buyers and the sellers to do what’s best for both parties. I appreciated his transparency, his foresight, and selling our problematic property in a day. He went above and beyond to make everything go smoothly. After having dealt with several realtors in my life, I wish there was a Brian Macleod everywhere I went. As you can see, I couldn’t be happier with Brian’s service. Thanks Brian!

Brian did an amazing job helping us remotely 

Brian did an amazing job helping us remotely sell our rental property in St Albert. He went above and beyond with arranging pre-inspection and advising on pricing appropriately for the state of the house and being super responsive to inquiries, showings and contracts. Sold for full asking in under a week in a falling market. Thank you Brian! You turned what should have been a real headache into a smooth, quick and painless experience.

Brad Ford, Sept 2022

Professional, effective, efficient and kind hearted,

Brian helped sell my place at a very difficult time for me, with what seemed an impossible sale, going up against other units that had not been selling in the complex. Mine was sold within a few weeks. He knows what it takes to get the sale, while maintaining genuine character. He and Sandi were very friendly, helpful and hands on with suggestions, advice and information. I felt supported from day 1. He also does his own great photography and it helped to have his iguide 3D tour on the ad. I chose him because he seemed genuine and honest in comparison to others, I did not want to be represented by someone shady or self serving. He did not disappoint. He handled some rough moments for me during negotiations and did his best to keep me level and reassured. I would recommend him in a heartbeat. Professional, effective, efficient and kind hearted, while balanced with a sharp, firm sales outlook, keeping focused on the end game. Do not hesitate to work with Brian. Thank you both, Brian and Sandi.

Brian was an absolute pleasure to work

Brian was an absolute pleasure to work with as our Realtor. Pictures and 3D tour were the best I have ever seen and he responded to questions very fast. Would recommend him every time.

Leif S - June 2020

was blown away by his gorgeous listing pictures

Brian is a great realtor and a lovely person! He is easy to work with, easy to communicate with and made selling our house as low stress as possible. I was blown away by his gorgeous listing pictures. We had LOTS of showings right away and I think it was largely because of how his pictures captured the house. I would highly recommend Brian to anyone looking to sell their home!

Kate M - June 2020

His response times are bar-none

When my significant other and I decided to purchase our first home we went to Brian due to his five-star rating. We were not disappointed! His response times are bar-none and his knowledge of the minutiae of the whole process and what to watch out for was very beneficial to us. He set us up with some fantastic home inspectors and a lawyer and took a great deal of stress out of the process for us. I would highly recommend Brian for your home purchasing needs!

Edward M - March 2020

There is a reason why this man has an almost perfect 5-star rating *****

Brian was a fantastic person to work with, even though he’s juggling other people too, he replies quickly and is almost always willing to drop everything and tend to your wants and needs, he helped us find a great place and has fought for us to make sure everything went smoothly, he has inspectors and lawyers to recommend so you don’t have to go searching for all these things while already stressing about trying to buy or sell a home, there is a reason why this man has an almost perfect 5-star rating, he is fantastic and you will definitely not regret having him as your realtor! Thank you Brian for the amazing service.

Kyle Y - Feb 2020

He was the first one who actually worked hard to get the job done...*****

Brian was the third Realtor we hired to sell our property. He was the first one who actually worked hard to get the job done. He had a marketing plan, and he wasn't afraid to hold Open Houses to attract interest.  Our other Realtors had told us that Open Houses don't work, Brian proved them wrong. Great Photos too!

Chip Dykstra - Feb 2020

I highly recommend Brian Macleod...*****

I highly recommend Brian Macleod to anyone who needs a realtor. He was a tremendous help after my sister died and we had to sell her house. He advised us on staging the house and took all the photos, including aerial views, and made a wonderful virtual tour and listing. The house sold within a week and he walked us through the whole process. Again, I highly recommend him.
Jeanne Worton - December 2019

Along with his exceptional photographic skills...*****

I have now, for a third time, had the opportunity to observe, and be impressed by, the expertise and friendly professionalism exhibited by realtor Brian MacLeod. Utilizing his broad background of experience, along with his exceptional photographic skills, he was able to help facilitate the fastest sale of a property I have witnessed. The property, belonging to a close friend, was viewed by the purchaser on the 1st day of listing and followed up with a pending offer, quickly leading to a 'SOLD' sticker. I would not hesitate to highly recommend Brian to anyone looking to either buy or sell a property.

