I have known John Kalaja for a number of years and have worked with him in a variety of situations – he sold the last two houses of mine, he has managed several of my investment properties including finding tenants and taking care of issues as they arose, and has provided excellent general advice on a number of real estate issues over that time.

At all times during the sales process, we were impressed by John's professionalism, organizational skills and knowledge of the current market. His friendly demeanour always put us at ease, instilled confidence and alleviated the stresses of the sale process. We are extremely grateful to him for helping us achieve and excellent result for the sale of our property. Con & Elene - 10 Sussex Street, West End
In 2005 I bought a unit in Ryan Street West End, through John. I was introduced to him via a friend and found him to be quite professional. He responded to calls promptly, freely gave of his experience in his advice to me, and always provided respectful service. And I loved living in my Ryan Street unit; it turned out to be a great decision. So, when it came to selling my unit in 2010 and buying a house in Rogers Street in 2011, I of course went back to John for both. While John is highly experienced in real estate and a local in West End, he is not pushy, so I heartily recommend him to you. Dr. Vikki - 119 Ryan Street, West End
