We recently purchased a new house from Montorio homes and needed to sell our existing house in a relatively short time frame.  We then contacted Sid Yar since he had a reputation of achieving results in a professional and efficient manner and also came highly recommended by a very reputable builder.  Sid is very engaging and passionate about his work and this shows in his research about comparative market analysis and in his engagement in building an effective working relationship with his clients.  He was always available to answer any questions we had.  In addition, we ended up selling our house quickly (even though we had multiple showings with different realtors) and Sid was able to close the deal fairly quickly by drawing from his exceptional sales techniques and vast amount of real estate experience.  We received the type of customer care that we were quite happy with.  We highly recommend Sid over at ReMax for your real estate needs and trust that you are in good hands.

Re: SID YAR – “The Best Move You’ll Ever Make”

It is extremely rare today to find a realtor, that you would also like to call your friend.  Miracles do happen, and we are pleased to call “Sid Yar” not only our realtor of choice....but more importantly our friend.  From the start of the selling process to the final closing, Sid professionally, meticulously guided us through the steps involved, not just meeting but exceeding all of our expectations.  His support team (photography, legal) not surprisingly are some of the best in the business, enhancing his efforts, as winners do want to work with winners.

Sid has a rare talent to listen to his clients, really listen, understand their wants and expectations, and then carefully plan a buying or selling strategy with his clients to accomplish those goals.  He supports you with regular updates plus by being available 24/7 for any questions that may arise.  He will thankfully under promise...but over deliver’.

It is said some things are best left to professionals, buying or selling a home is the single largest transaction many of us will do in their lifetimes, and with Sid by your side you can be sure you are in trustworthy, competent, professional hands, who truly has your interests at heart....today,  tomorrow, forever.....

Hello Sid,

I would like to thank you so much for all the hard work and effort you've put forth in helping me find my first home. Being a first time home buyer, I found the whole task rather daunting, but you were there with me every step of the way to answer every question I had and point out other's which I had no idea I should've had. Your knowledge base was very extensive when it came to what to look for when buying a condo. Such as layout design, potential and possibilities for future upgrades as well as what to look for when it came to location. The references as well for inspection and condo documents were well received. The level of professionalism and confidence you brought to my first time experience was exactly what I needed to put me at ease knowing you were with me to guide me along what could have been a terrible experience.

Lastly, again thank you so much for being my agent. I would definitely recommend you to any of my friends and peers looking to buy or sell their home. As well should I find myself in need of another agent, rest assured you will hear from me.

Hi Sid, 
Here is our testimonial for you...

We have a very bad experience dealing with realtors in the past. We thought selling our house will be a bit challenge if we will ask for realtors help.  But, when we meet Sid, our bad experiences  has been covered up with his sincerity, respect and a promise until the end that we are in good hands and that we’re going to be well taken care of. From our very first meeting, while properties on the market until properties been sold, he never stops extending his care, support and help. He considered us part of his family.  He even offer extended help if we need to look for new job and/or need realtor to help us out finding our new home into the new city.


It was a challenge to sell our house especially when one of us is working far, but with Sid, he never let us feel that way and he makes sure both of us are contacted via emails, text messages and telephone calls.  If we have questions he will reply right away even in the middle of the night.  He is really on call 24/7, and we thank him for that.


Sid is the most professional, kindest, knowledgeable, and trustworthy realtor we’ve ever met. He put so much time and effort into selling our home and his on call 24/7.  He’s above and beyond.


He was able to correct any issue that arose in selling the property and make sure everything’s well taken care of for both parties involved.


Sid, We would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for going far and beyond our expectations not just as our realtor but making us feel part of your family, we will highly recommend you to all of our friends and family.


You are definitely right it was “THE BEST MOVE YOU’LL EVER MAKE”!!!


Good luck and GOD BLESS you and your family. We wish you more success and may you able to continue helping clients like us.

Dear Sid!

Via this email, my husband and I we would like to thank you for your endless efforts, trying to accommodate our needs as first buyers, and finding us the perfect house in the great neighborhood.

Although our relation became so spontaneously, and it was just a phone call, that we occasionally found in one of your posters, driving buy, we can both now say loudly that we did make a perfect real estate friend, to our family.

Thank for finding us our dream house, you had gifted us a home, where we feel welcome and easily breathe every time we walk in. The most sincere and warm regards from all of us!

From:  Jamie and Diane Barone

Dear Sid:

Jamie and I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your exceptional service during the recent selling of our home.  As you know, our family moves quite a lot.  We have bought and sold 4 homes during the past eight years, so we know exactly what we are looking for in a Real Estate Agent.

