Client Testimonials

Our Offices

Upon relocating to Calgary AB, I enlisted the support of Mr. Justin Havre, CIR real estate agent. Justin was very helpful throughout the entire process, demonstrating a high level of professionalism, enthusiasm and knowledge. I was impressed with Justin's patience and overall dedication to quality and service. From the first day on, towards closing the deal, the experience was a very positive one. I am definitely recommending your services to my family and friends. Thank you very much!
As first time home buyers, Justin played a major part in making our experience positive. He was always quick to respond to our questions anytime of the day and educated us very well, not hesitating to give advice where we needed it. He is great to work with, gaining our full confidence right from the start and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to buy a home.
The service and personal attention we received from Justin Havre was exceptional and unexpected from a real estate agent! Justin and his team are truly exceptional at what they do. Their knowledge of the local market and their contacts made the sale of our home easy and painless. After Justin provided us with the most recent detailed listings and sales in our neighborhood he made sure we got the best offer for our home. Regardless of whether you are buying or selling, I would highly recommend Justin Havre to help you in this life changing move. We could not have asked for a better agent to guide us through the process.
Thank you for all your help in getting our first home

Working with Marc Stokes was a pleasure. He was convenient and flexible to work with and made the whole process easy. He was kind and paid attention to our wants and needs and worked hard to meet them. He was patient and he answered all of our questions. He gave us in-depth detail about every little thing and we were constantly updated the whole time. We couldn’t have asked for a better realtor! I would 100% recommend him.


We would personally like to thank Justin Havre of CIR Realty for providing us a level of excellent service. He is a perfect example of what a successful real estate agent should be doing for each and every client. We will continue to recommend Justin to our friends. He is easily accessible by Blackberry and is promptly on time with meetings, returning phone calls, or sending out text messages. His custom based web site provided another great level of unprecedented service, keeping us up-to-date with listings, and having alerts sent right to our inbox. Justin’s custom web-service search let us know what activity was happening around the area. Monthly CREB reports gave us the facts, instead of relying on a daily newspaper article for activity reports. We have used Justin as our real estate advisor more than once and for good reason. He has always helped us negotiate the best possible deals and we remained in good confidence from hearing his advice. Thank you for all your hard work and services!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lindsay Jacobsen and 'Justin Havre & Associates' team for helping me in purchasing my first home in Canada.

Being an immigrant myself who has been living in Canada only for 2.5 years, this is a big step in my life. Initially, I had no idea about all the steps and processes required to make this purchase. I gradually learned and Lindsay guided me in every step. I am very glad that I chose Lindsay and 'Justin Havre & Associates' to represent me and fulfill this dream of mine.

Lindsay is very attentive to details. She could answer all my questions and concerns and was available all the time. She would keep all the details organized and keep me updated about the upcoming deadlines. I must say she is really hard-working and is always one step ahead.


Justin, thank you so much for all your patience and generosity. You listened to our needs, you showed us the houses we asked to view and you went above and beyond. Justin pointed out things that could come up in the future in the houses we looked at. He helped steer us in the right place for a mortgage. We would recommend Justin to our friends and family, and we will for sure be dealing with him again in the future.

