April DeJong + Mike Baboushkin

April and Mike helped us to market and sell our parents' condo. They had to navigate working with three powers of attorney – no simple task! April and Mike went above and beyond to ensure the condo showed beautifully and was visible on all forms of social media. The condo sold much more quickly than we anticipated and we were very satisfied with the selling prices. April and Mike made a difficult process easy. Our experience was seamless and they were a pleasure to work with.

Mike Baboushkin

Relocating to Calgary and leaving some big stressors behind, I needed to find a place that would be a new start and a place to call home. Having known Michael, with his sense of care and selflessness, it was an easy call to make. Michael listened, helped me form a plan and even helped me find an interim place to live while I sorted out all that I needed to do.

Michael kept in touch with me regularly over several months always checking on my well-being first. When I was able to finally buy a place he jumped in, only showing me what was affordable and what fit for my lifestyle. At the time of purchase he represented me well, navigating the art of the deal without pressure or insane conditions.

Michael’s experience, expertise and his hours of behind the scenes work supported me in many ways before and after the purchase of my home. Connected to fair and trustworthy people in finance, law and design, Michael ensured I got what I needed. 
I am now living in a beautiful home that is an extension of all I love. It’s flooded with light and joy, good friends and family.  It is my little sanctuary I call home. 

If you want someone who you can trust, who will work hard for you and who will keep all your interests at heart, call Michael Baboushkin.

Mike Baboushkin + April DeJong

I used Baboushkin DeJong to sell my home in Glamorgan in Autumn 2019. I was worried that it would take a long time to sell, but they coached me through some improvements I could make to increase the value, and we worked together to find the right price. I was able to sell in a very difficult market in about a month, and I was very happy with how smooth the process was. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

Mike is a keen and savvy agent whom we have had the pleasure of working with for numerous real estate transactions.  He has to-the-minute knowledge of the marketplace, a knack for understanding a client's needs, an ability to be upfront and honest under any circumstance, and a natural eye for staging and design.  We can't say enough great things about Mike - he gets the job done, and fast!, every time.

April's mastered the art of marketing in a real estate world that relies heavily on phones and internet.  If you're looking for an agent with a finger on the pulse of publications and social media, who will make your home look spectacular and memorable to buyers every step of the way, April is your number one choice.  She's efficient, responsive, quick witted, and current.  We were thrilled with all of her hard work for our recent sale.

Mike and April - what a team!  We worked with them through the recent sale of our home and couldn't have asked for more.  This hard-working duo was always available to answer questions, to host open houses, and to assist in negotiations around the multiple offers to purchase we received.  We felt supported and cared for throughout the process of listing and sale, and would highly recommend Mike and April to anyone looking to quickly and effortlessly sell their home.

April and Mike made it so easy for us to purchase a home here in Calgary, all the way from the other side of Canada in the Maritimes. And the White Hat Ceremony they arranged upon our arrival to YYC was absolutely perfect. We love our new home here! I appreciated all the referrals they gave (home inspector, condo document review business, tradespeople) as I was not familiar with reputable companies in the local area. Thank you so much for everything!

We recently purchased a home with the assistance of Mike Baboushkin and April DeJong. Mike was very knowledgeable and attentive to our needs, he provided us with valuable information on a home inspector and lawyer to assist us with this purchase that helped make buying a house a lot easier. The home inspector identified a few issues that need addressing and Mike worked with the seller and us to ensure that our concerns were addressed prior to closing. He took the initiative to obtain quotes for the required work and helped us come to a satisfactory compromise with the seller to address our concerns, and ensure that the purchase proceeded so  that there was no need for a hold backs or complicated amendments to our purchase agreements. Mike’s knowledge and connections helped ensure a smooth purchase transaction and saved us unnecessary time and expense on finding a lawyer to assist us with our purchase. Mike and April also connected us with the seller before closing as the seller was interested to  know if we wanted to  purchase some household items that he figured he no longer required after moving out of the house.

Mike Baboushkin

We met Mike a couple of years ago, at an open house. Right away, we liked Mike's outgoing personality, when we started talking to him it was very evident he was familiar with the area we were considering (Kensington/Hillhurst/Parkdale).

Earlier this year, we decided it was time to be serious about finding a new home. Since we were still looking in the same area as the year before. we knew exactly who to talk to. Mike made us feel at ease from the start. We could ask any questions at any time. Mike explained the whole process from beginning to end, we listed our home with him and started house hunting.

Selling our home.- Mike was always aware of the competition, advice accordingly, and his advice was always spot on. Mike also has a vast network of contacts (mortgage, home inspectors, appliance vendors, etc.), so whatever you need, he knows someone who can help you. Buying our home.- Mike expertise in design was evident. Each time we walked into a home, he would point out design features; does the house have a flow; are the kitchen coverts too high, etc., Things that would help us picture how day-to-day life would be in that home. These details are not on the paper listing. 

After a thorough search, we found our home, in the area we wanted and on budget. Whether you are looking to sell or to buy I would happily recommend Mike as your realtor.

April DeJong

April went above and beyond. She sold my house within 21 days of listing which was way sooner than I would have ever imagined. You can see her passion with what she does. She was always available to answer questions and ensured that everything went as smoothly as possible.  She’s one of the only realtors that I felt was truly honest and told me what I needed to hear, not what I wanted to hear.