Glenn Stronach -Sept 2019

I was pleased with his strategies *****

Brian is an excellent realtor to select. He was referred and glad he was. Brian immediately lined up a number of properties on short notice. And again, when I wanted a second viewing but our schedules didn’t line up for the upcoming 4 days, Brian dropped everything on Father’s Day to attend to the viewing.That wasn’t my intent, yet it was the only time it worked in the next 4 days and Brian was pleased to assist. This house ended being my purchase. An error on my part with financing/possession date also had Brian assist with a resolution with the seller. During negotiations I was pleased with his strategies and the eventual sale price. Don’t hesitate to select Brian to assist with your home purchase.

William Kiminsky - June 2019
We felt very comfortable with Brian right from the start *****

Our experience with Brian was nothing but exceptional. We felt very comfortable with Brian right from the start. He is very professional, experienced and knowledgeable. Quick to respond to all inquiries. Provided advice but at the same time listened to our wants and needs. We would highly recommend Brian whether you are purchasing or selling your home.

Douglas Wilson - July 2019
Highly Recommended! *****

Brian helped us to purchase our first home and connected us with a number of people we would need help from along the way. Highly recommend!

Annie H - February 4 2019
Exceptional Realtor! *****

Exceptional realtor! Brian is knowledgeable and very professional. His patience was outstanding as he had shown us numerous houses before we found the one! He has a high level of market knowledge, and offered us good advice in choosing a home best suited for our needs. He has excellent communication skills and kept us in the loop of what was happening throughout the whole process! Would highly recommend Brian and will definitely use him again in the future!

Jessica Arndt - August 17 2018
Brian was an absolute pleasure to work with during all phases of the selling experience. ***** 

This review comes on behalf of two parties; both my parents and myself. From my parents; Brian was an absolute pleasure to work with during all phases of the selling experience. We were shocked at how fast he responded after our initial contact, it was within minutes! Our previous realtor stopped contacting us with updates towards the last three months of our fifteen month term. Not only was Brian professional, efficient and responsive but he was on board with a lot of social business platforms to reach more people. Our previous realtor didn't even bother to update the awful dead winter photos. We would definitely 100% recommend Brian to anyone looking to sell their home. We had it listed with our previous realtor for over a year, and when we changed to Brian - he sold it within two months, not even kidding! He really made it hassle free. Now from myself; while I didn't live there I am very very much into photography and the first thing Brian did was scrapped all the old awful photos from before. Brian's photography really helps show off the beauty of the home, and offers more of an experience of what is inside. Brian takes the extra step during his photographic process to show the detail inside the home and the beautiful outside details; and let me tell you, it's not a 2 second process - he is definitely a very hard worker! Thank you Brian for your swift execution in selling my folks place! Much appreciated!

Colton L - November 6 2018

Brian was really helpful and didn't pressure us on anything. 

He's friendly and courteous, he also takes calls every day of the week, at almost any time of day. He was good at walking us through the home buying process and recommending useful services to us.

Thanks again for the help Brian!

Ryan C - June 15 2018

We just got our keys today to our new home and we have Brian to thank! *****

He was very professional yet personable during the house hunting process. Easy to communicate with and get a hold of. So genuinely interested in finding the right home for the right price.  I am not the only one in my family that has used Brian's expertise to find a home. 

Thank you so very much for all you have done for not only Shawn and I but our whole family! Would recommend him to others who are searching for the right home!

