What My Clients Are Saying
When we were faced with the difficult task of selling our first house, Ana was recommended to us by a friend who had just sold their house with her amazing help the year before – and said they would use her again in a heartbeat! It was one of the smoothest transactions we have ever been through. Upon first meeting, her friendly personality and knowledge of the market were only a few of the many reasons why we knew she was the realtor for us! Ana kept in touch often and was very thorough through the entire process. Ana made sure she knew exactly what we wanted, and was always professional, open and honest about everything going on (good or bad). Overall a fantastic experience; we would highly recommend giving her a call for any of your real estate needs!
Thanks again for everything Ana.

We used Ana Mcfadyen to help us find and buy a location for our new commercial venture. We ended up settling on a heritage mixed use home that we have since converted for the business. Ana Mcfadyen was an absolute joy to work with. Her attention to details, market intelligence and trouble shooting for her clients is unparalleled. Ana is always the professional and works hard to understand and then execute on the needs of her clients while having a pulse on the local market. She is a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend her for any real estate transactions.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Ana! Her research was impeccable and our pricing was bang-on. Our house went from listing, to conditions waived and done-deal in six days, and we got the top dollars for our house!She was always there to answer questions and lend a hand with a smile on her face. In addition to helping us get our house ready, she helped us with recommendations for other services and even made us a healthy dinner one night when we didn't have time. We highly recommend Ana for the great service she provides!
Ana is a one of a kind individual. There is a saying that a good friend and colleague is some one you can't remember exactly when you first met. And so it is with Ana. We served together on some committee work and that was where, to the best of my recollection, we first met. I was impressed from the very start with the way Ana always put her full energy into all that she did and for that reason when I decided to sell my home in Okotoks there was no question that my first and only one was to ask her to act as my realtor. She has spent countless hours guiding me along what can be a stressful situation when selling my home. My home sold in less than 2 weeks and one of the major reasons was that she put her full professional energy into the process, often sacrificing family time and other commitments, I have no hesitation in recommending Ana if you want a quality professional with a great smile and a positive attitude. In selling my house she made that her number one priority. I have been blessed to have that commitment.
Having spent the best part of 25 years serving for the Royal Canadian Air Force, I am painfully aware of the difficulties and pitfalls of both buying and selling a home. I recently found myself retired and renting a property in Okotoks. Our decision to rent was purely a means to find the location where we would settle and live out our lives.
After some rather unpleasant issues with our rental property we chose to break our lease and buy a home. As usual, it began with visiting a few open houses and on our very first one we met Ana. We were immediately taken by her warmth and sense of humor. Over the next few weeks we had sporadic contact as we didn't want to commit to anything or anyone until we were pre-approved. We did however ask Ana for help finding a lender. She gave us 3 recommendations. It went flawlessly.
Now pre-approved and certain that Ana would represent us in the best possible way, we set about pestering Ana to find a home. We had her search for homes in multiple communities that were within our desired budget and we were not disappointed. We did our research on the recommended properties and arranged for several showings over our first full weekend of hunting. We saw a total of 7 homes and saved what we thought was the best for last. Ana never once made an attempt to push our budget and respected our selections. We made an offer as quickly as possible as the last house was considerable better than expected and with Anas guidance and experience it was accepted on the first bid.
With all inspections complete and no trouble in site we now look forward to moving into our new home and continuing a solid friendship with Ana in the future. I couldn't recommend a more dedicated and customer oriented Realtor. You wont be disappointed!!
Before putting house for sale, it is important to know how to maximize the value of your home. Once we found a house that we have been looking for a long time, we purchased it right away and then Ana listed our house. At the time we listed our house, a lot of other houses came up that we were directly competing with. Ana's pricing was right on the money, and with her tools and knowledge we were able to position it to be #1 property in Drake Landing. We were expecting to sell it within the 10 days, but that did not happen because in our price range we were competing with brand new homes as well, and 3 other houses on our street, one was also a foreclosure. She would follow up with me after every showing, and kept putting the numerous hours into market and price analysis.
She applied the most amazing pricing technique, and while I was camping she got 2 very serious offers and we sold our place for more than we were hoping for! If it were not for her hard work and constant tweaking of the listing, our listing would have been forgotten among a bunch of others.
I was introduced to Ana by working together on an Active Community Engagement Committee. Her enthusiasm and smile were infectious and we developed an instant rapport.
She is a stickler for details and an excellent gatherer of the facts. When my wife, Kathy and I approached her with the idea of selling our house, she went to work immediately!
An easy to comprehend, but complete presentation package outlining her services, was delivered to us with zero expectation.
Once we made the decision to list our property Ana got busy doing her homework and enlisting the assistance of a professional stager. That experience and introduction proved immensely informative at pointing out areas that needed to be addressed to maximize value and highlight the unique benefits of the home.
Anas market analysis and pricing proved to be bang on as we received a conditional offer within two days of the listing and 1% of our asking price!
Bottom line is that Kathy and I would not hesitate to recommend Ana to others for their real estate needs!
We got in touch with Ana through her website. Interesting enough when we met her, it showed that we had more commonalities than we expected.
We first requested that she sets us up on search, because at the time we were living in Manitoba. With her search we were able to select 5 houses to view, and when we came one weekend to purchase home we made and offer and bought a house.
The house we made and offer was listed by the Owner, but Ana happened to know them and it sure made purchasing easier.
After the sale Ana stayed in touch with us, and has connected us with clubs that she is member of: Rotary and Okotoks Network. Today we work together on community projects.
After all Ana makes real estate transactions easy and smooth, but most importantly she stays in touch with her clients, helps them adjust and connect in the new community. Great job Ana!
Ana is very detailed, hard working and knowledgeable real-estate agent. We like how she stayed in touch with us and gave us updates every week. Also, she carefully screened potential buyers, so we sold our house only having to go through 13 showings, unlike some houses in our neighborhood that had to go through 63. She has used her various skills to make necessary adjustments to bring us to very successful sale at the end.
Her enthusiasm and caring nature makes selling process easier to deal with. I would recommend Ana McFadyen to all my family and friends without any hesitation.
