Josh was referred to us by another amazing realtor we had worked with from another Province and being still somewhat new to Calgary we really didn't know where to start. Josh made us feel welcome right away and it was easy to see that we were in good hands. From the start, Josh was terrific as we searched many properties across various parts within and outside of the city to find that perfect home and property for our family. We found a wonderful home at an amazing price. He was knowledgeable, patient, understood our needs, offered advice and perspective that was invaluable, and never had any doubt that despite our very particular requests we would indeed find what we were looking for. Josh went above and beyond, researching information, connecting with various experts, and leveraging his network of professionals in other related areas of expertise who were equally amazing, whether mortgage brokers, legal experts, or construction and renovation specialists. Josh's negotiating skills are second to none as he negotiated potential deals and then the ultimate deal with professionalism and ease always working to get the best possible scenario for us. When potential roadblocks or challenges arose, he found solutions and alternatives and his resilience and positivity was very appreciated. We have no hesitation in recommending Josh to anyone looking for a first class results-oriented and client-focussed professional realtor. We felt well cared for and even after we purchased the home, Josh still stayed in touch and followed up to make sure things had gone and continue to go smoothly. Whenever our next sale or purchase of property will be, we absolutely will look forward to working with Josh again.

Our experience with Josh and Art couldn't have been much better. We were looking for a house in Lake Bonavista to renovate into our dream home and we found it very quickly. I was worried that he might try to steer us toward buying one that was already nice (bigger commission) but Josh really only seemed interested in making sure that we found what we wanted and were comfortable along the way. We also ended up selling our old house for exactly what we wanted in under a month!

My husband and I worked with Art for the past couple of years when we were looking for our home. Even though it took us quite a while before we bought our dream home, Art was so patient with us and quickly arranged times to visit homes we were interested in and he patiently shared his opinions and offered a lot of useful information. We really appreciated his vast knowledge in the real estate industry when it came time to make the final decision to buy. We felt throughout the process that Art wanted the best for us and was there to represent our interests. We are very glad we got to work with Art and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend him!
My husband and I were very impressed with Josh's expertise and knowledge of the current market. He helped us sell our home and buy a new bigger home to that was perfect for our family. And at the right price too! Thank you Josh!

As first time home buyers, we had an incredible amount of questions, excitement, and nerves. Not only that, but we weren't sure which community we wanted to settle in. Josh took the time out if his weekends and evenings to show us homes as far as Strathmore. With his patience, knowledge, and guidance, we bought our home in Cochrane. We would use his services again in a heartbeat, and highly recommend him to our friends and family.

Britany and I recently had the pleasure of working with Josh when purchasing our new home. We were living separately and maintaining 2 condo's; It was time to plan for our future under one roof. Our journey started with the sale of one of our condo’s. Josh provided tips and pointers on how to stage our home for prospective buyers, recommended accurate list prices and it worked! A few open houses and less than 20 days later we had an offer with another back up offer if the first fell through (I thought they said it was a slow market!). Speaking on our purchase; From day 1, Josh was responsive, honest and had great insight. We had specific criteria we were looking for in our future home – not to mention a strong preference to certain inner city neighborhoods. He was knowledgeable about the process and even had an eye for the small details and particulars within each home we viewed, let me tell you; we saw a lot of homes. We thank him for his incredible patience as we tried to maximize our budget and pushed for lower prices in a struggling market and for setting us up with an incredible mortgage broker . We ended up finding a house that was under construction in beautiful Highland Park, when we first viewed the house we knew it was the one for us, even though the drywall was just going up. After a long negotiation with the developer, Josh had closed the sale at an unbelievable price (about 50k less than what houses were selling for in the area at that time) and negotiated so that we got to pick all of the finishes within the home. Through his perseverance, we were able to secure our home before it even hit the market and saved a ton of money! Who doesn’t like that? He continued to work with us and the developer up until the possession date, ensuring walk through’s were completed, all legal and financial aspects were aligned, home warranty was transferred and ensured the final product was exactly what we picked. Once settled in, Josh stopped by to check in and share some of his favorite wines with us. We appreciated having him in our corner for both the sale and our complex / less than normal home purchase. Thanks Josh!

Art Leslie helped my wife and I put a bid on a beautiful home on one of the most exclusive streets in Calgary. Although our bid was refused Art knew we really liked the neighbourhood. A week later Art informed us he had arranged 3 showings on the same street - for homes that were not currently listed for sale. How'd he do it? By picking up the phone and calling homeowners to gauge their interest in selling their homes to his client. What Art did for us is unprecedented in his industry. He's not an ordinary realtor. He's an advocate for you and your family's real estate needs. If you are looking to buy a home in or around Calgary - Art is the realtor of choice!

Art was highly recommended, as a Realtor of choice in Calgary, by my daughter and son in law, who dealt with him on their two properties. We found him very professional, listens to your expectations in a residence, doesn't waste your time, makes recommendations and knows what he is doing, and is very experienced, for a young man. He has the respect of both my wife Marilyn and myself, and has a very human approach to his trade, as a Professional Realtor. If you want a job done right, I highly recommend Art as your realtor.

Hi, just a note to say thanks for all you have done for us throughout this process. As first time buyers, we had a lot of unanswered questions regarding the purchase of our home. Thank you for providing the answers to many of these and giving us informed advice on the homes that we visited!
