Parry and Josy
We started looking at homes a few months ago, and were looking at MLS for open houses, etc. Parry met Bryan and thought he was thorough, knew the market, and had expressed his willingness to show us more homes if we would like and soon after we began our regular house hunting meetings with Bryan. He is so friendly and easy to talk to, knows the Calgary market, and was always willing to meet us based on our schedules (driving all over the city, evenings & weekends away from his young family) He was regularly pulling comparison properties and came prepared to each excursion with a booklet of properties we were seeing and all relevant stats. When we finally walked into our dream home things moved very quickly with Bryan guiding us through the offers, counter-offers, and the entire process. To make our move easier Bryan was able to recommend an excellent home inspector and to our surprise he had all of the locks changed for us on our move in day and a 'welcome basket' on our countertop. Our house hunting experience was a lot of fun; we looked forward to it. We think it's rare that your realtor is someone who you can sit and have a visit and beer with; we would highly recommend Bryan for his knowledge, experience, personality and willingness to help every step of the way towards selling or buying in the Calgary market.

Lauren Corscadden, Jason Wilkins and their baby Willow
My husband and I are new to Alberta, and were months away from having our first child. We were seeking a house to grow our little family, and not knowing anyone in the area, took a leap of faith when selecting a Realtor.
We first met Bryan at an open house and found him to be a very pleasant and sincere person and our association has gone on from that particular day 3 years ago.
We Introudcued Bryan to our son and daughter in law when they were considering selling their house. He did a fantastic job for them and found them the house they were looking for.
When we decided to sell and move on again we contacted Bryan. We needed to find the right house and this took time with numerous viewings of many properties but in the end we got there and thank Bryan for his time and patience. The marketing on our property was excellent and it sold within seven days.
Bryan is a very professional person, a person who really enjoys his job and gives his upmost attention to detail, always having his clients interests to heart. We can certainly recommend Bryan Herman to be your realtor!
Akila & Hugh Ji
My husband and I were first time buyers, and saw that Bryan was the lister for one of the properties we were looking at. We had emailed quite a few Realtors to view different houses, and were very impressed with Bryan's immediate responsiveness. After seeing our first two options with Bryan, he offered to assist us for the rest of our viewings. He was extremely friendly, informative and eager to help answer all of our questions, which was very helpful as new buyers. It was also very refreshing that he was not at all pushy, and seemed to be completely dedicated to helping us find our perfect home.
We viewed about 8 different houses and Bryan went out of his way to meet us at any inconvenient hour or location we requested. He was continually enthusiastic and devoted to helping us, sending us numerous properties he thought we would be interested in, with our specific preferences in mind. He was completely honest on his opinions and never tried to pressure us into a sale.
We eventually found almost exactly what we were both looking for, unique and modern central townhouse with a garage,just under our ideal budget. As we were signing the contract after deciding on the house, he explained the section that states we agree to only use him as our Realtor. He informed us that it is generally signed prior to viewing the properties, but he chooses to only have his clients sign it once he's found a home for them, as he wants you to want to work with him, instead of being bound to his company initially on paper. This really solidified our belief that we made the right decision to work with him. (Not that we had any doubts before.)
He truly helped us every step of the way, with the seller,mortgage broker, inspector, appraiser and lawyer and managed to get us $20,000 off the asking price! Also, as a welcome gift, he even had a locksmith to redo all of our doors as there were too many keys!
We honestly could not have stumbled upon a better Realtor, and have already recommended all of our friends to work with him in the future.
Janice and Wendy
We loved working with Bryan on finding our new forever house! He always had a cheerful smile and positive attitude during our search. Bryan never failed to look out for our interests and concerns and gave us his opinion when we asked. He called us when new listings came up (even before they made the website!) that matched our criteria.
On possession day, Bryan handed us new keys for all our locks – he had a locksmith come in and re-key everything. And there was a beautiful fruit basket on the counter! That meant so much to us.
We would definitely recommend Bryan to anyone looking to buy or sell. He has a real feel for the market and listens to what YOU want in a home.