Thank you again.
After being a complete hassle and totally inexperienced, the staff associated with Justin Harve was very professional in helping me and answering any questions I had. The move went through quicker than I thought possible and I couldn't be happier.  Thanks for your help!
We met Justin during an open house he was hosting in Royal Oak. My husband and I were both immediately impressed with his level of professionalism and his polished and relaxed style. He was very helpful in that he explained the background on the home, pointed out some of its features, and allowed us to explore on our own. Before we left he asked us to sign a guest book, which I particularly thought was a nice touch. Shortly after meeting Justin we asked him to come and do a property evaluation on our home as we were considering selling if we could get the right price for it. Justin prepared a top notch, professional and impressive report on our home and gave us the confidence that he really understood our community and the resale potential of our home. We listed our home with Justin and we were really impressed with his customer service. He actually called us back when we had showings and gave us the feedback in a very timely fashion. In fact, that is what sets Justin apart from any real estate agent we have worked with - he keeps his word and does what he says he will do. His listing service is top notch, which included great pictures of our home and additional marketing on his personal websites. We are happy to say our home sold for 99% of the list price in 20 days in a relatively slow market in Calgary. On the purchase side, Justin helped us find a new home in a matter of one week. He was available to show us houses, and didn't object at all when some evenings we looked 10 at a time. He was informative, offered good insight into various properties, and didn't pressure us to buy. I would highly recommend Justin to anyone who needs professional real estate advice - he is simply wonderful to work with.
When I hired Justin my house had been on the market for 3 months with no offers and very few showings. After listing with Justin I had a steady flow of traffic, feed back from showings and my house SOLD. Justin was positive throughout a very stressful situation and although he is busy, he made me feel like I was his only client. I was concerned that my listing had become “stale” but Justin had creative ideals, excellent marketing strategies and the confidence, which separates him from other real estate professionals. He was a pleasure to deal with and got the job done! I would absolutely hire Justin again and recommend him to anyone looking for a GREAT real estate agent. Thank you again Justin for ALL your help and getting my house SOLD!! I’ve settled into my new house and LOVE IT! Thanks for the advice on keeping this one! It was the right move!
Justin is a top notch real estate professional, and I'd recommend him to anyone. I was extremely impressed by the level of customer service that Justin provided, he is very busy, but yet, he made me feel like I was his only client. Phone calls and e-mails were promtly replied to, and he always followed up to see if I had any questions and to make sure I was happy. I know from experience as well as speaking with our piers that Justin's reputation is flawless - it was his professionalism and his character that closed my deal, if it wasn't for him, I'd probably would have lost out to one of the other 2 families wanting to write, but the seller gave Justin priority. I would happily work with Justin again, there's a reason why he is successful, he has a lot of happy clients!
We would like to say what a pleasure it was to work with Justin on the sale of our home in Valley Ridge. From the first time we met him we were impressed with Justin’s sincerity and professionalism. He is truly an expert on the current status of the Calgary real estate market and has a tremendous marketing approach. Our home was listed and sold within 10 days, at a price we were very happy with. If we ever need a real estate agent again, Justin Havre is our man and we strongly recommend him to anyone planning to sell a home in Calgary.
It's hard to believe but it's been one year since I bought my condo. The kitchen reno took alot of patients to get through but well worth it in the end. It turned out big and beautiful. I just wanted to say thank you for making the process so easy.
                  It all started with you Christy who introduced me Jen from there you both recommended the best team for me to work with from home inspectors to a lawyer and so one. I was so impressed by every person I dealt with. I couldn't be happier there, thank you for helping me to make it happen.
Kim Perkins

My husband and I are first-time home-buyers and we are just purchased our first home using the amazing service of Justin Havre & Associates. Our agent Benny has been nothing short of amazing through this entire process. Right from the get-go she made us feel comfortable and educated us on the city, different types of homes, and processes of home buying. She was there for us every step of the way and went above and beyond for us. Thank you Benny for helping us find our dream home!!


Justin recently helped us sell our former home and purchase a new home and helped turn a long, frustrating process into a positive experience. His insight, demeanor and patience were invaluable and helped us immensely. Justin is truly a professional real estate agent who works for his customers and not just for the quickest possible sale-something that seems to be rare these days in the age of the quickest sale possible.
Justin provided us with excellent, personalized service and we would recommend him highly to anyone looking for the best in real estate agents.

Gerry and I wanted to say a big thank you to you for all your work on the purchase of our new home and selling our other home. We were very impressed with all our dealings with you. It didn't matter where you were, you always communicated with us in a timely manner and always kept us informed. We have nothing but positive things to say about you and the other members of your CIR team, your professionalism is outstanding and appreciated. We absolutely love our new home and look forward to many years in it. Thank you and all the best to you!

