We knew we picked the right guy at our first interview with Jody. He was very energetic and confident. Our house was a challenge because we only had about a month to sell before we lost our contract with the house we were buying. We were selling in December right before Christmas and the market was down. Jody was able to get so many showings and gave us so much good advice on house preparation and was very good at communicating. In the end Jody was able to negotiate and get our house sold for more than we had initially thought we could get for it. He sold our house for more per square than had been sold in the last 6months in our neighbourhood. He made experience of selling our 1st home a very beautiful one and we highly recommend him. - Tamir and Jacinta Haymour
Reply: Hey Tamir and Jacinta, wow! Thanks so much for the kind words. Greatly appreciated. You guys made my life easy as you were both very understanding and worked very hard at getting everything ready for showings. It was the three of us that got it done without a doubt. Cheers and really hope the new place works out exactly as you plan. Great working with all of you. You have a great family. Good luck!
I had just moved back to Calgary and had to find a house before my short-term rental was up. It was a very difficult and stressful time in my life, besides having to buy a house quickly, and Jody was very helpful and professional. He made it easy and not too stressful. I would definitely use Jody again, for buying or selling. - Catherine Yuill
At my retirement age the real estate market is so overwhelming. Jody made the sale of my home easy and understandable. He worked hard for my family and got us great results in the time frame we gave. I would highly recommend him to anyone in the real estate market!!! Thanks again Jody! - Efren Barrato
Reply: Hey Efren thank you so much, I was very happy to help out you and Evelyn. You are both wonderful people and I truly appreciate you taking the time to submit this review. Eddie, you’re a great guy too buddy! Didn’t want to leave you out. Thanks again for thinking of me. Chat soon!
I really like to thank Jody for helping us in buying our new home. Jody gave advice at every stage and keep us informed as to what is happening and what needs to be done next. He is professional and with excellent negotiating skill. Highly recommended. - Kenneth Cheung
Reply: Hey Kenneth, thanks so much for the review, greatly appreciated! So happy for you, your wife and your son. Welcome to Back to Canada and I wish you nothing but the best in your new home. Valley Ridge is a beautiful area and I am quite jealous of the house we found. Looking forward to seeing the place after you're all settled in. Thank you again for allowing me to help you out.
Such a good relator! Met all the needs for our house and was very quick and professional :) - Sam Maheu
Reply: Thanks so much Sam. It was great to work with you and Rob. So happy we got the place for you two. It will be nice for you to be close to family in Braeside I wish you all the best and thanks again, will stay in touch!
Jody Allen is a go-getter that has a vested interest in making his clients happy. He was available to answer my questions 24/7 and constantly provided help and assistance during the entire life cycle of the transaction. He is a great Ambassador of Century 21 Bamber as his excellent performance portrays the entire organization in a very good way. Jody is simply one of the best realtors you can find in the industry and the best realtor I have worked with in 12 years.
- Ken N
Reply: Thank you for the kind words Ken, I wish you and your family all the best in your relocation to Calgary from Edmonton. Cresmont NW is a great Neighbourhood and will only be getting better with all the new amenities going up all around it. That is a great house, not going to lie, pretty jealous of that place. Look forward to the backyard BBQ this summer. Cheers!
Walk through was done after purchase, so couldn't really complain if anything was wrong. Walk through was done on our own as Realtor did it on her own, before we arrived, gave us keys on drive and said congratulations on your new home. - Phil
Reply: Sorry to hear that Phil. I will definitely speak with my associate about that as I was away on vacation. I was under the impression that everything went well over all with the sale and the purchase. I appreciate the honest feedback and there is always room for improvement, we definitely will not let that happen ever again. It was great working with you and your family and I wish you all the best.
Reply: Jody was our second realtor and he got our house sold in the first day of relisting. Jody was great in the negotiation of our sale and our purchase. We were and are very happy with the service he provided and would recommend him to family and friends in the future. He supported us through our home inspections and provided us with multiple contacts for services to do with buying and selling a home. He is definitely you one stop shop kind of guy as his resources are endless. Again we are very happy with the Service provided and would highly recommend him to anyone. Thanks Phil
Great knowledge to share and got me the best place. Very confident with Jody and was very professional. Jody got me my place quickly and set up with it. Jody was great with direction and easy to work with. Highly recommend!!! - Barrett Fraser
Reply: Hey thanks Barret it is greatly appreciated. Glad I could help out. That is a sweet place. Cheers and thanks again for the opportunity to work with you and thanks for taking the time to write the review.
Jody works incredibly fast. He is diligent and thorough throughout the entire home buying process. His negotiation skills really made it happen for me. The best thing about my experience was the communication was always open & clear and I never felt any pressure from Jody (I have experienced that with other realtors). Jody lays out exactly how it is for you and that's what made him a great realtor for me.

