We recently had the privilege of working with Mark Aben during our search and purchase of our home/cottage on Lake Vernon in Huntsville. Our journey began about two years prior as we started to get a feel for the Huntsville area and refined our needs to fit our budget. Over this time Mark was very patient, knowledgeable about the section of each lake during the summer and whether the location would be winter friendly. He was thorough in his research about each place and without any pressure helped us sort out the pros and cons. He was knowledgeable about the technical aspects of each home. He was also very good at analyzing the relative values and fair market assessments. He always followed up after each showing with the listing agent. During the offer process, he was very professional, knowledgeable and capable to handle any of the issues, which arose. He was also able to connect us with the varying trades/professionals we would need to complete our purchase, to protect our home going forward and to handle some immediate repairs/renos. Mark made the process fun & enjoyable, mitigating any stress with his calm and professionalism. We can highly recommend Mark & the Aben team to handle your search and purchase journey. Thank you Mark & John. We are thrilled with our new home and are very grateful for your help.

Jane & John M. Client

The family vacation property was in the family over 40 years and when we decided to sell we signed on with the Aben team to help sell. John and his team were fantastic and did everything right. They made a great on-line video including drone footage that showed the cottage to potential buyers on line, they sent a weekly marketing report and send us e-mail alerts whenever a showing occurred. When an offer came in John and his team was right there assisting us with the negotiations and the closing. We are very satisfied with the service and professionalism of the Aben team and highly recommend them to anyone.

Paul and Leo O. Client

John’s friendly and professional manner put me at ease instantly as I began the process of selling my riverfront home. He was consistently resourceful and helpful, sensitive to my unique needs; and I was impressed how accurately he gauged the market regarding selling price. Along with Mark they made the whole process seamless. They guided me through each step and I was amazed how quickly my house sold in their capable hands. I would recommend this team without hesitation.

At Harvey Kalles Real Estate, we appreciate that real estate is about so much more than the bricks and mortar that make up our houses. It’s also about the neighbourhoods within which we live, the outdoor spaces we enjoy, the cultural centres we visit, the service providers we rely upon, and the heritage we preserve.