Justin is an experienced, knowledgeable, and no nonsense real estate professional. His marketing skills, creativity and work ethic resulted in the sale of our house within three weeks…absolutely fantastic, given the very difficult 2009 real estate market! We appreciated the photos of our house which were professionally done and the wonderful website that showcased our home. The professionally produced booklets that were at the door as well as in the outside information box definitely helped potential buyers to view all the features of our home. Based on our experience and the results of the sale, we highly recommend Justin to anyone looking for a real estate agent!!!
Comments My family and I were more than happy with having Justin Havre as our real estate advisor. He was always flexible to meet us on short notice. He provided a range of homes for us to look at (within our budget and location). He pointed out things we would not have considered when purchasing a new house/our first house! We were able to find our dream home and negotiate an affordable price with the help of our great relator! Thanks a Million Justin :)
My Husband and I are very happy with our new condo, we call it our little palace in the sky. After seeing many properties and not being able to find a place we could call home, Justin urged us to see what he thought would be it for us and he was right. Throughout our engagement with Justin, he continually presented as friendly, professional and ever so patient with us and our quest for paradise living. We were so impressed that we referred him to a close friend in need of selling his place urgently, Justin did just that, he sold his place within 4 days of being on the market! Thanks Justin, you're the best!
Just thought I would let you know that my move went well.. Thank you so much for making this a good experience for me, and I will totally recommend you to anyone I hear of that is looking to buy or sell.
The purpose of this letter is commending Justin Havre for the exceptional service he provided to us when we recently purchased a property in Calgary. We received Justin's name and contact information from another satisfied person. Almost, immediately, after contacting Justin with the property criteria we wished to pursue, he sent several options. They were all good possibilities and we were able to quickly short list. We asked him if he could be ready for us to visit Calgary a few days later and he very graciously made time for us on short notice for a weekend. Justin made all the appointments necessary to see the properties that were available and we did so. We choose one and he immediately, that day, presented our offer and followed up promptly, even on Sunday, until we and the vendor were happy. He followed the transaction through professionally until completion. He accompanied our daughter, the purchaser, to the unit on several occasions and made himself available for all her questions, etc. as a first time buyer. We would definitely call Justin again with real estate needs and would not hesitate to recommend him to others. He always presented himself professionally, both in his actions and his relationship with us.
Thanks for your Knowledge and professionalism in showing us many homes. We really appreciated it and wish you the very best in your career. Thanks again for the lovely basket and treats.

Glenn McCormick has been patiently helping me find my first home to purchase for over 2 years! His patience, quick responses, understanding and help throughout the whole process was and is really appreciated.  The whole process, especially as a first time home buyer, can be quite daunting ....Glenn was always calm, patient, helpful and professional. Thank you :)


We were all very pleased with the handling of the condo sale.  You are very knowledgeable and professional - the fact that you use a "professional" photographer makes such a huge difference.  Thank you again for all your work.  I don't have any suggestions as to how you can improve your services - they are excellent!!

Justin Havre is an extremely talented and professional real estate agent. During our recent transaction for the sale of my house, he was able to accurately and fairly price the property for the current market conditions. After looking at other competing properties in the community, it sold for more than I was expecting and we had an accepted offer after only 8 days on the market. I believe this was a direct result of his effective marketing including professionally printed feature sheets and professionally taken photos, his incredible online marketing presence including his effective use of social media. I have absolutely no reservations in recommending Justin to anyone in the future.
Now that we are finally settled in our new home, I would like to thank you for everything you have done for us. You are both very professional and a hard worker. You clearly take pride in doing a good job. In our particular case as a buyer of a home, there were many rough spots on the road to closing and in every instance you were a great help. It would be hard to envision someone doing a better job than you or being anything but happy in choosing to work with you
Hi Justin,