Reply: Hey Geoff, thanks so much for the review! Really do appreciate it, was great working with you and your family, really nice group you have there, hard workers too. Thanks so much for referring your sister, Mom and Dad to me. Their deal closes up soon too! Look forward to popping by your pub soon, Cheers!
Jody was our second realtor we had used to purchase our second home. Our first home was with a builder, so we were used to having everything arranged (lawyer, mortgage broker etc). Since we had very little experience purchasing a home (without guidance from a builder and their team) we were quite novice and required quite a bit of assistance with the purchase process. Our first realtor was very friendly and answered our questions, however it felt as if we were still left with much information unanswered (as sometimes we didn't know what to ask or expect or what we should be doing etc.). We made the decision to shift gears and change realtors to be able to have someone that was not only knowledgeable, but would provide some guidance and talk us through the whole process so we felt comfortable and confident making our choices. I immediately felt at ease as we had lengthy discussions about different ways to get what we needed (ie. a purchase plus mortgage to make immediate renovations). Jody came with experience with construction and was able to identify things in the house we would've definitely missed prior to inspection and offer.
I really appreciated his connections with his mortgage broker, lawyer and inspectors (all of these were arranged by him, therefore we felt similar to that of our first experience with a builder, having everything taken care of for us).
We decided to keep our first house as an investment property after having many lengthy discussions with both jody as well as our mortgage broker and we are so happy we did. They both spent a lot of time going over details with us and answering questions about our first house (even though this was of no financial gain to them) we are very appreciative of the guidance and assistance we received. Jody still continues to check in with us to see how everything is.
We wanted someone who wasn't only financially motivated, but someone that actually cared about our family and that we were making the right decisions, and jody was a perfect fit for us. We have been in our house for almost 4 months now and we are in absolute love with it!

Reply: Wow!! Thanks guys. What a great review. Really appreciate that. Good luck with everything and really look forward to the next one!
I was very pleased to work with Jody. Never pushy (which was very important to me) and he came through when it came to my "wish list". I was able to find my dream home and it was in my price range I provided him. A big bonus was he was able to get a lot of various extras from the builder to make the deal more appealing to me. I would highly recommend his services.

Reply: Thanks Matt, so happy we found that killer place together. I'm pretty jealous. Thank you for taking the time to submit this review. It really helps with new clients I have yet to meet. Love this job! Cheers!
I have used other agents in the past which were fine but my experience with Jody was way beyond expectation. He has a a very wide range of knowledge about the markets and construction. His service was unmatched, he always took our calls, made sure to be honest with us when he wasn't sure about something but always found out promptly. His network was vast and they all worked together to make our experience flawless. Man it was a smooth transacation. Have already recommended him to friends and family. Honestly it was great. Thanks! Greg - Greg
Reply: Hey thanks for the kind words Greg. Greatly appreciated, glad I could help out with everything. You have a great set up there. Will stay in touch and look forward to the next one! Cheers.
I have been working with Jody and his clients for several years as a real estate lawyer. Jody's deals are always extremely easy for me because his contracts come in well drafted and his clients come in very well educated. Jody was a real estate investor before becoming a realtor. He came to the profession with a world of knowledge and has worked tirelessly since then to stay on top of his game, and to provide his clients with service that is second to none.

