Everyone we have talked to was impressed with the sale price of our home, 98% of the asking price is more than we were expecting. Steve, You made the experience of selling our place in Calgary as stress free as possible. Already living in Saskatchewan, and trying to sell our place in Alberta seemed like a daunting task. You were very organized and were able to provide advice, organized, arranged contractors and helped us make the sale as best as possible. You always made yourself available to us and feel like we were the only ones you were helping as you would accomodate our schedules whenever needed. Also, you were willing to go and knock on people's doors in the area we liked just to find us a place for sale in that area! Wow...talk about going the extra mile.
Steve helped us buy our first house. We were please with the service and knowledge that he offers. Steve took the time to find out what we wanted in house. As we were quite specific in what we wanted in a home, Steve took the parameters we set out and was able to find us a fantastic house that we have now made a home. An experience that was at times very stressful was made into and entertaining adventure. It was a pleasure to work with Steve. We will use him again and highly recommend him as a REALTOR®.

This is the second time I've purchased a home through Steve and have always reccomended him to others I know that are buying a home. Steve was always able to meet at a moments notice, always on time, very knowledgeable about the buying process, pointed out things in the house we didn't notice, completely organized with listings in order of showings, always had snacks & water.
- Jill and John Jensen
When we began considering purchasing our first home it was definitely nerve-racking going into it. We really knew nothing about home buying and what we were getting into. Fortunately for us, we had a fantastic REALTOR®. Steven Phillips made buying our first home a pleasurable and worry-free experience. Steven made it very clear to us what the pitfalls were, he shared with us the current market conditions and eductated us to the point where it became easy for us to decide what was good value and what was not. He also was very knowledgeable on the finanacial/legal procedures and helped us source good mortage brokers and lawyers. Also,

Steve's knowledge of home construction proved to very valuable in a few circumstances where some poor construction would have normally only been realized at the time of home inspection, which I would imagine is a heart-breaking experience if someone has their heart set on a particular home. In addition to working countless hours in the evenings and weekends to source the exact home that met our criteria, he also became a good friend in the process. Steve always went out of his way to accommodate our schedules. In the end, we purchased a beautiful home, which we feel was a terrific bargain and met our criteria perfectly. We couldn't be happier. Would we use Steven again? Absolutely, without hesitation.
I would like to thank you for helping me find my first house and being. With it being my first house, everything was new to me with the process and market and values and you explained everything very well. Thanks for the prompt returning of calls and your constant availability.
"My Fiancée and I bough our first home through Steve. He was very prompt and professional and helped us to find a home which fit both our lifestyle and our budget. I have since recommended Steve to friends and colleagues."
- Tyler and Tiff McDonald
We liked all the help you gave us and how knowledgeable you were. We recommend you to everyone that we know who may be thinking of buying or selling. Keep up the terrific work.
- Greg and Odette Flower
As a first time homebuyer I appreciated Steve's help in making the process less stressful. His patience, knowledge and professionalism was exceptional. When something wasn't going smoothly he promptly had the problem fixed. Steve went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied. I would highly recommend him to anyone buying a home. Thanks again Steve.
- Wendy Neuman
Buying our first home was an incredibly enjoyable experience, thanks to Steve. He patiently answered all of our "first time buyer" questions and informed us on issues to look for and what not to be overly concerned about. Steve was extremely flexible when it came to viewing homes and was always well prepared (with snacks and water!). Steve was a huge help throughout the entire process from introducing us to lenders, all the way to lawyers. This made the process go quick, smooth and stress free. We would recommend Steve to anyone looking to buy or sell a home.
- Shannon Fraser & Dan McNeil
Steve is a professional asset in the market, he makes the process easy and pleasureable. Will keep steve and Cir reality for future properties.
- Scott Dix
"Steve worked diligently to find properties that had exactly what we were looking for. He was open to all of our wants and needs, flexible to changes made to our preferences along the way and provided great feedback on all the questions we had about the home buying process. As first time home buy we felt very comfortable working with Steve and are extremely happy with the home he helped us purchase."
- Elliott and Katrina Ellithorpe
Both Kelsey and myself would like to thank you for your help in guiding us through our first home purchase. Your insight, guidance and recommendations on the strengths and weaknesses of potential homes and neighborhoods as well as your knowledge of pricing strategies, quality of construction and finishing’s taught us a lot about making the 'right' choice. I am however also that glad when we walked into a house that we absolutely fell in love with, you helped us to see past all the stats and industry info to make the 'best' choice we could have made.
