"If you are thinking of buying or selling in Canmore you need to work with Thomas. His market knowledge, professionalism, attention to detail, and personal interest in making sure we purchased the right vacation property for us was exceptional.
We live out of Province and were interested in purchasing a condo in Canmore. We contacted Thomas and he arranged for a tour of the various types of condo units available and explained all the different zoning restrictions on each type. What we liked was that he listened to what we indicated our priorities were and was able to match us up with the types of units that fit our needs.
Thomas remained patient with us as we took several months to sort through all the properties. We felt like he guided us through the process with no pressure and allowed us to move at our pace, leading us to finally purchase a condo that exceeded our expectations.
Finally, what impressed us most is that Thomas' assistance didn't end on the closing date. He continued to check in and make sure we were completely satisfied with our purchase.
We definitely recommend Thomas!"
"We were ready to sell in the summer of 2017 and we selected Thomas based on his experience in the area of Canmore where we owned our property. He was very helpful, knowledgeable and organized as we worked through the process to list and sell. As we don’t reside in Canmore, we needed someone who we thought that we could trust to help us via long-distance. Thomas did a great job and we had a successful sale. We would definitely recommend Thomas to anyone in Canmore."
Brenda & Andy
"We sold a commercial building in oct. 2017 and Thomas Krause from Remax Alpine Realty Canmore was very helpful and professional.
With his help, we were able to sell our property within 4 Month and with a respectable result. I would recommend Thomas as a realtor and he comes with a friendly, knowledgeable and committing personality.
I will stay in touch with him in the future."
"The proof is in the pudding: Thomas quickly found us the house we were looking for. He did this through understanding our search criteria, making efficient use of our limited time and supporting us each and every step of the way during the purchase. He's thorough and professional. I highly recommend Thomas."
Ed and Yuka
"We are so glad that our friend introduced Thomas to us as our Canmore condo buying realtor. At first we did not know anything about the whole process. Thomas very patiently and professionally introduced all the processes to us. He helped us a lot on the offer, unit checking, financials, contacting the management company, coordinating with the sellers, providing documents to our lawyer, etc. We will definitely use Thomas as our future realtor if we need. Also I would really recommend Thomas to my friends if they need a realtor. Thank you again Thomas!"
"Thomas did very good job for our hotel condo for us."
"We would highly recommend Thomas Krause as realtor in Canmore and would not hesitate to use him again in the future. Thomas is very knowledgeable and helpful which was very much appreciated by us as first time homebuyers. He was very accommodating in working with difficult schedules and was always available for any questions we had. We are very satisfied with the entire experience. Thank you Thomas!"
Franziska and David
"We started out as casual lookers for a suitable condo in Canmore having been part of the hotel-condo scene for many years. Our search was spread over 8 months. We couldn't have found a better person than Thomas to work with. He was exceptionally patient and astute in helping us view several properties that fell within our general preferences and price interests. We are extremely pleased with his professionalism and the careful guidance he provided in helping to find the perfect fit for us. Thank you Thomas. We highly recommend your services to others."
Richard and Carol
"We had the great fortune to have Thomas as our agent. His experience and knowledge of the Canmore area are beyond compare. His friendly easy going manner will put you at ease. When we were looking for a retirement home in Canmore, he listened to what we wanted. The home we purchased had another offer and we were seconded. Thomas remained in contact with the other agent and when the other deal fell thru we were able to make the deal. On the day we took possession, we noticed the washer and small fridge did not work. Thomas sent a repairman who was only able to fix the washer. The fridge was a whole different matter. Thomas took it upon himself to remedy the situation after the sellers did not offer to have it fixed. It took three months, Thomas brought it to Calgary had it fixed and returned it on his own. Most agents will stop working for you after the deal is closed, not Thomas. As our lawyer stated, Thomas is like that. He looks out for his clients. It's a good feeling when other professionals approve of your agents. Thomas is an absolute professional and I would highly recommend him to anyone."
Shannon & Chris
"My wife and I would like to commend Mr. Thomas Krause who recently acted as our agent in selling our home in Canmore when we moved to Victoria BC. Personable, thorough, conscientious and friendly throughout the process, he inspired our confidence and made every step a stress-free experience. Firstly he was clear and thorough in researching a reasonable listing price for us. Next, he worked diligently in publicizing and marketing the property, impressively utilizing all forms of communication media. He even went the extra mile by arranging trades to help fix some deficiencies in our property when we were already in Victoria prior to the sale being completed. We were kept informed in a timely fashion every step of the way, be it documentation, negotiations or legal work. We can only join in the many voices who have sung the praises of "CanmoreThomas". If you want results with a good experience to boot, he is the man to go to."
"Thomas recently assisted me in finding my perfect home in Canmore - not an easy task as I was living on Vancouver island, but on an extended visit in Toronto with family. Thomas initially set up a day of visiting a number of different properties to give me a clear understanding of what my options would be at a time of very low inventory. It was clear that I had preconceived ideas and Thomas was most professional, patient & respectful in allowing me the time & space to adjust my expectations and to clarify my priorities. We stayed in touch. Thomas keeping me updated as listings became available with no pressure to act. Two months after our initial tour, an excellent property in the perfect location, at the right price point became available and Thomas went into action, making me aware of the pros & cons, arranging showings for both my daughter & son in law who live in Calgary, sending videos, property details, condo docs and all the assorted details that I was unaware of.
We then made an offer & Thomas guided the negotiating process in a most professional and calm manner, resulting in me seamlessly becoming the proud owner of a condo that I love in Canmore. Thomas' passion for Canmore is proudly worn on his sleeve and he is completely invested in assisting clients find the home of their dreams. His knowledge of the town, the market and the community is most impressive and Thomas consistently presents absolutely professional standards and integrity, creating a trusting relationship between client & realtor. I would not hesitate in recommending Thomas to anyone looking to make the beautiful town of Canmore their home!"
"Thomas is very professional and knowledgable about the real estate market in Canmore. Our real estate transaction went very smooth. I would certainly work with him again in the future to purchase property in Canmore."

