But, in fact I’m not. If there is one thing about Albertans, it's their resilience. Through hardship and challenging financial times, strong businesses has been forged. Alberta will rise like a Phoenix from the fire… and for now it is tough. I’m hopeful that 2017 Q2 will start to show some stability. If oil improves, that will smooth out the ride. In the meantime you can see what the young ones are sta...

 These days when you are searching online it is difficult to cut through all the bs and sometimes find exactly what you are searching for.  This is true when searching for a good real estate agent too.  There is so much marketing hype and so many agents who spend thousands of dollars trying to make themselves look like a super agent, that it is really hard to tell who is great at their job and who is just full of hot air. I have been in the Alberta real estate industry since 1993.  I have worked as an real estate Agent, as a mortgage broker,  as the Manager,Broker, and Owner of a real estate Brokerage.  In my 23 years in this industry I have helped to show, market, buy, sell, develop, or finance hundreds of millions of dollars worth of Alberta real estate.  I have worked with countless ...

 a Canadian who spent 11 years living in the desert, I am rediscovering the joys of Winter.  Living within the gates at Wilderness Club has it's own special charm during the Winter months.   As This was the view from my kitchen window this morning, isn't it beautiful? What you don't see is the golf course from this angle but Lake Koocanusa is in the back, at the base of the mountians.  Wilderness Club gets very quiet in the winter which is part of the appeal.  You may hear the occasional howling wolves but that's about it for noise.   This winter will be our second full winter living full time at Wilderness Club and I'm actually excited.  Don't get me wrong, I HATE being cold! But there is an upside to the cold.... you really enjoy warm things more! There is nothing better than coming h...

    Man I love living in Canada, specifically Western Canada.  There is a chance that I'm just extra happy because hockey's back on. None the less we constantly get told it's the best place to live in and also to invest in.  the fact is that it's true, we have good paying jobs and have an environment where entrepeneurs can propsper.  With all that the results are opportunities to enjoy and  spend money.  I'm pretty sure the next 10 years are going to be fascinating.  We have a new airport, billions spent on a downtown entertainment area including a new arena, as well as a promise to continue to prosper.  Edmonton seems to be the perfect size, big enough to have World class status and small enough to always know you will run into someone you know.

Canada's mortgage party has come to an abrupt halt, reports Grant Robertson with The Globe and Mail. The bonanza of dirt-cheap mortgages offered by some of the country’s biggest lenders in recent weeks has been shut down sooner than expected, as banks pull their offers in the face of higher funding costs and concerns over dwindling profit margins.