- Nick Rasberry & Kelsey Klein
Your negotiating on the buy side was very professional and your recommendations on pricing, inclusions, exclusions and paperwork were all first class and carefully executed. Correct me if I am wrong but I think we had a deal made less than 6 hours after we saw the place.
You went out of your way to provide us with the answers to all our questions, recommended us a mortgage broker (Jim Henheffer who was also almost as great), assisted us in all phases of negotiations, helped us find a lawyer for the closing of the sale and stayed with us until the last inspection.
We look forward to referring our friends, family and neighbors to you in the future and it is with great pleasure that we write this letter of recommendation.
I found the experience to be very enjoyable. Steven's friendly professional demeanor makes him very easy to work with. Steven was also very accomodating with his availability over a long weekend for house hunting which we really appreciated.
- Brennan Leidal
- Chaince and Mel Pedersen
Steve was very attentive, and got back to us quickly on every matter and chased down more than a few items for us. We appreciated how you showed us the townhouse on holiday Monday.
- Darrell Vikse
Steve was very patient. He had good knowledge of the areas we were looking to buy and sell. Also good knowledge of the process's including what we need to do, what the seller needs to do, what the lawyers will do ect....
- Clint and Nancy Richardson
Steve is easy to get along with..strong market knowledge.

We would like to thank you for your help.
Steve was my REALTOR® for 6 months, during which we were battling both tough market times for selling, and my indecisive nature for
- Bryan Tutty
buying. Steve helped me by making my property more attractive to potential buyers, and by leading me to a conclusion on what I was
looking for in a new home. Fair prices were negotiated in both selling and buying, and I'm very happy in the new condo Steve helped me find and buy.
Working with Steve was a pleasure from start to finish. Steve was recommended to be from a friend and I would highly recommend him to anyone. Steve was very patient and was always accommodating. He would pick me up to go view condos from anywhere and at a time that was convenient for me. I am a first time buyer so Steve’s patience, guidance and knowledge were extremely helpful in making the process go very smooth. Thanks for your help Steve!
- Ryan Swelin
"We received excellent service from Steve in both the sale of our house and the purchase of our new house. For our sale, he provided continous feedback on what potential buyers had thought of our house and suggestions on how we could improve the saleability of it. As well, he worked especially hard to negotiate the deal for the sale of our house. With respect to our purchase, he was always accessible and willing to work around our schedule so that we could view the properties we were interested in. As well, he was very knowledgable about the homes, including areas that may need improvements and structural deficiencies of the properties. Steve was extremely professional and accommodating, and we highly recommend Steve as a REALTOR®!"
- Celeste Hutchinson and David Smalls
As a person who RARELY ever makes recommendations as I have found them almost always to come back and bite you, I had to write to you and thank you personally Steve. Knowing that you have only taken on the journey of pursuing a real-estate career over the last couple years, I was truly amazed at both your professionalism, tenacity, and ability to ensure that we knew all aspects of the transactions throughout the purchasing and selling procedures. It was a true blessing to be able to use you not only to find the perfect home for our family, but also to be able to sell our existing home in a remarkably short period of time. Your market research, ability to put all the "legal-eeze" into plain English for us to understand, and your never-give-up attitude made what can be a rather hectic event turn into a joyous journey. We have already recommended you to several people whom we have connections with, and will for sure use you again for our next purchase. You are a true professional at your trade Steve! Keep up the great work and we look forward to working with you again soon.
- Scot and Denise Lane
We were first time home buyers and Steven made sure to listen to what we wanted and only showed us homes that had these qualities. He helped us find the perfect house. He was very hopeful throughout the whole process.
- Clint and Nancy Richardson
"Although buying our first single family home together was very exciting, it was also a little scary. He sold our condo so quickly, it left us feeling a bit under the gun. He put us at the top of his priority list and was eager to show us as many properties as we needed. Not only willing to show us exactly what we asked for, he added his knowledge and experience to find us a range of homes to view. He was very patient while we visited a selection of homes and sometimes twice! We are in love with our house! Bad news for Steve though, we won't need him for a long, long time......"
- Suzanne & Jason
Thanks again Steve! We love our house!
"Steven did an excellent job as my REALTOR®, I would highly recommend working with him. He took the time to understand exactly what I was looking for in a condo and he was very meticulous and diligent in his search to find me just that. I have now moved into my new condo and honestly could not be happier with it, it is exactly what I was looking for!"
