From the beginning having Rhonda at CIR working for us made all the difference. She got us our place for less than asking by getting our bid in 12 hours before any others. That meant submitting it late on a Sunday night and getting it accepted early Monday morning before other agents were starting their days. Throughout the whole process she helped us extend deadlines and meet them. We would not have this property if it wasn’t for her. We recommend her to anyone and everyone. Am amazing experience and a wonderful outcome. Thanks again. Annie I.

Rhonda Warawa – Review

I’ve bought and sold many houses before, but this was the most complicated and most worrying purchase I have ever made. Purchasing a house, on the other side of the country (Nova Scotia to Alberta), during a pandemic, across three time zones, presented a couple of new challenges for us.

Rhonda exceeded our expectations.

Being on the other side of the country, and unable to physically inspect the property ourselves, her video walk-through was highly informative and detailed. She took the time to ensure that we saw not only what we wanted to see, but things she felt we should be aware of. 

Being unable to drive through the community Rhonda responded to requests for information by making phone calls and looking up information about local by-laws and covenants. While respecting the time difference and what that meant for us, she would still respond to emailed questions, with documentation backed answers, within minutes of sending them. 

One of the challenges we had was not even knowing who to contact for services. Rhonda was able to direct us to local professional services and act as our agent while dealing with those services.

We would like to thank Rhonda, and any members of her team that worked with her. You were the least stressful group of professionals we worked with during this entire process.

Selecting a realtor to assist us in purchasing our first home was a big decision. As young, first time home buyers, we needed a professional who would listen, understand our needs/wants and ultimately provide us with the best possible advice for the largest investment we were about to make! After having a fallout with a realtor at another agency, I walked in to CIR in hopes we would find a realtor that we could “work with”. I was greeted by Hugh and Rhonda the second I walked through the door and I instantly knew we were in good hands! We really had no idea what we wanted or where to start. Rhonda worked with us on a very personal basis to understand our needs, and viewed countless houses with us! She didn’t just want to sell us any house, she cared about us taking our time, looking at all of our options and making a decision that made sense. She was fantastic at staying well within our budget and sent us EVERY listing that was out there! She was always reachable when we had questions and would always make time for a showing! Rhonda made house hunting lots of fun. her fun-loving disposition and sense of humor made our experience relaxed yet productive and exciting! As first time homebuyers we had a lower budget and loved that the CIR team was so helpful and non-judgmental. Of course we ended up falling in LOVE with a home over budget that we had requested to view. When we decided to make an offer, Rhonda and Dave gave exceptional advice and thoroughly explained the entire process to us. They worked day and night to help us negotiate the very best deal on this house! We ended up with that over-budget home we fell in love with and it is all thanks to Rhonda and the CIR team! I Cannot Recommend Rhonda and her Team Enough!!!

This was my first experience at listing my commercial property for lease.  The property was leased by an international corporation.  Hugh was always available to answer my questions and provide the guidance that was required to complete this transaction.  An experienced realtor was critical to completing the transaction.

To whom it may concern

It is our absolute pleasure to write this letter of reference for Hugh Bodmer.

We have known Hugh for about 25 years. We have thoroughly enjoyed our times working with Hugh and come to know him as a valuable asset to any team.

When Hugh was the Economic Development Officer for the Town of Olds he had the foresight, to start a Tourism Action Committee. That committee had a vison and started Olds Fashioned Christmas.  Today, 25 years later, Olds Fashioned Christmas is still a beloved event in our community.

His knowledge and expertise in community development is a huge advantage to all who work with him.

Hugh is honest dependable and incredibly hard working.  Beyond that he is strong leader in our community.

He served as President for Olds Kiwanis for three years rebuilding the Club and its membership. The Kiwanis Club today is viable organization serving our community, thanks to Hugh’s efforts.

Along with his undeniable talent, Hugh is fun to work with.  He is a true team player, and always manages to foster positive discussion that brings results.

As a dedicated and knowledgeable Realtor and all around great person we would not hesitate to recommend him as your realtor.
