I was so incredibly thankful I had Steve Bruner, as my Realtor, from Nice Agents Real Estate Team for the purchase of my new home. Newly back to Alberta, a home buying process can be daunting, but Steve made it easy every step of the way. I appreciated him finding potential properties to view, to helping me with the negotiations, he was always available and communicated how each part of the process would proceed. Steve also understood the housing market in the area, provided historic information on properties which allowed for a great deal, while ensuring that both parties felt like they had a fair outcome. The ultimate professional, incredibly personable, I would recommend Steve Bruner to anyone looking to sell their home, or in the purchase of one! Thanks so much, Steve.

After struggling for months to sell our house, we were referred to Steven. After our first call with him we were put at ease thanks to his professionalism and reassurance. He is knowledgeable, determined, and really made us feel comfortable and confident in our decisions. Within 5 days of our contract we sold our house at the exact price point we were hoping for. He is excellent at communicating and explaining every part of the process. Steven truly went above and beyond to help us out during the incredibly stressful time of selling our house and I won't hesitate to go straight to him again should we ever buy/sell in the future. Thank you Steven!

It would not be entirely surprising if you are unfamiliar with John Carle or the Nice Agents Real Estate Team. Unlike many realtors, you will not find his image or corporate logo on a fridge magnet, golf ball or any similar throwaway promotional material. But if you read my experience, perhaps you will see the merit in choosing him over someone you recognize from a bus stop bench. We were looking to downsize, and John acted as our agent for both the sale of our house and the purchase of our condo. On his initial walk-through of our home, he provided a fair market evaluation and prioritized repairs to undertake to maximize our renovation dollar. John also recommended buying a condo prior to selling our home, rationalizing that it would be much easier to sell our house than find a suitable condo, given the relative dearth of suitable listings for both. We provided John a list of must-haves and nice-to-haves and a list of condos that we would like to see. After several viewings, he quickly established what type of property would interest us and tailored our visits accordingly. Moreover, his extensive experience with condo associations, reserve funds, bylaws – all issues that were completely foreign to us – allowed us to avoid potentially problematic properties. After seeing 14 units over a six month period, we found a unit that met our needs perfectly in a building with impressive amenities and strong financial reserve fund. We made an offer that was accepted hours later. As happy as we were with our purchase experience, our house sale proved even better, and it was here where John’s marketing philosophy – and tech savvy – shone through. A week before hitting the market, he ran teaser ads on Facebook and Google, leveraging the massive marketing potential of social media to maximize exposure of our home. It worked! Within hours of listing, we had eight showings and two open houses – which drew 24 buyers – over a three day period. As previously arranged, we were reviewing offers by the end of Day 3. Five days later and following brief but intense negotiations, we closed at 99.6% of list price and conditions were removed. Nine days after the “For Sale” sign went up a “SOLD” sticker followed it. A textbook sale, John said. We certainly could not be any happier with how it turned out. At every stage of both our condo search and home sale John proved to be a consummate professional, demonstrating a comprehensive knowledge of his craft, an innate understanding of market conditions and formidable negotiation skills. More importantly, he made the experience fun and kept things light throughout the process. I would absolutely and unconditionally recommend John Carle to help sell your house or buy your next one. For us, the results speak for themselves. Craig and Carole Malin March 2023

Steven Bruner was very pro active with the whole transaction. Steve is attentive, knowledgeable and very personable. He is upbeat and always expressive with his cheery outgoing personality. He was very professional and supportive throughout. Thanks Steve!

John was a pleasure to work with during a pretty stressful time. He was genuine & honest w/o any of that 'sales' talk that I didn't want or need. Best of all, he was always professional which is not something you always get when you're a single professional woman. He was responsive to questions quickly and worked within my timelines and was realistic about expectations, pricing, etc. My house sold within 2 weeks of listing because we were priced appropriately for the market & because I had John by my side doing all the heavy lifting. He made the process so much easier than it might have been and I'm so grateful for his help and support in selling my home this past fall. Thanks, John!
By: Kevin Ramsay
We were struggling to sell our place and my friend recommended John. John was great from our first interaction. He quickly determined the type of purchaser who would be interested in our property and set us up to appeal to that group of purchasers. He was always available to answer our questions and kept us aware of what was happening. When we started receiving offers John made the process very easy, recommended a way forward and made sure our best interests were ensured (vice a quick sale). We would definitely use John the next time we are looking to move in the area.
By: Amber Morgan
Their name really does say it all! They are nice. Plus they are always willing to help calm the nerves when things got crazy, and explained everything so we were comfortable. We had John help us through our first time buying a home, and I couldn't recommend him any higher. Then a year and a half later we had the opportunity to move with my husbands company across Canada, so we called John again to help us sell. Both times he was just awesome and there when we needed him. His knowledge and experience made the difference. If you're looking to buy or sell, make sure you call John!
By: Rosario Desmaras
Steve Bruner goes above and beyond to provide you with the best service possible. He has been nothing but great to us. We recently purchased our first house with his help and will definitely hire him again should we ever sale or buy again. He has been assisting us even after the home purchase. Therefore, I can say without hesitation he genuinely cares about people. I have recommended him to a family friend and would not doubt to recommend him to anyone. Unfortunately google does not allow to give 6 out of 5 stars. Otherwise I would.

