Awesome Experience, Great Realtor!
Working with Lisa has been an awesome experience. She listened very well to what we were looking for in a home. She was very patient with us and never gave up on finding the right place for us. We're super happy with our new home. Lisa is a great Realtor, thanks very much.

Lisa is an amazing realtor!
Lisa is an amazing realtor! She was very patient while I looked for the perfect home, and she never pressured me to buy something that I didn't love. I'll definitely be using her services again when it's time to sell!

She makes the process easy, clear, and ultimately fun!
Buying a new home and moving is never an easy choice or an easy venture. However, we lucked out when we found Lisa. We had a unique circumstance with parents being involved in the purchase of the home, and they live out of Province. The patience and dedication that Lisa showed all four of us involved was beyond all of our expectations! She listened to our wants and needs, she put so much effort into communicating with all four us, time into our home buying process, and she made us feel like we were her only and most important clients! My entire family would recommend Lisa to any of our friends and colleagues in the Calgary area looking to buy their next home; she makes the process easy, clear, and ultimately fun! Thank you Lisa for all your hard work and help finding us our new home!

Amazing realtor and an amazing person to deal with!!
With this being our first house purchase together Mark and I didn’t know what to expect from a realtor. We did know that we didn’t want someone who would push us into something we didn’t want or couldn’t afford, as we had both heard of stories of this happening.
Meeting Lisa for the first time was a really nice experience. She had a warm friendly smile and was very easy to talk to, and before we even began getting into the big details she made sure that we were comfortable with her and felt at ease. She brought to the table her integrity and commitment to us as our realtor.
Coming into this not knowing what we were doing and having no idea what kind of questions to ask, she helped guide us into the right direction as to what we should be looking for in a house. We wanted to stay in the neighborhood that we had been renting in, and the places went up for sale, sold just as quick. So anytime a new house came up she would make sure that we got in there right away to view it. She was never pushy or over bearing when we were looking at houses and quickly realized if we weren’t into the house and was quick to let us know we weren’t committed to having to walk through it if we didn’t want to. She stepped back and let us get a feel for the house we were looking at, her opinion was always welcomed and she gave us her honest opinion every time which we appreciated!!!
Lisa was an amazing realtor and an amazing person to deal with!! We highly recommend her to anyone we know who is looking to purchase a house!!

Lisa made us a priority and kept us informed
We worked with Lisa for the purchase of our first home. We appreciated her patience with us to define our search criteria! This meant looking at many properties. When searching Lisa would compile lists for us to look through and arranged multiple visits so that we could see different floor plans and find the best place for us.
In a competitive market Lisa made us a priority and would show us properties as soon as possible. When choosing to make a offer Lisa explained the process and kept us informed. Never was she pushy or did we feel that we were forced into a decision as she always wanted to make sure we would be happy in the place we purchased.
We are very happy with purchase of our first home !
Thank you Lisa,
Blake and Nicole
Five words to describe Lisa: Knowledgeable, Organized, Straight shooter, Patient, Approachable
This is the second time that Lisa has helped us to buy a home in Calgary. The first time was in 2005 when she helped us purchase our first townhouse condo. Ever since then Lisa always made an effort to check in with us and let us know that when we were ready to make the next step, she would be more than willing to help us out.
We called on Lisa again this year to help us sell our townhouse Condo and help us purchase a detached home. We had never sold a home before and Lisa took the time to provide us with advice on how to make our home “show home” worthy, provided market reports/analysis and even brought a professional photographer in to ensure we had the best chance of selling our home. Lisa gave us a deadline to get our home ready by and she was so valuable during this overwhelming time that we nicknamed her ‘the Taskmaster’. Needless to say our home sold within six days for the highest price that a condo had ever gone for in our Complex and that is thanks in part to Lisa’s ‘spot on’ advice.
Once our Condo sale was finalized we had the exciting task of finding a home to move into within 60+ days. We told Lisa our criteria and she was able to narrow our search down until we found the perfect home. Once again Lisa walked us through the buying process, she was always available to answer our questions, look at homes and solve any concerns that we had even at 11pm at night!
Lisa is not just our realtor; we call her our friend because she took our home selling and home buying process very personally. We would not hesitate to refer Lisa to anyone that we know and if we ever buy another home, Lisa will be the first person that we call.

