Liv Real Estate was founded in 1975 and was originally known as KW Real Estate, named after its founder Ken Johnson. The real estate brokerage firm handles mostly residential properties.

Their website is like most others in the space, where you get listings categorized by things like property type, property status, location, etc.   They also have the usual pictures of the neighborhood, interior, and exterior of the property.

What sets their site apart from others, though, is that viewers can get a 360 view of each property. This can give you a nice sense of the property’s features that goes beyond what typical photos offer.

For buyers, they also have a mortgage calculator and a mortgage pre-approval program. For sellers, they have a free market analysis and pricing tool.

Liv Real Estate also pays special attention to first-time buyers. For newbies, they have personalized consultation sessions to give you the basic information you need to get started.

Pros

  • 3D interior viewing of listings
  • Plenty of tools for both buyers and sellers
  • Complete information on each realtor

  • Only caters to residential properties

Corey responded to texts or phone calls within minutes and often called or texted to check in with me. If I had questions he couldn’t answer, he would direct them to the sellers’ agent promptly. Friendly, I never felt any pushy sales dynamics.”

The Foundry Real Estate Co. is a relatively young real estate firm established in 2013.  Founder Marc McMahon and his associates were working with the industry when they noticed that real estate agencies often take advantage of their clients.

This drove them to build their firm based on trust and transparency with clients, they claim. Their tagline is even “We advertise your home, not our face”.

The Foundry Real Estate Co. lists its properties via their website Best Edmonton Home Search. Their listings are sorted by the usual categories: price, residential property type, number of beds, etc.

Some of their listings on their site also have virtual tours so you can check them out without leaving the comfort of your home. That’s another thing we appreciated about them!

Aside from their young, fresh, and straightforward approach to real estate brokerage, what sets this firm apart is its charity drive.

The Foundry Real Estate Co. has partnered with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and the Earth Group to give back through their #Homeroom Initiative. For every transaction made, The Foundry Real Estate Co. donates to chosen charities.

The money donated is used to provide food, water, and education to a child identified. The donation will also be on behalf of the buyer or seller.

Pros

  • Straightforward and no-nonsense
  • They donate to charity
  • They ensure transparency in contracts and negotiations

Cons

  • The team is small
  • Limited selection of services

Customer Reviews

There are a lot of good reviews for Foundry Real Estate Co.’s services. Here are some of them:

“I would highly recommend Bruno at The Foundry! We were reluctant to work with any realtor based on previous experience but Bruno quickly proved to be professional, knowledgeable, and valuable to our home search. He KNOWS homes and it was enjoyable to look at houses with him. He is personable, responsive, flexible, fact-based, and goes above and beyond in so many ways. He is also an excellent negotiator. The Foundry is changing the game for real estate professionals and we will happily be using them again to sell our house in the spring.

-Sharon

“Great company with great customer service. I dealt with Nicolas MacDonald. He is very professional, honest, and responsive with every question I had in mind, I enjoyed dealing with him.”

Customer Reviews

Customers particularly loved their experience working with MaxWell Realty Canada. Read about their reviews here:

“Jennifer Erick is the best decision we took when we decided to go with a Realtor. As first-time Home-buyers in Canada, we had so many questions and concerns. Jennifer took the time to explain everything to us to a T. She wasn’t only here for us during the purchase, but also afterward. She always kept her word and followed up on each topic that we discussed or questions that we had. If you’re in the market for a property and have as many questions as we did, Jennifer is the realtor to go to. You’re in excellent hands. We couldn’t be happier about our purchase and how smooth the process went.”

-Adison

“I recommended Angela Krause to my coworker because I had a great experience! She is very patient and informative. I was comfortable throughout the whole process and found a great home! Thanks, Angela!”
