I was born in Ireland to my parents James and Edna Linster. My dad was a farmer who sold the family farm and moved to Canada in 1957.
In September of 1973, I started classes at the University of Calgary and graduated in April of 1977 with a degree in Economics and History.
I started my real estate career in January 1978. I have always focused on the inner city. In 1986, I joined RE/MAX Real Estate (Central) which has been the top producing real estate office in the world for the last 9/10 years!
My business is primarily in the inner city, dealing with older homes in the re-sale market, condominiums, revenue properties and re-development of infill homes.
I look forward to being your realtor. Please give me a call at (403) 620-2222.

PattyJanuary 20th 2017My wife and I worked with John and his team twice, once in 2008 to purchase our Sunnyside Home, and again in 2012 to sell it. When it came time to sell John was the obvious choice. His experience in this part of Calgary, his easygoing but on-point way of doing business and his proven results brought us back. We did the right thing in checking out other local realtors, but John was the clear and final choice.
John was especially helpful as we had already left Calgary and weren’t around during the sale and marketing of our home. He went above and beyond to see that things came together, provided updates, was in touch immediately to prevent or resolve issues and responded quickly when we had questions. When the furnace of our home died during a cold snap and we were on the other side of the country, John and his team got things sorted and took it all in stride.
When it came time to consider a lower-than-ask offer, John’s coaching had us stand firm to the price he’d advised us to set and the sale closed above what we’d hoped for.
I recommend John and his team without hesitation.5.00005

anonymousNovember 29th 2015I have known John and worked with him over the past several years. He helped me with the sale and purchase of homes and, in both instances, he has proven to be knowledgeable, thorough and extremely conscientious. What I really like about John is that he makes you feel important and that you are his only client even though I know that is not true.
Whenever I ask a question, if John doesn't know the answer "at his finger tips", he finds out and lets me know right away. I would highly recommend john and his team to anyone contemplating listing or buying a property.
