WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING
Downsizing from a large home to a “right size home” is a challenge for anyone, but especially when you have lived in the same home for nearly 16 years! However, with the help of Alexis Meinzer and her team, we were pleasantly surprised at how smooth our transition went into a smaller home. Alexis completely understood our needs and was willing to show us a variety of options. We were very pleased with the process and the outcome. We are moving into just the right home for us at our stage of life!
Regarding the sale of our property, we couldn’t have been happier. Our house sold in 48 hours over our list price. No doubt it was because of the coaching we received in regard to preparing our home for sale and the marketing strategies Alexis employed. The saying goes, “A picture is worth a thousand words” and in this case it was true! A professional photographer photographed our home and the pictures were absolutely stunning. No doubt a key reason why we had such interest in our house and ultimately four offers, of which two were over list price.
Throughout the entire process of selling our home and purchasing another home, we felt supported and very much part of the process. Alexis and her team were highly professional, knowledgeable and went out of their way to make the experience as understandable and seamless as possible. We highly recommend Alexis and her team and are delighted with our experience with Meinzer and James.
- Linda and Jim Dyck
Thank you both very much for your professionalism and assistance with all the details of our home sale. We feel that it was a very smooth process and you constantly kept us in the loop as to what was happening, what would occur next and what else was being listed and sold in the neighborhood. Your system is very streamlined and very easy to follow. We are all thrilled with the outcome and will be pleased to use your services again for any future real estate transactions and would definitely recommend you to others. Amazing job ladies!

- Skye Dack
Mikala is amazing at what she does and she does so with extreme professionalism, kindness and genuine care. She truly does her best to help her clients find a home, not simply a house. She goes into her showings prepared and organized knowing things about the area, schools, amenities etc. I value Mikala's knowledge and experience, and trust her completely."
We listed our home ( and purchased our new home) with Alexis after interviewing a few agents. We chose her because she listened to our needs and brought forth a thoughtful, well researched and professional plan to sell our home. She respected the fact that we had a small baby and made the multiple showings we had as stress free as possible. Above all, she put our needs first, which, I think is rare. We felt very well taken care of by her and her team as well as the services they recommended we use. I would not hesitate to recommend Meinzer James to anyone selling or buying a home. Thank you so much for getting us into our dream neighbourhood!!!!!

I listed a condo with Mikala that was a rental property. Everything prior to listing was done quickly and with minimal disruption to my tenants. Her strategy made sense when she outlined her plan so we trusted her judgement. We had 7 showings the first day with 2 competing offers and sold the unit over list in 11 hours. Amazing! She has put together an wonderful team and the professionalism shows in her listings. What is most important though is her integrity. She is honest! A rare trait these days.
- Cindy Frederick
Best selling experience I have ever had! I listed my condo for sale with Alexis and sold for top dollar despite concerns I had about the resale market during these tough economic times. I was educated and informed every step of the way which gave me full confidence that I was in the best hands. She actively marketed the property and attracted the right buyer. Not only did I have an extremely positive experience, but I am better educated about the real estate market as a whole - it was so refreshing to have an agent that knows the market inside out and will tell it like it is! Thank you Alexis and Kristen for all your hard work, and I look forward to buying my new home with you.
- Erin Heath
Using Mikala for the sale of our home was the perfect choice. She was not only extremely helpful and professional, but she made herself immediately available any time I had any questions. Her experience in the industry was evident during her negotiations with the purchasers agent and she got us a great deal. We will definitely be using Mikala again!
- Karly Smith
As a first time home buyer, I could not have been happier with hiring Alexis to help me find a condo. I found Alexis through a referral. Alexis took the time to listen and explain things throughout my whole experience. She was very responsive whether through email, phone, or text. She is very professional, knowledgeable, trustworthy, and not to mention fun to work with. Alexis and her team genuinely care about their clients. I would use Alexis again for any future real estate needs.
