Paul Brinton helped my parents buy and sell their Calgary home back in 2010. Ten years later my parents recommended I work with Paul as well to help me find my first home. Paul gave me tremendous insights on the Calgary real estate market and was very quickly able to find dozens of properties that fit my needs and budget. After a few viewings with Paul I was able to find the perfect home for me. As a first time home buyer Paul made the entire process incredibly simple. From the first phone call to move-in day, Paul always had my best interests in mind and worked hard for me. If you are buying or selling a home in Calgary I would recommend calling Paul Brinton.

Paul is an excellent realtor. I had the pleasure of working with him and his clients in the past. I can confidently say that he always looks out for his clients. Also, very attentive to details! Example: Paul was at every homeowners' meeting to ensure that his clients are happy and that it is a smooth transaction. Paul, I hope to have the opportunity to work with you again soon!
“We were very fortunate and lucky to have Paul as our realtor. Having had multiple realtors prior, Paul by far exceeded our expectations. He personally met up with us to hear what our vision, wishes, and dreams were. With his years of experience, he knew the neighbourhoods, lots, and homes that would be of interest. He goes beyond what is just listed on the market with strategic ways of looking at other opportunities. His response time by phone and email was near immediate. Most importantly though, when it came down to securing our property in a very time sensitive and competitive situation, we were able to get the deal done. Since our purchase, he has continued to stay in touch with us to make sure things are going well. I would highly recommend Paul to other potential buyers and sellers.” Darren & Ashlyn C
We would highly recommend Paul as a real estate agent. He sold our townhouse in Calgary after 10 years of keeping us informed on the market conditions. We live in another city so at times things were challenging but Paul kept us very informed..he managed to do the entire process without us having to travel to Calgary which saved time and money. Always professional and friendly...someone I would recommend to sell your home? Ann & Bob T
Reference Letter for Paul Brinton The following is a reference letter for Paul Brinton. Paul was first referred to us by my father. We were buying our first house and did not know anything about real estate and we really needed someone that would teach us and help us understand the market and what to look for. When I first connected with Paul, I had actually found out that Paul was first introduced to my father through my sister as he had helped her purchase her first home. This helped me feel that I could rely on Paul and that he also had years of experience. By the time we had our first conversation; Paul had already done some homework into the areas we were interested in as he was informed by my father which was a nice surprise. This meant that we could go ahead and already start right away. He sent the portal to us right away which allowed us to view house. After this, we were able to connect with Paul whenever we needed regardless of the time of day. This allowed me and my husband to easily change search criteria if needed. When we first begun to view houses, we found Paul to be accommodating in the viewing times and also flexible if there was a house that we wanted to see sooner. He was always able to get a hold of by phone and email. We saw a number of houses with Paul and one thing that we really appreciated was that he was not in a rush to sell us the first house we saw, it was actually the opposite and often Paul would ask us hard questions about a house we might be interested in to really make sure that we wanted it. He knew what we were looking for and this allowed him to guide us in the right direction even if we were swayed by something else. Because of Paul putting our needs first as opposed to a fast sale, we were finally able to find the right house for us. When it came to purchasing our home, Paul acted quickly to allow us to be first to view the house and put in an offer that night. He also acted quickly and aggressively in the negotiations stage. This helped put our minds at ease, as we knew the process would not take too long. When it came to closing Paul was very helpful and informative. He also helped guide as with next steps and how to move forwards before our possession date. Overall we had a very pleasant experience with Paul as our agent and would definitely recommend him to others. Anne H and Tanner M.
"Paul was very professional, well informed and easy to communicate with during the sale of our late fathers home in Charleswood. His knowledge of the ins and outs of the real estate market proved invaluable when dealing with the many documents and changes we encountered. Thanks Paul. Dave M. & Family."
