This wasn’t a easy property to sell, and you got it done…..”

Thank you so much for getting this sold – This wasn’t an easy property to sell, and you got it done – Congratulations!
Right from the beginning, I knew you were a Pro – with the great pictures you took, the presentation you created, and the online marketing plan you put together. The property got a lot of exposure.

You also kept me well informed and communicated on a regular basis. It’s obvious that you are well organized, trustworthy, and highly experienced.

All the best

Thank you for your help and patience…..”

Thank you for your help and patience as we worked through the process of selling the farmland we inherited from our Father. You were a pleasure to work with and offered good guidance in terms of pricing and positioning the property for sale.  Your insight was most useful to us, since none of my siblings or I lived in the area.

I particularly want to thank you and your staff for stepping in prior to the closing and working with the attorneys to ensure that everything came together as needed.

Thanks again for your help!

Dear Allen,

Thank you for your diligence…..”

Thank you for your diligence in responding to my inquiries and sending me listings of homes and land per my request and specifications.  I have decided on a property and have come to the end of my search. Brief as it was, I have appreciated the professionalism and promptness I received while communicating with you and your staff.

You never pressured us to buy any parcel….”

Hi, Allen,

Thanks very much for all your help in our land search.  When it came to land, we had a very hard time finding a responsive realtor.   You never pressured us to buy any parcel you knew wouldn’t be a fit for us, and we appreciated you making yourself available anytime, even if it was an evening or weekend.  We’re happy with what we purchased, and without the benefit of your expertise, our search would have been very difficult (and probably still in progress).  Thanks again!

Traci & Michael

I wanted to take a minute to thank you…..”

Hi Allen,
I wanted to take a minute to thank you for the nice letter you sent out. We are all bombarded with emails every day which makes impossible to read them all. Don’t know why I opened yours, but did. I was touched with your generosity of time, something we never have enough of and yet you are willing to give some of yours away to enlighten and or help someone in the past I did call  with a question and you answered. I was so impressed with your generosity.
Have a great day Allen.

Your expertise on generating an effective marketing campaign..”

To: Allen Olmsted

As a fellow realtor, when my family decided to liquidate several parcels of land, it seemed natural to list the properties with my own firm. However, after carefully considering your reputation as a land specialist, I ultimately decided to list with your company.

Due to family members input beyond my control, the decided asking price for all parcels was clearly “above the norm” and your assessment was correct that the only possible way to realize that goal was to find that “one buyer who considers it valuable to them.” Granted, sometimes success in real estate involves timing and circumstance, but it was your expertise in generating an effective marketing campaign and closely following all leads which found that “one buyer” for each of our properties.

My experience as an agent has been focused on single family homes, so never could I have imagined having accomplished what you did, and consequently, having your company represent out family was one of my best decisions. In addition to being conscientious, you are one of the most honest and ethical agents I have ever been privileged to work with.

Best wishes in your future endeavors.

If I had to sell farm land, I would use Allen Olmsted….”

If I had to sell farm land or any property, I would use Allen Olmsted of Canaan Realty exclusively. He is a man of benevolence, high caliber,  cares about the welfare of his clients, and is trustworthy. Allen is steadfast, and has always championed a positive attitude in our conversations. Because of his years of experience, his advice is cutting edge. Allen is not about pressure. He discusses, presents different avenues for his client to follow, then both parties agreeing on the correct path to follow.

In this world there are three classes: first class, champagne, and imperial. Allen Olmsted and Canaan Realty are all three wrapped up into one. Without reservation, and without hesitation, I would use this man in any land selling venture. Be fortunate to have this man on your side.

Canaan Realty’s office staff is congenial.  You will enjoy speaking with Grace.

Sending thanks to the entire team…”

Thank you for all the work you did…”

Thank you for all of the work you did to find just the right property for me. Every time I go there I like it more. You were very professional, and patient as we looked at several pieces. I will not hesitate to refer anyone looking for land to you.

You did a lot of research for my wife and I when we were on the verge of buying land….”

Several months ago, you did a lot of research for my wife and I when we were on the verge of buying some land. When we realized that our son would best benefit from a house in an established development, our plans changed.

I wanted to thank you for the help you provided to us. Your service was outstanding- far above the vast majority of your colleagues in the real estate profession.

I am a woodworker by hobby and thought you would enjoy a custom pen. I made this one myself, from a wood called Bocote. I hope you will use it for many years in good health and success.

With sincerity and warm regards,

Adam Stewart

Wanted to give you some type of formal thank you letter for all your efforts..”

We wanted to give you some type of formal Thank You letter for all your efforts over more than a year and a half to properly market and help put the sellers and a good buyer together to “pass on the properties known as skyridge”.

Your help and consideration with all the family members questions and concerns over the course of marketing nd the sale process is truly appreciated by everyone. (You and I and a lot of others know there was so much involved with this prcticular property).

Also thanks to Grace, for her efforts, we appreciate someone to be the office support person to answer phones, questions, and everything else at the appropriate time.

Allen, you really have many talents that make you great in this line of work (Shall I list a few…).

We’ll keep in touch, obviously.

Thank you,


The Tuttle family

Mark and I wish to extend our deepest appreciation for the outstanding job that you and your company did in handling the sale of  our land on Belle Isle Road in Camillus.

You, Allen, and your entire office have treated Mark and I in a sensitive, professional and extremely capable manner. We are amazed and most grateful for the exceptional way that you successfully brokered the sale of the land.

Kudos to you and your staff!  Syracuse and surrounding area are indeed fortunate to have a sales broker of your caliber to turn to.

Please know that we will spread your name far and wide in our travels. And should the need arise in our future to sell  real estate ~ you are the man we want on board.