- Liz Clement
Mikala is always professional and courteous. She is available for her clients and works to understand their profile and needs. She also facilitated contact with an outstanding broker and accountant. She is an essential part of our team and we look forward to her continued service.
- Oscar Steel
Hands down the best selling experience we've had. Listed our house with Alexis during one of the most difficult times in the city and before we knew it the house was sold - at a price we're very happy with. She and Kristen kept us up-to-date with weekly market research and interest reports, actively marketed the property (here and abroad) and the take-home materials were *way* beyond what we'd hoped for. The photographer was top-notch and the entire Meinzer & James team were unbelievably professional. We're actually going to miss them - how often do you say that about a Real Estate company!? Could not recommend them more.
- Issa & Nita Breibish
Mikala is a very seasoned realtor and has pulled together an exceptional group of people that ensured the process of selling our home was effective and painless. The initial photos that were taken of our home was meticulously done with the right lighting and angles that presented our home well on the promotional material. This is what helps to drive the interest which results in booked viewings. Her attention to detail and level of customer service is fantastic. I would definitely recommend Mikala and her team to anyone. I certainly would use her services again should the need come up.
- Van H.
Alexis is vivacious, bold, honest and possesses a razor-sharp intelligence that connects ideas, details and people. She also works and lives with a remarkable level of care and detail that makes her a pleasure to work with and learn from. She retains information with ease and stays on top of trends, always willing to share her latest research findings. Alexis operates with a pride and detail in her work that leaves the people around her confident in -- and enthusiastic about -- the next step. She's a gem to work with, but don't take my word for it.
- Les Motyosky
I found my new home! Mikala James gave me refreshingly thoughtful and professional service as I searched. I really appreciate the care and attention, listening and patience as I worked through important choices and decisions. Mikala thoughtfully balanced her experienced view and suggestions with giving me the time to explore what I thought I wanted in a very effective way. Mikala goes above and beyond the average Realtor in the way they help clients buy and sell their homes and I would recommend her highly to any of my friends.
- Chris Jones
Alexis Meinzer helped me both sell and buy. I have never met such professionalism or attention to detail in any business dealings before. There was never a point in which I wasn’t fully informed on what was going on during both selling and buying. Alexis tells it like it is, no bluff and bluster, and therefore no nasty surprises. She has her finger right on the pulse of the market and works very hard for her clients. Nothing was ever too much trouble, communication was swift day or night. Alexis laid out the processes ahead step by step which gave a very welcome sense of calm and logic. Alexis has a trusted team of other professionals she can recommend, e.g. legal, trades, which was very helpful. I have been more than pleased to recommend Alexis and her company to friends who have also been thrilled to work with her.
- Ros Jones
When I hired Mikala back in February to sell my condo, I was very apprehensive as the market was slow and the weather was cold, not a perfect selling scenario. However, Mikala went above and beyond to accurately appraise the condo, determine a listing price and effectively market the property. I cannot praise her work ethic, confidence and outgoing, friendly nature enough. She brought me an offer in just over a month that was $10,000.00 higher than another realtor was willing to list it for! Amazingly, she then got another $1,500.00 more for it. I can't thank her enough. She kept me informed every step of the way and always answered my questions and returned my calls quickly. It was apparent from the start that she had my best interests in mind arriving at our first meeting with lots of researched information to show me.
I will gladly recommend Mikala to anyone wanting to buy or sell a property, knowing I am recommending the best Calgary has to offer.
Thank you so much for all you did for me.
- Sylvia Crichton
Business Instincts Group has had the pleasure of working with Alexis and her team on a few different projects and every time they over deliver. Alexis has integrity, a great network, deep experience, and a very creative and yet very realistic business sense. I highly recommend Alexis and her team.
- Cameron Chell
Valerie called me today and it was the happiest that I have heard her voice in a long time. She is thrilled with our new home. Thank you Alexis for all your hard work. You've been great through all of this and made this purchase delightful. You have been very supportive and accommodating. You are most certainly the best Realtor that I have ever worked with.