- Michelle Jensen
Steve was very thorough when scoping out potential homes for us and very patient given how picky were were and
- Josh Yarker and Shireen Bond
how narrow our new home criteria was. We're glad that he opened our minds up to expanding our search to the
West Side of Calgary. We have found the perfect home for our family! We liked Steve's knowledge of construction
and appreciated him working around my families timeline.
- James and Chelsie
When we were selling Steve kept us informed of the current competing market and of the interest in our property. You did a great job! Thankx!
- Reg and Dina
I felt no pressure to buy, and Steve was very patient with all of my "new buyer" questions.
- Amanda Rose
Steve made our first home buying experience very easy and took all of the fear of owning our first home away. He helped us figure our what our budget was and then found us a home that had everything we were looking for and was still within our budget. He was very patient with us and reassured us that once we found the house we would know. Steve was a great asset when it came
to the offer process and even missed a playoff Flames game to help us seal the deal.
Thanks Steve for the great experience.
As out-of-province buyers, we had allotted ourselves one week in which to search for and hopefully find a building which met our housing requirements in Calgary. Selecting Steven Phillips as our Real Estate Agent was a fortuitous choice. He worked tirelessly with us to help to refine our search and quickly find a property within our price range, location and specifications.
- Dan & Anne Finch
Steven was very personable and professional. He was proficient at enabling us to verbalize our impressions, and he used those conversations to further streamline the hunt.
When questioned about specific structural issues in homes we were viewing, Steven’s previous work experiences in the construction industry aided him in making invaluable observations and assessments.
He was also eager to learn more and appeared genuinely grateful of any information or insights we could share about housing.
We appreciated the honest, friendly, and dedicated service he provided to us. I happily recommend Steven Phillips as an excellent, committed and caring REALTOR®.
Steven did an excellent job, I appreciated his friendly manner and availability.
- Patricia Boychuk
Our selling and buying experience with Steve was efficient and effective. I like that we communicated through modern means (text messaging, email, website, etc) this meant that I wasn't "wasting" my entire day on the phone. All in all it was a good experience. Thanks Steve.
- Joshua Ross
Working with Greg was the best choice we made in the home buying process. He took the time to truly understand what we were looking for in our first home, and answered all of our first-time buyer's questions thoroughly. Greg brought strong negotiating skills to the table when we made our offer, and we couldn't be happier with the end results in our first house." Top Qualities: Great Results, Personable, Good Value

When having found myself in a situation to have to quickly purchase a home, I took a shot in the dark by contacting an agent online and it proved to be exceptional choice. My whole experience with purchasing my new home and using Steve as my agent was positive. I am very happy with my new home and feel Steven was instumental in helping me find that perfect place which meet my high expectations and standards and was still within my budget. Words I would use to describe Steven would be professional, honest, knowledgeable, considerate, flexible, accessible, caring, understanding, down to earth, patient, just to mention a few... I would highly recommend Steve Phillips to any one considering buying or selling a home. If I were asked to grade him, it would be an A+!
- Diane Lindblad
You were really efficient in getting together and seeing the houses I wanted to see and were able to get ahold of if I needed to to ask you something. You were very honest and giving your opinion and what was good for me in buying my house, thanks so much! You were really good to work with and would definatly recomend you.
- Sheila Kabatoff
Steve was very professional, and very well informed about the market. He considered my needs as a buyer and went above and beyond to ensure that we found the perfect place. He made the whole experience enjoyable!
- Tara Simmons
Steve Phillips is a quality professional who has your best interests in mind. He is not looking for a quick sell, rather he really wants to find a place that best suits your needs. I would recommend him to anyone that is in the market to buy or sell.
- Ryan Pauls
My experience with CIR Realty was truly an enjoyable one. Steve Phillips was recommended by a friend and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to buy property. When I first contacted Steve I told him I was only interested in watching the real estate market for a couple of months, so he immediately set me up with (name of program?) and I had property updates emailed to me on a daily basis. Once I decided I was ready to start looking at properties, the numerous property viewings began. Steve was always on time and would offer to pick me up any location that was convenient for me. He would always provide me with a copies of the property information which was sorted in the order of the properties we were viewing. We would even nickname each property so we had a fun way to reference the properties (i.e.: kitchen of wonder and backyard beauty). We viewed over 30 properties and with each viewing Steve kept my interests and needs in mind (i.e.: showing me properties within my price range and with the features I was looking for). When it came time to make an offer, Steve coached me through the process and was there to answer all of my questions. Steve supported me through the entire purchasing process, from recommending mortgage brokers to legal representatives to welcoming me into my new home. Thank you for the excellent service Steve!
