What Clients Are Saying


Donna Rooney and her team have helped us multiple times over the last 8 years and we have always been tremendously happy with the efficiency and professionalism of her team. Most recently they helped us with the purchase of a new home, which was very exciting for our family. However, more importantly they helped us with the sale of our previous home. After the the 2013 flood, out lives went into a temporary state of flux while we tried to sort out insurance, a renovation, and where we were going to live while our home was inhabitable. We had made the decision to move to a new home but were uncertain about the value we would attract for our current home and how the listing would play out. As we approached completion of the renovation and got ready to list, Donna came to us with a clear plan of exactly what she thought we should do. Our house was one of, if not the first to go on the market post flood. We took Donna’s advice, listed our house and we had an offer in 48 hours. Ultimately, the house sold for a mere 1% off list. Her experience and knowledge of the market showed itself in spades and I would recommend Donna and her team to anyone looking for an agent to help with their real estate needs. Wade + Rebecca Morley

"We have been clients of Rooney, Cronin + Valentine since 1993. We started out with a $20,000 down payment on our first home. Fifteen years, and 6 houses later, we sold our last property for $1 million! This team knows the market well. All our houses have sold within a 3 month window, and most within 1 week. We invariably attain our asking price (or within a 5% variance). Buying is just as smooth a process; our offer and conditions are accepted with minimal ? and always pleasant ? negotiation. This team is experienced, knowledgeable, hard-working and conscienscious. They act with integrity and honesty. They are, simply put, one of the best in their field. We recommend them without hesitation."

"Rooney, Cronin + Valentine represented us on both the buy and sell side of our transactions.

We were very impressed with their entire team. They were strategic with the sale of our home, professional, showed a strong knowledge of the market and a high level of integrity.

Their team approach enabled us to receive timely information throughout the entire process. They worked hard to get us the best price for our home and to find a new home that was a good fit.

We highly recommend the services of Rooney, Cronin + Valentine."
Susan and Maurice Walch

"We had total confidence that Sue Anne Valentine had an expert understanding of correct pricing on both the buy and sell side. Her professionalism in handling all the different situations that we encountered, helped make it a stress free experience."
Patti and Bob McKendrick

"Maureen and I would like to thank you for your assistance in the sale of our house. To sell it in one day at full price was nothing short of amazing and naturally we were delighted. It enabled us to proceed comfortably in the purchase of our new home knowing we had a firm sale.

Best wishes to you and Gary"
Brian & Maureen Stanley

"A fortuitous referral from a family member led me to Donna and Gary. Their professionalism is evident in the hugely successful practice they run, but of greater importance to me is their kindness, their combined sense of humour and their ability to determine quickly what an individual client needs and wants. They and their wonderful staff are exceptional in their field."
Brigid Stewart

"Sue Anne, as mentioned a few days ago, we are extremely happy with the purchase of our new home and the quick sale of our old one.

When purchasing our home, we really appreciated your knowledge of the Calgary market, the research that you and your associates did to provide us advise on a reasonable offer and the follow through to close the deal in our favour. The process was smooth and we always felt looked after.

When selling our home, we could not have asked for a better result. Again not only did we benefit from your associate's input but also your advise on staging and listing price got us the very best price possible within 3 days of listing. We were very impressed by multiple offers being placed on our home and by the professionalism that you and your team exhibited in dealing with the conditions and providing the best advise for an easy decision.

We always felt looked after and "safe" on our decisions based on your advise. We would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone looking for a good experience in buying or selling, we would also call you again promptly if we
needed Real Estate help.

Thanks Sue Anne, we appreciate your efforts and responsiveness to our needs."

"Gary and Donna represented me for at least 18 months before making any commissions from me. During that time they showed me property, met architects and builders with me, and attended site viewings. They answered dozens of emails and phone calls, promptly and helpfully every time.

When I first mentioned selling the property I presently owned, they bought me an offer at the price I suggested within a day. I decided I wasn’t sure about selling. No problem. Later, I followed their advice about timing and pricing, put my property on the market, and received a full price offer. I was on vacation with poor communications and only partially in the loop of what was happening. I would have been happy to accept that offer but they told me that they had another potential interested party. Over 24 hours they negotiated on my behalf with buyers represented by other realtors resulting in a very substantial price increase for me, on which they earned only modest split commissions.

There is a reason that Donna and Gary are number one. They are smart, informed, on the ball, ethical, and their loyalty is to their client. I recommend them very highly."
Simon Lord

"In a turbulent time of indecision and devastation to our home due to flooding, the Rooney Cronin + Valentine team were invaluable to our family. As a resource for a market evaluation, options to lease and options to purchase both Donna and SueAnne were amazing. Professional, compassionate and knowledgeable about our situation, they offered sound advise and support. I would recommend their services without hesitation."
Cori McNicol

"Our experience with Donna Rooney and her organization was overwhelmingly positive. Previous efforts to sell our home had been going nowhere, and then we were hit by the recent floods. When we reached out to Donna however, things started to improve right away. She understood how the house needed to be marketed in these trying circumstances and we had an offer within 6 days.

Her staff were very helpful and professional and made the whole process even easier.

We wholeheartedly recommend Donna and her team."
Ann and Craig Reardon

"When first deciding to sell my Sunnyside condo I was worried I might not be able to find an agent that would work hard to sell my place. This was my first time selling and I had heard lots of stories about absentee-agents in the busy Calgary market. Donna and her team made an outstanding impression. What a hardworking, attentive group of professionals.

From the first meeting where Donna arrived with quality market info all the way to arrangements for keys, the process was smooth and fast! I sold within 2% of asking price and within 48h of listing.

I recommend Rooney Cronin + Valentine without reservation for their professionalism, attentiveness, and knowledge of the market."

"It is a great pleasure to do business with your team. I am sure that you all probably know already that your team's reputation did not result only from the number of sales but especially from that extra ten miles of courteous attention, pertinent advice and efficiency that you all provide to your clients. This is our first relocation experience and only our second real estate buying experience, and we consider ourselves very lucky to have chosen your team. Our relocation process has been so far seamless and stress-free as much as it can be."
Christine Pham and Miles Reid

"Rooney Cronin + Valentine were a complete pleasure to work with. They are an amazing team of 4 real estate agents backed up by a very professional staff of assistants. The entire team worked very hard with each other and myself to sell my home in a very timely, and professional basis. They are all awesome to deal with."
Eldon Guay

"We recently had the opportunity to work with Donna, Gary and their experienced real estate team, both as purchasers and sellers. Without exception, the process was a pleasure from start to finish. At all times we felt that we were fully informed regarding the property and procedural details. We felt no pressure at any time and appreciated the availability of the Rooney Cronin + Valentine team to accommodate even our most awkward requests. We would enthusiastically recommend them to anyone looking to buy or sell a home with an advantage over the competition."
Steve and Sue Trimble

We were very impressed with Donna's comprehensive knowledge of Calgary and its varied neighborhoods. Her input was extremely beneficial; she helped us focus on a location, size, and cost of a property that would best serve our needs. Her easygoing demeanor made us immediately comfortable
