An amazing job
Sam Oschewski did an amazing job helping us sell our old house and buy a new one. Not only did his expertise save us thousands of dollars, but he was always available to explain every part of the process and guide us through it. Moreover, his network of skilled mortgage brokers and property appraisers made the experience seamless. We will definitely use Sam's services again and strongly recommend him to anyone looking for housing in Calgary.

Sam brought the right people
Everyone seemed to be building & selling homes so we thought that we would get in on the action, the only thing we didn't account for was the challenge of selling the home. Apparently the old adage "build it and they will come" does not apply to custom homes in Calgary. So rather than drop our price, we engaged Sam to help Market the home and he did just. Sam brought the right people to tour the home and he helped us sell it for fifty thousand dollars more than we were asking.

Sam took the time to understand what was important
Work brought us to Calgary and Sam helped welcome us like one of the white hat volunteers at the Calgary airport. Once we knew we were relocating, Sam took the time to understand what was important to our family and what we were looking for in a home, a community, schools and so-on. When we arrived in Calgary with a only limited amount of time to learn the city and find a home before our move date, Sam had planned and combined a weekend that included a complete tour of the city and an introduction to several communities and homes that fit our needs like a glove.

If buying and selling a home is one of the top stresses in life, Sam just removed it from the list! We had outgrown our condo and wanted to move into a home. Sam spent the necessary time with us to understand what we were looking for in a new home, what we needed out of our condo and how to insure that the transition was a seamless process.

Really knocked this one out of the park
I recently moved and had to sell my inner-city Calgary condo in short order so I could use the funds towards a timely purchase in Toronto. Unfortunately my Calgary condo was not CMHC insured which limited the number of eligible buyers. This didn't concern Sam, he quickly developed a profile of candidates and sold my condo. Sam really knocked this one out of the park for me and I know he can do it for you too.

What more could you ask for
We couldn't find the right home in the right community so we turned to Sam for assistance. Sam helped us find and purchase an undeveloped lot on which to build our dream home. Never having done this before, we depended heavily on Sam for direction in all aspects of the process and he exceeded all of our expectations. Sam helped us get the right lot, in a desirable neighbourhood, in a sellers market, without any headaches and at a fair price – what more could you ask for.
A true expert
Sam is a true expert on the real estate market in Calgary, particularly the inner city. As out-of-towners who were not familiar with the housing market, Sam made us feel very comfortable and was always accessible to answer any questions big or small. He is a straightforward, trusted advisor and his patient approach to helping us explore the market really helped us find the right house for us. And once we decided on our house, it was great to have Sam on our side! He helped us get a fair deal, and guided us through the whole process. Beyond our new house, Sam has also been really helpful on a personal level by providing us with introductions to people who can speak about what is was like to move to Calgary. We are very happy with Sam's high level of professionalism and service and will definitely work with him again in the future.

Really enjoyed our experience
We really enjoyed our experience working with Sam Olschewski. Not only did he sell our house in just over two weeks and helped us to buy a new house that we love, he is hard working and committed to his clients. He works hard to get a deal done and never misses a deadline or an important step. He was always available and returned calls promptly. What we felt was his greatest strength was his knowledge about the housing industry and builders in the Calgary area. Hopefully we won't be moving any time soon, but we would not hesitate to call Sam again or recommend him to our family and friends.

Easy listing process
In the past year, Sam sold two properties for our family. In addition to helping make the listing process easy, Sam anticipated and answered all of our questions and he was always available when required. Sam’s understanding of market conditions and his ability to effectively communicate with buyers and their agents, particularly when it was time to “close” was invaluable. Sam insured that we realized our objectives in a timely and painless manner.

Fantastic to work with
Sam was fantastic to work with. He was very informed about market conditions and gave us succinct points to consider when we were confronted with options. He was attentive to our needs for showings and worked with the other agents when we really needed him to (we had a 4 month old during the listing). He is also a very skilled negotiator and we were very happy with how he handled the process and the outcome. We would definitely recommend him to any of our friends and family or any one for that matter!

A Pleasure to work with
We have had the pleasure of working with Sam over the last 3 years. We found Sam to be very professional with a vast knowledge of the market. Being experienced developers, but only recent arrivals to Calgary, we appreciated that he took the time to introduce us to new competitive markets as yet unknown to us. Sam was also able to deliver varying solutions to our needs because of his large circle of influence and his experience and creativity in thinking outside of the norm. We enjoyed working with Sam and felt that we were being taken care of all the time. We appreciated the constant updates and regular communications. We will definitely keep doing business with Sam and would recommend him to anyone who is looking for personalized care for either buying or selling.
Professional and Knowledgeable
Sam's professional approach, combined with his market knowledge and research made him very easy to work with, and gave us a good starting point. His insight and understanding of what was a niche market proved key in the offer and negotiation process.
