"Throughout our various real estate transactions, Jackie was highly motivated, always prepared, informed, professional and driven. There was a personal sense of pride in her work and level of customer service. We hold Jackie in the highest regard. We have and will continue to recommend her to our friends and family."
Amy & Mike C. - Brentwood and Tuscany
"We had the opportunity to work with Jacqueline Thorogood in the process of selling our home and purchasing as well. She was very knowledgeable and was able to provide many resources that helped us prepare our home to sell, including a staging consultant and a professional photographer. Jacqueline took the time and care with details such as high end brochures that displayed our home and photos well and attracted buyers right away.
Buying and selling a home can be very stressful, however Jacqueline was always very positive, encouraging and made the experience fun for our family. We are grateful for her kind heart and thorough knowledge and highly recommend her to anyone buying or selling their home."
Bram & Jennifer M. - Aspen Woods and Strathcona
"From beginning to end, Jacqueline was professional, knowledgeable and helpful. We have worked with other realtors but none have provided the value that Jacqueline did. Her client service is exceptional. Thanks to Jacqueline, we were able to sell our home very quickly for 99.5% of the asking price. I would recommend her to anyone looking to present the best version of their home."
Sarah & Dana B. - Capitol Hill
We bought and sold with Kodette and Jackie earlier this year and couldn’t be happier with the level of service and overall experience. From start to finish (and even beyond), we felt that we were valued clients. Questions or concerns were addressed promptly and knowledgeably, requests were met with enthusiasm and attentiveness, and the quality of our listing, including the photos and virtual tour, were top notch! Throughout the process, we felt very confident that Kodette and Jackie were looking after our best interest and would recommend them as your trusted partners for your next real estate transaction.
J & C Frydman - Aspen Woods and Elbow Valley
The sale of our home could not have been easier, thanks to the guidance of Kym Barton. She was professional, knowledgeable and extremely available and prompt with everything as she guided us every step of the way through the process of selling. The fact that our home sold in only 48 hours after listing is a testament to Kym being such a fantastic realtor!
Tracey Stein, Calgary
Barb & Jackie did a wonderful job in selling our home. They expertly had our home staged and also did a beautiful photo shoot/brochure, together with a virtual tour. Our experience with Sotheby’s was great and we would highly recommend Barb Richardson and her team.
Maureen Crowshaw, Calgary
Working with Jacqueline and the Sotheby's team was excellent at every step of the way.
Mary Anne Moser, Bragg Creek
It was pleasure to work with both Kym and Barb on the sale of our house. Kym was our selling agent and made everything seem easy and straight forward during a very stressful time at the beginning of COVID-19. She is incredibly knowledgeable and explained everything so it was easy to understand. I will definitely use her services again and highly recommend Kym to anyone who is looking to sell or buy a house, condo or apartment.
Stan McFarlane, Calgary
The massive volume of work, from property evaluation, listing, marketing, showings, reporting and overall coordination was managed in a professional, diligent, capable, collaborative, informative and performance oriented manner. Jackie was a pleasure to work with and I could always count on her to deliver on all commitments. Jackie and the team provided ample opportunity to engage in process and competitor checks along the journey and implemented improved marketing opportunities that led to increased showings and broader media interest in my property. Throughout the listing timeframe, Jackie provided excellent guidance and direction, persevered and stayed positive and lent a helping hand when I was away or was time constrained in getting my home ready for a planned showing. Jackie's knowledge and expertise in all aspects of real estate transactions related to my property and her honesty, reliability and humble approach led to a successful sales outcome. I would highly recommend Jackie and the Sotheby's International Realty team for anyone planning to purchase or sell their treasured real estate properties. Thanks kindly to all involved and with a sense of relief, I can now turn my attention to future plans and activities. Blair Bichel.