Just want to thank you again for everything you’ve done. The whole buying process went smoothly and painless. As a first time buyer, there were so many things we didn’t know, however, we met you, the person who knows EVERYTHING!
We actually started our house shopping online and your website was my wife’s favorite. We found the design of the website is very user friendly and thoughtful. Probably the only website I liked in real estate area, in Alberta at least. Guess what, we found our home there!
It was the first house/condo we looked, and we liked it very much. In addition, we were very comfortable with you and your professional service. You answered all the questions we had and offered much more. As a result, we made our decision quickly. Once the bank gave us the pre approval, we made an offer.
The process of negotiation was painless as well and we were surprised that you can work remotely and still very efficient, I meant VERY EFFICIENT! Luckily, with your help, we think we got a great deal. Thank you again.
The lawyer and the condo document reviewing company you recommended to us are very nice and efficient as well. I had great experience with them too. As promised, we received the house key on the due day and everything worked out perfect!
During the whole thing, I personally think you are a good friend with great knowledge about real estate rather than a broker or agent. I still think this way. We would recommend you as the NO.1 people to other friend whenever they want to purchase a new home.
It was a great experience and we are very happy with our new home, we will keep in touch and thank you again!
Justin Havre is a blessing to the Calgary Real Estate industry. He helped my family both sell our home and purchase a new one. He was able to get us the home we had always wanted for a great price. He never wasted our time on properties that didn’t match what we were looking for. Always taking the time to listen to what we needed and what our concerns were.

When it came time to sell he made the process for us effortless. He presented our home beautifully and did a wonderful job with advertising and keeping a steady flow of traffic through the home. Justin remained available to us at all times and was always ready to assist in any way possible. He gave insightful suggestions and kept us positive through the whole process. Justin sold our home quickly and completed the sale process wonderfully.

I have recommended Justin to all my family and friends who are looking to buy or sell a home and I am confident that he will treat them in the best way as he did our family. He is a great person with great values who truly understands the importance of a home!

I selected Justin after interviewing three agents. I found him prepared, professional and well versed as to local conditions. My journey with him was brief, however, as the house sold on first showing. The whole deal was wrapped up just as efficiently as it commenced. Thanks for getting the job done Justin.
This letter is in recognition of Justin Havre of CIR Realty who was our Real Estate Agent for our Duplex properties in Airdrie. We found Justin to be the most efficient and professional Real Estate Agent we could have asked for. We feel Justin went way beyond his duties as an agent to look after our places while we were in and out of the country. It gave us a great feeling of security to know that every detail of every offer was taken care of in a professional manner. We would highly recommend Justin Havre to handle anyone's Real Estate needs.
Thanks Justin!

I am writing this to provide my recommendation in favor of Justin Havre. Justin acted as our real estate advisor when we were looking for a house. We found Justin to be an excellent real estate agent. Very diligent, thorough, and skilled. We were able to find exactly the house we wanted, at the price we wanted, in a very short period of time. Justin was very diligent helping us to setup appointments, negotiate the purchase, coordinate with banks, lawyers, builder, other agents, etc. His attitude is always positive, and he is very knowledgeable of the real estate market and the different procedures/processes related to real estate transactions. I would be very pleased to discuss this further with anyone who has any questions about Justin's services as a real estate agent. 

After deciding to sell our Beddington bi-level we phoned Justin Harve & Associates & fortunately for us "Eric Dennis" showed up. The property went up for sale on Wednesday @ 4pm, December 12th and while we at a Christmas function out of town  @ 8pm a phone call informing us there was an offer. Thursday six more showings & one more offer. The property eventually sold for $5,000.00 over list price. Not only did we sell but also purchased a condo and both deals were completed @ 9pm December 21st.  Thank you Eric. Our new hero!


