CIR Realtor Derek Lien works hard to earn the trust, respect and repeat business of his clients, and there is no better measure of his success than the glowing testimonials from many happy customers on his website, www.minger.ca.
“Derek was attentive, helpful, courteous, and very accommodating,” say Brittany and Kurt. “His no-pressure approach and knowledge of real estate made our first home purchase essentially stress free.”
High praise, well-earned – Derek spent years buying, selling and renovating properties, and he has accumulated invaluable expertise he readily shares with clients, from accurate construction costing, to fair market value and a Rolodex of reliable, reputable, experienced trades, stagers and professionals.
“I became a Realtor to help people – to save them time and money, and to share what I’ve learned in fifteen years investing in properties,” Derek says. “The good, the bad, and the ugly, and I know my clients appreciate the honesty.”
Not satisfied to rely only on his experiences in real estate investment and construction, Derek is diligent about staying informed. Whether it’s the fine print in condo sales, acreage upkeep, or financing options, Derek insists on providing the best information to his clients in a timely, organized fashion.
“I stay on top of things – I’m always working, always looking, and I always know the instant a property comes on the market,” Derek says.
An immigrant to this country with his family in 1979 and a Calgarian at heart, Derek is very familiar with a vast number of the city’s varied neighbourhoods.
“I’ve helped clients buy and sell downtown condos, hundred-year-old inner city homes, 50s bungalows, properties in newer neighbourhoods like Panorama and Discovery Ridge and acreages in Springbank,” Derek says. “I’m very comfortable all over this city, and there’s great neighbourhoods – and great properties – everywhere.”
One key to Derek’s success is his ability to listen, and his commitment to find clients exactly what they are looking for. Another testimonial, from Warren and Amanda, says it best: “Derek listened to our comments, paid close attention to our reactions, and over time we were able to focus on a particular area… even when the deal was done he continued to offer assistance and check in to make sure our move was going okay!”