In an especially challenging market, Jackie and Barb continuously steered us in the right direction with the sale of our home. Their professionalism was greatly appreciated - from tips for staging to beautiful photos, brochures, signage and timely open houses. They knew exactly how to market our home and had a plan from the beginning. Their patience and support with all of our questions was very much appreciated. This is a market where one needs experienced realtors - it showed ! We highly recommend Jackie and Barb of the Richardson Group at Sotheby’s International Canada.
Diane Rebryna, Calgary
We have used Jackie for two house purchases and have nothing but the highest praise for her! She is honest, professional, diligent, patient and supportive and she's not "pushy" at all. When we ran into a problem literally the day before closing on a property we were purchasing, Jackie went above and beyond in helping us resolve it and continued to follow up with us and offer her support even though it was out of her hands and with the lawyers. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone looking for a fantastic realtor!
Robyn and Paul, Calgary
We loved working with this team! Super professional, classy, supportive, with hands-on services. I feel working with Sotheby's made quite a difference in the quick sale of our home! Thank you Sotheby's!

Barb and Jackie impressed us at the initial meeting, they were very relatable and immediately offered a strong marketing plan. The use of a stager to help us put the final touches to our home was invaluable. Throughout the selling process the team kept us informed of any feed back from showings and open houses, they were diligent following any leads with prospective buyers, offering sound advice on sale strategy. They were always collaborative and respectful, we would definitely recommend Jackie and Barb to anyone looking for great Real Estate representatives.

Kym did an amazing job in selling my home in Cranston in an extremely challenging market. She worked tirelessly to ensure I got the best price for my home. Would definitely use her services again. ~Lesley Barlass, Calgary
I was looking for a 3 bedroom home with 3 bathrooms that was near the LRT. Kym found exactly what I was looking for in Somerset and negotiated an excellent price -Jack B.-Calgary
Giving well deserved accolades to Barb Richardson and Jacqueline Thorogood for providing me with an outstanding experience in the sale of my home. They were professional, dedicated, experienced, hard working and detail orientated. The process to list was very involved. It was amazing to see this team in action from setting up appointment times with, for example, the photographer ( who was also amazing !!! ) to every other detail required to being it all to fruition and put in on the market. I met with a total of three agents before deciding on the team of Barb and Jackie with Sotheby's. They stood out from the others in MANY ways but most apparent was their genuine interest in my property. This was by far the most superior experience I have encountered selling a property. At the end of the day and looking back, their advice, knowledge and energy has left a warm positive feeling of "job well done". Anyone who wants an exceptional experience in what is being called by some as a tough market, bringing on this team and this company will leave you with a very different opinion. Many thanks extended to Barb and Jackie.

