5 Star Google Review

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.

Situation

Charlotte and her partner Michel decided to go their separate ways. In the first instance Charlotte explored buying out her partner, but ultimately, she could not afford to do so given that she had been laid off for most of the summer.

Charlotte decided to list with a local traditional REALTOR®that she already knew, liked and trusted. This is how many home sellers pick their REALTOR®. Unfortunately, most individual REALTORS® are not very effective as selling homes. In the past year most REALTORS® sell LESS than 50% of the homes they represent for sale.

She did not receive very much in the way of advice from her REALTOR® or interest from the market. After several months, the listing expired. Charlotte started to look around for a

Situation 

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

Google 5 Star Review

Stuart Neal and Ambergate Advisors are an amazing company to work with!! I have used Stuart twice to both sell and buy properties (2012 and 2019). I was under a very tight timeline with my most recent sale and Stuart got me a full price offer within 2 days of listing! All of this was done at time of year where home buying slows down a lot (Christmas). Everyone that Stuart works with is great too, especially Pam in his office, his recommended lawyer, and the photographer who took the best pictures of my house I’d ever seen. I know the marketing was a direct contributor to what sold my house in the fast time that it did. Even when some of the negotiating conditions got tough, Stuart stood his ground and advocated for me the whole

Situation

Amy and Doug owned this Blackmud Creek home for a number of years whilst their children were growing up. It offered them many happy memories but now that the children had moved away, they chose to purchase a more ‘age friendly’ bungalow. Amy and Doug tried a discount REALTOR® first. The home languished on the market for many months and their discount REALTOR® was unsuccessful in finding any suitable buyers.

Amy and Doug realized they needed to find a REALTOR® that knew how to advertise in all of the best places including social media and to ensure no stone was left unturned. However, they also objected to paying traditional and what they felt was expensive commissions. After researching the market, they chose the flat fee program

Situation

Lyle had plans to build a log home in the foothills. The market had not been kind since he purchased this home and renovated it. Lyle knew he needed to find a real estate brokerage that could sell the home for full market value and potentially save him some money in real estate commissions. The flat fee program offered by Ambergate Realty Advisors was the obvious choice.

Result

After a reasonable period of time we found a good quality buyer that could offer Lyle his possession date and whom was willing to pay full market value. We helped Lyle release the equity from his home and now his new log home is well under way.

Situation

Diana had arranged to move into a brand-new life lease complex offered by Christensen Developments on the west side of Edmonton. Diana knew that the current market for selling condos was tough when she started to look for a REALTOR® to help her sell. Diana was referred to us by some other clients for whom we sold a unit in this building last year. She also wanted to save some money on commissions if she could. After doing some research Diana decided that the flat fee program offered by Ambergate Realty Advisors was the best choice.

Result

After some time and after receiving a few unacceptable offers we identified a strong cash buyer. On behalf of Diana we negotiated market value and obtained her ideal possession date. Diana is now

Situation

Ryan purchased the home privately just a few years ago without the assistance and advice of a REALTOR®. As a result, perhaps he paid more than he should have. Therefore, when it came to selling, Ryan needed the best REALTOR® program he could find for the lowest reasonable fee.

The flat fee program offered by Ambergate Realty Advisors offered Ryan all that he was looking for.

Result

We spent some time advising Ryan on home staging and presentation tips. After he had finished the program the home looked amazing. We advertised the home for sale widely and especially on Facebook. We also used directional signage off the busy arterial road that makes its way through Highlands ie 112th Ave.

After a reasonable period of time we found

Situation

Maya & Petar purchased this home in The Hamptons just a few years ago & due to market pressure at that time, they paid much more than they were comfortable with. A change in family circumstances meant that they needed to sell the home quickly & protect their equity as much as possible. Their first decision was to list with a pure discounter i.e. 2% Realty. Unfortunately for Maya & Petar this did not go well. They reported that the service was very limited & advertising was restricted to just a For Sale sign & an MLS® listing. There were no Open Houses offered, no social media marketing & little in the way of feedback.

Maya & Petar realized they needed a different approach. They wanted to hire a full-service REALTOR®. However, they also
