" Joe was wonderful and I'd refer him to anyone buying or selling a home. He was very professional and taught me about future home values, neighbourhood appeal, potential pitfalls and was invested in finding a home that fit my life."
"I do not often feel the need to write testimonials, but after working with Joe I felt compelled to do so""Firstly Joe's professional attitude towards real estate and business is second to none"
"Joe works hard for you his client and those hours pay off with the correct house for you the client . When I relocated Joe did his job getting me top dollar for my old house and in finding me a new one at a good price. Joe does things better through "hard work " scanning the MLS® listing, calling REALTORS®, making appointments and showing lots of houses, Joe goes the extra mile"
"Joe is a loyal, honest person with impeccable integrity who cares about his clients, you are not just another commission to Joe, he wants to make sure you are satisfied and retain you as his client"
"His knowledge of the Calgary real estate market, building design and construction, and of the city of Calgary in general provided us with great comfort at a time when we were concurrently selling and purchasing a home"
"Joe is held in the highest regard by his peers and clients. We have recommended his services to numerous other individuals, who in turn were extremely complimentary of him both personally and professionally"
"Although, not currently active in the market Joe continues to keep us up to date with timely information and always avails himself to answer any questions that we may have."
"We look forward to working with Joe in the future"
"My self and some family members have just experience both selling a property and buying a property through Joe Viani and I cannot say enough about the integrity, professionalism and knowledge of the industry that Joe demonstrated throughout the process. Joe was always available with candid, strait forward and knowledgeable advice, that had us out of one property and into another relatively quickly in a challenging market, with what I believe was the best deal possible on both ends."
"I will not hesitate to call Joe on my next moving experience, and strongly recommend the same for others."
"We would like to say a few things about Joe Viani.”
“As it was our first time selling a home we had no real idea as to what was all involved. Joe came in and helped us through the whole process. We were on a tight timeline and he was very aware. He was always available and offered us advice when asked. He made our home available on every possible website as well as paper ads.”
“When we sold he walked us through the whole process and made it very easy. He got us the best price we could have."
"For us, the most important qualities that Joe brought to our situation was his honesty, knowledge and work ethic"
"When we sold our first house, we had bought another one first, and we were very disappointed in how our realtor represented and worked with us. At that point, we said we would never buy a house before selling first…until we met up with Joe. His honesty, understanding of the market, our situation and what our needs were, gave us the confidence to buy our next home before selling again, and the process went as well as it could!"
"Joe worked hard, kept us informed the entire way and we never regretted this transaction"