An effective negotiator on our behalf
After trying out several agents who didn't click with us, Lisa was a refreshing change. She was happy to work with our schedule, was always available when we needed her with quick responses, and was an effective negotiator on our behalf. As first-time-home-buyers, Lisa was able to clearly answer all of our questions, and made the whole process much easier to understand. When it is time to purchase our next house, Lisa will be our first call!

We always felt supported to make our own informed decisions
As first time homebuyers, we really needed a realtor who would guide us. We bought our home in a “seller’s market” and that often left us feeling like we were at a disadvantage, but Lisa really helped us feel like we had control. Lisa went beyond her job description and provided us with sound advice and support during what was the most important decisions of our lives, to find and buy a house. Lisa made herself available to coach us through the many decisions we had to make. She always respected our own thoughts and decisions, and was never pushy. She was an advisor, someone who knew the market, and someone who helped us come to a decision that was right for us.
Lisa was always available. She answered emails, texts, and phone calls within an hour or two. She was always polite, friendly, and easy to talk to. Lisa is a really relatable and kind person. On the other side of that, she was always logical, clear, and factual. We felt that we could trust Lisa.
Another thing I really valued about Lisa was her level-headedness. The first time I met her she seemed very calm and confident. This was very helpful for two nervous first time homebuyers who could barely contain their excitement. This quality of Lisa’s continued throughout our work with her. She was able to show us properties that amazed us at first glance while guiding us to see the very real reasons these homes were not for us. We never felt pressured, we always felt supported to make our own informed decisions.
Most importantly, Lisa got us results. We actually overlooked the listing for the home we finally bought, but Lisa went above and beyond to look into a property in the area we wanted and in our price range, encouraging us to give it a look. When we walked in, we just KNEW this was our home, and it was really all thanks to Lisa.
The actual process of buying our home was really intense, there were lots of things to do. Lisa was completely available to us at this very stressful time, guiding us along the way and making sure everything got done. I would like to mention that at this time we knew that Lisa was also helping another buyer put in their offer, and she was very skilled at balancing two very busy clients. The whole time we still felt like we were Lisa’s top priority. Lisa advocated for us to get the best deal possible, and we felt she was always fighting for us to get what we needed.
I would definitely recommend Lisa as a realtor. She is skilled, she is very enjoyable to work with, and she will go above and beyond to get you the home you want. We will always look back fondly on our time working with Lisa. She made buying our first home enjoyable and easy.

We can’t thank Lisa enough for helping us find our perfect home.
We had used Lisa eight years ago when we needed to upsize after the birth of our twins. When we decided that we would like to look for a property outside the city limits it was an easy decision to use Lisa again. She absolutely had our best interests at heart and truly took the time to understand what we were looking for. She was incredibly patient as we looked at house after house in search of the one that would suit our long list of needs.
Once we found the home we were looking for she handled every step of the purchase process competently and efficiently. She worked with us to ensure that our current home would sell quickly and we were ecstatic when it sold within a week for very close to our asking price.
Buying and selling a home can be stressful, but Lisa made it an enjoyable experience for us. We do not hesitate to recommend Lisa to our friends and family every chance we get!

