“Please be advised of my COMPLETE satisfaction with the Company and specifically Mr. Courtney’s professional handling of the sale “process” – from listing through to deposit. I have twice listed with NAI Advent, one building in a poor location that was listed and sold within just a few MONTHS – when I thought the soft market would require YEARS to find a buyer. Currently I have a U.S. property listed with NAI and have and Offer in contemplation after two other Real Estate companies stateside failed to produce any results. I listed privately on the internet, held an auction, and tried everything I could otherwise: but NAI is Internationally connected and I simply had not thought of using this local connection on a Global scale.

Twice I have had the pleasure of working with the most knowledgeable and proactive realtor I’ve ever met in MANY years of buying and selling property! Both commercially and privately, I’ve dealt with over twenty real estate Agents and NAI Advent is hands down the on I will use in the future. Responsive, accessible, professional, thoughtful, knowledgeable, personable and current are just a few of the descriptions I’d use to express my complete satisfaction with NAI Advent.

They’re well connected world-wide and use all the tools at their disposal to advertise, promote, and effect a sale from listing to post sale review. Their fees are reasonable and certainly a value for effort expended; in this customers’ mind they have delivered the most Complete Satisfaction I ever imagined.

Do not hesitate to contact the writer for a more detailed and enthusiastic review!”

“Even though Jim Courtney represented both parties he was able to deal with the buyer and the seller fairly. We certainly felt that we were fully supported. Besides the usual dealings he met two times with our congregation answering all questions clearly and honestly. He was also available by phone or e-mail for many more queries. He was also in ongoing contact with the Alberta Conference church treasurer. In addition, since the seller want to lease the church on a partial use basis, Jim managed that transaction as well. Jim put our church interest first. If we had questions he was quick to respond. We had many questions in regards to protocol and the handling on the monetary transactions. Jim was upfront as to how and when and what to expect as the procedures and transaction went forward. In all we were well represented and came away smiling.”
