About Andrea McKen: Calgary Realtor

Professional Background

Before becoming a REALTOR®, I worked for a major oil company in Calgary as a Marketing Manager for several years. This was an excellent opportunity to develop my marketing skills, put my business and sociology degrees to good use and grow professionally from a student to a career-oriented person. Overtime, I developed an interest in real estate when the market in Calgary boomed in 2006. I also discovered I sincerely enjoyed helping others and realized I lacked this customer touch in my career. I left oil and gas in 2010, immediately fulfilled my educational and licensing requirements to become a REALTOR® and started my career in real estate with Calgary Independent Realty (CIR) shortly thereafter.

Personal Background

I am a wife and mom to my young son. Being a mom is truly a wonderful role! My son has taught me to understand what really is important in life and he’s helped me better my organization and time management skills. Other than the busy mom duties I entail having a toddler, I also enjoy reading a good book, water sports in the summer months and skiing in the wintertime.

My Commitment

My goal as your REALTOR® is to work for YOU. This means having a perfect understanding of your needs, what makes you really happy, and avoid the pit falls. It means working on YOUR schedule, and not pressuring you into making a decision. I believe your real estate experience should be stress-free, affordable, and fun too. YOU deserve an outstanding customer service experience and I would be honored to represent YOU in your real estate decisions.
Other than working full time as a REALTOR® I actively volunteer for the Killarney-Glengarry Community Association and I am the Babysitting Coordinator for the community.
