We hired Lina after interviewing several other agents. She had the courage to tell us the "straight goods" on selling our unit in the spring of 2009 when the housing market was uncertain. She also utilized more current approaches to finding people as the building we were in was more attractive to a younger owner.
It worked! Our unit sold in less than 10 days for 99% of asking.
We then hired Lina again, with no promise of doing any business, when the purchase of our next unit was in doubt. She helped us through the decision process and we eventually cancelled the purchase contract. Then we hired her and found a fabulous place (50% larger for only 10% more costs) with more features than we ever hoped to get.
I've recommended Lina to several others.
Thanks Lina! Robert V.

Lina helped us find our perfect home and sell our existing home. She understood what our needs were and was able to find the home for us. Her knowledge, advice and patience made it a stress-free experience. At every step she kept us informed and guided us through the whole process. I would definitely use Lina again and would recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced agent.

From day 1 Lina was fantastic with both the selling of my townhome and the purchase of my house. She was always available and able to answer my questions and put my mind at ease.
Lina worked tirelessly in a competitive housing market to find me the right house. Not only did she understand what I wanted but she also helped me understand further what it was I wanted. This helped me narrow down what I was looking for and end up in the perfect house.
Lina always provided honest and knowledgeable advice and guidance throughout the whole process. I am really happy she is my Realtor and I recommend her to everyone. Craig D.
As a first time home buyer, Lina was extremely helpful in assisting me in purchasing my first condo. She was extremely perceptive to my needs and listened to what I wanted then showed me realistic places within my limits. She was very pleasant and personable and did not pressure me in the slightest. I would recommend her to my family and friends without hesitation. Michael K.
We used Smart Calgary Homes this summer to sell our condo in Calgary, AB. The team of Lina and Janel was excellent to work with. They were both personable, professional and highly responsive to any and all questions we had! Lina proactively started sending monthly market evaluations for the neighborhood so that we knew what we could expect and for sold comparisons, as soon as we first contacted her. They helped us with negotiating the offers and all the paperwork that followed, including following up after the sale. As we are living abroad we really appreciated their advice and how flexible they were, including the extra work that was involved with a more complicated non-resident sale.
I would not hesitate to recommend Smart Calgary Homes to someone looking to sell their home. Laurie M.
Lina helped up to find and purchase our first home. After a few calls she was able to match us to several houses that were exactly what we were looking for. Very impressed with her level of expertise and attention to detail. Richard B.
As an out-of-town buyer, Lina Horner helped me tremendously with finding the right home for me. Not only was Lina efficient and effective, she was also very considerate towards my demanding schedule by helping me with every little detail in completing the purchase of my Calgary home from a distance, and with as little stress as possible. Lina's knowledge of the Calgary market also enabled me to make smart decisions. I now rest assured that I not only have the right home for me, I have also made a solid investment in the Calgary area should I decide to relocate in the future.
Purchasing or selling a home can be exasperating. Lina's sensitive nature gave me the space to think clearly. I cannot be more happy with my experience with Lina and Smart Calgary Homes. As an experienced home buyer, I have never met a realtor with a greater sense of ethics and awareness for her customers than Lina Horner. I would definitely ask for Lina's help again on my next transaction, and I would recommend anyone serious about purchasing or selling property in Calgary to consult with Lina. Raeann C.
