We came to Nick when John (then fiance, now husband) and I decided to look for a house. The same day when we approached Nick, was also the same day when Nick started to schedule us in for looking at potential houses. We looked at what seemed to be a hundred different places, and we even asked Nick if we can go back to a house we looked at earlier for a "second look". Not once did he rush us into purchasing a place - he was more than patient. He did background checks on all the houses we looked at to make sure it was up to our satisfaction, and made sure that we were not going to regret our purchase. I would highly recommend Nick to friends and family who will also be house shopping. We are very happy that we chose Nick Barbu to assist us in purchasing our first house together. You would think house shopping was complicated, but he definitely made this seem like a breeze.

"Being a first time home buyers, you can easily be overwhelmed and intimated by the sheer number properties on market and the difference in price. Luckily I found Nick Barbu from Royal LePage Realty who made the process much easier than I anticipated at first. Any questions I had were answered quickly and efficiently as he has an excellent knowledge of the market, legalities required and a great negotiator. I am extremely happy with my first home buy and couldn't have been more pleased with the service. I thank you for the time and effort you spent making this first experience as easy as it was! I would definitely recommend Nick to anyone and would not hesitate to use again in the future."
As first time buyers, we had lots of questions and hesitations especially when signing documents. Nick has been very patient and understanding all throughout the process, tried to answer all our questions and looked out to the best of our interest as his clients. As first time buyers, we had no idea of things that can be negotiated with the seller and Nick was there to guide us and to add necessary conditions to the purchase agreement which we missed to take into consideration. I will definitely recommend Nick to anyone looking for a smooth and efficient home buying experience!

We purchased two houses in Calgary through Nick, and our experience dealing with him was a very pleasing one!
What I liked most about Nick was his honesty and hard work. We liked a townhouse very much but it was overpriced, we insisted on putting an offer on the table. Nick advised us that the house was overpriced, and he kept searching for a similar property which was fairly priced until he found us the perfect one. Not only it was a better unit in terms of space and location, but he managed to save us 18,000 dollars!
Nick was always prompt on his appointments and paperwork, he worked hard weekdays and weekends to show us and find us and my parents the perfect future home. A well-spoken, polite, and courteous person; Nick is not only our realtor, but he is a family friend now.
