Buyer Services


It starts with a confidential consultation.

Buying a home is one of the biggest financial decisions a person or family will make during their lives.  Our REALTORS® at SCHMIDT are trained professionals who can provide consultative advice and support while helping you successfully navigate this exciting process.  The first and perhaps most important step in the entire buying process is the initial consultation with your Schmidt Realty Group REALTOR®.  This is a no-obligation meeting where we will listen to you as you share your “wish list” with us.  Together we will identify your wants, needs and housing budget.  Then we will take an initial look to see what is on the market that might suit you.  We will ask you some helpful questions, and we will really listen to your answers.   At the end of the meeting, we will each have the opportunity to decide if we are a good match to work together to achieve your goals.  This meeting will form a solid foundation for a successful purchase.  It is our goal to be your trusted real estate advisor. Establishing a consulting relationship with your REALTOR® is an important step, but there is a lot that happens between making your “wish list” and moving day.  As a client of Schmidt Realty Group, you will receive our Home Buyer’s Guide and information on current market activity.  Your REALTOR® will walk you through the entire purchase process step by step so you will be well prepared when you find the property you want to purchase.

“This was our first home buying experience and you made it great! Everything was explained step by step.”
~ Leah Blanchard

We’ll make sure you stay on top of the market!
You will hear about new listings daily via email, or if you prefer your REALTOR® will screen all MLS listings and recommend only the best for you.  We will review recent sales to assess the market value of your chosen property to ensure you make a well informed decision and provide you with the latest market statistics and real estate trends that may affect you.


“We could always count on you for an honest and straightforward answer to our concerns. Your enthusiasm during our searching & purchasing experience helped to keep us focused and positive.”
~ Elissa and Lawrence Barron

We’ll be there when you need us!
You can reach us easily by phone, pager, email or text messaging.  Plus our brokerage is staffed from 9AM-9PM weekdays and 9AM-5PM Saturdays and Sundays.  You will be able to speak with someone when you need us!  We also have a unique set-up in our office where we have one of our REALTORS® available to assist should your personal REALTOR® be temporarily unavailable.  We do believe in taking a day off a week in order to stay fresh and sharp, and also the moment you need us it is possible that we are in the middle of negotiating a success offer for another client.  Another team member will ensure that your needs are met!  

“My REALTOR® was outstanding!  I would recommend SCHMIDT
to anyone I met who wants to purchase a home.”
~Angela O

We’ll help you negotiate a smart deal!
A successful negotiation requires knowledge, experience and creativity on the part of your representative.  Your REALTOR® will advise you on the optimal strategy in each unique situation and will always be in your corner.  We won’t let you make a mistake! 




We’ll make sure you’re satisfied every step of the way!
Everything we do is done with your satisfaction in mind.  However, should you decide at any point that you would prefer alternate representation, our “Easy Exit Guarantee” allows you that choice.   It’s what we’d want if we were the customer, and we put it in writing!

We’re proud of our results and are confident you’ll be so happy with our service that you refer us to your friends and family!

Buyer Representation
It’s now law in Alberta (as of July 1, 2014), for all buyers to have a Written Service Agreement with their Realtor. At Schmidt, we’ve always treated our buying clients with the same care and respect as we do our sellers, and have worked with written buyer agreements for years.  A written service agreement simply makes sure that you understand the role of your Realtor and what you can expect from him or her in terms of service.  At Schmidt, we offer all our buyers our “Easy Exit Guarantee” as well, so while we put a contract in place with our buying clients, you are always in control. Click here for more information from the Real Estate Council of Alberta. 

P.S. – When you work with SCHMIDT, you are always in control.  Thanks to our unique “Easy Exit Guarantee”, you’re free to cancel your buyers agreement with us at any time.  No strings attached.  Click here for a sample of our “Easy Exit Guarantee” for buyers.
