Congratulations! You Did It! 🎊 🎉

Experience the fleeting sense of calm. You deserve it.

The hard work for you is finding a reputable and proficient selling team to list your home. Your part is done.

Selling your home quickly, painlessly, and at the highest possible price is our job.

 

Get Top Dollar for Your Home

 Hundreds of other Fort McMurray homeowners agree: the right team makes all the difference. Partnering with the best team of listing agents is what will make that “for sale” sign fly off your lawn, rather than being an eyesore for six months or more.

We’re the best team of listing agents in the area – our homeowners believe it, and our success rate proves it! In fact, during the housing market slump of 2015 (a time when the community assumed that it was impossible to sell), we sold close to a dozen homes at full list price, with several fetching more than the listed price!

If you look at what we do, it’s pretty simple.
We put your home in front of as many qualified buyers as possible, on our dime.

    It was a snowy day in February of 2019 when I first met Erin Ogren in the Safeway parking lot as she was parking her "wrapped" A Team car. The A Team at Remax had been recommended to me by some friends who had sold their house successfully through them. Since that first meeting Erin has been the most attentive agent I have ever used. Today's housing market is a difficult one to navigate and Erin suggested strategies that were ultimately successful within 3 months of listing with her and the A team. I can enthusiastically pass that same recommendation on to anyone who wishes to list their house in Fort McMurray.

    After attempting to sell our home several times we were recommended to try Breanna and we are so glad we did! She took the impossible job of selling our home and did it in 19 days! Her honestly and professionalism is like no other. If you are looking to sell your property in Fort Mcmurray, hands down Breanna is your girl. Thank you so much again for your hard work we appreciate it more then you know.
    The A-team was excellent! Breanna listened to our needs as sellers, helped us understand the best way to go about it, and showed us all of the numbers! Very analytical approach to selling your home and completely open and honest!

    9 months after first review: due to work relocation we needed to sell our home much sooner than we had originally thought. The A Team to the rescue! Breanna's marketing strategy and professionalism in handling our individual needs was just superb.We needed to sell our home in short timeframe and we sold it on the very last day for a great price in a uncertain market. Without the help of Breanna and The A Team we truly don't think we would have accomplished this goal. We have now seen both sides of how the A Team opperates their business and I have to say they have gone above and beyond in every aspect to meet our needs.Thank you Breanna and The A Team!!!

    Our family would like to take the time to thank Breanna and the A Team. Our family waited 2 long years to get our home rebuilt, but during that time we moved on and started a life elsewhere. So like many others we wanted to sell our home as fast as we could. Breanna made that possible and our house sold in just 53 days! It was a smooth experience, all our questions were answered and we were never left wondering, we would recommend the A Team to anyone selling. Thanks again.

    Aaron has been extremely helpful with selling our house. From answering messages all day every day, to dealing with numerous issues on the buyer's side, to picking up garbage as the snow melted since we weren't living at the house. It felt like we were having a close friend working with us. I would definitely have Aaron sell another house for us.

    Aaron did a great job selling my home. I had two offers within two weeks and he took the time to explain the market, with no pressure of choosing him as a realtor. He was always there to provide advise and recommendations. Would definitely work with him again to help sell a house.

    We met Breanna in December of 2017, when after viewing one of the A-Team’s amazing sale videos, I decided we had better take a look at the home in person! While we didn’t end up purchasing that particular home, it set things in motion for us to sell our current home and purchase our next. It really was a no-brainer when it came to deciding to list with The A-Team, Breanna’s listing presentation inspired knowledge, confidence, and a complete sense of trust. Thanks to the A-Team’s awesome marketing skills, we had a ton of interest and even a couple offers early on, but we put our trust in Breanna and ended up selling our home at the perfect time, for the perfect price! Thank you Breanna, for making the sale of our home as stress free as it could have been, it truly was a pleasure working with you!

    Breanna guided us through the selling process and helped us sell our house in less than one week. In the past we had sold 3 out of province homes privately so we were hesitant to use a realtor, but believed it was necessary in Fort McMurray. Breanna was professional, very knowledgeable, and well prepared. She provided realistic market information that helped us price our home appropriately. We also really liked that she worked with a team which we believe helped give our home more exposure. The marketing she provided was excellent. I would most definitely use Breanna again and strongly recommend her if you want your house sold.

    This team goes above and beyond!! They are knowledgeable about everything, and if they aren’t they will find someone who is. They put in the extra effort to help you get your sale and get any conditions of the sale organized. Breanna made selling our home an easy process, especially with us not living in Fort McMurray.

    THESE AGENTS ARE UNBELIEVABLE!!! Brianna WORKED SO ABOVE AND BEYOND FOR US!!!! Our house was an incredible challenge to sell due to all the work it needs, (it was our parents we were selling for their estates) and we had little to no interest due to all the effort it needs. She worked day and night to help us sell it and called us daily to give us updates and feedback from people that would view the home.Tonight it was officially sold!!!!! It means a lot to us as it’s one of the final steps to closing our parents estate. If anyone is ever wanting to sell a home, Brianna is the best agent in Fort McMurray to do it for you!!!Thank you Brianna for all of your hard work!!!!!