Paul did a fabulous job representing us as both a seller & a buyer. Our duplex sold within 36 hours (!) during a downturn in the market, largely due to Paul’s ability to realistically price and market our duplex. Paul then did a great job representing us as buyers, working diligently to find us our new home. We were upgrading to a detached family home with a good budget, and Paul patiently showed us a range of houses and neighbourhoods. Not only was he patient, but he worked around our family's health constraints, scheduling showings and houses just a few at a time. When it came time to put in an offer, Paul worked hard on our behalf – and in the end, got us a fair price on a home we love. We are glad to have had Paul as our realtor and would recommend him to anyone. - Thanks Paul! - Alicia & family
In order to properly buy or sell a home, one needs an experienced voice of reason. Paul is a professional who has managed the fallout of buyer impulse and the letdown of seller exuberance. Brinton brings reality, he as lived it. He is prepared, armed with the information one requires to capitalize in todays complicate real estate market. Jana and Darren
It was a blessing that I was referred to Paul when looking for a dependable realtor who is familiar with estate sale. There were 4 obvious challenges: 1) a down housing market in Calgary, 2) selling the house under a probate, 3) the personal representative of the will (me) lives outside Canada, and 4) the house required a good amount of fix up. In spite of numerous challenges, the house was sold within 2 weeks after being listed and at a price that is more than hoped for. Throughout the pre-sale, preparing the house, and marketing the property, Paul was unfailingly responsive, honest, patient and wise. His knowledge and years of experiences in real estate consistently shone through. He made a stressful house sale into a well-planned, well-executed, and confident pursuit with fantastic results. Paul faithfully and patiently followed up with me via emails for months while I waited for the grant of probate from the court. When we finally met, he immediately earned my trust with his professionalism and kindness. He gave me a straightforward assessment on the condition of the house and a cost effective game plan on fixing up the house for sale. He stepped me through the details of his marketing strategy and made smart suggestions on pricing and negotiations. Every time I look back on the house sale, I can’t help but feel grateful for Paul’s experiences and support. Paul, thank you so much for your great support in the sale of my parents house. You were truly exceptional!! Junita D Texas, USA
Paul has been a consummate professional in dealing with the sale of my condo in Calgary. His analysis of the resale market was straightforward and realistic in this difficult time. He was constantly checking for market changes and working to ensure that my condo was positioned to provide the best opportunity for a sale in what is a difficult market. He was always positive and his suggestions were honest and reflected the reality of the market. After an offer had been made, Paul went out of his way to move the documentation forward. As I am currently living in BC, without Paul’s “on top of it” work ethic the sale would not have gone as smoothly as it did. He also went above and beyond his normal realtor duties to support an issue that arose and resolved the issue to the satisfaction of both the buyer and the seller. I would highly recommend Paul as a realtor. His professionalism, attitude and skills are top notch.
Paul gave me excellent professional advice which helped me avoid a risky personal sale, then listed my property and sold it for just a few hundred dollars below list price in less than a week. Paul is a very professional real estate agent with high ethical standards. I would highly recommend Paul to anyone looking for a trustworthy and effective real estate agent.
It was our pleasure to work with Paul Brinton when the time came for us to sell a property owned by the Church. Paul’s professionalism, humour, and friendliness was a great fit for us, and he made the process of selling our property easy and understandable. Paul aggressively represented the church’s interests, yet did so both ethically and politely. In the end, the process of selling our property took only a few days, and we received more than asking price. We would highly recommend Paul Brinton to anyone in search for a real estate agent.
Paul was recommended as our real estate agent by our daughter. Paul was extremely patient with the search of our townhouse villa, as it took over two years (2010 to 2012) to find the unit that perfectly met all our needs. During the search, Paul kept us abreast of the housing market; promptly took us to view new listings and provided valuable suggestion to make our offer. That was called "taking the time" to serve his clients. Paul provided the same high standard of service in assisting us to sell our house in 2014. He provided very sound advice in preparing the house, precise listing information in the MLS website, excellent pricing strategy. We were able to sell the house in two days, at a better price than our expectation. Paul is easy to get along; he is trustworthy, ethical and working hard for his client's best interests. He makes the buying and selling process looks easy!
Paul was very professional & efficient in handling the sale of our old condo and the purchase of a new one. His attention to detail and keeping us on track with dates & deadlines was very much appreciated. With his vast experience in Calgary’s Real Estate market and his negotiating skills, Paul provided us with the comfort level we needed to ensure both transactions were completed to our satisfaction!
We were looking to buy our first home and Paul was recommended to us by several family members he helped in the past. He helped us through the entire process front to back, always answered phone calls and emails promptly and drove us around to look at all our potential homes. Without Paul we would not have found our perfect first home. If we choose to move in the future, Paul will be the first person we call.
