“I first contacted Erik several years ago about a property he had listed close to a home I owned in
Southview. He was always quick to respond to my emails. He was never pushy with me and in fact,
I had to ask him to list the house. He did a really good job for me and did everything I expected.
He’s a very easy person to get along with, looks the part and knows his stuff. I had my own lawyer
but he put me in touch with a survey company. He isn’t one of those here today and gone tomorrow realtors.
The house I listed with Erik had an offer in less than two weeks. I highly recommend hiring Erik as your realtor.”
Carly & Erik
“Erik van der Linden is someone I’d recommend enthusiastically. We were so impressed
with his knowledge of the local areas as well as his insight into what makes a good investment.
He carefully took into consideration everything we said we wanted in a home as well as what kind of
investment we hoped for and found us our perfect home. He was honest and we always felt he took the
interest of all of his clients to heart. Erik is skilled at matching all clients to their unique needs.
Not only can he find a buyer and the right home, but he knows who he is looking for to buy your home. You know
in the end you will find the resolution you need in the time you need it. He went above and beyond to help us.
We were new to this and felt comfortable to be in such good hands. He gave us all the tools we needed and more to buy a
home. He works hard and always seems to be available as you need him. We feel we were given the best customer service
and we made a great friend out of it!”
Monica & Troy
“Erik is an amazing realtor. I trust him completely. He made promises he could deliver.
He was honest and helpful and always there when we needed him. Didn't matter if it was a
stupid question he gave us his all. He gave 110 percent. For sure to use him in every move
we have. Erik has made our dreams a reality and we are forever grateful for his time and
Rob & Maria
“When we were looking for our home Erik's primary concern was making sure that we found the one
that was right for us. He was very responsive and available to go over concerns. We have used Erik
in multiple transactions, and whether it was a purchase or sale, Erik was always there to advocate for us."
"We have found Erik to be a rare gem in an industry known for false and slick operators. He has worked with us for several
years and we continue to recommend him to friends looking to purchase or sell. Erik has a wonderful low-key style and incredible
patience when it comes to viewing houses. We appreciate Erik's input and initiative to find us just what we're looking for.
Erik keeps current with real estate news and forecasts so is very knowledgeable about what is happening in the Calgary area.
Most important for us, he has hands-on experience with renovating, so can always point out potential pitfalls or future lucrative gains.
It is a pleasure to highly recommend Erik if you're buying or selling your home!"
“I met Erik through another of his satisfied clients and immediately recognized and appreciated his knowledge of
the Calgary real estate market. One of the things we value most about Erik’s service is his ability to recognize a
good business opportunity by seeing the potential of a home to be transformed. We were also very satisfied with the
lawyer and house inspector Erik connected us with. We will continue to do business with Erik for our future business
ventures in real estate. I have recommended Erik’s services to friends in the past and would do so again in the future.”
Candace & Les
“Erik was very knowledgeable about not only the local market, but the market in the Calgary region too.
He was excellent at anticipating our needs and how they related to the real estate market as a whole. With
Erik's suggestion to seek out a new mortgage broker, as well as connect us with some insurance brokers we were
able to get into the house we wanted. We feel that Erik takes his clients wants and needs into account at all
times- at no point did we feel any pressure, and we felt secure and confident through our entire selling and
purchasing process. Erik's knowledge and connections in the construction industry made us feel confident that
he wholeheartedly understands real estate, and it's ever changing nature. We have since learned that numerous
friends and acquaintances have decided to use his services, and will most definitely recommend and seek his
assistance in the future.”
Russel & Laura Mcintyre
“Erik was very knowledgeable about the property that we listed and finding out the values of the properties around it.
Erik was very professional and punctual when working with us. I especially enjoyed his quick responses to our emails and
phone calls. I would highly recommend Erik!”
“We were referred to Erik by a friend who couldn't stop talking about how good he was, and we quickly found out why. Everything from Erik's knowledge, service, responsiveness and care impressed us. He asked us for what we were looking for and he went and found the right properties to look at in a challenging market, he answered our hundreds (if not thousands!) of questions patiently and really made this an easy, seamless process. We didn't have to shop around as Erik knew excellent service professionals at the right rates - his network in the industry is widespread.
