I am pleased to recommend Ambergate Realty Advisors, and Stuart Neal. Stuart gave great advice on all aspects of the sale, from staging our home and presentation, the current market conditions and pricing the home to sell, to handling tricky negotiations with prospective buyers. I got solid advice and despite the challenging times (selling your home in a pandemic sales is never easy :)) I got a very good deal. Stuart’s extended team were also great – communication from his office was timely and consistent, the photographer took amazing photos which showed our home really well and his recommended lawyer has been a pleasure to work with.

All in all an excellent experience.

After the board of directors at the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton (RAE), the Member Services Committee is perhaps the most important assembly of RAE members.

Historically, the Member Services Committee was elected by the members to speak for the members. Stuart was successfully elected by his fellow brokers 2 years ago to represent them and their interests.

Early in 2020, he was elected by his fellow committee members to lead and speak for them and all fellow RAE members. Stuart is a Co-Chair. The other Co-Chair was elected by board of directors.

Sophie and Morgan purchased this home ‘for sale by owner’ just a few years ago and by their own admission, they paid far too much for it.

They decided that they wanted to simplify their lives, slow down and divest themselves of surplus assets and incumbrances, (this was a home they purchased to stay in when they came to Edmonton from the country).

When it came to selecting a REALTOR® their objectives were clear.

First, the wanted someone local who knew the nuances of the Highlands Bellevue market. Our team scored well here. The main office is right in the centre of Highlands and Stuart Neal the broker owner is a long time Highlands resident.

Second, they wanted a home selling program that offered value. The flat fee program

Nayyar and Uzma were presented with an opportunity to move to Texas with Nayyar’s employer. They had purchased their Cumberland home in 2016 and therefore had not built up any equity. They decided to look around for a service provider that provided value, rather than a traditional and expensive REALTOR®. Their first option was Purple Bricks. They met and interviewed a representative from Purple Bricks. They were concerned about contracting with a company based in Quebec, rather than a team based here in Edmonton.

Stuart Neal our broker owner met with Nayyar and Uzma to go over our plan. We think that they enjoyed the personal service and from a marketing perspective, they were very impressed that our program includes a VIRTUAL TOUR.

We are pleased to recommend Ambergate Realty Advisors, and Stuart Neal for a remarkable Real Estate experience. After 50 years in our home, we wanted to downsize to a more relaxed lifestyle. In this very tough buyers market, Stuart helped us get a higher price than we had originally expected for which we are truly grateful. Stuart helped us to remain calm and always tried to help us have a positive outlook. We also appreciate the lower flat rate fee which has to be a factor for all home sellers in the current real estate market.

Dean purchased this lovely home and ultimately realized it was too big for him and on the wrong side of town. Dean was not keen on spending a large amount of money on real estate commissions and so he purchased a program from Purple Bricks. The registration process was fine. The Purple Bricks tech took the photos and some pertinent details. The Purple Bricks tech also installed the for-sale sign. A few weeks went by and interest plus support was lackluster according to Dean. He paid a little and received little in the way of value. In Deans words he started to look around for a locally owned real estate brokerage that was thinking ‘outside of the box’. Dean quickly realized that the flat fee program offered by Ambergate Realty
