Happy Space, Happy Team

As Top Agents, aren’t you really busy? We’ve been asked this very question.

The short answer, yes. But that’s because we are passionate about what we do, and we are full-time Realtors. The long answer, we have a well-oiled machine, for a team behind us, supporting everything we do and ensuring all of our customers receive the best experience! There is no such thing as “too busy” in our world. If anything, the busyness, and the important rolls of each person in our office, allows us to provide BETTER customer service.

We have set up a solid system that allows us to succeed, and each team member has her strength. Nichole is always on the ball, and she has this calmness to her that our customers just love. Lianne is our second set of eyes and she ensures all the paperwork is completed, and completed with all Ts crossed....

Gratitude + Passion

Gratitude + Passion

We just wrapped up another successful customer appreciation event (our Summerfest party), and we wanted to take a moment to reflect on why we do what we do. And we don’t mean hosting parties, we mean our true passion for the job that we show up to EVERYDAY.

Real estate doesn’t have to be a fulltime job, we choose to make it our fulltime job. Being in real estate everyday allows us to be in the now, know all current comparable homes and the current market, and be able to provide the best possible guidance.

Our business is built on referrals, and we do not take that lightly. Every individual, family, and referral that comes our way becomes OUR family – our real estate family. We love our jobs. We are truly passionate about what we do, and we show up every day to help you. We are not...

I Love Sherwood Park

I Love Sherwood Park

Love. What does this “little” word mean?

By definition, love is an intense feeling of deep affection or passion for something or someone. When I say I LOVE Sherwood Park, it really comes for a deep place in my core. Sherwood Park is my birthplace, my home and the place where my family and community thrive.

I am so proud to serve the people of Sherwood Park. There is no place I would rather be.

Thank you Sherwood Park. I love you....

WHAT #1 MEANS FOR YOU | WHY USE A TOP REALTOR?
March 29, 2016 | Posted in Our Thoughts, Sherwood Stories

People who are at the top of their industry get there by doing something different than the rest. These people hold innate characteristics and qualities that get them to the top of their game.

Olympic athletes are considered the best in the world at what they do. One key factor that sets them apart is they put in more hours than the rest. On their journey to the top, when they fall, they learn from their mistakes and come out knowing more and doing better than before. They work and adapt their form until they find a powerful, Olympic stride of success. This success is consistent and it’s their ability to deliver winning performances every time that makes them an Olympian.

Top real estate agents get to the top in much the same way. They put in more hours, work with more clients, close more deals, connect with more...

Winning is More than Numbers on the Scoreboard

Winning is More than Numbers on the Scoreboard

Last week our family traveled to Airdrie for Jack’s first out-of-town hockey tournament. We were all super excited for everything the weekend had in store, but I had no idea I would walk away learning the lessons I did.

On the ice, the kids got whooped… big time – like 26 to 2, every game. In the stands, my heart was breaking for Jack and his team. I was crumbling inside thinking about how hard this is on them, how sad they must be about losing game after game. I was preparing the words of encouragement and support to lift Jack up when he got of the ice. How would they ever want to keep playing after losing so badly? How fun is it for them if they just keep losing? Oh man, I just wished they could get a win, feel a win.

When I met Jack after...

A New Year Lead with Gratitude
January 23, 2016 | Posted in Our Thoughts

Happy New Year!
With the hustle and bustle of the holiday season behind us, I am filled with gratitude for everything that was 2015 and I am looking forward to 2016!

This year felt like my best yet, especially the holidays. I really think it is all due to the age of my kids. Jack, 7, and Sophia, 5, are becoming such fun, interesting, awesome little humans. I am definitely heading into the best years of my life with my kids. The saying “every year gets better” is bang on for me.

The same goes for my work. Entering my 16th year as a REALTOR ®, I can genuinely say I am as excited about my work today, as I was my first year. My passion and joy comes 100% from you, my clients! Since I started in real estate, I have never had a year where I...

The Magic of Christmas
November 18, 2015 | Posted in Our Thoughts

Anyone who knows me knows—I love Christmas. It’s just my thing. Every year, without fail, I look forward to the holidays; for me, Christmas is about taking part in my favourite traditions, spending time with my family, and reveling in the magic of the season.

This is the time of year when my kids and I step away from the busyness of everyday life and it’s totally guilt-free, because the holidays are all about us being together. I love bringing Christmas into my home. We put up—I kid you not—four Christmas trees throughout the house, each decorated with care and a lot of giggles. We drink cocoa and watch Mickey’s Christmas Carol, something I can guarantee we will do at least ten times before the end of December.

I truly believe Sherwood Park is one of the best back-drops I could ask for at Christmas time. I love taking...

Our Night at the Edmonton Valley Zoo
July 9, 2015 | Posted in Our Thoughts

As a realtor in Sherwood Park, I have so much gratitude for all of my clients—each and every one of them is like family to me. It is so rewarding to have, in my home life, a wonderful family, but also, in my professional life as a realtor in Sherwood Park, a group of clients that I can consider to be part of my extended real estate family.

Real estate is a very intimate business: buying a home or moving is a major life milestone, and it can involve  some very emotional moments.Therefore, as a way to thank my clients, my real estate family, for trusting me as their realtor, I host a customer appreciation event for clients every second year.

A real family affair

This year’s event was held on June 20, 2015, at the Edmonton Valley Zoo  with over 600 guests gathered to...

Trina's Top 5 Things to do on Canada Day in Sherwood Park
June 26, 2015 | Posted in Our Thoughts

Sherwood Park is the place to be this Canada Day! As we celebrate our great nation’s 148th birthday, no place in Alberta has more events and activities going on in one place. From a pancake breakfast first thing in the morning to a dazzling fireworks show at night, the day is packed full with more than ten different activities–many that are free! Here is my guide to the Top 5 things you must do to celebrate Canada Day in Strathcona County:

1. Buy a Wristband: Before Canada Day, buy a $5 wristband from any of 5 locations in Sherwood Park. These wristbands are only available in advance but will give you unlimited access to the paid activities and events on Canada Day (and save you money, too):

2. Download the App: Canada Day Festival 2015 – Strathcona County App is...
