Calgary Real Estate Blog

Hello Everyone,
Just wanted to say thanks so much for the referrals last month as I made close to the Top 10 Office Producer's List. I'm taking advantage of this real estate market as home staging and marketing are allowing my listings to get offers fast and I'm negotiating good deals for my buyers right now as inventory is still a little high. I'm here to help with your real estate needs, big or small.

Don't forget to fill out your name for the CIR Realty Trip To San Diego Contest! Grand Prize Draw on November 2nd.  

Thanks,   -Nancy

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far as we are nearing the end and life returns to normal! It has been a wonderful time for me so far, spending time with family and friends and just enjoying the many festivals in and around Calgary.  

It has been a busy summer in real estate as well. The Calgary Real Estate Board (CREB) released its mid-year Update for Calgary's economic outlook which shows a better than expected resiliency in the real estate statistics. In some markets, where prices have remained stable and inventory low, we have seen continued multiple offer situation. To view the full CREB® mid-year forecast update, click here. 

If you are looking to buy, this is a great time! We expect a surge in listings in September as routines are

Thank you from Nancy!

Happy July!  Hope everyone has had a chance to take in some Calgary Stampede festivities! It's going to be another great year! I highly recommend the Superdogs show, it is great family fun and the dogs are so cute!

First, I would like to Thank You for all your support and kindness. It has provided me with the motivation to help me strive for my goals. It is with that motivation that I achieved # 3 Top Office Producer last month. I really appreciate all of you!

The Calgary market remains balanced and the drop in prices that consumers were expecting hasn't happened at this point. Buyers are taking advantage of low interest rates and a good selection of homes on the market. Overall, the Calgary residential

Hello Everyone! 

Special thanks to all who continue to support me as I received an award this month for being a Top 3 Overall Producer for my company.

Just a reminder that real estate transfer fees are going up as of July 1st, 2015 for registering new land titles and mortgage documents. However, even after the increase, fees related to real estate transfers remain lower in Alberta than other provinces. The fees for registering land titles and mortgages will be raised from $50 + $1 per $5,000 increment to $75 + $6 per $5,000 increment after July 1, 2015.

Calgary's Annual Neighbour Day is coming up on June 20th which is an excellent way to get to know your neighbours and in doing so, maybe make your community a safer place to

Spring has arrived!

My apologies for no newsletter last month as I had a terrible 3 week cold but still managed to help 6 clients get the sale of their homes. I know the media is saying sales and prices are dropping but don't believe everything you hear. I am producing results in this competitive market! Anything I can do to help you or someone you know just ask! 

Special thanks to Neel Roberts, Sharon Numerow, Kevin & Betty Saskiw and Karen Chambers for the referrals. A special thank you has been mailed to you :-) I appreciate your continued support.

Dear Valued Clients, Friends and Colleagues,

It is one of the best times to buy real estate that Calgary has seen for a couple years now. For buyers, it is a great opportunity to earn some equity or move up to a larger home for less.

For sellers, the balanced market still offers a very reasonable return on your investment. It is more important than ever now to find a Realtor® who is keeping close tabs on the home values and has the experience in this type of market to move your property.

If you have any questions, I am always available to answer them or shoot me a quick email! If you know someone who is concerned about their real estate situation or thinking of buying or selling real estate, feel free to give them my contact info. I love your

Hi Everyone,

Hope you are enjoying your February so far! I felt very fortunate to be able to spend the Family Day weekend with my family and treat them to a meal. I was especially lucky to receive some referrals and managed to make #3 Top Office Producer for 2014 and #3 Top Office Producer for January 2015! I put in a lot of hard work and care into providing the best service and support for my clients and referrals and I am so honoured to see my efforts come to fruition. I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciate your continued support.

Do you know of anyone looking to buy or sell a home? I help clients all over the world, not just Calgary as I continue to develop relationships with Realtors across the globe. Many refer clients to call

Dear Valued Clients, Friends and Colleagues,
Just a quick note to say thanks for your continued support as the referrals I receive are so appreciated. 
Because of your continued loyalty, I made #3 Office Producer Overall 2014, Top Female Office Producer Overall 2014 and #25 Company Wide 2014. It is my greatest business achievement to date but none of it would be possible without all of you!!

Wishing you all the best for 2015.

Happy Holidays Everyone,

Feeling blessed! I found out I was the # 1 Realtor out of my office last month and was the # 2 Realtor out of the entire company! That is my highest record to date and a great way to celebrate my 11th year in real estate.

Here are a few photos of my Seniors Corner Group that I started 7 years ago. We had a Christmas party and these volunteers help keep it a success. If you know a lonely senior, please let me know as they meet monthly to do a fun activity. Aren't they adorable?

I'm hoping you all get some time to relax during the holidays and know that

Hello Everyone,

November has year-over-year sales up by 14% and benchmark pricing up almost 9.5% for overall Calgary residential. Surrounding towns and cities continue to prosper as well offering more choices for buyers. With the expansion of Calgary communities, it will not be long until cities like Airdrie or Okotoks are just a step away. New communities such as Walden and Mahogany in the south and Evansridge in the north, just choosing a community to settle with is hard enough. 

This month I celebrated 11 years in real estate and 10 years as a home stager.  I just want to thank everyone for their continued support as it has been a pleasure helping so many of you.  I continue to receive your referrals and they are very much appreciated.