Kym Barton has sold 2 homes for me and helped me buy 2 homes, I wouldn’t use anyone else. She goes above and beyond to make sure everything goes smoothly for her clients. If you are looking for an honest, professional and compassionate realtor who gives 150% she is the one! Kym worked tirelessly for me until we were able to find the perfect homes for my children and I - J.Mantei, Calgary
We recently engaged Kym’s services to sell our condo. She was extremely knowledgeable about the area, the market activity and the current market conditions. She was hands on throughout the entire process and made sure everything went as smooth as possible. She was professional, diligent and very pleasant to work with. We would not hesitate to recommend Kym for anyone looking to sell their home. ~Kevin & Celeste Yano, Calgary
"A home is one of the most personal purchases for a family and the process in which a home is procured is equally important. There are so many homes on the market and finding the right one depends on the support you get. Our family was in the process of moving back to the country and finding a suitable property that met all our needs was close to impossible, until we met Jacqueline. She has the qualities that are seldom found in any real estate agent. Jacqueline personalized our wish list and started shopping for our home as if it was hers. Making such an important judgement when you are overseas is very hard but Jacqueline guided and advised us with sincerity. She provided us with her justified opinions, all related property documentation and even recorded videos to give us the feel of the home. The support we received from her extended even after the purchase. She exerted all efforts to ensure that we, as a family, were satisfied and comfortable in our choice and decision. We have been in our property for over six months and we can say that our home is actually our dream home. Through this whole pleasant process we did not only gain a dream home, but also a true friend. Thank you Jackie for all of your efforts and support."
Carolina R. & Charbel H. - Watermark at Bearspaw
In this terrible Covid market and all the Condos on the market I was convinced my condo would never sell. Kym was really great and got this done. She is very professional and went over and above any realtor experience I have had in the past.
Lynda Neilson, Calgary
Kodette was a pleasure to have as my real estate agent; she never left any questions unanswered and always responded promptly. I would highly recommend her to my friends and family. This was my first home purchase and she showed me at least 15 homes, until we found the right fit that checked all of my boxes. Kodette focussed on my needs and worked extremely hard to find the perfect home for me. S. Holmes
Kodette is an exceptional realtor who always takes the extra steps to make sure that everyone is receiving the best care possible. She is patient, caring and always goes beyond her responsibilities as a realtor. She was there to help me every step of the way in my buying process, and I wouldn’t have been able to buy the best home possible for my family without her support and knowledge. Anyone who has the opportunity to work with Kodette is fortunate to have her on their team. Natalie Vila
From the moment we contacted her, Kodette made us feel like we were her #1 priority. She took the time to find houses that fit the description of what we wanted, and spent an entire weekend showing us our options. Kodette’s enthusiasm for her job was obvious, and made the whole house-hunting experience enjoyable. We are so grateful for Kodette’s help, and have recommended her to friends who are beginning their own home searches in Calgary. Andrèa Sampson
Kodette is an exceptional realtor, with knowledge of the housing market and empathy for our family while going through a move. We’ve never had a good experience with realtors and the minute we met Kodette we knew she would put our family first and help make this sale/purchase a positive one. She sold our house before it was put on the market due to her large Instagram following and large span of people she knows around Calgary. She was able to answer all our questions, negotiations went smooth, and processions were easy. We cannot say thank you enough for having made this experience a positive one. K&K Kisio

"We had the pleasure of working with Jackie to successfully market and sell our house in a very difficult market and in a short period of time. From our first meeting we were impressed with Jackie's analytical mind set, her great market insights and the world class marketing tools at her disposal. Her care about our property and attention to detail resulted in a closing sale within 3% of our asking price. In a crowded field of real estate agents, Jackie is a professional who stands head and shoulders above the rest."
Chris & Carmella T. - Oakridge
"It is our pleasure to recommend Jackie Thorogood for all your real estate needs! We first met Jackie a year ago, when we chose her as a real estate agent to assist us in selling our home and buying a new home to accommodate our growing family. Jackie recognized how difficult it was for us to leave our old home where we had so many wonderful memories. She carefully assessed our real estate needs and together we made a solid plan on how to find our next dream home! Jackie’s caring, tactful and open-minded approach definitely made the transition to our new home less stressful! She has an impressive knowledge of the real estate market and great people skills!
Jackie is personable, charismatic and genuinely committed to her clients! She has excellent organizational skills, and we marveled at her ability to anticipate our needs! Jackie went above and beyond to accommodate our very busy life schedules. For example, she made herself available for weekends and late evening appointments and even met with us during holiday hours! We spent countless hours looking at home after home after home, but not once did we feel hurried or pressured by Jackie. She took time to complete previews of the potential homes we saw so that our time was not wasted looking at properties that were not suitable.
Jackie’s impeccable taste and attention to detail served us well in preparing our property for open house viewings. She went from top to bottom of the house every single time prior to viewing to ensure that everything looked presentable and appealing to the potential buyer. She carefully and skillfully choreographed our transition to the new house, ensuring every detail in the paperwork was addressed appropriately. In short, Jackie is exactly the person you would want and need for the most thorough and professional real estate experience!"

Barb Richardson and her great team..at Sotheby’s. I decided to deal with the area specialists..I was fortunate. The team sold my house in Elbow Valley. We had two offers and no problems.. (Jacquie ran my hard copies).. A nice clean sale.. Purchase of the new house was much more complicated. Barb handled these delicate problems beautifully.. I simply can't say enough good things.. about Barb and her very professional team at Sotheby’s.
