Friday, March 25, 2011 - New Growth For Spring!

Greetings everyone,   I have great news besides the fact that winter is almost over and we may yet see grass again. Aside from that I am very happy to announce that CIR Realty will be my new Brokerage. I was quite comfortable with Calgary First Real Estate but they decided to shut down to persure new areas for their careers.

Friday, February 5, 2010 - Airdrie and Calgary Real Estate Market!

Airdrie is still on the slow side compared to previous years with about 300 active listings. New homes are following suit and waiting like most people for a full recovery ... Full Article...

What a turn around! The Calgary Real Estate Board posted stats for last December showing just over 300 sales for a board area covering over 1 million people. Yes it was extremely slow.All that has chaged thanks to the drop in prices after a boom period and the lowest interest rates in Canadian history. This has spurred the entry level, first time buyers into action and has seen things heat up substantially. You just can?t hold people down forever.Our government is also talking about no ...

Tuesday, January 13, 2009 - The Market Watch!

That's what I am calling it most buyers are sitting and watching for now. And who can blame them. After talking with many Airdrie and Calgary realtors the overall view is that much of the speculator held property has been sold and we appear to be slowly moving into a more balanced market.