Dear Justin, Lan and I would like to thank you for the great service you had provided us with regards to the sale of the Chestermere property. It was such a long and painful process but you were always there for us. You kept us in the know throughout the process by daily updates through phone or emails. You even went out of your way to make sure our rights were protected and that we had never seen or even expected from a real estate professional. Justin, we like to thank you from bottom of our hearts and for sure will recommend you to our friends and relatives.
We contacted Justin initially about listing our house. He immediately gave us an appointment date for an interview. At the interview he came prepared with an entire package that was very professionally prepared showing our house details and a comparative market analysis for homes in our neighbourhood. He carefully explained the process and fee structure for listing our home with him. He advised us on obtaining an updated Real Property Report and a recommendation for a lawyer to handle the process, if we didn't have one already. Part of his preparation included having our home photographed by a professional photographer that really highlighted all aspects of our home. He prepared us for what was required, once showing of the home started, and what to expect from other agents showing our home. We had 3 showings scheduled the first day of the listing, and accepted an offer from the first day. Justin walked us through the process of the sale, explaining the terms and conditions of the offer, the home inspection, and final release from the terms and conditions for the final sale. He kept in touch with us over the 3 month possession period to ensure all our needs were being met. We were very satisfied the Justin and his team, and would highly recommend him to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.

Justin’s use of technology and Internet marketing made both buying and selling an efficient process. Justin sold our house in one day allowing us to clear conditions on our purchase within 5 days of our offer being accepted, and for more money than similar properties in the area! Justin fully understands what is required to make deals happen, and how to price your home / make offers that will be successful in any market. I have previously sold houses by owner and can say that Justin managed to get more money for our property than I could have, without the headaches.
Angie and I would like to thank you for all your hard work, we love our new home!

These guys walk the walk. They sold my home in one of the toughest real estate markets Calgary has ever seen in just under 3 weeks...for top dollar. I'm nothing but pleased with Peter Jacobsen and the team at Justin Havre & Associates.


Justin did an excellent job of marketing our home with professional photographs, beautiful brochures, and advertising. We had numerous daily showings as a result. Justin was always easy to get in touch with and responded to our questions quickly for both the sale and purchase of the new home. We have worked with him for 3 transactions now and would do so again!
 Justin and his associates are highly knowledgeable and skilled. Thanks to them, at a time when other properties were languishing on the market for months, ours sold in no time for only a little below list price. We were very pleased with the fully professional service we received and will definitely call upon this team the next time we need to make a real estate transaction.

“Persistent Patience” that sums up our 14 month house hunt with Justin. No matter what piece of real-estate we looked at or suggested we look at Justin always reminded us of our specific criteria and to “keep the course”. We kept the course and he found exactly what we had been looking for. It may have taken some time to find our new home but he wasted no time selling our existing home. Offers came in within less than 24hrs and our home was sold for full value in less than 48hrs.
Thanks again Justin for your “Persistent Patience” and most of all your friendship.

I write on behalf of myself and my wife, Helen Uzoka , to appreciate your efforts towards the sale of our previous house located at 16 Royal Birch Crescent, NW, Calgary.

We are particularly impressed by the level of professionalism you exhibited in the whole process. This ranges from the kind of photo shoots of the house to the level of exposure you provided through the use of information and communications technology. The feature sheet produced for the property was of a very high quality. All of these generated a lot of showings for the house, which was quite impressive.

The way you handled the actual sale of the property was exceptional, especially in dealing with financing and inspection conditions.

I would gladly recommend you to any person for any real estate transaction, and we would be very please to request your services for future transactions.

I would really like to thank Chao Wang and his team for making this experience feel personal ... he really went above and beyond and rode the roller coaster with me to find the perfect home. Supportive, understanding, and really went beyond what I expected from a realtor... thank you. I LOVE MY HOME and can’t wait to move in tomorrow!!


Just thought we would let you know that our move went well.. Thank you so much for making this a good experience for us.
Moving from rented to purchasing our first Canadian house was bound to have its trials and tribulations as we are relatively new to this country. Also moving just before Christmas was certainly an interesting experience. With your help and guidance we made it. Many many thanks for your patience in putting up with us. You were always very helpful and very professional during our search for a new home.The experience was very positive and very successful due to yourself
Again, we just wanted to let you know how impressed we were from day 1 with your professionalism. And, having sold our house in less than 2 days, for more than the list price, well that just goes to show how well you excel at your job!!! It has been a pleasure working with you, and when the need comes up again, we will definitely be in touch!

