Livia’s Testimonials

Livia and Brendan were a delight to work with. Superb communication is only one of their many strengths. They are considerate and thoughtful. Their wisdom and insight after years of experience were invaluable. We enjoyed working with them, and highly recommend them to anyone wanting to buy or sell a home in Calgary.

Livia was recommended by a friend. Our first meeting was enough to show me how sincere Livia was in selling my house for me. My house was listed September 29th. Livia had an open house the next day and managed to get two couples interested in the house. A deal was made inside the first 48 hours of listing.

I would recommend Livia to everyone selling their home, she truly understands how to sell in this difficult market.

Great personality, knowledgeable, hard working and understanding.

Thanks Livia !

Livia helped us sell our old home and find our new home in a very short period of time, and at the beginning of a slowly recovering market. We couldn’t have asked for a more professional, hard-working, reliable, knowledgable (& if she didn’t know the answer to a question she was able to find out fairly quickly) individual to represent us who had our best interests at the forefront. Even in this tougher market, our home sold in 3.5 weeks and we found our new home (which we love!) all within the span of a few days. Livia made herself available whenever we required it, went above and beyond no matter what the situation, and it was obvious that she had our best interests at heart and wasn’t just in it for the sale. She never tried to push anything on us that we didn’t feel comfortable with, always letting us make a decision and providing guidance when we asked for it. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking to buy or sell a home in the Calgary area. I feel like we gained a friend along the way as an extra bonus!  Marcy

Livia was fantastic to work with, as first time home buyers it was a long process with many things we did not expect. She was always available to answer our questions, give us advice and help us throughout the entire process. We would highly recommend McCabe Hughes Real Estate for anyone looking for reliable, professional service!  Stephen M

Both of them were very patient and enthusiastic to help us to find our dream house. Their recommendations were very valuable as well.  Fatimah

I worked with Livia to help me find a new home and sell my previous home. She was extremely professional and I felt always had my interest in the forefront. Livia helped me negotiate a good deal in purchasing my new home and her professional expertise helped me in selling my home quickly at a price better than what I thought I would get. I would rehire her and Brendan or recommend them without hesitation! Sharon

Livia recently closed our Calgary home purchase. Upon our intended future relocation, we had no preference to any specific realtor so we decided to attend numerous Open Houses and speak with a few, a quasi informal interview process I suppose. After we happened upon an Open House that Livia was hosting, we knew our search for a realtor had come to an end.
It’s difficult to describe by words but Livia gave us the distinct impression she truly cared about our housing pursuit, that by working in a partnership with her she would make it happen, guided by her professionalism and knowledge during our search for the perfect home. Sure enough, we found it!
We never felt swayed or pressured and Livia offered information and accommodated our requests exactly to the right degree. It was a pleasurable experience and I wouldn’t hesitate to refer her services to family or friends.  Charles and Lynne

Livia recently sold our home and was an exemplary realtor from start to finish. She showed a genuine care about what was in our best interests, was accommodating of our time, and was constantly professional. We feel that she has taken excellent care of us and would not hesitate to use her services again or recommend her to our friend and family. Livia was awesome. Mike & Cara

Thanks, Livia I was in Holland while Livia McCabe looked after the sale of my house. She kept me informed at all times, whether by email or phone. It was a very positive experience, and I would recommend her to anyone who need the services of a realtor. Thanks Livia. Cornelis

I first meet Livia at an open house. I found her to be very professional and personable. I felt a connection instantly, and knew this is the type of realtor I want to work with in the sale of our house. Livia was always a phone call or text away, and responded to my inquiries in a very timely manner. That was very important to me.

Livia kept us in constant communication during the entire sale process which was often so timely in calming us during what can be a stressful time… She has great connections with the best in the business for every step in the process. Liv works hard is always on top of every detail. Her years of experience and knowledge are evident. We have used Livia on two purchases and one sale of properties and would not hesitate to recommend her – as we do our to family & friends!

Livia was so easy to work with and was with me every step of the way in purchasing my new home. We ran into a few snags along the way and she resolved them quickly and kept my mind at ease. I would definitely work with Livia again!

Livia was knowledgeable and patient, as first home buyers we were very satisfied with her adaptability and persistence on finding us the right home.

Brendan and Livia made the entire experience as simple as possible. I felt there observations and advice invaluable in reaching our final purchase decision.
They are a great team!

Very kind and hardworking people, made the process less stressful then it could have been.

Professional, knowledgable, understanding. Brendan had the creativity, flexibility and patience to allow us to find the right house for our family. There is no need to search for any other realtor team.

Livia was tremendously helpful in guiding us through the purchase of our first home. She was professional and courteous, gave us sound advice and represented us well. Thanks Livia!

We worked with Livia on a recent real estate deal and we’re absolutely delighted with her knowledge, expertise, efficiency and personal handling of our transaction. We have been recommending her to friends, family and colleagues and will continue to do so. We would not hesitate to request Livia and Brendan for any and all future real estate endeavours. It was a pleasure – Kudos!!

I’d really like to thank Livia for the truly professional way in which she handled the sale of my home earlier this summer. A home that I loved and wanted someone else to love as I did. She was committed, engaged, available, respectful and very knowledgeable about the Calgary real estate market. During all parts of the sale and final negotiations I was informed and considered as part of her team. I would like to recommend her as someone who eases the stressful time of selling one’s home with her professional work ethic and personable manner. Thanks again, Livia.