Hardwork, Dedication & Patience
It is with great pleasure that my husband Ken and I recommend Lisa Merrett as a Realtor and agent for anyone planning to buy or sell their home. Amongst all the Realtors we were in contact with, Lisa was not overly aggressive in her approach and genuinely wanted to understand our needs and work with us to sell and purchase our new home.
Lisa took the time to sit down with us and get to know us as a family. She provided a thorough assessment and provided us with recommendations in staging to optimize the appeal of our home. Her research of our area and activity in our neighbourhood, gave us an edge in the showing and selling opportunities. She understood our budget and features that were essential in our new home, making our experience a positive one. With her extensive network of professionals in the industry, she was able to provide contacts from mortgage brokers, home inspectors and a newsletter keeping us informed of trends in real estate.
Lisa demonstrates sound judgment and professional demeanor to ensure that the level of service we received was unparalleled in the realty profession. She is always reachable and promptly responsive, with every question or concern. She is a credit to the realty profession and to Discover Real Estate. We would gladly do business again with Lisa and will continue to give her the highest recommendation to anyone considering a home purchase or sale.

Ongoing Service-Oriented Relationship
It is a pleasure to recommend my realtor, Lisa Merrett! I have worked with Lisa for many years as a buyer, and I have appreciated her focus on the client and her attention to detail. In particular, Lisa was able to provide a tremendous amount of market data and other local information that, being new to the area, I had requested. She seemed to have the patience of a saint in accommodating my numerous requests for additional information.
Buying the house was only the beginning of an ongoing service-oriented relationship with Lisa. Since then, Lisa has continued to make herself available to answer my questions, and she he has kept me up-to-date with real estate listing updates (per my request), detailed monthly reports about the real estate market, and other helpful tips.
A Happy Home Owner
Thank you for your exceptional support and insights to the purchase of my condo!
You helped to make the process a smooth one and went above and beyond with your time to clearly explain things to me and to be there to look out for my best interests genuinely.
Your expertise and enthusiasm for what you do is not to be under estimated!
I look forward to referring more friends and family to you as a result of the trust and professionalism you've shown to me always.
Knowledge Over The Condominium Market
As a first-time buyer, Lisa was a great reference as I entered the market for the first time. She took the time to understand what I was looking for and made herself available for questions at any time. After looking through multiple condo's, I did not feel rushed or pressured by any means at any time during the process. Her knowledge over the condominium market and condo rules and regulations made the process much easier than expected. I would highly recommend her for future real estate needs!
Recommend You With Pride
"Thank-you Lisa for making a stressful, big step easier for both of us. We enjoyed our days out shopping for our first home. You were informed before each viewing and whatever you did not know you quickly looked into it.
Your comfortable, understanding approach made us feel like we could ask you any questions and express our feelings about the entire process.
Thank you as well for following up with us in weeks following to ensure that everything was running smooth.

World of difference working with Lisa Merrett
Selling two condos in a weak economy is not an easy task. With Lisa's support and knowledge not only did we sell both our condos but we managed to do it with a little amount of stress. Lisa really listened to us and took in consideration of our unique situation and treated us like individuals. It sure makes a world of difference when you do business with someone who cares. If your wanting to sell your house we recommend Lisa ... we will be calling upon her services again in the future.

Business with Integrity
I am writing to thank you for your hard work and perseverance with regards to our recent real estate transactions.
As you know the sale of my home and subsequent new home purchase had been a very difficult and emotional decision, however you not only turned this into a manageable process but actually made the experience and exciting adventure for my daughter. This is something that she will carry with her for years to come and I cannot thank you enough for that.
Despite my challenging criteria for the selection of the new home, I found you to be an excellent listener, flexible, and very patient. Your ability to appreciate the various financial and emotional dynamics that a client experiences when changing their home goes beyond mere professionalism and demonstrates strong personal maturity and integrity.
I wish you great success in the future.

This letter is in regard to real estate work that Lisa provided for me during the 2005 summer months. I would like to say that during the sale process of my property Lisa provided quality service. I was please with her prompt communication and personable approach to her work. Lisa also paid close attention to detail and proved timely when timeliness was of importance.
Lisa, I thank-you again for making the property sale a smooth, easy, and friendly process.
All the best for future success