Alicia S - April 18 2018

Brian is, literally, the standard of excellence which all realtors should strive to achieve. *****

Brian recently helped my sister sell her home, and purchase a new one.  On the sales end, he provided a significantly higher property valuation estimate than other realtors my sister interviewed; and he then made that valuation come true, with numerous suggestions regarding staging the property for maximum appeal.  He also spent considerable time creating some genuinely spectacular photos of both the interior and exterior of the home, using high end professional camera equipment; and he arranged for an aerial video of the outside of the home and neighbourhood, showing the lake and wildlife.  The result was an immensely powerful sales presentation, and it resulted in a final sale price of at least $50,000 more than other realtors suggested they might achieve.

Once the property was sold, Brian helped my sister find a new property.  This involved looking at literally dozens of properties, and an immense time investment on Brians part.  At no time did he show any impatience, or try to upsell my sister into a higher value property; instead, he worked diligently to help her find a property that was right for her, at a price she was pleased to pay.  That happened, and now my sister is happily relocated into a beautiful home that is just perfect for her.  There's no question that she would not have found that perfect home, without Brians endless effort and good will.

I've dealt with several realtors in my life, and I can say without reservation that I've never seen such a high degree of professionalism in any realtor.  

I cannot recommend Brian highly enough, so I shall now stop trying.  But I would suggest that, should you need the services of a truly stellar realtor, you give Brian a call.

It will likely be the best decision you'll ever make.

Charles W - April 15 2018

We never felt pressured to purchase with Brian. *****

As first time home buyers we got lucky finding Brian! He was extremely knowledgable walking us through the house buying steps and always shared a lot of great insights. 

Brian was wonderful with communication, he responded quickly and honestly to our concerns and inquiries, and he had a huge amount of patience as we worked through our first time homebuyer journey. We never felt pressured to purchase with Brian and in the end we love our house and would recommend Brian for anyone looking for a new home!

Julie E - November 6 2017

He was always a text or call away and continued to impress me with fast replies
I have recommended Brian to all my friends and family! Brian was my realtor when I was buying my first home, he made it extremely enjoyable and stress free! Not only was he NOT your typical "pushy" realtor, he continued to show me the do's and don'ts of buying a house for the full year and a half I looked- not once telling me to buy something or pushing me to come to a decision. He was always a text or call away and continued to impress me with fast replies and fast easy bookings the entire time. He seemed to always make it his personal goal to make people feel at ease, calm and happy during the whole process and he definitely stayed true to that!  I will without a doubt be using Brian for any properties whether it be selling or buying in the future!! 
Thank you so much for finding us our dream first home and making the process so enjoyable!! 

Hayley B - August 21 2017

Brian was an absolute Joy to work with *****

Brian was an absolute joy to work with. He was honest, open and treated our family with respect and patience. This was our first 'city' purchase and we really didn't know what to expect.  His experience and his client entered approach made this a pleasurable experience. If you want a realtor who respects your purchase as if it was his - Brian is the guy.  We will miss our Saturday trips with you!

Jane Berggren - August 10 2017

Our experience with Brian was more than what I could have asked for as a first time home buyer. I plan to keep in touch and use him for any properties down the road. I would highly recommend him to any first time home buyer or investor looking for multiple properties. He will take his time to explain every process every step of the way and not push you at all. He will take you to as many properties as you need, before you know you've found the one...
Thank you so much Brian, we appreciated all the help.

Faith Barwick - August 2017

Hard working, diligent, and consistent. *****
Brian is a rare combination of someone who is hard working, diligent, and consistent in delivering properties that were in-line with our requests. Thanks Brian! 

Richard Iwaniuk- March 2017

Brian is professional, respectful and realistic  *****

After 8 months of frustration with other sales reps and companies, I signed with Brian and he had my condo sold within 2 weeks. Brian is professional, respectful and realistic; and he knows the St. Albert area and market extremely well. Thank you Brian, this sale has really improved a very stressful time for myself and my family.
Katherine Landry - March 2017

I was very impressed with my experience!  *****
Brian was very helpful with everything I needed. He was always by his phone if I had any questions, and he worked as hard as he could to have everything done quickly for me. I was very impressed with my experience!

