We now sold our 2nd property with Richard and again happy with his flexibility and support in helping us out when we couldn't be in town. Made a big difference that he was so close. And he brought in creative ideas to have our log home exposed to a broader market. Enjoyed working with you.
January 2009: Trustworthy. Follows through. Concrete Advise. Punctual. Knowledgeable. Flexible. Good sense of humour. Understated. Competent. We bought our 2nd home in Canmore and Richard demonstrated all of these qualities from start to finish. Both my husband and I felt comfortable and confident in calling Richard to ask questions and brainstorm. His personal website updates are invaluable. Living in the valley he is able to call upon his network of colleagues to gather more information as needed. Thanks again Richard - we are loving relaxing by the fire after a day on the slopes.
Richard Greaves is the Best Bow valley realtor. He was very attentive to our wishes and worked very close with us to sell our home! We could tell throughout the process that he had our interest in his hands. Richard worked very hard to sell our home and had it sold in about 2.5 months!
We would highly recommend Richard if you are looking to sell your home or buy a home! He definitely knows the market!

"Richard has been our realtor since we first met him in 2011. Even though we were from Toronto And not 100% on what we wanted, he was willing to show us several places and help us understand the complicated market that is Canmore. We bought our first place with him 3 years later and have recently bought and sold again. We recommend Richard to all our friends and anyone reading this review."
"Since 2010 Richard Greaves has provided high quality professional service for our various real estate needs. He is reliable, knowledgeable, patient caring and delivers according to his very high standards.
Richard provides sound and honest advice and guidance. He is approachable and effortlessly builds a great working foundation with open and effective communication.
Easy to work with, swift obstacle navigator and hard working - Richard is our trusted Canmore Broker/Realtor and I recommend him time and time again"
"Richard is hands down the best realtor I have ever worked with. I have worked with many realtors over the years, now completing our 9th house sale. Richard has helped my wife and I purchase and sell 2 homes in Canmore in the last 4yrs. Relocating from Calgary to Canmore was made easy with Richards help. His knowledge of the Canmore and Bow Valley market is unmatched. Professional and personal, Richard is a hands on realtor that goes above and beyond what’s required. We knew we had the right realtor when arriving at our first new home in Canmore and discovered there was a delay with funds transfer at the banks end and we couldn’t take possession till it was sorted. It was late in the evening, we had a moving team in tow and on the payroll with two young kids crying and hungry. Richard standing there with us witnessing all of this took off and quickly returned with pizza and beverages for all us including the moving team! Hats off to that! That’s just one anecdote of many that Richard has done for us and others we know. Would I recommend Richard? ABSOLUTELY. I give Richard 6 stars!"
"I have no reservations in recommending Richard as a real estate professional. And he is a professional. Richard didn't lose his calm and thoughtful demeanour in what was a wild week of multiple offers. He treated my tenant without the utmost care and respect, so that she wasn't unduly disturbed by viewings. Richard is very knowledgeable about what is a very hot property market. But when there was a sticky point with one offer he didn't try to bluff his way through it (like I think many realtors would), but checked with his governing body before recommending a course of action. Thanks, Richard, for a great selling experience!"
"Richard has brokered multiple transactions (both buying and selling properties in Canmore) and has always been very professional in his approach. Richard is well versed in the Canmore and has helped us sell two properties in timely fashion. He is easily accessible and prompt. I will be using Richard for any future real estate transactions in Canmore."
"I have know Richard for a number of years. He has always been keen to share his knowledge of the the Real Estate Industry and certainly understands the industry dynamics. Now that I have actually done business with Richard, he was our selling agent, I can verify that he was professional, was always very responsive to our calls he really took the time to understand our needs which my wife and I appreciated, he was detailed to make sure nothing fell through the cracks. Richard was always really easy to deal with. I found him to be a very good negotiator. I would highly recommend Richard and his company, Remax Alpine Realty. I would not hesitate to choose him again"
"Biker. Realtor. Friend.
Listing and Buying Realtor.
Richard made both the sale and the purchase as simplified as possible. Both our sale and our purchase had RPR issues but Richard's calm, collected, and organized demeanour made us feel at ease, even when dealing with large sums of money.
He went above and beyond expectations on a number of occasions; from dropping off and allowing us to use the company trailer for an extended period of time to helping us navigate the legal side of a large purchase, we really couldn't have done it without him.
The biggest bonus was all the easy communication between Richard and my husband, meaning that I didn't have to field all the questions that I didn't know anything about!
I would absolutely, without hesitation, recommend Richard for your next home purchase or sale"
"We first contacted Richard about three years ago to gain some insight into the potential sale of our condo in Canmore. He willingly came over to meet us, walk through our condo and discuss the market, despite the fact he knew we probably wouldn’t be ready to pull the trigger for another year or so. That year turned into two more due to Covid (we’re US citizens so couldn’t get into Canada) so when we finally got back to Canmore, we were ready. I can’t say enough good things about working with Richard. He has a pleasant, calming demeanor which, when coupled with his deep knowledge of the market, proves invaluable. He listens, which is always important to any client, and offers practical solutions to concerns. He is responsive and helpful in that he handled a couple of repairs that had to be done after we returned to the States, and he provided excellent referrals for a closing attorney and accountant. In short, he made our sale and closing a breeze for us. We can’t recommend Richard enough and are sure, whether buying or selling, you will be in good hands"
"We had a great experience working with Richard on the recent purchase of a condo in Canmore. He assessed our needs quickly and provided appropriate options for us to view. He is really knowledgeable about the developments in the area and continues to provide his experience and local knowledge to help us settle into our new home"
"Richard did an amazing job at getting my place listed fast and sold.