Reply: To say that means a lot. I really try to make all parties happy, having a great Lawyer in place makes everything run smoothly and ensures that my clients are well taken care of. Your staff are off the charts Ryan. Look forward to many dealings with you guys. Thanks again!
Buying a condo in downtown Calgary couldn't have gone any smoother than with Jody guiding the way through the real estate market to find the perfect place to call home. A lot of people say their realtor was great, but when I compare my experience with those from friends or family, I know Jody went above and beyond to make sure we were happy. Whether it's his quick replies to emails or phone calls, willingness to do extra research on market trends and historical data, or pretty much having an answer to every question asked, Jody was a pleasure to work with. We knew from the very first meeting that he was on our side and wasn't going to stop until we were 100% happy. One of the most personable people I've ever met, Jody uses his friendly and outgoing approach, along with his business acumen, to expertly broker the best deal. For us, this meant getting the condo we wanted at the price we wanted. The standout quality that I recall most fondly from working with Jody though, was that he made condo buying truly fun. Not just the exciting parts, like signing the paperwork or the final walkthrough, but from start to finish. It was an amazing experience that I can't wait to do again! Joe Raiche - Joe Raiche
Reply: Hey Joe, thanks so much for taking the time out of your crazy schedule to write this, very kind words, it goes both ways having great clients like you and everyone I deal with make this so enjoyable. Seeing how happy you guys were with the condo makes it all worth it. Good luck with the practice and know that you really help a lot of people in need out there. Thanks man! You guys were so awesome to deal with.
I have nothing but amazing things to say about Jody Allen. As a first time home owner the process was slightly intimidating, Jody really put me at ease and made me feel 100% comfortable with the whole process. Even when I felt like the stress of buying a new house was going to consume me which I am sure home buyers can relate to, he took the time alleviate my stresses. I had previously worked with a different realtor and for months was feeling like I was getting nowhere, within weeks of working with Jody he found me the house of my dreams. He really listened to what I wanted and found something that suited my needs. He walked me through the whole process, making sure I knew exactly what was happening. I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Jody. Making such a life impacting decision, it was so great to know I had someone truly in my corner, advocating for me and really going above and beyond. I am happy to say that I am loving my life in my new house and I contribute a lot of it to the time and effort and his caring attitude that he put in to finding me the perfect place. - Lyndie Sundby
Reply: Hey Lyndie, I am so glad your sister sent you my way. You were both a lot of fun to work with made my job so easy. We scored with that place man oh man what a beauty (Not that everyone else's places aren't awesome too). So jacked for you, looking forward to the summer BBQ party!
As a first time home buyer, Jody really eased me into it and walked me through the whole process. He listened to me about what I wanted in a home and worked hard to get me the best deal he could. Not only that, he is very knowledgeable about the industry and provided great insight into good areas that best suited me, and the advice portion was the cherry on top. Even after the purchase was over, he stayed in touch and followed up with me. He even came by to help me with a faulty door lock! which goes to show that he truly does look out for his clients and provides impressive service. Would recommend him to any of my friends and family.

Reply: Hey Cindy, you are the best, thanks for that. Love your place so much. Lookin forward to seeing it when everything is moved in and ready. So bummed I missed the house warming. Next party I'm there! You were a blast to work with and thanks so much for the referrals. Hugely appreciated.
I have been working with Jody for over 15 years and have dealt with him on various projects and he has always met or exceeded my expectations. Now that he is in Real Estate it is obvious that he has found his calling. I am a mortgage broker that deals with hundreds of different agents and I put Jody at the top with the best that are out there. His dedication to serving the client is unmatched and he goes way beyond what is required of him. I have seen and heard of his negotiation abilities and I am Constantly amazed at what he pulls off. His knowledge in construction and real estate investing is a huge asset for all his clients. Keep up the great work! Brad Gavin Mortgage Alliance - Brad Gavin

Cheers man, such a huge asset to everyone you deal with. My peeps are the best!!
