"Customer-first service"

Selling your home and planning a move can be extremely stressful. Jay and Savannah’s experience, professionalism and customer-first service made the process stress free. Jay and his team far exceeded my expectations as far as the price received and speed at which my house sold. I highly recommend Jay’s team when choosing someone to manage your most prized asset.


-Ron Hozjan, Calgary

Thanks Jay - We love our new home!

My wife and I recently purchased a home with the assistance of Jay Magnussen. Jay was a pleasure to work with and really worked to ensure that we found the right house for our family. We never once felt pressured to buy and in fact quite the opposite. Jay genuinely had our best interests in mind and was not out to simply make a sale. Jay is very knowledgeable in the community and in home buying in general. Jay has a keen eye for detail and can and will point out some not so obvious defects in a home to ensure that you’re making a well informed home buying decision. Thanks Jay, we love our new home!

"Above and Beyond"

Jay went above and beyond to help us find the perfect home.  He is honest, trustworthy, and more than competent - and his patience was greatly appreciated!  We enjoyed working with Jay, and as a result of our positive experience, will definitely refer Jay and his team to friends and family.  Thank you for everything!


-John Schubach & Terri Shaul, Okotoks

"With Jay & Savannah you won't go wrong"

We are so very delighted that we chose The Jay Magnussen Real Estate Team when we decided to sell our house and purchase a condo. Jay and Savannah did a suberb job in giving us advice, direction and service. The pictures Savannah took of our property were phenomenal and the feedback regarding any viewings of the house we were selling she provided promptly. Jay was never too busy to return our calls or arrange for us to see (more than once) the condo in which we were  interested.  To make sure all details were being worked out with our sale and purchase, he called us several times from out of the country while he was on vacation.  He sure was hands-on! 


We would never hesitate to have this team work for us again, and we are proud to recommend them to others.  With Jay and Savannah you won't go wrong!


-David & Ruth King, Okotoks

"Highly, highly recommended!"

My husband and I have moved several times throughout our lives and used many different Realtors.  The team of Jay Magnussen & his staff were definitely a new and very positive experience!  Jay and his team really went out of their way to “market and sell our house”.  Jay went above and beyond. Communication between my husband and I and Jay’s team was exceptional.  The pictures taken of our home were very professional and outstanding. We could not be more pleased with this great team!  Highly, highly recommended!


Jerry & Tara Epp, Okotoks, AB

"A true professional"

In the high stakes game of real estate, Jay shines with integrity and optimism. A positive attitude goes a long way in life and Jay clearly demonstrates how this same approach works in business. Jay will always be the type of true professional that I will continue to contact for their real estate needs in the local market.
-Mark Hogan

"Above average service"

Jay is one of the most honest, trustworthy and competent business people that I have ever met. Jay puts his clients first and consistently goes out of his way to provide above average service. Jay is active in the community and is a leader in promoting Okotoks as a business community. His support and effort with local youth and particularly the Okotoks Oilers hockey team have made the team one of the top rated teams in the province. This is because the focus is on values and the overall growth of the players, not just winning hockey games.
His values and integrity are evident in his business, his family life and his community service. I have always recommended Jay as a real estate advisor to friends and clients and I will continue to do so. I know that he will always do the best that he can for his clients and in any endeavors that he takes on.
Chuck Holmstrom & Shelley Vold

"Active in the community"

Jay and his team are very active in the community volunteering for many different organizations. Jay helps with the Annual Foothills Diversity Track Meet, the Okotoks Minor Hockey Assoc., Okotoks Jr. 'A' Oilers, Okoktoks Minor Basketball Assoc. and more. Jay is a perfect example of what a good volunteer is and without volunteerism a community could not thrive.
Bill McAlpine, Former Mayor of Okotoks

"The type of person you can trust & rely on"

I have found Jay to be a very competent and reliable individual. He is not only trustworthy and very ethical in his personal and business dealings, but also very reliable. I have known Jay for 15 years initially meeting him when coaching minor baseball together. Recently he was instrumental in selling my home in a very difficult real estate market and has also helped my daughter purcahse her first home.
I will continue to refer Jay and his team to my friends and family as he is the type of person you can trust and rely on.
Hector & Donna Campacci

"Professional & courteous"