Harley Bradley - March 2017

Brian continued to show patience and never put any pressure on us. *****
We are first time home buyers and we were lucky enough to have found an excellent realtor, Brian Macleod. He helped walk us through all the steps necessary to purchasing a new house and did so with a great deal of patience. As first time home buyers I'm sure that we were exceedingly picky in what we wanted and what we wanted to pay but Brian continued to show patience and never put any pressure on us to purchase a house. He had a great deal of incite in what to look for and what the actual value of a house should be. He answered our calls, texts and emails very quickly and worked around our complicated schedules. We finally managed to find a house we liked and Brian worked hard to get us a price that we were comfortable with. We now have a house. I couldn't recommend him more.

Zach Rix - March 2017 

Highly recommend him *****
Brian is an excellent realtor. His approachable, easy going approach doesn't make you feel any sales pressure. He went above and beyond to not only find us the right property, but ensured all of our questions were answered. Highly recommend him to anyone moving to or within St. Albert.

Colleen Sereda - March 2017

Brian You're a Champ in Our Books *****
After a lot of frustration trying to find what we wanted for a home in St. Albert through many agents who we needed to sign up to their site to review their listing my wife happened on Brian while attempting to sign on to his site. He noticed her having trouble signing in so he contacted her and helped her get set up. To describe Brian takes several adjectives; FAITHFUL describes the way he attended to sending many listing each week; COMMITTED the way he kept to the needs we described and what he kept questioning how the listing were; FRIENDLY Brian is no stuffed shirt and showed sincere concern about us and our hunt for a home; Dedicated as when the summer was fruitless as far as we were concerned he kept at the quest and 2 days before we were to leave for Vancouver he found what we wanted. THOROUGH is another word in the way he worked long hours to get our deal done. Thanks to the efforts of Brian we will be residents of St Albert in Nov 2016. Where others had failed Brian TENACITY FOUND our home and brought the deal to be. The best trait was that through all the trials and tribulations Brian's sense of humor never waned and helped to make a lot of disappointments more bearable. Thanks Brian your a champ in our books.

Merv Graham - September 2016

Brian Macleod is to realty as syrup is to pancakes. *****
He found us our first home and gave us some valuable and honest info along the way. If you're looking for a home, you can do no better than have Brian lead the quest!

Joel McCAffery - July 2016

'This is YOUR man'  *****
Brian did a fantastic job from start to finish. His marketing experience is a phenomenal attribute that surely helped get our previous home sold in a timely manner, no realtor in St. Albert has a comparable system for marketing your home. On our purchase of a new home, Brian acted swiftly when we hit a snag on a different property and was able to get us a viewing on a home that we loved from the beginning of our search but was no longer accepting viewings. In the end we were so happy that we were able to purchase this home. If it wasn't for Brian's quick action and perseverance we wouldn't be were we are. After moving in, Brian has stayed connected with us to ensure there was no surprises and everything was delivered as promised. Brian always made himself available day or night, phone, text or email for all of our questions and concerns. If you're looking for a realtor who will not put any pressure on you to do something you are not comfortable with, will work his tail off for you and communicate all the nuances with real estate, this is your man. You will have a great experience!

Brian was the perfect realtor. *****

He worked hard to find us and lock down the house we had dreamed of. He was always prepared for showings and was knowledgeable about property values in the area. About a week ago, we purchased our first home. Brian made us feel comfortable and relaxed during the process. We communicated by text, phone and email and there was never a time we couldn't get a hold of him. He even helped us move a couple heavy objects on our moving day! Overall, Brian was friendly, committed, trustworthy and worked hard. I would recommend him to all looking to sell or to buy a home in St. Albert.

Allison & Ryan B - 2014-10-20 

I could not have picked a better real estate agent *****

"Last summer I had Brian sell my condo for me and locate a house in Edmonton which I purchased with my son. Brian was very honest with me on the decision on the realistic pricing of my condo which resulted in a very fast sale. As well, he was relentless to find me the right house which fit the lifestyle of my family. I am so very pleased with the purchase of my home in north Edmonton, and I could not have picked a better real estate agent to share this journey with.

I would highly recommend Brian to anyone for buying or selling a house. You will really appreciate his honesty and dedication to his craft."