-Hank & Valerie Whelan
Thank you Alexis Meinzer! I wanted to write a note to share my sincere thanks and appreciation for the work you and your team did to sell my property. After working with many realtors over the years, I began to expect about the same level of service from all of them - often the type of experience that leaves you feeling a little frustrated to hand over a commission.
Working with Alexis Meinzer was truly a new kind of experience with an equal focus on 2 things: excellent ongoing communication with the client, and getting the property sold for the best price. I always appreciated the depth of industry experience, prompt follow up after showings, ongoing general discussions to ensure the best pricing strategy, knowledgeable negotiation recommendations, and even arranging the lawn care during the listing period!
Alexis and her team went the extra mile at every step of the process, resulting in not only the sale of the property, but also a very positive real estate experience. I will look forward to recommending Alexis Meinzer within my network - I have total confidence in her and her team to get the job done well, and I look forward to to continuing to work with you.
-Graham and Erin Heath
We were referred to Alexis Meinzer by a family member. Our experience with her was absolutely amazing and stress free! Alexis was extremely professional, knowledgeable, patient, and sensitive to our needs and concerns throughout the home buying process and we truly felt as though she was working for us. We would highly recommend Alexis Meinzer to anyone looking to sell or purchase a home. We will definitely call upon her when we are in the market for our next home.
-Mike & Jen Findlay
Thank you Alexis for the wine and gift certificate. It is much appreciated, however, I think we should be giving you the gift. The condo is working out great and is perfect for our needs. Thanks for all your help in finding this little gem, I will definitely be recommending you to my friends and family. Thanks again!
We recently worked with Alexis and her firm on the purchase of our new home, as well as the sale of our existing property. Alexis was always there to assist us with the myriad of questions and concerns we had, and she was always cheerful and eager to help. We were consistently impressed with the quick turnaround time of our requests by Alexis and her team, as well as the diligence they demonstrated. Alexis took the time to list all the pros and cons for every property that we visited and was committed to making sure that we met our objectives. Despite the fact that she showed us several properties, she never lost patience with us and was able to keep us focused. Alexis made time for us and worked around our schedules, arrived early to the properties, and never rushed us. She truly cares about her clients and helped us make informed decisions for both our transactions. It was truly a pleasure working with Alexis and we wouldn't hesitate to recommend her services or listing with her again (but not anytime soon as we love our new home!)
-Julie Morin & George Androulidakis
Fantastic and refreshingly honest realtor. Alexis is the ideal realtor to work with during both the selling and purchasing process. Alexis is knowledgeable, dedicated and consistently puts her client’s needs first. She approaches property transactions from both a financial and emotional perspective. Alexis goes above and beyond to make sure that her clients are making informed and smart decisions. I strongly recommend her expertise. Simply put Alexis is the best.
Working with Alexis to purchase our first home was a very pleasant and educational experience. As first time buyers, Alexis was extremely helpful during every step of the process; from scheduling countless showings to providing reputable and trustworthy advice and contacts for home inspections, lawyers, etc., she added significant value to the entire process. I would highly recommend Alexis and her company to anybody looking to buy/sell a home and will gladly use her again for our next property.
- Brendan Davies
We want to thank Alexis and her company for helping us succeed in finding the right house to call our home in a neighborhood that suites us. My husband and I were not the easiest couple to work with, as we wanted to look at houses, apartments, acreages, inner city and outer city areas. Alexis, was on the ball with comparing market housing prices, giving us helpful tips and staying calm and patient when my husband and I needed to take time for ourselves to narrow down our choices. Once we narrowed our choice to one house, it was a smooth purchase. Not only did we succeed in purchasing a house with Alexis, she also helped getting our previous home conditionally sold within 48hrs. We highly recommend her.
- Nicole Hemsing
We were grateful to have the expertise that Alexis brought to our search for our first home. She was patient, attentive to our needs and extremely knowledgeable. We were tremendously happy with the result of our search and with the personal touch that her company offered.