During the selling of our most recent property, we confidently asked you to represent us.  You did not disappoint!  From our very first meeting with you, you were highly professional and enthusiastic.  You were also extremely prepared.  For example: you put together a comprehensive booklet (Comparative Market Analysis) for us, which outlined the details and comparable properties.  We found that to be very useful.

You sold our home quickly and for 98% of the asking price.  What more could we ask for? Your knowledge of the current local market and your honest selling approach are second to none!  We would, without a doubt, refer you to anyone looking for an outstanding Real Estate Agent.

From Brian & Shirley Johnston      

Hi Sid

Here are our good words about you.

When we decided to sell our condo apartment we contacted several realtors to get a market analysis done.  Sid really impressed us with the thoroughness and detail of his evaluation of our property.  His marketing strategy and professional advice were outstanding. Due to his hard work and efforts we had a number of showings, resulting in the sale of our condo at full asking price.  This was truly remarkable considering the real estate climate at the time.

We had a very enjoyable experience working with Sid and we consider him a realtor second to none. We will definitely recommend him to our family and friends.

Thank you Sid!

We have trusted the dedication and professionalism of Sid Yar for the past 3 years and will continue to do so.  His multi-faceted approach to real estate and extensive construction background are highly desirable whether buying or selling. 

My wife and I first met Sid 3 years ago when relocating to the Edmonton area.  We immediately found Sid to be very knowledgeable, welcoming, and were very impressed how attentive he was to our needs as a growing family.  Sid was honest, persistent and we were very happy to have him on our side when it came time to negotiating.  Sid Yar was our first and only choice to list our home when it came time to sell.  Yet again, he did not let us down by selling our home in a timely manner and at a fair price.  His advice has always been honest and well thought out.  We truly felt well looked after in both buying and selling.  I highly recommend Sid Yar for all your real estate needs.  He will provide honesty, integrity, and will dedicate himself to achieving your real estate goals.

From John & Shannon van Soest

We would like to offer a few thoughts about Sid Yar, our realtor.

Sid recently, and very successfully, handled both sides of a real estate deal to put us into the house of our dreams and to sell our previous house in what you might call record time. From the moment we met Sid, we were treated with respect, enthusiasm and professionalism. Sid was very candid with us, educated us about anything he thought we might need to know, and maintained extensive communications with us via telephone calls and email messages.

Sid thoroughly explained our options both in proposing an offer on our dream house as well as in the sale of our existing property. In providing us with these options and offering us his opinion about which route might be most successful, we opted to trust his experience in realty and were gratefully rewarded with a very smooth transition from one home to the next.

In closing, we would just like to express our gratitude to Sid for his gracious and professional service as a realtor and our thanks to him for his genuine concern for our best interests as a person.

From John and Kandice Machado

Hi Sid,

Below is the testimonial John and I have written,

In 2011 we listed our home with a realtor and had an extremely difficult time selling our home. In summary we were not satisfied with the realtor we had originally chosen. We eventually took our house of the market while we evaluated our options. My husband and I had received a recommendation to use Sid Yar and took an opportunity to meet with him. We were extremely impressed with Sid from the very beginning. We found he was extremely honest with us regarding the options in our home, minor improvements we should make before re-listing and the price...which is always difficult. More important to us he took our concerns seriously and treated us respectfully, almost like family. We decided to list with Sid and were further impressed as he communicated regularly with us and took the selling of our home very seriously.
With Sid's recommendations, his experience as a Realtor and professional level of service our home sold within two weeks for more than asking price! We highly recommend Sid to all our family and friends...you definitely won't go wrong with Sid representing your interests.

The following letter is a recommendation for Sid Yar, at the Remax Excellence office in Edmonton, Alberta.

As first time homebuyers, we had our fears about even speaking with a Real Estate Agent. We blindly walked into an office, and spoke with Sid over the phone. Within a few hours, we met him in person. He was friendly, and assured us he could help ease the fears of first time homebuyers, and would find us our home.


As we were from out of Province, we were racing against time. We had ten days to find a house. The next week was full of ups and downs. Sid was amazing. He worked all hours of the day on finding us a house. He was incredible at giving us feedback on the houses we looked at. From our experience, Sid is extremely knowledgeable, honest, trustworthy, and most of all, cares about the well being of his clients. He will do everything in his power to make his clients dreams come true (including driving to unknown places in the country and getting lost).


I am grateful we fell into his arms when we were so lost. We could not have asked for a better agent. We will be using Sid as an Agent in the future, as well as sending friends and family to him. Without a doubt, I highly recommend Sid for all your Real Estate needs.
