Anne’s Customer Reviews
“Moving in a new city all across the country is somewhat daunting when you are not familiar with the Calgary real estate market. We truly needed someone special to guide us through this especially considering the tight deadline we were facing to find our next home. Anne definitely exceeded our expectations.
We arrived in Calgary with a tight deadline only to be met with a house hunting week that was organized like clock work; indeed we visited over 22 houses in two days! Anne drove us everywhere with such patience, and treated us warmly making sure we took time to really absorb the new environment and gather enough data to make an informed decision. Time flew and with her help we narrowed it down to two options; once again Anne advised us very well. She guided us by providing the right facts so we could truly decide for ourselves.
Anne was also instrumental when it was time to make an offer and negotiate the final price. We feel very much to have invested in a superb property for the right price. We could not have done this without Anne’s guidance and professionalism. Anne is truly a professional and we would not hesitate to say, the very best we have dealt with. We would recommend her to our closest friends and family members. Give her a call if you need a real estate agent in the Calgary area who delivers! ”

We met Anne during our Realtor selection process when we decided to put our home up on the market. The selection process didn’t take too long after we had met Anne. In her second meeting she had walked us through the process end-to-end and we remember actually coming away from that meeting with a very strong vision and assurance of the sale. What followed in the next few days was one of the best home selling experiences that we have ever had – from the touch-ups, to the staging, marketing to the showings and beyond.
We signed an offer about 12 hours after the first showing at 10K more than the listed price.
To us, that was not our biggest prize in this journey – our true find was a friend in Anne – a friend who very ‘matter-of-fact’ly picked the phone up, did her research on realtors in the area that we were relocating to, personally spoke to them and put us through to one that she felt would be able to take us through the same experience there that she did here in Calgary.
Anne, we wish you and your family the best of everything ahead.

My family and I recently relocated from Scotland, UK. On deciding to buy rather than rent, we were referred to Anne through a colleague at work.
Without Anne’s assistance we would never have managed to locate a house. Anne worked with us remotely via email for many weeks, whilst we were still in the UK, giving us advice on many aspects of Canadian home ownerships and the different communities around our targeted quadrant. When we finally travelled over to find a home we had narrowed the City to a handful of properties that we were expertly guided round with Anne in her vehicle. Everything was explained to us since home buying in Canada is lot different from the UK.
We were able to purchase one of these shortlisted homes with Anne’s full assistance throughout offering, counter-offering, home inspection reports, contracts and everything in-between. We were even lucky enough to find a mortgage broker and lawyer all through Anne’s recommendations.
I can’t recommend Anne highly enough; distance and time zones were certainly no challenge. Without Anne I genuinely believe we would still be searching.

The thought of purchasing my first home was a very scary one, especially being single and alone in the city! I am very lucky to have been referred to Anne. In her, I not only found an incredibly dedicated agent, but a friend and the best advisor. What I liked the most about Anne is that I never felt any pressure to close the deal. I needed an agent who would be willing to give me her opinion because I did not know enough about the process or what to look for. Anne was great at telling me her thoughts and would support them with good arguments. If we didn’t think that the place was right for me, we would move on to the next listing until we found the one! I don’t know how she does it, but although she is such a busy real estate agent, she always gave you all the time I needed. Her response time is almost immediate and you can be sure that at closing, she will be on top of the details at all times. Anne made my first home purchase experience very smooth and exciting! Even! though I love my condo I can’t wait to start looking for my next place and I am convinced that there is no one else I would want by my side but Anne! I must also thank Dana, Anne’s assistant, for being so diligent and efficient! Thank you!
Anne, I wanted to thank you very much for such a fantastic job on our property. Working with you was a real pleasure. Your energy, enthusiasm and professionalism exceeded our expectations!
– Thushyanthan & Aravinthan
Both Brian and I were extremely happy with the services you provided! Your professionalism, integrity and honesty were greatly appreciated and made the selling process as easy as possible. Considering the tough market we really appreciated your knowledge of the area, the market, and in depth analysis of what had happened as well as your insight on what was changing. Your experience and contacts in the industry were fantastic; from market analysis, to staging and photos all the way through to negotiations. It was great working with you and we have already recommended you to friends and were happy that our friend recommended you to us!
– Brian and Roberta
We chose Anne as the realtor to sell our home because of her experience. We interviewed a few realtors, but she was the one to impress us the most. Not even 24 hours from the first contact I made with Anne, she had a market analysis ready for us. Furthermore, Anne offered a variety of services that made us comfortable that our home would be put in the market with the most competitive edge possible. We were impressed with the quality of work that she and her team put together just as our home went up for sale.
Our home sold very fast – within days – and throughout the process, Anne was very professional, and respectful of our time and concerns. Selling a home is not an easy process, but Anne made the stress feel so much less! She is always available to respond to you, and she considers seriously every question and takes the time to answer you.
While negotiating the sale of our home, Anne was very respectful of our opinions and did the best to represent our interests. She offered her advice when asked and allowed space for both our emotions and logical thinking to take place. We sincerely appreciated that! Anne has become a friend to us. We sincerely thank her for being so trustworthy, understanding and accommodating. We feel very comfortable referring our friends and family to Anne for their real estate needs.