    I was very impressed with how quickly our home sold. I give most of the credit to Aaron and the A- Team. The movie of the house and the pictures were professional quality. A lot of people viewed the movie and pictures within the first 24 hours and I believe we had around 10 showings within the first two days. I am highly recommending Aaron and the A-Team to anyone who is selling.

    We decided to chose the A-Team for our recent listing and we were extremely satisfied with the professional services Breanna provided. She was very knowledgeable and guided us through selling our vacant lot. She provided honest feedback and helped us stay competitive which in turned helped us sell our property and fast! We will definitely be calling the A-Team to list our second property for sale in the near future!
    Thanks to Breanna for always being available for any questions or concerns that we had. Very professional and we are very pleased with your services. Thanks. All the best.

    I first heard about the A-Team during the evacuation, they were ones that were helping with keeping people updated. After that I contacted them though Facebook, Breanna never stopped marketing my house, if you were looking for a house in Fort Mac you probably saw my house a couple hundred times or more.

    Just purchased our first rental with the help of the A-Team. Denise was our agent and we can't say enough good things about her. Always responded to my calls/messages fast! Provided guidance when needed and networked with the selling agent to make the transition as smooth as possible. She is just a genuine person and a real sweetheart. Would definitely recommend her for any of your real estate needs!

    Our home sold so fast it made my head spin. Denise(the new girl on the team) was available all hours, early morning late at night , it did not matter. On those chilly mornings Denise even brought us coffee to our appointments. And it never felt like she was alone with the whole A-Team backing her up. Great job guys.

    We had the pleasure of working with all three members of the A-Team. We were very impressed with their knowledge of the market and their honest assessment of it. We were always informed every step of the way. They were available day or night for questions and concerns. Just over all a very positive experience with three lovely people. Would not hesitate to use them again or recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell.

    Slept amazing our first night in our home. Such an amazing feeling to wake up go out on my front lawn with a fresh coffee knowing that it's mine all that hard work for the last year finally paid off. A big thank you to everyone that came and helped with the move still lots to do but it's coming along nicely. A huge thank you to the a-team we came into this not knowing what to be expecting. Me and Ashley were the blind leading the blind. Every question we had no matter what the time of day or night they were right there to help and answer our call. Thanks a-team for making this experience an amazing one. Highly highly recommend the a-team to anyone buying or selling there home.

    Keeping You in Mind

    From the highest quality real estate marketing videos to targeted placement within YouTube, our video showcase of your property is delivered to thousands of potential buyers.

    Did you know that our ads have popped up over 5 million times and counting? Statistically speaking, somewhere in Fort McMurray, there is someone watching one of our high-quality video listings right now. It’s helped us build a recognizable brand around the community.

    Our videos aren’t normal: We shoot to make the best videos in the world and we produce them in-house so they’re unbeatable. We produce a lot of videos. We make buyers fall in love with your home well before they get on the phone to book a viewing.

    Facebook

    Show Your Home to the World

    Fort Mac buyers are on Facebook. Our listed properties are ALL over their news feed. We don’t solely rely on our 10k+ social media followers, even though we could: the majority of those followers are active buyers, and ALL of those followers likely know an active buyer.

    Instead, we push targeted ads in front of everyone in the community using Facebook. This means tens of thousands of eyes, and a surefire source of potential buyers for your home!

    Instagram

    The Future of Real Estate Marketing

    While not as emphasised as Facebook and YouTube, Instagram is a rapidly growing place to showcase your home. With a comparatively young audience, Instagram is where we’ll find the younger buyers ready to move into a home of their own.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Should I be worried that my home will not sell?

    No. If we don’t think your home will sell for a given list price, we will advise you against going through the inconvenience/stress of listing then expiring. If we list, we should sell. Our clients have an extremely high success rate.

    How can we compete with foreclosure listings?

    Your home has strengths over bank-owned listings. Our job is to find these relative advantages, and exploit them.

    Are prices going up or falling right now? Will the market go back up?

    Your specialist listing agent will be able to advise you exactly what is happening to the value of your home specifically, at the precise time that you contact us.

    Can you advise me on home improvements & staging?

    Absolutely! Our professional listing agents know what buyers like, and part of their role pre-listing is to help you with figuring out what to do, and what not to bother with.

    How long is a listing contract? Am I locked in?

    3 or 6 months, but you’re never locked in: A special thing about working with The A-Team is that we allow people to de-list at any time and for any reason!

    If we list our home, do we owe money if it doesn’t sell?

    Nope. Never. We got into business understanding that you win most, and occasionally lose one. The risk is on us, and we would never bill you for marketing services if we haven’t successfully sold your home for you.

    How long does it take for you to list my home?

    From the moment you call, if the stars align, it can be a few days. We do quality work though, so we advise against rushing (in most cases) so as to get you the most bang for our marketing buck.