He looked after all the details and made the whole experience easy. I’d highly recommend Richard to sell or buy a new home"
"Richard did a fantastic job for us navigating the difficult Canmore market. He worked with us for over eight months, never giving up, and always stayed positive in our search. He kept us informed of market conditions and provided great guidance on our buying decision. We highly recommend Richard to anyone considering a home in Canmore"
"Richard is the consummate professional. He came highly recommended to us when it was time to sell our home, and he did not disappoint. At our first meeting, I was impressed by his friendly demeanour, his knowledge, and his quiet confidence. As we moved along our journey, he demonstrated the ability to negotiate the best possible terms of our sale, while listening patiently and giving prompt and pragmatic advice along the way, whenever we had a question or concern. Richard was always available by text and phone and returned calls promptly if he wasn’t readily available. What really set Richard apart was his professionalism, kind consideration of his clients, and his clear level of knowledge of the area, the market, and the trends. His integrity is unparalleled, and I would highly recommend Richard for buying or selling a home. Thanks Richard!"
"Richard is an excellent choice for helping you navigate your real estate experience in the Bow Valley. He's been our agent for decades and we highly recommend him."
"Amazing service. Would recommend and work with Richard again. I was out of the province of Alberta during the whole sale process and Richard was incredibly involved and helpful. I my first time selling a property, so patiently explained every step and basically took care of everything! He even referred us to a lawyer to be able to sign the papers at distance. Thank you Richard!"
"Richard made us not only feel welcome in Canmore, he also helped us find a home. He understood our needs as a family and was very patient with the process of buying in a popular marketplace. If we had to use Richard again we would and, when we have friends and family ready to make the move to Canmore, we will recommend Richard."
"Right at the beginning of all the uncertainty brought on by Covid-19, Richard found us the condo that we had been looking for. We were most impressed by Richard's local knowledge and his ability to put us in touch with excellent people including inspectors, lawyers and city planners. Thank you Richard for all that you have done for us. We love our new place"
"We used Richard for our recent purchase. Richard's in-depth knowledge of local market conditions meant we were able to get an offer accepted on a South Canmore Duplex that we really thought was out of our price range. Its a stunning property that back onto Policeman's Creek but also 3 mins from center of town - you just don't get that in Canmore !
Richard was friendly and professional throughout and really helped us in navigating through and out of the first place we were keen on and onwards onto the prefect property for us - thanks Richard will recommend you to others for sure."
"Richard was extremely responsive to any questions we had. He was able to share his perspective as a longtime resident and reputable realtor in the Canmore area. Shared some excellent resources for us to consider in our purchase. Highly recommend Richard!"
"I've worked with Richard on about half a dozen real estate transactions over recent years. He is a consummate professional -- poised, patient and absolutely persistent. He will not relent until he has found you your property or sold your current one. What sets him apart as a realtor is not only his considerable sales, search and leadership abilities but his impressive capacity to peacefully and confidently guide his sometimes stressed clients through anxious moments. You can count on him to keep his head even if you are losing yours. In other words, he excels at the fine art of client management. Personally, he is a man of great integrity, and at the same time he is gentle, thoughtful and kind. He comes with my highest recommendation."
"Richard was always there to answer every one of our many questions and offer professional advice. He made the process as seamless as possible. Thank you Richard."
"All-star Richard Greaves Broker / Owner of REMAX Alpine Realty. Extremely knowledgeable in all areas of real estate. Well versed when it comes to answering all your many questions, has up-to-date market information and stats. All round a great Realtor. We have now bought and sold two houses using Richard, he has always gone above and beyond taking the guess work and stress work out of buying and selling. Thanks Rich!"
"Richard was amazingly helpful in all aspects of purchasing our property. He gave us excellent advice regarding market valuations and bidding advice. I would not hesitate to recommend him or use him again in the future."
"Thank you Richard for selling my home so quickly! I felt very secure selling my home with Richard Greaves. He exhibits incredible professionalism and knowledge in the industry of selling and buying real estate. He is a genuine person whom you can turn to with any question or concern you may have about the process. Richard answers you promptly always providing the details you are looking for. If I were to go into the market again I would have 100% trust in using Richard as my realtor."
"We have worked with Richard on three occasions now and have been very happy each time. He was very patient and helpful as we bought our first place in Canmore. Years later he helped us sell it very quickly, even though the market was slow. Then he was equally helpful when we bought our dream home in Canmore. We don't plan on selling soon, but when we do, we'll use Richard again. Highly recommended."
"Richard was fantastic help to us selling our house in Canmore recently. He helped us set a good price for a speedy sale, and his local trades contacts were very useful in tackling some repairs that the property needed. He also kept us up to date throughout the selling process. A great choice for a Canmore realtor!"
"I cannot recommend Richard highly enough. He was always able to answer our questions & take the time to deal with any concerns we had (because selling a house is stressful!). We have worked with him twice now and if we were to ever come back to the Bow Valley Richard is the realtor we would call."
"Professional, efficient and great customer service - would not hesitate to recommend Richard for both buying and selling."
"Richard is my “Go To” realestate agent because/ He is Honest and I trust his opinions in a market that requires real experience! I highly recommend Him! "
"The best realtor in town by far! Starting to lose count of the number of sales and purchases we have made through Richard at Remax, and it's always been a trouble and stress free experience. I highly recommend Richard and his team to anyone looking to buy or sell in the Bow Valley."
"Richard helped me selling my condo and buying my townhouse in Canmore. His services are top notch. Patient, understanding, he explained to me all the process and waited until I had the right offer on my condo - just then I was able to put an offer for the townhouse. I am very happy with my new place and the whole process was great - if you take into the account that this is one of the biggest purchases you will make in life, Richard took the stress out of it and made sure it was smooth on both ends. I strongly recommend Richard's services!"