I would like to thank Anne Lindsay for the exceptional services we received. We were so impressed with the team approach to selling our home which included a stager and professional photography. The professionalism shown by everyone involved was appreciated and made our home look stunning. The sale went smoothly and quickly. Anne’s experience has ensured a successful and trouble-free experience, she made all of the transactions worry free. I would definitely recommend her to anyone for their Real Estate needs.
– Linda & Keith
Jacinthe and I wish to extend our gratitude for your outstanding services for the sale of our home in Cougar Ridge. We now understand the importance of selecting the right price and the proper staging of the house for its viewing. You and your team provided us with some additional and precious advice specially catered to the Calgary market. Your team made our home stand out above the competition and enable its sale (at the price we wanted) after only seven days on the market despite the current economic crisis.
I also appreciate your personal touch and endless support to Jacinthe during the sale period while I was away over seas. Thank you.
For all Calgarian homeowners, call Anne M. Lindsay, if you want to sell your home.
– Kunvana & Jacinthe
We met Anne couple of years ago in an open house event. She was not our realtor at that time, but after a 5 minutes conversation with her we wished she was. Anne left such a good impression on us, that two years later, when it was time for us to sell, she was our first and only choice. We were first time sellers with tons of questions and uncertainties that Anne with her experience and professionalism helped us to clarify. Anne walked us through the entire process and made it simple and effortless. She designed our sale plan and transformed our house from a “just for sale property” to a “must have property”. We thought our house would take 60 days to sale; Anne sold it in just 6 days and above asking price!. We are truly thankful with Anne and her outstanding job.

I would recommend anyone to choose Anne Lindsay when looking to sell or buy a home, especially those looking for homes on the west side of Calgary. Anne has an invaluable wealth of knowledge gained from living and working on the west side. Anne was patient while helping us weed out the neighborhoods in which we weren’t interested and helped us to hone in on homes where we were.
Deciding on a neighborhood was one accomplishment, finding the right home was quite another! We looked at numerous homes with Anne and she was always available on a moments notice to take us through potential homes. We felt as if we were her only clients when we were with her. Anne provided advice on what she thought the trouble spots of the home were, particularly in areas where it was hard to picture, like how one would develop an unfinished basement.
We eventually found the home of our dreams with Anne and it was worth the wait. Anne never pressured us to ‘get a move on’ and her level of service never faltered throughout our time together.
Anne’s connections with other Calgary realtors helped us find our home. Anne knew the sellers agent and was able to get us the very first showing of our home which was invaluable in a competitive market. We had seen competitive bids increase the sales price of others homes by upwards of $25,000. A price we weren’t willing to pay.
Upon purchasing we were anxious to sell our current home and Anne pulled through for us, selling our home on the first day and getting the terms and conditions that we wanted, for more money than we asked for. We couldn’t have asked for better service and will look to Anne in the future should we need her services again!

One of my clients referred me to Anne after hearing about my experience with several less than enthusiastic realtors. As a business owner, I have precious little time to waste, and I was delighted with Anne’s promptness in arriving on time at our home and her calm professionalism. It was so refreshing to work with a genuine professional who immediately zeroed in on the strengths and marketability of our home. Anne came prepared with market research and a presentation that was second to none. She has a marketing team including a professional photographer that made our home a showpiece! We also took advantage of another valuable asset to her team – Stage Right Interiors, who made our home look amazing! Anne coordinated and scheduled everything perfectly and we were absolutely thrilled to have our house on the market for only six hours before we were presented with two offers over “list”!
While I’m sure Anne would be the first to say she can’t promise these phenomenal results, I would highly recommend that you consider Anne for your next home selling adventure. She truly delivers in all aspects of the real estate business and I am so impressed with her attention to all details of the selling process. In my opinion, you simply can’t find a better realtor!
– Sincerely, Maureen Khallad
After dabbling a bit in what was becoming a very hot market I decided it was time to get serious in consulting area specialists and choosing a partner in buying my new home. I knew that I would need someone especially experienced and knowledgeable in the West Side of the city so I met with Anne over a coffee to ‘interview’ her and see if I thought she would be the right match for me. In short, it took 5 minutes and I knew she was.
I knew what I wanted in a home, I knew where I wanted it to be, I knew that it would be tough and I knew I would have to find a realtor who was patient and tenacious at the same time. Anne was available to me anytime I called – even at short notice in the evenings AFTER a long day of unsuccessful booked appointments. Anne really took the time to listen to me and search out houses that met my long list of criteria.
More than just finding and showing houses to me, Anne championed my bids which at the time saw me competing with up to 12 other offers and kept my spirits high. I lost in 2 bid processes which turned out to be a blessing but Anne never lost momentum in searching out the perfect home for me. In the end, Anne and I found a house that was everything on my wish list even in the crazy Calgary market. She guided me through putting together a competitive offer and celebrated with me when finally we beat out the other 4 bidders and I had my home. This was a very scary and exciting thing for me to do on my own and I felt comfortable and confident with Anne walking me through the process. I have recommended Anne to others already and will continue to send hopeful buyers her way. Anne is every bit the professional that it takes to buy in Calgary and I wish her continued success!