John was a true pleasure to work with. I have moved multiple times over just a few years and have been through numerous real estate agents, John has by far been the best agent I have had the pleasure to work with when purchasing a house. My situation was such that we had one week to find a house and purchase it, John made that happen, not through volume, but through a process of taking into account all of our needs and wants and then focusing. When you're with John and looking through a house, he's taking mental notes to all of your reactions. Without John's careful attention to our reactions, we never would have even looked at the house that ended up buying. His process is flawless, he'll sit down and list your wants and needs and then takes you to places that align with what you're looking for. He was very responsive at all times and through all mediums. Highly recommended!

here were several stresses involved with my decision to relocate back to BC. Thankfully John Carle was recommended to me by a close personal friend. John took the time to understand what was driving my decision to sell and did everything in his power to make the sale despite the challenges in the condominium market at the time. If you are looking for an agent that cares about more than just making the sale, John’s your man!
By: Zsuzsanna Spence
Our realtor was John Carle, and he was simply awesome! The entire process, from researching the best listing price for our condo, to setting us up with a dashboard so that we could see what was happening every step of the way with viewings etc, and then finally negotiating a top dollar offer and a quick closing date...it was simply the best. We couldn't have been any happier, we will definitely be back next time. AAA+++
By: Stefan Dionne
Steve @ Nice agents was amazing for my wife and I. As first time home buyers he made us feel comfortable, and confident in our decisions. He bent over backwards accommodating our crazy schedule for viewings. I’m so glad we had him in our corner. Will definitely be calling again when the time comes. Thanks for everything. We love our new home!
By: Hoda Mohamoud
Realtor Steve Bruner is god send! He went above and beyond helping me and my son by picking us up from airport and setting up all the showings in two days that we were there. We bought one of the apartments that we loved. I would recommend Steve as wonderful, knowledgeable realtor who knows the market and will give you honest feedback.
By: Rutilio Rivera
Nothing but GREAT things to say about Steve. Recently helped us look at different properties, and found one right away, quick to answer any questions that came up. Felt like no time was wasted and very efficient. Thank you for all your help!
By: David Schumacher
John was excellent in dealing with our needs and budget. We got the same service from John that he would give to someone looking for a million dollar home. John also showed he cared with follow up after the sale helping us get the builder to fix issues.
By: Laslo Kranic
I was having a difficult time finding the right realtor to sell my home. John Carle was recommended by a friend of the family. He was great to work with and so much experience in Real Estate. His vast experience made a difficult sell, a pleasant experience. He found the right buyers for our heritage home. Would highly recommend John Carle. Thank you so much.

We had listed our home a year ago with a different agency and it wasn't a good experience. Our children are always at the forefront of our thoughts and after months on the market we pulled our listing. It was getting late in the year and we wanted to minimize disruptions to our children's routine. I am so glad we did! When we were ready to list again, we contacted Steve from Nice Agents. We told him our ideal conditions and he completely delivered! Steve was efficient yet thorough, always checking in to make sure we were comfortable with the process. He is highly organized, we knew at all time what and when things were happening. After only 24 hours on the market we accepted an offer. It was the price point we discussed and EXACTLY the possession date we wanted. Less than 2 weeks after listing, we closed on our home. No idea what happened behind the scenes but there was zero stress on our part. We can't thank Steve enough for taking care of our family.
By: Vanessa Valcourt
Steve Bruner helped us buy our very first home is a very not friendly to first time home buyers market. He showed us home after home and took every comment that we made and never once made us feel like what we being unreasonable for our price range. Even after the purchase and possession date came and went Steve still continually showed up. He came by and helped clean the home and move garbage and furniture that was left on the property to help us bring it to the dump. I highly recommend Steve to anyone. If you’re buying or selling or even thinking about doing one of the two You need Steve Bruner.

