Welcome to my Website
I've been a REALTOR® with Century 21 for 13 years. The industry and technology have changed a great deal in that time, however, the constant continues to be people. Technology will never take the place of relationships, trust, expertise and a wonderful customer service experience.
What I most enjoy about what I do is advising and educating clients about real estate. I enjoy continual learning and improving my knowledge about the market, legal aspects and regulations of real estate. One's home is often their biggest asset so it's important to find a true professional to guide you. It's also important to find someone who you trust and know will work hard to help you obtain your goals.
I specialize in Airdrie and NW Calgary, areas I know and love. I enjoy working with both buyers and sellers. I particularly enjoy working with people relocating to the area, as I love to inform them about all the area has to offer. I've worked with several relocation companies, helping families find homes they love in their new city.
It’s important to me to keep up to date on best practices. As such, I’ve earned the Accredited Buyer's Representative Designation ABR® and the Certified Condominium Specialist designation CCS®.
When my family moved from The Pas, Manitoba to Airdrie in 1980 it was a vastly different place! It was a great place to grow up - small and friendly. It’s still friendly, albeit bigger, but has many more services and amenities for families, as a result.
After graduating from the University of Calgary with a Bachelor of Commerce degree in Marketing, I moved into Calgary to live and work in various industries. I lived in Toronto for 2.5 years but returned to family and the mountains in 2000. After my 2nd child I decided to follow in my father’s footsteps (www.MiltBrandson.ca) to pursue a career in real estate, work that he continues to enjoy after 40 years.
I am a wife and mother of two teenage boys. I enjoy being a Mum and supporting my kids in their endeavours, namely hockey and rugby. My husband and I love being active in the outdoors and try to spend time as a family hiking, cross country skiing and downhill skiing.
I was a figure skater growing up and a few of the highlights were achieving Gold Level in ice dancing, and skating in the Closing Ceremonies of the 1988 Winter Olympics.
I’ve been a runner all my life and ran track with Calgary Track West and the University of Calgary Dinos as a middle distance runner. Over the years I increased my racing distance to half and full marathons. I qualified for the Boston Marathon and ran it in April 2014. I've now completed 3 marathons.