Will work with Thomas for all my future purchases in Canmore."
"My husband and I recently listed and sold our Canmore townhouse with Thomas and he did a fantastic job. Always professional and courteous, Thomas provided support and knowledge through the listing and sale process.

My husband and I would hightly recommend Thomas. He is honest and efficiently responds to emails, calls or texts. He is a great realtor and we would be happy to contact him again to purchase our next home.

Simon and Cathy
"Thomas Krause helped my wife and I purchase our first investment/rental property in Canmore. The first thing we noticed and liked about Thomas was how friendly and calm he was. From the moment we met with him, he took the time to get to know us, understand our objectives and provide us with the unbiased market information we needed to assess our investment. He was very patient working with us over 5 months as we searched for the ideal property. Being that we lived out of town (Calgary), Thomas was able to schedule showings for us with relatively little lead time to accommodate our busy schedules. His communication was very clear, concise, and he was always available to answer any questions we had via phone, text or email and got back to us very quickly. When we decided to submit an offer to purchase, we felt Thomas looked out for our best interest and was an effective negotiator. Thomas did not pressure us at any point during the negotiation process and was always reassuring. When a problem was identified with the in-slab heating during the final walk-through a few hours before possession, Thomas was quick to react and contact the owner of a local plumbing company to come in on short notice and assess the issue. Thomas has ample contacts in the local community and has provided us with many resources when we were seeking other local trades. Having worked with 3 other real estate agents in the past, my experience working with Thomas Krause has by far been the best. I would work with Thomas again in the future and definitely recommend him for people seeking a professional, honest, trustworthy, and knowledgeable REALTOR in Canmore. He will make your purchase process as stress-free as possible!"
Robert and Erijka

It took way longer to find exactly what I was looking for and throughout the process you were very professional as well as extremely patient and you always had a smile. This was the first time I purchased a condo and you were so helpful with anything I had not encountered before as well as going above and beyond by getting rid of the garage the seller left behind. I would be happy to recommend you and hope to work with you in the future. Thank you."
"My husband and I recently purchased a home with the help of Thomas Krause. He was able to quickly ascertain our negotiating style and work proficiently within our price and timing guidelines. He was very thorough and always responded to our questions and concerns promptly. As our closing day approached he took extra care to ensure that the few conditions and requests we had made were completed....even replacing the broken glass in an outdoor fixture himself! He was very professional, accommodating and knowledgeable. It was a very smooth transaction and I would be pleased to recommend Thomas."
"Only good things to say about this REALTOR, who was with us every step of the way and beyond. Thank you Thomas for your eye for detail, consistently professional and courteous service, and willingness to work creatively to overcome a few unforeseen bumps. You were always available and a wonderful guide throughout this process. You truly were our "guy" and go-to from beginnig to end. Highly recommended."
"We recently sold our Canmore condo after over twenty years of memories. As part of preparing to list our place we spoke with several local Realtors. Thomas was the first person we spoke with and he was well prepared. He presented a sound marketing strategy.
His market evaluation of our place was carefully thought out and considered a number of factors to arrive at the final numbers. Thomas displayed quiet confidence in his ability to attract a buyer.
We were part of a three way ownership group. Thomas employed a computer based program "docusign" which allowed all owners to legally sign offers, conditional sales, and other documents in a very short time period. This program eliminated the use of faxes, signing and scanning or courier charges for transporting original documents.
From the first meeting with Thomas through to the final sale, he acted professionally and instilled confidence in us that the sale of our condo was more than just a commission.
We were extremely satisfied with Thomas and his company. We would recommend anyone considering selling or buying in Canmore area to meet and speak with Thomas. You won't be disappointed."
Dan and Frances

"Thomas Krause was the consummate professional! When my wife and I were looking for a home in Canmore, we were worried that it would be very time consuming. It was our first experience looking for a home in an area different from where we lived (Calgary), and weren't sure what to expect. Right from the beginning, Thomas was efficient and "to the point". His feedback was welcome, his advice was excellent, and his correspondence, via text email or phone call, was always very quick. As you can imagine, this helped make the whole experience very enjoyable. From the day we looked at properties to the day we took possession (28 days), the whole process was so smooth. I would recommend Thomas to anyone looking for a home in Canmore. He knows the industry, he knows the steps needed, and his communication is excellent. What more can you ask? When trusting someone with such an important purchase, it is important to find the right fit. He was perfect for us."
