Happy Home Buyers!
After living in a home for more than 30 years, it was time to downsize. I noticed one of James Schaeffler’s business cards at the show home I was considering purchasing. I needed a home appraisal on my home and contacted James. He quickly provided me the information to give me a starting point. I had a lot of work to do. I knew I was not forgotten by James when he periodically checked in with me. I never felt pressured. When I was finally ready to sell, James set the ball in motion, explained the COVID safety steps when showing my home; he kept me informed about showings, cancellations and any feedback, and gave me relevant housing market updates. James was always respectful, professional and I appreciated our straight up discussions. I was appropriately informed, and I was heard. I am confident that I was well represented by James throughout the process. Whenever I reached out to James and he was not immediately available, he got back to me soon. I have the highest recommendation of James Schaeffler as a realtor.

My wife and I recently sold and purchased with James Schaeffler. We worked with James for almost two years looking for the right home. Once we found it, we listed and sold very quickly in what is otherwise a slow Calgary market. James was never pushy and always available when called on. He provided accurate market analysis and solid advice on process through negotiations. I would recommend James to anyone looking for an experienced and honest realtor.

James Schaeffler was awesome to work with, he had professional pictures done, and an open house within 4 days of listing, and we sold the house within a week! James Home Marketing gave us updates on all the showing times, dates, and feedback from those who came to look at the home. We highly recommend them!

Thank you James for helping us find our new home in Calgary. You really listened to what we needed, helped narrow down our search to what fit our lifestyle, taste and budget. When it came time to select our home between our final choices, the research on the neighborhoods, your professional and honest opinion really helped us in our decision, as well as in the negotiation. We know we have a great home, in a great location and feel really comfortable that the price negotiated was representative of the market. We can't say thank you enough, and would definitely work with you again and recommend you to friends and family!

10 hours on the market.... I was hoping for 9 but all in all it was an excellent experience. Thanks James and Team!!!
Randy Mayhew
Our home was placed on the market and we received a total of three competing offers. We believe that
it was due to James astute negotiating and interpersonal skills that we found ourselves in this
desirable position. In the end, we accepted an offer that we feel was a fair market price. All real estate
procedures were followed appropriately and the sale of the home was effortless. His integrity provided a
high comfort level for us as well as the purchaser.
Chris & Krista McIntosh
After meeting James for the first time, we had a positive feeling. He was
professional, punctual and thorough... as a result of his strong work ethic, our home was sold the same
day listed.
Maureen & Jens Doebele
James Home Marketing acted on my behalf and helped me to find the perfect home, at a price that I could
live with. Were it not for JHM's honestly and support, I might have been reluctant and could have missed
out on the exciting opportunity of owning another home.

James Home Marketing has a solid marketing strategy for our home and helped us to price it correctly for
the market. James was very considerate regarding our circumstances - we have a baby and a
dog, and he worked around these issues with the listing so that we would have minimal interference in
our home life. Our home sold quickly and he was instrumental in inserting some key clauses into our
sales agreement. When it came to purchasing a new home, James had a great deal of patience.
Janice & Edwin Jong
I recently purchased a home though James Schaeffler and would like to say that I
am a happy customer. I was well taken care of throughout the process. In today's market it can be difficult
to find the right home that suits your budget. He was very patient and worked with me to get the right
place. Thanks James!
Edwin Rattai
We gave James quite a rigid list but he found us a home that met all the criteria that we
asked for at a very satisfactory price. He was courteous and prompt and really did their best to make
the whole transaction as smooth as possible. We both highly recommend him to anyone who is looking
to buy (and or sell) a house.
Jim & Joy Curl
James is excellent and professional! He understood our need to buy a home with a focus on a
good short term investment. James was always honest and sincere with us and respected our opinions and
thoughts. We have to mention that what really pleased us about him is that he isn't a pushy realtor who only want to get a commission. He wants to keep their clients happy.
Katia Guariglia & Francisco Dellane Garcia
James was very up front about the market and where our listing price should be. They
were always available whenever we had a question or needed an update. They were very honest and up
front with us. He is well educated realtors who explained everything we needed to know
in great detail. We would recommend him to any of our friends and family to use in
their time of need.
Dennis & Sharon Sheppard
James made our search and purchases an enjoyable experience. He has a very pleasant
and professional approach and his skills and knowledge provided us with everything we needed to know
to make our most important financial decision. We wouldn't have had the peace of mind we had about our
decision if it were not for him.
Bobby & Kimberly Pilehvarian
James never gave up showing us more and more house and sending us more and more
listings. Whenever we had a question they answered them immediately and efficiently. We are extremely
happy now in our new home and will continue to recommend James Home Marketing to all our family and
friends who are looking for a home in this crazy market. I know that with their help they will find it!
Catrin Paragussu-Heydegger & Fernando Paragussu
We walked into a house that met most of my criteria. James guided me through the buying process and made sure that I talked to all the right people - from a mortgage associate to a general contractor. And, surprisingly, they did not disappear as soon as the papers were signed as I expected them to. Instead, they phones me on a regular basis to ensure that everything was taken care of and that I could move into my new place as planned. They also arranged a second visit to the house to take measurements and assess what needed to be done. I have since used James to sell the home when I needed more space and find me a new perfect spot for my growing family!
Marie-Helene Beauchemin
I was limited to certain days and times when looking to purchase my first home. James worked
very hard to ensure that I had all the right information so that we could use my
time effectively. Often for them that meant late evenings and well as many weekends. They also
accommodated members of my family who came in from out of town to look at properties. in the
end James found me the perfect home. My experience with him
has been extraordinary from beginning to end.
Michelle Schippling
After finding an agent that seemed to be trying to pressure us into making a decision, my girlfriend
and I decided to find a new real estate agent. We met the team and a few weeks later they found us the
house of our dreams. They were attentive to what we wanted and were eager to show us houses that fit
our style (even if it meant looking in neighborhoods that weren't on our radar). We would get emails of
new listings BEFORE we even got home from our appointments with them. When we finally found a
home we wanted, they got the ball rolling immediately, recommending a great home inspector and lawyer
and we were on our way to owning our first home. James, the home is amazing! -
Mike and Meghan
My husband and I wanted to express our sincere appreciation and thanks to James Schaeffler... a long standing reputation of excellence, first rate service, a variety of advertising methods and a top selling record in the real estate sector. James is the only realtor that met all our criteria.
Benjamin & Caroline Harker
James is incredible to work with. He helped us both buy a new home and sell our existing place. James is professional and fun to work with. James helped us get above market value for our home
Brian and Samantha 't Hart
James was a pleasure to work with. His extensive experience in the industry, knowledge, professionalism as well as personality and easy going nature made the entire process a good one. We started communicating with James well before we were planning to list our home. He provided valuable insight into a changing market and was always very responsive when we needed additional information. The listing and selling process went very smoothly. We highly recommend James to anyone wanting to have a positive experience buying or selling.