My buying experience with Justin was surprisingly smooth and non-stressful. As a first time, female homebuyer I knew very little about the process involved however Justin was extremely helpful with the entire process. He took a great deal of the stress and pressure off me. I was very happy with his services as well as my new home. I would and will highly recommend his services in the future.

Justin Havre provided an excellent service in the sale of our condominium.  He responded quickly to list the property and provided excellent sales material.  He kept us informed during the process by updating us on showings and providing the feedback from prospective buyers.

Once an offer was received he quickly facilitated the negotiation and completed the sale through his up-to-date electronic tools. Throughout the process, Justin acted in a very professional manner and worked in the best interest of his client

Justin Havre came highly recommended to me by some close friends. They knew I needed an agent who was honest, professional, prompt and who knew the market into which I was selling. Justin fitted that profile perfectly. For my home appraisal, Justin came prepared with all the information I needed to feel confident about getting the correct market value for my home. A professional sales brochure of my home, along with an inviting description and excellent photography was prepared within days. This was used in conjunction with website promotion, an online virtual tour plus an open house. Within 2 weeks my house was sold. Once a sales price was agreed, the paperwork was completed on the spot. Not many real estate agents have a tablet laptop whereby you can close a deal without faxing back and fourth, this in my opinion is a smart move and a step up from other agents I have worked with. My philosophy is this: When you are buying or selling a home, you need to feel like you are the most important person in the equation, not just another 'customer'. I believe in choosing Justin, you will feel this way too.
Moving from Houston to Calgary was made easy with CIR, especially with the help of our real estate agent, Justin Havre. Our family needed to explore the city and find a community that meet our family needs. Justin was very helpful and very professional in our search for a new home and this community. The experience was very positive and very successful due to Mr. Havre.

This is a brief note to thank you for the very prompt, professional and personal service provided to us in selling our Royal Oak property. Our ability to communicate with you regarding any and all concerns along with you attention to detail gave us great piece of mind during the entire process. I will not hesitate to refer anyone we come across who is in need of your services in future! Once again thank you for everything.

Mike Hickey was our realtor when we bought our acreage and what a pleasure he was... His knowledge, expertise, and professionalism exceeded all of our expectations. It wasn't an easy process, but he made it as smooth as possible. I would recommend this beauty to anyone.


We wanted to give you an update now that we have pretty much settled in to the new house. We are so happy here and we are so glad that we located you on the internet and had you represent us in the search for a new home.

Justin your professionalism, marketing an attention to detail was extremely pleasing to us and you made our search headache free with no stress. We will be sure to recommend you to anyone we hear that may be thinking of a move. CIR reality was a pleasure to deal with and if we were ever to move again you guys would be first on our list.

Once again Thank You for making our dream come true with a beautiful home that we will enjoy for many years to come.

I have just purchased my 6th property in the community of Wentworth in SW Calgary. I was viewing some listings on mls and I saw Justin Havre's advertisement. I called him and asked him if we could meet. I was immediately impressed with his professionalism and his vast amount of knowledge in the real-estate industry as well as his knowledge in the communities that I wanted to sell and purchase a property in. I must say that in the 15yrs that I have been purchasing and selling homes Justin was by far the best, most competent, professional, real estate agent that I have ever done business with!! I would highly recommend him to everyone. He will go that extra mile for you and I truly want to emphasize this point. There were a few situations that came up in my transactions that he did just that, went that extra mile and basically saved the day. This is definitely a rare quality in business these days. Thanks Justin, I will be contacting you again for my next real-estate adventure.
Justin, thank you so much for all your patience and generosity, you listened to our needs, showed us the houses we asked you to, and went above and beyond. He pointed out things that could come up in the future in the houses we looked at. Helped streer us in the right place for a mortgage. We would recommend Justin to our friends and family, and we will for sure be dealing with him in the future. Thank you again. Rhonda and Anita