They are a great team ! Helped my a lot on my first experience buying a house, and hope they will help me selling the old one. It was great to meet them 🙂

We were very happy with the overall service and professionalism provided by Livia and Brendan. They were very thorough and knowledgeable. I would highly recommend them! Don

Working with Livia and Brendan was an amazing experience. They both work so hard to find the perfect home for your family. They went above and beyond for us. They take all the worry out of the house buying process, so that you can sit back and enjoy the experience! I would and have referred them to everyone I know buying or selling! They are DYNAMITE!!!

Livia’s expertise, professionalism, and support of my needs as a client went above and beyond my expectations. She took the time to listen to my concerns and provide valuable feedback, advice, and guidance in order to promptly sell my property for 98% of its listing price. She also guided me through the process of purchasing of my new property with the utmost attention to my unique requirements. I highly recommend the professional real estate services of Livia McCabe to anyone involved in the purchase and/or sale of property. Clients will not be disappointed in her commitment to their satisfaction.

I can say Livia understand the costumers needs. Buying home is a big commitment. She directs and advices the clients with professionalism,and helping them to take the right decision.I strongly will recommend her to my friends and colleagues.

We had an excellent experience with Livia and Brendan and would highly recommend to a friend! We had some specific requirements that we were looking for and they easily understood that and went out of their way to find what we were looking for. This was also our first time both buying and selling and they were very good at walking us through all of the necessary steps.

Livia did an excellent job representing us while selling our condo and we were very happy with how well everything went. On a note of constructive criticism, Livia had mentioned to us to get all of the condo documents in order when we listed the place. The condo was up on the market for more than a month, so when we went to give those documents to the buyer’s realtor, a number of those documents were out of date and had to be repurchased because they’d expired, which ended up costing us another couple of hundred dollars. It’s not a big deal, but perhaps in the future suggest holding off on purchasing those documents until a firm deal is met so sellers don’t have to repurchase. Livia, thanks so much for all of your help. We really appreciate it!

Thank you Livia and Brendan! Thanks for helping us find a new home and putting in the effort to sell our current home quickly. We appreciated that you understood the needs of a young family. It was a pleasure working with you. We’ll keep in touch! Ian & Stacey and the kids.

Livia was an amazing real estate agent. We bought and sold with her and she provided quick, professional and detailed service on both ends. She was always available for our many questions and steered us through some challenges with buyers and sellers. At every step we had complete trust in Livia. She was always looking out for our best interests and doing so in a respectful and ethical manner. Beyond that, Livia made the entire experience enjoyable through all the ups and downs with a positive attitude and a spirit of fun.

We were extremely happy with our experience. Working with Livia throughout the buying and selling process was a pleasure. What we found particularly valuable was her excellent advice and knowledge when it came to the negotiation process. We would definitely recommend the McCabe/Hughes real estate team. Carly and Duncan

Having not just one agent working for us was definitely beneficial! The McCabe / Hughes team got the job done and we are very thankful for the great + efficient work they provided for our family on the buy & sell side.

Livia went above and beyond to help us find our house and at an exceptional price. I would highly recommend Livia and Brendan!

Livia worked with us tirelessly to find the perfect home. When we were unable to meet one of our key desires (a big yard) she went knocking door to door on certain streets to see if any homeowners were willing to sell. You don’t find many realtors willing to invest so much time for their clients. Livia went above and beyond our expectations, and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a realtor.

Livia and Brendan are true professionals; they display a great knowledge of the real estate market and have a very proficient way of aiding you with what is sure to be one of your biggest purchases. I would highly recommend Brendan and Livia to anyone who is serious about finding the right house at the right price, or is looking to sell their current home. Thanks Brendan and Livia! Chris & Tori S.

We had a very poor experience with a previous realtor, before we were introduced to Livia and Brendan. After transferring our listing to them their enthusiasm and positive approach to listing and selling our home was very refreshing. Their hard work resulted in a quick response by several prospects with a sale taking place in several weeks.

When we found out we were going to have a second child, we decided that it was time to move up to a bigger house. Livia exhausted every avenue to find us a buyer for our house. Then she fought to make sure we got the price we wanted. When it came time to buy, we were incredibly picky and Livia patiently showed us house after house after house after…. Livia worked tirelessly, sending us every listing that filled our criteria. When the time came, and we found our dream home, Livia made sure that we got the best possible deal. She saved us a tonne of money and we couldn’t be happier with our new home. Buying and selling your home is one of the most important things you’ll ever do, why not entrust this event to an expert? Keith & Michelle K.

My experience with Livia McCabe as my realtor has been above and beyond my expectations, and I had high expectations knowing of her past business success. All of my communications were responded to quickly and thoroughly, her advice was intelligent and she follows through with everything she says she will do. The pictures she took of my listing were excellent, and combined with her recommendations for strategic pricing and timing led to a sale of my property within two days of listing. At a higher price than I was expecting! She truly is a fantastic negotiator.
The quick sale created a need to purchase a home in a relatively short time frame. I was impressed at how quickly she made herself available to my schedule and set up an easy schedule for viewing properties. Her organization and attentiveness to our needs enabled us to find a home that meets all of our needs and desires. Once again, her negotiation skills were incredible and brought the price down more than I thought possible. There were a few issues that came up throughout the process and all of them were handled with professionalism and integrity. I strongly recommend you choose Livia as your realtor and cannot imagine having anyone else represent me in the future. Tracy H.