We were extremely lucky and very pleased to have Anne Lindsay as our realtor listing and selling our home. We chose Anne because of her market experience, professional and very personal manner without recommendation and in reflection realize how lucky we were to have chosen Anne. Everything happened as promised during all phases of our home sale and we felt very informed and in control every step of the way. Through Anne’s hard work, experience and market knowledge and awareness, we were able to achieve a sale for our house several tens of thousands of dollars higher than the ‘high profile’ realtors in our area even suggested that we list our house for. Anne is willing to go well beyond the expectations of an average realtor to ensure that everything is done possible to maximize the value and sale of the property and works hard to minimize the disruptions and impacts on our everyday life. Most of all Anne provided a very personal service was able to achieve our desired sale results, while at the same time making the sale of our home a very positive experience, without any un-necessary pressure. Anne is now a friend of the family and we highly recommend her as a realtor to anyone looking to buy or sell a property. You will be very impressed if you choose to work with Anne on your real estate needs!

When we arrived to Calgary, we didn´t know anyone that could help us find and buy a home. We did a quick search on the Internet, found Anne Lindsay’s web site and decided to give it a try. That was the best decision we made. Anne understood our needs, showed us houses that closely matched those needs, and when we were ready, she explained the buying process one step at a time. We were able to buy a great house in less than a month thanks to Anne´s diligence.

Cuando llegamos a Calgary, no conocíamos a nadie que pudiera ayudarnos a comprar una casa. Hicimos una búsqueda rápida en Internet, encontramos la página web de Anne Lindsay y decidimos llamarla. Esa fue la mejor decisión que pudimos tomar. Anne entendió nuestras necesidades, nos mostró casas que se adaptaban a esas necesidades, y cuando nos decimos, ella nos explicó el proceso de compra paso a paso. Pudimos comprar una excelente casa en menos de un mes, gracias a la dedicación de Anne.

Working with Anne to sell our house was an wonderful experience. This was the first time my husband and I had to go through the process of selling a home and we appreciated how Anne walked us through each step and explained everything. We needed to sell our house fairly quickly as we were moving out of the province. Anne made the entire process smooth and efficient, so efficient in fact that it took only 2 days to sell our home for the price we were looking for!
She not only got the job done but was wonderful to work with throughout the entire process. We would both highly recommend Anne Lindsay as a Realtor to everyone.
– Julie and Aaron
Anne Lindsay first impressed me with her flexibility and how quickly she comprehended what our priorities were. Anne understood our busy schedules, and adapted to the perfect means of house hunting that suited our lifestyle. We communicated extensively and discussed properties prior to viewing any homes. Our perfect home was found with only one evening of viewing houses, simply because Anne had become so acquainted with our needs, and took the time to narrow the search to just what we were looking for. It was so simple; as easy as shopping on e-bay.
Anne has kept in touch throughout the wait for possession and kept us informed. She has shared our enthusiasm, excitement and anticipation, and has taken a true interest in our family. Somewhere in the process, Anne Lindsay became our friend, not only our realtor.

I had the fortunate opportunity to work with Anne Lindsay when I relocated to Calgary and started looking for a house to purchase. I found Anne to be a personable, professional and energetic individual who worked hard to ensure my best interests were met. She exceeded every expectation that I had regarding Realtors and customer service and provided me with outstanding and personalized attention. Anne listened to me, considered my needs and showed me only properties that interested me. I came to trust her judgment and valued her opinion when she expressed it. I do not hesitate to recommend Anne Lindsay to anyone who wants personalized service and an extremely knowledgeable professional. She was a valuable asset to me and assisted me in every aspect of my purchase. I am thankful not only to have found a great realtor but also to have made a great friend.

My wife and I were looking for the perfect house – this was our first home purchase, so we wanted it to be the right one. We met Anne at an Open House one Sunday afternoon. We were hesitant to work with any realtor, but after our conversation with her that afternoon, we were very impressed with her honesty and the time she took to explain things to us that we didn’t understand. We didn’t feel we were under any pressure or obligation and that made us feel very comfortable. Later we called Anne and thanked her for being so open and honest with us and we would be happy if she would help us find a home. In less than 6 days Anne made that dream come true. Thank you again for all your hard work – oh I must tell you, Anne inspired me to become a Real Estate Agent. So I took the coarse and now I am looking forward to my future as a agent and one day becoming part of her Team. It would be great working together!
