We recently used Janet Houle and Michele Monteith from CIR to sell our Calgary house. They are an amazing realtor team that bring together a strong compliment of skills. It all starts with great care where they go well over and above the norm, with strong organization, professionalism and handling of every detail, such that they make the whole process seamless. They were both caring and sensitive with the whole family when the moments required it, knowledgeable and lots of fun as well as outstanding at negotiating. Their biggest strength was understanding of people, which complimented the technical skills and allowed us to maximize the potential opportunities. We selected them from a selection of a few strong realtor referrals and would repeat our selection, without hesitation. It was a pleasure to work with them and would highly recommend them to anyone. They achieve timely and market price results in a poor and softening real estate market, turning one of our biggest concerns into a success.
Thank you every so much Janet and Michele, we are so ever grateful for your expertise and friendly upfront approach!!

Huge thanks to Michelle and Janet. You made selling our home an amazing experience starting right from the first meeting. ~The Beatty Family
Michele and Janet were the most incredible team that either my boyfriend and I have ever worked with. Their guidance and resourcefulness coupled with a great sense of humour made us feel at ease through the process of buying our first home. We are extremely grateful for all of their help and would highly recommend because our time with them was so spectacular.
~Mic and Mac
Great experience for first time home buyers. Michele was knowledgable and helpful about every step along the way!
~Brad and Rachel
Michele and Janet were the most amazing team of realtors, ever! They were on top of every communication & transaction, as well as giving us great advice and support throughout the purchase of a property for a family member. There is no one we could more highly recommend than the Monteith Houle Real Estate Team!
We had the opportunity to work with Michele and Janet for selling our property and purchasing a new one. In both scenarios we found both Michele and Janet to be extremely professional, prompt in communication and most importantly mindful in conducting business. They made home buying an effortless task. They were able to provide recommendations of homes as they got to know their customers really well and listened to what they wanted. They also remained extremely patient when we were selling our house, which can be a hell of process in this tough housing market. They pretty much helped us sail through the entire process.
Another thing we shouldn't forget to mention is that Michele negotiated very effectively on our behalf. We was very impressed how calm she can remain and yet get the best possibly outcome. We would definitely recommend them to friends in the future. Thank you Michele and Janet !

"Michele and Janet have been unbelievable to work with. They were both professionalism and caring and made the entire process seamless. Their in depth knowledge of today's market was key and put us on the right track for success. These two make an amazing (and fun) team, they were always just a phone call or text away to answer any of our questions. Thank you for everything Michele and Janet!"

"I bought my house with Michele and Janet, and they are both very knowledgeable and sincere women. They obviously love their jobs, and compliment each other well. I felt that they were determined to find me and my family the perfect home; for the right price, and in the community we wanted to live. I referred Michele and Janet to my mother, and right away, my mom felt comfortable with them.
This was a challenge because my mother lived in an adult only apartment condominium. A very limited market at the time. Michele and Janet worked hard to complete the sale, quickly and painlessly.
Both my mother and I would recommend Michele and Janet to anyone looking to buy or sell their home.
Thank you both for a happy home."

"We are very grateful to have had Michele and Janet represent us when selling our home. They were amazing realtors to deal with, very professional and accommodating to our unique needs. They brought a great deal of knowledge about our area and the market. We would strongly recommend them to anyone looking to sell or buy a property and are convinced that everyone will have a positive experience working with them. Thank you again Michele & Janet!"
"We can not express enough how thankful we are to have chosen Michele & Janet to be our realtors for both the purchase and selling phase of our move. Their professionalism, due diligence, gentle guidance and patience throughout our house search & putting our old home for sale, not only led us to our perfect new home but also to the sale of our old house in just 3 days. Michele and Janet went above and beyond their call of duty as realtors throughout this process with us and we highly recommended them to anyone thinking of buying or selling a house."

Michele is a dream realtor. She was committed to finding me the perfect house even when it took months and months. Michele made the process so easy and fun. I was almost sad to have my offer go through because it meant that I wouldn't have anymore house viewing sessions with her! Until next time...
I was so well taken care of. Michele was efficient,
"Just want to give a big shout out to Janet and Michele for the wonderful experience we had with the sale of our home. Janet is a long time friend and so we felt very comfortable with her and had complete confidence in her ability to take care of us. We met Michele at our initial meet and greet and was immediately put at ease with big warm smile and wonderful personality. Janet and Michele make an amazing team, we were very impressed by their wealth of knowledge about all aspects of selling our home. They answered every question we had for them and were always available any time of the day or night. Our home sold within days of listing with them and everything was handled with the utmost professionalism. I would highly recommended Janet and Michele if you are considering buying or selling, you will not be disappointed! Thanks ladies!"