It was such a pleasure to have Paul Brinton as our real estate agent. I traveled to Calgary to assist my Aunt in the selling of her home of 55 years. Paul went through the process with us, sharing his experience and knowledge of the market and area in order to give us as much information as he could so that my Aunt could make informed decisions. This was the very first time she had listed a house! His commitment to detail and the personable way he deals with seniors made the sale of my Aunt's home a memorable experience. As well, taking Paul's advice on marketing strategies proved very valuable. I, personally, have never sold a house so quickly and efficiently before. We would both recommend him in a heartbeat!
Buying and/or selling a home is a very emotional and stressful undertaking for most people. Through multiple sales and purchases over the past dozen years, Paul's unwavering professionalism and ethics have provided us with invaluable reassurance as we made these momentous decisions. His ability to maintain these qualities and yet still entertain and connect to his clients with his unique charm and humour are foremost among many reasons why I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking for a real estate agent to trust.
I am writing you about one of your real estate agents. His name is Paul Brinton. He is not only a good real estate agent, but also a very good friend. He not only sells real estate, but also helps hang pictures, fixes lights, takes you to the shopping mall etc. Have found him to be so good with us seniors. Have had dealings with many real estate agents in the past but to us he is the best. I just thought I would tell this.
This is to certify that Paul Brinton (REALTOR®) has helped me to re-locate from a house to a condominium recently and I can not praise him enough for the way he has handled both the sale of my house and the purchase of the condo. He knew exactly what I wanted in a condo and did his best in finding a suitable one. He never tried to pressure me into anything less than what was my stipulated requirement. I must add that he helped me much more that what was called for in his line of duty as my real estate agent, without his thoughtfulness and help the move would have been very difficult. I would have had to depend much more on public transportation etc. etc. I do not hesitate to recommend Paul for his kindness, honesty and integrity.
It is our pleasure to recommend Paul Brinton to anyone, but especially to Seniors, in need of a real estate agent. We too are Seniors. Paul is a very able, knowledgeable, and caring real estate agent. He listens, he understands, and we have every confidence he will always have your best interests in mind. We attended many open houses, and spoke with many real estate agents before we decided to go ahead and buy. When we did the agent who stood out in our minds was Paul. We chose him and have never regretted that decision. When next we need an agent we will call on Paul again.
A s seniors both my wife and I would not hesitate in any way, to recommend Paul Brinton for any real estate transactions, or any other business deals. When my wife and I were looking to buy a condo we talked to a lady we had met, asked if she could tell us how to get to a real estate office. The lady said if you are looking for a place I will give you the name of a person who I have not had any dealings with, but have had so many people tell me how good and fair he was. My wife and I went to see Paul and found out that we had picked the right person. Paul worked very hard getting a nice condo also in selling our mobile home, that we were having a hard time to sell by another real estate. We were very pleased with the way Paul worked that we told a friend who also had Paul sell her home and got her into a condo, and I know how hard Paul worked on that, and how HONEST he is with people. My wife and I as we have said would be pleased to refer Paul Brinton. Thanks Paul.
I worked at a Real Estate company with Paul for several years. At various times he spoke with me about working with seniors, knowing that as a Senior, that I understood their needs better than most. Because of his insight into the special needs of this group, and his desire to learn how to meet these needs with his services, I would gladly recommend him to my family and friends, knowing he would look after their needs not just their sale or purchase.
Lynn and I wish to express our appreciation for the work which you have done in helping us find and purchase our new home in Tuxedo. You took the trouble to listen to our needs and work with us in determining the most suitable type and location of property within our price range. Viewings were arranged conveniently and there was no pressure to make hasty decisions. It was a pleasurable experience with a happy ending. Thank-you, Paul.
We decided to work with Paul Brinton following a disappointing experience with another real estate agent. We heard that he was energetic and thorough and these were some of the reasons we chose Paul. We couldn't believe how well he was able to focus on the types of homes we were interested in while staying well within our price range. He found the house we were looking for very quickly and let us make the decision to buy without pressuring us in any way. We would highly recommend him, and will definitely use his services in the future.
Paul Brinton worked for, and with us to achieve a quick and equitable sale. He effectively blended sound strategy and 'market sense' with energy, integrity and an emphasis on service; he is truly a dynamo in the Calgary real estate market.