It's tough to single out one aspect over the other as Erik's experience and knowledge combined made the whole buying process a fun and pleasant one. I would gladly refer Erik to any of our friends in a heartbeat.”
Dania & Etienne
“Erik came highly recommended. He was easy to work with, easy to reach at anytime (day/evening). He is personable, friendly,
and honest regarding some properties he felt were better than others. His honesty was also appreciated when we were looking at properties
that weren't necessarily in a safe neighborhood, even though it would have been easy for him to get a quick sale from us because we thought
the place would do. He kept encouraging us even though we became discouraged at times by our searches and kept us on track with hopes that
there was something out there that was meant to be! His knowledge about different areas of the city, builders and current market trends are things we appreciated.”
Sig & Pauline
“Me and my wife were put in touch with Erik by another Real Estate Agent that was unable to accommodate us during our tight time frame,
due to prior commitments. We are very glad we took her up on her recommendation! Erik is very personable, professional and easy to communicate with.
His technical knowledge is deep, broad and extremely helpful in all areas of construction for both resale homes of various ages and new homes.
No question was left unanswered! After working with Erik and finding our perfect home we took his advise on other local professionals such as
Mortgage and Insurance Brokers. They all turned out to be fantastic and made sure all our needs were met, just as promised by Erik. When the
time comes to move on to a different home we would not think twice or have to discuss who to call, it would definitely be Erik!”
“Being from out of Province, I had a lot to learn about buying a house in the Calgary area. Upon my arrival to Alberta I sought out a realtor to begin the process of buying a home for my family and I. As many do I let my fingers do the walking...and as luck would have it, they brought me right to Erik van der Linden.
From the very start Erik projected a professional yet supportive attitude. Always very informative and candid; Erik shared his honest opinions and supplied much appreciated background about each of the areas we considered buying in. His positive attitude and willingness to accommodate our schedules completely removed the stress normally associated with searching for a new home.
Fast forward three years...now in a position to recommit to a home purchase in this area, I called Erik and let him know I was in the market and asked if he'd represent us. His response immediately reinforced my decision - enthusiastic, personable and ready to go.
Ultimately opportunities abroad presented themselves and my wife and I decided to rent (unsure that we would be staying in Calgary). Erik was completely understanding and wished us the best despite the considerable amount of time and effort he had already invested in us as clients.
We met the next week and I gave him the particulars. He short listed some options for us and in no time at all I was signing the contract for our new home in Coopers Crossing. Were it not for Erik and his intimate knowledge of the market in Calgary, Airdrie and surrounding communities I may easily have settled for a lesser property.
In the end Erik found us a great home, got us in it at a price we can afford, he even directed me to a fantastic lawyer who represented us on this very deal. I'm typically not comfortable doing testimonials but Erik's really earned this one and my respect. Given the chance to work together again...my next home purchase will be with him too.”
Tony & Sydney
“I had the pleasure of meeting Erik in 2002 when I contracted him to renovate my basement, the results were outstanding. Erik's knowledge and opinions on floor plans and requirements were invaluable and helped our family design a functional space in our basement.
Over the years we have gone to Erik for all of our real estate needs, whether it was buying or selling, for both our own homes and investment properties. What has impressed us the most with Erik is his patience and immense knowledge of the market, his prompt response time and ability to respect what we were looking for while providing advice to help us make the best decision for our family.
The professionals he has suggested, such as lawyers, mortgage brokers, home inspectors, etc. have always been extremely knowledgeable, professional and helpful. Being able to use his colleagues in the process of buying and selling has made the experience that much easier for us.
To this day we continue to consult Erik regarding any real estate advice and will continue to do so in the future. His experience and knowledge have been invaluable to us and throughout the years we have developed a fantastic personal relationship with him. Whenever possible we refer friends, family and colleagues to Erik because we know he will give them the best experience possible.”