We truly enjoyed working with Jay and as a result of our experience we have had no hesitation recommending him to any of our friends who have been thinking of moving and will continue to do so in the future. Similarly we will have no hesitation in deciding to use him again if we see an opportunity to make a move in the future. We recieved very professional and courteous assistance from Jay Magnussen when we needed it. 
Justin & Anne Snelling

"The best service I have received"

The slogan in Jay's advertising is 'Guaranteed Service - Outstanding Results', and that is exactly what we received from Jay. My wife and I had the opportunity to personally deal with Jay when searching for a home when we moved to Okotoks, and were treated with first class throughout the process. We relied on Jay again to sell that same home when we had to move out East.
His integrity to deal with clients and focus on their needs as opposed to just getting a sale is a unique one in today's market. I have dealt with numerous realtors in my career and various moves, and this is far and away the best service I have received, and continue to recommend friends and colleagues to Jay.
Gordon & Keeley Brost

"Honest & trustworthy"

It is easy to see why Jay is regarded so highly in his profession as he exemplifies those characteristics necessary to be a successful realtor in a competitive market. We have now known Jay Magnussen both personally and professionally for over eight years and in that time Jay have proven time and time again that he is a person of honesty and integrity. In fact, we were so impressed with Jay's professionalism and diligence that we contracted his services twice to sell our homes. Jay is honest and trustworthy and we were always confident that Jay had our interests in heart and mind before his own.
Dylan & Lana Sinclair

"Steps ahead of the rest"

Mr. Magnussen is a leader in his field, and the professionalism, the integrity and the genuine love he has for his career will undoubtedly keep him steps ahead of the rest. I had the privilege of meeting Mr. Magnussen last year after a recommendation of his services by some close friends. The praise that they had used in respect to Mr. Magnussen was enormous and as it were, James had no difficulty standing up to every expectation. At the time we were introduced I was a young, single, student - not exactly ideal property buying potential. I had a history of being treated as though my business was less than desirable as it wasn't a huge market investment. Mr Magnussen was honest, he was straight forward, and he genuinely took an interest in my business. I've never felt so important and secure in my decisions as I did when I was working with James.

"Stress free"

Jay and his team made the process of selling and buying a home stress free. They were a pleasure to work with and always supplied us with great advice and guidance as we moved through a very involved process. I would highly recommend Jay’s services and expertise to anyone interested in buying or selling a home.


Rob & Laureen Kirk

"Will continue to recommend Jay"

Jay & Savannah: Thank you for your patience and persistence in helping me to locate the perfect house for my family in SW Calgary. Not only did you find us the right house, since then you have done a great job finding homes for two members of our immediate family and become great friends of mine. I will continue to recommend you to all of my family and friends with the utmost confidence.

"Great Experience"

Derek Stuart helped me find an amazing condo within my price range. Derek was professional, dependable and honest in every stage of the home buying process. Therefore,
I was able to find the perfect home in the right neighborhood. When it comes time to sell, I
will be sure to hire Derek because of his expertise in the field. I would also refer Derek to
anyone looking for a professional realtor.

"Exceptionally satisified clients"

Jay, you spent the time with us to learn about our family as well as our lifestyles while driving me all over Calgary to give me a feel for the various areas. Your extensive knowledge of the various areas of Calgary, from the age of the housing, demographics, various community infrastructures and the like, was exactly what we needed. Your willingness to take the time and go the extra mile so we could make well informed educated decision on which communities suited our current situation was of invaluable assistance. Once again thank you for not just helping find us the right house but in fact the right home. 

-Keith & Eleanor Pearce, Calgary, AB

"Upfront and honest"

I have known Jay for a number of years and he has helped us buy and sell a number of houses in this time.  During those transactions we found Jay to be one of the most diligent realtors we have encountered.  He not only provided top notch service which allowed our properties to sell in short order, he was upfront and honest about the current market situation and our particular property that we were attempting to sell.


Jay truly cared about our situation which was refreshing as buying and selling a home is one of the most important transactions a person does.  We would not hesitate at all to use Jay’s services again and have in fact referred him to a colleague who was selling his property.  


-Lyle Buchholz, Okotoks, AB

"Courteous, professional & diligent"

I have known Jay to be courteous, professional and diligent in our business dealings. Jay is honourable and trustworthy, which is an essential quality in the real estate industry. I am confident referring Jay to my friends and family members as a realtor.