"Our move to Calgary took over a year. As we were new to Calgary and the real-estate market was very different than our previous city, Janet was recommended to us through a friend. We have sold and purchased 4 prior homes over the years in 4 different cities and our experience with Janet and Michele by far has been the best so far. They were extremely knowledgeable of the areas in the city we were interested in and turned out to be very patient as our timeline stretched out much longer than we planned. We never felt pressure throughout. They learned quickly what we were interested in and not interested in seeing. They worked great together and were always available when we needed them and handled the transactions with extraordinary professionalism. We would work with them again and would recommend them to our closest friends and family"
~Doug and Jody S
I would highly recommend her as a realtor."
"Janet and Michele are experts and have the knowledge, skills and expertise we needed. They were savvy when helping us purchase our new home, and very thoughtful and professional when helping us market and sell our old house. We were impressed with their processes, organization and commitment. We were especially impressed by the marketing and awesome staging of our old house. Their hard work enhanced it’s marketability which resulted in a quick sale.
We would highly recommend Monteith Houle Real Estate."

"Michele was extremely helpful and patient assisting us with the purchase of our first home. She was very knowledgable about all areas in the city and gave us lots of good advice on what to look for as first time home buyers. She was always accommodating and worked around our busy schedules, making sure to not make us feel pressured or overwhelmed. We have recommended her to all of our friends and we look forward to working with her in the future."
~Antony and Jenna
"Janet and Michele were an amazing team to work with when we were searching for our house. They were so friendly and easy to talk to. They made us feel very comfortable, answering any questions we had. They were very knowledgeable of the whole buying, selling process. They didn't "push" any properties, they listened to what we wanted, and were able to suggest properties similar to what we were looking for. If we are even in the market again, we will definitely be calling Janet and Michele!"
Thanks again for everything!!
~Chris and Colleen B
"Michele Monteith, we could write quite a bit about our realtor Michele but we'll keep it simple and you will have no trouble in deciding to use her yourself.
We worked with Michele to find our dream home which we have been settling into for the last month and can't thank her enough. She's professional, knowledgeable, accommodating, reliable and on the otherhand she's honest, friendly, kind and genuine.
What more do you need from a realtor, I truly believe you're onto a winner if you call her as she'll work hard with you to ensure you get the right fit for your family/personal needs."
~Denise and Anthony. Very happy new home owners.
"We have an architectural and building practice and often deal with realtors in Calgary.We have not met realtors whose professionalism and care for their clients match Janet and Michele's. Our calls and emails were answered and addressed immediately as well as treated with an utter importance.They are responsive and know how to listen to their clients' requests. They made us feel as we were their only clients because of their outstanding dedication and words of encouragement. There is an aura of optimism and a very positive attitude characteristic for Janet and Michele. We sold our house in very difficult real estate times. It is also due to their perseverance and belief in quality of design provided.We wholeheartedly recommend Janet and Michele as your realtors for their many commendable qualities as exceptional professionals. We also hope to work with them in the future."
~Bozenna and Witek W
"Michele was very diligent and hard working. What impressed me most was her ability to quickly narrow potential selections to suit my needs. With Michele, you don’t get the feeling that you are being pushed into making a bad decision. Michele works with you to find a home that is right for you."
"Janet and Michele are an extremely professional team. Janet helped me with every step of the buying and selling process. She answered all my questions and eased my fears. Michele and Janet give 100% and I will definately use the team again."
"It has been years since we purchased our first home. Michele made our second home purchase so positive. Michele listened to our needs and wants in a property. She was very good at keeping us focused and on task. And there was never any pressure. Thanks Michele."
~Richard and Colleen L
"Janet was recommended to us by an Edmonton Realtor, her involvement with her clients is to get to know them and understand their needs. We found her availability, market knowledge and work-ethic second to none. She was easy to stay in contact with and would return emails and phone calls promptly. It was a pleasure working with her and we would highly recommend her to all potential buyers or sellers."