In 2021 I was considering selling my home and had listed it with a realtor who will remain anonymous because he was lazy and useless . Then John Carle knocks on my door asking if I was still Interested in selling my house as he had clients looking for a home. John’s initiative and approach was incredible and we ultimately sold our house to his clients. I was so impressed with John’s dedication to finding his clients a home that I used him to buy my current home . John was great to deal with and I would have no problem recommending him as a realtor! Thanks for all your help John!
By: Kristopher Olafson
Very prompt and professional. Steve made the home buying process smooth and easy.
By: Karen Cockrall
John helped us sell my dad's home when he went into care. He was amazing, providing great advice and getting us almost asking price. John is a very experienced and professional real estate agent but he has so much integrity and honesty, and is dedicated to his clients. Plus, he is very funny. We won't use anyone else.
By: Amith G
We had such a positive experience with our realtor, Steve Bruner. He helped us find our dream home. He was always willing to make changes even with a really short notice. Have never seen some one so professional and passionate to his work. Even at around 9:00 pm, he drove 40 min to check out our current home for us. We would have never got this place if he would not have shown that level of passion towards his work. Felt really comfortable having him on our side. Would definitely recommend to everyone I know.
By: Mark Serediak
We worked with John Carle in 2009 when we moved from Edmonton in a very difficult post peak market (he was with a different realty company then). John was always honest and up front with us and put incredible effort in selling our home at our price. Travel 12 years in time to 2021 - living 3 provinces away, we had an estate sale on our hands and I instantly recommended to my family that we find and hire John for the job. He leapt into this very difficult condo sale (old appliances, not clean, evil condo board) with absentee sellers. He went above and beyond to handle tasks that we weren't able to, even going so far to help arrange for redistribution/disposal of items left in the home. Yes, I definitely recommend John and The Nice Agents Real Estate Team!

He is always ready to answer our questions no matter what day of the week or the time, Steve we are more than grateful for your excellent work!!! I recommend Highly This Realtor and the agency in general. THANKS AGAIN!!!
By: Jasper Francisco
Living 2 hours away from Edmonton without a clear idea where and what type of condo I will be looking for is a bit challenging for me. Steve Bruner made it easy and exceeded all my expectations. He’s so full of energy that I can’t believe we looked at 14 properties on our first meeting. Not only that, he but puts an effort on gathering useful details on each of the property. He spelled out the pros and cons on each surrounding areas, offer valuable advice and provide honest answers to my questions which steers me away from making bad decision. I felt comfortable on my journey and confident that my realtor is on my side every step of the way. Thank you Steve for all your help since day one until after I got the key. I couldn’t ask for more. This has been a pleasant experience for me and very happy and satisfied with my purchase – totally stress free.
By: Luke Gervais
John lives up to his moniker. He truly is a nice agent. He’s also a nice human being which counts for a lot too. He’s also good at his job I have both a new place that I love and an old place that sold quickly. Job well done John. I’d say I’d use him again (last time was the second time) but my wife doesn’t ever want to move again so his job this time will have to last us.
By: Douglas Logan
Hearing good things through a friend, John at Nice Agents was one of many realtors we’d contacted to interview for the job of helping to buy our first home. After all the interviews, it was an easy decision to make for my wife and I. Over the course of some months, hours of conversations getting to know us, virtual tours of dozens of houses, actual tours of a few dozen more, we settled on a place that fit our needs and came under budget. Not only did we we get great service through John, his recommendations for a mortgage broker, lawyer, and one of many home inspectors to complete our purchase process. They each turned out to be beyond our expectations and went out of their way to see our purchase succeed. I can’t recommend John and his team enough, truly a key part of the success of my family’s story. Thanks John.
By: Rayann Laforce
John Carle is a first class real estate agent! Not only did he sell our home in record time, he went above and beyond to get us into our dream home, in an equally short amount of time. He will make you feel like you are his only priority, and makes the process of selling and purchasing a home a fun experience. Highly recommend!
By: George lund
Darlene Kassian and Nice Agents are awesome!! full stop!! If your a new buyer and need an agent who willing hold your hand and work like crazy to help find that new home, then you need Darlene!
By: Dawn Denise
John cares... that is probably the best statement on how he conducts himself. He listens and provides sound advice from mortgage brokerages to negotiation skills to moving in! He assisted our daughter with her first purchase and made it a most wonderful experience and a beautiful home; he was patient with questions and concerns and his thoughtfulness and knowledge were remarkable. He is truly a nice agent!
By: G G
Steve was absolutely the best realtor for our home purchase. There was no stress, just support and guidance. Truely outstanding.
By: Tomas Dizon
I’ve known John Carle close to 15 years. When I first met him, he helped sell our first home. At that time he was working with Royal Lepage. He stood out for both me and my wife. He went above and beyond and if I remember was able to sell our home in a couple of months. It was this imprint of how well he sold our house that 10 yrs later we needed a realtor to sell our home. My wife truly remembers him and even he remembered us. Went above and beyond again and sold our home in a tough market within 2 months! Then we asked the impossible, to sell my sister’s place. Sold! Or rental property. Sold! And then we referred a friend of ours to him. Sold! John Carle and his team is outstanding. I most definitely recommend him and his team.
By: Ashley Duncan
Steve helped my fiancé and I find our dream home!! He is hardworking and so positive. He made the experience for us so amazing. Thank you so much Steve!!

Nice Agents is the perfect name for this Real Estate Team. John Carle helped us buy a house and helped to make it our home.
