I’ve joined a new Real Estate team!

I celebrated my birthday this year by launching a new phase for my real estate career.  After 16 very satisfying years within a family-owned real estate office, I have ventured into the networked world of CIR Realty.  I welcome you all to my new offices where I continue to meet the needs of buyers and sellers looking for homes, lease properties, businesses, or industrial property.

The changing nature of the regional real estate market was a major motivation. I felt that taking advantage of connections with the Calgary real estate community would result in more opportunity for our region. The individuals I have met during the first weeks in CIR have definitely given me support, encouragement and ideas for a host of new approaches for marketing and featuring our community for investment.

The  attraction of business and industry and development of new jobs in our area has been a long-standing added objective of mine. This is a natural carry-over from my previous role as Director of Economic Development for Olds, and prior to that as the Executive Director of a regional grouping of small rural communities in Central Alberta who worked together to grow their communities.  My experience in the whole range of real estate and economic development issues makes me the ideal choice for comprehensive service – assisting with resources and networking to ensure integration into the community with ease and the least stress.

While I have been focussing on many housekeeping issues necessary in the transition to CIR Realty, I feel this website is very worthwhile to my customers and newcomers to our community. I welcome you to contribute with comments on my website and blogs, and hope that together we can continue to improve this website as a source of information, connection to the community, and a one-stop portal to many of the resources and activities that make Olds and area such an attractive region in which to live, work and play.
