Commercial REALTOR Reviews & Testimonials
Read reviews from past clients of John Carter on their experience buying, selling and investing in apartment buildings in Alberta.
Multi-Family - First Time Buyer + Growth
In 2012, we had discovered a listing for some apartments we wanted to look at, so we asked around for an experienced multi family realtor, John was recommended to us. We began the process of reviewing the listings and with John’s extensive knowledge of apartments we soon came to learn that we had stumbled upon an incredible deal. At the time we were just looking and had no serious intention of buying one building, let alone two, but John quickly pointed out that we could and could easily buy both buildings, as deals like that were rare. The journey to completing that deal was not an easy one, we ran into several obstacles, but all along the way John was there willing to offer whatever help we needed. If we needed a professional to conduct an inspection, or do some work he had an arsenal of trusted people we could work with. Any nerves we had about our deal were easily settled when he would share his vast knowledge and experience with purchasing & operating apartments. Once the dust settled we were proud owners of two buildings in a deal that has been described as “once in lifetime”. Soon after that purchase we decided to look for another building, upon review of our files we learned we could refinance our first buildings and buy another one with almost no new cash. Upon that discovery we enlisted John to source out a building that would suit our needs. Once again we were treated very well. He constantly sent us listings to review and took the time to give us honest and helpful information for us to analyze each deal. It didn’t take long for us to find another building that fit our needs. John’s commitment to helping us find properties and support during the purchase and long after is a valued trait in a realtor. He has been a great member of our team and we consider him a friend. Without a doubt we will use him again and again.

Multi-Family Sellers - Edmonton, AB.
My husband and I are very pleased with our service from John, and the rest of his team during the sale of our investment properties. That is not to say that we did not hit a few bumpy patches during the closure of some deals. Although these issues we faced were not Johns fault, he did his best to correct them from his office in Edmonton, which, since we live in Calgary, was helpful. We realized that there was an opportunity for further collaboration and growth through our partnership with John, and with the next property sale, things went more smoothly. He did the things that were almost impossible for us Calgarians to deal with while not living in Edmonton or living in the property that we were selling. Dealing in investment properties is an always evolving and changing microcosm, and John has done well to help us journey through the fluctuations within the market and hurdles that have been encountered. We will continue to give John our business.

John has a keen eye for real estate, and he’s always there to help, regardless of whether you have a deal on the go or not. I highly recommend John’s service to both the seasoned investor, and the first time home buyer.
Working with John Carter and team, one can expect knowledgeable professionalism. With promptness and courtesy they respond to inquiries and requests, which is critical to our business operating out of Vancouver. John and the team have an accurate sense of the market, and offer valuable strategic suggestions to sell property. We also appreciate that they do not over extend themselves and are selective with their clientele, which allows them to give the necessary attention to each project that is a requirement to sell in this competitive market. John has proven that he can effectively manage potential buyers and work well with all parties through closing. We would recommend their services.
Multi-Family Sellers - Vegreville, AB.
Thanks John for all you have done for us in the sale of our building. I was expecting some cancellation or something but today everything went through and we have a positive sale. You worked hard on a few other clients and it seemed that these buyers just came out of the wood work. It is funny because I suggested to Dave that when the listing was up that we would just leave it off the market for a while and move back and take care of it ourselves. I attribute most things to a higher power but I also know some people work very hard to make things happen and you are one of them! Thanks again,
